Sitting at the big kids table

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 9:32 pm

Arsenal were just emphatically beaten by a team that won every trophy possible last year.

Some will criticise the gunners for not winning trophies – a fair expectation given their talent and wage bill.

But Arsenal have won something that teams like Everton and Villa don`t.  They have won the right to sit at the big kids table.  There is something to being at the highest level you can.

The joy that a promoted fan feels is based on this.  They aren`t thinking about how tough the upcoming season is, they are thinking about how they will play against Man U.

Same goes in the ACL – AU and Vic are challenging some of the best in East Asia.  IF they are lucky, they might even get to take on a Rivaldo (as AU did on their fantastic run).
