Arsenal in for Kaka, Ben Arfa and Ben Alin, it’s official.

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Arsenal have made it clear that they will sign Kaka and Ben Arfa however much it costs, and also Benylin, the well known cough medicine, should Rosicky feel unwell next season, and it will be a huge bottle.

Sources close to Arsene Wenger have said he has £120mil to spend and he owes it to all those poor Arsenal fans to spend it, compete with the biggest clubs in Europe and win some much overdue silverware.

This is a complete departure from his buy them young policy, but he says ‘enough is enough, our fans spend shed loads, and I intend to deliver’Ok, that’s what we all dream about and on this April fools day, I thought I would deliver it.

This is not a ploy to get hits, as we don’t gain money from advertisers, it’s merely an April 1st piece to make everyone happy, if only for 3 paragraphs, happy April fools day!Onto the real world, Kolo says,

‘Liverpool are scared of us’

I’m not sure that was too smart, but if the team believe it, it surely can’t be a bad thing, I really think Robin, the boy wonder is set to explode and with Torres facing him, this could be the game he decides to show who’s the daddy, go Robin, go!

Cesc will be the same with Gerrard and Alonso, and the Flamster, like Gallas may see this as the last chance saloon in the Champions league.

Great days blogging yesterday Grovers and nice to see that you all share the same fondness to the memory of the great Rocky Rocastle as we all do, if only he was in the team tomorrow, like Ray Parlour but with more skill.

We need a result against the scousers, and we obviously need to stop them scoring, but hell, if we win both games, or score more than they do, it doesn’t really matter does it?

I don’t think Liverpool are as good as the BBC muppets says they are, they’re a long way behind us in the league and we were all over them at Anfield, if we were playing Everton, we’d be booking our hotel room for the Fernabache game now, wouldn’t we?

One day to go now and I’m already getting nervous, for those of you going, we’re all meeting up in the small and beautiful, you’re all welcome, for those of you not going, keep the faith and feel the force.

Let’s out sing the hubcap stealers for once eh?

Have a great day and sorry about the hopeful and very misleading headline, I’m a very naughty boy!


Oh Rocky, Rocky, Rocky, Rocky, Rocky, Rocky Rocastle!

I think that’s the way the song goes.

So it’s 7 years since Arsenal through and through David ‘Rocky’ Rocastle, passed away.

I won’t dwell on his history save to say he never stopped running his whole Arsenal career.

My abiding memories of him were scoring against the spuds in the semi final of the League cup and crying his eyes out when Georgie boy told him he was going to Leeds for £2 million quid, or something like that.

Letting Rocky go was as strange a decision as Wenger letting Merson go some years later.

Rocky you may have gone to Leeds and the chavs, but you’ll always be remembered for being a gooner, I seem to remember you coming back to Arsenal and being employed by the club in some role years later, but I can’t remember what.

If you’re up there reading this, the team need you now, so do what you can if you would, again!

You’ll always be remembered for being a true professional, a great and tenacious midfielder and a fantastic role model to all the then kids, many of them now grown up Grovers, so thanks for the memories Rocky!

Two days to go until we play the first leg of our quarter final Champions league game against the scousers, I’m quietly confident only because we’re a better team, Diaby won’t be playing and everyone will be up for it.

I’m sure they’re always are up for it but with the season rapidly coming to an end and the premiership cruelly drifting away, this team is playing for it’s future.

I think the boss may have had a tough decision coming up with Kolo or Phil but with Kolo playing right back he may have had his hand forced and the problem solved.

So the only decision for me now is to start with Theo, don’t screw around, we’re a better team with him playing, the rest pick themselves.

It would be great if you could post on the official Rocky7 website, leave your messages of support there, I know Rocky’s family will read them!

Have a good day Grovers, and enjoy the video clip!


Comeback Kings send Bolton down and thank you Krusty.

by & filed under Uncategorized.


So when the dust has settled on this fantastic 3 points we have to put things into perspective, so in this short post today I’ll try my best.

1) We never beat Bolton at the Reebok so I don’t care how, there’s a saying in golf ‘there are no pictures on a scorecard’ meaning who cares how, the important thing is, the 3 points.

2) 10 men, we only had 10 men, we only had 10 men (there’s a song there somewhere)

3) We were 2 down

4) Wenger made substitutions when we needed them for once

So a big thank you to Krusty the clown for the assist to Captain King Billy Gallas, who had a great game by all accounts, and a captains one at that.



Hopefully Bolton will get relegated and we won’t have to go to that backward part of the country again for a few years, unless that is we go to see fat Sam in a pie eating contest as that’s all he’s good at or Preston North End win promotion.

Nothing much else today save that Rafa has already agreed terms with two youngsters and one senior player and Wenger says he’ll try and keep his team together before he buys Ben Arfa, or at least that’s what I think he’s saying!

Have a good Sunday Grovers, it’s been a while, let’s hope that Middlesbrough and Everton win today so we can smile all the way to Mondays post.
