CL brings comedy to Milan / Beckham’s had it / Tonight the laugh will be on Porto.

by & filed under Uncategorized.

So I started to watch the mancs play the easiest knockout game in the ECL, but had to laugh when I saw the snippet that said this, it was talking about granny shagger Rooney and the snippet said this makes 50th CL APP tonight, which read as ‘CLAPP’ which I thought was apt, given his antics, if only manc loving Sky realised their gaff, I sure as hell did, well done Sky Sports, hilarious!

I hope Fabio was watching because the Italian press said Beckham was like a waxwork dummy, and last night proved if we take him to South Africa, we must be nuts.

Onto us and the big game tonight, Fabianski is in goal, which isn’t great, but it’s better than having to endure another gaff strewn evening from Almunia, Fab, prove you are worthy and put in a great performance, I think Gallas is out too so that means powerhouse Campbell steps in, no problems there, I also think Song is out so the boss has to decide on Eastmond, Denilson or maybe a 4 man midfield instead, here’s what I would do.

Fabianski

Eboue Campbell Vermaelen Clichy

Rosicky Cesc Diaby Nasri

Walcott Bendtner

I think that team would score goals and protect our goal at the same time, 4-4-2 would be a good move considering the problems, and we wouldn’t have to put in youngster Eastmond or rubbish Brazilian Denilson.

We can attack at will, with pace and height and defend from the middle, so we won’t be exposing ourselves as we do with a 4-3-3, I wouldn’t be unhappy to use Ramsey either but not Denilson, anyone other than him. I would even suffer Eboue in the midfield rather than Denilson, at least he has pace and can defend.

We need to get in their faces and shut the crowd up early, this is our last real chance of any silverware, and a good result would give us the confidence to go all the way, and don’t forget, we have Robin to come back in April.

Kyle Bartley is getting rave reviews in Sheffield, is he the one to step up next season? I don’t know, trying to buy Smalling doesn’t suggest he will, but we also have Djourou and Nordveit or whatever his name is.

Porto are about as good as Villa, dangerous in spells but not that good, we shouldn’t underestimate them in the same way we wouldn’t underestimate Villa, but we are by far the greatest team the world has ever seen. I know we are, because we all sang that against Liverpool and won, so it must be true.

Don’t forget Arsenal, Porto were a team managed by a chav scumbag, we owe them, and two wins in a week against a chav connected side would be absolutely brilliant.

So go and get a famous win tonight boys, a draw will do, but a win would all but seal it, they call their centre forward the Hulk, why? Is it because he let someone die in a car accident? Is it because he got exposed to radiation whilst conducting experiments? NO, it’s because he’s crap at football and bats for the other side, just like that one trick pony the Hulk, from DC fame.

Screw them Arsenal, show us why we love you so much, prove to your manager you are all worth what we pay you, and why the club won’t buy players, this is no dress rehearsal, this is it, tonight you play in the most important game of you careers, I know you can do it, the manager knows you can do it, tonight is up to you.

I don’t do predictions, but Carling do and they told me 2 nil to the team that plays in red…honest!

Finally Pedro sent me a list of Europe’s top earners, we have only Arshavin in the top 50, so I can see why all the Cesc rumours are being bandied about, maybe if we stopped paying so much for the ordinary fringe players, we would have the money to give him more. We have players like Jay Simpson who seem to be on permanent loan whilst we keep players like Denilson in the squad, we have players like Randall, Hoyte and Gilbert that seem to hang around for ever but never play so why? I think we should have a long hard look at our massive squad of averageness and whittle it down to a group of top players, I bet we’d even get change if we did that.

Hey and all this talk of we couldn’t afford David Villa’s wages, he earns the same as what Cashley and the 50 year old Vieira does. Hmmm!

Have a great night Grovers, win or lose, have a booze, tonight I feel it in my bones, we’ll be doing both. Winning and boozing!

Finally, a big fat P.S. from Le Exchange. We have loads of buyers, no sellers! If you have spares, don’t let them go to waste. Use our free exchange service and Let Le Grove put you in touch with someone who’ll buy them off you. E-mail address is in the side bar —>

    we had a fucking week off yet we’re so poor at times, hanging onto it too long, passing to them, picking the wrong pass etc etc. sol played alright tonight but he’d be taken to the fuckin cleaners by a good striker. why havent we got more experienced players to choose from? sol must’ve felt like a fucking grandad. i mean, his fucking captain’s 13 years younger than him. we surely can’t go out to these. i can’t see us not scoring at the emirates.

