Pepe’s value needs a French kick start; holding on to Holding?

It's Rumour-mill: The Exit edition, going on at Arsenal  right now, if you believe all of the papers over the last 24 hours.  We've had Pepe off to Nice, Holding off to Aston Villa, although Hector Bellerin's zero-price move to Betis appears to be going cold. I'll avoid the final player in that trio, but [...]

Zinchenko’s understated impact at The Arsenal

Morning folks, hope you're all well. A lot better than Joachim Andersen and Darwin Nunez this morning I would say, with the Liverpool forward probably still annoyed with himself for being suckered in by Andersen and poor helpless and defensive Andersen, who was victim of the 'brutal' headbutt that caused him to hit the deck [...]

My take on the Bellerin situation

Thursday is upon us lovely people and I hope you are enjoying yourselves. I'm not sure what the weather is like where you are but it's scorching in the UK right now and for that I couldn't be happier. I know, I know, global warming, climate change and all that jazz, but gosh darn it, [...]

Morning Gooners, how we all doing today? How we feeling? Counting down the seconds until the first home game of the season? I know I am. Blistering heat, a home match where the atmosphere will be amazing, it'll be one heck of a day - I hope - spoiled only by a Jamie Vardy dive [...]

Arsenal’s accordion pressing approach – this is just the start (hopefully)

Morning folks, happy Saturday and all that jazz. Much nicer to face an entire weekend knowing that The Arsenal did their job early, eh? It meant I could look at the games yesterday with a little more of a shrug than I would have done if we'd have drawn or lost. Okay, I see that [...]

The ‘new’ Arsenal and a little of the ‘old’ Arsenal overcome Palace

This time last year - nearly enough (matchday one of the Premier League I mean, as the season has started early this year), I was the best man having organised a stag trip to Edinburgh. I had the Brentford game on my smartphone and I watched as an under-prepared, poorly resourced, Arsenal team stuttered and [...]

Here we go then folks! Strap yourself in because pre season is officially done and dusted and tonight, for the second season in a row, we are first up on the Friday night football billing as we travel to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. In the game last season it was shuffled to a Monday [...]

What do you expect from The Arsenal this season?

Ahead of the big kick off tomorrow evening, I've been asked by a few people on social media and in WhatsApp groups, about what my expectations are for this season ahead. And do you know what? I don't really have an answer to it if I'm completely honest. I'm going to try to fashion some [...]

This Arsenal team is ready

Morning morning, fellow gooners! How we all doing? Feeling chipper after that absolute mauling yesterday? I know I am. On top of the world, in fact, because if you’re going to lay down a blueprint for how a pre season should draw to a close, I’m not sure many of us would disagree that giving [...]
