1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I just read the Arsenal page
I just did a check
And it says that at this stage
For 4 Gunners, no medal around their neck

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It’s not because of the team
But to have a Champions medal claim
To enjoy the season of dreams
You have to have played in ten games

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I find this really bizarre
To take away what should be rightfully his
Even if only a minor Arsenal star
Because the whole team has done the biz

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Jose Antonio Reyes, don’t worry my son
You’ve played in 9 games, you only need one

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 You’re close too Jeremie Aliadiere
Three more to go, the medal is so near

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Kanu, you too
One more game to make the breakthrough

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Keown, your chance of a medal won’t be blown
But you’re the one with the most games to play
You’ll be required to play every match, ever Saturday
Just 4 left to go and your tally is at 6
You should be the man that Arsene picks

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Lose none, that would be sweet
To go a whole season without a defeat
But what is more important, shall we say vital
Is that everybody on the team has won the title



This is, what I feel, is a silly rule. If you played, even if you just put on the uniform on a Saturday, you should get a medal. Its a team game! A silly rule that needs to be changed. Any comments on this? Post them on the other page…
