Cheeky little bidding war for Xhaka, perhaps?

When it comes to selling players, there's one thing everyone loves: A BIDDING WAR! So waking up this morning to noises that Bayern - and maybe even Dortmund - have sat up and taken a bit of notice of the fact that Granit Xhaka is available, is music to mine ears, that's for sure. I'm [...]

A horrible kit and a change of tactical versatility for The Arsenal?

Happy Saturday gooners, hope all is well in your respective worlds? As you'd expect it's a quiet one in the Arsenal universe, with the English footballing eyes all on United versus City today. Personally I'm not sure I'll bother watching; it's a cup final between two teams that I don't like very much, so why [...]

When do you get bored of the transfer ‘exclusives’?

Morning folks and welcome to Friday. It's the first footballess Friday of the summer and I'm still in that weird zone whereby the old season is sill fresh in my mind, so I'm still in a "kind of ready for the summer and a bit of a rest from the stress of watching" vibe. It [...]

'Tis the season to be...... ....Worried about every single transfer rumour that gets banded about, apparently, and I am by no means an exception it seems. For yesterday in the morning - after I'd written my daily musings on here first thing, a story emerged about how Arsenal could be resigned to losing Saliba this [...]

Smith Rowe is a no-go

When David Ornstein dropped his latest Ornbomb (see below) about how Arsenal had no intention of selling Emile Smith Rowe this summer, there were a fair few members of the online community that I follow who expressed a wee bit of surprise. Positive surprise, but surprise nonetheless. He's a popular player, he's one of our [...]

Some Rice chatter and a reflection of the season (of sorts)

The trouble with a bank holiday, especially when the weather has been nice, is that it makes it that little bit harder to get yourself up for going to work. I mean yeah, it's useful that the working week is shorter, but still it's a little frustrating that you have to go back in to [...]

The fitting send off as Arsenal smash Wolves

In yesterday's blog I wrote about how I wanted Arsenal to lay down a marker in anticipation for next season. I referenced the first win of the Invincibles run, which was an end of season 6-1 hammering of Southampton and I said that I hoped that the lads would go out there and deliver a [...]

Make this Wolves game the start of something special for next season

Here we are folks - the final match day of the 2022/23 season. The expectations pivoted at some point from 'just get the Champions League spot' to 'become champions' and as such, today feels like a slightly sadder day than I was hoping it would be. But it is going to be a gloriously sunny [...]

Arteta drops some impressive hints in his last presser of the season

So the final press conference of the season was done yesterday, coinciding with the launch of the new home kit for next season, in which the club released a bunch of new social media and press about it to generate plenty of online chatter. On the kit, personally, I might give it a miss next [...]
