This is it, the moment we have been waiting for, TONIGHT WE WILL BE MAGNIFICENT!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Arsene has rallied the troops, he has made his speech, he has said we will be magnificent tonight and I for one believe him. He has said this Arsenal team will play to it’s strengths, keep the ball and attack, he also hinted he feels we play better 4-4-2, fantastic, at last, I hope he leaves Ade out not because I think he’s a bad player, but because I think he is better coming off the bench hungry and also because Bendtner deserves it after a great performance against Pompey.

I also think he (Bendtner) has a hatful in him and after all the seasons misses, it’s payback time, I believe his time has come to be a superstar, Robin the boy wonder is back in and he has a great chance to show us all he is the new numero uno at Arsenal.

Theo has been talking it up as has Cesc and on the way Cesc has said his future lies at Arsenal and I fancy him for a big game as well, I thought about not going as the tenseness of the game could kill me, but to not to be there and be a part of Arsenal’s history tonight would be like not being there when we beat Liverpool against all the odds at Anfield exactly 20 years ago. And if I have to die anywhere, it may as well be at the Arsenal.

Tonight we get our reward for refusing to play Wimbledon the Tuesday after the Hillsborough tragedy, that was when the FA threatened to dock us 2 points, this is the night God gives us our reward, tonight we have God on our side and everyone knows that no one likes the Mancs.

Tonight we should play like it’s the last game of the season, because if we don’t win, it will be, so every last ounce and every sinew needs to go into this game.

Tonight is the night our youngsters show the world why Arsene Wenger has unbending faith in them, tonight is the night they come of age, tonight is the night we overcome the odds and put a shed load past the cocky northern monkeys, tonight will be the greatest night in our history, tonight we put rednose and his expensive team of drug addicts and old lady shaggers to the sword.

I hope we get in their faces from the off and get 2 quick goals, that will throw them, tonight is not about caution and biding our time, tonight is about aggression and great finishing, shoot from everywhere and anywhere but boss, please don’t play Diaby. I think he will come good, I really do, but not tonight, tonight you need to have Vela in that spot, Vela has no fear, Nasri in the middle with Cesc and Song behind them should we play 4-5-1.

Eboue played well against Portsmouth, but I think I would play Gibbs, but if Gibbs is not 100% then Eboue without hesitation, I thought he gave us something on Saturday, I thought the whole team showed the attitude that we needed at Old Trafford last week.

We have nothing to lose, as far as the world is concerned, we have already lost so Arsenal, at em from the start!

In 1812 the brash new American army decided that wanted Canada, so they invaded Canada, we had two choices, let them have it and think about next season, or smash them and march all the way to Washington and burn it to the ground, we smashed them and tonight we will burn Washington to the ground, tonight will be the greatest night in Arsenal football clubs history, tonight will be Arsene’s finest hour, tonight we fix our date to march on Rome!

No offence to our Americans friends but it was a long time ago, you were the favourites, you did re-build it and didn’t do to badly as a result.

They can’t do it alone Grovers, so tonight you must be as noisy as you’ve ever been, wherever you are sing and sing loud, we’ll hear you, your spirit will be with us.

No predictions but I wouldn’t be surprised if we score 3 more than they do, go Arsenal, go!!!

    disgraceful again left when they scored the second never been so humiliated expected us to go out not like that though cant compete with the best about time wenger stopped this plan with these cunts who are not good enough

  2. David

    Cant do it Keyser…How easy we forget the fact that Fizman came out and said there was at least 30 million in the Kitty for Wenger to spend…

    The man himself came out and confessed he is a “prisoner to his youth policy” and Hes already come out to say he’s not signing anyone again this summer.

    Thats pretty plain English to me…is all Im saying.

  3. wolski7

    boyz against men tonight i am afraid.
    AW needs to buy experienced quality players, to compliment the young talent we have.

    if he does not change his thinking we will go at least another 2 – 3 seasons with nothing. Fab, RVP etc will leave and we will be building again with young players..it will not work. It needs to be a mix.

