Morning folks. Gee-golly it's a cold one in London this morning, sure to be as frosty as Arsène's response when he's asked why he can't put together a team that can win consistently away from home. Wins against Watford, Stoke and Southampton this last weekend just gone would probably see us as one of the [...]

Happy Saturday y'all. Hope you're coping without The Arsenal? Me - I'm going to go and watch Justice League with The Management and then follow it up by having myself a Chiquitoes, the most exciting part of which is definitely the Admiral Old J they have in stock in my local restaurant. Football takes a [...]

Options for Arsenal on ‘Match Day B’ vs Koln

Match day today, although given it's featuring an Arsenal B team, perhaps games like the one this evening against F.C. Koln should be renamed 'Match Day B'? It's a curious one, is today's game, because we're up against a German side who are on their own turf. It's also a team who gave us a [...]

Go big names tomorrow Arsène

Yesterday Arsène spoke to the assembled media to give a bit of an update on the team news and I suppose the good stuff is that nobody has been maimed enough to be sitting out that we didn’t already know about. Mustafi and Welbeck look to be back, Giroud is our, whilst the sword of [...]

Appreciating Santi when he’s gone; no gung-ho tomorrow Arsene

Poor old Santi, eh? Not only does he have eight operations in a year to save his ability to walk, play football, etc, but the doctors have to take a part of his tattoo on another bit of his body as a skin graft, to sew him back up again together. There are plenty of [...]

The fun of midweek Arsenal – Red Star preview

It’s another European exertion for the fringe players tonight, as ‘Arsenal Midweek Select XI’ take on Red Star Belgrade at The Emirates and as I’ve said before, I’m coming around to this midweek football, mainly because it doesn’t seem to have the same tenseness that I get around the Premier League games. Also known as [...]

Mat’s back and Alexis/Sead have a love in – temporary solutions

As far as I can tell there should be a press conference this morning or today at some stage, ahead of the game tomorrow night against REd Star Belgrade, so it’ll be interesting to see who Arsène brings along with him to sit in on the presser and which squad player gets the ‘bigging up’ [...]

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 [...]

Morning folks. Lots of juicy Arsenal stuff to talk about today, so let's get right down to it, starting from where I left off yesterday which was that Arsène confirmed what Özil's agent said which was that talks were going well. of course we'd hardly expect the manager to say "it's a faaaaaacking shambles actually. We [...]

Mesut, Jack and the cancer that is Stan Kroenke

Howdy folks. It's another Arsenaless Saturday in the Premier League which means more of the usual having to watch other teams play football before we get our chance. Sure, it means you can do other things with your Saturday, but it just doesn't feel right not seeing that much Arsenal on the first of the [...]
