Lacazette’s absence means ‘Dat Guy’ gets his wish

I'm looking real hard for when the good news will start coming at Arsenal, I've got to be honest with you, because yesterday's Lacazette news just feels like yet another sh*t sandwich being served up to us and told to chow down. Domestically - League Cup aside - this season has been a festering pustule [...]

Form, team news and Wembley streak (which is tosh)

An early presser yesterday from the manager meant that we got some juicy updates on Arsenal a little earlier than the standard time but, let's be honest we're all so content starved following a great win last weekend and relative radio silence, that the Arsenal internet community was desperate to get something ahead of the [...]

Reconciling Arsenal results with transfers

Happy Friday to you and unto your kin. I hope you are well. I am still wrestling with my emotions from an Arsenal front if I'm honest. That's because I'm trying to reconcile the rapidly deteriorating football quality with the injection-in-arm adrenaline boost of signing one of the world's strikers, followed by the confirmation on [...]

The waiting game: Aubameyang

Sometimes football can be as predictable as TV soap operas can't it? Particularly football's equivalent of the gutter trash storylines, which are usually the most sleazy in January and the summer months. So in what is this winters latest plot we saw the development late last night that most of us must have expected following [...]

Lacazette to relish Mkhi and Ozil behind him?

Howdy all and welcome to a mid season Saturday with absolutely no prospect of Arsenal on the horizon and actually, having said yesterday that I'm kind of ok with it given we're going to Wembley, I'd still rather it was us away to Hull and not Forest. That kind of sucks. But what's done is [...]

The Arsenal good news came yesterday – but transfers got in the way

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 [...]
