So, here it is. The World Cup. The plan here, at least for now, is to put up open threads for all the matches involving Arsenal players, such as today's match featuring Carlos Vela. Please also visit the SBNation World Cup main page for more World Cup coverage than one could eat.
Updates will follow, assuming Carlos Vela is on the pitch and doing cool things.
Enjoy the cup, everyone.
UPDATE: rather than make a whole new post, let's make this the open thread for France v. Uruguay as well. Let's see if Abou Diaby does well--he's starting on the left for France.
