Great ground, great atmosphere, the moment you step out of Gelsenkirchen Hauptbahnhof you know that the city lives and breathes Schalke 04.
That seems a nice ground, I've always been fascinated with that one in particular because it's the first ground in Europe that has the retractable pitch. We've got a stadium with a similar system in Phoenix. It gets really loud in there, which is always good.

BD had one shot on goal in the 2nd half and made it count....
Flamini has always been a fav of mine. He's kind of like the guy in the Orwell quote: he does the dirty work so that the rest can play pretty. I knew we would have a hard time without him last night.
Arsenal were nothing without Flamini yesterday. Ozil needs someone to win the ball for him.
Also can't see why Arsene doesn't start both Ozil and Carzola?
