Arsenal depressingly never laid a glove on Chelsea

I don't know what was worse about yesterday's defeat to Chelski; the actual defeat, or the horrible predictability of how the game would go. I thought we'd concede early. We did. I thought they'd get a second and it would kill the game. It did. I thought we'd barely be able to fashion any chances [...]

Back at The Arsenal, back with the ‘fear’ – Chelski preview

I can't say I'm overly confident about today's match if I'm completely honest with you. Aubameyang aside, this will be the same side that looked so lifeless and defensively fragile as the one that started the season against Brentford, only this time, we're playing a team that has just started the season with a comprehensive [...]

Does the COVID excuse wash for Arteta?

Martin Odegaard officially confirmed yesterday, Aaron Ramsdale also confirmed and with that, they instantly get my full backing and hope that we succeed with them in the short, medium and long term. We can all have questions over the signings but now they are here you have to be happy that they are and I [...]

The boost of Auba and new signings

Certainly a fair ol' chunk of stuff to get our teeth in to this morning, eh? Firstly the signings, which will be announced today and there are even one or two fuzzy/grainy pics going round of what looks like Martin Odegaard with the media team at Arsenal doing a video shoot outside. I think we [...]

The media bashing on Odegaard is because Arsenal are a big club

If there's one thing that is sure to brighten up a day, it is a shiny new signing, so today we're hoping there's one to speak of and I suspect there will be. Apparently Odegaard had his medical yesterday and after that happens there's usually some pictures and a video made up, so I wonder [...]

Odegaard the ‘no brainer’ deal that Arsenal had to do

I kinda did a fair bit of thoughts yesterday on Odegaard,  in saying that I'm hoping for that instead of Coutinho, so perhaps yesterday evening was just the football karma gods cutting me a break as I was scrolling through my Twitter feed last night to see that David Ornstein and a couple of Norwegian [...]

Coutinho to Arsenal should be instant dismissal, but hope remains in Odegaard

Yesterday I was playing catch up on the game from Friday and so I didn't really have the online page space to talk about some of the transfer rumours currently going around. Which is just as well, because the one that emerged yesterday that Sky Sports are now reporting on is that Barcelona want to [...]

Has Arteta’s fan credit slipped away?

Well in terms of football, that weekend was about as atrocious an depressing as any Arsenal fan could have imagined, wasn't it? I mean, we didn't even get the peace and excitement of a Friday before the match before it was all ruined, after a poor performance from those Arsenal players and the same familiar [...]

Arteta needs a strong start

Match-day! Whoop! After gawd knows how long, we finally have a game with a full house of fans and even though I’m on a stag weekend in Edinburgh and none of the gents are football fans, there’s no way I won’t be watching tonight’s game from my phone. It’s an irritating one because Brentford is [...]

No Ramsdale for Sheffield United, No Ramsdale for Arsenal, please…

Last night Sheffield United beat Carlisle in the first round of the League Cup and Aaron Ramsdale did not feature. Cue the noises online about an impending transfers and a possible deal to Arsenal, which was shortly followed by a general outpouring of disdain from my social media timelines. Honestly, I don't think there has [...]
