    Mikel Arteta: Mid-table Mikel

    I was just listening to the radio the other day and there was a guy being interviewed about his shop that sells books as props to film and TV companies. Their business has gone through the roof since lockdown with people wanting to look 'well read' on their Zoom calls. Some people asked for...

    Odsonne Edouard

    It makes me chuckle whenever I see Bamford mentioned. Under 18 months ago AM couldn't believe that a 'donkey' 'Championship plodder' like Bamford was getting picked ahead of 'Wonderkid' Nketiah. How opinions of both players have changed in such a small space of time! But it's a big no from me...

    Edu's Transfer Targets: Summer 2021

    Anyone with an Athletic subscription care to tell us who they suggest and why?

    Mikel Arteta: Mid-table Mikel

    I voted 4, almost a 5 but downgraded after more thought. I think Mikel has had it pretty tough in some ways and I have sympathy for him in a few respects. The squad was way to big to be harmonious and I felt that a few unhappy players was almost inevitable when you have 34 first team players...

    Edu's Transfer Targets: Summer 2021

    I was impressed with Abdallah Sima last night against Leicester, looked a handful and took his goal brilliantly. I Googled him and links to Arsenal popped up. Only 19 years old, 6' 2", quick, can play anywhere across the front line and 11 goals in 14 appearances this season. One to keep an eye on.

    Mikel Arteta: Mid-table Mikel

    There have been a few alarm bells for sure but I am willing to at least wait and see before judging him on his man management. We had a squad of 34 players at the start of the season which is almost unmanageable. Only 14 players can take part on a matchday so that is 20 that are being left out...

    Hector Bellerin (Out)

    Everton could be a rival for whoever we go for this summer, they are bound to be looking for a right back with Coleman getting on a bit and no specialist right back as back up.

    Non-Arsenal Transfers Thread: Summer 2021

    I always said Doherty was only ever good in Wolves rigid system and was a terrible full back. Nice to get one right for a change :lol:

    Kieran Tierney: Tesco’s Finest

    Tierney being injury prone is a myth, 15/16 - 33 appearances 16/17 - 40 appearances 17/18 - 55 appearances 18/19 - 40 appearances 19/20 - 25 appearances 20/21 - 24 appearances You don't make 217 first team appearances by the age of 23 if you are the injury prone crock that he is made out to...

    Non-Arsenal Transfers Thread: Summer 2021

    Yeah I agree, I don't rate Ming's very highly myself. When you consider Ake went for nearly £40m what would Villa want for Ming's, certainly more than he is worth by some margin.

    Non-Arsenal Transfers Thread: Summer 2021

    Screams of a made up list to me, from under the radar to household name, two left footers, two right footers, different age profiles etc.

    Bernd Leno: Chosen One

    This is a harsh assessment in my opinion. Every goalkeeper makes mistakes every now and again, look at Alisons two howlers in the same game against Man City last week and he is regarded as one of the best in the World. These things happen, you can't pick and choose if they happen in a fairly...

    Premier League 2020/2021: 10th is the new 8th

    I believe so as long as a team from outside the top 6 doesn't win the FA Cup like us last year 'stealing Wolves spot who finished 7th.
