The Champions League is back tonight and we have PSG first up. To be perfectly honest I am feeling rather confident. PSG in previous years have, already this short way into the season, established themselves with a lead at the top of the table. This season however they have struggled to get going. Is it simply down to the loss of Zlatan? No, but I think it is more than they realise.
Arsenal enter the new Premier League season in the midst of an injury crisis ahead of their opener against Liverpool.
It’s a common theme with Arsene Wenger’s teams: health issues always seem to strike, whether it's at the start of the campaign or in the heat of battle for the top-flight crown.
With Leicester winning the league last year, it showed that maybe money isn’t anything, but that hasn’t stopped teams like United spending big. They have already secured the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and now they are looking to spend close to £100 on Pogba. That is silly money! But saying that! I wouldn't say no if we spent that plus I could really use a good signing for my Fantasy Team.
Guardiola, Klopp, Wenger, Conte, Mourinho, Pochettino, Ranieri, it is going to be a very interesting season indeed. Who could ever argue that this is not the best league in the world. As a betting man I will be checking all the online sportsbooks sites to see what odds I can get. Arsenal's odds will increase with the signing of that one pivotal player who could put us in the drivers seat. A striker? I think yes a striker would be the position I am most after.
One thing is for sure. This season is going to be one to remember, I only pray to the football gods above that it swings Arsenal's way.
Come on you Gunners!

We are fortunate to witness the era of amazing footballers like Ronaldo and Messi. Born with god given abilities and talent, both are absolutely amazing. Both have different identities where individualism and ego are traits of Ronaldo while togetherness and sportsmanship define Lionel Messi. Ronaldo makes solo runs on the wings and Messi brings team mates into play. With different qualities and traits, both players have been helping their teams to gain success with resolute passion and dogged determination. But the million dollar question is who is the best?

Arsenal earned a hard-fought victory against arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening to progress to the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.
Arsenal fans are a lucky bunch, our footballing obsession is liberally sprinkled with triumphs and iconic victories. From the golden age of Herbert Chapman, the great ‘50s Arsenal teams, the cuptastic 1970s, the George Graham era and the stellar successes of Arsene Wenger’s double winners, unbeatables, and latterly, FA Cup kings.
It is a statement that rings true throughout sport. Winning a prestigious prize is one thing, defending it is quite another.
That is very much the case in football circles, with competition across the board ensuring that success can never be guaranteed.
In a global and continental sense, no nation has toasted successive World Cup triumphs since Brazil in 1958 and 1962, while the Champions League era in Europe is yet to deliver back-to-back winners.
Narrowing the focus to England, and some six years have passed since Manchester United made it three Premier League title victories in a row – with current holders Manchester City offering a meek defence of their crown in 2014/15.
