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. [...]

Southgate’s tactical approach makes me happy we’ve got Arteta

Much like last Thursday and Friday last week, it's all gone deathly quiet and, with there being no Euro's like last Thursday and Friday as well as no real Arsenal news to speak of, it's becoming quite slim pickings indeed out there in the football universe. Last week I wasn't fussed because it was a [...]

Saliba the bossman once again, as Arsenal are linked to an Italian defender

By |2024-07-02T09:06:51+01:00July 2nd, 2024|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Internationals, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Having spent the weekend at Glastonbury and not getting any signal to watch the Euro's other than the England game on Sunday (I managed to use the Management's work phone through some of jiggery pokery), I managed to get to watch both of the games yesterday and so feel like I'm back on track with [...]

Big Bill and that spurious Barca link

L:et's start of this morning with a little chuckle at this story that've seen this morning, suggesting that Barcelona are plotting an 'ambitious' bid for William Saliba. I'm sure Barca love the look of Big Bill - who wouldn't given he's just come off of another season in which he's proven himself to be one [...]

Doing VAR properly

I want to talk a little about VAR today, particularly the application in the Euro's right now, but before I do that, let's spare a thought and metaphorically pour out a little liquor for Kieran Tierney's Euro2024 campaign, which basically died last night as he was stretchered off for another injury sustained in a career [...]

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get time to write some random musings until around 8.30am, but then gave up because whatever I thought/said would be superseded by the announcement yesterday of the fixtures that have come out.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 [...]

Sporting integrity must prevail

Morning all - hope you're all good? I'm back from a week-and-a-half sunning myself and whilst I haven't bothered picking up the proverbial internet online quill to pen some thoughts, I've been following all the bits and bobs that have been happening in the Arsenal and football world over the last week or so. As [...]

Arsenal’s attack that surprised us all in the end

Happy Saturday people, from a warm garden in the Algarve. Today I thought I'd have a think and muse about our forward line and, of allof the functions in our side, it's the one that is the most intriguing when you think about how the season unfolded. For the first half of the season I [...]

A midfield of consistency at The Arsenal

By |2024-05-24T08:28:37+01:00May 24th, 2024|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, midfield, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Yesterday I went through the defence, so today I thought I'd do some musing over our midfield. Yesterday I also gave an honourable mention to Declan Rice, because I do truly believe that the trio of Gabriel, Saliba and Rice are the main reason as to why we were so miserly in conceding goals, but [...]
