We had ourselves a press conference yesterday, so Tricky Micky has given me some delicious content to get stuck in to this morning. Always useful on a Friday. First up, the team news and the Lucas Torreira question has been raised after the medical team confirmed he'd suffered a fractured ankle in that scissor challenge [...]

FA Cup thoughts from a gooner: To Schadenfreude or not to Schadenfreude…

I'm trying to work out this morning how hard to go in on the schadenfreude with the scum after they crashed out of the FA Cup on penalties to Norwich last night. I mean on the one hand I want to get stuck in two footed and laugh my t*ts off, but then I think about the [...]

The perfect non-Arsenal football weekend

If you could map out a football weekend this season in which Arsenal don’t play, but you can have a thoroughly enjoyable time, well this weekend has so far been it. Leicester lost on Friday. Chelski drew yesterday. But the biggest ‘tick’ of the weekend was Liverpool being spanked 3-0 by Watford. It means no [...]

Strike early, Arsenal, strike fast

Morning peeps. Happy match day to thee and thine kin. Hopefully it’s an Arsenal-victory flavoured one. A fourth win on the bounced would be rather delicious and tonight provides that opportunity with a home second leg against Olympiakos. We did half of the job in Greece with the late Lacazette strike and with the Greek’s [...]

City future means nothing to Arsenal; Arteta planning all the variables

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 [...]

Arteta tight-lipped on Matvienko, but less so with Ceballos

Morning folks and welcome to another bloody weekend in which Arsenal aren't playing, because we've got a poxy Monday night game going on. It's bloody annoying I can tell thee. But it is what it is and I guess we have to deal with it. I suppose if you're going to look at the positives [...]

Lemar isn’t what we need right now

I'm not going to talk about that result last nights, or the fact it seems they're basically going to go unbeaten, so let's swiftly move on to what's happening with The Arsenal right now. It feels like even the FA Cup is conspiring against us to ruin weekends. Not only do we get enough of [...]

I believe Arteta and his ‘like a new signing’ rhetoric

By |2020-01-10T09:57:23+00:00January 10th, 2020|Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|2 Comments

Morning folks - happy Friday n'all that jazz. Right, let's get down to it, because it was press conference Thursday yesterday and he addressed the assembled media. The good news is that the first thing he said was that he's given a few more ideas to the players following a first full week of training [...]

Arteta’s strong stance on Xhaka, Auba and transfers is welcome

Morning folks. Ahh man, after almost two weeks of not setting an alarm before 8am, to see the wet side of pre 7am isn't fun, that's for sure. Still, at least Arsenal have made it a little more fun this week with a hard fought win against United and much like the intensity, drive and [...]

Mikel Arteta impresses with every presser

Morning folks and a happy Christmas wherever you are. I hope it is spent with loved ones and I hope you enjoy whatever festivities you have planned. Micky Arteta probably will have a token glass raised with the family, but by the sounds of it and judging by the press conference yesterday, it'll be kept [...]
