I was talking to my b-in-law on this yesterday afternoon. Amongst 3 points of Peroni at my mate’s pub then a bottle of red with a wonderful dinner at home.
Anyway, I said to him that arse looked shit against the mancs, and that they have a wonderful stadium (albeit quiet) and some healthy accounts. I then asked him if the first part of the sentence acceptable as the 2nd and 3rd parts are what the arse fans are boasting about.
He agreed that we wouldn’t want to swap our last 7 years with arse’s last 7 years, despite Roman sticking a few quid in and Chelsea being subsidised. I pointed out that not one of the arse first team would get into Chelsea’s 2nd team. He agreed.
My brother-in-law uses a front row season tkt that I sorted for him. He has a wonderful view of the game. Our stadium isn’t a brownfield site creation that cost £300m (or whatever emirates cost) – but it does the trick. My view is also good from the back row of the MHU. Our stadium is fine. Our trophy cabinet is doing ok of late, as well.
We’ll stick with that.
Arse can stick with their emirates and empty trophy cabinet. Arse fans can keep their fingers crossed for the League Cup this season – it looks like it could be arse’s, after that ref’s timekeeping at reading the other night. Luck could be with arse. fantastic, for them. They must be pleased.
