PSG vs Guingamp. Painful viewing.
Very little movement on the Arsenal front.
Yesterday we had our first glimpse of Spurs and United. Very difficult to work out the true value of those games, because West Ham were absolutely awful, carrying on their shocking form from last season. Newcastle weren’t much better.
Spurs really were fun to watch. Incisive and intense, they eventually broke Rafa’s 8 man block by going right through the middle. Spurs have some fabulous players, but I really would be surprised if they rode the injury luck wave in the same way they did last year. Take Alli, Kane or Eriksen out of the side and you’re struggling.
What an interesting weekend of football we’ve had so far. Key takeaway?
No one gives a rats backside about defending.
Well, not totally true. City kept it fairly tight against a battered Brighton and Spurs also kept a clean sheet. But my oh my, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea were shambolic!
Hands up if you love Giroud a bit more this season?
We live in a chaotic world. Nothing makes sense. Billionaire trust fund kids are promoted as saviours of the working class. Chunks of our society are bitching like snowflakes about the indignity of not being able to say mean things to people that don’t look like them. Football clubs are raking in hundreds of millions, but can’t justify a living wage for hard working locals.
… but in the melee of madness… Arsenal will always provide comfort and stability.
