Arteta’s reliance on those already here – a dangerous game?

I decided to go for an early run this morning and as usual, put on my headphones and had a listen to an Arsenal podcast or two. There was one topic which I did find interesting during the run, which was from the lads on the Arsenal Vision podcast, in which they touched on the [...]

Arsenal need to sort out their first team quota pronto

I do have to chuckle at Man United fans you know. I start off today's Arsenal musings with a smile in relation to the Manc's, because there are a fair few of them crowing that they are buying Varane for £34million plus some add ons, as well as Sancho for £73million, then comparing that to [...]

I know pre season friendlies aren't supposed to mean anything, that you can't read too much in to them and that had we lost yesterday's 'behind closed doors' friendly at London Colney to Milwall then we'd all have shrugged and said 'move along', but I have to tell you I did enjoy watching the game [...]

Abraham the shiny new thing, but we already have other shinies….

Morning folks. Happy Saturday. Hope yours is set up to be a good one. I'm off in to London for a birthday party in a pub this evening. Mask wearing on the tube aside, it all feels very normal and that's great. I also went in to London last night. The Management bought me a [...]

Emile Smith Rowe has been given the keys to The Arsenal

Well that's another big 'tick' off the 'to do' list for Edu, Arteta and Arsenal this summer completed, after it was confirmed yesterday that Emile Smith Rowe has signed a new long term agreement to remain at Arsenal for the foreseeable future. And I don't think you'll see many disappointed Gooners with this decision this [...]

Feeling for the American Gooners, but how does this impact Arsenal’s prep?

Stepping in to a nice, ice cold shower, with the weather in blighty like it is right now, is some kind of heaven. Don't get me wrong though, I'm loving the warm weather, because we get so little of it in this country. So you won't get me moaning that it is too hot. Nosiree. [...]

Pepe, ‘The Smith’ and Auba – post Rangers musings on three key players

I was in no fit state yesterday to do anything other than sit in the sun and melt a bit, so didn't pen any post Rangers thoughts and, given that it's a Monday and there isn't really any massive breaking news from yesterday, I thought i'd jot down some musings from the game that I [...]

Arteta being backed with White and Lokonga’s arrivals at The Arsenal?

So it looks like the wheels are finally turning when it comes to Arsenal's transfer business. Yesterday evening, as the weekend beckoned, we got the social media call from The Ornacle that Arsenal had agreed a deal to sign Ben White from Brighton for roughly around £50million or thereabouts. It's a heck of a lot [...]

Nearly halfway in to the transfer window – is anyone else starting to be concerned?

I didn't watch the game against Hibs on Tuesday and so didn't actually manage to catch some individual performances. So the sight yesterday of a slightly rounder Willian on the pitch, with various pictures of him looking visibly chubbier as he faced off against the Scottish team, would be utterly hilarious, if it wasn't so [...]

A good look at the Arsenal kids at Hibs

First pre season match underway and you'll forgive me for not really giving two sh*ts about the result, I'm sure, right? After all, the team that started yesterday's 2-1 defeat to Hibs in Edinburgh, won't be the same side that faces up against Brentford in a month's time on the first game of the Premier [...]
