To be honest, I expected it to arrive later in the week, perhaps as late as Saturday morning. So you can imagine my surprise when I came home and found the silver special delivery placed on my leather chair. I knew instantly what it was and rushed to open it up and show my Mum. This was a special moment, my first Arsenal shirt with a player’s name and number on the back. Opening the packaging I pulled out the shirt and smiled. I was set for Saturday afternoon and my first visit to our new home over at Ashburton Grove. I am started to get a little excited already and there are still four more sleeps before the big day. I am planning to get there early, much like the last game at Highbury and make most of the pre match atmosphere, which in many ways will be the same crowd, slightly different location.

I know it is really early to be saying things like this, but bring on the weekend!
