In this throwback-flashback edition, I’m showcasing another team that needs no introduction, Arsenal of London.
Most of the pics were from the 2016 MLS All-Star Game. Last year’s edition was in Chicago against Real Madrid of Spain, and this year’s match will be in Atlanta against Juventus of Turin, Italy. This match was held 15 years to the day the first edition was in San Jose at Spartan Stadium. The festivities included a convention for Arsenal Supporters both in San Jose, and a meet at San Francisco plus various meets and events around town including a concert and show by the Men in Blazers plus a game played by the younger MLS talent.

I need to say thank you to FootySF/Bay Area Gooners for getting a chance to cover the festivities for that week. This was one of the top events in the history of soccer in the Bay Area. Until next time.
