image for Where have all the Frenchmen gone? The Wenger effect.
Satirical writer Masterchev moments before being stolen by Arsenal scouts.

Taking a lovely walk on the banks of the River Rhine in Strasbourg, it is hard not to notice that there is an absence of one thing in particular.

Frenchmen.

Round these parts, somebody only has to kick a ball a good three yards before an Arsenal scout randomly apparates into the street; throws an Arsenal football shirt over them and take them to a training facility.

Wenger has always played down his dirty tactics, but at last we know the truth.

Anyone who can kick a ball anywhere in France is being stolen for Wenger's plans to formulate an "ALL FRENCH TEAM".

After a brief French conversation with a local, in which I bought a pot of petunias; followed by scoring a free kick against a toddler, I too was stolen by Arsenal scouts.

At least there isn't a language barrier at the club. Unfortunately, it isn't English: much to Aaron Ramsey's dismayal.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
