So the draw has just been done and Arsenal have been drawn with none other than Celtic f.c. After much hype from Sky sports all week along with BBC sport; arsenal can be drawn with celtic, Arsenal to be drawn with celtic, arsenal and celtic can possibly meet i find it sooo predictable and quite annoying that we have got celtic.
Im not saying the draw is possibly fixed or am i? but what i am saying is isn’t it quite a coincidence how we happen to be drawn together after much media hype on the subject.
Ooo well whats done is done, i am not too worried about Celtic, who have a very poor away record in Europe although we have never played them before if they play anything like Rangers did in the Emirates cup who according to stats last season are better than Celtic than we shouldn’t have a problem. Especially as we are away first, we can bring them back to the Emirates and finish ‘em off.
On the transfer front, Wenger has said that Arsenal are intereseted in Brede Hangeland who in my opinion would be our ideal signing. Height, strength and premier league experience. But what does intereseted actually mean? I don’t really want to go too much into this as i feel there is a long way to go. All i hope is that Senderos goes which would clear the way to a signing and pleaseeee let it be Hangeland!!
To recap here is the full draw:
