Imagine living in the home to the lower left?! What surprised me the most when I visited Highbury was just how close to the stadium the homes were.

I see Raheem Sterling is to re-join the England squad, now that his personal problems - all of which have been detailed and discussed in the media - have been resolved.

I'm by no means social media savvy, nor have I searched the media particularly deeply, but I have seen no trace whatever of an explanation, nor even any comment on Ben White's absence. Does anyone find that strange?

Yes. It seems very odd indeed.

In fact it is surprising in today’s climate that it is possible to keep things under wraps like that.

I did see a suggestion that he is a gay man and being threatened in some way of a public 'outing'. Absolutely unsubstantiated and probably complete bs.

Looks like she could cause a few personal problems.

Might solve a few too.

Alex Ferguson playing for Rangers against Arsenal in 1967. Surreal.

Looks like we have a goalkeeper who can stop penalties. Hein stopped 4 penalty kicks from going in. We scored 2 Marqui and Smith (not Emile Smith Rowe I think).

Just seen a clip of the penalties. Truly dreadful all round.

Hmmm. I think it could be a bit more nuanced than “vile”, Rotter.

Times have changed to a remarkable degree. Wouldn’t be a problem for me, nor I’d hope for this august forum.

I’d go further. I think Gooners generally would be entirely supportive - witness the rainbow banners that adorn the stadium. I think the media would absolutely laud him and the football world would totally embrace and support him. On a personal financial level, he would absolutely clean up.

Who but an obvious neanderthal knuckle-dragger would - or could - criticise, risking getting nicked for doing so? I actually think most crowds would applaud him. To be fair to our nearby neighbours, they applauded Saka in support for the stick he took after missing that pen. I think the whole nation would breath a collective sigh of relief that someone has finally done it.

I actually think I’d love those rumours to be true.

As my father said to me many years ago ‘I don’t care what other people do and neither should you, unless they make it compulsory’ . Good advice about a lot of things. I only want him to be a great player for us. Full stop.

I’ve got a feeling for Vieira in the second half of the season. Technically he’s there and has incredible ball striking. He missed nearly all of pre season and so these 4 weeks with the coaches and in Dubai are huge for him.

So this story has appeared in the UK media about White.

I smell a fix in the first 2 quarter final games with only European refs. Brazil get Oliver who sent off Martenelli in the 2 booking stitch up. Obviously has a problem with Brazilians. And a Spanish ref for Argentina Netherlands. I will be interested to see who France and England get.

Interesting games. We've moved on from upsets in the group stages , to seeing real quality in the knockouts, with the odd wildcard still there to spice it up.

I agree with your earlier comment about this WC being very engrossing! Morocco keeping a clean sheet all the way through 120 mins and the penalty shootout was particularly pleasing.

Thanks Gaz - reminiscent of Charlie George.

I was actually warming to the more salacious explanation.

I had read previously that he doesn’t really like football and that none of his family were interested. Also that he doesn’t watch other games. For him it is a job.

If anywhere near true then I would imagine that he wouldn’t enjoy a month long squad environment.

I can recall going away several times for work with several colleagues for an intense ‘brainstorming’ week locked away in a remote hotel. By the end of the week I couldn’t wait to get out. Far too much of a ‘good’ thing.

Rumour about us lining up Evan Ndicka on a free transfer in the summer. The free transfer market is going to be crazy in the summer.
Ndicka is a left sided CB, 6ft 3, a good passer, currently with Frankfurt.

From March 2022. Thing is, the girl in this photo looks a little bit different from the Sun photo. Besides, couldn't give a toss. If Ben swings both ways, so be it.

Well that’ll teach them not to play Martinelli. Who would have seen that coming?

Martinelli comes back to Arsenal as Brazil get knocked out.

So is that now just Saka, Ramsdale and Saliba left at the world cup

Well Martinelli certainly hasn’t been overplayed.

I mean it’s going to be crazy because there are so many excellent players who are available on a free. Lots of teams are going to get bargains

Neymar wanted the 5th penalty for the glory but Brazil didn’t even get that far. Brazil let Marquinhos take a decisive do or die penalty before Neymar and he’s never taken one in his life.

70% of shootouts never get to the 5th taker. The 4th penalty is the decisive penalty in 55% of shootouts.

If casual fans know this how do professional teams not know this and implement their strategy accordingly
