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 [...]

Lack of incoming and outgoing at Arsenal is now becoming an issue

Happy Monday folks. Hope you're all keeping your sh*t together despite the fact that we are heading off for the first pre season tour of the summer and there are still no significant incomings for us all to get excited about. I tweeted something about three weeks ago saying "chill out people, plenty of time [...]

Iwobi centrally? Koscielny offski? Who’s impressed at Borehamwood?

By |2019-07-07T10:31:55+00:00July 7th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, gooners, Gunners, pre season, soccer, Transfers|0 Comments

Been heading out for some sun, sea and plenty of white wine Douro so haven't been able to blog as much over the last few days, but given that there seems to have been the square root of bigger all happening with The Arsenal I guess I haven't really missed much. I saw Iwobi got [...]

Martinelli wants a Ronaldo career trajectory – we could do with that!

By |2019-07-03T08:08:57+00:00July 3rd, 2019|Arsenal Transfers, contracts, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|0 Comments

We have our first signing of the summer! Hazaar! Gabriel Martinelli joins us from Ituano and hopefully it's not the 'Petr Cech solo summer signing' of a few years back, but it is still good to see a new face in at the club. A new face who models himself on Cristiano Ronaldo and if [...]

Zaha to Arsenal: Something’s gotta give

Morning all. An utter scorcher in London today means i'll be basking myself all afternoon in a garden in Hertfordshire today methinks, as my Pa rustles me up some piri-piri chicken and maybe a sausage or two. I wonder what Wilfred haha is doing? If you believe the press he's probably phoning up Roy Hodgson [...]
