Concerns over Arteta are understandable. But what if…

So it appears we are on the verge of Tricky Micky Arteta re-joining the club as manager, of all of the noise it to be believed, as pretty much every media outlet is reporting it and has been doing so since last night. Here's the thing: I like Mikel Arteta. The noises that come from [...]

Arsenal fans show players how it’s done – Man City review

The only 'non-depressing' thing about yesterday's 3-0 defeat at home to Man City yesterday was the act of defiance that came at the end of the game. Not by the players of course and not by Mesut Özil who displayed more energy kicking a water bottle than for the rest of the game (although all [...]

No new Arsenal manager until January

By |2019-12-03T07:45:08+00:00December 3rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, premier league|0 Comments

The big question on everybody's lips this morning: Will Freddie be in charge to oversee a glorious victory over Leeds United in the FA Cup? Of course I'm being a little flippant, especially given that we can't beat any team at the moment, let alone one winning every week. So the idea that we'll steamroll [...]

Premier League campaign over with another draw

There's quite a big caveat in the analysis of yesterday's draw away to Norwich. That caveat is that Freddie Ljungberg has had barely a few hours inputting his ideas into this set of players. So perhaps yesterday's performance still bore the hallmarks of Emery's Arsenal. The caveat that Freddie has had such little time is [...]

Emery’s time is up. But other questions remain.

It's finally happened. Yesterday morning Unai arrived at the training ground to prepare for the Norwich game this weekend and he didn't even get to put the cones out. By the time the first ball was kicked at London Colney he and his Spanish staff had been told that their services were no longer required [...]

The new manager timeline is underway – but will it be Nuno?

There's plenty of chatter going on about Nuno Espírito Santo at the moment. He's the bookies favourite at the moment, in front of Arteta, Allegri and Benitez, the latter two being free agents shortly (Chinese Super League finishes soon) and therefore right up KSE's street if/when they decide time is up for Emery. And it [...]

Nuno to Arsenal talk from nowhere

The chatter about the new manager appears to be hitting up and, as you'd expect, rumours surfacing about Nuno Esperito Santo from Wolves have resulted in his odds being slashed and some bookies no longer taking bets. It feels like we're at the beginning of the end here for Unai Emery and the only question [...]

Morning folks. Last night there was a a statement released by the 'We Care Do You' collective of fans and groups and it highlighted some of the frustrations that I'm sure many of you feel. As part of that group of fans I feel it to and so before I talk about anything else today [...]

End Emery’s tenure. Now.

Morning folks. It's tough to know where to even start today. I've been banging the 'Emery Out' drum for some time now - since Sheffield United away - but it's all feeling a little hollow. On Monday I said on the GunnersTown radio show that 12 points out of four games was a minimum. Southampton [...]

Does any Arsenal player want to play for Unai Emery’s Arsenal any more?

Perhaps inevitably, with Torreira out in Uruguay for his national team, we have him talking to the national Uruguayan press and in the early hours of this morning we got some translated snippets of him echoing the words of his agent. Quite often you find the agent playing the 'bad guy' so the player doesn't [...]
