Robin’s crocked already, time to seriously consider a replacement, now, before it’s too late.

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Now you may all laugh at that headline, Robin went over on his ankle so he’s a crock, the point is that Robin is always going over on something, Robin makes Darren Anderton look like a health fitness fanatic gay robot.

I love Robin and have always believed he could become the world’s best player, I know, I say the same about Theo, and I still believe it, but they are both crocks and should we keep faith with them both, we should however view them as our luxury players, injured more than they are fit, and that’s a fact.

So what do we do then? We just bought Chamakh, we’ve yet to see if he is good enough but I think he will be, then we have to look at the others, Arshavin is not really a striker, more a hole player, Eduardo I think has had it, Vela isn’t good enough and Bendtner has got right up my nose with his ‘my dream is’ comments, and I don’t think he’ll ever be world class, well about as world class as Santa Cruz or John Carew, and I wouldn’t want either of them.

So I think we need to sell Vela, Bendtner and Eduardo and use the money to buy Dzeko and Hazard.

We are today being linked with Taylor of Newcastle, I’d have him, the sort of dirty bastard we need, but what about Nedum Onouha of Man City? He’s big, skilful and English, despite his name!

Man City would sell him, he’s young and would fulfil the Wenger criteria, he also has EPL experience, so maybe a punt on him would be a good move.

Back to Robin, if this world cup doesn’t get him, something else will, I bet I could get 5000-1 at Paddy Power on him completing a season uninjured, we know it will happen, so it’s time we planned ahead, three strikers in our squad are not good enough to take over, we can get good money for them now and use it wisely.

Don’t make the same mistakes as you did last season Arsene!

Since Song cemented his place he now seems to be picking up injuries, there’s a surprise, still it proves we need a spare, I quite like Toulalon, anybody?

Cesc is beginning to pick up injuries on a regular basis so maybe Gourcuff would be a smart move as well.

I’m getting my wish list in early as Tuesday is just around the corner, so maybe by then we will compile the definitive list, that you, the readers would prefer.

Have a great day Grovers, no football today, but there is the cricket, we can make Bangladesh follow on and Lewis or Jensen could win the Grand Prix. So unless you are German, Australian or indeed Bangladeshi, you’ll be routing for them.

Bless you all and peace on earth, wherever you come from!

    get out of the dark ages AA23 !

    white people are not racist any longer .
    well maybe in fucked up countries like canada who no one wants to live in , it still is !

    but places like australia – uk – europe – usa , we have gotten over that red neck mentality ….

    long ago …

    shame you like to use it as a draw card to try and turn people on me !

    bring it .. i love a rational race debate ..

    Ethan what a way to generalize. All black people dont behave the same. Nor do all whites or all Thais. Or all whites in Thailand. If that were the case i’d be accusing u of tying a rope to ur dick while hanging in a closet πŸ˜†
    that was actually funny ! but im not an aussie !

    i was born in London ~ !!!!!

    as was all my white brothers before me πŸ™‚

    people who cry racism are imo people with low self esteem. Nothing pisses me off more than hearing blacks talk about reparations. For fucking what. Something that happened half a millenia ago. If any body deserves reparation its the jewish from those german cunts

    neither are all the best aussies bartenders !

    you dont need to convert me ! i married a black woman !

    im not generalizing im am saying when there is a issue on racism , its generally like martin luthor king the way the whites are portrayed!! ..

    all im saying is most white people generally just walk away .. no biggie !

    not play on oppression to rally support ..

    there are many times whites get just as fucked over .. they just dont take it personally or blame it on being white πŸ™‚

  5. sixx pac

    I get wat ur saying. Most blacks take people like Al Sharpton as hypocritical jackasses. He only speaks out when whites do something against the blacks but never the other way around. Luckilly we blacks can see behind his beer gut and his greasy perm ( that should have been left in the 60’s)

    i dont have any hang ups with my skin , and expect others to be the same ..

    if your worried about the racism topic , then i can only say you must be one !

    totally agreed !

    some of the prettiest women ive seen in the world
    are NOT WHITE !
    and i can tell you i wasnt thinking about anything else but ………LOVE πŸ™‚ not racial hate !

    in fact i would go as far as saying the thai’s are racist ..

    they dont think i can speak thai ..

    most call Westerners a WHITE ATM πŸ™‚ …

    other day a thai man allowed another thai man to park in a car spot in town , and when i pull up in the next bay .. i get told i cant park there !

    then park down the block , as i walked past a thai man parked in the spot i was told to leave !pulls up and parks NO PROBLEMS ! …

    went to a restaurant when its like a revolving 360 restaurant .. wife gets charged 250 baht ..

    because im white 750 baht for me or 3 times the price …

    dont fucking tell me about racism AA23 im a victim of it every day …

    oh get this , my septic tank πŸ™‚ blocked cost me 800 baht , next door is a thai man same company charged him 300 baht ! and his septic tank is a 4 station and mine is only 2 ..

    i am a victim myself but i accept it .. as i understand western culture has no influence here ..

    and i actually quite like that !

