So it looks like the wheels are finally turning when it comes to Arsenal's transfer business. Yesterday evening, as the weekend beckoned, we got the social media call from The Ornacle that Arsenal had agreed a deal to sign Ben White from Brighton for roughly around £50million or thereabouts. It's a heck of a lot [...]

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 [...]

Tavares and Locatelli – one locked down, the other not down

Happy Thursday folks! Hope you are doing well? Bit weird with no football on for two consecutive days, isn't it? I had to make do with Wimbledon last night and Andy Murray scraping through against a guy who had basically never played tournament tennis, or something like that. He was decent though and made Murray [...]

KT contract is great; if only we had one on the right…

The Euro’s got back underway last night and I watched Wales get smashed up by an impressive Danish team and thought “Wales aren’t that good really, are they?” I don’t know whether it’s because they are one of the home nations, or because they’ve got the likes of Bale and Ramsey in their side, but [...]

Is Ben White Arteta’s Monreal/Wenger signing?

Morning folks and welcome to Friday! Yesterday was the first day in which we didn't get any football and tonight it is the same, as the round of 16 games don't start until tomorrow and I have to say, I always find it a little sad. In some ways the group stages are the best [...]

Lokonga and Onana – get it done Arsenal

I don't really know who Albert Sambi Lokonga is, I have never watched a single minute of him play football, but I already know that he is the answer to our central midfield problems right now. With Granit Xhaka on his way out of Arsenal imminently, there is a pressing need for us to go [...]

Bellerin’s exit and the home grown issues it causes

Today, I shall mostly be talking about: Right backs. Specifically in this instance our current right back Hector Bellerin, who it appears to be the worst kept secret that he will be leaving this summer and oddly, everyone with any kind of stake in Arsenal appears to be fine with. Isn’t it funny when a [...]

Saka elevating himself once more; Saliba ‘noises’ need to quieten

Bukayo Saka, anyone? Our young protégé did it again last night and showed just why it was probably fanciful to think he'll be given a rest for the summer by not being including in the England squad for the Euro's, by bagging the only goal against Austria and generally looking like he was one of [...]

Arsenal’s sensible ‘keeper planning underway?

Happy Wednesday to thee, fellow Gooner. Today I am wearing the new yellow away jersey to work. Because I can. And I must say I love the colour, the nod to the past with the cannon (sigh, yes, I know the cannon is the wrong way, but I still love it) as well as the [...]
