Arsenal Times
Celine Dion's Magical End of Season ARSENAL Survey
By Celine Dion
May 27 2011

Times up?

The magical Arsenal Times end of season ARSENAL SURVEY has returned, by popular demand (well, Flava kept nagging). I can still remember the fun I had last year sitting up till two in the morning trying to collate all your answers onto an excel spreadsheet. So it seemed only sensible to come back for more.  

Is it really a whole year since we stumbled from the steaming wreckage of a promising season -flushed down the toilet by Arsene Wenger and his ‘thrifty’ approach to top class football? ‘There’s always next season’ we said, in an effort to console each other. Well, this was the ‘next season’, and blow me down if it wasn’t almost exactly the same. So why not channel your disillusionment into something vaguely purposeful and assist me in compiling a painstaking ‘finger on the pulse’ survey of the delights, disappointments, hopes, fears, and downright furious anger of the twenty or so AKBs’, insomniacs, and drunks that make up this esteemed forum.


Take your time to analyse your responses to the questions below, then  Personal Message  them to Celine Dion and I will collate them into a set of results together with an amusing and witty write up. Closing date for your submissions is two weeks today. You don’t have to answer all questions but it would help, obviously.


Best way to respond is obviously to cut and paste the entire survey into your response then add the answers underneath. By all means encourage your friends to enter, and spread the word via popular social networking websites. Don’t do it too much though, or I will probably have to take time off work.

If you do not know how to send a personal message, click on my name and select the option 'send a personal message' from the resulting box. Paste your response into the message box. If you are having trouble getting it in order, paste the survey to a word doc. then paste back into the message box when you have finished.
