The big story of yesterday obviously doesn't include The Arsenal, but as always, when you hear a story the likes of the City one and the magnitude of it you start to apply your own thoughts relating to your own club. My first thoughts were "is Champions League now more attainable if fifth place gets [...]

Arsenal aren’t signing Upamecano. Here’s why…

A provocative title for a Friday morning, I know, but when I was checking my Twitter feed I saw that it was awash with people asking whether or not we'd be in for the French international. He's young, strong, having an excellent season with Leipzig and has one year left on his deal in the [...]

The Wednesday lull before Arsenal content kicks in again ahead of Sunday's game against Newcastle... **tumbleweed rolls by** There ent a lot going on right now. I mean, when the noises of a 'battle between Arsenal and Spurs' are being reported in relation to who's going to host the next Anthony Joshua fight takes place, [...]

Don’t lose your sh*t over Emery, Gooners, he’s not worth it

With the Arsenal players all out in Dubai talking up how much more fun, enjoyable and together they all are under Arteta compared to Emery, it appears the Spaniard has decided that he will not go quietly into that sweet night, and has been talking with increased frequency on his time at the club. He's [...]

Fostering unity at The Arsenal

I spent most of yesterday hanging and most of Saturday drinking red wine and eating red meat and given there wasn't any Arsenal to think about, it didn't really feel worthwhile blogging about what's going on. Because let's face it; there isn't really anything. I don't count players posting pictures of themselves training as news, [...]

Arteta’s mini pre-season; all eyes on the return fixtures

By |2020-02-07T07:28:45+00:00February 7th, 2020|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, pre season, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

This morning, I be mostly thinking about....mini pre seasons. We're in one right now. It's a winter break in which Arteta has taken the lads out to Dubai to bond, talk tactics, probably look at opponents and most likely give a little bit of a reset on what has happened over the last six weeks. [...]

Super agents and Raul’s contact book will have us relying on Edu

There was a wee bit of reaction from my post yesterday, in which I suggested our summer 'war chest' may not be as big as we'd like. I had a couple of people suggesting I was talking a load of old nonsense. I don't deny that I do talk a load of old nonsense but [...]

Soares in is a sensible move for Arsenal

Bit of a later one from me today. Partly because I was working from home this morning and therefore haven't been sat on the tube able to write my usual ramblings. But mainly because I went out last night on a work corporate thing and first thing this morning I was pretty hanging. It's a [...]

Pablo Mari signs for Arsenal: reasons to be excited

So we have ourselves a shiny new player! One in which we can pour all of our hopes, dreams and ambitions into, that he'll be the next Tony Adams or Sol Campbell. Until the summer. Yep, because it's a six month loan deal with an option to buy and as I've said already this week [...]

Arsenal’s Mari stance is spot on

By |2020-01-29T07:37:05+00:00January 29th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

So it appears the transfer Merry-go-round for Pablo Mari has once again swung around Arsenal's way, as reports from Brazil last night were saying that Flamengo have accepted Arsenal's desires and will make the deal for him to join us this January, one that will only be a loan with an 'option' to buy rather [...]
