Is the Arsenal squad getting more balance about it?

Welcome to another Monday folks. I watched yesterday's game between Chelski and Leicester and although I found myself chuckling in to my lamb shank I'd prepared for evening meal, upon reflection I shouldn't have been chuckling as hearty, because Leicester are no mugs and they'll pick up plenty of points this season. They play decent [...]

Questions in defence and midfield, loads of options up top for The Arsenal against Burnley

This feels like the proper start to the season for me today. I picked up a fresh set of home and away kits and will be rocking my beautiful red and white Adidas Arsenal shirt in the ground today for the first game of the season. I'm right back there. Right back to the obsession [...]

Emery’s new signing selection dilemma

Happy Friday all. I have a slightly sore head, what with Thursday being the new Friday and my working running a 'welcome to the company' drinks for all of the new people that have recently joined the business (of which I am one). It's great fun, is midweek drinking, until you wake up the next [...]

Iwobi needed a reboot, we need a new captain

Alex Iwobi opens up and tells Sky Sports that he's always been seen as the youngster and now wants to set his own agenda. Fair play to him I see and having experienced something similar in my working life I can kind of understand why he might want to try something else. I worked for [...]

Can Chambers replicate Holding from last season?

We're only one week in to the new season and after a decent enough defensive display against Newcastle (even if we were relatively untroubled) thoughts are immediately turning to Burnley at the weekend. But, more importantly, who plays against Burnley at the heart of our defence, because I'd make it a little more difficult to [...]

Stop the Newcastle long ball supply line today, Arsenal

It's the first game day of the season and like I said yesterday, despite feeling like I'm done with football in May, here we are in August and I'm right back in the game. An away trip to Newcastle it is for our lads and with the new signings probably not all 100% ready, I [...]

Just a few hours for Arsenal to get it spot on this summer

Morning all. Transfer deadline day. One of the most unsavoury days in the footballing calendar and with the English deadline day finishing at 5pm this afternoon it feels like it's going to be a busy one. Not least because of what's happened all summer. Transfers across the Premier League that are normally done without fuss [...]

Arsenal’s statement of intent now needs execution on the pitch

Well it finally happened yesterday and despite the fact I'd been lamenting all transfers, how they weren't a surprise and how numb I feel like I'd got in the whole process, I still gorged myself on the glorious glorious content that the club put out throughout the day. I can't help myself. I must also [...]

What’s going on at right back for Arsenal?

So we have a Sunday morning in which there's an Emirates Cup on the horizon later on this afternoon and probably a little more Pepe chatter until something breaks like a 'spotted at Arsenal' or 'medical set for x date' or something similar. After my later post yesterday there was some noises about PSG possibly [...]

Madness against Madrid; empty seats against Lyon?

As I've been saying all summer there's very little that you can take from these friendly matches other than who's at what stage of their development, but it looked like it was one heck of a crazy game against Madrid last night, especially when you have sendings off in friendlies. I didn't watch the match [...]
