Another one bites the Arsenal dust

Arsenal look like they’re playing the most Harry Redknapp “well, I’m daan to th’ bare bones ‘ere lads” approach to squad composition I think I’ve ever seen in my life! Yep, yesterday another one bit the Arsenal dust, as Calum Chambers signed for Aston Villa almost completely out of the blue. It took pretty much [...]

Rotation works as Arsenal progress beyond Leeds in the League Cup

Another win to add to the growing list people, which is never a bad thing, even if it was in the League Cup and with a heavily rotated team. I'm sure you're bored of having to put all the usual caveats in place - "it was only the League Cup", "Leeds fielded a slightly weaker [...]

As much goodness and badness: Chelski friendly review

Plenty to chew over from yesterday's 2-2* draw over Chelski at the Emirates, some good, some shall we say 'less so good'. Let's get the less so good stuff out of the way first though, because I'd rather finish today's blog feeling a little more positive, given that it's a Monday morning. Arteta named a [...]

Jekyll and Hyde Arsenal return with Odegaard pulling the strings

Football is bloody bonkers sometimes. Yesterday's game away to West Ham was an example of that and I'll be honest with you, I have no idea how to properly judge what we all witnessed yesterday. That's because when I usually analyse how I feel with The Arsenal it usually falls in to quite a binary [...]

Morning folks and welcome to the middle of the week again. The countdown to our next set of season-defining fixtures is well and truly upon us and tomorrow evening we find out if we are a step closer to glory, in the grey area of "who knows?", or staring down the barrel of another season [...]

Chambers and Saliba’s vital minutes to spell future first team options?

By |2020-11-12T08:12:01+00:00November 12th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Defence, Europa League, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Morning folks. Here comes international break Thursday and with it a whole heap of...well...not a lot, really. The best Arsenal scraps we have to feed off are an under-23s game in which Chambers and Saliba played, as well as Gareth Southgate asking if Bukayo Saka is ok after the defeat to Villa. BUkayo broke down [...]

Martinez gone, but that’s just a small slice of the income we need

By |2020-09-14T07:19:12+01:00September 14th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, finances, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Transfers|1 Comment

So it appears the Emi Martinez situation has come to a conclusion last night with pretty much every news outlet now reporting that the deal has been done and he's joined Aston Villa for around £20million. I say ' around' because whilst most are reporting it at £20million, Sky Sports were talking it up as [...]

Arsenal aren’t being low-balled any more

How desperate have we all been for Arsenal to start behaving in a way where we won’t just get rolled over by other clubs? I am of course talking about the supposed rejection from Arsenal yesterday of the Maitland-Niles bid from Wolves, who are said to have bid well below the £20million asking price, which [...]

Gabriel and Auba; it ain’t over until it’s over

Yo peeps. Nearly there. Slowly trotting towards the weekend and with it, by all accounts, a deal for a young Brazilian appears to be drawing to a close for £22million as Gabriel Magalhaes is on the verge of joining us apparently. I've seen it a few times on Twitter and a couple of people I [...]

Arsenal’s defenisve stockpiling means we need other teams to move first

It's all feeling a bit quiet this morning. Well, I say quiet, but that is in the context of The Arsenal and what's happened in the last year or so. If it's not quick-fire football matches, or managers being given the boot, or changes in back room exec level, or contracts, or signings, or COVID-19, [...]
