Just two of the reasons that we support Arsenal. Or should I say, FOUR!!!
Oops. Got a late start this morning and missed posting my preview of the soccer game. This is what we wrote....
The Community Shield game is like the NFL Thursday night opener. It's a BIG deal. It's Chelsea, winner of the Premier League title, against Arsenal, winner of the FA Cup. The game is at Wembley, THE showplace for soccer in England, and both teams are arch-rivals from London. Quite delicious. Also tasty is the fact that the coaches, Jose Mourinho of the Blues, and Arsene Wenger of the Gunners, CAN NOT stand each other. The only problem is, Wenger is 0-13 against Mourinho. So, is he due, or will he crash again??? We're leaning to due for a couple of reasons. Arsenal comes into the match against Chelsea with great confidence after winning the Emirates Cup last weekend. The Gunners destroyed French giants Lyon 6-0 and also beat Wolfsburg. The last part of the puzzle is in goal. Petr Cech guarded the twine from 2004 to 2015 at Chelsea, but took a bundle of Euros to sign with Arsenal. Cech is one of the best keepers in the world (he holds a Czech professional league record of not conceding a goal in 903 minutes) and would LOVE to keep a clean sheet against his former club. Gimme half a Benjamin on the Gunners to win ($50 to win back $95) and another half a Benj on the draw ($50 to win back $120).
Didn't have any action yesterday, didn't have to press any buttons.
