Is it that time of year already? It only seems like yesterday that Manchester United pipped Arsenal to the post again to claim the Premiership title, but tomorrow the Gunners get another crack at the toughest championship in the world, kicking off the new season with a home match against Everton. The good news ahead of the game is of course that French pair Patrick Viera and Robert Pires have both extended their contracts at Highbury.
Elsewhere, champions Manchester United start their title defence with a home tie against Bolton, who will be hoping for a more comfortable Premiership survival than last season's 17th position.
Title contenders Liverpool and Chelsea battle it out on Sunday in Sky Sports' first televised game of the season. The world will be watching to see just what Roman Abramovich's millions have bought, and more importantly, what they can do together on a football pitch.
The first kick of the new season will take place at St Andrews, where Birmingham City play host to Arsenal's North London rivals Tottenham.
Be sure to bookmark this section as 2atoms will be covering both Arsenal's Premiership campaign and the wider world of football in more detail than ever!

As speculated the other day, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the signing of goalkeeper Jens Lehmann will his only spend of the summer. This means that just £1.5 million has flowed out of Highbury's coffers in stark contrast the many millions spent at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge. The Gunners have had to tighten their belts while their new stadium is built in nearby Ashburton Grove, the opening of which is now delayed until at least 2006. Ladbrokes, Britain's biggest bookmakers have today reduced their odds on Arsenal winning the Premiership to 2/1 against Manchester United's 11/10.
German international, ex-Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper, Jens Lehmann has signed for Arsenal Football Club. He fills the vacuum left by David Seaman's departure from Highbury over 7 weeks ago. Wenger is quoted on the official Arsenal website as saying " I am pleased because he is used to playing under big pressure, he is intelligent and we got him at the right price. "
With little time left before the start of the new season, Arsenal fans have had an unusually uneventful summer. Lehmann is expected to be the only close season signing, barring any last minute bargains or injury replacements.
David Beckham goes shopping, and sees something interesting in the kitchen department of a large department store. "What's that?" he asks. "A Thermos flask," replies the assistant. "What does it do?" asks Becks. The assistant tells him it keeps hot things hot and cold things cold. Really impressed, Beckham buys one and takes it along to his next training session.
"Here, boys, look at this," Beckham says proudly. "It's a Thermos flask." The lads are impressed. "What does it do?" they ask. "It keeps hot things hot and cold things cold, "says David. "And what have you got in it?" asks Roy Keane. "Two cups of coffee and a Choc ice," replies Beckham.
Another legend has left the marble halls of Highbury, this time keeper David Seaman. The Pringles-logo-resembling goalie signed a 1 year contract with Manchester City, ensuring he will have at least 1 more season of top flight football - as Peter Schmeichel's replacement.
Arsene Wenger had told Seaman that he would no longer be first choice goalkeeper at Arsenal, but still offered the chance of a contract extension and a chance to move onto a coaching position. Understandably, David still believes he is fit enough for regular Premiership football and after what must have been an agonising time of consideration, decided to decline Wenger's offer.
Good luck and all the best Dave - you will be sorely missed and fondly remembered ;)
