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 [...]

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 [...]

Is Freddie’s promotion a warning shot to Unai?

Morning folks and happy Friday unto thee. We have some news amongst the barren wasteland of post season silence, although as much as many people online wanted it to be some sort of magical work of fiction and Kroenke was leaving the club and throwing his shares out of the plane over the Emirates as [...]

Freddie’s promotion: the bridge between youth team and first team?

The curse of Chris struck again yesterday it seems, as I listed out all of my reasons why Xhaka would not be leaving, which of course led to a supposed 'cousin' saying "he's off to Inter for €55million". Given that sort of money I'm not surprised that there's a link but I'm still putting it [...]
