Usmanov’s Everton investment casts more shadows on KSE

I guess you can't really call it Arsenal news, but given that Alisher Usmanov was a shareholder at Arsenal until recently, it has a bit of Arsenal related to it, and certainly I think it has implications for the Premier League. Because Everton confirmed last night that Usmanov has invested £30million in naming rights for [...]

Auba missing gives a dry run for next season’s Arsenal

So I see plenty of noise about Sergio Aguero and his scoring record on my Twitter timeline at the moment. The man has just surpassed Thierry Henry in terms of Premier League goals to become the highest overseas goal scorer. Quite a feat indeed and he deserves the praise being afforded to him. But don't [...]

I believe Arteta and his ‘like a new signing’ rhetoric

Morning folks - happy Friday n'all that jazz. Right, let's get down to it, because it was press conference Thursday yesterday and he addressed the assembled media. The good news is that the first thing he said was that he's given a few more ideas to the players following a first full week of training [...]

The importance of that Edu/Arteta relationship is massive

Morning friends and happy Saturday to you. It's an FA Cup weekend and in my opinion it's the best FA Cup weekend - cup final day aside if you're in it - of all of the round. It's the one in which all the Premier League teams feature, there's a shedload of games going on, [...]

Players edging for the Arsenal exit

It's the international break and although we all needed some time away from the tripe that Arsenal have been serving us up of late, these periods of time are still boring as hell, it has to be said. Step forward Bellerin's agent to spice it up a bit, eh? Or Torreira's people clearly giving briefings [...]

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

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 [...]
