I liked All or Nothing.

Whether or not players were quiet due to the cameras, it did show what a quiet, ‘stay in line’ type of team Poch had assembled.

It was noticable that one table chatting after the new appointment was Winks, Dele, Walker-Peters and Rose

Would have taken a point before KO. So can’t complain really. 4 from 6 against City and Chelsea. Best Arsenal and that’s a great return of points

Yeah agree. Was just so disappointed with that 2nd half performance though.

Not being funny, but that list of 100 songs I've done is almost certainly the best list of 100 songs ever made.

I read a news item the other day, about how statues of Churchill, Nelson and Drake might be removed throughout Wales.

One of the reasons give was that they were advocates of the British Empire.

I couldn't believe what I was reading.

When I was in Greece this summer I visited a WW2 war memorial which contained graves of soldiers who died fighting in the war in the Agean. The gravestones were very moving.

One of the ones that stood out read, "Tell the Empire, all ye who pass this way, that we who died serving it rest content".

What would they think if they saw us today ? 2 generations of Brits. English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, who fought to the death for their lives, their friends' lives, and the Empire ?

Over a million men who died fighting for it in those 2 wars alone.

How can we commemorate the victims of those wars, when we condemn the very thing they were fighting for ?

i know the Empire wasn't perfect. noone was anywhere. they aren't today, but more so in the 18th and 19th century. the british tried to lead the way in moral values, but they weren't the same values we have today. They did some great things like putting an end to the atlantic slave trade, spreading medicine, shared language, medicine, education, but yes they got some things wrong.

But that doesn't mean we were evil. We simply weren't. We tried to be the good guys, even if at times we weren't all that good.

But moroever, it's who we were. the Empire was US. It's like Harry Kane going round saying "down with the Kanes, down with the Kanes", because he found out his great grandma did something that by today's values would be judged unacceptable.

The negative way in which we talk abut Empire, as if it's something shameful, is total and utter madness. Our ancestor lived for it, fought for it, believed in it, and died for it. And we talk about it like it's the root of all wrong. It's absolutely disgusting. It's US who's shameful, not them.
