Welcome to another Monday folks. I watched yesterday's game between Chelski and Leicester and although I found myself chuckling in to my lamb shank I'd prepared for evening meal, upon reflection I shouldn't have been chuckling as hearty, because Leicester are no mugs and they'll pick up plenty of points this season. They play decent [...]

Well, that was an interesting lunchtime spent yesterday afternoon, wasn't it? Actually, probably not, because like Arsenal like to do I chipped off most of the fingernails I had with my teeth in the last ten minutes or so. It's not that we were massively troubled and it's not like Burnley were overly quality, but [...]

This feels like the proper start to the season for me today. I picked up a fresh set of home and away kits and will be rocking my beautiful red and white Adidas Arsenal shirt in the ground today for the first game of the season. I'm right back there. Right back to the obsession [...]

I know there Will be those out there saying "it's only Newcastle" and given that Newcastle are in a bit of turmoil themselves I know it was hardly the most difficult of starts for us to kick off our campaign yesterday afternoon in the north east, but I was delighted with yesterday's win in so [...]

Morning all and welcome to the day after the night before, in which Arsenal finished the first transfer window since I can remember where Arsenal fans are reasonably happy with the business that has been conducted all summer. Yesterday the arrivals of David Luiz and Kieran Tierney were confirmed in the afternoon and so it [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
