BEAST

by .

Unreal scenes in London when a couple of idiots tried to attack Kola and Ozil on scooters. Why the fuck anyone would attempt to attack a man who is clearly a fucking athlete when he’s with his wife is beyond me, but god bless the response. Ozil put the car in first gear and cleared the women away, Kola went for both of them… LOVE TO SEE IT.

Obviously, everyone has different responses to this sort of thing, but it does go to show you, these people are cowards. They legged it from a single unarmed man and they were wearing crash helmuts! Honestly, the bravery is something else… what a soldier!

On a side note, scary times in London that the dangerous shits are attempting nasty stuff like that… still can’t believe the uproar when police were knocking them off their bikes.

We also signed a player! Hooray.

William Saliba pushed off the advances of Spurs to do a deal with us. He’ll go back out on loan next season and we’ll hopefully have a very talented player on our books in the next two seasons. The club has to be praised for moving very fast on that deal and looking beyond our immediate needs. We should make ourselves the best club on the planet for young kids to learn their trade.

The club Q&A was about as interesting as it always is. I’m not sure Raul and Vinnai have quite grasped how educated our fans are. We’re obsessives, we know how they work the media, we know the finances, the masseuse, the tea lady, we’re fluent in operational structures. That Raul took offense to Arsenal fans not taking positives from last season is quite something. It always worries me when the standards at the top aren’t very high.

Back to positives.

Ceballos also signed, he’s in on a loan deal, I think he’s another impressive signing… there is a kicker though… If he does well, he’s back to Madrid. If he tanks, our season is ruined.

It’s still tough to look at this window with much hope. We’ve not moved the squad along, old players are a year old, bad defenders are still bad, the captain thing is still unresolved, we’re a bit of a mess.

I totally understand that the club is in a transitional moment, I just find it very difficult to understand how a summer can be run so badly? From the outside looking in, it looks like we’re willfully ignoring the most dilapidated areas of need in favour of a really shiny winger.

Things are so rough, Jenkinson looks likely to be a fixture this season. I find that maddening. We’re trying to develop a high-performance culture at the club, and we’re allowing fans to take a squad number… and we’re having to suck up the reality of loading up average players on massive contracts, again. Literally the same issue we were bemoaning back in the day when Nik B wouldn’t leave his £52k a contract.

I like some of the backroom moves, but it’s still hard to fathom what this summer was all about… to be honest, to me, it looks like we just waited for Edu. If that’s the case, we’re at ground zero again.

Still, there comes a point where you have to just be pleased with any move. Dani boy is a very good player, Medley has moved to the first team squad, Willock looks very promising, maybe Reiss or Saka could cut the mustard?

It’s all very hopeful, but that’s football my friends!

Right, I’m going to get my head back in the game next week, work has been fucking beastly this last month. I’m looking forward to getting back to some normality!

    Arseblog seems to have sanitised the transcript of the Q&A session. The unabridged version should convince people who still had any doubt that Raul was completely out of his depth and deluded on what success is for Arsenal.

    Calling last season progress and successful is either piss take or lack of awareness.

    The good thing is that he now know that for the fans he is on hiding to nothing. If things go sour, that’s his head people will call for. And he will quickly learn that if the mob ask forcefully for his sacking, Vinay and Josh are likely to oblige.

    It also confirmed that Edu took some convincing. Either by giving more power than anticipated or more money than initially planned. Likely to be both. Bar the Martinelli purchase, we won’t see his influence until at least next transfer window.

    Heaven forbid Sanllehi try and keep some positivity around the club. What do you expect him to say “Since Wenger left we’re completely fucked”?

    ‘A place where voodoo is still practiced and albino children are murdered so they can have their limbs consumed’

    That was a nauseating lie. No people on earth consume albino limbs.

    You will even find that most African countries don’t allow males to fuck males like legislation allows in UK.

    I’m not judging no one, just saying no society is perfect.

    “Calling last season progress and successful is either piss take or lack of awareness.”

