Aubameyang to PSG has me going all amateur accountant

I feel a bit dirty this morning. Not physically dirty, but mentally dirty, because I went on the hunt for some Arsenal content this morning and started clicking on transfer-related links from the click baitey gutter press. It was pretty, it wasn't fun, I didn't enjoy it and so the foray into the murky world [...]

No touching, no contact, no fans and no fun – aren’t we all gonna love the new Premier League?

By |2020-05-19T08:34:17+01:00May 19th, 2020|Arsenal FC, History, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Rant|1 Comment

The Premier League is fast becoming a bit of a farce, isn't it? I mean here we are just having learned about 'Project Restart' a couple of weeks ago, with the Premier League given the green light to apparently start integrating players into small groups so they can train as a collective, and then we [...]

Football kits, memories and costs – something’s gotta give

Morning folks. Well, here you have it, it's a lockdown in the UK which means no more going outside at all unless you're exercising. I have a supermarket - a big one - opposite me and already this morning I've seen people queuing to get themselves inside the store to buy their essentials. Strap yourselves [...]

Unprofessional Arsenal crash out of Europe

That was a disgrace of a performance last night. It was an example in arrogance and this morning I am still pretty raw with rage from what I saw last night. Because what I saw was an Arsenal team that broke one of the fundamental laws of any kind of competition: Never underestimate your opponent. [...]

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)

By |2020-01-20T07:52:37+00:00January 20th, 2020|Arsenal FC, premier league, Rant, referees|7 Comments

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 [...]
