Here’s Stewart Robson signing for Arsenal in 1981 as a fresh-faced 16 year old. Ken Friar looks less than impressed, I must say. Perhaps he was enjoying a Scotch in his office when the photographer dragged him out for a picture. Or perhaps Mystic Ken foresaw Robson’s future career as a critical pundit of the World’s Greatest Football Club. Personally I take no notice of what Stewart Robson says, for two reasons mainly: firstly I haven’t got time, and secondly it has no effect on what Arsenal do because Arsene Wenger certainly doesn’t listen to him either.
And if Stewart Robson is of even less interest to you these days than he is to me, feast your eyes on the two pictures below. Paul Ince, as well as spending ages unsuccessfully trying to get people to call him ‘Guvnor’, had a moderately successful career as pop artiste Kid Creole. Well, it damn well looks like he did anyway.
