I watched Oceans Twelve for the first time last night and was somewhat bemused and bewildered by the scene involving them The Arsenal? However, plot ambiguity aside, what struck me watching this was that if the movie was made today they would probably be wearing Chav outfits? While this is not the end of the world, it does have major implications and it farkin sucks (lets be honest!). Club success can no longer depend upon the home fan base, it's an international business and the cache of not being the capital's premier team will cost us big moolar? If a European League ever started then as of this minute, I don't think we would make it in? While AW has said he considered making a move for Michael Owen in the summer, but didn't, and while I wouldn't have been mad keen on his coming, in hindsight he might have been a useful acquisition? With DB1o done and Titi a ?, and with DB7 on the wain, it looks like Owen couldl be the next England Captain and his worldwide profile, as well as his reignited form, would've been good for the club? At a time when we're about to move into a super new facility surely we need to have more than one player with a profile on the world stage; and who will we have if Titi leaves? We don't have the living memory history of a Liverpool, we haven't sustained the runaway success of ManUre in the late 80's and early 90's and we don't have the billions that the Chavs have; and we don't currently have the depth of quality and experience to consistantly play breathtaking football and consistantly win major trophies, so how do we define/redefine ourselves in this "brave New World", because waiting is probably not a comfort we can afford?
