Before you read on, VCC wanted to include the following track in the post so please right click Gooner Day to open in a new window and listen – unless you’re being naughty at work that is 🙂
Its 3 pm Saturday 10th September 2011. We welcome Swansea City to the Emirates for our second home fixture. Is this going to be a Gooner Day?
Well fellow Gooners, is this the trickiest start to a season in our lifetime?
It comes following an away draw against a mid table side, a home defeat against a top 6 side that has been resurrected and a simply humiliating experience away to maybe our biggest enemy.
Has Arsène recruited the necessary armoury to sustain a top four place, enabling our continued Champions League status?
Will Mertesacker/Santos plug the gap in our frail defence?
Will Arteta/Benayoun be creative in our new mid field?
And….will Gervinho/Young provide the firepower we need to assist our top goalscorer?
Many questions yet to be answered. If these players do not hit the ground running and turn our start around to winning ways, will we see the unthought-of resignation of our beloved Arsène Wenger?
The speculation in some Sunday papers is that Mr.Wenger is disillusioned with the Arsenal Board and is/maybe contemplating calling it a day. Can we even contemplate life after Le Prof?
After a frustrating, long and stressful close season, have we acquired the quality/necessary personnel capable to compete with the big boys, still?
I, for one, feel uneasy at the thought of life after “He Who Knows”. If he has been unable to win any silverware for six years, then who could have?
I for one, believe it’s going to be a “GOONER DAY”
