Be A Gunner, Be A Runner! Sponsor my Madness.

Hi guys,
In a random moment in the early hours of this morning, I signed up for the 'Be A Gunner, Be A Runner' event at the Emirates on March 31st.

It's a 6.4km race and given the fact I haven't ran in ages it could be very interesting.  I mean, if I have the choice; I won't even run for a bus!  But I do have two months to prepare and although I'm nervous, I'm also really excited.  There's something wrong with you, if you don't get excited by a challenge.  That's what life is all about.

As well as it being at my spiritual home, it's for the charity: Save The Children - Arsenal's charity of the year.  I'm sure you'll all agree it's a great cause and they will appreciate all donations, no matter how small.

If you can spare some change and wish to donate, you can go to my just giving page.
Or you can donate by text. Send NATH 81 + the amount - £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 - to 70070.                                            

Thank you all in advance for any donations and feel free to share the page on twitter, facebook or your own blog.  As I said, even £1 will help the charity.

Best wishes,
Natasha x

Journalists Are People Too!

I must admit, I don't think I've ever had as much grief in my life as I've had over my opinion pieces on Luis Suarez and Patrice Evra.  And this is coming from an Arsenal fan, who has lived in both Leeds and Manchester!

Now contarary to what some may think, I know that my opinion isn't gospel.  It is simply my opinion and along with that, my job as a journalist is to report the news.

Eight And Out!

With the news that Liverpool and Luis Suarez have accepted the ban given out by the Independent Commission, all talk turns to Andy Carroll and his disappointing start to his Liverpool career.

The 22-year-old is nearing his one year anniversary at Anfield and it would take a brave man to say the transfer has been a resounding success, or even a mild one.  A return like four goals in 23 Premier League appearances, will not keep the Anfield faithful happy for long.
