A match day blog. How about that then. I've almost forgotten what one of those looks like. But here we are a mere 12 or so hours away from the resumption of this Premier League season and even though we're playing City, even though we're probably losing tonight, I'm still excited. My expectations have been [...]

Arteta’s presser shows us a statesman

Hold the phone, we have ourselves a press conference, which means football has never felt closer! And I'm giddy like a little schoolchild. So perhaps I should take some time to hold my hands up and admit that I didn't think I'd feel this excited when the lockdown and postponement was of the Premier League [...]

Don’t lose your sh*t over a friendly fitness exercise defeat to Brentford

So it turns out there was a bit of football played again yesterday, as we entertained Brentford at an empty Emirates bowl and unfortunately lost 3-2, with the Bees bagging a goal in the last couple of minutes to see off the game. It was all a bit cloak and dagger until the last minute, [...]

what could have been at Arsenal and what unfortunately has been – transfer thoughts

Well now, they've finally lost it at the Premier League and in trying to pump in crowd noise via the red button when the season restarts, we're going to have come to the last desperate grabs by the broadcasters to protect their 'product'. Selfishly I hope it bombs. That's because I'm one of the people [...]

Torreira’s agent talking, but are we talking to Saka?

Morning folks, hope all is good with you, on this Saturday which should have been the end of the season. Except, as we all know, it is far from the end of the season. We still have another ten games to play and the Premier League met this week to work out what the next [...]

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

By |2020-03-13T08:06:30+00:00March 13th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

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 [...]

Arteta’s impressive presser breathes hope for City away

As we all suspected it was a press conference day yesterday and, whilst I still don’t think we’ll be getting anything from the game on Wednesday night, Arteta’s convictions and the way he articulated himself in the press conference, had me thinking that maybe...just maybe...he has some kind of blueprint for success. It’s unlikely because [...]

Auba’s contract length was wrong; why signing Willian doesn’t make sense

If Saturday’s results - including The Arsenal’s - were a positive day for us, then yesterday’s were the opposite, as Everton rolled over and let Chelski blow raspberries on their bellies, whilst Man City played the possession-based game of how to be toothless against A United side who had their number early on in the [...]
