FarSideView – That’s when we all win
This week’s edition of The
FarSideView is a bit of a mash up and a bit of a muddle. Please accept my
apologies in advance.
partly a piece I started a couple of weeks ago (and never really got around to
finishing) and partly inspired by a three-word Tweet last Thursday.
Firstly: The Championship Manager Generation
Manager season is in full flow and this summer season seems to be the best yet.
is a great media for speaking shite with other Gooners globally, any time, day
it I wouldn’t be blogging.
it I wouldn’t have meet my fellow Australian Gooners.
Twitter is also the curse of ‘The Championship Manager Generation’. The
sub-class who, after a three-day session of FIFA 13, jump on Twitter,
list players they’ve just signed to win the quadruple in their first season and
blast the board and Arsene Wenger for not following their lead. They have got
to get their heads out of their arses and be a bit more realistic.
the fantasy football world, signing players is simple.
1. Identify a need.
2. Identify a player.
3. Place a bid.
4. Player signs.
5. Arsenal win the Champions League,
the league, the Super Cup…
the real world, it’s more complicated.
• What if the player doesn’t want to
• What if the club don’t want to
• What if the price the selling club
want it’s just ridiculous? and with all knowing about the ‘War Chest’, prices
can’t force players and clubs to do your bidding…
as frustrated as anyone by the lack of signings and yes, I’m sure we could of
approached this all differently, but we are, where we are.
happens if we can’t sign anyone in the next week?
the point in bitching and moaning from your tablet and booing from your seat
for the next four months, it won’t help.
the team, it could be all we’ve got.
also read of ‘supposed’ Gooners wanting Arsenal to keep losing, to ‘Prove their
quite frankly, FCUK OFF.
true Gooner would ever want The Arsenal to lose.
are not welcome!
on the bus back to Middlesex and sod off where you belong, sitting on Dante’s
basement level 9.
all want top players, but sorry, not at the cost of Arsenal!
Secondly: A three-word Tweet
really, the press hate us, fans hate us, managers hate us, well, pretty much
everyone hates, we know that and we don’t care.
summed it up last weekend, when responding to the rabid hacks in the post-match
got what you wanted, you should be happy. Before the start the season that was
all you write in the papers so what do you expect?”
last two results won’t change their view, just give them an excuse to find
something else to beat Arsene and Arsenal with.
Chad Kroeger (sorry, I know Nickleback) said;
must stand together
no giving in
in hand forever
when we all win
that’s, that’s when we all win
that’s, that’s when we all win”
That’s when we all win