    Valentin – last season was a success because Emery was able to steady the ship and hopefully we improve even more next season. What happened at manure since Fergie retired is normal, to be expected, so Emery avoiding huge dip in performance is positive especially when he inherited an eccentric collection of players.

    I think people perception of Emery would be a lot different if players were able to win just win one more game in final month and we made it to Champs League.

    How will an unsuccessful loan signing ruin the season?? We simply play someone else

    Good post

    I am not one to make fun of Ozil for getting himself and the missus to safety, not everyone was born to fight.

    “Calling last season progress and successful is either piss take or lack of awareness.”

    Valentin was a fifth place finish after making our first managerial change in two decades the worst possible finish for Arsenal??? Because some of you have been running this idea that last season was the worst that could happen. That finishing two points off third in a season you started not expecting a top four finish was an unmitigated disaster

    They’re still trying to get the dosage of Pedro’s bipolar medication right hence the ups and downs you get from him.

    Don’t know what Dortmund really want to do this summer. They signed Thorgan Hazard and another winger (forgotten his name) but they’ve bid £37m for Malcom. They seem to enrich their fire power with all available weapons to their arsenal. Don’t know how authentic the story is but if true, they may be having a good attacking threat next season.
    Welbeck had to go. Guy was never fit so was Ramsey. They were players we couldn’t rely on season in season out.
    It’s funny when Africans are being mocked for practicing vodoo but whites are hailed for practicing homosexuality backed by law. No country was designed to favour foreigners.

  9. jwl

    Kola is an absolute unit, no doubt about it.

    And Ceballos interview where he mentions Reyes was childhood hero, thought it was nice to say. I hope Dani can adapt to English football because he sounds like Santi replacement and it would be terrific if he could reach Cazorla level.

    What the AKB cant’ or more likely refuse to understand is that under Wenger we were on an accelerating downward spiral. To level things off was a good step in getting the club back to where it should be.

  11. Freddie Ljungberg

    So according to reports we have now lodged bids for Pepe, Zaha and Everton. If any of those comes in we will have an awesome attack this season.
    Prefer Everton at half the price of the other 2 so we can get a starting CB in too and have a half decent defense as well, but I’m not picky.

    Looks like we’re going the Liverpool way of building our team, attack first. I’m fine with that, going to take a couple of windows to get all the pieces in anyway, hoping we go young (18-23) with a view to the long term.

    “””to be honest, to me, it looks like we just waited for Edu. If that’s the case, we’re at ground zero again.”””””

    Yes , but it was worth the wait though.

    Raul and Josh have stated HE IS THE FINAL PIECE IN THE JIGSAW.

    Final Piece???.

    Do they really believe this garbage they spout??
    Do the fans believe this nonsense too?

    Surely , the club ( indeed any club or any organisation) never rests on its laurels and states we now have everything in place….

    If Edu is The Final Piece in this Jigsaw- we will never solve the puzzle.

    Expect more misery…lots of it….

  13. Receding Hairline

    Marc some are trying to paint a picture that things are supposed to be change dramatically one Wenger leaves or it was not worth firing him at all. That is absolute nonsense.

    Valentin has a different agenda though, he has made up his mind he dislikes Emery and Raul (and he seems to extend this to Spanish players fancied by either now) so every post he makes is intended to discredit the duo. His agenda is clear so his posts are expected

    There are several on here that have taken the same position. Thing is when challenged for alternatives they either come up with people who wouldn’t join or laughable choices.

    Hence my position they all fall (bar one or two trolls) into AKB’s who just don’t have the balls to at least be honest about it.

  15. Receding Hairline

    Freddie some believe we should bring in players simply because they are available forgetting this is how we ended up where we are.

    To think that some of the biggest critics of the present regime think stop gap signings like Valencia and Cahill will improve us is sad. Klopp and Liverpool refrained from buying players just for the sake of it, they bought players they were convinced will offer value either in the short or long term.

  16. jwl

    Marc Yes, I agree with you about akb’s. It is odd, most gooners are aware we have below standard players, we’re lacking wingers and full backs, but somehow Emery is shit because he not miracle worker.

