Its good being an optimist, I rarely expect any thing terrible to happen in my life – to me, to the people I love, to the world around me. I wake up each morning hoping the sky will be blue and the sun will shine. Every now and then theres a conspiracy that unfolds to unnerve me and make me take off my rose-coloured spectacles and peer properly at whats going on around me.
Yesterday I felt it would be very nice if Arsene Wenger came out and said what he had in his mind about all this transfer talk involving Real Madrid and himself – I didn’t expect him to but I felt in would be the honourable thing to do. The assumption is that with lots of money Arsene Wenger would be able to win the much desired Champions League trophy with Real Madrid. What team do we know that have lots of money and ply their trade not too far from us? Chelsea. Were Chelsea in the semi-finals of the Champions League? Yes they were. Are they in the Final? No, they aren’t. The money is no guarantee and I believe that Arsene Wenger firmly believes that.
Whatever Real Madrid offer him it can’t compare to the history and the legacy he has created at Arsenal. He loves that as much as he loves his vision of football that we Arsenal supporters have been so so lucky to be able to call our own for the past thirteen years.
I have questioned plenty of his decisions this season but I can’t question his desire to build a successful Arsenal team that will go on to win silverware for many years to come. He loves Arsenal as much as I do and thats very important to me.
Not much to debate there but the hacks are giving us plenty of rubbish to chew over so I’m certain we won’t be running out of things to say.
