Arsene Wenger sleeps on his bed and hears his radio say,
“It’s 9 o’ clock already.”
He suddenly wakes from his slumber and screams,
“I thought it was only 8 goals we conceded?!”
He bumps his head somewhere and fails to return to sleep…
If Arsene Wenger didn’t have such a nightmare, I’m pretty sure that one of the fans who made the trip to Old Trafford did.
How would you feel if you brought your 7-year-old son all the way from London to Manchester only for him to witness his team get obliterated in grand style in the hands of the old enemy?
I remember when I laughed so hard when Feyernoord’s 10-0 loss to PSV Eindhoven made them shut down their website temporarily. It was one of the marvels football offered the world last season.
Arsenal visited Old Trafford on Sunday and 10 goals were dished out like hot food on a plate, but Arsenal opened the floodgates to receive eight and they managed to dish out only two to the opponents.
This debacle also brought out the creativity in Arsenal’s enemies and quotes like this surfaced from thin air:
“I’ll 8-2 be an Arsenal fan right now.”
“Gooners, I’ll 8-2 to break it to you guys but its gonna be a long season ahead.”
It even sparked my creative juices:
“Szczesny refused dinner because he already ’8′ at Old Trafford.”
Manchester United resigned Arsenal to the club’s biggest defeat in the 21st century and a lot has been learnt in the aftermath.
