One hand on the trophy but will the other Arsenal player make it tonight? And what happened to the Israeli wonderboy?

by & filed under Uncategorized.

And I’m talking Schweinsteiger or Ozil, not Fabregas, after his behaviour I don’t want Spain to win Jack shite, I used to like Spain, but after his display of treachery and all those slimebags begging him to leave the Arsenal, I don’t ever want to see him with the captains armband on again.

When I say treachery, I don’t mean the fact he’s asked to leave, that could galvanise Wenger into doing something, it’s the fact he’s asked to leave with 5 years left on his contract, and whilst he’s the captain of Arsenal, he didn’t object to increasing his contract for more money when he did, did he? Barca won’t break the bank for Cesc, ha, ha, they already broke the bank, they are insolvent, tossers!

First of all well done to Robin and my tip for the World cup, Holland. It’s incredible that he has played more straight games for Holland than he’s ever managed for Arsenal, is this the new fit all the time Robin? We can only hope.

Barca are losing patience with Arsenal because we aren’t prepared to let him go for nothing, how rich is that! They should be done for tapping up our player, by now he must have developed Stockholm syndrome. Rossel has said it’s now or never, well what about we already told you no, you thicko. What part of no did you not understand? So let’s take that as a never. Give the captaincy to Robin or Vermaelen and let Cesc stew for a while.

He can’t go unpunished for what he has done, we know he has done it and even the most diehardindenialCesc lover can’t say he didn’t, and yes, that is a word.

So we’ve lost Campbell, Gallas, Silvestre and Senderos. We’ve bought Koscielny, you can’t count Djourou as we’ve had him for 5 years or so and he’ll be injured before the end of July. So four first teamers out, one in, typical Arsenal, but they do need cash for all the new and improved Club level bits. So don’t be too harsh!

Do we need to sign new players though? As having Djourou, Wilshere, Rosicky, Eduardo and Ramsey back will be like having 5 new signings.

What happened to the new Messi we were going to sign from Barca on a free, the kid from the West bank, or wherever he came from, that’s all gone quiet now hasn’t it?

Who comes first boys, your club, or your country? I think I know the answer to that one.

Bendtner, although he turned up and played bravely for Denmark is now injured and out for a spell, maybe another operation, so it could be a long spell. Ramsey is recovering from a broken leg so we are in the usual position of being light and injured early doors.

We know that during the season Robin, Diaby, Djourou, Almunia, Denilson, Clichy, Arshavin, Cesc, Theo, Bendtner and Nasri will all be long term injured, so perhaps before we get to May and bemoan our atrocious luck, maybe we should at least buy as many players as we lose.

So work that one out, that lot above are almost an entire first team!

I still believe that Arsene will surprise us, and yes I know we say that every season, but we can only hope the Cesc debacle will finally prompt him to doing something, it would be strange though if we had our two best players both lining up to play each other in the World Cup final wouldn’t it!

Have a great day grovers, it will soon be at an end, we can start thinking about pre-season, and hope like hell we have a team that can compete.

    looks like Barca are truly fucked. They cant even pay their coaching staff & players wages – WTF?!? This is like a Portsmouth situation. However Barca can get away with it because of its big brand….companies will be dying to sponsor them….however they still need to re-organise themselves financially

  2. Chipo

    Absolutely classic that Djourou was wearing strapping on his knee ON THE FIRST DAY OF PRE SEASON. JESUS JOHAN SORT YOUR LIFE OUT!

  3. Mayank

    I was hoping Torres started. He’s been horrible. German defence should be able to handle Pedro. He’s a nippy fucker though.

  4. Marko

    Anyone see Ashley Cole smoking a fag on the web? What a scrupulous cunt. Sums up why England done shite at the world cup. The attitude. And lack of quality.

  5. zeus

    Barazite will play and score for the 4th straight year and still fail to make the plane to Austria.

  7. DeiseGooner

    Not seen the lad play at all but Wenger describes him as a very strong centre-half, who has made big progress very quickly,

    “Koscielny is a central defender with great ability who performed extremely well last season for Lorient,” added Wenger.

