Morning folks and welcome to another Monday. It's a William Saliba shaped one by the sounds of it and supposedly we are in for him and have finally come to an agreement with his representatives, with just the small matter of St Etienne needing to agree the fee, so in other words the hardest bit [...]

Arsenal are lining up transfer ducks for July

Signing relatively unknown goalkeepers, when we should be hard at work getting on board defenders and wingers, you say? That's the Arsenal I know! I had begun to wonder what the new regime would cook up in their first full summer transfer window but it appears that they've dusted off Wenger's old "how I deal [...]

Arsenal aren’t bringing enjoyment any more

This last few days has been some of the longest times I've not blogged since I started this website up around ten years ago. I don't tend to do it too much when I'm on holiday, usually because I'm hanging and not waking up until after 10, but this time around there is no such [...]

How desperate are Arsena to win the Europa League?

This is it then. A whole season distilled down to one football match in which the success or failure will be viewed. All through the prism of a European Cup final. I've seen one in my lifetime, witnessed three heartbreaking ones, so I'm very aware of our record in Europe and very aware that this [...]

Saliba deal shows Arsenal acknowledging a different model

Morning Gooners. Happy Monday and all that jazz. We're hitting the critical countdown until the Europa League Now just a week and two days and we're at crunch time and I don't know about you, but this feels like it's the longest period of time I've ever had to wait for a football match, probably [...]

Kannemann/Mustafi makes sense, but Laca should stay

Excuse me whilst I take a breath to sarcastically laugh at the UEFA statement in response to Arsenal's statement about the cup final in a week and a half's time. Hahahahahaha.....hahahaha....haha...ha....sigh... What an absolute joke that organisation are. "For UEFA, fans are a priority". No, they're really not. Perhaps that should have read slightly different: [...]

Who should we get for £40million?

With the possibility looking that there's a paltry budget for Unai and the transfer team to play with, I thought I'd have a little think about who we could potentially get for the little amount of cash we're willing to part with this summer. That transfer kitty won't stretch very far as we all know, [...]

Auba’s day as we sign off with win at Burnley

Well that's that then. We finally bring an end to this domestic season and whilst I'm not as glad to see the back of it as last year, it's not really ended the way I'd have hoped. In fact, the last few weeks have been pretty turgid domestically and whilst we still have an outside [...]

Arsenal need an away goal and no defensive brain farts against Valencia

I hope that this morning when you woke up you hugged your children a little bit tighter than you usually do. Because unless Arsenal progress this evening against a Valencia side who fancy their chances up against our awful defence, then we're in a whole world of trouble, of biblical proportions. Last night's result means [...]

Arsenal’s lack of athleticism causing this slump?

Looks like it's time to start booking in those caves in remote far-flung destinations of the word because if the Totts beat Ajax to the final tonight then it won't be a final I'll be wanting to watch or know the result of. I'm already on a personal social media lockdown after last night's capitulation [...]
