Arsenal fans enter Utopia
August 13, 2010
Wenger has never been right.. has he? (note to the simpletons: tongue is firmly in my cheek here)
When he helped guide our beloved club to doubles, season’s unbeaten, cups galore… the issue was “too many foreigners” or “Wenger is killing England”… etc (you know the guff, some of you so-called goons even participated in such guff talk)
We now see every successful team in Europe, full to the brim with overseas players, Inter Milan won the treble last year with maybe a pair of Italians in the starting eleven at most, the large majority of the time, they played eleven “foreigners”
Was Mourinho labelled a killer?
The Chavski and Manure sides are full of foreigners now, they are even buying kids from overseas at an exponential rate… was Wenger not the pioneer in this field? Was he not labelled a wrong un for pinching other clubs academy kids?
So why are Fergie and Co not getting the same treatment? At least they caught up with the ways of the genius…. they usually do!
This week saw a turning point in the fortunes of Arsenal.. and England, mark these words, they will ring true within the next couple of years.
Domestic success for the young England players with Arsenal, and possibly the first success for the International team for almost half a century.. owing to a nucleus of Gunners.
Gunners produced by the Arsenal, not bought in by the Arsenal.
You see, Wenger knew the likes of Bentley, Pennant, et al, simply did not have the minerals, there aint no flies on the guv’nor you know.
So over the past decade or so, we have seen what the likes of Manure, Pool, Chavski.. and all those other great institutions of football, have produced on the England talent front, and we have seen just how successful and positive the work of the respecitve managers of the aforementioned sides has been for the National side….errr… sorry? Who killed England???
Maybe the talk in the coming years will centre on Who made England after 50 years of shit!
So Season 2010/2011 is upon us, and this Gooner is feeling very smug and excited.
Excited by the wonderful mix of youth, peak age, and experienced players we have in the composition of this squad.
Oh.. and not to mention those Arsenal built English players… JET, Frimpong, Lansbury, Gibbs, Wilshere, Eastmond.
With Aneke, Afobe, Yennaris et al coming through over the next 18 months.
Then Ansah the starlet at the level down.
Hmmm… seems Arsenal have a conveyor belt of technically gifted young English players coming through… who is to blame I ask?
Surely Wenger has made another cock-up somewhere? (note to the simpletons: tongue firmly in cheek…again!)
Liverpool up first on Sunday afternoon.
Sunday morning sauna and steam down at David Lloyd’s, read of the sunday papers, nice Roast for Lunch, settle down with a sumptuous Chilean Merlot, SKY HD on the go….
the greatest football team in the world back in my life for another 9 months.
Life is sweet, life is GOONERTASTIC.
The weekend starts again tonight, ATVO is back… Lofty, Shovell and the gang are on from 7pm, and yours truly may even be on !!
