Hello friend. by Wizardry
Boy what a week it was for you and me wasn’t it? Excitement levels have gone down below zero percent and it seems it’s going to take a while before it goes up again. See, in ancient Rome, people used to watch other people have fun and enjoy themselves with harmless lions in a stadium which was slightly cheaper than the Emirates.
But you and I have been stuck in purgatory where the only form of entertainment is international qualifiers. No worries though, I have found some fascinating things while I was going through the trash we call the internet , like how Mr. Neville’s photo-bombing addiction caused mayhem in a family of penguins(see the perfectly genuine phooooto), and also how Kanye ‘Gay fish’ West is planning to run to be POTUS in 2020, which is in 5 years. You know in my country we have our own calendar and its still 2007. And five years later means 2012 right? So maybe the Mayans weren’t wrong after all.
Oh and in case you didn’t know, STOKE will arrive on Saturday at the Emirates. Shawcross has been a Gooner favorite for a while now and whether we’ll see that brand again, I haven’t the faintest idea. In all seriousness, saying that this game is an important one for Arsenal and Arsene would be an understatement. With two below par performances at home, fans have been more skeptical rather than optimistic about the club’s title credentials.
Arsenal need to get their mojo back. More importantly, Arsenal need their fans back. And who better to get us going rather than Aaron Ramsey himself. The combination of Aaron and Mesut has produced some wonderful moments at the Emirates. And with the probability of him being deployed on the right wing again being high, I expect no less than a man of the match performance from him.
Before I leave, I want to ask if we can have a reasonable debate on whether Danny Welbeck’s injury has a huge effect on our season or do you think he’s replaceable (Campbell, Iwobi, Owen Gole)?
