In the past, and in common with many other supporters of a certain East End football club, I have seen Arsenal Football Club as the enemy. Your very name provoked vicious outpourings of hatred. Ten minutes ago you had committed the ultimate sin and contrived to lose to Wigan. I was shouting at my television along the lines of “Arsene Wenger, you’re a ******* ******”. One minute ago I realised I was wrong. By beating Wigan 2-1, coming back from 1-0 down with ten minutes to go, you are our potential saviours. I would like to personally apologise for every word I have said about your august Club and its fine players. I thank you.
