Illuminating stuff, although I’m not sure how our new wunderkind would fare against the Highbury Squirrel.

Do you think we could work out a chant around this ready made De La Soul classic . . .

I’m no De La Soul expert, but not sure that was ever a classic …

Well, perhaps classic is subjective ! I do like it a lot, personally. Each to their own.

Still, it is a tune that comes to mind every time I read his name and seems to be right there to use, so why not ! ?

It’s actually a Hall & Oates sample “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)” which was a lot bigger than the De La Soul song…

Now we’re talking:

That Hall and Oates classic also works for Gervihino:

“Gervinho go for that, oh noooo, he’s fucked it up (royally again the muppet, f*cking hell bring back Chamakh, seriously this kid reminds me of Bambi on ice, but where Bambi is completely stoned on Ketamin and the ice is more slipperier that David Beckham’s armpits)”

I still think the winner is Wham’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go”:

“Wake Me Up, Yaya Sanogo, you’re much better than that ‘bloke’ from Togo!”

One more ocelot fun fact: An ocelot has never scored a dubious penalty against a U20 USA side in the U20 World Cup.

France plays Turkey in more U20 action today, let’s all keep an eye on shifty Turkey to see if they try to sneak an ocelot on the field.

Wouldn’t it be Vermaelen urinating over the dressing room only to get shoved over by Arteta who’d proceed to spray his urine over Vermaelen’s urine to mark himself as new team captain?

Vermaelen is so impetuous that he would probably charge into the away changing room to spray his urine, leaving Mikael to spray the home changing room at his leisure.

Tomorrow’s Daily Mail exclusive:

“Arsenal snubbed by gimpy Ocelot – chooses North London rival instead.”
“Ocelot will fit right in,” says AVB.
“A snip at €23M,” says Daniel Levy.
“1-1,” tweets Alan Sugar.
“Ocelots are the future of football,” grunts Gareth Bale (admittedly through an interpreter.)

Another goal for Sanogo today vs Turkey. Clinical finish 1v1 with the goalkeeper. That’s 3 goals in 4 games in the U-20 World Cup for him.

Surely some matted ocelot fur is all we need to get Rooney to sign for us. We can sellotape some of it to his big stupid farmers forehead. Can’t be any worse than the last job he had done.

I’d be afraid of what would happen when, after joining Arsenal, he discovered that, in fact, there was no ocelot for him to eat.

One thing ‘bat Ocelots is that “they are wonderers.” Great that Arsenal finally got a “wonderer-like!” but is that the major addition we (FANS) are happy to welcome? A fan bust into TEARS when he got the news. This “wonderer-like” signing keeps me wondering whether Arsenal is really ready to boost her chances of a tittle contender comes next season. Arsenal must make a big move for the sake of the fans even if the management is contented with “PLOT-FOUR-SPOT.”

Things missed. 1) An Ocelot can really get its teeth into a game. 2) An Ocelot is great to have if you need to claw your way back from two goals down. 3) No Ocelot has ever been sent off in a Premier League match. 4) An Ocelot has a top speed of 38mph, which is actually slightly faster than Theo Walcott. While it has been said that nothing scares a defence like pace, although I reckon that the addition of fangs, claws and a well-known tendancy to kill warm-blooded creatures gives the Ocelot a significant advantage in this area.… Read more »
