Take out thy sword and smite thine enemies. Book of Revelations 3.1

by & filed under Uncategorized.

So that’s what we need to do and that’s what the score should be, Arsenal need to avenge the defeat of the grown ups and they need to restore the pride of North London.

After the complete collapse of the first team on Sunday, it’s over to the kids to show Wenger how it’s done.

We also need to avenge that dark day when Ade-the-whore stamped on Robin’s face and ripped out the heart of the travelling fans, and if they throw their entire team of over hyped, over paid superstars at us, then we’ll fight them in the shade!

I think he should play Rosicky, Nasri, Walcott and Eduardo as they all need playing time, they don’t all become bad players overnight and they will want to make it up to us.

We should get the chance to see Ramsey, Wilshere, Merida and Eastmond in midfield and hopefully we should see what players with a bit of fight in them looks like.

I expect to see Watt and maybe Sunu make an appearance and Eboue, Senderos, Silvestre and Traore will make up the defence, Fabianski will probably be in goal but I wouldn’t be surprised to see his compatriot who’s name I can’t pronounce, so I’ll say Wolfman to make it easier.

I know we still have a day to go until we play shitty, but I wanted us to get over Sundays debacle quickly, move on swiftly and give us all something to hope about, which is revenge and of course another semi final to play in.

And remember Ade, Revenge, that’s a dish best served cold, prepare to have it rammed down your greedy throat you horrible monster.

Adebaytheif

Have a better day today Grovers, tomorrow we could well have something to smile about and get part of our season back on track!

P.S. If you get the chance, take a look and see what sort of punishment Wrighty7 took on the chin after the Chav game here!

    I heard a perfect analogy of Arsenals performance against Chelsea, the scene in Raiders Of The Lost Arc where Indy comes face to face with this guy brandishing the swords, moving them around so beautifully he looks like he is so deadly, until Indy just turns around and shoots the fucking guy dead.

  2. Sparrow

    Our Second polish keeper is great, I think he is better than Fab and Al, shame he is on loan… Every game I have seen him play he has been so solid. He is probably going to drop a clanger soon!!

    Hi Geoff.

    IMO Wenger should play exactly the same starting lineup as started on Sunday, and for three reasons.

    1. As pennance for such an unacceptable performance.

    2. Because none of them deserve a “day off”.

    3. Because Sunday was a large dose of realism, this trophy is the only trophy this bunch of chokers are likely to win, and as such Wenger can no longer afford to pick and choose which competition to try to win.

  4. SUGA3

    morning all…

    great read, thanks 😉

    Szczesny must work on his upper body strength to become the next VdS – yes, he is streets ahead of the other 3 on our books talent wise…

    still can’t believe how we didn’t buy Given to make it:

    – Given
    – Fabianski
    – Szczesny
    – Some Kid from South America

  5. charybdis1966

    Morning all,
    Stonroy, funny you should mention that but originally they were going to film a long fight sequence at that point, but I believe Harrison ford had a bit of the Delhi belly and didn’t feel up to filming such a physically demanding sequence just then and said “Why don’t I just shoot him?”.

  6. SUGA3

    second that DDM – no fucking around this time, no ‘zis team eez still very young’ bullshit…

    we are going for the throat 😉

  7. dennisdamenace

    JB64 – I know mate, after all as Arsene said we were great, we were cheated lah blah blah…….

    Did you catch Denilson’s mini interview on SSN yesterday afternoon?

  8. Duke

    Morning,
    Geoff, just for the record, I think Merida is suspended, something to keep in mind for the preview tomorrow, so don’t put him in your starting line-up. But also don’t just take my word on it, I might be mistaken, but that is what people were saying on here after he got sent-off against Villa for our reserves.

  9. SUGA3

    there was a video of an exhibition fight between a boxer and capoeira loving fancy dan on another blog – really summed it up…

  10. gnarleygeorge9

    “Take out thy sword & smite thine enemies”

    Geoff shouldn’t we fire up the old 12 inch guns & pound the scum to oblivion. We are The Gunners afterall 🙂

  11. choy

    morning all..

    Wenger is set to start with the kids…

    The senior team needs to rest it seems, considering they haven’t done a lot lately I wonder why?

