The Tottenham response to failure, year after year is to buy, buy again, sell someone, buy a few more, spend £30 million, buy and then buy. Year after year they fail, celebrating widly when their first team beat our kiddies in the diddly widdly cup. That’s what they get, that’s what they win, that’s what they scream about.
For those who have a feeling for the northern part of London, and who feel that buying and buying and buying is the way forward there is just such a club. The Tiny Totts.
Arsenal on the other hand do it differently. True, they don’t win the EPL every year, nor have they won anything for a few years. But they have still won a hell of a lot more than the Totts.
There have been disasters before. Those of us who suffered Manchester Bankrupt 6 Arsenal 1, in a team complete with Henry and the rest, will know that it can at times be awful. But that is not how it continues. No Wenger team has ever suffered an awful defeat and then gone on and suffered another and another.
If this happens – and we lose again and again and play dreadful football, I will of course admit that I am 10000% wrong and that the whole essence of Untold Arsenal – the complete and absolute support of Wenger and his World Wide Scouting policy is wrong, and that ultimately the policy of World Wide Scouting has failed.
But not yet. One result – one bad result – does not mean that he has screwed up totally.
I will be honest, and I will admit it if wrong (which at least distinguishes me from the 8,983,762 football journalists who infest our daily and sunday papers), but for now I think that the Fulham game was a screw up – a combination of events where it all went wrong on one day – nothing more.
I might be the only person saying this, and I might ultimately be proven to be the total moron that you think I am, but I still believe that this is going to be ok. We’ve had sebacks before. I’ll still be there cheering, not booing, at the Euro match.
