Listen to Nacho, for he is wise

I love the optimism of some players. Well, when it comes to certain players, I might add and specifically, those who have gone from "is he good enough?" to "first name on the team sheet". Step forward Nacho Monreal. Not only has he turned out to be a pretty fine centre half, keeping other more [...]

New scout – beginning of the Arsenal legacy shift?

In the summer - early in the summer as well - Ivan talked about a 'catalyst for change' at the club and come 1st September the lack of transfer activity in core areas of the pitch - notably midfield - led many of us to feel as though we'd once again been fed spin by [...]

Arsène & players should milk the applause

Some delayed thoughts from Saturday’s North London Derby 2-0 win against Tottenham in November 2017

The nerves of the NLD – how can any fan enjoy this?

I'm sat here at my Macbook staring blankly at white space. It's North London Derby day and I've got that very familiar feeling that comes at least twice a season minimum. We play them. That lot down the road. The noisy neighbours. The chirpiest of chirpy fans. The ones that we've always said live in our [...]

Go big names tomorrow Arsène

Yesterday Arsène spoke to the assembled media to give a bit of an update on the team news and I suppose the good stuff is that nobody has been maimed enough to be sitting out that we didn’t already know about. Mustafi and Welbeck look to be back, Giroud is our, whilst the sword of [...]

Rebuild, reboot, sweep clean – get the contract rebels out of Arsenal

At this point in time can anybody say with any level of certainty what on Earth is going to happen to our two ‘big name’ stars come January? Can anybody enlighten me?  Because Arsène certainly can’t and I’m not sure he has any idea any more. His latest interview from beIN - and if you [...]

NLD – the nerves begin

Happy post Interlull day to you. At least I think it is because most of the European fixtures - playoffs and friendlies - were played yesterday and so I suspect players will be returning back to their clubs from today to get back in to training for tomorrow.  As you all know by now I [...]

Giroud – best of the Arsenal rest?

Morning folks. Welcome to Tuesday and welcome to a day in which that most emotional of people - the Italians - will be even more emotional given the fact that they’re players failed to reach the World Cup finals for the first time in a gazillion years.  I mention this only because I work with [...]

Interlull nothingness or NLD fear?

Ahh man, this feels like it’s a real dragger of an Interlull, and not just because there’s little going around by the way of Arsenal news. I tune out the transfer tittle-tattle when there’s still six weeks to go until the January window opens, and when it’s a window that doesn’t usually see big clubs [...]

Let’s go crazy 4-4-2 vintage with Ollie G up top – they’ll never see it coming

Alright? Having a good Saturday? well, as good as you can have it without The Arsenal, although these days with all the flipping Thursday night football we endure it's not normally a game day anyway, so I wonder if i'll get the usual withdrawal symptoms that I get when there is an Interlull. I'll tell [...]
