Just in time for the North London Derby!

Note: Most of this is tongue in cheek and/or included for maximum alcohol consumption.  I’m sure that once you get to a certain point, you’ll start making up rules of your own.

Take ONE drink if…

  • You yell (or want to yell) “shoot!” at the team.
  • There is a bizarre defensive cock-up.
    – Take another drink if this defensive mistake leads to a conceded goal.
    – Finish your drink if it leads to being knocked out of a competition.
  • The term “DNA” is mentioned.
  • Barcelona is mentioned.
    –  Take another drink if Barcelona is mentioned in conjunction with Cesc Fabregas.
  • An Arsenal player is injured.
  • An Arsenal player is fouled, but the foul isn’t called.
    – Take another drink if this player is Jack Wilshere.
  • The commentators are obviously biased against Arsenal.
  • An offsides call is wrongly made.
    – Take another drink if this leads to a disallowed goal.
    – Take another drink if this leads to a conceded goal.
  • You can hear the Nasri song being sung by the fans!
  • Nicklas Bendtner clasps his hands to his head in abject horror that the ball didn’t magically bend into the goal.
  • Unlucky Theo!
  • Arsenal score a goal!
    – Finish your drink if someone scores a hat-trick.

FINISH your drink if…

  • Almunia is in goal.
    – Order a new drink if he concedes a goal and the camera pans to Jens Lehmann on the bench with a look of disapproval.
  • Howard Webb is refereeing and the match is against Manchester United.
  • RVP is down, in pain.
  • Arsenal win!
    – Order another one and down it as well if the team manages to do it in a match without any red cards or penalties or any form of drama.


Take ONE drink every time:

  • You see a “Wenger out!” tweet.
  • There is in-fighting that goes beyond a 10-tweet thread.
  • You see someone begging a player for a RT.
  • Szczesny tweets.  Because he’s just that awesome.
  • Arsenal is linked with an English CB.
  • Jack Wilshere’s name is misspelled.
Feel free to contribute your own. Enjoy!

    To be perfectly honest, I think I would order a whole pitcher just for myself if I see Almunia in goal.

      Revised Arsenal drinking game:

      Drink if Almunia’s in goal. Continue drinking as long as he’s still in goal…

      EDIT: Oh, but that doesn’t work for when he races out of goal AKA when you need it most. Drat.

      • Subha says:

        Uh…here’s hoping we’ll be passed out from all the alcohol we consumed to notice that he’s left his line. And I don’t include an “if” in that sentence because we all know he will at one point in the game.

    Oh gawd. This is asking us to die of liver damage. Will try at the Bolton game tomorrow.
