Arsenal: Ignorance Is Strength

As an Arsenal supporter, something that both concerns and annoys me is the constant, unrelenting efforts by the mainstream media to sensationalize and manipulate bits of information to form a patently false narrative about our club.

Arsenal’s British Core Is Alive And Well
