Why do I choose to vehemently defend Wenger throughout the pages and comments on my blog?
Quite simply because the man has set this club up for the next 100 years, and time will absolutely show this to be a FACT.
My main reason to blog is for me to record a timeline of my personal views and opinions, and to one day reflect upon them with my Grandchildren, who are many years away from birth.
They will be Gooners, regardless of who either of their parents supports, they will be Gooners, I will makes sure of that.
Also, I am convinced they will be Gooners because we shall be the biggest club in the land by some stretch by the time they come to being born into this world.
Arsenal will be the club of choice for every Glory hunting kid in the years and decades to come.
Only then will I be in a position, to ask them to go back to Circa 2009 and read my blog, and other blogs that last with Archives stretching back to said period.
They will then realise, in the midst of much derision from so-called Goons and the wider media of the time… what us true believers went through, and how we rode the storm of merciless anti-arsenal crusaders, who choose to throw mud at the club during a huge time of transition.
Of course, the anti-mob, will be telling their grandchildren about the staunch support they always showed the club through the transitional years 😉
Arsenal Football Club is in the blood for life, a true believer can see the glorious backbone and foundations the club have been given by Wenger’s stewardship, par excellence, throughout these fabled “lean years”.
These years will be talked about with much laughter and jovialness in the times to come, people will ask why was there anything to worry about? It was obvious where the future of the club was headed etc etc.
Only a timeline of views and deep rooted feelings from the period will hold sway when pontificating a true belief in the wonder years to come.
Naturally, many will have to change nome de plumes on the www, that shame of being such mental lightweights, and two-faced bigots, will nonetheless haunt their support of the club for eternity.
