We need to win today, a loss would end it. I’m backing a win. A BIG WIN!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Ok I think I was slightly lifted by Arsene Wenger’s ‘why I didn’t buy comment’ he said Chamakh was not available as Bordeaux wanted him for the Champions league run up and Valencia wouldn’t let David Villa go, what, does that mean we asked? It sure does sound like it and as I read that on Pravda, I believe it was said.

So we at least tried to sign David Villa, I will believe we tried to sign him and on that basis I am not too upset we failed to buy a new striker. Dzeko had big ears anyway!

Today is the biggest game of the season, today we find out if we have a chance of winning the title, today we have the best squad available to us that we’ll have all season, bar possibly Vermaelen, today there are no hiding places, today is it.

We are facing a team that is playing it’s best football this season, although today they will be without Ferdinand and Vidic. I think Vidic is still injured and although Ferdinand seems to disregard any rule to the contrary, I really think he is banned for this one.

We need to attack them down the flanks, hold them in the middle, defend well and unleash the deadliest attacking players in world football on them.

Gael Clichy needs to have a big game as does Sagna, Evra is the key to their fast counter attacking and he needs to be sat on, much the same as Rooney, this is my team today.


Sagna Campbell Gallas Clichy

Rosicky Cesc Nasri/Song

Walcott Bendtner Arshavin

I’ve put Nasri or Song, if Song is fit then Song and put Nasri in instead of Theo. I think Theo could have one of those games and tear them apart with his pace and jinky runs, so him as an impact sub would suit me, Eduardo is injured I think, so he drops himself, but it’s time to unleash little and large and say to hell with it.

Arshavin and Bendtner could be the partnership we have been waiting for, the bull and the china shop, the height we need of that there is no doubt, the talent remains to be seen, so go forth today Nikki and show the world just how good you are, go and re-arrange their goal difference son!

I am having us down for a convincing win, no predictions so don’t worry, but today I believe all the hard work and posturing will come good, it has to because if we don’t win this, with the no morals chavs, nicking a win from John ‘best mate girlfriend shagger’ Terry scoring (is there a god?) then we can’t afford to lose more ground.

Arsene, the boys need to be shown the league table, go out there and prepare the men for battle, tell them what it means to football, to decency and to God, tell them that nothing short of a win will do, tell them they are the reason you haven’t bought (and it’s nothing to do with your bonus)

Tell them they are the Arsenal and that to win is what they were born for, nay, what they exist for!

Have a great day Grovers, today is our destiny!!!

    Top motivational work there Geoff!

    I think we’re going to have a blinder out there today… I’m covinced!

    It looks like you’ve got a tasty team out as well…

    Interesting about David Villa! I can’t imagine we bid 30mill for him! Still, if we tried, we tried… better than knowing we failed in a bid for Carlton Cole!

    I’m off to play football… have a good one!

  2. tonyadamsisgod

    Geoff – Yes man!!!! My mutt mate it into the sidebar!!!! Only one thing could make this day even better!!!!

  3. Aj

    Come on Arsenal! Get in there! Heres waiting to watch a cracking demolition of the devils, even better, an exorcism of the demons! We love you ARSENAL, we do!

  4. SUGA3

    good post, Geoff – agreed, only a win does it fot mo todat too!


    ‘SUGA3 would like to blame injury situation for being outside the top10’:lol:

  5. Geoff

    Morning all, today we need to be in their faces from the off, I remember the semi final last year and for the first ten minutes we were awesome, then disaster, today they don’t have the wetback and we are a better team, as a team, so I hope we go at them form the off.

  6. gnarleygeorge9

    Wow was that Pedro……..no itwas Geoff. Great stuff that. Get in boys! Do it! Theo @ the sharp end might be a bit too much for the “bland northerners” to handle.

  7. gnarleygeorge9

    The Arsenal definitely has a better squad, but SAF has the ability to pull one out of where the sun don’t shine.

  8. arsenalrule

    buzzing for this game, where are you all drinking before?
    hopefully Vermaelen will be available, don’t really trust sol against rooney at the moment! Hopefully Wenger is eating marmite on toast this morning, so he won’t feel a need for it later!