    Well I think we’re going to get spanked!

    Hughes job is not safe unlike wenger’s and he badly needs a win!

  12. dennisdamenace

    For me, out No.1 & No.2 GK’s are simply not good enough, our No.3 is bordeline, but may prove to be the real deal, our No.4 definitely has the potential.

    However, what that then screams out for is a true Number 1, someone of quality that the two Polish ‘keepers can learn from. WTF will they learn from that Spanish clown?

  13. gnarleygeorge9

    No worries BR 🙂 Anyone catch Geoff’s staring role as himself I posted. My, what big teeth he has 😉

  14. dennisdamenace

    Sab – Injury concerns?? Over who?? And for what?? Wenger continually blah blah blahs about the squad being strong enough, big enough, good enough etc etc, so therefore so what if we pick up and injury or three, use the so-called quality squad then….

  15. SUGA3

    Fabianski will do as no.2 and will stay a no.2 when Szczesny will be ready to step up IMO…

    Mannone is a fucking disaster waiting to happen – I would sell him and Almunia, then bought a good stop gap for Szczesny 😉

  16. Duke

    Suga, care to share that video with us?
    ddm, I agree, I think Fab2 is a great talent, but can’t learn much from Al…Bring Dave in to teach him a few things, who is our goalkeeper coach by the by?

  17. finestcuts

    I agree Suga, we should have bought Given and also imo Schwarzer, with those 2 we’d be sound. But now is Fabianski’s time to step up. This should be Almunia’s last season for Arsenal. I also agree about Szczesny, but for now it should be Fabianski no.1 Manonne no.2.

  18. Big Raddy

    Suga. I would love to see TH back. And so would all the fans at all the grounds we play at….. imagine the vitriol

  19. stonroy

    suga I don’t know if that’s real mate, it looks a little staged to me. no one would flight like such an idiot.

  20. SUGA3

    finest,

    Mannone is a non starter for me – the only thing he does is taking away the game time from Szczesny…

    as much as I’d like our countryman to do well, I don’t see Fabianski as ready – like I said: no.2, a Cudicini type…

  21. Big Raddy

    No Stonroy. Give Theo a run…. he wis the Real Deal. Just needs some game time and the confidence of knowing he is a first team regular. Not just the odd 30 minutes whilst he regains match fitness.

    If we are going to try and sign impossible players, why not sign Messi ?

  22. Sabeel Indian Gunner

    DDM

    u r right about wenger blah blah on how big the squad is, but realistically wenger and the fans know the truth right..
    Is there any point to go to war against wenger and his words made,we have NO control on whats happening at the club.

    the best we can do is NOT turn up for matches…

  23. finestcuts

    Sooner or later it’s gonna catch up, selling Henry in the short run might have seemed a good idea but definitely not in the long run. I’d like to see a Superstar striker at Arsenal alongside RVP. Someone like Eto, Villa, a big name quality striker. Or Torres, something like that, Wenger should break the club transfer record to get at least 1 top quality player to add to the team in Jan.

  24. SUGA3

    BR,

    painful as it is to say, Theo is in the worst form of his life – he lost about each and every one on one on Sunday, no purpose, no use…

    other teams give such players a runout in the ressies, and that is why our second string gets spanked by Villa with Downing on the pitch…

  25. SUGA3

    finest,

    quality striker in January seems to be a must, ideally we would need a DM and a GK as well, but there won’t be too much quality around in January bar Akinfeev…

  26. Arse&Nose

    Celtic want Jack Wilshire on loan-

    Fuck off Celtic, you are the whinging cunts who have made sure UEFA impose a penalty ban on us!

  27. gazzap

    People are talking about Hiddink as a replacement at some stage. I dont think he would necessarily be a massive improvement. Look at his record at Chelsea. He had the same players as ancelotti has now and to be fair chelsea were not great last season. they were beatable and finished 3rd quite a way off the pace.
    Under Ancelotti and Mourinho Chelsea have that invincible look about them that they never had under Hiddink.

    I dont pretend to know which manager would compete with chelsea but there must be someone out there.

