TO BE, OR, NOT TO BE, that is the Arsenal Question
Blood and Guts AngloSaxon Football
or Waify and Delicate Continental Football
Caution you are about to enter troll country
To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? ...
We now standby for a brief
Public Service Anouncement from...
The Ministry of Truth
The President Troll is ending operations in Afgansistatroll
Will it mean that ISISmaug will take over there, too?!
Hear ye Hear ye from the General Troll in command, on 60 EONS
tick tick tick
He gazed up at the enormous face.
Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of
smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache
O cruel, needless misunderstanding!
O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast!
Two gin-scented tears trickled
down the sides of his nose.
But it was all right
everything was all right
the struggle was finished.
He had won the victory over himself.
He loved Big Brother.
Now as we enter troll country, we survey how best
to overthrow the evil ides pronounced upon the great Arsenal.
Now if you can't beat the devil join him as they say,
and there maybe some truth in this.
But you have to be a new age Moses
Away with the supernatural
Portray God as a petulant child
Leave your wife, your kids, and your rod behind
you know the drill...
be ye holy
So we now enter the world of Mergers and Aquisition, M&A's as they say.
As Above so Below.
Arsenal will now become what we feared.
Too big to Fail.
Finance (above) and Football (below)
There all fixed.
Arsenal cannot buy good talent due to other Football giants.
Advantage Arsenal their owner is an M&A maven
Arsenal becomes a trend setter
The owner bribes sorry wrong word,
"lobbies" PTB'rs in 10 Downing St to change BPL by laws concerning
M&A's, where Premier League teams could merge with other Premier League teams.
Wenger rubs his hands in glee
no more hand wringing
Now the thesis is this:
Arsenal needs 2 teams to compete domestically and continentally.
One team in the Anglo-Saxon role
and the other in the Continental role
2 armies in essence.
Now since Arsenal has a long standing relationship with Southhampton.
They would be bought out by Arsenal
Arsenal would get all their current talent
There would be competition at every position on the field
Southhampton would maintain their independence but be a subsidiary of Arsenal
What's in it for Southhampton?
They get the finances, sponsors, advertising etc of Arsenal
A new stadium maybe
They would be a proving ground for both Arsenal and Southhampton youth products.
You may now leave Troll dreamland
Thanks for visiting
"Since maids, in modesty, say 'no' to that
Which they would have the profferer construe 'ay.'"
Oh and what about Wenger and Koeman?!
Wenger "Chief Priest of the Emirates" or the Director of Operations
Koeman Ceo and Coach
Brilliant brilliant Alekhine
