I just found a ground that empties quicker than the Grove!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

The Melbourne Cricket Ground! It started with 91,000 fans (a world record) but 10 wickets later it was reduced to 10,000 (happy English fans), I bet they didn’t have to queue to get out like we do though eh???

Good news for England and bad news for our antipodean cousins, but like I said before, it’s only cricket and it’s not football! Cricket is still a girls game.

Not much news about today but George Graham said this about the spuds and their entertainment value against ours.

‘They have an end product to all that possession and beautiful play, they shoot more and they get great crosses in from both flanks’ well people, that’s hard to argue with, but the Irish Independent said this when referring to Arsene’s talk of title aspirations. ‘These have begun to resemble the ambitions of a child to be an astronaut’

Ouch! that hurts, but they do have a ring of truth to them that can only be put right by a great performance from the boys against the chavs, shoot when we have the chance to and stop the crab football.

If we need to make a change to the team, change it when we need it and not on 67 minutes, that is simply obsessive compulsive behaviour, the same type that Patrick Bergin was displaying with his pantry antics in the film ‘Sleeping with the enemy’ And that my friends was scary!

So maybe a more direct Arsenal, an Arsenal that has an end product to all it’s pretty patterns and possession, Samir Nasri is starting to give it a rip, come on boys, do what he’s doing, it feels good and wins games, oh and the fans love it, it makes them sing!

Tomorrow will be cold, tomorrow will be a bitch to get to and home from, come on Arsenal, give us all something to smile about, it’s time to smash the bully boys from the Kings Road, get in there Arsene and put a team out that will deliver.

Have a great boxing day Grovers, only tomorrow and we get to play football again!

  1. Arsene Nose Best

    I wonder what he will come out with after tomorrow,well errrr didier didn’t trouble us to much,he only scored 3,but I thought we dealt with him well in these special circumstances

  2. BigRed1

    Squilacci wearing special Velcro `Sticks Like Shit` mittens to get a better grip on Drogba,
    Senderos emailed some tips as well,
    no probs there then………….

  3. David

    Honestly i feel like this our finally our time to beat the chavs,

    They are under more pressure than us because of their position on the table, and will be forced to play positive which will no doubt suit us.

    Arsh and VP to get on the score sheet.

    2-1 to the Arse.

  4. Big Dave

    I realy want to see that cunt cole crying or something instead of seeing his smug face at our place, about time he was fucked off and not us

  5. David

    Should be fun either way Big Dave,

    Id much prefer we win though.

    If e lose its no need for melt down…we’ll just put it in the ‘same old bollocks’ bin.

  6. choy

    Yep.. in the last couple of games.. they have scored 11 and we’ve scored 1 against them.

    Its going to change someday, the record.. I hope its tomorrow, but I wouldn’t bet anything on it!

    let’s tear them a new one

  8. Ja_Gunner

    Well the only positive I can draw is that Manure has played 10 home games and only 7 away…. Because of the cancellations, they have played 4 home games in a row…Now they go on the road against Birmingham who have a very good home record, then they go to West Bromich….plese God if you exist i would love for them to draw those games…..

    Hopefully we win our next 2 and then that’s 4 points cut down from the lead.. Hopefully we beat Chelsea tomorrow..then Chelsea hopefully will be back to their best when they play Manure twice…..

    I hate Manure more than any other team in the league

  9. gambon

    How funny that earthworm has a whiskey induced rant, talks about ‘inarticulate insults’ – yet can’t spell a simple 6 letter word like ‘speech’.

    Useless cunt.

  10. Ja_Gunner

    No matter what happens this season, in order for this team to go on and dominate we need some changes next season….I honestly think it maybe better for us not to win the league this year…. I would take the Carling cup and the FA cup this year. That double would be nice…

    But the reason I say maybe we should not win the league is because Wenger will finally realise that we need change…

    Cesc is world class but maybe we should cash in on him next season…40 mil should do…

    2 reasons…

    1. He wants to go back home
    2. He is becoming injury prone, this I believe comes from over work, he is always thrust back into the team too early, thus re-injuring himself. I think the team become too dependent on him….this means that Wenger always rushes him back…

    Remember when Henry left, we almost won the league because the rest of the players were liberated… Eduardo’s horror injury cost uf the league that year.. Not so much the injury itself, but the players were obviously affected psychologically…we went on to draw about 4 games on the bounce after it happened…..if we had just turned 2 of those draws into wins and also prevented Manure from beating us, we would have won the league…..

    Maybe when Cesc leaves the other players will step up, I mean look at what Nasri has done in his absence, the players have probably been affected by the Barca saga…they know that their captain wants to leave. i dont think has a good effect on his teammates…

  11. David

    Ade was a big reason why we almost won the league.

    Chamakh for all his superior technique cant hold a candle next to Ade’s scoring ability.

    Sadly, neither can the rest bar RVP.

  12. Pedro

    Sorry that twat crept on again… he’s from Birmingham, probably devastated his team lost against Spurs today. Muppet…

  13. Ja_Gunner

    This should be the plan to move forward…

    Sell Cesc, for 40+ million,

    Get Schweinsteiger for 20 mil or 15 mil + Bendt or Rosicky

    Move Arshavin from the wing. put him into Cesc’s position with Song and Schwein behind him to do the dirty work..

    Nasri to the left wing, he will help the weak link Clichy more. Walcott should take up the right wing permanently…Chams and RVP rotate at CF…

    Benzema should be a long term target, we may not get him next season as it seems Jose may be warming up to him..but we should always be on alert, the second Benzema wants to exit Real, we should be the first to to go for him….