  28. Jaguar

    PL-3rd place
    CC-Semis
    FA Cup-somewhere
    UEFA CL-quarters

    Zis team is so young.The whole cycle of transition to start again next season,Wenger ‘earning’ his performance bonus.Arent we lucky?

  29. Sabeel Indian Gunner

    GG9,

    okay,u r one of them who r willing to do,but ever pondered for HOW LONG one would that….

    there could be a minority too,who decide not to turn up for matches..

    But…..

    i feel,it is sad and very hard to decide to NOT go to our matches,but even if one does decides to do so,the question is HOW LONG an Arsenal Fan could boycott the matches..Tuf ask to have any meaningful impact…which requires months of couple of years to boycott,to have an affect finanacially…so wenger/club starts spending for experienced players….

  30. Big Raddy

    GG. You are on fire today 🙂

    Suga. He is just coming back and you could point to any one of 9 players and say they were poop against the Chavs.

    All strikers are confidence players. Just look at Eduardo. We know he is a fine player, but right now he looks at best Championship standard. Same with Theo. He needs a couple of starts and a couple of goals.

    If you don’t agree I would ask you to look at his form upon his return from the England hatrick. He looked fantastic, and had he not picked up the injuries, would be our main attacking threat. ….. IMO

  31. Big Raddy

    Sabeel. Good point.

    Look at how well the anti-US rant worked at MU: All that bollocks about how they fans weren’t going to back their team now they were an American conglomerate. They even set up a rival team.

    But OT is packed every week. It just doesn’t work

  32. Sabeel Indian Gunner

    Big Raddy

    If the Club owners and Arsene are ALL mixed up,and on the same page of having to win trophies on basis of Shrewd transfer policy,what can we fans do anything to change that….NOTHING,am afraid

    5 years,can i say,for the spoilt arsenal fan after Arsene won lots of trophies,is a LOT…

    i say this maybe,i think they were LONGER periods in Arsenals history without any trophy in between

    i say this to highlight the need of trophies in 5 years in context of trophies won in 100+ years of Arsenal FC history

  33. SUGA3

    Sabeel,

    it is not about ‘no trophies’ thing – I could live with that if I saw the team that has a fighting chance of winning any – now I see unbalanced bunch of twinkle toed cotton wooled spoilt kids…

    there it is, the myth of Arsenal not liking it up their faces comes to a fruition – being a manager, one should do his best to avoid that…

  34. Pedro

    Sabeel, Arsenal struggled to sell tickets this year and if you don’t think that shareholders question night sent ripples through the establishment… you are mistaken.

    The further away from success we get, the harder it’ll be to sell corporate, the less fans we’ll gain in new territories and the less appealing we’ll be for new players.

  35. gnarleygeorge9

    With a bloke like Kroenke on board with money to spend, maybe its time to move Arsene Wenger to youth development, where he can still work with kids, & bring in a more “I want success now” type manager who is not afraid of spending to get what he wants.

    Just a theory 😉

  36. Pedro

    The ‘spoilt’ fans bollocks pisses me off.

    How about the spoilt players? £100million wage bill and nothing to show for it?

    Who is funding that… oh wait… the fans!

    You can’t charge through the nose and be surprised there is an expectation amongst the punters.

  37. Duke

    Sabeel, if I have to watch a team not win anything for 5 years, like it was back in the day, I want those players to be local boys from in and around Islington and earning my wages. Not kids from around the world who have already earner more in their 20’s than I would have in my life time.
    Without sounding racist, I just can’t identify with this lot. How can you be so lazy and have so little heart in you when you know life has given you a gift, and you get shitloads of money for doing something you love, and don’t have to work for a living past 30?

  38. Arse&Nose

    Big Dave, Wilshire came back from an injury agains Villa in the reserves last week. Villa’s reserve team are a bunch of thugs, who kicked jacks ankles several times and he went off early.

