Morning folks. Lots of juicy Arsenal stuff to talk about today, so let's get right down to it, starting from where I left off yesterday which was that Arsène confirmed what Özil's agent said which was that talks were going well. of course we'd hardly expect the manager to say "it's a faaaaaacking shambles actually. We [...]

Team structure over expendable star men like Alexis

I wanted to broach a topic today that I sort of touched upon yesterday, relating to both Özil and Alexis and of course, there inevitable departures in either January or more likely May next year.  I think the first of the contract rebels of the modern era was Flamini. I'm sure others will put me [...]

So much to get through today, that I'm not even sure the trip from Uxbridge to Moorgate will be enough time to see me include everything, such is the case after an interlull.  Unlike a tactically drip-fed Arsène Wenger beIN interview, we don't get dribs and drabs, just the whole shabang. Let's start with dear [...]

Arsenal’s planning has caused inflation issues

I'm not sure if Arsène Wenger's interview with BeIn Sports is one that was taken a while ago and now being released in snippets, but he's had some more things to say about the summer, transfer windows and such like. I think I personally am running out of steam to listen to his spin if [...]

The Arsenal contract mess

I was kind of liking the Arsenal quiet zone that had existed whilst all of the players were away on international duty. It was like an oasis of calm amidst the gnashing of teeth on all sides at the moment. The silence wasn't deafening, it was bliss, and I took advantage to have a nice [...]

Arsenal victims and cause of over-inflation

Hey folks. Having a happy Monday?  Never really got in to that band. Was a bit too young for me I think. Still the irony has never been lost on me and with the weather in Blighty reflecting the mood of most Gooners at the moment, what more can one want than a bit of [...]

Mesut’s PR team earning their crust

Sunday's during an interlude eh, the sweet sound of nothingness, which is just what you need when you're an Arsenal fan right now. except there isn't quite nothingness, there's the old chestnut of 'footballer saying things on international duty' and this time it's the turn of Mesut Ozil, who has had his say on former [...]

Arsenal cry wolf for the final time

Well, that's it then, we've ended the summer known as the 'Catalyst for Change' summer, with that usual of Arsenal things: an underwhelming feeling that comes when you know your club hasn't done all it can to be competitive. Here's the thing: I will go to many home games, I will go to a small [...]

Hello. How are you doing? Hopefully you are holding up ok? Given the circumstances?  After all, three months ago you were told that Arsenal had a 'war chest' of around £200million to spend. You were fed lines by those who are used as PR mouthpieces for the club who you might not blame for the [...]

Arsenal: football’s new joke

There's little over 36 hours from the time of me writing this until the slamming shut of the summer transfer window and yesterday felt like there was more happening on a single day since the 'The Great Arsenal Trolley Dash' of 2011. That was sparked by a failure of epic proportions, but yesterday's movements were [...]
