    I like that he keeps stressing the importance of winning something.

    Seems a common theme from the doc as well. Obviously means a lot to Levy.

    That is because that is what it is all about at the end of the day, and something we have failed to do for a long time. Lets hope this is the start of a winning era.

    I was surprised this didn’t come out earlier. We didn’t furlough anyone in the end, nor have we made anyone redundant. The loan is a security against a the unknown length of time until fans return, i.e a genuine source of income and will be repaid. There’s much bigger problems in the game than us investing what is ultimately money solely generated by ourselves and is the responsibility to pay back ourselves.

    The BoE loan isn’t free either I’m sure? Loans are a major source of income for banks, it’s not a handout!

    It’s 0.5% for one year
    It’s mega cheap money
    But other clubs couldn’t get the loan as their credit ratings wouldn’t have been high enough

    also, the arse did all of those things yet we’ve not heard a peep about that

    just puff pieces on the genius that is Arteta telling players when they are out of position, a first for a football manager

    A lot of players put on fake smiles that look so forced, but in all the clips of Bale he seems to be genuinely happy to be back.
    Doesn't mean much in how he will play etc but if he's happy to be here it will hopefully have a good impact on the dressing room and give
    the team a lift.

    I always got the impression he hated all the media side of the game too. If he’s motivated to get fit and play him and Kane are a couple of great role models for our younger players.

    I've seen a bit of Bale with Madrid, that isn't an act, that's the most I've seen him smile in years ..

    We are all human, it must be amazing to come back to somewhere you are obviously loved after that experience with Madrid ..
