Backing Arsenal does not always need to be an uncomfortable experience.

The mini-tour to the USA is over with and with just three more pre-season games to go we are not that far away from the first Premier League game away at Newcastle United on the 11th August.

While there will still be some new signings and departures, both Arsenal and Newcastle will be more or less the same teams that finished last season.

However, some changes are more significant than others and Rafael Benitez leaving St James Park is as significant as it gets and that must surely hand a huge advantage to Arsenal.

Arsenal are the favourites for the win and using betting sites search algorithm I know exactly where to get the best prices on an away win for Unai Emery’s men.

The Gunners are best-priced evens and I cannot see that changing much regardless of how many more signings are made, and even with the poor away record of Arsenal that still represents good value.

Betting and football are intricately linked these days and with so much information available now online there is every chance that the bookies can be beaten, in fact, a guide about football betting is freely available and is an invaluable help in that quest to beat the bookies.

There is no better enjoyment than seeing your team win and being able to profit from that makes that experience all the more enjoyable.

There are going to be loads of opportunities next season, especially backing Arsenal at home against the big teams, that will make the season far more entertaining.

And that is the trick to betting profitably on your favourite team, choosing the right moment and not betting blindly just because you support that particular side.

By being selective, backing Arsenal does not always need to be an uncomfortable experience.

    Newcastle signed joe linton from Hoffenheim for £40 Mil..

    They actually paid money for him!

    We will struggle if we stay as we are..

    1. gotanidea says:

      No worries, I believe Tierney and one winger are coming

    2. Uthgunner says:

      Welcome Ceballos and Saliba.

      Everton Ozil Aubameyang
      Ceballos Torreira
      Tierney Kimpembe Holding Bellerin

      1. Jo Gunz says:


        Zaha Lacazette Everton

        Ceballos Torreira

        Tierney Holding Bielik Bellerin


        Subs: Martinez, Alves, Martinelli, Nketsiah, Sokratis, Willock, Guendozhi

        1. Jo Gunz says:

          Dani Alves is 36 now but is better than all our defenders and can do a better job for us for one year

  2. gotanidea says:

    Newcastle lost Rafa Benitez, Ayoze Perez and Joselu, so they should be an easy opponent if Arsenal have the capacity to be a title contender in this season

    I’m just worried about Joelinton. We don’t have dominant CB that can handle his prowess in the air and Mavropanos is still too green to handle a strong target man like him

    I just wish Emery dares to replace Ozil and Mkhitaryan with Willock and Iwobi/ Nelson/ Saka in Newcastle. Both senior players don’t have the capabilities to play as half-wingers, let alone specialist wingers

    1. Sue says:

      They have a new manager to impress & we are away… those away demons are still haunting me from last season

      1. will says:

        The mood on Tyneside is less than optimistic at the mo, I doubt they are looking forward to playing us. The reaction to Steve Bruce has been very negative and I am expecting there to be quite a poisonous atmosphere at St James’ should Ashley not have sold before the season opener.

        They have lost Rafa, Rondon, Joselu, Perez, Diame and could still lose Longstaff and Shar. I think we will be OK

        1. Sue says:

          They (geordies) are planning to boycott our game. I hope you’re right, I’d love to share your optimism, but I’ll be on tenterhooks probably throughout ?

          1. Will says:

            I live in Newcastle and work with a bunch of geordies, trust me they are not looking forward to playing us first game of the season under Bruce haha

    2. Eddie Hoyte says:

      Not supporting Ozil and Mhiki, they’ve had their chances but if you really think we’ll tear it up with those three kids behind our striker then I don’t know what to call you.
      I’m up for playing our youngsters but we need established wingers to do the job upfront while we bring in the young kids slowly.
      At the back? I don’t mind throwing in the kids immediately because our defense is even worse than I can explain

    3. kev says:

      Joelinton,Nelson’s former teammate is not your typical CF.Following them last season I thought Hoffenheim were rather using a ‘false 9’ system.He’s very good with the ball at his feet but not the kind of player that will give CB’s trouble in physical battles or in the air.Different kind of striker

  3. Dan the cannon says:

    Ok so I’m gonna put it out there what about try signing James Tarkowski from Burnley.

  4. My appologies to Mr Wenger for saying that he was greedy. In fact the problem was Kronkoe.
    How come the almighty Arsenal came this low !!!

  5. Lenohappy says:

    Am sure we will get tierny because kev already said it a done deal and if we can get the ceballos boy then that’s central midfield settle all we need more is a winger and one Cb.

    1. kev says:

      No Tierney isn’t a ‘done deal’.I apologised weeks back for the use of wrong wording.There is an agreement in place like there was with Saliba so he I expect the move to soon go through

  6. Sean Williams says:

    Satan Kroenke will be happy. It seems Ceballos holds a strong General Franco right wing ideology. Definitely at odds with our fairminded and amazing supporters. Lets hope he integrates with our team.

  7. Joe Jackson says:

    Ceballos should play as our B2B next to Torreira. Surely, we can’t afford another season seeing Xhaka. I think a midfield trio of Torreira, Ceballos,and Willock can do the job. I also believe a winger is a priority because Iwobi who is our only recognized winger is average at best. As for Ozil and Micki, I think their place is on the bench.

  8. Innit says:

    Not Keen on Ozil, Iwobi, Mkhitaryan. Not sure about Reiss Nelson, Smith Rowe, Wilock, Saka, Martinelli. Too inexperienced in the Premier League at the highest level

    Only way to sort the midfield out is to SIGN:
    1. Ceballos
    2. Fekir
    3. Ziyech or Zaha
    4. Ryan Fraser


    Promote or loan
    Reiss Nelson
    Smith Rowe

    1. Joe Jackson says:

      Fekir? He is Real Betis level man
