Coutinho to Arsenal should be instant dismissal, but hope remains in Odegaard

By |2021-08-17T07:17:37+01:00August 17th, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Transfers|1 Comment

Yesterday I was playing catch up on the game from Friday and so I didn't really have the online page space to talk about some of the transfer rumours currently going around. Which is just as well, because the one that emerged yesterday that Sky Sports are now reporting on is that Barcelona want to [...]

Arteta needs a strong start

Match-day! Whoop! After gawd knows how long, we finally have a game with a full house of fans and even though I’m on a stag weekend in Edinburgh and none of the gents are football fans, there’s no way I won’t be watching tonight’s game from my phone. It’s an irritating one because Brentford is [...]

Holding out for a Tammy?

You know the rumour I can really get behind on a Tuesday morning in terms of outgoings at the club? Rob Holding to Newcastle for £20million. Ooh dawg now THAT would be a good deal that would make us all raise eyebrows and nod impressively at our back office team trying to secure some exits [...]

Are Arsenal ready for the new season? Is Willock’s exit just the start?

So the two big talking points today then, are: The final televised friendly against the Scum that ended in a 1-0 defeat yesterday lunchtime The impending sale of Joe Willock First, the game itself, which was the final one in the 'Mind' series. We found ourselves on the wrong end of the result and finished [...]

Must Arsenal hold their nerve in selling players?

T-minus nine days and counting (if you count today) until the kick off to the new season and, as it stands, we're looking at a VERY familiar line up to the one that led us to two consecutive eighth places over the last couple of seasons. That's not going to get too many Arsenal fans [...]

As much goodness and badness: Chelski friendly review

Plenty to chew over from yesterday's 2-2* draw over Chelski at the Emirates, some good, some shall we say 'less so good'. Let's get the less so good stuff out of the way first though, because I'd rather finish today's blog feeling a little more positive, given that it's a Monday morning. Arteta named a [...]

Watford take a look at Eddie as Azeez looks tasty

Well, don't we have a lot of things to chew over on this Thursday morn, eh? For starters there was a game yesterday. Bit last minute, but Arsenal arranged another friendly at London Colney in which Watford came to visit from over the fence. Almost literally, given their training ground is next to ours and [...]

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 [...]

Emile Smith Rowe has been given the keys to The Arsenal

By |2021-07-23T07:54:52+01:00July 23rd, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, contracts, Mikel Arteta, pre season|1 Comment

Well that's another big 'tick' off the 'to do' list for Edu, Arteta and Arsenal this summer completed, after it was confirmed yesterday that Emile Smith Rowe has signed a new long term agreement to remain at Arsenal for the foreseeable future. And I don't think you'll see many disappointed Gooners with this decision this [...]

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

By |2021-07-19T08:11:02+01:00July 19th, 2021|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Mikel Arteta, pre season|1 Comment

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 [...]
