Well, it was fun while it lasted.
Yes – Everyone’s favourite Icelandic social networker Aron Gunnarsson has decided enough’s enough and banished me and 1000’s of others from his Facebook.
I have to say, I do feel slightly mistreated having been one of the first people to welcome him to the country, at a time when he only had about 50 Facebook friends, and most of those had names that ended in “arsson”.
Oh, it was a simpler time. He answered messages (for the most part), his page wasn’t a Freddy Eastwood slagging match, and his status updates didn’t include a stream of plonkers all rushing to say “Oi Gunner SPk english ur wiked LOLZ pusb”.
While he seemed to enjoy the adulation, I fear he didn’t take too kindly to some of the less positive comments that have started to creep in over the last few weeks. I commented on him being a PR king a while back, but I’m not sure how this move will go down with some of the fans. If I were him I would have just cut my losses and started again on a new, private profile, dead quiet like. That’d learn them for giving him jip.
Not to worry though, I’ll get over it. And in lieu of snooping on Gunny, I’ve taken the liberty of nosing around on some of the other players’ profiles and photos instead. I present for your perusal, some lovely photos from Elliott Ward’s birthday party a couple of years ago. (Which I’m sure everyone has already seen).
