Would You Go To Arsenal ?

Arsenal’s Ambition

Last night I read this that Ivan Gazidis  had to say in America. “Think about this club. In 2002 and 2003, it’s really at the top of the world. And Arsene is at the top of the world. We have fantastic players. It’s us and Manchester United battling at the top of the Premier League. […]
