"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!"
-Emmanuel Adebayor

Arsenal are sponsored by 'Dubai' for one night have confirmed that we will wear a 'unique' kit against Hamburg tonight because Hamburg also have Fly Emirates as their shirt sponsors and UEFA rules state that no clubs with the same sponsor can play each other. So the two clubs came into the agreement that Arsenal will wear the away team will wear the 'Dubai' kit. Which means we will wear 'Dubai' tonight and Hamburg will wear the kit when they visit Emirates Stadium in November.

Thierry Henry is out and will take no part in the match as he has suffered a minor foot injury that he sustained against Italy while playing for France. We will be our for 2 or 3 days so nothing to worry about, he is still available for the Man Utd match. Anyway, the 18-man squad list is out and the only surprise entry is Alex Song.

Our ladies had to fight back from 3 goals down to beat WFC Rossiyanka 5-4 in our opening match of the UEFA Cup. All 5 goals were scored the the Scottish captain Julie Fleeting.

Cesc Fabregas has apparently signed a contract that will keep him at Arsenal for the next 8 years! Although there have been reports that the contract will earn him about 20m pounds, over the next 8 years im sure he will prove he is worth every penny.

And another part of Ashley Cole's book 'My Defence' was released. This time i found it more interesting as it involved the infamous 'Buffet Battle'. And he seems to blame Fabregas for starting it(by throwing a piece of pizza at Fergie), though all he said was, the player was not French or English. Anyway, you should take everything you read from his book with 7kg worth of salt!

Till tomorrow, bye.
