Episode 6 – Back From the Brink
Unfortunately, this huge fixture was scheduled in the dreaded 12:30pm kick-off slot. I’m convinced it exists solely to anger home and away match-going fans, as it is an absolute nuisance.
Regardless, The Eaglet was buzzing beforehand, everyone aware to a man that the team needed our full support.
Whilst a 3-1 result flattered us slightly, it felt like an enormous three points at the time after three abject showings against Palace, Brighton and Southampton.
Outside The Eaglet afterwards, I seem to recall Granit Xhaka being mistaken for Rob Holding. Curse those tinted windows!
This was followed by chants of
‘Super Jack Wilshere’ as an off-duty ambulance passed by.
Like many that day, a pal was going to the Tyson Fury after The Arsenal, so I ended up joining his crew in the Pins and The World’s End for a few before heading home on cloud nine.
The Arsenal social really is unmatched.
