Morning folks and welcome to another Monday. It's a William Saliba shaped one by the sounds of it and supposedly we are in for him and have finally come to an agreement with his representatives, with just the small matter of St Etienne needing to agree the fee, so in other words the hardest bit [...]

Fixtures are out and it’s all about early momentum for The Arsenal

So we know how our season next year is going to pan out fixtures-wise, with the first one of the season away to Newcastle on Sunday 11th August. Then it's a home game against Burnley before Liverpool away and the Tiny Totts at home. Hardly the easiest of starts and certainly isn't a series of [...]

Carrasco and Nelson can (and should) be in the same team

Last night as The Management was doing a fitness video I decided to undertake a bit of channel surfing and, upon landing on the sports section on Sky TV, I found a host of international games going on. My general malaise over all things internationals clearly extends beyond the boundaries of the domestic football season, [...]

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 [...]

How desperate are Arsena to win the Europa League?

This is it then. A whole season distilled down to one football match in which the success or failure will be viewed. All through the prism of a European Cup final. I've seen one in my lifetime, witnessed three heartbreaking ones, so I'm very aware of our record in Europe and very aware that this [...]

Fraser is worth a punt if the price is right

Morning Gooners. Happy Saturday. Not long now until we find out whether this season is a busted flush or glorious chapter in the clubs' history. But whilst many of us are starting to focus on the Europa League, there are still transfer speculations going on and the one that appears to be properly hotting up [...]

Boring cup finals and scary European ones

A quick one on Man City before I go in to the Arsenal spiel as usual today; their victory confirming the first ever domestic treble was certainly warranted. They are the best team this season by a mile and you have to respect the squad of players and Pep Guardiola for achieving the feat. However, [...]

Unai to get it right tactically in another big game?

It's a bit of a weird time right now. I'm fighting hard to resist the urge to start having a bit of a deconstruction of this season because it all feels like it's swinging on the pendulum of the Europa League cup final. Win it and we have ourselves a trophy, a spot in the [...]
