As the new season approaches, I’m joined by Oliver Wilson to hand out grades for last season and also look at how they’ve improved their squads in this insane transfer market that has gone totally balls up nuts! Who is Grade A material and who is failing miserably?

You can find Oliver @O_J_Wilson. Follow me @soccerdiva. Also this coming season, I’m joining the Gooner Girls Ramble podcast for some Arsenal chat…and much more! Check out www.thegoonerramble.com for deets!

Jose Mourinho talks Arsene Wenger, transfers and Premier League rivalry. It’s too quick to put the kettle on, so just have a shot of your favourite beverage instead! Football, soccer, call it what you want, it’s just like being down the pub with your mates.

Don’t forget to check out @goonerramble and the Gooner Ramble Girls podcast. Women talking all things Gunners. Doesn’t get much better than that…does it?!

The North London Derby is always an epic event on the Premier League calendar. We chat it out, we break it down and slice it right up on The Gooner Ramble. From Alexis Sanchez to Harry Kane, tactics, team spirit and predictions, enjoy the honest dialogue. Thanks to @10akhil and @invertdwhinger for the invite and superb conversation. Follow @goonerramble for more.

Had an absolute blast chatting with the lads on A Bergkamp Wonderland. We got stuck into the good, the bad and the ugly. Should Wenger stay or go? Is Stan Kroenke the right owner for Arsenal? Why do the Gunners collapse mentally when they concede a goal? What is the best midfield option? What’s happened to Mesut Ozil? And should the club keep Mesut Ozil? Tune in and have a listen. You’ll need some type of beverage and snack. It’s a magical 2 hours of pure football heaven. You can follow the boys here @jasondavies71 @PR_WhoRu GeoffArsenal The_GFP!

The Premier League goes Friday Night Lights on everyone! We love it and think fans we love it too. We also chat all things Pep and look at whether or not Pep is getting used to the league or does the league need to get used to Pep’s genius? Should Man Utd panic? Have Spurs bitten off more than they can choose playing at Wembley? Get stuck in. Join the conversation.

nostradamus5-206x300 The return of the greatest game in the world is upon us. The hope. The dreams. The anticipation. The love. The hate. The rivalry. The passion. The despair. The elation. The sweet smell of victory. The bitter taste of defeat. Football is back. How did we make it through the summer?

With every new season come changes. New managers. New players. New tactics. New style. New kits. New boots. New everything. But the one thing that remains the same is what every team is fighting for. To be crowned champions. To win trophies. To be the best of the best.

We dive into a pool of football happenings In A Conversation With Eoin O’Callaghan.

The former host of Fox Soccer Report discusses attacking, defending, buying and selling in the Premier League. We look at the exciting debut of Eden Hazard for Chelsea and how Sir Alex Ferguson might regret not signing him for Manchester United. Does Nuri Sahin fit best with Liverpool or Arsenal? Is Andre Villas Boas changing too much too soon at Spurs? Can Everton burst into the top tier of the league like Newcastle United did last season? We dissect all of this and much more from an English football perspective.

What does your crystal football say about the forthcoming Premier League season? Who do you see standing at the peak of the mountain? Who will be raising something heavy, silver and shiny above their head?

Will Manchester City do it all again? Or will their arch nemesis Manchester United reclaim their crown as Kings of England? Can Arsenal really challenge for top spot? Will Chelsea and their new crop of stars take the league by storm? Can Andre Villas Boas and Tottenham Hotspur surprise everyone by winning it all? Do Newcastle United have any hope of repeating their wonderful form from last season? And will Brendan Rodgers tiki-taka revolution at Liverpool be tikitastic?

A Conversation With Derek Rae is pure football poetry. One of football’s finest voices, Derek always paints a beautiful picture through his commentary. Do you know anyone who can marry the famous poet Robert Burns with football?

From Team GB and the Olympics to all things Premier League including Luis Suarez, John Terry, Robin van Persie, Andre Villas Boas, Brendan Rodgers, Manchester City, mid-level clubs and beyond, Derek discusses it all with an honest perspective. There’s even time to talk a wee bit of Rangers!

Football, soccer, call it what you want, it’s just like being down the pub with your mates.

There’s no doubt Brendan Rodgers will be under intense scrutiny and pressure when the new season starts. Taking over the managerial reigns at Liverpool and following in the footsteps of legend Kenny Dalglish will definitely be a tough task for the ex-Swansea coach.

However, if there is one man who easily wins the gold medal for “Manager Under the Most Pressure” it has to be Andre Villas Boas. Will we see the man who dazzled the football universe at Porto? Or will we see the AVB who failed miserably at Chelsea? As mentioned earlier this month on this site, I don’t believe lightning will strike twice for Villas Boas, who lived in the shadow of the Special One during his time at Stamford Bridge.

  • Two Thoughts of the Day

    The summer transfer window is like waiting for Christmas. You have an entire list of things you want, you hope you get them all and in the end, even if just a few things on your list make it under the tree, you're fine with that!

    I fancy Arsenal to win the Community Shield against Chelsea in a few weeks. #factsonly
