Sorry to end the week on a downer but to coin the words of a former Arsenal player, listening to Talk Shite last night, I almost ran my Aston off the road.
Coming back from visiting my very sick dad in his nursing home, I was a bit fragile, but when I turned on the wireless and listened to Muppet Adrian Durham asking Ian Wright if Arsenal fans would feel prouder if the team that won in Milan had more English players I was aghast.
I know this is heresy Grovers, after all it’s Wrighty, but read on please, no one is bigger than Arsenal football club.
Ian Wright, you should have immediately called him a Xenophobic racist twat, but you didn’t, then you actually started reminiscing about your Rocky Rocastle, Micky Thomas and Tony Adams days, then you said the Spuds game was the biggest, and it’s not the same for the foreign boys.
Are you insane? Are you a racist and a xenophobe as well your stupid mate Adrian?
Foreigners eh? Why don’t we get rid of our team of young talent, why don’t we get rid of Wenger, he’s foreign, why don’t we have a passport check at the turnstiles to see if any of our fans are foreign.
Bergkamp and Henry will always been seen as legends, unlike the opinion of a selected turd that phoned you up.
Fabregas, Gallas, Kolo, Ade, Flamini have every bit as much passion as the teams from the 80’s and 90’s the fact that they are challenging for the Premier league and Champions league shows that, the teams that you played for were mid table, Cup teams. You could get pshyced up for one game but sustaining it was a different kettle of fish.
You may not have noticed on Tuesday, but Theo was playing for us! We would all like to see some English talent, but Chelsea and ManU bought it all, Chelsea are bankrolled with dodgy ‘foreign’ money and ManU are £850 million in debt.
I watched your entire career from a box, so contributed to your wages, I can remember you playing under 2 English managers in George Graham (British) and Bruce Rioch, I won’t count the caretakers, how exciting was that? David Hillier, Eddy McGoldrick, Ian Selley, hey I could go on but I’m already falling asleep.
Since Wenger has been here and brought in young foreign talent, I have never enjoyed my football so much, and I, like Wenger, don’t see a passport, I see an Arsenal player.
Of course most Chelsea and ManU players are foreign anyway, but Talk Shite don’t consider Irish, Welsh or Scots foreign for some reason, but they need reminding it’s the English Premier league, not the Great British and Irish premier league.
Finally one player we did want was SWP but you advised him to go to Chelsea and sit on the bench, so please don’t tell us we don’t try for English players.
Thierry Henry hated Spurs and was never on the losing side, Freddie got so wound up he got sent off at Shite Hart lane.
No one is bigger than Arsenal Ian, don’t try and make out any of us give a rats arse about nationalities, we don’t, we’re Arsenal fans.
Ian I loved you when you played for us and I still do, it’s in my blood, but yesterday you disappointed me.
Onto a couple of lighter notes, congratulations to Bud and the gang for taking over the Telegraph comments section yesterday, your comments kept many people amused last night! Check out the link. Most of the comments were from Grovers pretending to be Spuds, very amusing.
Finally, Stupid from the comments found this link yesterday, click on it and you could be the proud owner of a commemorative Spud Carling cup watch worth a staggering £125! I wonder if they’ll do another one for getting beaten by a weakened PSV?
