Eddy tells us how big Tone would have done it. Wenger on a downer… good!

So Arsene says it was the worst week of his life, good, it was mine too, so at least he was feeling the same as we all were, difference is, he had some kind of control and we didn’t.

He kind of said that he wasn’t planning on buying Villa, but he wasn’t planning on buying anyone yet, so that could mean he may buy him.

I met with our ‘Eddy’ last night, and again a top man, he said to me that if big Tone was in the side in any of those games he would have said, you go there, you go there and you shut the fuck up! He said that Tony Adams would always shut up shop and make sure everyone else did.

On that basis we should have him back as defensive coach, either that or sign Micah and a few others.

He also hinted at the captaincy role and reviewing it but I really believe the issue is bad defending and not bad captaincy.

Anyway I think he’ll play Theo up top with Robin, and we’ll stuff them 5 zip, all us, too little, too late, but nice to see all the same!

Have a good ‘un Grovers.

Which Arsenal superstars wife did Le Grove meet in the bar…?

by & filed under Uncategorized.

So this new sensation is apparently destined for Arsenal, well my opinion is it’s a no deal situation. So worth no comment, so I won’t.

Big Phil’s dad is saying he’ll bounce back from fucking up at Liverpool, which is nice as it only cost us the Champions league and I’d hate to see him upset. So good luck in your rehabilitation Phil.

So last night, I’m in a bar and in pops Eddy McGoldrick, has a ding dong with his wife and leaves her in the bar with me and my mate, well, what a nice lady, she then tells me that Eddy is still a mad gooner, so Eddy, forgive me you are a star, I thought you were a Palace fan, and your wife is a real lady, so go and make up with her, it’s rare to meet a bird that talks Arsenal as much as me.

Sorry I was off line yesterday, I missed all the comments, I’m still away but I’ll be back somewhat today.

So today we wait for the fall out re the Manc game, I have a feeling he’ll try some of the kids, what do you think?

I would like to think he’ll play the Norwegian kid, but we all know he won’t!

Have a great day Grovers.


Do we kid ourselves about the brat pack? £25mill Brazilian striker linked!

Sorry for the delayed post, I’ve been experiencing technical difficulties over in Spain!

Well, yesterdays ‘come and get me’ plea from David Villa certainly raised the spirits but at the same time there wasn’t a Grover out there that really believed it would happen, though, never say never.

The last time the sun carried a ‘come and get me’ headline to Arsenal was when George Graham was in Charge and a certain John Barnes, who played for Watford, begged George to take him. George didn’t think the risk was worth it and John went to Liverpool where he went on to become the worlds best player for me he was better than Ronaldo, he really could change a game. George also had two youngsters, Andy Cole and Kevin Campbell; he sold Andy Cole because he thought was Kevin Campbell was the better prospect. So thanks for that George!

The moral of the story Arsene, is when a great player comes knocking, open the door, learn from the ‘Barnes’ mistake.

I thought Torres might struggle over here; he hasn’t, so that will tell you something about Villa, Huntelaar maybe like a Kuyt signing, so if I had to, it would be Villa. I think if we’d have had Torres in the side we would have won the Carling Cup and still been in the other 3. I don’t think Phil will become the player we want and Eboue is not a winger, Rosicky is a great player but his medical record is worse than Darren Anderton’s, so I would get shot of those three.

Lehmann has to go as his attitude to his own team is both appalling and damaging, so that’s 4 players, we need to buy replacements because we don’t have enough coming through the ranks and we were woefully short this season.

A lot has been made of the reserves and the talent coming through, but it wasn’t us contesting the final of the youth cup was it. I do find it confusing, academy, under 17’s, under 18’s, and reserve, but the two who stood out for me were Murphy and Wilshere, I wonder how long they’ll take to filter through, I mean they didn’t hang about with Cesc did they.

Finally, we are being linked with 17 goal striker, Amauri. He has a £25million price tag and it is rumoured Madrid, Liverpool and Juve are also interested. Apparently we have made it clear we will pay him £3.2 million a year. I’ll leave you guys to chew the fat off that one!
