The Arsenal fans went mad with rage, they are pulling out their hair
The Player we all loved (only heard of last week) may be going elsewhere
Hold on he is on a plane, no he is in a car, but on which side is he seated
And is that a Flanders or Hertfordshire sky above? The Twitter row was heated
Off to Naples, off to Manchester, nah mate he will be a Gooner
Announce it soon though, so we can move on to another rumour
While others worried and fretted, I was never gloomy
Knew we had covered; cos Pepe was his roomy
Medical passed, wages agreed and long-term deal he’s signing
Gabriel is Arteta’s man, so United stop your whining
We have the leftie that Ole needs, another Woodward fail
Arsenal welcome their new main man, while United’s waits in jail.
So, Stuart get the camera out and take those welcome pics
The one’s of Gabby doing keepie uppies and some clever flicks
Welcome to Arsenal Gabriel Magalhaes, will be on .com any day
And whilst you’re there chaps, add in the ‘Auba to Stay’
Passionate fifty-something Arsenal supporter who has been making the journey to N5 regularly since the early 1980s – although his first game was in 1976. Always passionate when talking about The Arsenal, Dave decided to send a guest blog to Gunnersphere in the summer of 2011 and has not stopped writing about the Gunners since.
He set up his own site – 1 Nil Down 2 One Up – in February 2012, which he moved on in 2016 to concentrate on freelance writing and building Gunners Town, which he launched with Paul in 2014.
The objective of GT was to be new and fresh and to give a platform for likeminded passionate Arsenal fans wishing to write about their team. Dave still of course, writes for the site himself and advises the ever-changing writing crew.
