Arsenal win at the Emirates, Hibs beat Falkirk and a Golden weekend in Beijing for Team GB!

I watched Arsenal beat West Brom at the Emirates in the first game of the English Premiership Season. it was good to catch up with Tsui again and great to get back to the Emirates, a truly fantastic stadium!

Hibs also opened their account with a 3-2 win over Falkirk. I saw the highlights on Setanta and it was good to see Nish score two and look like his old self but still worrying to see such sloppy defending which will really be a problem for us unless we can get some more "steel" in there!
I will be at Easter Road for the next home game against Motherwell on August 30th!

Team GB had an unparalleled weekend with lots of medals including 8 gold and the cyclists picked up another one today!
The table looks like this today:

Country Gold Silver Bronze Total
1 China 35 - 13 - 13 - 61
2 USA 19 - 21 - 25 - 65
3.Great Britain 12 - 7 - 8 - 27
3 Australia 11 - 10 - 12 - 33
It all looks good and for 2012 we need to get more cycling, rowing and sailing events in the Olympics!!
