Morning folks. Well, here you have it, it's a lockdown in the UK which means no more going outside at all unless you're exercising. I have a supermarket - a big one - opposite me and already this morning I've seen people queuing to get themselves inside the store to buy their essentials. Strap yourselves [...]

The perfect non-Arsenal football weekend

If you could map out a football weekend this season in which Arsenal don’t play, but you can have a thoroughly enjoyable time, well this weekend has so far been it. Leicester lost on Friday. Chelski drew yesterday. But the biggest ‘tick’ of the weekend was Liverpool being spanked 3-0 by Watford. It means no [...]

Gnabry’s trajectory, Saka’s future

Of ever you needed a clear-cut example of how Tony Pauli’s is ‘anti-football’, it can be evidenced by Serge Gnabry and his goals against Chelski last night, quickly followed by a collective groan by Arsenal fans everywhere. I’m not saying Pulis is totally to blame for the ‘exit stage left’ of Gnabry from Arsenal, but [...]

Auba adds to Emery damnation; Smith-Rowe groomed as Özil replacement?

Still nothing really meaty from the club ahead of the weekend's fixture with Newcastle, but that's to be expected give that it's Thursday, as well as the fact it's a home game. Arsène liked to do easy on a Friday, being Spanish Unai preferred them later on in the day, but Arteta has so many [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Usmanov’s Everton investment casts more shadows on KSE

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 [...]
