Slightly delayed one from me today. Had the work Christmas party last night but actually feel quite alright - managed to avoid getting too plastered, but did get home late and so decided to have a lie in. But no Mikel Arteta press conference yet, so I guess I'll just have to wait and have [...]

It seems like this week has been dubbed National 'sh*t on Arsenal fans from a great height' Week, after the couple of bits of news that emerged yesterday and this morning.
