Picked up KK217 from the printers today and delivered to Aleef on the High Street and on the corner of Cross Street and Market Street plus the National Football museum.
All sold out of KK216 apart from 2 at the High Street shop because they forgot to put them on the shelf again, and had them under the counter! Can’t get the staff eh!
So, off to Londinium tomorrow, in order to make sure we make the kick off on Saturday. Daughter house sitting and making use of our telly on Saturday to watch the match.

This season so far : In the Community Shield it was that woeful 3-0 defeat. Their goals came from Cazoria (21), Ramsey (42), and a pearler from Giroud (60) as we held our heads in our hands and waited for the avalanche which fortunately never came!
Crowd was 71, 523.
They’re in 7th place with 5 points after 3 games with 1 win 0 draws and 0 losses at home.
They’ve beaten Palace 2-1 at home, drawn 2-2 at Everton and 1-1 at Leicester…….
In the Champs league qualifier they’ve scraped through 1-0 on aggregate against Besiktas. In the group stage they’ve drawn Borussia Dortmund, Anderlecht, and Galataseray.
In the Capital One Cup they’ve drawn feeder club Saints at home.
Last season : At The Etihad in December it was that fantastic 6-3 City win. Aguero opened (14), Walcott equalised (31), then Negredo (39) and Fernandinho (50) made it 3-1. Walcott made it 3-2 (63) but Silva (66) then Fernandinho (88) made it 5-2. Mertesacker (90+3) made it 5-3 but Toure (90 +5) finished em off with a penalty and Wenger thought we were lucky!
Crowd was 47,229 with 2820 Arses:
At The Emirates in March it was a 1-1 draw, City went ahead after dominating through Silva (18), but let Arsenal back in it through Flamini (53) and we were relieved to hang on for the precious point. Crowd was 60,060 with 2,934 Blues.
Our form at Arsenal: Last season’s draw made it
for City : DWLDD plus we had a 1-0 win in the League Cup a couple of seasons ago.
Groundwise: We’ll be in the usual corner, but a decent allocation at least. Tickets are half price, thanks to our club £32/£13.62/£12
Capacity : 60,355 with 3,000 for City
Main transfers in: Sanchez 30M, Chambers £12M, Debuchy £10M, Ospina £3M, Welbeck £16M.
Outs : Vermaelen £15M, Djourou, Sagna, Fabianski, Bendtner,
Comment: Very disappointed with Wenger’s continuous whinging about City’s finances. He’s become the most bitter, spiteful and jealous one of the lot, almost surpassing the rags. Fine when they were sticking 4 or 5 past us but not so much now we’re a threat. They are, however, a pretty tidy team these days and Olly Giroud’s injury forced them into buying Welbeck from the rags, who should fit in well with their style of play. So they’ve gone from a team full of French players to a team bristling with mainly poached English ones. Time for Nasri to step up in a big test for us.
WWTWTWShite: Averaged 23,824 in 1985, and it was 60,013 last season.
Pubs/parking : Usual pub is The Drayton Arms. Parking is crap as they ridiculously rebuilt the ground in London.
Sat Nav : N5 1BU
Re FFP - better idea would be to kidnap Platini if he comes!
