Let’s crack into a delicious portion of hot off the press Gooner news.
Bernd Leno: What does it mean?
Arsenal were rumoured to have a £50m budget this summer. We just dropped £25m on a keeper. Petr Cech might take the #1 jersey, but it’s hard to see past Leno starting. Cech’s form has been shoddy, he can’t play with the ball at his feet and at 36, it’s clear his reactions aren’t what they used to be.
COME ON PEOPLE, ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!
I mean, entertained is maybe the wrong word.
Are you not captivated by the ruthless efficiency of a well oiled Arsenal machine?
Listen, you don’t need to feel bad about it. We all did it yesterday. Yep, we all cheered a Spurs player because he took MIGHTY England to the land of 3-Glorious-Points. What an adventure. Say it quietly, but I quite like Gareth Southgate. He’s level-headed, he talks intelligently about the game and he’s managed to make the World Cup far less of a spectacle than it usually is.
