At least we’ll get Traoré back! Harry what have you done?

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Harry, I can’t believe you went to the Spuds, I really thought you would finish your career at Portsmouth, what a plonker, I really liked you, now I’ll have to learn to dislike you, what a shame. Harry said it gives him a chance to manage a really big club before he retired, Harry, Tottenham are not a big club!

No doubt the first signing will be Diarra but on the plus side we’ll get Traore back and that has to be good news, a real left back, back in the fold.

Let’s just hope that the spuds don’t get the new manager boost and start playing well, I really fancied us to stick 6 past them, to be honest, you don’t become a bad team overnight so on that basis they won’t become a good team overnight either.

Harry’s parting shot was to recommend big Tone for the job and that I see as a good thing, we’ll find out what he’s got now.

Ok, onto today, the Mancs did part one by not beating our whipping boys Everton, We need Liverpool to do the chavs today for part two and then we’ll hammer the hammers this afternoon to make the perfect weekend, I think it could be a cracker so I’m going for 4-1 to us.

There seems to be a lot of Ya Ya talk but to be honest I don’t think we need him, I would be happy to sign a world class centre back, I think we have enough midfield players.

We had two AKB’s on yesterday which was a surprise as yesterday was Saturday and I was a little contentious, so it shows that there was a lot of people that were as pissed off as we were.

West Ham are a nice club and like to play football so I expect a good flowing game and Noble isn’t playing so it won’t be a dirty game, I can’t see how they can beat us, but then I did say that about Fulham and Hull did I not.

I hope that Bolton stuff the spuds today and soften them up for us to do a real job on them on Wednesday, I also hope that Bentley plays so he can see what could have been.

I hope that Wenger learned something from the fantastic win in Turkey and I hope he plays this team.

We can only hope, have a great day, we have a big week coming up.

We’re all Arsenal fans, that should be the message.

by & filed under Uncategorized.

So yesterday we had a swipe back at the Wenger comments and said what we felt but today I read something from one of the supporters groups that likes to think they’re the only people that sing at the ground, when I got to the piece that referred to Arsene as ‘the great man’ I stopped reading it, enough said.

Let me begin by saying this, Le Grove has never, ever said Arsene Wenger should go, spend yes, but go, no. So please any of you out there that for some strange reason that think that, please think again.

I get sick of listening to certain supporters who think they’re better than others, they’re not, they’re no different to the next fan, an Arsenal fan is by definition a fan, you can’t get better than that, so a message to you who think you sing better because you have no money and say fuck every other word, you’re no better than people who don’t sing as much but have more money, they probably worked harder than you did.

It’s funny, our manager earns around £6 mil a year, but he’s not a prawn sandwich merchant is he? He deserves it, this is the perverse logic employed by the very people who tell us to support other clubs.

Remember the library? We were never any good at singing at Highbury either, those people with short memories just think they did, when you get a small group together like away games or cup finals everyone sings, it’s a way of getting at the opposition in their own ground, I remember Copenhagen, I couldn’t talk for a week after that, we sang ‘one nil to the Arsenal’ all night, same at the FA cups, as I said yesterday, we out sung Liverpool in Cardiff.

I think the only way to do it properly and in unison will be to put the words on the screen like they used to at England matches, then we can all sing together.

When we had a ground with distinct ends we used to sing to each other, that always got it going, but that’s difficult to do at the Grove.

I expect the next few matches will be noisy as a point needs to be proved but for the long term I think this is the answer and I will be letting Arsenal know Le Grove’s view.

So Arsene, do something about it, stop whining, be constructive. You are extremely lucky your team plays to capacity crowds, they’re all Arsenal fans don’t knock them, they’ll all be there long after you’ve gone.

Finally a word to the groups that think they’re better supporters than people who don’t sing, have more expensive seats and probably more money, your not. Without the people in the ground that spend all that money, you wouldn’t have the team or the manager you currently have, they’re all fans, they come in all shapes and sizes, all colours and all with varying bank balances, but they all support Arsenal, so lay off.

Billy having a quiet fag was funny, Pedro and I were only last week having a booze versus fag debate, how funny was that!

Not a lot to say about the game today but I will cover it tomorrow, today is Saturday and of course a school holiday so you know what to expect.

Until tomorrow Grovers.


Arsene, don’t bite the arse out of it.

Yesterday Arsene Wenger told the shareholders that the press and the supporters aren’t supporting the team enough, give me a break Arsene, we have stuck by your baby experiment for 4 years now and still turn up in our droves, we still buy the shirts, we still sign up to the Arsenal channel and we’ll always love the Arsenal, whether you’re the manager or not, please don’t tell us we’re not good enough. This is what he said.

‘I believe this team needs a strong guide to go through difficult periods, because at the moment I do not feel that, either from the media or our supporters, this team gets the support that it deserves.

‘I want to be that guide and I want to get this team to deliver not next year, but this year.”

Meanwhile, Wenger has hinted that he could reinforce his squad with signings in the January transfer window.

‘We want to win at the end of the season and if we feel that signings are needed in January to accomplish this, we will do so’

Have you got any idea how much we pay to watch our team Arsene, you earn shed loads, we pay for that, at least respect us and don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

Out of interest I wonder has he ever paid for a ticket to watch Arsenal, bought a shirt or subscribed to a pay channel, I bet the answer is no, and he’s telling us we’re bad supporters!

You say we’ll buy if we need to in order to win something, we’ve needed to buy a centre back since Sol Campbell and Tony Adams left so why haven’t you bought already? Why wait till January?

I love this team, I love the way we play, I even love the boss, Arsene Wenger, but please, please don’t tell us we don’t support our team enough, I’ve had emails from every manc, spud and chav I know, taking the piss out of what you said, so thanks for that, but do us all a favour, start winning trophies and lay off us.

If you seriously want to win the league, stop playing the shit players you stubbornly keep picking and play those your unsupporting supporters know will do the job.

Finally if you want atmosphere then tell the useless stewards to shut the fuck up and stop telling us to sit down and be quiet.

Maybe then we’ll win the league again
