While you wait (or don’t wait) for Arsenal’s backroom to get their act together, you may as well devote some of your summer relaxation hours to brushing up on the betting scene, and what better source to have in your back pocket than Sportsbook Reviews, a thorough resource on the pros and cons of the best online sports books and the constantly changing sports betting landscape.

We’ll take this win with a pinch of salt as we look back on Arsenal’s promising spells throughout the 2018/19 season and give you the best, the worst, the most wankerish, the most sell-worthy, the most indispensable of a very very up-and-down first season* for Unai Emery…
