Arsenal Women never made it out of the Women’s Champions League last season – let’s hope they do far better this season, even going all the way! Our Gunners nearly got there 2 seasons ago when we went out in the semi-finals, losing to Wolfsburg at a sold out Emirates stadium.

Do you think we can go all the way in the Champions League this season?
