I’m planning to write a proper season summary after the West Brom game, so before I do that I thought it’d be nice to do an introduction to the mentioned summary by writing a poem about Arsenal’s season.
So get a hold of my rhyming skills that pay the bills and give you thrills, innit.
There was a team called Arsenal
I can’t think of anything that rhymes with that so, Arsenal
We went to Malaysia for our pre-season
To be optimistic there was every reason
Then there was the Emirates Cup
But we’ll ignore that because we f*cked up
The season started with a draw against the black & whites
Where Gervinho was sent off for a fight
Then there was a game at Old Trafford
Wait, we played at Old Trafford? I can’t remember what happened
We lost Cesc Fabregas and then Samir Nasri
One went to Barca the other to Lloyds TSB
We signed some players, Arteta, Per, Santos, Yossi & Park
Although I think Chu was only signed for a laugh
We had a bad run, losing quite a few
But we beat Sunderland, and then BOOM!
We beat a lot of teams including Chelsea
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA – a slip by John Terry
A goal for Theo and Santos and a hat-trick for van Persie
That’s why we’re the best team the world has ever seen [!]
Some more games took place, then along came January
Where we signed some old bloke called Thierry
He wasn’t that bad, he scored in his first game
“Song…Henry…Chance, GOAL!”, what a day
Then some more games took place, which we won
Apart from a game in Milan, but we’ll ignore that one
Oh and an FA Cup match against Sunderland on some horrible pitch
Shame about that, but you know what they say; life’s sometimes a bit of a b*tch
We were trailing Tottenham by a massive gap
All of their fans were saying, “mind that”
Then we played Tottenham
We could not lose
Saha and then Adebayor from the spot after Bale dived
But their 2 goals are irrelevant, because WE SCORED FIVE!
Sagna, Robin, Tomáš and then Theo twice
Did I mention that we scored 5?
Well, we did so take that
And then we clawed all those points back
Our run was soon halted after losing to the R’s
But I never, ever lost faith in The Arse
A win against Man City & Wolves, then a Wigan loss
3 draws later, I thought it was gone
“It” being 3rd place
How it’s still here I am amazed
Beat West Brom and we’ll be in the top 3
So come on you Gunners! Yippee!
11 players hold the key to our fate
I simply cannot wait
From a new born to a toddler to a teen to a man
Whatever happens I am forever an Arsenal fan
So thank you for the great moments this season has given
But hey, if you’d like to, can you please start winning?
You’re jealous of my rhyming skills, aren’t you? I know you are, but hey, don’t be. Let’s turn all our hate into hope for Sunday. Let’s all hope that Arsenal beat West Brom because if they don’t I may have to immigrate to a country where no-one knows what football is.
Like America, I mean come on what the hell is Soccer? Anyway, I’m off.
Snoop Dogg needs a ghost writer. Peace.
