From Seaman to Mavropanos (and most of those in between) to the tune of ‘We didn’t Start the Fire’ – Billy Joel

From Seaman to Mavropanos (and most of those in between)

 

Between 12th October 1996 and 13th May 2018, 222 players played under Wenger’s tutorage and I thought I would write (with inspiration from Billy Joel’s ‘We didn’t start the fire’, a ditty to commemorate some of those who have passed his way.

 

Seaman, Dixon, Adams, Winterburn

Keown, Bould and Paul Merson

Wrighty, Paddy, David Platt

Arsene Wenger’s magic hat

Marc Overmars, the Romford Pele

With Dennis Bergkamp, he showed the way

Nic Anelka, Gilles Grimaldi

And Emmanuel Petit

 

222 players

Some donkeys without a clue

Some world class? We had a few

222 players

They won the double double

And then became Invincible 

 

Upson, Freddie, Manninger,

Ashley Cole, Davor Suker

Kanu, Pires, Oleg Luzhny 

And some guy called Henry

 

Igor, Edu, Van Bronckhorst to name a few

Gilberto, Pascal Cygan, Kolo Touré, Jens Lehman

Wiltord, Edu, Jeffers he had no clue

Bentley, Aliadiere, Clichy and we are nearly half way there

Almunia, Johan Djourou, Senderos cost us a few

Cesc, Reyes, Flamini, the boy inside Van Persie

Alex Song, Rosicky, Eboue and Diaby

Best there was, Lord Bendtner and the scum Adebaywhore

Theo Walcott, Sagna, Gallas and Baptista

Denilson, Silvestre and super Jacky Wilshere

Nasri, Ramsey, Gibbs and Fabianski
