Balance at Arsenal – players adapt or formation adapts?

Happy Saturday folks. It's one of many this season in which Arsenal aren't playing but yesterday Unai spoke to the official site about the game tomorrow and there's a word he said a few times that keeps ringing in my head as I compose some of my usual garbled thoughts this morning: Balance. Unai spoke [...]

Ivan gone, Arsenal can move on

Welly welly welly. Wellington wellington wellington. Welbz Welbz Welbz. After much speculation and after the initial scoop by Arseblog on Monday evening, we had confirmation from the club that Ivan Gazidis will depart Arsenal for AC Milan from the end of October and despite the statement from Sir Chips that Ivan isn't leaving only a [...]

Season reboot after difficult start – an opportunity for Emery

Two days after the defensive shambles that was Stamford Bridge and still the result is stinging a bit, but after a day of boozing for the parents Ruby wedding anniversary, plus reading the views of the players and other Arsenal fans, in pleased that we all seem a little more chilled about a second defeat [...]

Ivan’s at ChampMan again; Elneny offski?

I wonder if Ivan, Raoul and Sven have been playing Football Manager over the summer, because that's the only fathomable explanation why they've decided to issue a 'not-quite-official' declaration that Unai Emery's job is safe. There were a few reputable places online reporting it yesterday and when I read it whilst on my way to [...]

Arsenal wrapping up transfer business before tours is nectar

Morning folks! How y'all doing? It's good times for me, on account of this unusually warm weather we've got in the UK, which is what us Brits have always said we'd find absolutely acceptable in the summer given we have to go through drizzle, grey and grim sh*t for most of the year. The sun [...]

Mustafi is out the Arsenal door and ‘double jeopardy’ rule is a farce

Holiday over for me, a week in the sun of Italy and wouldn't you know it, they're not really making a big deal of the competition in Naples? Huh, who'd have thunk it? I could probably talk to you about all of the different Arsenal-related stuff that has gone on whilst I'm away but no [...]

Arsenal have a transfer plan and it’s delicious

It all feels very efficient at Arsenal at the moment, doesn't it? I mean, it's almost as if we've known our weaknesses, known where we are in the pecking order, known who will improve us, so now we're going out and getting them. It's refreshing. The plan appears clear and yesterday whilst we were unable [...]

Sokratis Senior spills the beans

So it looks like 'Mr Socko' (little WWF reference for all you old school wrestling fans) is on his way to The Arsenal after his father...erm...Passthepoddodomolous Senior...said on a Greek radio station that it'll happen tomorrow. Which I can now confirm is officially today. It's one of those moves where Sokratis himself will probably be [...]

Rambo and Huss have a date; Sven and Ousmane too?

Well it seems Rambo is getting the positive vibes following the appointment of our new man Emery. He's been talking after a pointless game for Wales in the US against Mexico and said he 'can't wait' to get back to Arsenal to see how this exciting new era starts. We all feel the same Aaron. [...]
