Arsenal Times
Bored? Why not complete the AT end of season ARSENAL survey
By Celine Dion
May 22 2012

Here we go again, as if I didn’t have enough on my plate it is time for the Arsenal Times End of Season Survey. No summer would be complete without my team of top trained statisticians and survey-ologists working feverishly around the clock in my garden shed in order to compile this, the most eagerly awaited and all encompassing survey in the modern game. Let’s see if we can get more entries than last year (it won’t be difficult), and please, when you put your answers down, try and be sober enough to make sure they make a BIT of sense, answers like ‘thingy’, ‘What’s his name’ ‘The Everton player’ ‘Can't remember’ will, regrettably be discounted.

Personal Message me, Celine Dion,  the answers (PM facility at bottom of this post) or email to Anything posted up on the public forum will not be counted. Closes in 2 weeks.
