Arsene Wenger to voice London Tube announcements for one day next month
The Arsenal manager will be joined by a host of London sporting and entertainment celebrities to voice announcements for the Tube as part of the Poppy Day celebrations.
The Frenchman's voice will be resonating across Tube stations around London on Poppy Day. Okay, well not quite all of London, more so the Arsenal end of London, particularly for the Arsenal, Holloway Road and Finsbury Park stops. He'll share announcement duties for that area with Arsenal captain, Mikel Arteta.
Other stars involved in the project are John Terry (pic above), who will be voicing announcements for areas around Chelsea such as Fulham Broadway, Earl's Court and West Brompton. Players from Spurs, Fulham and West Ham will also be lending their larynx to the cause for the day that's in it.
It's not just footballers involved in the initiative though, oh no siree, there are also celebrity names such as Sir Terry Wogan, Stephen Fry and Barbara Windsor.
We'd love them to do something similar here in Dublin for the DART or the LUAS. Maybe Robbie Keane voicing the whole of the LUAS Red Line and preceding each announcement with, "It's always been a dream of mine to get off at this next stop... the Red Cow".
