I'm afraid that Leeds became a vile club and are still very much linked to racism.

It would have been nice to see Brentford make their premier league debut, hope they make it up through the playoffs.

Oh..that is a shame, if it's true. Haven't heard anything about that. Perhaps those people will shy away from the bright lights, and the cameras of the PL.

Hoping for Brentford aswell. Nice danish group. Nørgaard, Jensen, Dalsgaard, Marcondes, Roerslev and Frank as the manager. But they choked twice when West Brom **** up. I doubt them in the playoff, Fulham is my guess.

If Brentford aren't promoted I'd like to poach Benrahma from them. Same with Eze from QPR.

So league starts up again sept 12th! Everyone get their rest!

I suppose they got a few months off there...and so even with this crunched up last 7-8 games, guys should be good. Teams still in CL and stuff will have some issues.

Remember....that's game 1 of the league. So your gonna have to get a couple practice games in there...your training camp, and all the rest. Teams bringing in new players will have alot of work to do. And if your playing another week or so in Euro matches, you have about 5 weeks before the season STARTS.

I think teams with greater depth, and who are willing to use them, will win the title. Teams too reliant on 12-14 players to shoulder all the load will be burned out come Jan.

Although it was a rough season for the Gunners, winning the FA Cup and playing in the Europa League next season is an ok consolation prize.

Better than Arsenal fans could have hoped for or deserved. It seems the post lockdown - no supporter - games really benefited the clubs with large depth squads. Leicester, Sheff U and wolves all dropping away whilst Manu, Arsenal and Spurs advanced.

From a Leicester pov I'd hoped that Arsenal wouldn't win the Cup as that would have made recruitment much more difficult. If they hang onto Aubameyang now they have a great chance of success next season.

Arsenal fans must also like the fact that their qualification means Spurs have to play in the qualifying rounds now.

If we strengthen the squad in the right places for once, I'll have faith in a far better season 20/21.
Winning the FA Cup is just a confirmation we're going in the right direction.

Crucial is keeping Aubameyang. What a player/captain he has been.

Yeah....grats to the gunners. Been an awful season for them. One of my buds is a big Arse fan, so I keep up with them, and kinda see them as "plan B" should Liverpool be out of it. It's been a painful season of real up and downs. Great to see them win the FA. It's something....it's HOPE. It shows that they are a good squad. Should give them belief. A spot in Europe is big.
