Even though most of us Arsenal fans are not holding on to much hope of catching Tottenham and Leicester City and making a late challenge for the Premier League title, there is a chance and while Arsenal still have that chance we will not give up and we do not want Arsene Wenger and the players to give up either.
And it looks like our old friends at the FA still think we could do it as well. Obviously they do not want that to happen, or at least that is the only conclusion I can draw from their strange and unprecedented decision to name Mike Dean as the referee for every single one of the Premier League games left for Arsenal to play.
The powers that be have justified their decision as a chance for Mister Dean to prove that he is not completely anti-Arsenal after all. In fact they suggest that it is our fault for complaining so much after he sent two of our players off for nothing while allowing the Chelsea striker Diego Costa to go around ‘pinching and punching’ the Arsenal players in our game at Stamford Bridge this season.
Mike Dean said, ” I am delighted to get this chance to wreck, I mean ref the Arsenal games and to finally put to bed this ridiculous rumour that I do not like those loathsome, I mean lovely, Gunners. That time I did a little dance when Tottenham scored against them was just because I had a stone in my shoe, honest guv.”
Leicester and Tottenham have welcomed the decision and have decided to have a massive party to celebrate. It will be tomorrow, April 2nd.
