Riddles and Brainteasers

It's all a load of Cannonballs in here! This is the virtual Arsenal pub where you can chat about anything except football. Be warned though, like any pub, the content may not always be suitable for everyone.

:lol: :lol:

But no no no we all know who shagged/shags whose women. :D 8) Little known fact but the ancient Irish for Englishman was "Microcockus". True story. :barscarf: :D

RE the potato famine - I'm glad you can joke about the mass murder by starvation of 1 million Irish men women & children and the ethnic cleansing that led to another 1 million Irish people being dislocated to the USA by your military and government never to see their homeland again. Unfortunately we as a nation still cannot bring ourselves to laugh at it. :(
[/unquote]

That wasn't what I meant , in Anglo Saxon times the potato's weren't around cos they only came over with Walter Raleigh in the 1500's
Not a reference to 1847 at all mate ,i wouldn't find the genocidal starvation of a nation by colonialist cants funny either !

Anyone want to have a go naming all the current and former Arsenal players who have a World Cup winners medal? I'll try to come up with the definitive list but can think of one or two who might not be obvious.
Alan Ball
Vieira
Petit
Henry
Pires
Ozil
Mertasacker
Podolski
Gilberto

There is actually 2 more even with Cesc's addition (I googled after my attempt)

1 very old, 1 very recent :)

The old one is George Eastham who got a late medal. You are not including the under 20s in the new one are you...?

We Oirish have a very broad sense of humour and can laugh at ourselves - when you see the state of us you can see why! :lol: :wink:

George Eastham is correct, with 1 to get....... very, very recent, in fact so recent he's still playing for us !

George Eastham was the one I thought would be the sticking point as he didn't play in the tournament but was given a medal a couple of years ago along with other squad members. I never even thought about Mustafi!

Yeah never even considered Mustafi either. :oops: I thought it was a trick question and that Ainsley Maitland-Niles might be the other one. :D

Oh it was a picture of a couple of Richards. At first glance they looked like stuffed vine leaves.
