Proud to be a Gooner A hard slog ahead of us.
Every Arsenal fan who is only happy when Arsenal win is on a high, high, high, after Sunday’s result. In contrast to some Arsenal fans who are only happy when Arsenal lose, or so it would seem. We will remain on this high cloud of happiness until Thursday finally arrives and returns us to the reality of a two goal deficit and the mockery of those Arsenal fans ‘who told us so!’
The know-it-all scribblers and empty headed chatterers of the media have suddenly discovered that we don’t have another top team to play, whereas the other three have at least two swipes at each other. (Well we knew this when we got the fixture list.) The scribblers are screaming, ‘Arsenal have the easiest run in of the top four’. Ah, hmm! Let’s consider something they don’t scream and shout at us fans.
Our good neighbour and close friend planned a new spud hole for the start of this season 2018- 2919. Unfortunately not being made of Arsenal ability to do things right they couldn’t get the toilet seats to fit the hole in the ground and they found themselves homeless. The mighty spuds homeless! Oh dear! What a surprise!
So they went cap in hand to the ‘Old Curiosity Shop’ that masquerades as the FA who love breaking every possible rule and pleaded help, help, help, or in other words S O S = Save Our Spuds. Start the new season by giving us a lot of away games and we promise we will have our new spud hole ready by Christmas. The ever accommodating friends of spuds, the FA did just that. In the first 8 games spuds played 5 away games and 3 home games. To do this meant giving Arsenal 5 home games and 3 away games.
‘Oh thank you, thank you sweet FA’, and so it is. We come to the last 8 games and low and behold 5 of them are away. In contrast the FA’s beloved spuds are going play 5 of their last 8 games at home in their new spud home. I am joking of course. Just as the Spuds were joking when they said ‘Sweet FA we will be home for Christmas – promise! Well for Christmas 2020, you surely didn’t think we meant Christmas 2019?’
I hate to put a damper on Sunday’s great performance and result. The reality is we have a hard slog ahead of us. For a start we don’t play too good away. Then the teams we play will be fighting for their Premiership life. They are not going to roll over because we want to play in the Champions League this coming season.
This ain’t going to be an easy run in. If we fail how the scavengers will flock upon us whooping their delight.
If we make 4th or 3rd then we will be just another bunch of failures, cos 3rd or 4th ain’t a trophy when its Arsenal don’t you know!
I don’t care what they say. 5th,4th,3rd, 2nd, 1st I am proud to be a Gooner. Always.
