We’ve seen Arsenal linked to countless forwards this summer, how much truth there is any of those links is open to question.
Our guess would be ‘not much’, but it doesn’t change the fact we need a striker and people are getting restless. So, in order to pass the time, we’ve decided to play a little game: work a player’s name into the title of a film.
You can use first name or surname, but the film must exist. You can also use any striker you like, rather than just the ones we’ve been reported to be interested in.
Here are a few to kick you off with, please add your own in the comments.
Bacca to the Future
Y Tu Benzemama Tambien
Throw Aubama from the train
Lacazette aux Folles
The Big Lewandowski
Right, you creative pun geniuses, do your stuff.
Carry on Campo!
(I’m aware he’s not a striker, still had to)
Denis the Menice
I as in Icardi
I know what we didn’t do last summer
The good, the Sanogo and the Ugly
The Lost Chu-young
The Dalglish Patient
Auba and war lord Shaka- Conquest of the Emirate.

Lukaku’s Talking Now
La Villa En Rose
Saving Private Robben
Klose Encounters of the Third Kuyt
* The Prince of Persie
B for Benzema.
The dark Wright. It’s not racist, is it? Btw pogba to utd shows that money is the single most important criteria in transfers. How else do you explain a world class player going from Italian champions to a team in europa league. We on the other hand are always looking for a bargain, something which a cultured left foot touched on in his blog a few days ago. Why are we told that players like Griezmann and Aubemayang are out of our reach? Why don’t we put in a 75 million quid bid and check the resolve of their parent… Read more »
That’s a pretty long and complicated pun, but I’m afraid I don’t get the reference.
I included the synopsis too. 😛
Droga does Dallas.
Willy Walcott and the chocolate factory.
Not sure if he’s a striker…
The Wright Stuff
“John Terry Is A Complete Thundercunt”
OK, I know this isn’t a film title but the player exists and it is factually correct
I presumed it was a Mad Max reference.
In fact, I wouldn’t have realised apart from the fact you mentioned it !!!!
Thumbs Up all round !
Van Wilder: Icardi Liason
You missed this surely….Van Persies Party Liason?!
Aubameyango and cash

Some other classic Matt Damon films include:
The Bourne Identiti
The Bourne Supremessi
The Talented Mr. Lupoli
The Hasselbaink Redemption. Carry on Gudjohnsen. Kroos Conrool (Made up 80’s action film I must admit).
Speed 2 was subtitled cruise control
Or the Shawcross Redemption. Obviously this is a movie that will never be made as he doesn’t deserve redemption, the leg snapping orc!
Although I would consider making the movie if he snapped John Terry in half. Not just his leg. The whole thing. In two.
It’s the story of how one Stoke cunt jumped in front of a runaway car to save the life of Aaron Ramsey.
The Shawcross Redemption ofcourse?
Bent it like Beckham?
“Bendtner like Beckham”, or “The Dane always ring twice”.
I was thinking about the one season wonder Darren Bent that everyone wanted. I wouldn’t dare mess with the name of the Lord.
Going ahead with one season wonders-
Charlie Austin Powers-the spy who..
Michu Black (meet Joe Black)
The last air Benteker(Bendtner would fit so well here.. But I’m not blasphemous. No.)
Big bucks Benny (McCarthy)
The good Johnson
And the latest transient hit – The longest Vard(y)
Love that one!