  39. AngeAusArsenal

    just getting over Sundays debacle, 1 hours sleep, a massive fight with Mrs AAA all for what, to watch my team humiliated because of their own lack of heart.
    I wont be getting up at 3 am on a Monday morning unless things change drastically.
    Ive said it before and Ill say it again Schwarzer please and someone like Torres if we’re ever to be taken seriously as a football club

  40. insidealbania

    MOrning Grovers,
    AW will pick the usual CC team while shity will go for a strong team. Our chances of winning are not great, and so I cannot get myself excited about this game at all.
    The manner in which we lost AT HOME to the chavs was so demeaning that right now I have no love at all for those who were selected to play.
    A change is needed at our club because this drama series has run its course.
    Getting 3rd position in the league is achievable but since when was 3rd good enough for out club?
    RVP is out for the rest of the season and I bet you that AW will not get a replacement. Our Season is over, so the only hope of winning something will be in the cups. We will be knocked out of CC tomorrow, we may reach the latter stages of FA cup and CL, but what is the point because as soon as we face strong opposition the players will begin to crumble.

  41. gnarleygeorge9

    Pedro

    The Club always hits the fans hard. I remember when entry fees for the fans on the North Bank went up 25% in one hit. From £4 to £5 🙂

  42. Duke

    Peds, is my comment in moderation or just run off?
    Fuck it, the main points off it:

    Sabeel, if we not going to win shit, then I want our players to be from and in around Islington, earning my wages. Not 20 year old kids from half way around the world, having earner more that I have in a lifetime. They have no heart or desire and don’t feel anything for the club, unlike us fans.

  43. Sabeel Indian Gunner

    Pedro,

    I agree that the lesser the success,the less attractive we become.
    but my question is..
    HOW LONG can a Arsenal Truly stay away from watching the games
    Can you/we put in a number there please,in units of days,weeks,months,years???????

    We need to stay away from matches real long to have any financial affect on the club,in Terms of GATE_TICKETS_REVENURE..

  44. AngeAusArsenal

    Hey Gnarley,

    Id love the poms, the Yanks, beacuse their coach belittled us before the last world cup and the Kiwis.
    I think Mrs AAA would divorce me if i stayed up for that though.isnt it really early monday morning again.

  45. Lewyd24

    Hello people

    Come Jan we should make a bid for Steven Gerrard. My thinking is that he knows Liverpool wont win anything for the next 3 years and he is willing to listen to offers. Put a 30m offer in and see what happens. Fok all to lose really.Sell Diaby for 10m and a couple others for another 10m and he will only cost us 10m. He is 29 now so they cant expect 50m for Gerrard.

    What you guys think?

  46. insidealbania

    Sabeel, we are the fans of the club, why should we stay away? the players should fuck off if they are not good enough.

  47. goonermichael

    Fuck I’m depressed. I’ve got a Manu fan telling me it’s not all over and we played well. And he’s serious. We were spanked by those inbred chav cunts.

  48. Pedro

    Exactly GM!

    Football wasn’t anywhere near the expense it is now…

    Duke, you said the ‘R’ word… that spams comments. It’s out though.

  49. gnarleygeorge9

    Not sure AAA

    The USA? belittled us? A country who’s tough guys are merely fatboys who have to wear padding & helmets 😆

  50. Sabeel Indian Gunner

    Duke,

    It is so hard to believe,but i think u definitely have Good Point there,
    I myself sometimes feel these 20+ players are playing for themselves,NOT for the fans…

    but,well the whole setup now,including the club ownership,manager etc..and are foreign,ala …its like we are all Fans of a Company..where the Company rarely feels for the fans desire,and goes and buys out a couple more experienced players..

  51. MARK GOONER

    lewyd24 no chance, every gooner would love it, but he wont come here and they wont sell and we wont ever bid over 20 mil for player

  52. AngeAusArsenal

    Yeah GG i remember he was interviewed before the last world cup draw and he said he was hoping to get us in the draw because he thought we were easybeats.

  53. goonermichael

    Pedro
    When I was very young I went to football a few times with my grandad and you could just turn up and pay it was cheap.

  54. Jimmythegun

    Mornin all,

    Glad people are picking up on the pain factor. Im not as bothered about the fact that the defeat probably means that we can’t win the title, im more concerned with the lack of effort shown in chasing the game.

    The players were just going through the motions and you can bet that if we were winning 3-0 the opposition would show us exactly how much it hurt…by hurting us! We didn’t even bother to do that!