    AW said the game was over after the 2 goals…is that how he felt because I didn’t, I continued singing and shouting while he sat on his number 13 seat. I wanted to see us dying for the cause and didn’t see it.

    Either he takes a new number 2 who will give him fresh ideas, tactics and challenge him…or in my opinion he needs to go… we had no answer to them tonight, work rate, tactically.

    Ade you were a disgrace tonight you are not fit to wear the shirt…lazy lazy lazy.

    The “fans” that left with 30 minutes to go are a disgrace. I support AFC, The Arsenal, my club…not a player, not a manager but a club….and I stayed to the end as I always do…win or lose. Those that left with 30 to go, do not come back.

  4. Supergunner07

    Just came back from the game, i am so gutted for personally and for Gibbs, he looked distraught. I am really dissapointed with Wenger worrying too much about the opposition and not going for their throat with 4-4-2.

    Bcuz we are not deeply experience, we cannot play the caggy type of games [very tactical cat & mouse] that Man Ure, Chav & pool can play thus we should defending by attacking the opposition with 4-4-2. Anyway i hope the players learn from all these bad experience and get into good position for PL next season.

    Also someone told me that Flamoney was @ the match [prick], its bcuz of players like him we r having to rebuild the midfield again, i hope he chokes on his money.

  5. BOY BETTER KNOW

    kirby how can you leave when they scored there second your not a proper supporter are you

  6. Franchise

    porto fucked us up at the dragao. they didnt play badly at the emirates although they lost 3-0. guess who topped our group irish and btw united didnt loose at home to porto cos they are fucking resilient

  7. Keyser

    David – You tried to make a point about the Board forcing Wenger to buy, but then have gone on to say that we haven’t bought anyone else because Wenger’s a prisoner to his policies.

    Has he got bail now ? Is he on remand ? what ?!

  8. wolski7

    AW said judge him and his team in May….well it’s May and I am judging. I’m afraid it’s a no from me!

  9. Hitman

    GM

    Messi, Eto, Henry = pace, pace pace
    Yaya , Keita = power

    We have neither. Barce arent lightweight. I agree we need better players but the balance of our team has been wrong for years now.

  10. ethangunner

    Coadsi

    wise words ..

    we need to unite and not bury our heads in the sand saying the typical paraphrase of ..

    ‘oh well’
    we will give wenger 1 more chance .

    sell the dead wood , get in the correct personnel , or move on ….

    the fans pay to see the club …
    its our call if we are united ..

    the board needs to move on, or wenger . or both .
    change will happen sooner or later , and with another season over id like to see CHANGE !

  11. wolski7

    we bought arshavin, an experienced quality player and I think I h hs made the difference to our season. best chance we had of silverware was the FA Cup and AW fecked that up..

  12. Keyser

    Franchise – I can understand you being upset and rambling a bit, but saying United didn’t lose because they are resilient is stretching it, you’re back into your United appreciation mode there.

  13. David

    Keyser I fail to see how the board forcing Wenger to buy and Wenger being a prisoner to his policy’s are 2 different things…Maybe you have some insider information there…or some enlightenment about the subject matter.

    Please do enlighten on…

  14. Franchise

    barca try to win the ball as soon as they loose it irrespective of their size. they work hard that was pep’s main thing he worked on in pre season as i read in the times. he got his forward players to pressure the ball and as a result the trio of messi, henry and etoo have conceded more fouls than marquez and puyol together. arsenal just focus on the fancy side of the game

  15. kirby

    bbk i knew it was over i cant sit and take that i love arsenal and i cant sit there for another 79 minutes and know we are out i was disgusted

  16. trindle

    How many of our starting XI would have started for ManUre? Fab, on glories past alone … er, that’s it?

  17. Franchise

    keyser say what u wish united are on course for a treble. we are waiting for next year even the spuds have won a trophy last season and played a final this season. we are becoming serial underachievers

  18. Keyser

    David – I thought you wouldn’t, so you’re saying Wenger is a prisoner to his policies unless the board force him to buy someone ?!

