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

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 [...]

Friendlies Schmendlies, but who plays in Arsenal’s midfield?

Can I admit something to you? I really couldn't give a monkeys about the pre season friendly games. Sorry, but there, I said it. I mean it's not that I don't appreciate their value to fans that don't get to see The Arsenal every odd week like I do, but because I do and because [...]

Morrow doesn’t inspire ahead of a crucial summer

It's funny that at a time in which the England team are smashing it up both at home and away, I still can't really bring myself to get excited about the national team, most likely because of the likes of Kane and Dier being such regulars. If that is the representation that my country has [...]

How much chance do the youth players have at Arsenal?

Morning folks - just about - hope you're having a lovely Monday? Mine is just grand, although from an Arsenal perspective there's very little on as the team prepare for a MASSIVE CRUNCH TIE IN DUBAI tomorrow. It'll be interesting to see how many of the first teamers and how many of the youth get [...]

Welbeck’s return probably isn’t great news for Suarez

I had a few drinks last night and bleurgh, i'm feeling a little worse for wear, i have to tell you. But I wasn't drunk enough to watch England last night and despite the fact they smashed Czech Republic I can't get too excited about a team captained by The Crayon-eating Dribbler up top. Sorry.

April will define Unai Emery’s first season at Arsenal

With work sending me across the globe in the last 10 days or so it's been difficult mustering the energy to write daily Arsenal ramblings, especially when you're so far behind on news due to the tone zones that by the time you do write something it's rendered a little redundant, so today I'm back [...]
