Always Look on the Bright Side of Arsenal

Money money money in the rich man's world. Abba's words sum up Arsenal quite well at present.

Having shown thrift that Scrooge would have admired in recent years, the club is finally shaking of its shackles like some sedated Ogre and whipping into its greedily guarded treasure chest.

£40 million pounds Sterling, oh yes and a pound, for the services of a disreputable Uruguayan by the name of Luis Suarez.

Were this Chelsea, Manchester City or some other club used to throwing notes around like in the Crystal Dome, then the situation would be very familiar.

Biff, Bang, Wallop, How's your father and Suarez is holding up a shirt of the club and posing for photographs.

Its not though, its Arsenal. There's 'Old Money', 'New Money' and now there's Old Money trying to spend New Money.

That is us in a nutshell. Its not our world. And being Arsenal, its not even simple amongst the native fans. A world class player? Here?!
