the beautiful game?

First time for ages on Saturday I went to the footie with our son James. He's been an Arsenal supporter since we moved from Sheffield when he was 9. We became Red members (hand over your cash) last year to try to get tickets for a game, with no joy. But this year's move to the bigger and impressive Emirates Stadium seems to have prised the door open ever so slightly for games with lesser clubs, and here we are for the 3-0 game v Watford. Have to say Arsenal played some lovely football, and the boy Theo will go far. Why didn't Sven play him having taken the courageous decision to take him to Germany? But you can only take so much slick football. So I'm looking forward to a real footballing experience in a few weeks time - going back to Hillsborough to see the famous Wednesday...

Good for you Ian! No glory supporters on this blog!

We'll discuss the Owls' performance in the community discussion; it's in the mould of lucking at our fiercest critics!

I hope James enjoyed himself.

Do the people at Hillsborough know you're returning? Will it mark a change in the team's fortunes? Will they let you play for them (could do worse)?

Thanks guys. 0-4 last night and a good manager sacked today. We've been here before... and no doubt will be here again. Come on Wednesday!

You must be pleased with the gutsy win over QPR, it might have saved Sturrock his job if he was only still there!?!
