The Arsenal take on everton tomorrow as we get back to league action and the match that the club is using to officially celebrate it’s 125th anniversary.
In terms of team news: we don’t have any healthy fullbacks and our keeper injuries have given us the return of the one and only…..Manuel………on the bench of course but still, yikes. Other than that we’re peachy though. Everyone else who was available for the midweek match is ok. We face an everton team who have given us trouble in the past but are struggling a tad. Likely because we knicked one of their best players off of them, but such is life. Should be a good match none the less.
The club will be celebrating it’s 125th anniversary during the match, with many old players in attendance and some special in-match stuff. The celebrations actually began yesterday with the unveiling of three statues around the stadium. They include: Herbert Chapman (revolutionary manager from the 30′s), Tony Adams (modeled on him celebrating his goal against everton in 1998, in last league game, during that title winning season), and my personal favorite, the Thierry Henry statue (modeled on him celebrating his box to box goal on his knees in front of sp*rs fans). The transformation of the stadium to include more of the clubs history continues with these newest additions, and nice ones they are.