  2. KingVela

    Fabianski – Fucking tool
    Sagna – ok game
    Verminator – Solid
    Campbell – Experience showed how inexperienced everyone else is
    Clichy – shit form, drop him
    Denilson – Pointless
    Diaby – good player, shit game
    Nasri – ok
    Rosicky – looked lively, should have had penalty
    Fabregas – been a lot better
    Bendtner – was he even fucking playing?

    1) We need a goalie desperately
    2) What’s the point of playing a defensive midfielder if he’s just as shit at holding back as any of the others? Boy did we miss Song (and I never thought I’d say that!) Our midfield our ok on the ball, but without it they’re a bunch of lazy bastards
    3) We need a fucking striker desperately – Bendtner is ineffectual 13 goals in 30+ games for Birmingham in the Championship – hardly fucking impressive.

  3. gnarleygeorge9

    Denilson may well have sat next to Pat Rice for all the good he did. The crosses were once again shit, until Eboue ghosted in @ the end. And I would say that Cesc will be off, off to sit on Barca’s bench.

  4. JAY20H

    Thank you Arsene for building this team of weak, midjet crocks!!!!

    But i reserve my biggest thank you of all for providing me with the privilage of paying to watch Shocking keepers.

    Im more worried about Fabianski

    ——————————–

    Fabianski 2 – Arsenal 1.

  6. Micky Did It 89

    The worst Cesc was saying was not about the schoolboy defending but when he said that we are not man enough to fight back after conceding.

  7. goonermichael

    that was bollocks but we’ll fucking slaughter them second leg. If Wenger doesn’t realise we need a new keeper now he needs to retire

  8. nishanth

    And why the fuck didn’t diaby shoot at the end?Even hleb might have hit it.Only an arsenal player is capable of something like that

  9. RayGooner

    Arsenal played poorly tonight, but frankly Porto didn’t impress me, we gave them 2 goals…

    At the Emirates we will crush them, i’m sure of that!

    I think we will score 4 and maybe we will score one for Porto as well…

  10. zeus

    Buy some1 in the summer?

    Its a WC year guys. He will be co commentator at the tournie for Al-jasir(sp?) or some french channel.

  11. Maciek

    Well Dutchman, if Arsene will see empty stadium he will realise something is wrong and that it’s time to act.
    Just don’t tell me that we are so skint that we have to see Almunia or Fabiański in goal, Denislon as our cdm and Bendtner up front.
    From Pires, Bergy,, Titi and Patrick to Denislon, Fabianski, Almunia, Bendtner.Great.

  12. Ja_Gunner

    Paulinho…..Denilson was all over the place..he should have just sat deep and allowed Diaby and Fabs to attack….he closed down ppl…then they simply barged through him..so there was absolutely no point in him doing that because he would end up on the turf and then the attacker had a free run after that…

    Its better he sat deep and “read the game” apparently thats his strength anyway….he should stick to his strength…

    He is not fast or strong enough to go around and tackle player high up the field…

    Whether its a anexcuse or not..Diaby was gassed that is why he faltered….he has just come back from injury…

    Cesc has played every second since coming back…I think Wenger should rest him and play Nasri or Ramsey in his position..I am sick of Nasri on the wing….fucking sick of it…..he does nothing out there and he constantly stunts our counter attacks….in the centre I believe he would be much better..there he would need as much pace…he could use his trickery and passing skills…

    As I said before when I saw both Nasri and Rosicky on the wings..I was worried..thats crab football and add Denilson to the equation…..

    We needed at least one of Theo EBoue or Vela on teh wings….Why do we have too playmakers on the wing?

    Wenger you are getting on my nerves…we have 0 counterattcking ability

  13. gambon

    We didnt need to score again.

    You shouldnt have to score 2/3 goals at a place like Porto.

    If we had a proper defence we wouldve won 1-0 tonight.

