    I am. If you didnít play last year, here is the code to join: grz3mw

    Itís going to be a tight race for first between Man City and Liverpool. Spurs should place third on the table. Who will round out the top six?

    Would the sale of Eriksen drop Spurs at all for you?

    I think City and Liverpool are comfortably ahead of the rest of the field. Spurs/Arsenal the next step down. Chelsea/United after that.

    Anyone else have a shot of cracking the top 6? Everton? Wolves?

    Wow. Wasnít aware of the Eriksen situation. He would be a very good player for Man U. Is that enough for them to drop spurs out of third place? Perhaps if they get in the same injury situation they did last year. But if they can stay healthy, probably not. He was kind of playing out of position there anyway.

    Gunners are going to be a lot of fun to watch this season. Not sure how many clean sheets they will record however!

    Agree. Good to start off 2 to 0 in league play. Lacazette and Auba with the goals today. 65/35 possession advantage. I sense a 5 position at close of league play (again), but perhaps we will surprise.

    Jose Mourinho in for the Spurs. North London just got a lot moodier.

    Firing Poch is an interesting decision. Spurs have been in a rut for a while, but they were not going to hire a better manager than him. And they probably didn't. At least based on Mourinho's recent work.

    Don't make me dig up my old avatar.

    I figured Jo-say would reappear somewhere. Just not in the Premier League.
    Man, if your Mom made you wear that color when you were a baby, and you're still wearing it, it's time to grow up!

    As an Arsenal fan, I look forward to the eventual dumpster fire that will emerge after this hire. I mean both figuratively and literally knowing that neighbor...I kid, I kid...at least about the literal part. The neighbor is better now. I'm relieved that the rumors linking him to Arsenal did not pan out.

    From a business stand point Spurs are in a pickle. Arsenal went through the same problem after the Emirates opened and salaries and transfer fees were a lot less. Spurs have to have continued success (Champions League mainly) to afford the new stadium but this seems like a panic move.

    As a fellow Gooner, I am very disheartened this year. I wonder how long Unai lasts (a firing can't be too soon for me)

    I'm disappointed too. For so long, the defense was the one pillar we could count on but it's collapsed this last decade. Pity because the offense could be potent this year.

    Even if we replace Unai, it would not fix the problems in management or the Academy. Let's be honest, Arsenal is fifth or six in importance on Stan Kroenke's sports team stable. He's got bigger problems with the LA stadium project. Plus his got his real businesses. That leaves Arsenal rudderless.

    Couldn't be happier. Need a big club manager. Gunners should be competing for the PL title every year, not trying for the top 6 for Europa entry. And certainly not losing or drawing with the bottom level clubs.

    Now to have Kroenke open some purse strings...

    PS. I saw that a legend is assuming the role - Freddy Ljungberg. I worry about legends assuming roles...i.e., Chris Mullin here at St. John's...

    Matt Doherty at UNC . . . .

    (Okay, far from a legend. Just wanted to say it though)
