There ARE other teams(we'd have no-one to play otherwise) and here's where all-comers can discuss the wider world of football......

This Emirates Cup everyone has been taking the piss out of them for years for pretending it's a proper trophy, didn't realise quite how tinpot it is.

Arsenal and Sevilla both played two games, Arsenal won one, and lost one (to Sevilla). Sevilla won both their games. Guess who won the trophy?
Haha! Was talking to Bruce in the pub about that last night. Won on more goals scored. Someone on the radio described lifting that trophy as 'The most arsenal thing ever'.
Oh, but surely just for one day, we could fight and we could win
And if only for a little while, we could insist on the impossible...

Oh I do hope that they go for an open-top bus parade. :D

Thought I’d revive this thread with the very annoying name given it’s not been posted on for several years. I was tempted to start a new one with a better name :wink:

Took my twins to the first home match of the season today. Beat Burnley (not hugely convincingly) 2-1. New loan lad, Ceballos, had a very good home debut and I think Pepe will be great working with Auba and Lacazette in an attacking role but our defence looks shaky still. Yes, we have Tierney to come in and Holding and Bellerin to come back but I think we are missing a player of Vieras quality to sit in front of and protect our back 4. Emery’s insistence of playing the ball out along the floor from Leno could come unstuck against better teams to I suspect.

Interested to read what others think about Arsenal’s chances this season? I think we had a good transfer window and I’d hope we make top 4 and perhaps a cup final but I can’t see us troubling City or Liverpool sadly.

After nicking Rob Holding off of us for a derisory amount, you can hide (some) of your shame by loaning him back to us as part of his rehab. :)

Our need is nearly as great as yours at the back but you can have Mustafi on a free if you like?! ;)

I’m hoping this is Holdings season. He was looking really good before he got injured and he’s a gooner hero now for refusing to sign a spurs shirt offered to him pre season!
