Emirates bound

Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Busker Brian

I was walking down the street today, listening to a busker singing this refrain to the tune of Homeward Bound by Simon and Garfunkel.

He moved me to tears

His name was Busker Brian

I was sittin’ in the Highbury station
Gettin’ closer to  my destination
I’ve a ticket for the clock end stand
My programme and scarf in hand
And every stops been neatly planned
For a Gooner I’m in wonderland
Emirates bound
I wish I was
Emirates bound
The Grove where my hearts escaping
The Grove, where my team is playing
The Grove, where my love lies waiting
Silently calling

Everyday’s been an endless stream
Of negative blogs and talk obscene
And each clown looks the same to me
The complaints and negativity
And every troller’s face I see
Reminds me that I long to be
Emirates bound
I wish I was
Emirates bound
The Grove where I am praying
The Grove, where my team is playing
The Grove, where my soul lies aching
Silently calling

Tonight I’ll sing my songs again
They’ll play the game and contend
But hopes and dreams come back to me
Of Wengerball and fantasy
Like victory through harmony
I need a win to comfort me

Title bound
I wish I was
Title bound
The Grove, where my doubts escaping

The Grove, where my team is playing
The Grove, where the trophy’s waiting
Silently for me
Silently for me
Silently for me

    Negative blogs, trollers? I don’t think so. Where was this busker Brian playing? Was it ‘the’ Busker Brian? http://www.buskerbrian.com/

    No busker was singing this, you made it up yourself, or did you stand in the street and dictate as he sung?

    Not bad tbh but why so shy of your own hand?

    It’s a small world. When you click on the link from DI McNasty and come on the webpage of buskerbrian you see a picture of him sitting on the “Groen Platz” which is in fact called “Groenplaats” in Dutch. And the Groenplaats is somewhat the centre of the city of Antwerp. And Antwerp(en) is my home town.
    If you click on the picture you get to see a lot of pictures of Antwerpen in the clip. That was a nice trip. And as I have been much around in Antwerp in those days and listened to the street musicians, watching the street artist.. I think I should have seen and heard him…

    thanks for the link

  • walter

    And a big thanks to our own Brian for his lovely version of Homeward Bound. Not the original busker Brian but certainly an original Brian. 😉

  • In the goalmouth stands Almunia, and a disgrace to his trade, and he carries the reminders of every shot that laid him down and cut him till he cried out, in his anger and his shame, “I am leaving! I am leaving!” But the goal-clown still remains. Hmm hmm hmm…

  • RedGooner

    @Uncle Mike, lmao ……. Theres a chant for the Emirates 😛
    Best NOT till the seasons over we need him right now 🙂

    If we win the league though he will probably be a god and all will be forgotten ..we are a fickle lot us supporters.

  • DogFace

    Can you imagine… it’s the last game of the season and we need 3 points to win the title – we are at shit hole (coz in my imagination the scum game got delayed until then and they need 1 points for a CL place) – it’s 0-1 and in injury time when suddenly Mike Dean gives the scum a peno for a Defoe dive!

    …Almunia steps up as does Defoe (still wearing his now tatty 100 EPL goals tee under his kit)…

    What happens next? One player is forever a hero while the other is forever the damned?

    It’s true, we really are that fickle RedGooner!

  • Aussie Jack

    Any one who pays two thousand five hundred pounds for a ticket is entitled to dream and dream and dream. They used to say dreams are cheap, but not at Arsenal.
    Maybe a refund scheme would encourage Wenger to spend a little.say one thousand pound rebate is they comeup empty handed?

  • DogFace

    @Aussie Jack = Whaah whaaah, I want a trophy, whaaaaaah!!! Buy me a trophy Wenger WHAAAHAHAAAAAghh!!

    grow up ffs

  • Aussie Jack

    Hey Dogface lay off the pot. I`ve done my growing up now it`s your turn.

    Where are the usual posters today ?Or is everyone performing their version of the “Sound of silence “? If so then the silence is truly deafening !

  • WalterBroeckx

    Brickfield, I think I have chased them away when I was singing Emirates bound a bit loud… 🙂

  • Shard

    Who’s that with the awesome song? The one that draws us all to this site? It’s the pied piper of Untold. The melodiously musical maestro, the wonderful Walter of the Bronx 🙂

  • La Shiz

    You do paint quite the picture DogFace. Defoe v/s Almunia. Stranger things have happened in football, but that would really be something to watch, if I don’t have a massive stroke, that is.

    To the tune of Scarborough Fair:

    Are you goin’ to Ashburton Grove? Wilshere, Nasri, Ramsey, and Cesc.
    Remember me to one who goes there, she once was a true love of mine.

    Tell her to make me a home shirt (On the north bank in the deep ruby red).
    Wojciech, Song, Van Persie, and Theo (passing the ball on snow-crested ground).
    Without no seams nor needlework (Scoring the goal that was not disallowed).
    Then she’ll be a true love of mine (Sleeps unaware of the offside call).

    Tell her to find me an acre of land (On the side of N5, with the sprinklers built in).
    Koscielny, Sanga, Vermaelen, and Gibbs (Wash the day down with watery beers).
    Between the simulation and the penalty claim (A referee cleans and polishes his whistle).
    Then she’ll be a true love of mine.
    .
    Tell her to win me a trophy of tin (Hunting for glory in scarlet battalions).
    Rosicky, Bendtner, Chamakh, and Eboue (Wenger must order our players to win).
    And gather it all in a bunch of heather (And buy my the one that Sky calls ‘world class’).
    Then she’ll be a true love of mine.

    Are you goin’ to Ashburton Grove? Denilson, Manuel, Squillaci and Abou.
    Remember me to one who goes there, she once was a true love of mine.
