“… I guess winter shall finally arrive,” George RR Martin, the author of the much loved and hated Got AKA “A Song of Ice And Fire” polylogy is said to have said.
When asked how he was so sure after procrastinating for what seems to be ages, he said, “I’ve been watching Arsenal on an enviably phenomenal decline and one fine day it occurred to me that I should meet Arsene Wenger. I am off next week to discuss the terms of his transfer from Arsenal to A Song of Ice And Fire.”
Upon being quizzed by our confused correspondent on how GRRM was so sure a football manager could help, GRRM is said to have smiled and quipped, “Ask them. Ask RVP, AOC, Auba, Mesut, Mkhi. Ask them all. If there is one person who has killed more lives than I have, it is Wenger,” and then laughed thunderously.
