Osama Bin Laden a Gooner?

TottenhamNo; I’m not suggesting that Osama Bin Laden is dead whilst using a Scots’ accent. It turns out though that once upon a time Osama Bin Laden held a season ticket for Arsenal FC.

I can’t say I’m surprised; the crusade against Zionist Imperialism must go hand in hand with standing under the Clock head at Avenell Road on a Saturday afternoon drinking Bovril and watching 22 overpaid goons run around a pitch.

How hilarious would it have been had OBL been a Tottenham Hotspur fan though? He might have had a problem with some of the chants.

“Get out your riot gear
Yids are here
Yids are here!”

Seriously though, I must have been living under a rock when this story was first splashed across newspaper headlines. I could have tortured bloody Arsenal fans with it for months. There’s a kid in one of my classes who keeps mentioning how Spurs couldn’t beat either the Arsenal first team or the Reserves (which we didn’t). I wonder how he’ll react when I tell him?

Also known to support Arsenal: Joseph Stalin, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot…are you seeing where this is going?

    Hi Chi Minh also lived in Crouch End/Stroud Green for a while (NOT a joke). But it is well known he dismissed a team that played so many players from the imperial power :-)

    So I’ve heard – he was working at a hotel or something? I’ve never read a biography of Ho Chi Minh. Perhaps I should.
