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 [...]

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 [...]

Alrighty folks? How goeth it? Mighty fine? Or 'meh'? The lack of Arsenal news is a little 'meh'. Well, concrete Arsenal news that is. The main rumour rumblings appear to be Torreira from Sampdoria but in an effort to be seen as the leading light of insight on this deal, you've got outlets like Di [...]

Yesterday my blog featured a few words and a picture of Joel Campbell, speculating that it's a clean slate for many and that players like Joel might think they have a chance with the new man at the helm, but having watched him in bits and pieces of yesterday's Costa Rica game against England I [...]
