Morning people and welcome to Monday. It’s a 3 day week within the UK due to the Queen’s jubilee, which suggests desk jockey’s like me get to get pleasure from an prolonged weekend, which is every kind of groovy. What can be every kind of groovy, was seeing that three referees on the prime of our recreation are retiring now that the season is over. Mike Dean, Martin Atkinson and John Moss, with Moss the man who demonstrated yesterday within the Forest v Huddersfield play-off remaining that he’s now not match for objective by not giving Huddersfield which regarded to me like a transparent penalty yesterday. Jon Moss is kind of LITERTALLY not match to referee, as his mobility is a matter in addition to his common performances. I cannot miss any of these referees, however Moss and Dean I’m significantly glad to see the again of.

What I’d like to see now is a bit more variety by way of Premier League referees, each by way of race and gender, but additionally by way of the place they’re based mostly too. You possibly can’t persuade me that there aren’t any good referees which are wherever within the South East of the nation. We’ve one referee south of Oxfordshire in Simon Hooper, however that’s it. It’s a transparent indication of the best way through which the PGMOL is about up i.e. an outdated boys club the place Mike Riley takes care of his mates and they’re accountable to no one. My hope is that by these three from the outdated boys community leaving, it should give the chance to herald some higher blood than we’ve had. However while Mike Riley stays in cost everyone knows that the prospect is fleeting that it’ll occur.

So we should prepared ourselves as soon as once more for shoddy VAR choices and referees ruining video games with baffling choices subsequent season.

What we should additionally prepared ourselves for is that we are going to be seeing Nottingham Forest within the Premier League and I for one am glad. I’ve no specific affinity to them, however as a previously large club with European Cups to their title, it’ll make for a pleasant story to see them again within the Prem. I even have a hope that we will kick the hoodoo we’ve endured for the final two visits there within the FA Cup. We’ve misplaced twice there and this season additionally they knocked us out. We have been stunning and Arteta rotated, however I used to be within the floor that day and it was a irritating recreation that had me fairly irked with the efficiency. So what I wish to see for subsequent season is for us to go there, hopefully win, then put the unhealthy cup type to mattress. If I can get tickets I would go to that recreation too, as a result of it was an honest journey up there after I went in January with Dave.

So I’m 500 phrases in and I haven’t even actually talked about The Arsenal. Gradual information day, or what, eh?

I assume I may speak about how we’re all keen a Serge Gnabry transfer in to being, when the fact might be fairly completely different. He’s probably the most gifted ahead gamers in Europe, Bayern are keen to promote as a result of he gained’t signal a deal and apparently with one 12 months left, they’re on the lookout for €40million. It’s a really inexpensive worth and is completely a great transfer if Arsenal could make it occur, nevertheless it seems the only people who find themselves making an attempt their greatest to persuade him from an Arsenal perspective are us followers on social media. At that worth he’ll be wished by most of Europe and while I’m in little doubt that he has a tender spot for the Arsenal having made his debut with us and performed as an Arsenal teenager for 5 years from 2011 to 2016, the fact is that he can have golf equipment like Madrid, most likely Liverpool if Mane goes (additionally with one 12 months on his deal), in addition to a number of others who would put their hat within the ring to signal him. So while it might be a stunning concept to signal him, I doubt Arsenal shall be it. Not least as a result of his favoured place is that proper hand aspect and we have already got Saka. I do know he can function throughout the entrance line and with extra video games we’re going to want to rotate, however spunking a giant a part of our funds on a place through which we have already got a couple of gamers who can fill it, feels a bit of like once we all wished Cesc again once we already had Ozil. Individuals will – with the good thing about hindsight – clearly level out that the transfer not to herald Cesc was additionally a mistake, however on the time Ozil was on the peak of his powers and so we didn’t want a like-for-like participant. Possibly if we offload Pepe this summer season and we’re wanting on the two huge positions being occupied by Martinelli, Saka, Smith Rowe and Gnabry you would say that it’s potential, however I doubt we’d even be dropping £50 – £60million on a striker, then one other £30million on a central midfielder, herald a deputy proper again too, would we? It simply doesn’t really feel like we’ll go for all of that after which additionally go for someone like Gnabry by way of the place we’re at proper now. He feels just like the kind of signing we’d make if we have been already a step nearer to our objectives than we’re proper now. He feels just like the cherry on the cake footballer that makes us even higher than the place we’re, type of like Liverpool have performed with Diaz, or City have performed with Haaland. However I’m simply not satisfied we’re capable of go there simply but.

You by no means know although. Stranger issues have occurred.

And with that I believe i’ll cease for right this moment. You may have a great one and luxuriate in your Monday, no matter you’re doing. Catch you all tomorrow.
