Football Manager 2010

Hi all…Wish you all a very Happy New year. I know FM 2010 has been out for sometime now and I am very late in my post about it. But I guess better late than never right? So here I am writing about a few of my experiences playing the wonderful game i.e. Football Manager 2010!

As usual, I began the game with Arsenal, my favourite team of all… And I must say I was a little disappointed at the ratings given to some of the promising youngsters at Arsenal like Aaron Ramsey, Carlos Vela, Jack Wilshere, Alexandre Song, Gibbs and the likes. They all peaked at a maximum of 3 stars. In real life though I think many, if not all of them have the potential to be top player for Arsenal. Ramsey and Song in particular have been sensation so far this season. Anyways I have never understood how FM 2010 players are rated anyways… Some of the ratings are such a load of crap while some sure are spot on.

So since Song and Denilson are not so good on the game (peaking at 2 and a half stars each) I went and bought a couple of defensive minded Brazilian Midfielders in Sandro and Hernanes (both peaking at 3 stars). Hernanes was already at 3 stars and so ready to start the first team for me alongside Fabregas in the midfield.

Next i bought a left midfielder in Jovetic who was promised to be a 3 and a half star player by my scout but seems to be showing a peak at 3 stars now. which is not that bad. I also bought Ibrahim Afellay who again is a 3 star player for Arsenal. Now i have enough good options in attacking midfield in Arshavin, Walcott, Nasri, Jovetic and Afellay. Afellay was a little upset because of the competition for places, but after i gave him a few games on the run he cooled off.

I have also bought some players for the future like Angel Di Maria (he is currently at 2 stars and peaks at 2 and a half). I am training him to play at left back since I sent both my back up left backs on loan, i.e. Gibbs at Everton and Traore at Udinese. Defensively i have bought Per Mertesacker who has been an awesome signing for me. I played him alongside Gallas for the first half, but since Gallas’s pace was slowing down with his age, I am giving Vermaleen more of a run in the second half of first season. Early February I have bought Chellini and De rossi who will join me next season. I will sell Hernanes then and use De rossi and Fabregas in the midfield. I have bought Hamsik as a backup for either of the staring midfielders.

I also sent Vela on loan to Udinese. Song went to Wigan for a season long loan spell and seems to have settled well. Extended Rosicky’s contract for 2 more years only to put him on the market once he signed. He is getting old and is injury prone. Sent Almunia on loan to Barca/Madrid and bought Hugo Lloris who is twice the keeper of Almunia. Bought a great Spanish young Keeper, I cant remember the name now but his potential is like 3.5 stars which is like one of the best for Keepers as far as I can tell.

Luckily none of my players were injured long term. RVP was sensational in the first season scoring almost a goal a game overall. Dzeko also played well averaging just lower than a goal a game. Eduardo contributed well when called upon, though his playing time was limited due to the good form of both Robin Van Persie and Edin Dzeko. Eduardo is a decent striker though at 3 stars.

Good first season overall so far. Second should only be better as I am on my way to win all 4 trophies that I was into. Which should mean decent money available for transfers for next season and also I have already signed De rossi(4.5 stars) and Chellini(4 stars) who are coming in at the begining of the transfer window. I have also signed Robert Enke (very sad to hear about his rcent death in real life) and Sergio Canales and Juan Roman Riquelme all on free transfers and they should also be joining my team at the start of the season.

All in all a very good first season so far.

Now lets come to the important part. What FM 2010 wonderkids have i signed for my team so far?

Well I don’t remember all of them offhand and I havent got the game running now so pardon any spelling mistakes. Below is a list of amazing young talent that I have amassed at the club so far:

  1. Lorenzo Crisetig from Inter
  2. Stephan El Shaarawi from Genoa I suppose
  3. Ryder matos from Fiorentina(bought for some 3-4 millions, but Benfica and a few other clubs happily offer 8-10 millions for him in a couple of years)
  4. Adrian from Spain (bought for 3.5 million and sold in 6 months for 6 million to Birmingham)
  5. Simone David cheap young Keeper (Juventus want him already after just 6 months in my team)
  6. Kyriakos Papadopoulos
  7. Gerson from Cuzerio
  8. Luiz Guillherme cheap GK from Brazil

There are a few more good ones. Will post about them later. Let me know if you have bought any good wonderkids yourselves and how they have matured for you.

