Everybody knows that to make it into the Arsenal team, you need one of three things:
- unquestionable talent
- a French passport
- a dodgy haircut
Here’s my top five worse head warmers that Wenger has unleashed on the Premiership:
(5) Freddie Ljungberg
The red Mohawk was just one of a small collection of poor fashion statements from the Swedish winger. Freddie often made statements with the manner of his head piece, but thankfully those statements weren’t reflected on the pitch.
(4) Manuel Almunia
Who can argue that the Señor Almunia looked a bit of a wally with his Village People impressions. The bleached blonde bonce wouldn’t have been so bad, if it wasn’t a bleached blonde bonce.
(3) Alex Song
Ahh, another of the blonde contingent. Just how do you attract more attention that Katie Price getting out of a taxi? I know! I’ll bleach my entire head blonde! Thankfully, Abel Xavier’s long lost brother is pretty handy with his feet.
(2) Bakary Sagna
Now what on earth would make you think that what can only be described an a South American jungle tarantula, would look quite tidy placed on your napper? Well, what you and I might think looks like a tropical animal, our marauding right back calls a doo.
(1) Emmanuel Petit/David Seaman
The new boys cannot out-do the master of disasters themselves, the ponytail boys. In Petit’s case especially it was evident that his ponytail was his power. The day he cut it off was the day he became a has-been. As for our Dave, well he would never have been able to save that Peschisolido shot without the gracious flutter of his ponytail following him like a lost puppy across the goal line… FACT!
Any other contenders?
