Bob McVeteran to sign for Arsenal??(disclaimer – not a real person)

By |August 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league|1 Comment

So it appears as though news is starting to trickle through the airwaves that the so-called 'madness' signing is, in fact, Antoine Griezmann. That would indeed be a fine piece of 'madness', were it to be pulled off by the club, Arsène Wenger too.  But unfortunately, as is the case with Arsenal under Arsène and [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Wales Rambo and Arsenal Rambo will never be the same thing

By |July 2nd, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Internationals, midfield, Tactics|5 Comments

Wellety, wellety, wellety, how about the Welsh team, eh? Blasting their way in to the semi-finals with an Aaron Ramsey-inspired performance, no less. I didn't watch all of the game, only sporadic intervals, but what I did see was a Belgium team that were struck by the same afflictions that plagued England and those Welshies [...]

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 [...]

‘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 [...]

Arsene’s margins are fine re: contract; players WILL come in during the summer

By |May 14th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Well then, what shall we talk about today, then? Maybe what Arsene said during his presser yesterday? Oh, alright then. Team news is that Mesut is back and after looking like he was going to smash Henry's record, he still needs two more assists just to equal it. It's not been from the want of [...]

Poor old Ox, as I think Arsene’s looking up top

By |May 7th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference, Transfers|0 Comments

Let's start today's blog by extending a little bit of sympathy to The Ox, as Arsene surprisingly confirmed yesterday that he's had a knee injury and will now be out for between six to eight weeks. From an Arsenal perspective this impacts us little; he was, after all, injured for the latter part of this [...]
