Finishing below Tottenham 0

Posted on July 24, 2020 by Harry Kettle

St Totteringham’s Day has been cancelled.

For yet another year, Arsenal have failed to finish above Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, inviting a parade of questions regarding their ability to actually dethrone Spurs as the dominant force in North London. We already saw Jose Mourinho’s men win the derby a few weeks ago, and while the Gunners have certainly been making progress under Mikel Arteta, the inconsistency that they’ve shown along the way has been alarming, to say the least.

Given how poor Tottenham have been throughout the course of the campaign, you’d have to think this is a real low point for Arsenal – but it should also serve as real motivation.

After a great deal of build-up, Arsenal fans were left feeling desolate on Sunday evening as they were beaten 2-1 by bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby. It was a real battle between the two sides with the Gunners often looking like the better team, but when push came to shove, they just couldn’t keep Spurs out – and they were made to pay for missing a handful of chances.

Mikel Arteta has indeed instilled a new sense of team play since he stepped into the Emirates dugout, there can be no doubt about that. However, the defeat in the North-London Derby on Sunday has highlighted the same problems the Gunners have been struggling with for a very long time.

Arteta has indeed increased Arsenal’s ability to control games. The high possession percentage from the Derby (62%) backs that up, albeit with a slight reservation given that Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho rarely ever cared about his teams seeing more of the ball. But once again it mostly comes down to individual mistakes.

It’s been a rollercoaster ride of a season for Arsenal fans, with more downs than ups, and the same could arguably be said for their mini-campaign since the restart.

‘Lean’ transfer window ahead for Arsenal 0

Posted on May 27, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

As the Premier League and the 20 clubs competing in it prepare for a return to action behind closed doors next month, the time-frame of the upcoming transfer window remains undetermined. The extent of the financial consequences of the current situation, the effect that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on all clubs, is also yet to be fully felt.

One thing that remains unchanged is that Arsenal, like every other top club across Europe, continue to be linked with a large number of potential signings. However, Matt Law of The Telegraph claims that the Gunners, along with their fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur, wont have any money to spend on incoming transfers unless they sell some of their top stars.

Three Arsenal fixtures rescheduled 0

One of the minor trials and tribulations that comes with being a Premier League club is the constant fixture changes that we all have to deal with. Teams up and down the league will their plans and preparations change, sometimes fairly dramatically, all in the name of television coverage.

While we all enjoy watching a game at home from time to time, especially if you’re a neutral, it can get a little bit frustrating to see the overwhelming power and influence that these television companies have over a league with the sort of reputation that the Premier League commands.

Arsenal linked with Adam Lallana 0

Posted on February 07, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to Liverpool Echo, Adam Lallana is set to leave Liverpool at the end of the season. That’s when his contract expires, and a decision has been reached that there wouldn’t be any talks about a new deal.

Lallana left Southampton as an attacking midfielder and joined Liverpool back in 2014, when the Merseysiders were under the command of current Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers. The current Leicester City boss deployed him in that role too, as did Jurgen Klopp upon his arrival. But as the German too charge of his first full season at the club, he changed his formation to 4-3-3 and Lallana played most of the 2016/17 as a box-to-box runner, where he was extremely efficient. He was a crucial part of the team which managed to fight their way back to the Champions League at the end of that season, at the expense of none other than Arsenal.
