Sagna, Kolo, Gallas and Clichy back and Cesc asks for Eto’o at the Grove.

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Well there’s a surprise eh? the first choice back four all fit and raring to go.

Credit to Sagner as he has had a family tragedy and he returns to help out the team, well done that man.

Cesc was asked by the Telegraph that if he could have only one player at Arsenal who would it be? He says Eto’o and he thinks he would form a lethal partnership with Adebayor.

I wonder if that will put a rocket up sick notes arse and get him back a little sooner? But there again, isn’t Eto’o a bit of a sick note as well?

Perhaps there’s method in his madness, as long as they’re not both injured at the same time, or does he mean forming a lethal partnership with Robin?

Gallas escapes a ban for toeing Nani goat up the arse but nobody at the FA mentions the disgusting chants of the Manc crowd, so no change there.

No racist chanting and no anti semetic chanting, all punishable with banishment and death, but Paedophile chanting is not only allowed by the BBC and the FA, but by doing nothing, it’s actually encouraged. Don’t misunderstand me here all the above is unacceptable, but the last one is worse, ask anyone with children.

Gallas explains the reason for our defeat, forget it Billy, you were all shit and half the team were not and never will be good enough, draw a line under it and go beat Milan.

People are talking about Milan like they are a shitty team of old boys, correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t they the current Champions league holders?

I had an interesting email from a Mr Kupelian who was so incensed by earlier Manc chanting he wrote to David Gill, and surprise, surprise, never got a reply, so this week he has written to the Commander of the Stretford Divisional Area of Greater Manchester Police.

Nice one Mr Kupelian but don’t hold your breath, they can do no wrong up there.

So one more day to go and we can erase the result at Old Trafford, at least I hope we can!

Go 4-4-2 and give them everything you got boys, this game is so, so, important in our quest to win the Premier league, it will set us on our way.

Lose it at your peril!

Have a great day Grovers, strangely it feels like the day before the European Cup final in Paris did! let’s hope the result is better.

BBC television, you’re disgusting arse kissers to a team with no morals.

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Let me start with the Match of the day commentary team that hears no evil, sees no evil and speaks no evil …to Manchester United that is.

The Red nose drunk wants Gallas banned the day after our reserves get tonked by his ‘in debt club’s’ hugely expensive team of night club tart shaggers.

Moral men ManU and most of them married, but they are good at 1 minute silences.

Last week we all had the biggest laugh of the season when Man City beat the famous ManU at Old Trafford, we all had to sit through days and days of Munich heroes, blah, blah and how the fans should respect the minutes silence before kick off.

Then we hear how their wonderful fans united together to show respect for the Munich disaster and the men who died in it. Good going I don’t have a problem with that.

Touching, then we watch Lineker, Shearer and fellow muppet Hansen ignore the foul mouth Mancs calling our manager a paedophile, over and over again, and those tossers sit there and tell the world how badly we’re playing and how good the Mancs are, that was the important thing to talk about, hypocrites.

The following day ‘Sarah’s’ law’ gets passed, Sarah, in case they didn’t know was a victim of a real paedophile, they disgust me. And the BBC say nothing, they obviously think the Gallas kick was worse than the filth that comes from their inbred foul mouths, and broadcast it around the world.

It really isn’t entertainment to sing about paedophiles, especially when Arsene Wenger is a family man with a child of his own, they are all wicked beyond belief, I hope they are proud of themselves for ignoring what they heard. Well done Gary Lineker, Alan Hanson and Alan Shearer all good family men themselves, no doubt.

So now I’ve thanked the 3 monkeys from the BBC, I can talk about Arsenal.

Milan next up, minus a keeper so that’s something, if we’re right we should have a team something like this tomorrow.

Toure Senderos Gallas Clichy
Hleb Cesc Flamini Rosicky
Eduardo Adebayor

The other option at right back would be Eboue, but I’m not sure if his ban extends to Europe, I hope it does though.

I expect us to run at them from the off, knowing they will tire at some point it’s important not to let them score first and sit back on it.

It’s important not to let them score at all, we all know about away goals in this competition.

I think we’ll be back to our best because I think the team would have been stung by the criticism and can’t possibly be that bad again.

I won’t make the obvious statements like ‘the fans need to get behind the team’ because the fans get behind the team even when we’re being spanked 4 nil or 5-1 but we may have to be patient, this is a wily old team and they know how to score two goals in injury time.

So let’s hope the ‘injuries’ clear up, the team has dusted itself down and they are ready for the game of their lives.

If they can’t get up for this one, they probably need to do something else.

Great day yesterday Grovers, record comments for both Saturday and Sunday, keep ‘em coming.

Humiliated and Exposed – Arsene clearly does not know.

by & filed under Uncategorized.

The teams were announced and I wasn’t that surprised to see the Mancs missing Ronaldo and Tevez. The team Arsene put out didn’t look too bad but I was a bit concerned about our full backs being exposed. Traore has been shit in every game he has played this year and Hoyte, though improved is still a bit of a liability.

I don’t want to give a blow by blow account of action, so I’ll just list my thoughts as they occurred.

The passing was off big time. It is surprising how Gilberto’s inclusion fucks up any rhythm the team normally has.