Will update more details soon! Cheer!!!


Arsenal: Mid-season Review

We are in the middle of the season now as 19 matches have been played and 19 still to go. Its has been a pretty decent season for us compared to some of our usual competitors (especially Liverpool). We sit 3rd in the table as of now, 4 points adrift of the leaders Chelsea and with a game in hand. We play the game in Hand today at the emirates against a managerless Bolton side.

I fully back the team to win tonight’s fixture and close the gap to 1 points with Chelsea and overtaking Man Utd to the second spot on the Barclays premier league table. So I can’t say I can complain with us just 1 point off the leader at around the half way stage.

Injuries as usual have been a dampner on the season so far…We’ve lost Van Persie, Clichy and Bendtnar for long… Eduardo, Denilson, Walcott, Nasri and Rosicky have been flirting with injuries like Casanova’s with damsels!!!

This was supposed to be a breakthrough season for Walcott (at least in my mind). But he has struggled big time with injuries and hardly made an impact at all. For someone wishing to join Capello’s squad to Africa, he would have to have a really good second half of the season to impress the Italian Don. I think all Walcott needs is a run of games that will boost his confidence and his natural talents will start shining through again.

Nasri has missed the early part of the season due to injuries but has come back and fit in well and started slotting those lovely goals from midfield. He sure has a lot of potential and if he can remain fit for the next few years, he could really help Arsenal to some titles in that period.

Arshavin has continued to shine and show one and all why he is worth each of those 15 million pounds Arsene Wenger paid for him. He just needs to show a bit more consistency. He plays brilliantly against Liverpool and wins us the game, but then disappears for the next couple of games. If he can settle in some sort of rhythm to give in those wonderful performances consistently, then theirs no stopping us!

Diaby, Denilson, Eduardo, Rosicky etc. have all chipped in with decent performances all season whenever they were fit. But None has been able to hold down to a regular first team place mainly due to injury which has affected their performance. So it’s a sort of Catch 22 situation with these guys, but they will have to stay fit and push for a place to be able to hold onto a regular first team place.

At the back we have had some consistency with Sagna, Vermaleen and Gallas all fit most of the season so far and all putting in decent performances. Left back has been a problem case for us as we have struggled with injuries to Clichy, Gibbs and at times even Traore. Traore i think has got a good opportunity to show his class given Clichy’s and Gibbs’ absence due to injury. Traore sure has a lot of pace and needs to learn how to use it effectively to his benefit. Silvestre has chipped in decent performances when called upon too.

Our goal-keeper has been the weakest link for us all season. First it was the injuries to Almunia and Fabianski, and then it was some really comical errors from Almunia which cost us crucial goals. I sincerely think Arsene needs to buy a good goal-keeper and soon.

Upfront Robin Van Persie had been brilliant for us all along right untill he went off for his international duty and got injured. He was in a good goal-scoring form when he got injured and we will definitely miss his flamboyance up front. Bendtnar has also been out injured for some time now and it is a priority that we buy a good striker. We need someone big and strong. I think Edin Dzeko will fit in perfectly and i see him in the moulds of Torres. So thats my take on a new striker.

Fabregas has been sensational all season. And just keeps proving why the Spanish giants have been chasing him for the past few years. He has scored more goals than in any season i believe and we are just half way through the season. His cameo against Aston Villa was brilliant and he has matured as a leader of the young team.

One person, I’d like to give special mention is Aaron Ramsey. He has been a breath of fresh air every time he comes on the pitch. He looks more and more like the young Fabregas. I think Arsene is training him to be a long-term replacement to Cesc. And trust me he is every bit capable. His long-range passing is fantastic. His vision accurate. He has a good head over his shoulder and he is great with both feet. I am glad Arsene did not bother about the hefty 5 million pound (hefty for Arsene’s standard) and beat Manchester United to sign him.

All in all looks like a great season for us so far. We have Porto in the CL knock out stage which couldn’t have been better for us. If Arsene Signs a couple of good backup’s, one good striker and a decent defender, we could mean business at the end of the term.

Happy new year to you all!!! Cheers!!!

Let the season truly begin!!

Even though the season has begun long back and teams have played 3/4 matches each, the real season cannot begin till the transfer window closes and the shape of the teams becomes crystallized. This especially goes for the teams like Portsmouth who bought around 13 players in the window and sold around 11. So after major or minor overhauls in teams across the premier league and the transfer window finally shut on Tuesday we can now concentrate on football rather than the transfer gossip surrounding the game.

