Debuchy, Gnabry and other musings post window closing

By |September 2nd, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, gooners, Gunners, premier league|1 Comment

In Portugal at the moment, so yesterday was spent travelling to a place of sunnier climes than my normal London base. Wrote this yesterday and am only now getting the chance to post today, but I still think a lot of what I said is relevant, hence re-posting now. Catch y'all tomorrow with another round [...]

Arsenal have options now

The signings of Mustafi and Perez were finally over the line yesterday and, as the sun began to set in the UK, both were pictured on the official site wearing the famous red and white of The Arsenal. It's feels good, doesn't it? It gives a buzz to the fans, but if you believe what [...]

Transfer formalities to be done, Chambers/Wilshere loan deals to be negotiated?

By |August 30th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|0 Comments

Welcome to Tuesday, which in my head, is actually a Monday because of the bank holiday. Don't worry, it's definitely Tuesday. I checked. Twice. And it seems as though the end of the transfer window will be greeted with confirmation on the two deals that Arsène pretty much confirmed on Saturday, so I'd expect to [...]

Team balance and dynamic good for Watford win

I can't tell you how much I've been looking forward to writing this blog today. Having spent a large part of the summer in the transfer doldrums, then seeing our start to the season completely disrupted by injuries and the failure to adequately prepare for the season openers, the tone of my writing hasn't been [...]

Oracles speak, groups get grouped and Arsenaldom feels a little brighter

So, as with all Arsenal transfers, sh*t doesn't really get real until yer man David Ornstein gives out a little titbit of information via the medium of Twitter. I think it's something like stage four of a five stage process, to be honest with you, with the final stage just being the medical, confirm terms between [...]

Perez a little underwhelming, but don’t write off, yet

Happy Thursday to you and yours. Yesterday it was so hot during the day, I made the mistake of emailing The Management and telling her that we were going to BBQ in the evening. It was all going so well until I sat down to eat my food, by which time lightning began to flash [...]

Bob McVeteran to sign for Arsenal??(disclaimer – not a real person)

By |August 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league|1 Comment

So it appears as though news is starting to trickle through the airwaves that the so-called 'madness' signing is, in fact, Antoine Griezmann. That would indeed be a fine piece of 'madness', were it to be pulled off by the club, Arsène Wenger too.  But unfortunately, as is the case with Arsenal under Arsène and [...]

Arsenal are like my three-year-old-niece

By |August 23rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, History, premier league, Rant, Transfers|7 Comments

Welcome to Tuesday y'all. We're now officially on a one week countdown before the transfer window has slammed shut and unsurprisingly, there is no news, which isn't at all like the saying. It's not really good at all. Of course we have to reserve judgement until the window has closed, but based on the data [...]

Campbell was never going to make it, but we’ve still got a week of ‘what if’

By |August 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, premier league, Rant, Transfers|5 Comments

It's Monday morning, I'm sat on a Met Line train heading towards London in a three piece suit, and it's muggy and uncomfortable as you like.  I'm tired. I feel bedraggled and already I feel like this day is going south. Feels a bit like Arsenal at the moment, eh? We look a little bedraggled [...]

Arsene’s ready to spend – like we were ready for the season?

Hi y'all, hope you're good, after all it is Friday. That's something to be positive about. Right? We also had Arsene's presser to talk about, which he did a day early, as is the custom these days when the team travel away from home. He spoke of a great many things, some of which I'll [...]
