Okat then its going to be 15 years now since we won the title in May. How old was you then and what were you doing at the time.

I was turning 40 and had 2 kids and full time. Life was about to begin they said but like the title defence it never really has.
Still had another kid at 46 and bought me hours down in work so cant complain unless its about the Arsenal.

I was 13 years old and on top of the world knowing I supported one of the 3 best teams in Europe. I think I was in year 8 in secondary school at the time just being a complete nuisance.

I also made a post that @Bavin would never let me live down lol. “Gunbeatables”

I was 18 and loving Bergkamp, Henry, Pires, Viera and all that. Unbelievable how long ago it was when put into perspective with the age I am now at. I remember Highbury, how amazingly compact that stadium was. The atmosphere.

Obviously on a personal level, between 18 and 33 now a lot has changed, unfortunately not a lot has changed at The Arsenal since our last title.

23 years old. Lived together with my weird ex gf, worked part time, got released from my club because of injury, suffered from depression and life was pretty shit tbh. The league title was a welcome enjoyment in all the misery and later that year I started dental school and broke up with my girlfriend.
Been a rather nice life since then apart from watching Arsenal at times :see_no_evil::grin:

I was 21, fat as all fuck and just about to start out in the civil service. I’m now on the first rung of senior management wondering how the fuck that happened but I lost most of the weight and can now run half marathons so i’m happy out. :smiley:
