'Arsenal Till I Die'

'Arsenal Till I Die'

As the 300 or so Gooners packed into the Gunners pub were stunned into silence, as the referee's whistle signaled the passing of the European crown from Merseyside to Barcelona, two lone Gunners opened up their vocal chords as a mark of respect to the battling performance delivered by a 10 man Arsenal.

The majority of fans remained shocked into silence or quickly left at the final whistle & understandably so, I mean who needs camera's flashing in your face after witnessing such a heartbreaking defeat?

However, two Gooners found it within themselves to roar one final song for the boys.

'ARSENAL TILL I DIE' came from deep within their souls. Consumed with pride & filled with tears the pair sang on. The singing progressed into screaming, wanting everyone to know they are Gooners and proud.

The great thing about football is the unity & solidarity it brings in victory or defeat, the togetherness the pair found in the face of obsurdity is something unique to the football fan.

The strange thing is, I'd never met the gut before, I never asked his name & he never asked mine. The fact that I found solace in a complete stranger is exactly why it's great to be a gooner & the Arsenal family will live for evermore.

I will never forget the night I stood hand in hand with a brother I'd never met and declared that I would follow my beloved Arsenal till I ceased to be.

If, by some chance in a million, my anonymous new friend reads my two-bit articles on Vital-Arsenal, then I urge you to get in touch, because I'd love to buy you a pint.

'ARSENAL TILL I DIE'







PS, I'd just like to point out that if there were other Gooners singing at full time then I apologise, I was in a world of my own and only saw what was infront of me. Cheers
