Arsenal's Lost Boys: An Entire Transferred Arsenal XI

The fact that this article is even being written is something of a fallacy.

Over the past five years, Arsenal has seen enough top-class players leave the club to form a very competitive XI entirely comprised of transferred players.

If football were to equate to life, Arsenal has, over the past five years, lost its job, invested its life savings with Bernie Madoff, seen its dog run over by an Animal Rights van, learned it has colour blindness, contracted a vicious, genital-targeting strain of smallpox, purchased an asbestos-ridden mansion situated next door to Nickelback’s recording studio, and discovered its newborn son’s eyes are disconcertingly similar to the postman’s.

So yeah. It’s been a pretty tough time.

If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry. So prepare a box of tissues (get your mind out of the gutter, filthy reader), take a deep breath, and plunge into the depths of the depressing “what-if’s” that make football fanship oh-so masochistic.
