Arsenal need one top dog, not two

Happy Saturday to all of you wonderful people from a slightly grey Amsterdam, in which this weekend I'll be spending my time ahead of a marathon on Sunday morning and I must say thanks to the TV companies, because for once they've worked in my favour. I don't get back from Amsterdam until Monday at [...]

Keep Özil and Koscielny for the ones that really love them

Sooooo little to talk about in the Arsenal world right now. When headline news is the existing Arsenal ladies manager signing a new contract extension, plus Arsène Wenger saying how it wasn't good news for Germany to lose Mesut Özil (well, duh...), you know it's been a slow news week. The Özil situation isn't one [...]

Is Thierry’s fast track good for Arsenal?

So it seems there is so little to talk about when it comes to The Arsenal this morning, that all I really have to peruse over for my morning bowl of Frosties is a story emerging that Thierry Henry is about to take the reigns at Monaco, after Jardim was sacked, with Monaco currently 18th [...]

Life moves quickly for Iwobi and Leno

In football things change so quickly, don't they? Life moves fast and within a few seasons the fortunes of a team can look very different. Everyone is praising Liverpool for their transfer team and dealings these days, but it wasn't long ago under Rodgers that they were lambasted for their 'committee' approach to signings. The [...]

Time to phase out Ramsey from Arsenal

I like Aaron Ramsey. I like his energy, the spaces he occupies, the goals he has scored and I think a fully fit Ramsey is a massive asset to the team. So whilst my title is provocative in a sense, it is 100% how I feel and is not indicative of me being a 'Ramsey [...]

Gazidis: the Samir Nasri CEO

By |2018-09-18T07:54:02+00:00September 18th, 2018|Arsenal FC, finances, gooners, Gunners, History, Ownership and the board, Rant|2 Comments

Back in Blighty and back to normality for me after Portugal and New York at the weekend and whilst I was hoping to talk about the Newcastle game, impact of Torreira, Xhaka, etc, etc, it's Gazidis who seems to be dominating the topic of conversation after Arseblog News broke the story that he's set to [...]

Ivan stays or goes – both work for The Arsenal

Happy 'middle-o-week' day to you and your kin. I hope it shall be a fruitful one and you take advantage of the day. Arsenal still reside in Singapore and we're getting plenty of emoji-based icons to denote how hard they're working, how they're doing double sessions, all the while being given more access to backroom [...]

Özil goes in hard on Football/politics debate

It's a bit hot for three-piece suits in London, I can tell you that much, but when one has a personal 'brand' to maintain, the air temperature can't get in the way :-) It's also getting hot over at the German FA by the looks of it, because yesterday Mesut Özil dropped a bomb on [...]

Arsenal’s squad turnover: The New Batch

I've gotta be honest with you; felt a little bit weird seeing Jack Wilshere in a West Ham shirt yesterday. I don't know why because there have clearly been pictures of him as a little boy in a West Ham shirt, due to his family supporting the club, but it still felt odd and I [...]

Jack to go, hello Leno

Arsenal are certainly moving faster than any other summer we've seen in some time aren't they? Yesterday the club confirmed the arrival of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen in a deal which sounds like it's not of €20million. It's a deal that I've already mentioned I'm not sure of and I've already wondered whether or [...]
