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

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 [...]

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 [...]

Jack’s Holding on to Rob, Shokran’s holding out for a transfer

By |August 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

I don't know about you, but this week - footballistically speaking - certainly feels like it's dragging on, as we're still only at Wednesday and I'm still a little raw from the opening day defeat.  I'm trying to remember if it's always been like this at the beginning of the season. I think it might [...]

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, [...]

No identity, no points, very Arsenal

So. Right. Erm, where does one start after yet another opening day defeat? I genuinely have no idea. Gotta start somewhere though, right?  Perhaps this blog today will be as disjointed as the team felt yesterday in a pretty abject performance. Well, when you concede four at home you have to say it's abject, don't [...]

Mustafi shuffling his way closer to Arsenal, but ‘internal solutions’ are now Arsène’s immediate priority

By |August 12th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

It's 7am on Friday as I write this, with at least 2 hours until Arsène's first presser of the season and where normally there would be anticipation and excitement on our chances this season, there is mainly only worry that what usually happens to Arsenal - injuries - has come at least two months earlier [...]

DEFCON2 yet for you? 

By |August 10th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, Rant|1 Comment

So it's another day and another new signing to not get too excited about. We're at T-minus four days until our season starts and it's the third day since we saw Gabriel's injury. And there's only been a sniff of 'Arsenal are thinking-about-asking-about-maybe-there-might-be-an-outside-chance-of-bidding-for' a defender who other teams even seem to be pulling out of [...]

Hurry up Arsenal, I’m bored of this preamble

It's funny how everybody seems to lose their sh*t when a big transfer happens to a rival, especially when we've seemingly been innocently looking to the sky and whistling so as to not attract much attention to ourselves, isn't it? And when I say 'funny', what I actually mean is 'maddeningly hysterical, because that's how [...]

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. [...]
