Wenger's Arsenal : Jonathan Wilson goes totally postmodern, referencing Said, Shakespeare, Sophocles, Monet, Liszt, Rembrandt, Bach, Matisse, Foster Wallace, Becker and Freud.

Actually, that wouldn't be a bad starting XI.

I loved the 2-0 win over Man City last year, but there were some dire games immediately following that. I admit the main reason I like the team is because of the style.

I'm just excited that the Gunners are coming to the US this summer. I figured with Kroenke moving the Rams to LA it would happen at some point - I just didn't expect it to be so soon.

Are you sure the Gunners are coming here? During the game I saw sideboard ads for "Arsenal in Sydney Summer 2016"...

It's scheduled for 2017 - always plan ahead...

Here's the link. I was at that game in 1977. They were rubbish.

sbacharach, SpoFi meetup for the All-Star game?

I live an hour from Carson and five hours from San Jose, so the All-Star game is not my first choice of the two, but if I go up for that game, well then, yes, definitely.

Rumor has Liverpool playing the Galaxy down your way, so that is an option too as we will most definitely be there.

I hadn't heard that - thanks.
