Who will Arsenal draw? Will it be Barcelona? Will it be Real Madrid? Or Bayern Munchen? We will have to see today. Either way Arsenal will probably fall out in the round of 16 again. Yes, yes stay positive. I’ve been positive but its hard to be with key positions not being filled as of yet. Let’s hope and see if anymore signings will be coming in to reinforce.

Peace out,
