I went to buy some crisps from the corner shop and a reasonably well-to-do gentleman and his polite looking wife asked me for directions. He was very upset and somehow we started talking about tonight’s football match.
They travelled all the way from Hong Kong so he could catch two (2) Chelsea matches this week.
He was livid.
Tonight’s final score was 0-0 (Chelsea v. Man City)
He blames it all on Arsenal.
Why/how?! Interesting flawed logic that is…
He spent 10 mins explaining to me about how he used to be a loyal arsenal supporter, and Arsenal coach “Wenger ruined everything.”:
- Wenger is cheap.
- Wenger is French.
- Wenger only cares about making money.
- Essentially the management sucks.
- Wenger would only invest 2 mil when the keeper asked for 5 mil.
- Wenger only spends as little as possible.
He wrote to Wenger direct with his complaints, which were ignored, and as a result he abandoned arsenal and ran to support Chelsea, a team that spends lots and lots of dosh on keepers! And he now regrets having to jump ship all because of.. you guessed it, Wenger.
I asked him to forward his abusive email to Wenger, and he did (see below).
Pay attention to the hilarious subject line: Wenger – What are you doing
Surely any true Chelsea fan knows to blame Torres?!
