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 [...]

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", [...]

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 [...]

Is Arsène asking himself the right questions?

By |May 13th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference|4 Comments

Yesterday afternoon Arsène spoke about how everyone at the club is devastated that Danny Welbeck has picked up this second injury. You'd expect him to say something like that and as I lamented yesterday, I too won't dwell on what has been a terrible injury at a time in which his importance to the team was obvious [...]

Action needed after Welbeck news

By |May 12th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, injuries, premier league|0 Comments

Poor old Danny Welbeck. From regularly available, fully fit Man United player, to crocked and barely on the pitch Arsenal player. It seems the injury curse of wearing the cannon on your shirt has struck again.  Nine months. Jeez. I'm sure you're feeling as deflated as I am, but that will be nowhere near as [...]

What difference does Arsenal’s league position make?

By |May 11th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, premier league, Rant|1 Comment

I don't seem to recall there being as much build up to the last game at Highbury, as there was yesterday, when West Ham bottled United off the pitch and United bottled it on it. And yes, i know  that there's probably a billion othe people who have used that one, but I don't regret [...]

City preview: tough to call which sides will bother turning up

By |May 8th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Matchday 37 and we're nearly at the end folks. We need just one more win to secure fourth and a win and a draw today to secure third. That would be much more preferable from a planning point of view for next season, as Arsene has already talked about in Friday's presser, but in reality [...]
