This was Arsenal's most troubling summer due to the Cesc and Nasri dance. Five first team players came in during August which is crazy. I doubt we will ever see a summer like that one again. Interestingly Chelsea also signed all four of their players in August. We ended up finishing above our rich West London rivals even though our start was, well.. not great. Manchester United signed all of their players before July 20th and none afterwards. Our funny and embarrassing neighbours from down the road only brought in two players which is unlike them. One early and Sir Scotty of Parker on deadline day.

Cesc and Bergkamp once did because you know he has the quality to find that pass. When writing those two names I feel that it is necessary to add the non comparison disclaimer. For once I think I can put the opposition to one side, regardless of who you are facing it takes an incredible amount of vision and the feel for the correct weight of pass to be able to pull it off. It is a skill that many first team players have not mastered and will probably never master. I love Tomas Rosicky to pieces and his threaded pass has never consistently matched the rest of his game. Jack Wilshere for all his talent has struggled with his final pass on many occasions. Away at Tottenham was a stand out game for me where his final ball let him down time and

This for me is the worst of the above categories. My guess is now that anyone with this belief will quickly switch camps to the 'I dislike Evra and why trust him over Suarez' section. It is safer in there. Excusing behavior like this if you think it is correct is wrong, wrong and wrong some more. With an extra wrong on top. I was going to say in my opinion but surely in any decent human's opinion it is wrong. As the name Luis Suarez pops up on Liverpool news feeds, there might be a few of their fans who tell us that coming to Arsenal is a step down or that leaving Liverpool is a stupid thing to do. Listen come and sit next to me for a minute, I understand what you are going through. We've experienced the same. It is tough and painful but you'll get over it and

Lukas Podolski looked a little different in terms of physique, I want to see him play again to see if it my eyes that are playing tricks or not. He looked quicker, more mobile and sharper. Too many times last season he looked too bulky and lacked dynamism. I will be keeping my eyes open for him and hope my observations are correct. His finish was quality, the ball moved in a flash and the keeper didn't even get the chance to dive. I have assumed that Cazorla will start the season wide left and Lukas on the bench but maybe Arsene and Poldi have other ideas. Going back to Zelalem for a moment, the reserve team is quite interesting for the new season especially after seeing so many youngsters depart. Most of the young guys beat Sutton a few days earlier. New number 10 Dan Crowley

Cesc would have a field day I thought. £23m or whatever it was, looked a very good investment. Last season he was up there in the race for player of the year, in a team that were largely pants all season, that takes some doing but while football is football, we are the Arsenal. I don't want to sound like I am jumping on the moral bandwagon here and I probably am but Luis Suarez is a despicable human being. Yes he dives a ridiculous amount and while it is more than our players in the past have done, we have still had a few like Emmanuel Eboue who would go down a little too easy at times. You can deal with that maybe, if you turn a blind eye. He leaves his studs in on the opposition a little too often also but we could dress that up as he is a fighter and wants to win. I mean we've had players in the past who uncompromising at the best of times. But here it is, if I call Suarez a racist I will get people jumping to his

    So let me stop reminiscing of days gone by and let me focus on our Welsh wonder. Let me start off by saying that I think it is quite obvious that Aaron Ramsey is better in central midfield. His partnership with Mesut Özil, his running from deep and his underrated ball winning ability makes him a ...Read more
