For those who don’t know, I am a massive @Arsenal supporter.
The Gunners had a memorable second half to their campaign last year after looking like a mid-table club by the end of 2012.
I’ll admit that my faith in the touch-line strategies of Arsène Wenger wavered for the first time last year.
This summer, rumour has it that Wenger has anywhere between £70-100M available in his transfer war chest but we have all heard that before. Nevertheless, the debt on the world-class Emirates Stadium is becoming increasingly manageable, Financial Fair Play is attempting to level the wage landscape, and the presumption is that Arsenal have some advanced funds available to them subsequent to the renewal of their shirt/stadium sponsorship and the signing of a new kit deal with Puma (which has yet to be officially confirmed).
Arshavin, Squillaci, and Denilson have all said goodbye to Holloway, Bendtner reportedly has the interest of five clubs, and hopefully, a few more dead wages will be out the door soon.
Truthfully, I can’t wait for footy to return.
