Arsenal To Host Brazil

Don't get too excited folks, we're not going to be playing them. They will instead be 'borrowing' Ashburton Grove for the second time this season.

Ronaldinho and Co will face Portugal at The Grove on Febuary 2nd as Portugal boss 'Big Phill' Scolari takes on his native land for the second time.

Brazil played the Argies at the Emirates last September in a game that ended 3-0 to Brazil thanks to goals from Elano (3,67) and Kaka (89).

Speaking about the game Scolari said 'It will be the second time I'll face Brazil since I took charge of the Portuguese team.'

'To me it's of course a special moment and I'm really looking forward to the match.'

The President of the Brazillian Football Federation added: We are delighted to be returning to the fantastic Emirates Stadium to take on one of the best teams in the world in front of what we are sure will be another sell-out crowd.'

Bloody foreigners, coming here with their skill and outstanding technique. I think Brazil should be made to play a guest side managed by Pardew and captained by Chris Morgan. That'll set these fancy dan foreigners straight!!!!!

Hahaha, so d3 you've never been on this site before then eh? Changing the subject totally did anyone else put their name down for the FCC EA FIFA Manager 07 trial on Vital a few weeks back? I did, forgot all about it and then the day after boxing day i received a copy of the game in the post. There was no covering letter and I've still not received any emails about it. I'm not complaining (Tho I did think I was something special as I thought I could play the game before everyone else, or at least i did think that til today when I found out it was actually released in November last year haha), but I am wondering why the article was put up on the site if they were gonna send the game out for free and get no feedback on it at all. Anyway, just thought I'd ask
