New Look Arsenal…

It’s been a long summer. We’ve seen some players leave whom we didn’t want to see go, and we’ve seen some players leave that we did want to leave. We’ve seen a handful of players come in through the last couple of weeks, but in the last 2 days, we’ve signed 5 big players, 3 … [Read more…]

It’s happening… Mertesacker, Santos & Park Chu-Young…

Less than 36 hours left in the transfer window and it’s official… Sky, Twitter, Facebook and all blogs are going into over-drive… but this is a good kind of overdrive. It’s the kind of overdrive that we want… Arsenal are signings players… Andre Santos, £6.2m Yes, finally, a left back… considering Arsene’s excuse of letting … [Read more…]


So yesterday was a sack of arse. Evra didn’t get Frimponged, and Arsenal conceded 8 goals. On the plus side, Ashley Young did get 20 points in my fantasy league team and Arsenal scored 2 goals at Old Trafford in the league for the first time since 1984. There are silver linings everywhere, even in … [Read more…]

I can be optimistic about the squad as it is, despite being dissapointed that we’re so lacking – I have a genuine belief that one or two … [Read more…]

Arsenal 0-2 Liverpool. Bad start continues.

So. 2-0 to Liverpool. With the tweets flying about yesterday, some knew it was coming. I for one was confident we would win, but losing that match, unfortunately, was not surprising. The starting XI was: Szczesny, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Jenkinson, Sagna, Frimpong, Ramsey, Nasri, Arshavin, Walcott, van Persie, with a bench of Fabianski, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chamakh, Miyaichi, … [Read more…]

Walcott [and all fans] question manager…

[Negative blog post alert] It’s Thursday 18th August 2011… and roughly 12.5 days away from the close of the transfer window. As things stand, we have a serious lack of depth in our squad. Arsene promised experienced players at the beginning of the summer, but the main transfer activity has been the sales of Clichy, Eboue, … [Read more…]
