A day when a result really didn’t matter. Life did!

Morning all. Each and every day there are people suffer heart attacks, strokes or something else life threatening, and as I know from personal experience, age means very little. Many will die because of it, others might be more fortunate. We might think we’re as fit...

Patience, it’s the Arsenal way.

Morning all. The Euros of 2020 finally kicks off tonight after a year’s delay. Turkey take on Italy in Rome at 8pm in the opening fixture. From tomorrow though, football fans will have three fixtures available to watch each day. That’s a lot of football, 270 minutes...

Which is your favourite Arsenal ‘battle’?

Morning all. I saw a headline from the Mirror which covered the battles between Patrick Vieira and Roy Keane. Whilst not condoning their behaviour, the passion they showed was incredible, either that or they simply just hated each other. From 1996 through to 2005, the...

Ainsley Maitland-Niles or Rúben Neves?

Morning all. Daniel Ek is in the news once more because he’s not giving up on trying to buy Arsenal. The Mail report he’s preparing to increase his Arsenal takeover bid to more than £2bn after his opening offer of £1.8bn was rejected. The Ek camp are ‘not going...

Pre-season and who’ll miss out.

Morning all. If the last two England performances are anything to go by, Bukayo Saka could soon be back home, or at least enjoying a break from the game. Boring and uninspired, that’s England under Gareth Southgate. A bit like Arsenal last season really. Jack Grealish...

Not another ‘Arsenal missed out on’….

Morning all. If the Emi Buendia deal came down to money then Villa are welcome to him. If the player really wanted a move to Arsenal, he could have said no to the move to Birmingham. Sometimes, things just don’t work out. Assuming Arsenal really were in for the...

Areas to improve…

The early promise last summer which saw us win the FA Cup and the Charity Shield, our hopes for the season just gone soon turned into disappointments. Whatever the reasons might have been, and I know we’ve already discussed some in our comments, the reality is,...

Xhaka the diplomat.

Morning all. I’ve copied this from Sky Sports, a repeat of what Granit Xhaka is reported to have told Blick: Of course I read (about the interest). But now I’m 100 per cent focused on the national team here. That’s more important than Arsenal or rumours...

Ballard or Saliba?

Morning all. Some of the Arsenal players who’ve been out on loan last season shared a mixed bag of joy and disappointment. Guendouzi ended the season injured whilst Kolasinac and Mustafi suffered relegation with their club. I don’t think Torreira had the best of times...
