The kids impress against Fiorentina, but so do some of the senior players

So it appears as though this summer is going well from a results perspective, eh? A 3-0 victory against Fiorentina, another 'W' on the board and some encouraging performances from some players, I have to say. Take Saka, for example, who looked good in small flashes last season but really impressed in yesterday's game. He [...]

Saliba sorted, but the Sven situation doesn’t add up

Howdy all and welcome to another ore season Saturday and it's a Saturday in which I'm sure you've already seen yourselves, but we appear to finally got the Saliba deal over the line, so all that remains to be seen is for us to announce it. I suspect it'll be a low-key affair. After all [...]

I really WANT Özil to come good and here’s why you should too

Morning all. Now, I know that for some people today's blog topic will be divisive and before even reading a single sentence there will be people slagging me off on social media, purely because of the headline and not because of what I'm about to say, because that's how social media works. People won't read [...]

Great that Arsenal talk to us, but action is needed now, not words

So we have a shiny new away kit to salivate over I see? It's a shame we don't have any new signings to be featured in them. Had we done what we were supposed to be doing this summer, had we done what was said in March from Sanllehi about having been speaking to people [...]

One month on: Starting to lose my sh*t with Arsenal

About a month ago I think I wrote a piece which said something broadly along the lines of "it's only June people, we don't need to lose our collective sh*t just yet". We were just a few weeks after the Europa League Final, it appeared as though there were a few targets who were being [...]

Koscielny’s actions show how much of a mess we’re in

Arsenal feels like an absolute hot mess at the moment, doesn't it? We've had a quiet and pretty lacklustre summer - as usual - and the club seems to be messing up transfers left, right and centre, but to add insult to injury we also have players actively pushing to jump ship. Yesterday's announcement by [...]

Edu arrives, but don’t expect miracles, especially under a Kroenke regime

So we finally have confirmation that a new technical director has joined the club and in Edu, we have a former invincible squad member who joins us to try to get us moving in the right direction. Raul Sanllehi has called it the 'final jigsaw' piece that the clubs senior back room staff need to [...]

Saliba deal surely means we take another look at Bielik or Chambers?

So it appears the William Saliba deal from St Etienne is reaching its final conclusions and I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say "thank gawd". It's dragged on far too much with St Etienne insistent on that loan for an additional season. That's an interesting one I have to say from [...]
