Today has been a boring day as a writer, nothing, and I mean NOTHING to write about other than 45,981 websites saying Arsenal are close to signing Ribery.
So you an imagine my delight when Vital Arsenal member 'Ozi Gooner' posted this over on our forum:
That small team down the road have provided us with some top-quality laughs over the last few seasons.
Some of the best comedic moments have to have been the crowd and players alike's failure to realize that there late equalizer at WHL had not, in fact, stopped us from winning the title in their backyard and celebrating like it was them who had just won the league; Their classic excuse last season when finally after years of inferiority they appeared to be going to steal our annual spot in the top 4; and this seasons addition to the Sp*rs comedy collection, the WHL crowd, once again (when will they learn), getting ahead of themselves and starting that most intelligent of chants '2-nil to the Eng-er-land', before watching there team again cave under pressure to the Arsenal in the CC semi-final. And although it was a while ago now lets not forget the theft of their one time idol, Sol 'Judas' Campbell.
In recent seasons a new dimension to their inferiority complex has emerged, which can only be described as sadomasochistic and has provided me and most likely many of you with some great laughs every time the silly season comes around again. This new characteristic to our rivalry with our poor and unfortunate neighbors hilariously involves every player they target or sign saying one of two things that you just cant help cracking a smile about.
The first thing being the player in question either refusing to join such a small club, ala Robinho and Baptista, or saying they would not like to join to big a club just yet as Sp*rs would be their stepping stone to bigger things, ala Kaboul.
The second thing the players they sign or target seem to say time and time again, almost without fail these days, is that they themselves are gooners - and I mean what better way to endear yourself to a bunch of Sp*rs fans ey? In the past 2 years alone, Micah Richards, Younas Kaboul, Giles Barnes, Darren Bent, Gareth Bale and Pascal Chimbonda have all either confessed to being Gooners or turned them down because of their Goonerism - and we all know about Jermain Defoe.
So what I'm wondering is to save themselves further embarrassment and humiliation should Jol, Comoli and Levy introduce a new rule where any targets agent must be contacted to find out what club he supported as a child? Or do they just like the pain?