    “He has shown he is mentally strong, he’s a fighter and a very strong competitor. Koscielny is a great addition to our squad.”

  8. Mayank

    So we’ll set up
    1
    3 – 6 – 5 – 22
    17 – 4 – 2
    29 – 9 – 23

    Better but still a lot of work needs to be done.

  9. DeiseGooner

    Its been quite a rise. You would look to his development as a blueprint for the likes of some of our younger players – that by 23 they come into first team squad with the hunger to do well and thake their shot and to hopefully become full international players

  10. Marko

    He’s an improvement thats for sure. It’s just a good thing that in the last year or two we’re buying defenders who are in their mid twenties like Vermaelen and Koscielny who are both young and can last the distance as oppose to defenders like Gallas, Silvest and Campbell who are old and who spend quite a bit of time on the sidelines.

  11. alex

    remember this season everyone must submit squad of 25 with 8 home grown. unlike other clubs most of our players are homegrown.

  12. jason

    i heard we r getting ozil but the question is,

    do we REALLY want him? his dream is to play for barca scums so, probably he will end up like cesc when he’s 24.
    Keep this in mind.

  13. Mayank

    RvP wants 9. Nik said he wanted 11. If Eddie stays he might take 10 and give Nik 11.
    We won’t get a CM.

    At the end of the free video there is a video icon of Wenger on Chamakh. hehe.

    He still looks like he hasn’t slept for days.

    Got this from facebook………

    Barca Confirm Interest In Laurent Koscinley

    despite only signing for arsenal today , FC Barcelona have confirmed their interest in Laurent Koscielny as a long term replacement for Carlos Puyol.

    New Barcelona President Sandro Rosell expects the club will include Cesc Fabregas in the triple signing including Koscielny and …Clichy early next week.

    “30 million Euros for 3 players of their calibre is a fair offer in this economic climate. Barcelona will pay market price, never more we will not be held to ransom”… despite spending 50 million + eto on a non starter Zlatan Ibrahmovic for next season…

  18. alex

    Barazite i really rate. been unlucky with injuries, he had another dislocated shoulder this season but came back very strong at the end of the reserve season. Too good for reserve level now imo.

    2 assists and a absolute screamer

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEnNZQOVHZ4&hl=en_GB&fs=1]

  19. Stu

    1: new keeper
    2: sagna
    3: clichy
    4: Cesc
    5: Vermaelen
    6: koscielny
    7: Rosicky
    8: Nasri
    9: Bendtner
    10: Van Persie
    11: ?

    Ideally we would give Gibbs 3 if/when Clichy goes and Ramsey 7 when Rosicky goes. But them Wilshere probably wants 10 and RVP is gonna finish his career here so JW might be waiting a while.

  20. Marko

    It’s a chance I’d be willing to make Jason. And you run the risk with anyone wanting to leave in this day and age when you’ve got agents and money involved in football. Ozil playing for Arsenal though would be super, 15-20 goals/assists guaranteed.

  21. Marko

    Don’t be like that B.B.K. mate just you know aren’t you happy we signed someone? Who knows he could be better than Silvestre.

  22. temagooner

    its official, barca is broke. Need short term facility to pay salaries 4 june. How long b4 they become another Portsmouth. Cesc be warned

  23. Big Dave

    Now lets get a keeper in, DM and another CB get rid of Diaby, Denilson, almunia.

    Then maybe just maybe it will be all hunkydory, having a big squad is important

  25. hitman

    This signing is a huge risk. Essentially we have signed a French 2nd div player.
    This is Hull or Burnley type signing (no offence to Hull or Burnley fans).

    Sorry I meant no offence to Burnley fans.

  26. hitman

    Spot on Big Dave. Until Wenger does those things we will not win a thing. He should be here sorting out our problems – not 6000 miles away on a jolly. Pre season has already started. Priorities heh?

  27. zeus

    sixx

    yes. More bullshit I’m afraid. Would rather have Aguero. We need someone to put the ball in the back of the net.

