Well, after basking in the radiant glow that is an away win on Thursday night, what better way to continue the positivity than to announce a shiny new signing! Ok, we kind of knew the deal was done for US national team goalkeeper Matt Turner and yes, it isn't exactly in the position we need, [...]

Last night Middlesbrough dumped United out of the cup. I’d completely forgotten that this weekend was FA Cup weekend! It’s been erased from my memory after our Forest debacle, but at least there was some Arsenal connection, as Balogun played 60 minutes for Boro and by the sounds of it performed quite admirably. I didn’t [...]

Yesterday we finally  heard from Aubameyang after his move to Barcelona was signed, sealed and delivered to the people of Catalonia, with the striker opening up about his exit. As you'd expect it was all his variation of the events that unfolded, but he didn't tell us too much in terms of what went down, [...]

It’s not a war chest Arsenal have, it’s a replenishment jar

This morning I stumbled downstairs in my usual half awake state, opened the fridge, got out my berry smoothie I have for breakfast, then flicked open my social media and news feeds on my phones to see what is happening in the world. Do you now what the first piece of speculation was that I [...]

How the hell can Arsenal keep every player fit?

And so the saga ends. Relatively quicker than the Özil one that dragged out for two or three seasons, the Aubameyang saga was concluded within two months, as the club confirmed it had terminated the contract with the player by ‘mutual consent’. Whatever that means. And I say that because there are a myriad of [...]

Arsenal have weakened themselves this January – that is a fact.

Well here we are folks. The road ahead is as clear as day and so to is the list of players we will have available to us until the summer window opens up at the end of June. And I am sure you, as much as I, am disappointed with what has transpired this January. [...]

Arsenal gambling on what they’ve got is a worry

Here we are then. Transfer Deadline Day. One of the most hyperbolic days in the footballing calendar and a day that TV companies like Sky utterly adore because it puts eyeballs on their products and clicks in their advertising reports. For the rest of us junkies it is a hit of morphine at a time [...]

Is Isak’s release clause the ‘break glass in case of emergency’ for Arsenal?

Ahh man I am hanging this morning. Even the sound of the clicking keyboard feels like a drum beat on my skull. I went out for a leaving drinks for someone in my team and so didn't really check Twitter or my phone for most of the evening, until I got on the tube and [...]

Another one bites the Arsenal dust

Arsenal look like they’re playing the most Harry Redknapp “well, I’m daan to th’ bare bones ‘ere lads” approach to squad composition I think I’ve ever seen in my life! Yep, yesterday another one bit the Arsenal dust, as Calum Chambers signed for Aston Villa almost completely out of the blue. It took pretty much [...]

Arsenal’s media briefings have many of us worried

This time of the transfer window is always where the irritation from football fans reaches its zenith. That's because we're not close enough to the window closing shut to really know exactly where we might stand, but we're also not far enough away from the window that people are saying "we've got time". So we [...]