  19. wolski7

    kirby, I do not understand your comments. So will you only stay if we are winning? Yes I agree we played badly, we need surgery in key areas of the team but to desert your club not even half way through I find amazing

  20. Franchise

    the way porto were on top of united in the 1st leg if it were us we would have lost woefully at home or away

    we have too many cry babies in our team

  21. Keyser

    Franchise – Look I take full blame, we need more fans like you with well balanced and well thought out posts to take us forward.

    ================================

    Im glad you mentioned it Franchise…they win the ball most of the time in the attacking third….What is so fuckin great about Iniesta and particularly Xavi is that they have more interceptions than they do assists!

    Which really chuffs me big time when people come on here defending Denilson stats that he has so many interceptions…and bla bla bla…Barca have so many interceptions up the pitch and in the middle of the park that is why their counter is so quick and deadly its not from defense!

  23. Mandanda

    funny thing is i said late last year that our best chance of a trophy this season was the FA Cup as we did not have the defence to win the CL…

  24. kirby

    and why would i wanna stay there bbk its like walking in on your mum and dad having sex and waiting till the finish fuck that!!

  25. Coadsi

    I was hoping that we would have found a way to win tonight, well we know how that went. i am prolly more gutted how we lose than the fact that we lost. players not giving their all, fans (or shud i say persons entering the stadium giving the impression they are fans) leaving before the final whistle…………..all sad to see.

  26. Franchise

    if ade was shit today then i wonder what we would call cesc. keep singling out scapegoats then u would realise that no one tonight could have held their head high and escaped criticism. nasri was alright but mostly ballerinaish. the rest were hopeless

  27. David

    Keyser

    How else did we get Arshavin? And how else would he have 30 million in the kitty and get Bitchslapp on the free and silvestre?

  28. MARK GOONER

    DISGUSTING

    JUST GOT HOME
    AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN OVER 12 YEARS WALKED OUT WITH HALF HOUR TO GO

    WHAT CAN U SAY. NOT GOOD ENOUGH
    THEY ARE ON ANOTHER LEVEL TO US

    THEO(NOT READY YET)
    NASRI (NOT READY YET)

    ADEBAYOR (NOT GOOD ENOUGH SELL HIM)
    RVP (LOST PATEINCE WITH HIM SELL)

    WHAT PLAYER FROM US APAT FROM CESC WOULD GET IN THAT TEAM NONE

    ITS AS POOR AS IT GETS FOR 150 MINS VAN DER SAR NEVER HAD A SAVE TO MAKE

    FUCK THIS POLICY OF STICKING WITH YOUTH THAT AINT READY AND STARTING SIGNING WORLD CLASS PLAYERS LIE BEFORE, OR THERE WILL BE A SERIOUS REVOLT

    I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH DISMAY, WITH AN HOUR TO GO THERE WAS GOONERS SMASHING UP BINS IN THE STREET IN FRUSTRATION,

    IM A PROPER FAN, YES I LEFT EARLY, BUT WE WERE DISGRACEFULL, NEVER LOOKED LIKE SCORING AND WERE TOTALLY OUTCLASSED

    ATMOSPHERE WAS ELECTRIC BEFORE HAND, BUT AS SOON AS THE GAME GOT UNDER WAY, WE FELL TO PIECES

    WENGER DONT METION SPRIT AND CHARACTER IN YOUR INTERVIEW, IT JUST WONT WASH

    FUCK SAKE WHAT NOW

  29. kirby

    maybe i care more not to go through the heartache of going out more than you wolski but we was out from that moment and i chose to go home because i was gutted!

  30. Franchise

    keyser u can use all the sarcasm u wish i bet pat rice goes home tonight and tells his missus that he doesnt understand what wenger is doing these days.

  31. BOY BETTER KNOW

    listening to them dirty manc cunts,i feel sorry for the lot going up to o.t next week good luck to them……

  32. gooner786

    Now that we have nothing to play for this season Wenger should start planning for next season. We should auction off Adebayor and try to bring in Benzema(before rednose gets him), Villa or Dzeko. We should also buy a couple of decent CB’s eg haangeland, Richards(Arsenal fan) or Sakho.

