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 [...]

Spreading power at Arsenal

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. [...]

Ramsey situation isn’t like Alexis, so Bayern is palatable

Happy Friday people. Hope it goes well for you and your kin. Me, I'm toiling in the boredom levels of no Arsenal to think constantly about, but the fact I have my folks over for the weekend and the fact The Management and I are doing a bit of tourism in London tomorrow is keeping [...]

Holding holds his space as Emery remains guarded on form and Rambo

Proper football is finally coming back on the agenda and with it we're getting some lovely little sound bites from our man Unai. Ahh I can't tell you how much I've missed being able to talk about upcoming Arsenal. I don't know why but this particular international break has felt like a bit more of [...]

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 [...]

Does Mesut really need a social hug?

Ahh man this Interlull is interminable. It feels like the world has literally ground to a halt as we patiently await the return of actual, proper, football. I'll be honest with you, even the news that Henrikh Mkhitaryan bagged goals and assists for Armenia, or that Reiss Nelson bagged an Under-21 goal with a free [...]

Koscielny is so bored with internationals he’s quit

Happy Monday folks. Hope you're all fine and dandy given the international break boredom we are all collectively enduring right now. I mean it really is a snooze fest, eh? I'm not sure how anyone can claim to have any interest in it at this time of the year. Especially if you're an Arsenal fan. [...]

Nelson – the first proper Arsenal LANS?

I'm sorry but anybody who can get remotely 'up for' this selection of international football boredom festivals that are arranged for this weekend probably needs an enima from Dr Seward from Dracula Dead and Loving it. For me the only purpose these intermissions of proper football provide is when we're on a poor run of [...]

Arsenal getting it right in all aspects this summer

I know people are quick to read into things, especially online and I am certainly not immune to this, but we keep getting these videos of the team training, working on fitness, showing the backroom staff doing their thing on Arsenal.com and it's hard not to see the stark contrast between this and the previous [...]
