Alexis’ failure is delicious; Unai’s success is needed

Well if ever there was a failed move between two top clubs it was that of Alexis Sanchez who, in chasing the megabucks, finds himself an unwanted man and about to be shipped to the barren wasteland known as Serie A. A tenth month loan deal in which United have to shell out £6million during [...]

I know there Will be those out there saying "it's only Newcastle" and given that Newcastle are in a bit of turmoil themselves I know it was hardly the most difficult of starts for us to kick off our campaign yesterday afternoon in the north east, but I was delighted with yesterday's win in so [...]

Stuttering youth performance against Angers

By |2019-08-01T07:42:15+00:00August 1st, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, pre season, youth|0 Comments

So we have ourselves enough leaked news and people (like the Lille chairman) talking about Nicolas Pepe's move to The Arsenal, that we know it's happening, we just haven't had it confirmed yet. No doubt the game against Angers was an overriding factor in the announcement not happening. Arsenal had enough stuff to talk about [...]

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 [...]

Deals done, but opportunities missed at Q&A?

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 [...]

One month on: Starting to lose my sh*t with Arsenal

About a month ago I think I wrote a piece which said something broadly along the lines of "it's only June people, we don't need to lose our collective sh*t just yet". We were just a few weeks after the Europa League Final, it appeared as though there were a few targets who were being [...]

Torreira news is positive, but we need a young Prince waiting behind him

So we've all been Ornsteined after he did his bit to whip up the Arsenal fan base yesterday by giving a lowdown on Arsenal's dealings this summer and whilst it included a little on the potential 'incomings' it was the speculated 'outgoings' that had me happier after I'd read what he had to say. Firstly [...]

Osei-Tutu, ESR, Nelson and Saliba – why Arsenal have to get all of their futures right

So we have the first young player confirmed outgoing in Jordi Oseu-Tutu and, at 20 years of age and not really got near a regular starting place in the first team, I'm not too surprised. I won't pretend to be an expert on the youth team and I simply don't watch enough, but this feels [...]

Bielik can walk the same path as Nelson, but Nelson needs to be backed first

I don't really know what to make of all the Lucas Torreira nonsense, so instead I think I'll ignore it, because until we hear from more credible sources about the potential move, or until we hear about credible offers (a two year loan deal and €38million fee at the end is, frankly, an abomination of [...]
