Gunners Kelby Shaw Has Man U Tryout End in Disappointment PDF Print E-mail
Kelby Shaw at Old Trafford 2 Kelby Shaw at Old Trafford 3

Kelby "Kez" Shaw of the GGSL Gunners gave it all he had, but in the end earning a place on one of the world's most fabled teams proved to be too much. Earlier this year when the EPL's Manchester United made a habit of giving up late goals, Manager Jose Mourinho expressed interest in the GGSL shutdown defender who flew to Manchester for the holidays. Unfortunately for Shaw, much improved results by the Red Devils killed his chances of earning a spot. "No, he will not be on the squad." declared Mourinho at his weekly press conference. "His quality is undeniable, I repeat, undeniable, but when we win and everyone plays well, I repeat, everyone plays well, how I tell Smalling or Blind they must sit?"  The above photos (L to R) taken before his childhood dream of playing for United was crushed, show a smiling Shaw posing in the Man U dressing room with his #23 jersey, and in front of the stands at Old Trafford.

Earl McGuire at West Ham - Sep 2016

Thee Olde Boys manager Earl "The Pearl" McGuire was spotted on Sep 25, 2016 in East London watching West Ham host Southhampton.  The Pearl and his lovely wife Nathalie were visiting son (and GGSL referee) Francis McGuire.  There is absolutely no truth to the rumour that Francis was in London to get remedial referee training and/or eye surgery at a famed London ophthalmology clinic, rather he is attending Lancaster University in a program in International Management. Southhampton ended up destroying the Hammers by a score of 3-0. Safe travels McGuire family and good luck Francis with your studies!

Andreas Kar

Imagine our surprise during the 80th minute of the key BPL match between Arsenal - Manchester City when the cameras zoomed in on none other than GGSL'er Andreas, aka "Andy", aka "AK-47" Karseras (on left). Btw, that is 10 "A's" and 4 "K's", if you are counting. Although he may wear the Bayern colours on Friday nights, Andy was clearly 'outed' as a Gooner at heart. With his hands clapsed in prayer, Andy was no doubt responsible for the thrilling Arsenal victory, a key 3 points in their quest for this year's title.

 Ex-GGSL'er Mike Lanos attended the November, 2015 Bundesliga match between Borussia Dortmund and arch-rivals Schalke (see Mike on the left hand photo at the bottom-right). Mike called it "a soccer experience of a lifetime" as he took in the derby match with some of the most passionate fans in the world in the midst of Dortmund's famed "Yellow Wall" (Dortmund's 25,000 strong standing-room terrace).