  33. choy

    cesc at least earned us a penalty and had a couple of shots on goal.. at least tried.. did ade even shoot or dirty his boots?

    he was on the left wing… trying to be henry

  34. Keyser

    David – You’re not making any sense, so the board forced Wenger to buy, but not enough to buy him outright then and there, just enough so that we could go to the last few minutes of the transfer and force Zenit’s hand into giving him at a cut price value ?!

  35. Franchise

    these same pricks that wenger is putting blind faith in would come out at the end of the day and say they want to assess their position and see the direction the club is heading to

  36. Bernard Baines

    wolski, very well said about the fans who left early. that is a disgrace.

    ronaldo makes me sick, one second he’s rolling around the floor in agony holding his ankle, next second he’s up and smacking the ball into the net from a free kick. The fucking cheat. Sadly, a lot of it goes on in the game today, but him and bloody Drogba are the worst offenders. Just as there is player of the month and year awards etc, there should be cheat of the year awards. Seriously. Someone should start a petition and get that in place.

    Anyway, bitterly frustrating and disappointing night. Completely gutted for Gibbs. . .bad bit of luck and it threw us off our game from that moment on. For the first couple of minutes we looked bright and tonight could have gone very differently

  37. reggie57

    AW will do nothing just bury his head in the sand and hope the kiddy experiment bears fruit!!

  38. Mandanda

    the ref earned us a penalty

    please not this Richards talk again…this guy is not as good as Djourou FFS

  39. goonermichael

    Franchise I agree. Robin should try to score a free kick before he talks about the clubs ambition.

  40. choy

    The Club needs to start the transfers now.. we have nothing more to play for.. the season has been a disaster.

    4th place every fuckin where .. not good enough.

  41. Keyser

    Franchise – There’s no sarcasm there, you just seem really upset and emotional didn’t want to make it worse.

    I’ve read the Guardiola interview and you have a point of sorts, just don’t think it’s much of one.

  42. David

    No Keyser

    Your the one not making sense…Youre comming up with that shite out your ass…I never said…”so the board forced Wenger to buy, but not enough to buy him outright then and there, just enough so that we could go to the last few minutes of the transfer and force Zenit’s hand into giving him at a cut price value”

    What i said..And have been saying…is that Wenger had 30 million in the kitty and refused to buy ANYONE! NOT JUST FECKING ARSHAVIN.

    This conversation stops now. Slow like a grandmother turtle.

  43. Franchise

    cesc didnt do shit today for the umpteenth time he has been outplayed by anderson WTF. cesc needs to go toughen up. Really cesc our captain??? what a joke? was the best option anyway cos the rest are worse and the vocal one is hated. where are the leaders in this team???? arsene whats going on????????????/

  44. kirby

    and also wolski i went when we knew we was out there is a difference between staying when we are winning and going when losing we by at that point we was out

  45. MARK GOONER

    IS THIS THE WORST WEVE EVER BEEN UBDER WENGER

    YES WITHOUT DOUBT

    LEAGUE FORM IS A JOKE

    FA CUP (EASIEST DRAW UP UNTILL CHELSEA AND WE FAILED)

    EUROPE (EASIEST DRAW UP UNTILL UNITED AND WE FAILED)

    ADEBAYOR
    NASRI
    EBOUE
    SILVESTRE
    VAN P
    SONG
    DENILSON
    BENDTNER
    WALCOTT

    WHO FROM THE ABOVE WOULD MAKE EITHER LEAGUE WINNING SIDES NONE

    WALCOTT IS A YEAR YOUNGER THEN ROONEY BUT ROONEY IS ON ANOTHER LEVEL

    ADEBAYOR CAN FUCK OFF

  46. Keyser

    David – err yeah, sure, thats what you were trying to say, just try to think up ways of expressing yourself that are less retarded thanks.

  47. BOY BETTER KNOW

    calm down guys there’s always next year and the year after that,you just have to be prepared to wait a little longer that’s all.Wenger has done this club wonders c’mon guys see the bigger picture, f.f.s get behind them

  48. paul

    Just back from the game fuck me Arsenal know how to silence a crowd dont they.Maybe Wenger should introduce our players to each other in training tomorrow.We as supporters turned up tonight and yes i stayed til the end,pity some of our players didnt turn up.

