Yellow Submarine.

As a gooner there are some things you want to do. Once, then again and then forever. Like Tollington / Gunners Pub pre-post game. Or going to an away game. Specially if it involves a boat!!

Thanks to my darling gooner buddy Kal (@goonerkal) I got on to this away boyz boat. This was one of ‘the’ experiences I dreamed off. Being on a boat to Fulham, so when Kal asked me and Christian, “should I get you guys tickets”,  I quickly exchanged my ifs & buts with an air ticket to London.

Realised a little later that the reporting is at bloody 8.00 am in the morning. Beer gargle etc, and other jokes followed. The other downer was that Kal had to miss the trip for some reason. And so I looked forward to meeting other gooners on the boat. Ricky and Peter. And met a few more luckily.

I’ll let the pictures do the talking and not bore you with words. And I do not know many people by name here. So please tag or RT this post to them to find themselves, if you identify them.


Yes it almost looked b/w at 8.00 am. We were a few minutes early and it was still drizzling.


That’s my pal Shami. First beer at 8.15. Never had alcohol this early in my life!

And then it rained cats & dogs and were huddled into a km long penguin march all huddled up, looking down. Of course the camera was kept away. It re-emerged after some one decided to put use to the flare they had brought along.

And what a sweet result to this game as well. Made it all, all the more special.
Would I do it again?
Wouldn’t you?

    Great stuff Ankit. What a crazy bunch of gooners & someone really optimistic as well, what with the Diaby 24 shirt and all : ) Keep it coming as & when you get the time. 2 more matchdays to go, right?
