Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Everton – why can’t Arsenal win away?

Arsene Wenger 19

Tell me why, we don’t like away days. It’s 12.15am on Monday 7th April 2014, The games just finished, I’m sitting on my sofa, with a coffee in hand, staring at the TV and I’m lost for words, again.

And then this tune popped into my head. I don’t know why, I haven’t heard the song in years, but it seemed to sum up my thoughts.

So here goes. Lyrics by TheSundayMorningGooner. Music by The Boomtown Rats

‘Tell me why, we don’t like away days’

The Premier League has come to a head

And Arsenal’s confidence seemed to erode

And The Gunners ain’t gonna turn up today

Cos they just want to play at home

And Arsene don’t understand it

He always says we are good for the goals

And he can see no reasons

And he can’t give the reasons

But the reasons are there to be shown

Everton 3-0 01

Tell me why?

We don’t like away days

Tell me why?

We don’t like away days

Tell me why?

We don’t like away days

We don’t turn up

When play the top teams away

Arsene Wenger Everton

The Twitter machine, it turns obscene

As the press go into overload

Wenger is shocked

And the fans are rocked

And their thoughts turn to

The Champions League

Years 16, always on the scene

No, we ain’t ever had to admit defeat

And he can see no reasons

And he can’t give the reasons

But the reasons are there to be shown

Liverpool 5-1

Tell me why?

We don’t like away days

Tell me why?

We don’t like away days

Tell me why?

We don’t like away days

We don’t turn up

When play the top teams away

Wenger Chelsea

All the playing’s stopped in the away ground now

We want to play at home for a while.

Did we peak too early and will we soon be learning

The lesson of a Europa Cup tie?

And the tabloids crackle,

And the pundits cackle,

“Wenger’s the problem” that’s what they cry

Cause he can see no reasons

And he can’t give the reasons

The reason why we don’t seem to try?

Man United 2

Tell me why?

We don’t like away days

Tell me why?

We don’t like away days

Tell me why?

We don’t like away days

We don’t turn up

When play the top teams away
