The one that saddens is me a little is the news coming from Swansea that Arsenal and …

Ashley Football 6 Comments

I think most Arsenal fans have by now given up on the possibility of the club securing Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic, but the Gonzalo Higuain saga has rumbled on and it seemed as if the club was in a good place to tempt the Real Madrid striker to come to the Premiership.

Arsene, if Arsenal sign Ashley Williams, please don’t make him captain

Ashley Football 2 Comments

Remy? Samba? Are Arsenal sizing up a raid on QPR in the summer

Ashley Football 3 Comments

So will QPR escape relegation this season? My heart says yes, but my head thinks they might be heading for the drop. And if Rangers return to The Championship there might be some significant plundering for Premiership managers on the hunt for a bargain or two, and Arsene Wenger is likely to be first in the queue.
