Victoria Concordia Crescit

This post isn’t by one but 3 diehard gooners I know, yours sincerely included. Do read on. Well worth it. @drasaq01: I have never written a post-title winning piece. Today, that has changed.

Hull City Preview|Sagna out|Stoning The Transfer Window

Good morning. Midweek games are up with the fun games really being played today after being treated to some prehistoric, gladiatorial, boring footie yesterday.(It is a mark of the match level when Maroune scores the only goal; actually when Maroune scores at all).Enough with that, on to the Arsenal.

We seen it all in the decade and more since we signed our allegiance over to the Arsenal. It is a trip with bumps, fun and dull moments; […]
