Oba and out
This gets more painful to watch every time you see it even as a neutral, so we can only imagine how it feels to an Arsenal fan.
OTP like to think this was the Carling Cup’s own little way of wreaking revenge on Arsene Wenger for sending out scores of reserve teams in the competition season-after-season. The crafty cup let the silverware-starved Frenchman within touching distance of the trophy he used to look down his nose at, before snatching it away.
We do feel partly responsible though. During yesterday’s Liveblog, we commented how far Laurent Koscielny had come since being named in our Top 10 worst signings of the season so far back in November. Looks like we spoke to soon.
