Burst on the scene as a young lad at Arsenal and looked as though he was gonna be a great. It never really happened but had a good career all the same. Sad..

Just read that Jose Antonio Reyes was killed in a car crash today.

Unpopular opinion of the day but he was doing 135mph according to police reports, so he hadn't much regard for life including his own.

Summer transfer business has been good. If Tierney and a centre half is done then could be a big season ahead.

What centre half are they after?

Fairly top-heavy alright. Still lacking a quality midfielder and a defence.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

Ceballos looks the part. Torreira and Guendouzi a year older. If Holding and Bellerin back early then defence largely solved but need one more centre half. The age profile has come down and a lot of talented youngsters coming through. Just need rid of Mustafi.

That's optimistic alright.....Arsenal need to sign KT (or another quality LB), Bellerin is just ok,  good attacking, average defending. Holding might come good, but to really challenge for the top 4 and the league itself they need 2x proven, EPL ready, top class CHs.......and have done for over a decade.   

The rest of the business = great.
