Mad Ali, Pro Subs, Crazy Mputu vid and loads of news…!

Good morning grovers!

I didn’t drink last night in the hope of being fresh for today. A nice early night I thought. Trouble is, I must have pissed off the drinking gods because the sound track to my night was foxes fucking in my back garden… my god they are loud.

Its such a busy morning of news so lets get cracking!

Wenger talks about the potential signing of Mputu. He doesn’t sound like he is being signed for the ‘now’, so don’t get your hopes up. I found a video on you tube you should check out! If we sign as new keeper I want one who celebrates like the the this one! Watch on after Mputu’s goal, magic…

Gallas talks about his lust for trophies this year. He was the O2 player of the month on this month. Very well deserved Willy T!

There is some unsubstantiated bullshit linking Gilberto with the spuds on a website I have never heard of before. Has anyone else noticed that Ramos seems to want to sign all our players? Diaby, Denilson, Traore, Nikki B, and now Bertie… he has barely been there a month!

Wenger tells Lehmann he is staying this winter. ANR reckon this is because Almunia is a clown and didn’t extend his arm fully for the goal against Newcastle. He studied the replays and that is what he came up with. I think the words ‘head’ and ‘shoved up your own ass’ could be used to sum up Myles Palmer sometimes.

I’ll be giving a run down of possible transfer exits on Monday, so stay tuned for that!

Wenger, being in a particularly chatty mood had this to say about the accusations from Newcastle over play acting.

Big Al puts his name forward for England as next year he qualifies for citizenship. I think he is just trying to pressure the Spanish FA into calling him up. You’d have to think his chances are limited as Spain do seem to have an abundance of quality Keepers.

Wenger has a lot to say with regards to foreign quotas and the proposition of professional substitutes. A truly fantastic argument put forward by and extremely rational and educated man. It is pleasure to read the opinion of a manager who understands the consequences of rash decision making, especially when the Mirror tries to turn Wengers argument that an Englishman should be employed by the F.A on its head here.

If you have any interest in the mutterings of ex Arsenal flop Aliadiere, read here. In the article he talks about needing to move a club where he knows he will start no matter how badly he plays. He talks about not feeling a responsibility to score goals even though he knows that is why Boro are down the bottom of the league. He claims he didn’t join Boro to score goals, he joined to enjoy himself and play every week! IS HE FUCKING MAD!

So much news to digest I think I am going to have to take a nap!

I think tomorrow will be less challenging than the Newcastle and Villa games. As someone mentioned yesterday, we will have learned from the mistakes we made mid week and hopefully dish out a spanking to a poor Boro team.

I would have taken 7 points last Friday, I don’t know about you guys!

A more in depth preview tomorrow!

Happy Saturday!


Arsenal make offer to Mputu

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Apparently we have offered Mputu a contract and the asking price is £500k this seems like a typical Arsenal signing but it doesn’t get me excited, he has until Monday, other rumours are an £8mil bid for Nzogbia, this was the guy that gifted Ade’s goal on Wednesday, so I can’t see anything there either.

I’m really pissed that Flamini is out as is Cesc, given that Cesc was supposed to be fit for the Villa game, I’m amazed he is still out, the good news is that boy wonder and Diaby are back in training next week.

We could do with having Robin back.

Other strange news is that Rosicky and Kolo think we played well against Newcastle, still it shows how far we have come this season that a draw against Newcastle away is seen as a disaster.

Not a lot happening today and nothing much will until we stuff Middlesbrough on Sunday.

Have a nice day and ignore all the rumours.

Who would you Grovers like us to buy? don’t forget Arsene reads this blog everyday, he said so after the Newcastle game, or at least I thought he did!

Ade commits, Wenger is a Fascist and Arsenal receive reality check

Yep he said it! Don’t ask me what goes on in his head but a few more goals like last night and I hope he does stay for life.

The score last night was probably a fair result, albeit that we were piss poor, but we were piss poor as a result of disgraceful refereeing and unbelievably biased broadcasting, it was outrageous, and one sided.

We saw Wenger at the start in his suit, we didn’t see him again until the end, when he has his big jacket on, we saw him three times, we saw the fat
obnoxious one time after time, with his filthy eating habits, the fat pig, we saw him more than we saw the game.

The camera continued to pan over their miserable fans, who were quiet throughout the game, until that is they scored, we didn’t see the Arsenal fans once, not once.

The ref kept giving them free kicks and gave us nothing, they tried to kick us off the pitch and they almost succeeded.

Gallas got kicked over on the edge of their area, the ref had his back to it, looked round and saw Gallas in a heap and waved at him to get up, he amazingly did all this without even consulting the lino.

We on the other hand were poor, fantastic Adebayor strike, fantastic, but I thought Rosicky and Diarra were poor, Gilberto continues to look like a
player that now wants to leave, Almunia kept kicking the ball upfield rather than throwing it to a player, the ball was lobbed up all night and we forgot how to pass.

Boy did we miss Hleb, Cesc and Flamini, why Rosicky runs over for a short corner I don’t know, Eboue and Rosicky standing next to each other just
leaves us a player short in the goal area, Wenger should just tell them.

Okay, that said and done we are 4 points clear and I’d have taken that last week.

6 ahead of Chelsea, 7 ahead of Liverpool and 25 ahead of top4tottenham, Juande Ramos has really made a difference, so Jaunde or ‘one day’ thanks for going there.

Eduardo just looks hopelessly out of his depth and really doesn’t like defending, I hope that’s just ‘first seasonitus’ but we do look a little inept up front sometimes and it’s worrying.

In other news. Arsene Wenger reveals his xenophobic side, by stating that only an Englishman should be considered for the role of England coach.

‘You know what makes me sad? I am more nationalistic than you because you want to go for (Jose) Mourinho, for (Fabio) Capello – I am the only one who goes for an Englishman.’

You know what Wenger, keep your anti foreigner rants to yourself…

Next up Middlesbrough, let’s hope we have our midfield back!
