Money won – Arsene screwed us again – End of season rant begins…

by & filed under Uncategorized.

I’ve never been so gutted.

The numbness is worse than Chelsea in the semi’s, Barca in the final, Spurs in the league cup and Nayim from the half way line… why? Because this could have all been prevented.

What was the difference between Arsenal and Liverpool tonight?

About £38 million worth of talent.

1 shot, 1 goal from Torres.

1 shot, 1 goal for Babel.

Yeah, the penalty was debatable. Only if you were a Dutch ref called Pieter Vink. It was a clumsy and an unnecessary tackle from an experienced player.

Liverpools first goal was Senderos’ fault for player watching. True, but how many players score a header from 16 yards out?

The line up from the start stunk of negativity.

Take the midfield

Eboue (RB) Cesc (CM) Flamini (CM) Diaby (CM) Hleb (CM)

Does that look like a balanced midfield to you?

Diaby is not a great player, he scored tonight but any keeper worth his salt would have saved that near post shot.

Hleb? Great feet, but its like being a man down when we go forward because he will not shoot. Good luck playing like that in Milan Hleb, you’ll last a year… still, the ice cream is good?

Flamini, what a fighter. Will he sign? I doubt it. Would you if Milan offered you double?

Theo has been mustard for the last 3 games, what does the boy have to do to get a starting berth?

Eboue has been so bad, it brings a tear to my eye.

He was so fucking abysmal tonight my brother nearly burst a blood vessel screaming at the screen. He can’t pass, he can’t finish… fuck… he can barely control the ball.

Tell me. What right does he have to play at Arsenal? He is atrocious. Bring back Eddie Mcgoldrick, Chris Kiwomya, David Hillier, Glen Helder… any of those shitters would do a better job.

How is this for Arsene humour. We had Eboue and Yaya Toure on trial at the same time and we kept Eboue (The first time we had him on trial in 2004)!

What a fucking joke…

Now onto Adebayor…

Ok, how can you slate a player who has bagged so many goals for you?

Well digest these facts,

  • Marcus Stewart (19 Prem goals second top scorer 1999-00)
  • Kevin Phillips (30 goals in a season top scorer 2000-01)
  • Chris Sutton (19 Goals 1997-98 top scorer)

His first touch is outrageously bad. Why can’t he roll a pass back?

He holds the line like a school kid? I counted him offside 3 times in the first 15 minutes.

His finishing is poor. What possessed him to try and chip it to the far post when he was played through? Thierry, Wrighty, Bergkamp, Anelka, Wiltord… Kaba Diawara would have all buried that.

That my friends is the difference between greatness and going out in the quarters.

With Ade we’ve taken a stone and shined it up… Arsenal should be buying the rough diamonds.

Torres is a rough diamond, everyone knew about him… why weren’t we in for him? He gets the ball and your heart starts racing. Do you get that with Ade? I don’t…

I find it difficult to slate Senderos? Its quite clear he is out of his depth. I love to defend him, but he was exposed twice tonight. Its not good enough, but we’ve all been saying the same thing for years?

Special praise goes out to Theo. Your run was mesmerising, you are showing us all why Arsene spent so much money on you… about time to! Why the whole team felt the need to channel all the balls to Ade is beyond me. Well played though, you’re a keeper for next year, that’s for sure.

I know the Flamster went off through injury, but that is where our problem lies.

Great first 11, shame about the rest.

Still what are you going to do?

Listen to people tell you how you are spoilt by success?

Oh we won a trophy 3 years ago, tonight was ok then… this season was, erm? Progress!

Listen to morons telling you that you sound like a Manc and you should go and support another team?

Fuck being a Manc, take a look at what happens at Milan, Barca, Madrid, Juve and Inter if you don’t win a trophy.

There is no shame in expecting to win things. A winning mentality is a culture and it should be embodied by the fans and the players, just like it is at all the great clubs, countries and businesses.

That this is a knee jerk reaction…

Define Knee Jerk:

An automatic response to something.

Ok, I’ve had since the 16th of February to think about this…

In that time I’ve seen,

2 wins

7 draws

3 losses

Ok, my conclusion?

Its been shit.

If your idea of an automatic response is 52 days, you should go and work for the claims department at Zurich Insurance…

How Arsene knows and will rectify it in the summer…

Get real people, Arsene doesn’t know… because we all knew what was going to happen in the summer… and sure enough, come what April… it has.

Arsenal are loaded, the fans are skint… and we’ve gone another season with fuck all to show for it.

Arsene knows? Does he fuck…

Stay with me, hold the line and on my command, unleash hell!

