    One question i will like to ask wenger and allthe jubilating Arsenal fans is this- would Arsenal be able to play like Leicester if the red card was against them? I am now convinced that Leicester will take the trophy and at worse be Champion league participant. I will advice all these big money teams to study Leicester fc and see how they gathered these unknown and not too spectacular players and turn them to world beaters. the coach is too good. Mourinho, Pep, Arsene, Simone, there is a new kid in town and all attention is on him. BE WARNED!!! It is only Arsenal that is paying attention. This is why I like Arsene Wenger but my support is with Leicester. Arsenal watched Leicester and they want to do thing better than Leicester by poaching one of Leicester's scouts. Where you dey get these unknow boy ooooo. Show me too na. Although they got the wrong man, this one will try for Arsenal too. With the amount of money the teams will get next season, if any club feels he will not recruit will be in trouble. NA ADVICE O.
