Platini, go fuck yourself, motivational video + Carling cup preview

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Good morning Grovers!

It is Carling cup morn and many people have been asking many questions about what will happen tonight. Will Wenger start Gilberto? Will Gilberto play if he is asked? Will Jens be our new Cup Keeper? Will Walcott start, or will he be saved for the Manc’s?

Many questions unlikely to be answered by Le Grove! What? You think I have a personal line to Wenger? Don’t be so damn foolish!

What I can give you is this:

Provisional Squad: Fabianski, J Hoyte, Toure, Song, Traore, Eboue, Denilson, Diarra, Diaby, Walcott, Bendtner, Mannone, Gilberto, Eduardo, Lansbury, G Hoyte, Merida.

And this:

Predicted Starting eleven: Fabianski, J Hoyte, Toure, Gilberto, Traore, Eboue, Denilson, Diarra, Diaby, Bendtner, Eduardo.

Whatever team Arsene ends up picking, you’d have to say it will be strong. A lot stronger than any team we played in last years Carling cup. It looks like being a team that will start with Bendtner Big Bollocks, who receives high praise from Wenger here.

Sheffield United fans will be hoping for a repeat of last years Prem result. This has been made all the more difficult because Fat Paddy is out through injury. It is thought the attendance may not be as high as normal, well, if VitalFootball are to believed.

In non Carling Cup related news, Alex Hleb is up for a contract extension. Yes, he wants to sign and no, he is not flattered by Milan and Barca’s interest in him. Makes a change, doesn’t it!

Willy G reckons he will fulfill his promise and win Arsenal some trophies. He also plays down talk of another invincible season. I do wish the press would stop building things up, its so transparent.

Xenophobe, Michel Platini is back on the rampage again. This time he is complaining about Arsenal pinching the best young players of smaller clubs, improving them and giving them great careers. Oh yes, Platini thinks teams like Milwall should be afforded protection so they can become top four contenders. Platini needs to understand France would have won fuck all had it not been for Arsene Wenger.

What is his problem? Maybe he is upset he didn’t join Arsenal when he had the chance, or maybe his underlying hatred of Arsenal is down to the fact an Arsenal trained player broke his national scoring record?

Fuck off Platini, you are a cunt…

Thierry bitch’s about not being 100% fit (Who misses that old chesnut?) and claims Barca play more like Bolton direct than Arsenal.

Before you read this, prepare yourself a comfortable space on the floor to roll about laughing on. has moved into comedy!

Onto Ian Wright Wright Wright!

Wrighty is claiming insider knowledge that is already in the public domain. Thanks for informing us Thierry was an unsettling influence and that we are better off without him. Thanks for telling him he should have left us two years ago. Thanks for going along with the rest of the worlds footballing pundits and claiming we would collapse without him. You are a great ambassador to the club Mr Wright.

Finally, I dug deep into Le Groves one Video Archive to find the last Goal PV04 scored for the Ars! Its a little motivational watch for the youngsters tonight! What a moment, in the worst game of football I have ever seen! Who said Club Levellers have no passion?

Oh, and if you took time to read this today, have a little vote in the side bar. We get huge amounts of money for every vote! Just kidding, but vote regardless!

Good luck to the boys tonight!

Adios Amigo’s!

    Funny vid, amazing clarity.

    Is a prediction of 5-0 too arrogant?

    This is a big game for the Great Dane, he has to get some goals and show us he is ready to be our impact player against ManU.

    I think Eduardo has to have a big game tonight to silence some of the doubters

    Come on you Reds!

    Did anyone watch Sky Sports News last night…… it was so hilarious….. I honestly could not stop chuckling when they were reading out the Spuds emails about their new Spanish Cunt Manager….

    The particular line that done me was as follows….. If you work in an office, please wait till lunchtime when everyone else is out, as you may make a fool of yourself by howling hysterically and falling off your chair in an epileptic style fit….

    I’m sure you have heard it before, probably 2 years ago, then a year before that then a year before that, then 3 years before that, then 2 years before that…. you get the drift, new manger comes in…

    Right, you all ready????

    This is what was written and read out on SKY SPORTS NEWS to the nation….

    Here goes….

    “This is great for Spurs, this is the new beginning, finally we can turn our season round and challenge for the 4th spot”

    From a Liverpool Feed….

    It’s a tough thing to admit, but even Liverpool’s players had to concede that the Gunners were superior on the day. It was a point gained for Rafa’s men rather than two lost.

    I was reading the news wires for player opinions after the Liverpool-Arsenal game. By now the majority of people who watched the game are probably wondering how Arsenal didn’t go on to win, given the better chances they had.

    Some Liverpool fans have admirably stood their ground and claimed luck deserted us, with injuries to Xabi Alonso and Fernando Torres. I say we had luck firmly on our side when the goalpost and dodgy boots saved us from conceding.

    Not many Liverpool fans, however, have said we outplayed them for longer than they did us.

    Our own players certainly didn’t. Read quotes from Steve Finnan (“I suppose they were good enough to win the match because of the chances and possession they had”); Jamie Carragher (“Are Arsenal as good as people say they are? You’d better believe it, I thought they had 12 men out there!”) and Pepe Reina (“I think it is a point gained because they were the better side”). On the other hand, the only Arsenal quotes indicated they knew, like our players did, who the better side were on the day.

    I would have loved Liverpool to have stolen a win, but left with no choice, can make peace with a draw. Arsenal fans can remain aggrieved, though, because they were, and are the better footballing side.

    Last season, players like Aleksandr Hleb and Cesc Fabregas were being criticised for being ineffective and not scoring enough. Second, Arsenal did not have a plan B, and last, they were soft in the centre of midfield.

    Now, Hleb is dovetailing effectively with Fabregas (himself scoring for fun), and suddenly you don’t really notice whether Cesc and Mathieu Flamini are having to outmuscle opponents, because the team is playing almost seamlessly all over the pitch. They’ve also learned to play, and win ugly, if they have to, as a plan B.
