Arsenal win another trophy | Nigerian superstat on his way for small fee!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

As you know, last season Le Grove partnered with website best friends, the Metro, for a Fantasy football league. They gave us an iPad for the winner of our league, that iPad will be despatched to the winner very shortly. I don’t have the results of the league today, but I promise to share those with you tomorrow!

Instead, what I have is the Metro Fantasy League team of the season. The statistics used to power the game have been sourced from Opta’s Live Feed and they make for interesting reading, because I’m not sure I’d have too many of those players in my team and I’m not sure the fans of too many of the players teams below would agree either!

For starters, as much as I like Joe Hart, I don’t think he’s been quite as amazing as he was the season before against Birmingham. Florent Malouda has played so well this year many Chelsea fans aren’t fussed whether he stays or goes this summer. Then we have our only entry, good old Samir ‘I won’t sign boss’ Nasri slipping in out wide. I know on the face of it, he deserves to be in there, but overall despite his best season ever, I still can’t help but feel a bit miffed at how anonymous he was in the second half of the season.

Tevez and Berbatov up top is hard to argue with, again though, Opta can’t take attitude into account. If the Bulgarian was so great this season, why are United offloading him over Michael Owen for £7.5million? Statistics can support, but they can’t ever define, you need your eyes for that!

One thing I’m definitely going to do is have a word with Opta… I can’t see Denilson or his amazing statistics in the mixer? Something must have gone awry in their system? Surely the God of short side ways crabbing should be at least a sub? It’s fricking travesty…

I did hear that Wenger has got hold of this infographic, the Daily mail report we’ve lodged a bid for Odemwingie off the back of Nik B shooting his mouth off about leaving us this summer. If we’re shipping out a the man with the best stats, we might as well bring in someone with even better ones,

Wenger knows…

Still, something that will warm the cockles of Arsene Wenger’s cold heart will be the fact that Arsenal won a trophy… yep, according to Opta statistics, our combined points total from all our players far out weighed our competitors. We romped home in the Opta League and for me… that’s up there with hitting the woodwork the most, the best away record and the ‘if we’d turned those loses into wins, things would have been different’ trophy.

Basically, we’ve had an amazing season and all you lot who speak a lot on the interweb are actually very ungrateful.

I do love reading Wenger comments like that. You know, the ‘well, we’ve consistently been in the Champions League for 15 years, the fans haven’t experienced anything else’ speech. Like no one remembers pre-Wenger, or all Arsenal fans look forward to the Champions League more than any other trophy. Speaking from a season ticket holders perspective, I have to say that the Champions League is a huge inconvenience. I appreciate we’re in it, but making your way from wherever you are in the country to sit in a freezing cold stadium to watch a boring game against at least two really poor teams really isn’t that exciting…

I much prefer our domestic schedule. The Champions League is prestigious, but I don’t see the £800k a win like Wenger and the board do. I’m not sure how others feel about it… that’s just me. I’m glad we’re in it, I just don’t punch the air in excitement about a home leg against Shaktar Donestsk.

Anyway, not much else in the news bar 368 stories about what we’re doing in America (bore me later Ivan) and that we’ve put a £54million price tag on Cesc Fabregas. How we came to that figure is a mystery but it sounds big… so let’s go with it!

I’m also pleased that Oxlade-Chamblerlain’s (My World of Warcraft name) dad has urged his son to join Arsenal. Another slow burner if you ask me, but what I like about his game is that he’s much more of a traditional wide man than Theo, and he is pretty direct as well. Though at 17, we have to accept that he won’t be ready for at least 4 years. Not that it matters… I’m sure he’ll have 160 games under his belt by then anyway, regardless of productivity.

Oxlade: Would certainly give our team an edge...

Right, that’s it. Time to resume the regular uttering of an Arsenal fans favourite phrase… ‘Have we signed anyone yet?’

No.

Happy Friday! Have a great day, let us know who’d be in your team of the year in the comments!

    QoS,

    funnily enough, the Russians (AU is Uzbek, but that’s close enough) have a proverb about losing the virginity and not earning the rouble 😉

    and yes, it does make a difference, a reasonable person would drive a hard bargain for his/her soul…

  2. Gooby

    yeah Dale

    don’t know what’s wrong with the french coach, he prefers remy. benzema should have been subbed though.

    It was a poor match i wish i didn’t watch it

  3. RCLS@Work

    Christ, France are shit. They really are a spent force at international level.

    If england had failed to beat belarus there have been a shit storm.. Nothing more than a gallic shrug.. Pathetic!

