In Where The Wild Things Are, Max is transported to a far and distant land where… the wild things are… and initially looks to be in some danger. But Max is no mug and uses his guile to win the wild things over, specifically by staring them down and showing he’s not afraid. Then they respect him and, more importantly, effectively allow him to take them over. Eventually they all spend three double pages having wild fun together.
There are obvious parallels between Max and the wild things and Fulham and Arsenal. Max was in some distress when he first set out on his journey (he had been sent to his room), just as Fulham are now (we have fewer points than we think we should have). But from this distress comes strength and ultimately belief, belief to stand toe to toe with big and frightening foes, to take them on at their own game and trust in his ability to do this. It works and he leaves the Wild Things as conqueror, on his own terms.
There we go. How to beat Arsenal.
That and stop Robin van Persie.
