    Arsenal Still Not Very Good

That traditional tale of misplaced opportunities and wasted dominance...

    No stadium yet

    Just as an update to the exiles, we haven't built the new stadium yet. I wonder if SZFC could secretly recruit about 100 odd new players who look suspiciously like architects, consultants, builders, electricians and plumbers and start them off building under the dark of night. Well...
