    So.... Cheick Tiote is dead. Reasons unknown.

    Liverpool are back in the Champions League!!

    Sadly so will Manchester United...

    But Arsenal won't :')

    Thoughts for next season?

    In a weird position where a lot more interested in what happens off the pitch at Arsenal than on it.

    How will the director of sport be handled (and the beginnings of prying power away from Wenger)?
    Who will replace Dick Law (Hazzah!)?
    Who will take over the youth academy (Bergkamp rumours have been gathering steam) and will that have any effect on the power distribution?
    Will they pull a miracle out of the bag and have Sanchez extend his contract?
    If/when he goes, who can they find to try and replace that hole in the squad - both football product and overtures at prestige?
    Will Walcott finally get the boot?
    Will Gazidis say anything other than smarmy PR sound bytes?
    Will Kroenke shave that 'tache?

    ...basically I have no expectations beyond more of the same with Wenger resigning for the next two years football wise. So, how they prepare his succession has become a lot more interesting for me seen as they shit the bed this season and clearly had no back-up plan to anything other than him resigning this time around.

    The eternal Wenger will outlive the universe.


    If I was an Arsenal fan Arsene can do whatever the hell he wants... until someone gets a gold one, I'll let him do whatever he damned well pleased...


    Also FFS, is this not the most boring transfer window to date?

    After that horrific 3-3 to Watford, it's nice to come away 2-1 vs Hoffenheim

    How's your start to the season?

    Flitting madly between 3-2s/5-1s and 0-0 bore draws (leeds united). Just sold the only player to score any goals last year to Burnley for £15m, poor guy.

    To be honest we're looking OK so far, but I won't believe it until Easter. The replacement for Wood is HUGE.

    At least you have the excuse of being down to 10 men.

    Someone tell me when a) the board realises that signing with Krooked Kroenke instead of Gangstermov was a stupid decision and b) Arsene and whoever is behind transfers and contracts get a clue or leave the club.

    Fucking clowns.

    We have, for over 10 years, needed better centrebacks and at least one proper holding midfielder. Anything else is a waste of time and money until that is addressed.

    How in the literal fuck do you go and buy a German centreback and manage to come away with one that's a colossal pile of shit.

    Everyone was bitching about how Arsenal lacked height and he literally just signed the tallest defender he could find :')

    Also... Sevilla in a few hours

    Sure, but his positiong and reading of the game is appalling, may as well have signed a lamp post (also, the lamp post would be quicker).

    Arsenal: upstaging all comedy shows near you.

    Get the feeling we have slipped into being an Everton - hovering around the europa league places but never truly threatening to go any higher, and will be further cemented when Alexis and Ozil leave. Woo!...
