The pros and cons of Arsenal’s hard Premier League start

In this past week I've talked about the importance of momentum, about how when we've even been anywhere near the top of the league at any stage, it's been because we've had a good start to the season and that has carried through until at least the midway point. Yesterday I talked about it being [...]

All kicking off at Colney as Arsenal rush to deal before World Cup

Morning all, Last night I was on LoveSport Radio talking about the World Cup and a bit of The Arsenal with Giles and Dave talking about the World Cup, country and western music and everything in between and as appears to be becoming a habit when we go on these shows, David Ornstein dropped another [...]

Torreira deal moving at London traffic pace

Alrighty folks? How goeth it? Mighty fine? Or 'meh'? The lack of Arsenal news is a little 'meh'. Well, concrete Arsenal news that is. The main rumour rumblings appear to be Torreira from Sampdoria but in an effort to be seen as the leading light of insight on this deal, you've got outlets like Di [...]

Rosicky, World Cup and Premier League fixtures week: get excited

World Cup week is upon us and that means we have something else we'll be able to talk about for a whole month, enabling us to detach ourselves from the drivel that cones from the click-bait nonsense that the media want to serve up to us like the ad revenue hungry so-and-so's that they are. [...]

Sokratis Senior spills the beans

So it looks like 'Mr Socko' (little WWF reference for all you old school wrestling fans) is on his way to The Arsenal after his father...erm...Passthepoddodomolous Senior...said on a Greek radio station that it'll happen tomorrow. Which I can now confirm is officially today. It's one of those moves where Sokratis himself will probably be [...]

Xhaka’s Swiss deployment intrigues me

Morning folks. I tell you what, my back is killing me. Never had this before. Lower back pain. Managed to get through 35 years on this earth without anything such as a twinge, but for three days i've been waking up feeling like I'm in my 80s. Now I know how About DIaby must feel [...]

Is it the Arsenal players that are the problem?

Bit of a provocative blog title today, I know, but it's something I've been thinking of for a while since the Emery appointment was announced. We've spent years being led to believe that it's Arsène's laissez-faire attitude to team structure, to specific and detailed instructions, that have been an issue for these players. We knew [...]

With Sokratis the defensive questions still remain

Flipping heck it's muggy today. So muggy I want to sack off work, get into my swim shorts and convince the wife to fan me as I watch re-runs of the Invincibles season. British people aren't used to this kind of weather. Three piece suits aren't designed for this. As for Arsenal fans, we're also [...]

Rambo and Huss have a date; Sven and Ousmane too?

Well it seems Rambo is getting the positive vibes following the appointment of our new man Emery. He's been talking after a pointless game for Wales in the US against Mexico and said he 'can't wait' to get back to Arsenal to see how this exciting new era starts. We all feel the same Aaron. [...]

Sokratis hardly inspires, but we hope for a plan

Morning folks. It was a bank holiday yesterday in the UK and as a result I simply couldn't be arsed to drag my sorry carcass out of bed to write a blog. But also there was a dearth of news that is available on Arsenal and so I just figured 'meh'. Then yesterday afternoon I [...]
