Gazidis: the Samir Nasri CEO

By | 2018-09-18T07:54:02+00:00 September 18th, 2018|Arsenal FC, finances, gooners, Gunners, History, Ownership and the board, Rant|2 Comments

Back in Blighty and back to normality for me after Portugal and New York at the weekend and whilst I was hoping to talk about the Newcastle game, impact of Torreira, Xhaka, etc, etc, it's Gazidis who seems to be dominating the topic of conversation after Arseblog News broke the story that he's set to [...]

Ramsey contract/bench links are tosh

Howdy folks, hope you've started your day in a positive fashion, reading through messages of Dennis Bergkamp who yesterday in 1995 signed for The Arsenal and went on to become a legend at the club. Thierry will always be my king, but Dennis is god. That's how it is with Arsenal fans. As for modern [...]

Chambers, Ramsey, Holding and fearing City – wobbly with a week to go

We're less than a week before the big kick off to the Premier League so perhaps inevitably, what with the transfer window shutting on Friday too, Arsenal are suddenly looking less than perfect when it comes to preparation with the new season. I'm talking of the Ramsey situation of course, but also of the Calum [...]

Özil goes in hard on Football/politics debate

It's a bit hot for three-piece suits in London, I can tell you that much, but when one has a personal 'brand' to maintain, the air temperature can't get in the way :-) It's also getting hot over at the German FA by the looks of it, because yesterday Mesut Özil dropped a bomb on [...]

Sommer this summer for Arsenal? Nope

Morning all and welcome to another day and another load of transfer balderdash, with the news that we're supposedly interested in Yann Sommer from Borussia Monchengladbach, which would be one of the oddest moves I could imagine. I mean I get that Cech is being linked away from the club. We've signed a £22million 'keeper [...]

Mustafi is out the Arsenal door and ‘double jeopardy’ rule is a farce

Holiday over for me, a week in the sun of Italy and wouldn't you know it, they're not really making a big deal of the competition in Naples? Huh, who'd have thunk it? I could probably talk to you about all of the different Arsenal-related stuff that has gone on whilst I'm away but no [...]

The pros and cons of Arsenal’s hard Premier League start

In this past week I've talked about the importance of momentum, about how when we've even been anywhere near the top of the league at any stage, it's been because we've had a good start to the season and that has carried through until at least the midway point. Yesterday I talked about it being [...]

A meaningless loss still hurts

I don't really know what more can be said about Arsenal away this season that hasn't already been spoken about time and time again this season and quite frankly, from a footballing perspective, next Monday and the end of this horrific campaign can well and truly get in the bin. I could talk about the [...]

Permutations show how far Arsenal have fallen

It's that time of the year where football fans start to become mathematicians, as they try to calculate the various permutations that could befall their football team. How many points to be assured of safety? How many points to get in to the playoff places? How close are we to the Europa League spots? What [...]
