So whilst some of the players have been away on international duty this weekend, the club continued its preparations for the upcoming season with a friendly against Aston Villa, which would have been far more palatable to watch than having to sit through the England game. But it wasn’t televised so we had to make [...]

Arteta and Arsenal’s midfield test at the Community Shield today

Match day for The Arsenal! Alright, it is only the Community Shield and ok, it’s Liverpool. But a match day is a match day and this is one in which I don’t have the usual nerves or fear of what a result will do to our season. That’s because, frankly, it doesn’t matter. As Arteta [...]

Has Guendouzi bought a ticket for the Arsenal boat?

Morning party people, hope you’re all well and happy Friday to you and yours, which is happy because... FOOTBALL’s BACK TOMORROW! Ok, it’s a friendly and ok, it’s against a Liverpool side who will probably batter us with our midfield. But at least it’s something to talk about and with that we also got Mikel [...]

A fun surprise Arsenal friendly with familiar faces

By |2020-08-26T07:35:50+01:00August 26th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Defence, friendly, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

Quite out of the blue yesterday we all got treated to a little early evening entertainment, as the club announced a friendly against MK Dons which was to be at 6pm, which was a nice little boost to my Tuesday evening I have to say. So I tuned in to have a little watch last [...]

Don’t lose your sh*t over a friendly fitness exercise defeat to Brentford

So it turns out there was a bit of football played again yesterday, as we entertained Brentford at an empty Emirates bowl and unfortunately lost 3-2, with the Bees bagging a goal in the last couple of minutes to see off the game. It was all a bit cloak and dagger until the last minute, [...]

Nacho’s sad admission; international football’s confidence concerns

Nacho Monreal leaving us to go back to Spain was greeted with a lot more respect and acceptance than the poor way in which Laurent Koscielny left the club earlier in the transfer window. It was seen that he'd been professional right up until the last and whilst that certainly appears to be the case, [...]

Silly goals conceded against Barca; deja vu defending shows signings needed

By |2019-08-05T07:57:58+01:00August 5th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Defence, friendly, pre season, Unai Emery|0 Comments

Final pre season friendly out of the way and, as probably is to be expected, we went to the Nou Camp and came back with a defeat. It's a familiar thing that we've seen before so there won't be too many surprises with that and hey, I've spent all summer saying that the results from [...]

Arsenal need to ship out before they bring in and Coutinho shouldn’t be one that comes in

So we have our first bit of significant cash coming in as Krystian Bielik becomes a Derby player for around £10million, as well as Takuma Asano heading off to Partizan Belgrade for £1million, meaning that we made a £2.5million loss on a player who essentially went out on loan for the whole of his Arsenal [...]

Some positives from youth but that Arsenal back line terrifies me

So we had the Emirates Cup yesterday in which Lyon eventually beating us from coming two goals behind (one of which looking like it certainly had more than a whiff of offside about it) and as a result there were a few Gooners who sadly couldn't see a victory on home soil before the important [...]

Madness against Madrid; empty seats against Lyon?

As I've been saying all summer there's very little that you can take from these friendly matches other than who's at what stage of their development, but it looked like it was one heck of a crazy game against Madrid last night, especially when you have sendings off in friendlies. I didn't watch the match [...]
