There is only one place to start this morning and that’s with the Champions League Final.
Congratulations have to go to Chelsea who huffed and puffed a bit at times, but when it came to penalties to decide the result, they showed great strength to beat Bayern Munich.
Had Robben converted his penalty chance during the game, things would have been so different but he didn’t and that’s all that counts.
What a goal Drogba scored to take the scores level, just showed what a big strong striker can do didn’t it, how often do we score goals like that?
Well done to them….
Will they be the only London club to experience success in this competition or will we one day see our own Captain standing tall with that big trophy in his hands?
Or will another London club ever find themselves in the final and gain success, Fulham maybe or Qpr?
I can’t think of any other.
Since Arsene Wenger arrived, we have always made it into the Champions League, sometimes just scraping through but regardless, we have always been there.
It’s well-known that this competition was the one that Roman Abramovich wanted to win the most, and now he finally has. It’s also the competition that Arsene Wenger wants to win before he retires and now he has this summer to make sure that we could really be in with a chance next term.
My own preference would be winning the Premier League and the domestic cups but should we not be able to do that, let’s at least have a team/squad that looks like it’s in with a chance.
A squad with players who ‘fight’ from start to finish each match, players who want to play for Arsenal and are proud to be part of such a prestige club and anyone who doesn’t want to be playing in red and white, get rid of them and sign players who do, regardless of who they might be…
If we don’t we will never improve and the trophyless seasons will go on for many years and no doubt Chelsea will remain the only London club to win the Champions League.
Make this summer a good one Arsene, starting today with Yann M’Vila…..
