No more “one or two players short” Arsenal

By |2023-07-13T07:56:39+01:00July 13th, 2023|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, History, Mikel Arteta, pre season|0 Comments

Still nothing on the ol' signings front, but given we're at 13th July and today is our first pre season friendly game (proper one, the one at London Colney with Watford doesn't really count) I'm not going to get bent out of shape. The reality is we're just awaiting the formalities and then all will [...]

Squad depth and mentality at Arsenal

Morning folks, how we all doing? Having a good one? I'm struggling to shift a bloody annoying sore throat and cough at the moment, which isn't ideal, but I guess it's the time of year n'that... It's also the time of the season where the dust has settled on the transfer window, the second half [...]

Arsenal should be upbeat, providing injuries don’t cripple us

Morning Gooners, welcome to Tuesday, a grizzly one in London which you'd expect that to be the mood after losing up in Manchester yet again. But it kind of isn't. I've woken up this morning thinking about that game and thinking "that kind of result doesn't happen that way nine out of ten times". I [...]

Signings or not this week, this Arsenal squad has balance

Morning folks and happy Monday with a lovely ol' start to the week. Lovely because yesterday we were treated to some hilarity in the shape of Chelsea fluffing their lines at Elland Road and have their arse handed to them by Jessie March's  Leeds. Now, I realise that we are yet to play Leeds, they [...]

Pepe’s value needs a French kick start; holding on to Holding?

It's Rumour-mill: The Exit edition, going on at Arsenal  right now, if you believe all of the papers over the last 24 hours.  We've had Pepe off to Nice, Holding off to Aston Villa, although Hector Bellerin's zero-price move to Betis appears to be going cold. I'll avoid the final player in that trio, but [...]

Morning, morning, morning, you wonderful people, you. How we all doing? Feeling grand? Or, like me, are you feeling just a wee bit ropey after a weekend of warm weather and booze? Or, are you quite excited for the new season to start, having now been able to see Arsenal win every single pre season [...]

Lacazette’s lacka output won’t secure him any big move

Looks like Alexandre Lacazette has been keeping his eyes open and options available for his next move, having spoken to French TV, who yesterday released his comments about having multiple offers from teams and also wanting to play for a Champions League club. I'm sure you do Alex, I'm sure you do. But let's not [...]

How the hell can Arsenal keep every player fit?

And so the saga ends. Relatively quicker than the Özil one that dragged out for two or three seasons, the Aubameyang saga was concluded within two months, as the club confirmed it had terminated the contract with the player by ‘mutual consent’. Whatever that means. And I say that because there are a myriad of [...]

The fine injury lines for a likeable Arsenal team

It appears the prognosis on Xhaka's knee ligament injury was worse than we thought and the club confirmed yesterday that he'll be out for three months as a result of the damage that was done in the North London Derby. It's a bitter blow for him and a blow for us. I spoke about it [...]

Howdy folks and welcome to Thursday, a Thursday in which we have a confirmation that a certain Norwegian has joined the club on loan to help bring some more support in the creative positions to our in-form Arsenal team. Martin Odegaard confirmed, our attention will now turn to the type of player we are getting, [...]
