“They (the press) are loving it because not much comes out of Highbury. But keep your self respect and remember who you play for and what that represents.”-George Graham

In these stressful times when all around us are rubbing their hands gleefully and internal turmoil rocks the ship with squall let us remember that players and managers come and go but, many that have served us and competed against us hold true to one immutable truth, and that truth is that The Arsenal prevails. Never, ever forget what a truly great club we all support and love.
