Arsenal need to ship out before they bring in and Coutinho shouldn’t be one that comes in

So we have our first bit of significant cash coming in as Krystian Bielik becomes a Derby player for around £10million, as well as Takuma Asano heading off to Partizan Belgrade for £1million, meaning that we made a £2.5million loss on a player who essentially went out on loan for the whole of his Arsenal [...]

Pepe’s old news by now, but what about our back line movements?

When it comes to the exciting Nicolas Pepe story, we've had it all now, haven't we? Yesterday he was pictured in an Arsenal shirt as leaked footage emerged of him tapping the shirt and with that we know something will happen today officially but, as is the way of the modern social media world, it [...]

Pepe edges closer, Mustafi edges further away, but defence questions remain

So we're edging closer towards the Pepe signing as - if rumours are to be believed - he's due for a medical at some stage either today or tomorrow and despite the fact that nothing is secret any more and so we all know chapter and verse about this deal, I'm still excited, and I [...]

Some positives from youth but that Arsenal back line terrifies me

So we had the Emirates Cup yesterday in which Lyon eventually beating us from coming two goals behind (one of which looking like it certainly had more than a whiff of offside about it) and as a result there were a few Gooners who sadly couldn't see a victory on home soil before the important [...]

What’s going on at right back for Arsenal?

So we have a Sunday morning in which there's an Emirates Cup on the horizon later on this afternoon and probably a little more Pepe chatter until something breaks like a 'spotted at Arsenal' or 'medical set for x date' or something similar. After my later post yesterday there was some noises about PSG possibly [...]

The kids impress against Fiorentina, but so do some of the senior players

So it appears as though this summer is going well from a results perspective, eh? A 3-0 victory against Fiorentina, another 'W' on the board and some encouraging performances from some players, I have to say. Take Saka, for example, who looked good in small flashes last season but really impressed in yesterday's game. He [...]

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 [...]

Saliba deal surely means we take another look at Bielik or Chambers?

So it appears the William Saliba deal from St Etienne is reaching its final conclusions and I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say "thank gawd". It's dragged on far too much with St Etienne insistent on that loan for an additional season. That's an interesting one I have to say from [...]

Bielik can walk the same path as Nelson, but Nelson needs to be backed first

I don't really know what to make of all the Lucas Torreira nonsense, so instead I think I'll ignore it, because until we hear from more credible sources about the potential move, or until we hear about credible offers (a two year loan deal and €38million fee at the end is, frankly, an abomination of [...]
