Training under Arsène Wenger became a whole new experience for the Arsenal players when he first arrived. Sessions were short and sharp and every activity was timed to the second by the stopwatch-brandishing Frenchman. Out went the distance runs and in came timed runs and bleep tests. Stretching was also introduced, including one session of stretching in a hotel ballroom prior to an away match against Blackburn Rovers.

Alan Sugar is now most famous for his appearances on the television in the UK show The Apprentice, complete with his famous catchphrase: ‘You’re fired!’ However, he was once the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur.

While at White Hart Lane he discussed a new Arsenal signing with the press. ‘It’s total madness,’ he said, adding, ‘If Bergkamp thinks he’s going to set the world alight, he can forget it. He is a good player but he won’t be successful. Arsenal got him because they needed a bit of cosmetic marketing.’

Readers may recall the story of the giant anteater who lived at London Zoo and was named Gilberto. The 120-cm (4-foot) long anteater earned his name when Arsenal supporter Peter Findlay won a competition to sponsor the animal.

Since then, in an exciting transfer move, Gilberto the anteater has moved from London to Colchester Zoo. It is hoped that he will one day father future generations of anteaters.
