Özil in a familiar situation

Yesterday felt like the first proper 'World Cup' day for me, as I managed to catch at least two and a half of the three games on TV, in between a Father's Day BBQ in classic British overcast weather. What we were treated to was certainly a bit of surprise and with Germany going 'Full [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Big day for Unai; Calum to Fulham?

By | 2018-06-14T07:53:49+00:00 June 14th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Internationals, premier league, Transfers, Unai Emery|0 Comments

Today is quite a big day in Unai Emery's Arsenal career, if you think about it, because in just over an hours time from me penning today's thoughts the Premier League fixtures will be out and we'll know whether he has been granted an opportunity to play a series of 'winnable' games or whether he's [...]

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. [...]

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. [...]

Everyone’s still alive

Happy Saturday folks. Hope it's a good one for you? Mine has been good so far. Woken up with a mini hangover. You know the type of hangover where you're a little tired, but not feeling like death warmed up? Yep, that kind of hangover, which I don't mind too much. So now I'm sat [...]

English footballers abroad

Slow Gooner news day, huh? I woke up this Sunday morn and did my usual flick through some of the news to see if anything was happening in the Arsenal world. There isn't. It's quiet. Too quiet. Too quiet because whilst I said yesterday that I was looking forward to a football-free weekend, it turns [...]

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 [...]
