Euro 2016 waffle, Keane’s bluntness, Wilshere’s chance

It’s very quiet this morning even though the European Championships start tomorrow. I’m looking forward to the football but in very much a neutral capacity. I know Ireland are in it, but there’s just something about Martin O’Neill that puts me off. I don’t even mean the prehistoric stupidity he

Now we play the waiting game

Ok, so yesterday I jokingly referred to the Jamie Vardy thing as a saga, and then it sort of turned into one. With people expecting a decision one way or the other – would it be black or white smoke that emerged the Vardine Chapel? – he decided that he

Vardy ‘delay’ about contract duration + Walcott’s right-side climbdown

Will he? Won’t he? The Jamie Vardy Saga©® drags on. That’s right, a move none of us knew a thing about on Friday has now gone all the way until Tuesday without satisfactory resolution. It’s hardly even scratching the surface of the stuff we’ve gone through before. Waiting for players,

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @Gunnerblog. On this week’s show we start with a shocking story about how James was almost shot dead by trying to run as fast as a motorbike, before moving on to the big news of the moment

Jamie Vardy thinking about Arsenal

Vardy’s mind is made up, the rest is all part of the pantomime

Good morning. It’s a bank holiday here today, but here I am as ever. Glutton for punishment, perhaps. I was out for a few beers last night and was hungry so I was thinking about going for a kebab. However, I didn’t have enough beer to convince myself that I

Vardy is happening as Wenger looks to add some edge to Arsenal

Morning all. Following on from yesterday’s shock news about our interest in Jamie Vardy, it’s clear that this is very much a real thing and at this point it would be a huge surprise if it didn’t happen. From what I’m told discussions between the clubs have been going on

Wenger after Jamie Vardy + Gazidis Q&A

Well, I was expecting this to be a pretty quiet Saturday morning but yesterday evening the Guardian reported that we’d triggered Jamie Vardy’s release clause. Blimey. Reports suggest it’s around £20m, but it could be a lot more than that with add-ons etc, and it looks as if this this

Gazidis: Everything is awesome! + Keeper set to leave

Tonight at the Emirates Stadium there’s an end of season supporters event. There’ll be a Q&A with Lee Dixon, some wine plus cheese and pineapple on cocktail sticks, while before that the Arsenal Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis will ‘welcome’ those fans and shareholders who have managed to get an invite.

Calum Chambers Gonna Change Your Mind?

The immediate future of Calum Chambers has been subject to plenty of discussion over the last few weeks. The 21 year old struggled for minutes this season, starting only 2 Premier League games. He made 12 appearances overall in the league, compared to 22 in 2014-15. He acquitted himself well

Remember when people said we should sign [player name]?

Usually when I wake up in the morning my first thought is what I’m going to write about on the blog. Sometimes it’s very clear, there may be an obvious theme or topic dictated by events or happenings or, you know, the football. Other times not so much but I

Arsenal players at euro 2016 + more shirt number changes

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.

Olivier Giroud hat-trick Olympiacos

Boo for Giroud, Chambers out on loan, Walcott confusion

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
