The media bashing on Odegaard is because Arsenal are a big club

If there's one thing that is sure to brighten up a day, it is a shiny new signing, so today we're hoping there's one to speak of and I suspect there will be. Apparently Odegaard had his medical yesterday and after that happens there's usually some pictures and a video made up, so I wonder [...]

No Ramsdale for Sheffield United, No Ramsdale for Arsenal, please…

Last night Sheffield United beat Carlisle in the first round of the League Cup and Aaron Ramsdale did not feature. Cue the noises online about an impending transfers and a possible deal to Arsenal, which was shortly followed by a general outpouring of disdain from my social media timelines. Honestly, I don't think there has [...]

Maddison would have to be ‘a madness’, but Ramsdale rumour is utter madness

I don't know what it is about this Euro's, but I'm finding myself oddly enjoying it, which is a real first for international tournaments. Don't get me wrong, I watch them, follow England and then Germany and to a lesser extent the Dutch, but I never really bother with most of the games, usually because [...]

Morale boosting win against Sjeffield United will help Arsenal prep for Slavia

It's snowing in London this morning. Snowing. In mid April. How weird is that? About as weird and unusual as an Arsenal clean sheet these days, so when the final whistle went and it was confirmed that we had beaten the hapless Sheffield United by three goals to nil, I didn't really know what to [...]

Evade a high press against Sheffield United and don’t hoof long, Arsenal

In the grand scheme of things the result tonight probably doesn't really matter too much against Sheffield United. Of course we want to win, but winning will neither cement a position in a part of the league we want to be at, nor will it enable us to climb the league to any significant amount. [...]

Saka and Pepe spring to life to down the Blades

After seeing what unfolded yesterday in most of the other games, there's something very satisfying about a relatively 'normal' victory over a disciplined Sheffield United side, like we got at home yesterday lunchtime. United were a travesty and Liverpool just forgot who they were, whereas Leicester also had an off day against West Ham so [...]

Sheffield United preview – this game is won and lost out wide

Morning folks. It's matchday! A welcome distraction from the transfer window and it's impending closure, eh? That's certainly how I think some people see it. They see the ACTUAL football as the side note and get too wound up in the count down to the closure of the window to the extent that some probably [...]

Wishing away the transfer window; Saliba, Torreira and Aouar are key

Morning folks and happy Saturday to you. Just 24 and a bit hours until we play Sheffield United, then 48 hours and a bit until the dreadful transfer window closes and I don't know about you, but this is when football becomes more tiresome. I joined Twitter in February 2010 to meet other Arsenal fans [...]

Formations Schmormations (at the Arsenal)

Morning folks. Happy Tuesday. I hope you and yours are keeping well. I have woken up this morning in a good mood. Is it because I have no meetings today and so can just get through my 'to do' list without much interruption? Or could it be because it's payday? Maybe. But mostly it is [...]

Tough to watch at times, but Arteta is building something – post Sheffield United thoughts

I like the world a lot more when Arsenal do the winning. It is way more fun. And even though yesterday's game - like the Southampton game - had plenty of parts that weren't a lot of fun to watch at times, I have to say the satisfaction by the end was very enjoyable. It's [...]