I will be commenting on the dealings in the transfer market of all the major teams and am beginning with the layout for Arsenal.

Arsenal sold its leading goal scorer for the last couple of years to Man City but did not go into the transfer market for any replacement. They also sold Kolo Toure and bought Thomas Vermaleen (who by the way is looking like a really good buy by Wenger) as his replacement.

Arsenal could definitely have done with some more good defensive cover both in the centre midfield and centre half positions and a better keeper should have been secured. I know finding good keepers is not that easy but that cant possibly be an excuse. But you know Wenger, and you should know that he will never agree that the existing squad is not good enough or big enough in spite of selling more players than that come in for the last few seasons at least.

I am not worried about the quality of the team we have. They are all good young players who have great futures ahead of them. What troubles me more is the fact that every year we have a few bad injuries to our players and that’s when we are faced with the apparent question of our squad not being big enough and lacking the depth to compete with our Premier league rivals. Why cant we factor in a few injuries and invest in the squad accordingly before hand?

I remember last season too, in January Fabregas was out and we really missed him bad and the team went on to draw a number of matches in a row  till Wenger eventually bought Arshavin on the last day of the transfer window and given some time he was settled he proved to be a very good signing for us. What I never understood then or even now is why Wenger has to wait till the last day of the transfer window to buy a player of Arshavin’s caliber? What is he waiting for? To get a cut price deal or what? I think that’s a big risk and should not be taken when dealing in the market for players of such high class. You never know when a rival might come in and scupper the deal for you.

Frankly speaking If Arshavin had come to Arsenal at the beginning of January, who knows how that bad run of draws might have turned out and we might even have had a chance at the title. Haggling over a million dollars cost Arsenal scores of points and in the broad scheme of things I really wonder if it was all worth it. I am glad that at least this year Wenger had his eyes on Vermaleen and closed the deal much earlier which gave the new joinee time to mingle with the team and helped his integration in the team to a great deal. The result of which is apparent in his performances from the first match itself.

I remember last summer we were trying to get Xabi Alonso from Liverpool who in turn were trying to buy Gareth Barry. Wenger went in with an offer on the last day of the transfer window which was around a million short of what Liverpool wanted. Around 12- 15 million pounds was the amount speculated then. For a player of Alonso’s class couldn’t we have bought him for what it took? For all you know it would have been us selling him to Madrid this year for more than twice the amount we bought him for. And Last season’s results could have been much different with the Spanish partnership of Alonso and Fabregas in the middle. Anyways, what’s happened has happened. We cannot change that but sometimes it pains me to see Wenger haggle over players of the class of Arshavin, Alonso or Nasri. He is too adamant and sometimes his haggling tactics backfire (like in the case of Xabi Alonso) and the negative impact of the same is very difficult to even calculate. Xabi Alonso was a smaller case to point out. Wenger’s policy has cost us many a good players in the past which includes the likes of Ronaldo (Fergie outbid Arsenal), Eto’o (Was offered by Barca in a swap deal for Henry), Wilson Palcacios who had a trial at Arsenal and we suggested him to Birmingham where he flourished and was snapped up by Wigan only to be sold a year later to spurs for a magnanimous profit.

So for all the shrewd deals Wenger has done over the years, he sure has missed quite a few too. Imagine Ronaldo having come to Arsenal instead of going to Manchester united. The last 3 years the title wouldn’t have been at old Trafford. Henry might not have left Arsenal for Barca and what not. But again we should let bygones be bygones and learn to move on.

One good piece of business Wenger has done in the past couple of years is snatching away Aaron Ramsey from under Fergie’s nose a couple of years ago. Ramsey shows so many glimpses of Fabregas when he was that age. I already think its Wenger’s plan to train young Rambo on the lines of Fabregas and groom him to take over the centre of Arsenal’s midfield before we sell Fabregas to one of the Spanish giants for a record breaking amount in a couple of years.

Arsenal teams looks to have good balance this time of the year especially with not many people out with long term injuries. We could have done with a better keeper I am sure, but Wenger decided to continue with his faith in Almunia. Almunia isn’t bad but he is prone to one off errors which can cost us some valuable points.

