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 [...]

Team takes shape tonight – with or without Rambo

I think this'll be an interesting game this evening against Chelski. Yes it's a pre season friendly. Yes it means little in the grand scheme of things. And yes the players are still adapting to life under Emery. But this will be a good opportunity for us to see what sort of side is taking [...]

New manager = players saying new things

Because we haven't had a new manager in so many years prior to this summer, we haven't seen the usual "this manager is working us soooo much more harder than the last one" type comments from footballers at Arsenal, so yesterday's comments from Bellerin are welcome but I personally take it with a pinch of [...]

This week must see player movement

Morning folks. It's a muggy old day in England, having been a muggy and rainy day yesterday and so here I sit on the tube, having a look outside on the Metropolitan Line at clouds and circular patches of water on the floor, wondering why the summer has ended so soon in all but the [...]

Ramsey: sign or be sold within a week

It's hotter than hell in the UK today. But you'll nee find me complaining that's for sure. I don't care that I have to squeeze myself into a suit for work because this type of summer feels like it comes along once in a lifetime and so I'm just embracing it. Much like Aaron Ramsey [...]
