The Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern were crying into their pint pots late into Tuesday night, after a 2-0 home reverse at the hands of Barcelona left their Champions League hopes in tatters.
The landlord is trying to cheers the Gunners faithful up by offering 2-4-1 on all shots and bottles but some news he has spotted in today’s Metro will not do much to increase the spirit among the group.
The piece cites an article in Spanish paper, Sport, who claim that following the game Andres Iniesta and Gerard Pique, approached impressive Arsenal youngster Hector Bellerin and congratulated him on his fine performance, wishing him well for the future.
The Catalan giants have history with this sort of thing and in 2011 they famously did something similar with Cesc Fabregas, who would later make the switch to the Nou Camp.
One Arsenal fan is drowning his sorrows with a tequila shot from the bar and he thinks this is nothing to be concerned about, believing that the Spanish right-back is at the Emirates Stadium for the long-haul.
Arsenal fans… Are you concerned by this news? How good can Bellerin be?
