Howdy peeps, hope Wednesday is treating you well thus far, and you haven't exploded in anticipation for the showpiece trophy of the year this weekend? Yep, it's the Emirates Cup that awaits us on Saturday and Sunday and Arsène is certainly one that falls in to the 'excited anticipation' camp, if you believe what he [...]

The curious (and sad) case of Lucas Perez

It's the curious case of Lucas Perez that I want to talk about today, because it's an unusual one from an Arsenal perspective, particularly when it comes to Wenger. What's jogged me into focusing on our wantaway Spaniard is the supposed comments he's made to the club about being unhappy and wanting to go back [...]

Arsène stands firm; Thierry relived

It should be a relatively quiet one today, because I'm imagining that the team will be enroute back to the UK to prepare for domestic friendlies before the season opener in the glorified friendly against the chavs.  I can't see this blog last too long today either, because quite frankly I'm almost all out of [...]

Poor fitness session for Arsenal, as more Alexis rumours are dismissed

Friendlies, eh? If you win em, you get "it means nothing, just a fitness session", but lose and it's "we've got no chance next season" until the next time the team play. So after a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Chelski, it's the latter that some people are saying on this Sunday and with [...]

PSG? Sure! Shut up and take my Alexis.

It's funny how rumour and speculation can send some football fans mad with anger. Every summer there is a transfer rumour either in or out that clearly isn't on the cards, yet people go bonkers over it for a period of time, then a week later have forgotten all about it. That's kind of how [...]

Style change in Arsenal attack probably means a Giroud exit

It's the Friday calm before the 'storm' ahead of another pre season tour game tomorrow against that horrible lot from West London tomorrow. Like we didn't see enough of them last season. Now we have to deal with them in the summer too. And their fans will be extra buoyed by the Morata signing, which [...]

Iwobi resurgence might soften Alexis blow

Wellety, wellety, wellety. Arsenal won a football match against Bayern Munich. Never thought we'd see the day, eh?  Of course we'll ignore the fact that Bayern looked at times like they couldn't be arsed. Plus we'll discount that the victory came from penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time. Plus we'll not pay much [...]

Alexis plan B for PSG, Arsène becoming reactive

Another day, another comment on Alexis, from both media and Arsène and now it's starting to get really tedious isn't it? First up we had news that PSG were interested in the Chilean. It comes to something that as an option I felt glad when reading those stories coming out of the French press. A [...]

Low selling fees is Arsenal’s modus opperandi

There are outgoing vibrations in the transfer waters a-happening, fellow Gooners, as the wheels of human footballer trafficking begin in earnest it seems. Yesterday we heard about Debuchy's on-off deal with Nice, eventually off because Lyon are letting their right back leave for the French club, followed by noises of a Calum Chambers departure for [...]

You can always replace – more Alexis thoughts

No sooner had the boots been polished following the Australia tour, than the team are off to China and training in the blistering summer heat of Shanghai, as the team take part in some sort of trophy involving all of the types of teams that none of us want to see Arsenal play, So it's [...]
