Patience is a virtue

by & filed under Uncategorized.

We’ve shown we can win with style, we’ve shown we can come back from a setback, we’ve even shown we can win ugly, but against Bolton, we showed we can be patient, a virtue you need to win the league.

Bolton had 11 men behind the ball for most of the match and added their usual array of filthy, dirty tackles that went largely unpunished, as usual, we had a couple of penalty shouts, that we didn’t get, then enter Lewis Hamilton! Who looked very lively and Rosicky, who looked like he wanted to score and bingo.

I’m guessing Kolo scores a lot of goals like that in training and he has had many free kicks this season, the goal was a little bit of a scuffer, but it was a goal, what we needed and when we needed it, so well done that man.

After that we could have had three, Bolton had to come out and gaps were left.

I counted they only had one shot, but last season, that one would have gone in, so I’m glad we had Almunia, I felt confident that one wouldn’t get squeezed in from 30 yards or more.

I read that

Diarra may have to consider his options and I feel for him and Bendtner, games like Bolton are when they should get a run out, the last thing we need is players disrupting the squad, and good players too.

Eduardo may as well have not been there, but that’s what happens with no match practice, I would sooner see these players having a run out in the reserves, than not even getting on the bench.

It will be interesting this week as I think with the Champions league we may well see a little shuffle, with Liverpool coming up, Sheffield and ManU to follow, I suspect these malcontent’s will get their chance, so boys, stop whingeing and get ready to show why you should be in the starting eleven.

I saw many people streaming out of the ground on Saturday and when I went home I could see why, The ‘complete tosser’ who is Mayor, decides to close the circle and Met lines, severely delays the Piccadilly and stops all the overland trains at Hackney and lays on a bus service, it takes people longer to get out of the area than it does to watch the game, it’s no wonder people leave early, especially if they have kids with them.

I don’t even bother with the transfer gossip as it’s all bollocks anyway, but I’m sure come January he’ll do something, though with so much discontent in the midfield, I can’t see him signing

Modric (All3points has him playing for Kiev, show’s how well researched their transfer gossip is!) or Mollo.

But to coin a much used phrase, who knows? Only Arsene does!

Top of the league and only dropping two points, who could argue.

Until tomorrow my friends.

Oh and bad luck with the F1 thing Theo, it was bad management, 3 stops? What a twat you are Dennis.

Arsene’s X1 well, well, well

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Okay no surprise that Arsene left Lehmann out so good for him for standing by Almunia, good call.

Wenger gets Barclays manager of the month and Cesc gets player of the month, so no surprise there either, well done men.

However Arsenal are releasing Arsene’s X1 on Monday, which is a DVD that gives our leader’s all time greatest 11 players, of which I have to say amazed me, really blew me away, and I’m sure will fuel much debate over pre-match cocktails today.

So, no Adams, Dixon or Winterburn, I guess no real surprise (except Adams maybe) but the big surprise was no Clichy, Lehman or Cesc (gasp!), that’s right no room for Arsene’s son, Cesc!

What shocked me even more was the inclusion of the money grabbing slut Cole, whom Wenger says will remain red and white all his life (don’t make me laugh) Seaman, Keown and Parlour!

I’m not surprised with Keown, but I was with Parlour, so he’s picked Parlour over his love child, don’t get me wrong here, I loved Romford’s Pele, I just though Wenger may have picked one of his foreign legion, good for him he didn’t.

I wonder how he’ll explain that one to his dressing room today?

I always think it’s dangerous to ask someone who their best mate is, which girlfriend did you like best or who their favourite left back is, they’re all good and from different era’s, Wenger’s choice I find rather strange, and to include Smeagle (Cole) is very odd.

I don’t think he’s as good as Clichy or Traore and for what that little lowlife did to both the club and the fans, he should never, ever, ever be considered for anything other than ‘worst piece of greedy, money grabbing, disloyal, sub-human piece of shit to ever have played for Arsenal’

He should be erased from the records, what’s the point of being given hate if you can’t use it???

Hopefully tomorrow will be a good news day, with England bringing home the Webb Ellis, Theo winning the F1 title and Arsenal stretching their lead to 5 points over ManU, 9 over Liverpool, 10 over the Chavs and 18 over top4ottenham!, yes that’s right 18 after 9 games, ha, ha, ha.

Door closes, window opens, Chairman Wenger and a tonking on the way!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

While the devastating news that Robin joins Le List for a month is not what we’d want, it is countered by the opportunities for super Crozilian Eduardo or the Viking Bendtner, I don’t see that as a bad thing as the chances that the latter pair would begin to get irritated at their lack of first team opportunities, coupled with the fact they only have four games to show what they have, I can see nothing other than long term benefits for the team.

The news that the club will not be sold for at least 4 years will mean the redtops have to pick on someone else now, which will again take the pressure off. Arsene being touted as the next chairman will allow him time to bring in DB10 and TH14 as the dream team management pairing in 2012, so all in all, a pretty good week I suggest.

With Captain Willy back to shore up the defensive frailties of late, we now look pretty solid, if we can get through to the year end without any more back four problems we’ll be Ok, by then we should have Djourou back and have the opportunity to buy a new center back, with Richards dire performance at right back for England, his price may have gone down a tad, which could see Lehman going and Robert Green arriving, add that to our 10 point lead in January the future’s looking rosy.

And don’t forget, you read it here first!

Denilson signing a new long term contract would be good news…if long term contracts meant anything, and as we all know, they don’t, but at least he’s signed one, which is better than not signing one.

I expect the boys to come out of the traps against Bolton, we owe them a good hiding, after that, it starts to get tough, but after watching Gerrard make himself look like a donkey, and Rafa not knowing how to pick a side, I’m more confident than I was a month ago.

The ManU game is always tough, but our football is anything other than predictable these days, we now have plans A,B, and C.

I think the Grove is fast becoming a fortress and the atmosphere is becoming like a cup final game, week in week out, so for those of you that are going on Saturday, sing your lungs out, for those of you who aren’t, Karma!

For the next few months we’ll be able to talk about football again, which is what we all want, apart from England winning the World cup on Saturday and Lewis Hamilton (Theo in disguise) winning the F1 Championship on Sunday!

Not too much to ask is it!
