An insight into players minds and squad numbers

By |May 27th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, midfield|0 Comments

Mourinho, at Man United, possibly with Zlatan joining him. The evil knows no bounds and I think I speak for every non-United fan when I say: please let this be the most epic and catastrophic failure in the history of football. It would be hilarious. As for Arsenal, it appears the club are drip-feeding the [...]

Xhaka on board – kudos to the club

By |May 26th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, midfield|1 Comment

So after a week of talking about it amongst the fans, the worst kept transfer secret was announced yesterday, with the club Twitter feed clearly making light of it by saying "ok, we'll announce Xhaka", which I have to applaud I must say. I'm sure it was a little bit irritating for the club to [...]

Is the ‘change’ at Arsenal starting to happen?

By |May 25th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, contracts, gooners, Gunners, History|2 Comments

With the story of Mourinho still dominating the press pages (he would want it no other way), there is little else that the nationals are interested in, so they've put down their rainbow coloured invention pens, focusing on the North for now. I hope that it is the same for the rest of next season. [...]

‘Say nice things about Rosicky’ Week

By |May 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, injuries|0 Comments

Has there ever been a more obvious potential 'Axis of Evil' than Jose Mourinho and Man United? A team who have had success for decades, who have also built up a cynical side and who's corporate juggernaut status and commercial emphasis, with the Jack the Ripper of modern day football?  So it seems that may [...]

Jack’s the right gamble Noble could never be

With the domestic football season now winding down to its conclusion, we're left with just the scraps of international friendlies to spend our time talking about, which is never ideal.  On Saturday I went for a nine mile hike across Box Hill in Surrey and I spent a bit of time with a Chelski fan [...]

New signings, new kits, but same old punditry

By |May 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, History|0 Comments

So, Xhaka in an Arsenal kit, eh? Imagine if both clubs suddenly stumbled on an agreement and the deal broke through now? I think some people might just be finding some tall ledges to walk off. Every Arsenal Tweet for the last few days has been responded to by an Arsenal fan saying "Announce Xhaka FFS", [...]

Mapping out the perfect summer, starting with Xhaka and Mesut

By |May 21st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, premier league|0 Comments

So it seems the wheels are properly in motion for Granit Xhaka to be joining the club, after multiple outlets confirmed his impending arrival for a medical, with the most reliable David Ornstein going as far as to say it's on the verge of completion. This is good moves by the club and by Arsene. [...]

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 [...]

History vs trophies vs money

By |May 19th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, History, premier league|1 Comment

Yesterday Scouse dreams ended when they came up against a very good Sevilla side who have come up with a formula for winning the Europa League, and quickly frankly, they're good at it. I have no major beef with Liverpool fans. I know a few southern Scouse wannabes though, most of whom are quite unbearable [...]
