Arsenal's Club Magazine Just Made A Huge Mistake In Unai Emery's Welcome Issue

On your first day at a new job, it's a constant struggle not to make a total arse of yourself.

For new Arsenal manager Unai Emery, the struggle is even more real. He's following in the footsteps of Arsène Wenger - arguably the biggest name in the history of the club after more than two decades at the helm - and, crucially, shouldering the dreams of some of the most demanding fans in football.

Good news, then, that Unai Emery didn't make an arse of himself in his first club magazine photoshoot as the new manager at the Emirates Stadium. Bad news is that someone's made an anus of himself instead.

The magazine - simply entitled Arsenal - features the new man in the dugout on its front cover this month, with Emery stood front and centre.

Nobody at the club's design department appeared to notice, however, that Emery's head blocked out the 'rse' in Arsenal, leaving just four letters visible. And what do they spell out? That's right. 'Anal'.

Oh dear, oh dear.

Naturally, social media has absolutely destroyed the club, with wags up and down the country racing to get their puns in first.

"New Arsenal magazine cover hits bum note," wrote one fan, while another added: "You'd think first rule of design at Arsenal mag was: Don't ever let front cover image block the letters rse in the word Arsenal. 'Anyway - welcome Unai - Thinking big for Arse.'"

"Safe to say this month's issue of Arsenal magazine might have missed something in the sub-editing process," tweeted a third.

The biggest victors were the fans of other teams, you didn't miss an opportunity to have a dig at the 'specialists in failure' in North London.

"This Arsenal magazine sums up the state of the club," wrote one Manchester United fan.

"I'm guessing the cover designer at Arsenal magazine is a Spurs fan then," added another.

Ironically, the previously unheralded Arsenal magazine is being discontinued after this issue, which will in all likelihood be the one edition seen by most people around the world.

Still, saving your biggest humiliation for the biggest possible stage is a very Arsenal kind of thing to do.
