Arsenal Ease Up and Surrender Two Points.

For the second Sunday in a row, Arsenal were pegged back from 2-0 up to draw. We strode into the lead with two sublime goals in the first ten minutes, but never recovered from conceding a sloppy penalty. After the break Bowen made it 2-2 when he seized on a hopeful looping ball. It could […]

Arsenal Survive Anfield and Paul Tierney.

We have Ramsdale’s acrobatics, Liverpool’s profligacy, and a lot of last-ditch defending to thank for a draw, gouged from a punishing trip to Anfield.  We started off with confidence and style, striding to a two-goal lead, but were pegged back, first before half-time by Salah and then late by a Firmino header.  Liverpool’s momentum grew […]

Fear Creeps In As Finish Line Approaches!

Hello all, Today we look back at Leeds and forward to Liverpool, while worrying about the difficulty of the run in. Pedantic George.

Disjointed Arsenal Click at the Right Time.

Arsenal stuttered to a comfortable 4-1 win against Leeds on Saturday. And if the idea of stuttering to that margin of victory sounds stupid, well it was that kind of game.  In true post-international break tradition, we started out blunt going forward and vulnerable to counters.  But after Jesus drew a silly foul from Ayling […]

Ok, It’s 8 Points, But Are We Favourites?

Hello all. In this podcast we look at the fantastic performance against Palace and try to work out what our realistic chances of winning the big prize. Pedantic George.

Stars Return to Blow Palace Away.

Clinical and precise, Arsenal dismantled Crystal Palace on Sunday to go eight clear at the top. Barring a consolation goal and a couple of Zaha-generated scares, the win was wrapped up after an hour to quell talk of a post-Europe slump.   The Europa League should never have been an afterthought, and would have been great […]

Fun at Fulham.

Hello all, in this podcast Shotta tries to calm me down as I wax lyrical about the performance, team and Arteta. If you missed the excellent review from Birdkamp yesterday, I suggest you go back and give it a read. Pedantic George

Arsenal Take a Riverside Stroll.

If other teams can work out whatever it is that allows us to have easy passing options at all times, then football will enter a new era.  Because when we’re flying we make football look so simple that it goes beyond personnel. You think there must be a recipe. Surely other teams are dying for […]

The Agony Then The Ecstasy.

Hello one and all. On this podcast we look back on Saturday’s miracle and revel in it. There’s a little bit of analysis of the game, but mainly just to old fellas being happy. Pedantic George.

The Emirates Goes Nuclear!

Deep in time added to stoppage time, Reiss Nelson gave us one of the great moments of the Emirates era, chesting it down and thwacking it home to seal a dazzling comeback win from two down.  Nelson’s goal sparked mass delirium, with the bench emptying onto the pitch, our captain collapsing to the turf, an […]
