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 [...]

Morning folks. You know how they say "slow news day?" When there's the square root of b*gger all going on I. The Arsenal world? Well, I think it's safe to say that yesterday was not one of those days! First we had the confirmation of Ceballos and Saliba from the club and with it cake [...]

Questions to be asked at Arsenal fan Q&A, which won’t be solved by signing announcements today

Today there is a fan Q & A at The Emirates in which Raul Sanllehi and a few other Arsenal representatives will sit in front of a selection of fans to discuss the recent history and upcoming future of Arsenal. It's something Arsenal have done for many years and is something that is good that [...]

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 [...]

Ceballos move is shrewd for all parties

Morning all and before I get in to the usual stuff, if you received a barrage of old blogs from me yesterday into your inbox/social media feed, many apologies. The Wordpress app on my phone had a bit of a meltdown - probably because we haven't signed anyone - and suddenly started reposting every blog [...]

The kids impress against Fiorentina, but so do some of the senior players

So it appears as though this summer is going well from a results perspective, eh? A 3-0 victory against Fiorentina, another 'W' on the board and some encouraging performances from some players, I have to say. Take Saka, for example, who looked good in small flashes last season but really impressed in yesterday's game. He [...]

Saliba sorted, but the Sven situation doesn’t add up

Howdy all and welcome to another ore season Saturday and it's a Saturday in which I'm sure you've already seen yourselves, but we appear to finally got the Saliba deal over the line, so all that remains to be seen is for us to announce it. I suspect it'll be a low-key affair. After all [...]

Edu arrives, but don’t expect miracles, especially under a Kroenke regime

So we finally have confirmation that a new technical director has joined the club and in Edu, we have a former invincible squad member who joins us to try to get us moving in the right direction. Raul Sanllehi has called it the 'final jigsaw' piece that the clubs senior back room staff need to [...]

Saliba deal surely means we take another look at Bielik or Chambers?

So it appears the William Saliba deal from St Etienne is reaching its final conclusions and I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say "thank gawd". It's dragged on far too much with St Etienne insistent on that loan for an additional season. That's an interesting one I have to say from [...]
