Transfer formalities to be done, Chambers/Wilshere loan deals to be negotiated?

By |August 30th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|0 Comments

Welcome to Tuesday, which in my head, is actually a Monday because of the bank holiday. Don't worry, it's definitely Tuesday. I checked. Twice. And it seems as though the end of the transfer window will be greeted with confirmation on the two deals that Arsène pretty much confirmed on Saturday, so I'd expect to [...]

Arsenal are like my three-year-old-niece

Welcome to Tuesday y'all. We're now officially on a one week countdown before the transfer window has slammed shut and unsurprisingly, there is no news, which isn't at all like the saying. It's not really good at all. Of course we have to reserve judgement until the window has closed, but based on the data [...]

Campbell was never going to make it, but we’ve still got a week of ‘what if’

By |August 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, premier league, Rant, Transfers|5 Comments

It's Monday morning, I'm sat on a Met Line train heading towards London in a three piece suit, and it's muggy and uncomfortable as you like.  I'm tired. I feel bedraggled and already I feel like this day is going south. Feels a bit like Arsenal at the moment, eh? We look a little bedraggled [...]

Happy without Higuain? Why there are still plenty of options for Arsenal

By |August 14th, 2016|analysis, Transfers|1 Comment

So we missed out on Gonzalo Higuain, again. Nobody can really say that they were surprised though can they? Arsène Wenger is more comparable to a tight Yorkshireman than to a man overseeing one of the elite clubs in Europe, with unwillingness to fork out large sums. To splash over £70 million on a single player [...]

Mahrez/Lacazette – One or the other I think, with the likelihood that Walcott gets a chance up top

By |July 24th, 2016|Arsenal Transfers, Attack, pre season, Transfers|2 Comments

Happy Sunday to you and yours. After a glorious day of sun yesterday, in which I even managed a spot of practice fly fishing in the back garden of the in laws, today is looking decidedly greyer, sadly. Still, that appears to be inverse in comparison to the Arsenal universe, as everyone seems to be [...]

Crazy times, crazy fees, crazy surprises from Wenger? 

By |July 21st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, pre season, Transfers|4 Comments

These are strange and dangerous times, people, strange and dangerous times. In the wider world outside football there is much conflict, with countries declaring states of emergency, as well as the bigots using 'Brexit' as a means to peddle their own racist views with what seems like impunity. Plus, Sam Allardyce is about to be [...]

Rambo’s absence felt; I’m #TeamMesut tonight

So the Welsh dragon had its wings clipped and its fire doused yesterday, by the Portuguese who were it not for Ronaldo, would probably be liked by a lot more neutrals. That guy really is a narcissistic tosser, isn't he? I mean just look at that self-gratifying celebration where he turns around to show his [...]

Raiola is taking the Mkhi

Sometimes people do get a little too worried about stuff that they can have absolutely no influence on, don't they? Of course this being an Arsenal blog, and me being somebody who regularly writes about Arsenal related stuff, I've probably shown a few examples of that in the past, but this morning and last night [...]

Feathering the nest at international tournaments

By |June 14th, 2016|contracts, finances, Internationals, soccer, Transfers|0 Comments

Having seen the unfancied Italians see off the very much fancied Belgian's last night, my first thoughts (perhaps inevitably) were towards supposed 'big name' players not performing, as well as the hype that surrounds them going in to international tournaments. I find internationals competitions a very strange bubble of football when it comes to players [...]

Vardy’s choice shouldn’t really be a choice at all

By |June 7th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|4 Comments

So, in classic Arsenal style, we've been inadvertently drawn into another transfer saga. One in which, if we're all honest, shouldn't even be something that we're talking about. Jamie Vardy has done all of his talking, he's had offer and counter offer in this unusually public courtship for Arsenal, now he finds himself with a [...]
