62 players signing and 26 leaving – a heart warming story and an absolute shocker



By Sir Hardly Anyone

By far the most heartwarming and positive story in the media about Arsenal is that about the Arsenal-sponsored North London United.   If you want to read something truly positive do read that piece.

By far the most ludicrous is that headline in the Express that says “Man City ‘increasingly concerned’ as Arsenal take note in transfer market”

That “newspaper” (I use the word lightly) then explains that headline by saying, 

“But Arsenal may be keeping their eyes on the number of key City stars linked with a departure. The Gunners are widely expected to bolster Mikel Arteta’s squad again this summer, while City could have their own ranks weakened. That, in turn, could strengthen Arsenal’s hopes of finally beating their rivals to the league title.”

Just behind all that for a non-story is “Arsenal face new Champions League rule as UEFA makes key change after Euro 2024 trial”.  It’s a minor tweak to the rules which of course applies to every club.

But if it is the tittle-tattle of transfers you want

The three more players Arsenal are buying and the three more leaving – including the shocker – Saliba.

  1. Anybody who suggests we are buying Pickford is irresponsible in the extreme.

  2. Mike in Atlanta, I think you have to remember that normally 98% of these transfer stories are untrue – insofar as they never happen.
