Well, the last few days for Arsenal fans have been an enjoyment that a lot of us did not expect and we now have grounds for optimism ahead of the new season.
The first few weeks of this transfer window have been full of negativity and in all fairness, rightfully so.
There were little signs of any significant signings, there was a statement issued by a bunch of Arsenal fan groups and websites asking the board and owners if they cared in the same way that we the fans did and whatever reported offers we were making for players were a little embarrassing.
Pundits, fans and the media were criticising the club and the prospects for next season were gloomy at best.
And add into all that our own captain going on strike.
They say a week is a long time in politics, well, it can be a lifetime in football and this week has proven that beyond doubt.
The last few days have seen the exciting and talented Dani Ceballos join the club on a year loan, a huge bid for Lille’s Nicolas Pepe accepted and reports tonight that Celtic are finally close to agreeing to sell Kieran Tierney to us.
That has strengthened three crucial areas in the team significantly and further reports are that the spending may not have stopped there.
The situation is not perfect by any means, most of our closest rivals have all strengthened or are in a better position but compared to how things were just a week ago the upcoming season all of a sudden looks a lot brighter for us.
I am not jumping the gun here or getting carried away and I am only talking about optimism and positivity and as of this moment in time I am full of both.
