Gazidis: the Samir Nasri CEO

Back in Blighty and back to normality for me after Portugal and New York at the weekend and whilst I was hoping to talk about the Newcastle game, impact of Torreira, Xhaka, etc, etc, it's Gazidis who seems to be dominating the topic of conversation after Arseblog News broke the story that he's set to [...]

On Wednesday we got ourselves a new manager confirmed and it's no surprise given what we now know about him that he's been at the training ground and going hardcore on swotting up on everything about the club. Meeting all the backroom staff, having a quick chat with Kos, starting to get an idea on [...]

Maybe Arteta isn’t as ‘high risk’ – here’s why…

It all seems to be drawing towards the inevitable conclusion that Mr Perfect Hair himself is going to be our next boss and what I'm listening to and reading about seems to be about how he's not as 'Mr Nice' as everyone keeps portraying. It does seem funny that all of this noise is coming [...]

Kroenke spin machine in overdrive

By |2017-10-26T08:17:27+00:00October 26th, 2017|Arsenal FC, finances, gooners, Gunners, History, Ownership and the board, Rant|0 Comments

It’s the AGM today and with the yanks in attendance and the AST set to go through with their symbolic gesture of no confidence by voting against Sir Chips and the Kroenke’s, it’s just to be a slightly more cagey atmosphere, even if that’s the best that fan groups can do to suggest change at the [...]

Stan Kroenke could rot Arsenal like Lerner, Gillett and Hicks

I'd heard - like I'm sure many of you did over social media - that the Kroenke bid for Usmanov's shares had happened, but the mainstream media are now going for it and so it seems like it's becoming more relevant and in the public eye, after Amy Lawrence from the Guardian wrote a story [...]

I support Arsenal: I have been lied to

Hello. How are you doing? Hopefully you are holding up ok? Given the circumstances?  After all, three months ago you were told that Arsenal had a 'war chest' of around £200million to spend. You were fed lines by those who are used as PR mouthpieces for the club who you might not blame for the [...]

PSG? Sure! Shut up and take my Alexis.

It's funny how rumour and speculation can send some football fans mad with anger. Every summer there is a transfer rumour either in or out that clearly isn't on the cards, yet people go bonkers over it for a period of time, then a week later have forgotten all about it. That's kind of how [...]

Alexis the playing version of Mourinho; Laca news is good

Well, we've Certainly had our fair bit of Arsenal news filtering through yesterday, didn't we? One good, one probably not so good, so let's start with the not so good first: Alexis. He's said to assembled members of the press that he's made up his mind what he wants to do but isn't telling anyone. [...]

Ox news worries as the clock ticks

Can I tell you what I don't like? I don't like it when players who seemed to have turned a corner at the club are suddenly linked strongly with moves away. I am, of course, talking about Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who has now been linked with three of the top four Premier League clubs this season. [...]
