Still feeling it a little bit after the game on Sunday. How about you? Even the catharsis of doing the pod last night hasn't helped to get me over the defeat to Brighton. I said on the pod that my football hangover cure was to avoid social media for a bit and that I did, [...]

Arsenal and Arteta get the tactics and mentality wrong against Brighton

There are some days where I really just don't feel like writing about football or, specifically, about The Arsenal. Today my friends, is one of those days, for sure. I even fired up my laptop this morning and instead of logging on to the site and starting to type away, I started to go through [...]

Cor blimey I had a skin-full last night. Eurovision virtual party with the family and I decided the only way to get through it is to drink so much booze that walking upstairs to bed felt like a pilgrimage. **Makes noise like Sideshow Bob when he steps on all those rakes in The Simpsons** I [...]

Howdy peeps, hope we're all feeling good on this Premier League weekend? The big matches don't happen until tomorrow with Man City going to Everton to pick up what will inevitably be three points as Everton lie down and have their chins tickled by a Man City side who will feel pretty confident that they [...]

And then The Ornstein went and did that to us... Yep, last night we got another injury blow via The Athletic reporter, that not only with Saliba miss the remainder of this season through injury, but we'd also lose his fellow defensive teammate Oleksandr Zinchenko through a calf strain as well. both are big blows [...]

Giving Trossard his props

Morning folks. How we all doing? Nervous anticipation ahead of Sunday? Or like me are you just nervous? There will be a press conference today from Mikel Arteta, in which we'll get an update on player availability, with the likelihood of confirmation being that Saliba is out for the weekend. I said my bit on [...]

Arsenal need to pivot quickly after latest Caicedo rebuff

Welcome to Transfer Deadline Day week folks. Strap yourselves in, because the next 40ish hours or so are going to be rather trying, as usual, I suspect. I said I wasn't going to get too connected to the Moises Caicedo stuff, but after flying back from Newcastle last night hand having a solid hour and [...]

Partey’s importance cannot be understated enough at The Arsenal

Morning fellow Gooners, hope you're all well on this Sunday morn. It feels a little quiet waking up today in the Arsenal world, after the game on Friday and also the release of information about our £60million Caicedo bid. I am in Northumberland at the moment and I spent a lot of time yesterday with [...]

Trossard to Arsenal – a great signing from all angles

I found myself feeling the most dirty and unholiest of things last night: I actually routed for the Scum to win. It felt wrong on so many levels. But our ambitions have elevated ourselves above such local rivalry for me. The Scum are less of a consequence for The Arsenal this season. I suppose if [...]

First and foremost - happy new year to you all. This is a slightly delayed match review post, on account of the fact that yesterday I wanted to do nothing more than lie on the sofa and slowly vegetate. But having watched the game on New Year’s Eve and seen all of the results so [...]
