Nelson – the first proper Arsenal LANS?

I'm sorry but anybody who can get remotely 'up for' this selection of international football boredom festivals that are arranged for this weekend probably needs an enima from Dr Seward from Dracula Dead and Loving it. For me the only purpose these intermissions of proper football provide is when we're on a poor run of [...]

Press high, force Fulham into mistake, and minimise your own, Arsenal

A 12pm kick off is a funny old thing. It's the earliest type of kick off you get in the Premier League and whilst I'm no fan of Sunday games anyway, I can tolerate these more because it still feels like you have something of a day after the team have played, although only if [...]

Nelson and Lacazette out the door?

With all of the hoo-ha of the start of the Premier League I think most of us had forgotten the fact English clubs can't become embroiled in an end of August transfer scrap on Friday. It's been refreshing to know that there won't be any destabilising of players as the season starts. Well, that is [...]

Arsenal Deadwood sequel to pave way for Ramsey signing?

Happy Thursday y'all! It's technically still summer in the UK but given the drizzle that has engulfed my particular corner of the world, you'd never have guessed it, because it's looking pretty grim. As grim as Carl Jenkinson's hopes of getting out of Football limbo, where he currently resides, too expensive salary-wise to leave Arsenal [...]

Ramsey new deal defines success of our midfield season

It's transfer deadline day today - a lot earlier than it's ever been - and despite some of the murmurings of a Dembele here, or centre half there, I think Arsenal's revolving door at Colney will be more busy by the 'exit' part than the 'entry'. We've got too many players. Jenkinson, Brammall, Perez, Welbeck, [...]

Deadline day looms as defensive questions are asked

Well it's all been pretty much confirmed and after yesterday's Kroenke news I've obviously had my say in yesterday's blog. This morning I wake up resigned to the fact we are powerless to do anything. There are talks of protests, or not turning up to the first game, leaving the seats empty and showing Kroenke [...]

This week must see player movement

Morning folks. It's a muggy old day in England, having been a muggy and rainy day yesterday and so here I sit on the tube, having a look outside on the Metropolitan Line at clouds and circular patches of water on the floor, wondering why the summer has ended so soon in all but the [...]

Ivan stays or goes – both work for The Arsenal

Happy 'middle-o-week' day to you and your kin. I hope it shall be a fruitful one and you take advantage of the day. Arsenal still reside in Singapore and we're getting plenty of emoji-based icons to denote how hard they're working, how they're doing double sessions, all the while being given more access to backroom [...]

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 [...]

Irrational Arsenal fan jealously, Coman and the youth team cash cow

I'll level with you: I'm a little bit jealous of Liverpool and how in the last couple of seasons they've actually got their sh*t together. When Klopp arrived there was a period of adjustment and when he didn't conquer all in his first full season at the club I was more than happy enough to [...]
