Top Four, VAR and Balogun: all a bit too much

By |2021-03-05T08:01:44+00:00March 5th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Happy Friday to you and your kin. I hope you are feeling fantabulous? More fantabulous than me no doubt, whose feline friend has discovered how to open does and so has taken to jumping on mine and The Management's bed at 5.30am in the morning to say 'hi'. But such is life, we just have [...]

Can Arsenal lay a glove on Man City?

We had ourselves a video update from the manager yesterday ahead of the home game against Man City on Sunday and, as expected, Mikel Arteta was more than happy to wax lyrical about the team he was coach at just over a year ago. Of course all the way up there in Manchester we also [...]

UEFA preserve no ‘integrity of the competition’ in Arsenal’s case

By |2021-02-17T07:40:39+00:00February 17th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Europa League, Mikel Arteta, press conference, Rant|0 Comments

I didn't watch any Champions League football last night, but I have seen the gifts that Liverpool were so generously offered by RB Leipzig last night, as well as the borderline free handout that the referee tried to leg up on Barcelona in their game against PSG. Honestly, when you see that given as a [...]

Momentum, injuries and Balogun – a few Arteta press conference thoughts

Morning folks, hope you're all good, albeit rather chilly if you're in the UK like I am. My soft desk-jockey exterior wasn't cut out for anything other than mild incremental weather and so the fact that it is in the minus here in London isn't exactly conducive to me being at my most productive. So [...]

Luiz, Tierney and Arsenal controlling themselves

By |2021-02-05T08:42:43+00:00February 5th, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|1 Comment

Morning all. It's Friday and I'm still irked about what happened on Tuesday night. What about you? I suppose some of that also has to do with the fact that yesterday early evening the FA released a statement to say that David Luiz's appeal for his red card was ignored. I don't think any of [...]

Arsenal hold the transfer cards; maybe a start for Odegaard?

By |2021-02-01T08:02:13+00:00February 1st, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference, Transfers|0 Comments

Morning folks. Another Monday comes rolling around but unlike most Monday's, this one has the hyperbole of being labelled 'Transfer Deadline Day', which means Sky Sports go nuts all wearing silly yellow ties and dresses, they talk a little faster on Sky Sports News, they inject some kind of faux urgency into a day that is [...]

Moles and Odegaard: Arteta has his say

By |2021-01-22T06:51:25+00:00January 22nd, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, press conference, Transfers|0 Comments

We've had ourselves a press conference yesterday ahead of the FA Cup game tomorrow and Mikel had plenty to say on a number of different things, including some of the exits that we've had, with Sokratis getting the platitudes, as well as Mesut - to an extent anyway. He has obviously said nice things about [...]

Arteta wants a weekend away from Arsenal too

By |2021-01-16T09:08:07+00:00January 16th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Mikel obviously wanted a weekend without Arsenal as well after that snoozefest on Thursday night, because he did his pre match presser then and yesterday we got the video and transcription on the official site ahead of the game on Monday night against Newcastle. The good news is that Kieran Tierney isn’t going to be [...]

Does Arteta need to publicly praise form players more? And what was the Runarsson ‘plan’?

By |2021-01-12T08:11:30+00:00January 12th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Perhaps somewhat surprisingly Mikel Arteta held his press conference ahead of the Palace game on Thursday. Normally it is a day or two before the match itself but I wonder if he just wanted to 'get it out of the way' so he could focus on the challenge that Palace provide us this week. After [...]

Ozil saga reaches the end, as Arsenal turn to the Bank for help

Morning peeps. Happy Friday! How did that come around so quickly? I don't know if it's the same for you, but my first work week has absolutely flown by and I've got to be honest with you, I'm pretty glad about that, because: I've also given up booze I'm currently trying to shift Christmas pounds [...]
