Adebayor – thank god he doesn’t play for a good team.

by & filed under Uncategorized.

If Togo qualified for the Cup of African Nations we wouldn’t have won 3 nil yesterday that’s for sure.

I watched it live, and I thought, at last! That’s the Arsenal that I was watching before Christmas and now they’re back, fantastic, at last!

Ade is beginning to show why Arsene bought him, two goals that we wouldn’t have scored if he wasn’t there, and Rosicky’s goal was a peach.

Fab was, well fab! and he was unlucky not to be on the end of goal of the season.

I watched it again this morning and it was just as good so I look forward to some positive comments today Grovers.

Spurs up next, play the same team Arsene and we’ll go through…please!


Theo not good enough – Van not a crock – Elephant not Signing – Pato problem

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Good morning Grovers!

Mr Wenger had plenty to say yesterday in hihs press conference, answering many question we have all had over the longest non footballing week since preseason!

Wenger admitted he rushed RVP back from injury and takes the blame for his reoccurence. He is confident he wont be a long term crock and the rumour is he will be unleashed against Milan.

“Maybe we made a mistake to play him in the Carling Cup, because we wanted to rush him a little bit back after the muscular problems and were not cautious enough maybe on the night,”

This might be a good counter measure as I have been reading a lot about this Pato chap of late and apparently Ancellotti believes he is the secret Weapon,

“As for Pato, he can score 10 goals in the next six months. I have never seen a player so young and already so talented. I can say that without a shadow of doubt.”


All I’ll say is I hope Toure and Gallas are back for that one!

Wenger also mentioned that Theo is not where he wants him to be at the moment and thinks confidence could be the issue,

‘He will get where I expect him to be. At the moment he is not. But I’m not worried personally,’

So for all you guys who slated me for complaining about Theo in the week, there it is, from the boss. I think we can take it that Theo will not be playing today.

Wenger didn’t really add much to what was already printed yesterday about Diarra. Just that he was impatient and he wished him the best of luck.

Our interest in the “The elephant” seems to have been fabricated as Dimitriev knows nothing about the interest and the Agent heard about the interest from a European agent?

“At the moment we are talking about a prior interest from Arsenal,”

Oh, prior interest? I can understand how you would get that mixed up with him actually signing for us!

So Fulham today, three goals and three points is what I heard was on the menu!

Come on you reds!

Diarra to leave Portsmouth, sick note out …again

by & filed under Uncategorized.

So we finally sold Diarra, and he’s already told the press he’ll leave when a big club comes in for him, what a wanker, we now find out why Chelsea sold him.

No problem as Flamini has just signed a 25 year contract and Denilson will improve massively over the next 2 weeks.

Robin ‘boy wonder’ Van Persie is injured again and will be out for a few weeks, there’s a surprise!

He should never be allowed to play for Holland again, ever, ever, ever, my question is, will he ever be injury free? Players get injuries, but it’s normally late in their careers, he worries me a lot.

Can you imagine what would happen to your job if you had that much sick time? You’d be fired, simple as that.

I’m not suggesting that RVP be fired as I’ve already said he is the best forward I have ever seen, and that includes Henry and Anelka, but we really need to find a forward that can bang them in, and one that doesn’t get injured every 3 minutes.

I know we have Eduardo and Bendtner but are they prolific? (for us) for me if you can’t score against a team like Birmingham, you’re in trouble.

Maybe I’m over reacting here but we have one game to get back our shape and goal scoring touch, then it’s Spurs in the semi’s and Newcastle in the FA cup with Keegan at the helm, and we know what happens with new manager syndrome.

We could fuck up half our season in the space of a week.

Against Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Spurs and Birmingham we were woeful, so we need to get back in the groove against Fulham or our season will start to slide.

That’s why I think we need an injection.

I know everyone’s banging on about Vela next season, but if it takes 10 years to adapt to the premiership, why don’t we sign someone now?

Wenger talks about Rosicky coming back, but I’m not sure about him either, I would sooner we signed a winger, but we won’t.

Finally as Pedro said yesterday, we are letting in soft goals, as Wenger is the only person who can’t see how bad Senderos is, I can’t see that changing, I would love him to sign a world class center back, love it! (sorry Kevin) but he won’t so I hope he gives Hoyte a crack, but he won’t, so I don’t know why I bothered with this paragraph.

One more day to go and we’ll be talking about Fulham and their new manager so until then this is your last chance to bitch, look I have!

Have a great day Grovers for tomorrow we unleash hell!
