Well now, they've finally lost it at the Premier League and in trying to pump in crowd noise via the red button when the season restarts, we're going to have come to the last desperate grabs by the broadcasters to protect their 'product'. Selfishly I hope it bombs. That's because I'm one of the people [...]

Torreira’s agent talking, but are we talking to Saka?

Morning folks, hope all is good with you, on this Saturday which should have been the end of the season. Except, as we all know, it is far from the end of the season. We still have another ten games to play and the Premier League met this week to work out what the next [...]

Auba adds to Emery damnation; Smith-Rowe groomed as Özil replacement?

Still nothing really meaty from the club ahead of the weekend's fixture with Newcastle, but that's to be expected give that it's Thursday, as well as the fact it's a home game. Arsène liked to do easy on a Friday, being Spanish Unai preferred them later on in the day, but Arteta has so many [...]

A turgid Premier League shines light on Sanllehi

When you realise how often some of the 'big teams' are screwing up at the moment at the top of the Premier League, it does make you wonder how Arsenal find themselves mid table with 24 games gone, because any sort of run of victories probably gets you in to the top four. How on [...]

Irrational plotting on Arsenal’s top four hopes

I find it a little bit weird that even though we are mid-table fodder right now, I still look at those teams towards the top of the league and think "good" when things go against them, as if their misfortune might in some way benefit us. So the fact that Leicester City drew at home [...]

Arteta’s philosophy needs a season to embed

With the club still another three and a bit days in which we play another game (having had rapid-football fired at us over Christmas) there is understandably a desire to eek out as much delicious content from the Leeds win as possible on the official site. And who can blame the PR and Marketing Teams, [...]

Emery’s time is up. But other questions remain.

It's finally happened. Yesterday morning Unai arrived at the training ground to prepare for the Norwich game this weekend and he didn't even get to put the cones out. By the time the first ball was kicked at London Colney he and his Spanish staff had been told that their services were no longer required [...]

More evidence of Arsenal’s failing leadership – Frankfurt defeat at home

Well now kids, how many of you could have predicted that an average, mid-table team from Germany, who have had patchy form, with no "official" supporters in the stadium (although we know they were there), would pick up three points against Unai Emery's shambolic Arsenal team? Just about everybody I reckon. This team is done. [...]

An empty Arsenal stadium to see some fun against Frankfurt tonight?

Have you ever felt so 'Meh' about a game in your life? Probably. There's games towards the end of the season when there's nothing left to play for that feel very pointless and although this match tonight has something riding on it - Europa League qualification to the k computer phase - it's hard to [...]

The new manager timeline is underway – but will it be Nuno?

There's plenty of chatter going on about Nuno Espírito Santo at the moment. He's the bookies favourite at the moment, in front of Arteta, Allegri and Benitez, the latter two being free agents shortly (Chinese Super League finishes soon) and therefore right up KSE's street if/when they decide time is up for Emery. And it [...]