  9. tonyadamsisgod

    I know it sounds stupid but what we need to do today is score more goals than they do. I say that because I tremble at the thought of Rooney v Sol. Wouldn’t it be good if Sol got his revenge on him today!!

  10. ethangunner

    So we at least tried to sign David Villa
    common sense !

    is wenger wildly in tune with an eye for quality ?
    ok so if we recognize we need a player like that and have money for it ?

    ok then ill ask the obvious question..
    why cant we pry either away from their respective clubs if both are almost up on their contracts ?

    surely both or either club(s) must want to at least swap figures … for fear of their players leave on a free …

  11. Jay

    Victory Through Harmony!

    Come On Arsenal… I can’t tell you how important this game is to all of us supporterrs.. Get in there.. Chammone!

    Great Post – I hope the crowd lift the team and keep them there, i know the players know how important this game is!

  12. Micky Did It 89

    Great post.
    Rousing call to arms.
    Henry V, Nelson, Churchill, Geoff.
    “Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more, or close the wall up with our Arsenal dead”.

  13. ethangunner

    its 2nd V’s 3rd , cant get much closer ,
    im not going to call it …
    i cant …
    a manc fan will tell you its 1st vs 4th ..

    but whatever the outcome of the game ,it will be a ripper !

  14. Le Foxe

    Quality!! Sitting in the office trying my very bestest to remain calm in the lead up to the game. And then i read this. And now i cant sit still!!!

    Come on you gunners!!!!!!!!!

  15. ikon

    arsenal manu matches are the highlights of every season.
    Today is going to be no different.
    As for prediction it all depends on how confident we are at the back. We will score no doubt about that if Bendtner plays. Sol has done well but I think Vermaelen playing will be crucial in the defensive stability that we hope for. Gallas meanwhile is having a blinder of a season and I hope he continues today.

  16. chozzer

    Love ‘the bull and the china shop’….

    Terry Christian, Angus Deayton, Mick Hucknall, Lisa Riley and Bobby Charlton, your boys are gonna take a hell of a beating.

  17. Geoff

    Great breakfast Micky.

    Sexy, you have been put in moderation by Pedro, I don’t know why, but I’m letting you out, don’t let me down son!

  18. Moray

    Morning all!

    I’m watching Murray get ripped a new asshole by Federer. Hopefully, this is a sign of what we will do to the Utd team later today. They are shit, but can still pull a rabbit out with the force of their desire…so we really need to want it more than them.

    Who else thinks we put in a cheeky offer of 10m euros and a handjob from Pat Rice for Villa? Just nice to be mentioning players like that again in relation to the Arsenal – fuck Smalling (who he? we have Villa…it could happen).

  19. big dave

    We all felt this way just b4 we played the chavs, then we got beat.

    We owe utd one want to win so bad, a draw for both teams is no good. someone just kill chelsea ffs

  20. Moray

    Geoff, I agree…I think we need to sew up that little prick Evra. And we need our midfield to shut supply off to Rooney so that the no-discipline-troll starts to drop back to get the ball. i.e. out of our danger area.

    I have a good feeling about this game that I haven’t had for a while.

  21. alex

    Vidic is available for them.

    No way can Theo get past Evra.

    Sagna Gallas Verm/Sol Clichy
    Cesc Song Rosicky
    Nasri Bendtner Arshavin

    But Wenger will probably stick Denilson in somewhere

  22. afc53

    spot on about Theo what has happened to him id love him to have a stormer and keep Evra pegged back.

    Come on boys we need this win its been a long time to be without silverware.

  23. Baxter Wall

    Man Utd will come to avoid defeat, sit back and hit us on the break. Smash in an early goal and i think we could have 5!!

  24. High Power Mutant

    Geoff, I thought you didn’t buy the bs that comes from A.com. The Villa deal, seems like a smokescreen to me

  25. GunningHead

    It’s about time we make those Mancs pay for the Champions League exit last year and above all, the diving-Rooney-penalty earlier in the season when we played them off the park and still lost. A draw is a loss in my opinion especially after the Villa.

