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 [...]

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 [...]

Pepe edges closer, Mustafi edges further away, but defence questions remain

So we're edging closer towards the Pepe signing as - if rumours are to be believed - he's due for a medical at some stage either today or tomorrow and despite the fact that nothing is secret any more and so we all know chapter and verse about this deal, I'm still excited, and I [...]

Saliba deal surely means we take another look at Bielik or Chambers?

So it appears the William Saliba deal from St Etienne is reaching its final conclusions and I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say "thank gawd". It's dragged on far too much with St Etienne insistent on that loan for an additional season. That's an interesting one I have to say from [...]

Tierney May be coming, but Kroenke will change Arsenal for the worse, so does it matter?

So yesterday's bit of fluff that everyone was getting a little hard over was the possibility of Kieran Tierney possibly joining us from Celtic. As usual there is little other than journalistic licence on certain 'angles' for us to go on; he's been watched by Arsenal for ages and since Wenger was in charge, Emery [...]

Saliba’s potential arrival poses questions for Arsenal now

Morning folks and welcome to another Monday. It's a William Saliba shaped one by the sounds of it and supposedly we are in for him and have finally come to an agreement with his representatives, with just the small matter of St Etienne needing to agree the fee, so in other words the hardest bit [...]

Fixtures are out and it’s all about early momentum for The Arsenal

By |2019-06-13T11:38:05+01:00June 13th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, premier league, Tactics, Unai Emery|0 Comments

So we know how our season next year is going to pan out fixtures-wise, with the first one of the season away to Newcastle on Sunday 11th August. Then it's a home game against Burnley before Liverpool away and the Tiny Totts at home. Hardly the easiest of starts and certainly isn't a series of [...]

Unai to get it right tactically in another big game?

It's a bit of a weird time right now. I'm fighting hard to resist the urge to start having a bit of a deconstruction of this season because it all feels like it's swinging on the pendulum of the Europa League cup final. Win it and we have ourselves a trophy, a spot in the [...]

Auba’s day as we sign off with win at Burnley

Well that's that then. We finally bring an end to this domestic season and whilst I'm not as glad to see the back of it as last year, it's not really ended the way I'd have hoped. In fact, the last few weeks have been pretty turgid domestically and whilst we still have an outside [...]

The most ‘Meh’ weekend in Arsenal’s recent history?

By |2019-05-11T08:59:34+01:00May 11th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Europa League, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

I'm off to Germany this weekend, currently urging in a London airport, waiting for my three hour-delayed flight to get here and I'll be honest with you I really couldn't be bothered to even start today's Arsenal thinking's. Yet here I am, typing away, with possibly one of the most 'meh' Premier League weekend's I [...]
