Southgate needs Saka on the bench tonight

Well, as an Arsenal and England fan, Friday evening can only be described as frustrating in the extreme.

Saka’s Flexibility must make Gareth Southgate take notice for the Euros

Farewell Andrei, welcome home Cesc, and the statistical truth on press transfer rumours

Anti Social-Media Behaviour Aww! That was nice. I’ve had a fine relaxing break.  A nice wee trip abroad.  I should be back now, all rested and relaxed; NOT A BIT OF IT! Just my luck, I chose to go to Istanbul, of all weekends, I chose the one when the majority of the city decided to protest […]
