Arsenal fixtures to counter N’Zonzi/transfer Arsenal guff

I'm so glad that this December is chocked full of football matches, specifically Arsenal matches, of course. All thanks to the Europa League and continuing League Cup status of the club. The reason I'm pretty chuffed is that it somewhat (sadly not completely) drowns out some of the unsavoury noises of transfer tittle-tattle that we're [...]

Forest away points, rotation balance for BATE and Sven’s bedding in

I've never been to Nottingham. It's not like I've had a reason to, if I'm honest though, but all that has changed now that Arsenal have drawn Forest in the third round of the FA Cup. An away trip in January beckons and given that it's one of the few games in which I can [...]

Rebuild, reboot, sweep clean – get the contract rebels out of Arsenal

At this point in time can anybody say with any level of certainty what on Earth is going to happen to our two ‘big name’ stars come January? Can anybody enlighten me?  Because Arsène certainly can’t and I’m not sure he has any idea any more. His latest interview from beIN - and if you [...]

Injuries kicking in -Full Arsenal style

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

By | 2017-09-27T07:26:15+00:00 September 27th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, History, premier league|0 Comments

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 [...]

Adams has 2 years minimum to wait; transfer window success

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 [...]
