David Luiz is prone to lapses of concentration but he’s still better than any centre back we have so I welcome the signing.
Alex Iwobi is off to Everton for £40 million. An ok player but we’ve massively upgraded in Pepe I feel. Iwobi feels like a 2nd choice signing after Zaha I would think Palace smartly know they can’t afford to lose him otherwise relegation would be a huge possibility without him.

All major leagues will be won by the same teams that won them last season (Spain, Italy, Germany, France) though I do expect Real Madrid and Dortmund to at least put up a challenge.

Hearing the theme to the first Match of the Day of a new season is always a joy. Seeing Ian Wright in the studio is not.
How dare you disparage Sir Ian like that! I get he’s not everyone’s cup of tea though that’s fine.
Some big games today. Leicester v Wolves is a big one to start with with two teams with lofty aspirations for this season of at least getting 7th place.
Newcastle Arsenal might be the game of the day. 2 teams capable of completely imploding. As a Gooner I’m hoping Bruce is as bad as the fans fear (at least just for today) and our new signings get off to a great start.
Man U and Chelsea will both have a lot to prove today. United have been written off it seems before a ball is kicked and Chelsea seem weaker without Hazard and the transfer ban. Both will surely want to show their fans they have nothing to worry about.
