Arsenal transfer stories in song titles/lyrics


It’s a Sunday, there’s not much going on at the moment despite having a lot to do this summer, but I guess time is on our side for now.

So, to help pass the time, here’s a post in which we work in transfer targets into song titles or lyrics. Feel free to leave your own in the comments below.

Golovin me, Golovin you…

You know very well
Who you are
Don’t let ’em hold you down
Reach for the stars
You scored a goal for us
In the Champions League
‘Cause you’re the only one
I’ll give you good and plenty

Ga-nabry, Sanogo, Alexis Sanchez,
When I was dead broke, man, I couldn’t picture this
50-inch screen, money-green leather sofa
Got two rides, a limousine with a chauffeur
Phone bill about two G’s flat
No need to worry, my accountant handles that

Get back jack do it again, ankle turning round and round


seems tho it’s more like ‘hit the road jack and don’t you come back no more no more no more no more’

The Loon Ranger

Holding on for a hero, i’m Holding on for a hero at the end of the night. And he’s gotta be tough and he’s gotta be strong and he’s Gottes drink lager and lime laaaaaaager and liiiiiiiiiime

Surely it should be “holding out for a Theo”

Johnny Gooner

Imma get in quick with an obvious one: Hit the road, Jack…

Clearly the off season is tough for a footballing blogger to keep new interesting stories ticking over.

Title:Careless whispers of Arsenal transfers,
Alexis: I feel so unsure
Injured feet have no rhythm,
