It’s not easy being green

A sad day for football mascots as news breaks, via The Athletic, that Arsenal are letting go of the guy in the Gunnersaurus suit. That guy is Jerry Quy, a long-time Arsenal fan who has played the Gunners’ mascot with great conviction since its creation in 1993.

As Quy currently – and for some time to come – has no fans to interact with, plus he’s a part-time worker, the club has decided to hang up the suit. It’s a dubious business decision – surely the club could have found an online role for Quy/Gunnersaurus? On a day when the club signed Thomas Partey for almost £50m, the optics aren’t great.

I’m a Spurs fan but still, I hope the big green guy will return at some point, to create more magical memories like the one below…

Damn, I miss Wenger too.
