Arteta’s straight bat is good for me

Mikel had his pre-Burnley press conference yesterday and as is the way these days, he said some things that I'll be darned if I don't end up getting excited when I hear him talk. I know football is about what is on the pitch,  I know that the football has not been great for a [...]

Arteta talks a great game – we need it on the pitch NOW

Morning party people, happy Friday! Let's hope that this weekend might bring that most precious of things: goals and three points to The Arsenal! I don't know why I'm starting off today's blog with such unbridled positivity, because I've woken up at 5.15am and I feel absolutely shattered. Plus there's a leaving party at my [...]

Arteta bright-eyed and batting off Aubameyang speculation

No messing around from Arteta yesterday, was there? What I mean by that was he dropped a press conference in the morning following what will have been a late night on the Wednesday. I left pretty much after the final whistle on Wednesday and I got home at half 12, so they must have got [...]

Does the COVID excuse wash for Arteta?

Martin Odegaard officially confirmed yesterday, Aaron Ramsdale also confirmed and with that, they instantly get my full backing and hope that we succeed with them in the short, medium and long term. We can all have questions over the signings but now they are here you have to be happy that they are and I [...]

Nearly halfway in to the transfer window – is anyone else starting to be concerned?

I didn't watch the game against Hibs on Tuesday and so didn't actually manage to catch some individual performances. So the sight yesterday of a slightly rounder Willian on the pitch, with various pictures of him looking visibly chubbier as he faced off against the Scottish team, would be utterly hilarious, if it wasn't so [...]

Arteta’s ‘hurt’ and the need for swift summer action from Monday

By |2021-05-22T08:52:09+01:00May 22nd, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, finances, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Mikel Arteta talked to the assembled press yesterday and I have to say I thought he talked about a whole manner of things that were interesting to try to read between the lines. So much so that I actually think more was debated about 'other stuff' than the actual Brighton game itself. Which to be [...]

How could Arsenal possibly be in with a shout of European football??

Morning folks and happy Friday to you and yours. Hope you've been basking the relentless pursuit of victory that Arsenal now seem to have decided on embarking on. Wins against Palace, Chelski, West Brom and Newcastle means that bizarrely (and potentially unfortunately), we see an opportunity for Arsenal to potentially be playing football in the [...]

My mind is clouded on Arteta

Morning folks. There's been a whole additional 24 hours that have elapsed since the pathetic and limp exit to Villareal in the Europa League and I gotta tell you folks, I feel a lot better in my own head, compared to how I have done over the years.  Not about Arsenal and the position they [...]

Tierney’s availability the mind game for Emery?

One day to go until the real nerves kick in, eh? And I do mean REALLY kicking in, because it feels like this game has become even more essential in terms of the potential future of Arsenal; another Sliding Doors moment for the whole team, manager and everyone associated. There were even some pretty spurious rumours [...]
