Well now, it seems to be some movement going on at London Colney, as we reach the 'one week and counting' part of the summer transfer window. It is the curse - or gift depending on how you see it - of this blogger that I spent half an hour yesterday writing about how we [...]

Looks as though the Matt Turner to Forest deal will be going through sooner rather than later and, with us playing them on Saturday lunchtime, it'd be weird if it happened sooner and he plays in between the sticks at the Emirates for the away team, eh? I've just had a look at the Forest [...]

Arteta is testing a few things – post Monaco thoughts

We won the Emirates Cup! Arteta has done it again! Of course I'm being a bit flippant and, unlike Richarlison, you could see when Martin Odegaard lifted the trophy last night by the way he looked so sheepish that this is hardly the 'big prize' that we were after, but I suppose a win is [...]

Well it seems - if ol' Romano is to be believed, that the Raya deal edges closer. I will still maintain that I'm not sure it is the move for us; he's a good 'keeper but no better than Ramsdale in my opinion, Brentford want too much money for a guy with one year left [...]

The changes are coming at Arsenal, but can they be decisive with Alexis?

The good news kept on coming yesterday with Arsenal, with the official confirmation from the club that Big Per, that man who in five years has already elevated himself in to some kind of legendary status, will be staying on beyond next season as Academy Manager at the club. I don't think there's a single [...]

Bit of a delayed post from me today. I booked meself off for a day of rest, relaxation and recuperation with the missus, after running a half marathon yesterday. These ageing limbs certainly can't do what they did ten years ago, I can tell you.The after effects of said marathon can also be felt in [...]

It's all rather quiet on this Tuesday morn, which is lovely given that there's a big game tomorrow and no doubt Arsène's presser at some stage today, so we'll get an update on who's available. We've already had Arsène's thoughts ahead of the visit of Monaco, in which he really goes out on a limb, [...]

Champions League sorted, now the FA Cup to focus on

Don't shoot the messenger here, but just before I woke up this morning, I was in Berlin about to watch Arsenal play in the Champions League final. We'd beaten Monaco and Basle and in the semi final we'd played Norman Booth under-11s (they were the best team in my youth league and won every game [...]
