Tweaked the 3-4-2-1 to make both of the strikers 'Complete Forwards'. Doesn't sound like it would work, but we beat Mainz 5-0 with Graves scoring a hat-trick and Strkalj scoring one.

We were actually 3-0 up inside six minutes and 5-0 up before half-time but committed that most wicked of sins and lost our momentum in the second half.

Haven't decided whether to start the season proper with the 3-4-2-1 or the 4-3-3, and I have one more friendly to make my mind up. It will be goalkeeper Slogar's testimonial and it will be against Monaco who, unfathomably, are managed by Phil Neville.

An entirely scientific experiment suggests 3-4-1-2 is the way to go. Played the first half against Monaco using 4-3-3 and we went in at HT 1-0 up following a very tight 45 minutes. For the second half we switched to 3-4-1-2 and it finished 4-0.

Pre-season is now over and our Premier League campaign gets underway next week against Middlesbrough. We've been given very favourable fixtures early on and won't face our first real test in the league until a November trip to Stamford Bridge.

13 months since the World Cup quarter-final, Fritjof is back taking charge of a competitive match.


Much less convincing than I was expecting but... at least we won. Work ahead.

Fritjof's first Premier League Manager of the Month award. 100% record with Arsenal so far but with no challenging games played yet.

This is fun - unless I can massively reduce my wage bill in January I'm going to fail the PL FFP regulations. Didn't even realise that was possible until the window closed. I'm well within the wage budget the board have given me so, you know, a heads up from them would have been nice.

There are two possible sanctions: a fine or a deduction of five points! Have done some research though and it seems very unlikely that the points deduction will apply despite my flagrant breach of FFP. Just like real life.

I'd say this was our biggest test yet and we did well. We fielded a very heavily rotated side but got a League Cup win over Chelsea.

Two Manager of the Month awards from a possible two.


Also seven wins from seven in the league, nine wins from nine in all competitions, fifteen wins from fifteen if you were to include friendlies for some reason. Life at Arsenal has started well although we cannot overlook how easy our fixtures have been. The highest-placed team I've faced in the league so far are Wolves in 10th.
