Morning folks and welcome to Thursday. I tested positive for COVID yesterday which is bloody annoying, because I was supposed to be at a work away day today in which I presented to the whole company, but that's now been thrown out of the window and as a result it's a day of tapping away [...]

Arsenal taking a little help from ‘Legacy Fans’

I'm going to stray in to territory where I'm not exactly 100% comfortable or an expert in today. This is my disclaimer to let you know that what I'm now about to say is based on my opinion and so is both open to interpretation, bias, as well as potential factual inaccuracy, although if so [...]

Yesterday we finally  heard from Aubameyang after his move to Barcelona was signed, sealed and delivered to the people of Catalonia, with the striker opening up about his exit. As you'd expect it was all his variation of the events that unfolded, but he didn't tell us too much in terms of what went down, [...]

It’s not a war chest Arsenal have, it’s a replenishment jar

This morning I stumbled downstairs in my usual half awake state, opened the fridge, got out my berry smoothie I have for breakfast, then flicked open my social media and news feeds on my phones to see what is happening in the world. Do you now what the first piece of speculation was that I [...]

How the hell can Arsenal keep every player fit?

And so the saga ends. Relatively quicker than the Özil one that dragged out for two or three seasons, the Aubameyang saga was concluded within two months, as the club confirmed it had terminated the contract with the player by ‘mutual consent’. Whatever that means. And I say that because there are a myriad of [...]

Arsenal gambling on what they’ve got is a worry

Here we are then. Transfer Deadline Day. One of the most hyperbolic days in the footballing calendar and a day that TV companies like Sky utterly adore because it puts eyeballs on their products and clicks in their advertising reports. For the rest of us junkies it is a hit of morphine at a time [...]

Another one bites the Arsenal dust

Arsenal look like they’re playing the most Harry Redknapp “well, I’m daan to th’ bare bones ‘ere lads” approach to squad composition I think I’ve ever seen in my life! Yep, yesterday another one bit the Arsenal dust, as Calum Chambers signed for Aston Villa almost completely out of the blue. It took pretty much [...]

The Super League by stealth (Brought to you by the Premier League)

Yesterday I wrote about the Newcastle takeover as it was about to happen and then later on in the day we saw the confirmation that one of the richest 'consortiums' in the world had bought Newcastle. So here we go again. Another sports washing exercise (it entirely IS that despite what Amanda Staveley said in [...]

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 [...]
