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.

Morning folks and welcome to another week. It's a busy one for the Arsenal this week, as we face off against both Leicester and Liverpool away from home in both League Cup and Premier League, so there'll be plenty to chew over in the coming days. But not only that, it also feels like the [...]

West Ham preview: excitement over Arteta’s selection headaches

Matchday! Get in! These are some of the best ones of the season for me because: 1. There’s still the excitement of how this season is going to pan out. 2. You haven’t been fatigued by the volume of games, often made worse if Arsenal are terrible, or the season has deflated like an old [...]

Aubameyang will have the same legacy as Ian Wright

By |2020-09-16T08:00:01+01:00September 16th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, contracts, gooners, Gunners, History, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

The cat is finally out of the bag and I don't know about you, but I for one am glad, because it was all starting to drag on a bit. Aubameyang has committed his future to The Arsenal for the next three years. And I don't think there's a proper gooner out there who isn't [...]

Movement at Arsenal? Runarsson, Martinez, Torreira and Holding

So here we are, Tuesday the 15th September, halfway through this ninth month of the year, and STILL no signing confirmation of Aubameyang. We've even had Wrighty speak to Pap Aubameyang to get his son to sign. It's all becoming a bit silly now, isn't it? I mean the whole world seems to acknowledge that [...]

Martinez gone, but that’s just a small slice of the income we need

By |2020-09-14T07:19:12+01:00September 14th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, finances, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Transfers|1 Comment

So it appears the Emi Martinez situation has come to a conclusion last night with pretty much every news outlet now reporting that the deal has been done and he's joined Aston Villa for around £20million. I say ' around' because whilst most are reporting it at £20million, Sky Sports were talking it up as [...]

Fulham away: Up an underway with Arsenal’s new style

By |2020-09-13T10:04:10+01:00September 13th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, Formation, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

The season is underway and it is underway with three points and three goals from The Arsenal, without reply from Fulham at Craven Cottage, which makes for a lovely Sunday today in the English late summer sun. There’s something exciting brewing under Mikel Arteta and we are seeing that every week little by little. And [...]

Arsenal must silence potential Mitrovic/Knockheart partnership today

Iiiiiiiiiiit's MATCHDAY! Yep, I'm excited, despite all of my cynicism about the Project Restart, despite the fact we still don't quite have the balance right in midfield (as Mikel alluded to in his press conference yesterday), as well as the fact that we have a mountain of injuries already. I'm still so excited to see [...]

Arsenal all in on Arteta, but not Martinez, who looks out

By |2020-09-11T08:26:57+01:00September 11th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, contracts, Defence, Mikel Arteta, Transfers|1 Comment

Happy Friday y'all. What a prospect it appears it might be! First and foremost, I'm looking forward to hearing from our new first team manager! Yep, as you've probably already read to, the club announced a change in job title for MIkel Arteta and he's moving from first team Head Coach to first team manager, [...]
