Seeking advice from my Dani Ceballos wall calendar

I'm on day three of my 'work from home' lockdown and today's mission was to go to Sainsbury's over the road and buy two anti-bacterial soaps. We have just run out in our en-suite and there's another running low and unlike so many knobs out there, I'm not contributing to the panic that has set [...]

Auba’s contract length was wrong; why signing Willian doesn’t make sense

If Saturday’s results - including The Arsenal’s - were a positive day for us, then yesterday’s were the opposite, as Everton rolled over and let Chelski blow raspberries on their bellies, whilst Man City played the possession-based game of how to be toothless against A United side who had their number early on in the [...]

Gnabry’s trajectory, Saka’s future

Of ever you needed a clear-cut example of how Tony Pauli’s is ‘anti-football’, it can be evidenced by Serge Gnabry and his goals against Chelski last night, quickly followed by a collective groan by Arsenal fans everywhere. I’m not saying Pulis is totally to blame for the ‘exit stage left’ of Gnabry from Arsenal, but [...]

Rotation tomorrow, but not too much; Saka’s contract

Morning folks. This will probably be a short one from me, on account of the fact I’ve spent half my journey this morning clearing up f*cking hot sauce that fell on the floor as I sat down on the Met Line this morning. FFS! Anyway, in terms of Arsenal there’s not too much going on [...]

An empty Arsenal stadium to see some fun against Frankfurt tonight?

Have you ever felt so 'Meh' about a game in your life? Probably. There's games towards the end of the season when there's nothing left to play for that feel very pointless and although this match tonight has something riding on it - Europa League qualification to the k computer phase - it's hard to [...]

Joining the super agents bus – both in selling & buying

Morning friends. Football friends. Compatriots who share the same love as me: lovers of The Arsenal. It's midweek and we still might have three days to go until football returns, but the stories keep dropping relating to The Arsenal or, in this case relating to Jeff Reine-Adelaide. He should be netting Arsenal just under €3million [...]

Koscielny’s actions show how much of a mess we’re in

Arsenal feels like an absolute hot mess at the moment, doesn't it? We've had a quiet and pretty lacklustre summer - as usual - and the club seems to be messing up transfers left, right and centre, but to add insult to injury we also have players actively pushing to jump ship. Yesterday's announcement by [...]

Martinelli wants a Ronaldo career trajectory – we could do with that!

By |2019-07-03T08:08:57+01:00July 3rd, 2019|Arsenal Transfers, contracts, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|0 Comments

We have our first signing of the summer! Hazaar! Gabriel Martinelli joins us from Ituano and hopefully it's not the 'Petr Cech solo summer signing' of a few years back, but it is still good to see a new face in at the club. A new face who models himself on Cristiano Ronaldo and if [...]

Osei-Tutu, ESR, Nelson and Saliba – why Arsenal have to get all of their futures right

So we have the first young player confirmed outgoing in Jordi Oseu-Tutu and, at 20 years of age and not really got near a regular starting place in the first team, I'm not too surprised. I won't pretend to be an expert on the youth team and I simply don't watch enough, but this feels [...]
