Diego and Nasri linked, Arfa a banker and Cesc wants Villa.

by & filed under Uncategorized.

So, Diego has been put forward to replace Hleb in the event he leaves, and frankly, he needs to, Diego would be a perfect replacement, he’s pacey, dribbles like Hleb but unlike Hleb he can finish and at 23 is four years younger.

Nasri has again been linked to partner Cesc and in the event of not getting Barry – my first choice, I would snap him up.

Cesc has said that David Villa would be the ideal signing, I would expect something to happen there, especially as Cesc is about to sign an extension, go get him Arsene, he said he wants to come. Who do we get rid of? good question, I would have him there to play the same role as Eduardo, same size and build and we still don’t know if Eduardo will return the same as he was when he left.

Vela will come back as a forward and not a winger so we will have a lot of forwards, but we’ll need them, it’s a long season and we want to compete on all fronts, so we’ll need them.

Matty the greedy ingrate has centre stage today and had this to say in the Sun.

‘If Arsenal had offered me a contract last summer I would still be their player now. Last July I told Arsenal I wanted to extend my contract so, of course, I would have signed if they had offered me a deal . . . but they didn’t. They said they wanted me to prove myself first’

More fool Arsenal, if they thought he was good enough for one more chance, he was good enough for a contract, you could see in August he was going to be awesome, he also said he left on the same money he joined on when he was 20, so that shows how useless the board were in negotiating that one.

Still he’s gone and we should move on, get some of the above in Arsene and we’ll soon forget them.

Now we know Vela won’t be a winger, Arfa must now be a shoe in, add him to the above list with a nasty center back and we’ll win the lot next year.

Get your cheque book out Arsenal! Have a good ‘un Grovers!

Does Arsene want Tom Huddlestone? Sammy on for £14million!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Good morning Grovers!

Just a quick news round up for you!

Carlos Vela is coming home! Arsene Wenger reckons he is an ‘Eduardo’ type player and that is where he sees him next year. So, no Villa, no Benzema and no Huntelaar… sorry to ruin you day!

This next Wenger quote could really knark you,

‘I think a huge player is better than a huge name,’

‘You have huge names who produce very little at the moment.’

I just can’t believe Wenger would sign Tom Huddlestone, the hugest player I could think of with Prem experience? Ok, he scored a good penalty for the under 21’s but he will always be a fat Spud to me…

Just kidding of course.

Arsene, we don’t want a big name signing for the sake of it… We do however want players who can produce immediately. Give us Arfa, give us Barry or give us another 3 Sagna’s… good players of a suitable age, doing it now. That is all we ask.

Talking of ‘now’ players, how many of you would be pleased with Samir Nasri? If you haven’t already, I strongly recommend you watch his you tube video… the guy is pure magic. His coach had this to say,

‘If there is a big offer for Samir, then of course he will leave.’

He 21 years old, skilful and he has an eye for goal – a very Wenger like signing, so let’s wait and see!

Ok, that is your lot!

We normally get the nut bags on at the weekends, this definitely has nothing to do with the fact school children gain access to the internet at weekends, so just a quick warning…

If you don’t have something sensible to say, don’t waste your energy typing it. It will just drop into the spam bin and it wont even get read.

If you are a first time poster, bear with me today, I will be in and out all day so it may take a while for your comment to get on!

Have a brilliant Saturday Grovers!

Arsenal to sign best in Prem + Le Champ of the Season announced!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Ok we had a lot of debate a couple of days ago when discussing Le Chump, today is the turn of the player/staff member/inanimate object we all liked best, Le Groves first Le champ of the season.

We thought long and hard about this one and took all your comments on board, so here is the short list.

In no particular order.


Any excuse to bust this photo out again!

Eduardo – Eduardo was so unlucky to have had the break when he did, he was just beginning to establish himself and fate stepped in, but we all saw enough to want more and next season we have no doubt he’ll be back and in contention, Eduardo we really appreciate what you’ve done this season.

Gael Clichy – This kid has it all, he stepped out of Cashley’s shadow and made the left back slot his own, now he is arguably the best left back in football (and with us for an extra two years), he gives us so much down the left side it’s difficult to ignore this him, great improvement this year and unfortunate against the brummies, we were robbed and so were you.

Sagna – What can you say about someone that no-one had heard of? That he could be so good, well done the Grimster, great spot! This guy gets nominated for his awesome displays and the way he acted when his brother sadly died, both he and Gael made the premiership team of the season, so well done the full backs.

How Van Persie sees Lewin…

Gary Lewin – Gary gets on the list for his speed in saving Eduardo’s leg, if it wasn’t for his quick thinking Eduardo may have lost his leg, it was that serious, so well done Gary. Unfortunately you spoiled all that, the day you saved John Terry and his serpent like tongue, so for that you’ll have to wait another year, but noble effort and we are forever in your debt.

Cesc – Nothing can be said about this young man that hasn’t already been said, except maybe, ‘I love you’ there I said it, he’s over 16 so there’s no law against it! He is Mr Arsenal and next year should be captain, his marauding runs and tireless workrate are unmatched and when he scores, he goes nuts and we all adore him for that, but what really puts this guy forward for me was his loyalty when the boss was on the rack, he came straight out and said he loved the club, the fans and the manager, shame others didn’t take note.

Adebayor – I worried about this one because I didn’t want to see Ethan’s posts, but a nomination for scoring 30 goals is warranted, he’s still got a lot to prove though so this year is maybe too soon to get Le Champ, but well done all the same, now go and prove you love the Arsenal.

And the winner is?… I have to split it 3 ways Cesc, Sagna and Gael Clichy; all have been warriors and all are Arsenal through and through and we really love you for that.

Congratulations guys, have Peroni on Le Grove.

Arsene, make sure you give Cesc the armband next season and then it’s job done.
