Rotation or not for this weekend? Big Tone has his say (long ago) and Lucas for Cheese

It's Friday, it's the last press conference of the Premier League season and I for one couldn't be happier, because it means the end to this league campaign of disappointment. It also means we're at the final press conference of the season in which we'll have to hear about Arsène's future, because it'll either be [...]

Club action on Europa, as players prep for it

It sounds to me like everyone at The Arsenal are already preparing for life without the Champions League. Word in the pubs over recent weeks is that the club know they will have to do something if we fail this Sunday to get some sort of miracle set of results and with Ivan talking about [...]

Poor Jacky; will a formation change alter summer plans?

Poor old Jacky Wilshere, eh? If reports are to be believed he's gone and smashed his legs to pieces again, which leaves him absent for the final run in, returning to Arsenal early and probably even more up in the air about his future. Timing wise it's an absolute stinker. He has 12 months left [...]

Arsenal + Alexis = cash, Arsenal + Arsène = rented season tickets

Happy Easter Saturday. I spent my Good Friday playing Monopoly with no beer, rum or wine, so I am certainly ready for a little tipple later. And on Sunday. And most definitely on Monday, the day in which Arsenal are at Middlesbrough, who everyone is saying won't give us any problems on their own patch. [...]

Creative Arsène contract questions

Alright? Happy Good Friday to you, which is probably not quite in keeping with the purpose of Good Friday, but there you go. Last night I sank a bottle and a half of Spanish red, as well as going for a long run this morning, so I'm taking Good Friday as it's intended...penance...or something like [...]

Mesut saying all the right things

I think I said this in a recent blog, or certainly in one of my Twitter 'moments', but it feels like we've been playing catch up on football games an awful lot since Christmas. We've had these games in hand due to the FA Cup, so that has meant we're behind on points as well [...]

Arsene can end the speculation in a second

Core blimey, me 'n the Management had one of those "well that escalated quickly" evening, with the help of rum, gin, tonic, vodka and cranberry and Pinot Grigio Blush, last night. Not all together at the same time obviously, but by the taste in my mouth it kind of felt like it. Means I'm somewhat [...]

Alexis’ underlying threats should force Arsenal’s hand

What with the lack of domestic football, players going across the world and us as fans left to stew on the recent poor form, what we really needed was a star player giving an interview in his homeland laced with cryptic messages. Alexis was interviewed in Chile after their 3-1 win and noises started permeating [...]

Non-existent Arsenal succession planning

I've got to be honest with you, I thought we might get some sort of snippet coming out of the French press from Wenger with regards to this new deal that we all know is coming, given that he'll have been commentating on the French national team this weekend. The fact that he hasn't said [...]
