HOW ARE WE ALL TODAY?
I’m feeling pretty damn fine.
The good news? We once again have a full squad of players to choose from. It now seems very likely that every player is going to head out to America tomorrow. That is good news.
Players transfers seem to be taking their sweet time, there’s not a lot of gossip running through the system, but rest assured, the club is working hard on new deals.
If we can get a left back and a midfielder in the next week, we’ll be a much better side than the one that ended the season.
Main concern is injuries and keeping players fit. Watching Harry Kane collapse on the floor during preseason isn’t the vibe I want to see in America this week, but it was a sharp reminder… these players get put through the wringer, our season crashed because we couldn’t maintain the fitness of our key players without Europe, what is being done to make things better now we have Europa League?
Well, for starters, we have a deeper squad of talent. We’ll start the season minus problematic low talent, low attitude players. That’s a really good place to be.
… but. The most important element comes from the coaching staff. They have to make sure Arteta rotates his players this season. Big Mo, Eddie, and Cedric all proved capable deputies last season. We do NOT have to beast our starting 13 every single game. If w do that again, things will go south in December and March again. We can’t afford for that to happen this season. The stakes are simply TOO high.
YOU WANT FEEL-GOOD VIBES?
Jack Wilshere retired from football. Sad.
Jack Wilshere is back at Arsenal as an U18 coach. Yay!
GROWN MAN WRITING YAY WHAT IS THIS?
You wait, when Arteta exits, the clamouring for Jack as the next first-team coach will be MASSIVE.
Good luck to him.
YOU WANT SOME SCHADENFREUDE?
Mesut Ozil, the most wronged footballer of all time… has had his contract cancelled by coach number two at Fenerbache.
But I thought Emery, Freddie, and Arteta were the problem?
Johnny on the podcast cut a classy muted view on this that maybe the player is missing something in his life.
For me, cutting an unclassy tone, I think he has it ALL in his life and doesn’t need football.
He should have retired years ago. Passion is gone. He’ll find another club, do the same, and the cycle will repeat.
An outrageous visionary of the game who gave up.
YOU WANT A WEIRD RUMOR?
Using builder identification language, Big Gabriel as we’ll now call him (it’s usually too many Dave’s on a building site), is attracting sticky rumours from Juve.
The player is a fan fave, he’s had ups and downs, but he’s pure talent… but everyone has a price.
Is Don Pep G doing his underling a favor here? Is he buying De Ligt for £76m, so Mikel get take all that money to bolster his title dreams this summer?
Who knows, but if Juve took that money to Arsenal, I’m not sure what we’d do? We have to sell someone painful at some point, right?
Imagine the damage we could do with that money ON TOP of the money we’re already spending.
Right, short one today, I have a NEW podcast that I recorded with Johnny. I am VERY sorry we messed the sound up.

It’ll be all the before the whistles next season AND any European AFTER the whistles.
