About Bendtnersbettercousin

Gooner born in 1982 from Harlow, Essex, with a love for Arsenal that knows. I'm not an AKb, nor am I an 'In Arsene we Rust', but I like to think that I can tip-toe between the two, occasionally veering into both camps.

Auba’s message is as confusing as ever, but Arsenal’s financial situation is more so

This morning I logged on to my Arsenal online account on the official website and asked for my cashback refund on my season ticket today. It gave me an odd sense of sadness and guilt for some reason. I think that's because in the back of my mind I was thinking about the thousands of [...]

Luiz numbers are scary, but does Kia still want more of the Arsenal cake?

Morning all and welcome to another lockdown Monday. There's one thing I do kind of like about the working from home part of lockdown instead of being on a tube hurtling towards the city, which is that I can wear pretty much what I like, so my suits haven't seen the light of day for [...]

A touch of the Cohen Bramall’s on Arsenal’s new signing

Morning peeps, hope you’re holding up well, as always. Another week has passed us by and here we are for another Saturday, sans The Arsenal, but at least we have each other, am I right? We also have the odd bit of slim pickings to choose from on an Arsenal news front. My Twitter feed [...]

Luiz one of a few sad goodbyes this summer?

With the Premier League voting unanimously that players can finally touch each other yesterday, it looks like we're nearing the continuation of the mind-numbingly tedious situation that is the conclusion of  this pointless season of Premier League football and I'll be honest with you, I just want it all over with so the sooner they [...]

This time three years ago…

This time three years ago I had just woken up. The weather report said it was going to be a glorious day and the sun was starting to poke through the blackout blinds of my Velux windows in mine and the Management's bedroom. I'd gone to bed a little later than a usual school night [...]

No money at Arsenal and swap deals are even less likely

Morning folks and happy Sunday to thee. If you're reading this in the UK then it's a bank holiday tomorrow, which turns today into a sort of pseud-Saturday, which is always lovely. Think we're due to get a bit of sunshine too, so hopefully I'll be able to sit out in the garden and slowly [...]

Aubameyang to PSG has me going all amateur accountant

I feel a bit dirty this morning. Not physically dirty, but mentally dirty, because I went on the hunt for some Arsenal content this morning and started clicking on transfer-related links from the click baitey gutter press. It was pretty, it wasn't fun, I didn't enjoy it and so the foray into the murky world [...]

Arsenal to pick up some freebies in the summer?

So we have now seen pictures of the players returning to training this week and what have we learned? Very little of course. Because it's training. And you only get the occasional still. I do think all of the Premier League clubs should start broadcasting video content of the training. You know, so we can [...]
