It's match day in North London today! And that brings with it equal measures of excitement and trepidation. Always has, always will, but come 3pm Arteta and his players need to be ready to step up and do the business against a Fulham team smarting from a home 3-0 defeat last weekend against Brentford, as [...]

Arsenal released the words from Mikel Arteta for his press conference yesterday, which actually took place after the Sporting Lisbon game, so I guess all the journos were told it was under embargo until yesterday because a lot of the messaging didn't really come out about the game until the afternoon yesterday. So I guess [...]

Arsenal’s poor selling approach has to stop. Now.

No pleasantries this morning, straight in to the 'WTF' moment and as you and I were at home patiently scrolling through our social media feeds, news broke of the utterly horrendous deal Arsenal had done for Bernd Leno. £3million up front is a borderline insult for such a 'keeper, with £1million if he plays a [...]

Morning campers, we all doing good? We all feeling fine and dandy? I have taken to wearing a different Arsenal shirt each day now in prep for the new season. Hoping the pink and black ones arrive this week so I can perpetuate the plan right up until the big kick off on Friday. It's [...]

There’s money for players out there, Arsenal just have to find it

Morning, morning, morning people and welcome to 'The Countdown' - it all kicks off this Friday with The Arsenal and I personally cannot wait. But before I go back to talking about The Arsenal men's team, it would be remiss of me not to tip my hat to the England Women's football team, who went [...]

Arsenal should stand strong in the face of transfer sale adversity

Yesterday Arsenal lost a pre season, behind-closed-doors, game at London Colney to Brentford. We went down 2-1 to goals from footballers I've never heard of, with Nketiah getting our goal in between the two Brentford goals. Now, if we're going to caveat all of our victories this summer as 'it's only pre season', then this [...]

Turner’s arrival shows sensible Arsenal making moves

Well, after basking in the radiant glow that is an away win on Thursday night, what better way to continue the positivity than to announce a shiny new signing! Ok, we kind of knew the deal was done for US national team goalkeeper Matt Turner and yes, it isn't exactly in the position we need, [...]

Arteta talks a great game – we need it on the pitch NOW

Morning party people, happy Friday! Let's hope that this weekend might bring that most precious of things: goals and three points to The Arsenal! I don't know why I'm starting off today's blog with such unbridled positivity, because I've woken up at 5.15am and I feel absolutely shattered. Plus there's a leaving party at my [...]

England remind me why I love Arsenal and hate internationals

Perhaps I should thank Gareth Southgate and the England team. I was starting to enjoy the Euro’s and international football in general, so good on him and his players to remind me just how turgid it is in general. Last night was the first proper snooze fest of the competition and it reminded me of [...]

Arsenal’s sensible ‘keeper planning underway?

Happy Wednesday to thee, fellow Gooner. Today I am wearing the new yellow away jersey to work. Because I can. And I must say I love the colour, the nod to the past with the cannon (sigh, yes, I know the cannon is the wrong way, but I still love it) as well as the [...]