The first goal we conceded came from a corner… Nikki B once again failed to clear properly from a corner (Never let the man in our box again…), Anderson nodded it into the box and Rooney out jumped Hoyte (surprise) and nodded past Lehmann. Could Lehmann have done better? I thought so.

The second goal was a Nani creation. He cut the ball back, mugging Hoyte… crossed the ball in allowing ManU’s top goalscorer Gallas to bang in the second.

The Third goal happened when Traore was out of position, roasted by Anderson who slipped a cross over the head of Gallas allowing Nani to slip in.

Great defending. Thank God Arsene is only resting Sagna and Clichy. Those two are truly invaluable.

The forth goal went in when Senderos miss judged a cross and Fletcher powered a header home, I am sure one of the dreadful duo got done by Nani again…

Kolo looked out of sorts big time. Gallas was poor as well. Could Senderos be and option for Milan?

Lehmann looked dodgy as well, I hope he can learn how to kick the ball by Wednesday.

Eboue is a shite player, a failed right back turned failed winger. He offers us nothing, bar bringing the name of the club into disrepute. I am glad he got sent off today and not in an important Champions league game or crucial Prem match. He is a silly cunt, what was he thinking when he chopped the Manc player down? Out of control and in my mind he should fuck off somewhere else because he just doesn’t have enough talent to merit his baggage.

I have to say I do feel sorry for players like Hoyte, Bendtner and Traore. They are like cannon fodder… Out of their depth big time and only played when it doesn’t really matter about the result. Bendtner needs to take a long hard look at himself, he has a huge ego which isn’t justified.

This really hurt. I don’t care what anyone says, I can’t stand the fact we have been humiliated by two of our rivals in the space of a month. My text inbox is filled with Manc texts. I even had a spud fan text me at half time,

‘Do you think ManU will score more than we did against you in the cup?’

I hate Spurs fan, but at half time, I was wondering the same.

I feel sorry for the 9000 traveling Arsenal fans. Try telling them its ok because we were resting players for Milan.

I don’t buy the ‘resting players’ argument either (and if you don’t believe they were rested, wait until Wednesday). They are paid extortionate amounts of money to play a sport they enjoy, they should be happy to be battling on so many fronts. If Chelsea and ManU can do it, why can’t we? If you don’t have the squad to compete for 4 trophies, maybe we should purchase a few players with the £80 million we have in the bank? Everyone knew there were 4 trophies at the start of the season, right? It would be nice to get a big club mentality now we have our shiny new stadium.

What makes this all an even bigger joke is the fact Arsenal had the cheek to put season ticket prices up again. We pay for the most expensive tickets in the world and can’t even fight on 4 fronts? Its like buying a Ferrari and finding out your one only has 2 gears.

Just one final bitch. What were we thinking of letting Diarra go? We didn’t sign a replacement, even though it was blatantly obvious Gilberto was not good enough to replace Flamini. We could have done with him today. Diarra was a big headed egotist, but we could have waited till the end of the season before letting him go, who cares if he sulked, he signed a contract. Surely Arsene’s priorities lie with Arsenal, not Diarra’s happiness? 

Actually, I lied because I have another gripe. The BBC commentary. How much do those sorry, paid up, Rooney loving pricks hate Arsenal? They defend every ManU foul, they rave about every ManU pass and just generally wax lyrical about them. We muted them. Singing Peado songs at Arsene Wenger after kicking up such a fuss over the Busby Babes memorial reeks of hypocrisy. The Manc fans should be ashames, so should the BBC for not mentioning it.

Blogger Geoff rang up Talk Sport once to ask why they spend so much time talking about ManU, they told him it was because they are told to talk about them the most. ITV screen more Manc games than anyone else and it would seem the BBC are following the pack. MoTD pundits have been putting us down all year, and they loved today.

Back onto the game.

The question’s that need to be asked are these:

Will this affect team moral?

Will Hleb and Cesc recover from this?

Will Toure and Gallas sort it out by Wednesday?

I am sorry if this article has come across negative but at the end of the day, I am not here to blow smoke up Arsene’s ass. Everything went wrong today, and prioritising competitions is not a guarantee for success.

Please don’t come on here and post ‘Arsene knows’ comments, because he got it seriously wrong yesterday and being an Arsenal fan of 20 years justifies my right to the opinion that sometimes Arsene gets it hugely wrong. He did today, I am devastated and like I said earlier, 9000 dedicated Arsenal fans trekked up to Old Trafford and braved to cold to watch that. They should get a refund out of the players wages, I’m sure it will work out less of a hit on their pockets than it did on the fans.

That said, I still have some positivity in me!

Read the silver lining(s) below!

  • This was a hugely understrength team.
  • No Clichy, Sagna, Flamini, Almunia, Adebayor, Rosicky, Cesc or RvP. That is a shed load of talent missing.
  • We didn’t drop any points. Ask a Manc what they’d prefer, 5 points clear or a Quarter final place in the F.A Cup… most wont pick the latter.
  • The 5-1 humiliation against Spurs G’d us up, it didn’t affect our confidence at all, it just made us more hungry. Could this be another kick up the arse?
  • After seeing Ade, the Flamster and Senderos running around like lunatics, I am sure the other key players are not injured. Its not insider knowledge, its logic.
  • Finally… it wasn’t Barnsley.

We’re out of two cups, humiliated twice… lets hope things are put right mid week because I’m starting to get that ground hog day feeling.
