Kane definitely initiated contact. And I'm an Arsenal fan so no love for Kane. But its never the first one who initiates its always the retaliation as you know.

Yeah there are videos of #17 digging a hole at the spot.


This comes with a ton of bias but for my money Sokratis is the best centreback in the world. Good bit of business from the Gunners on that one.


There are three guys on Bayern that are better.;) He didn't exactly have a great last half of the season for Dortmund, maybe the change of scenery will do him some good.

The old lady would immediately become one of the top 5 club teams in the world if that happens.


Too add to the insanity, the latest has M'bappe to Real. That'd be a great pick-up for them.

Anything is better than Mustafi. Then again I'm giving all players a clean slate with Emery. A lot of fans don't like that Sokratis is older. Same with Lichtsteiner. For the next two years these vets need to get Arsenal back into Champions League. That's at least how I'm looking at the signings. And bridge the gap to the younger players who likely aren't totally ready yet and the influx of more money that comes with Champions.

Sokratis and Manolas would make the best centreback pairing out there! If I’m not mistaken Arsenal already have another young Greek CB Mavropanos.

Still a few pieces missing for Arsenal to get back into the top 4. Not a fan of Ozil and saw they gave him the #10 smh.

Assuming Boateng stays put he and Hummels are pretty good. If Boatemg leaves than Sule could turn out to be a monster with Mats. Real has Ramos who is probably the best single center back in the world. Don't sleep on Barca. Umtiti is a rising power paired with Busquets.

The Arsenal guys may be the best in the Premier League, but maybe not in the world.

Ozil mailed it in during the Mexico game and looked disinterested at best.

Not objective but the combination of Matic & Van Dyke for Liverpool at the end of the season was impressive.
Now if they only had a keeper...............

I don't really follow EPL, but what happened to Migniolet (Sp.)?

Manager Jurgen Klopp threw him in the dog house late in the year.

A little national nepotism? That young German goalie blew it in the CL final. That being said, I like Klopp a lot. He features a speedy attacking style that's fun to watch. Too bad Bayern couldn't pry him away.
