Twenty-four hours on and it has been interesting seeing the different takes that people have on the performance of the team and certain individuals against PSG. Of course that isn’t a surprise.

A ‘window of opportunity’ has presented itself. There is a gap of an hour between England finishing and Alexis, I mean Chile, starting. I may even stay up long enough to see Alexis hop off the pitch on his good leg. Seriously, how much bandaging did he have on just to get through training with […]

The boss has been speaking and snippets have appeared on Arsenal.com so I was quick to browse the team news for Sunday. The combined reference to Danny Welbeck and Per Mertesacker being expected back in four to five months took me a little bit by surprise. In my head I had thought that Danny was […]

The completion of the first pre-season warm-up fixture leads into the second phase of our preparation for a renewed onslaught on the Premier League. Today the squad, such as it is at present, jetted off to the United States for matches against MLS All-Stars on Friday and Chivas de Guadalajara on Monday. It is starting […]
