Morning folks and happy Sunday to thee. If you're reading this in the UK then it's a bank holiday tomorrow, which turns today into a sort of pseud-Saturday, which is always lovely. Think we're due to get a bit of sunshine too, so hopefully I'll be able to sit out in the garden and slowly [...]

Aubameyang to PSG has me going all amateur accountant

I feel a bit dirty this morning. Not physically dirty, but mentally dirty, because I went on the hunt for some Arsenal content this morning and started clicking on transfer-related links from the click baitey gutter press. It was pretty, it wasn't fun, I didn't enjoy it and so the foray into the murky world [...]

Happy Easter Mondy y'all. Hope your Easter Sunday was as fun as you can make it. We had decent weather in West London so I managed to get out for a walk, before things got a bit tropical with a thunderstorm and lightning display, which worked out ok as The Management and I went full [...]

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 [...]
