What does pineapple vodka, Bendtner loathing, and getting goosed have to do with Arsenal? At George’s Pub, it has a hell of a lot to do with it, but we’re not quite sure what that really means. Either way, the Arsenal remains top of the league.
It seems difficult to come up with a good answer to a number of questions this season. How has our defense become best in the league? How is Aaron Ramsey scoring goals like a striker and passing the ball like Mesut Ozil…to Mesut Ozil? How is Manc Utd in 9th? It’s becoming easier to find examples of why these things are so, but when (effing) Bendtner scores in the 2nd minute from a perfect Carl Jenkinson cross (yes, you’re reading this sentence correctly so far) we have good reason to wonder how our fortunes have improved so much in one season.
Our squad has been so good that Sooner Gooners have actually had to quarrel with each other just to exhaust our usual amount of frustrations. I can tell you there wasn’t enough pineapple vodka being had when that went down. By the way, Corey, go ahead and pour me my next goose. That didn’t come out well, did it?
At least three of the guys, in Tulsa alone, are planning trips across the pond to see the lads. I think that shows the level of excitement for what we’re doing right now. December looks like our toughest run of fixtures yet and, by the time I visit Islington in late December and New Years Day, I think we’ll know whether to get legitimately excited about a title winning season or not. How exciting is that?!
I became an Arsenal fan in 2006 and a true Gooner forever in 2007 (the night Henry headed home in stoppage time v mancU…I knew for sure that night) and Arsenal have yet to win a trophy in that span. As a gooner, not winning a trophy has taught me to love the club no matter what, but I have no idea how to feel about actually winning the league. I want it more than any other competition. The word ‘champions’, for me, means winning the premier league. I often think about what my reaction will be when it finally happens. I’ll probably cry. I can only hope there’s a goose in front of me and you Sooner Gooners at my side.
Everton on Sunday.
