COVID curse for Arsenal? Where have all the midfielders gone?

Could all just be rumour. Could just be 'The Internet' and 'Internet People' being all 'Internetty', but with ESR not in the Under-21s England squad yesterday, as well as not being in the squad for the full international team over the weekend, the rumours started to circulate that Emile was 'ill' and in the current [...]

Morning y’all, hope y’all are fine and dandy and living your best lives on this Tuesday morn? It was over a week of sun in the south of Portugal for me and although I had access to my computer and the internet, I’ll be completely honest with you, I just couldn’t be bothered with it [...]

Man City preview: All Arsenal have is hope

I don't think there's many people on this planet who could argue a case for Arsenal getting anything today. It really does feel like we have two hopes: Bob Hope and No Hope, against the Champions of England, on their home turf. There is nothing to suggest that even a draw would be possible, given [...]

Arteta bright-eyed and batting off Aubameyang speculation

No messing around from Arteta yesterday, was there? What I mean by that was he dropped a press conference in the morning following what will have been a late night on the Wednesday. I left pretty much after the final whistle on Wednesday and I got home at half 12, so they must have got [...]

Exits key to right back issue at The Arsenal?

It seems like there apears to be some movement in the departure lounge at London Colney. Over the last 48 hours we've heard stories about Palace wanting Nketiah for £10million, Fiorentina wanting Torreira for €1.5million loan deal and €15million option to buy at the end of next season, as well as...drumroll...Corinthians wanting Willian on a [...]

Arsenal depressingly never laid a glove on Chelsea

I don't know what was worse about yesterday's defeat to Chelski; the actual defeat, or the horrible predictability of how the game would go. I thought we'd concede early. We did. I thought they'd get a second and it would kill the game. It did. I thought we'd barely be able to fashion any chances [...]

Back at The Arsenal, back with the ‘fear’ – Chelski preview

I can't say I'm overly confident about today's match if I'm completely honest with you. Aubameyang aside, this will be the same side that looked so lifeless and defensively fragile as the one that started the season against Brentford, only this time, we're playing a team that has just started the season with a comprehensive [...]

Does the COVID excuse wash for Arteta?

Martin Odegaard officially confirmed yesterday, Aaron Ramsdale also confirmed and with that, they instantly get my full backing and hope that we succeed with them in the short, medium and long term. We can all have questions over the signings but now they are here you have to be happy that they are and I [...]

Odegaard the ‘no brainer’ deal that Arsenal had to do

By |2021-08-18T07:20:52+01:00August 18th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Transfers|4 Comments

I kinda did a fair bit of thoughts yesterday on Odegaard,  in saying that I'm hoping for that instead of Coutinho, so perhaps yesterday evening was just the football karma gods cutting me a break as I was scrolling through my Twitter feed last night to see that David Ornstein and a couple of Norwegian [...]

Has Arteta’s fan credit slipped away?

By |2021-08-16T07:51:13+01:00August 16th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league|2 Comments

Well in terms of football, that weekend was about as atrocious an depressing as any Arsenal fan could have imagined, wasn't it? I mean, we didn't even get the peace and excitement of a Friday before the match before it was all ruined, after a poor performance from those Arsenal players and the same familiar [...]
