Scudamore’s Scrooge McDuck impression and pathetic Brexit football quotas

It's understandably quiet at the moment as we head into another one of these international breaks. Honestly, these things are quite vexing, I must say. If we can look at anything positive from it, it's that our momentum had been stuttering of late, but I'd really rather be playing Bournemouth away this Sunday than having [...]

Nelson – the first proper Arsenal LANS?

I'm sorry but anybody who can get remotely 'up for' this selection of international football boredom festivals that are arranged for this weekend probably needs an enima from Dr Seward from Dracula Dead and Loving it. For me the only purpose these intermissions of proper football provide is when we're on a poor run of [...]

Arsenal Almiron the case for some new blood

Morning all and welcome to another weekend. And it's one of many this season in which our Saturday's are sadly not taken up by The Arsenal. It's not fun really and doesn't feel right but I guess it is what it is. For the positive yin of having plenty to talk about yesterday following victory [...]

Time to phase out Ramsey from Arsenal

I like Aaron Ramsey. I like his energy, the spaces he occupies, the goals he has scored and I think a fully fit Ramsey is a massive asset to the team. So whilst my title is provocative in a sense, it is 100% how I feel and is not indicative of me being a 'Ramsey [...]

Nelson and Lacazette out the door?

With all of the hoo-ha of the start of the Premier League I think most of us had forgotten the fact English clubs can't become embroiled in an end of August transfer scrap on Friday. It's been refreshing to know that there won't be any destabilising of players as the season starts. Well, that is [...]

Arsenal Deadwood sequel to pave way for Ramsey signing?

Happy Thursday y'all! It's technically still summer in the UK but given the drizzle that has engulfed my particular corner of the world, you'd never have guessed it, because it's looking pretty grim. As grim as Carl Jenkinson's hopes of getting out of Football limbo, where he currently resides, too expensive salary-wise to leave Arsenal [...]

Ivan’s at ChampMan again; Elneny offski?

I wonder if Ivan, Raoul and Sven have been playing Football Manager over the summer, because that's the only fathomable explanation why they've decided to issue a 'not-quite-official' declaration that Unai Emery's job is safe. There were a few reputable places online reporting it yesterday and when I read it whilst on my way to [...]

Ramsey new deal defines success of our midfield season

It's transfer deadline day today - a lot earlier than it's ever been - and despite some of the murmurings of a Dembele here, or centre half there, I think Arsenal's revolving door at Colney will be more busy by the 'exit' part than the 'entry'. We've got too many players. Jenkinson, Brammall, Perez, Welbeck, [...]

Deadline day looms as defensive questions are asked

Well it's all been pretty much confirmed and after yesterday's Kroenke news I've obviously had my say in yesterday's blog. This morning I wake up resigned to the fact we are powerless to do anything. There are talks of protests, or not turning up to the first game, leaving the seats empty and showing Kroenke [...]

Chambers, Ramsey, Holding and fearing City – wobbly with a week to go

We're less than a week before the big kick off to the Premier League so perhaps inevitably, what with the transfer window shutting on Friday too, Arsenal are suddenly looking less than perfect when it comes to preparation with the new season. I'm talking of the Ramsey situation of course, but also of the Calum [...]
