Was Sanchez Better Than Bergkamp?

Judge us in May (May 2024 that is.)

Good morning positive people. Arsenal Andrew has a few words of wisdom for us and the fanbase.   “Well, we did predict a more subdued performance following the thrillers v LFC and Citeh, and so it proved. All eyes on the cup final, one imagines and it would not surprise me if Watford cause more […]
