Forgive what will be largely an England biased post even though our lone three lions representative, Danny Welbeck, wasn’t in the starting line-up against Tunisia. Yesterday’s matches ended in mixed blessings for the Gunners. Mesut Ozil posted some impressive stats but a very ordinary Germany were deservedly beaten by Mexico. Joel Campbell, still technically a […]

As I type this latest offering I also have one eye on Alex Iwobi’s performance for the Super Eagles against Croatia. He’s the second Arsenal player to have started a match in this tournament. Mohamed Elneny was the first and he, by all accounts, had a very good game against Uruguay. Sadly I missed it […]

Merci Indeed

I can picture the moment vividly. Stevie Bould bringing the ball into midfield and chipping the perfect pass into the breaking runner through the heart of the Everton rearguard. Tony Adams majestic swing with his left boot sends the ball crashing into the back of the net, he makes a quarter turn and stands, arms […]

It was good to see a wide range of issues discussed during Arsene Wenger’s pre-West Ham press conference today. It started in familiar fashion with Arsene fielding questions about who is or isn’t fit and who will he rest for next Thursday. We’ll consider those issues on Saturday. Quite the best question brought up up […]

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 […]
