Still Here

Just a quick note to let you know i’m still here…

Last weekend saw Manuel Almunia drop a clanger of gargantuan proportions which gifted West Bromwich Albion a 2-0 lead over Arsenal just shy of the hour mark. Despite Andrey Arshavin and Robin Van Persie clawing back two goals for The Gunners, only time will tell how costly Almunia’s error will prove in the race for the Premier League title.

Seeing as my last post came after another Arsenal gaffe worthy of its inevitable use on countless blooper DVD’s it seemed like the perfect moment to recommence with the blog. Work commitments, an increased onus on training/fundraising for my Mount Kilimanjaro charity trek (which is now scarily close) and a trip to Barcelona for Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat at Camp Nou have led to an extended period of silence on itbeganin1992.

Despite the result, being forced into the ground before the game and held afterwards the trip was fantastic; plenty of paella, tapas, beer, Spanish measures of rum and a photo opportunity with Hristo Stoichkov and Arsene Wenger who were watching the Blackpool v Chelsea game together.
