No Ramsdale for Sheffield United, No Ramsdale for Arsenal, please…

Last night Sheffield United beat Carlisle in the first round of the League Cup and Aaron Ramsdale did not feature. Cue the noises online about an impending transfers and a possible deal to Arsenal, which was shortly followed by a general outpouring of disdain from my social media timelines. Honestly, I don't think there has [...]

Holding out for a Tammy?

You know the rumour I can really get behind on a Tuesday morning in terms of outgoings at the club? Rob Holding to Newcastle for £20million. Ooh dawg now THAT would be a good deal that would make us all raise eyebrows and nod impressively at our back office team trying to secure some exits [...]

Are Arsenal ready for the new season? Is Willock’s exit just the start?

So the two big talking points today then, are: The final televised friendly against the Scum that ended in a 1-0 defeat yesterday lunchtime The impending sale of Joe Willock First, the game itself, which was the final one in the 'Mind' series. We found ourselves on the wrong end of the result and finished [...]

Trippier’s a no; Willock in the hole?

I had a skin full of booze yesterday. So to wake up this morning with a fuzzy head and see that Arsenal are linked with a £34million bid for 30-year-old Kieran Trippier doesn’t help my general state of mind. I just hope this is a ‘we’ve got papers to sell’ rumour because that price and [...]

Grealish deal is now the basepoint, which doesn’t help any club

It's hard to avoid the two major footballing bits of news that broke yesterday evening, even though they aren't Arsenal related. Let's start with the Messi stuff. Barcelona are clearly reaping what they sow with the news that they cannot re-sign Messi, even on reduced wages, because their own mismanagement has resulted in them needing [...]

Must Arsenal hold their nerve in selling players?

T-minus nine days and counting (if you count today) until the kick off to the new season and, as it stands, we're looking at a VERY familiar line up to the one that led us to two consecutive eighth places over the last couple of seasons. That's not going to get too many Arsenal fans [...]

Xhaka contract: Are Arsenal kicking the midfield can down the road?

So it looks like Granit Xhaka is on the verge of "FOUR MORE YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS!" as they say in the ol' US of A when wanting their politicians to stay on. Only this doesn't feel like a groundswell of Arsenal public opinion that will see the Swiss international captain get a slight pay [...]

No Partey MUST mean we Sambi against Brentford

Morning folks. Happy Tuesday n’all that jazz. Hope you and yours are doing fine. We’re at T-minus ten days and counting until the kick of to the Premier League season and I don’t know about you, but I feel a mixture of excitement and trepidation about the season ahead. What isn’t helping is that it [...]

As much goodness and badness: Chelski friendly review

Plenty to chew over from yesterday's 2-2* draw over Chelski at the Emirates, some good, some shall we say 'less so good'. Let's get the less so good stuff out of the way first though, because I'd rather finish today's blog feeling a little more positive, given that it's a Monday morning. Arteta named a [...]

White done. Lautaro next?

There's only one place to start this morning, which is with the official signing of Ben White confirmed by the club. He'll wear the number four shirt and when speaking to the Arsenal fan that interviewed him yesterday, I think he came across really well and he's clearly very happy to be here. It is [...]
