I know this isn’t 4Chan. Or 9Gag. Or ebaumsworld. But posting these pics on those sites would go down like a lead balloon. So I’m posting them here, in the hope that they inspire you to put Coq in his rightful (elevated/superior) place.
I’ve included the transparent Coq cutout at the bottom of this post so that you can easily make your own.
Oh – and every good meme needs a suitable hashtag. Any suggestions? Add them in the comments below or tweet them to @Gunnerstown or @invinciblog.
Download the transparent PNG cutout above and add it to your own images… Knock yourselves out. 🙂
Here’re two images submitted by @sirsmillie. (Thanks!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻)
I was eleven-and-a-half. My family had just emigrated from Rhodesia to South Africa. All the kids on my street supported United or Liverpool, because of their Southern African goalkeeper connections: Bailey for United and Grobbelaar for ‘Pool. Problem was: I didn’t like the colour red – so when FA Cup Final day came around in 1979, I supported the team in yellow, even though their name sounded like “Asshole”. At the final whistle, I had bragging rights and a team that had won my heart.
Then I discovered that the Gunners also wore red. Luckily, I remained loyal, and the Arsenal has kicked my heart around ever since… (apart from a few lost years in the ’90s and early ’00s, when I was busy doing grownup things as a composer in Hollywood).
Abandoned invinciblog.com to launch this site with 1 Nil Down 2 One Up blogfather Dave Seager – and we have used this platform to help launch the writing careers of a number of amazing Arsenal bloggers.