    I think the players were probably wealking about thinking ‘its alright, Mr Wenger has already told everyone that we always have a bad November, and that the International break has had a big effect on us, so that our excuse.

    I really have to question the wisdom of making the RVP announcement on Saturday too. Its possible that the players already knew, but talk about getting your excuses in early!

  55. insidealbania

    Someone needs to tell AW that we do not need any creative players anymore, the squad is full of creative puffs. We need someone who will not only scare the shit out of the opposition, we need someone to give players like Almunia nightmares if they make any mistakes. We need a nutcase.

  56. ArsenalKenya

    AT the start of the season, I got loads of stick from some Arsenal fans. My prediction was that they wouldn’t win the Premier League.
    A few of those supporters said Thierry Henry was still a legend, unlike myself, because he reckoned Arsenal could clinch the title.

    Sometimes, though, the truth hurts. After the 3-0 battering by Chelsea, it’s a sad fact that Arsene Wenger’s team will come up short. Again.

    They used to be a team that wins things – but not any more.

    There’s no point in trying to find excuses, either. Arsenal were beaten by a better team and I found it extremely difficult to watch the final 30 minutes of the match.

    Despite a game in hand, the 11-point gap is too big for Arsenal to close.

    Manchester United are five points behind Chelsea and I think they, too, will be unable to get past Carlo Ancelotti’s team.

    Right now, Chelsea look unstoppable.

    The key difference for me on Sunday was that the visitors had a prolific main striker and Arsenal did not. They were clearly lacking in that department. Robin van Persie being out for several months is obviously a major blow.

    But I don’t believe Wenger’s team has a player up front who could bring 15 to 25 goals to the table. Those days have gone and I would certainly love Didier Drogba, who has now scored 10 goals in 11 matches against Arsenal.

    The team desperately needs some experience up front.

    A couple of years ago, Alex Ferguson signed Henrik Larsson for Manchester United to beef up his squad with a player who had been round the block.

    Arsenal need to do that and, in January, I’d love to see Arsene Wenger finally spend some money and bring in Ruud van Nistelrooy, who has already indicated he might be interested in a move back to England.

    At least he knows where the goal is and he would be a decent influence on someone like Eduardo, who needs help. I’d even welcome Thierry back.

    I think our midfield and defence is fine but the goalkeeper situation still worries me.

    Manuel Almunia is a good No 2 but not a first-choice keeper for a club looking to win titles.

    At times, he looks out of his depth. Arsenal need a top-drawer keeper but the problem is whether they could attract one.

    A player like Gianluigi Buffon is unlikely to be desperate for a move to the Emirates.

    Arsenal can bully teams like Blackburn at home and hit them for six.

    But that is of no use if they lose away at Sunderland and cave in against their title rivals like they did on Sunday.

    I still believe – and hope – Arsenal can win a cup this season.

    But it’s a shame that the club are only just into December and the league already seems to be drifting away.

    The situation is just depressing.

    The other fear is that the team could finish below Tottenham, although I am confident that will not be the case.

    But the one thing I would say is that under Harry Redknapp, Spurs are now a solid unit.

    Advertisement

    They fought hard at Aston Villa in a match they would have lost 12 months ago but ended up leaving with a deserved point.

    My final point from Sunday’s game is that I was pleased for Ashley Cole.

    Despite getting all that abuse, he was extremely professional and the match went off without incident.

    The fans at the Emirates only hate him because he is such a great player – the best left-back in the world – and is now at another London club that regularly beats Arsenal and wins trophies.

    Although he won the league with Arsenal twice, Ashley has yet to do that with Chelsea – but I think he could be celebrating the championship at Stamford Bridge in May.

    Arsenal do frustrate me and a lot of their fans sometimes as they can play some really brilliant football. They have qualified from their Champions League group extremely easily and I think they have a good chance of beating Manchester City in the Carling Cup tomorrow.

    Yet a team is judged on their defining games and, this season, they have not delivered when they have really needed to.

    I just read a quote from harry redknapp. “Chelsea reminds me of Arsenal’s invincibles” He nust have forgot that you have to be unbeaten to be called invincible. He seems to be trying to wind us up. He should stick to twitching the cunt

    I draw my learned colleagues and fellow Grovers to my 12:34 post above.

