City are a bigger club says Ade-the-whore, John Lukic speaks, and everything in the garden looks Rosey!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

So Togo twit Adebayor says that Man Shitty are a bigger club than Arsenal, hmmm, so why do they live in a council house then you dimwit?

People often forget that after the Commonwealth games that City rented the council stadium and moved out of Maine Road, so it's much easier to do what they want without having to pay for a stadium. Plus they sold their arses to a rich Arab for a glass of mint tea and a lamb Kebab.

Unlike us of course, that had to spend £350mil on out new stadium, still that debt has almost gone and we will soon be buying players for fun. Not that we need them as our team will win the EPL and ECL this season without spending money, you ask the boss.

John Lukic entered the goal keeping fray today and said we needed a top class keeper as we wouldn't achieve silverware without one, he suggested Reina, Valdes or Julio Cesar as great options for us, but that won't happen as we have Almunia and Fabianski, and for all you doubting Thomas's out there beware, Almunia will be the keeper we wanted and we save a shedload of money. And if for some reason Almunia has an off day or is injured, then in will step Fabianski, Poland's number one, or he soon will be.

We are almost sorted out at the back now, we have just bought Squillaci, not that I know much about him, but the boss does, and as no one else was trying to buy him I suspect we have unearthed another gem in the Koscielny mode, Djourou should stay uninjured this season (for some strange reason) and I believe that Sagna and Clichy have been having crossing lessons and extra training, defensive lessons will take place during the course of the season.

We managed to get 2 games out of Robin this season before his first injury and although Holland got a whole world cup out of him, fear not, because we have Nikki Bendtner waiting in the wings, once of course he recovers from his groin operation.

I was getting really excited watching Frimpong this season, until he got injured, but I wasn't too bothered as we had Denilson as back up, once he gets over his injury.

At least Song and Diaby are now fit, I'm not sure if either are DM's though, as the boss has Song down as a centre back and Diaby seems to be playing as an attacking one.

Diaby on form for me is a thing of beauty, I hope he plays more on form than not because when he's not up for it, he seems to give the ball away a lot.

Still we are second in the league and haven't been beaten yet and considering we have played two teams from the Northwest, that is some achievement, I just hope we play a strong side against the spuds and that Arsene realises how much beating them means to us, Arsene, we gain nothing from losing, put out a side that can at least get a replay, that much you owe the fans.

In truth we won't really know if we are ready to challenge until we play the chavs, and that will happen soon enough, I believe we now have a couple of centre backs that can out bully an ageing Drogba. Terry and Lumphard are getting on a bit and if we can have a few more first time shots then who knows eh? Maybe Arsene, in fact maybe Arsene Knows Best!

See if anyone gets that.

Not a lot to talk about today other than Wayne Rooney's private life, so have fun Grovers, fill your boots, everything in the Arsenal garden is rosey!

Arshavin admits he hasn't scored a spectacular goal in years, but he is more effective.

This is something that we always seem to do to our players, we sign them because they score wonderful goals and have tricks and flicks in abundance, then we make them pass the ball to death.

Remember the youtube clips of Nasri? He looked like a young George Best, then he joined us and although a nice player, he didn't look like the Nasri in the youtube clips, now I always put that down to the different leagues, but after the Arshavin comments, I'm thinking maybe it's the Arsenal style, and if so, why do we buy them in the first place?

I remember watching a young Martin Hayes make his debut under George Graham, 23 I think, we all said, cor who's that winger, he's good and what a shot, the bloke next to me said, 'don't worry son, George will beat that out of him'

Ha, ha, I say the same thing to Pedro if someone has a first time shot, remember Theo, he was scoring for fun at Southampton at 15, he joined us and then forgot where the goal is, yes I realise how tough our league is, but it now looks as though Theo has remembered what he used to do and the shots are coming back, it also looks like Nasri is doing what he did at Marseille again, so on that basis I hope that Andre has been watching, take on the shot more often Andre and it will happen.

The four at Liverpool were all pretty much run at hit, first time stuff, don't think about it.

Chamakh has said how intense he finds training, the Premier league and English football, he said they play at 100mph and the ball never goes out of play, if it's that hard, then why don't England dominate football?

Talking of England, Gooner Defoe scored a hatrick and we beat Bulgaria 4 zip, good news for England, but I think that the FA and Umbro have got a massive cheek changing their kit again, especially after the world cup fiasco, they should give it away, not rip the fans off again, shame on you Brooking you greedy sod.

I know it's boring without football, maybe it's time to take a month off over Christmas and bung all the internationals in that period, if you are good enough you'll play, if you're not bothered you won't, who cares anyway, these stupid little breaks are screwing up club football and if you're like me, that's the important one.

Have a great day Grovers, next weekend football's coming home!

Jack Wilshere to save Arsenal a shedload next season.

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Jack Wilshere has been practising his photography this weekend at a London nightclub, he apparently he is getting so good now that next season he is going to take the team picture.

So now the press are having a go at our Jack for shoving his mobile up a birds frock, well correct me if I'm wrong but he is 18 and from what I know about photography you'd only get a picture if the person's frock you were clipping was a micro one and had they been sensibly dressed and not attention seeking in a Kensington night club next to footballers on a night out, it wouldn't have happened.

And suddenly this bird's name is all over the press, I bet she made sure they spelt her name right didn't she, I've seen these types at clubs, and they only go there to snare a footballer, most of the are just predators, they don't take their eyes of their target, shame on them.

Look at people like Peter Crouch, would he have a bird like that if he wasn't a footballer, he looks like Lurch and Rooney's wife gets masses of money just because she married him, it's disgraceful, involvement with premiership footballers to some women is now a career.

So Jack should be hailed as a hero and gets a sex pest one instead, very unfair in my book.

Not to mention that Jack can't give his side of the story either, my goodness the press really hate us don't they?

We also tried to get Lloris, Given and Begovic on the last day of the window as well, so if those stories are to be believed, then that makes 4 keepers, not sure I do believe it but it's my job to report.

In the Mail yesterday they reported on the winners and losers in the window, Almunia got a 'winners' tag for keeping his job and the Arsenal fans got the 'losers' tag because we failed to get a keeper, go figure!

I was thinking about the 56 or so under 21's we put forward, if you add the loanees to that, it would take it past 60, add the new boys who aren't even on there, that makes 63, plus the 20 grown ups that makes some 83 footballers at our club, now is that really necessary? And how much does that cost us? It's like we are trying to stop everyone else buying youth.

Considering how many actually graduate, our percentages aren't that impressive are they.

I heard that Chezzer is now going out on loan, so it looks like Almunia is it then, I'll get behind him, of course I will, but you would think that Bob Wilson as an ex-coach would tell him what he does wrong and help him put it right, Gerry Peyton, if he's the keeper coach, ought to be replaced, as he hasn't done it.

Spare a thought for Cashley who will be divorced today, he really has no luck in life does he? I feel for him, I also feel for Ade, poor sod went up to Manchester to be loved and all that happens is he gets dropped.

I fancy Jack to play against Bolton, show Coyle what he learned in his time up there, I was also wondering how Jack would fare as a DM, he has vision, a ripper of a tackle, speed and intelligence, why shouldn't a skilful player be a DM?

Just a thought. Have a great day Grovers, it's the weekend tomorrow!
