Picture this. The year is 2017 and the corrupt authorities in charge of The Beautiful Game have managed to wiggle their way around FFP to accommodate the needs and wishes of their new very wealthy football owning chums. Of course these friendships have nothing to do with the Christmas Presents.
Also, you will have noticed that since 2014 Newcastle, Liverpool and Totteringham have also “oiled-up”. The net result of all this is that Cup upsets such as The Wigan did a few years ago have been condemned to history.
Arsenal have been condemned to eternal also rans and simply play each season to avoid relegation, followed by playing beautiful football to entertain the reduced numbers at The Emirates now that the glory hunters have gone.
The new European Super League is in full swing, which admittedly gives us mid weeks off.
A little history now. Arsenal at some point were the wealthiest club in England, and some fans really couldn’t care less who owns the place.
My question is this: suppose we found a good guy with squillions and a deep love of football and Arsenal in particular, would this change our minds?
In other words, is there ever a time when you would consider it ok for Arsenal to Oil Up?
