You can tell it's getting closer to the start of a new season because last night I had a dream about Arsenal. There was a mix up at Premier League HQ and we needed up playing West Ham at home on the first game of the season. They didn't tell anybody though and so nobody [...]

Silly goals conceded against Barca; deja vu defending shows signings needed

Final pre season friendly out of the way and, as probably is to be expected, we went to the Nou Camp and came back with a defeat. It's a familiar thing that we've seen before so there won't be too many surprises with that and hey, I've spent all summer saying that the results from [...]

Arsenal need to ship out before they bring in and Coutinho shouldn’t be one that comes in

So we have our first bit of significant cash coming in as Krystian Bielik becomes a Derby player for around £10million, as well as Takuma Asano heading off to Partizan Belgrade for £1million, meaning that we made a £2.5million loss on a player who essentially went out on loan for the whole of his Arsenal [...]

Arsenal’s statement of intent now needs execution on the pitch

Well it finally happened yesterday and despite the fact I'd been lamenting all transfers, how they weren't a surprise and how numb I feel like I'd got in the whole process, I still gorged myself on the glorious glorious content that the club put out throughout the day. I can't help myself. I must also [...]

Stuttering youth performance against Angers

So we have ourselves enough leaked news and people (like the Lille chairman) talking about Nicolas Pepe's move to The Arsenal, that we know it's happening, we just haven't had it confirmed yet. No doubt the game against Angers was an overriding factor in the announcement not happening. Arsenal had enough stuff to talk about [...]

Pepe’s old news by now, but what about our back line movements?

When it comes to the exciting Nicolas Pepe story, we've had it all now, haven't we? Yesterday he was pictured in an Arsenal shirt as leaked footage emerged of him tapping the shirt and with that we know something will happen today officially but, as is the way of the modern social media world, it [...]

Pepe edges closer, Mustafi edges further away, but defence questions remain

So we're edging closer towards the Pepe signing as - if rumours are to be believed - he's due for a medical at some stage either today or tomorrow and despite the fact that nothing is secret any more and so we all know chapter and verse about this deal, I'm still excited, and I [...]

Some positives from youth but that Arsenal back line terrifies me

So we had the Emirates Cup yesterday in which Lyon eventually beating us from coming two goals behind (one of which looking like it certainly had more than a whiff of offside about it) and as a result there were a few Gooners who sadly couldn't see a victory on home soil before the important [...]

What’s going on at right back for Arsenal?

By |2019-07-28T11:33:03+01:00July 28th, 2019|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Defence, pre season, Tactics, Unai Emery|5 Comments

So we have a Sunday morning in which there's an Emirates Cup on the horizon later on this afternoon and probably a little more Pepe chatter until something breaks like a 'spotted at Arsenal' or 'medical set for x date' or something similar. After my later post yesterday there was some noises about PSG possibly [...]
