Ivan’s at ChampMan again; Elneny offski?

I wonder if Ivan, Raoul and Sven have been playing Football Manager over the summer, because that's the only fathomable explanation why they've decided to issue a 'not-quite-official' declaration that Unai Emery's job is safe. There were a few reputable places online reporting it yesterday and when I read it whilst on my way to [...]

An expected City defeat, but some attacking worry remains

I expected us to lose against City because they're two years into the development of their team under Pep. His training, his identity of his team, the way they press, the acquisition of the types of players he wants; all of it was quite clearly evident yesterday as City we're controlled, they took their chances [...]

Ramsey new deal defines success of our midfield season

It's transfer deadline day today - a lot earlier than it's ever been - and despite some of the murmurings of a Dembele here, or centre half there, I think Arsenal's revolving door at Colney will be more busy by the 'exit' part than the 'entry'. We've got too many players. Jenkinson, Brammall, Perez, Welbeck, [...]

Smith-Rowe and Guendouzi impress in first outing

Happy Friday Gooners. We have a match to digest! Whoop! Been a long time coming, eh? Too long it feels. The World Cup was good, but it was kind of like having a Quorn chilli-con-carne. It's nice, you can spice it up to remove the fact it's not mince but ultimately, it's not mince. So [...]

England out, but Arsenal keep on signing

So for England the dream of a World Cup final dies and much like most of my life it happens wondering why the national team have always fallen short. Perhaps it's in the collective national psyche, because for a nation with the money, the domestic league, plus the talent in some positions, one World Cup [...]

Deals done early show an Arsenal with a plan

Another day, another new signing in the bag for Arsenal and it's one that whilst we've waited a while to get over the line, it's been done and confirmed and I cannot be happier. This is the type of profile of player that we needed at the club. Lucas Torreira may be small but he [...]

Arsenal have a transfer plan and it’s delicious

It all feels very efficient at Arsenal at the moment, doesn't it? I mean, it's almost as if we've known our weaknesses, known where we are in the pecking order, known who will improve us, so now we're going out and getting them. It's refreshing. The plan appears clear and yesterday whilst we were unable [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
