I have seen some strange things written and said about Arsenal over the years, especially in the trophy free years when the Gunners seemed to have become like the football equivalent of Cecil the lion; fair game for any idiot with a typewriter or computer keyboard.
But I reckon that the accusation laid at the feet of the current Arsenal team by the man who used to be our main adversary due to his running battle with our former captain Patrick Vieira has taken the anti-Arsenal to a whole new, and bizarre, height.
Roy Keane has issued a withering condemnation of the modern Gunners and revealed why our hopes of winning the Premier League are doomed before we even kick a ball, as reported in The Mirror.
Keane said, “There’s too many Arsenal players interested in selfies.
“Instead of focusing on winning Premier League titles, it’s all about how their bodies look, how their hair is, more so than winning football matches.
“They’ve got really good players, it’s just that some of their players are more interested in selfies and six packs.”
Well there you go Gooners. The reason why Arsenal have been struggling to win games and have not won a trophy in years. Oh wait a minute, how about our back to back victories in the FA cup Roy? Just a thought Keano, but have you thought that it might be possible to care about how you look and still be able to play well?
I must admit that I am not the biggest fan of the selfie but they are just a part of modern life and I really cannot see how they have any bearing whatsoever on a team´s ability or inability to win a league title. Correct me if I am wrong but did Germany not take selfies on the pitch after winning the World cup? How is that even possible?
Thanks for the chuckles Roy. Keep em coming.