  8. sixx pac

    Oh and Ethan, England is shite. U have no shot whatsoever at winning in SA. No chance in hell πŸ˜‰

  9. ethangunner

    and my point is i put up with racism every day as a minority white guy in a asian world ,but i also like what thailand brings to the table as far as cost of living , the weather , the 7 % vat only …

    the women πŸ™‚ and more ..

    so i put up with it.. and accept it exists !

  10. AA23

    Ethan you have made racist remarks about sixx pac many times on here.
    same as you made sexist and homophobic remarks earlier.
    Also Australians arent a race they are a nationality. so having a pop at them isn’t racism, its xenophobia.
    I’ll steer clear of Earls court for a while, and it’ll all blow over.
    That’s a generalisation.

  11. sixx pac

    The Dutch all day baby. Portugal second. Since Christy left utd i have become a big fan and seeing that i now hate everything Barca, there is no way i’m rooting for either of Argentina or Spain. Cunts the lot of them

  12. ethangunner

    south africas climate is very similar to perth’s ..

    the weather isnt an issue !

    its not hot there !

    try living here πŸ˜‰ !

    the issue is if theo fires !
    and rooney can sustain his goal scoring form !
    lamps – cole – gerrard will see us to the final 8 then anything can happen !

  13. ethangunner

    sorry AA ,

    saying your a calypso king is not racism !

    either that or viv richards would of already sued australia 50 times already !

    and australia is a RACE ! …
    to take the piss out of a countries people is racism you twat !

    because it was you who made the generalization !

  14. sixx pac

    AA23 Ethan says a lot of things mate. I doubt he remembers half of it when he goes to bed at nights. Its a blog. We all have pops at each other from time to time. If i knew any Canadian stereotypes i’d be having a pop at u as well. All i know is Oooot and aboooot.

  15. ethangunner

    yes got no worries about being a self confessed homophobe !

    its not natural !

    we are all creatures who need to reproduce to ensure our race continues , it genetic code !.. you maybe tolerate to a man coming on to you AA23 !

    but for me the only way is MAN and WOMAN ! its the way it should be .. and it my personal preference ..

    i got no problems in 2 queers banging each other up the date , just dont do it on my watch πŸ™‚

    however 2 women πŸ™‚
    im less homophobic about that arrangement πŸ™‚

  16. ethangunner

    6 pac –

    it fucking day time !!!!

    its almost 12 noon ! ive not got Alzheimer’s , well not yet πŸ™‚

    i know every insult ive hearld ! …

    to be frank youve both deserved it ..

    however .. 6 PAC ! your name has been crossed off the list in the LOST CAVE !

    you are free to leave the island !

    AA23 .. you on the other hand πŸ™‚

  17. ethangunner

    6-pac i havent got time to go into evolution with you .
    but to be quick .. the retiles ruled the world ! – dinosaurs ..

    mammals lived underground predominantly ..

    so when the meteor hit .. and engulfed the world in dust for 1000’s of years .. the reptiles died ..
    and us mammals became the dominate species on the planet .

    how was live created ?

    well you only need water co2 and sunlight to create photosynthesis and you can create any single cell life with amino acids .

    god didnt plant any seed my friend its called evolution .. and its proven ! πŸ™‚

  18. ethangunner

    yes australians are a race , go to any cricket match !

    poms on the left , Aussies on the right ..
    both white .. both hate each other !

    why ?
    because of national pride ..
    because we regard ourselves as a different RACE ! to the English ! our own identity !

    racism is about picking on people with differing skin color or religious beliefs / cultures !

    so when you knock the piss out of the aussies you condemning the whole nation – a race of people !

    you racistly stereotype them as AUSSIES !
    and they are only good enough to work bar !

    how the fuck can you craft it so it DOESNT sound like an attack on a differing society ?

    Not wishing to get involved in anyones ding, dong, but let me clear up racism.

    There are 4 races on earth, Negroid, Australoid, Caucasoid and Mongoloid.

    Negroid’s are black people, Australoid’s are Aborigines, Caucasoid’s are white people and that includes, Jews, Christians and Muslims and Mongoloid’s are Eskimos and any race with a double fold of skin on the eye, like Chinese and Japanese, this fold was to protect the eye’s from the snow glare in evolutionary times.

