Arsenal losing Ox shows pathetic contract management

Selling Oxlade-Chamberlain to Chelski for £35million if he won't sign a new contract with one year to go makes sense. Selling Oxlade-Chamberlain full stop, does not make sense and if it happens, I personally won't be a happy bunny. He's certainly a player who divides opinion. I don't think I've seen such a 50/50 split [...]

Do we have enough at Arsenal? For tonight? The season?

It's match day. I'll be there tonight to see Arsenal as the Friday night curtain raiser against Leicester City and when the whistle goes I'll be roaring on my - and our - team against the Champions of two years ago. Is the squad ready for the whole season? Not in my opinion, because Arsène [...]

Victory in the 'Jose Treble' cup assured yesterday, our second trophy of pre season and a cast iron GUARANTEE that we will win the league, league cup, FA Cup and Europa League, all without dropping any points or conceding any goals. Or not. Before the game we were all clear that you can't read too [...]

Keita can be Wenger’s Gilberto

Howdy peeps, hope Wednesday is treating you well thus far, and you haven't exploded in anticipation for the showpiece trophy of the year this weekend? Yep, it's the Emirates Cup that awaits us on Saturday and Sunday and Arsène is certainly one that falls in to the 'excited anticipation' camp, if you believe what he [...]

The Ox: the most confusing contract situation ever

Friday's Lacazette excitement has been replaced with Sunday's Ox disappointment, as there are reports coming out today that the midfielder has snubbed his latest contract offer because he wants more game time centrally, something Liverpool can supposedly offer. This is one of the most 'will he/won't he' situations I have ever seen at Arsenal I [...]

Who gets binned off from Arsenal’s first team?

Yesterday I was chatting to a few peeps online about Naby Keita from RB Leipzig and how I'd seen a video and he looked ace. I also said I wouldn't mind him at Arsenal by the looks of him. He looks like he has that drive in midfield. The ability to travel quickly and with [...]

Odds stacked against us, but hope remains on Cup final day

So here we are. We've arrived at what is now the single most important day of the season and it's a day that will quite literally be season defining: the FA Cup Final. A win will have seen this shambles of a season end with some semblance of positivity about it. A win would give [...]

Maintain the momentum, Arsenal

Tonight's game against Sunderland is probably the closest you'll ever get to a 'dead rubber' game without it being an actual dead rubber or a game I think. Sunderland are down and have nothing but 'pride' to play for, which I've always found a ludicrous comment to make, because if you're relegated because you are [...]

Arsenal testing the jab against Southampton

Had you almost forgotten that feeling? You know the one I'm talking about. You know! The one where an Arsenal team has started to deliver consistent results on the pitch and looked like a side that is in the top quarter of the league. Yeah, that feeling, one which we had all thought was gone for [...]

Arsenal players don’t fight for our club

All last week I spoke to Gooners about yesterday's north London Derby and despite our fragile confidence and dodgy form, I was told by many that we had a chance because it is a derby match and form goes out of the window in derbies. My retort to people was "not for Arsenal. Not away. [...]
