Arsenal out of the FA cup, thank god, I was right!!!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

That headline was for all the numbnut AKB’s out there that seem to think Le Grove are only happy when we lose. Here are some facts for you morons.


We are Arsenal fans first, whilst we are delighted to have Arsene Wenger as our manager we are fans of the club first and if we feel we need to disagree with the manger, then that’s our right as fans, if we didn’t question him, there would be no balance of the other point of view, we would all be agreeing with him and saying stuff like, who cares about the FA cup? We had a good run didn’t we? And 4-5-1 nearly pulled it off, we only lost 2-1. This team doesn’t get enough credit, loads of money but no credit. Yes I know the day cost me ยฃ250 and we lost, but I don’t care, Arsene knows.


But you know what, we’re not, I was so traumatised after my Wembley trip after my initial Saturday evening rant I haven’t read a paper, watched the sports news or entered into conversation with anyone, I didn’t even comment on my own blog yesterday, why? Because we lost? No, it was the manner in which we lost, pathetic and disrespectful to every fan that watched.

The last time we played 4-5-1 in the FA Cup we beat the Mancs, it was the last time we played an FA cup final and it was dreadful, so have we learned from that? No, not a bit.

We have been saying all season that 4-5-1 wins nothing, 4-5-1 is fine if you don’t want to lose, like an away game, but when you want to win, it’s dumb.

Wigan, Villarreal away, I could go on, everytime we play it we’re woeful, everytime we changed to 4-4-2 we are awesome, why do we always wait until the 70 something minute before we change??? Doesn’t he realise that whoever he plays against knows he’ll do that? And are ready?

When will he realise that Ade is just a lazy bastard who is only interested in moving on, running around trying to win the ball doesn’t feature with him anymore, when will he realise that Eboue is just not good enough, just as I’m beginning to see Song is adding something he takes him off, yes I know I said I rated Diaby but after the first 45 he should have seen he wasn’t cutting it and taken him off.

Why is it that our best player, the 6th best in the world, Andre Arshavin was on the bench? Did he think that the Chavs would think he had a brilliant master plan and run away, or did he think they would laugh their bollocks off.

Where is the apology for all the money us poor saps paid to see such an inept performance? Where is the ‘I got it so wrong people and I’m sorry you spent so much’. All he did was blamed the pitch, as did Ferguson, didn’t the chavs and the Toffees have to play on the same pitch? Didn’t he go and look at it beforehand, don’t England win all their games on it???

Yes we may well win the Champions league, but with a formation like that, only if they change the rules and let West Brom in the final. I was disappointed, I so looked forward to the game and he sent out a team that had little or no chance, if there are any fans out there that can defend that garbage, then you are not proper Arsenal fans, you are Arsene sheep.

Me, I know what I am, you should donate your salary to charity boss, at least let someone profit from that shocking display that aren’t Chavs.

So tomorrow we play Liverpool, I can’t get up for that just yet, but by tomorrow I’ll be there, because that’s what Arsenal fans do, they support the team, you know what Arsene, we don’t get enough credit for that, perhaps you ought to say something.

Perhaps if you’d bought Alonso and a decent centre back in the summer we would have played better, perhaps you should start listening.

As far as Fabianski is concerned he’s okay, the rest of the team should not have put him in the position where he had to come charging out, it’s the same for a lot of our young players, they are just too young, we need a few older heads, and I don’t mean as old as Silvestre, I mean a few like Arshavin and Rosicky (Yes he is still employed by Arsenal).

Have a great day Grovers, let’s just hope that we remember how to play football again before we go to Anfield, at least they aren’t as good there as they are away from home.

I wonder how many board members went home as devastated as we all did on Saturday? If any of them gave a rats arse they would have made Wenger buy some quality last summer, I have a feeling there will be some changes very soon. This can’t go on for another year surely???

    Stu – don’t frighten Wenger. Pick one who costs less that ยฃ10m, has good sell on value and is under 22

  3. Arindam@KOL

    Been following Bundesliga quite some time now. The guy looked shaky at times last season. Apparently is having a blinder this term tho.