    With JET we have an option for 3rd centre forward… so for next season……

    1st team

    …………………….Flappy?……………………
    Sagna………Djuru………………Verm………..Clichy

    Ade wasnt why we almost won the league. The midfield was. Ade was just the main forward and benefited from their creativity. In my opinion of course.

  15. Pedro

    Stu, spot on… ask Ethan if Ade nearly won us the league… 2 hattricks against the worst team in Premier League history helped his tally immensely that season.

    I’m pretty sure Ade’s stats were heavily weighted in favour of the first half of the year?

  16. the goon

    Pedro, Geoff anf other grovers,
    can anyone tell me a good pub near the emirates where i can watch this game, this is my first one in england…\

    and i hope we spank the chavs

  17. gambon

    Ja

    Have to say I completely disagree with all of that.

    Cesc is our best player by a country mile, selling him should be avoided at all costs. Scweinsteiger is going nowhere, certainly not for £20m….he’s just signed a new contract. If clichy is weak we should be addressing that, not just lumping Nasri infront of him.

    We need to replace the substandard and constantly injured players with real quality. That means replacing Almunia & Fabianski, Clichy, one of Squillaci & Koscielny, Denilson, Diaby, Rosicky, Vela, RVP. If we replace all these guys with better we will win the league…..if we don’t we will keep on going nowhere.

  18. choy

    How good was tevez today?

    What a striker, I can see Chamakh become similar with a little more selfishness and improvement in the finishing dept.

  19. Samir

    Anyone remember Fábio Coentrão for Portugal at the world cup?
    He’s one that caught my eye! If Clichy goes…He’d be an ideal replacement and some much needed competition for Gibbsy…Seeing he’s always injured!

  20. Stu

    Yeah i remember that guy. How is he defensively though because there isnt much point in replacing a left back that cant defend with one that cant defend either.

    Either way, anyone who might replace Clichy surely cant be any worse going forward.

  21. David

    Ah,

    well i felt it was time for another Ade windup debate.

    heh.

    Id love a 30 a season goal scorer but i think we have more than enough fire power to win the league.

    Choy,

    Selfishness is not something thats in our Arsenal DNA.

    I guess thats why Arshavin is so important for us.

  22. Ja_Gunner

    I just saw the highlights of the Manure game…..they attack with so much speed….

    They play very direct…I see them trying many through balls. i see them counter attacking at every opportunity…

    Sunderland were supposed to be a form team..yet Manure looked awesome.( I know it was just highlights) but still…

    We play way too slow to win the league…we need to step it up….All this crab sideways and backward passes dont get us anywhere…I see Manure making 4-5 passes and then shooting….They must have hit the bar 4 times and hit the side netting a couple times as well…they shoot on site….

    And also Wenger is very clueless tactically…Berbatov is the top scorer in the league, yet Sir Alex dropped that fucker against us….Wenger should do the same with Arshavin in big games……Berbatov and Arshavin are basically the same….they are not work horses but they can produce magic at any moment…..Arsh should watch big games from the bench…in big games it should be Nasri and Walcott….sit a lil deeper and counter attack…

    Against Manure the players sat a lil deeper and were more cautious but we had 0 outlet, if Walcott was on the pitch we would have had an outlet for the counter..As it went we could not create a thing…Then after they scored Walcott is rendered pointless…We should have started with Walcott then if we went behind we bring on Arsh who can work in tight spaces….but Wenger did the opposite…

    Then Sir Alex unleashes Berbatov against mid table/ mediocre teams, this should be the blueprint for Arshavin….Start him on the bench in big games and unleash him on weaker opponents, this way he is more rested and hungry when he plays…..too often he looks wasted after 60 minutes….

    We players that work hard for the big teams….Arsh should be a super sub for those kinda games….

  23. LAzer

    We are ALL expecting a loss tomorrow. Most likely the team and management is as well. Utd look really really good now, can we start whispering “undefeated” yet? So basically folks we are going to be 5 points in the hole with a game in hand for Utd.

    I will still watch of course, it is Football after all, you never ever know. Maybe we’ll get lucky ala vs. City and they will have a red or two to even the contest a bit eh.

  24. zeus

    If we sign no one else, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let us sign him. Then Alex ‘Valderrama’ Song can do whatever the hell he wants.

  25. DaleDaGooner

    zeus, as much as i like Inler…..the sad thing is Wenger does not want to kill Diaby’s chances or Denilson’s or Lansbury or Coquelin or Wilshere’s or Ramsey’s…get the drift? I’d love the guy in though

  26. AA23

    I dont know whats happened to this place. Sucking spurs’ cock, praising articles that slag Arsenal off just because they also slag Arsene off and allowing a scumbag maltese cunt that barely speaks English call the manager a parasite and a sex maniac?
    Fucking sad.

  27. Gooby

    just read GG comments, i didn’t like it at all. how can he say the spuds excite him more than his own beloved club?

    that bunch excites the pundits because they’re starting to look like a football team after all this years thanks to a few millions

  28. maturks

    The problem with us is the that we have too many mediocre players. Players like Vela, Denilson, Eboue, Almunia and even Rosicky should be sold off and replaced but it won’t happen.

  29. Gooby

    maturks

    mate we need those players to create depth in the squad, if most of our starting eleven weren’t major crocks we would see less of denilson for example

  30. Gooby

    my biggest wish is to beat chavs tonight and prove all those shit pundits wrong,

    i can’t fucking stand the press anymore, up the arsenal, come on!!!!!!!!!
