Fat Frank and the England boo boys

by & filed under Uncategorized.

So Fat Frank got booed yesterday and the England players are upset, they’re lucky it’s only fat boy that gets booed there’s a few others I think are just as deserving, but let’s concentrate on the fat one.

Reasons to boo Lampard.

He left West Ham, where his uncle gave him more chances than the justice system have given the Babyshambles lead singer to get in the team, finally makes it and repays the fans by leaving.

If it wasn’t for Harry, Fat boy would never have made it as a footballer, then he was sold for a huge amount of money to the chavs.

That’s when he started telling people his education, which was at Brentwood school, made him realise he was above the sort of people he played with at West Ham, Brentwood school is a fee paying school in Essex that have pupils whose parents can afford the fees, Frank’s parents could, good for them, but Frank saw himself as special.

Some years on and the chavs are offering him £140k a week, which apparently he’s refusing because he’s worth it, and sulking because they sacked the other special one (who’s been cheating on his wife for years).

£140k a week??? that’s more than most people earn in a decade, and that people is why fans boo him.

Add that to his abysmal displays in the World Cup, and it makes him a perfect candidate for the boo boys, next up Shrek.

No real Arsenal news other than Lehman’s out of the midweek game, which will be another nail in his coffin and Nacer Barazite is being compared to Bobby Pires.

Well done to the English rugby team, let’s hope they meet the Argy’s in the final!

Fab to Barca fall out, youth news + crazy transfer rumours

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Saturday morning? And no hangover? What a treat! No excuses for a shite post then!

I’ll kick off the morning with the overspill of the Cesc Fabregas to Barca stories that were running yesterday. They have been started by the newspapers and fanned by Joseba Diaz, Cesc’s agent. What an unprofessional opportunistic piece of dirt that man is.

It seems Arsenal wouldn’t be Arsenal without loads of our players being linked to every club in Europe. I suppose we would be disappointed if they weren’t being linked? So I am going to take it as a back handed compliment, like when you tell a woman she’d be pretty if she weren’t so fat. Whatever his agent is doing, its seems pointless, Cesc has an 8 year deal and loves Arsenal.

Sportingo, the new Libelfootball.com is reporting that sources say we could land Kaka next year, given our status as a big player in the world of transfers. On the bullshitometre, I would say very bullshitty.

Jen’s has been talking to the press again a head of Germany’s weekend encounter. He was in a bullish mood when asked questions about Big Al and his spot as number one,

‘I know I will play for Arsenal again and think it may well be in our next game’

Confident and clairvoyant like don’t you think? he needs to go, can you imagine the changing room with him and Almunia in it? Wenger has to act, and fast. Either that or tell mad Jens to shut his big gob.

The England under 16’s are being well represented by Arsenal players, one even got on the score sheet in the Victory Shield.

On the topic of youngsters, Nacer Barazite put in another head turning performance banging in a hat trick for the under 18’s. He has his eye on a Carling Cup spot this year, good luck to him!

The Guardian are in support of Wenger’s opposition to quotas and have an interesting article on how it would be a backwards step for football.

Good news for Arsenal, Ade stays at home for the ACN. Bad news for Big Bollocks Bendtner, he better be praying for injuries or that Barca and Madrid start a bidding war for his services.

Right I’m off now to try and calm my fragile nerves… England vs Estonia has been playing on my mind all week, hopefully it will live up to its billing as a truly great match!

Truth were known I’m more interested in the rugby!

Have a good day Grovers!

Roy Keane and the Prawn Sandwich debacle

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Some time ago Roy Keane called corporate sponsors ‘the Prawn sandwich brigade‘* in a highly disparaging way. He did this because he’s an unintelligent spoilt brat who’s never paid to watch a game in his life.

He’s played football all his life, never worked in a factory or done a shift or got up early or stood on the terraces midweek in January when it’s pissing down, freezing his bollocks off.

He goes to games now, on a private jet or luxury coach, gets a great seat at whichever game he goes to, just like the sponsors he so hates. Those very people that make it possible for him to have the lifestyle he has and earn the money he does, not to mention spending £29 million on a shit team.

So it was particularly heart warming to see Sunderland go down this weekend.

Moving on, a blog site I can’t remember some time ago started castigating club level members as being ‘the Prawn sandwich brigade’ wrongly assuming that Club level is all corporate.

They then blamed Club level for streaming out early at half time, staying in the bar way past the restart, then leaving early at the end.

Setting the record straight

We, and a whole lot of our friends are in Club level, having been a season ticket holder for over 20 years I decided to sit in comfort and spend a little more money.

My tickets are £500 more expensive that they were at Highbury, but I get a free pint at half time, I’m in a row 8 deep so I don’t have to leave early since there’s no log jam and I sit in the bar drinking afterwards for an hour to let the crowd go, I have to say, it’s like sitting in a wine bar.

So I’m there to the bitter end as are most of the people in my section.

Looking down however is a different story, many people leave early because it’s like leaving Wembley, I leave an hour after and I still queue for 20 minutes at the station.

If I didn’t live close to Kings Cross I would never make the last train home which is why so many people leave.

Also why would you want to queue for so long if you could avoid it.

If Arsenal had expanded Holloway road as was promised there would be less of a problem but they didn’t and until they do these problems won’t go away.

So please anyone out there that thinks we’re all muppets in club level, we’re no different to fans that sit in the ground or upper levels, we’re all fans.

The only real difference is we get free beer at half time.
