As we get ready to adjourn the Premiership season for a month to accommodate an ill-advised World Cup, who amongst us thought Arsenal would be in pole position? We’ve had a fun ride so far and if Arsenal do the business against Wolves Saturday, we’ll stay top of the table until our Boxing Day match against West Ham.
A ton of work still to be done, but it’s been exciting thus far. We’ve enjoyed a great spirit during match-viewings at Maggie McGarry’s. Attendance has been up and down, though we still managed to get 30-40 Gooners in for a 4am match against Chelsea last Sunday.
We will accept no excuses this Saturday as kickoff is an absurdly late 11:45am. And it being our last match for a bit, expect we will get a crowd.
Hoping when we return in December, we’ll have new BAG t-shirts available for purchase, so stay tuned. We will also hold a charity raffle for a worthy cause, exact date TBD.
I’m sitting out the World Cup, but Maggie’s will be showing a full complement of matches, so expect many Gooners will watch there. My only real hope for the tournament is that any Arsenal players involved, do not pick up significant knocks.
Look forward to seeing everyone Saturday. Please remember, while outside food is okay at the pub, no outside drinks are allowed. Also, dogs only in the parklets.
See you at the pub!
