Be nice to get ‘access-all-areas’ on deals 

By |May 20th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Transfers|0 Comments

Thursday afternoon drinking seems like a good idea at the time, but when you wake up on the Friday to make the hour-long commute on public transportation, you realise that it's probably not the best idea in the world. Still, it is Friday, the weekend is upon us and although there is no Arsenal to [...]

The madness of money; will Arsène/Arsenal be stuck in 2010?

By |May 18th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, finances, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Transfers|4 Comments

Yesterday I saw a Sky Sports News tweet about the youngster Reece Oxford, who made his Premier League debut against us, looked very good but who hasn't featured regularly since the start of the season. The tweet alluded to a rejection from the kid of a new contract from West Ham, no doubt designed to [...]

Walcott and Welbz: a tale of two rumours

By |May 10th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, injuries, Transfers|0 Comments

The two bits of big news coming out from tomorrow appear to be at right ends of the rumour spectrum. On one side we have a rumour which is related to transfer gossip and therefore probably more spurious than Dr Spurious of Spurious Town, with a PhD in Spuriology, whilst on the other side we [...]

Poor old Ox, as I think Arsene’s looking up top

By |May 7th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference, Transfers|0 Comments

Let's start today's blog by extending a little bit of sympathy to The Ox, as Arsene surprisingly confirmed yesterday that he's had a knee injury and will now be out for between six to eight weeks. From an Arsenal perspective this impacts us little; he was, after all, injured for the latter part of this [...]

Is the summer overhaul achievable at Arsenal? 

By |March 22nd, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|3 Comments

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

By |January 15th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, injuries, midfield, premier league, press conference, Transfers|0 Comments

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

By |September 11th, 2015|Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, premier league, press conference, Rant, soccer, Transfers|2 Comments

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

By |August 11th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Transfers|0 Comments

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

By |July 23rd, 2015|analogy, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, pre season, premier league, Transfers|0 Comments

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 [...]
