    Question More delays to stadium ?

    To quote Lorraine from another thread... "And I think Sturrock said in Q & A session something about building starting mid-October didn't he?" ....I would imagine the contractors are now setting up on site if so. What will be the next excuse - waterlogged ground ?

My wife and I, both Barclays account holders individually, have been attempting to open a joint account but, despite two trips to the branch, we have been unsuccessful. My wife is...

    Brave Arsenal Squeeze Through

    Roma 1-0 Arsenal (6-7 on pens) (Juan, 9) We've always known that Arsenal's kids are talented. Now we know that they're brave as well.

    Travel news for Saturday 3rd Jan - Stop Gaza Massacre demonstration

    A Chelsea supporting colleague reckons this protest which is assembling at Embankment at 12:30 might cause some delays tomorrow. Protest info I'm passing it on because I would hate any shrimpers to miss one or more of our goals tomorrow. Cheers.
