Saliba slighted, Rice rejoicing – the internationals still rumble on…

Oh Didier....if you're gonna come for Big Bill Saliba, you better swing hard and true, because we Arsenal fans will have his back for sure! Of course I'm sure Deschamps couldn't give a monkeys about us and what we feel, but regardless of that, it does feel a little crass of him to make comments [...]

Is less games the answer for football?

Morning Gooners and happy Monday to you. I was in the Algarve over the weekend and so didn't have much chance to pen any thoughts, but as it was an international weekend that kind of worked out well for me, because Eddie Nketiah first England appearance aside in the last 20 minutes of the friendly [...]

Clean bill of health for Arsenal’s international stars?

Morning you lovely lot. Happy Wednesday from a tired Gooner hurtling his way towards central London on the Metropolitan Line for an all day strategy session. Could life get any more exciting, eh? Still, at least I'm not in Harry Maguire's position, because he can't get anything right, eh? I mean don't get me wrong, [...]

A nice little cup in the sunshine for The Arsenal

Morning all - how we all doing after yesterday's late Community Shield drama, eh? I thought it was a very interesting display in the end; plenty for us to chew over and whilst it wasn't exactly a barnstorming game, it was a fascinating one that will have had all of the tacticos salivating over two teams [...]

Arteta’s pre City comments; the most perfect Balogun ‘clause’ for Inter

I'll be dammed if the cat didn't decide to sit on my chest at 4am this morning and aggressively purr into my face for about 45 minutes. So I'm up at 6.20 to let the little bugger out and I thought I might as well start typing some Arsenal related waffle a little earlier than [...]

Arteta’s plans remain a mystery ahead of tonight’s game against Monaco

Well it seems - if ol' Romano is to be believed, that the Raya deal edges closer. I will still maintain that I'm not sure it is the move for us; he's a good 'keeper but no better than Ramsdale in my opinion, Brentford want too much money for a guy with one year left [...]

Impressive and intense Arsenal show the strength of the squad against Barca

This is probably the weirdest post match blog I've ever written. Weird in the fact that at the time of writing, the friendly game in LA against Barcelona only finished about an hour ago and because I was in bed for the actual game (It's a school night for me, kids), it feels a little [...]

Mikel has himself a Swiss Army Penknife team

For us here in the UK it’s a late night kick off for the friendly against Man United this season, but given I’m out and about today, that kind of suits me, as when I get home I’ll be able to have a little look at the score and then do a rewatch of the [...]

The unpredictability of the Arsenal family

So we're on a countdown now until our next pre season friendly on Saturday night at 10pm UK time and, if we're all honest, this one feels like it's REALLY kicking it up a notch, am I right? That's because it's Man United in New York and it represents an opportunity to see where we [...]

Arsenal purring as pre season kicks off properly

Now THAST is how you kick off a summer tour as a football club. Forget about the fact that the MLS All Stars have had just a few days of training together, forget about the fact that they are a composition of the best players from the American 'Soccer' League, this was an emphatic Arsenal [...]
