Well here we are, back to the proper football weekend's, which also means some words of wisdom from our young manager. Mikel Arteta had his press conference yesterday and talked about the proposed bust up of Luiz and Ceballos, the international breaks, as well as team news ahead of the weekend as we show down [...]

Arteta’s Premier League options – five subs or not

By |2020-11-07T09:22:50+00:00November 7th, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So we had ourselves a press conference from the boss yesterday and that included a raft of questions from the assembled press on the Zoom call. He was asked about team news and the good news appears that we haven't picked up any knocks from Thursday night, so that's good. With games coming thick and [...]

Have you bought in to Project Arteta?

Afternoon folks and welcome to another weekend, this one on the eve of what feels like it might be #Lockdown2 in the UK unfortunately. It's going to be another tough winter and for those who are struggling to look for a new job, like Huss Fahmy, it might be a difficult Christmas. Yes indeed, the [...]

Partey to be ‘unshackled’ against City tomorrow?

By |2020-10-16T08:01:15+01:00October 16th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Morning all, happy Friday and a big 'hooray!' to the fact that the international break is behind us, most certainly confirmed by the pre-match presser that Arteta did via Zoom yesterday. I have to say kudos to the man himself because, if I was in his position, I'd be pretty livid at the farcical fact [...]

Wishing away the transfer window; Saliba, Torreira and Aouar are key

Morning folks and happy Saturday to you. Just 24 and a bit hours until we play Sheffield United, then 48 hours and a bit until the dreadful transfer window closes and I don't know about you, but this is when football becomes more tiresome. I joined Twitter in February 2010 to meet other Arsenal fans [...]

Arteta won’t rise to the bait ahead of the NLD

By |2020-07-11T08:16:34+01:00July 11th, 2020|Arsenal, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|1 Comment

Press conferences always give a little bit of a nugget of info about the upcoming game, but the press don't usually use it to gain some kind of insight into how the clubs might tactically set up, instead using it as an opportunity to stoke the fires of possible discontent and rivalry between managers. So [...]

Auba, Guendouzi and Leicester – Monday musings

By |2020-07-06T09:00:13+01:00July 6th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, contracts, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference, Transfers|0 Comments

Happy Monday peeps. Yesterday I had a stinking hangover, so didn’t compile any thoughts on the Wolves result, but I gotta tell ya I was mighty impressed I have to say. It was the first ‘statement victory’ that we have had under Arteta and no wonder he had such a beaming smile afterwards. I know [...]

Arteta’s confidence (on Auba and more) will transmit to this Arsenal team

By |2020-07-03T07:58:44+01:00July 3rd, 2020|Arsenal Manager, contracts, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So we had Tricky Micky Arteta's press conference yesterday rather than today, which means we have something to stick our teeth into before this working week is done, which is nice. It must also mean that the team are making their moves up north today I'd imagine; probably because they got so lambasted by the [...]

Mikel’s Ozil stance is bang on, as is the clubs’ Luiz stand

By |2020-06-19T07:37:51+01:00June 19th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, contracts, Defence, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Morning folks and welcome to the end of another week. It's all gone a bit Pete Tong for me this week because, having had to suffer through the debacle up at City - inspired by our clumsy Brazilian centre half - last night I spilt boiling hot vegetable oil on my fingers, so this morning [...]

Arteta’s presser shows us a statesman

By |2020-06-16T07:58:54+01:00June 16th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Hold the phone, we have ourselves a press conference, which means football has never felt closer! And I'm giddy like a little schoolchild. So perhaps I should take some time to hold my hands up and admit that I didn't think I'd feel this excited when the lockdown and postponement was of the Premier League [...]
