Last night I read again a blog written by
@AFC_ChrisGooner “Arsenal putting pieces in place for future success” http://bit.ly/1QpmfXr .I have read it several times now and it a fabulous piece , well written and researched. Having read it I then tweeted
People didn’t see a plan not because there wasn’t one, but because they were unable to comprehend its enormity. Silly people.”
I expected the usual replies. you know the ones .“We were lied to . we could have done more, we should have done X, we should have bought Y, mistakes were made blah blah blah” . But to my surprise very few like that were forthcoming. So either people now accept they were wrong and the improvements are now so obvious that they can’t deny them or perhaps people are just happy and are prepared to forgive the perceived acts of negligence by the club?
I suppose the problem for many is that their ambitions are tied to the club. They are basically asking someone else to be ambitious on their behalf. The Arsenal board, and by extension Arsene Wenger are responsible for their personal ambition. An odd state of affairs and somewhat unique to football fans who in real life think that tweeting while sitting on the toilet is ambitious.
Still, I digress.Back to last night. I then got a reply that I believe is the single best tweet I have ever seen.
@Blackburngeorge “spend some fucking money!” ringing around the stadium the club spent £400m+ on. You couldn’t make it up.”
Brilliant. I rest my case.