  14. EgyptianGooner

    Wenger should’ve started nasri on right that’s where he is comfortable, so he can give good crosses, and what i noticed is nasri always hold the ball long then always chooses the easy pass to a team mate which is pressed , the ball is lost

  15. The Ruler

    The referee I think was ridiculous, on Rosisky was a clear penalty, and the 2nd goal shouldnt of stood, firstly the referee was in Campbell’s way so he couldn’t get back anyway. Cesc had a poor game, misplaced so many passes, Denilson while not perfect by any means was a bit improved and he tried a bit harder, was still not great but his effort was better, Diaby was good. Fabanski is either not good enough or not ready yet to play, terrible mistake for the first goal and mistake for the 2nd to cause if there was any doubt whatsoever he could of just cleared it, he really cost us the game today. Campbell was ok but was caught for pace a few times, Theo was ok when he came on, one really good bit of skill and run, Bendtner was ok too,would of liked him to if stayed on, Nasri I thought was also poor, I don’t really think he added anything, I think Rosisky has been a lot better than him recently, I hope he starts ahead of him in the future. All hope isn’t lost yet, we are still very much in the tie, we need to pick ourselves up quickly cause important game on the weekend.

  16. gnarleygeorge9

    This youth scheme, where only one player has been a stand out (fab4), has failed. It has got The Arsenal nothing, & the only player to come out with a tick is apparently set to leave.

  17. Dutchman

    What about that moment:
    Eboue with a good dribble, he gave a very good pass to cesc but a defender tackled the ball, than the ball came back for diaby, Everyone one thought he would shot but…… HE PICKS THE BALL OFF AND GAVE A PASS BACKWARDS???? Do you remember that??

  18. the dude abides

    Is Fabianski’s purpose to make Almunia look half decent.
    we have 3 GK’s, all of them shite – when has a team with poor keepers ever won the CL, or anything for that matter.
    2nd leg will be a score draw.
    we’ll finsh 3rd in the league, but just wait until next season……yeah, right.

  19. Maksud

    @GoonerGaz

    Haha it’s not even like that. But when they say things that the rest of us also see it’s pretty sad. I myself am even laughing at the second goal. It’s a fucking joke!

  20. Micky Did It 89

    I agree we will beat them at home, but after that interview, I have changed my mind. Cesc will go this summer. Then how easy will it be to convince quality to come!

  21. Maciek

    LOL Suga.And I have thought Almunia is the worst keeper in our history. Łukasz I salute You. Szczęsny zwija się teraz ze śmiechu.

  22. Zorr0

    Fabianski is a cunt; end of!

    Fabregas’s comments and face spoke volumes in that interview, he looked like he wanted to cry at having to put up with such pricks playing alongside him!

    AW should just have said it was smart thinking by Porto and focused on the fact that Fab, Sol and the other players who were kipping when the ref gave the free should not be making such schoolboy errors. I seriously hope he tears them all a new one! Why oh why does he feel he has to protect them so much.

    How did we not get that pen? The lino must be a blind cunt, let alone the prick of a ref!

  23. incesc

    Maciek

    “Well Dutchman, if Arsene will see empty stadium he will realise something is wrong and that it’s time to act.”

    Shut the fudge up for fudges sake:)

    no seriously shut up. He is the manager of arsenal football club, he has millions to spend and has an apparent “encyclopaedic” knowledge of football. Why would he need to see empty seats to react? Our manager should be well ahead of the game.

    Im not quite sure why Mannone isnt in goal ahead of Fabianski to be honest.

    —————————–

    I fucking hate saying I told you so. I hate that shyte.

  25. nishanth

    Diaby was okay till until around 70 mins.He played really deep.Did more tracking back than denilson even though denilson was supposed to be the DM.Atleast he was just shit for 20 mins compared to denilson.

  26. big dave

    Am gobsmacked, angry, worst team ever seen.

    Cesc looks like he is gone, no one can blame him

    Wenger and rice we have had enough, that team porto were average and we should had fucked them over.

  27. Simon McMahon

    look the facts are that we should beat this shit at ours , but the reality is that it’s papering over the cracks, there is no defending what this mangement and board are doing to OUR CLUB!!
    When we get into the next round if we get a half decent team we will go out period..
    Its time for the manager and his coaches to go , and a change at board room level is desperatly needed,
    what pains me tonight is not the fact we have lost a game we shouldnt have that hurts a lot by the way..
    its the reality that you can see that cesc will leave in the summer because like us he had it with this overpaid and overated crap that surrounds him…

  28. GoonerT1m

    wheres that MG who was saying yesterday how great Fabianskfuk was gonna be?????…sick of the arsenal 1st team being used a training ground for the fucking circus…fuck off..

