RIP Avicii, four years gone today šŸ™

It's sad that Wenger held onto the role so long when his team were clearly unable to compete against the likes of City, United and Chelsea. He probably should have resigned a couple of years earlier, with his reputation still intact. Arsenal went from being "the Invincibles" to being a team full of attacking midfielders who bottled it in big games. Their performances in recent years haven't been great, but they still needed to move on and start afresh. Sadly, the game passes everyone by at some stage. Just look at Mourinho.

Take me back to April 20, 2018

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

It is Friday, April 20, 2018. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Taurus. People have "that Friday feeling" and are excited for the weekend.

The summer of 2018 is drawing closer, and temperatures have started to rise. In America, the song "God's Plan" by Drake is at the top of the singles charts, while "Nice for What" by Drake is the number-one song in the UK. Donald Trump is the President of the United States, and the movie Rampage is at the top of the box office.

Theresa May is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. It's 2018, so the music charts are being dominated by artists such as Drake, Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello, Post Malone, Cardi B, Juice Wrld and Dua Lipa. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as TotalBiscuit, Kate Spade, Anthony Bourdain, and XXXTentacion would all still be alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "RuPaul's Drag Race", "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", "Better Call Saul", and "Ex on the Beach". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Call of Duty: WWII", "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG)", "Far Cry 5", and "God of War". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Peppa Pig", "Horrid Henry", "Adventure Time", and "The Loud House".

Popular toys at the moment include Hello Barbie, LEGO Star Wars: Millennium Falcon, Hot Wheels Ultimate Garage, and FurReal Roarin' Tyler.
