Willian could mean a formation change for Arsenal, but Zaha and Partey might not be in it

Howdy y'all and welcome to another post season Monday, although Mother Nature has seen fit to deliver what feels like holiday weather in the UK, without the holiday to go with it unfortunately. You'll never here me complaining though - I love the warmth and would gladly have it like this every day of the [...]

Torreira wants out as Willian and Coutinho are on the horizon

By |2020-08-08T07:47:46+01:00August 8th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|3 Comments

Howdy folks. Right, plenty to talk about today, so let’s get at it, starting with Willian who was apparently ‘done’ on Monday and now we’re obviously just waiting on official confirmation from the club and player and I suspect that might happen tomorrow or Monday depending on the Chelski result in the Champions League tonight [...]

The ‘Ainsley or cash’ conundrum Arsenal and Arteta face

Morning folks and welcome to another Friday. I was going to say 'Lockdown Friday' but I don't think we're still in Lockdown, are we? I don't know exactly when it changed, it seemed to seep into whatever this hybrid between Lockdown and normality is, but anyway, happy 'Whatever it is' to you and your kin. [...]

I see Willian logic, but I’m not 100% behind it

Morning folks and welcome to another post-FA Cup final victory day. It really is rather blissful and I think i'm going to see if I can continue to ride the crest of this particular wave for as long as possible. If it can take me well into the weekend then that'd be just grand. There's [...]

The FA Cup win as the positive ‘sliding door’ moment we needed

By |2020-08-03T08:01:04+01:00August 3rd, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Europa League, FA Cup, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

I spent intermittent moments of yesterday just smiling to myself. If the Cup final of 2019 cut deep and was a wound that took long to heal, this weekend's victory in the FA Cup helped to stitch up some of that wound. It was like the lollipop you got at the doctors when you were [...]

Arteta, Auba and Arsenal mastermind an FA Cup win

This is going to be a fun blog to write today, because The Arsenal, we won the bloody cup! I am a happy man. Last season I felt broken after that Europa League final. It really hit me hard and had knock in effects this season, even affecting my ability to become optimistic and hopeful [...]

Arteta is our optimisim, when in reality there could be little

By |2020-07-28T07:45:57+01:00July 28th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, FA Cup, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

Why do I feel like this might be a long week? Last night Ben, Steve and I recorded our penultimate 'Suburbs' podcast on GunnersTown and aside from the fact that we were all nervously laughing about how bad we were against Watford and Villa, the fact that an FA Cup Final looms on the horizon [...]

Arteta impresses again, but admits to some challenges, amidst uncertainty

Plenty to get through today, after Arteta had his press conference ahead of Sunday’s dead rubber, the Premier League fixtures for next season were confirmed, as well as the disappointing news that Mustafi will miss the cup final due to the injury he picked up in the Semi Final last week. You really have to [...]

Can Smith-Rowe fill Arsenal’s creative void alone?

Morning all and happy Friday to you. Not long now and we can stick a collective two fingers up to this disaster of a Premier League season. Can't wait. I don't really want to look ahead too much at the Watford game because, frankly, it is of little consequence to me. So last night and [...]

Kids against Watford, Arsenal against Antony Taylor and ‘no thanks’ for Coutinho

By |2020-07-23T07:57:02+01:00July 23rd, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, FA Cup, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Transfers|0 Comments

There's a couple of things on my mind this morning, as this season finally drags it's sorry arse into closing, thank gawd, which I think is a sentiment all Arsenal fans can get behind. The kids against Watford? In my mind this is an obvious 'yes', but I am a child of the 80s and [...]
