I call foul on Chambers’ future & Lacazette

By |July 27th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, injuries, pre season|4 Comments

Yesterday's pre-US game presser by Arsène had the expected confirmation that Big Per will be out for 'months', in which the manager also confirmed that more experience would need to be brought in. I'm sure there are those out there that feel like this is a fantastic thing, because it means we might go out [...]

Mahrez/Lacazette – One or the other I think, with the likelihood that Walcott gets a chance up top

By |July 24th, 2016|Arsenal Transfers, Attack, pre season, Transfers|2 Comments

Happy Sunday to you and yours. After a glorious day of sun yesterday, in which I even managed a spot of practice fly fishing in the back garden of the in laws, today is looking decidedly greyer, sadly. Still, that appears to be inverse in comparison to the Arsenal universe, as everyone seems to be [...]

Black marks and green ticks, signings and rumours

By |July 23rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, friendly, Match Review, pre season|0 Comments

So, lots to talk about this Saturday, eh? How about with the fact that Arsenal had their first pre-season friendly of the summer yesterday evening, with a game in France against RC Lens. Unfortunately I was on babysitting duties, so didn't get the chance to watch the game in full, but i've read a match [...]

Crazy times, crazy fees, crazy surprises from Wenger?

These are strange and dangerous times, people, strange and dangerous times. In the wider world outside football there is much conflict, with countries declaring states of emergency, as well as the bigots using 'Brexit' as a means to peddle their own racist views with what seems like impunity. Plus, Sam Allardyce is about to be [...]

Arsène and Arsenal need to stick their necks out

By |July 20th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, pre season, Rant|2 Comments

Blimey, it's hot in London at the moment, which I am absolutely fine with I hasten to add. I have a lot of work colleagues who are real-life Goldilocks' and who have said they aren't fond of this heat, but when you spend three quarters of the year in jackets or carrying an umbrella, you [...]

An Arsenal fans Icardi dilemma

By |July 18th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack|0 Comments

As seems to be the way at the moment, a new day brings about a rehashed story, in relation to Arsenal's comings and goings. Yesterday there were some flickers about Icardi and as much as I think he would be a great signing, I can't really see it happening, if I'm honest. He's the Inter [...]

Higuain, Koscielny and Chambers – everybody be cool

By |July 17th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, contracts, Defence, pre season|2 Comments

I'm not really a massive fan of the use of 'memes', I have to say. I mean, occasionally I've gone on to one of those 'meme generator' things to send someone an email, but I don't really do it on a regular basis. Perhaps it's because it takes me more than thirty seconds to source [...]

Arsenal need to take advantage of Mahrez situation

By |July 16th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, pre season|0 Comments

With N'Golo ~Kante heading to Chelski, I tweeted yesterday that we should go for Mahrez, just to piss Vardy off. But actually, more than that, we should go for Mahrez because he's a good player. He's also supposedly ignoring advances from Leicester on a new deal. So I really hope we are taking a good [...]

Elite pool is small, so we need to accept the next level down in striker search

By |July 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, pre season, Rant|2 Comments

As news filtered through from a few random media outlets in Italy that Juventus had entered the fray in relation to the purchase of a certain Gonzalo Higuain, I found myself talking with Giles about the very real prospect of us leaving it until the last minute, then going out and buying a Loic Remyesque striker.  [...]

Options for Arsène and opportunities for players

Quiet. All so very quiet. So quiet in fact, that the press are even giving up on rumours it seems, because Draxler/Higuain are the only names I saw banded about on NewsNow when I had a check earlier.  So we find ourselves having to look at alternative things to talk about, with my mind wandering [...]
