It feels like the Arsenal wheels are turning – the excitement starts to build here

So the wheels seem to be in motion. Well, they've been in motion for a while on the players who are on the verge of exits - Sambi and Nuno - but this will be another sale by the club and I guess ultimately it all adds up. Sambi is off on a loan which [...]

The ‘no mans land’ part of the football calendar

Ahh man, there really is bugger all on today from a football perspective, that's for sure, with the Euro's final not on until Sunday, The Arsenal not on for a few weeks on from that, plus the only real transfer news going on is stuff we've already been privy too, like Lokonga, Calafiore and Tavares. [...]

The importance of pre-season prep work for The Arsenal

Morning folks, we all good? Well, as good as we can be given there's no football on at the moment and The Arsenal are still a solid six week's away until the proper stuff starts to kick in. I thought about going along to one of the friendlies we've got penned in for the beginning [...]

Here’s why the timing of fixtures DOES matter for The Arsenal

By |2024-06-19T08:50:26+01:00June 19th, 2024|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, pre season, premier league|0 Comments

I was torn in between two minds yesterday, as I didn't get time to write some random musings until around 8.30am, but then gave up because whatever I thought/said would be superseded by the announcement yesterday of the fixtures that have come out. Cue all of us pouring over each game, when the 'big ticket' [...]

The Sesko situation shows the delicate balance Arsenal are in

There's a fair few people on the internets and social medias today who are a little sad about the whole Benjamin Sesko stuff. I feel like there's been a little bit of 'reading between the lines' from a few journo's though and, without wanting to come across as a completely smug d*ck, I kind of [...]

Shrewd Arsenal making Raya and Patino moves

I was pretty confused when I first heard about the Raya links. I couldn't understand why we were dropping close to £30million on a guy who will not start the season and may not be able to break through if Ramsdale has a stormer this season. And why were KSE/the Arsenal board willing to drop [...]

We need to string the Turner sale out until Friday late afternoon…

Looks as though the Matt Turner to Forest deal will be going through sooner rather than later and, with us playing them on Saturday lunchtime, it'd be weird if it happened sooner and he plays in between the sticks at the Emirates for the away team, eh? I've just had a look at the Forest [...]

A nice little cup in the sunshine for The Arsenal

Morning all - how we all doing after yesterday's late Community Shield drama, eh? I thought it was a very interesting display in the end; plenty for us to chew over and whilst it wasn't exactly a barnstorming game, it was a fascinating one that will have had all of the tacticos salivating over two teams [...]

A semi competitive game to prep us for the real stuff next week – City in the Community Shield

I'm going to let you 'in behind the curtain' a little here and level with you, these words were written yesterday (Saturday), as I knew that I would be rather hungover and probably in no mood to sit at my computer and tap away at the keyboard for 20 minutes whilst trying to prepare myself [...]

Arteta’s pre City comments; the most perfect Balogun ‘clause’ for Inter

I'll be dammed if the cat didn't decide to sit on my chest at 4am this morning and aggressively purr into my face for about 45 minutes. So I'm up at 6.20 to let the little bugger out and I thought I might as well start typing some Arsenal related waffle a little earlier than [...]
