Much has and will continue to be written about Bukayo Saka and his exploits in the famous Arsenal shirt. A shirt, lest we forget, that he has worn since he was 7 years old. 2 seasons ago, after the disappointment of non-selection for the 2020 FA Cup win, still aged only 19, virtually singled handed, […]

I’m still not saying it but …… We are going to …..
January 24, 2023 0
I’m still not saying it What was our aim at the start of the season? For me it was to finish in the top 4. I have no doubt that for the club it was very much the same, so let’s examine where we are in relation to that goal. In the table on […]
19 years on… is Mudryk Arsenal’s 2023 Jose Antonio Reyes January Injection?
November 7, 2022 5
Football history, yes, even before the Premier League, tells us that the most successful teams strengthen when they are on top. The great Liverpool managers of the 1970s always added 1- or 2-star signings each summer as league champions, even though in those days with only 1 substitute, it usually meant demoting a fan favourite. […]
What do you think of Tottenham? Arsenal Legends weigh in.
October 4, 2022 0
5 ways to become an Arsenal legend. 1 – Arsene Wenger – August 1996 I tried to watch the Tottenham match on television in my hotel yesterday, but I fell asleep. 2 – Patrick Vieira – September 1996 David Dein: “Patrick do you speak any English?” Vieira: “Yes Mr Dein”, Dein: “What do you know?” […]
Is Canadian Striker, Jonathan David a gamble Arsenal should take?
May 12, 2022 0
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?
March 31, 2022 2
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!!
December 24, 2021 5
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 […]
Exclusive – Ex Arsenal defender Justin Hoyte on Viera, Ashley Cole and The Invincibles

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?
August 17, 2021 1
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
June 7, 2021 0
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. […]
