Memo to Arsenal supporters: be realistic.
Unai Emery is a very good coach who doesn’t know the Premier League yet.
So forget Manchester City on Day 1.
That debacle is history. Don’t expect quick fixes to a situation that Gary Neville says will take three more transfer windows
There is talent at Colney and plenty of energy. Lacazette will start at Stamford Bridge.
But there are too many passengers. Yes, Monreal is a consistent pro but the new Head Coach needs at least 15 good fit pros.
My best guess: The teams that will win the most games this season will be those who have the same managers as last season: Pep’s champions, Klopperpool, and your least favourite neighbours, Tottenham.
They haven’t signed anybody, and Kane was a zombie at Newcastle, but Spurs will have another good season. You read that here first.
Gooners will have to be patient and realistic. And I think 95% will be.
Injured in training, midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne will be out for at least three months.
Yes, Manchester City have a fabulous squad. But KDB will be missed because he produces so regularly
Last season he got 16 assists in 37 Premier League appearances and 8 goals.
In Russia he was ten times better than Neymar and twice as good as Pogba.
It’s no secret that Kevin been my favourite footballer for the last three years. De Bruyne is the only player who has ever reminded me of Alfredo Di Stefano, the greatest white man ever to kick a football.
