Hleb more important than Cesc, Wenger thoughts and Arsenal to get Fat Sam sack

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Whenever I have to listen to an Arsenal game on the radio, its always a shocker! I have never felt so panicked as I did whilst listening to the second half of the game last night! Every Villa attack felt like a certain goal! It was horrible!

However, when I watched the extended highlights on MotD, it didn’t seem so bad.

Bastard commentators!

I won’t do a review of the game as there are plenty of people out there who had access to Sultana.

What I will say is that the game was a real test of character. The type of game ManU go 1-2 up in and you expect them to hold on. Arsenal are showing that kind of Championship winning mentality.

Villa really tested us in the second half and we showed a lot of bottle (and had a bit of luck) to ride the storm. Almunia made some important saves and dealt with some tough crosses from the excellent Ashley young (I think this is why we don’t by English ). Did anyone notice how MoTD glossed over the Ashley Young dive? Imagine if that was Eboue!

We also didn’t allow the 47 year old John Carew to ruin our night. The sooner that big fucker pops both of his achiles and retires the better!

I thought the Flamster was excellent. He has clearly been taking rage lessons from RvP! He truly smashed that ball into the net for our equaliser! I also thought Hleb was brilliant. The way he got just enough on the pass out wide to start our equalising move was brilliant. He really put his body on the line. Lets hope his injury isn’t that seriously, because I would go as far to say that he is more important than Cesc at the moment. The players had some nice things to say about him as well.

Arsene Wenger was also pleased with the team, he had this to say,

“We were brilliant and resilient. In the first half we played some absolutely amazing football.

“We moved the ball quickly, were accurate with our passing in short spaces and made it difficult for Villa.

“In the second half, the physical contribution from Villa and the fact some of our players dropped off a little bit, allowed them back in.

“I felt at the end of the first half we seemed as if we weren’t right on top of things and that made it difficult”

“But this is a big result. Because of the belief in the Villa side after their recent good run, we needed something special.

“Maybe in the past, games like that have been our Achilles heel. But we have improved, have more experience and resilience and we panic less.”

Hard to disagree with him? Wenger talks here about loaning out some of the youngsters to Norwich.

Jens Lehmann needs to go. He is acting like a child and I think he is trying to become disruptive. Get rid of him and either promote Fabianski or buy a new keeper.

Our next game is Newcastle, and hopefully we can bang the final nail in Fat Sams coffin! Oh how the tables have turned you fat Walrus Cunt! Mwhahahahah!

I’m off to buy some Sunday papers and immerse myself in glory!

Happy Sunday Grovers!


Adebayor says he’ll leave Arsenal

by & filed under Uncategorized.

That’s from his own mouth! Adebayor, fast becoming the motor mouth of the Arsenal says he will rip off his shirt, tell the boss he’s ambitious and leave Arsenal if we don’t win the title.

Is he on drugs? He will be one of the primary reason we don’t win the league if he doesn’t start converting some of his easy chances more often.

I think he has a real cheek, just about the last thing he should be doing right now is threatening to leave.

As far as I’m concerned we need to bring in a striker that can score goals and one that isn’t a crock.

Michael Owen is a great player but a crock, Wayne Rooney is fast becoming a crock, and so I’m afraid is Robin Van Persie, over the years we’ve had him he has been injured an awful lot.

So this season, we have one crock and one motor mouth.

I think it’s time we went into the transfer market and bought a striker that will score on a regular basis and will not keep getting injured all the time.

And I know I keep pushing for Anelka but ManU, ManC and Chelsea are after him and if he goes to a good team, he will be devastating and I for one would sooner he was with us and not them. He’s just 28 and has at least 2 years in him, or eight if he went on like DB10, he’s worth a punt.

Perhaps then we can start putting a gap in at the top and be where we ought to be, miles ahead.

Tough game today without Cesc, but we ought to have enough to fill the void and with Eduardo and Ade up top, we ought to nail them like ManU did, also when they bang on about beating Chelsea, although they were crap, Chelsea were all over them, as were the Mancs, so in theory we ought to beat them, but certainly not lose it anyway.

So how do you all feel about Ade’s comments? Am I reading it wrong? am I being unfair on him and Robin?

Let’s hope we can have a crowing blog tomorrow and we can all buy the Sunday papers and enjoy them!


Away win at Villa done deal!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Ok we lost to Seville, we did have a second string team out though, I didn’t say second string players as there were more than a few first teamers, but the team was second string.

We’ll be missing Cesc, Robin, Clichy and possibly Hleb, I say possibly as Wenger said there is an outside chance he’ll be fit, which is fantastic news given he was a 3 weeker three days ago.

I expect him to come of the bench, I expect Ade up top with Eduardo and Theo and Bendtner on the bench.

We’ll need our back four ready for the high lob to Carew, so we’ll need Traore in the right frame of mind, so it also wouldn’t surprise me to see Diarra or Hoyte drafted in the left back slot.

Midfield I expect Gilberto, Denilson or Diarra to partner Flamini with Rosicky out left.

Almunia

Sagna Kolo Gallas Traore

Eboue Diarra Flamini Rosicky

Ade Eduardo

That would be my preferred team but Gilberto in there for height would not be a major surprise.

What’s important is we don’t lose, that’s what can happen after a midweek Euro loss and if that does happen a mini collapse is on the cards.

Villa have won four on the spin but two of those were against Birmingham and Middlesbrough, the Blackburn win though was impressive, but Agbonlahor is out and he is their dangerman, so all is not gloom and doom.

They’ll be more frightened of us than we are of them and we have a good record against the Villa.

Every time we’ve needed a performance this season, we’ve risen to the challenge, so I expect us to nick it.

ManU stuffed them, so it’s a benchmark, if we don’t win ManU will believe they can go on and win the title, if we do win, they may trip up again soon.

I think we’ll be like wounded bears and Gallas for one will be having none of it.

Prediction 2-1 Arsenal.

We have a tough December, 9 games, but one of those will be the rub-a-dubs against Blackburn, one is the champions league game and again the second string will play that one, the other six are all against teams that will have the same amount of games to play, so in theory we will play depleted squads as well.

I fancy our depleted squads against theirs don’t you?

And finally, as a bit of Friday fun we have teamed up with the guys from the Clockenders and they have sent us a guest blog! Feel free to check it out and post your thoughts!

Have a grovetastic weekend!
