Snapshot: Arsenal’s List Of Fines Includes £100 For Reading Newspapers In Dressing Room

By Chris Wright

Here is the list of fines, as leaked on Twitter and siphoned up by the Daily Mirror, that all Arsenal players are liable to be stuck with should they step out of line on club time – including a swift (and harsh!) £100 for being caught reading a newspaper in the dressing room.

As you can see, all charges are to be made payable to in-house debt collector Per Metresacker – which is, of course, brilliant…

    Why are fines due to Per Mertesacker?

  3. Nuno says:

    This seems to be only to the First Team, so it’s like 50 cents fines to us “mortals”. And as far as I can read, the newspaper fine is ‘only’ £100, not 500

  4. Jamie says:

    Why does Mertesacker get the money?

  5. Ty says:

    Surely the “wrong kit on match day” can be removed now that Arshavin is out on loan.

  6. Vasko says:

    So what’s Per gonna do if someone tries to run away from him?

  7. WHFM says:

    Mertesacker is Arsenal’s debt collector?

  8. Zam says:

    Perhaps the fines go to Mertesacker’s charity foundation?!

    ” In 2006, the defender established the ‘Per-Mertesacker-Stiftung’, a charitable foundation that helps support amateur sportsmen and the poor.”

  9. Jarren says:

    I love the fact there’s only a fine if you don’t provide a piss sample for 2 consecutive weeks.

    Is it just me or is that carte blanche to get totally off your tits twice a month?

  10. Jarren says:

    Oh hold on, it IS just me.

    Jesus I need some sleep.

  11. OldNumber7Shirt says:

    Let me add, was it necessary to stipulate that the order is signed by Mr A. Wenger? Or is there some other high level managerial staff member also surnamed Wenger, so the first initial is warranted? “Oh, it just says P. Wenger, don’t mind that, Peter Wenger won’t do shite about my latent piss sample.”
