WEDNESDAY’S BIG STORIES Well done, they’ve got an average age of 19 The surest sign that a social media joke has reached saturation point and becomes the absolute hackiest thing anyone could possibly do, is when official club accounts pick up on it.

Over 3 is very real if we know that one of rivals is fantastic Ajax. I will try.

And we know how that ended. If Emery struggled to connect with his own players, communication was a problem which affected his relationship with supporters too. A fanbase who had been treated to Arsene Wenger’s masterfully articulated philosophies on football, love and life over 20 years – even if they didn’t always agree with his conclusions, and were even occasionally angered by them – were suddenly being fed the most bland, empty proclamations about “process”, “moments” and “being clear that we have to work hard”.
