Kylian treats us like the ugly cousin

Hey folks, how's it going? Y'all in a good mood? Y'all super psyched at the launch of the new home kit? Well I guess there's nothing else really happening, so I suppose it's all we could ponder over yesterday, wasn't it? Personally it's not really something I'll bother with because football kits are far too [...]

Ox news worries as the clock ticks

Can I tell you what I don't like? I don't like it when players who seemed to have turned a corner at the club are suddenly linked strongly with moves away. I am, of course, talking about Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who has now been linked with three of the top four Premier League clubs this season. [...]

Chambers is a gem we should keep

Don't want to be accused of being classically British and Goldilocks with the UK weather, but blow me, it ain't half hot today folks. My penchant for wearing three piece suits to work is not helping the matter either it has to be said. And yet I will still have a day of air conditioned [...]

Japanese Gooners – what’s happened to Ryo and Takuma?

Happy Sunday and happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. May you be gifted with pieces of paper with writing scrawled on it. And beer. Or wine.  I'm in the sunny West of France with the in-laws, having spent the weekend relaxing, and with the total lack of interesting Arsenal related news I [...]

Where’s Arsenal’s catalyst?

It's Friday, it's approaching the weekend, and it's awfully quiet out there in Arsenal land.  Too quiet. The kind of quiet that starts it all off. The worry. The fear. "What happens if we go the whole summer having only picked up a left back on a free transfer?" Kind of quiet. True, it's still [...]

Ox makes England 7% more interesting

"Well? How many Arsenal players are the England team?" The Management said to me yesterday.  "None at the moment. Full of dirty Spurs players. That's why I'm only half watching this sh*tshow" I said at half time. Of course much like the second half and the late flurry of goals, it got much more interesting, [...]

Costa, Ibrahimovich and Alexis – how much is good news?

Well there's no other place to start this morning's blog, given some of the news which came out yesterday, than this: Should Arsenal just go and sign Ibrahimovich and Costa? Screw general elections, Arsenal need a striker and clearly there are some people so worried about 'the madness' of Mbappe, that they're already trying to [...]

Boycott the Sun; too many deals to be done?

I didn't blog yesterday because it seemed somewhat of a pointless activity given the horrific news of Saturday evening at London Bridge. Football can seem so trivial and far removed from the atrocities that some people can inflict on their fellow man sometimes. The world can be such a dark place when people are willing [...]

Spin merchants Arsenal dig out 2012 rhetoric

In 2014 when Arsène signed his last deal, there was a genuine feeling around some of the fanbase and people that I speak to, that it was probably worth giving it to him. We'd got the trophy monkey off our backs, we'd come out of a period of self imposed austerity and now we could [...]

Morning friends, how are you doing? Been any news for us to speak of lately? anything that could constitute groundbreaking at The Arsenal? Of course im talking about the news filtering out through the usual back channels yesterday that Arsène and Stan had agreed a new deal for the manager and he would ratify it [...]
