“I believe we have the unity, the desire, the spirit and I know that before this game there will be a lot of scepticism around us but I believe in my players and in their spirit. We will show that.”
Sometimes, I do wish Arsene would think of something fresh to tell us at his press conferences.
“I believe we should be more relaxed at this time because at the start of the season nobody expected us in the top four or in the title race,”
Comments like the above just enrage fans further. If no one thought we’d compete at the start of the season because of his poor transfer policy, does that mean we should be ok with the fact that we’re out of two competitions and struggling in the Premier League race?
If you didn’t think you’d land that dream job at the start because there were 100 others applying, you got through to the final three and lost out because you forgot to wear a tie and a pair of clean shoes, would you be ok with it because you didn’t expect to get that far? No way. You’d wish you sorted out your problems when you could. Our dirty shoes and missing tie are a striker and midfield cover.
The expectation should always be that we’re going to compete… challenging when you’re Arsenal should never be a bonus.
We’ve got the only PR firm that is so useless they can’t detect a story that contains a conflicting message.
‘Yes, we did try to sign someone’ —- followed by —–> ‘In England, it seems all the problems are sorted out by buying players. I don’t believe that.’
Sorry Arsene? You don’t believe in signing players to solve a problem yet you just admitted tried to sign a player, and we know that you were in for Smalling. Are you completely off your rocker?
I don’t want to hear…
We were very, very close to a new signing.
I’ve heard the player was Thomas Sorenson, others believe it was Loic Remy. I reckon he’s having us on, he probably shared a taxi with Spurs new signing Gudjohnson, he’s got us on a technicality! Regardless of who it was, we didn’t get them. A failure of Gazidis and a failure of Arsene Wenger to do the right thing and purchase at the start of the window.
If you’re hoping for some action in the summer, forget about it, Wenger’s favourite excuse is there for the taking this year… THE WORLD CUP! You know how prices go up in the summer, don’t you!
So, here is the full list of excuses –
- World Cup
- Euro Championships
- Inflated transfer market
- Having to wait for City, United or Chavski to buy players
- Killing the career of a youngster
- Giving money to other teams strengthens them
- The solution isn’t always to buy
- My bonus will shrink
- Our budget includes wages as well as transfers, plus, despite record profits and player sales, we’re skint.
George, if the press conference was a person, how would gesture to it?
Couldn’t have put it better myself. I believe that finger was also the one Fabio Capello raised to John Terry as he removed his captaincy. Oh, and the one he raised to Jason ‘Being a scumbag is ok as long as you’re a footballer’ Cundy.
I love being lectured on morals by the sanctimonious bunch of scoundrels they have running talk s*ite. It’s akin to being taught financial prudence by a stock broker or having your marriage counseled by Tiger Woods.
So, onto team news. Diaby is facing a late fitness test which means Denilson will probably retain his place in the team. I’m keeping every digit crossed he’ll be ok, as a precaution I’ve taken up 6 religions and I’ve prayed to all their gods. Nik B didn’t get a mention, so he should start which means Arshavin will be allowed to devastate on the wing. Below is the team that will take the Chav’s apart!
Sagna Gallas Vermaelen Clichy
Song Cesc Diaby
Rosicky Bendtner Arshavin
Seriously, I truly believe we’ll turn Chelsea over. I think the revelations of sl*t-gate have cast a large grey cloud over the Chelsea dressing room. Last week JT came out fighting because he had something to save, this week, he’s lost his captaincy, he’ll feel deflated more than anything. Wenger reckons the influence of the captain is overplayed, says the man whose last proper captain that won trophies will be turning out for City this weekend. Wenger thinks the English have an obsession with Captaincy because we’re a warrior nation. Spot on Arsene, there’s your problem, we have very few warriors in our team. Would Nelson have allowed one of his men to be out run by a ref on the pitch? No way… he’d have been given 20 lashes! That point tells us a lot about how out of touch you’ve become.
Where were we? Ahh, a depressed, untrustworthy leader in charge at the Bridge, lovely!
I think we’ll nick it by one and we’ll keep a clean sheet. I just can’t see us losing, this season is too crazy for the obvious the happen.
I feel in a world of confidence… I hope you do too!
Onto something of a more serious nature. Now, I’m not one for bringing my politics to the blog, but after the whole climate-gate fiasco which was pretty much entirely exposed by the bloggers of the world, the ruling elite are looking to put an end to web anonymity by making all site owners register their details with their Government and apply for a license. You may think I’m talking rubbish here, but it doesn’t take long to find mainstream reviews of the idea in Time magazine and the NYT (Both authors unsurprisingly backing the idea).
Just to put the proposal in perspective. The Chinese tried to implement a similar thing but it was deemed too draconian even for a communist Government!
The big corporate media sites want the web back due to plummeting web traffic and weak hard copy sales. Government want to be able to get on with their own agenda without having to debate the reality of their lies and they need a strong main stream media for maximum effect.
Why should this matter to you?
Well, if you’re here, you like to get your news from blogs who will cut through the crap. Sadly, blogging will be a target. It’s easy to silence a dissenting voice if you can easily access their personal details. Say, for example, a corporation didn’t like what you were saying about them, they could file a costly law suit against you and force you to shut down because you couldn’t battle the case without bankrupting yourself… regardless of whether you were speaking the truth. Dissent would become easily manged.
So, the reason I’m highlighting this issue is because unless you share this info, web licensing will probably creep through the back door. So when you read stories about how hate websites are fueling the next generation of terrorists and you demand a solution… just be aware of the consequences when the solution put forward is a ‘web license’.
Thanks for reading, I appreciate it’s a little off topic but Le Grove was founded as a dissenting voice. Though we’re not performing a crucial role in society, many other sites are. Web anonymity and the free flow of information has helped create a true online democracy, one of the last bastions of free speech.
I’d hate to see that freedom eroded.
Have a marvelous Saturday! Remember, if there’s a God, I’ve prayed to him… bases covered.
