Has Arsene taken biggest gamble of career to date?

by & filed under Uncategorized.

So yesterday saw a defining point in Arsenals season.

Arsene Wenger chose not to sign Jonathan Woodgate, instead deciding to place his faith in Big Phil.

Is this the biggest gamble of his career?

Well, can you think of a more important decision over the last ten years? Has the pressure ever been higher? Has the Title race ever been this close? Have the fans ever been so unanimous in thinking we need cover at centre back!

As fans we are craving Silverware like Ashley Cole craves blonde single Mums… Arsene knows this.

Arsene also knows he ‘could’ have snapped up a player who is not cup tied, experienced in the Champions League, English and talented and all for under £10 million. Instead, he has joined our rivals up the road leaving Big Phil to Marshall the back four for the rest of the month.

Don’t be fooled though guys, remember this is a player with huge injury problems (an average of 13 games a season), a penchant bashing people of alternate race and a player who failed to make the grade at Real Madrid.

Am I bovered? Of course not! This is the second big decision Arsene has had to make this transfer window. The first being whether or not to re-sign Anelka. Wenger decided not to, and so far the decision has been vindicated… Ade has been beating the shit of some poor cows backside with a banjo all season now!

We have allowed Arsene to guide our season so far and lets be honest, he is doing a grand job, so the only decent thing to do would be to let him proceed with ‘Project Kid ‘, and to back the team! Big Phil needs your support if he is going to get through this!

Next up in the cup be the Dirty Reds from Salford, just our luck! Should be a cracker though and it could have an impact on the title race (Eboue could damage Ronaldo, that would be unfortunate?). In injury news, King Kolo is not long term, Rosicky will be back soon and RvP starts training this morning! So all is rosy in the world of Arse!

So today, let the comments section be a forum of positivity and remember, to receive all your Arsenal silverware dreams this season, please e-mail the link to this blog to 5 people… and er, donate some cash!

Happy Tuesday, here’s to a 4-0 drubbing of the Toon!


Gouffran’s a shoe in, Deco’s not and Wenger says he’ll buy

by & filed under Uncategorized.

All the press have said that Arsenal have paid £5mil for Gouffran, but Arsenal.com say nothing, but I think this story comes up too often for there to be no truth in it.Sportingo say Arsenal are favourites to land £17 mil Deco and then immediately say ‘no we’re not’ I don’t know why I get suckered into that website, they just come up with crap, get you excited and then say, no chance, what’s the point?

Ade says he was trying to motivate Bendtner and it went wrong, so he’ll learn from that, saying ‘I’m on cos your shit’ may work in Togo Ade but with the Danes you may have to have a little re-think, try ‘get in there son’ next time!

Man U are reportedly trying to take over the Luke Freeman deal, but I would think at 15 years old, Wenger has that little deal tied up.

I listened to Talk shite yesterday and actually heard Wenger saying that if Kolo was injured, he would buy! Great news but who?

We put some suggestions forward yesterday, Lescott is a possibility with the press, I can’t see Everton selling him though.

Sad to see the spuds crash out of the FA Cup as ‘One day Ramos’ never loses cup games, so a bit disappointing there, still let’s hope they bounce back soon, great cups are not the same without Tottenham in them… well to laugh at anyway.

I did laugh my bollocks off yesterday, their fans are like Homer Simpson, going nuts one day and Doooh the next! Thank god spurs are there to make us all laugh.

Newcastle are back for us to stuff again tomorrow so a big thank you to King Kev for taking over when he did, just in time to kick start our season.

Finally I find it outrageous that Arsenal are trying to close down blogs sites, do they want to control the world? Trying to copy write the word Gooner is one thing, but taking over free speech sites smacks of George Orwell.

Back off Arsenal and leave the fans with something that’s free.

Have a great day Grovers and let’s see some suggestions for Center back.

Ade uses his head… …again! Woodgate would be perfect.

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Normal service was resumed at the Grove with Ade using his head positively this time as he weaved through the Geordie defence in style and got two fantastic goals that won us the game and got us through to the next round.

We all know what happened the last time Ade used his head, so Super Nick for one was very relieved!

There were mixed feelings on Theo’s performance, Pedro thinks he wasn’t that great, I thought he looked good, but like I say, he’s still a baby and will be a great player, I wish that Wenger would just play players where they’re good and not out of position all the time.

Theo is one of those players that will always divide opinion, but I have no doubt he will become one of the greats.

Rosicky, Diaby and Hleb are all played wide and they’re all central midfielders and Eboue is played wide and he’s a full back.

The only time I’d do that, is if I needed cover or I had two wingers and I wanted to swap them during a game.

Woodgate snubs Newcastle for Spurs eh, what a twat! but he is just the sort of player we could do with, especially now with Kolo a doubt.

It really is looking like no one is coming in which is hugely disappointing but it looks like Micah Richards has been offered a take it or leave it deal, now that’s where Arsene should act, offer Gilberto or Lehmann plus cash, right now and I’ll have money Sven would take it, that way no one loses face.

Too simple by far!

Sorry about the two abusive comments yesterday, I got rid of them as soon as I saw them, I even let past abusers back on if they add to the debate, but I’m watching them.

Have a great day Grovers and pray we get Preston at home in the next round, here’s to 3 more points on Tuesday!
