There is FURY on the website messageboards…
‘WONDER OF YOU R U AVIN A LAUGH!’
I really have to say that the thought of that song entering the musical lexicon again really fills me with sadness.
Where has that idea come from?
Wasn’t it Ivan Gazidis that brought that song back?
It’s awful. Utter shite. Doesn’t get anyone excited. I swear, every time it came on, people bitched and moaned about its existence. The song reminds me of Denilson falling on his face, not something I want to be reminded of.
I grew up with ENTERTAIN YOU by the magnificent Robbie Williams. Great build, electric, sung by one of the great
pop ROCK stars of my childhood. I genuinely lost my mind listening to that song before it came on at Highbury.
I was a kid so don’t judge the taste levels… actually, fuck it, you can’t be too cool for this song, it’s a great track. I won’t have anyone deny me. You can still like Beach House and appreciate Robbie.
Another classic Arsenal tune we could revisit is Fatboy Slim, Right Here, Right Now. I still get Arsenal chills when I hear that song, a bit edgier, everyone knows it, there’s even a hint of Ian Wright in it.
Wonder of You? I don’t care about its history. I don’t care that it’s a classic. I don’t care that your grandad knocked up your grandma to it. It’s a shite song and has absolutely no place at the club.
We could roll with something a little more contemporary? Foals – Providence is a great track.
I know Kasabian are Leicester fans, but come on, Underdog? SYMBOLIC.
You know you’d be pissing in your plastic cup and lobbing it at Steve Bruce if this came on… because that is how we enjoy gigs in London. I told American’s that what happens and they refused to believe me.
Which tune would YOU want to hear?
Mesut Ozil rumours reached the Washington Post… I was quite excited to hear what they had on offer, sadly, all pointers indicate to a deal being for next summer. Probably better for our squad if I’m honest. I’m not sure we can lose too many more players without taking on massive risk to our experience balance. Still, at least they’re making moves for next year.
Chelsea lost in the Super Cup on penalties, but again looked far better than the result suggested. Frank Lampard has had a tough start, he’s going to have to hope he has strong motivational skills otherwise he’s going to have problems this season. Jury still out, but Kante is an absolute powerhouse, he’ll always be worth 10 points a season.
I was having a debate with some grown adults trying to convince me that mobile phones in grounds when the games are going on is acceptable. ‘It’s a Generational thing’ apparently like mobile communications devices started last year.
Can’t have it.
They’re a blight on gigs, the cinema, stand-up shows, dinner dates, funerals, after-sex-chat, and it’s simply bad manners. You’d be lying to yourself if you think it’s just the young, if anything, this behaviour is just as prevalent in older folk. Tommy Robinson can’t even go to court without filming himself and he’s 36.
Here is Donald Glover, one of the hottest contemporary artists on the planet (I know some of you needed that), making a great point.
“I think telling people to put their phones away really forces a person to be present.”
Amen Donald, spoken like a true pro. We could all do with a little less phone time in our lives because it’s a sad indictment of humans when there’s a market for addressing the problem.
I like the generation that the ASHBURTON ARMY (@ArsenalChants) is from, the average age there is probably sub 23. Their Twitter page is starting a fan movement to make loads of noise at the home games. They look like they have a lot of fun, they make up great songs, and they’re getting a fucking drum.
Finally, new Lacazette song.
This Alexandre Lacazette song is incredible 🔥 pic.twitter.com/vJnJRumE8Q
