Before I start talking about the press conference and some of the more interesting parts of it for me yesterday, I thought I'd just mention Arsenal's campaign against knife crime that was released yesterday, with a video and also confirmation that Arsenal will wear an all white kit for the game against Nottingham Forest in [...]

Morning all and welcome to Friday. Hope you're all feeling good? I had to take the first of my lateral flow 'countdown to Christmas' tests this morning. I didn't go to West Ham on Wednesday because I didn't want to risk it, plus the fact I was in the Tollington on Saturday and it was [...]

The Aubameyang problem rears its head ahead of Southampton game

It's match day and whilst the focus should be on who are the best and fittest players available to be selected today to try to get us back on track and winning at home to Southampton, unfortunately we are once again dealing with some problems in the Arsenal camp, or at least what looks like [...]

Arteta still learning

I watched the 30 minute video on Mikel Arteta this morning. He talked a lot about 'unity' and his time so far as he approaches 100 games tomorrow and I thought it was a nice piece from Amy Lawrence who interviewed him. I'm losing track about the number of times I've said how strong his [...]

Arteta giving nothing away ahead of derby day

Arteta did his press conference yesterday and as you'd probably expect, he gave nothing away when asked about who will start tomorrow - despite many attempts at probing! He was asked about who starts in goal on Sunday. Nothing. He was asked about who plays up front and if Lacazette's future is an issue. Nothing. [...]

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 [...]
