I heard you all. You were saying “I wish Arsene would sign a central defender”. There were doubters amongst you, I know. “He won’t open his piggy bank. Come back in Ten Years Time.” Le Boss heard the debate and understood. “Sometimes it isn’t easy to get the deal done, but if I can find […]

One Of The Good Days

Yes it was one of the good days. Early doors at the Pins followed by cake and ale in the Tollie. So many friendly faces too.
