Gazidis: the Samir Nasri CEO

By | 2018-09-18T07:54:02+00:00 September 18th, 2018|Arsenal FC, finances, gooners, Gunners, History, Ownership and the board, Rant|2 Comments

Back in Blighty and back to normality for me after Portugal and New York at the weekend and whilst I was hoping to talk about the Newcastle game, impact of Torreira, Xhaka, etc, etc, it's Gazidis who seems to be dominating the topic of conversation after Arseblog News broke the story that he's set to [...]

Ivan stays or goes – both work for The Arsenal

Happy 'middle-o-week' day to you and your kin. I hope it shall be a fruitful one and you take advantage of the day. Arsenal still reside in Singapore and we're getting plenty of emoji-based icons to denote how hard they're working, how they're doing double sessions, all the while being given more access to backroom [...]

Özil goes in hard on Football/politics debate

By | 2018-07-23T07:53:18+00:00 July 23rd, 2018|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, Rant, soccer|2 Comments

It's a bit hot for three-piece suits in London, I can tell you that much, but when one has a personal 'brand' to maintain, the air temperature can't get in the way :-) It's also getting hot over at the German FA by the looks of it, because yesterday Mesut Özil dropped a bomb on [...]

Arsenal’s squad turnover: The New Batch

I've gotta be honest with you; felt a little bit weird seeing Jack Wilshere in a West Ham shirt yesterday. I don't know why because there have clearly been pictures of him as a little boy in a West Ham shirt, due to his family supporting the club, but it still felt odd and I [...]

Jack to go, hello Leno

Arsenal are certainly moving faster than any other summer we've seen in some time aren't they? Yesterday the club confirmed the arrival of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen in a deal which sounds like it's not of €20million. It's a deal that I've already mentioned I'm not sure of and I've already wondered whether or [...]

Emery will get less ‘lives’ than Arteta

Morning all. It's the day after the day after 'the news' that we're getting a new man was all but confirmed and I think everyone is still coming to terms with the left of field appointment of Emery. I must say I'm surprised by some sections of our fan base who appear to be against [...]

Ivan Gazidis is betting his cajones on this appointment

Happy Friday, the first of the post-Wenger reign, and yesterday some footage emerged from Le Olde Boss from his usual media mouthpiece BeIn sports about who might succeed him and he had his say on Arteta as the likely candidate. I've watched this interview a couple of times now and when you see what he's [...]

Be cool on manager search, Gooners

By | 2018-05-15T07:02:46+00:00 May 15th, 2018|Arsenal FC, contracts, History, Ownership and the board|2 Comments

So we're into day two of the post-Wenger era and unsurprisingly it looks like some people are losing their sh*t. It's unsurprising because today's modern footballing community of fans want everything instantly. New signings, new managers, trophies, new kits, news in general. Everything has to be right this second and if it isn't then there's [...]

A monkey off a back and a thanks to a great man

So it all ends. Arsène's time as Arsenal manager has now finished and thankfully it did so with an away win. A monkey that had firmly attached itself to this team's back has been prized from its metaphorical shoulders with Arsène's final win and the man who we have all known as our manager sails [...]

Lots of ‘lasts’ for Wenger

Happy Friday y'all. A Friday in which we've now had time to digest the nuggets from Arsène's press conference and see him pull out yet more of those gems of quotes that he's done over the years. Of course the journos lapped it up. Talk of saying goodbye to trees, having early press conferences just [...]
