Don’t lose your sh*t over Emery, Gooners, he’s not worth it

With the Arsenal players all out in Dubai talking up how much more fun, enjoyable and together they all are under Arteta compared to Emery, it appears the Spaniard has decided that he will not go quietly into that sweet night, and has been talking with increased frequency on his time at the club. He's [...]

Arsenal are being shafted by inept officiating (this isn’t a conspiracy theory)

It's so maddening that every single team fighting for Champions League places this season are tripping up on a weekly basis. It was the same yesterday with Leicester and Man United. I can't quite work out whether or not it's because the league isn't as good as it once was in terms of the top [...]

We don’t take advantage at Arsenal

Morning folks. It's a good job this season is an utter write off, because otherwise we'd be proper fumin', eh? I am, of course, talking about the the complete bore-fest that was yesterday's 1-1 draw with a pretty average Sheffield Unite dream yesterday. They're average because apart from discipline, shape and a scrappy goal bouncing [...]

Usmanov’s Everton investment casts more shadows on KSE

I guess you can't really call it Arsenal news, but given that Alisher Usmanov was a shareholder at Arsenal until recently, it has a bit of Arsenal related to it, and certainly I think it has implications for the Premier League. Because Everton confirmed last night that Usmanov has invested £30million in naming rights for [...]

Some good, some bad, some awful (refereeing decisions) – Arsenal v Chelsea

I'm still trying to work out how I feel about yesterday's defeat to Chelski on our own patch. I mean, obviously I'm annoyed, but it feels like it's tempered somewhat with some of the situations that occurred during the match. Last night I lay in bed and at one point I was both pissed off [...]

Arsenal players disillusioned? Now they know how we feel!

Morning folks. It's wet, it's dark, it doesn't really feel like my last day in the office before Christmas and I'm hanging a little. Everything's a little fuzzy and vague. A bit like an Arsenal transfer pursuit - be it manager or player! We seem to enjoy having the worst kept secrets, don't we? I [...]

Arsenal fans show players how it’s done – Man City review

The only 'non-depressing' thing about yesterday's 3-0 defeat at home to Man City yesterday was the act of defiance that came at the end of the game. Not by the players of course and not by Mesut Özil who displayed more energy kicking a water bottle than for the rest of the game (although all [...]

End Emery’s tenure. Now.

Morning folks. It's tough to know where to even start today. I've been banging the 'Emery Out' drum for some time now - since Sheffield United away - but it's all feeling a little hollow. On Monday I said on the GunnersTown radio show that 12 points out of four games was a minimum. Southampton [...]

Does any Arsenal player want to play for Unai Emery’s Arsenal any more?

Perhaps inevitably, with Torreira out in Uruguay for his national team, we have him talking to the national Uruguayan press and in the early hours of this morning we got some translated snippets of him echoing the words of his agent. Quite often you find the agent playing the 'bad guy' so the player doesn't [...]
