Morning folks and welcome to Tuesday, where the whirring of the transfer window appears to be up and running already, it seems. Last night it was Emile Smith Rowe's turn to be thrust into the spotlight, as Sky Sports ran with a story that Fulham and Palace are both interested in his signature. That's probably [...]

So the wheels seem to be in motion. Well, they've been in motion for a while on the players who are on the verge of exits - Sambi and Nuno - but this will be another sale by the club and I guess ultimately it all adds up. Sambi is off on a loan which [...]

Ahh man, there really is bugger all on today from a football perspective, that's for sure, with the Euro's final not on until Sunday, The Arsenal not on for a few weeks on from that, plus the only real transfer news going on is stuff we've already been privy too, like Lokonga, Calafiore and Tavares. [...]

England surprise, but so do Arsenal, as Tavares deal looks a good one

Well, I have to say, I didn't expect that last night that's for sure. For year's I've been able to fall on my German family heritage as an excuse when it comes to having some skin in the game in the latter stages of international tournaments, but last night England completed their second back-to-back final [...]

Spain are the *chefs kiss* of the Euro’s (not Rodri or Cucurella though…)

That was a captivating semi final yesterday between France and Spain, I thought, with the French going ahead and the Spanish showing why they will eventually win this tournament, I think. Going in to the game I probably edged towards France because I think, ultimately, out of the two teams on the other side of [...]

Morning folks, we all good? Well, as good as we can be given there's no football on at the moment and The Arsenal are still a solid six week's away until the proper stuff starts to kick in. I thought about going along to one of the friendlies we've got penned in for the beginning [...]

Starboy Saka saves England – and no Arsenal fan is surprised

Sometimes - but very rarely - I write the title of the blog before I've even jotted a word down on the page to compile my daily thoughts. Today is one of those days for sure. Bukayo Saka showed why he is England's best player last night. Bukayo Saka showed why Gareth Southgate appeasing Phil [...]

Merino’s added an extra few mil to his price tag

I watched both the quarter finals yesterday and with my feet firmly planted in the "I have German family" camp, I decided to get behind Der Mannschaft and cheer them on against Spain. My English blood has cursed my German family. They played decent enough, but as my cousin Dave said (he also taps in to [...]
