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 [...]

Saliba, Lokonga and Smith Rowe’s number

My whole thing about how we become so aware of transfers that by the time they actually happen, the joy of the signing isn't as joyous as the 'old days', also works for players leaving too. I've bleated on so much about Saliba lately that when it was confirmed by Arsenal and then on Marseille's [...]

Nearly halfway in to the transfer window – is anyone else starting to be concerned?

I didn't watch the game against Hibs on Tuesday and so didn't actually manage to catch some individual performances. So the sight yesterday of a slightly rounder Willian on the pitch, with various pictures of him looking visibly chubbier as he faced off against the Scottish team, would be utterly hilarious, if it wasn't so [...]

A good look at the Arsenal kids at Hibs

First pre season match underway and you'll forgive me for not really giving two sh*ts about the result, I'm sure, right? After all, the team that started yesterday's 2-1 defeat to Hibs in Edinburgh, won't be the same side that faces up against Brentford in a month's time on the first game of the Premier [...]

Pre season starts without Saliba, backing for Saka, plus more ESR speculation

Happy Tuesday party people. How y'all doing? holding up ok? It's amazing how many England flags have been cast asunder in Uxbridge, or other such paraphernalia like football shirts, which I've seen just discarded like an old apple core. Some people, eh? All over that bandwagon whilst the going is good, but as soon as [...]

The Saliba saga continues…and it’s everyone’s fault

Yesterday morning I think it was, when I read that Saliba had withdrawn from the French Olympic team, which I thought meant he could come back to Arsenal and get a good pre season and then who knows, probably get the chance to impress and maybe even play some football for us so Arteta could [...]

The Nelson and Xhaka situations are both weird and irritating

Morning folks. Hope you're well. Doing a little bit of R&R at The Management's Northumbrian-based family over the next week, so some of my usual ramblings might be a little later in release than usual as I sleep in. But I'll let you know if I see Joe Willock rock up in a hotel restaurant [...]

Liking England for the first time in 30 years

I love that I have a surrogate team for international competitions. I am proud that I've got a little bit of German heritage in me and that when all else fails, usually, I can at least trust on that little bit of Deutsch in mein blut to keep international tournaments interesting through the years. Not [...]
