Arsenal 5-1 Everton: No miracle, but a good day

Joseph Zucker Arsenal FC

Match report – Arteta reaction – Video The match part of today’s blog is going to be relatively short, because I haven’t seen anything back, no replays, nothing, but obviously it was a comfortable win over an Everton side who basically turned up because they were contractually obliged to do …

Saturday waffle: Hello from London

Joseph Zucker Arsenal FC

Good morning from London. As you can see, I have a hotel room with gorgeous ‘city view’. I got in yesterday afternoon, my first bit of travel since the pandemic and I have to say it was a bit weird but all very familiar. There have been horror stories about …

Friday thoughts: Defenders, Vieira, and London Calling

Joseph Zucker Arsenal FC

Morning all, some quick Friday thoughts as I’m packing my bags for London. There is a Mikel Arteta press conference later today as we prepare for Sunday’s game. I’m interested to know who might play at centre-half given that Takehiro Tomiyasu, Ben White and Gabriel all had issues of varying …

Looking forward … at forwards

Joseph Zucker Arsenal FC

Morning. Like many of you I’m sure, I’m still trying to process the last couple of games, through a fog of disappointment and frustration. It was good to talk it out with James on the Arsecast Extra yesterday. Going back to last Thursday, it seems clear we were tempted by …

Joseph Zucker Arsenal FC

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. In this episode we look back on the 2-0 defeat to Newcastle at St James’ Park, a loss made all the more painful because it more or less ends our chances of Champions League football next …

Newcastle preview: Concentration and motivation

Joseph Zucker Arsenal FC

It’s Newcastle tonight, and nothing that happened yesterday will have any bearing on what we need to do. Speaking the press over the weekend, Mikel Arteta was asked about the fitness of Ben White and Gabriel, both of whom are doubts due to hamstring problems. At that point he was …
