Okay so I am a bit biased about Arsenal - they are my team (even if they weren't, I'd say delicious Fabregas is enough to turn any girl..but thats another story). Anyway, I just want to report that not only Arsenal's footballing top class, their hearts are in the right place: the team is donating its wages from today's heavyweight game (vs Chelsea, in case you didn't know) to TreeHouse Trust, the UK charity that helps autistic children and their families, through early intervention and education. Watch the associated video 'Pockets'.

Today's action by the team is part of their Be A Gooner. Be A Giver appeal through which the Gunners hope to achieve £250k to build new sports facilities for TreeHouse. You can contribute to the appeal here.

In the pre-match chit-chat, Jamie Redknapp commented thus on the Gunners donation (to paraphrase) '...they've always been a real club, The Arsenal, and (this is) part of how Arsene expects his players to conduct themselves...'.

Go Gunners!!
