Irrational Arsenal fan jealously, Coman and the youth team cash cow

I'll level with you: I'm a little bit jealous of Liverpool and how in the last couple of seasons they've actually got their sh*t together. When Klopp arrived there was a period of adjustment and when he didn't conquer all in his first full season at the club I was more than happy enough to [...]

Gazidis gets a shoulder shrug and for Arsène it’s too soon for me

Morning party people. How's it hanging? I don't know whether today will be a relatively short blog because if I'm completely honest, I'm struggling to get too bent out of shape over rumours that Ivan Gazidis could potentially be on his way to AC Milan. You'd have got long odds on that happening, on a [...]

“Is Watford coming out for a kickabout?” And Emery’s pressing needs

By | 2018-07-17T08:21:06+00:00 July 17th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, friendly, pre season, Tactics, Unai Emery|0 Comments

With this weird period of time in the middle of pre season that we find ourselves in, it feels very strange to not be looking at a friendly or something going on at The Arsenal this weekend. It's a bit of a 'lull within a lull' for us. There aren't any games played until the [...]

Will Atletico game show Emery’s formation hand?

Morning all and welcome to another pre season weekday, with the main story on everyone's lips being the French victory against Croatia yesterday in which Olivier Giroud got his hands on the World Cup, and as a collective it seems most Arsenal fans couldn't be happier for him. He's had one heck of a journey [...]

Early positive Arsenal signs at Borehamwood

Morning all! A bright one in London, which is becoming an awesome habit that Mother Nature is getting in to. I could certainly get used to a life like this if it happened every year. I could handle the rain, the grey, the cold and sleet, if it meant we get a few months of [...]

Emery’s timely reminder of our real love: The Arsenal

I loved the fact we got an Arsenal press conference yesterday. The day after the England game, English/Arsenal fans licking their wounds, then BAM! We get his with the reminder that for 99% of our lives we don't even watch international football. It was the timely reminder of where the true love and loyalties reside [...]

England out, but Arsenal keep on signing

So for England the dream of a World Cup final dies and much like most of my life it happens wondering why the national team have always fallen short. Perhaps it's in the collective national psyche, because for a nation with the money, the domestic league, plus the talent in some positions, one World Cup [...]

Deals done early show an Arsenal with a plan

Another day, another new signing in the bag for Arsenal and it's one that whilst we've waited a while to get over the line, it's been done and confirmed and I cannot be happier. This is the type of profile of player that we needed at the club. Lucas Torreira may be small but he [...]

Arsenal’s squad turnover: The New Batch

I've gotta be honest with you; felt a little bit weird seeing Jack Wilshere in a West Ham shirt yesterday. I don't know why because there have clearly been pictures of him as a little boy in a West Ham shirt, due to his family supporting the club, but it still felt odd and I [...]
