I’ve just had a call from Blacksheep who, for reasons that will not become clear at this point, is currently driving his car in the outer reaches of Scotland.
And he has told me that he has received confirmation from Arsenal that his project to get an Untold Banner up in the Emirates Stadium, has been accepted by the club!
The banner Arsenal have opted to go with is
Football should be an art.
I do appreciate that the Stadium Wenger slogan was the first choice of many readers, but we always felt that might not be agreeable to the club. I still think the slogan we have is very appropriate because we have had the full Arsene Wenger quote at the top of every page on the website for quite a few years now and it is synonymous with what this site is all about.
Here it is, in case you’ve never noticed it.
“I believe the target of anything in life should be to do it so well that it becomes an art.”
With luck we should have it up before the start of the season – and maybe even for the Emirates Cup.
Thanks to everyone who supported this venture, but doubleplus thanks to Blacksheep who came up with the idea and pressed ahead with it despite my initial less than enormous enthusiasm.
I will come back with the begging bowl later, but for now, please don’t start throwing money at me. (I’ve never said that before in my life!) I’ll let you know how we will do this later.
For the moment, let’s just raise a glass of whatever tickles your fancy and celebrate that there will be an Untold Arsenal banner at the Emirates.
- How much have Arsenal’s rivals spent on transfers in recent years?
- Why is it becoming so difficult to find a sponsor for new football stadium?
- Corruption flares up again in Italy, as Premier League figures don’t look too clever
- How much does a club have to spend on transfers to get a trophy?
- Does the team that is top after 14 games usually go on to win the league?
