Some dudes are linked to Arsenal

And today's latest conversations on the Arsenal transfer speculation pile include: Two lads from Sampdoria A Russian lad who scored against us last season A French kid nobody had heard of this time last year Liam Neeson's character from 'Taken'* *not actual Liam Neeson. The guy from the movie he played in. Last Action Hero [...]

Arsenal aren’t bringing enjoyment any more

This last few days has been some of the longest times I've not blogged since I started this website up around ten years ago. I don't tend to do it too much when I'm on holiday, usually because I'm hanging and not waking up until after 10, but this time around there is no such [...]

Stan and Ivan could have driven Arsenal into mediocrity

It's that time of the year again: David Ornstein's time. The BBC journalist's click through rate goes through the roof during transfer crazy season and it sounds like he's been wheeled out again, from some of the rumblings I've heard, not many of them good. I don't have any links because I think what he [...]

The most ‘Meh’ weekend in Arsenal’s recent history?

By |2019-05-11T08:59:34+01:00May 11th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Europa League, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

I'm off to Germany this weekend, currently urging in a London airport, waiting for my three hour-delayed flight to get here and I'll be honest with you I really couldn't be bothered to even start today's Arsenal thinking's. Yet here I am, typing away, with possibly one of the most 'meh' Premier League weekend's I [...]

Arsenal’s lack of athleticism causing this slump?

Looks like it's time to start booking in those caves in remote far-flung destinations of the word because if the Totts beat Ajax to the final tonight then it won't be a final I'll be wanting to watch or know the result of. I'm already on a personal social media lockdown after last night's capitulation [...]

Domestic bottle job complete with pathetic draw to Brighton

Well, yesterday was a total shambles, eh? Although there was an outside chance we might be able to qualify for Champions League yesterday, those Arsenal players contrived to blow it, picking up just one point against a Brighton team who literally had nothing to play for, had probably spent the night partying and would have [...]

Suarez farce: should we be worried about the way the club is run?

By |2019-04-30T07:36:35+01:00April 30th, 2019|Arsenal FC, finances, Ownership and the board, Rant, Transfers, Unai Emery|2 Comments

So after four appearances, 67 minutes of football, little impression made and probably a fair chunk of wages spent, Denis Suarez makes his way back to Barcelona after confirming an injury that will keep him out for the rest of the season. It's pretty terrible news at the end of a nine day period in [...]

Leicester: that’s top four out for Arsenal’s bottlers

Let's not hide behind any kind of faux injustice brought about by Ainsley Maitland-Niles' sending off in the first half yesterday: this Arsenal team was probably defeated before it even took to the field. Nine goals conceded in three games against three opponents who have nothing to play for other than some additional points on [...]

We don’t spread our scoring around enough at Arsenal

I really like it when Arsenal and the players go in to media lockdown and blackout after a poor result. After a couple of results like we've had this week the last thing I want to see if Alex Iwobi channelling his inner Johan Djourou with a "we have to move on" statement post the [...]
