Morning folks. Hope you're all good. Poor ol' Tomi, eh? Takehiro is not on tour with the rest of the squad over the next week and a bit because of a knee problem that some of the Arsenal journo's on the beat are saying relates to his knee. It means that he'll have two-to-three weeks [...]

So the players are back in training at London Colney and we're starting to get some vids and images of them knocking the ball around, preparing for the new season, which is enough to get your average Arsenal like me quite excited about what's to come over the next ten months or so. Gabriel Jesus [...]

Just a few short days after the final and Gareth Southgate has decided to step down as England manager. And I always find the narrative in the media and on social media as quite interesting when this sort of stuff happens. Suddenly everyone is out saying what a fantastic job he did, how he did [...]

Smith Rowe could go, but do Arsenal need to watch the home grown situation?

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 [...]

It feels like the Arsenal wheels are turning – the excitement starts to build here

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 [...]

The ‘no mans land’ part of the football calendar

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…)

By |2024-07-10T08:13:27+01:00July 10th, 2024|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Internationals|0 Comments

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 [...]
