Is Freddie’s promotion a warning shot to Unai?

Morning folks and happy Friday unto thee. We have some news amongst the barren wasteland of post season silence, although as much as many people online wanted it to be some sort of magical work of fiction and Kroenke was leaving the club and throwing his shares out of the plane over the Emirates as [...]

Saliba’s potential arrival poses questions for Arsenal now

Morning folks and welcome to another Monday. It's a William Saliba shaped one by the sounds of it and supposedly we are in for him and have finally come to an agreement with his representatives, with just the small matter of St Etienne needing to agree the fee, so in other words the hardest bit [...]

Carrasco and Nelson can (and should) be in the same team

Last night as The Management was doing a fitness video I decided to undertake a bit of channel surfing and, upon landing on the sports section on Sky TV, I found a host of international games going on. My general malaise over all things internationals clearly extends beyond the boundaries of the domestic football season, [...]

Gooners losing their sh*t over transfers yet?

By |2019-06-11T08:20:50+01:00June 11th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|0 Comments

Another day and I'm sure there'll be another round of spurious transfer rumours on the cards. We've had Carrasco, the two Sampdoria lads, some guy who used to play for Villa called Veretout, Saliba and Claude Maurice from Lorient. Those stories have had the transfer juiciness squeezed out of them to that little remains from [...]

Carrasco adds a bit of excitement; Welbeck was a ‘what could have been’

By |2019-06-08T10:33:34+01:00June 8th, 2019|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|3 Comments

Another day, another spurious link, with Yannick Carrasco seemingly back on the cards for circa £30million it seems. I've gotta say this is one that would get some fans excited about. He's a Belgium international, showed flashes of brilliance whilst at Atletico Madrid and if it's true that his Chinese overlords will sanction a move [...]

Some dudes are linked to Arsenal

And today's latest conversations on the Arsenal transfer speculation pile include: Two lads from Sampdoria A Russian lad who scored against us last season A French kid nobody had heard of this time last year Liam Neeson's character from 'Taken'* *not actual Liam Neeson. The guy from the movie he played in. Last Action Hero [...]

Freddie’s promotion: the bridge between youth team and first team?

The curse of Chris struck again yesterday it seems, as I listed out all of my reasons why Xhaka would not be leaving, which of course led to a supposed 'cousin' saying "he's off to Inter for €55million". Given that sort of money I'm not surprised that there's a link but I'm still putting it [...]

Here’s why Auba isn’t going to China and Xhaka isn’t going to Inter

Morning Gooners. Provocative headline I know, but given some of the rumours that have circulated over the last 24 hours I thought I'd wade in with my opinion as to why I cannot see either Granit Xhaka or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joining the respective clubs they've been linked with by the gutter press. Let's start first [...]

Arsenal aren’t bringing enjoyment any more

This last few days has been some of the longest times I've not blogged since I started this website up around ten years ago. I don't tend to do it too much when I'm on holiday, usually because I'm hanging and not waking up until after 10, but this time around there is no such [...]
