Our Community Shield.

Another season of English Premier League soccer is almost upon us! In honor of Arsenal beating Chelsea on penalties in the annual FA Community Shield match

We made a whole bunch of little pancake community shields of our own…

Turns out, the community shield is delicious with plenty of syrup and a big helping of scrambled eggs! 😀⚽️🏆🥞❤️

ps. English Premier League is back in full effect next weekend

FA Cup Champions.

We watched The FA Cup final live from Wembley this afternoon on the telly. I was so happy that my Arsenal managed to down newly-crowned champions Chelsea. It was a long season for the Gunners. It was really nice to have it end on such a high note…

Amid all the turmoil this season, I’ve always been very much Wenger stay.

Since he took leadership of Arsenal in 1996, Arsene Wenger steered them to 3 Premier League titles, 7 FA Cups, FA Community Shields and 21 straight Champions League appearances. His teams also set several English records: the longest win streak, the longest unbeaten run and the only 38 match season unbeaten.

I suppose there’s a chance that by getting rid of Arsene Wenger and making the change to another manager could reap more championships or maybe be more successful in the Champions League. But I think there’s a greater chance that the team would not be nearly as successful. I just don’t understand how people have been all upset by the club “only” lifting 16 trophies in the last 21 years. And how many other clubs would love to have a run of 21 consecutive top four finishes? I guess for some people nothing’s ever good enough. 😀 ⚽️ ❤️

UPDATE: Arsene Wenger has signed a new two-year deal! But he was told by Arsenal chiefs, You must win major trophy in two years.” No pressure there. Ugh. 😬

 

Happy North London Derby day!
