So, Leicester lost today (vs Hull).
If they lose to Arsenal next week, will Riyad Mahrez push for an Arsenal move? Hope so.
He's signed an extension with Leicester City. I think Arsenal needs a defender or two and a striker (does this sound familiar?). Xhaka should be a revelation, however...
So, we came from not willing to pay a £30 million valuation from Valencia to buy Skhodran Mustafi to agreeing to pay £5 million more because it has been desperate times?
LOL. Even when he's actually doing good business, you can't help but laugh at Arsene Wenger's transfer policy...
But hey, I'll take it. Finally done something, eh manager?
The great impediment to real spending on real players by Arsenal is majority owner Stan Kroenke. Now that he has his moneymaking machine in Los Angeles, maybe he'll loosen the pursestrings a little at Arsenal. By the way, how do you like your CL draw? As a City fan, I assumed that UEFA would ensure that we were drawn in with either Bayern or Barca (former Pep clubs), and sure enough...
I'm a little bit pessimistic compare to most of the fans.
I've read Arseblog, and people seem to be okay with the group, and I get it. PSG with no Zlatan and a new manager. Really good team, but it's easy to expect that they aren't as good of a squad as they were.
And then we got Basel and Ludogorets. I don't fancy a trip to Eastern Europe, but hey, at least it's not Russia on a cold December night.
But Basel scares me. That squad gave Manchester United and Chelsea some fits. They really, really scare me.
As for you guys, hey, atleast this time you're getting Barcelona in the group stage and not at the knockouts. It's weird that Claudio Bravo will right away face his former team. That could be fun, and should be an easy group for you guys to get out. We took one of Monchengladbach's best players, so there's that. Does Brendan Rogers scare you? LOL
At least it's not Group D. Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Sporting Lisbon. What a way to have your first ever European tournament appearance, FC Rostov, here's your reward.
