I guess you can't really call it Arsenal news, but given that Alisher Usmanov was a shareholder at Arsenal until recently, it has a bit of Arsenal related to it, and certainly I think it has implications for the Premier League. Because Everton confirmed last night that Usmanov has invested £30million in naming rights for [...]

Arsenal players disillusioned? Now they know how we feel!

Morning folks. It's wet, it's dark, it doesn't really feel like my last day in the office before Christmas and I'm hanging a little. Everything's a little fuzzy and vague. A bit like an Arsenal transfer pursuit - be it manager or player! We seem to enjoy having the worst kept secrets, don't we? I [...]

Concerns over Arteta are understandable. But what if…

By |2019-12-17T07:57:25+00:00December 17th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, History, Ownership and the board|0 Comments

So it appears we are on the verge of Tricky Micky Arteta re-joining the club as manager, of all of the noise it to be believed, as pretty much every media outlet is reporting it and has been doing so since last night. Here's the thing: I like Mikel Arteta. The noises that come from [...]

Arsenal fans show players how it’s done – Man City review

The only 'non-depressing' thing about yesterday's 3-0 defeat at home to Man City yesterday was the act of defiance that came at the end of the game. Not by the players of course and not by Mesut Özil who displayed more energy kicking a water bottle than for the rest of the game (although all [...]

Arsenal’s worst five players of the Premier League era?

By |2019-12-02T21:43:26+00:00December 3rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, History|2 Comments

Arsenal have been blessed with a dazzling array of world-class talent since the Premier League era began in 1992. Thierry Henry, Robert Pires, Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira, Santi Cazorla, Tony Adams and Sol Campbell are among the titans of the game to ply their trade at Highbury and The Emirates. Yet we have also been [...]

Emery’s time is up. But other questions remain.

It's finally happened. Yesterday morning Unai arrived at the training ground to prepare for the Norwich game this weekend and he didn't even get to put the cones out. By the time the first ball was kicked at London Colney he and his Spanish staff had been told that their services were no longer required [...]

Morning folks. Last night there was a a statement released by the 'We Care Do You' collective of fans and groups and it highlighted some of the frustrations that I'm sure many of you feel. As part of that group of fans I feel it to and so before I talk about anything else today [...]

Arsenal manager: “So who would you get then?”

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

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 [...]