That’s the battle cry tonight Grovers, straight from the greatest film ever made ‘Gladiator’.

The World make Liverpool favourites, so we have our backs to the wall, just like we did against the scousers in 89, Parma in Copenhagen, Madrid at the Bernabeu and Milan in the San Siro.

The common denominator in all of those games? We won, and with the team fired up after two worthless draws, we can go and win this, shut their obnoxious crowd up and leave them with nothing this season.

Win tonight and we can win at Old Trafford on Sunday and go on and win the double.

What we need today is positive vibes from all our supporters all over the world, the team will feel it if we shout loud enough, this season was meant to be ours, remember the last time we were written off with a young team? It was Real Madrid away in this same competition, we can do it, but you grovers need to do your bit, a fired up day on the blog and it’s ours I feel.

Onto Quaresma, they say we’re on for a cut price deal but I’m not convinced he’ll come to us when the others can pay more for his salary, I’m also not sure why they think because Porto are in trouble he’ll go cheap???

I think he would be perfect for us, as I think Ben Arfa or Benzema would be but if I had a choice, it would be a tough one, we can’t have them both as they have fallen out by all accounts.

I am going to pick my team for tonight but I’m not so sure he’ll agree, but here goes.

Almunia

Eboue Gallas Senderos Clichy

Hleb Cesc Flamini Theo

Robin Ade

I picked Eboue over Kolo as I think he’s a better right back than Kolo, but not a lot between them, I’d favour Hleb out wide with Theo on the other side as one has impact, the other has something to make up for his decision not to shoot on Saturday.

Robin and Ade up front so we do a 4-4-2, I may be tempted to start Robin with Bendtner but he won’t drop Ade, he won’t drop Kolo either so in truth the team will probably look like this.

Almunia

Kolo Gallas Senderos Clichy

Eboue Cesc Flamini Diaby

Ade Hleb

With Robin Theo and Bendtner on the bench with Hoyte.

Check out the reincarnation of the guest blog here and leave your thoughts. Maybe you could drop me an e-mail if you fancy a crack?

It’s a must win tonight, so get plenty of beer and wine inside you, strap yourself in and pray the boys read this!

Have a great night Grovers, we need it, England expects – Lord Nelson on the eve of Trafalgar!

A message to blogsite bullies and Arsenal to have their best week of the season.

by & filed under Uncategorized.

I would just like to set the record straight for a few people that came on yesterday to say if we didn’t agree with you, we would block you, this is simply not true, let me explain.

If a parent beats their kid, it doesn’t stop the kid loving the parent that does it? but if the kid doesn’t like being beaten, there’s nothing wrong with the kid saying ‘hey dad, can you stop beating me, it hurts’ that’s how we all feel with whats gone on this past 3 seasons, we still love the boss, we just question what he does sometimes, this is Arsenal football club, not Arsene football club.

Having an opinion and questioning decisions is what we all do in a pub, respect that, it’s called debate.

This is a blog site yes, freedom of speech it isn’t, if we allowed freedom of speech we would be open to every crank, racist and zealot out there, we protect the majority who are Arsenal fans first and sensible bloggers second, thirdly we are people who like a frank exchange of views.

People who say things like ‘you’re all muppets, go and support Chelsea and don’t be a cunt’ are not welcome here, go to another site.

Yesterday we had 7,433 hits, 322 comments, 2 stories in the NewsNow top 8, one in the previous top 8 and about 6 comments from that lot were from people that aren’t interested in debate or having fun, not a bad return for a Sunday after a draw.

Also sometimes it’s often the same disgruntled person using a different name, we know that because the IP address is the same.

We have more comments and hits that most of the other sites combined, we must be doing something right. There are a small numbers of blogsite bullies out there that have no interest in having fun, so please, if you’re one of them don’t blog here.

We have a great relationship with other sites and often combine with them on joint ventures, we are all Arsenal fans, so once again if you don’t like what we have to offer, go elsewhere, or we’ll block you.

Onto tomorrow, I have a sneaky feeling we’ll have Robin and Tomas back for the run in, if we don’t I won’t be upset if he puts Diaby out there, he had a great game against Milan.

We need to treat this as our last game of the season, shut them down quickly and don’t allow their players room, Torres and Gerrard can hurt us in a heartbeat.

Get our shooting boots on and we can turn them over, ManU without their centre backs won’t be the same team, ask Middlesbrough, this could be the best week of the season, or the worst, I’m going for the latter.

Get at them from the off and we can pave the way for Fernabache in the semi’s.

If you want to get heart from this season, look at Barcelona and Milan, we can do this Grovers, let’s start believing.

2-0 Arsenal, spirit of 89, go Rocky go!
