A chance for everyone under Emery?

It's a week to go and although I'll get into the World Cup when it comes around, it's hard to get too excited about this round of friendlies, especially when they are a right royal pain in my arse when it comes to my journey home. I take the Met Line from Moorgate to Uxbridge [...]

Arsenal PR playing a blinder as whole country is named an Arsenal player

So far the Arsenal PR and comms team are having a decent fist of this summer, what with the Emery arrival followed up yesterday by Lichtsteiner joining on a free. In an age of humans so ravenous for content, content, content, they've played this summer well so far. Just at the point at which the [...]

Sokratis Senior spills the beans

So it looks like 'Mr Socko' (little WWF reference for all you old school wrestling fans) is on his way to The Arsenal after his father...erm...Passthepoddodomolous Senior...said on a Greek radio station that it'll happen tomorrow. Which I can now confirm is officially today. It's one of those moves where Sokratis himself will probably be [...]

Can Emery afford to experiment with Iwobi in the middle?

I'd like to tell you that I watched last nights game between Real Madrid Legends and Arsenal Legends, that I am a die-hard fan that wouldn't have missed it for the world but in reality, it wasn't for me and so I celebrated my Dad's birthday in a Beefeater instead. I don't know what it [...]

Xhaka’s Swiss deployment intrigues me

Morning folks. I tell you what, my back is killing me. Never had this before. Lower back pain. Managed to get through 35 years on this earth without anything such as a twinge, but for three days i've been waking up feeling like I'm in my 80s. Now I know how About DIaby must feel [...]

Is it the Arsenal players that are the problem?

Bit of a provocative blog title today, I know, but it's something I've been thinking of for a while since the Emery appointment was announced. We've spent years being led to believe that it's Arsène's laissez-faire attitude to team structure, to specific and detailed instructions, that have been an issue for these players. We knew [...]

With Sokratis the defensive questions still remain

Flipping heck it's muggy today. So muggy I want to sack off work, get into my swim shorts and convince the wife to fan me as I watch re-runs of the Invincibles season. British people aren't used to this kind of weather. Three piece suits aren't designed for this. As for Arsenal fans, we're also [...]

Rambo and Huss have a date; Sven and Ousmane too?

Well it seems Rambo is getting the positive vibes following the appointment of our new man Emery. He's been talking after a pointless game for Wales in the US against Mexico and said he 'can't wait' to get back to Arsenal to see how this exciting new era starts. We all feel the same Aaron. [...]

Sokratis hardly inspires, but we hope for a plan

Morning folks. It was a bank holiday yesterday in the UK and as a result I simply couldn't be arsed to drag my sorry carcass out of bed to write a blog. But also there was a dearth of news that is available on Arsenal and so I just figured 'meh'. Then yesterday afternoon I [...]

Bit of Schadenfreude on a Sunday morn, plus the excitement of a high press

This will probably be a short one today because there's little going on in the Arsenal world. Hopefully this is because Unai is already in a darkened room trying frantically to work out how the heck he's going to turn Shokdran into a world class defender and how he's going to help Iwobi to learn [...]
