Its Carling Cup time!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

What a week for the Gooners?

  • Mourinho gone…
  • Jol on the Way…
  • Spurs in the bottom 3…
  • Arsenal Top of 3 tables – The Premiership, The Champions League and the rich list…!

I could go on, but I wouldn’t want to come across boastful.

It all feels a touch surreal, but it goes to show, Arsene knows as do the board. Does anybody else get the feeling that Arsenal refused to respond to talk of financial meltdown this summer to gain some sort of transfer market advantage? Like the friend who claims to be skint in the hope you’ll let them off a round in the pub?

Just before I get stuck into my thoughts on the Newcastle game, I want to express my feelings on Talk Shite’s breakfast show. I have listened to their show all summer; talking of the doom and gloom surrounding Arsenal. How we won’t compete with Spurs (hahahahah), how we can’t compete financially with anyone, how we don’t have the muscle and that Arsene Wenger is a certainty to leave.

We are now a couple of months into the new season and we are the flavour of the month. How can every pundit be so categorically incorrect with their preseason predictions? How can they be so wrong, all of the time and we as the listeners, still listen and even bother to phone in!

The latest trash they were talking this morning was that Spurs missed out on a great opportunity to break into the top 4… at Chelsea’s expense! DO ME A FAVOUR! Not in a million years. I would put my house on Chelsea finishing inside the top 3 this year… Did I just have a bit of a Myles Palmer moment there?

Speaking of Myles “I heard a rumour” Palmer; he’s another one. I love his site and I know that I am in a minority amongst many of my Gooner chums. Seriously though Myles, how wrong were you? About everything to do with Arsenal this summer! What happened to the two transfers we were expecting at the last minute? What happened to Kroenke? Where was your inside knowledge about Usmanov? What about the Fizmeister selling up because he is spent with Arsenal? Dear oh dear!

Anyway, onto the interesting stuff!

I tend to get more excited about Carling cup games these days. More so than prem games against lower standard opposition, like Derby. I am looking forward to seeing the next generation of Arsenal children! I was hoping to see Fran Merida in the starting line up, but from what I have read so far it is going to be a fairly strong team.

It will be interesting to see how Diarra fits in; he looked pretty tasty for the ten minutes he came on at the weekend. I would guess that he is the replacement for Gilberto, with talk rife today of his impending departure. I must say, I would be very disappointed to see a player of the Brazilians calibre leave, especially taking into account his loyalty and form last season. However, with the Flamsters talent finally coming to fruition, the emergence of Diaby, the added competition of Diarra and Song, it is looking likely someone is going to have to leave.

Let me give you a suggestion Arsene, SONG, SONG, SONG, SONG, SONG! Although, it pains me to say it, he did look ok on Saturday.

Bendtner big bollocks is looking like a starter tonight and based on his own self proclaimed talent I expect nothing less than a 4 goal haul. I would expect Dudu to start alongside the precocious Danish talent. I am also excited about Fabianski starting in goal. I have read a lot of good things about him, and with Almunia failing to impress it would be nice to see a solid performance from the next Polish number one.

Check the squad out here.

Onto matters fat and grotesque, BFS (Big Fat Sam) was talking about how the big 4 missed a trick by not signing Owen, the point was emphasised by Talk Shite. Oh how I chuckled when I saw him limp off at the weekend. No one missed a trick BFS and just to make you feel better, Talk Shite were questioning your handling of his return to injury!

Anyway, I am feeling confident! Come on you gooners!

General Friday musings…

by & filed under Uncategorized.

I just watched the Seville game again and what struck me was the movement and the chasing down every ball in packs, fabulous, I really think we can do something this season, we look so good.

Shame about the Chelsea coach, who’s name I’ve already forgotten.

When he was wasting 100 million a season, he said spending money was irrelevant and didn’t guarantee success, so when he loses to Villa, he says they will take points off the big boys as they spent a lot of money, tosser (now I remember his name).

The Champions league game they had against the unstoppable Norwegian giants showed what a load of glory hunters their fans are, 24,000! Says it all really, I think we had more than that for the training session open day.

It couldn’t happen to a nicer side, well maybe Top4tottenham but at least they fill their ground though.

I’m really looking forward to the Derby game, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Bendtner, Walcott and Diarra start, I have a horrible feeling though that we’ll see Song in for big Phil, I hope not.

With West Ham and Sunderland next up after Derby, we should really try and put the points on the board, wonder what Freddy’s thinking? As he left us for an ambitious team that’s going places.

I’d also like to knock fat obnoxious Sam out of the Carling cup, so I hope he doesn’t pick too young a side for that one.

I reckon on a big score tomorrow say 5-0.


A message to Usmanov and David Dein – Fuck off!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Usmanov, you’re nothing more than a thug and a small minded bully and Dein is your pathetic poodle who is now hated by most Arsenal fans.

Let me begin by congratulating Arseblog and Goonerboy for standing up to the playground bully boy tactic currently being used by Usmanov and his pathetic poodle Dein.

Good on you bloggers, keep it up.

David Dein, I met you a long time ago and thought you were a good guy, now all you seem to want to do is de-stabilise the team when they’re on a run, and spoil our day in the sun. We’re top of the Premiership and about to start our Champions league games, and all you want to do is cause us problems.

Blog sites are the internet version of speakers corner, they allow supporters to rant and have an opinion, we are not the national press. We are part of the process that allows supporters to have some light hearted fun, you appear to want to stop all that.

In my opinion Usmanov has no interest in anything other than making money, the current Arsenal board are more interested in building an even greater club and money is not their prime motivator.

You have lost the fans, Usmanov never did and never will have them. So tell him to fuck off as well.

I am a shareholder and I would sooner eat my shares than sell them to you and your henchman.

When you sold yours, you no longer had a say, so fuck off and leave us alone.

Threatening to sue the blog sites is narrow minded and cowardly, this is England, if Usmanov wants to threaten people then he should fuck off back to Russia, where that is the norm, here it’s not.

Dein If you learned anything from your time with Arsenal it’s that we are at our best when our backs are against the wall.

If you find something in this you can sue, bring it on there are millions of fans out there that will back the bloggers.

To the Arsenal board, if we didn’t support you before, we do now.

This blog, by the way, always did.
