Well, our injury news isn’t looking too favorable at the moment. The club is awaiting scans on Thomas P’s thigh, it’s rare that those scans come back and the result is: Walk it off you drama qweeeeeeeeeeeen!

Kieran Tierney needs surgery.

Tomiyasu is still nursing his attention seeking calf muscles. I honestly can’t believe how long he’s been out. It’s basically half a season he’ll have missed by the time this all sorts itself out. He is apparently due back after Southampton, but can you see Arteta throwing him into Chelsea away, then United at home? I can’t.

PERSPECTIVE FC!

by .

Good morning my dears, it’s time to dust yourselves down and start getting on board the PERSPECTIVE FC bus.

We lost one game.

Our away record prior to Palace as FIVE wins in a row. That is amazing. Liveprool just broke their own away win streak record recording 8.

PERSPECTIVE FC!

Sky Sports asked are a really important question: Are things going wrong for Arsenal?

Our form over the past 6 games is better than Chelsea, City, and Liverpool.

United has won 1 of their last 6.

Arsenal has won 10 of 13.

PERSPECTIVE FC!

Let’s talk about the Premier League table.

You see that? We’re joint 4th with a game in hand over Spurs.

We have the chance to go actual 4th.

Is it tight?

Yes.

Is the race for 3rd tight?

Yes.

Is the race for the league tight?

Yes.

If you don’t want to be in tight races, then go and support another league. This is the Premier League, the most competitive in the world, if you’ve convinced yourself the team that lost the first three games of the season, that is also the youngest, with the slimmest squad… was going to cake walk top 4… then you my friends need to chant loudly.

PERSPECTIVE FC!

That is all for today.

LISTEN TO THE PERSPECTIVE FC PODCAST.


SHOCKER OF A PERFORMANCE THAT REQUIRES SOME BOUNCEBACKABILITY

by .

Ok, let’s be blunt, that was terrible stuff from Arsenal.

The players didn’t show up. It is unlike them at this stage to not show up. We can’t blame maturity because they’ve been mature enough to be in pole position for top 4 with 10 games to go. We can’t blame skill level, because we know that the team is top 4 level when it comes to talent. We can’t blame desire, because I think it’s fair to say we had better chances than we did in the Villa game.

PALACE PREVIEW

by .

Some Arsenal squad news has been leaked by an academy prospects DAD. Marcelo Flores, our young Mexican/Canadian attacking midfielder, is apparently in the squad and we know because his old man dropped a ‘I’M PROUD’ tweet he probably didn’t expect to go viral.

This is an interesting move. Arteta has been rotating a group of youngsters on the bench over the last month. He hasn’t used them. But it’s all good experience at this stage and it keeps those players motivated to keep on pushing in training.

Flores has quite a lot of press around him. He recently made his debut for the Mexican national team, coming on as a left-sided winger. He wants to make his full debut for Arsenal and Mexico by the age of 19. He said this:

THE JOB IS CLEAR

by .

Arsenal head into the Palace game under pressure.

Is that a new thing?

No.

This is how it goes if you want to move back to the elite of European football.

Wolves was pressure, Villa was pressure, Leicester was pressure. Every game until the end of the season has a pressure tag attached or a narrative.

Palace is Patrick Vieira and the City draw he pulled off.

Here the thing, this side doesn’t seem to have too much banter about it. They have had their moments, but generally, we’ve been focused, turned up with energy, and done the job.

Have other teams?

No.

United blew their lines, again.

ARTETA OUT

Lololol… April fools, innit?

No good banter from me today. I have landed in New York City, met with Matt, now I am in pain, but the good sort.

Mikel Arteta was in a VERY talkative mood in the press conference.

Let’s just get it out of the way:

How he talks about Flo Balogun:

NEW KITS?

by .

Before I jump into this post. Thank you. The DMs, the beautiful comments that made me tear up, and the e-mails. The Arsenal community is outrageously kind.

Right, let’s crack into football news.

Dani Alves has described Gabi as “my phenomenon.” Damn. That hits in all the right places. One of the greatest players of all time propping up our forward like that truly is praise from the highest of places.

It’ll be an interesting year for him. He’s showing a lot promise. He needs to convert that into goals and assists. But I am pretty certain he will do EXACTLY that. Isn’t it great having another sensational young player making waves on the international scene
