There is no getting away from the fact that the events of today (Tuesday) have been at odds with the feel good factor generated over the course of the pre-season. The announcements that confirmed the sale of Red & White Holdings Arsenal shares to KSE provoked quite the reaction, understandably. This day has been on […]