  29. gnarleygeorge9

    Revenue raising for 5 years, shrouded by a youth system & a guarantee from Le Boss that he wants to win trophys. Thats all its been. Well thats great coz its a really good stadium, but somehow I feel that the fans have been swindled.

    Ok, then sell fab4 for mega bucks, end this overdraft bullshit, & get back to buying quality & winning the Big Games. & start by getting a world class keeper.

  30. chris

    porto were there for the taking and we gifted them 2 of the worst goals i have seen. i cant believe wenger puts up with this sh1t time and time again, maybe hes just the king of the clowns

  31. JAY20H

    Im waiting for the quote in the build up to the second leg.

    “My boys have grown up an ready to prove their worth”

    Fuck off Arsene.

    This team needs freshening up. To much dead wood – Everyone can see it, but you!!!

  32. Dutchman

    I didn’t think that i will be going to say this but i hope that we lose again against porto. Wenger is fucked than, we are out off all competitions and we have no excuses than. Time for changes. Sorry that i have said this.

  33. zee

    you know what – whats the fucking best that can happen? we miraculously win the league or the champs lg. Even then you’d have wenger’s stubbornness and ego coming thru – i told you i believed in this team etc etc and he gets the perfect excuse to not buy anyone, again.

  34. nishanth

    What is the gaurantee that we won’t make the same mistakes at home against porto?Almunia is very much capable of fucking it up.And clichy will also be there.

  35. big dave

    Players like Denilson , Bendi, etc are not arsenal class why cant people see this, we have gone backwards, something has to change NOW.

    This can not carry on, why shld I spend £££££££££££
    to watch that shit

    The board are cunts and blindfolded old gits

  36. Zorr0

    Anyway, we should win at THOF, prob have at least 3 of the 5 players back. Almunia in goal, Gallas and Song for Sol and Denilson and then maybe AA for Nasri.

    I am not hopeful of any silverware, but still there has to be a clearout of some players who are just not up to the mark and some quality bought in this Summer.

  37. Simon McMahon

    from tommorow until the end of may get ready with cesc to spain story’s and blame the dilusional blind wanker who manages our club , he is to blame ,
    Fucking clueless,,
    GUTTED …

  38. Alex

    Come on, we only lost by one goal, we can smash them at them the Emirates with Song, Arshavin, Eduardo back. And dare I say it Almunia.

  39. AfriX

    Wenger fuck off with yo energy draining tippy tappy football. I’m sick & tired of yo stupid press conferences regurgitating the same junk never disciplining players when they need that. U’ve turned our beloved team to a plaything & laughing stock. Wenger just leave & take some of yo clown players with u, they r a disgrace to Arsenal Football Circus!!!

  40. zeus

    We are all worried about losing Cesc, at the rate we are going we will probably lose Arshavin as well. lol

    To think we were invincible a few years back. We are the butt of jokes now. Dare I say it, we are the Tottenham of Europe

  41. gambon

    Alex

    Yeah i think we’ll go through. But thats no comfort, we all know we will go out the second we play a decent team.

    Its embarassing.

  42. Dutchman

    I saw the highlights, and i think that it is a very bad mistake from the referee. The dutch commetator was angry he said that it was not good from the ref. And sure that goal was not a goal. You must look good, the ref gives the ball to a porto player and he hasn’t blown his whistle or the ball is in the net. Very big mistake. I have to say.

  43. chris

    lehmann makes 2 mistakes and is dropped, i know he was a clown at the end of his time here but almunia and fabfuckupski have been disasters their whole time at our club… fucking wenger

  44. incesc

    Alex

    Come on, we only lost by one goal, we can smash them at them the Emirates with Song, Arshavin, Eduardo back. And dare I say it Almunia.

    Its not the point any more. The we mights or the we can or the potential.

    I would like to see it actually happen. It never does

  45. Simon McMahon

    fabainski v stoke
    almunia v man utd
    fabainski tonight ,
    how many fuck up’s does it take to see that our goalkeepers are probably some of the worst in the epl and as a group the worst at the club in my life time and i’m 45 …

  46. the dude abides

    Tonights performances:

    Fabianski – garbage
    Clichy – going backwards as a player
    Campbell – did OK, no pace and no cover from midfield
    Vermaelen – below par
    Sagna – decent, but can’t cross
    Diaby – played well on the night, but still holds onto the ball to long too often
    Fabregas – dispirited at the end, looks like he wants to get on the next plane to Barca in the interview
    Deneilson – invisible
    Nasri – OK
    Bendtner – still not good enough, probably never will be
    Rosicky – best player on the night, definate pen

  47. Ja_Gunner

    Porto played at the weekend didnt they…..