    “There are several on here that have taken the same position. Thing is when challenged for alternatives they either come up with people who wouldn’t join or laughable choices.”

    I have mentioned that I wouldn’t be surprised if we brought in Cahill as a short term stop gap.

    I believe the plan was to use Kos as back up this season and then have Saliba join next summer.

    Of course Chambers is an option and I’m not sure how I feel about that one but as Kos has made his position untenable we need to relook at our plan.

  20. T

    Pedro your whining about jenks deputising at RB is pretty dough. He is a far better choise to have there than spending for a position you dont want to spend big… and if they signed yet _another_ awerage player you would only bemoan how the money is again trapped into one more nonessential player 😀 He is gonna be ok. Not great but ok and that is all we need until hector gets back to his best.

    what the club neads to sort out though is the left side. have said it since last winter that kola hasnt been cutting it and iwobi has been hugely inconsistent. very good at times and lost at others…. beyond those 2 there has been monreal who is a good deputy and that has been that… 😀

    it is no coincidence that there has been a big chase this summer around tierney and zaha.

    now that the number 8 position has been fixed with ceballos which was a brilliant busyness btw. (not spending a lot and having zero risk of being tide to another player if he tanks) and hopefully the promotion of joe willock who has been hugely impressive there is only 1 immediate problem left that has to be fixed..

    and if they get the left side sorted out it doesnt even hurt so much to have mustafi play some games alongside rob or socratis if he doesnt need to defend as much as in recent seasons… %-D

    it is a wenger classic after all that worked somewhat for a bunch of years after all… signing a brilliant forward when your defence is budging

    besides playing like that is a huge crowd pleaser!

  21. Receding Hairline

    “I have mentioned that I wouldn’t be surprised if we brought in Cahill as a short term stop gap.”

    “West Ham want to sign New York Red Bulls centre-back Aaron Long but cannot complete a deal because he is unable to secure a work permit at the moment, according to Sky sources.

    Long is the MLS defender of the year and has played in six of USA’s past seven games, including the Gold Cup final.

    The 26-year-old – who is also a target for Marseille, Fiorentina, Rennes and Lyon – has a £4m release clause and wants to move to the Premier League.”

    I didn’t say we should sign Cahill. I said it wouldn’t surprise me if we did there is a huge difference.

    From what I’ve seen it looks to me as if the this summer was not to bring in a new CB – rightly or wrongly outside of Saliba but to rely on Sok and Holding with Kos as backup.

    Do you think I’d complain in we brought in another good CB?

    Kola is being heralded a hero but it’s Raul and Vinnai who should be applauded for taking extraordinary measures to create additional transfer funds by attempting to commandeer Arsena player’s high end vehicles and sell them on the black market.

    But seriously, if this is what London crime scene looks like – two idiots armed with bricks and knifes going up against a 600hp , two and a half ton G63 Mercedes, then the English should count their blessings.

    Lolz i can see why you literally have an argument with everyone on here

    Gary Cahill as a stop gap option due to lack of funds would not be a bad option

    Rugani from Juventus as a stop gap option on loan would not be a bad option.

    Chambers alongside Sokratis, AMN and Montreal or Kolasinac is a recipe for 5th place again

    That’s the thinking though, he wouldn’t need to adapt or anything and he’d be an option at least till Holding is back and ready. No one is saying sign him up on a 2 year deal are we? We obviously don’t seem to have any interest in the defence for this season which i an understand but we know what we will get from those we have got already so don’t see anything wrong in a stop gap player for that position.

    Chambers is one of those we’ll end up keeping for too long and end up selling for peanuts almost like with Gibbs, we have to be smarter

    “Gary Cahill as a stop gap option due to lack of funds would not be a bad option”

    We are finishing lower than fifth if 33 year old Cahill who was only trusted to make 2 sub appearances in the league for a Chelsea team we matched most of the season is coming in to shoot us to top four

    If we lack funds why not play the players we already have on our books???

