Pre-season is finally over and it’s all eyes ahead for the start of a new Premier League season with a mouth watering fixture against Liverpool on the horizon for Arsenal.
If I’m honest, I can’t say I’m that excited for the new campaign, certainly not as excited as I usually am because I don’t believe enough has changed for us to overcome the flaws that have proved so fatal for us over recent seasons.
I live to be proven wrong, however, and want nothing more than for Arsene Wenger to put all these new Premier League super-managers to the sword.
Can he? I hope so, but I’m not so sure.
As they got ready for the new campaign, Arsenal banged in 17 goals in pre-season, the same number as Liverpool if I remember correctly, although we conceded fewer despite having only half a centreback.
Watch them all and enjoy:
