Colin firth was one of those boring stuffy actors the Oscars love.

Then came kingsmen and his career blossomed


I think it's a film where you need to understand what it means to be a fan to really appreciate it.
Especially around that time.
Lot's of fans who only know Wenger don't really understand the club.

Makes sense.

It was a couple of years before my time as a gooner and a couple of decades before yours.

Only started supporting the Arsenal in 1990

You see, when one started the Arsenal journey in the 70's as I did, you have a much better perspective of what it means to be not just an Arsenal fan but a football fan. You seem to have started following the team after the glory of 1989.. straight after in fact.... :shifty: Most of your football life has been under the cancer of Sky TV and big money. It's no wonder you can't connect with the something so perfectly Arsenal as the 89 season.

Yes I can't connect to something I was too young for. Shock horror.

Liverpool were champions when I became an arsenal fan so hardly straight after.

Also lol at being a fan since the 70s

In 71 I was still 9 and can actually remember watching Charlie George score that goal in the cup final to win the double. That was the decade I followed Arsenal to as many games as I could get to, culminating in the 79 final v Manure. Still remember THAT game too. Went by myself and managed to buy a ticket from someone for £35, a fortune at the time, but worth every penny!

Ive no doubt you are but our good friend Jay isn't.

His nketiah is better than Auba cos Auba is shit cos he scores goals is not the type of thing an older guy would preach.

I actually said Nketiah has more talent than Auba. That is true.
When you've watched enough football, you can spot these things.
Auba is not shit by the way - he's just not that good. One of the worst 'star' strikers we have had for decades. Take '89 for example. Auba isn't fit to lace the boots of Alan Smith as a striker.
That said it has nothing to do with this discussion.
Your need to mention it says more about you.

Whether you choose to believe I have followed the Arsenal since the 70's is up to you. It matters not.
I will maintain though that not understanding what '89 was all about is really rather odd for an Arsenal fan.

Dear god. The tears you shed from Auba humiliating you since he joined and your boy nketiah doing nothing for us is immense and you have the nerve to question me about anfield 89 when the likelihood is you have been a fan for a couple seasons is laughable.

Keep shedding those tears when our best striker keeps scoring. And please don't mention anfield 89 cos you know little about it.

All this cos I didn't like fever pitch. Dear god.

Auba's average goal return this year kind of proves he's average - like I said.
But really, son, when you've experienced a bit more football, get back to me.

I was 8 in 89, so heard the screaming from my Brother but did not start paying much attention until the 1990 world cup semi dramas, kinda wish i experienced it though.

:arse fan:


15 from 24 games playing at least 20 of them on left wing as a inside forward with no supporting striker (Laca tryign to play that role but not natural), playing 2 x DMs no attacking play maker and no true winger?

I'd say the guy is a amazing finisher and could have scored double that if paired with the right players, not like this transitional period we are in right now.

I'm going to islington bar and grill
Holloway Road on Sunday
They have an event in there showing the whole game again
Plus the anfield 89 documentary
And a q&a with Perry groves and Martin Hayes
2 till 9-30
Might even go on the train so I can pin one on
My daughter works in there so she is getting me a belated birthday present
It's 30 quid
Bit lumpy but there is a buffet as well
