Good morning members, let's get up to speed on a few new developments. This is post one of two. The second will be up early tomorrow morning - which is transfer deadline day!

In the midweek, Arsenal beat Besiktas 1-0 at home at the Emirates to seal qualification for the Champions League group stages.

A great and confident interview from Mesut in yesterday's Telegraph when he spoke to Henry Winter.

I couldn't help it... Had to post this minus a full match report and accompanying pictures! If life permits, I will try to post a more detailed and thorough match/pic spam tomorrow of yesterday's match that qualified Arsenal for the Champions League.

Until then, enjoy this beautiful illustration of mes-merizing Mesutosity:  From HOT (ROAR!) to adorable (meow!) in a mere 2.5 seconds!!

Clearly... it's a gift.  :)

I haven't laughed so hard in my life.

Skillz and BELLY and bad music. I love it. I experienced a near fatal cringe. Then I just collapsed into giggles.

"Cheaper than therapy" has never been truer.

And bless the video maker :) A soul-sister or brother, indeed.

Our modern-day, crinkly eared hero was back in action against Everton yesterday -


In Arsenal's gloriously fitted shirt for the season....

Saw this during halftime of the MLS All-stars vs Bayern Munich match the other night. Actually, I wasn't paying attention, and then was told, "You're not even paying attention!" and when I looked up I saw Mesut starring in this rather cool adidas commercial, solo. So I rewound and paid attention. ;)

It took me a few days to find it... but I finally did so I'm sharing it here!

Do we know when he returns for training? I'm assuming next week.

Also, Arsenal drew the Turkish team Besiktas in the Champions League play-off that will see the team traveling to Istanbul on Tuesday, August 19th. Feels like, no matter who he's playing for, he always gets the chance to go to Turkey for a visit! Here's his response to the draw:

Looking forward to his return and the start of the season!!

Darling Community Members:

Basic Housekeeping Notes

We cracked 1000 posts in this community sometime last week without me even noticing it had happened. Thanks for making it such a wonderful and active place!

We have a few new members since the World Cup (which happens after every tournament) and this is a note to say you are all very welcome. Read the Community Info to find out more about us and post away!


Yesterday I amalgamated a number of tags. And added several new ones.

  1. "Twitter" "Facebook update" and "Instagram" tags were all merged to form a new tag: social media update.

  2. All competitions for the coming year have been added. Those tags include epl 2014-15; champions league 2014-15; fa cup 2014-15, and capital one cup 2014-15

  3. Tournament tags have been added for euro 2016, and euro 2016 qualifying. Also world cup 2018 and for world cup 2018 qualifying.

  4. I also tidied up the tags slightly by putting all Mesut's clubs in the same part of the alphabet. Every one of his clubs is now "club: arsenal" or "club: werder bremen" rather than just werder bremen or arsenal or schalke or real madrid. This makes it easier for you to find his clubs when writing a piece that touches on one of them, rather than hunting through tags alphabetically. His coaches were already arranged like that, as were his bromances and players in his community who have tags.

If any members want a tag added, please say so in the comments.

General notes:

A little over a year ago we celebrated reaching 600 posts. We continue to average one post a day, and 30 comments per post. We gain a new member, on average, every two days.

I hope you are all happy here, and enjoy visiting this community and if there's anything you'd like to suggest, let us know in the comments.

Love, jenny_jenkins and suzanne410

I've been following this comm from its inception and I have no idea if this is my first post or not, but it's definitely the first one since 2010! Keep up the good work, bbs. Bring this comm (or livejournal in general) back to life!

Tell me, Mesut, when do you plan on coming back to training?Collapse )

So about an hour ago, I popped over to the local Adidas to pick up a pair of running shoes and look who I found lurking at the cash counter?

He was next to Gareth Bale and Messi but I've conveniently cropped them out XD
Fans of Mesut should start this video at 1:13:30 and should listen for 4 and a half minutes to around 1:18.

And let's congratulate ourselves Mesut arrived at a club where the fans genuinely do not give a crap what the media says - and they adore him.

I was reading an article in the Guardian about the lovely and gorgeous Marion Cotillard and while wading through the comments, I found this:

Germans defeated Portugal 1-0 in the U-19 UEFA Championship Final!
Which means the young Germans will be going to New Zealand as European champions as they qualified for the FIFA U-20 World Cup- New Zealand 2015!

This is a rare pic of the Nationals showing their support to the U-19 German team after they became world champions!
