More importantly, YAY!!! 100 days without football is 97 days too many. Can't hardly wait for next Wednesday and clinching the league!

I didn't even recognize my Fantasy Premier League team any more when I loaded the site this morning. This isn't a bad thing. They're terrible!

Games will have five substitutions and water breaks.

You live by the David Luiz, you die by the David Luiz. This was true when he was at Chelsea but has become massively more so with the Gooners.

Yet to see any evidence of teams "living" by the David Luiz.

The world's most expensive defender, but not in the way your team was hoping...

I saw a tweet that Luis got a red card once every 160 EPL games with Chelsea and once every 13 EPL games with Arsenal. And gave away a penalty once every 53 games for Chelsea but once every 6.5 games for Arsenal. So whatever he was with Chelsea is like 10-15x worse with Arsenal.