    We got the weekend off but yet…we still did not have the energy that their players had……

    This team is very disappointing….

    Wenger needs to stop this fuckery of playing 2 playmakers on the wing…..

    I want to qulaify that statement however to say that Rosicky was good tonight….

    BUt we only need one player on the wing..if any…

    Wehn we play two playmakers on n the wing especially Nasri….we just play into the opponents hands when they put 10 men behind the ball….We need fast tricky guys out there to stretch the defense…but Wenger is so fucking blind he cant see it….

    Nasri does not work on the wing full fucking stop….and if he plays there it should right wing where he will atleast go to the byline sometimes…

  48. Gooby

    relax guys, it’s not the end of the world, fabianski did fuck all but we are still going to progress and hopefully in the next stage we ll have our players back to their best form and from injury.

    nasri is still recovering, clichy too.

    arshavin gallas song back

    RvP if we are lucky at the end of march

    wenger lost the plot tho…

  49. Dutchman

    Yeah, we will win against porto next week but that’s not the point, the point is that we are not good enough. And that we will have loads of money from the sales of adebayor toure and fabregas. But will we spend it??

  50. Big Raddy

    I better get out before I get slaughtered for being in any way positive.

    We will beat Porto at home. Why? Because we won’t get this ref again – he was a disgrace.

  51. zee

    course it wasnt a mistake by the ref, it was a mistake of our own making, yet again. two blokes had the chance to row z it and after that just hold it and take a yellow. wenger arguing with the ref was just embarrassing, he thinks the fans are fucking stupid. ‘he shoulda given us time to make a wall’ just fuck off arsene, stop taking the piss out of us, we’re not fucking thick.

  52. Maurya

    Does Wenger really needs scouting network for a goalie. Very good goalies are available for decent money in the market. Why the heck he needs to buy some one from Poland as if he is a next big thing. I con’t take his obsession to unearth next big thing for each role on the pitch any more.

  53. SUGA3

    Alex,

    that is not the bloody point – we are not good enough: we have been exposed each and every time we played a quality team, unless you count Spuds as one…

  54. Gooby

    Darren Fletcher said that Manchester United FC team-mate Wayne Rooney “is unplayable at the moment”, after the England striker registered twice in a 3-2 victory against AC Milan.

  55. GoonerGaz

    I need to put this in perspective, Fabianski is probably better than Almunia at shot stopping, commanding the area (normally) and distrubution definitely, but fuck me! The guy must be a retard or just incredibly nervous.

    If Wenger doesn’t buy a keeper this summer, then either one of our GK’s steps up to do a good job or Wenger knows shit.

  56. Zorr0

    Gambon, seriously, do you think that if AW thought that fab was so bad he would make those 2 errors he would have even got on the plane!

    Sometimes you have to look at the players and say it is down to them, not the manager.

    I am not excusing his other faults btw!

  57. gambon

    Zorr0

    So if its all down to the players why the fuck does wenger earn £6m a year?

    To pick up fucking cones? And collect the bibs?

  58. Zorr0

    Gooby, to be honest, other than the pen I thought he gave us a lot of decisions for free kicks. But the pen was just absolutely criminal reffing and the lino should be taken out and shot!

  59. Ja_Gunner

    I would play this team at the weekend…

    ………………..Al/Manone…………………..
    Eboue………Gallas………..Slyvest……..Traore
    ……………….Denilson(no other choice!!)……
    ……..Nasri………………….Diaby…………
    ..Walcott…………..Bendy……………Rosicky….

    Fabregas needs a rest
    Clichy needs to be dropped
    Vermaelen rest
    Denilson(no other fucking choice) unless we play Eastmond

  60. gambon

    Zorr0

    Fabianski has fucked up every time hes played, So what is he still doing at the club?

    That is 100% Wengers responsibility.