Defensively I think we are very well covered especially since Senderos could not be offloaded to any team. I still feel Arsenal should’ve stolen Everton’s deal for Johnny Heitinga and brought him to the Emirates and in the process offloaded Senderos to Everton (who were in dire needs of a defender to cover for Lescott’s departure to Manchester City). I rate Heitinga among the very best defenders available in the market today and he would have been a good backup for Gallas and Vermaleen. Anyways we still have Djourou, Silvestre and Senderos as backup for the centre half position. For Right back we have Eboue as a back up to Sagna and for Left back we have Armand Traore and Kieran Gibbs as backup to Gael Clichy. More than enough coverage I guess. Though the quality drop for the backup compared to the first team is immense at some places.

Given Arsenal’s new 4-3-3 formation. I’d prefer Alexandre Song over Denilson as Defensive midfielder simply because Denilson gives away the ball too easily at times. And I continue to say that Song is fast emerging into a great Defensive midfielder for Arsenal. Arsenal recently tied Bendtnar and Denilson to long term contracts and I hear one with revised terms is on the cards for Song too. Denilson can play in this position as a backup in case Song gets injured etc.

In front of Song I would like Fabregas and Nasri to play. Once Nasri is back from injury I would like to see him flourish playing his favored central midfielder role alongside Captain fabulous. Diaby, Denilson, Ramsey and Merida can play as back up for these positions in the absence of Nasri or Fabregas. Merida looked good when he came on as a substitute in one of the matches and he too recently signed a long term contract with Arsenal. Merida sure has potential and just needs to keep working hard in training to impress the manager for more minutes this season.

For the three forwards I would like Van Persie to play through the centre for the sheer reason of his height. Eduardo/Arshavin can play down the left and Arshavin/Walcott can play down the right. Obviously the front 3 formation is very fluid and they will all keep changing positions so as to make runs into the penalty box. As back up to the wide men we have Rosicky returning from injury, Walcott returning from injury soon, young Jack Wilshere with that sensational left foot of his, Carlos Vela, Fran Merida, Diaby, and Armand Traore etc. As a back up at the centre we have Nikolas Bendtnar who scored some crucial goals for the team last season. Then there are Vela and Eduardo who are natural strikers.

I think the squad has a good depth to it when you isolate each position individually. The problems for Arsenal have been when a couple of players face long lay-offs due to injury and there is not enough quality to fill the gaps.

In spite of all that I still think if Arsenals first team players can remain fit for most of the season and especially the crunch matches then we will have a really good season ahead of us and who knows a much awaited trophy might come our way.

Preferred line up: –




Sagna                        Gallas                        Vermaleen                  Clichy


                                                  Alexandre Song


                                     Fabregas                         Nasri


 Arshavin/Walcott                                                        Eduardo/Arshavin

                                          Robin Van Persie / Bendtnar

 Subs: – Fabianski, Eboue, Djourou, Kieran Gibbs, Walcott/Eduardo, Bendtnar/RVP, Diaby/Denilson/Vela/Rosicky/Wilshere/Ramsey

All in all I can’t say we need to replace some one in the first team (except the goalie) unless it’s with an established world class player. But the bench sure could have been strengthened to a great extent. But still if this Arsenal team cannot put up a good fight for the title as well in the FA cup and Champions league I am sure to be surprised.

 Go gunners go!!!

Man Utd v Barcelona final at Rome

Horrible Refereeing helped Barca to beat Chelsea to the finals at Rome on the away goals rule.

Chelsea got the lead in the 10th minute from a sublime left footed volley by Michael Essien. Barcelona did not have a shot on target for 90 minutes. It took them the injury time to score against a Chelsea side which was tactically superior.

Barca defense was running ragged on many a occasions by some good runs from Drogba, Malouda and Anelka. The referee denied Chelsea a penalty on more than 2 occasions both in replay appeared to be quite obvious.

All in all i feel sad for Chelsea. In spite of being a Arsenal fan, i feel bad for Terrry and Lampard who once again have come so close and are yet so far.

People might debate that Barca was the better side over the 2 legs. But i categorically deny that. Chelsea did a perfect European job away at Nou Camp. At Stamford bridge again they kept things tight at the back and counter attacked effectively.

Barca might have had the larger share of possession, but that counts for nothing unless you have something at the end of it. Messi and Eto were anonymous for most portions of the game. Barca sincerely did not deserve to go through as per me, but well, the Norwegian referee has broken Chelsea hearts.

