Oracles speak, groups get grouped and Arsenaldom feels a little brighter

So, as with all Arsenal transfers, sh*t doesn't really get real until yer man David Ornstein gives out a little titbit of information via the medium of Twitter. I think it's something like stage four of a five stage process, to be honest with you, with the final stage just being the medical, confirm terms between [...]

Perez a little underwhelming, but don’t write off, yet

Happy Thursday to you and yours. Yesterday it was so hot during the day, I made the mistake of emailing The Management and telling her that we were going to BBQ in the evening. It was all going so well until I sat down to eat my food, by which time lightning began to flash [...]

Bob McVeteran to sign for Arsenal??(disclaimer – not a real person)

By |August 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league|1 Comment

So it appears as though news is starting to trickle through the airwaves that the so-called 'madness' signing is, in fact, Antoine Griezmann. That would indeed be a fine piece of 'madness', were it to be pulled off by the club, Arsène Wenger too.  But unfortunately, as is the case with Arsenal under Arsène and [...]

Arsenal are like my three-year-old-niece

By |August 23rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, History, premier league, Rant, Transfers|7 Comments

Welcome to Tuesday y'all. We're now officially on a one week countdown before the transfer window has slammed shut and unsurprisingly, there is no news, which isn't at all like the saying. It's not really good at all. Of course we have to reserve judgement until the window has closed, but based on the data [...]

Campbell was never going to make it, but we’ve still got a week of ‘what if’

By |August 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, premier league, Rant, Transfers|5 Comments

It's Monday morning, I'm sat on a Met Line train heading towards London in a three piece suit, and it's muggy and uncomfortable as you like.  I'm tired. I feel bedraggled and already I feel like this day is going south. Feels a bit like Arsenal at the moment, eh? We look a little bedraggled [...]

A reaction is essential for Arsenal, to avoid the sharks circling

By |August 20th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Happy Saturday gooners. It's match day and it's an away trip to Leicester City that the team has in front of them to try to erase the residual embarrassment that was caused from last weekend's home defeat to Liverpool. Sadly, there's no new faces to freshen the team today, so the decision that Arsène has [...]

Kroenke the parasite; Mahrez decision causes more apprehension

By |August 18th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

I decided to say a little something yesterday on Twitter, to chip in, on the whole Stan Kroenke thing. Y'know, the whole 'get out of our club mate' vibe that has been consistent for a few years. I didn't get any abuse, but I did see a few sneers from people online about those being [...]

You’re either a happy or infuriated gooner this morning

Depending on what you choose to read, who you choose to follow and when you choose to do either, you were either very excited, very disappointed, or just very confused yesterday. All of the signs over the weekend seemed to have pointed towards an imminent arrival of Shokran Mustafi by the middle of this week, [...]

Gabriel’s woes leave us short, but I took positives from yesterday too

By |August 8th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, friendly, injuries, Match Review, pre season|0 Comments

Everything seemed to be going so well yesterday, didn't it? Right up until that moment when Gabriel flim-flammed his leg by twisting his ankle and having to be carried off on a stretcher. It's all so very...well...Arsenal, isn't it? Had Monreal got injured, we'd have all have been gutted, but Gibbs could have stepped in. [...]

Wolfsburg’s smokescreen, Walcott’s smokescreen

By |August 4th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, pre season|2 Comments

Julian Draxler is apparently going nowhere, say Wolfsburg, and if you believe that their statement yesterday is anything other than an attempt to maximise a return on a clearly unhappy player, I've got some genuine Caesar salad dressing that was on the table of the last emperor himself, that I could sell you. Wolfsburg know [...]
