Sommer this summer for Arsenal? Nope

Morning all and welcome to another day and another load of transfer balderdash, with the news that we're supposedly interested in Yann Sommer from Borussia Monchengladbach, which would be one of the oddest moves I could imagine. I mean I get that Cech is being linked away from the club. We've signed a £22million 'keeper [...]

Arsenal’s Gomes buffer for Ramsey, plus Jeff nears the end?

Morning folks and I hope you are waking up to a good one. It's another sunny day for us Brits in a summer in which we have a lot to be thankful for, not least the fact that we've also got a squad heading out to Singapore that look happy, energised, with plenty of depth. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Arsenal wrapping up transfer business before tours is nectar

Morning folks! How y'all doing? It's good times for me, on account of this unusually warm weather we've got in the UK, which is what us Brits have always said we'd find absolutely acceptable in the summer given we have to go through drizzle, grey and grim sh*t for most of the year. The sun [...]

What a footballing summer so far

By | 2018-07-05T07:52:11+00:00 July 5th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, Internationals, pre season|0 Comments

Today feels like the first proper 'lully' day from a football perspective this summer. Before the World Cup there was build up but also we had the change in Arsenal manager, the swift arrivals of players and the feeling that this summer we actually have a 'plan' to the signings that are being made, followed [...]

Sokratis arrives, Japan depart, but what about Monreal?

Morning all and welcome to Tuesday, which is unsurprisingly being billed as "a nation expects" this evening in England with my birth country playing against David Ospina's lads of Colombia. The fact I'm opening with the World Cup and not the fact we finally, formally, announced the arrival of Sokratis from Dortmund for around £15million [...]
