Arsenal advent calendar - December 11th

Arsenal Christmas Tree

HITC is running advent calendars from today until Christmas Day for a select few clubs - see what is behind today's door...

To celebrate the run up to Christmas we'll be publishing something new and entertaining every day, though you'll have to check to find out what it is!

Poor old Jack Wilshere. Just when he would have thought he would have begun to live this down, here we are to remind the world of his crime against that most established of English traditions, darts. As he was breaking into the Arsenal first team, Soccer AM pitted the young Englishman against Ivorian fullback Emmanuel Eboue to see who would get the better three-dart total. With surprising results. Maybe darts is actually a pretty big deal back in Abidjan, but given Eboue's surprise and Wilshere's disappointment, maybe not.
