UK Trip Day 1

Our big UK trip arrived and Friday night the Gunners took over Phi Itln airport. 54 of us wearing Red and Yeloow with the Rose Tree Gunners logo. The airport belonged to us and later that night so did our plane. We even had traveling fans as the Wilmot family joined the affair. 6 hours later we touched down Heathrow and took over London. We had another 10 of our family waiting for us and our 70 plus Gunner group was ready. After a quick hotel stop , off we went to White Hart Lane to watch Totenham vs Fiorentina. What an experience it was. This historic stadium is in the middle of a North London neighborhood. It is so cool to have a stadium in the middle of houses and shops. Most fans walk to the game. The stadium is small and has no bad seats. It provides an intimate environment between fans and players. The Spurs took the game 3-2. The chanting and applause by these sophisticated fans inspired my lads. What a way to finish a long day as we prepare to face off the London Lions tomorrow and then bus off to the Community Shield at Wembley between United and Chelsea. Go Gunners baby.......