  4. irishgunner

    Silva from Valencia??? I think you are looking at ยฃ20mil plus at least and you want to give them less that ยฃ10mil – you’re stinger than Wenger Stu ๐Ÿ˜†

  5. Stu

    Irish, all i did was name the players less than 22 and with a sell on value. Its impossible to tick all the boxed so i ticked as many as possible. Simples… ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. irishgunner

    The boss would never stand for that Stu, all boxes must be ticked – except the top class box of course, potential is better

  7. Arindam@KOL

    Nighty night Arindam, Irish, BBK and to anyone reading but not commenting(Voyeurism at its best……………

  9. The Turk

    BBK you would probably have just as much fun tossing a coin as you do supporting Arsenal.
    Every time you get it right you could go on a blog and say
    “I told you tails was shit!!LOL!!!”
    You could do it 38 times in a row and get and entire season out of the way. Then you could concentrate on charmin teh honeyz!!!

    Liverpool are set to be without injured captain Steven Gerrard and Arsenal without strikers Emmanuel Adebayor and Robin Van Persie for their midweek Premier League match at Anfield.

    Gerrad is expected to be ruled out for a further seven to 10 days with the groin problem that has forced him to miss Liverpool’s last two matches.

    A draw for Liverpool at home would see them go top of the table although champions Manchester United would regain first place if they defeated Portsmouth at Old Trafford the next day.

    Arsenal will be without their top scorer van Persie (groin) and fellow striker Adebayor (hamstring).

    However, full-back Bacary Sagna has recovered from a virus and could feature at Anfield, along with fit-again Croatia forward Eduardo.

  11. PDT

    Bacary Sagna returns to the squad after illness but two more defenders, Gaรซl ยญClichy and Johan Djourou, remain on the sidelines, although both of them players hope to be back for the Champions League semi-final first-leg at United on Wednesday week. The injury update was more alarming on the goalkeeper Manuel Almunia, who will not play in the Old Trafford tie and has emerged as a serious doubt for the return leg six days later.

    My team for today. Well, tomorrow for me…


    No Song and no Denilson please. We will leak goals, so let’s focus on scoring a boatload.

    Of course, the team he will really play is


    He will “rest Theo and Nasri for the CL game”. Effing moron.

  14. PDT

    I forget who was the coach at Juventus (Capello?), when we played them in the CL in ’06. He said that Arsenal scare him because “they sit back, absorb attacks and then break at breaneck speed with 6 or seven players”.

    Now, we play with a high line of defence, get caught out by long balls and try to break down defences by passing sideways.

    When we were at Highbury, our pitch was narrower, so we didn’t have a choice but to use the length of the pitch to open up defences. NOw, at the Grove, our pitch is wide, so we use the width, but have forgotten to use the length.

    BTW, we don’t even do a good job of using the width as we don’t practice crossing or set pieces.

    I really do hope someone reads through all of the stuff I am posting. There is some really good stuff in there.

    “I have big respect for the Anfield crowd. I will never forget the day when we were leading 5-1 there [in the League Cup in 2007] and they were chanting ‘You’ll never walk alone’ like one man. When you are a manager and you know what you usually get when you are 5-1 down, you have only respect for the city. That would be a bit more difficult at the Emirates.”

    Hell, yeah! Tell your stewards that!

    Evening all

    Well this is my sentimental game, the one fixture that stood out for me when the draw was made pre season. I think if there is anyone left @ The Club that was around 20 years ago (Pat Rice, Steve Bould, r 2 that come to mind) this is a must win in more ways than one.

  18. PDT

    Steve McMahon is a commentator on Singapore telly. I want to see what he has to say after we beat them on their turf. Again. Twenty years of humiliation!

    PDT good stuff posted haha.. i read em. and GG9 I agree with the sentiment… would loved a full strngth tussel!! 2nite the confidence needs to be reshown, that one bad show doesn’t lead to another. Bring it!

    You know where to find me


    Its mild now, but July is like pommy land cold. Actually, Tassie is a bit like Britain, with Gum Trees ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Geoff

    Gnarley that was better than Gladiator and sex combined, I want to re-write the post now!

    They should make the team watch that on the lear jet today.

  22. Geoff

    That’s the sort of player that we should be going after, but obviously not him at that price, but not a 17 year old called Wellington.

    We got Rui Fonte, Vela, Aliadiere, the fucking list goes on, they never make it, and when they do, like Wilshere or Ramsey, he never plays them.

  23. PDT

    I would like to see some defensive talent from Argentina/Uruguay/Mexico or Eastern Europe. Those are hard leagues.
