The summer of 2001. That was the worst one. In my youth, football free summers were negotiated in a number of ways. Up until the age of 14 or 15, I was a keen player of the sport. So summers were largely spent taking advantage of extended daylight hours on the concrete five a side … The post In...

Time now for the traditional Arseblog season preview in which I take a look at the squad – as it stands – and assess our readiness for the new campaign. We’re aware the transfer window remains open, and have factored that in as much as possible, but it’s really about where we are now, and … The...

So, Arsene Wenger held his first press conference yesterday, and he was asked about many of the things I wrote about yesterday. Alexis Sanchez was high on the agenda, and while there was nothing too fresh about his future, the news that he’s going to miss one or two weeks with an abdominal strain...

You might have seen via Twitter that Anam (@ArsenalColumn) has retired from the Tactics Column. A big thanks to him for all his contributions down the years, but the show must go on, and we’re pleased that Lewis Ambrose will be taking up the mantle from this season onwards. His first column is a...

A bad start to the day folks, we have no coffee in the house. That means my morning cuppa has to be tea. Now tea is fine, it’s grand, it’s all right, but not first thing in the morning. It doesn’t have the KICK required when you lift your I’m-sore-coz-I-was-playing-football-last-night carcass out...

I had a dream last night about our season opener against Leicester. Some of the details were a bit off, because Claudio Ranieri was still in charge for them, while Arsene Wenger was nowhere to be seen and Jens Lehmann appeared to be our manager. I say appeared because he wasn’t in the dugout, but...

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @Gunnerblog. On this week’s show we look back at yesterday’s Community Shield victory over Chelsea, the impact of new boy Sead Kolasinac, the performance of fellow new signing Alexandre Lacazette, and why there are...

Match Report – Player ratings – Stats – Video Three. That’s how many fingers I’d be holding up this morning if I were a borderline sociopathic football manager who counts the Community Shield as a real trophy, because I’d also be using the Emirates Cup and International Champions Cup to add to my...

It’s the Community Shield today, a game which feels like it has some importance but when it comes right down to it, it really doesn’t. Following the FA Cup wins over Hull City and Aston Villa we’ve taken part in this game and beaten the reigning Premier League champions. We hammered Man City 3-0...

Hello, a quick Saturday round-up for you – although it’s funny to think that by this time next week we’ll have played our first Premier League game of the new season. Anyway, that can wait. Arsene Wenger has been speaking about the Europa League, and what he might do with his squad for that. Perh...

Hello everyone, I’m a bit knackered today, yesterday was a pretty long day, but an interesting one. I was at Members Day, and I watched the training. A few things stood out for me. 1 – Jack Wilshere looks sharp. Maybe it’s because it was a relatively leisurely paced session, but he seemed to me ...