  61. gnarleygeorge9

    Fellas I would never put Big Raddy in the AKB category. But I would as back up to the Great Charlie George 😎

  62. big dave

    We hve gone backwards, wenger has no balls in dropping players, play Ramsey not denilson, no striker bought and yet he thinks that bendi is world class, cunt.
    His employees should take him to task over the team he plays and his after match comments are a joke, face it you fucked up

  63. gambon

    Keyser

    I see myself as a fan of the club, not the french pied piper leading everyone on a fucking merry dance thats leading the club to its death as a trophy winning outfit.

  64. Zorr0

    Gambon, engage your brain and see past your anger. Tonight’s loss was down to 2 breathtakingly poor pieces of play that you would not expect from a 12 year old, let alone a full international.

    You cannot blame AW for that. Him only having the 2 twats to choose between in goal, maybe, but not for the stupid fucking errors; only fab can be accountable.

  65. Keyser

    Campbell should have sent the ref flying, I mean knocked him the fuck out, and then blamed him for the goal, he’d probably have called play back then.

    It’s not the done thing on here, according to some gimps, but if he had to position himself in the most advantageous position for Porto, he couldn’t hav done better.

  66. SUGA3

    and it’s not like he was shocking ‘tonight’…

    besides, he walked out on the pitch with the dead man walking expression on his boat…

    SUGA3 Says:
    February 17, 2010 at 19:44

    Fabianski doesn’t have the most confident and relaxed look on his face…

    thank you 😉

  67. GoonerGaz

    Big Dave… I forgot we even had Ramsey, definitely needs to start ahead of Denilson next game, I’d even say Eastmond is better then Denilson. The guy is a limp dick.

  68. Johan

    ‘Tonight the laughs on Porto’, well fair enough. Porto must have had a fantastic laugh at our GK… This is by -far- the most shocking performance a goalkeeper has ever done in the CL.

  69. Ja_Gunner

    Nasri must not play on the wing again…..

    Wenger is overusing Fabregas in my opinion….he can rest him from time to time by playing

    Nasri
    Rosicky
    or Ramsey in his place

    Why must he persist with so many playmakers on the wing?

    I believe Nasri and Rosicky would be excellent coming from midfield and shooting..they both have excellent shots but Wenger has coached it out of them….

    Nasri is like Zidane in that he does not have pace……Wenger Zidane did not play on the fucking wing….put Nasri into the fucking centre…he will do much better there….

  70. gambon

    Zorr0

    So how comes a number of people on here could see this coming for the last few days?

    Every single time he plays he fucks up, every time.

  71. Keyser

    gambon – Do something fanatical then, like blame the fucking ref for once. Heh.

    I dunno whether it’s reports on BBC News talking about Middle Eastern fanatics thats misleading me here, but what is a fanatic nowadays ?!

  72. kirby

    suga,

    It was poor by fabianski, wenger can’t take him off, for who anyway?

    we shouldn’t of lost porto are shit yes we have shit goalkeepers, wenger obviously pisses me off but not tonight.

    also normally the opposition ask for the ball back when they have a free kick what the fuck was the ref asking for it and why doesn’t fabianski throw it away.

    porto are shit I think we will smash them at home

  73. Big Raddy

    Thanks GG 🙂

    I find it laughable that so called Gooners slag me off for having a different viewpoint to them.

    I have never said we will win the CL, we are nowhere near the standard of 4 other teams, but with a bit of luck and a blind ref (like the one who knocked the Chavs out last season) and we could do well.

    The EPL? Who knows….. much depends upon the consistency of MU & the Chavs.

  74. Sahara

    Sad to see what we’ve become.
    A reflection of what the manager has turned into.
    Every team in every walk of life reflects its leadership and management.
    Change can only be forced down from the top.
    Will it happen? And when?
    Something has to give soon.
    Hope we dont implode while we wait.
    So sad.

    I have never said we will win the CL, we are nowhere near the standard of 4 other teams, but with a bit of luck and a blind ref (like the one who knocked the Chavs out last season) and we could do well.

    The EPL? Who knows….. much depends upon the consistency of MU & the Chavs.

    6 years ago we were favourites for epl and could win the euro cup. Now we are a million miles off both

    Well he is stuck with the cunt now until the Summer, unless you fancy Mannone? So when clownmunia is injured he has to play; the point being that you would not expect to see those mistakes in the conference, let alone the ECL!

    “So how comes a number of people on here could see this coming for the last few days?”

    Because you use the law of BBK, moan often enough and you can pat yourself on the back once in a while.

