After a week or so's holiday from editing the Vital Arsenal site for such duties as preparing for the impending (ok not till June but it feels like it's real soon) birth of our (the wife and I) first child and decorating the house, I return at a time when life is not as rosy as it could have been for we Gooners.
Indeed the exit from 3 different competitions in 10 days has brought the fans of the London Lotto's and those ever optimistic Spuddies to our site in their droves, and can we blame them?
Let's face facts, as seasons go, this one has been one hell of a disappointment, indeed this could well be the first season since the arrival of Arsene Wenger that we have had nothing to look forward to at the end of the season.
Since 2000 we have had either a final, semi final or League Champions trophy to look forward to come the close of the campaign. Yet even though we have already played in one final this season, the defeat to PSV means our season is over. Some people may tell you that there is still a Champions League position up for grabs but I can assure you that our place in next season competition is all but confirmed. 1 point behind Liverpool with 2 games in hand and 5 in front of the orcs with also two more to play (including Bolton) pretty much assures us of a place.
In comparison to our own, the history of Tottenham and Chelsea is almost non-existent, their trophy room a mere cupboard to our jumbo sized dining room.
It is our illustrious history that brings these cretins to our cyber-home, jealousy and the fact that every loss gives them a rare opportunity to 'give it large' to fans who have had the monopoly on the bragging rights for longer than most fans have been alive.
Arsenal football club has been at the pinnacle of English football for many a year and are the third most decorated club in English football history, and as such have had much more opportunities than other fans to stick it to their rivals.
The future of our club looks like we will bounce back from this current flunk we appear to be in, but in all honesty that is pure speculation, however the facts regarding the football clubs of Arsenal, Chelsea & Tottenham are not. Could I be this big of an arrogant arsehole if I weren't dealing with the truth?
At the end of the day, each and every true member of Vital Arsenal can rest easy in his bed in the knowledge that every Chelsea or Tottenham fan who posts he vile and cretinous (and on the odd occasion well constructed) comments on our beloved site they do so with jealousy and hatred of our success in their hearts.
Our season may have finished, but as Graeme Souness (surprisingly) claimed after our knock out defeat (draw) if you are an Arsenal fan you should be disappointed, but not worried.
