Titbit for today is, Fulham want Arshavin and we are rumoured to be in for Dembele, so how about a straight swap?
Anyway, enough of that, back to the post and I have to admit I am feeling very jealous!
I woke up a few mornings ago, finally taking on the realisation that this season was over and all we could manage was securing Champions League football for another year! Just!
This season I have witnessed Liverpool FC winning the Carling Cup and as I sat and watched their celebrations, I was so envious!
The next painful memory was watching Chelsea FC celebrating their win of the FA cup, I could feel the hairs standing up on the back of my neck, not a feeling I like really!
In between those celebrations by others, we suffered too many losses and draws during our fight for 3rd place.
The highlight of my season was clawing back a 10 point deficit from that lot just down the road and also finishing above the newly crowned Champions League winners but then I had to witness the last weekend of the Premier season, where we had to win against West Bromwich Albion away from home, while the Totts had to win at home to pip us for that 3rd spot.
The highlight of that day for me was fluking the three points until I had to suffer yet another celebration moments after, this time it was Manchester City, who managed to fight until the dying moments of Fergie time to secure the Premier League title.
I watched them lift their trophy and I could almost feel their happiness but again I had that feeling of jealousy – even the sight of the Manchester United players full of doom and gloom as they heard the commentary during those final few minutes at the Etihad Stadium, wasn’t enough to make me smile, well, not for long!
This weekend I watched Blackpool v’s West Ham – a game where the winner would be promoted to the Premier League.
It was a very tight game but West Ham came out triumphant and the celebrations started all over again with their players running around Wembley with glee.I was happy for them, but still l felt pangs of jealousy.
A couple of hours after that game I watched the Champions League Final between Bayern Munich and Chelsea and of course I wanted Chelsea to win because it would mean that the Totts would be the team to make way for them in the competition next season, even I need to smile some of the time.
I had hoped that Arsenal would be the first London club to lift this title, but we are too prim and proper and have to look as if were doing it the right way, which means we will never win it.
The presentation started, the thrusting, the players with the cup parading together with the high jinks round the stadium.
Abramovich finally got his hands on the trophy that has cost him so much money.
Can you imagine Usmanov or Kroenke sitting perched on the edge of the hoarding with their legs dangling, clapping in unison with the Chelsea fans?
No me neither.
Will Roberto Di Matteo keep his job? Who effing cares I had the hump again.
I have watched so many games this season and a lot of finals, none of course which involved Arsenal, no, my highlight of this season has to be seeing us beat West Bromwich Albion!
I must be a very sad supporter!!
This Arsenal side has again won bugger all yet again!!
For the sake of our club and for the sake of all us fans, sort this team out please Stan and your merry men and give me something to celebrate or at least something to be proud of, other than just being a Gooner of course who has to suffer watching others be victorious……….
I can’t take another season of this…..
