Arsenal finished last season in style and we have taken up where we left off, with four wins out of four in the pre-season games, despite the squad rotation and youth player additions. We have lots of promising youngsters and just about all the senior midfielders and strikers nicked a goal or two in our run.
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger may raid the Spanish giants Barcelona for one of their academy graduates. If he does prove successful, it certainly will not be the first time he’s poached a Barca youngster.
He has already proved to the Arsenal fans that he had a big appetite for a fight, a desire to show what he can do in the toughest league in the world and a very strong character to go with the bundles of talent that were nurtured in two of the best academy systems in the world and now Hector Bellerin has got another gold star on his report.
Maybe all those concerned with the success of Arsenal in the Premier League in the coming months will have something to worry about if the reports about this transfer deal turn out to be true and the Spanish international striker Pedro Rodriguez does join our rivals Chelsea from Barcelona this summer.
I get the fact that a lot of Arsenal fans are still not convinced by our France international centre forward Olivier Giroud and think that Thierry Henry was right to say that the Gunners could not win the Premier League with the big man leading the line.
