  • Pre season – it only counts when you want it too
    So on Saturday, Arsenal beat Benfica 5-2. To some, it was a good victory and showed us moving forward. To others, it was “just a friendly”. Roll on 24 hours and Arsenal lost 2-1 to Sevilla and everyone had done a 180. Those that called it “just a friendly” were ... read more
