I suppose I could've worded that better.
It'd be a shame if the estimates I saw of the number of Arsenal fans around the world also included all the dead fans.
For a club that's been around for easily over a hundred years, made the top-4 of the toughest league in the world 15 seasons running and won the first division 13 times (throughout its history, not in the last 15 years,) as well as recently earning a reputation for taking in young players with potential and crafting superstars out of them, all the while pursuing beautiful football for the fans rather than playing dirty or boring games for money and trophies (which unfortunately goes some way towards explaining why their last title was in 2004,) 100 million fans over all that history would be a miserable result.
(If you're guessing that I'm a fan of Arsenal FC, why, you're right; but my favourite team is the Spanish national team, thought Barcelona comes close second just before Arsenal. Still, even after drooling over Spain and Barca, I've got plenty of love left for Arsenal.)
