ARSENAL REBOOT PROJECT YOUTH

Posted by & filed under News Review.

I wrote about the Manchester City academy approach in mid-January. Long and short: They treat the youth market like the main market. They buy the best kids, train them in City’s vision, then pick off the elite names and flog everyone else. This approach has bagged them £265m in revenue. They regularly sell inexperienced kids… Read more »

SUMMER TRANSFER CHATTER HEATS UP

Arsenal recorded the highest xG against Liverpool this season. Sorry, I mean, ever in Premier League history. Liverpool’s first goal came from zero shots on target. Their scary… Read more »

It’s BIG game eve. Are you nervous?  Yeah, me too. But good nervous. These consequential games at the top of the table are the type I never thought we’d be around again. Arsenal vs Liverpool. Home advantage to us. No one has any idea how the game is going to shake out because we’re both… Read more »

HE’S STAYING

The major news about Cedric Soares leaked out into the ether. He’s not leaving. I’m sorry guys, I know you really put a lot of hope in those Turkish ‘dream move’ rumors. But it’s not to be. The man Don Raul put on £90k a week for 4.5 years will be staying on to see… Read more »
