We’ve no idea if there’s any truth in it or not, but the Arsenal Reddit page contains a spurious story that a trio of Arsenal players were almost sent packing from the club’s pre-season tour of the USA yesterday after having the brass gonads to pull a prank on manager Arsene Wenger.

It’s being rumoured that Keiran Gibbs, Mathieu Flamini and Wojciech Szczesny combined their wits to pull the old “coffee/gravy switcherooski” on Wenger at the team hotel, giggling uncontrollably as their boss sipped from a mug full of what he thought was coffee, only to be treated to a mouthful of piping hot Bisto.

Wenger, unsurprisingly, was not best pleased and threatened to send the Three Stooges home for their condiment-based subterfuge.

UPDATE: Looks like it ain’t true after all…

Oh well, it was nice while it lasted!

    Too bad it’s not true. The idea is funny as HELL!! I almost snorted half my beer up my left nostril and spewed the other half across the bar when I read this. Don’t make me laugh like that again. Heh…

    Anyway, what the lads should do instead is the next time Arsenal wins is they should dump the bucket of ice cold Gatorade over Wenger’s head like they do in the good ol’NFL.

    Laughs all around…
