Well it is getting close to the end of another calendar year, when Arsenal fans will start to look back at 2014 and see what the year was like for those of the Gooneristic persuasion. All in all you would have to say pretty good, because the muppets in the football media can no longer ask Arsene Wenger and every Arsenal player they interview about da da daaa, `trophy drought`.
The year could have been better as well, of course, with us starting it on top of the Premier League table, but we did at least get in the Champions League again and most clubs would be happy to have a place in that competition as their christmas present.
Speaking of presents, what would you as Arsenal fans like for christmas? Would defending the FA cup this year be the ideal gift? As long as don’t do a Man United and drop out of Europe altogether of course. Is it some serious spending by Arsene Wenger that you would ask Santa for? And if so, which players would you want the Frenchman to bring to the Emirates to hopefully give us the fully balanced squad that will be able to challenge for and win the EPL title?
For myself, although it may not be in accord with the season of good will and all that, what I want is for Jose Mourinho and Chelsea to hit a wall. Perhaps they could have to deal with the sort of crippling injury list that Wenger has had to deal with for over a year now, or maybe they could just lose form and confidence. It is not that I think Arsenal would then win the title, it is just to save me from having to see the smug look on his face.
Come on Santa, you do wear red and white after all….
