Well, I think it’s fair to say that yesterday afternoon’s home game against Newcastle United ended up being a lot of fun by the time it reached its conclusion, didn’t it? It all started with a curveball. Firstly from Arteta’s first team selection, then by the fact that Newcastle didn’t look as bad as I [...]

Happy matchday fellow Arsenal obsessive. Hope all is good with you? It's blowing a right ol' gail in London; certainly feels like the gods are angry and extracting their revenge. Perhaps that's why they've called this particular storm Dennis. Anyway, apparently it's not impacting the likelihood of the match being called off today apparently and [...]

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 [...]

A provocative title for a Friday morning, I know, but when I was checking my Twitter feed I saw that it was awash with people asking whether or not we'd be in for the French international. He's young, strong, having an excellent season with Leipzig and has one year left on his deal in the [...]

Auba adds to Emery damnation; Smith-Rowe groomed as Özil replacement?

Still nothing really meaty from the club ahead of the weekend's fixture with Newcastle, but that's to be expected give that it's Thursday, as well as the fact it's a home game. Arsène liked to do easy on a Friday, being Spanish Unai preferred them later on in the day, but Arteta has so many [...]

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, [...]

Don’t lose your sh*t over Emery, Gooners, he’s not worth it

With the Arsenal players all out in Dubai talking up how much more fun, enjoyable and together they all are under Arteta compared to Emery, it appears the Spaniard has decided that he will not go quietly into that sweet night, and has been talking with increased frequency on his time at the club. He's [...]

Fostering unity at The Arsenal

I spent most of yesterday hanging and most of Saturday drinking red wine and eating red meat and given there wasn't any Arsenal to think about, it didn't really feel worthwhile blogging about what's going on. Because let's face it; there isn't really anything. I don't count players posting pictures of themselves training as news, [...]

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

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. [...]

Arsenal’s attacking problems aren’t the result of defensive stability

Morning folks. Happy Tuesday and all that jazz. I'm working from home today - benefits of a flexible company - and I've decided that I need a bit of fresh air in the morning. Only the fresh air of London isn't actually that fresh, plus it's pretty cold, so all-in-all it's not as great an [...]
