It was another quiet weekend as we wait for the arrival of proper football, but that hasn’t stopped the little transfer beavers working really hard to convince us all they know stuff they really don’t.

Arsenal, the most sercretive of all clubs when it comes to transfers, are reportedly preparing or making more bids than I can count. That’s quite a lot of scoops for reporters for a club that does not leak.

It’s almost as if someone, somewhere, is making things up.

You know it’s bad when they start saying we’re trying to sign Jonny bloody Evans.

The club may or may not have made an offer for Mauro Icardi, they are considering an offer for Mustafi, or have made one, or both. Bruno Peres has been scouted and an offer made. Allegedly.

Lukaku, Szczesny, Lacazette, Yedder, Mahrez and more were bubbling away over the weekend.

In actual news, the club launched their new away and third kits in the middle of the night. That away kit. Yes, please!

If you’re tired of transfer nonsense, we also produced some feature pieces this weekend. Perhaps you’d like an anaylsis on how Rob Holding did in his first Arsenal outing?

Maybe, like Sylvain, you think Wenger has gone crazy.

Finally, it’s August. Get your fixture wallpaper for all devices free of charge here.
