Morning Gooners. Provocative headline I know, but given some of the rumours that have circulated over the last 24 hours I thought I'd wade in with my opinion as to why I cannot see either Granit Xhaka or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joining the respective clubs they've been linked with by the gutter press. Let's start first [...]

The unsavoury part of the footballing calendar has begun: transfer season. Here we go again folks. Here we go with the attention seekers, looking to provide a 'scoop' simply by making things up from their mobiles on public transport somewhere. Here we go with the fighting amongst Twitter accounts as people label other people as [...]

This last few days has been some of the longest times I've not blogged since I started this website up around ten years ago. I don't tend to do it too much when I'm on holiday, usually because I'm hanging and not waking up until after 10, but this time around there is no such [...]

Change it Arsenal. Or Stan’s oblivion awaits

By |2019-05-30T08:55:47+01:00May 30th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Europa League, Unai Emery|2 Comments

I'm trying hard this morning guys. I'm trying real hard. I'm trying hard because for all of the talk, the messages from ex players, the 'manager' who supposedly feels comfortable with this competition, what I'm looking at is a team of f**cking bottlers who stared Champions League and a trophy and not only blinked, but [...]

How desperate are Arsena to win the Europa League?

This is it then. A whole season distilled down to one football match in which the success or failure will be viewed. All through the prism of a European Cup final. I've seen one in my lifetime, witnessed three heartbreaking ones, so I'm very aware of our record in Europe and very aware that this [...]

Happy Bank Holiday Sunday to those of you in the UK, enjoying the extra day off tomorrow, which means we can all have an extra cheeky beverage or two this afternoon and then take a bit of a lie in for the morning too. I wonder what the Arsenal players will be doing today. It's [...]

Fraser is worth a punt if the price is right

Morning Gooners. Happy Saturday. Not long now until we find out whether this season is a busted flush or glorious chapter in the clubs' history. But whilst many of us are starting to focus on the Europa League, there are still transfer speculations going on and the one that appears to be properly hotting up [...]

Mavididi at Juve: Damned if you do, damned if you don’t

By |2019-05-24T08:38:49+01:00May 24th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, gooners, Gunners, Unai Emery|0 Comments

I read an article this morning on the BBC website about how Stephy Mavididi made his debut for Juventus in the last few weeks and has already impressed the Italian Champions since joining the club. It got me thinking about academy products and particularly Arsenal academy products because this could end up being a Pogba-esque [...]
