As Arsenal fans gear up for the first Champions League match of the new season, and one which could prove to be decisive about which club finishes on top of group A, we are all hoping that this season sees the Gunners make a proper fist of it rather than going out in the first knockout phase.
Arsene looks so out-of date in the modern game… by KM
Hello fellow Gooners. Straight to the point of Saturdays fixtures. We barely managed to beat Southampton, being literally gifted a penalty and spared by Shane Long.
