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...

Shock call up for Arsenal man.

Morning all. Tunisia might not be the strongest of international football teams but I bet that matters not one bit to Arsenal’s Omar Rekik who has received his first call up for his country. Having arrived at Arsenal from Hertha Berlin back in January, the 19 year old...

Five substitutes back next season?

Morning all. Yesterday morning IFAB announced on that following an internal meeting, the temporary amendment to the rule regarding the number of substitutions during a match has been extended for at least another 19 months. Last season, Premier League clubs voted...

Are Arsenal planning to sell Saliba?

Morning all. Pre Christmas, Arsenal were serious relegation candidates. Then on Boxing Day, Arsenal produced an excellent performance to stun Chelsea. The media too. Remove the glaringly obvious errors made by officials pre and post Christmas and I’m convinced we’d...
