Arseblog - Thu Dec 14 6:00 PM
After yet another sluggish start to a game at St. Mary’s on Sunday, it didn’t take long for the chant of “Soooooper, Super Jack….” began to fill the cold afternoon air. Just 15 minutes into the game, the away end called for its anointed idol. This has happened regularly at away matches this seaso...

Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video A couple of weeks ago, despite the fact we’d lost 3-1 to a Jose Mourinho managed Man United, there was some positivity after the final whistle because of how we’d played. Sure, we’d handed them the goals on a silver platter, but that wasn’t ...

More Premier League action, and another away trip. It’s not a big trip tonight, in fairness, but it is still away at West Ham. After the draw with Southampton, Arsene Wenger has a couple of big decisions to make about his team selection tonight. First up: Defence With Shkodran Mustafi still injur...
Arseblog - Tue Dec 12 7:57 AM
After a disappointing away day at Southampton on Sunday, we don’t have long to wait to have the chance to put that right, with another game on the road. It’s West Ham at the Freebie Stadium tomorrow night, and Arsene Wenger has got some thinking to do about his team. We don’t know for sure … Th...

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. On today’s show we look back on the disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton, and what was another careless opening from Arsenal. We discuss the lack of creativity, the Alexis Sanchez giveaway situation...

Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video Having started so disastrously last weekend against Man Utd, you would have hoped that Arsenal would ensure that – at the very least – they didn’t make any early mistakes against Southampton, but within three minutes we were behind. Per Merte...
Arseblog - Sun Dec 10 9:25 AM
A 12 noon kick off makes the shelf life of this blog so short I’m wondering is it even worth bothering with. Especially when you wake up later than you’d wanted to on a Sunday morning, but if there’s any morning when waking up late is acceptable it’s Sunday morning so now I simply have … The po...
Arseblog - Sat Dec 9 10:02 AM
Morning all, happy Saturday to you, and here’s a quick round-up of what’s going on today. There’s some early team news ahead of tomorrow with Arsene Wenger ruling Shkodran Mustafi out of the trip to Southampton. Some will ask if this ruling out is the same ruling out he did with Mesut Ozil ahead...
Arseblog - Fri Dec 8 2:25 PM
Ah, Arsenal, you are a perplexing mistress. For 79 minutes on Saturday last you were beguiling, exhilarating, a pleasure to watch. We created chance after chance after chance, almost three dozen of them, forcing Mr. De Gea into FOURTEEN saves. Unfortunately these were the last 79 minutes of the m...

Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast – the Arsenal podcast. On this week’s show I chat with James from @gunnerblog about the 6-0 win over BATE Borisov, some redemption for the likes of Mathieu Debuchy and Theo Walcott, a great performance from Jack Wilshere, the manager’s decision to go bac...
Arseblog - Fri Dec 8 7:15 AM
Match report – Player ratings – Video There may not have been many there to see it, but Arsenal put on a show for those who did turn up. The smallest crowd of the season saw the biggest win of the season, a 6-0 thumping of a BATE Borisov side who, let’s be honest, weren’t … The post Arsenal 6-0...

