Late Tobin Heath goal rescues point for Arsenal against Manchester City

Photo by Naomi Baker/ Arsenal were on the verge of a second straight WSL defeat until Tobin Heath rescued a point. Tobin Heath’s 92nd minute equalizer ended Arsenal’s run of three straight defeats in all competitions. The Gunners were on the verge of losing their second straight game in the WSL before Heath’s goal, which leaves Arsenal top of the WSL, two points ahead of Manchester United in second, with a game in hand, and four points ahead of Chelsea, who have a game in hand on Arsenal.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Women: match preview, how to watch

Photo by Julian Finney/ Arsenal face a stern evaluation of their title credentials. Arsenal Women travel to Manchester on Sunday, looking to stop an extremely poor run of form. Arsenal have only won one game since November, a run that has seen them go out of the Conti Cup, scrape through in the Champions League, and lose some ground in the WSL, although Arsenal remain top. Perhaps more concerning, in their last six games, Arsenal have scored five goals, with four coming in one game, against Leicester City. It doesn’t get any easier this weekend, as Arsenal face a...

Birmingham City 2-0 Arsenal Women: We have a problem

Birmingham City 2-0 Arsenal Women: We have a problem

Photo by Catherine Ivill/ Arsenal Women continued their poor run of form, falling to bottom side Birmingham. When does a blip become an actual trend? Arsenal Women are finding out, with the Gunners suffering their fourth defeat in their last five games. Although it is only Arsenal’s first loss in the WSL this season, and although Arsenal still have a 4 point lead over Chelsea—albeit with Chelsea having a game in hand—it’s hard not to feel that this particular defeat is terminal for Arsenal’s league hopes. Birmingham City did not win a league game in the...

A definitive ranking of Arsenal’s retro adidas commercials

A definitive ranking of Arsenal’s retro adidas commercials

Photo by Stuart MacFarlane/Arsenal FC via There have been three winter releases. But which ad is the best? Ever since adidas returned to producing all of Arsenal’s drip, the Christmas-time December release has been one to look forward to, as adidas produced not only retro clothing, but did so alongside a bespoke video release. This, of course, is different to the kit release every season, in part because the challenge of December releases is connecting the past to the present. Every year, adidas rises to the challenge. But, some years are better than others, and so...
