Some good, some less so, performances at the Emirates Cup

I don't know about you, but it's always enjoyable to see Arsenal 'do the goals' and so when you watch a tanking like we did yesterday in day one of the Emirates Cup, it's all a bit of good fun, even if it is a little meaningless. It as a pretty grim day weather-wise and [...]

Catalyst for change not kicked in yet at Arsenal

Morning Gooners, happy match day to you, even if it is only a 'fitness developing' exercise today when we play Benfica on home soil. I think I will watch the games this afternoon, because I suspect we'll get a better indication on how much work is needed for this team after today's workout. The usual [...]

Power plays from Özil and Giroud

At 11am this morning UK time I believe Arsenal will be kicking off their pre season campaign with a game against Syndney FC and ahead of that match the club launched the new third kit, which will hardly be seen by anyone throughout the season, but more importantly it was sported by key players and [...]

Laca glimpse means little right now, as Ox and Alexis news rumbles on

They're in Australia, they're posing for pictures and soon they'll be running out on to the turf for the first game of the summer, which means that yep, pre season is well and truly underway. Which means the new season is officially on countdown. Lacazette has been pictured training and Arsène has confirmed that he [...]

An Arsenal Ornbomb lands early

Just as the well begins to dry up, with little Arsenal speculation that hasn't been said before, along comes a well known and respected traveller with a hose to replenish the cracked walls of the metaphorical transfer water containment facility. Yesterday evening we had a couple of Ornbomb's thrown into the Twittersphere and naturally it [...]

Don’t always believe ‘Sky sources’ – even with Lacazette

Another off season Saturday rolls into town and another rumour takes centre stage with Arsenal and after a week in which people have started to get excited about Mbappe, somebody has decided that this weekend is Lacazette speculation weekend, with multiple sources including the famous 'Sky sources' having their say that a €50million (£44million) deal [...]

Can Arsenal still finish in the top four and win the FA Cup?

In short, I don’t believe so, not both anyway. Given the way this season has gone it would be highly unlikely and yet, the fact that it is still even conceivable that it could happen is really quite amazing if you think about it. At times this season Arsenal have looked rudderless. We’ve lurched from [...]

A confidence boost from United gratefully received

Yesterday's win against United felt good, didn't it? It had a performance that had us remembering that this collective of players are in fact capable of pulling off performances that can add a touch of sparkle to the weekend's proceedings. Forget about the fact Mourinho had talked up his own teams failings, forget about his [...]

The horrible permutations of today’s game; the expectation of tomorrow’s

Happy Saturday Gooners. It's FA Cup weekend but as seems to be par for the course these days, we don't play until Sunday. I suppose we'd better get used to it because next season unless something drastic happens in the Premier League, we'll be seeing a lot less Saturday football and a lot more Sunday [...]

Arsene can end the speculation in a second

Core blimey, me 'n the Management had one of those "well that escalated quickly" evening, with the help of rum, gin, tonic, vodka and cranberry and Pinot Grigio Blush, last night. Not all together at the same time obviously, but by the taste in my mouth it kind of felt like it. Means I'm somewhat [...]
