Arsenal are lining up transfer ducks for July

Signing relatively unknown goalkeepers, when we should be hard at work getting on board defenders and wingers, you say? That's the Arsenal I know! I had begun to wonder what the new regime would cook up in their first full summer transfer window but it appears that they've dusted off Wenger's old "how I deal [...]

Carrasco and Nelson can (and should) be in the same team

Last night as The Management was doing a fitness video I decided to undertake a bit of channel surfing and, upon landing on the sports section on Sky TV, I found a host of international games going on. My general malaise over all things internationals clearly extends beyond the boundaries of the domestic football season, [...]

Carrasco adds a bit of excitement; Welbeck was a ‘what could have been’

Another day, another spurious link, with Yannick Carrasco seemingly back on the cards for circa £30million it seems. I've gotta say this is one that would get some fans excited about. He's a Belgium international, showed flashes of brilliance whilst at Atletico Madrid and if it's true that his Chinese overlords will sanction a move [...]

How desperate are Arsena to win the Europa League?

This is it then. A whole season distilled down to one football match in which the success or failure will be viewed. All through the prism of a European Cup final. I've seen one in my lifetime, witnessed three heartbreaking ones, so I'm very aware of our record in Europe and very aware that this [...]

Fraser is worth a punt if the price is right

Morning Gooners. Happy Saturday. Not long now until we find out whether this season is a busted flush or glorious chapter in the clubs' history. But whilst many of us are starting to focus on the Europa League, there are still transfer speculations going on and the one that appears to be properly hotting up [...]

Kannemann/Mustafi makes sense, but Laca should stay

Excuse me whilst I take a breath to sarcastically laugh at the UEFA statement in response to Arsenal's statement about the cup final in a week and a half's time. Hahahahahaha.....hahahaha....haha...ha....sigh... What an absolute joke that organisation are. "For UEFA, fans are a priority". No, they're really not. Perhaps that should have read slightly different: [...]

Auba’s day as we sign off with win at Burnley

Well that's that then. We finally bring an end to this domestic season and whilst I'm not as glad to see the back of it as last year, it's not really ended the way I'd have hoped. In fact, the last few weeks have been pretty turgid domestically and whilst we still have an outside [...]

Arsenal need an away goal and no defensive brain farts against Valencia

I hope that this morning when you woke up you hugged your children a little bit tighter than you usually do. Because unless Arsenal progress this evening against a Valencia side who fancy their chances up against our awful defence, then we're in a whole world of trouble, of biblical proportions. Last night's result means [...]

Arsenal’s lack of athleticism causing this slump?

Looks like it's time to start booking in those caves in remote far-flung destinations of the word because if the Totts beat Ajax to the final tonight then it won't be a final I'll be wanting to watch or know the result of. I'm already on a personal social media lockdown after last night's capitulation [...]
