Lacazette wants to go to Alton Towers

Arsène's doing his press conference in just over an hour from when I start writing today's Wednesday blog. It's the first time I can remember him having a Wednesday press conference ahead of a Premier League game on the Saturday and I can only conclude one of the following: He wants to get on the [...]

Arsenal losing Ox shows pathetic contract management

Selling Oxlade-Chamberlain to Chelski for £35million if he won't sign a new contract with one year to go makes sense. Selling Oxlade-Chamberlain full stop, does not make sense and if it happens, I personally won't be a happy bunny. He's certainly a player who divides opinion. I don't think I've seen such a 50/50 split [...]

Do we have enough at Arsenal? For tonight? The season?

It's match day. I'll be there tonight to see Arsenal as the Friday night curtain raiser against Leicester City and when the whistle goes I'll be roaring on my - and our - team against the Champions of two years ago. Is the squad ready for the whole season? Not in my opinion, because Arsène [...]

Sell Alexis. Now.

I know Arsène remains steadfast in his public comments about Alexis Sanchez, and that the latest 'injury' to the player has come at a very coincidental time, but am I the only one thinking: Tempt PSG into a large bid. ??? He's not signing a new deal, I'd rather lose him now and reinvest the [...]

Friday games to break opening day hoodoo?

These Friday games, eh? It's like some sort of footballing jet lag with press conferences on a Wednesday, the match on a Friday after a long gruelling week of work and the decisions on whether to drink in the City or closer to The Emirates, all conspiring to make this the most unusual of season [...]

Neither hope nor despair for Arsenal’s new season

Morning folks. Hope you're feeling good today, with just four days remaining until the start of the season, in which I've got to be honest it has absolutely flown by.  I've rather enjoyed my time off. I'm not quite chomping at the bit yet though; probably because I'm unsure what to make of this Arsenal [...]

Resolution from Arsenal on Alexis is admirable but foolhardy

Hey folks, hope you're all alreet? I had a charity casino night last night, so a few Sol's and some Chateuneuf du Pape are conspiring to make me feel very old and very tired ahead of a day in the Big Smoke.  Arsenal-wise, however, there is the freshness of a new season upon us and [...]

Laca learns from Theo, Wenger dials up the spin on contracts

Well that's one shiny and oh so important trophy safely tucked away in the cabinet for another season, as Arsenal conspired to lose to Sevilla but still win the Emirates Cup due to the bizarre system of points scoring based on goals that is in place.  The 2-1 defeat to Sevilla saw us pick up [...]

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 [...]
