Arsene hugs Rice

'Hold me Pat'

With only minutes remaining until Arsenal not only secured automatic Champions League qualification but also the chance to celebrate St Totteringham’s day once again, Arsene Wenger simply couldn’t take the nerves anymore and sought comfort from Pat Rice, giving his right hand man a hug as they sat on the bench.

Wenger sough comfort in the bosom of Rice after Van Persie missed the chance to seal the game in injury time. He stayed there for a little longer than is considered socially acceptable for two grown men, but it is was certainly a lovely moment and shows just how close the two men have become during the Frenchman’s time at the club.

The best thing about the embrace was that Rice didn’t even flinch! Hilarious. You can see moment on the video below, or just enjoy the image above. I might make it my screen saver.

    Forgive me but each time I saw Arsene and Pat together in the dugout it always reminded me of Morecombe and Wise, Pat being Ernie, perhaps it was the hair style. Anyway, they complemented each other well and I`m sure Ernie (sorry Pat) will still be seen at the Emirates quite often.

    That was fun to see. But I’m worried cause it would take Wenger and Bould another 16 years to form that kind of partnership for Wenger to seek Bould’s arms to calm his nerves. COYG
