Every week I’ll be bringing you Arsenal Tweets of the Week. This is a roundup from a small selection of Arsenal-related tweets chosen by me.
The World Cup is finally over. I don’t mean in the “Thank God for that” mentality, more in the “What the hell can I watch on TV now?” kinda way. It’s good to see three World Cup winners in the Arsenal First XI; and even better to see that Özil seems to have remembered what playing football is all about. I hope he’s able to bring that spark to Arsenal in the forthcoming season.

Love him or hate him, fellow Arsenal fan Piers Morgan certainly loves a good bet. Usually it’s Arsenal-related and the winning money always goes to charity. This time it’s a whopping £10k!

Following hot on the heels of the Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal FC made an official announcement that Mathieu Debuchy has been signed as a replacement for Bacary Sagna. For those of you who followed the World Cup, you’ll know that Debuchy played all of France’s matches as they reached the quarter-finals, with the exception of the final group game against Ecuador in which Bacary Sagna played in his place. Oh, the ironies of life …

For those of us lucky enough to be travelling to the States next week to see Arsenal playing in Thierry Henry’s Exhibition match against the New York Red Bulls, here are a couple of extra treats in store for us. Who fancies meeting up?

And finally …
Usually at this stage of the transfer we’re all jumping up and down wondering if and when Wenger will open his wallet and let the moths fly. For some unusual reason he’s not keeping us in suspense this year so I can sympathise with this fellow Arsenal fan. At the same time it did take Wenger nearly two months after the opening of the summer transfer window to make the first signing. So, if you happen to read this Arsene, you still have nearly six weeks left which means there’s still plenty of time to strengthen the team. No more fourth place for us again in 2014/15 – we (the fans) only want first!
I’m very uncomfortable with how competent Arsenal have been with transfers this summer. It’s unnatural and I just don’t like it.