Step right up, step right up. Europa League fun and frolics for all the family lie ahead. See the incredible bearded man, the young boy who never grew up, and Ice-Skating Jack. Those of us hoping to see Arsene Wenger throw out a team full of young talent for tonight’s game against BATE Borisov ar...
Arseblog - Wed Dec 6 6:00 PM
Whilst it feels as though it would require some kind of bloody coup to remove Arsene Wenger from his current post, Arsenal are making cosmetic changes behind the scenes to transform the club from a benevolent dictatorship to a more modern sporting organisation. Sven Mislintat replaces Steve Rowle...
Arseblog - Wed Dec 6 7:04 AM
First up this morning, a thank you to everyone who listens to the Arsecast and Arsecast Extra. This month we’re through the 1, 000, 000 downloads/listens barrier and I just wanted to say how much I appreciate you all taking the time to put us in your ears on a Monday and Friday. We’d be shouting...
Arseblog - Tue Dec 5 7:29 AM
Later this week our focus turns to the Europa League with our final game of the not-that-enthralling group stages. Arsenal have already topped the group so it’s a game that could give Arsene Wenger the chance to experiment a bit with his team, but I suspect he’s going to play it relatively safe....
Arseblog - Mon Dec 4 1:53 PM
Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. This week’s show was recorded in Dublin with James and an extra Extra guest, Andrew Allen. We look back on the weekend’s game against Man United, the performance, the defensive errors, Arsenal’s respon...
Arseblog - Mon Dec 4 6:56 AM
Happy Monday to you, welcome to another week and with Europa League action it’s Sunday until we can get back into the Premier League saddle. I have a few more thoughts on some of the things that went on during/after the United game, so I’m going to do them by category. Mustafi’s injury Arsene Wen...
Arseblog - Sun Dec 3 9:00 AM
Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video Where to start? The result, I guess. We lost. Yes, we played well, apart from the glaring errors which cost us goals – which I find hard to separate from our overall performance, dominated possession and chances, but for me that makes what ha...
Arseblog - Sat Dec 2 7:58 AM
With seven wins from seven in the Premier League this season, Arsenal have a solid record to protect when Manchester United come to town later today. They have a four point lead over us in the table, a win would cut that to one, and cap what has been a very decent week for us … The post Arsenal...
Arseblog - Fri Dec 1 9:46 PM
Arseblog note: Due to circumstances beyond my control, last week’s post Sp*rs review was not posted. Thus, this week is a double header, starting with the most current and then onto the glorious fisting of that lot. This week An ancestor of mine, William the Conqueror, waged a series of campaigns...
Arseblog - Fri Dec 1 7:42 AM
Welcome to Friday folks, and it’s been quite an interesting week all things considered. Since Sunday we’ve won a tough away game in fun fashion – fun for us that is, not for the opposition; we racked up another three points and improved our goal difference considerably with a 5-0 win over Hudders...
Arseblog - Fri Dec 1 6:56 AM
Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast – the Arsenal podcast. On this week’s show I’m joined by Philippe Auclair to discuss the 5-0 win over Huddersfield, the beauty of Arsenal’s goals, and Mesut Ozil’s contribution, before we move on to the recent appointments of Raul Sanllehi as ‘Head of Fo...
Arseblog - Thu Nov 30 5:43 PM
One of the potential upsides for the remainder of Arsenal’s season is that the Alexis, Özil and Lacazette partnership has not had an opportunity to entirely gel. Injury and tactical tinkering has kept the triumvirate apart and all three players have been relatively slow to hit their stride this s...
Arseblog - Thu Nov 30 7:38 AM
Match report – Player ratings – Video Arsenal made it seven wins from seven at home in the Premier League this season, and racked up the biggest win of the campaign thus far with a 5-0 hammering of Huddersfield last night. However, it wasn’t quite as one-sided as the scoreline suggests. We opened...
Arseblog - Wed Nov 29 7:47 AM
We’re back in the Premier League saddle tonight with a home game against newly promoted Huddersfield. On paper a fixture people would expect Arsenal to cruise, but anyone who has seen them this season will know we should take nothing for granted. They’ve beaten Manchester United at home and almos...
Arseblog - Tue Nov 28 7:39 AM
Arsene Wenger became the president of the US in my dream, leaving a vacancy at Arsenal which many speculated would be filled by a top name manager. Instead, we appointed the police guy from Stranger Things and his first signing for the club was Nigel Winterburn who he’d talked out of retirement t...
Arseblog - Mon Nov 27 10:59 AM
Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. This week we discuss yet another injury time win over Burnley, what a lovely man Lee Mason is, and how the outrage of the opposition fans was like sweet, sweet music to our ears. It pushes Arsenal into...
Arseblog - Mon Nov 27 7:28 AM
Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video In all my many years of watching Arsenal, I can’t remember a sequence of games and late wins like the ones we’ve had over Burnley in recent times. Last season at Turf Moor there was that late, weird goal by Laurent Koscielny which, in …
Arseblog - Sun Nov 26 9:33 AM
Premier League action today as we face Burnley at Turf Moor, and it’s a chance to put some distance between us and them – given how unexpectedly well they’ve been doing – but it’s also an opportunity to put some icing on last week’s North London derby cake. Sp*rs drew 1-1 with managerless West Br...
Arseblog - Sat Nov 25 7:37 AM
Blogs was up very late last night dealing with something far more important than Arsenal so I’m going to run through a quick Saturday morning round-up before I head to my day job…a day job that doesn’t usually involve Saturday work but does today because for one November weekend every year global...
