The reintegration of Granit Xhaka

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

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

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+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 [...]

Eddie’s fine start and Pepe’s sensible management

Morning folks and welcome to another saturday, sadly one without The Arsenal, but at least we can pour over some Arsenal-related news. That's because Eddie Nketiah bagged himself another goal yesterday for the Under-21 England team against Turkey and I must tell you, despite the fact they are all poachers goals and tap ins, this [...]

Nacho’s sad admission; international football’s confidence concerns

Nacho Monreal leaving us to go back to Spain was greeted with a lot more respect and acceptance than the poor way in which Laurent Koscielny left the club earlier in the transfer window. It was seen that he'd been professional right up until the last and whilst that certainly appears to be the case, [...]

West Ham defeat shows Unai must swallow his pride on some players

Yesterday's game was, unfortunately, not a 'bad day at the office' that we can say is in isolation with this Arsenal team. Sadly our away form has dropped off of a cliff for the last month and in the league when you consider that has included Southampton, Brighton and West Ham - where we've taken [...]

Morning folks. Hope you're all feeling in fine form on this here Wednesday morning of darkness in the UK. Dark because I keep on with this annoying little habit of getting up before most of the world feels awake. I should look in to that. Taint natural, I tells ya. We should be having the [...]

Guendouzi and Torreira: the exciting Arsenal future

Morning folks. Holy moly it's colder than an emperor penguin gathering point in London today. Well, it's actually only about four degrees but when you add a biting bit of wind to it and the fact I'm on the tube at 6.30am in the morning, it all adds up to a general feeling of discomfort. [...]
