Some good, some less so, performances at the Emirates Cup

I don't know about you, but it's always enjoyable to see Arsenal 'do the goals' and so when you watch a tanking like we did yesterday in day one of the Emirates Cup, it's all a bit of good fun, even if it is a little meaningless. It as a pretty grim day weather-wise and [...]

Keita can be Wenger’s Gilberto

Howdy peeps, hope Wednesday is treating you well thus far, and you haven't exploded in anticipation for the showpiece trophy of the year this weekend? Yep, it's the Emirates Cup that awaits us on Saturday and Sunday and Arsène is certainly one that falls in to the 'excited anticipation' camp, if you believe what he [...]

The curious (and sad) case of Lucas Perez

It's the curious case of Lucas Perez that I want to talk about today, because it's an unusual one from an Arsenal perspective, particularly when it comes to Wenger. What's jogged me into focusing on our wantaway Spaniard is the supposed comments he's made to the club about being unhappy and wanting to go back [...]

Alexis plan B for PSG, Arsène becoming reactive

By | 2017-07-19T07:38:37+00:00 July 19th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, pre season|1 Comment

Another day, another comment on Alexis, from both media and Arsène and now it's starting to get really tedious isn't it? First up we had news that PSG were interested in the Chilean. It comes to something that as an option I felt glad when reading those stories coming out of the French press. A [...]

‘Catalyst for change’ or ‘Apathy for the same’?

I wouldn't worry too much about finding any more info here. I got nothing if I'm honest with you. I'm running out of steam with Arsenal and I'd almost forgotten what it felt like to have to stare at so much of the footballing abyss.  It's amazing really. About three months ago I couldn't wait [...]

What does Wenger have to do?

As I made my usual walk towards Uxbridge tube station this morning I started to think about Arsène and how much he has fallen from the pedestal that I put him on in my mind. I started to think about how a man who I once hoped could manage us forever, is now a guy [...]

Ollie G needs big name competition for his place

How about Ollie G and that goal last night, eh? I don't usually bother with international football, but given that one match was distilled in to two brilliant moments for Arsenal fans - a great strike from our centre forward and a total howler from the Spurs keeper, I was happy to see my Twitter timeline filled [...]

Insulting the intelligence of Arsenal fans

Well here we go then folks. We're now in to the transfer 'silly season' and no sooner is the ink beginning to dry on the contract of Arsène's new deal, than we're getting snippets of information to get fans all worked up and excitable that we're 'going big' this year. It was L'Equipe yesterday evening [...]

Floating debris season, so transfer guff is becoming interesting

I want to say 'no real favours done for us again' on yesterday's results, but the reality is that we didn't really have an team around us to be too concerned with right now. City are disappearing off in to the difference, the scummy lot round the corner have already gone, whilst Liverpool and United [...]

Arsenal + Alexis = cash, Arsenal + Arsène = rented season tickets

Happy Easter Saturday. I spent my Good Friday playing Monopoly with no beer, rum or wine, so I am certainly ready for a little tipple later. And on Sunday. And most definitely on Monday, the day in which Arsenal are at Middlesbrough, who everyone is saying won't give us any problems on their own patch. [...]
