New Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn voted for Arsenal to be named best in the world

Arsene Wenger

Who needs a new striker or midfielder when you could have this, eh Arsenal fans?

Now, politics can be quite boring and a little bit stuffy; regardless of how important it is to get involved and informed with it.

However, we reckon Arsenal fans might just be delighted that Jeremy Corbyn has been elected as Labour's new party leader by a landslide victory. 

Why I hear your ask? 

Because back in 2004, after Arsenal's Invicibles season, Corbyn voted in support to put forward a motion calling for Arsenal to be acknowledged as "the best club football team in the world at the moment"! 

In fact, Arsenal fall inside Corbyn's Islington constituency so we might just see another motion put forward in the coming years. However, the last motion managed to get just four signatures when Arsenal were arguably one of the best teams in the world... fast forward to 2015 and apart from a few nutters on Arsenal TV we reckon you'll probably a bit mad if you believed the same...

Good old Mr Corbyn, though, clearly has a soft spot for the Gunners. And his election as Labour leader shows he knows how to win. Could Arsene Wenger get a few tips off the 66-year-old?