    So to sum up, you can only be racist if you dig out another race, anything else is bigoted or indeed xenophobic.

    I’m off to golf now, have a lovely day and enjoy a Pedro post!

  21. sixx pac

    Ethan I dont know how the world came to be. I have read a lot of theories. I just dont think that we are here by chance

  22. sixx pac

    I hate when people say, ‘ I dont mean to get involved’ and thats exactly what they do. Its like saying ‘ I dont mean to fuck ur wife but she’s sitting on my dick’ πŸ˜‰

  23. ethangunner

    no because based on that , there is no problem for a US marine to call a Muslim a rag head , and not be deemed racist ..

    racism is a little more complicated than that ..
    australia – uk and usa are a multi cultural society .

    we are now under the banner of AUSSIES .. as the cultures are so diverse .. likewise UK – USA ..

    im sure if some yank was taking the piss out of brits in a pub Geoff you would would not take it as an attack of your culture ..


  24. ethangunner

    According to the United Nations conventions, there is no distinction between the term racial discrimination and ethnic discrimination.

    ( KEY WORD ETHNIC !!! )


    Although the term racism usually denotes race-based prejudice, violence, dislike, discrimination, or oppression, the term can also have varying and contested definitions. Racialism is a related term, sometimes intended to avoid these negative meanings. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, racism is a belief or ideology that all members of each racial group possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially to distinguish it as being either superior or inferior to another racial group or racial groups. [2]

    The Macquarie Dictionary defines racism as: “the belief that human races have distinctive characteristics which determine their respective cultures, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule or dominate others.”

    respective cultures !

    eg. being as Aussie !

  25. ethangunner

    look at the thai’s and the burmese !

    both identical to look at as far as RACE is concerned !
    but nothing could be closer in their cultures they have been killing and stealing gold and boarders for 2000 years !

    both show racial hate towards each other ! but its not racism ?


    sorry ..

    ‘The Macquarie Dictionary defines racism as: β€œthe belief that human races have distinctive characteristics which determine their respective cultures, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule or dominate others.”

    geoff has told you the oxford dictionary meaning .

    ill tell you the UN real meaning ..which runs more in line with the The Macquarie Dictionary

  26. ethangunner

    so when adolf hilter attack the brits in 1939 it wasnt racism ?

    damn straight it was ..

    ‘involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule or dominate others.”

    and that was whites Vs whites ?@!
    defined by country boarders ..

  27. ethangunner

    WWII was a war purely based off Racism !
    and it continues today .. iran V iraq . Israel V’s everybody πŸ™‚

  28. ethangunner

    Aussies V’s the Poms in cricket ..

    racism rears its ugly head .. often !
    sit in the crowd for 8 hours and tell me it isnt πŸ™‚

  29. ethangunner

    USA V’s RUSSIA – cold WAR …..racism …

    β€˜involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule or dominate others.”

    all the major conflicts of the world were started on the building blocks of racism !

    and that is the United nations stance on it …

    you can include CULTURE – DIFFERENCE as racist !
    if you didnt know it before

    YOU DO NOW πŸ™‚

  30. ethangunner

    so in short AA23 ,

    your ignorance yet again has made you look like a plonker ..

    and you thinking i was the ignorant one πŸ™‚

    anyhow get out and experience life in your igloo ..
    or what ever the fuck YOU live in ..

  31. ethangunner

    like me old mate 6 -pac said , be proud of yourself and racism no longer exists !

    if he isnt upset by his brown bum , then why the fuck should it insult you ?!

    racism is an attack on a culture , not an individual ..
    thats the new world !

    call me a white faced honky !

    do i give a fuck ???

  32. ethangunner

    one more πŸ™‚

    The Japanese invasion of the pacific 1942..

    again β€˜involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule or dominate others.”

    if he isnt upset by his brown bum , then why the fuck should it insult you ?!
    in fact knowing you AA23 you would find it inviting πŸ™‚
    in a non – ‘homophobe’ sort of way !

  41. charliegeorge


    I get your drift, bud. I thought Gnarley was the only Aussie on here. Listen up, can you put a number on how long AW might have lasted at one of our local AFL clubs? The only comparison I can make is Sheeds, and he lasted longer than I think he should have. Take a wild stab.

