It all feels very efficient at Arsenal at the moment, doesn't it? I mean, it's almost as if we've known our weaknesses, known where we are in the pecking order, known who will improve us, so now we're going out and getting them. It's refreshing. The plan appears clear and yesterday whilst we were unable [...]

Arsenal are shopping at a level down, but there is a plan, at least

Sometimes it's comforting to know that things don't always change. I'll be honest with you; after Germany lost to Mexico in their opening group game at the weekend for the first time in like a billion years, then England had a first half in which they played brilliantly by-and-large, I thought we must have been [...]

The World Cup is now we'll and truly underway and despite the fact I've only really watched bits and pieces so far - because of a busy weekend for me in the real world - there's already been plenty to talk about and that's certainly a good thing. On Friday night I watched the second [...]

The pros and cons of Arsenal’s hard Premier League start

In this past week I've talked about the importance of momentum, about how when we've even been anywhere near the top of the league at any stage, it's been because we've had a good start to the season and that has carried through until at least the midway point. Yesterday I talked about it being [...]

Big day for Unai; Calum to Fulham?

Today is quite a big day in Unai Emery's Arsenal career, if you think about it, because in just over an hours time from me penning today's thoughts the Premier League fixtures will be out and we'll know whether he has been granted an opportunity to play a series of 'winnable' games or whether he's [...]

Morning all, Last night I was on LoveSport Radio talking about the World Cup and a bit of The Arsenal with Giles and Dave talking about the World Cup, country and western music and everything in between and as appears to be becoming a habit when we go on these shows, David Ornstein dropped another [...]

Torreira deal moving at London traffic pace

Alrighty folks? How goeth it? Mighty fine? Or 'meh'? The lack of Arsenal news is a little 'meh'. Well, concrete Arsenal news that is. The main rumour rumblings appear to be Torreira from Sampdoria but in an effort to be seen as the leading light of insight on this deal, you've got outlets like Di [...]

World Cup week is upon us and that means we have something else we'll be able to talk about for a whole month, enabling us to detach ourselves from the drivel that cones from the click-bait nonsense that the media want to serve up to us like the ad revenue hungry so-and-so's that they are. [...]

Yesterday my blog featured a few words and a picture of Joel Campbell, speculating that it's a clean slate for many and that players like Joel might think they have a chance with the new man at the helm, but having watched him in bits and pieces of yesterday's Costa Rica game against England I [...]

Arsenal PR playing a blinder as whole country is named an Arsenal player

So far the Arsenal PR and comms team are having a decent fist of this summer, what with the Emery arrival followed up yesterday by Lichtsteiner joining on a free. In an age of humans so ravenous for content, content, content, they've played this summer well so far. Just at the point at which the [...]
