Parlour shoots... Awww Ray Parlour!

Parlour shoots... Awww Ray Parlour!

I would just like to take a moment and honour one of my all time favourite Arsenal players - Ray Parlour.

The curly-haired ex-Arsenal midfielder was recently released by Middlesbrough boss Southgate, and until he finds a new club, guess where is he going to train?

Mr. Wenger said on Arsenal TV Online:

'He wants to get back to full fitness and I offered him the chance to come and practice with us, but I will not be signing him, as you have seen last night at Tottenham we have some good young players in the middle of the park.'

I have some very fond memories of Ray Parlour in his dozen years in the Arsenal shirt. He was never going to put in less then 110% effort in a match and although lacking in skill, he made it all up with running and tackling... and scoring some amazing goals. The pick of the lot for me would be the screamers against Valencia at Highbury, and Chelsea in the FA Cup Final, and his (unfortunately disallowed) 30-yarder for England.

I read somewhere that one of his fellow players at Boro said that the first thing Romford Pele would ask after a match is the score of the Arsenal game. True Gooner.

HTG, the pr*ck can't stand up after the glorious victory against Southend, but still drags his hairy fat arse to his 1980s computer and dribbles, what a virgin.
