    And, I'm a married man with four sons, of course I loved the custodian model; all these billionaire owners and oligarchs and whatnot are costing me an absolute fortune!

    The new shirts are very nice though and will be, no doubt, even nicer next season once Adidas are in charge of them again #kronkout

    You spoil 'em imo. No that it's any of my business, of course, but when I were a lad all I got all childhood was one knock-off Arsenal shirt from Woolwich market with the badge sewn onto a naff patch that went pink in the wash. And another fake England shirt in the classic Admiral red-and-blue stripes down the sleeves. :MalcolmMacdonald:

    At least the Arsenal jersey was cotton, tbf.

    This is a good point. Redgunamo likes to depict himself as a relic of the old-school of parenting, while the rest of us supposedly cave in to every demand from our indulgent, entitled, mollycoddled children. Yet he spends large amounts of time whining about "having to" buy the latest Arsenal gear for his kids

    I don't think he is whining - he just realises he has to do it so he can spend time with his proper children, the hounds

    Yeah, but your dad hated you, you said; anyway, wished you'd never been born. Different matter entirely. Ordinarily, your supposed to spoil your kids, that's what they're for. That doesn't make them bad people.

    Edit: *You're*

    No, I suggested you caved to every demand from your indulgent, entitled, mollycoddled selves, to the detriment of your children. That is something quite different.

    I didn't say that, and he didn't hate me for being born. It wasn't personal at all. Just a bad business decision, as it were.

    Same difference, imo. The whole point of the business is your kids.
