Most remember why we fell in love with our teams, but for me I do not know how I fell in love with Arsenal for the first time. I do know it was love at first sight.
For me, no other team compares and I am sure that goes for every other passionate football fan out there in the world. I am in love with Arsenal’s beautiful passing, the finesse of their game, the highs and lows of their seasons, but most of all the hearts of all the players and fans who each and every day give all their love and support to the game. Loving a team requires more than loving them for winning games and titles. Loving a team requires to love them through ups and downs, winning and losing because as an Arsenal fan this happens to me every season.
As passionate fans of the game, we have a special relationship with our teams. Like any other relationship that requires love, our hearts have been broken a couple of times in the process. In the end passion and love always win over broken hearts because if you are a real football fan, chances are you feel the exact same way I feel when I see Arsenal play.
"Whenever someone would ask me, "What makes you happy?" or "What makes you sad?" I would reply with one answer: Arsenal Football Club. I’ve been through hell with these players, this coach, these fans. I’ve also been through complete paradise with these guys; I’ve been through it all. But I suppose that’s the fun in my life. Football is a game and it needs just a few things: arms, legs, feet, but mostly loyalty. And that’s why I’ve stayed with Arsenal. I watch them play, with smiles or frowns, and I’ve shared every emotion throughout these years. Arsenal is a great addition to the beautiful art that is football. And I will always be proud to be a part of this team.”
