Squirrel photo special.





Yes, having nothing to do with me being knackered after a long day, here is a 'Highbury Squirrel' special - also known as Squirrel regis, Squirrel Nutkin, SN14, Nigel “Psycho Squirrel” Winterburn etc. Here is a cute link.
And here.
And here.















Please don't sue me if you own these pictures. If Tel does go - there's only one guy I want to take his place: SN14. Quick, both footed, always causing trouble in the box. He'd be a real handful.

Jens, 2 cents:

The match at Highbury was interrupted briefly by the appearance of a squirrel on the pitch, which soon ran off after an encounter with the German keeper.

Lehmann, betraying a streak of wry humour, added: "I shouted at it - it wasn't tackling - and it ran away. But I tell you one thing - we were quite disappointed when we came here to England because the squirrels in Germany are looking nicer. They are brown and here they are grey. Come to Germany for the World Cup and you will see them!"

No sound, but still... SN14 in action.

Did we sign him for an undisclosed amount of nuts , and farmed him out to a Spanish burrito team to learn better tricks of nut scanning?

Haha, lovely pictures.

waking giant: that is honestly the funniest thing I've ever heard. No really. Have you considered a career in comedy? Your witticism there has left with my sides astrewn. Please, no more, i beg you.

It's not often your excellent manager makes a complete berk of himself. Henry showed him how it's done. Maybe it would be to your advantage if wenger went to Barca and 'enry stayed?
