Gunners go to Spain, need sports insurance
BBC Comedy have commemorated tonight’s huge match between Barcelona and Arsenal by putting together this short video of the Gunners making their way to Spain for the match.
There’s Arsenal cliches aplenty (although no Clichys) as the team take on the role of a bunch of unruly schoolkids let loose from the classroom by The Professor. Cesc Fabregas, Emmanuel Eboue, Robin Van Persie, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere are included in what appears to be a very stripped back squad selection by Arsene Wenger.
Van Persie struggles to make it through the trip without sustaining injury, while Wilshere has an accident of his own as he fails to stay in the holding position! The animated Eboue is as mad and, well, animated as his real-life inspiration, while Fabregas has plans to make the trip a little longer than anticipated.
Hopefully Wenger invested in some decent sports club insurance before venturing on the trip with his merry band of accident prone misfits. Spanish medical care to sort out Van Persie’s factured ‘pelvish’ could prove very expensive indeed!