  49. Mandanda

    i mentioned this after the 1st leg, manure put out their ‘high work rate’ players – rooney, anderson, fletcher, park – and we couldn’t deal with it…our players are not yet able to deal with different situations.

    I think what we have seen this season is Cesc’ limitation. A world class talent he is, he needs very good players like Rosicky or Hleb around him to function properly. He isn’t a Gerrard, Messi or a Kaka that would drive the team single-handedly

  50. Hitman

    Time for a director of football to oversee transfer policy? To force Wenger to buy. To force him to appreciate where we lack strength in depth (thats everywhere).
    Wenger cant do it all by himself. He needs to someone with a football background to tell him where he is going wrong. If they dont appoint one to please Wenger they should appoint one to please the fans. Wenger has lost my trust on transfers when he cames out with ‘hostage to policy’ nonsense. His only loytalty should be to the fans and history of this club. Not to Alex Song & Abou Diaby. Theres no place for sentiment.

  51. kirby

    bernard they went 1-0 up got a free kick ronaldo holds his ankle it wasnt really a foul thats how you get these decisions these days chelsea got most of the decisions in the fa cup because they slow the game down at the right time. we never used to be honest and thats when we were best. then for some reason ronaldo beats almunia from there 2-0, 3-0 its over read the game this beautiful football is nonsense i cant remember the last time we played it.. thats the reason i left not a disgrace!!

  52. Ja_Gunner

    I think we need two good signings in the summer…but yeah Franchise I think you are right…Arsenal need to work better when they dont have the ball.

    We need team pressure…team defense…you can have all the world class defenders in the world..but if the team dont defend as a unit…then its all for nought.

    We can play fancy football and neglect pressing when we play lower opposition..but against bigger opposition we have to press and mae their life uncomfotable..just like they do to us.

  53. goonermichael

    BBK
    One day you’ll be wrong. I can imagine you before the game at Anfield in 89. Really positive lol

  54. MARK GOONER

    THERE IS 3 YEARS NOT 1 MY MISTAKE

    BUT GET MY POINT, THEO MISSING OVER 2 LEGS

    NASRI MISSING OVER 30 GAMES THIS SEASON
    ADEBAYOR MISSING OVER 2 LEGS
    RVP SELL

    SPENT OVER £230 WITH TICKET AND EVERYTHING ELSE
    AND IM FED UP WITH THIS SHIT

    NAME 1 PLAYER WHO PLAYED 2NITE THAT UNITED WOULD TAKE APART FROM CESC JUST 1 THEN U WILL REALISE WHY WE LOST AND WERE TOTALLY OUTPLAYED OVER 2 LEGS

  55. Keyser

    If only we could buy Lennon, we could start up a Beetles tribute band, Wenger would definetly buy him then.

    or oooh oooh ohh Ashley Young aswell, ooh stoppit now

  56. Franchise

    Mandanda i agree re Cesc and we dont have uefa licences. wenger just wants to rewrite history.

  57. David

    What is Retarded…Is not buying when you have the money to strengthen…when clearly we needed it.

    What is Retarded is being sarcastic about our worst season under Wenger who FAILED and brought it on himself by refusing to buy in the summmer. Cut price or not Arshavin CAME TOO LATE!

  58. wolski7

    In my head no..but in my heart I did and that is what kept me at the game. I am not an AW supporter, in fact I think he shoudl go, yes top four, two semis..but we want silverware and I think he comes up short now. He is getting out thought and does not have the tactical awareness to win the big ones.

  59. Ja_Gunner

    We need someone to come in and drill the players on the defensive side of the game.

    Manure play team defense….

    At one point Ade got the ball inthe final third and 4 Manure players surrounded him…..

    then as Ade paased the ball theywere back to their normal positions. they were so discilplined, they suffocated us.

