Are you watching Ashley Cole ?
on 18 November 2006
Perry Groves is the best illustration of having a modicum of talent, a giant heart, thrilled to get a break and play for the Club you supported as a boy..And be the ultimate two tick pony. El Pel, Tintin, Ginger with the red baboon face, terrible ginger marine haircut, too tight shorts was famed for running up and down the touchline chasing lost causes and giant throw ins.
As Gooners he was just not cool but we took to him because he was like a competition winner who got to live the dream. He was you and I.
Perry couldn't pass, dribble, tackle but he could just run, a true Forrest Gump of First Division football.
He won two major trophies, set up the winner in the 1987 Littlewoods Cup Final and played at Anfield as a sub.
We will tell our grandchildren about him, jokes will be cracked in 30 years time among Arsenal fans. He is a living cult figure. Buy the book, here is a happy and content man, not using his book as a vehicle to whine and whinge at a Club who gave him his dreams. Good on you Perry........... Ashley who ?