  42. ethangunner

    i lived in australia 25 ish years , but born in the UK – London . lived in kent for 5 years … then immigrated . ..

    but to put a number on wengers term in a AFL league is hardly the same kettle of fish , wenger can produce talent from Europe on the cheap ..

    and find inventive ways to cut costs ..

    the EPL is a corporation .. , the AFL is still largely about SPORT .. due to its lack of global appeal .

    im sure if you could recruit a AFL player from asia or europe and pay him macdonalds money to play for the club ..

    they would πŸ™‚

    and wenger could last in that environment ..

    he can turn a buck , and therefore you have to base the blame on the money men of the club .. the board .

  43. ethangunner

    i think wenger is forced to go cheap , by self induced boundary’s he put on himself ,well even prior to the emirates being built .. but definitely continued in force ever since the anelka sale !

    he made a rod for his back way back then when he hit the jack pot making close to 20 mil in a season from anelka .

    hillwood came out and said what a marvelous manager arsene is , he keeps us competitive and spends nothing doing so !

    im sure since that time thats precisely what hillwood expects from wenger ..

    my only beef with wenger is not identifying quality within his own squad . πŸ™‚

    i wont say who πŸ™‚

  44. ethangunner

    if wenger played a differing style to every other AFL club and turned the game on its head in some why that was an inspiration i think he would do well in the AFL .

    he is a GREAT COACH after all .. can make any average player far better ..

    wenger would be far better suited to the AFL !

    its all about training up your players ..
    lets face in AFL players dont move about THAT much ..

  45. charliegeorge


    Suppose you’re right there, he’d be in his element for sure, not having to contend with the Bank of Chelsea, etc. But in terms of success, or the lack of it, I don’t think if he’d won nothing for five years, and made a lot of empty promises, that a president in Kennett’s position would have tolerated that, much less the fans. It’s all about the rhetoric Ethan, just be honest and let the results do the talking. Fans can tolerate that, they just can’t tolerate the bullshit.

  46. ethangunner

    just gourcuff rumors this morning NO hangeland signing
    what a massive plonker some twat with no brain has ..


  47. ethangunner

    yes well they are the key problems with wenger is his OLD STYLE approach ..

    listen i did it myself . at work .. taking the fall for the company . id do the occasional KEY hand over , and here all the crap and take the fall for shoddy tradesman-ship all the way until i let them sign over the keys ..

    wenger is no different .. he is the mouth piece for the board ..

    but im sure wenger , who wanted ribery and a few others from time to time , never got his man !

    if he was in charge of the purse strings ribery would have gone to us 100% in lieu of bayern !

    like i said wenger isnt an game day strategist !
    Religious sub’s at 70 minutes can just be about as predictable as a womans period πŸ™‚

    the classic was the C.C defeat with spurs 2 seasons ago !

    4 goals down 20 minutes left ‘ the famous 70 minute mark ‘so lets bring on the strikers weve rested the whole game ..

    talk about shut the gate after the horse has BOLTED ! its not only bolted ,the fucker is in another county πŸ™‚

    his underestmation of his squad depth prior to the barca encounter , knowing the EPL was more than attainable with an easy-ish 8 game run …

    and his failure to focus on 1 ..

  48. charliegeorge


    Is it not harder winning a Grand Final, given you just can’t go out and buy whoever? Whereas the EPL is easier, given its domination by the Top Four? And therefore, shouldn’t AW have done better in such a reductive scenario?

    not when every other club(villa-spuds-shitty) lifts in player stature in such a short period of time , and OUR club refuses to change its policys on transfers …

    the rift has been getting bigger and bigger each season …..

    maybe we should be thankful for wenger ball which is the only thing keeping us competitive .

    but morale is fucking low !

    what can you do ?

    and now cesc wants out , more will follow !

    yes theres plenty to be pissed off at wenger for ..
    not identifying that jack has a lot to give , and that you dont need to send him out on loan because as far as i could see he was better than any marmite all season long !

    and he had to do it at bolton to find out FFS !

    some say cole is signing tomorrow,
    id be surprised , but he is on a free ..
    surely some club must have secured him , if the chev’s are sending him packing ..

    and lets face it he’s been crocked all season and is free ..

    sounds like a wenger target if EVER ive heard 1 !

    and he has in the past liked the cut of coles jib ..

    in a non-homophobic sort of way πŸ™‚

  52. ethangunner

    if cole is indeed on a free ,
    the chev’s didnt re-sign him .. i take it ?

    then he would be going SOMEWHERE ..

    and a club like AFC is just cunning enough to say fuck all about it .. up until the death knock ..
    very possible , but no where near an assured signing.

  53. ethangunner

    when you think about it ..

    if cole left he would probably prefer arsenal as the only other top 4 london club …

    sorry spuds .. πŸ™‚

  54. ethangunner

    maybe theres more to this than 1st thought ..

    does anyone know the accurate position with cole and the chev’s ?
