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 [...]

No Mai Tai’s for Theo; Jack needs his body to hold together

Not content with a lie in after Thursday night's squad rotation game against Doncaster, Arsène was back in to London Colney yesterday to give his pre-match presser to those bleary-eyed hacks who had travelled in following their deadlines for copy the night before. First and foremost came the team news and it's a good job [...]

No Mesut this weekend?

Morning folks, hope y'all are alreet? This Thursday football, delayed kick off malarky is havoc on the ability to write content you know. Yesterday I was cream-crackered and today as I chow down on my honey and peanut crunch cereal, I have no press conference words from Wenger to have a look at and work [...]

A development squad and something different in Europe for Arsenal

Arsène's press conference today will be interesting, not least because despite strongly hinting at rotation for this European competition we find ourselves in this season, we still don't categorically know just how much rotation the manager intends on tomorrow evening against Cologne.  Is he going to go the whole hog and switch the entire team [...]

So much to get through today, that I'm not even sure the trip from Uxbridge to Moorgate will be enough time to see me include everything, such is the case after an interlull.  Unlike a tactically drip-fed Arsène Wenger beIN interview, we don't get dribs and drabs, just the whole shabang. Let's start with dear [...]

Gabriel out? Chambers out? Three at the back out?

Morning y'all.  Well with Arsène's presser yesterday we were treated to an update on player availability and thankfully, we appear to be having some centre halves returning, which is nice given we play three at the back and last weekend we decided to go with two left backs in the middle. Of course we all [...]
