No matter where you are in the world you’re never far from Arsenal banter.
The 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeonchang, South Korea, are a perfect example.
To be specific, the men’s mass start speed skating final.
The gold medal was taken home by South Korean Lee Seung-Hoon, with Bart Swings picking up a silver medal and Koen Verweij finishing in the bronze medal position.
Then came the nod to Arsenal.
In fourth place was Wenger.
Now unfortunately Arsene Wenger hadn’t almost made the podium in South Korea at the age of 68.
It was actually Swiss speed skater Livio Wenger finishing in fourth.
But when Wenger and fourth are in the same sentence there’s always going to be a mention of Arsenal.
Arsenal finished fourth in the Premier League six times in eight years between 2006 and 2014.
However that must seem like a distant memory for this current Arsenal side who are as close to Burnley in seventh as they are to Chelsea in fourth.
Still, that shouldn’t get in the way of a chance to poke fun at Arsenal.
May the fourth be with you.
