After the drubbing Arsenal received in the Champions League last night at the hands of German powerhouse Bayern Munich, it seems that the last possible trophy for Arsene Wenger and his men has gone. A humiliating exit from the FA Cup at the hands of Chicken men – Blackburn Rovers preceded this and as our Gunners fans here at the tavern tell us, the Emirates Stadium resides in a sorry existence at present.
It is a far cry from the days when Arsenal were the invincibles and setting the world alight with their free flowing football and trophy hauls. After the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Chelsea however Arsenal embarked on a period of being called a poor man’s Barcelona and did not win a single thing during this time.
It may have seemed like things could not get any worse at the club but after the sales of their best players and indeed the rise of Spurs, even a fourth place spot is in doubt. The club are one over priced ticket away from being called a poor man’s Swansea City – for those of us who have forgotten the Swans actually could win a trophy this season.
Why would we be talking about this I hear you ask over your very reasonably priced pint, is because a quite frankly brilliant photo has popped up on Twitter and if you take a glance below you will see exactly how funny it is – and sadly for Gunners fans, true.
