So, we-are-top-of-the-league, let’s hope we stay there!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

You never know, we could after today if the results go our way, we would need the mancs to crash though, and you know what? That’s possible.

I’m writing this instead of Pedro because once again his social life get’s in the way of his one post a week, so screw the player ratings as I find that boring and you know what I’m like when doing them.

The game started well with Denilson scoring and us going one up, I couldn’t believe he didn’t start without Diaby in midfield and still can’t, no Diaby, no Nasri and no Rosicky, he did have Nasri up top but I see him as more of a midfielder.

Anyway we were cruising but lacked that final penetration that those players seem to add and before we knew where we were we had Vermaelen sent off, and for what? It wasn’t a foul, it wasn’t a goalscoring opportunity so therefore it was neither a penalty nor a sending off, a disgraceful decision from a refereee that was 30 yards away and a lino that was unsighted, I hope we appeal.

Having said that though, in a week when the FA do nothing to scouse thug Gerrard for another assault, we get a straight red and I bet they would uphold it, or even increase it.

I thought Almunia had a blinder, very solid and a brilliant penalty save that the ESPN team kept telling us was wrong because Almunia moved, what? Every keeper moves, bone heads!

I thought Eboue had another great game and is beginning to look like a better bet than Theo, what the!!! And I will give Song a special mention because when he moved to centre back I thought he look better than Gallas, no pace but a great tackler, so maybe that’s his true position. I know he prefers it.

I thought Nikki B had a quiet game and Arshavin seemed frustrated, but it was great to have Cesc back and he was combining well with Nasri.

Campbell was again a man mountain, boy am I glad we got him back, and I thought Clichy was getting back to his best.

I thought the game changed when Diaby came on, he is so talented and now he has added consistency to his armoury, so well done son, I’m putting a word in to get you off the Marmite list!.

So on what could have been a very difficult day, the boys became men, reversing what we did last week against 10 man Hull and showing the world how it’s done. Top, top result.

Fantastic to hear that Robin is back in training this week, I just hope he can get back in time to face Barca, that would be something, having him back for the spuds and northern chavs would be a major boost as well.

I also hear that Aaron Ramsey is back at the Grove and walking without his crutches, top man, maybe he’ll make the bench for the final against Bordeaux in Madrid in May! I kid you, but I always believed he would be back fighting for his place in pre season, and he seems to be on track.

So all in all, a great day for the team, the Marmites in particular, we are now showing the signs that a great team shows when they win the league against all the odds, the crowd got behind the boys yesterday and did us proud, next up Birmingham away, and we owe them one!

Come on Liverpool, come on Blackburn, who knows eh! Have a great Domingo Grovers, this could be the day the worm finally turned.

    I don’t really care tbh. I read the shit he spews on this site, β€œabusing” others on here. Over and over and over and over and over.
    ———————–
    fair call ..

    Someone made the point that the managers following Mourinho just built on what he had done, same with Guardiola. He built on what Rijkaard had done.

    And with that team it would take a wanker not to produce trophies to be honest.

  4. ethangunner

    true Zeus but alot of those players are over paid and under preform …

    so many managers have past the gates its allowed ballack – deco and others to either go pasted their used by dates un noticed or get away with indifferent form .

    if i was romanov id be buying benzema’s and villas not old 30 year old Used to be’s ..

  5. ethangunner

    but thats no it my fucking problem πŸ™‚ , and the long as its their problem..

    its cool πŸ™‚

    but your right you could be gunnersaurus and manage the chev’s to a top 4 birth ..

    4 sure ..

  6. zeus

    I actually rate Ancelotti highly and if Abromovich spent a next 1/4 of a billion (highly unlikely I know) I think Carlo could make a team that played attractive football and effective one as well.

  7. sixx pac

    ethan shut the fuck up. I am old enough to have a passport. Unfortunately i also need an english visa to get into ur country.

  8. gnarleygeorge9

    WTF goes on with United getting a penalty when the holding takes place outside the box. Its decisions like that, @ crucial times of the season that ultimately get manure over the line IMO. That was no penalty.

  9. ethangunner

    Zeus , you know where Arsenal are deemed to have too much youth i think the chev’s have too many seniors ..

    but a think a coach is rather like marriage .
    it either works with the manager and team or it doesn’t .
    its like Rikkard in spain he might come to the EPL and kick ass . i think it depends on each individual team ..
    and even country ..

    i suggest any manager who kicks ass at a certain club should stay there .. scolari, ramos .. all good names at other clubs who failed here ..

    it tarnishes them , and their name ..

    thats why id prefer wenger to stay and the board to move on .. you need to change the policies not the manager .

    and wenger has no power to sway where the money goes or what next joint venture the board will undertake ..

    its folly to suggest otherwise .

