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 [...]

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?

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 [...]

Deals done, but opportunities missed at Q&A?

Morning folks. You know how they say "slow news day?" When there's the square root of b*gger all going on I. The Arsenal world? Well, I think it's safe to say that yesterday was not one of those days! First we had the confirmation of Ceballos and Saliba from the club and with it cake [...]

Questions to be asked at Arsenal fan Q&A, which won’t be solved by signing announcements today

Today there is a fan Q & A at The Emirates in which Raul Sanllehi and a few other Arsenal representatives will sit in front of a selection of fans to discuss the recent history and upcoming future of Arsenal. It's something Arsenal have done for many years and is something that is good that [...]

Ceballos move is shrewd for all parties

Morning all and before I get in to the usual stuff, if you received a barrage of old blogs from me yesterday into your inbox/social media feed, many apologies. The Wordpress app on my phone had a bit of a meltdown - probably because we haven't signed anyone - and suddenly started reposting every blog [...]

The kids impress against Fiorentina, but so do some of the senior players

So it appears as though this summer is going well from a results perspective, eh? A 3-0 victory against Fiorentina, another 'W' on the board and some encouraging performances from some players, I have to say. Take Saka, for example, who looked good in small flashes last season but really impressed in yesterday's game. He [...]
