Bennydevito here, reporting back from my virgin trip to the Emirates! I wanted to get this out earlier in the week but that pesky old thing called life kept getting in the way so kudos to Pedro for getting something out on a daily basis, I think a lot of us really do take Le-Grove for granted at times, I know I do.

SHUT UP WE HAVE NEWS.
Cazorla AND Theo have signed new deals.
That’s bloody marvellous on toast.
I know Theo probably landed a payrise. I know people probably think that’s a cheek. I don’t. I rate him. He is electric, he’s a great finisher and he adds directness to our front line. He’s also part of the furniture these days… we couldn’t bin him off. Glad he’s gonna stay with us through his prime years.
But Theo, know this, when you hit 30, it’s game over.
Santi! I love this little guy. I was expecting him to move on this summer and make way for Aaron Ramsey. It didn’t happen. I’d imagine he’ll move on next year. His legs won’t be able to continue to hack the pace at which they’re being made to work at. But he’s a great player. Exciting, smart and an incredibly hard worker!
Good news. Positive vibes flowing through the camp.
Just a shame we don’t have a bit more muscle through the middle and a real shame Karim Benzema looks like a pipe dream.
Right, I don’t have much for you today. I’ll give you a big dollop of Arsenal tomorrow.
Jose Mourinho kicking off the season in the sort of tone that a alcohol fuelled fart sets at the start of a pitch.
He basically called Rafa Benitez fat in his press conference yesterday, which is a bit rich for a guy who let himself go pretty badly last year.
