Time to concentrate on transfers…

Morning folks. First of all, apologies for the weekend of no blogs. Having returned from South Africa last week, I quickly got onto another flight to Malaga to attend my cousins wedding in Marbella. What a wedding it was. It was unbelievable. At the same time, the end of the group stage of the world … [Read more…]

A Very Arsenal Round Up (& a little WC)

Morning All… Before I get on to the whole load of Arsenal related news I plan to talk about, I’m just going to touch on the world cup and specifically the tense set of games yesterday. First of all, England’s group of the US, Algeria and Slovenia is a group that England should have topped … [Read more…]

England vs Slovenia: Match Day Live

Afternoon fellow Gooners, Today sees England play their biggest game this year and Fabio Capello has chosen a very narrow line up, with four central midfielders. Perhaps his plan is to shoot shoot and then shoot. It’s strange not to see Arsenal target Joe Cole in the line up – I have to say that … [Read more…]

The World Cup takes centre stage…

Evening fellow Gooners… I’m back in the UK a few days earlier than anticipated… I had to give up my trip to Durban to see Nigeria vs South Korea as well as a match in Port Elizabeth to see England take on Slovenia in the last group game… why? My beloved work… No sarcasm intended … [Read more…]

Greetings from Cape Town…

A quick blog post this afternoon as I wait for my taxi on route to the airport – am leaving Cape Town after a bitterly¬†disappointing trip (in footballing terms) which saw a terrible game from my beloved England against an Algeria team who before the match said a 3-0 loss would be a good result… … [Read more…]

I don’t know about you, but at 9am this morning, I was on the BBC sports website, eagerly waiting for it to be out. Now it’s finally out, who’ve we got? … [Read more…]

New Signings, New Signings, New Signings

Whilst the World Cup is taking place, the transfer market isn’t normally the busiest – for clubs, players and managers, it’s hard to negotiate and hard to get a player to think about a move whilst in the middle of the biggest International tournament of their lives. We’ve already signed Maroune Chamakh and will have … [Read more…]

World Cup, Update III – Exciting Times…

Afternoon fellow Gooners… Today’s blog is your third installment of my World Cup travels, and in case you missed it, the last installment was the update about my trip from Johannesburg to Rustenburg for the England game… and of course, the first installment was the trip itself to South Africa. In the meantime, JAT has … [Read more…]

Rob Green for Arsenal!

Just kidding. Green and Mark Schwarzer, two ‘keepers regularly linked with a move to the Gunners, have recently shown that they are capable of some absolute howlers. It does make you wonder whether Arsene will stick with his current batch of goalies – who else out there is available and good in enough to be … [Read more…]

World Cup Update, Live From South Africa

Afternoon all, and greetings from Johannsburg and South Africa. Yesterday was an adventure and a half, driving up to Rustenburg to follow England – a four hour drive up there, and then a two and a half hour drive back – was definitely an adventure. One thing England do is support their team and there … [Read more…]
