Football kits, memories and costs – something’s gotta give

Morning folks. Well, here you have it, it's a lockdown in the UK which means no more going outside at all unless you're exercising. I have a supermarket - a big one - opposite me and already this morning I've seen people queuing to get themselves inside the store to buy their essentials. Strap yourselves [...]

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 [...]

Super agents and Raul’s contact book will have us relying on Edu

There was a wee bit of reaction from my post yesterday, in which I suggested our summer 'war chest' may not be as big as we'd like. I had a couple of people suggesting I was talking a load of old nonsense. I don't deny that I do talk a load of old nonsense but [...]

Lacazette needs to fix up and Arsenal need European football

So Dinos has now been confirmed as heading out the door on loan to Germany and the next question is when Eddie will be sent out on loan. I said my peace on that yesterday so I won't dwell on what happens in the next few weeks, but I'd be surprised if he's not even [...]

Players edging for the Arsenal exit

It's the international break and although we all needed some time away from the tripe that Arsenal have been serving us up of late, these periods of time are still boring as hell, it has to be said. Step forward Bellerin's agent to spice it up a bit, eh? Or Torreira's people clearly giving briefings [...]

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 [...]

One month on: Starting to lose my sh*t with Arsenal

About a month ago I think I wrote a piece which said something broadly along the lines of "it's only June people, we don't need to lose our collective sh*t just yet". We were just a few weeks after the Europa League Final, it appeared as though there were a few targets who were being [...]

Lack of incoming and outgoing at Arsenal is now becoming an issue

Happy Monday folks. Hope you're all keeping your sh*t together despite the fact that we are heading off for the first pre season tour of the summer and there are still no significant incomings for us all to get excited about. I tweeted something about three weeks ago saying "chill out people, plenty of time [...]
