Before I talk about the inevitable news re: Torreira and his potential signing, how about a word for The Argies, eh? I mean, we thought it was England who had the monopoly on bottling it big time at the World Cup, but those Messi-led misfits completely sh*t the bed last night and now are only [...]

Arsenal doing contracts right, VAR doing Football wrong

The World Cup is now we'll and truly underway and despite the fact I've only really watched bits and pieces so far - because of a busy weekend for me in the real world - there's already been plenty to talk about and that's certainly a good thing. On Friday night I watched the second [...]

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 [...]

Yesterday my blog featured a few words and a picture of Joel Campbell, speculating that it's a clean slate for many and that players like Joel might think they have a chance with the new man at the helm, but having watched him in bits and pieces of yesterday's Costa Rica game against England I [...]

Can Emery afford to experiment with Iwobi in the middle?

I'd like to tell you that I watched last nights game between Real Madrid Legends and Arsenal Legends, that I am a die-hard fan that wouldn't have missed it for the world but in reality, it wasn't for me and so I celebrated my Dad's birthday in a Beefeater instead. I don't know what it [...]

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 [...]

NLD – the nerves begin

Happy post Interlull day to you. At least I think it is because most of the European fixtures - playoffs and friendlies - were played yesterday and so I suspect players will be returning back to their clubs from today to get back in to training for tomorrow.  As you all know by now I [...]

Giroud – best of the Arsenal rest?

Morning folks. Welcome to Tuesday and welcome to a day in which that most emotional of people - the Italians - will be even more emotional given the fact that they’re players failed to reach the World Cup finals for the first time in a gazillion years.  I mention this only because I work with [...]

Interlull nothingness or NLD fear?

Ahh man, this feels like it’s a real dragger of an Interlull, and not just because there’s little going around by the way of Arsenal news. I tune out the transfer tittle-tattle when there’s still six weeks to go until the January window opens, and when it’s a window that doesn’t usually see big clubs [...]
