First of all I must tell you a little of my recent troubles, as I feel I have been neglecting Just Arsenal lately due to medical problems which ended with a long stay in hospital, which thankfully has ended with Mr Admin being just a few weeks away from a full recovery.
Obviously it was not easy to carry on writing from my hospital bed but I managed to keep the site going while hiding my laptop from the nurses – but obviously the quantity of posts took a bashing at a crucial time in Arsenal’s history and I was worried that I might lose a lot of my loyal readers.
But I managed to keep you all occupied and my work took my mind off my troubles, and now I am convalescing at home I am hopefully back up to speed and keeping you all up-to-date with the latest goings on at the club.
Just this week I was given a boost when JustArsenal was awarded a spot in the Top Ten most influential UK football blogs, which is not just a boost for me but for all my readers and contributors who have made this site what it is, and I am extremely grateful and have decided to give one of our community a special gift as a sign of my appreciation.
I don’t know if many of you actually notice the logo at the top of the JustArsenal website, but it is a load of fans all wearing Arsenal shirts with Dennis Bergkamp written on the back, of course he is one of the Gunners greatest players of all time and will forever be celebrated as such.
Well, I have just acquired from www.TheArsenalShirts.com an old JVC Arsenal shirt signed by the great man himself (with a Certificate of Authentication) and I am going to give it away to one lucky reader. To enter you have to have had at least 100 comments approved on Just Arsenal (to make sure it goes to a regular contributor) and you need to reply to this post saying why you deserve this wonderful piece of Arsenal’s history.
This competition will stay open until the end of the month when I will put all the qualifying names into a hat and announce the lucky winner. Anyone who is interested in any other classic Arsenal shirts should have a look at TheArsenalShirts.com who have a very wide selection in stock….
