Can Arsenal perform on a Saturday afternoon in Stoke?

Arsenal are a top priced 1.91 with Paddy Power to beat Stoke at the Britannia this weekend, and despite the stats being against them I fancy them to bag all three points. The Gunners  have lost three of their last four games at the Britannia and face a side who have secured 10 out of a possible […]

Red Detective’s view: Thoughts on Ramsey, Possession and Counter attacks

In comparison to the majority of midfielders in competitive world football, Aaron Ramsey does most things better nearly all of them. He passes, tackles, shoots, competes. At Arsenal, at the moment, he is not doing them as well as he can – and not as well as Song, Arteta, Rosicky or Benayoun. Crippled by under […]

Arsenal are a top priced even money (2) with Boylesports and Betfred to do the league double over Chelsea this weekend and everything suggests they will do just that. The Gunners have won 12 and lost just two of their last 16 league games at the Emirates (2 draws), and have scored in all those fixtures.

Red Detective’s view: Thoughts on Ryo Miyaichi and Jan Vertonghen

Ryo Miyaichi could bring an X-factor to Arsenal’s attack next season if he is not sent out on loan. Polite, keen, irrepressibly determined and set to sell a vast number of shirts for the brand in Asia, his boyish looks will be a marketing dream. His direct runs taunt defenders whilst his courage on the […]

Bookmakers make Arsenal a top priced 1.29 to beat Wigan at the Emirates, and the stats suggest that they are worthy odds-on shots to do just that.

PICTURE: Gooners’ do the Poznan!

Manchester City received a taste of their ‘own’ medicine after Mikel Arteta’s last-gasp goal against them earlier today. Jubilent Gooners celebrated Arteta’s goal by doing “The Poznan”, a dance which was originally inspired from Polish side Lech Poznan and involves the fans turning to face away from the pitch, linking arms, and bouncing up and […]

Can Arsenal extend City’s away misery to 27 games?

Arsenal could effectively end any hopes that Man City have of lifting the title if they beat them at the Emirates this weekend, and at 2.6 with Boylesports they look decent value to do so. The Gunners had been in terrific form prior to their 2-1 defeat at QPR last time out, and the stats suggest that […]
