What are the odds eh? It's a pretty good draw as twente aren't even that good by the Dutch leagues standards (Solid but unspectacular). Lets hope McLarens record against us continues with Twente.....

Howay Sheeps Teeth, do the Gooners.

Could have been worse for you lot, but you'll have to warn against complacency.

Brooksy - Of course the players will have to avoid complacency, I however am not worried in the slightest about any team managed by Steve McClaren.

Give him a slap on my behalf.

Could have been worse. The funny thing's that when Twente came out, I was saying to myself "Arsenal please, make it Arsenal." Don't know why I wanted them, more than those minnows lol. We've never faced them before. The travelling Gooners would be happy to go to a new place.

LD, I can't wait to hear what you have to say on the latest Blatter gem: "I have never said that Ronaldo is a slave, but I said slavery with young people. European clubs are trying to get 13, 14 and 15-year-old boys and bring them to the big clubs..."

just for the record, it is a blatant lie (on Sepp). Sometimes I wish I was a journalist.
