Is the summer overhaul achievable at Arsenal?

Petr Cech has won the Czech Republic footballer of the year, as voted for by the people of his homeland and I'm sure there aren't too many of us that would disagree, given the impact he's had on the team this season. In a summer that was pretty pitiful when it comes to our transfer [...]

Elneny the typhoon rolls in to town, but it’s the Ramsey/Coquelin/Cazorla conundrum that puzzles

I know we all rolled our eyes and manifested our delight of a signing by exhaling a big 'about time' when Mohamed Elneny was confirmed yesterday, but having listened to Arsène's video about the player too on the official site, I do wonder if he was the same as us. He readily accepted beginning the [...]

Arsène ‘The Deceiver’? Do me a favour

Ahh Friday. Full of promise of a weekend of enjoyment, full of Arsenal and everything a home 3pm Saturday afternoon kick off and full of fallout from an Arsène Wenger press conference. For it is he, the man with which so much irritation appears to be directed, who has caused much consternation amongst some Arsenal [...]

Days of dictatorial managers are dead

I'm not usually one to talk about what other clubs are doing, but the sheer trolling nature of the Pedro saga means I feel compelled to write something, because it is funny. Well, it would be if it was someone other than Chelski getting the player. If Pedro headed over to Dortmund at the last [...]

The dangers of thinking one game reflects a season

The fallout from the weekend's game still appears to be reverberating around the social media sphere, with Arsenal fans still disappointed with the opening weekend's result, but time will hopefully heal. It just takes a little longer when you have no frame of reference i.e. It's the first game of the season and you don't [...]

Arsène's stability wall protecting the Premier League trophy

Life is short. I seem to recall that it wasn't long ago that I was up north at Uni surrounded by Scousers and Mancs, whilst Arsène and Arsenal were doing me big favours by going unbeaten and giving me all manner of bragging rights amongst mates, one of whom was such a bitter United fan [...]

Movement on players, but is it the 'right' players at Arsenal?

By |July 22nd, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Defence, gooners, Gunners, midfield, pre season, Transfers|0 Comments

Mattieu Flamini to Galatasaray and Wojciech Szczesny to Roma on a one year deal, it seems, if the rumours across multiple newspapers and on radio shows are to be believed. Firstly the Flamster who, if we're all honest, probably knew his time was up at the club. The fact we're picking up a fee for [...]

One heck of a tour, one Hect of a player

Today will be an interesting test for the team because, as Arsène described at his pre-game presser in Singapore, both Everton and Stoke were really up for their game and there were plenty of 'committed' tackles going in. You hear things like that and the first thing you think of as a fan is "I [...]

Chuba to 'Kane' it up?

Happy Thursday fellow Goonerite. And lo, we have some actual football to talk about!  Yep, pre-season is officially underway and kicked off yesterday with a 4-0 romping of those world beaters known as the Singapore XI, with goals between Chuba Akpom and Jack Wilshere ensuring that it will be more realistic for the lazy of [...]

Loyalty works both ways and having none suits everyone in football

So it appears Matthieu Flamini might be the man to exit the Arsenal squad this summer then, after rumours across multiple websites appeared about the apparent interest from Bastia. Isn't that where Squillaci was packed off to, with the club waving any fee, because Bastia played the poverty card? Perhaps they are the Broadstairs of [...]
