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 [...]

Leicester: sh*t or bust for Arsenal’s Champions League hopes

By |2019-04-28T09:37:14+01:00April 28th, 2019|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Champions League, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

Another away trip against a team with nothing to play for and sadly I have very little confidence that we will come out of this one with any points. Wolves aren't fighting for anything, Palace weren't fighting for anything, yet both put three past us and with Leicester sure to play us on the counter [...]

At least Arsenal have form and at least we’re still in the hunt

Well here we go folks. It's the countdown to the North London Derby and that will start with a press conference from Unai Emery at some stage today no doubt. Mercifully at least we have a bit of form going in to this one. I know "it all goes out the window" for the NLDs [...]

Morning folks. Happy Chinese New Year if you're so inclined to celebrate it. Me personally, I'm half celebrating because my company is predominantly Asian based and so whilst I don't get the day off like many of them do, I have to say it's rather nice having a week where I can play catch up [...]

Roma fire a warning shot for Arsenal’s benefit

If ever there was a metaphorical neon 'warning' light that should have been flashing at London Colney and every Arsenal players house last night, it was demonstrated in the Champions League, but not where we thought. I tuned in to watch Liverpool hang on in the first half and then had some dinner and didn't [...]

Arsenal funnies: City, Lemar, Alexis and Koscielny

Howdy Gooners, hope you're holding up ok? Actually, it being an international break n'all, I kinda feel ok about it, because after last weekend and the subsequent failings in the transfer market, a bit of time away from the Arsenal is no bad thing. Of course when you write a daily Arsenal blog you kind [...]
