Marco Reus Laurent Koscielny

Marco Reus one of three standout stars on the way to the Emirates, but Arsenal must still address the need to replace Robin van Persie

Ahoy hoy there Gooners. After Wednesday’s capers, I trust all of your backsides have returned to what passes as normal and the prospect of scraps against a not-as-formidable-as-they-once-were Borussia Dortmund, the less than worrying Belgian side Anderlecht and Turkish fear-mongers Galatasaray, makes the tension against Besiktas now seem worthwhile. For me, Marco Reus, Steven Defour […]

Edinson Cavani Radamel Falcao 01

Could Arsenal have Edinson Cavani lined up once Champions League football is secured, or is Yaya Sanogo the answer?

Good afternoon you Gooners, welcome back to the column. What have I learnt from the two opening fixtures after the cracking Community Shield win? *Oh, the daughter wants the TV on…okay, let’s sort that out, what’s on CBeebies…? ‘Postman Pat’ – blimey, is he still employed?! He gets one package a day, invariably loses it, […]

Good afternoon you ‘orrible lot. Right, settle down, get your copybooks out and note down the key lessons from last Sunday’s game at a gloriously sunny Wembley Stadium. ‘Five Things Learnt From The FA Community Shield Victory’: Alexis Sanchez needs to improve on his passing A solid, promising debut from Arsenal’s smokin’ hot Chilean, in […]

Arsenal’s SIGNING of the DECADE (Not Sanchez or Ozil) will WIN the Premier League title for the Gunners this season

Hello Gooners, this is a post I have long looked forward to publishing, as fellow Arsenal fan Jake Schuster (who is a Boston-born MSc Sports Nutrition student currently studying at Loughborough University, with experience working with elite and professional level athletes in four different countries) and I managed to have a chat; getting in-depth about […]

Arsenal’s BLAST FROM THE PAST! New look Gunners ready to go to war on the Premier League

How are we doing, Gooners? Enjoying the glorious weather? Kits all ironed and ready for The Emirates Cup this weekend? Are we all enjoying Puma’s new offerings – and is it bad that I quite like the third one?! The departure, after two decades, of Nike, had me reminiscing – they were the kit suppliers […]

Santi Cazorla 07

Iker Casillas is the WRONG target for Arsenal, but SELLING Santi Cazorla COULD fund a move for Angel di Maria

Afternoon all you lot. You find this column on the eve of Arsene Wenger’s first USA-hosted Arsenal game. New York Red Bulls and a certain Monsieur T. Henry await an Arsenal team who, once again, look a little light at the back and upfront. With plenty of time before the transfer window closes, there is […]

Jack Wilshere FA Cup

Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere 0-0 The Royal Family, MPs and Celebs; Role model contest ends in bore draw

Footballers as Role-models? Really?!

Arsenal should go for Medel, Bender, Valdes and De Vrij and why the transfer window is like the Dentist’s Chair

Well, it’s started, hasn’t it?! Mathieu Debuchy…Alexis Sanchez…who else will arrive at N5 this summer? What a pair of signings. It struck me, last week, whilst I was contemplating life from the horizontal position of a dentist’s chair (for an hour) just how much the Arsenal transfer windows were like visiting the dentist’s. Firstly, it […]

With the summer’s transfer rumours in full swing, and players such as Alexis Sanchez and Serge Aurier being linked heavily, here are my top Wenger signings so far. I think there is argument for Mesut Ozil to be amongst these players, but after one season, it is hard to tell…at least for me. It is […]

RATINGS: Which Arsenal World Cup stars have shone and flopped in Brazil?

Gunners in Brazil – How have they rated so far? Jack Wilshere – 6/10 Jack, in a similar fashion as several managers of late, has decided to view the game from another – lower – level than what is considered ‘normal viewing practice’. Jack’s somewhat unorthodox approach of viewing the game unfold before him from […]
