Arsenal confuse and delight in equal measure – Vorskla

Well now, that was fun and once again, as The Management often says, The Arsenal did The Goals. Now I don't know about you, but I like that, regardless of the opposition. When I was a wee nipper or a grumpy teenager I used to get frustrated when Arsenal didn't do enough of The Goals, [...]

Big night for rotated players to shine for Arsenal

Hooray for match day I say! After the last few days of it being about Ivan and his departure, after back-to-back away games in between an international break, we finally get back to The Arsenal at home and tonight is the first time I'm back to The Emirates since the opening day defeat to City. [...]

Ivan gone, Arsenal can move on

Welly welly welly. Wellington wellington wellington. Welbz Welbz Welbz. After much speculation and after the initial scoop by Arseblog on Monday evening, we had confirmation from the club that Ivan Gazidis will depart Arsenal for AC Milan from the end of October and despite the statement from Sir Chips that Ivan isn't leaving only a [...]

Gazidis: the Samir Nasri CEO

Back in Blighty and back to normality for me after Portugal and New York at the weekend and whilst I was hoping to talk about the Newcastle game, impact of Torreira, Xhaka, etc, etc, it's Gazidis who seems to be dominating the topic of conversation after Arseblog News broke the story that he's set to [...]

Nacho’s deal is pragmatic, Özil’s rest is welcome, but Gazidis isn’t

Morning you wonderful sexy bitches, you. Well, it is for me as I write this now, having flown out to New York for the weekend with my company for a bit of a jolly. So the next couple of days will probably be somewhat disjointed blogs, although I will be waking up at 9am to [...]

Pictures of Arsenal players not dead warm the heart

It helps to settle the nerves on a Thursday morn to check out the official site and see certain players back in training. For too long we've had situations where the international break has been followed by a collective holding of hands, silent prayers said, a hope of no missing limbs from key players. Which [...]

Koscielny return a boost, but it’s Torreira we want to see this weekend

Mother Nature has seen fit to reward my ten days of sunshine in Portugal with typically drab weather this morning. But as I sit here on the Met Line waiting patiently for my People's Chariot to disappear into the grey smog of London, I am at least thankful that my holiday coincided with one of [...]

What Will Emery Change to Ensure Arsenal Make the Top 4?

By | 2018-09-09T11:20:30+00:00 September 9th, 2018|Arsenal Manager, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Unai Emery|0 Comments

Unai Emery knows he doesn’t have a squad capable of beating the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, United and Liverpool to the crown this season, but he’s not in it for the short term. A successful campaign for the gunners this season will be a top 4 finish, just so they have a foundation to [...]

How to solve a problem like Xhaka

Morning all from a cloudy Algarve, in which i'm typing today's blog whilst overlooking the sea and wondering why the sky isn't blue, which is most irritating. And as I sit here and tap away I am thinking about Granit Xhaka and the way in which he polarises opinions amongst our fanbase. After he made [...]

Lacazette the star, but defensively we’re a nervous wreck

Winning football matches away from home you say? Well yes please. Although perhaps we could work on making it a little bit easier for ourselves by actually doing it without brain farting our way in to conceding goals and having to rely on our forwards to do the business each week, eh? From the first [...]
