Third win on tour as City are beaten....
Too much can often be made of pre season friendlies but as Manchester United look forward to playing Real Madrid and then Barcelona over the next few days, they can reflect on three games played and three victories over LA Galaxy (5-2), Real Salt Lake (2-1) and Manchester City (2-0) on the North American part of the 2017 tour. After the games against the Spanish giants the tour returns to Europe before the Super Cup match against Real Madrid on 8th August.
Betfred Cup - Airdrie 3 - 1 Stranraer
Speaking to people around about me tonight at the Airdrie Vs. Stranraer match it seems that most of us are in a concensus that we are going to have to take one match at a time this season, enjoy the wins when we get them, accept the draws and suffer the loses in good grace and then move on to the next match.

Loan Arranger Arsenal Loanees Full Progress Report
Every year a number of players make temporary exits, many of which lead to permanent exits. Some are playing for their careers, Arsenal or otherwise, while others are simply youngsters getting their first taste of senior football, and others are just biding time until they can get a work permit.

10 Burnley Cult Heroes
Put six fans of any club in any room and ask them to define what makes a cult hero, and I’m pretty sure you’d get six different answers. Hero, legend, cult hero, they can all be so different; yet just sometimes a player can be all three. Maybe the great Jimmy McIlroy now in his eighties and the Club President at Burnley Football Club, is one of the latter.

The Day The Earth Stood Still at SHL
So its the that exciting time of year when we all wait with bated breath to hear who Arsene has signed, and the list of who he hasn't signed grows longer. Its hard to find anything worth writing about at this stage, so lets have a golden oldie from the good old days when Arsenal were a real contender for the league, or perhaps not as its an award winning article from October 2005. (Actually I am not missing the season at all, its a relief not to have to watch the same old same old of Inspector Clouseau once again messing up an attempt to win the league.)
