Working 40 hours a week in the Football Transfer Tavern does mean you hear the same things over and over again.
Whether it be the local drunk threatening to leave his wife for the fourth time that day or whether it be the statistic stating how long it has been since Arsenal won something.
Whatever it is, it gets tiresome.
However, with former Gunner Andre Santos winning the Brazilian Cup Final with Flamengo this week, the talk has turned to ‘that’ topic again.
The Brazilian – I was reliably informed by a punter – is now the 24th player to leave Arsenal and win something, since the Gunners themselves last won a major trophy.
One Arsenal regular was laughed out the tavern when he suggested the Emirates Cup counted as a major competition.
Robin van Persie leaving how he did and then winning the Premier League, Arsenal fans will never accept. Andre Santos leaving and winning the Brazilian Cup? I reckon they will cope.
