Morning folks. Looks like we're in for a left back then. An injury prone left back. A left back who has not been getting in to the PSG team and with whom the home fans are supposedly happy to see the back of. Doesn't exactly want the cockles of your heart, does it? The fact [...]

The importance of that Edu/Arteta relationship is massive

Morning friends and happy Saturday to you. It's an FA Cup weekend and in my opinion it's the best FA Cup weekend - cup final day aside if you're in it - of all of the round. It's the one in which all the Premier League teams feature, there's a shedload of games going on, [...]

Arteta’s strong stance on Xhaka, Auba and transfers is welcome

Morning folks. Ahh man, after almost two weeks of not setting an alarm before 8am, to see the wet side of pre 7am isn't fun, that's for sure. Still, at least Arsenal have made it a little more fun this week with a hard fought win against United and much like the intensity, drive and [...]

Mikel Arteta impresses with every presser

Morning folks and a happy Christmas wherever you are. I hope it is spent with loved ones and I hope you enjoy whatever festivities you have planned. Micky Arteta probably will have a token glass raised with the family, but by the sounds of it and judging by the press conference yesterday, it'll be kept [...]

Mkhitarayn’s exit spells opportunities for youth

By |2019-09-03T09:13:01+00:00September 3rd, 2019|Arsenal Transfers, Attack, Transfers, Unai Emery, youth|0 Comments

Well I have to say well played to Raul Sanllehi once again because even though we all thought our business was done for the season both in and out, he pulled out another little surprise with the agreement that Henrikh Mkhitaryan is now a Roma player following a deadline day move. It's a move that, [...]

I question the timing of Monreal’s Arsenal exit

I get that Nacho Monreal is of an age where his stock is falling somewhat. I understand that we've see. A decline in his levels of reliability that we have had for so many years. It's why the club went out and got Kieran Tierney and had the Scot not been injured having recently had [...]

Joining the super agents bus – both in selling & buying

Morning friends. Football friends. Compatriots who share the same love as me: lovers of The Arsenal. It's midweek and we still might have three days to go until football returns, but the stories keep dropping relating to The Arsenal or, in this case relating to Jeff Reine-Adelaide. He should be netting Arsenal just under €3million [...]

Morning all and welcome to the day after the night before, in which Arsenal finished the first transfer window since I can remember where Arsenal fans are reasonably happy with the business that has been conducted all summer. Yesterday the arrivals of David Luiz and Kieran Tierney were confirmed in the afternoon and so it [...]

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 [...]

Koscielny’s tarnished reputation and the expert way Arsenal dealt with it

By |2019-08-07T07:55:30+00:00August 7th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Defence, gooners, Gunners, pre season, Transfers|2 Comments

So bye-bye Koscielny as yesterday Bordeaux and Arsenal confirmed his switch to the French club after both teams agreed a few thought to be €5million. In today's market and exchange rate it's not too bad for a player who forced the clubs hands through his unprofessionalism and tantrumming by refusing to go on tour to [...]
