Kroenke the parasite; Mahrez decision causes more apprehension

By |August 18th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

I decided to say a little something yesterday on Twitter, to chip in, on the whole Stan Kroenke thing. Y'know, the whole 'get out of our club mate' vibe that has been consistent for a few years. I didn't get any abuse, but I did see a few sneers from people online about those being [...]

Jack’s Holding on to Rob, Shokran’s holding out for a transfer

By |August 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

I don't know about you, but this week - footballistically speaking - certainly feels like it's dragging on, as we're still only at Wednesday and I'm still a little raw from the opening day defeat.  I'm trying to remember if it's always been like this at the beginning of the season. I think it might [...]

You’re either a happy or infuriated gooner this morning

Depending on what you choose to read, who you choose to follow and when you choose to do either, you were either very excited, very disappointed, or just very confused yesterday. All of the signs over the weekend seemed to have pointed towards an imminent arrival of Shokran Mustafi by the middle of this week, [...]

No identity, no points, very Arsenal

By |August 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Review, premier league, Rant|3 Comments

So. Right. Erm, where does one start after yet another opening day defeat? I genuinely have no idea. Gotta start somewhere though, right?  Perhaps this blog today will be as disjointed as the team felt yesterday in a pretty abject performance. Well, when you concede four at home you have to say it's abject, don't [...]

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 [...]

Liverpool’s new signings to bed in – we don’t have that problem!!

By |August 14th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Oh match day, how I have missed thee, let me count the ways.... ...loads. Like, literally, loads. It's the first one of the season for us and, having seen the mighty Champions in Leicester - they know who they are and they reminded us yesterday in their chants - lose to Hull, whilst Everton drew [...]

Arsène can arrest the negativity with a win tomorrow

By |August 13th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference, Uncategorised|0 Comments

Happy Saturday and welcome to the first day of the season, albeit without any Arsenal, although that's ok, right? I mean, it allows us to take some sides by cheering on the teams of those that we perceive are the nearest rivals, so at least that's something.  So today you and I will be temporary [...]

Mustafi shuffling his way closer to Arsenal, but ‘internal solutions’ are now Arsène’s immediate priority

By |August 12th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

It's 7am on Friday as I write this, with at least 2 hours until Arsène's first presser of the season and where normally there would be anticipation and excitement on our chances this season, there is mainly only worry that what usually happens to Arsenal - injuries - has come at least two months earlier [...]

Özil, Mustafi, Mahrez Thursday bluster and speculating

By |August 11th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, contracts, premier league|0 Comments

Ok, plenty of trips to wade through this morning, so let's have at it. By tripe, I mean transfer giff-gaff, media bluster, journo hyperbole and all that jazz. Firstly to BILD, who have been interviewing our German maestro which has been translated by the English speaking press, quoting him as saying that he'd jump at [...]

DEFCON2 yet for you? 

By |August 10th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, Rant|1 Comment

So it's another day and another new signing to not get too excited about. We're at T-minus four days until our season starts and it's the third day since we saw Gabriel's injury. And there's only been a sniff of 'Arsenal are thinking-about-asking-about-maybe-there-might-be-an-outside-chance-of-bidding-for' a defender who other teams even seem to be pulling out of [...]
