I am so old I can add Terry Neill and Bertie Lee to that list.

At least he's not Jewish.

Why are you objecting to an Arsenal Manager being Jewish. You anti Semitic p***k.

Tough start for new manager but could be ideal time to play City with a lot of their players at WC. Also the club seem to be very proactive in transfer market which is good to see and trying to get deals done quickly rather than haggle over every pound.

Ehh.. you're seeing so many moves early this year because it's a WC year and teams want their transfers done and not severely delayed by waiting till after it's over. Also in many cases there's the real fear their transfer targets may play well in the WC and hence jack up the price the parent club demands for them.

And the transfer window shuts on August 9th before the season starts this year.
That was never a square ball!!

I meant the fact that Torreira has a 25 million release clause and Arsenal have paid 30.

Lads looking for some help. The young lad has decided he is a gooner, I have tried to beat it out of him but to no avail. We are heading to London in October, would the trip to the Emirates be good for A 9 year old? If there is a match on (looks like Leicester) would I get tickets easy enough?

People do be selling their match day tickets but can be tough enough. Depends how new manager gets on. Try the @DublinArsenal handle on twitter, they may be able to help. Emirates is a lovely stadium with a huge shop your son would love. Also do a stadium tour.

Smith Rowe looks like a huge talent and Guendouzi seems like a good signing. The Arsenal players seem to have bulked up a lot, even Cech.

Guendouzi looked really good early on but when Atletico realised he was weak in the tackle they fairly exposed him. Definitely not a defensive midfielder at the minute.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

Another decent passing performance from Guendouzi. Still weak in the tackle. Aubameyang and Lacazette look fresh and lively in both games. Pressing game by Arsenal...and when they attack he seems to want to flood their half at speed. Plenty of speed down both wings - Bellerin and Auba on one side at times, Nelson on the other.

Smith Rowe impact again.

Some middlin goalkeeping from both PSG keepers today.

Emery completely different style to Arsene. Plays every ball standing on the sideline. Don't know if he's just helping to bed in a system and needs to do this or if it's his way.

It's what Arsenal needed. They were in their comfort zone under Wenger. He wants them to play high press, whether he can get Ozil to do that too, remains to be seen.
