So, we have ourselves an enforced two week hiatus from The Arsenal, as yesterday the Premier League confirmed that the league will shut down until 4th April. It’s an admission of just how serious the Coronavirus is from a contagious point of view and I don’t think there are many people out there who would [...]

City future means nothing to Arsenal; Arteta planning all the variables

The big story of yesterday obviously doesn't include The Arsenal, but as always, when you hear a story the likes of the City one and the magnitude of it you start to apply your own thoughts relating to your own club. My first thoughts were "is Champions League now more attainable if fifth place gets [...]

The Wednesday lull before Arsenal content kicks in again ahead of Sunday's game against Newcastle... **tumbleweed rolls by** There ent a lot going on right now. I mean, when the noises of a 'battle between Arsenal and Spurs' are being reported in relation to who's going to host the next Anthony Joshua fight takes place, [...]

Arteta’s mini pre-season; all eyes on the return fixtures

By |2020-02-07T07:28:45+00:00February 7th, 2020|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, pre season, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

This morning, I be mostly thinking about....mini pre seasons. We're in one right now. It's a winter break in which Arteta has taken the lads out to Dubai to bond, talk tactics, probably look at opponents and most likely give a little bit of a reset on what has happened over the last six weeks. [...]

Eddie’s fine start and Pepe’s sensible management

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+01:00August 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 [...]

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

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 [...]
