2013, What was the difference?
December 31st 2013 and Arsene Wenger, Ivan Gazidis and Stan Kroenke are holding their yearly review over a bottle of Pinot.
Arsene: Come on guys, we may not have won a trophy (again), but we have beaten both the Champions League Finalists and we finished 4th (it’s a trophy, non?)
Ivan: We made a profit, I’m happy, but what was the difference, resigning all The Brits? the French contingent? The Spanish Senõrs? the Germans?
Stan: Alright Ivan, really, what have the Germans ever done for us?
Arsene: The style of Mesut Özil
Stan: Oh. Yeah, yeah. They did give us that. Uh, that’s true. Yeah.
Arsene: and the defensive rock called The BFG
Ivan: Oh, yeah and The BFG Stan, remember what the defense used to be like?
Stan: Well, yeah. Obviously the BFG. I mean, the BFG goes without saying, doesn’t he? But apart from Mezut Özil and the BFG, what el…
Arsene: The goals of Aha Poldi
Stan: Alright, apart from the Özil, the BFG and Aha Poldi, What have the Germans ever done for us?
Ivan: Oh shut up and drink some more wine
TheSundayMorningGooner: ich wünsche euch einen guten neuen Jahr
