Oracles speak, groups get grouped and Arsenaldom feels a little brighter

So, as with all Arsenal transfers, sh*t doesn't really get real until yer man David Ornstein gives out a little titbit of information via the medium of Twitter. I think it's something like stage four of a five stage process, to be honest with you, with the final stage just being the medical, confirm terms between [...]

Perez a little underwhelming, but don’t write off, yet

Happy Thursday to you and yours. Yesterday it was so hot during the day, I made the mistake of emailing The Management and telling her that we were going to BBQ in the evening. It was all going so well until I sat down to eat my food, by which time lightning began to flash [...]

Bob McVeteran to sign for Arsenal??(disclaimer – not a real person)

By |August 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league|1 Comment

So it appears as though news is starting to trickle through the airwaves that the so-called 'madness' signing is, in fact, Antoine Griezmann. That would indeed be a fine piece of 'madness', were it to be pulled off by the club, Arsène Wenger too.  But unfortunately, as is the case with Arsenal under Arsène and [...]

Arsenal are like my three-year-old-niece

By |August 23rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, History, premier league, Rant, Transfers|7 Comments

Welcome to Tuesday y'all. We're now officially on a one week countdown before the transfer window has slammed shut and unsurprisingly, there is no news, which isn't at all like the saying. It's not really good at all. Of course we have to reserve judgement until the window has closed, but based on the data [...]

Campbell was never going to make it, but we’ve still got a week of ‘what if’

By |August 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, premier league, Rant, Transfers|5 Comments

It's Monday morning, I'm sat on a Met Line train heading towards London in a three piece suit, and it's muggy and uncomfortable as you like.  I'm tired. I feel bedraggled and already I feel like this day is going south. Feels a bit like Arsenal at the moment, eh? We look a little bedraggled [...]

A draw, more inertia, and Arsène’s bizarre comments

By |August 21st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

This will probably be a shorter blog than usual, because I'm away with family for the weekend and so have only watched a few of the highlights, so some of the thoughts below are based purely on seeing the result after the game. Broadly speaking, a draw away to the champions is a normally nothing [...]

A reaction is essential for Arsenal, to avoid the sharks circling

By |August 20th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Happy Saturday gooners. It's match day and it's an away trip to Leicester City that the team has in front of them to try to erase the residual embarrassment that was caused from last weekend's home defeat to Liverpool. Sadly, there's no new faces to freshen the team today, so the decision that Arsène has [...]

Arsene’s ready to spend – like we were ready for the season?

Hi y'all, hope you're good, after all it is Friday. That's something to be positive about. Right? We also had Arsene's presser to talk about, which he did a day early, as is the custom these days when the team travel away from home. He spoke of a great many things, some of which I'll [...]

Kroenke the parasite; Mahrez decision causes more apprehension

By |August 18th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

I decided to say a little something yesterday on Twitter, to chip in, on the whole Stan Kroenke thing. Y'know, the whole 'get out of our club mate' vibe that has been consistent for a few years. I didn't get any abuse, but I did see a few sneers from people online about those being [...]

Jack’s Holding on to Rob, Shokran’s holding out for a transfer

By |August 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

I don't know about you, but this week - footballistically speaking - certainly feels like it's dragging on, as we're still only at Wednesday and I'm still a little raw from the opening day defeat.  I'm trying to remember if it's always been like this at the beginning of the season. I think it might [...]
