Mandingo transfer exclusive + Photos from the game!

MISSION: FIND MANDINGO

After hearing on good authority (The Grovers) that Arsene Wenger was scouting Sheep herding sensation Mandingo Dkembe Dkembe, I thought it was Le Grove’s responsibility to uncover his identity first.

We had a bit of trouble along the way, it was like that scene from Spartacus… so we’ll let you decide who the real Mandingo is with a pictorial montage of our adventures…

I’ve also thrown in a few pics of the game!

Enjoy…!

Mandingo is rumoured to strike the fear of god into the opposition… could he be Mandingo?

You have no idea how hard this pic was to get! The bee had a 15 year old body guard with him!

Could we be maximising Mandingo’s use to save a few pennies?

Gerry Peyton, the Arsenal Keeping Coach… tried to confuse us with his claim…

Neil Banfield, reserve team coach was trying to throw us off the scent as well!

Look to the right of the bee… that’s the body guard.

Midget boy wonder… his legs are 30 cm long… mental!

The fans behind that goal were singing nasty things about Ade… very funny.

That is the first goal…

No one had even scored there… the team spirit is just that good!

Action shot…

More action…

Some hand shaking!

So that’s your lot! A big thanks to Gerry and Neil for being great sports and to Bud for getting in there with all the big names!

If you see Mandingo out, and you can get a pic… we’ll add it to the new ‘Find Mandingo’ page… good luck!

Have a good day Grovers!

    Excellent pics, will the real Mandingo please stand up! Are we on this thread or the previously posted one today?

    I am affraid to inform you that Pedro’s identity is to stay under wraps for security reasons and the god like form in the green top was in fact me, Le-Grove’s very own Kate Adie, Roving Reporter!

    Perdro. I can’t believe you left our very kind host, Barnets very own Luscious Lucy off….. Get it posted hombre, you will destroy her moment of fame if you don’t, you know how excited she was and she WILL be looking !!!!!!!

    If I had a gun, and killing was legal, I would hunt that Bastard Hleb down, and shoot the fucker down – he is a stirring Bastard!!!!

  4. patthegooner

    Hleb is a slimy worm. I was so far up Flamini’s ring that he doted on everything he said including about moving clubs and getting more money

    But I feel confident Cesc will be here for a bit longer. There are Leaders and Followers in Football

    People like Henry and Cesc are Leaders

    Hleb is a follower and I have a feeling that Henry is going to make his time at Nou Camp a complete and utter misery.

    My God the Grove is a quiet place today….. are we all tucking into our Sunday lunch or nursing hangovers???

    Wow, this is a light day . . . Bud, I am thinking hangovers or everyone went to see the Dark Knight last night. My wife and I did not get home until 2:30AM. Great flick though.

    So, Geoff, how was the squad? In specific, how was Ramsey? I read that he had some great through balls, and had good flow on the pitch.

    I believe that since Rosicky will not be ready for August, it seems Nasri will slot right in to left wing. I think based on his performance Barazite should be the back up left winger for Nasri until Rosicky is back. Then again Vela could be used for that spot as well.

    On the right, it should be Theo, however Simpson has made a good case for himself and I think he should be given a chance, so he and Theo should be competing for that spot.

    Eboue, in my opinion should be the CC and FA cup right back and also used to give Sagna a rest against the lower sides in the league. Eboue has played very well at right back..not right wing, so definitely I think the right wing should be left for Theo and Simpson to run.

    I was thinking about a change in formation the other day but maybe it was too drastic. I think using conventional 4-4-2 , I think we should start the season like this

    ……………………………………Almunia

    Sagna………………Toure……………………Gallas………………Clichy

    Theo/JAy………….Cesc…………….Diaby/Denilson………Nasri/Vela/Barazite

    …………………….Ade/Rvp…………………Eddy/Bendtner

  9. Maryland Gunner

    On a different note, why is Hleb talking so much about Fabregas? I mean come on . . . let it go man. You are gone, you got what you wanted. Stop stirring up a bee’s nest of issues.

  10. Ja_Gunner

    Song and Senderos would be the back up centre backs so far.

    Djourou should be competing with Diaby and Denilson for the DM role.
    (Brazil once had the R’s now we have the 3 D’s competing for the DM role)

    He is very big and could be good protection for our smaller defenders.

    I am not sure about Fran Merida’s progress but I think he and Ramsey should be the ones to give Cesc much needed rest.

    I know Diaby is somehwat attack minded, but I think against most teams he can do the job. However in tight games where we use 4-5-1.

    We use Denilson or Djourou to the Gilberto role and sit in front of the defense which would free up Cesc and Diaby.

    The 4-5-1 could look like this.

    ……………………………………Almunia

    Sagna………………Toure……………………Gallas………………Clichy

    ………………………Denilson/Djourou/Song…………………..

    Theo/JAy………….Cesc…………….Diaby………Nasri/Vela/Barazite

    ………………………………..Ade/Rvp…………………

    interesting comments from AW:

    “We are in the market and if there is a good opportunity we will take it.

    “I cannot give you any names, but we are still thinking of bringing in one more. We will buy a player with experience.”