  4. SUGA3

    how many of them do you know then?

    it’s not Uzbekistan where the popular hobbies are disco dancing, rape, and table tennis, it’s Kazakhstan…

    but I shall put it down to that stereotypical British ignorance and forgive you 😆

  5. SUGA3

    has to be said that Diaby has put in more of a shift for France than he ever did for Arsenal this season…

    bar Newcastle, that it…

    oh wait…

  6. MARK GOONER

    nasri’s perfomance tonight has been described as being a paseenger

    thats what he is great at and consistent at to

    apart from his excellent first half of the season the other 2 and a half seasons have been very average

    and guy feels he deserves to be our highest ever earner

    what he is doing is no different to adebayor

    at least adebayor’s came after he scored 30 goals for us and in big games

  7. RCLS@Work

    Nasri had a decent 2 months, I don’t know where this ‘half a season’s’ come from… Robin had a good half a season…

    He’s nowhere near cesc and robin’s level imo..

  8. RCLS@Work

    Big Dave – Does that come as a suprise? Diaby’s shit performance that is and Nasri being a passenger? Because, that’s what i’ve become accustomed to from those players.

  9. Iceman10

    Nasri simply had a contract year performance…u cant judge a player in the season which he is tryna get a new contract…they always overachieve… at least if Samir doesnt sign then it forces Wenger to get a proper world class player… so the Gervinho thing true or not?

  10. Jerry

    Well I’d have the Uzbecs money tomorrow, then we could go forward and rape the whole fucking league!!

  11. Big Dave

    It don’t surprise me one bit, saying that none of them were that great tonight, Benzema included, Sakho was good tho

  12. David

    Peter Odemwingie.

    Oh my dear God. Heeeeellllll no!

    Chamakh isnt going anywhere we need World Class players asap

  13. bennydevito

    Maradonna, pele, zidane, original ronaldo, romario, baggio. Messi not yet at their level imo. If the time comes when he produces on the world stage, then we can start a credible debate

  14. Wenger the liar

    Seriously, “the most important window in Arsenes tenure” (c) 2006-2011 and the two most discussed things on this board are the merits of signing Odemwinge and some racist bollocks about Eastern European men being rapists.

    Respect to you suga for not falling for the bollocks.

    And cunts still ask who we would replace Arsene with – Anyone!

  15. kwik fit

    I get this nightmare guys often that in a couple of years Arsenal will be in mid division just glad to get to 40 points every season.If Mr miser does not pull out his cheque book this summer big time frankly guys we could be Fucked!

  16. Queen of Suburbia

    Always some faggy liberal pinko commie tree hugger ready to call the racist police isn’t there?

  17. Samir

    With the Russian’s money;
    Buffon
    Hazard
    Benzema
    Cahill
    Baines
    De Rossi

    And we’d win nearly everything going…Getting lots and lots of money+reputation before our new sponsorship deals! It’d all be worth the money!

  18. SUGA3

    QoS,

    now, now…

    WTL,

    cheers mate, bollocks are just what they are: bollocks 😉

    Samir,

    the sponsorship deals are pretty fucking vital, given how everyone and his uncle brings up the gash arrangement in place at present as an argument why we can’t spend…

  19. kwik fit

    Would be nice samir but I do not want to bercome a chelsea a fucking team relyin on one person. What happens when the chelsea russian gets fed up with his toy? yes Chelsea go back to were they belong chamoionship play offs ! if their lucky!

    Arsenal outcast Denilson says he is ready to go home to Brazil because he is so fed-up at the Emirates.

    The unsettled midfielder, 23, who has been eyed up by Sevilla and Wolfsburg, said: “I’m still young. If I don’t find another club in Europe, I will go back to Brazil and play there for six months.

    “My idea is to accept any offer from Spain, Italy or Germany from a club that is playing in the Champions League. I dream of maintaining a place in the Brazil national team.

    “I’ve spoken twice with Arsene Wenger and my decision is clear. I’m not happy at Arsenal and, after five years at the club, it’s best for me to go.

  26. Lurch LeRouge

    i’m actually starting to respect Denilson in a twisted retarded degenerate kind of way…

    “I’ve spoken twice with Arsene Wenger and my decision is clear. I’m not happy at Arsenal and, after five years at the club, it’s best for me to go.

    “I’m still young. If I don’t find another club in Europe, I will go back to Brazil and play there for six months.

    “My idea is to accept any offer from Spain, Italy or Germany from a club that is playing in the Champions League. I dream of maintaining a place in the Brazil national team.

    “I don’t blame Arsene Wenger at all. I believe I’ve had my best season personally but want to win titles.

    “After the Carling Cup final it all went wrong for Arsenal.”

  27. Lurch LeRouge

    can’t stand the prick personally Kwik, the idea of any body being happy as a squad player repulses me.

    Incesc? last I heard he was heading to indo for a sex change.

  28. kwik fit

    Lurch reading between the lines with the camera off Mr miser has told de…son to Fuck off and mr De..son has read between the lines that he wanted him to go!

  29. Lurch LeRouge

    yeah agreed it reeks of damage limitation on both sides.

    Arsene: Denilson your shit, fuck off

    Denilson: Boss your a cunt for dragging me along this failed project of yours…

    Arsene: yeah fair point, ok you can kind of diss me in public if it makes you feel better and disguises the fact yer shit so we get more money for you…

    Denilson: yup might just do that.

  30. kwik fit
