Match day for The Arsenal! Alright, it is only the Community Shield and ok, it’s Liverpool. But a match day is a match day and this is one in which I don’t have the usual nerves or fear of what a result will do to our season. That’s because, frankly, it doesn’t matter. As Arteta [...]

Welcome Will.I.An, with your versatility also welcome

Well now that’s it’s official we can all start working out what next! Yep, Will.I.An is a gunner and that means he’ll be serenading the team with his dulcet tones and silky touch on the fields of London Colney as soon as they’re all back from holiday. We didn’t quite get the fairytale Aubameyang signing [...]

Arsenal’s “creative accounting” on Diawara/Torreira swap

Another day brings with it another set of spurious rumours that Arsenal are linked with, along with a clutch of players that everyone seems to know everything about, which I'll get to in a second. But first, at least we know one fact from yesterday, which is the details of the Community Shield, which takes [...]

Arteta impresses again, but admits to some challenges, amidst uncertainty

Plenty to get through today, after Arteta had his press conference ahead of Sunday’s dead rubber, the Premier League fixtures for next season were confirmed, as well as the disappointing news that Mustafi will miss the cup final due to the injury he picked up in the Semi Final last week. You really have to [...]

Can Smith-Rowe fill Arsenal’s creative void alone?

Morning all and happy Friday to you. Not long now and we can stick a collective two fingers up to this disaster of a Premier League season. Can't wait. I don't really want to look ahead too much at the Watford game because, frankly, it is of little consequence to me. So last night and [...]

Guendouzi is just one in a long line…

After a defeat that's as shabby as Saturday's one to Brighton, we've had some things that have 'come out in the wash', as they say. Is it me, or are we the only club that this happens to? A couple of year's ago we had Troy Deeney and his 'cojones' statement, we've had Patrice Evra [...]

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 [...]

Torreira to outlast Unai Emery?

As if things can't feel like they seem any more farcical right now, we found out yesterday that Lucas Torreira wants talks with the manager because he is not happen with his current situation or his role in the Arsenal team, which to most of us is a 'well, duh' kind of moment really. That's [...]

Boring, boring Arsenal – more dropped points in Portugal

If anybody was expecting anything other than the turgid football we got last night, can you make yourself known to the nearest steward, because you might need some kind of psychological evaluation. Yesterday late afternoon Unai Emery's Arsenal side delivered an utter stinkfest, again, which saw us outplayed by a team who my mother asked [...]
