Sky mess with fans but clubs complicit too + Arsecast 376

Morning all, plenty to get through this morning and although the manager’s press conference took place yesterday and there’s team news and such, we’ll begin with the decision yesterday to change the day and time of some of Arsenal’s upcoming games.

A loan again, naturally

Given that it’s pretty quiet, and we’re not quite ready yet to go into the Chelsea stuff that will dominate the next few days, I got to thinking about our loan players. Sparked by the fact that West Ham have just signed a new right-back, and that Carl Jenkinson has

Monreal’s new contract just reward for his performances and professionalism

Reasons to be cheerful

So, here we are 22 games into the Premier League season and we’re top of the table. It’s a great place to be, but also a worrying place to be. There’s happiness at being top, but that happiness is tempered with fear of being overtaken. To me it’s still a

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

Have you ever ventured to Liverpool? I shall spare you the effort, and the horror, by describing the City precisely. It is like Tottenham-on-Sea. The hapless citizens of this crime-ridden and godforsaken cesspool, where missionaries are still regularly burnt, cling to the following things: Popular modern beat combo The Beatles,
