Here we are at the end of a week in which we've lost our longest servant, are in the verge of losing arguably our best player (although that's debatable this season), still have to see any large-value replacement come in but could be on the verge of at least two very exciting transfers. It's quite [...]

Alexis’ departure could be good for Lacazette

So where else do we start this morning than yesterday's press conference in which Arsène seemed to all but admit that Alexis is off this January, but only if a replacement can be found and I must admit, at least it's all out there and we know what is going to happen in the next [...]

Draxler or Mkhitaryan for Arsenal?

I don't know about you but my first full working week back in the office absolutely flew by, which is grand because a) I do love a weekend, and b) it's the return of Premier League Football to (hopefully) wash that bitter taste in my mouth brought about by the Nottingham Forest FA Cup debacle. [...]

Arsène spin machine dial turned to max today?

Friday is press conference day today and we'll get an Arsène Wenger masterclass in deflection today I suspect. After all, his team have been pretty blunted way from home all season and as a result we've never really broken into any form of any real meaning. But tomorrow provides an opportunity to pick up points [...]

Injuries to force Arsène’s formation hand tomorrow?

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 [...]

Reversal of fortune for Arsenal tomorrow?

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 [...]
