There’s little point in going into great detail about last nights draw with Lens as it’s the first game of the pre-season. Until the league campaign kicks off it’s all about the players getting match fit which is a good job really as there wasn’t much to rave about the match. A defensive […]

Ivan Gazidis confirms transfer plans, or rather lack of them. Season finally kicks off with a trip to France. http://highbury-house.com/2016/07/22/ivan-gazidis-confirms-transfer-plans-or-rather-lack-of-them-season-finally-kicks-off-with-a-trip-to-france/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/07/22/ivan-gazidis-confirms-transfer-plans-or-rather-lack-of-them-season-finally-kicks-off-with-a-trip-to-france/#comments Fri, 22 Jul 2016 09:00:33 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=24632 Morning all. The pre-season finally kicks off today with a friendly against Lens in France. A few players are missing like Ozil, Koscielny, Alexis, Xhaka, Cech and Bellerin but the rest should be ready for tough fixture in the heat. Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Matt Macey, Krystian Bielik, Reiss Nelson, Marcus McGuane, Ben Sheaf, Julio Pleguezuelo, Stephy Mavididi, […]

Big boost in striker chase. Shame Arsene didn’t take England job. http://highbury-house.com/2016/07/21/big-boost-in-striker-chase-shame-arsene-didnt-take-england-job/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/07/21/big-boost-in-striker-chase-shame-arsene-didnt-take-england-job/#comments Thu, 21 Jul 2016 10:24:49 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=24621 Arsene Wenger and Arsenal received a welcome piece of good news in the last few days, as Juventus reportedly informed compatriots Napoli that they will not be paying the release clause for the transfer of Gonzalo Higuain. Both Arsenal and the Italian champions have been heavily linked with the former Real Madrid man, with Wenger […]

Arsenal have finally got their man. After upping the offer to Bolton a bit, the northern club has now accepted a bid for Englishman Rob Holding. While this signing will not excite every Arsenal fan, it’s best to remember where the neighbours signed Deli Ali from before writing him off. Holding is equally […]

What would you do if you were Lauren Koscielny, sign a contract extension at Arsenal or rub your hands together with glee knowing that one of the best clubs in the world want to sign you? Koscielny is 31 years next month old and all he has is a couple of FA Cups […]

Arsenal bid £25M for defender? Bacca heading to The Emirates?

It seems Mr Higuain’s agent has been busy this summer. Having spoken out about a potential move to Arsenal, the player is close to signing a four year contract with Juventus so if true, another striker has slipped away. I’m not blaming Arsenal of course, unless faffing around with low fees and wages is […]

They seem very intent on being more competitive next season and their first move was signing Granit Xhaka. Moreover, they are even willing to spend up to £80 million just to get the […]

Thomas Vermaelen set for Arsenal return? French striker steps up in training… http://highbury-house.com/2016/07/13/thomas-vermaelen-set-for-arsenal-return-french-striker-steps-up-in-training/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/07/13/thomas-vermaelen-set-for-arsenal-return-french-striker-steps-up-in-training/#comments Wed, 13 Jul 2016 11:53:35 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=24556 Morning all. So it was true. Arsenal or Sky Sports and Thierry Henry opted for the latter. I’m surprised Henry was given such an ultimatum in the first place but there you go, it’s Arsene’s way or the highway. Our old Frenchman has gone but I’m sure he’ll return one day, when Wenger has gone […]

There’s an interesting article in the Telegraph this morning which suggests Thierry Henry is leaving the clubs coaching setup. This is apparently down to the Frenchman working for Sky Sports instead of committing to his role at Arsenal full-time, mind you, the author of the article has added that he believes the scathing […]
