Now that I know the Arsenal fixture list for next season, I cannot wait for the first ball to be kicked off and the manic soul-destroying circus we all know as Arsenal football club taking us on another journey of ups and down.
I love Arsenal like all of you do, it dominates my life and what I try to explain to people that are not as enamoured about football as we all are, is that it is more than just supporting your favourite club. It is about an English summers day started off with a fry up, a quick pint down the pub, a visit to a UK bookmakers to lose some more money and then off to watch the game, either at the pub or even at the stadium itself.
It is about planning Boxing Day around the game and making sure you are not too hungover on New Years day, it is about visiting foreign lands and soaking up their fantastic cultures, it is about endless debates with friends and foes alike, it is about Twitter, Skysports on transfer deadline day, it is all these things and much more.
And it is because we love our club so much that we get so angry with them when we feel that they have let us down, and if Arsenal is to take anything into consideration it has to be us, the fans, because we are the ones that pay the biggest price of their failings.
We may go over the top with our criticisms and we may be glorified armchair wannabe managers but we are the ones that pay for everything, it is our subscriptions that enable the TV companies to pay billions, it is the fans that buy the merchandise, it is us that pay the inflated ticket prices and without us there is no product.
Arsenal and other clubs must listen more to the fans, they have to give us much more consideration when they make decisions that affect us directly, or for that matter, indirectly. For too long we have been ignored and basically treated appallingly with substandard food at the stadiums, terrible transport, bad parking, silly kick off times, new expensive kits every single season, huge season ticket costs and so on.
Fans are the life and soul of any football club, we are that twelfth man, we are the ones that support through thick and thin and we are the ones that will always be loyal no matter what, but sometimes we will feel that we are being hard done by.
How do you think we are treated by Arsenal?
