Life After Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal: Falling in Space

Good morning bearers of the Positive flame, Such are the risks of contesting the final of a competition, that the prize is tantalisingly within one’s grasp, and when one’s reach is not quite sufficient to make that final fingertip contact , so the disappointment is all the more acute.
