The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Sunday 6th May
Arsenal 1 -Burnley 2
Burnley take over final Europa League spot, leaving Wenger’s EPL European destiny out of his control.
“I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.”
AFTV rock up at The Emirates and demand that they take over the running of the club
Sunday 14th May
Burnley 1 – Bournemouth 0
Huddersfield 0 – Arsenal 4
Despite the Gunners best efforts, Burnley get the win they need to take 6th and Wenger’s future European adventures possibilities are down to two.
“Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword.”
The 20,000 season ticket holders, who have boycotted the club for the past 2 months, storm The Emirates, rip up their seats and rage war on any poor unsuspecting security guard they can find”
Saturday 19th May
Southampton 3 – Man United 1
Southampton surprisingly win the FA Cup and take the remaining Europa League spot.
“There before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, ‘A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!’”
Having watched the game on the big screen at a pub around the corner from the stadium, Usmanov and his supporters rampage their way through the ground, ripping up the statues and pillaging the club level bars and restaurants.
Wednesday 16th May
Arsenal 0 – Red Bull Salzburg 0
Salzburg win 5-4 on penalties.
JW10 misses the fifth penalty and Arsenal’s European frequent flyers points are cancelled for 2018/19 and for the foreseeable future.
“I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.”
All hell breaks loose. Any fan who couldn’t get a ticket for Lyon (and there were a lot of them), rounds up the entire Arsenal board members and staff and their live sacrifices are broadcast on AFTV.
Well that is one possibility, anyway.
