I was scared of him (George Graham) for a start.

Have you ever had a manager you were afraid of?

PEA: Yes

IW: I was afraid of him and this was me just because everybody was sayingtheyve

signed him but we dont need himand this was like two or three days before the

next game, so Im just worried.

This was the first picture and the first interview I saw of him after three days.

I didnt see him for three days because when I signed for Arsenal he was on

the golf course!

PEA AND AL: Shaft!

AL: Just for the picture

PEA: Just for Insta

AL: Just for the Gram

PEA AND AL: Yesssss!

PEA: Sorry sir

AL: This is

PEA: Yes

IW: You know, this was the season because that season when everybody was saying hes

not going to do it there and its going to be hard for him because hes playing

with better players and wont get in the team, and you end up winning the golden boot


I had to score a hat-trick on the last day to win the boot from Gary Lineker because

he was retiring that year and they gave him everything.

I played better than Gary Lineker that year and they gave it to Gary Lineker, and so he

took everythingthis is the one!

Go backthats the one man, thats powerful

AL: And nobody knew!

IW: Did you know?

AL: No!

IW: How did you get it out there?

PEA: I used Paul the kit man.

IW: Akers man

I put the mask there in the game before against Manchester United because I wanted to score

against United, and the mask, I dont know how but somebody took it and put it in a different


I dont know, so after the penalty against Manchester I come, I watch and I go ‘…okay!’

IW: Its better to be honest because if you done it with the penalty, it wasnt


PEA: Yeah, it wasnt so

IW: I remember I was up the top there and I think we done something here talking about

another celebration because of Spiderman!

PEA: Yeah, you asked me about Spiderman and I said no

IW: I mentioned are you going to do something and you said maybe something

PEA: Something different

PEA: Why though?!

AL: Thats crazy.

So this guy, he

PEA: Your best friend?

AL: No!

I think it was a bet likeArsenal will never sign Lacazette, if not I will tattoo

his face on my…’

PEA: On my ass!

AL: Yeah!

IW: Jesus, where did you meet him?

AL: He text on my Twitter and after we talked via my CM, so they talked and one game I invited

him to the game and yeah

IW: Is he a nice guy?

Is he French or?

AL: No, hes English, I think from Hull or something like this

IW: Hull?

AL: Yeah

AL: Woah

PEA: It was a photoshoot

IW: Wow, what car is that man?

PEA: Its my logo

IW: Aubameyang!

PEA: Yeah, with the

PEA: Ohhhhhh!

PEA: El-Hadji Diouf!

IW: No way man!

Diouf man!

You know what happened?

My sister, she meant to do my hair white and I wanted it to be white, but she got it wrong

and this was like goldits not funny man!

IW: Laca, have you ever done your hair a different colour?

AL: If I do this, I think my dad will

IW: Your dad wont like?

AL: My dad, my mum

IW: Why dont you do your beard man?

AL: No, no, its okay, I keep like this

PEA: Woahhhhh!

AL: This was at Emirates, you know?

PEA: Medusa!

AL: My first time

IW: Is that you?

AL: Yeah

IW: Jesus Christ, man

PEA: Medusa!

IW: I cant remember ever seeing you without a beard, have you ever played without the


AL: No, in Lyon once I cut it for like one season, but in Arsenal, always I keep it

PEA: Beard gang

PEA: Oh, yes!

IW: This was the 1998 season, the Premier League season, and they told me that the goalkeeper

drops it all the time and he did, he dropped it, but this one, I like this one because

you can see the different faces in the crowd and that, its nice

AL: This one is not watching at all

IW: He must be a fan of the other team, hes a fan of the other team.

Its one of those where when you see a picture like this, this is what you miss when youre

not playing.

This is why you have to treasure them moments simply because when youre gone now, thats

gone forever and then you can only remember this amazing feeling man.

Its an amazing feeling.

Thats it, were just wrapping up man and that was just a little trip down memory

lane for both of us, well, all three of us in fact, so see you soon.

See you soon!
