  • Auba’s message is as confusing as ever, but Arsenal’s financial situation is more so
    This morning I logged on to my Arsenal online account on the official website and asked for my cashback refund on my season ticket today. It gave me an odd sense of sadness and guilt for some reason. I think that’s because in the back of my mind I was ... read more

  • Luiz numbers are scary, but does Kia still want more of the Arsenal cake?
    Morning all and welcome to another lockdown Monday. There’s one thing I do kind of like about the working from home part of lockdown instead of being on a tube hurtling towards the city, which is that I can wear pretty much what I like, so my suits haven’t seen ... read more

  • A touch of the Cohen Bramall’s on Arsenal’s new signing
    Morning peeps, hope you’re holding up well, as always. Another week has passed us by and here we are for another Saturday, sans The Arsenal, but at least we have each other, am I right? We also have the odd bit of slim pickings to choose from on an Arsenal ... read more

  • Does behind closed doors games give Arsenal an advantage?
    Morning all and welcome to a brand new day and, finally, some clarity regarding the conclusion of the 2019/20 season. Football will be back in just under three weeks! Well, I say “football”, but it’s not the football we all know as I’ve harped on about for weeks, but at ... read more

  • Luiz one of a few sad goodbyes this summer?
    With the Premier League voting unanimously that players can finally touch each other yesterday, it looks like we’re nearing the continuation of the mind-numbingly tedious situation that is the conclusion of  this pointless season of Premier League football and I’ll be honest with you, I just want it all over ... read more

  • This time three years ago…
    This time three years ago I had just woken up. The weather report said it was going to be a glorious day and the sun was starting to poke through the blackout blinds of my Velux windows in mine and the Management’s bedroom. I’d gone to bed a little later ... read more

  • Arsenal and the FA Cup – OUR CUP
    Morning folks and happy Monday to thee. A bank holiday Monday it is in the sun for me today, which is splendid indeed I have to say. Although when your day starts off with a bit of writing about The Arsenal, and there’s no actual Arsenal with which to chew ... read more

  • No money at Arsenal and swap deals are even less likely
    Morning folks and happy Sunday to thee. If you’re reading this in the UK then it’s a bank holiday tomorrow, which turns today into a sort of pseud-Saturday, which is always lovely. Think we’re due to get a bit of sunshine too, so hopefully I’ll be able to sit out ... read more

  • Aubameyang to PSG has me going all amateur accountant
    I feel a bit dirty this morning. Not physically dirty, but mentally dirty, because I went on the hunt for some Arsenal content this morning and started clicking on transfer-related links from the click baitey gutter press. It was pretty, it wasn’t fun, I didn’t enjoy it and so the ... read more

  • Arsenal to pick up some freebies in the summer?
    So we have now seen pictures of the players returning to training this week and what have we learned? Very little of course. Because it’s training. And you only get the occasional still. I do think all of the Premier League clubs should start broadcasting video content of the training. ... read more

  • CGI ‘sit down’ fans at the Emirates? Dembele from Barca, anyone?
    I’ve got to tell you, I’m enjoying reading some of the hair-brained ideas being supposedly cooked up by the Premier League, broadcasters, etc, to try to mitigate what will eventually be a flawed product when the English football season starts up again. Genuinely, it really is rather quite amusing, especially ... read more

  • No touching, no contact, no fans and no fun – aren’t we all gonna love the new Premier League?
    The Premier League is fast becoming a bit of a farce, isn’t it? I mean here we are just having learned about ‘Project Restart’ a couple of weeks ago, with the Premier League given the green light to apparently start integrating players into small groups so they can train as ... read more

  • Lacazette’s transgressions; Chambers benefitting from everyone lockdown?
    Morning folks. Happy Monday and all that jazz. In London it’s going to be a sunny week so at least that’s something worth being pleased about whilst so many of us are still cooped up at home. It’s been trying for all of us and we’ve all been wanting to ... read more

  • The match day fan is everything to football
    Yesterday afternoon I switched on to BT Sport to have a look at the closing stages of one of the Bundesliga games. I was curious to see what playing in empty stadiums would look and sound like and as test case for when the Premier League eventually returns, I thought ... read more

  • Torreira’s agent talking, but are we talking to Saka?
    Morning folks, hope all is good with you, on this Saturday which should have been the end of the season. Except, as we all know, it is far from the end of the season. We still have another ten games to play and the Premier League met this week to ... read more

  • Do Arsenal have to sell the family china to survive?
    It’s VE Day in the UK and 75 years ago today the second world war was officially over. It meant lots of parties and celebration as the country finally stepped into “post wartime”. It was a time for people to appreciate life and what they had and with us all ... read more
