Arsenal Acquires New Transportation

Now, I would consider myself to be a fairly large (in passion, not weight) Arsenal supporter. And my car is getting up there in years (but still going strong at 120,000 miles!). But even I don't think that this is a good idea.

Are the Gunners just looking for new modes of transportation to get to the stadium for their Champions League match against Roma? Actually, it turns out that this travesty of a vehicle is going towards a good cause - raffle tickets for £2 get you a chance to win the car, and all proceeds go to Arsenal's season-long charity partner, the Teenage Cancer Trust. The Citroen C4 will also be on display at the Emirates for Arsenal's next 3 home matches.

At the far left is Arsene Wenger, Almunia is in yellow, and RvP is pointing to himself. But who is between Wenger and Almunia?

The design is by cartoonist Gerald Scarfe, and Citroen (who are Arsenal's vehicular coroprate partner) donated the C4 to the cause.

I knew a kid who used to brush his teeth in his car on his way to work in the mornings. The side of his car looked a lot like the spot RVP is pointing at.

And I believe the third player is Clichy. Some site called world car fans dot com has more pictures and a write up about the artwork.

How odd. Yeah, pretty sure even I wouldn't drive that.

On a somewhat related note, I may possibly see that car in person next week because I just bought a ticket to the FA cup match against Hull City on Tuesday!

@Sarah - you simply must take as many pictures as possible. You can be our "woman on the scene" correspondent.

I'll do my best. My seat is pretty crap, but I guess that's what I get for not being a registered member. Still, not complaining!
