Arsene Wenger: The Joker in Disguise
While the man has provided fans with lots of trophies and entertaining football during his 13 years at the club, he has also proven himself to be quite a comic.
From not seeing tackles, to insisting that Arsenal being 15 points behind in December still had a chance, the man knows a good joke. Here are five of his classics!
The Fox in the box.
The man with the glaring ears.
Arsene Wenger had high hopes for this joke. Eight million quids he spent on him in 2001...three years later, 22 games and four goals. So much for the Fox.
The Fox spent his Arsenal career outside the box and more on the bench. Swifly transferred and now basking in the limelight of Sheffield Wednesday, where he has scored an incredible five goals in a blistering 41 games.
The Fake Cousin
More famous for his three somersaults than his scoring ability. That's three somersaults for every goal he scored for Arsenal.
Yep, the cousin of one George Weah came to london touted as the next big thing, three years at Arsenal and 28 games later, he somersaulted to AEK.
Winner of League and FA Cup.
(Pardon me, but B/R had no available picture)
Jérémie Aliadière. The next Thiery Henry?
Aliadière signed for Arsenal at the age of 16 before the beginning of the 1999–00 season. As a youth player he held considerable promise and he holds the record in the FA Youth Cup for the most number of goals scored. And Folks we came from the respected Clairefontaine academy in France.
Ok, sonny lets what you got. Six seasons at Arsenal playing an amazing 29 games scoring a breathtaking one league goal...I remain breathless.
Came to North London with a decent reputation and with a wretched one.
Always a figure of fun, the Baldy from Lens was more likely to give gunners a hernia than clear a tackle, Ol pascal was shipped to Villarreal 2006.
So there you go gunners, proof that Arsene Wenger is Comic impresario! The glasses say it all!
