Farewell Lauren & Good Luck

Farewell Lauren & Good Luck

'Ralph' Lauren has moved to pastures new after leaving Arsenal and signing for Portsmouth.

Lauren has been an integral part of our squad for the past seven years, and will be missed by many.

Lauren has been out of action for donkey's years after suffering an injury that required surgery.

I'll leave the quotes to other sites, however I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank Ralph for his loyal service and menacing stare.

I'd also like to thank him for his penalties against Spurs, a huge hug for his challenge that sent Ronaldo flying 20 feet into the air,but most of all, I'd like to thank him for being a Gooner.

Good luck Ralph, take care!

We welcome Lauren with open arms at Pompey. Maybe he can introduce himself to Ben Thatcher this Saturday. PS Let us know when Henry fancies a new challange. PPS Give the mancs a good kicking on Sunday.

Iceman, what made it sweeter he struck it with his left! I would like to join in the farewells and wish him the best in the future. Pity he joined another club in England, I hoped Arsenal would be his only English team, however I am sure Pompey gave him a good offer.
