Ozil offers ‘O’ defensively: hence clean sheets

Having just watched Arsene Wenger's press conference before the forthcoming WBA game, one thing that struck me is how honest the Arsenal manager is. One of the questions, inevitably, was about Mesut Ozil's recent absence, and I am not going to doubt that the Germany international has been suffering from inflammation of the knee. However, [...]

Dick Law’s departure and what it means for Wenger

Dick Law's departure at the end of this month comes after a turbulent transfer window, where it was much ado about nothing. The exit door did spin a bit, but the entrance still retains the cobwebs that Arsenal fans have become accustomed to. The question is: who is to blame for the lack of quality [...]

Reaction to Ornstein’s shocking revelations

We all know that something is dramatically wrong on the field and with all the reported shenanigans going on off the the field, it is difficult to see how Arsenal will turn this disappointing start to the season around. One of the most shocking bits of news, if you can believe it (and I can) [...]

Gaping holes at Arsenal remain unplugged

There are so many problems at Arsenal and, although Wenger says we live in a world of 'transparency', we know that's not the case when we read that a transfer fee is 'undisclosed'. Nevertheless, the media are capable of hounding agents and other clubs to find out how much money changed hands and it's thanks [...]

Ozil irony at the Arsenal circus

Showtime at the Emirates is something to behold, especially when all the drama ends happily, as it did on the opening day against Leicester. As usual, it was an exciting white-knuckle ride for Arsenal fans and, according to Ivan Gazidis, that's what Gooners want. I'm not sure I'd agree, as I prefer a 1-0 to [...]

Arsenal earn first silverware of the season – will there be more?

Source: Arsenal via Facebook Arsenal’s victory over Chelsea in the Community Shield was well fought for and well deserved. There are a few points that need to be discussed, but I, for one, am happy with the performance and fairly encouraged that the Gunners can shine this season.

Elneny’s not a ninny at the back

Although Wenger has had a fair bit of stick in some quarters, including from me, about his decision to try Elneny at centre back, I think even the detractors have to admit the Egyptian's performance against Sevilla in the Emirates Cup was impressive at times. On the plus side, Elneny's distribution was excellent, as was [...]

‘Sickie’ Sanchez is no longer an asset

As readers of this blog may already be aware, I am a big fan of the Alexis Sanchez's technical ability. I've always been of the opinion that Arsenal should break the bank to keep him happy. If he wants £400k per week, just give it to him or at least offer him something close to [...]
