It's Time For Alexis & Özil To Do Their Thing

Match Preview: Bournemouth vs. Arsenal – Premier League 07.02.2016

This would be comedic if it weren't so tragic. Maybe it's just ironic. Just as we've finally started to reassemble a full-strength squad, surviving—or so it seemed—an injury-crisis to dwarf all injury-crises, we've stumbled to four consecutive depressing results. A last-second equaliser at Anfield. A stubborn foe at the Britannia. Another red-card assisted win for Chelsea. A blinder turned in by Southampton's keeper. Add them all together, and we've now dropped nine points from our last four outings. If we can't get back to winning ways, well, we can write off any chance of winning the Prem.

Bottling Arsenal Make It Hard To Believe In Them

Match Review: Arsenal 0 Southampton 0 - Premier League 02.02.2016

Sometimes it is a very stressful and painful thing to be an Arsenal fan.

Filling the cavernous space were so many identical pine desks and lumbar support office chairs. It was as if Ikea had made a nest. The walls were a shade of beige which trapped sunlight and smothered it in boredom.

Make no mistake, this was the place that dreams go to die.

Ox Breaks Poor Run With MOTM Performance

Match Review: Arsenal 2 Burnley 1 - FA Cup 30.01.2016

Progress though we did, Arsenal more stumbled into the FA Cup fifth round than anything else. A much changed team edged past tricky Burnley side that gave us a scare in the Premier League last season. The Championship side, looking to bounce straight back to the Premier League after relegation last year, provided a stern test. Still, a win is a win and right now it’s a welcome one coming off an inauspicious start to the year and while the title challenge is stuttering slightly, the defence of the Cup is still on track.
