Are Arsenal the new Everton?

Howdy folks and welcome to Tuesday. I’m at a conference all day today so it means an earlier than usual start so I can rattle through a few work emails before I head off.  It’s one of those annoying things where you know you’re out of the office and you know that unless you do [...]

Out of touch board klaxon; Arsène team update for Swansea

If the Kroenke spin machine was in full force on Wednesday night, then the Chips Express that trundled into town on Thursday was a complete derailment.  The AGM took place yesterday and as usual it was an affair of relatively pointless corporate nothingness, but unlike usual it was presided over by a man who couldn’t [...]

Kroenke spin machine in overdrive

It’s the AGM today and with the yanks in attendance and the AST set to go through with their symbolic gesture of no confidence by voting against Sir Chips and the Kroenke’s, it’s just to be a slightly more cagey atmosphere, even if that’s the best that fan groups can do to suggest change at the [...]

Lesser of two Arsenal evils?

Hello hello hello, hope you're well? Anything to talk about today that's Arsenal related? No? Oh well, bye then! Of course I'm kidding! You think NewsNow wouldn't have my a** on a plate if they let me get away with blogs that short? I remember after one of the many utterly abysmal Arsenal performances once, [...]

Stan Kroenke could rot Arsenal like Lerner, Gillett and Hicks

I'd heard - like I'm sure many of you did over social media - that the Kroenke bid for Usmanov's shares had happened, but the mainstream media are now going for it and so it seems like it's becoming more relevant and in the public eye, after Amy Lawrence from the Guardian wrote a story [...]

The Arsenal contract mess

I was kind of liking the Arsenal quiet zone that had existed whilst all of the players were away on international duty. It was like an oasis of calm amidst the gnashing of teeth on all sides at the moment. The silence wasn't deafening, it was bliss, and I took advantage to have a nice [...]

Arsenal cry wolf for the final time

Well, that's it then, we've ended the summer known as the 'Catalyst for Change' summer, with that usual of Arsenal things: an underwhelming feeling that comes when you know your club hasn't done all it can to be competitive. Here's the thing: I will go to many home games, I will go to a small [...]

I support Arsenal: I have been lied to

Hello. How are you doing? Hopefully you are holding up ok? Given the circumstances?  After all, three months ago you were told that Arsenal had a 'war chest' of around £200million to spend. You were fed lines by those who are used as PR mouthpieces for the club who you might not blame for the [...]

What does Wenger have to do?

As I made my usual walk towards Uxbridge tube station this morning I started to think about Arsène and how much he has fallen from the pedestal that I put him on in my mind. I started to think about how a man who I once hoped could manage us forever, is now a guy [...]

Spin merchants Arsenal dig out 2012 rhetoric

In 2014 when Arsène signed his last deal, there was a genuine feeling around some of the fanbase and people that I speak to, that it was probably worth giving it to him. We'd got the trophy monkey off our backs, we'd come out of a period of self imposed austerity and now we could [...]
