Gunner Minions (Part-1)

Photoshop was one of my favourite activity, its been ages since I've done something on that. Here is a small edit First let me thank @saber_gooner  for the base image, I've flicked it though. I am sure the fellow Gooner will be kind enough to grant me permission.

Started with the easiest More to come!

Our Running Man

What attracts me to Arsenal, and what hold my faith in them stronger every time even after series of disappointments is the class they go about it, the class with which they got a manager dubbed "Arsene Who" to the only manager with undoubtedly the most unique achievement in the modern day football.

You can win it a hundred times, but, to with it once with total conviction is something amazing. 

Speaking of class, it oozes in every aspect that links Arsenal. Be it the way they deal with fans, finances, players, charities and events. Such class only attracts class, yes, the fans. One thing that keeps me going- the Gooners.

One such event- "the running man" showed us what Arsenal Fans are made of. During the Arsenal's trip to Hanoi, Vietnam during the pre-season, a fan ran along the player's bus for around FIVE KILOMETRES, bumping into trees and lamp posts, yet not stopping till achieving a rare rendezvous with the team.

No dream to big
The thirst with the destiny
He's efforts were appreciated by the team, with the team singing "sign him up", for the man's efforts and was allowed to board the bus, with a standing ovation from the team he gives standing ovation to week-in and week-out. Truly a delight for any fan. And a gesture of class, unmatchable.

Reload the Guns

I have been off for a long time, long long time. Its been more than a year. A poor start to last season, personal and professional life crisis and various other reasons. It feels great to be back and the smell of positivity from all around motivates me further.

This is the first time, in a long long time that transfer window is filled with positivity, I am not talking about us being linked with the Higuains, the Rooneys, the Fabregases or the Barrys. I am talking about the fact that for the first time in last 4-5 years that we, the Gooners, are not scared of loosing out on a key member from the starting 11. And, the fact that we have started adding member to strengthen squad makes the aura of positivity smell better.

And for all those who think of us adding to the squad the big names, please analyse, Arsene Wenger has managed to get stability to our overall fee structure compromising on a lot of things, call it trophies to begin with. He's taken undeserved criticism, and from people who don't deserve, and the cristicism his caliber doesn't deserve. He got stability to fee structure compromising and losing his dearest sons, read Henry and Fabregas, and a few who don't deserve a mention.

Forget about the really big names coming in, remember, "we don't buy stars, we create them".

And, lets put our hands together for the new signing Yaya Sanogo. The next Henry, lets see, I give a realistic 3 years target.

Lot more to come. Hoping for  a positive season.
