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.

I’m liking Odsonne Edouard links to The Arsenal

I don't usually like to get myself involved too heavily on transfer-related stuff - especially in March - but given that this isn't really a 'real' March, in a footballing sense, I thought I'd indulge my curiosity for a change and have a look at NewsNow this morning to see how Odsonne Edouard is linked [...]

Morning folks. Well, here you have it, it's a lockdown in the UK which means no more going outside at all unless you're exercising. I have a supermarket - a big one - opposite me and already this morning I've seen people queuing to get themselves inside the store to buy their essentials. Strap yourselves [...]

Seeking advice from my Dani Ceballos wall calendar

I'm on day three of my 'work from home' lockdown and today's mission was to go to Sainsbury's over the road and buy two anti-bacterial soaps. We have just run out in our en-suite and there's another running low and unlike so many knobs out there, I'm not contributing to the panic that has set [...]

Can stopping the Premier League season prep us all for Qatar 2022?

Morning folks. Hope you and your families are well. On Sunday I got up and flicked on the TV to see what's knocking about that isn't talking about Covid-19 and, sadly, it was all about Covid-19. My default channel on my TV downstairs is Sky Sports and they had Sunday Supplement on and the chaps who joined [...]

Season delay will cause introspection, but Arsenal will get their fullbacks back

So, we have ourselves an enforced two week hiatus from The Arsenal, as yesterday the Premier League confirmed that the league will shut down until 4th April. It’s an admission of just how serious the Coronavirus is from a contagious point of view and I don’t think there are many people out there who would [...]

The footballing world needs to shut down after Arteta contracts Covid-19

Morning folks, brought to you today from the office in my house, as my business took the pre-emptive measure yesterday to have everybody home-based for the foreseeable future. It makes sense, but having worked in London for many years and being in the office yesterday, I can tell you that there was not a lot [...]
