I know Arsenal has been a bit of a joke, but they are really making massive strides. And they are doing it in a very process oriented manner, not just going for a bi bang approach. Over the least 2-3 years, the squad has been cleaned up. They have a formidable core of young players, and with good quality additions for depth as well now.

I can bet a good amount on them qualifying for CL this season, and even finish in top 3 consistently for next 2-3 seasons.

Interesting how Barcelona and Arsenal were after Raphinha of Leeds, but suddenly Chelsea came in and stole the guy. They also gonna sign Sterling. Ziyech goes to Milan probably (on loan at first) so they replace Lukaku and Zieych with Raphinha and Sterling. No number nines for Tuchel anymore.

edit. Apparently Spurs was there too, in talks with Leeds but Raphinha ended up rejecting them.

This is a million times better than having to load 5+ Romano tweets on one post. Thank you.

Yeah now that Barcelona sold part of their TV rights for immediate cash injection, they are free to spend again.

Barca sold some of their TV rights so they could 'buy' free players. Sad shit, really

I don't get how Barca sold 10% of their TV rights. Are TV rights sold individually as in each club can sell their own in Spain? I was under the impression that La Liga sells the the Tv right as a package for the whole league and then distribute the money accordingly similar to how Italy is. If someone could explain this I'd grateful.
