When you think about it, being an Arsenal fan at the moment should feel pretty average. We just sold our 2nd best player to a rival, we sold our most handsome player to a rival, we’re out the FA Cup, we’re playing in the Europa League and top 4 is gone… but life has been SO average over the years, just having a good transfer window feels like winning the Champions League. Even the transfer rumours are better!

Arsenal new boy Raul Sahnelli has identified Jan Oblak as our number one target this summer. The Atleti keeper is, in my humble opinion, the best keeper on the planet. He’s imposing, athletic, and his reflexes are the next level is the next level. ALSO, he can save penalties. He’s the sort of major investment we’ve needed in goal for years. The sort all the big clubs have been making. The Slovenian is also 25, so we could get at least 10 years of value out of him. His release clause is only £90m. (more…)

I’m not leaving the GREATEST transfer window of recent times without a quick positive post.

Arsenal hasn’t delivered a non-banter transfer window since David Dein was unceremoniously fired way back when. After that, Wenger assumed his all-encompassing role, and we haven’t looked good since. Well, that’s all changed. HUSS, Sven, Raul, Dick and Ivan have just shown what happens when you take power from an incapable set of hands and give it to competent people.

Le Grove correctly told you Ozil would be signing a new contract a few weeks ago, so I’ll bask in the glory of getting something right.
