The Creed of the Assassin Brotherhood teaches us that nothing is forbidden to us. Once, I thought that meant we were free to do as we would. To pursue our ideals, no matter the cost. I understand now. Not a grant of permission. The Creed is a warning. Ideals too easily give way to dogma. Dogma becomes fanaticism. No higher power sits in judgement of us. No supreme being watches to punish us for our sins. In the end, only we ourselves can guard against our obsessions. Only we can decide whether the road we walk carries too high a toll. We believe ourselves redeemers, avengers, saviours. We make war on those who oppose us, and they in turn make war on us. We dream of leaving our stamp upon the world… even as we give our lives in a conflict that will be recorded in no history book. All that we do, all that we are, begins and ends with ourselves.

Football Challenge:

 Favorite manager: Arsene Wenger.

People don’t understand what building a legacy is. Building a legacy is not just winning trophies, its having your contribution, your work, your life, be remembered and still felt years after you’ve finished. In this definition of the phrase, other managers hasn’t built a legacy, them built a reputation. Wenger, on the other hand, built a legacy. He came to Arsenal and immediately revolutionized training methods, tactics, diets, etc. Along with this came trophies, and this catapulted Arsenal into elite status, from there what hes done is of some importance. He recognized the need for a stadium that gives the club enough financial backing to compete, he saw this, accepted the challenge and now Arsenal have the best stadium in England, and a self sustaining economic structure. What hes done at arsenal only a few managers can claim to have done. For that, I will be forever grateful because in 10 years time, people will see the Emirates for what it is, trophies are irrelevant in this timescale. Arsene gives is life for the club, he love Arsenal more than anything, he is more than just a manager”.
