    And another thing....

    ....while some are banging about our club, money, the haves and have nots..... I used to enjoy a game of football, and spent years and a lot of the folding going to Highbury in the times when, if we finished in the top six, it was a good year. Years when we had nothing, only the occassional FA Cup win. And then along came Arsene Wenger. If I enjoyed football before him, I certainly woke up to what we had been missing, and so did the rest of the football world. So now when some are finished trying to bury Arsenal and Wenger, with their constant whinging on about money and players. Please try to remember it was an enjoyable game once(results, come what may) and we lived and died each week for Arsenal(and no great expectations). Arab Sheiks and Russian's who have more money than sense, haven't taken our game away from us; they've simply made it unaffordable to the likes of little Jimmy, Tommy. Arthur and old Sid, names you would have found in any crowd once upon a time. I'm still the kid with a shilling in his pocket, happy to be going to Highbury with my folks to 'enjoy' our team Arsenal.! And you cant buy those memories. Something we never needed a spreadsheet to enjoy...as for The Emirates, it has no soul; they should have moved The North Bank over there, and left the moaners at The Clock End, where they belonged....
