"It was the winter holiday and I was back in Togo having a kickabout with friends when my phone rang.One of the boys answered it and said, 'Manu, it's Arsene for you'. 'Arsene who?' I said. 'Arsene Wenger', he said. 'Get out of it', I said, and grabbed the phone off him. But then I heard the voice. 'Allo'. F*****g hell. It is Arsene Wenger!"

Bergi's Testimonial First Match At Emirates Stadium

Firstly, i would like to say sorry for the lack of posts recently, i have been very busy with table tennis... yes table tennis and lots of other stuff, and the fact that my internet connection was down did not help.

Anyway, Dennis Bergkamp's testimonial match will be the first match to be held at the Gunners new 60,000 seater stadium, Emirates Stadium. It will be a fitting end to an Arsenal career of the only remaining player of the Pre-Wenger era. Bergkamp's testimonial will be held on the 22nd of July. Bergi said: "What will make the occasion extra special is not only will it be the first-ever match at Emirates Stadium, it will be an opportunity to see Arsenal players past and present on the pitch at the same time."

The Arsenal Ladies have secured a 3rd straight league title, beating rivals Charlton in the 2-0 thriller Meadow Park. The Arsenal Ladies have had a battle with the Charlton Ladies all season, with Charlton beating Arsenal in the League Cup final, Arsenal beating Charlton in the FA Cup semis and this win to secure the title with 1 game to spare was the decider. Arsenal have the chance for the double if they can now beat Leeds in the FA Cup finals.

Sol Campbell's nose is broken! Not a surprise after seeing the amount of blood flowing from his nose during our visit to Portsmouth. Wenger said that it will be up to the specialist to decide if he needs surgery or he can put it off till the end of the season because he has no breathing problems. He the doctor decideds that he needs surgery, Sol will be out for up to 3 weeks but Wenger believes he can rejoin the squad after a week. No matter how long he will be out, if he does need surgery, Sol will be out of the first leg of our Champions League match against Villarreal, eventhough I doubt he would have started anyway.
