I’ve had enough of Spurs fans’ abuse now after a couple of days of it, so here’s something different. I’m getting close to 5,000 followers on twitter, so when I get there I’ll give away this Arsenal shirt from 2006. As you can see, it’s the redcurrant ‘last season at Highbury’ special. There is no name or number on the back. Click the picture to enlarge it and you’ll see that it’s signed (allegedly) by the 2006 Arsenal squad and manager.
I say allegedly, because I bought it on ebay and I have absolutely no proof that the signatures are genuine. They might be – it was sold as such – but then again they might not. Anyway, I don’t wear it and as I don’t know if the signatures are genuine I don’t particularly want to hang it on the wall. So it’s largely been sitting in a drawer for six years.
The shirt is size XL (44 inch chest) and is in new condition – it’s been worn a couple of times and been machine washed. The signatures are written in silver pen, and washing made little difference to them, apart from perhaps making them slightly less shiny. They actually show up on the real thing much better than they do on the picture.
So if you want it, just follow me on Twitter – @AngryOfN5 – and I’ll find some random way of choosing someone to give it to once I’m past 5,000 followers.
ps – someone thinks it’s genuine – see comment number 3.
