Lacazette wants to go to Alton Towers

Arsène's doing his press conference in just over an hour from when I start writing today's Wednesday blog. It's the first time I can remember him having a Wednesday press conference ahead of a Premier League game on the Saturday and I can only conclude one of the following: He wants to get on the [...]

Sell Alexis. Now.

I know Arsène remains steadfast in his public comments about Alexis Sanchez, and that the latest 'injury' to the player has come at a very coincidental time, but am I the only one thinking: Tempt PSG into a large bid. ??? He's not signing a new deal, I'd rather lose him now and reinvest the [...]

Friday games to break opening day hoodoo?

These Friday games, eh? It's like some sort of footballing jet lag with press conferences on a Wednesday, the match on a Friday after a long gruelling week of work and the decisions on whether to drink in the City or closer to The Emirates, all conspiring to make this the most unusual of season [...]

Resolution from Arsenal on Alexis is admirable but foolhardy

Hey folks, hope you're all alreet? I had a charity casino night last night, so a few Sol's and some Chateuneuf du Pape are conspiring to make me feel very old and very tired ahead of a day in the Big Smoke.  Arsenal-wise, however, there is the freshness of a new season upon us and [...]

Laca learns from Theo, Wenger dials up the spin on contracts

Well that's one shiny and oh so important trophy safely tucked away in the cabinet for another season, as Arsenal conspired to lose to Sevilla but still win the Emirates Cup due to the bizarre system of points scoring based on goals that is in place.  The 2-1 defeat to Sevilla saw us pick up [...]

2002 Arsenal/Chelsea karma scares me

I'm an Arsenal fan in my mid thirties and can I admit something to you: winning trophies - any trophies- means a hell of a lot more to me than it did ten years ago. Ten years ago I thought to myself that setting us up to be financially sound, to deliver Champions League football [...]

Rotation or not for this weekend? Big Tone has his say (long ago) and Lucas for Cheese

It's Friday, it's the last press conference of the Premier League season and I for one couldn't be happier, because it means the end to this league campaign of disappointment. It also means we're at the final press conference of the season in which we'll have to hear about Arsène's future, because it'll either be [...]

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 [...]

Fitness question marks ahead of Mordor

Oddly, it doesn't look as though there's a press conference happening today and I think I read somewhere that the press conference was the one that took place immediately after the Wednesday game at Southampton. It'll be slightly odd to do it that way but given that the team will have travelled back on Wednesday [...]

Rotation, hope and redemption for a returner at Arsenal

It seems only yesterday that we were revelling in our home comforts of beating United, yet here we are with another press conference, ahead of another 'cannot lose' match. Oh wait a second, it was yesterday that I was revelling, because we seemed to have consortina'd our end of season in to one short, sharp, [...]
