Arsenal’s Striking Options A Conundrum for Arsene

I missed the opening twenty five minutes of our league match at Goodison at the weekend as Jo wanted to go to Bakewell and, well, eat some Bakewell tart (we were in Leeds over the weekend). Normally, I would say that whilst the tart was good, it wasn’t worth missing…


Hurry up and Wait

I hate waiting. Sitting around whilst waiting for something to happen, stinks. 10am appointment at the hospital? No problem, just get there for 9:30 and then wait for an eternity whilst the ninety-four other people in the waiting room take their turn ahead of you. Got a flight at 2pm?…

Arsenal Draw Blanks in Turkey Shoot

As a cure for insomnia, you wouldn’t have to look too far beyond last night’s match in Turkey. I had to be up earlier than usual this morning (if things get a bit weird later on, you’ll know why), so- worried about getting the requisite amount of sleep last night,…


Wade on Wednesday: After two games, what signings do Arsenal actually need?

So the new season is well and truly underway. And with the reality of football taking place on the pitch rather than on discussion boards around the web, some of the air has started to leak from the balloon of summer optimism. After the predictions of glory following the Wembley…

The £20m Match: Arsenal v Besiktas

It’s a funny thing, the football season. I finish every season thinking to myself, God, I don’t know if I can put myself through that again, let alone write about it. I guess, on some level, this maybe the case for those of us who began blogging about Arsenal post…

Arsenal Huff, Puff and Blow the Palace Down

Happy Monday everyone. Well, it usually is when you’ve won at the weekend, isn’t it? It seems unbelievable to think it, but the three points earned by Aaron Ramsey’s injury time winner represents the first time Arsenal have made a winning start to a league campaign since 2009. Which, to…

Arsenal’s win over Crystal Palace provided several hints for the season ahead

It’s hard to make any real, serious judgements or analysis about a team based solely on pre-season results. Pre-season is about match fitness, young players and testing new formations – it’s in no way an accurate barometer of how a team will perform once real competition starts. Even during the…


Olympiacos demand £8m from Arsenal for Manolas

Arsenal have been told that they must stump up £8m if they want to sign centreback Kostas Manolas from Olympiacos in what seems like the most reasonable transfer demand of all time. Clearly Olympiacos have no clue about the ridiculous sums some English clubs demand for their players. The London…


Arsenal options key to a successful season

It’s funny how, in football, history has a habit of repeating itself. Think about it: three World Cup finals between Argentina and Germany, Spurs fans getting ahead of themselves and Chelsea being the proverbial C U Next Tuesdays… I could, clearly, go on. But that might make for a a bit of…

Wembley win engenders pre season optimism shocker

Hi everyone! Long time no speak, etc… Some of you might have been thinking that I had gone into hiding after the “Why I hate Liverpool article”. But no, I’ve been busy, living my life, going on holiday and seeing parts of the world that the keyboard warriors who responded…


Arsenal favourites to land Manolas

According to an exclusive report on the TuttoJuve site Arsenal are now the favourites to land Olympiacos’ Kostas Manolas. The centreback, who has been attracting the attentions of Juventus, Napoli, and Roma, is being eyed up by the Gunners to replace Thomas Vermaelen who signed for Barcelona at the weekend….
