Arsenal. The official club of Bill Murray's Groundhog Day. The purveyors of tidy football and fiscal responsibility. For detractors of the club, read an obsession with spineless attacking midfielders and a stinginess bordering on madness.
Say what you like about the London club, but their track record speaks for itself. 13-time First Division/Premier League champions, 12-time FA Cup winners and holders of a remarkable streak of six straight eliminations in the Champions League round of 16 — this club has been there, done that and bottled it.
Ludogorets Razgrad travelled to London to face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, and no one believed the side from Bulgaria would emerge with a result. Even English pubs forsook trying to entice patrons as there was simply nothing to see here.
Bob Bradley thinks he’s one of the world’s best managers. So we didn’t expect him to be intimidated by his surroundings when he faced off against Arsène Wenger and Arsenal at the Emirates in his first Premier League match. In the end, Swansea were unlucky not to get a positive result against the Gunners.
