Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern almost fell off their bar stools this afternoon laughing and some bizarre quotes have united them with their rival Chelsea supporters, as they share a few pints and a laugh over some ridiculous claims.
In his column with the London Evening Standard, former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has urged Arsenal to make a sensational swoop this summer to land John Terry from arch-rivals Chelsea.
Redknapp believes Chelsea would be mad to let Terry leave at the end of the season, following the club captain’s statement that he will end his long association at Stamford Bridge when his current deal runs out.
Although he’s made it quite clear that he will not join another Premier League side, Redknapp believes Arsenal should make a move– stating that if Petr Cech moved to North London, then why wouldn’t John Terry?
These quotes have certainly tickled our landlord, who believes there’s more chance of Lionel Messi joining the Transfer Tavern pub team than John Terry ending up at Arsenal.
Arsenal fans, is John Terry a signing you’d like? Would he get into your team? Let us know in the comments below!
