Alexis’ underlying threats should force Arsenal’s hand

What with the lack of domestic football, players going across the world and us as fans left to stew on the recent poor form, what we really needed was a star player giving an interview in his homeland laced with cryptic messages. Alexis was interviewed in Chile after their 3-1 win and noises started permeating [...]

No Wembley apathy, but Arsenal apathy?

By |March 29th, 2017|Arsenal FC|0 Comments

I've woken up this morning in some sort of parallel universe where it is acceptable for Alexis to join Chelski in the summer. There's a few members of the gutter press who are running with this back page trash and to think that Arsenal would even entertain the idea of letting him toddle off to [...]

Thierry won’t happen. Yet.

By |March 28th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History|0 Comments

On Sunday I saw the reports about Thierry Henry and the rumoured interest in him to be the next Arsenal manager, with bookies slashing the odds, seemingly overnight. I thought about writing about it yesterday as some sort of footnote, but didn't bother because I thought it would be just one of the gutter press' [...]

Revisiting Arsenal’s greatest Champions League victories

By |March 27th, 2017|Arsenal FC|0 Comments

Still reeling from the recent ignominious Champions League exit against Bayern Munich? Don’t worry: you’re not alone. As the internal postmortem no doubt continues, we’ve tried to take our minds off Arsenal’s lopsided 2-10 aggregate defeat against the reigning Bundesliga champions by delving deep into the archives in the search of better days. Today, join [...]

Non-existent Arsenal succession planning

I've got to be honest with you, I thought we might get some sort of snippet coming out of the French press from Wenger with regards to this new deal that we all know is coming, given that he'll have been commentating on the French national team this weekend. The fact that he hasn't said [...]

A week off from Arsenal just the ticket

By |March 25th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, History, Internationals|2 Comments

Happy Saturday folks. It's a Saturday in which London is bathed in a bit of sun today, so I intend on making the most of it, probably by staying in and watching TV or by going swimming in the indoor pool in Uxbridge. Yep, that's the British way, dontcha know. The Arsenal Way has essentially [...]

Xhaka can be a fulcrum in this team

Happy Friday friends. Hope you are well? Let's talk about Xhaka, shall we? After all, he's been talking to the press in Germany, which has handily been transcribed by the good people over at Arseblog News. The article makes for quite interesting reading actually. I really like Xhaka. He comes across as open and honest, [...]

Contract balderdash from Arsène and Arsenal players

By |March 23rd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, contracts, Rant|0 Comments

Before I go all Arsenal on today's proceedings, I'm sparing a thought for the families of those people who lost their lives or were badly injured on Westminster Bridge yesterday, not least because if that would have happened six months ago, I might have been in the thick of what was going on. Westminster Bridge [...]

Arsenal engage ‘PR transfer war chest’ mode

By |March 22nd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History|0 Comments

Arsène has apparently jetted off to France to 'consider his future', if you believe the noises by the gutter press, from yesterday. Apparently he wants to see if fans will tolerate another two years, so is assessing the gauge of sentiment, I read somewhere. I do love a bit of media revisionism you know. When [...]

Agenda’s, propaganda and Arsenal

We're only two days in to this particular Interlull and whilst I still haven't decided if not having Arsenal play this weekend is a good thing or not - given the way we have been playing - I'm already feeling a bit drained with the Arsenal universe that you and I operate within.  It's all [...]
