Can Willock and Guendouzi handle it?

Fast forward a year. Just one. Hover boards are in, we’ll be able to summon food via Alexa and it will materialise in front of us. Technology is king and VAR rules our very existence. Was I late for work, VAR reviewed it and said Yes, were there mitigating circumstances, did VAR care? No, you’re […]

Did we learn anything from Newcastle?

I was excited to see what happened at Newcastle, not simply because it was the first game of the season, but actually because this is Emery’s team now. Newcastle wasn’t the whole picture and we probably won’t really be seeing what his team looks like until October, when the majority of the players are back […]

It begins! Arsenal Vs Newcastle

Finally, as if it’s not bad enough that we had to watch them idiots conspire to beat Villa in the most annoying way possible, we are here today to kick off our Premier League season. Robbed of the silky skills of Ozil today due to some late night incidents (which is abhorrent by the way), […]

One from the drafts 5th Jan 2018: Who’s leaving? Arsene want’s them all to stay..except that one…

Discovered this the other day… interesting reading…. WG We all know Arsene can be stubborn, he’s media-savvy and uses spin like a cloak of invisibility to protect the club from criticism. People have been listening to it for too long though, they’re now tuned in to his politician-esque swagger and can see right through it. […]

Unai Emery’s Arsenal

We’re here and we’re the other side of the transfer window, in the UK at least. No more incoming transfers. There is outbound business still to be done I suspect, involving Elneny, Mustafi, Nacho or more likely, Kolasinac. Watch this space. Kolasinac is on big money, as is Mustafi and I’m certain we want to […]

A Clear Statement of Intent

Well, what a day yesterday was. I don’t think I’ve had a transfer deadline day (which never used to be a thing..but is now a thing… a terrible, screen refreshing, frantically swiping on twitter thing that ruined a potentially productive day with incredible excitement and occasional boredom) like it. Over the course of the transfer […]

Wow. What a transfer window.

It didn’t take an awful lot of thought to be very pessimistic about this transfer window. Not wanting to do him a disservice, but whilst Ryan Fraser’s numbers over the last few seasons aren’t too shabby, I can’t think of a single Arsenal fan who was enthused by the prospect of him joining us. So […]

Is Raul playing Fantasy Football?

I mean really? 60 Million Euro bid tabled for Dayot Upamecano? This is a new era, it feels tangible the huge difference in transfer policy to this time last year. Or the year before. Whilst there are clear issues that need addressing in this squad, it actually feels like we are trying to address them. […]

How casual is too casual?

I don’t want this to sound like I’m bashing the player but it needs to be said. Ainsley Maitland-Niles dropped a right clanger against Barcelona and in doing so highlighted a big flaw in his game or indeed personality that unless fixed will prevent him from making it at the top level. I really like […]
