#452283772 / gettyimages.com The recruitment continues apace, with Debuchy coming in as our first-choice right-back. In the website photoshoot he’s got his arms on his hips (psychologists will tell you he’s ready and in control – that’s a good sign for us. He may also be showing off his armful of tats, two of which […]

#451987854 / gettyimages.com It was one of those days when the stars aligned and Arsenal fans got a bit giddy. The best of days… I suspect that Puma riding the crest of the Sanchez wave might not have been that accidental, either. Someone in the Arsenal PR department will be pouring themselves a glass of […]

I’m sure you’ll all agree that no time is a bad time to shoehorn in an inappropriate Musical Youth headline. Yes yes, I know he plays on the right-hand side. And that ideally we don’t want ‘pass Debuchy on the left-hand side’ to be the opponents’ tactical Plan A. And anyway, why would Debuchy be […]

Wenger, técnico do Arsenal, joga futvôlei na Praia de Ipanema. http://t.co/FkJf12pAx7 [@JornalExtra] pic.twitter.com/uww2XSteSX — Jornal O Globo (@JornalOGlobo) June 26, 2014 Am I the only one heartened by seeing Wenger on a beach having fun?

“Absolutely chuffing blinding”, I said right here in 2005 as Patrick Vieira lobbed his cup-winning grenade at Utd, “it really doesn’t get better than this”. And that, looking back, was just a year after our Invincibles season, a mere two years since our last FA Cup win, and just three years after we’d won the […]

2014 Right hook: “We are not on the market specifically at all.” Left hook: “I believe this year again you will have to wait until July 15 to start going.” 2010 Right hook: “The World Cup will not affect our recruitment” Left hook: “It is dangerous to buy on the back of a World Cup. […]

I woke up at 6am, bright as a button, and football rarely does that to me these days. It must be FA Cup semi-final day. The days have long gone where this involves getting the car ready, hanging the scarves and flags from the windows and slipping @feverpitch’s mixtape into the trusty tape deck before […]

We’ve all been soaking in a Wenger wonderland over the last few days with the looming one-thousandth game of Le Boss’ Arsenal career. I couldn’t let the moment pass without a few thoughts.