    Well they’ve fucking blown it……….again! I don’t know what was more embarrasing, watching that lot ponce around impersonating an Arsenal football team or listening to Arsene Wenger’s post match waffle……

    If AW believes his own verbal tripe then we are in for a long long painful journey Grovers. Because he will play and play and play the same failures until they play one good game, probably against a team like Burnley, so that he can tell all those who are bothered to listen that he has a great team!

    No one in power at AFC will change what’s happening because he makes them money, noting will change with new ownership because they will relish earning shed loads of money off of the back of the cash cow that is Arsenal Football Club supporters……..

    I spent all last night and all today taking flack from Millwall and Charlton supports ffs, not for out abject surrender at home, but for Arsene Wenger’s quite laughable comments in his post match interview.

    I truly truly wanted us to bash those cunts up, and ALL the players let me down. But Arsene has gone beyond the pale for me now. I no longer have any interest in his plans fo AFC and will bide my time until he finally moves on and we can get back to being a proper football club, not a place for self serving idealists.

    If another club had performed so ineptly at home a lot of Gooners would be looking at that club and wondering whether that manager had “lost” the dressing room, think on that….

  59. insidealbania

    Also, I know we have a game in hand, but how bad is are we now that the scum are a place ahead of us in the league in December, this shit was unheard of a few seasons ago.
    And PHW was joking that he doesnt see Spurs and Villa as competition…. well he should think again.

  60. SUGA3

    Sabeel,

    there is a bit of a difference between losing to some teams and getting spanked even when they play shit…

    Sunday was all too predictable – you just knew this was going to happen, looking at the team sheets: any slightest glimmer of hope for no crab football approach disappeared in a puff of smoke…

  61. insidealbania

    Sabeel you cannot win the title if you dont beat the top guns at least once, or get a draw against them. PLUS, do you think we will win against all the other shit teams?? what happened at west ham and sunderland can happen again.

  62. Duke

    Sabeel, if only that was true, out of the top 10 we have lost 4 and won 1 (Spurs). All teams we beat are bottom half of the table, and even there we had a draw with 17th placed West Ham. We have to beat all teams outside the top 3…

  63. ArsenalKenya

    Arsenal have bid €30million for Inter striker Mario Balotelli, but Jose Mourinho wants Cesc Fabregas as part of the deal, according to a report.

    La Gazzetta Dello Sport states that the young Italian is ready for an exit despite his current deal expiring in 2013. The report claims Balotelli’s relationship with Jose Mourinho has become strained, and a January exit is on the cards.

    However, clear-the-air talks are expected between Mourinho and the Palermo-born striker ahead of the transfer window.

    Voices suggest that Inter would be willing to offload Balotelli, but only if the Gunners insert captain Fabregas as part of the deal.

    Neither club has added any substance to the report, but Fabregas recently hinted he wanted to finish his career at the club.

    “I am at a great club, with a great team and am happy,” the Spaniard told PA Sport last week.

    By the way, I am waiting for the AKBs to come and enlighten me to the positives we can take from game on sunday and why it makes perfect sense to throw away the CC tie tomorrow by playing a weak team

    i feel sunderland was the most disastrous game for us,not so much as westham,that after westham we were awake to not concede leads till internationals came along

    so for me..in the argument of trying to beating all other teams other than chelshit,manures…sunderland has been the most disastrous…

    if we had won at sunderland,this chelshit blow would not be as major…as we would affectively be 5 points behind,same as manure

    I hope Walcott and Vela play tomorrow, these guys need games to get into the flow.

    Wenger can not expect to throw in players who never play and expect them to replace RVP. I also hope to see Rosicky, Ramsey, and Nasri get some match practice.

    Come’on gunners.
    Forget the past, fight for the future.

    Also fans, show our class. Don’t over boo Ade. He doesn’t deserve extra attention anyway.

    Go arsene go

    I was going through my memorabilia recently and came across my first Arsenal Season Ticket.

    Cost. 6 pounds 7 shillings and 6pence !! Don’t know how the hell I could afford it.

    My current ticket costs over 1200 of her Majesty’s finest.

    Fuck me, I am an Old Man……
