Gabriel makes it a 100th Arsenal Red Card Premier League Roll of Dishonour!

The One Hundred

Just feel gutted about Saturday’s result, we didn’t deserve the decisions, we didn’t deserve the result, but we do deserve constant referees and we do deserve consistent use of VAR.

We also passed a milestone; Gabriel became the unenviable 100th Gooner sent off in the Premier League.



So, here is my homage to The One Hundred.


It began in August 1992,

When the Premier League was shiny and new

Red card number 1

Was Nigel Winterburn

And another 99 came by Jan ’22


Now Paddy, he played pretty hard

And for that he received 8 red cards

Most Wenger didn’t see

And he often would plea

His opponents were never that scarred


With 6, came a man we all cheer

Averaging 1 red card every 2 years

His name? Martin Keown

And strikers were shown

Whoever you are, ”I have no fear”


With 4 and 5 respectively

Come Adams and Koscielny

2 more centre backs

Who stopped forwards in their tracks

And dealt with them efficiently


Next on the list, Granit Xhaka

Who does have a tendency to clatter

In 5 years quite feat

Cos if he’d stayed on his feet

His 4 cards would have been that much lower


Then come the players who have 3

Phillips Senderos and Giles Grimandi

Mighty Sol Campbell

And the ponytailed Emmanuel

And with that look of shock, it’s David Luiz


12 players registered red cards of 2

So I thought I’d mention a few

Giroud and Wilshere

Mertesacker and Silva

And the underrated genius Abou


Obviously, a lot are out there with one

The likes of Cazorla and Alex Song

Matthieu Flamini

Surprisingly Wrighty

The list just goes on and on and on


Gabriel was number one hundred

And just in case you had wondered

11 under Arteta

Let’s hope things get better

Cos with 10 men progress will be blunted
