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. [...]

Insulting the intelligence of Arsenal fans

Well here we go then folks. We're now in to the transfer 'silly season' and no sooner is the ink beginning to dry on the contract of Arsène's new deal, than we're getting snippets of information to get fans all worked up and excitable that we're 'going big' this year. It was L'Equipe yesterday evening [...]

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 [...]

We’ve got one hand left to play at Arsenal

Well as expected, Chelski scanned their way to another win, Stoke bent over and presented themselves for crayon-munching Kane to provide them with a metaphorical meat pounding and to complete the faecal matter infused flavour of the weekend, United completely skanked a Southampton team that were the better team throughout. Tonight we can complete the [...]

Arsenal finances are all financy, Arsene’s coy on England, but not on Theo

Happy Saturday to you my friend. It's an Arsenal free Saturday for us, which means you're probably doing all manner of interesting things. Me? I'm cleaning my house, taking things to the dump and finally going to the next town over to work out why a Building Society i've never transacted with, keeps sending me [...]

Feathering the nest at international tournaments

Having seen the unfancied Italians see off the very much fancied Belgian's last night, my first thoughts (perhaps inevitably) were towards supposed 'big name' players not performing, as well as the hype that surrounds them going in to international tournaments. I find internationals competitions a very strange bubble of football when it comes to players [...]

The madness of money; will Arsène/Arsenal be stuck in 2010?

Yesterday I saw a Sky Sports News tweet about the youngster Reece Oxford, who made his Premier League debut against us, looked very good but who hasn't featured regularly since the start of the season. The tweet alluded to a rejection from the kid of a new contract from West Ham, no doubt designed to [...]

Uncomfortably numb about Leicester, irked by Kroenke

This Sunday could be a season defining game. The closer we get to it, the more and more it feels like it, yet I am still wrestling with my preconceptions that it isn't. Because it's Leicester. How crazy is that? If it was City, or United, Chelski or The Spuds, I'd have butterflies in my [...]

I am a commodity, I am a currency, I am an Arsenal fan

Today is Arsène's press conference and whilst I'd love to be able to be talking about football, I like many season ticket holders, have had the misfortune to receive an email from the club yesterday afternoon about the additional cash they will require me to fork out at the end of the season for the [...]

Supply. Demand. Arsenal.

I am the proud owner of an Arsenal season ticket. I pay the lowest possible amount you can pay for a season ticket, which is just over £1,000 per season, to which I have paid there or thereabouts for the last couple of years.  Am I happy about having to fork out more than any [...]
