Grandmaster Flash Wenger rap winds up Arsenal fans – video

Radio DJ records version of The Message mocking the Gunners ahead of Spurs derby, which ended in violence

Talk radio DJ Adrian Durham has a track record of infuriating fans of Arsenal, and pretty much every other club in country – but his latest effort to wind up the Gunners could be his most elaborate yet.

The provocative Talksport presenter has recorded a version of the Grandmaster Flash rap classic The Message aimed squarely at the underachievers from the Emirates, with the classic refrain: "He's Arsene Wenger... sometimes it makes me wonder how he keeps his job forever."

Durham may not be as good a rapper as he is a wind-up merchant, but there are a few lyrical gems in the three-and-a-half minute track, which pokes fun at the Gunners injury worries and issues with personnel.

Although some of the track is unlistenable, highlights include:

Wilshere in the treatment room, gaps at the back,

Sanchez is knackered, is Ozil all that?

Try to win the Champions League but don't get far

Cos he dropped Petr Cech and went for Ospina

Welbeck on vacation, done well for his nation

Can't get him on the pitch, needs an operation

The track was aired on Wednesday's drivetime show, before the Gunners beat Spurs 2-1 in the Capital One Cup showdown at White Hart Lane.

Some Arsenal fans were involved with clashes with stewards after the final whistle, as they tore down Spurs hoardings at the ground.

Footage of supporters ripping up the stadium signage emerged soon after the game and, according to The Sun, Arsenal now face another FA charge days after they were in the dock following the clash with Chelsea at the weekend.

"The disgraceful scenes marred the double of hero Mathieu Flamini which sunk their bitter rivals," says the paper. "Police moved in after supporters in the South Stand upper tier tore down the boardings and there were further clashes outside the stadium."[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"content_original","fid":"84791","attributes":{"class":"media-image"}}]]
