King Billy takes us clear

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Well what a relief that was! We had six players out but we still won, what is it about us and shit teams, we did this with Sunderland.

We really lack a finisher, Ade will probably explode someday, I know that, but if we want to win the league this season, I feel we need to get an out and out finisher, like an Anelka, or indeed, Anelka.

We dominated for large spells but couldn’t finish, so thank goodness for another captainesque performance from Gallas yesterday.

Good to see Rosicky on the score sheet, I think Bendtner made a difference when he arrived, but I would like to see Wenger make his changes a little sooner next time, we know they’re needed, he knows they are and when he does it, it makes the difference, I just wish he would do it sooner. For my nerves!

I am beginning to lose patience with Eboue, I don’t think he gives us much, a bit like Song at the moment, he doesn’t do a lot wrong, but he doesn’t do a lot right either.

Still we won and ManU lost, I can now read all the papers and be happy, I reckon we can win our next three premier league games, Robin will be back by then and hopefully we’ll be the ones to get fat Sam the sack.

Not a lot to say today but not a lot of people read the weekend blogs either.

Next up Seville, let hope we can win that one and top the group.

Have a nice weekend Grover’s and see you all tomorrow.


Anelka to Arsenal Gilberto to Juve?

by & filed under Uncategorized.

I was staggered that Anelka said in the Sun that he was wrong to have left Arsenal, we play amazing football and he would love to play for us again, he also said he didn’t think he’d get in the current side.

That amounts to an apology doesn’t it? On that basis the board’s prejudice against him has to be lifted, he is just what we could do with until Theo and Bendtner come of age.

And if we sign this new young African Tresor Mputu, we would really piss those two off, unless of course Tresor’s a winger.

Anelka’s an experienced goal scorer and one that leads the line well. Go get him Arsene.

Gilberto looks like he’s now touting himself to Juve, it’s a real shame that has happened, he scored some 9 goals last season and was a great example to the team, I personally think he’s been treated appallingly by Wenger, but at the same time, players these days have very little patience.

We’ve had three players threatening to move on if their not played and four if you include Gilberto.

I think if Arsene decided in the early part of the season that there was no place in his set up for Gilberto, he should have told him, not snubbed him for the captaincy and then dropped him, he was worth better treatment than that.

Even though Gallas has made a great captain, he was out of line with his comments and seemed to get rewarded for them, Gilberto on the other hand said nothing and got nothing.

I think it’s no coincidence that we’ve now had three French captain’s on the trot, next one up will surely be Cesc.

So in short today, I’m siding with Gilberto for shabby treatment from the manager and I think we should re sign Anelka before Red nose does, one thing is for sure, Bolton won’t keep him.

We need to win trophies this season and he is the type of player that could help.

Not too many to choose from in midfield today, but Rosicky, Diarra, Denilson and Eduardo should do it with Theo and Ade up top.

But please no Song.

I expect Senderos to partner Gallas today, don’t know why, just a hunch but I think he will.

Did I mention, please no Song? If I didn’t, please no Song.


Oh to be an English failure…

by & filed under Uncategorized.

So Steve McClaren is set to pocket something like £2,500,000 for being a failure, no wonder the team are not from this planet, their manager isn’t.

Still at least they have ‘football’ and ‘another planet’ in comment with Arsenal!

McClaren said it was the most disappointing day of his life getting fired and paid £2.5million. That’s something else we have in common, it was my most disappointing day, when you received it.

Why do the F.A insist on giving managers 5 year contracts? Who was going to come in and poach Steve McClaren? In fact, when has an England manager ever been poached by another club whilst under contract with the F.A? It is bad business.

The whole situation is all a load of old bollocks if you ask me. Any man that can sit there, in front of the nation and say he won’t resign because he is looking to the future is a cunt. Does he think the public are fools? We all know McClaren stayed for the golden ‘Fuck off’.

People will say that you can’t sniff at £2.5 million, and your average Joe public would take the cash. For starters the average man has not earned the sort of cash McClaren has over the last ten years, Shat Mac’s not short of a few pennies is he? Secondly, most people who get sacked from their job can’t pocket a £2 million book deal and thirdly, most people who fail that badly at their job can’t go out and get a new job for a million pounds plus.

If Steve McClaren had any dignity, he’d donate that £2.5 million to an English Football academy. He won’t though, will he?

Onto things of a more Arsenal nature!

WE HAVE AN INJURY CRISIS!

Maybe that was a bit melodramatic. We have 6 players out for the game on Saturday.

Cesc
Diaby
Hleb
RVP
Flamini
Gilberto

That could leave the midfield looking a touch weak! Maybe Diarra and Denilson will start? Or maybe he will bring Rosicky into the middle and put Theo out wide? Who knows!

I expect us to turnover Wigan. They are a very weak side. Imagine getting rolled by the Spuds 4-0?

Patrick Vieira is back doing what he does best… Talking lots of shit. This time about Wenger taking over the England team.

“You need someone with a big character, experience and a knowledge of English football and English players. “Arsenal fans won’t be happy but I think Arsene Wenger would be a good choice. He really knows the English game.”

Hey Patrick, I reckon Adriano should start doing your girlfriend. He has more Charisma and is better looking than you. I know you’d be pissed that I’d suggest that, but I think he’s a good choice.

Anyway, Wenger had this to say,

‘If I was English then of course – but I am not so it is a ‘no’.’

So do one Paddy.

Another piece of good news is that Steve “I stole all the Arsenal Boys” Bruce wont be taking over his post until after the Arsenal game. Apparently there is a wrangle over his image rights. Birmingham want the £250,000 they paid him for the rights back. You’d have to say thats fair, I think he was obviously dealing with someone on the Birmingham board of directors when they slipped that clause into his contract!

Enjoy your Friday Grovers! See you in the comments section!
