Its All About Arsenal

I used to despise football when I was kid. It was almost on par with being forced to watch the news when all I wanted to watch was cartoons. It was so boring and... green. 

I'm not sure what changed, as I wasn't that much older when I decided to start supporting Arsenal. I must have been 6 or 7, watching some Champions League game with my Grandad. He's the kind of guy who can watch the most obscure teams play.. and have an opinion, actually care. He was in love with the beauty of exquisite playing. Me on the other hand, I was more taken with the fact that they were playing in red shirts (my favourite colour at the time you see). And even better than that, their name began with 'A'... and so did mine! There was no other reason I could fathom. For those reasons alone, I was convinced I was destined to support them! Despite living in the North of England, perilously close to the area of Manchester, I committed myself to them. 

If I'm honest I'm surprised I managed to keep up with it all. I'm the type of person whose life is just one fad after the other. Granted, sometimes my enthusiasm has dipped.. but I'll always be an Arsenal fan. 

Eh, I even had a lifesize cardboard cut out of Freddie Ljungberg at one point. But that's another story altogether I think! :D
