Its funny because if it had been another english team then maybe I would root for them but Arsenal I have to say not. I am watching it now and it looks like a load of bananas and raspberries have invaded the pitch!

News coming in.
Chelsea have confirmed an intrerest in the highbury squirrel and are preparing a bid of 27,000,000 peanuts and a sack of leaves for the talent youngster. Jose said he was very pleased with how he strolled around the highbury pitch, and slipped through the defence.

Decent result for Arsenal, should have been at least 2-0. Villareal looked strangely pleased with it - considering theyre facing a team holding the record for consecutive clean sheets in the CL youd think the last thing theyd be confident of is scoring 2 goals without reply.

You certainly did.
I remember during the old days, when 'attack attack attack' was often sung, a cat ran across the pitch at anfield causing the whole kop to sing.. 'A cat,A cat,C cat'..Funny times.

Robson paid £7million for Italian Serie A striker Fabrizio Ravanelli and £3million for Brazilian midfielder Emerson during the summer of 1996, but Boro spent the season battling relegation instead of chasing a top-five finish. Their task was complicated by a 3-point deduction imposed just after Christmas, as punishment for the club's failure to fulfill a fixture against Blackburn because so many players were absent due to injury or illness. The club's explanation was that so many of the squad had been laid low by 'flu that it coudn't field a competitive team, however the Football Association rejected this explanation.

Meanwhile, Boro were building up an impressive cup run and reached the first cup final of their history in March, where they faced Leicester City. The deadlock was not broken until extra time, when Fabrizio Ravanelli's goal looked to have secured the trophy for Boro. But Leicester then scored an equaliser and went on to win the replay.

Boro's 3-point deduction eventually cost them their Premiership status and they were relegated on the final day of the season. A week later they lost 2-0 to Chelsea in the F.A Cup final and became the first English club to finish in the last two of all three English major tournaments.
Good old Robbo, getting used to being the manager of the leagues strongest teams - holding up the rest...

Following the appearance of a grey squirrel on the pitch at Highbury last night, I see even the rodents at Arsenal are foreign imports