    Prediction: 4-1 Arsenal!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Come on you bleeding gooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ethan: there shall be no divisions in our ranks on the field of battle today. Kill, kill, kill.
    agreed !
    however its old double agent wenger im worried about .
    if denilson starts we might have to use him in the wall for the breach also πŸ™‚

    Great post btw Geoff. Proper got me up for this!
    too much information πŸ™‚

  28. Gunner8

    Morning all, I have not felt this confident about facing the Mancs for sometime… …they will they try and play Giggs and Scholes again today? If they do we will tear them apart as they don’t have the stamina for twice a week.

    I m excited, this is it!

    Geoff, you S&Bing it today?

  29. cashmoe

    well we all fired up but then i wont keep ma hopes too high yh i want us to win but den i will stick ma moni on a draw !!!!

  30. Geoff

    Thanks Baxter! Gunner8 no mate, I’m not there today. High Power, when Pravda write it, he has said it, whether or not it’s true, I don’t know, I can fantasise though!

  31. cescgal

    gr8 post Geoff, its a miracle wenger went for villa,, lets go goooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnners, we can get all the three points, n the nike advert, RED laces, is awsome!

  32. arsenalrule

    I don’t understand the wording on the site though “Why I have not bought until NOW”
    surely that means he has bought someone?!?!?!

  33. charlie gander

    come on u gunners!!!!! lets turn them dirty manc cunts over, i dnt care wat ne1 says 2day is a must win to giv boys momentum for chelski game id hate us to draw this then lose to chelski.

  34. BozinT

    Morning all!

    Great stuff there Geoff, especially Super Nick re-arranging their GD. πŸ˜€

    I sure hope we win today, and I feel like we will!

    Off to play my share of footy this week, cheer all!

  35. Anonymous

    I see rooney getting four goals agen for a 4-0 thrashing which will show for those who dont know arsenal cannot win the league and will come third. Jokes, i think it will be a gd game and u probably will win about 3-2 with bentnar getting two and arshavin getting the other abd then for man u rooney getting one and giggs getting one. bt i thought u shid hv lost against villa and the only reason u didnt was because they were having a bad day in front of goal and the referee was obviously a londoner who doesnt want the fa to get any complaints because ur one of the teams along with all the top 4 west ham and totenham who makes the fa all there profit thought u should hv lost two nil imo

  36. Geoff

    Bozin I like that too mate!

    Gunner8, I’ve been invited to a box!

    Sorry for anyone in moderation, I’m in and out and Pedro’s playing football, if you’re new, we’ll let you on as soon as we can.

  37. skandibird

    Denilson quote: ”DENILSON VOWS TO MAKE EVRA EAT HIS WORDS” – that’s all right then…. we’ll definitely win.

    Don’t believe a word about Villa, in fact I don’t believe anything Mr A says anymore when it comes to buying players until I see them in a AFC shirt, that way I’m not disappointed when the door is shut on deadline day.

    Watching Sunday Supplement – can’t understand why they all ‘support’ JT, it seems that cheating and allegedly getting your best mates other half pregnant and making her have an abortion is ok? They’re also scoffing at Wayne Bridge saying he will not play for England if JT is playing, hmm, wonder if their own wife cheated with one of their colleagues, would the attitude be the same??

  38. Geoff

    Skandi they have no moral compass, any of them, it’s the same for Tiger Woods, you’d think he was the victim. Trailer trash Britain.

    As for Denilson, if Wenger plays him again, I will seriously doubt Wenger’s judgement again.

  39. tommo

    hey up guys!

    you cn do it today im after you to beat the manc scum 2-1. cesc n clichy to both bang em from 20+ yards!!

  40. Stevie

    Geoff – Fantastic blog this morning mate, very Russell Crowe (Gladiator) & Mel Gibson (Braveheart) I can almost here the theme tunes as I read it.

    “Yes. Fight and you may die. Run and you will live, at least awhile. And dying in your bed many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that, for one chance to come back here as young men, and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but the will never take our freedom?”

    Mel Gibson Braveheart

  41. Stevie

    And the one from Gladiator

    “Three weeks from now, I will be harvesting my crops. Imagine where you will be and it will be so. Along the line, stay with me. If you find yourself alone, riding in green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled for you are in Allysium and you are already dead. What we do in life echoes in eternity.”

