The summer transfer window of 2017 saw plenty of money being tossed around between clubs, especially in the Premier League. But with big transfer prices come big expectations. We take a look at some of the main transfers of the Summer window and see if they managed to produce the goods for their teams this season, based on how a high school teacher might grade them.
Let’s just get this straight — we don’t know what we just saw, but we know we liked it. Arsenal cruised to a 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow in the Europa League quarterfinal first leg on Thursday thanks to an absolutely absurd Aaron Ramsey goal.
To set the stage, Ramsey had already put the Gunners ahead with a goal in the ninth minute only for Aleksandr Golovin to equalize six minutes later with a brilliant free kick. Alexandre Lacazette restored Arsenal’s advantage with a penalty kick but the Gunners weren’t done.
Howdy everybody. The international break is over. The FPL website has this week pinned as GW 32 (even though this is GW31 for most teams thanks to some FA Cup nonsense). BUT everyone needs to start prepping for the all important GW 34 where we have a lot of teams double dipping. So keep that in mind if you're saving your 'Free hit' for something special. Lets get to the 3 jerrys that can help your squad this week.
3 Players To Play
Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal):
Danny Welbeck is part of the pantheon of great English forwards who do not score goals. That’d seem to be a terrible oxymoron, but you forget that supporters love a grafter. If you had to rely on one striker to effectively man-mark a center back out of a match, it’d be Danny Welbeck.
I don’t know why you’d ever employ that tactic, but that’s the highest praise I can bestow on Welbeck.
Batten down the hatches, because I am about to unleash the takestorm to end all takestorms.
Arsenal are in trouble. This much is obvious. They just conceded six unanswered goals to Manchester City in 180 minutes of competition. Manchester City are very good, granted, but Arsenal are one of the biggest, richest clubs in Europe. Arsenal have lost more matches in all competitions (seven) than any other Premier League club in 2018.
