Morning folks and welcome to the day after transfer deadline day. We got through it. Phew. Let's start with the main bit of news that only emerged on Monday and was done by Tuesday. Jorginho joins The Arsenal for something around £12million. I've been saying on social media that I don't completely hate this deal [...]

Tottenahm, West Ham and Man United all won this weekend, which brings in to focus exactly what is needed from Mikel Arteta's side tonight as we face an Everton team who have had some injuries, some poor run of form, but haven't lost at home to us in four years. Last season we lost 2-1 [...]

Arsenal: A true meritocracy?

Very rarely do I write my blog title each day before I actually start typing my usual daily thoughts. Normally I just spill out on to the virtual page a selection of what I'm thinking about, then I try to put some kind of link between the headline and the waffle I've just written. But [...]

Keeping the whole squad happy at Arsenal

Morning all and welcome to Friday. The last one in October. How on earth is it nearly November already? Anyhoo, we should get ourselves a press conference today and that means we'll get an update on the player availability situation, which Mikel will obviously elaborate on at some stage today. I'm a natural worrier though [...]

The fine injury lines for a likeable Arsenal team

It appears the prognosis on Xhaka's knee ligament injury was worse than we thought and the club confirmed yesterday that he'll be out for three months as a result of the damage that was done in the North London Derby. It's a bitter blow for him and a blow for us. I spoke about it [...]

Xhaka’s injury a blow and an opportunity in equal measure

I bet Mikel Arteta thinks he’s got some kind of mini curse, because no sooner has he got a full strength squad to choose from, no sooner has he got his selection he can decide exactly based on the game that is being played, does he have one of his key men taken away from [...]

Are Arsenal ready for the new season? Is Willock’s exit just the start?

So the two big talking points today then, are: The final televised friendly against the Scum that ended in a 1-0 defeat yesterday lunchtime The impending sale of Joe Willock First, the game itself, which was the final one in the 'Mind' series. We found ourselves on the wrong end of the result and finished [...]

Morning folks. Happy Tuesday n’all that jazz. Hope you and yours are doing fine. We’re at T-minus ten days and counting until the kick of to the Premier League season and I don’t know about you, but I feel a mixture of excitement and trepidation about the season ahead. What isn’t helping is that it [...]

Sambi signs – but replacing Ceballos or Xhaka?

By |2021-07-20T07:37:20+01:00July 20th, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, midfield, pre season, Transfers|3 Comments

We have ourselves a fresh new signing to talk about! Ok, so it's not exactly like the old 'Sol Campbell turns up when everyone thought it was Richard Wright' level of surprise and intrigue, because we all knew this deal was going to happen and we've been fed enough information to know it was more [...]
