Alexis out this summer (Pep’ll be happy)

Apparently it's not just Arsenal who are hit with the injury curse of the international break. Yesterday Sadio Mane was hit with the confirmation that he'll be out for six weeks for Liverpool. Devastating news for Liverpool. Although six weeks leaves him handily placed to return in mid December and have a couple of games [...]

Defensive rotation at Arsenal – but are they ready?

Last night as Wales' World Cup Qualifying campaign drew to a close I spared a thought for poor ol' Aaron Ramsey. A good player who should probably be somebody who gets to showcase his skills at a World Cup finals, was denied victory by the reprobate that is James McClean, a player who I think [...]

Arsenal funnies: City, Lemar, Alexis and Koscielny

Howdy Gooners, hope you're holding up ok? Actually, it being an international break n'all, I kinda feel ok about it, because after last weekend and the subsequent failings in the transfer market, a bit of time away from the Arsenal is no bad thing. Of course when you write a daily Arsenal blog you kind [...]

Ox makes England 7% more interesting

"Well? How many Arsenal players are the England team?" The Management said to me yesterday.  "None at the moment. Full of dirty Spurs players. That's why I'm only half watching this sh*tshow" I said at half time. Of course much like the second half and the late flurry of goals, it got much more interesting, [...]

Alexis’ underlying threats should force Arsenal’s hand

What with the lack of domestic football, players going across the world and us as fans left to stew on the recent poor form, what we really needed was a star player giving an interview in his homeland laced with cryptic messages. Alexis was interviewed in Chile after their 3-1 win and noises started permeating [...]

Non-existent Arsenal succession planning

I've got to be honest with you, I thought we might get some sort of snippet coming out of the French press from Wenger with regards to this new deal that we all know is coming, given that he'll have been commentating on the French national team this weekend. The fact that he hasn't said [...]

A week off from Arsenal just the ticket

Happy Saturday folks. It's a Saturday in which London is bathed in a bit of sun today, so I intend on making the most of it, probably by staying in and watching TV or by going swimming in the indoor pool in Uxbridge. Yep, that's the British way, dontcha know. The Arsenal Way has essentially [...]

Alexis survives! Shame that Mourinho does too though

Alexis Sanchez really is something else, isn't he? For the last week all we've heard is how broken he is, how his heavy strapping is keeping his hamstring from twanging like an old banjo, yet last night he managed 84 minutes and two goals. What a machine. It just highlights to everyone how much of a [...]

Özil’s style may change; Santi’s return to help full backs

So, those pesky Chilean's have confirmed that Alexis will be playing for Chile tonight which whilst could leave some to being happy because his injury isn't as bad as first seemed, given the strapping on his leg You'd suspect they are patching him up and hoping for the best rather than him fully recovering. I'd imagine [...]
