1 comment to The 105 players now tipped to be coming to Arsenal this summer

  • Nitram

    So that’s The Sun’s next headline sorted out:

    ‘104 PLAYERS ARSENAL MISS OUT ON’

    Given the window hasn’t even ‘creaked open’ yet, we may even miss out on as many as 200 players by the time it ‘slams shut’ ?

    Blimey, if they’re not already, the scribblers will be positively orgasmic over Arsenals ineptitude.
