Wenger’s Captains – From Leaders in the Trenches to Losers on the Benches

Mr Arsenal
 
To inherit Mr Arsenal a blessing indeed
A Doctor of Defending and man born to lead
An angry snarl and a die-hard will to win
Winning a habit and losing a sin
Retiring the finest, this great club had seen
But the heir in waiting, his Vice in the team
We called him Paddy he came from Senegal
So gladly, we sang he played for Arsenal

He won games in the tunnel before the whistle blew
Such was his presence the other teams knew
Such power but such grace he was the boss
On to make history, a season without a loss
His final kick for the Gunners to leave us with glory
The FA Cup won the final page in his story
With Vieira now sold, the fans they were wary
From Frenchman to Frenchman, he turned to Thierry
Henry was our talisman and the armband he wore
The truth was in reality his job was to score

No trophies as captain of that I am certain
Yet...
