Gazidis gets a shoulder shrug and for Arsène it’s too soon for me

Morning party people. How's it hanging? I don't know whether today will be a relatively short blog because if I'm completely honest, I'm struggling to get too bent out of shape over rumours that Ivan Gazidis could potentially be on his way to AC Milan. You'd have got long odds on that happening, on a [...]

Deals done early show an Arsenal with a plan

Another day, another new signing in the bag for Arsenal and it's one that whilst we've waited a while to get over the line, it's been done and confirmed and I cannot be happier. This is the type of profile of player that we needed at the club. Lucas Torreira may be small but he [...]

Is it the Arsenal players that are the problem?

Bit of a provocative blog title today, I know, but it's something I've been thinking of for a while since the Emery appointment was announced. We've spent years being led to believe that it's Arsène's laissez-faire attitude to team structure, to specific and detailed instructions, that have been an issue for these players. We knew [...]

Emery will get less ‘lives’ than Arteta

Morning all. It's the day after the day after 'the news' that we're getting a new man was all but confirmed and I think everyone is still coming to terms with the left of field appointment of Emery. I must say I'm surprised by some sections of our fan base who appear to be against [...]

Emery Emirates bound as every Arsenal fan is stunned

Well now. What should we talk about today then? Is there any particular Arsenal-related topics of conversation that we should focus on? You're right, how silly of me, Petr Cech being given the number one jersey, Xhaka bizarrely choosing to up his short number to 34, whilst Hector and Mo Elneny got single figures with [...]

Ivan Gazidis is betting his cajones on this appointment

Happy Friday, the first of the post-Wenger reign, and yesterday some footage emerged from Le Olde Boss from his usual media mouthpiece BeIn sports about who might succeed him and he had his say on Arteta as the likely candidate. I've watched this interview a couple of times now and when you see what he's [...]

A monkey off a back and a thanks to a great man

So it all ends. Arsène's time as Arsenal manager has now finished and thankfully it did so with an away win. A monkey that had firmly attached itself to this team's back has been prized from its metaphorical shoulders with Arsène's final win and the man who we have all known as our manager sails [...]

Say ‘eff you’ to this season with a win, Arsenal

So here we are folks. A historic day. The Arsenal and Arsène Wenger united and together for the very last time. It still hasn't properly sunk in that he won't be around after today but I suspect once we see all the tributes pour in, the media fawning and the Match of the Day crew [...]

The Arsenal purge begins

Flipping heck, I'm sure we were all expecting a bit of change at Arsenal when Arsene Wenger had moved on, but did any of us expect the type of noises that came out yesterday re: some of the coaching staff, to be so swift and decisive? It was like Arsenal's very own version of Night [...]

Lots of ‘lasts’ for Wenger

Happy Friday y'all. A Friday in which we've now had time to digest the nuggets from Arsène's press conference and see him pull out yet more of those gems of quotes that he's done over the years. Of course the journos lapped it up. Talk of saying goodbye to trees, having early press conferences just [...]
