Spanish midfielder Denis Suarez is about to sign for Arsenal on loan from Barcelona.
In style, he’s a very mobile attacking No 6.
A 25 year-old dribbling playmaker with pace, Suarez could fit in quickly and help the team push for the top four.
Barca want a clause that makes the move permanent at the end of the season.
If president Bartomeu, one of the good guys in football, says the deal will happen this month, that’s good enough for me.
Denis Suarez is fast and has the class to design fast breaks and fit in with Laca and Auba.
Being sure that Spurs would beat Chelsea, I backed them to score first.
Kane buried a penalty in the first half. But that was the only goal of the game and we hardly saw Dele Alli, so he must have been marking Jorgino again.
Last night , instead of watching Manchester City 9 Burton Albion O, we watched Channel 4’s Brexit drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the sinister Leave guru Dominic Cummings, who linked up with Cambridge Analytica boss Bob Mercer. He works in the same field of computer science as my sister-in-law.
We saw how CA developed software that could connect Facebook to the UK electoral roll, and how the Referendum became a dry run for the Trump campaign
The Guardian was wrong to give this C4 drama two stars.
It was slick and entertaining and told us a few things we didn’t know. And I love dramas where London is almost a character in the story, like The Sweeney and Sherlock and Spooks.
This tale opened at Tate Britain in Pimlico, just over the river from Westminster, and reminded me of a private view at the gallery.
Although I rarely remember things visually, I recall that night quite clearly. It was evening, the café was almost closed, most of tables been hidden away to allow work by cleaners who would begin as soon as the front door was locked.
Two members, a man and a woman, asked if they could join our table and we chatted to them.
They lived in South London within walking distance of Selhurst Park at the time when Wimbledon were also playing home games there when Crystal Palace were away.
He said that on a Saturday, if the weather was decent and he was in the mood, he’d ask the kids if they wanted to go to the match. They’d walk down to the stadium, buy tickets and enjoy the game.
The way the guy described his family weekend resonated because I knew that spontaneous era had already disappeared forever.
As we sat talking in the Tate café that night, I was facing the grand staircase and suddenly a posse of seven or eight people swept past us, led by Home Secretary Theresa May, who stormed up the staircase, leaving her young entourage stumbling to keep up.
Today May is Prime Minister.
But only just.
Her biggest problem isn’t Jeremy Corbyn. It’s that there are two Tory parties in Westminster.
