I lost few years of my life and half hair after this game. TradeMark Arsenal season start.

A win's a win. Even if we won by a thread. We can't always have one-sided wins, and that's what makes you sit at the edge of your seat, screaming for your team. That's the name of the game mate.

Let's keep the faith going for the team. COYG.
