I decided to say a little something yesterday on Twitter, to chip in, on the whole Stan Kroenke thing. Y'know, the whole 'get out of our club mate' vibe that has been consistent for a few years. I didn't get any abuse, but I did see a few sneers from people online about those being [...]

I'm not really a massive fan of the use of 'memes', I have to say. I mean, occasionally I've gone on to one of those 'meme generator' things to send someone an email, but I don't really do it on a regular basis. Perhaps it's because it takes me more than thirty seconds to source [...]

Elite pool is small, so we need to accept the next level down in striker search

Henry – Every story leads to Wenger-based battle lines

When I saw the very public way in which the whole 'Thierry Henry coaching at Arsenal' announcement came out yesterday, I couldn't help but think that it seemed very 'un-Arsenal' in terms of the public nature of it all. There were rumours about the decision to have Henry as a coach being vetoed by Arsène, [...]

Poor end to poor competition, met with poor transfer speculation after it’s done

Having had a long weekend of over-endulgence, coupled with going in to mourning over the now barren spell in which the Euro's finished and I find myself with no more football to watch for at least another month, I've decided to get back on to the blog and compile some thoughts on a Tuesday morn.  [...]

There were few 'big' moves and the transfer 'Archduke Franz Ferdinand' never happened

Happy Thursday to you and yours. Hopefully you're enjoying your time on this Earth and you haven't spiraled in to a pit of despair after Arsenal didn't sign fifty bazillion players on Transfer Deadline Day. Arsene spoke yesterday after the window had 'slammed shut' - to coin a hyperbolic phrase - and he referenced the [...]