  10. ethangunner

    if fergie went Over seas and say was in charge of juve or alike would he be as successful ?

    stay at the club where you can achieve success .
    it affects so many managers , you see it regularly with the bottom half of the EPL and the chev’s changing managers every 5 seconds ..

    look at ramos the prick is still unemployed !!! since 2008 , prior he lead a successful sevilla side ..

    it ruined his career , well it is currently ..

    Afternoon grovers,
    Hmmm, a lot of confrontational posts? Is it just me, or do I notice this disturbing trend where the comments posted have some elements of hostility?

    Okay, at my end, it’s just great to know that one of our title contenders actually did DROP points. And that’s something I shall thoroughly enjoy now. And all of ‘ye grovers should do the same!

  12. Jon

    You mean ethan usually doesn’t make much sense? Haha, I’m still relatively new here so I’d have to further analyze that statement sixx pac. Haha!

    gnarleygeorge9, I’m with you on decisions clearly and unfairly swaying towards Man Utd. That irritates the hell out of me, but what really annoys me to no end is simply because we can’t do much about it. If they win, I would know that it’s not because they’re team is of quality, rather it’s by means of horrendous and questionable refereeing of games.

    6 pac

    I cannot believe that a country that stands for liberty, has never had a public health system.

  14. sixx pac

    Gnarley i think u should know that America claims to stand for a lot of things but she rarely stands for them.

  15. bnsb

    Good Morning all!

    Now Manu Vs Chelsea game has become very interesting. If Chelsea wins it would be to our advantage. Manu wins, it is home run for them.

    But we have seen funnier things happen.

    ethan talking sense. Stranger things have happened
    ———————————–
    no ive just got more spare time on my hands to talk football now we have finally something to
    AIM FOR , other than the Emirates cup next season πŸ™‚

    im sure you will continue to add hot air to the team ,win – lose or relegated πŸ™‚

    that situation remains static πŸ™‚

    i prefer to KEEP IT REAL as you Americans say πŸ™‚

  17. ethangunner

    i said man U will creep up and win it ..
    (not finish outside the top 4 πŸ™‚ )

    they do it every year , well every year they are behind after christmas.. they did it to us the hleb year , and last year to the chav’s and pool ..

    they are probably odds on .. favorites with the bookies too ..

  18. gnarleygeorge9

    favourites with the FA as well, after that non penalty they got, you have to think they get preferential treatment @ critical times.

  19. ethangunner

    sorry 6 πŸ™‚

    just trying to gross you out πŸ™‚

    of course i said that pre-season , but man U winning the EPL as far as odds were concerned was a bit of a no brainer based on history .

    Im glad we still have something to aim for !
    normally by this time of the season we are already talking (HOPING) for new players ..
    and waiting for next years pre – season to start πŸ™‚

    After 45 days of treatment, Tiger Woods has said in an interview he is looking forward to getting back to his old roots πŸ˜†

    Chozzer your videos rock mate, keep em coming.

    Didnt check the comments, but a solid post Geoffry, am glad you spared us the numbers, it always leads to the

    “…but I think that should be a 7…” debate, which is totally pointless and really just boring.

  22. LAzer

    And am pretty thrilled about the draw. To be honest I have been wanting to see this team go up against those bastards for a while now and always preferred it over two legs. Would much rather play them over 180 mins then a winner takes all final that can get shitted on in a moment of madness.

  23. Mr B

    What the Fuck??? are the westindian gang takeingover Le-Grove.

    Go fuck yourselfs back to where u came from Wankers.
    We dont need any shows of your solidarity, fucking Wankers.

  24. gnarleygeorge9

    Are there West Indians on here? Obviously we just had a cunt on here a couple of comments back, but west indians πŸ˜‰

    RVP says

    “for a few weeks now I have trained with the ball. It looks good.”

    Whaaat?

    is wenger having us on? will he unleash him v birmingham?

  26. incesc

    bnsb

    Only thing you can say with certainty is Europa for Pool!

    mate, they might struggle to get into the europa.

  27. LAzer

    So who gets the call at the back vs. Brum?? Song? Then you know we’re getting Denilson and Diaby in mid. I’d give Walcott a start, he is itching to make an impression and Arshavin is looked disinterested and like he needs a rest maybe. Keeps him fresh for Barca too.

  28. Sabeel Indian Gunner

    okay one thing i wanna know..

    2 days over…whats the status on Verminator ban..

    few questions

    1) is it a 1 game or 3 game ban?
    2) are we going to appeal for it

    hope todays post clears that up a little..

  29. LAzer

    Incesc if that’s a wind up there will be hell to pay. Where’d you see that quote?

    I think Wenger wants to make sure his team aren’t looking for excuses or wanting a saviour, they need to stand on their own with whoever is available.

  30. Geoff

    Morning all, the ban should be 1 game Sabeel, today I have an appointment and so I will post early. Get ready.

  31. bnsb

    Sabeel

    Appeal is against injustice. First time I heard an “appeal for it”

    Is one game, you see – everyones ones stopped moaning πŸ™‚