  60. Franchise

    these kids are too pampered. wenger’s laissez faire approach is not meant for overpaid play station playing privileged young footballers. its meant for matured minds that dont need to be rallied. i would have a work horse in fletcher over ant of our DM and this is not the first time ive said this. many can testify

  61. finestcuts

    You can even see that on Arsenal.com in the post-match review there is a bit of an ironic twist to the final comments:

    “Much will be made of this defeat. It is bound to be analysed, re-analysed and overanalysed.
    However nothing will shake Wenger’s belief in his side. He is convinced their day will come and, given his track record, it surely will. But, unfortunately, this was not their day.

    As a result, Arsenal must look to next season now.”

  62. Hitman

    They dont teach those things in Five aside Ja G.

    Repeat, Wenger needs to adapt his philosophy to the reality of footbal in 2010. His old ways dont work any more.

  63. Bernard Baines

    Also, just seen this Nasri (Not ready yet). . He was our best player tonight easily. Was the only really positive player after the 2 early goals. Will be a big player for us next season.

  64. Franchise

    im fed up with kolo toure

    sagna is shite going forward

    song shouldnt be a starter

    vp does really slow up our counter attacks (myles palmer got that one right)

    ade WTF

    this team is in need of quality players, change os training regime and attitudes

  65. MARK GOONER

    NO PASSION
    NO DRIVE
    NO HEART
    NO PACE
    NO MATCH WINNERS CESC TO SOME EXTENT NOT INCLUUDING ANDREY
    NO LEADERS
    NO WORLD BEATERS

    WE GOT TAUGHT A LESSON TODAY

    AND DESERVED TO LOSE

    I THOUGHT NASRI WAS AWESOME (JOKE, DID HE PLAY, HAS HE PLAYED SINCE JANUARY)
    WALCOTT SCARED OF EVRA
    RVP – CAN HE FIT INTO OUR TEAM???????
    ADE – LEAVE WE NEED PASION AND PACE AND U HAVE NEITHER

    SIGN DEFENDERS NOT UNITED REJECT SILVESTRE

    DONT RELY ON TOMAS OR EDE AS THEY PROBABLY WONT PLAY 20 GAMES BETWEEN THEM

    WHY WAS ARSHAVIN NOT SIGNED IN SUMMER

    WHY???????

    WHAT IS KROENKE GONA DO????????

    WHAT IS WENGER GONA SAY BOUT TONIGHT????????

    HOW MANY GOONERS ARE GONA PAY OVER 2 GRAND FOR THE SAME NEXT SEASON

    IVE PAID OVER 3 GRAND THIS SEASON (TICKET AND TRAVEL)

    THATS 5 TIMES WHAT UNITED CHARGE FOR THER CHEAPEST SEASON TICKET

    IM SO FUCKING ANGRY, BIGGEST GAME FOR SO LONG AND WE DIDNT SHOW

  66. wolski7

    Bernhard agree about nasri. he will be a good player for us next season. Players I do not want next season start with Adebayor…watching him this season he has taken his money and returned naff all. he never denies links with other clubs and tonight he shook hands with evra as he went off…for gods sake!! Seems he wants to be friends with everyone.. Everyone else will stay as they are part of wengers master paln..I justhope he now buys experienced quality players to support cesc, nasri, theo to give them a chance to grow up properly in the game.

  67. Franchise

    ive always maintained that nasri gives us no width on the left. he should play in CM. he’s a different option to cesc IMO they should be fighting for the same position

  68. Hitman

    GM

    This current team would get slaughtered by every Arsenal team since GG took over (except maybe Bruce Rioch and late GG teams). They would be ought fought. If Ade & RVP cant handle Rio & Vidic there is no way they would get past the famous five.
    If they cant handle Anderson & Fletcher & O’shit (for heavens sake, not exactly world class )
    they would soil there pants if they had to play Thomas, Rocky & Davis – thats a midfield.

  69. David

    For Gods sake…That Ronaldo free kick was from 50 yards…what in the blasses was almunia doing??? He had bout 10 seconds to react to that….

    🙁

  70. Bernard Baines

    ‘we the fans have been let down’

    Yeah, top 4 again, semi of the fa cup and champions league. So let down, poor us.

