We get a lot of Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern and, it has to be said, the other punters give them a fair amount of stick about their trophy-less run. Therefore, it goes without saying, the Gunners have been making the most of recent events.
Arsene Wenger has guided the red half of North London to the top of the Premier League and has seen his side only lose one game, in all competitions, since that magical night in Munich which saw the Gunners win 2-0…sssh don’t mention that they still didn’t qualify!
The Wenger love, however, is spiralling out of control because when I started my shift earlier, the first thing I had to do was tear down a life-size model of the Arsenal gaffer as Superman, which someone had erected in the smoking area! Talk about a health and safety violation!
I’m pretty certain I know the people who put the cardboard cut-out up and they were the same people who, this time last year, were leading a petition to get Le Professeur sacked from Arsenal. Funny ol’ game!
