The easiest way to make a profit out of Arsenal’s fixtures next season

By Tony Attwood

There is no doubt that a lot of readers who are critical both of Arsenal and of my approach to Arsenal, argue that it is dead simple to predict Arsenal’s results because the manager is a turnip who insists on playing players such as Mustafi, Lichsteiner, Jenkinson, Kolasinac, Elneny, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Xhaka and Iwobi.

And it has struck me that since we know well in advance pretty much who is going to be in the team (because as the critics also say, he simply doesn’t spring surprises and tends to use the same players over and over again) it really ought to be possible to make pretty neat predictions match after match.

Now, if you add to this the Untold prediction programme that we have been running all season, through which particular emphasis is given to the home or away record of Arsenal, and that of the other team, you really should be onto a winner.

Going back through our predictions of this season it is clear that just using the home and away record of last season (for the first half dozen games) and then the home and away record of this season, it is perfectly possible to predict results.

As you may recall Untold runs the home and away analysis before each match – but if you can’t wait for that, you can always take a look at the authorative site 11v11 which has a section of its own devoted to Arsenal which can be modified to show just home or just away games.

And then if you wish you could go further by this chart to show what happens to bets made in particular ways.   That was provided to us by Betway.   You can also find out what is happening across all of football.

Finally if you want to see how far Arsenal has progressed in the last season, what you can also do is have a good look at the position of Arsenal in the season just finished against that of previous seasons, which were, of course, under Mr Wenger.    The full details of this are in the article How did Emery compare with Wenger? A comparison of seasons

Now that page contained a chart that you maybe missed amidst all the data that was included, so I want to run it out one more time.  It concerns the away form of the club.   Here are the details…

Season Pos P W D L F A GD Pts
2014/15 3rd 19 10 4 5 30 22 8 34
2015/16 3rd 19 8 7 4 34 25 9 31
2016/17 6th 19 9 3 7 38 28 10 30
2017/18 11th 19 4 4 11 20 31 -11 16
2018/19 8th 19 7 4 8 31 35 -4 25

Now my estimation, based on all the away games that we have looked at, is that it is going to be very clear very quickly whether we are breaking the away game curse in the new season or not.   If we are not that is going to give good indication of what is going to happen in the next season in terms of Arsenal’s away form.

Home form incidentally is much easier to forecast so I am not bothering you with that, but it is the away form that people often ignore.

There is only one other final point to consider here – last season Emery looked as if he had totally broken to voodoo charm on our away games by the run he had earlier in the season…

02 Sep 2018 Cardiff City v Arsenal W 2-3 Premier League
15 Sep 2018 Newcastle United v Arsenal W 1-2 Premier League
04 Oct 2018 FK Qarabağ Agdam v Arsenal W 0-3 UEFA Europa League
07 Oct 2018 Fulham v Arsenal W 1-5 Premier League
25 Oct 2018 Sporting Clube Portugal v Arsenal W 0-1 UEFA Europa League

But remember that was just five matches, with just three in the league, and two of those were against teams that were ultimately relegated.   For the spell on away games to be broken we need a much bigger turn around that that.

  1. I think the only way we are going to erase our poor away form is by our dealings in the Summer Transfer Window.
    We haven’t got a “sugar daddy” but astute and judicious dealings are still possible.
    We appear to have an extremely professional backroom recruiting staff. Let ’em now earn their corn.

  2. So if I gamble using the links provided I will very easily increase my money?

  3. My advice on gambling – if you cannot lose the money – don’t bet. Always consider money that you want to gamble as lost.

    The only time you have won is if you have spent that money & cannot gamble it again.

  4. Totally agree , a win is only a win when you walk away. Reinvesting is only upping the gamble.
    Many years ago I played football in a team where other members were dog owners that raced at Catford and Walthamstow . When I went , I put £ 5.00 in my pocket ,( shows how old I am ) when it was gone , it was gone and so was I. Sometimes I won but if I left with more than the fiver .It was a good night with a bonus . I would not say that I was successful but my system on betting on the prettiest girl leading the dogs round before the race seemed as good as the ones that studied form.
    I think it was down to how much water they drank before they ran.

  5. @ Menace – But Tony quite clearly states that following his gambling links is an easy way to make money. Can’t be too easy if I should just assume my money is lost if doing it? Surely he wouldn’t lie to encourage people to use his gambling links?

  6. Jezzy – if Tony could make money that easily he would not have to surround this blog with advertisements. He would also have had a box at the ems for Untolders!!!
