Waving goodbye to the solution – the 2 players Arsenal can’t afford to lose
December 3, 2020 0
Waving goodbye to the solution In 41 years of supporting Arsenal I’ve been gutted just a handful of times when certain players left the club. Limpar, Santi, Overmars, Petit, Song, Aliadiere, Bielik, Amaechi and Yunus Musah spring to mind. Strange list, perhaps. Henry, Fabregas, Vieira, Sanchez etc… I understood. Their reasoning made sense to me […]
Saka to be the Alternative Internal Creative Solution to Houssem Aouar
October 5, 2020 3
I wrote this on Sunday morning, but it has been on my mind for ages. Those who chat to me privately will know that I was never overly concerned about the signing of Houssem Aouar, not because I don’t admire him, more that I don’t see the pressing need. Yes, I acknowledge the lack of […]

It is no surprise in these quiet times that the media is rife with transfer speculation and our beloved Arsenal and our pro-active young coach seem to be linked to a ludicrous number of players in various positions. At this stage most seem baseless either because we are being linked to players in positions that […]

When you think of Spanish players representing Arsenal, many will think of Cesc Fabregas, others may think of Santi Cazorla, maybe you’re a Nacho Monreal fan? I wonder how many think of Jose Antonio Reyes. The Seville speedster, with a penchant for destroying Real Madrid teams almost like he took extra pleasure from it. Reyes […]
The Very Best of Arsenal at The Emirates Era – Part 1
March 26, 2020 0
As a lack of football and Arsenal continues and times look bleak, we at GT decided we would do a three part special on our memories so far of the Emirates era, 14 years after moving to Ashburton Grove from Highbury. It would be fairly safe to say I think that no one is placing […]

EVERYTHING JUST CHANGED Positives, Needs and Hopes What have you based your opinion on Mikel Arteta on? I’ve been coaching for 30 years this January.

Can you name all of Arsenal’s Spanish Stars since Reyes became an Invincible?
February 25, 2019 0
Given the nationality of our head coach, Mr.Emery, I wanted to pick out some of the most noted Spanish players in our club’s history. Denis Suarez, whilst only a loan signing, also adds to the Spanish vibe we have currently. So who else from Spain has either helped us or even hindered us, over the […]
