Let's be honest, we all knew what happened yesterday, so I'll skip over the introduction where I lay it on a plate in detail. Now it's never easy writing these posts after an Arsenal loss, but when that loss comes against Tottenham, it's harder than ever. 2-1 to the North...
The following are the player ratings and reasoning behind the 2-1 defeat at Spurs earlier today. Brace yourself...it's not going to be pretty. http://gty.im/462907370 David Ospina (6/10) Ospina had a very shaky game, but was solid as a whole. He suffered a niggle to his thigh early on and it showed throughout the...
Don't say I didn't warn you. In a recent article I talked about three of the most dangerous Tottenham players (see: http://wp.me/p3CM1b-2Vf) and unfortunately for Arsenal my predictions came true. Both Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen were at the forefront of their game for Spurs today, but it was...
The North London Derby. One of many football highlights of the season but particularly close to the hearts of all die-hard Arsenal fans. Arsenal hosted the first derby of the season back in September (which ended in a one-all draw) and now it's Tottenham Hotspur's turn to host at...
Team News There was no escaping the news this week that Arsenal fans really didn't want to see. Yes, leading goalscorer Alexis Sanchez will miss this weekends North London derby with a recurring hamstring injury. Although the boss was quick to pick up on some good news, with Danny Welbeck now...
Barring a defeat at Southampton, Arsenal were in fine form throughout the month of January. In 5 games we won four times, progressed to the FA Cup 5th round and even won an away game at one of our top four rivals. Throughout the month the team looks as though...
Mesut Ozil was never simply going to fade away in Arsenal colours. He’s our record signing, and for a reason. We’re not the type of club to give up players easily (see Coquelin for more details, or Diaby for extensive reading.) so we let him have his rough patches...
Once upon a time ... no this isn't a fairytale, this story actually happened AND it has a happy ending! On a glorious Sunday lunchtime at the Emirates Stadium the Gunners tore apart Aston Villa's defence; slowly at first, before building up to an ever-increasing crescendo! Arsenal played out...
Where's Ozil? Probably relaxing knowing he bagged the Man of the Match award as Arsenal thumped Aston Villa on their visit to The Emirates in a 5-0 romp. http://gty.im/462623932 The German ace scored a goal but also assisted one, reinstating his claim to be regular in the side. Rating of 9.48 (WhoScored.com) Originally...
Five goals from five different players and a third clean sheet for David Ospina. It was certainly a game to inspire Arsenal fans everywhere. Oliver Giroud scored in the eighth minute thanks to a fantastic assist from Mesut Özil. At half-time Arsenal held on to their 1-0 advantage. http://gty.im/462625078 Giroud returned...
