As we warmly receive our Greek visitors, it's ironic that the Olympian spirit was shattered in Germany last night. Yes I'm talking about Tevez, the epitome of the Little Lord Fauntleroy syndrome prevalent amongst modern footballers. The results that both Manchester Clubs had last night has been lost amidst 'Tevez-gate' so it will be interseting to see how the press behave should The Arsenal win tonight; a win would mean a better start to our Champions League campaign than both of theirs.
But lets not get ahead of ourselves. Tonight is a tough game. Ποδοσφαιρικός Σύλλογος Ολυμπιακός Βόλου are no mugs and we have our own problems with form and injury but lets see how we go. What this seasons ECL has shown is that there are a lot of teams on an equal footing and to successfully negotiate the group stage will not be easy for a great number of clubs.
It would be nice to see a coherent performance tonight as it will be another step in the immersion of our new players. A win would also give us a boost ahead of Sunday's league game, which is another hard game for us; not due to the debatable qualities of our opponents but because we are looking to string some wins together.
So I look forward to a Champions League night at The Arsenal. There really is nothing quite like it.
Ελάτε σε σας Gunners!