We might be in for a great final all the same where we can see Messi v Ronaldo again. But Barca will be without both Full Backs Alves and Abidal who will miss the final through suspensions…
See you guys at Rome…

Man Utd 1 Arsenal 0

Another lame match at display in the first leg of the second semi finals of the Champions league.

Man utd started out all attacking and had a chance just after 2 minutes as Almunia was forced to make a fully stretched save.

Man Utd took the lead from a somewhat unlikely scorer in John O’Shea as he found space after Arsenal failed to clear a corner in the 17th minute of the match.

The goal did calm the nerves at both ends but made the game a lot boring. It was a night of good defense at both ends which was followed by measured attacks.

Almunia made around a dozen saves to limit the scoreline to 1-0. He was a man on a mission to make as many saves as the number of shots that came towards his goal. He did let one go past him from O’Shea but that was more to slack defending from Arsenal that his mistake.

Kieran gibbs at left back was phenomenal. He had to handle Cristiano Ronaldo in the first half and Wayne Rooney in the second half and did he do a fantastic job keeping tabs on both of them. He looked a bit nervous against Middlesborough the other day and i was so not sure about him being pitted against Ronaldo tonight. Maybe all the hype in the newspaper got to the kid. He was out to prove that Clichy should be looking over his shoulders going forward. He had one of the best games of his career without doubt and Weenger would be extremely pleased by his showing tonight.

Arsenals creative 4 i.e. Fabregas, Nasri, Walcott and Adebayor didn’t have much of a game and that was the reason there was no finished product to any of the Arsenal attacks.

Song i think was excellent once again and the more i see of the lad the more sure i am becoming of the fact that he will be one hell of a Star player for Arsenal in the future. Diaby though was disappointing as he kept losing posession and hardly created an attacking move.

Silvestre and Toure were pretty solid at the centre of defense. The defense surprisingly looked pretty good for Arsenal. And that would be a positive thing for Arsenal going into the second leg next week.

I still think Man Utd will prove too much for Arsenal in the second leg. Though i wish Arsenal can nip it with 2 goals in the second leg.

See you next week. Till then Adios…

Advantage: – Chelsea!!!

Chelsea have achieved what no other team has been able to achieve this season : A clean sheet at Nou Camp.

That tells the story. And believe me there really isnt much else to say.

It was a really disciplined effort from Gus Hiddinks men who knew the task at hand unlike Bayern Munich who were caught sleeping in 1 half of a football game and paid a heavy price. Gus Hiddink got it spot on tactically as his back four were able to control the famous Barca trinity with great ease and panache at times…

Messi was more mediocre than Emmanuel Eboue…Henry caused a few problems for Ivanovic on the left but the end product was missing. Eto looked like a sulking baby who knows his days are numbered at a team that is playing at its peak.

Petr Cech was indeed the man of the match. It was no even contest by any means thou the score line seems to suggest that. Overall Barca had around 20 shots at goal compared to Chelsea’s 3. So you can imagine that Cech had his hands full. And he was looking a lot different and more confident Cech compared to the one we saw against Liverpool.

Drogba had the best chance of the game but was denied from a decent save by Valdes. Eto was similarly denied in an almost one on one by a superb Cech save.

Guardiola’s side looked a distant shadow of the Barca we hear about in newspapers. Same goes for most of its players. Messi gave away more balls than Denilson does for Arsenal in a game. Xavi and Toure wer checked by Ballack and Mikel regularly.

Barca morale would sure be depleted after this draw and i wonder how it would go for them if Real Madrid pull one over on the Guardiola men in the El Classico at the weekend. Another major concern for the Catalan side will be that Puyol misses the next match following a suspension and Marquez limped off injured after the hour mark. So Barca are sure to lack experience in the centre of defense and Drogba and company will surely look to exploit that area…

I had told you guys earlier that Chelsea in Europe are a very difficult proposition for any sides especially over the two legs. The game isn’t over yet, but all in all it was a great draw for Chelsea though a not so great game for us viewers.

Lets see how it goes in the second leg. I will be here to keep you posted next week. But before that we will know for sure who Chelsea or Barcelona will face in the final of the Champions league.

See you tomorrow with the results of the match between the 2 English giants!!!

