The All-Conquering Ladies of Arsenal


By securing the Premier League title, The UEFA Cup, the League Cup and the FA Cup they have powered their way to an unprecedented quadruple. This included a “perfect” domestic league season in which they won every game, home and away, racking up 119 goals in 22 games (conceding only 10), culminating in a 6-0 thrashing of Leeds. Islington council have responded by giving them the freedom of the Borough which historically, and bizarrely, allows them to drive their sheep over the Borough’s common land and get free coffee from one of the area’s many cafes (ironically owned by a Spurs fan).

  1. Hi Tom, I wonder if you could help me. I am doing the speech in the council on Monday to honour arsenal ladies freedom of the borough – do you have any info or stats that would be useful for me to mention (and where did you find out about the free coffee!) Let me know

  2. Everything published was actually very reasonable. However, what about this?
    suppose you composed a catchier title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added something that grabbed folk’s attention?
    I mean The All-Conquering Ladies of Arsenal | Tom Steel is a
    little boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article titles to grab viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve written.
    In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

  3. Right now it sounds like Movable Type is the best blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
