The Premiere of the Amazon doco was last night, from what I gather, there isn’t a lot to worry about. It’s an intimate look at the club through a lens you’ve never tried.
You’ll find out Arteta is a bit is a maniac for the club and he gives a shit.
You’ll like the players.
You’ll get the chance to feel what the players felt over the season.
It’s all good news for the club and hopefully it helps us build our fanbase as we introduce a new generation of stars to the world over the next few years.
I’m reading that it drops at 1am UK time. One of the directors shot Undateables. Amazing.
Some pop trivia? Who is the most used FPL of ALL time?
Gabriel Jesus THIS season.
The fans know he’s going to bang. I’m glad that it’s a bi-partisan feeling.
Answer me this: How many do you think opted for Richarlison?
My top 4 prediction this season is that Arsenal and Spurs will probably battle it out for 3rd place… but I gotta tell yah, I don’t understand the hype about their transfer window, I really don’t, I think we’ve had a much better one.
… but hey, just me!
The Premier League is introducing MULTI-BALL which sounds more exciting than it is… it’s basically there to stop time wasting.
Now, here’s a better idea. MLS has a League called Next Pro. It’s basically a development league like Premier League 2. They introduced a rule that says, ‘If a player is down for longer than 15 seconds, they have to exit the pitch for treatment and cannot re-enter for 3 minutes.’ You know what the effect was? Players tended to get the fuck up after a challenge.
Some say that teams could purposefully smash someone down so they exit… well, that’d be a booking or a red card if the intent was injury.
Premier League players have decided NOT to take the knee moving forward, feeling that the message had lost its weight. Listen, it didn’t really fuss me, but I will say, I stopped really feeling something for it because the gesture felt like part of the furniture of Premier League football. The point is to make it stick. I just hope that the league continues to invest in equality. More black and brown managers, coaches, match day officials, and execs at clubs would be a great start. I also hope grounds don’t go back to the dark ages this season. Football should be inclusive and you should always be free from concern. That wasn’t the case last season, we saw violence, discrimination, pitch invasions, even staff being assaulted. We need to do better. Hopefully that happens this season.
Aaron Ramsdale was busy on the internet yesterday showing off that he is now the new Arsenal #1. You can’t say he didn’t earn it. He did a great job last season. Back half wasn’t as great. He’ll need to show a more ruthless level of consistency this season if we’re to kick on. But one thing is for sure, he’s a lot better than most though, and he really went out of his way to own the shirt and the fans hearts last season. A top character and one we all want to see succeed.
Ok, tomorrow, we record a BEFORE THE WHISTLE for our Patreons. Sign up. We’ll be introducing some fancy new branding, talking about the All Or Nothing series and getting in the the mixer on all the Arsenal pre-game stuff. It’ll be epic, you will NOT want to miss it.
Did you sign up? Great. Have a WONDERFUL day. Check out the tech podcast us just did with Ben from CompassApp.IO, and I’ll see you tomorrow.