Champions League Semi Final Preview

I can’t seem to believe the fact that I am writing about the Semi finals of the Champions League!!

Many great players will be at display in 2 mouth watering clashes!!

Many great players will be at display in 2 mouth watering clashes!!

It seems like just yesterday when Chelsea was struggling to qualify for the knock out stages of the tournament. And Arsene Wenger might have been frustrated to have finished second is his group. (Though in retrospect I am sure Wenger would be happy now as all seem to have gone well for Arsenal as they find themselves in the Semi final against none other than Ferguson’s Red devils).

Well whether I believe it or not, it’s true as the Semi finals of the champions’ league are upon us. And we have 2 mouth watering clashes lined up for us.

First we will have Chelsea traveling to Spain to meet the current Spanish league leader Barcelona on Tuesday.

Barcelona vs Chelsea

Terry and co. will have their hands full against Messi and co.

Terry and co. will have their hands full against Messi and co.


It will be the true test for a Barcelona side that is yet to meet its equal this season. I say so because Chelsea is one of the teams that have had so much champions’ league experience over the last few seasons. They have players who are hungry to erase the memories of last year, where they reached so close and yet in the end it was so far for them.
All these things apart I think Chelsea are a team that can beat any team on their day and the way they thrashed Liverpool 3-1 in their own backyard makes you think they could pull one over Barca too.

I know with such a prediction I could end up with egg all over my face, but if and again IF it turns out to be true then I will have the immense satisfaction of telling you guys I SAID YOU SO… 🙂 My money will be on Chelsea to win over the two legs and qualify for yet another all English Champions League final.

I am not taking anything away from Barcelona mind you. Barca is a team that has flourished to immense proportions under the able guidance of Pep Guardiola. But they are a team that has already achieved so much this season I wonder if Guardiola can keep them motivated in these crucial last few phases of the season. Messi, Eto and Henry are still potential threat to Chelsea but I feel Terry and company will somehow keep them at bay.

Barca will surely score at home. But their away form is what worries me. I am not so sure they can come to Chelsea and beat them comprehensively.
Drogba is coming back in form and as we all have learnt to know now that he is a player of big matches. He is sure to perform well especially trying to impress those in his pursuit of his capability. He had seemed disillusioned with life at Chelsea at the beginning of the season and i have no doubt if one of the European giants come calling Drogba would go running towards them.

It will be a fascinating tactical contest between Hiddink’s Chelsea and Guardiola’s Barca where the eventual triumphant will be Football itself.

Man Utd vs Arsenal

Not just a battle between 2 of the best players in the world

Not just a battle between 2 of the best players in the world

Second we will see Arsene Wenger taking his young gunners to Old Trafford. Last year it was 2 English giants Chelsea and Liverpool meeting in the semi finals. And this time its the other 2 English giants meeting in a Champions’ league semi final. Just goes to show why the English Premier league is one of the best in the world today.

Wenger who has just rejected an audacious move by the German giants Bayern Munich to take him to Germany will be keep to keep his gunner motivated at their only chance of silverware this season. The gunners are finishing the season on a high with some exhilarating football and with 20 games unbeaten in the premiership and still going strong.

But the season will still be a disappointment for a lot of big names including Adebayor, Robin Van Persie, and Fabregas to have not won a single trophy in the last 4 years now. So this will be enough motivation for the big names to fire in this match so as to take Arsenal closer to their 1st trophy in 4 years.

Van Persie will miss the match due to injury and this will be a big blow to Arsenal. Also Arshavin misses the match as he is cup tied. That will make the creative options limited for Arsenal and Fabregas will have to take a chunk of that responsibility.
When you look at the sides on paper it’s not difficult to think that Arsenal look a somewhat weaker side given their youth and inexperience.
But Arsenal have proven it earlier that this perceived weakness of their’s is indeed their strength. And they could do so again.

Yet I feel looking at the way Man Utd came back against Tottenham in the weekend you just feel that this Man Utd side is still hungry for trophy’s and will go to lengths to win one. So my money in this one is on Manchester united and I know a lot of Arsenal fans will disagree and I could again end up with my face smeared in egg but I am willing to take the risk and bet my money on Man Utd. If Arsenal wins I might lose my money but will still be happy to see one of favorite teams in the Champions league Final.
So you see I will win either ways 🙂

Will update the scores immediately after both matches so keep watching this space for more details. Go gunners!!!
