Just read Fulham have spent over £100m. That is crazy for a newly promoted club with a tiny ground

My early season prediction, both Manchester sides and Liverpool battle out for the title finish top 3. We get 4th, Tottenham and Chelsea batle for 5th and 6th.

The world cup has gotten Pogba's confidence and form back. The big question is, is his relationship with Mourinho irreparable? I was hoping he'd get sold but not likely now, perhaps Martial will get sold if not loaned out. I'd still love to have him. I think his form is strictly down to a young player not shown any confidence in him by his manager.

No one expects much out of us but I think (maybe I should say hope) we will surprise a few folks no matter what the scoreline is in the first 2 matches. Tough way for Emery to start his Arsenal managing career with City and Chelsea but so be it.

Yes Kiwi! That is great stuff. Never heard of him so thanks for putting him on my radar. Even enjoyed the Redknapp twitches. Very different guitaring but try this.

I think he's a much better player in a team that plays with real attacking intent. Not a Mourinho team. Nevertheless, he's quality and I expect him to do some damage as the season progresses.

Personally I can’t see him tearing up many trees. I reckon he might get into double figures for either goals or assists. In part because of the set up to be fair yes, but he’s just not clicked there.

He was a likeable character, quite child-like really with his boundless energy, then he carried on being child-like and toys started coming out of the pram - you could sympathise why perhaps, but it means I won’t be sad as he fades at Utd.

I can' believe that either of you saw the penalty. From the first tiime I saw it I agreed with the decision from a ref I do not like and who made a numberof unfair bookigs , conned by the Utd players.

I want him to fail and fail miserably, very, very badly. He has joined a (unfortunately) long list of ex players who I (and most fans) consider traitors: Nasri. Adebayor, van Persie, (I am intentionally leaving out Fabregas..hehehe), etc.

Will Ramsey join that list?

I'm not going to make a big fuss out of the City result if its a loss. If its a big loss, yes. But a par for the course loss as we have had to them over the last several years? No. It's early days. I expect the Chelsea match in the 2nd game to be more competitive but I'll wait till about September, after a handful of matches under his managerial belt to stat expecting things out of Emery's side.

I'm still excited not to have Wenger on the touchline. That fact alone has me excited.

Salma Hayak probably gets me more excited but I won’t criticise what does it for you.

Our transfer window seems to be something of a mixed bag:

A couple of very promising young players, one of whom looks like he is exactly what we have needed for years and the other potentially a Cesc type young talent.

A goalkeeper yet to fulfil his early potential and apparently a little error prone.

An ageing mediocre CB who lacks pace.

A free transfer who has experience, aggression and tenacity and could offer some much needed guidance to Bellerin as well as competition.

I think if we can be better organised and play with greater intensity, especially without the ball, we may have done enough to at least challenge for 4th spot but our defence looks well short of what is required at the very top level and the loaning of Chambers leaves us with incredibly inexerienced and raw back-ups (unless Monreal is considered a back-up).

In my opinion we needed a younger better CB and also needed a wideman.

I'd say at this moment the window is a 7 out of 10, but could be seen as much more if the two kids turn into worldbeaters.

I was surprised at how paltry the transfer budget was. Oh well. Emery seems better able to squeeze more out of this squad than his predecessor.
Both Totts and Chels away today. Toon away usually a bit tough for London clubs. We'll see. New season is always a little exciting. Weekly escape from life's doldrums despite the frustrations supporting a club brings.

Attack-wise, I think we will be fine. It's the defense that worries me.

We'll find out tomorrow around 5:30 pm whether we have more of the same to come.

Unfortunately it seems the knives will be out if it doesn't go well. Couldn't we all agree to give Emery at least a few months to see if he can organise things with the players he's brought in amusing the players he's kept.

Yeah- when you hear a pretty mediocre ref has given Utd a pen at home in the second minute, it would be easy to go into whinge mode, but it was clear cut. Instinctual rather than considered, but 100% a pen.

Shame Schmeichel missed that injury time header against his dad's old team. He looked furious too!

Most supporters will give him a few months unless it's particularly disastrous. That doesn't mean we can't criticise in the meantime. The transfer business was unimpressive in my view.

Sperz look good. Not much of a surprise since their world cup contingent is brimming with confidence.
They know each other well. They need key players to stay healthy (Kane, Delli).

Mmmmm, it’s an enormous chance for the younger players, Nelson and smith-Rowe particularly as we didn’t sign anyone resembling a wide player. Maitland-Niles looks like he’s going to be a left back for a month or two which is a shame but let’s see. The slightly bloated squad works well for Europa league imo. If we can get to the knockout stages without a first 11 player involved then bonus. And then if someone hasn’t played for 5 months they can head off in Jan on loan or otherwise. Selling Welbeck now would be a mistake I think. He should share Europa and cup games with Nketiah.

Having said that, call me a coward but I’d take 0-1 down to City tomorrow now tbh.

I find this watered down football format total bollox ....games on different days

Pandering to television companies and the couch potatoes of the world .

It's like being ravenously hungry ; going into a restaurant on Friday having the entree and a small wine then being told you have to come back Saturday for the main course and return on Sunday for the dessert and a Drambuie .

We've waited three months for some action and now get it on the drip feed

A new season has arrived .......... sound the trumpets and play the whole bloody lot at 3.00 pm Saturday .

At Highbury half the buzz at half time and the end ; looking with anticipation across the ground to watch them flip over those little boards indicating results of your rivals .

Spurs losing away to Sheffied United ...... hee haaa :15laughter:

When digesting our result I want to see how ManU , Liverpool , Chelsea , Totts and Citee got on at the same time .

Man U played Friday , Spurs , Chelsea today , wait for ours tomorrow , Liverpool god knows when ........ Grrrrrr **&*&^%$# :blob8:

You are obviously more eclectic than myself Old Man ... no surprise there ... obviously a talented guitarist but unlike you I have to like the tune as well I can't appreciate the performance just for the skill .

I'd imagine you are more like my brother in tastes [ God help you had the same personality ] he goes to a concert Bob Dylan , Rolling Stones , Leonard Cohen and having paid his money decides beforehand it will be good . a night out etc etc and so that's the way it turns out .
Even if the artist turned up blind drunk or didn't show he'd find a positive to justify the outlay

Mark Knofler's about the only guy I know who can get away [ in my book ] with very slow guitar picking
"Why Worry ", Going Home ...... maybe Hank Marvin .

I wish I was in London for this new era. Interesting how it all turns out. It may be dawn of two eras actually. This may be the dawn of Josh Kroenke having a more hands on approach with the club. I've always thought long term he is the one we need to suss out as to his intentions. He will be the boss of Arsenal long term. So far, he seems better than his father. The little we can ascertain from his business/sports professional history, he has a bigger desire to win things than his father and has already had a more day to day operational experience with a professional side. That bodes well. I'd rather we have different owners but if its between Josh or father running things, I'd much prefer Josh.
