Morning fellow Gooners, we alright? If you're UK based, you holding up ok in the heatwave, or are you excited to get out there this weekend in the sun? Do you know, I think this might be the hottest match I've witnessed at The Emirates? Can't wait. I really can't wait. I'm super excited about [...]

A busy few days for The Arsenal!

There may be no football just yet for The Arsenal, but there looks like there's plenty of goings on at London Colney, that's for sure. Over the last couple of days we've seen Arsenal pull the plug on a number of loan deals as John Jules and Azeez returned to the club from Blackpool and [...]

Arsenal depressingly never laid a glove on Chelsea

I don't know what was worse about yesterday's defeat to Chelski; the actual defeat, or the horrible predictability of how the game would go. I thought we'd concede early. We did. I thought they'd get a second and it would kill the game. It did. I thought we'd barely be able to fashion any chances [...]

Arteta needs a strong start

Match-day! Whoop! After gawd knows how long, we finally have a game with a full house of fans and even though I’m on a stag weekend in Edinburgh and none of the gents are football fans, there’s no way I won’t be watching tonight’s game from my phone. It’s an irritating one because Brentford is [...]

Are Arsenal ready for the new season? Is Willock’s exit just the start?

So the two big talking points today then, are: The final televised friendly against the Scum that ended in a 1-0 defeat yesterday lunchtime The impending sale of Joe Willock First, the game itself, which was the final one in the 'Mind' series. We found ourselves on the wrong end of the result and finished [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

Luiz loses the plot but Arteta has more problems than that

If you were to tell somebody to write a script that embodied the current Arsenal team, then play out that script in the form of a football match, it would resemble something very similar to what we witnessed last night with the 3-0 defeat at the Etihad. It had all of the component parts: Injuries [...]
