Debuchy remains an Arsenal player after daring smash and grab fails

66

Arsenal were left relieved this morning after the club shop on Queensland road was the subject of a robbery last night.

It’s believed the criminals had planned to steal the Frenchman but had to make do with a range of merchandise instead.

The Metropolitan police released a statement this morning, saying, “Police in Islington were called to Emirates Stadium, Queensland Road at 23:27hrs on Tuesday, 29 August following reports of a burglary at a commercial premise

“Officers attended and found that the front of the Arsenal FC store had been broken into and a large quantity of merchandise had been stolen. The suspects made off in a car and two mopeds.”

Thankfully the former French international was not on the premises at the time, but the club must now count the cost of the good stolen.

The police have listed a manifest of the stolen items and have asked the public to keep an eye out, especially if they’re offered Arsenal gear by dodgy looking blokes who may or may not be on mopeds.

They ask that particular focus be on:

3,000 -Yaya Sanogo shirts (XL)
745 – pairs of Alexis Sanchez branded throwing gloves
1 – Lucas Perez’s sense of self-worth
376 inflatable Oxlade-Chamberlain Oxen saying ‘Feed the Ox and he will score’
5000 Hector Bellerin hair-bands
1 – Comedy sized Arsenal cheque-book (unopened)

It’s also reported that the thieves made off with the entire supply of one vowel from the shirt printing section of the shop, and have warned people to be on the lookout for E dealers over the coming days.

Not a bad one but I have a question. Are we really going into the season with only bellerin as recognised right-back?
We know it is all a mess but still we don’t have any real cover in there apart from Debuchy.

Bellerin is a left back now. So I guess we’re going into the season with NO recognised right back!

Forgot Debuchy now.
Or has he been gone so long now that he’s considered positionless?

That couldn’t be verified. When contacted for comment the owner of the shop remained silent.

The Perez crack is unfair. (and the E joke is truly terrible!)
It’s hardly Perez’s fault that we overpaid for him in a trolley dash. Just sell him for whatever Depor will pay and get on with it. Why’s he being treated differently from Mustafi? And from Gibbs, who is going for £7m when English players are normally ridiculously overpriced?
Btw what has happened to Yaya Sanogo? I presume he earned so much in his petit adventure with us that he no longer has to ever consider driving a yellow van in France?

Jokes apart, let’s be honest. He’s always been reliable and IS better than Bellerin defensively, and is doing squat offesively lately.

If Arnautovic didn’t fuck him up, he’d still be in and around the first team. Always could be counted upon

Not sure what he’d do on the wing. He has about the same pace as Per.
But he was reliable, yes.

There goes our transfer budget. “Unfortunately our insurance claim for the club shop could not be settled in time for the end of the transfer window, so we needed to loan mustafi”

The article would appear to be incorrect.
The official police report says that, after checking the stock, the club found that they had more Sanogo shirts in stock than they had before the raid.

You couldn’t get me to buy a quarter price knocked off Arsenal shirt.
The last few I’ve bought have fallen apart in a matter of weeks.
Absolute pieces of crap.
I still have ones from the 90s that are fine.
It’s almost like they’re designed to break so you have to buy new ones

Times like these make me content I am not a season ticket holder. Hilarious post.
What if the Arsenal shop had a model toy for sale , ”the football brain” with each player having their own? Size and shape may vary of course.
Theo’s would be An empty skull
Ozil’s left side would be abnormally bigger than the right.

Apparently the “suspects” are to be our saviour signings in the last few minutes of the transfer window and were breaking into the shop as part of their awareness training of how hard that is compared to breaking into our defence.

Of course you’re right and I’m sure no offence was intended. This is just gallows humour. Things are pretty crap right now so you take the lighthearted moments whenever you find them.
