Arsenal have spoken to all their players after Alexandre Lacazette, David Luiz, Nicolas Pepe and Granit Xhaka were pictured breaking social distancing guidelines.

Lacazette was too close to someone valeting his car, while Luiz and Xhaka were having a kickabout in a park.

Pepe was seen playing football with some friends.

The quartet, along with the rest of the Gunners squad, have been reminded of their responsibilities.

UK government guidelines say you can only exercise on your own or with people you live with. Also, if you have to go outside, you should stay more than 2m (6ft) apart from anyone other than members of your own household.

Earlier this week, Tottenham's Serge Aurier and Moussa Sissoko apologised for training together despite the coronavirus restrictions.

Spurs also did not adhere to guidelines when manager Jose Mourinho was pictured holding a one-on-one training session in a park with midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, while defenders Ryan Sessegnon and Davinson Sanchez were filmed running side-by-side.

Pretty solid collection. Does not include some from 2006-10, however.

Has the squad started practicing? Are all the players ok? Any photos? No news in media.

Chips Keswick has retired.

The board is now made up of the Kroenkes with Lord Harris and Ken Friar.

No it looks like they're slimlining the board.

No point having a large board when there's a single owner anyway. All he needs is a few trusted advisers.

These are the 14 players we have signed since Wenger left. My comments next to each. Positive reactions in bold. Tell me which ones you disagree with.


Torreira - mediocre and desperate to leave
Leno - good enough
Sokratis - mediocre, mid table level
Guendozi - past the hype, heading to mediocrity
Suarez - waste of time and money
Lichtensteiner - past it and useless
Pepe - very underwhelming
Saliba - tbd
Tierney - useless crock
Luiz - way past it
Martinelli - diamond in the rough
Mari - tbd
Soares - waste of time and money
Ceballos - waste of time and money

Chelsea about to seal the deals for Werner and Ziyech, while we haggle over loan deals and bring worthless players in.

Why are we so awful in transfers?

So players were hit with Corona before the city game.

Does someone have to die before this farcical season is cancelled?

Massively mismanaged now. Top to bottom.
Seems like bunch of novices in control. Terrible recruitments, inept medical staff, undisciplined players, inexperienced manager( though willing to give him few more months). Seems like a well paid luxury retreat now. Raul and Vino's has no clue or don't even care. Same with the owners. No responsibility no accountability. Every one Just enjoying a generous handout at the expense of suffering fans.

The root of all our trouble is the midfield. Whereas ManCity has cornered most of top midfielders, who are available that we can go after? English midfielders: Madison, Brooks; David Silva, end of contract at MC; Rabiot(??), Any others from Spain or South America? Feance? Elsewhere?
We badly need at least two good ones; otherwise doomed next season.
