[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] In preparation for their visit to the U.S. Northeast, where they'll play the New York Red Bulls in New Jersey on Saturday, Arsenal players made an admirable and humorous attempt to at a New York accents.

Using catch phrases popularized in movies and TV shows, Carl Jenkinson, Serge Gnabry, Kieran Gibbs and Mathieu Flamini give it a good try.

Will they pass as New Yorkers and New Jersyans?

Fuhgettaboutit!

    I have been living in NYC for over 24 years and this is the first time I heard the word "New Yorkese." I thought initially that someone is making a joke and combining two words, "New York" and "Martin Scorsese." When I checked the Webster, I found out that this term has been in use for over 120 years. Interesting!

    Probably doing better than I would, being from the midwest (St. Louis)

    Just steer them safely away from some parts of the Bronx -- so that they can actually get to start and pay some games this autumn in the EPL. Language skills won't help much in some of those rough neighborhood boroughs.
