The past two matches have seen Arsenal win with two players scoring a brace each and both games ending in a final score of 4-1. Spooky or what? “Wenger Out” has been replaced by “There’s only one Arsene Wenger”. I wonder how long that will last … probably until the next time we lose. The following tweets show we’re a fickle lot:

After trouncing Galatasaray last Tuesday evening and making it through to the last 16 in the UEFA Champions League, the question on everyone’s lips was whether Serendipity would look favourably on us. Would we draw Barcelona or, even worse, Bayern Munich again. Would we be battling for a place in the last eight against PSG? Unlucky Chelsea! Luckily for us we drew Monaco. Fingers crossed we’ll make it through to the quarter finals …

Forgive me indulging my passion for all things Thierry Henry but judging by Twitter today I’m not the only one who loves that man. Today we heard that he’s hung up his boots for good and landed himself a job as a Sky Sports pundit (my next move is to find out how much it will cost me to subscribe to Sky Sports from January 2015). Good luck Titi! Having seen you in action with the BBC covering the World Cup I’m fairly sure that Sky Sports football coverage is going to become a lot more absorbing (at least for me if only for all the wrong reasons):

A lot of people have plenty to say on the matter of retirement. For some, seeing stars do so reminds them of their own need to go to SoFi or similar sites and research their financial options. For others, it is simply a sad time at the end of someone’s legacy. Speaking of, finally, from the great man himself:

Thierry. I salute you!
