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 [...]

Xhaka contract: Are Arsenal kicking the midfield can down the road?

So it looks like Granit Xhaka is on the verge of "FOUR MORE YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS!" as they say in the ol' US of A when wanting their politicians to stay on. Only this doesn't feel like a groundswell of Arsenal public opinion that will see the Swiss international captain get a slight pay [...]

There's only one place to start this morning, which is with the official signing of Ben White confirmed by the club. He'll wear the number four shirt and when speaking to the Arsenal fan that interviewed him yesterday, I think he came across really well and he's clearly very happy to be here. It is [...]

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 [...]