    Now I really feel ready for the game, perhaps Wenger could use these……

  42. Baxter Wall

    Quick somebody chuck a grenade into the Sunday Supplement studio. What a bunch of fucking wankers. I hope they all get Aids and die.

  43. nishanth

    We lost two games against Manchester United in the Champions League but we learned from both,” said the Brazilian.

    “I remember Evra saying it was men against boys. We’re not boys any more, I am a man and I’ll show that on the pitch.

    “I don’t like to talk too much off the field, I just want to show it out there.”

    Looks like the players are all fired up.I hope we fucking thrash them

  44. skandibird

    Bligh me, it’s cold out there, now dreading sitting on my cold plastic chair (albeit padded) and using the ladies toilet removing 200 hundred pieces of clothing, these are the times I wish I was a boy, only needing to ‘unzip’ seems bliss compared to what us girls have to do just to have a wee wee.

  45. SUGA3

    I would consider starting Eboue in place of Walcott to rough up ‘The Man’ Evra for ‘The Boy’ Walcott to tear him a new one after he gets the shit kicked out of him πŸ˜‰

  46. tonyadamsisgod

    Chozzer – You heard it here first! I broke the news that it was Wayne Bridge’s Mrs 1 day before the papers and that she got pregnant and had an abortion 2 days before the papers!! I might as well be one of the 3am girls, ha ha!! πŸ˜€

  47. reggie 57

    There were other nights where he would be quite drunk on the way home in the car, and end up playing footsie with Vanessa, while Toni was there. One night when he was doing it Toni smacked his leg and said, ‘That’s my foot, you idiot’.

    Jon Terry what a leg end!!

  48. Rohan

    Our team can atleast walk the talk. If there was an award for the player with the best talk, Nikki B would win the Ballon D’Or year in year out. πŸ˜€

  49. tonyadamsisgod

    Stevie – I watched Edge Of Darkness on Friday night. Mel’s still got it!! he should definitely do another Martin Riggs adventure!!

  50. Rohan

    “Toni just seemed to put up with it all. I don’t know if she’s become more suspicious recently, but she has dyed her hair brown. Everyone thinks it’s to match Vanessa.”

    haha, is this a fucking joke!!

  51. goonermichael

    Terry is 100% 18 carat pure chav scum.

    here’s a relavent quote for you

    his dad was a cunt, he’s a cunt and he’ll have cunt kids.

    From Harry Brown

  52. goonermichael

    I think he’s an excellent role model as England captain. And there’s always stevie me to take his place.

  53. tonyadamsisgod

    goonermichael – That sounds suspiciously like the quotes from In Bruges….

    Ken: Harry, let’s face it. And I’m not being funny. I mean no disrespect, but you’re a cunt. You’re a cunt now, and you’ve always been a cunt. And the only thing that’s going to change is that you’re going to be an even bigger cunt. Maybe have some more cunt kids.

    Harry: [furious] Leave my kids fucking out of it! What have they done? You fucking retract that bit about my cunt fucking kids!

    Ken: I retract that bit about your cunt fucking kids.

    Harry: Insult my fucking kids? That’s going overboard, mate!

    Ken: I retracted it, didn’t I?

    What a film…. πŸ˜€

  54. reggie 57

    Best joke for a long time

    Wayne Bridge sent his missus a replica of his cock made from Cadbury’s chocolate…..

    ….she said she prefers Terrys.

  55. Geoff

    I hate that anti-English cunt, whenever he loses a point, he holds his back, cunt was fucking hammered by a better player and nicer person, ha, ha, fucking ha!

  56. SUGA3

    dunno if anyone mentioned it on here yet, but Arsenal was the first football team in history to have their games broadcasted live on the radio and TV πŸ˜‰

    puts today’s 3D thing into perspective, eh?

  57. tonyadamsisgod

    I dont know who I hate more out of Federer, his Mrs, Murray or his fucking mum!!

    Nah, fuck that I do, Its Murray’s fucking mum!!
