I decided to go for an early run this morning and as usual, put on my headphones and had a listen to an Arsenal podcast or two. There was one topic which I did find interesting during the run, which was from the lads on the Arsenal Vision podcast, in which they touched on the [...]

We're another Monday closer to the Premier League kick off boys and girls, with this week's current noises from an Arsenal perspective being the eventual signing of Ben White from Brighton, who is expected to undertake his medical on Wednesday and sign for us by the time we play Chelski at The Emirates in the [...]

Abraham the shiny new thing, but we already have other shinies….

Morning folks. Happy Saturday. Hope yours is set up to be a good one. I'm off in to London for a birthday party in a pub this evening. Mask wearing on the tube aside, it all feels very normal and that's great. I also went in to London last night. The Management bought me a [...]

Arsenal must roll the dice on non-Premier League acquisitions

Everyone thought the Nuno Tavares move seemed sensible enough, right? Young, hungry to prove himself, low fee, good understudy. Then we all poretty much agreed that Albert Sambi Lokonga was a good move for The Arsenal, yeah? Young, athletic, speaks decent English so should be able to slot in well in terms of communication, looks [...]

Sambi signs – but replacing Ceballos or Xhaka?

We have ourselves a fresh new signing to talk about! Ok, so it's not exactly like the old 'Sol Campbell turns up when everyone thought it was Richard Wright' level of surprise and intrigue, because we all knew this deal was going to happen and we've been fed enough information to know it was more [...]

Pepe, ‘The Smith’ and Auba – post Rangers musings on three key players

I was in no fit state yesterday to do anything other than sit in the sun and melt a bit, so didn't pen any post Rangers thoughts and, given that it's a Monday and there isn't really any massive breaking news from yesterday, I thought i'd jot down some musings from the game that I [...]

Arteta being backed with White and Lokonga’s arrivals at The Arsenal?

So it looks like the wheels are finally turning when it comes to Arsenal's transfer business. Yesterday evening, as the weekend beckoned, we got the social media call from The Ornacle that Arsenal had agreed a deal to sign Ben White from Brighton for roughly around £50million or thereabouts. It's a heck of a lot [...]

Saliba, Lokonga and Smith Rowe’s number

My whole thing about how we become so aware of transfers that by the time they actually happen, the joy of the signing isn't as joyous as the 'old days', also works for players leaving too. I've bleated on so much about Saliba lately that when it was confirmed by Arsenal and then on Marseille's [...]

Nearly halfway in to the transfer window – is anyone else starting to be concerned?

I didn't watch the game against Hibs on Tuesday and so didn't actually manage to catch some individual performances. So the sight yesterday of a slightly rounder Willian on the pitch, with various pictures of him looking visibly chubbier as he faced off against the Scottish team, would be utterly hilarious, if it wasn't so [...]

Tavares and Locatelli – one locked down, the other not down

Happy Thursday folks! Hope you are doing well? Bit weird with no football on for two consecutive days, isn't it? I had to make do with Wimbledon last night and Andy Murray scraping through against a guy who had basically never played tournament tennis, or something like that. He was decent though and made Murray [...]
