Mesut Özil has been an amazing addition to Arsenal.
I did not think Arsene Wenger (or the club for that matter) could still be creative enough to sign a player of his gifts. Being top of the Premiership starting week three was something I could imagine. But it would have been described as a fluke.
The actual results have not been a fluke.
Neither in the Premiership nor in the Champions League.
I am looking forward to this years Premiership more than I have in years.

Curtis on MI5 reality:
After the first world war MI5 declined in importance. But with the growing fears of communism in the 1920s and 30s a new threat emerged - not just communist agents from abroad, but British communists who might betray their own country.In many cases they came from the same upper classes as those running the secret services. And a strange dance began - of toffs suspecting toffs.
"Bugger All!" is more like it.
Would anyone be surprised if the name Hoover shows up in further investigation?

At the apartment of Jean-Paul Sartre.” Gregory famously replied, “Well, you made the right choice, kiddo.”I'm doing this whole life thing wrong.
