I was having a wonderful dream this morning – I was about to play for Arsenal in the final game of the season. We were waiting in a room, kicking a ball against the wall, and outside that room was the tunnel. The team sheet came out. I was there.
Morning all. It must be tough being Olivier Giroud. Handsome, extremely well paid, very good at football but not quite ‘World Class’ Olivier Giroud. Only the 24 goals last season for the club’s leading scorer, yet people forget the goals and the deft assists and label him the worst Arsenal
Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @Gunnerblog. On this week’s show we discuss the Champions League final and some of the awfulness that took place at the San Siro on Saturday night, from the result to Pepe to Mark Clattenburg’s tongue. We then
Good morning from a warm sunny Dublin – and if that isn’t the final piece of proof that we’re living a crazy world where anything can happen, I don’t know what is. I’m just sorry that I have no crops for I believe sunshine is great for the growing of
So, the Champions League final, disappointingly tame in the end. Real Madrid won it on penalties, Cristiano Ronaldo – who had done approximately nothing all game – spanked home the last one after Juanfran had hit the post. And of course he took his top off. This is his life.
Good morning, a very quick coffee fueled Saturday morning round-up for you. In the world of football in general, the big story was the appointment of Mourinho has the new manager of Man Utd. I think I’ve already written a bit about that this week, so there’s no need to
Good morning. What a week it’s been everyone. Not only did we sign a player for tens of millions of pounds, we also got two shirt number changes. I know I’ve mentioned this before but people’s interest in shirt numbers is enormous. I don’t really understand why but then I
“11:15, restate my assumptions: 1. Mathematics is the language of nature. 2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. 3. If you graph these numbers, patterns emerge. Therefore: There are patterns everywhere in nature.” That’s a quote from one of my favourite movies; Darren Aronofsky’s Pi, about
So, in a move that surprised absolutely nobody, Granit Xhaka became our first signing of the summer yesterday. The Swiss international moves from Borussia Monchengladbach for a fee believed to be in the region of £25m, rising to £30m+ with add-ons. The midfielder becomes our third most expensive player of
Good morning, it’s getting quiet now. The cold winds of summer whip over the hills of no football and we anxiously await the announcement of a Swiss bloke. I thought I’d spent some time working out hilarious anagrams of Granit Xhaka’s name but the X pretty much makes for poor
So Louis van Gaal got sacked. I’m with Arsene Wenger when he says it’s a shame whenever a manager gets sacked – except when it’s Jose Mourinho who gets sacked. He doesn’t say it’s a shame then, although to be fair he doesn’t say anything. Some might call it diplomatic
Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @Gunnerblog. On this week’s show we look back at a weekend of leaks, bad dancing, new kit, new numbers, the FA Cup final, and the imminent return to the Premier League of a massive twat. We chat
