What Next For Jack?

What should have been a big few days for Jack Wilshere has turned into yet another setback for his hopes of making England’s World Cup squad this summer. Selected for the friendly matches in Holland and against Italy at Wembley, the Gunners midfielder was hoping to show he was back to international form. Instead a […]

This Time Next Year, Rodney

The announcement today of an extension to the ‘partnership’ between Emirates and The Arsenal is a welcome one. Reportedly worth £200 million that is a genuine increase in our commercial activities which needed to grow to allow our burgeoning wage bill. Reportedly we have also been able to negotiate the deal in such a way […]

Apparently this is hump day. no longer Wednesday. I think I will stick with the latter. It has been a mixed one and included getting another opportunity at getting to watch the Arsenal women in action on the FA WSL Facebook page. You can, as I type, see the full match here. It was an […]

Welcome Henrikh Mkhitaryan

I don’t often watch Sky Sports News but I did this evening purely by chance and caught the moment that the exchange deal that took Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United and brought Henrikh Mkhitaryan to North London was announced.

You are, aren’t you? Go on, admit it it. You’re still smiling (with a couple of obvious exceptions-sorry D and C). This was the first match following the alleged shift in the balance of power and we were widely tipped in the media beforehand to be staring a defeat in the face. I do understand […]

The release of 89, superbly documented by our expert film reviewer in the last week, has distracted from the usual tedium of the interruption of club football as well as our defeat at the Emptihad. Gradually though the focus is switching back […]

A late afternoon was spent watching England and Scotland, so forgive the international flavour of the blog. I understand well that many are now disenchanted with internationals for the way they interrupt the League season. I was, maybe still am, but I have taken some pleasure in the performance of the home nations in this […]

Since Arseblog News broke the story about Stan Kroenke’s bid for Alisher Usmanov’s shares we have been waiting for a response from the Arsenal’s second largest shareholder. Today that response came and after a quick scan social media responded positively to the apparent rejection of Kroenke’s bid. “In recent days there has been speculation relating […]

The two defeats leading into the international break has made this fortnight a pretty miserable time. Mesut Ozil, Arsene Wenger, Ivan Gazidis, indeed anybody connected to the football club appears to be a target right now. Not that some of it isn’t warranted. Ivan in particular needs to pay more attention to the messages he is […]

It’s Tuesday evening and I am watching my second Champions League match of the day. It’s a very strange feeling to say the least. Casually, I wonder if Ivan and Arsene are watching and have the same feeling? After nineteen consecutive campaigns we are the little boy with his face pressed up against the sweet shop […]
