‘Save The Children’ is the new Charity Arsenal will be in partnership with and the club will unveil this today before The Emirates Cup begins. We all know how much stick Arsene gets for signing the young plays, so when I heard this I chuckled, just for a moment.
I thought it was quite funny :)
In no way though am I ridiculing Save The Children, it’s a fantastic charity which helps transform children’s lives across the world and if you want to donate, please follow the link in the sidebar.
Our Chief Executive, Ivan Gazidis said:
We are extremely proud and excited to partner with Save the Children. We have a tradition on and off the pitch of bringing the best out of young people and know the Arsenal badge can open the door to youngsters who may otherwise not be reached. By working with Save the Children we will provide more young people around the world with the skills and opportunities they need to be the best they can.
Justin Forsyth, Chief Executive of Save the Children added:
We are absolutely thrilled to be joining with Arsenal Football Club on this exciting new partnership. With our combined local and global reach we can make a huge difference to children’s lives in the UK and overseas. Indeed, it seems that everywhere I travel children tell me they support Arsenal! This partnership is built on our common belief that every child is born to fulfil their potential. By working together on education we can help thousands of children do just that.
Reports came out yesterday suggesting Mata will be at the Emirates today with Ivan so whilst you are sat in your seats, or tuned into ESPN, keep an eye out and keep us updated – you never know, his signing might be confirmed just before the tournament kicks off, wouldn’t that be something?
Great news came out from Arsenal, well from Arsene Wenger and Young Guns broke the news that Wenger intends to keep Lansbury at the club. I’m chuffed and hope we see him playing this weekend and that convinces him not to ask for a move on for first team football.
Henri has the talent to play for Arsenal football club and he has a chance to play for us this season.
Amen to that Arsene.
Talking of Arsene, he’s was more open yesterday about any potential signings:
Our business will be done sooner rather than later but it is difficult to speak about any individual player because that makes things difficult, I cannot complain about other clubs talking about our players and then do the same.
I like the player [Mata], but that does not mean we will buy him. The other player [Jagielka] is under contract at Everton. If we want to buy a player, we need first the agreement of their club.
Well, well – Go Arsene Go and I don’t mean out the door…… ;)
Have a good day all, enjoy the footie….
