Diary of a Gooner: Thursday – August 1st, 2013

Wenger out versus Wenger In. Protests against Wenger versus rants against the protests (against Wenger). Frustrated versus hopeful. Gooners were divided today, big shock. However, when it came to former Gunner Sansom Gooners got together as a family.

Today’s hottest topics? Suárez, Bendtner and Bernard.

Suárez, yes him again. Story today: Arsenal’s bid (40m+1) was an agreement between Arsenal and Suárez’s agent, to test out the clause in his contract. Gooners didn’t take it too seriously, the newspaper reporting it, has proven numerous of times not to be trustworthy and besides the usual No/Yes argument about Suárez, most Gooners let it go.

Nicky B then, I mean Noble by Bendtner, I mean… Wait what’s his real name again… Ah well… You know who I mean. Anyway, rumour has it Dutch Eredivisie team FC Twente are interested! This could mean, maybe/hopefully/please, that he’s on his way out. Of course even if Arsenal and Twente agree terms, Mr ‘Noble’ will probably find something he doesn’t like at Twente… Well, at least someone else’s interested! I think 99% of Gooners feel the same way as I do about this.

Another interesting rumour, this time about Bernard. Apparently Arsenal told his former club that we would bid, but we backed out. Gooners lost their minds, hang on, no, just the Wenger Out Brigade. The others were a bit devastated but still believe the club knows what it’s doing.

A completely different story. Twitter exploded today when the Wenger Out Brigade came up with protests ideas. These ideas included: stalking Wenger’s favourite restaurant(s), a protest march, a boycott and the best (read: worst) idea of all: Wenger Out chants at the Emirates Cup and every home game Arsenal plays, because that’ll do our players on the pitch a lot of good… Oh wait… As you may be able to tell by my reaction I think these Wenger Out Brigade guys/girls are taking it way too far. Obviously everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but when you want to organise these events, as a Gooner, you might want to keep in mind that whatever you do should NOT harm our players in any way. Of course not everyone who thinks Wenger should leave supported this idea, the ones who did just took over twitter.

Gooners quickly got together again after hearing the awful news that Arsenal and England legend Kenny Sansom was currently homeless and suffering from alcoholism. (Go follow @GetSansomSober and get involved)

In other news, Arsenal Ladies club captain Kelly Smith has been appointed as player-coach. – The new Away Kit is in stores now. – Youngster Isaac Hayden is prepared and ready to go on loan this season to gain first team experience.
