Top Class Premiership Finale

 

arsenal fans Top Class Premiership Finale

What a day. What a season!

The magnificent open match between Arsenal and Wigan was a beautiful 90 minutes to watch. Arsenal were top class, both on and off the pitch. From the red, white and blue “I Was There” T-shirts to the boisterous singing from the Arsenal fans, today’s match was a storybook finale for Highbury.

This is why I love the Premiership so much. The passion, the scintillating skills on the field, the history, the speed and physicality, and the competitiveness.

As if this wasn’t enough, the excitement was heightened by witnessing how the fans reacted to the West Ham versus Spurs match being played at the same time.

And then, of course, there were plenty of goals in the other matches. 23 in fact, and a total of 29 on closing day. Farewell the 2005-2006 season, and bring on the next one!
