Attention To Detail
Attention to detail
I’ll admit we aren’t role models in that department. Between misspelling, getting it wrong on occasion, shoddiness with answering emails, etc etc it’s not a topic the staff at headquarters brag about.
Arsenal supporters on the other hand, are loving it.
Brendan was a details man,,,that little notebook always on hand, quickly checking the timepiece to correctly log whichever ‘event’ caught his eye, he clearly noticed and placed importance upon the small things.
It paid off, big-time. Leader of The Invincibles indeed, I maintain it ranks higher than a mere Liverpool second place, ironically caused by a man who would go on to repeat Brendan’s trick.
He who laughs first and all.
Now hes found a kindred spirit in Mikel Arteta.
Last season he invited the club photographer (and lifelong Arsenal supporter) to give a pre match speech, which helped spur them onto victory over their north London rivals Spurs.
Nowadays he’s got his squad training to the opposition fan noise to prepare them for the occasion.
Now that’s attention to detail!
And in nine months we shall know if this approach pays off.
However, that attention also turned to the left back slot. Arsenal have only went and signed not one but two players for that particular berth which our friend Kieran Tierney enjoyed.
Enjoyed being the key word.
KT opened up his heart to the rags and admitted the move hasn’t gone great, his mother had previously expressed reservations, and clearly has other things much bigger than mere football on his mind.
Now call me naive but,,,
when you’re troubled going home is natural,,
your family always has your back and are glad to see you,,
there’s always somewhere that feels like home, and home is where the heart is.
I personally would try and bring him home.
Right now, Bernabei or not.
We might not see the best of him anytime soon, but we all know there’s a player there just waiting to be coaxed out.
And I ask you,,does Uncle Ange not seem the perfect manager to get the bhoy back on track?
There’s zero pressure, we are covered in that department.
The support would once again be fully behind their Bhoy, the past would be merely water under the bridge.
The Prodigal Son returns to be wholly positive and celebrated?
Call me naive, but that’s what I imagine.
It’s a marriage made in heaven.
Look after him, and he will look after us.
Big Charlie Mulgrew coming home didnt work out soo bad,,,there’s surely been others?
The instant I read that news I said to myself make that bid Sellic, which would reignite the support and wipe the smiles of our rivals.
The instant I read that report I said to myself,,bring him home.
Take advantage of Arsenal’s failure to pay attention to detail on that one occasion.
He was born to wear the Hoops.
He produces his best in the Hoops.
He belongs in the Hoops.
For all their details, Arsenal never spotted the one that was staring them in the face.
He’s a Tim and always will be.
And that’s why I want him home.
What say ye?
