Before I talk about the inevitable news re: Torreira and his potential signing, how about a word for The Argies, eh? I mean, we thought it was England who had the monopoly on bottling it big time at the World Cup, but those Messi-led misfits completely sh*t the bed last night and now are only [...]

It all feels very efficient at Arsenal at the moment, doesn't it? I mean, it's almost as if we've known our weaknesses, known where we are in the pecking order, known who will improve us, so now we're going out and getting them. It's refreshing. The plan appears clear and yesterday whilst we were unable [...]

Jack to go, hello Leno

Arsenal are certainly moving faster than any other summer we've seen in some time aren't they? Yesterday the club confirmed the arrival of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen in a deal which sounds like it's not of €20million. It's a deal that I've already mentioned I'm not sure of and I've already wondered whether or [...]

Arsenal are shopping at a level down, but there is a plan, at least

Sometimes it's comforting to know that things don't always change. I'll be honest with you; after Germany lost to Mexico in their opening group game at the weekend for the first time in like a billion years, then England had a first half in which they played brilliantly by-and-large, I thought we must have been [...]

Özil in a familiar situation

Yesterday felt like the first proper 'World Cup' day for me, as I managed to catch at least two and a half of the three games on TV, in between a Father's Day BBQ in classic British overcast weather. What we were treated to was certainly a bit of surprise and with Germany going 'Full [...]

Arsenal doing contracts right, VAR doing Football wrong

The World Cup is now we'll and truly underway and despite the fact I've only really watched bits and pieces so far - because of a busy weekend for me in the real world - there's already been plenty to talk about and that's certainly a good thing. On Friday night I watched the second [...]

In this past week I've talked about the importance of momentum, about how when we've even been anywhere near the top of the league at any stage, it's been because we've had a good start to the season and that has carried through until at least the midway point. Yesterday I talked about it being [...]

Big day for Unai; Calum to Fulham?

Today is quite a big day in Unai Emery's Arsenal career, if you think about it, because in just over an hours time from me penning today's thoughts the Premier League fixtures will be out and we'll know whether he has been granted an opportunity to play a series of 'winnable' games or whether he's [...]
