Arseblog - Sun Nov 18 9:19 AM
Little known fact: Arsenal have more players with double-barrelled names than any other club in the Premier League. When you add together the first team and the reserves & youth, we actually have more than all the other clubs put together. Whether it’s down to indecisive parenting or something el...

The prospect of a European Super League is one that has been on the horizon for some time, the idea being that the biggest clubs on the continent could form their own league separate from their domestic ones to fight for a prize that has yet to be invented. In the 2000s we had the …

ALL HAIL SAINT BERNARD One day soon, dear friends, this unbeaten run, which currently feels like a string of defeats, is going to come to an end. Yet that day was not Sunday. And for that, we can thank one man, our shiny new glove butler Bernard ‘The Gurnard’ Leonard. Consider the *reaches for sp...

Unsure where to start this morning, I don’t want to say too much about the Richard Scudamore situation because I talk about it on the brand new Arsecast (which you can listen and subscribe to here as well as down at the bottom), but at the same time it’s still a grotty, unpleasant situation. To …

Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast – the Arsenal podcast. It’s the Interlull but we still have a show for you, and today I chat to the BBC’s David Ornstein about Reiss Nelson. David was in Germany to chat to the on-loan Arsenal youngster who is making a big impact in the Bundesliga, so …

Much has divided Arsenal fans in recent years, especially during the second half of Arsene Wenger’s reign as the manager’s presence became a constant source of conflict. Like all fandoms of sufficient size, football fandom has its cliques; everybody experiences the game in a slightly different wa...

Day four of the Interlull. The men are beginning to get restless. Just this morning I found Corporal Jenkinson recreating a famous battle using cones on the training ground. He kept saying something about ‘Ryo’. It’s tough to hear them lament the loss of their fallen comrades, but this is the har...

Day after day as I walk through Dublin’s city centre, I am saddened by the sight of so many homeless people. People in sleeping bags in alcoves and under awnings. People begging for change for a hostel – a particularly difficult one as the people seeking shelter far outweigh the available beds an...
Arseblog - Tue Nov 13 7:18 AM
As we head into another Interlull, but thankfully the final one until some time next year, Unai Emery will have plenty to think about before our Premier League campaign gets underway again with a trip to Bournemouth on November 25th. Clearly this is a team that has issues defensively but you can...

Match report – Player ratings – Video After the positivity of last weekend’s draw with Liverpool, yesterday’s 1-1 with Wolves feels very much like two points dropped, even if Arsenal might consider themselves lucky to have taken anything from the game at all. But for some fantastic saves by Bernd...
Arseblog - Sun Nov 11 10:10 PM
Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. On this week’s show the disappointing 1-1 draw with Wolves at home. We’re used to bad first halves, but we got a bad second half too, and should we start to ask questions of Unai Emery for what is a co...

Arseblog - Sun Nov 11 9:21 AM
With the homeless goblins (©aallensport) having won yesterday, and with Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea all playing today, there’s some pressure on Arsenal to take all three points against Wolves. A win would leave us in 5th position, but just a point behind Sp*rs as we head into another Interlul...

Morning. A quick Saturday round-up for you, and there’s still only one place to start, and that’s Danny Welbeck. Yesterday the club provided a small update as to his condition, saying: Significant right ankle injury. Danny remains in hospital and will continue to be assessed. A further update wil...

Many of you will have noticed that Mr. Paul Merson, afore last weekends matchup with Liverpool, had predicted a resounding Liverpool victory. “If they don’t lose by more than three goals next week, I’ll be shocked. They’re not in the same class as this Liverpool team. If Liverpool turn up and the...

Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast – the Arsenal podcast. Arsenal qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League with a 0-0 draw against Sporting, but the main focus is on the apparently serious injury sustained by Danny Welbeck. I’m joined by Tayo Popoola to discuss the game, the...

Match report – Player ratings – Video Arsenal’s 0-0 draw with Sporting last night isn’t one of those games that will go down in the annals as a classic. We huffed and puffed but despite plenty of possession we never really threatened them with any consistency. The draw, thanks to Vorskla losing t...

Arseblog - Thu Nov 8 6:47 AM
It’s Europa League action tonight as we take on Sporting at the Emirates. As I wrote the other day, a win would see us top the group, thus enabling us to rest players for the final two games which would be beneficial when you look at our Premier League schedule. Not only that, it would …
Arseblog - Wed Nov 7 5:30 PM
Last week, I wrote a piece analysing the differences that are beginning to emerge between last season’s Arsenal compared to the current model. My conclusion was that, at this stage, Unai has taken care of a lot of the low hanging fruit- or the ‘quick wins’ in corporate parlance. The team runs fas...
Arseblog - Wed Nov 7 6:54 AM
A little over twelve years ago I sat down in front of my computer, propped up a Samson C01U USB mic in an Arsenal pewter mug full of pens and pencils, and recorded the very first Arsecast. At that point, we were still very much in the ‘What’s a blog?!’ era, so it was necessary …

Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast – the Arsenal podcast. In this 500th episode of the podcast, I chat to Romain Molina, the author of a new book about Unai Emery. ‘El Maestro’ gives us a fascinating insight into the man and the manager, and Romain has spoken to Emery himself, as well as …
Arseblog - Tue Nov 6 7:51 AM
If the fixture list at the beginning of the season threw up two very difficult fixtures to start the campaign, what we’ve had to face subsequently has been relatively kind. Liverpool on Saturday was the first of the big teams we’ve had to face since then, while the rest of this week – before anot...
Arseblog - Mon Nov 5 7:25 AM
As someone who watches the majority of Arsenal games on TV, it’s always interesting to see the stuff the cameras don’t show you when you go to a game. The off the ball movement of players the far side of the field; communication (or lack of) between players; what the manager is doing on the …
Arseblog - Sun Nov 4 7:04 PM
Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. This week we’re looking at the 1-1 draw against Liverpool and a performance which was a real positive under Unai Emery. The character to come from behind, Alexandre Lacazette’s brilliant goal, the grow...
Arseblog - Sun Nov 4 9:44 AM
Match report – Player ratings – Video I said in yesterday’s preview blog that if we got something from the game against Liverpool, we should see it as a positive and I think that’s very much the case this morning. I should point out that I’m writing this blog having seen almost no replays or …
Arseblog - Sat Nov 3 5:53 AM
When you’re facing a team with some serious attacking talent, the very least you hope for is that you’ve got your best defenders available. As it is, we still don’t know if Hector Bellerin is going to be available for today’s game against Liverpool, or if we’ll even have a left back. In one of …
Arseblog - Fri Nov 2 1:43 PM
Ah, the ‘teatime kick-off’. The phrase always calls to mind some chimps, stuffed to the gills with iced buns and orange squash, attempting to assert dominance over one another in a zoological gardens. And in recent years this has certainly been the case at the Emirates. Tomorrow’s cocktail hour v...
Arseblog - Fri Nov 2 6:58 AM
Are two heads better than one? I suppose if you were to ask Zaphod Beeblebrox he would tell you yes, yes they are, but then it begs the question, in this context at least, as to whether or not you really want the third cousin of Ford Prefect in charge of your football club. I …
Arseblog - Fri Nov 2 5:30 AM
Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast – the Arsenal podcast. Arsenal face Liverpool at the Emirates this weekend, in what is the biggest test for Unai Emery since the opening two game of the season. The Gunners have taken a fantastic 22 points from 24, but this is where we see if real progre...
