Morning folks and welcome to another saturday, sadly one without The Arsenal, but at least we can pour over some Arsenal-related news. That's because Eddie Nketiah bagged himself another goal yesterday for the Under-21 England team against Turkey and I must tell you, despite the fact they are all poachers goals and tap ins, this [...]

Morning all and welcome to the day after the night before, in which Arsenal finished the first transfer window since I can remember where Arsenal fans are reasonably happy with the business that has been conducted all summer. Yesterday the arrivals of David Luiz and Kieran Tierney were confirmed in the afternoon and so it [...]

Just a few hours for Arsenal to get it spot on this summer

Morning all. Transfer deadline day. One of the most unsavoury days in the footballing calendar and with the English deadline day finishing at 5pm this afternoon it feels like it's going to be a busy one. Not least because of what's happened all summer. Transfers across the Premier League that are normally done without fuss [...]

Koscielny’s tarnished reputation and the expert way Arsenal dealt with it

By |2019-08-07T07:55:30+00:00August 7th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Defence, gooners, Gunners, pre season, Transfers|2 Comments

So bye-bye Koscielny as yesterday Bordeaux and Arsenal confirmed his switch to the French club after both teams agreed a few thought to be €5million. In today's market and exchange rate it's not too bad for a player who forced the clubs hands through his unprofessionalism and tantrumming by refusing to go on tour to [...]

Arsenal have 48 hours to shuffle the defensive pack

You can tell it's getting closer to the start of a new season because last night I had a dream about Arsenal. There was a mix up at Premier League HQ and we needed up playing West Ham at home on the first game of the season. They didn't tell anybody though and so nobody [...]

Silly goals conceded against Barca; deja vu defending shows signings needed

By |2019-08-05T07:57:58+00:00August 5th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Defence, friendly, pre season, Unai Emery|0 Comments

Final pre season friendly out of the way and, as probably is to be expected, we went to the Nou Camp and came back with a defeat. It's a familiar thing that we've seen before so there won't be too many surprises with that and hey, I've spent all summer saying that the results from [...]

Arsenal need to ship out before they bring in and Coutinho shouldn’t be one that comes in

By |2019-08-03T09:33:13+00:00August 3rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, Defence, friendly, pre season, Unai Emery|0 Comments

So we have our first bit of significant cash coming in as Krystian Bielik becomes a Derby player for around £10million, as well as Takuma Asano heading off to Partizan Belgrade for £1million, meaning that we made a £2.5million loss on a player who essentially went out on loan for the whole of his Arsenal [...]

Arsenal’s statement of intent now needs execution on the pitch

Well it finally happened yesterday and despite the fact I'd been lamenting all transfers, how they weren't a surprise and how numb I feel like I'd got in the whole process, I still gorged myself on the glorious glorious content that the club put out throughout the day. I can't help myself. I must also [...]

Stuttering youth performance against Angers

So we have ourselves enough leaked news and people (like the Lille chairman) talking about Nicolas Pepe's move to The Arsenal, that we know it's happening, we just haven't had it confirmed yet. No doubt the game against Angers was an overriding factor in the announcement not happening. Arsenal had enough stuff to talk about [...]

Pepe’s old news by now, but what about our back line movements?

By |2019-07-31T07:09:55+00:00July 31st, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, pre season|1 Comment

When it comes to the exciting Nicolas Pepe story, we've had it all now, haven't we? Yesterday he was pictured in an Arsenal shirt as leaked footage emerged of him tapping the shirt and with that we know something will happen today officially but, as is the way of the modern social media world, it [...]
