Ahhhh Christmas. Christmas, Christmas, Christmas. Well that covers of a few of the 350 words I have to write about this seemingly innocuous story, which is ostensibly about men wearing jumpers.

Let's give it a go shall we? Arsenal have been showing their support for Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day by donning their winter warmers with varying degrees of success.

Illustrating the point wonderfully is Alex Sanchez in an OVERSIZED jumper! Ahhh good times *wipes tear from eye*. Mercifully he also posed in a regular sized jumper in Arsenal colours with a jolly looking snowman cha on the front, later on. Lucky, or otherwise he would have ben ridiculed.

Santi Cazorla, seemingly delighted that they managed to find a jumper that fit his bizarre barrel chest is also pictured getting involved in the festive frolics.

Arsenal ladies also got in on modelling some rather snazzy knitwear while also juggling a sock. At this point it's not clear why there were juggling socks. Sure, the women's game in grossly under-funded, but you'd have to presume they could afford a ball. Oh, there's Cazorla again, this time with a pair of gigantic knitting needles. Nope, no idea either.

I feel bad for the mocking tone of the article now. Still they got the publicity. Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day takes place this Friday, December 12, encouraging people to wear Christmas jumpers and donate £2 to the charity. You can sign up at

PROFFESSIONAL SEGWAY KLAXON! While the Arsenal are enjoying the festive season off the pitch, on it they have struggled as the big day nears. They fell to a 3-2 defeat against Stoke on Saturday which leaves them off the pace in the race for a top four finish.

The pressure is on boss Arsene Wenger to deliver against Galatasaray this evening, although top spot in their Champions League group is out of reach unless Borussia Dortmund slip up against Anderlecht.

After that t's a game against Newcastle back in the Premier League. Luckily that's not a fixture that holds bad memories for the Gunners and could finally send their fans over the edge.
