The Arteta revival of Arsenal is proving as spluttery as most expected. The Sheffield United game had positives, but the key thing we’re looking for is a victory and it once again alluded us.

The plan for the moment looks fairly clear. Arteta is trying to make us harder to beat, which in the main, seems to be working. We’re more in control of what’s happening on the pitch, the mistakes have reduced, and it’s in the main, a bit harder to create chances against us.

Update on the transfer situation

Well good morning to you, I wrote a post yesterday and it didn’t post, so you’re getting a double hit of the good stuff today. 💉

It’s Mikel press conference time, I’m still getting over the novelty of not spending 45 minutes trying to decipher the buried messaging of an Unai prezzer. I also like the fact that for the first time in 10 years, tuning into the pregame chat is actually interesting.

Kurzawa has poor injury record and attitude issues… but

So the news is in, Eddie Nkeitiah has impressed the staff enough to earn a permanent move back to London. No Bristol City for him, it’s Holloway Road Nando’s every damn night… what an establishment by the way.

Competition will still be tough for the goal poaching Englishman, but I’d imagine he’ll have chances to play. We have a lot of games coming up, we’ll likely go big in the FA Cup and the Europa League. The Premier League will also be brutal. Part of me wonders if the superior fitness and Bielsa drilled work ethic he picked up at Leeds will have played a role in the decision.
