Cesc does know how to quit you Arsene.

I was at the Tottenham Xmas party in 2000. Tim Sherwood was a douche bag but Campbell, Perry, Freund were all very nice.

"England international Jamie Carragher managed to do both at Liverpool’s bash when he got busy with a can of whipped cream and a gaggle of strippers while dressed as the Hunchback of Notre Dame."
