One last time…A home win to close the season?

Today we are playing Everton at home…An Everton side that just secured its place in the EPL this week after an emotional and tough win, followed by huge celebrations…They may play freely against us, which could lead to their best game or a game that passes them by…

On our side, we have to win and hope for Norwich to miraculously beat the Spurs…That said, yesterday’s final day in the French league was crazy with the Top 5 decided in the last 3 minutes of games and for the bottom 3 as well…@Fred – Mbappe and the Club has confirmed Mbappe has signed a new contract with PSG until 2025, he will be paid 1 Mln per week and reportedly received 110 Mln EUR sign-on fee as well as some control on his image rights and various bonuses linked to goals, assists, trophies…

Let us play with purpose, guile and flair today to finish the season on a high. Let us have a win that gives us a glimpse of nice things to come…

Ramsdale – White, Holding, Gabs – Cedric, El Neny, Xhaka, Saka – Odegaard – Nketiah, Martinelli

Not sure about status of the players in terms of suspension and injuries…

    Thanks for all your posts RC, and for keeping AA going in difficult times.

    After a year of self imposed sabbatical from blogging I spent a very pleasant hour talking to an old friend and long time contributor to AA yesterday. He told me that the battle between the half-fulls and half-emptys still polarises and divides as it always has. It’s human nature.

    Once you treat everything as an opinion (especially your own view) and accept that facts only (sometimes) exist in mathematics, life can become less stressful.
    With that in mind… this is my opinion.

    We’ve had the usual rollercoaster of a season, but ultimately it’s been great.We have a young team led by a young manager. They’ve made mistakes and they’re learning from them. Mikel has been brave in his decision making and has managed to turn around the toxic culture at the club that has blighted us since Arsene’s last few seasons.

    We are not up to the standard to compete in the CL yet, but we have played some fantastic football at times – AW would be proud.

    A big plus is the atmosphere at the ground. We can sing! We can make a lot of noise. We can lift the team.

    Have a great day to all my friends and supporters going to the game. Sing your hearts out and stay behind to clap our boys in the lap of appreciation until your hands are numb. Whether we have won and Norwich have become Real Madrid for the day – or we’ve lost 3 nil, it matters not.

    We are The Arsenal.

    North London Forever, Whatever the Weather.

    Amen Rasp! Hope to enjoy reading you more often next season 😛

    @Fred – indeed, Saliba wants to play CL footie next season. Extend him and let him go back to OM for another loan…BUT this would mean bringing in another CB – as we would need 4 CBs. At the moment, we have 3 and need another one. Why not go for a player that is experienced and wouldn’t mind discovering Europe and a club like AFC (Keane, Bednarek, Coady…)?

    Disagree if saliba is for the future then let him start playing for the first team from now and gel with his teammates

    It’s going to be a close season of many ifs and buts, maybe more than usual?

    Will Torrieira join Fiorentina, join some other club or maybe even return to Arsenal?

    Will Hector Bellerin join Betis, join some other club or possibly return to Arsenal as well?

    What lays in store for Ainsley Maitland Niles?

    Where will Leno be plying his trade by next August?

    There’s quite a few more and then of course there is our young Monsieur William Saliba esquire, I guess that if he really wants Champions League football that badly and also Olympique Marseilles want him that badly as well then simply extending his contract on the same terms by a year or two shouldn’t be a problem for him or his agent – should it?
