It seems like there apears to be some movement in the departure lounge at London Colney. Over the last 48 hours we've heard stories about Palace wanting Nketiah for £10million, Fiorentina wanting Torreira for €1.5million loan deal and €15million option to buy at the end of next season, as well as...drumroll...Corinthians wanting Willian on a [...]

Arsenal depressingly never laid a glove on Chelsea

I don't know what was worse about yesterday's defeat to Chelski; the actual defeat, or the horrible predictability of how the game would go. I thought we'd concede early. We did. I thought they'd get a second and it would kill the game. It did. I thought we'd barely be able to fashion any chances [...]

Back at The Arsenal, back with the ‘fear’ – Chelski preview

I can't say I'm overly confident about today's match if I'm completely honest with you. Aubameyang aside, this will be the same side that looked so lifeless and defensively fragile as the one that started the season against Brentford, only this time, we're playing a team that has just started the season with a comprehensive [...]

Does the COVID excuse wash for Arteta?

Martin Odegaard officially confirmed yesterday, Aaron Ramsdale also confirmed and with that, they instantly get my full backing and hope that we succeed with them in the short, medium and long term. We can all have questions over the signings but now they are here you have to be happy that they are and I [...]

Has Arteta’s fan credit slipped away?

Well in terms of football, that weekend was about as atrocious an depressing as any Arsenal fan could have imagined, wasn't it? I mean, we didn't even get the peace and excitement of a Friday before the match before it was all ruined, after a poor performance from those Arsenal players and the same familiar [...]

Arteta needs a strong start

Match-day! Whoop! After gawd knows how long, we finally have a game with a full house of fans and even though I’m on a stag weekend in Edinburgh and none of the gents are football fans, there’s no way I won’t be watching tonight’s game from my phone. It’s an irritating one because Brentford is [...]

Season preview: Not enough chaos theory at Arsenal

Just when everyone thought it was getting 'really' serious, as quickly as the Ramsdale rumours started 'hotting up', they've had some cold water poured on them as of last night, with news emerging that Arsenal were unprepared to meet the frankly farcical fee suggested by Sheffield United for Ramsdale. This is good. This is acceptable. [...]

Are Arsenal ready for the new season? Is Willock’s exit just the start?

So the two big talking points today then, are: The final televised friendly against the Scum that ended in a 1-0 defeat yesterday lunchtime The impending sale of Joe Willock First, the game itself, which was the final one in the 'Mind' series. We found ourselves on the wrong end of the result and finished [...]

Well, we're now at T-minus six days and counting and we still: Have no senior back up 'keeper to Leno who isn't a youth team player Got the right back position sorted, with Bellerin's future in the air Are staring down the barrel of a Xhaka/Elneny partnership for that first game of the season. That [...]

Must Arsenal hold their nerve in selling players?

T-minus nine days and counting (if you count today) until the kick off to the new season and, as it stands, we're looking at a VERY familiar line up to the one that led us to two consecutive eighth places over the last couple of seasons. That's not going to get too many Arsenal fans [...]
