Is Freddie’s promotion a warning shot to Unai?

Morning folks and happy Friday unto thee. We have some news amongst the barren wasteland of post season silence, although as much as many people online wanted it to be some sort of magical work of fiction and Kroenke was leaving the club and throwing his shares out of the plane over the Emirates as [...]

Here’s why Auba isn’t going to China and Xhaka isn’t going to Inter

Morning Gooners. Provocative headline I know, but given some of the rumours that have circulated over the last 24 hours I thought I'd wade in with my opinion as to why I cannot see either Granit Xhaka or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joining the respective clubs they've been linked with by the gutter press. Let's start first [...]

Arsenal summer transfer season: here we go

The unsavoury part of the footballing calendar has begun: transfer season. Here we go again folks. Here we go with the attention seekers, looking to provide a 'scoop' simply by making things up from their mobiles on public transport somewhere. Here we go with the fighting amongst Twitter accounts as people label other people as [...]

Arsenal aren’t bringing enjoyment any more

This last few days has been some of the longest times I've not blogged since I started this website up around ten years ago. I don't tend to do it too much when I'm on holiday, usually because I'm hanging and not waking up until after 10, but this time around there is no such [...]

Preparation and incentive: What Arsenal need to do to win on Wednesday night

Happy Bank Holiday Sunday to those of you in the UK, enjoying the extra day off tomorrow, which means we can all have an extra cheeky beverage or two this afternoon and then take a bit of a lie in for the morning too. I wonder what the Arsenal players will be doing today. It's [...]

Who should we get for £40million?

With the possibility looking that there's a paltry budget for Unai and the transfer team to play with, I thought I'd have a little think about who we could potentially get for the little amount of cash we're willing to part with this summer. That transfer kitty won't stretch very far as we all know, [...]

Unai to get it right tactically in another big game?

It's a bit of a weird time right now. I'm fighting hard to resist the urge to start having a bit of a deconstruction of this season because it all feels like it's swinging on the pendulum of the Europa League cup final. Win it and we have ourselves a trophy, a spot in the [...]

Arsenal need an away goal and no defensive brain farts against Valencia

I hope that this morning when you woke up you hugged your children a little bit tighter than you usually do. Because unless Arsenal progress this evening against a Valencia side who fancy their chances up against our awful defence, then we're in a whole world of trouble, of biblical proportions. Last night's result means [...]

Arsenal’s lack of athleticism causing this slump?

Looks like it's time to start booking in those caves in remote far-flung destinations of the word because if the Totts beat Ajax to the final tonight then it won't be a final I'll be wanting to watch or know the result of. I'm already on a personal social media lockdown after last night's capitulation [...]