    “Lolz i can see why you literally have an argument with everyone on here”

    And you have never argued with anyone. You simply agree with them all the time

  42. Valentin

    So finish 5th despite being in a strong position 6 games before the end of the season and blowing that opportunity is progress and success.
    Being humiliated on the world stage in a one sided final is progress and success.

    I look forward to see what you would call failure.

    What are your expectation for the coming season?
    Would finish outside of the top 4th be a success? Would lose in the final or semi-final of the Europa League to ManUtd be success?

    Kola Beast. Yes it was 2 idiots with crash helmets but it still takes guts to take on 2 men with a knife and a brick attacking from behind. Didnt panick and freaking took the fight to them.Defended His mate and his missus valiantly , wish he was as good a defender on the pitch too though. Why arent Inter behind him he would suit Conte’s system perfectly. His suspect defending may be the problem but even Alonso was a bad defender. Anyways could keep him as the backup behind Tierney for a season and then sell him next season when he has realised he is not gonna get game time here.
    Raul stating the pros of Saliba being loaned back and how we are going to have a top centre back for the next decade. The Direction in which we are going looks exciting.
    Amaechi close to joining Hamburg for 2.2 mil reportedly. Even if the club decide to sell him we should include a buy-back option in the contract . Doesnt matter even if its as high as 50 mil. Just look at Sancho. Went from a prospect to a 100 mil player in the space if 2 seasons.
    I think Cabellos’s best position is #8 but get a feeling that Emery is gonna play him as #10 like he did with Rambo. Honestly he is a ball- carrier and needs to start from deep. Would love to see what he brings maybe a bit Cazorla like. How We’ve missed the diminutive magician. Probably the most underrated PL player of all time.

    I don’t understand this and how anyone can defend him as a good signing stop gap or not based on trophies he won for a club who decided he was only good enough for 2 sub appearances the season ended. What are the gains of this particular move ,,,,seeing another rivals has been ending his career here ??? Was Silvestre not enough??

We are reportedly chasing Abou cisse . Dont know what he’d offer but as long as he comes in and is above Mustafi in the pecking order ill be happy.
    Juve have 5 very good defenders and need to sell now. Why not take Rugani on loan with option to buy. Talented player never really got a chance and now with De ligt’s arrival he is maybe the 4th even 5th choice there.

    Emery usef Mustafi extensively last season. Part of the reason also was injuries but still he Trusted in him . He even started ahead of Holding during the first few months.

So theres not even an argument there. And why do i have to remind every1 we still have Chambers. And with everything going on with Kos i expect him to start the season along with Sok.

    Un, not sure intolerance is the correct term but you certainly use RH’s nationality as a stick to beat him with, what’s the word for that again?

    Bris, you have ever right to be discusted at homosexuality, your personal oppinion is and should remain your right but if you want to push that opinion onto others then were talking about a different subject entirely.

    I was deemed obsessive to champion Saka, Nkethia, Willock and Nelson who are now recognised as part of the first team setup.
    While some keep pushing Zach Medley as a possible without having seen him play.
    He is definitely not ready. He needs at least one season alongside a seasoned pro to iron mistakes from his game.
    I would be extremely surprised if he were to make it at Arsenal. He has technique and is a decent passer. However he keep getting on walk about chasing strikers way too far and leaving gap behind. Same things than John Stone at ManCity, all the attributes to be a world class defender, except that he does not think like a defender and times and times again he get caught. He lacks the instinct and/or experience to sense danger.

    Your ignorance is appalling. Just to educate you further, Albino sacrifices are an east african thing, not Nigerian.

    Human sacrifice occurs in the USA too and everywhere, but you are so thick you imagine it only happens in Africa.

    Watch the Devils Advocate, starring Keanu Reaves and Al Pacino, and learn that wherever the occult exists blood sacrifices follow in 1 guise or another.

    Stick to football and your opinions about Spurs.

    “To think that some of the biggest critics of the present regime think stop gap signings like Valencia and Cahill will improve us is sad“

    Smart free transfers for a club with no money would improve us, not sure how you missed that memo. Antonio Valencia captained United, and started 33 PL games season before last. He’s better than Carl fucking Jenkinson as a backup RB.

