Far Side View: Are You A “Grade A” Arse?

Following the apparent popularity of The Arsenal Citizenship Test, I thought I’d give a monthly Arsenal quiz a go.

This months results will be graded as follows:

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 fared, so we can all see how much of a Gooner you really are.

So without further ado, TheSundayMorningGooner in association with Gunners Town, brings you the inaugural –
