After the trauma of Saturday evening and what happened to Christian Eriksen, yesterday was back to football and dare I say it, it was actually a lot of fun to watch the matches I watched. I sat down just after lunch in my back garden and watched an England team that, for a change, didn't [...]

Lokonga and Onana – get it done Arsenal

By |2021-06-11T07:31:12+01:00June 11th, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Defence, finances, pre season, Transfers|0 Comments

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 [...]

Ek still hanging around, but sadly so will the Kroenke’s

Morning folks, hope you're all feeling fine and dandy. How is it Thursday already? Madness. Not as mad as I was feeling yesterday, or more accurately, incredibly hungover after an all-day offsite meeting with some people in my business and then an all night drinking session afterwards. Oh how I have missed those times, but [...]

No funny business with the Xhaka sale to Roma please, Arsenal

So it appears that we are now in full swing for transfer nonsense time, with today's instalment including our Swiss centre midfielder who really does seem to divide opinions. So many people can't look beyond the lack of pace, his mistakes and occasional hot-headedness, as well as some of the other issues like the Palace [...]

Arteta’s ‘hurt’ and the need for swift summer action from Monday

By |2021-05-22T08:52:09+01:00May 22nd, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, finances, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Mikel Arteta talked to the assembled press yesterday and I have to say I thought he talked about a whole manner of things that were interesting to try to read between the lines. So much so that I actually think more was debated about 'other stuff' than the actual Brighton game itself. Which to be [...]

Balogun in for next season? How about Ek too?

By |2021-04-27T08:17:50+01:00April 27th, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, contracts, finances, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board|0 Comments

Morning folks. Let's start with some positive news this morning, shall we? And that news was thew confirmation that Flo Balogun has signed a new deal with the club that keeps him at The Arsenal until 2025. It is a deal that four or five months ago not many of us thought would happen and [...]

Cashing in: Edu’s big summer ahead

Phew. That was a relief to see that Man City are still in control when it comes to the Man City Cup, the cup which essentially proves that if you have enough money you can build a squad to rotate that is better than other squads. But the most important thing at all was that [...]

Hollow words from Josh Kroenke…”an open letter to our owners”

By |2021-04-23T08:06:37+01:00April 23rd, 2021|Arsenal FC, finances, gooners, Gunners, History, Ownership and the board, Rant|0 Comments

We've got a game tonight and I should probably be speculating about rotation and how I think we'll line up against a tricky Everton side but, if I'm honest, after what I saw from yesterday's fans forum (full transcript can be found on Football.London's website here) it feels a little hollow to be talking about [...]

Arsenal fans must now unite against the common enemy that is KSE

Yesterday, around 48 hours after the footballing world had apparently turned on its head, after 12 teams decided that they wanted to shake football to its foundations through the creation of the European Super League, the project and plan was essentially doomed with all of the English clubs withdrawing their support for the Super League. [...]

Do I even like football any more without The Arsenal?

Morning folks. Hope you are well. The European Super League stuff keeps rumbling on and I suspect will do for quite some time. I can't speak to anybody else, but it has left me feeling quite hollow, I have to say. I started the first iteration of this daily blog in August 2011. I remember [...]
