Morning all. That title is the one you'll most hear from those who don't really want to be seen to be somebody who is advocating a change of direction when it comes to a new manager at a football club. We had it under Arsène, although in the latter stages that was dominated by people [...]

Xhaka’s paternity leave and Wenger’s extended leave from the Emirates

By |2019-09-09T07:44:18+00:00September 9th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, Internationals|0 Comments

Morning folks and welcome to another interminable week of international nonsense before we get to next weekend and the return of the Premier League. What I always find fascinating about these breaks is not so much the football itself, but rather all the speculation that seems to be whipped up as a result of players [...]

Is the Arsenal squad getting more balance about it?

Welcome to another Monday folks. I watched yesterday's game between Chelski and Leicester and although I found myself chuckling in to my lamb shank I'd prepared for evening meal, upon reflection I shouldn't have been chuckling as hearty, because Leicester are no mugs and they'll pick up plenty of points this season. They play decent [...]

Iwobi needed a reboot, we need a new captain

Alex Iwobi opens up and tells Sky Sports that he's always been seen as the youngster and now wants to set his own agenda. Fair play to him I see and having experienced something similar in my working life I can kind of understand why he might want to try something else. I worked for [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Fairytale Arsenal ending for era-defining game?

Morning Gooners. One day down, another seven to go until we learn our fate and from what I hear this game is almost certainly viewed within the club as a watershed moment. Especially when it comes to summer plans. If Champions League football is on the table for next season then everything changes, not only [...]

Saliba deal shows Arsenal acknowledging a different model

Morning Gooners. Happy Monday and all that jazz. We're hitting the critical countdown until the Europa League Now just a week and two days and we're at crunch time and I don't know about you, but this feels like it's the longest period of time I've ever had to wait for a football match, probably [...]

Boring cup finals and scary European ones

A quick one on Man City before I go in to the Arsenal spiel as usual today; their victory confirming the first ever domestic treble was certainly warranted. They are the best team this season by a mile and you have to respect the squad of players and Pep Guardiola for achieving the feat. However, [...]
