The Twelve Days of (Arsenal) Christmas

Continuing 7amkickoff’s three year tradition of silly Christmas poems, I present to you the Twelve Days of (Arsenal) Christmas.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
12 Transfers “swooping”
11 Like-a-new signings¹
10 Players Passing
9 Dribblers dribbling
8 Gunners scoring²
7 Crossers crossing
6 Brits-a-signing³
5 Goals on Spurs!
4 Swarming forwards
3 Midfield generals
2 Fleet-foot fullbacks
And a keeper named Wojciech Szczesny.

Szczesny has BALLS


1.There are actually only THREE players on the the injury list but structurally it works here. Oh, and about those three players injured, touch wood it stays that way. Touch it. Touch it all night. I also wanted to use “divers diving” in the 12th spot but I knew that if I did you would accuse me of being part of the media plot to overthrow the Arsenal.
2.True, there are 8 different Arsenal goal scorers in League play.
3. If Theo signs!

    I’m sure that took a bit of work to make it work.
    Excellent result. I just sang it to my (very perplexed) kids.
    So thanks for that and happy, safe holidays to all.

    Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas and all that stuff!

    On a football note I guess everyone has seen the agent of Ricardo Alvarez lamenting his client’s failing to impress at Inter who reportedly utilized Arsenal scouting report for the buy. he could still be a good player but Inter changed so many coaches during his time there that they made have had a role in his failure to develop. Just look at the ‘marriage’ of Torres and Benitez.

    we worship at the feet of those
    who play in red, do you suppose
    Falcoa, he might come?
    more likely send his mum
    and ‘bye to Theo Twinkletoes.

    Happy Christmas everyone and thank you, Tim, for great writing in a good blog…

    I enjoyed this blog immensely over the past year. Keep it up Tim. I wish I could do this. Even for little to no compensation. You have achieved a good rep amongst some Arsenal quarters. You have credibility despite the prejudice you get from some critics just for not being English. I hear English pods reference you. It’s past Chritsmas, so Happy anytime off from work you get and Happy 2013.

    Hope for all of our sakes we get 2 quality players. Wenger teased it a few weeks ago. John Cross’s spin is that he has already poured cold water on this. If he demoralizes us again, I won’t buy any new club merchandise. I hope to make a game or so in the spring, but I bought $400 in merchandise last year and won’t do that again until the club demonstrate some ambition.