    You don’t look for arguments though, absolutely not you.

    “I am fine with no one coming in if the option is Cahill, we are still conceding bucket loads with Cahill so what’s the point?”

    Yea you were also fine with Denis Suarez. If we got a Cahill on loan last January it’s highly likely we’d be playing CL football this season. 🤡

    You do realise that a) that its a pure work of fiction b) I don’t remember any human sacrifices in the film anyway.

    Works of fiction have an element of realism in them. That’s why a lot of research is done on casting, plots, history, locations and all the things thespians do to make a movie stand out from the rest.

    Remember a scene where a black dude was on trial (I can’t remember his name now) and the argument was that blood was a currency in his religion or something close to that. Watch the movie again and listen closely.

    Secondly Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut or something, I’m not sure if that is the name of the movie.

    Another interesting one is Inception starring Leonardo Dicaprio and the depiction of dream espionage, it sounds like fiction but it explains deja-vu.

    There is always a real story that makes fiction stand out as real. I won’t add Harry Potter because it was fun, but going deeper into witchcraft you’d find blood sacrifices and I’m certain in North and South America, witchcraft is a thing. In nations like Cuba, Brazil and the USA to some extent.

    Funnily enough, I am back home tomorrow for one night only seeing a couple of friends. I plan on getting out of that dump ASAP.

    I think I’ll take black cabs everywhere. No walking and no public transport.

    As a Londoner who now lives in the countryside…I hope London fucking burns. Let the animals eat each other. Cunts.

    Sad but true. Less than half of London is English and less than that are Londoners. Funny how all the farmers and northerners develop a plumb once they get here though. And the Scots, they start sounding like a cross between Joanna Lumley and a Californian beach girl

    ‘Then we sign some middle of the road CB who’s average for the fee we can pay, Saliba turns up at Spurs next year and looks great and by the end of that season people are saying ‘how the fuck did Spurs sign a CB for £27 Million who is now worth £60 Million and looks a superstar at 19? Outsmarting the market Sanllehi? We’re a fucking joke’.

    Hold your horses Cesc ! Let Saliba prove himself first before you sing praises of Raul and the player. Just as those who have little faith in the new management seem very biased to you, one could as well accuse you of looking to aggrandize the new management at every opportunity. We have seen many much heralded signings flatter to deceive. Xhaka springs to mind.

    Well done. Between now and then how many non natives have done similar? Read about the North African, sorry “French” couple in Clapham who tied up and tortured their nanny as they thought she was a witch?
    What about the African girl who tortured her brother as her new bf said he was a cursed?

    Or the other African aunt who tortured the girl her sister sent over to death and said she was bewitched??

    Cesc Appeal and Marc – I was thinking same as you two, peculiar day at Le Grove today for sure. I think it was Hunter who would leave crazy comments late every night like he was writing manifesto but other than him and comments, this strangest eve in a while. Hope you two are well otherwise.

    On a serious note – if it’s a highly disturbed individual then I’ll sleep a lot safer once he / she is locked up. If it’s a more wide spread issue then its a lot more frightening.

    Kolasinac is a fucking G. Completely nuts but my word, brass balls.

    Not an Ozil fan but how can you not feel for him, coordinated attack on him ten mins from his home with his missus in the car. Absolute scum running rampant over in London atm.

    Bonucci had a similar incident and responded like Sead, had some assholes pull up on him at gunpoint in Naples on a moped too and elected to stare them down and then throw them a hook to the dome, ran them off.

  101. TR7

    From whatever little I have seen of Ceballos, he looks more like a replacement for Ramsey to me that for Ozil. I would not be surprised if his arrival resulted in less game time for Xhaka. Xhaka stays deep and springs the ball around on the flanks. With Cebellos, we could probably switch our style from deep passing to carrying the ball up the field. Probably his arrival will mean Torreira taking the DM role which he seems to relish more. Torreira -Ceballos -Ozil trio is worth a try. Torreria-Guen-Ceballos is a plausible option too.
