It already feels like ages since we have seen Arsenal in action, even though it was less than a month ago when the Gunners enjoyed a fantastic final day with our win over Aston Villa helping Arsenal to continue the long run of finishing above Tottenham.
And while it is still a while before the Gunners will be back in action, we do have Euro 2016 to look forward to and after France hosted Romania in the opening game, there will be much more special interest in the second day of the tournament today.
First up at 2pm British time we have the chance to see our first transfer signing of the summer Granit Xhaka, who will be hopefully in fine form and running things from central midfield for the Switzerland national side. I for one will be analysing every piece of the new Gunner’s game against European minnows Albania.
And depending on selection, every match today will feature an Arsenal player to give us extra reason, if it were needed, to tune in to the latest festival of football. Aaron Ramsey and Wales take on Slovakia, dark horses who recently produced a shock win over Mesut Ozil and Germany.
Then we have the England game against Russia and possibly a chance to see how the lack of football this season has affected Jack Wilshere. So cheer up and tune in Arsenal fans, because football is back with a bang!
