That's what Gooners will be chanting come August 2012. Arsenal yesterday announced the signing of Lukas Podolski from Cologne. Let's be honest, we knew this was coming for weeks but it is still good to hear about it officially. One of the reasons muted online for the delayed announcement was that Cologne didn't want the news to affect their relegation scrap.

Earning a 1-1 draw on the road, especially when they had to come back from a deficit, against an improving Chivas team that has always played Seattle tough at the end of a grueling stretch of games - in the long run, I think that's a fine result.
