… and it begins!


Really didn’t think we’d be playing on Friday’s and Monday’s without Europe😑


Ditto. That Mon and Fri week with 8pm kick offs is a real pain in the arse.


At least they’re both at home, a bit of a slip up by Sky Sports there!


Nothing out of the ordinary.

I’m much more curious to know about any potential new signings. What’s happening to our much talked about midfield overhaul this season?

Giuseppe Hovno

amazingly, there’s still 25 more days left of the transfer window


Xhaka has a new contract

Arsene's Champagne Football

Joe Willock is off to Newcastle to complete the move.

Kolasinac is waiting for Arsenal to cancel his contact before getting reunited with his mate Ozil at Fener


Lionel Messi is available. He can chill out in our midfield and run the show like Jomo Sono (Orlando Pirates, NY Cosmos and Jomo Cosmos) used to do when Jomo weighed about 320Kg from all the KFC outlets he owned.

A Different George

I saw some highlights. He looks really good. Can’t always tell with the way they edit highlights, though. Everyone looks like they won the ballon d’or.


Heh. I’m guessing his wallet and waist swelled after playing with Pele at NY Cosmos. Interestingly there’s an Arsenal connection to Orlando Pirates in the late 70s with former Arsenal player (won the league and FA Cup) and (youth?) coach, Alex Forbes. Forbes emigrated to South Africa and ended up coaching Orlando Pirates, scouted my father in law and signed him on loan before making it permanent. He became the first white player to play for Orlando Pirates in 1979 (at the height of Apartheid and when the leagues were separated based on race). Forbes was the first coach in… Read more »


Willian already has us covered in the fat player department.


Odegaard is staying at Real, so I hope we get Maddison who can play 8 or 10. Two for one! More worrying is Sp*rs new managing director Paratici, who looks excellent and is buying great looking players. I hope Edu steps up….


… his exit.


I’ll reserve judgement until the end of this window, but can’t help but think someone like Overmars looks way more professional


And doesn’t spend half of his life lounging on a fucking beach.


I know…..surely this is the busy time of year FFS??!


Surely we must be the first club to be told to play on Monday and Friday while the rest of the league has at least 6 days rest?

That week is a UEFA midweek so 7 teams will be playing in Europe anyway.

The FIFA International calendar has dates from October 4th to 13th – so the Palace fixture getting pushed back from the 16th to the 18th is actually great news. An extra two days to shake off the jetlag (especially for the African and South American lads) and get an extra training session in.

Sky Sports were always going to get Arsenal v Crystal Palace on the box anyway for the Patrick Vieira tribute show.

Teta's cult of personality

Thanks for this breakdown. It makes a lot more sense with this perspective

Petit's Handbag

We really can’t complain about fixture congestion this season.

Hakuna Matata

Can’t we?


Arteta probably will.


I fucking hate Friday and Monday night kickoffs.


I fucking hate Xhaka and Elneny in midfield.

Priorities, mate, priorities.
