Options for Arsène and opportunities for players

By |July 14th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, Internationals, midfield, pre season, premier league|2 Comments

Quiet. All so very quiet. So quiet in fact, that the press are even giving up on rumours it seems, because Draxler/Higuain are the only names I saw banded about on NewsNow when I had a check earlier.  So we find ourselves having to look at alternative things to talk about, with my mind wandering [...]

Raiola is taking the Mkhi

Sometimes people do get a little too worried about stuff that they can have absolutely no influence on, don't they? Of course this being an Arsenal blog, and me being somebody who regularly writes about Arsenal related stuff, I've probably shown a few examples of that in the past, but this morning and last night [...]

Mapping out the perfect summer, starting with Xhaka and Mesut

By |May 21st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, premier league|0 Comments

So it seems the wheels are properly in motion for Granit Xhaka to be joining the club, after multiple outlets confirmed his impending arrival for a medical, with the most reliable David Ornstein going as far as to say it's on the verge of completion. This is good moves by the club and by Arsene. [...]

History vs trophies vs money

By |May 19th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, History, premier league|1 Comment

Yesterday Scouse dreams ended when they came up against a very good Sevilla side who have come up with a formula for winning the Europa League, and quickly frankly, they're good at it. I have no major beef with Liverpool fans. I know a few southern Scouse wannabes though, most of whom are quite unbearable [...]

The madness of money; will Arsène/Arsenal be stuck in 2010?

Yesterday I saw a Sky Sports News tweet about the youngster Reece Oxford, who made his Premier League debut against us, looked very good but who hasn't featured regularly since the start of the season. The tweet alluded to a rejection from the kid of a new contract from West Ham, no doubt designed to [...]

Arsenal upsetting the narrative apple cart 

By |May 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, premier league, Rant|3 Comments

As the immediate euphoria of the hilarity of finishing about the Tiny Totts begand to die away yesterday afternoon whilst at work, I started to search out unread articles from journalists, surely backtracking on the inevitable 'North London Power Shift' rhetoric that had been gathering momentum in the last few weeks. I thought it might [...]

It ACTUALLY did happen again…

By |May 16th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

In this season of the bizarre and ridiculous, perhaps it was most fitting that on the final day an Arsenal team all had written off as quite poor, took one final step upwards in the league to leapfrog the Spuds by hammering Villa. In return, Newcastle decided to finally show up for their fans, giving [...]

Arsenal; Finish this off with a flurry against Villa

By |May 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

So here we are at last. It's the final game of the 2015/16 season and what started out as one in which I thought we really would win the league this year, petered out as it usually does for Arsenal after Christmas. Our inconsistency has cost us and our injury problems have crippled us, but [...]

Arsene’s margins are fine re: contract; players WILL come in during the summer

By |May 14th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Well then, what shall we talk about today, then? Maybe what Arsene said during his presser yesterday? Oh, alright then. Team news is that Mesut is back and after looking like he was going to smash Henry's record, he still needs two more assists just to equal it. It's not been from the want of [...]

Is Arsène asking himself the right questions?

By |May 13th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference|4 Comments

Yesterday afternoon Arsène spoke about how everyone at the club is devastated that Danny Welbeck has picked up this second injury. You'd expect him to say something like that and as I lamented yesterday, I too won't dwell on what has been a terrible injury at a time in which his importance to the team was obvious [...]
