On recent trip to Split in Croatia I was expecting a city of ancient history, good weather and beautiful scenery. It was apparent on arrival that Split had everything I’d expected. One thing I hadn’t expected to see were the blue, white, and red murals of the Torcida, the super-fans of HNK Hadjuk Split.
Footballer and Arsenal Legend, Dennis Bergkamp was immortalised in bronze last week at the Clock End of Emirates Stadium to join tributes to fellow footballing heroes, Herbert Chapman, Tony Adams and Thierry Henry. Following a friendly tip-off from Henry that the unveiling would be an emotional moment, Bergkamp spoke fondly of his years at Arsenal, commenting that although his statue stands alone, it was the whole team that made him shine during his 11 years at the Club.
