AKB Red Alert: Level 10
March 14, 2010
The anti-Arsène brigade were in full flow last night… up until just before half past seven.
Piers Morgan depicts the morons nicely…
“Two months ago, I’d have told you like many disgruntled Gooners that Emmanuel Eboue was utterly useless, Nicklas Bendtner couldn’t hit the proverbial barn door and Abou Diaby and Alex Song were a pathetically weak imitation of Vieira and Petit.
Now Eboue’s playing out of his skin, Bendtner is scoring more than John Terry and Diaby and Song have developed into a top-class midfield powerhouse.
Add to the mix Sol Campbell, who I thought would be a disaster but who has turned out to be an inspired signing, and I realise it’s just as well Wenger manages Arsenal and not over-hysterical, knee-jerk supporters like me.”
At least he has the testicles to come right out and admit his failings as a supporter of the Club, and more importantly of the Great man himself.
A very quick glean of some of the comments passed on Goon Blogs last night, before the winning goal, highlights these simpletons perfectly.
Of course, this morning, Wenger is the toast of the Goon blogosphere.
The beauty of blogging, and a fundamental reasoning behind my blogging, is to time stamp true feelings… a search of archived postings and comments can reveal much!
I think the, now legendary, dipstick who called Alan Green on 606 last night, typifies these halfwits.
For me, this season has already been a huge success… no matter how the rest of the fixture calendar pans out.
To still be in contention of winning the premiership, with a team decimated for large parts of the season through key injuries, is a magnificent achievement in itself.
We are here by default, I hear the dunderheads shout, Manure and Chelski have let us back in they scream…
Well if that’s the case, why and how are we the only other team challenging them?
Where are the mighty Liverpool? the up and coming Villa? money bags City?
How comes we are the lucky ones to be granted such a grandiose gesture of goodwill from all the other teams in the league, elevating us to joint leaders of the race?
The relevance of intelligence, has never been so high in the world of supporting The Arsenal.
Winning the title or the Champions League over the coming weeks would be a bloody marvellous moment in our lives, but it is certainly not the be all and end all.
The true joy of supporting such a historically great club is lost on many Gooners, the beauty in the wonderfully pleasing football we play is irrelevant to many.
Yes the game is all about winning… but in the end there really only can be one winner, nobody has any exclusivity on winning anything.
Get that right!
It is immaterial if we pay the highest prices to attend our home games, if this grates with you, don’t go, simple.
Win or lose, supporting a club is for life… not just for Christmas.
