Arsenal Message Board
...and we didn't miss Jack either, did we? Forgive me for mentioning this, but I get the impression that the team seem to play better without him. It maybe me, but I think Wiltshire can be a bit of a moaner, and bully sometimes. Certainly throws his weight about a bit too much, and can be a bit predictable, going forward and always looking for the reverse pass etc.....Take nothing away, he's a great talent. Probably get better with age.
BTW, after putting Everton to the sword, watching Ozil make Everton look as though they had sent out a team of wax works dummies, and Manure making hard work of beating 'Gone' West Brom, I wonder where The Bali Baboon(sorry Orang UTAN) is. Probably had a skin full this weekend, and in an alcoholic coma.....
....because this is not the Arsenal of old, or Pulis in charge of Stoke. We are comfortably the best team out there, and I can see a win here, if not very comfortable, workman like. Also I think Merts wants it more than most for his team Arsenal, along with Jack The Lad.
"Shouldn't on-field tactical issues be raised with his manager first rather than running off to the press to air his dirty linen in public, Govinda?"
I seem to remember the same performance from the Dutchman with AW. The man has no respect. Simple as that.. His ego goes before him, and for my money, always has. I cannot for one moment, believe he's chums with anyone, including Fruity O'Rooney. As such there lays the problem.
"RVP , is reported to have been particularly disappointed when Sir Alex Ferguson
retired, given the Scot was integral in the striker's signing from Arsenal"...........
'can someone point to where RVP mentioned anything about this' ??
No? I thought so. Go back to sleep Rikkity.
"RVP mulls summer move: Robin van Persie is uncertain whether to remain at Manchester United and will consider his future in the summer, according to a report in The Guardian. However, the paper understands the Dutchman has no release clause in his contract, which has two years left to run, and the club will resist any attempt by the player to leave. The Dutchman, who apparently criticised team-mates in the wake of United's defeat to Olympiacos, is reported to have been particularly disappointed when Sir Alex Ferguson
retired, given the Scot was integral in the striker's signing from Arsenal."
Of course in looking back, the optimum sentence here is " and the club will resist any attempt by the player to leave. The Dutchman, who apparently criticised team-mates "
Does this ring any bells for anyone? Remember that this report comes via The Guardian, not given to reporting anything that might compromise, only burning their fingers with Wikkileaks perhaps.
However, our once upon a time hero, must be reflecting about his decision to change boats in mid stream......
"Nightmare On Cairns Street"
bl..dy hilarious. Now lets watch Rikki come riding out bare back on Piggy, in full leathers, abuse blazing from every orifice, squealing for Piggy to go faster.....this is going to be a hoot to watch. I cant wait, I'm wetting myself laughing already....
!!! "You're right, Banana-bender, they should have won 10-0, they were that much better, they'll make up for it in Munich.!!""
" "Now all I have to do is wait for the childish, unconnected dumb responses, from the usual planks...... "
Well I guess that says it all....and not just planks, but Rikki shyte in person...that's a new one ripped for him anyway. Now get to your stinking pit #$%$......ho ho ho! done dumb again
Forget the loud mouths spouting their nonsense on here, always 'little boy' gleeful about our teams loss to Bayern. Not exactly unexpected as it was. Never the less if we view it from an altogether different angle, these are some of the detail that have not been aired on here, simply because people like 'butchvicarpiggy' (call it what you may) aren't the least interested in anything that may benefit Arsenals case. But lets see. In the 2nd half, If you counted the number of passes, Bayern had 508, to Arsenals 62(fact). Now then, against such a 'barrage' of them retaining the ball, it is a testament to the spirit of our team, that this tie isn't even further beyond our grasp. Also, when considering their penalty, I can see that yes it was a penalty, but I believe (as do a lot of commentators) it was only that, and not a red card. That was harsh in the extreme, in the same manner as the one that sent our German keeper Lehmann off against Barca, when we looked like winning the CL final.
In slow motion its clear Robben had poked the ball away, waiting for the contact from our keeper, in very much the same circumstances as Ox's challenge against Suarez, which went unpunished, and was IMO the correct decision. As for the nonsense over Ozil. Give it a rest. He's happy enough. Simply frustrated and finding the PL difficult. We don't exactly have the talent around him he was use to. The media would have otherwise, as expected. Any excuse for disruption, will do for them.
Now all I have to do is wait for the childish, unconnected dumb responses, from the usual planks......
and I suppose you think that's f...g funny do you piggyshite? An old c k sucker like you, thinking he's funny is a f...g joke in itself. Funny, would be having your a...e kicked out of your mothers house, along with your sh..tty underwear......and don't think no one knows either....
