Regular readers of this blog will express surprise that me, an Owls supporter since God was a boy, became a member of the Gunners travel club in 1979.
This was the year that my team, Sheffield Wednesday, were drawn against the mighty Arsenal in the third round.
Four games later Arsenal won, but not until Wednesday scared the sh** out of them!
Working in London at the time, and with a boss who was an avid Gunner, I joined the Arsenal Travel Club as a way of getting hold of tickets for the matches (in Leicester).
Arsenal went on to win the FA Cup in 1979.
I have a lot of time for Arsenal, despite this early enmity with the Gunners.
Arsene Wenger is a gentleman. in a profession of thickoes. I wish him well.