    Does he mean prem experience or academy experience???

    And by the way, Ade if you are reading this I F***ing HATE YOU!!!!

    Harrington won the Open

    Driving home from Work on Wednesday, Paddy Power was on Talk Sport and because it did not look like Harrington would even start the Open, he offered refunds on any bet on him if he pulled out

    I thought it was a win win, He would either not start and I would get my money back, he would start but fall behind and then pull out so as not to aggravate the injury and I would get my money back or he would win it and I would be quids in

    He drifted out to 40-1 based on the injury and I was going to put a couple of hundred quid on it as soon as I got home. As ever I get into the house, the dog had shit in the dining room and by the time I had cleared it up I forgot all about putting the bet on.

    He has now won it

    I am not a big fan the Rupert Murdoch monopoly of news agencies, and I dont want to sound paranoid. But I realy think they have something against us, over the past years their papers have always stirred things up about players leaving etc and now on skysports.com they have a piece called the arsenal exodus. Does anyone know why they would have such an agenda?

    Do all comments get moderated here??? if so what is banned?

  14. LeGrover

    was this mandingo thing supposed to be funny?

    the only funny thing about it was the fat man trying to hid his pot belly with a zip up green top! hahaha

  15. Bud

    There’s always one isn’t there. Never mind mate, most found it a laugh and if you joined in Le-Grove over the last 2 weeks you possibly may have found it funny……….. unless of course you have no sense of humour, in which case this probably isn’t the right website for you !

  16. Bud

    I had to convince them first it was not a porn site by showing them Le-Grove on my phone and then once i’d explained where the Mandingo thing came from they loved it…….. I did ask Neil Banfield if he could get a photo of Theo holding the sign and that we wanted to go with the headline of “Theo is Passport Shocker”, but he said he wasn’t sure whether that was a good idea!!!!!!!!!

  17. Bud

    Pedro was on Camera, it is him you have to thank for the action shots…….. all I was, was the fat poor mans Dennis Pennis !!!!!!

  18. ethangunner

    ok bud i think pedro is the guy in the 1st photo .. 🙂
    the one who looks like someone from the adams family ..

    right???

    pedro are you just camera shy or do you need to speak with your agent prior too
    any public photos ? well good snaps guys .. you probably had more fun tarting around the ground than actually watching the game….

    Watching it was a bit of a yawn actually … and a reality shock when a 2nd division team goes 1 up against you @ the half..
    In our last EPL winning season we beat barnet 10 nil ..
    thanks to reyes and DB10 .. from memory .. People might want to right it off as cobwebs.. but like i said before they had 11 players and so did we … i didnt see much
    difference between us and them .we held possession and typically in arsenal fashion did FA with it as usual .. and that is the shocking
    reality of it all ! Early stages show there hasn’t been a huge leap in youngsters coming of age .. Ramsay looks a good signing and wiltshire on watching a re-run of the game seemed to have skill .. But how would they fair against Man U ????

    We need experience and top class players IN or this season will have the same
    ground hog day end result to it ..

  19. ethangunner

    Gee news sunday ..

    Wenger said he will make one more signing ! gee that sounds about right !!! USELESS
    wenger said ade is staying .. smart move .. NOT!!!

    next season he will be in the same boat as hleb and we will be in a position where we have too sell him because he wont re-sign an improved contract .. or risk losing him the year after that ! I might actually see the day ade becomes a good player .. only for him to do a flamini ???!!!

    Gallas’s hissy fit (which i said was coming ) has now arrived .. i said we would lose him when the issue of captain came around !!

    What i didnt see coming is Juv wanting RVP for 15 mil.. Fuck arsene bite there hand off ! take it .. and replace him with santa cruz !!!! SOMEONE !!!
    the last 2 years have proved he is more injured than playing , great fucking player, but
    we need consistency .. (i bet you if we do sell him he will never be injured again !)

    it pisses me off that we sell all these players , finally get some money then arsene states , ill let the youngsters fill the role ! …

    its orchestrated like this every season .. the money disappears and then by next transfer period we dont have any money ..

    Hleb is enticing cesc to barca also !
    will we have anyone other than ade left in the 1st team ???
    and like i said he’s so fucking useless no cunt wants him anyhow ..
    or he would have been gone already !!!

    And you people want the board to stay in charge!?!??!?!?!
    And most of you are happy with wenger’s reign ??

    another burning question is will we have anyone from last years team still
    with us this season ?!?!

    And when will anyone start believing im correct in saying the club is in crisis ???

  20. Geoff

    Ethan, you just wrote my todays blog! not long now Grovers and a new post will be posted.

    Jimbo, I talk about just that, and what Ethan just posted!

  21. Bud

    I have to agree with Jimbo……… would rather have VP for half a season than Santa Cruz for the whole thing…….. he only scored a lot of goals as Blackburn play the long ball and whip it in via Bentley from anywhere on the pitch…….. not arsenals style at all !!!!!

  22. ethangunner

    you can cut and paste Geoff
    i wont ban you 🙂
    however you might need to word it differently so that #### Evo can understand it 🙂
