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 [...]

Giroud’s worth proven In bonkers game

Well that was just flipping bizarre. How do you analyse that game last night? How can you make any kind of assessment that makes any kind of sense of what transpired yesterday evening, then use it to work out whether we're basically in the sh*t this season, or whether we'll be alright? I guess the [...]

Do we have enough at Arsenal? For tonight? The season?

It's match day. I'll be there tonight to see Arsenal as the Friday night curtain raiser against Leicester City and when the whistle goes I'll be roaring on my - and our - team against the Champions of two years ago. Is the squad ready for the whole season? Not in my opinion, because Arsène [...]

Friday games to break opening day hoodoo?

These Friday games, eh? It's like some sort of footballing jet lag with press conferences on a Wednesday, the match on a Friday after a long gruelling week of work and the decisions on whether to drink in the City or closer to The Emirates, all conspiring to make this the most unusual of season [...]

Neither hope nor despair for Arsenal’s new season

Morning folks. Hope you're feeling good today, with just four days remaining until the start of the season, in which I've got to be honest it has absolutely flown by.  I've rather enjoyed my time off. I'm not quite chomping at the bit yet though; probably because I'm unsure what to make of this Arsenal [...]

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 [...]

Catalan sympathy falls on death ears, as Emi goes mainland

Shh...do you hear that? Listen, very quietly.... .... Do you know what that is? That is the sound of sympathy for FC Barcelona's current plight on losing one of their star players at the peak of his powers.  That is the sound of, as Timberland on a Justin Timberlake song once said, "what goes around [...]

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 [...]

Low selling fees is Arsenal’s modus opperandi

There are outgoing vibrations in the transfer waters a-happening, fellow Gooners, as the wheels of human footballer trafficking begin in earnest it seems. Yesterday we heard about Debuchy's on-off deal with Nice, eventually off because Lyon are letting their right back leave for the French club, followed by noises of a Calum Chambers departure for [...]

Cameras on Laca, but we’re watching Nelson

Aaaand we're off for pre season with some actual football to speak of! Yessir, yesterday Arsenal played against Sydney FC and its was a decent line up in both halves, with just a smattering of young players who ended up being some of the more interesting talking points it seems. Of course everyone's going to [...]