    Dry your eyes you pussy. It’s pathetic. If you’re only supporting to win trophies then buy a man u shirt and quit your moaning. God forbid Arsenal don’t one day end up a middle of the league team not challenging for anything. Mind you, you probably would have changed sides by then

  71. Ja_Gunner

    Well Franchise..if Gallas goes..then I would keep Kolo and team him up with a bigger CB.

    And we dont seem to think things out.

    On the rthird goal Djorou tried hard but could not catch Ronaldo…..if it were kolo running him down…then I believe he would have caught him.

    So I think Kolo should sit back a lil because he is the one with the recovery pace….I dont remeber was it a set piece that resulted in that counter?

    Because if it was a setpiece then Kolo should have been the one to stay back..let Djoru use his height in the box.

  72. goonermichael

    Hitman
    The league nust be easier now then because we are 4th and I know we’ve been worse off in the last 25 years

  73. Franchise

    i would keep kolo but my priority would be to keep gallas and sign him with sm1 else. watch the game again kolo was hopeless defensively. he never closed players down he was always backing off the ball. thats where i respect the likes of terry, carragher, vidic etc and who says we need to spend big vidic cost the same as sagna did

  74. MARK GOONER

    WE ARE ARSENAL

    WE WERE GREAT CLUB BEFORE WENGER

    AND YES HE HAS DONE A GRAET JOB WHEN U ANALYSE HIS TENRE

    BUT WE ARE ENTITLED TO WANT BETTER

    5 YEARS AGO

    VIEIRA
    REYES
    LJUNGBERG
    HENRY
    PIRES
    BERGKAMP

    MATCH WINNERS

    WORLD CLASS

    WHAT NOW, JUST EXCEPT A YOUTH POLICY, NO WE ARE ARSENAL,

  75. Bradys right foot

    The result is very depressing, i’m gutted and i hope young Gibbs can bounce back, sometimes shit just happens.

    This team is different and their losses affect me in a different more personal way than the losses the great teams of our recent past suffered with them I could be more circumspect. Every result has a developmental effect on these young players, and as such I fear their promise could whither with each disappointment. In isolation two semi finals and a 4th place finish may be an adequate return for an injury ravaged season but it still hurts but nothing like some of the “fans” we have and the level of disrespect they show to my club, we have a significant minority of truly awful fans who have no concept or knowledge of what it means to support a club through thick and thin and are only to ready to savage the team and manager when we taste defeat. Our away support in contrast is absolutely incredible.

    Arsenes project remains but we are trophyless for another year giving the full body of our club and support food for thought. I do however remain probably wildly optimistic Arshavin for example while only at the club a few weeks is going to be a huge player for us next year and could be the player to unlock this teams potential.
    The team we had out tonight cost a fraction of Man U’s and while that is certainly not the full story it is a significant footnote. When / if our injury woes are resolved we should be back competing for silverware. Keep the faith Gooners the road to the promised land was never going to be easy and lets get straight back on the road against the Chavs.

    BB most fans predicted the season would end like this. They are entitled to ask why Wenger ignored the obvious. We dont get paid to manage Arsenal , he does. This season was lost last summer when Wenger refused to stenghthen the sqad. His response was judge me at the end of the season. We are judging him.

    Funny Franchise…

    I think Kolo is done as our CB. Hopeless in the air…and falls on his back side MUCH TOO OFTEN. I mean…how many top defenders slip to the ground missing a tackle like Kolo does?

  82. BOY BETTER KNOW

    if there was something positive to say fran,i wouldn’t hesitate to add my opinion,but i ask you what is there to be positive about

  83. BOY BETTER KNOW

    he’s come in and done well i’ll say that lets see what he’s made of next season i won’t judge him now

  84. Ja_Gunner

    Anyway..I think the CBs are not the big problem. I think its team defense that we lack.

    If Vidic and Rio are left exposed..then they would like shit as well. The only thing I would agree with is that we need better heading Cbs.

    But its team defense that we lack.

