Lewis Holtby's Great Chase Thru Time

This popped into my head the other day and I thought I'd share. Let me know if you like it, I'll keep going with it.

Act 1 Scene 1:

The lights illuminate the stage, showing Daniel Levy wearing a black cloak sitting at his desk looking over some papers. Enter Lewis Holtby, Stage right. Holtby kneels at the foot of Levy’s desk.

Levy: Rise, Lewis. (Holtby rises)

Holtby: You summoned me here, my lord?

Levy: I have a very important task for you Lewis.

Holtby: Play central passing midfield this season in Andre’s 4-3-3?

Levy: No, not quite.

Holtby: Improve my positional awareness so I can function as a deep lying playmaker?

Levy: No, but you’re getting closer.

Holtby: Convince City to loan us Dzeko and pay all his wages?

Levy: No, no they’ve wised up to that tactic. I need you… to travel back in time!

Holtby: I’m not sure I follow you, sir.

Levy: Really it’s quite simple Lewis. These last few seasons should have gone better for us, and I have a series of missions back in time that will ensure they do.

Holtby: Anything for you, sir. I’ll do anything to earn those 2k per week wages you so generously gave me.

Levy: Yes, yes very well. Your first mission is to 1967. To the town of Duttlenheim, France.

Holtby: What business do we have there, my liege?

Levy: While there, you will turn a young Arsene Wenger away from football, ensuring the rise of Arsenal never occurs! Muhahaha.

Holtby: (A dazed look crosses Holtby's face) Can Gareth come with me sir? A vacation is just what the two of us need.

Levy: No, no, no. I’ve got… other plans for Gareth. (Levy grins evilly to himself) Well then, off you go, Lewis. I expect that you return having crushed Arsene’s spirit.