    We were shit today, what’s worse is Porto were fucking shit, the ref was shit and we should’ve easily walked out with at least a draw, but there’s still the second leg left.

    I would play this team at the weekend…

    ………………..Al/Manone…………………..
    Eboue………Gallas………..Slyvest……..Traore
    ……………….Denilson(no other choice!!)……
    ……..Nasri………………….Diaby…………
    ..Walcott…………..Bendy……………Rosicky….
    ——————————————————–
    Couldn’t have picked a worse side if I tried really really hard.
    Bendy – Crap
    Walcott – lol
    Denilson – joker
    Sylvrstre- hahahahahahahahahaha
    ANy keeper – hssss teeth

    The end of this pathetic season can’t come soon enough.

    Suga3 – How long would that management team last ? We’d play players for a game decide they were shit and move them on.

  81. Ja_Gunner

    Wenger must see that something is not working now…we were highest scoring team in league and overall..but now Chelsea Manure and compnay have caught up…

    Deosnt he see that something is not right…we have not been free scoring in a long time…early in the season with little pressure plus a fully fit team we were scoring for fun…

    BUt now when the injuries mount and the big games come around we cant score to save our lives…

    Whenever Fergie plays 4-3-3….he always plays super ffast players on the wing..

    Valencia, Nani, rooney(when Ronaldo was around)
    Ronadlo etc…

    BUt he persists with playing Nasri there…he and Denilson are very slow..

  82. gnarleygeorge9

    Lets face it, if you analyse this closely, 2 stuff ups by the keeper & a virtually not existant role by Denilson cost us the advantage. Even the commentators on ESPN said that The Arsenal weren’t even playing through Denilson in the 1st half, they were through Nasri & Mozart, & we looked a chance to score. Denilson needs to get on his bike, as do about half a dozen others, & be replaced by world class types.

    As usual youre way off. I said Fabianski was awful, didnt mention anyone else.

    Every goal we conceed boils down to our GK, LB or Denilson. Yet Wenger refuses to do anything about it.

  84. GoonerGaz

    I’m sick of playing 4-5-1, 4-3-3 my arse

    Too many similar players imo, I think you either play Rosicky or Nasri out wide, not both. Rosicky had an ok game tonight!

    If your going to play Rosicky on one of the flanks, then bring Nasri into the centre instead of denilson, its not brain surgery.

    Give Eboue some games on the right and put walcott on left more often as sub, he’s fuckin useless on the right because he is so one footed, at least on the left he can cut inside at pace and do something.

    Go to your airport, get on a big flying Kangaroo & head south-east for 24 hours, till you touch down @ the land hidden in the sun for a million years, oh & the little dot just south of it 🙂

    @ JA

    Dont mention Zidane in the same sentence as Nasri, thats an insult to the great man. Zidane had a supreme first touch and could shoot from distance and could pass a ball.

    Nasri does his best not to shoot, like against Chelsea and my biggest concern about us buying him in the first place was can he pass the ball, and the answe is not really.

    He is more of a dribbler, but not one with the class of say Ben Arfa. Nasri is and has been a so-so player, with potential I must admit.

  87. SUGA3

    trying to defend the indefensible, that’s what…

    – crap motivation (no man management skills)
    – crap team selection
    – crap tactics
    – crap substitutions

    I have once said that being paid fucking millions to fail is reserved for bankers, hedge funds managers, politicians and Arsene Wenger 😯

  88. big dave

    If only the ex would had been next to me for their 2nd goal instead of the bloody wall, see that is what wenger does to you

  89. kirby

    look suga, the guy is a shit goalie, if mannone does the same he is shit. we have shit goalkeepers.

    it was fabianski’s fault not wengers

  90. Big Raddy

    Incesc. “Million miles”?

    Thank goodness I don’t think like you.

    We have some tinkering to do with the team. We need a GK and a defensive coach. Maybe a CB as back up.

    We weren’t overrun in MF today. Denilson for all his faults kept at it & in Diaby we have a brilliant player emerging.

    As to the Cesc leaving talk. He is under contract, he will leave if AW wants him to, and if he does, it will be for a fat fee. Just like any other player.

    No one player is bigger than Arsenal

  91. Keyser

    Suga3 – You really want to follow it through ? Mate any mistake a player makes he’s targeted until he’s vilified for every single one.

    If we’d never have bought Fabianski or Denilson, we’d pick on someone else.
