Welcome to the GunnersoreArse blog. Being blogged 918.74 kilometers (in a straight line) from the Emirates Stadium.
The GunnersoreArse Management and editorial team would like to take this opportunity to wish all our readers a very Merry Christmas. Just over six months ago, on the 26th May 2014, the first ever post went up. Over 40 posts later and still going….. over 30,000 hits and nearly 5000 comments, although most of the comments have been pictures of naked women………. or jokes from GN5 🙂
I had no idea how the blog would develop or even if it would continue, but it has and so far it’s been a great journey. It’s never been too serious or pretentious, mixing football chat with other topics and along the way some extremely amusing banter. The blog has accumulated a few regular and dedicated bloggers plus readers from all over the world. When I started the blog it was pre-season and none of us knew how the season would develop, I had high hopes due to how we had dominated the top of the Premiership last season before falling away to finish fourth. With our transfer business in buying Sanchez, Debuchy, Welbeck and Chambers, the future looked very exciting.
However, things don’t always go as expected and the season has been a somewhat up and down affair so far. Injuries are still the greatest area of concern and at present, don’t seem to be improving, despite us now having a new fitness guru.
Anyway, my letter to Santa was short and sweet, Champions League Trophy for my Arsenal please Mr Claus, that’s all I ask. But if you could throw in a couple of young, sexy, gorgeous and willing women to keep me going in 2015, then I won’t complain.
As we approach the busy Christmas period, we are precariously hanging in there in 7th place, five points off 4th place and 13 points from the top. Our invincible record is safe and we are through to the last 16 in the Champions League with what many are thinking should be an easy tie against Monaco. The quarter final could well be a possibility and with out Premier League campaign looking rather bleak, perhaps Monsieur Wenger will concentrate on the European competition, the one trophy that has so far eluded the Frenchman.
So here’s a very Merry Christmas to all the Sore Arses around the world who read and comment on this blog:
