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 [...]

The humanistic side to some of Arsenal’s outgoings

I had a friends BBQ to go to yesterday afternoon, so only caught the bit up until Shelvey saw red yesterday for a mindless stamp on Alli, but by the sounds of the game in the end it was a good decision. The last thing I want to see is that scummy lot picking up [...]

Morale booster ahead of the real stuff for Arsenal

Victory in the 'Jose Treble' cup assured yesterday, our second trophy of pre season and a cast iron GUARANTEE that we will win the league, league cup, FA Cup and Europa League, all without dropping any points or conceding any goals. Or not. Before the game we were all clear that you can't read too [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Alexis+ball=turning up to training, obviously

Happy Friday bestowed unto thee. I hope yours is joyful and flavoursome ahead of the weekend. Mine will mostly be spent at home trying to make sense of the incremental weather conditions and watching our Emirates Cup games on Quest, that most random of "if there's nothing else on normal telly" channels that exist.  Hey, [...]

Arsenal Deadwood II

During the era of Denilson, Bendtner, Chamakh and Gervinho, also known as The First Deadwood era, I held no real affinity for any of the players who weren't in the first XI. They were young players who'd shown promise and, thanks to the likes of Nasri and Cesc, the club had panicked and signed them [...]

Arsène stands firm; Thierry relived

It should be a relatively quiet one today, because I'm imagining that the team will be enroute back to the UK to prepare for domestic friendlies before the season opener in the glorified friendly against the chavs.  I can't see this blog last too long today either, because quite frankly I'm almost all out of [...]

Poor fitness session for Arsenal, as more Alexis rumours are dismissed

Friendlies, eh? If you win em, you get "it means nothing, just a fitness session", but lose and it's "we've got no chance next season" until the next time the team play. So after a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Chelski, it's the latter that some people are saying on this Sunday and with [...]

Iwobi resurgence might soften Alexis blow

Wellety, wellety, wellety. Arsenal won a football match against Bayern Munich. Never thought we'd see the day, eh?  Of course we'll ignore the fact that Bayern looked at times like they couldn't be arsed. Plus we'll discount that the victory came from penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time. Plus we'll not pay much [...]
