Morning Gooners and happy Monday to you. I was in the Algarve over the weekend and so didn't have much chance to pen any thoughts, but as it was an international weekend that kind of worked out well for me, because Eddie Nketiah first England appearance aside in the last 20 minutes of the friendly [...]

Morning you lovely lot. Happy Wednesday from a tired Gooner hurtling his way towards central London on the Metropolitan Line for an all day strategy session. Could life get any more exciting, eh? Still, at least I'm not in Harry Maguire's position, because he can't get anything right, eh? I mean don't get me wrong, [...]

Morning peeps. Happy Saturday to you and yours. Hope you guys are all good. It's going to be a scorcher this weekend and so after today's brain dump I'll be heading out to the garden to fire up the paddling pool I reckon! Come 2pm there will be a beached whale of a Suburban Gooner [...]

Sweating on the fitness of Partey

I don't know about you guys, but when I saw that Thomas Partey was an unused substitute in the game against Angola yesterday evening, my initial thought was of relief. After all, if he's made the bench, then he must be available to be used, right? I mean, otherwise if he isn't fit to play [...]

I was going to talk about some of the players who are on international duty, how I am praying for their safe return, having a little look at how far they are travelling over the next few days and then working out who I thought might be the one we need to keep a closest [...]

Morning Gooners and welcome to Friday - hope we're all feeling grand? In the UK it has somewhat unexpectantly become a bank holiday this weekend because of the Queen's funeral, which means I'm up north visiting the in-laws, looking out on to a crystal clear Northumbrian morning as I type today. It's quite peaceful. I [...]

Morning Gooners, how we all doing on this Sunday, eh? Me? I'm feeling a wee bit fragile, as I went to a gin festival yesterday and basically drank about a litre of different spirits, followed by going for a few drinks after and drinking wine and beer. They say it is 'Mothers Ruin'. They are [...]

Morning folks. How we all doing? Feeling good? I’m feeling pretty good. Hurtling my way in to the Big Smoke for a day at the office, with little proper Arsenal news to speak of, hopefully meaning they’re all getting themselves recharged at the club so that ‘we go again’ for pre season and the new [...]
