Arsenal have started business in the right way this summer. After an air of worry flooded North London with regards to their transfer business before the World Cup, most Gunners fans are satiated now. After securing the signatures of Alexis Sánchez, Mathieu Debuchy, David Ospina and Calum Chambers, Arsenal have signalled their intent for next season. One rumour that fails to go away is the big name signing of German midfielder Sami Khedira.

It’s been a busy transfer window for Newcastle United. They’ve lost key players such as Mathieu Debuchy but have brought in six new signings, who fans hope will be able to rectify last season's disappointing performance by the Magpies. The signing of a number of new players could be viewed as a sign of intent from manager Alan Pardew and owner Mike Ashley, both of whose dedication to the club have come under scrutiny of late. Pardew may fear that he walks a thin line this season and must be shown to strengthening a squad which lacked depth last season.  

Here we take a look at four new signings and how they can make a difference in the Newcastle squad.

At times last season, it felt as though the infamous Chinese curse "May you live in interesting times" was written for Manchester United. Ironic it would be, as United ever increasingly look to convince China that Manchester United is made for them. Anyhow, when David Moyes took over as Manchester United manager last summer, I remember thinking that whatever happens, at least it will be interesting. And it was.

After the sale of Luis Suarez, Liverpool are spending considerable amounts of money to bolster their squad. So far, they have strengthened their defence with the signing of Dejan Lovren, their midfield with the signing of Emre Can, and their attack with the likes of Lazar Marković, Adam Lallana, and Rickie Lambert. Some have hailed these signings as vital; let's face it, Liverpool's lack of depth was one of their weaknesses last season. On the other hand, supporters might fear that Liverpool will be the Spurs of 2014/2015, the team that sells their star player, and splashes all the cash on players who might not be up for the job.

PURGENoun: 1. an abrupt or violent removal of a group of people.

One is accustomed to bowling over in the face of more aggressive opponents in this country; England’s players are relentlessly pilloried and berated for a typically absent charisma and fortitude that so many other countries thrive off to their prosperity, but we allow failure to flourish anyway. It comes as little surprise, therefore, that Southampton have greeted the merciless raid on their young English talent with little other than a helpless sneer and a shrug of the shoulders. Que sera, sera.

As England’s top clubs purge on Southampton’s most talented personnel, I can’t help but ponder whether the fear of success is an underlying reason for so many of English football’s deficiencies, and whether high league positions and strong cup runs for some of the game’s lesser powers is more hindrance than help.

I'll say this now.

I don't have a lot of time for England. I don't like international games, I don't like the endless collection of St George's flags lashed across advertising hoardings, suspended from rooftops and flown from cars every two years. Furthermore, I hate international breaks, as it means no Liverpool game for a fortnight and my weekly fix of all things Red is put on hold so we can watch a host of rookie England players obtain their only caps before the big lads return for the tournaments. 'What have we learned from this game, Alan?' 'Well, we know that the subs board works.'
