Are you a real Gooner? Take the Arsenal Citizenship Test; Xmas Invincibles Special

Arsenal Invincibles

As Noddy Holder says at the start of November every year at a Tesco’s (Coles if you are Aussie) near you: 

IT’S CHRISTMAS!

Once you finished trying to get the receptionist trapped with you in the stationary cupboard and you stopped photocopying your genitals, you might like to have a crack at the Christmas Special of the Arsenal Citizenship Test?

This Christmas Special is all about a special team; THE INVINCIBLES

This months results will be graded out of 20:

0 to 5: Dumb Arse

6 to 10:  ‘Arf An Arse

11 to 15: Smart Arse

16+: Grade A Arse

Please let the @GunnersTown team know how you got on, we want to keep track of you GoonerGeeks out there 😉

Same rules as before,

Answers are at the end, so no cheating and no Googling. You’ll let the boss down, you’ll let the tea lady down, but worst of all, you’ll be left with your pants down.

    The answer to your first question is May 3rd 1971. This is a more significant date, as it was the first part of Arsenal’s double. If this test only refers to “The Premier League” then it’s of no significance, we have more than 100 years of history before the emergence of the EPL

    * This is a more significant date, as it was the first part of Arsenal’s “first” double
