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 [...]

Silly goals conceded against Barca; deja vu defending shows signings needed

Final pre season friendly out of the way and, as probably is to be expected, we went to the Nou Camp and came back with a defeat. It's a familiar thing that we've seen before so there won't be too many surprises with that and hey, I've spent all summer saying that the results from [...]

Arsenal need to ship out before they bring in and Coutinho shouldn’t be one that comes in

So we have our first bit of significant cash coming in as Krystian Bielik becomes a Derby player for around £10million, as well as Takuma Asano heading off to Partizan Belgrade for £1million, meaning that we made a £2.5million loss on a player who essentially went out on loan for the whole of his Arsenal [...]

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 [...]

Pepe edges closer, Mustafi edges further away, but defence questions remain

So we're edging closer towards the Pepe signing as - if rumours are to be believed - he's due for a medical at some stage either today or tomorrow and despite the fact that nothing is secret any more and so we all know chapter and verse about this deal, I'm still excited, and I [...]

Some positives from youth but that Arsenal back line terrifies me

So we had the Emirates Cup yesterday in which Lyon eventually beating us from coming two goals behind (one of which looking like it certainly had more than a whiff of offside about it) and as a result there were a few Gooners who sadly couldn't see a victory on home soil before the important [...]

What’s going on at right back for Arsenal?

By |2019-07-28T11:33:03+01:00July 28th, 2019|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Defence, pre season, Tactics, Unai Emery|1 Comment

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 [...]

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 [...]