  28. Martin Hayes Never Missed

    Id buried my end of season Arsene Wenger rage for a month or so but seeing our new number 6 unveiled today just made it all come back to the surface!!!

    This is another ‘potential’ … nothing more. I’ll give him a chance but once again Arsenal are making me feel like Im sat at The Ritz hotel being fed Tesco Value food.

  29. DeiseGooner

    No hitman essentially we have signed a french lique 1 player because thats where he came from…..Like Smalling is a premier league player, even though hes played 12 games for fulham after moving from Maidstone

  30. zeus

    Think we can forget about Fab4’s scoring as well. His head will be fooked I think.

    There are some idiots that will even start booing too, you just know.

  31. B.B.K

    Arsenal are making me feel like Im sat at The Ritz hotel being fed Tesco Value food.

    ha ha ha nice one

  32. zeus

    Stu

    Don’t say he can’t get ahead of Tevez. Maradona is no coach and you know this. Tevez was included because Maradona got carried away with his goal V mexico.

    Plus Messi MUST play and it makes no sense having two midgets up top.

    Tevez, pffff. His record of what 11 goals in 52 caps for Argie, don’t diss Stu.

    Aguero the Argentine Romario.

  33. zeus

    He got more than 16 Stu. Plus he was injured for some of the season, Plus its clear that Atletico is even more inconsistent than we are.

  34. Stu

    If you’re the managers son in law and you cant get starts it means you’re shit. And Tevez is just as small as Aguero so the midget theory doesnt stick.

  35. Stu

    Atletico were shit at the start of the season and brilliant in the second half. They even managed to win a trophy because of all Forlan goals.

    12 league goals, 2 in the copa del rey and 2 against chelski in the CL. Thats 16. 38 starts 8 sub.

  36. zeus

    Stu

    Its not height. Tevez is Big and Strong. He has more stock to him.

    I’m not even arguing with you, I’m right your wriong ad thats it.

    Keyser

    Maybe no Romario yet, but he is better than decent.

  37. Keyser

    He’s never going to be a Romario, he’s a decent goalscorer, better as an all round player. Dunno how he’d adapt to the premiership, and Tevez just had a better season than him.

  38. alex

    aguero is the best young striker in the world after pato

    him, pato, bojan will dominate in the years to come

  39. JJ

    @Geoff – Cesc is concentrating on the WC at the moment. If he came out and made comments about his club future it would show that he is not concentrating on the task at hand. He will be with us next year and then you should formally apologise 🙂

  40. Stu

    I was furious too QOS! I expected him to have a go at Wenger and call AW a cunt for buying him but alas it never happened.

  41. David

    in fairness to Koss…if a manager came for me when i have been playing most of my football in the Second division of the french league id be an AKB too.

  42. ardentgooner

    Dan gosling is available on a free… why not sign him up and release denilson….pleaseeeeeeeee

  43. chozzer

    starter for ten….do you like to
    a) call Arsene Wenger a wanker or….
    b) blow smoke up his arse?

  44. CedarBayDave

    just saw the replay – not a penalty because it was outside the box, but clearly a foul.

    moronic commentator Alexi Lawless claims it shouldn’t be a penalty because Spain had the ball most of the half…

  45. zeus

    Ozil should done better on that one. It could’ve been given a penalty but when you get such a clear goal scoring opportunity, you shouldn’t be looking to the ref for help.

    Just pull the trigger.

  46. Telarse

    One of my favouritest footie quotes ever was on football Italia back in the day.

    Gingerbeard man Lalas’s team conceded a goal and commentator said
    “…and here comes Alexei Lalas, just after the nick of time!”

  47. Telarse

    Mark Gooner,

    We’ve got the reach of a T-Rex!

    Or

    Imagine a T-Rex wearing jeans and trying to reach his wallet in his back pocket – that’s us, that is!

  48. Jimbo

    One of my French clients called this afternoon – Bordeaux fan, didn’t have much good to say about our new signing!
