Is Arsenal’s absence in Europe really giving us much of an advantage?

Morning folks. How is it Thursday already? Before you know it we'll be staring down the barrel of a trip to Clobbermeister Central, aka Burnley Football Club, who with each week seem to be appearing on my timeline with 'tackles' that are half taking off the feet or legs of their opponents. I look forward [...]

There is no silver bullet for Arsenal Football Club

Morning folks and welcome to Tuesday. We are less than a week away from it all being over and I am starting to get excited. The thought of three months away from having to shout at my TV because young men in their 20s and 30s can't make me happy on a football pitch makes [...]

European Super League will end football as we know it

I was having a read of the always excellent 7amkickoff's blog yesterday. I don't read lots of blogs (not even my own! But you could probably tell that given the typos sometimes ;-) ) but occasionally check in on some and this one intrigued me because it was about the possibility of the UEFA Super [...]

I don’t want to be burned in a European cup final again

Morning folks. How is it Wednesday already? It's like life is flashing before our very eyes, eh? I guess the upside is that we're getting closer to being able to go back to normality from a global pandemic situation. Plus from an Arsenal side we also step closer towards the end of this wretched season, [...]

Kia Joorabchian has shown just how embedded at Arsenal he is – and it’s worrying

Morning folks. I'm not going to bother to delve into some of the latest Willian stuff about his wages and the total package, as well as the fact it hasn't happened and is expected to happen over the weekend, because frankly I'm already bored of it all. So when he arrives I'll be pleased, glad [...]

Usmanov’s Everton investment casts more shadows on KSE

I guess you can't really call it Arsenal news, but given that Alisher Usmanov was a shareholder at Arsenal until recently, it has a bit of Arsenal related to it, and certainly I think it has implications for the Premier League. Because Everton confirmed last night that Usmanov has invested £30million in naming rights for [...]

Irrational plotting on Arsenal’s top four hopes

I find it a little bit weird that even though we are mid-table fodder right now, I still look at those teams towards the top of the league and think "good" when things go against them, as if their misfortune might in some way benefit us. So the fact that Leicester City drew at home [...]

Pochettino’s exit interesting to Arsenal in more ways than one…

Welly, welly, welly. Looks like that 'orrible lot blinked first out of the underperforming teams this season and with rather a lot of swiftness, have turned around a Pochettino exit and a Mourinho arrival in the space of less than 12 hours. Normally I don't bother taking about them much but there's a few things [...]

If it isn’t a ‘win or bust’ for Emery in the next four games…it should be…

Morning all. It's Tuesday, there's still a whole heap of the week ahead of match day, and this part of the international breaks are always the worst. This is the part where any residue news from before the international break has dried up, the team news ahead of Saturday is still a few days away, [...]

Players edging for the Arsenal exit

It's the international break and although we all needed some time away from the tripe that Arsenal have been serving us up of late, these periods of time are still boring as hell, it has to be said. Step forward Bellerin's agent to spice it up a bit, eh? Or Torreira's people clearly giving briefings [...]
