Pliable vs Reliable: on transfers, rumours and thriving on lies

Morning all. It’s a beautiful day. The sun is shining, the sky is blue, the tumbleweeds are tumbling … oh. Yes, there’s only so long they can manage to stretch out the ‘Petr Cech move complete’ or ‘Arsenal agree terms with Cech’ or ‘Chelsea and Arsenal agree fee for Cech’

Time for me to Cech in again

Good morning, I’m back once again. But not like a renegade master, because my behaviour is not ill. I’d love to tell you I feel refreshed, full of vim, vigour and with my batteries fully recharged, but sadly that’s not the case. It’s not that I didn’t have a splendid

Monday Morning Mince

Good morning and welcome to a brand new week, where it’s absolutely nailed on things will start happening. Today’s my last day standing in for Blogger, so I’m quite sure we’ll sign ALL the players today and there’ll be loads to report tomorrow. If that does happen, I’m claiming the assist,

Warwickshire waffle

Good morning from a farm somewhere in Warwickshire, Englandshire, where I’ve woken up in the brightest bedroom in the world. My room is in the eves of a cottage, and there’s a skylight opposite the bed. It has a blind, but the blind is white, so the effect of said blind

Memories of Dennis, Jenko’s loan back on, and Alexis X Factor

Good morning and welcome to the weekend. A quick round up of stories this morning, as I’m driving from the Highlands to Stratford Upon Avon today, which is exactly how I want to spend six hours of my Saturday. Having briefly mentioned Dennis Bergkamp in yesterday’s blog, Alan Smith has seemingly taken

Friday frolics

Happy Friday! It’s the last day of the week, and probably the last day in the office for most of you with a weekend to look forward to. Me? I’m on holidays now until Wednesday, so yah boo sucks to you. I’m going to spend my Friday doing…well, I don’t quite

Window fitting

It’s the time of year when starry eyed football fans construct transfer wish lists in the hope that their team will find that piece in the jigsaw that propels them to glory. The transfer market shapes the way football is analysed in the 21st century, it frames every question, directly

Fixture list, and (no) transfer nonsense

Good morning, and happy Thursday. We’re over the hump, and the weekend is in sight – it’s now officially Friday Eve, which is as good an excuse for a drink after work as you need. Good stuff. We’ll start today by getting the transfer bullshit out of the way so

Loan deals and Danny Welbeck’s ambition

Good morning to you, and welcome to Wednesday – my last day of the week in the office. Yay for me. First off today, news of a couple of loan deals, and it looks like Carl Jenkinson is off to Sunderland. He had a good time at West Ham last

New kit, Nacho, Tomas, Mesut, and some transfer guff

We’ll start today with news of the new kit from Puma. As you can see from the above image from the official site, all the key ingredients are there: it’s red, and white, and there are Arsenal players modelling it, all of which are good things and generally to be expected

Super Jackie Wilshere

Good morning, and welcome to a brand new week – in the middle of June. How the hell did that happen? The first six months of this year have been a blur for me, both work and otherwise, so for it to suddenly be June is almost surreal. Yesterday’s early
