Ummm ok. The title might just be exaggerating things a bit, but I really wish DelhiGunner doesn’t die again. It was a long long time back when this blog was started (in my 11th standard I guess). The passion grew exponentially for some months, only to come to a stand still due to reasons unknown. Maybe I just wasn’t prepared to give up on my JEE studies I guess back during that time. Exactly I don’t remember.
So the question. Why now? The World Cup is on and most of this blog’s followers are in all probability busy watching Suarez in his country’s shirt. Well to be completely honest, I don’t think it matters. This blog is not written with the purpose of getting many views. The sole reason is to hopefully add some flavor to my otherwise mundane life it has become.
I’d also like to mention Raghav’s name here, who recently started following this blog. As the notification popped in my mailbox, I was all of a sudden reminded of this blog. Yes. I’d forgotten. I felt a sudden urge to write. Unfortunately, it soon died. The same urge summoned upon me tonight and I hope this post will help it survive a tab bit longer.
Now coming to the topic this blog is concerned about, that is Arsenal Football Club. The first thing that comes to my mind, and I’m sure many other Gooners’ mind, at this moment of time is Cesc Fabregas’ transfer to rivals Chelsea. Unlike many, I was completely satisfied with the deal. I wouldn’t want to dwell upon the exhaustive reasons, some of which include the player funding a part of the fee from his own pocket to get away from Arsenal. And of course the most logical one being our priorities of signing a striker first. And a right back. AND a second choice keeper (a possible defensive midfielder too).
It’d be really ungrateful of me to not mention out FA cup success here in my comeback post. Cruel, too, given how much the players and the manager. I was on my knees when the final whistle blew. And the way the match went on, I wouldn’t be surprised to know some fan suffering from a minor heart attack.
I think I will stop here. It was nice to write something, anything, after so long. And i wish those of you who’ve subscribed are reminded of DelhiGunner, for he has resurrected.
