Poor Neymar :cry: Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. I guess Jesus isn't 100% with him after all.

I'm looking forward to next season, I really hope with Debuchy starting he proves he's good enough, rather than just playing because of his age. Bellerin did really well last season so deserves his shot if it comes again. Although i'm more than happy for Jenkinson to play since I love him like he loves Arsenal.



ISWYDT

I imagine one of Bellerin and Jenkinson will go on loan and Debuchy gets his place back.

From a lot of rumours and newspaper gossip it sounds like west ham want to sign him permanently.Sounds like a good move for him really .

David Luiz is probably in tears at the news.

Liverpools fixtures are pretty awful for the first half.

However, the second half is better.

Being anywhere near the top 4 by the half way point of the season will be very promising.

We have Arsenal, Untd, Spuds, Chelsea, City, Stoke and Everton away before the year is out. Very tough.

Oh I'm a Lolerpool fan....and Wrexham in the conference.

Rumours that Madrid want Aguero and might offload Benzema to Arsenal. If that happened it would be the third year in a row a Premier League side losing a top player made Arsenal stronger :datass:

Hold up, what are Jamaica doing in the Copa America?

EDIT: Mexico are in too. Don't worry.

It's due to it being a 12 team tournament for a confederation made up of only 10 team they invite 2 teams from another confederation to join. The 2 extra have always been from North America except for on one occasion in which Japan took part.

They're in the exact place they were before, third place and cup runs

Other teams selling one player has done nothing to actually "make Arsenal stronger", it's just stopped them declining for once

Except we always finished fourth. That was the joke!

From 9 years without a trophy and constant fourth place finishes to two FA Cups and a comfortable-ish third place finish = "the exact same place".

A few years ago we were relying on Podolski and throwing money at Walcott to stay. Now Podolski has not been missed on loan and won't be seen in an Arsenal shirt again, and we're playing hardball with Walcott on the contract situation because he's no longer the big name at the club. How those players fortunes have changed - and they're not Chamakh or Denilson level players, they're both established internationals (one's a World Cup winner!) - is irrefutable proof of the progress made.

Irene, you are talking such nonsense.

Even more ridiculous considering City have gone backwards.

I'd presume Irene is referring to the lack of improvement when it comes to the league and Europe. It's nice for Arsenal fans to have won the FA Cup back to back, but I think it's fairly obvious the club didn't splash out the money on Ozil and Sanchez to only win FA Cups.

Teams for the England U21 game at 5pm.



With Englands recent record at the tournament and Sweden coming from a goal down with ten men against Italy, I'm apprehensive about their chances to say the least.

Looking at Arsenal's 2015 form, it wouldn't be ridiculous to suggest that they're on the cusp of becoming a real force. And besides, winning a cup 2 years on the spin shouldn't be sniffed at, either.

Arsenal have made huge steps in recent seasons. People who say otherwise in my opinion dont have eyes.

If Arsenal sign Cech and someone like Benzema you'd have to say they'd be definite contenders for the title at least.
