January Window Gamble Backfired – Don’t blame the players running on empty

I knew I would be asked for my thoughts about Monday night, but I left it 24 hours in the hope I could be rational and constructive. Obviously, the last the defeat to Newcastle, when a win was required was hugely disappointing, but perhaps it was more the manner of that defeat. Arsenal failed to […]

It now seems highly likely that Gabriel Jesus, Man City’s Brazilian striker, will be arriving at Arsenal this summer, as reports suggest talks with the player’s agent and club are advanced.

White to join Saka as an England Starter as Arsenal provide 4 Lions

What an absolute pleasure to be asked by Sun Football, for my thoughts on Arsenal providing four players for the England squad announced by Gareth Southgate last week. It has been a fair few years since the likes of Welbeck, Wilshere and Oxlade-Chamberlain were in and round the international scene simultaneously and I cannot imagine […]
