Arsenal were left reeling after a 3-0 defeat to Boreham Wood in a pre-season fixture this afternoon.
In a game that does not augur well for the new campaign, a Gunners side packed with established talent like Kristopher da Graca, Aaron Eyoma, Josh da Silva, Ted Helix-Washington Jr and Clive Hindquarters struggled against the National League side.
They were behind after 10 minutes, and the score remained the same until late in the game when goals from Shaun Jeffers (adopted step-son and half-brother to former Arsenal striker Francis Jeffers), and Kenny Davis (cousin of sax supremo Kenny G) sealed the game for the home side.
It’s hardly the start we all wanted to a new pre-season and probably suggests that we’re utterly doomed for what lies ahead.
Unless things change really rapidly between now and the first game then clearly it’s curtains for the Arsenal this season.
We might as well all give up now. You can find a full report on the shocking events here.