  85. MARK GOONER

    BBK NEXT YEAR WHEN A CARLING CUP GAMES GOES ON GENERAL SALE TREAT YOURSELF TO A TICKET, THATS IF U WANT TO WATCH A GAME, KNOW HOW SHIT WE ARE

    WHO HERE WOULD SELL VAN P

    12 minute game. thats £5 a minute on my ticket, which is probably what Ade earns. Glad I can fund him. I feel so privilidged. I’m lucky, Arsene says so

  87. Ja_Gunner

    Look what happened to Vidic against Liverpool..He was exposed by Gerrard and Torres.

    In that game Manure were pressing high and got caught.

    In a game like today they played team defense and sat deep..they had five man wall in fornt of them..therefore Vidic and Rio were not troubled.

  88. PDT

    There will be time over the summer to discuss transfers and whether Wenger will buy and who he will buy.

    But today’s a day of mourning.

  89. MARK GOONER

    PDT I WANT QUALITY AS WELL AS EFFORT

    1 WITHOUT THE OTHER IS POINTLESS

    AND WE DID NOT HEV THE QUALITY 2NITE

  90. David

    We had better start killing Denilson, Song an Diaby…our season is already over. Or was it over when Cesc got injured?

  91. Ja_Gunner

    I think in order to make best use of the players we have..maybe we should try 4-3-3

    I mean we get rid of Ade and play like this.

    ……………….Al/Fab…………….

    Sagna…….Kolo/Gallas….New CB…….Clichy

    ………………Song/Den/New DM…………..

    ………Cesc/Diaby…………..Nasri/Rosicky

    …..Theo/Vela……..RVP/Bent……..Arsh/Eddy…

    This way Arsh gets to play far up the pitch….two creative players behind him in Cesc and Nasri/Rosiky

    and DM cleaning up as well.

    RVP and BENT are not that fast…so let them stay in the centre.

    Theo/Vela have speed up front and Arshy and Eddy.

    They can switch flanks accodingly…like tonight I would switched Walcott to the left to test O Shea……and he could have had a shot from the left instead of passing all the time.

    AND LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST..WE NEED TO WORK ON TEAM DEFENSE.

  92. Arindam@KOL

    Makes my blood boil really :
    comments from AW :
    We don’t blame individuals but it’s like that. We conceded two in three minutes and that’s too much against a side that defends well and which likes to counter attack.We don’t blame individuals but it’s like that.

    Did you say defend Arsene ? Glad to know you think such a thing exists.

    A text one of my Manc Buddies sent to me…

    Arsenal fans… amongst the most bitter, foolish fans in the world. Perennial losers examplified by their constant bottling of the team they support. Somehow these bitter fans find the need to rain on others parade. Personally I have nothing against Arsenal but when Arsenal fans talk trash about CHAMPIONS… I get pissed… 4th place? Like Really? Always? Are you anymore title competitors than Wigan? You can beat the other members of the top 4… guaranteed you will finish 4th. But the trash talk doesn’t stop..

  94. Bradys right foot

    Their is a general concensus that we are weak at the back. We have conceded to date 11 goals at home in the PL, less that the other top four teams and we have interestingly also scored more goals away from home than anyone else. Given the disruption to our backline this season 11 goals conceded in the league at home is what good or bad defending?.

  95. Ja_Gunner

    OH AND FINAL PIECE OF THE PUZZLE IS REPLACE ONE OF SAGNA OR CLICHY…THEY ARE GOOD DEFENSIVELY BUT POOR ATTACKING.

    AT BARCA THEY HAVE ONE EXCELLENT ATTACKING FULLBACK IN DANI ALVES.

    THE OTHER SIDE IS NOT AS GOOD…BUT YOU ONLY NEED ONE.

    SO I WOULD INSTURCT SAGNA AND CLICHY IN THE SUMMER TO PRACTISE THEIR SHOOTING AND CROSSING.

    OR WE NEED TO GET A NEW FULL BACK…MAYBE LIKE ZHIRKOV..THE RUSSAIN. HE IS HAILED AS THE RUSSIAN RONALDINHO!!!!!
