Ozil irony at the Arsenal circus

By | August 12th, 2017|0 Comments

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 the Arsenal over a 4-3 with a defence that is [...]

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

By | August 7th, 2017|0 Comments

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. Arsene Wenger’s men have drawn first blood and, although it is dangerous to be optimistic regarding Arsenal, [...]

Elneny’s not a ninny at the back

By | August 3rd, 2017|0 Comments

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 his reading of the game and timely interceptions. He can [...]

‘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 it. £275k per week is probably not close enough. Nevertheless, [...]

Why not bid for Vidal?

By | July 24th, 2017|2 Comments

If Inter Milan are reportedly lining up a £45m bid for Bayern Munich's Arturo Vidal, why don't Arsenal follow suit? One way to stop this Alexis Sanchez transfer saga would be to sign one of his international team-mates, and Vidal is something special. He's not only got skill, but he has a phenomenal work rate too. Vidal would be an amazing signing and cheap at [...]

No smoke without Szczesny

By | July 20th, 2017|0 Comments

I've got mixed feelings over the departure of Szczesny. In my opinion, he was potentially an Arsenal great. He had many of the attributes that you want want in a keeper: presence, handling ability, agility and confidence. However, his confidence often turned into over-confidence and, after the alleged revelation (which obviously was some time ago) that he was smoking in the showers hit the headlines, [...]
