I’m 27 so it’s not really that different, me and GG are clearly of the same generation and have both only ever really known Arsenal under Wenger (though my first ever trip to Highbury was pre Wenger). The difference is that I’m not as ardent a Wenger supporter, so I don’t make statements denigrating what went before in order to aggrandise what Wenger has done. Becase you don’t need to say that Arsenal weren’t a big club before Wenger in order to talk up his achievements, because they can be praised and respected without drawing comparisons to the achievements of other managers. What Wenger did was fucking legendary.
As I’ve sad a couple times now, GG made good points and now she has backed down somewhat from saying we weren’t a big club, there’s nothing for me to really disagree with.
Yes I can deny that we had clubs like Newcastle for company, because it’s bullshit lol. They last won the league in 1927 and the FA Cup in 1955, we haven’t been in their company since the 20s lol. Yeah they came 2nd a couple of times in the 90s around the time Wenger joined, that doesn’t make them as big a club as us.
