Mikel’s Ozil stance is bang on, as is the clubs’ Luiz stand

Morning folks and welcome to the end of another week. It's all gone a bit Pete Tong for me this week because, having had to suffer through the debacle up at City - inspired by our clumsy Brazilian centre half - last night I spilt boiling hot vegetable oil on my fingers, so this morning [...]

Luiz loses the plot but Arteta has more problems than that

If you were to tell somebody to write a script that embodied the current Arsenal team, then play out that script in the form of a football match, it would resemble something very similar to what we witnessed last night with the 3-0 defeat at the Etihad. It had all of the component parts: Injuries [...]

Man City preview: How will Arteta react to City’s obvious threat?

A match day blog. How about that then. I've almost forgotten what one of those looks like. But here we are a mere 12 or so hours away from the resumption of this Premier League season and even though we're playing City, even though we're probably losing tonight, I'm still excited. My expectations have been [...]

Arteta’s presser shows us a statesman

By |2020-06-16T07:58:54+01:00June 16th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Hold the phone, we have ourselves a press conference, which means football has never felt closer! And I'm giddy like a little schoolchild. So perhaps I should take some time to hold my hands up and admit that I didn't think I'd feel this excited when the lockdown and postponement was of the Premier League [...]

What are Auba’s options?

By |2020-06-15T08:11:01+01:00June 15th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, contracts, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Another Monday in lockdown. But at least this is the last one before we've got football to moan about again. And we've got something else to moan about this morning because Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been speaking to French journos about his future and, let's be honest, it doesn't exactly bode well for a bright outcome [...]

Don’t lose your sh*t over a friendly fitness exercise defeat to Brentford

So it turns out there was a bit of football played again yesterday, as we entertained Brentford at an empty Emirates bowl and unfortunately lost 3-2, with the Bees bagging a goal in the last couple of minutes to see off the game. It was all a bit cloak and dagger until the last minute, [...]

what could have been at Arsenal and what unfortunately has been – transfer thoughts

Well now, they've finally lost it at the Premier League and in trying to pump in crowd noise via the red button when the season restarts, we're going to have come to the last desperate grabs by the broadcasters to protect their 'product'. Selfishly I hope it bombs. That's because I'm one of the people [...]

Can Arsenal build momentum after City game in two weeks?

Happy Thursday to you and yours. Hope you're doing well and that your family is safe and loved. Hug them tightly if you can. The Arsenal news is remaining thin on the ground but we're getting dribs and drabs at the moment. David Ornstein has been talking on the Athletic podcast and in print (well, [...]

Discount David Luiz not enough for Benfica; Bellerin exit unlikley I think

Morning folks and welcome to the middle of the week. I like to call it..... Wednesday. In two weeks time we'll be staring down the barrel of another "match day" and I'm sure you can't contain your excitement, especially with the way we're bound to have Sky and the other channels absolutely hammer the sh*t [...]

A touch of the Cohen Bramall’s on Arsenal’s new signing

Morning peeps, hope you’re holding up well, as always. Another week has passed us by and here we are for another Saturday, sans The Arsenal, but at least we have each other, am I right? We also have the odd bit of slim pickings to choose from on an Arsenal news front. My Twitter feed [...]
