Mkhi’s ‘sad’ exit was right for the club and kids

It's still the international break and therefore there is still being football played, in which apparently England did something, but I hold it in as much importance as the next Beyoncé Knowles album. (For the avoidance of doubt, I hate Beyoncé's music) My brain is clearly desperate for its next Arsenal fix though, because last [...]

Mkhitarayn’s exit spells opportunities for youth

By |2019-09-03T09:13:01+01:00September 3rd, 2019|Arsenal Transfers, Attack, Transfers, Unai Emery, youth|0 Comments

Well I have to say well played to Raul Sanllehi once again because even though we all thought our business was done for the season both in and out, he pulled out another little surprise with the agreement that Henrikh Mkhitaryan is now a Roma player following a deadline day move. It's a move that, [...]

NLD nerves kicking in as Nacho departs

Blimey I'm tired. Plus I have a banging headache. I'm sat in a park in Manchester at 9am and my only friend right now is fresh air. It's a good friend to be honest. I will say this though; the thought of the impending North London Derby isn't helping my current situation. The fixture gives [...]

Emery’s NLD dilemmas: Monreal, front three and tactical set up

Unai's pre match presser had a wee bit of unexpected positive news yesterday, as it seems that Holding, Bellerin and Tierney might just be all back in to full training after the international break. Of course they're likely to not be ready for first team action for a few weeks, but it looks like Holding [...]

I question the timing of Monreal’s Arsenal exit

I get that Nacho Monreal is of an age where his stock is falling somewhat. I understand that we've see. A decline in his levels of reliability that we have had for so many years. It's why the club went out and got Kieran Tierney and had the Scot not been injured having recently had [...]

‘Free hits’ and good PR – everything’s ok at Arsenal at the moment

Much like Leicester against Chelski on Sunday, I found myself quietly celebrating Wolves' draw at home to Man United last night, as already those teams that you'd call 'rivals' are dropping points. However, upon reflection, the fact it was Leicester and Wolves did make me worry a little bit, because those are two teams who [...]

Joining the super agents bus – both in selling & buying

Morning friends. Football friends. Compatriots who share the same love as me: lovers of The Arsenal. It's midweek and we still might have three days to go until football returns, but the stories keep dropping relating to The Arsenal or, in this case relating to Jeff Reine-Adelaide. He should be netting Arsenal just under €3million [...]

Arsenal complete most successful transfer window of the Emirates era

Morning all and welcome to the day after the night before, in which Arsenal finished the first transfer window since I can remember where Arsenal fans are reasonably happy with the business that has been conducted all summer. Yesterday the arrivals of David Luiz and Kieran Tierney were confirmed in the afternoon and so it [...]

Just a few hours for Arsenal to get it spot on this summer

Morning all. Transfer deadline day. One of the most unsavoury days in the footballing calendar and with the English deadline day finishing at 5pm this afternoon it feels like it's going to be a busy one. Not least because of what's happened all summer. Transfers across the Premier League that are normally done without fuss [...]

Koscielny’s tarnished reputation and the expert way Arsenal dealt with it

By |2019-08-07T07:55:30+01:00August 7th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Defence, gooners, Gunners, pre season, Transfers|2 Comments

So bye-bye Koscielny as yesterday Bordeaux and Arsenal confirmed his switch to the French club after both teams agreed a few thought to be €5million. In today's market and exchange rate it's not too bad for a player who forced the clubs hands through his unprofessionalism and tantrumming by refusing to go on tour to [...]
