Is Canadian Striker, Jonathan David a gamble Arsenal should take?

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. Jesus is reportedly keen to rekindle his working partnership with Arteta and will hope for more consistent first team action ahead of the Autumn […]

Rashford or Calvert-Lewin depend on Arteta’s desired 22/23 formation – Either, neither or both?

Yesterday I read that Arsenal are vying with Atletico for the signature of Lautaro Martinez from Inter, and are favourites to land Dutch winger, Cody Gakpo from PSV. Both are exciting links but yesterday’s news suggesting Arteta was ready to lure Marcus Rashford and that Arsenal had a pre-contract deal with Dominic Calvert-Lewin, are perhaps […]

How Arteta can give us Martinelli, Smith Rowe, Saka and Odegaard in a Boxing Day Cracker!!

Today there seems to be much discussion around who Arsenal should buy in January as a long-term successor to Aubameyang, who seems unlikely to play gain in the near future, and Lacazette, who is out of contract in the summer. The name being banded around is Brentford’s Ivan Toney and I can certainly see how […]

Two first half hattricks from Jermaine Pennant and Robert Pires, leading Southampton 6-1 and the clock strikes to the 89th minute of Southampton’s miserable visit to Highbury in May of 2003. The Arsenal faithful arise to applaud the efforts of hattrick hero Pennant as he leaves the field of play to be replaced by a […]

Arteta Optioneering – If not Mikel then who?

I want to state up front, this is not me joining the #ArtetaOut campaign, although, there is a decision to be made in the next few days. Stick and give him until December to see if his players (if he can get any in) can turn it all around, or Twist and get someone in […]

Auba’s Dilemma – Cursing Arsenal Captains Past

The summer break has arrived and Auba has decided to keep up with a bit of post season fitness. He grabs his headphones and hits the gym. In a moment of spontaneity, he hits play on the ‘Made For You’ page in Apple Music. As you know, the algorithms have got pretty sophisticated these day. […]

Is it Decision Time for Arteta on Pierre Emerick Aubameyang?

In recent columns I have argued that Arsenal Skipper, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, can play the central role, in Arteta’s preferred, though flexible 4231. In my own mind I have been weighing up what he offers in the role and comparing it to what Lacazette offers and, in truth, trying to convince myself that our Gabonese […]

The Night Thierry Henry Destroyed Leeds at Highbury in the Premier League – An I was there occasion!

 The Arsenal face a traditional old foe in Leeds United in February. Amazingly this match will be the first league meeting between these two giants of English football at The Emirates. This is because the Yorkshire Lilywhites were relegated from the Premier League in 2004 when were still at Highbury, the season Arsenal won the […]

Waving goodbye to the solution – the 2 players Arsenal can’t afford to lose

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 […]

Now that our skipper has committed himself to the club for the next three years it may be time to consider where he might end up in the great pantheon of wonderful striking talent that have played for The Arsenal.
