The Kop & The Gunners – Birds of a feather

Post By : KingHenryTheFif As Peter Drury – the commentator of last night’s game stated at full-time, “make of that what you will”, the multiple conclusions of the game have not only left much to be desired in mid-season terms, but also equally revealed that the recent affiliations between Arsenal and Liverpool continue to provide high stakes in absolute relevance to the realities of the past, present and future; perhaps three high scoring reasons why we witnessed such a thrilling 3-3 stalemate.

Following the positive, stalemate a vibe around the Arsenal team was born, after an embarrassing sequence of disappointments at Stamford Bridge.
