Arteta’s not had the luck, but he isn’t letting that get to him

Well here we are, back to the proper football weekend's, which also means some words of wisdom from our young manager. Mikel Arteta had his press conference yesterday and talked about the proposed bust up of Luiz and Ceballos, the international breaks, as well as team news ahead of the weekend as we show down [...]

Spikiness in Arsenal training is good for me

Morning folks, how goes it? Hope you're all doing well? The Management has COVID so I'm in isolation until the end of the UK isolation, which kind of sucks because I won't get to do any exercise - something that has been really beneficial for me during this weird ol' year, but hey ho. Them's [...]

A left back problem developing for Arteta for this next week

By |2020-11-19T08:04:08+00:00November 19th, 2020|Arsenal FC, injuries, Internationals, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Another one bites the dust. Yep, there's another Arsenal player who will be missing from the ability to be selected this weekend when we play Leeds on Sunday and that player is Sead Kolasinac, who tested positive for COVID-19 after travelling and playing for Bosnia in this latest round of pointless and utterly stupid international [...]

Elneny’s absence shows reckless internationals; no five sub rules is a DISADVANTAGE to Arsenal

By |2020-11-17T08:40:35+00:00November 17th, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Internationals, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Well, it was always going to happen but yesterday it was confirmed: An Arsenal player has contracted COVID-19 and will now need to self isolate for two weeks. Mohammed Elneny is the victim of the virus and once again what this has done is highlight to me at least that these internationals are even worse [...]

Tierney’s isolation should result in binning internationals

By |2020-10-08T07:53:55+01:00October 8th, 2020|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Internationals, Mikel Arteta, Rant|3 Comments

As if there wasn't enough of a reason for me to hate international football as it already is, yesterday we were all dealt news that further compounds my detestation of the pointlessness of the international game during the domestic and European season, with the confirmation that Kieran Tierney has been told to self isolate for [...]

The reintegration of Granit Xhaka

By |2019-11-18T07:51:00+00:00November 18th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Internationals, midfield, premier league|0 Comments

It's gettin' mighty cold in these here parts, I have to say, although I'm pleased that I didn't have to venture out much. Had I wanted to I'd probably have swung by the away end at the Tiny Totts stadium, because the Arsenal ladies were there to serve up a victory against them in the [...]

Numbers are grim for Arsenal, but reliance of Europa is also grim

By |2019-11-13T07:43:13+00:00November 13th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, Internationals, Unai Emery|0 Comments

It's all expectantly quiet today and with the international break upon us within a day or two, I can understand that, because the Leicester debacle feels like it whipped up yet more anger and frustration and the comms that followed only poured petrol on the proverbial flames. The problem with the international break, however, is [...]

Returning player boost, plus one to come out from the cold?

WE HAVE SOME ARSENAL FIRST TEAM CONTENT PEOPLE!! Thank frigg for that, because that last international break was really getting on my wick. You know how sometimes these breaks can go quite quickly? No, me either, because that one get long. Probably longer than the others. It was maddening. But Unai did his "Good afternoon" [...]

Emery needs to select is midfield three and stick to it

By |2019-09-12T07:51:07+01:00September 12th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Internationals, midfield, premier league|0 Comments

I always love this time of the season. As Lisa Simpson once said about the time after they've been to Church "it's the longest possible time before we have to go again!" And I couldn't echo those sentiments more. International football is boring, dull, slow, plus my choice of allegiances are fixed to a team [...]

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

By |2019-09-09T07:44:18+01:00September 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 [...]