I do hope your watching this Liverpool 3 Arsenal 0 !!!!! Oh dear looks like the wheels have finally fallen off Wengers caravan of hope....Toot! Toot!!!! All SQUAT with Vindaloo and pray!!
Its a forlorn hope on this board that contains so many detractors of an Arsenal team that is performing so outrageously well: that those detractors may(and pigs might fly) begin to 'support' their team in the belief that Arsenal can win not only win the PL but one or two more trophies as well this season. But fear not, there will always be this kind of statement from supposed supporters .....
"Chelsea's result last night there is little argument to be had about who the best manager in the PL is".
Totally disregarding AW's own outstanding performance this season, in giving the rest something to think about, and.in building a team (something Mourhino hasn't done) into a force to be reckoned with. I seem to recall that from way back last Nov. they have been saying we cant sustain it, we wont keep it going. Fruity O'Rooney springs to mind, plus one or two other on here. Yet here we are, with 14 to play, and although there is a few more bridges to negotiate, I would rather our position to date, than say Man. Utd. or Totters, and the ever building pressure on Man City... Please note, that nothing was said about our injured players, who have not been overly missed, but none the less, missed...yet we still manager to perform well. And Mr Pullis was never going to make it easy.....yet win we did. The point is, that we are not expected to win (anything), and this may well work to our advantage, both here and in Europe.
seems we caught ourselves a dose of Rikki's VD.........little fish don't bite on deceased bait.......yours must be dropping off by now rikkity. Nothing left to fumble with now......
I can see why AW is so keen on covering all the 'boxes' In defence. He has an abundance of talent up front and mid field in the side, and none more so than (has anyone here noticed?) young Gnabry. I can see why everyone is so hot on him, he has a real head on him for the immediate options, and moves like a Swiss watch. I thought about the kid Moyes keeps playing, and all the hype about him. Granted he can 'dribble' and can get around dumb defenders. But Gnabry is a different kind of player, if not far better than him. He thinks outside the box(no pun) and is strong and quick with it. I think we have an absolute diamond there, both now and in the future. If you shuffle all our cards together, ie. take a bench, and a team with everyman fit and blended together, maybe not this season, but we will be something to be reckoned with. A better more balanced side than both Chelsea, or Man City.....Now, certainly in defence..
Looks like we've been made to look miserly money hoarders, by Bayern Munich, or I should say our club
has..........please read on
""Thus, every Bayern fan who buys a ticket for the game on February 19 in London (will pay) only €45.00
(instead of the regular € 75.00).
"This is intended to represent a small thank you for the great support of the followers in the past calendar year."
Arsenal fans are already displeased with the current rates for single and season tickets at the Emirates, with the Arsenal Independent Supporters’ Association having expressed their disappointment last month when yet another hike for 2014-15 fees was announced.
The Premier League has done little in recent years to try and shake loose its reputation as being one of, if not the most, costly place to watch football in the world."
My point??...Could or would we ever see such a move from our club??
Yes, and pigs will fly first........
Question. Has anyone any idea, or can remember how much it cost to get into The North Bank in say, 1980++
Then 'Go compare' with todays price for the cheapest ticket at The Arab Emirates.
Now you will have the true cost of 'watching' your club play a simple game of football......yet continue to be baffled by some of their performances in the past, to a packed stadium.
Perhaps a fool and his money are after all, easily parted........And they 'The Arab Arsenal Consortium', know it.
Meanwhile Wenger keeps his cards close to his chest; as though it is important that no one knows who he wants and how much he would pay. As if it were up to him.......???? The Games' people play...
,,,,,there is a sharp difference between the two. Swans are graceful, and rarely if ever shot at, while in stark contrast Ducks are. So where have the 'funny' manure men gone now. I suppose it's not so funny getting some of their own back, and in Spades. Can you just see Arsene settling down in bed tonight, going to sleep with a 'contented ' smile on his face.??....I can.
Come on Le Poof, Erik (with a K) Cuntona, Rikkits, enthral us with one of your 'funny' Arsenal jokes
"and who were THOSE Main Men"????????"
Well now, we had a orang ---UtAn at the turnstiles collecting the money, and then there were these----
- Adams, Henri, Fabregas, Viera, Pires, Keown, Seamen, Bergkamp, and Parlour, for a start, plus the two mentioned. Does that answer your question? GOOD!
NOW THEN, WHO'S NEXT? You there, you in the back row, looking like a Orang ----Utan in dark glasses. Oh! SWEET GOD sorry. You're BLIND. I Should have known, seeing you there CHOMP, CHOMPING, & CHOKING ON A BANANA Less
SSssss! Ooooo! I don't know, John. "...there's a long way to go yet..." :))))).
However. I am inclined to take the odds on 2 nil to us. Madness? I know. But sometimes with Arsenal, you have to expect the unexpected (as you mentioned. Bayern last season?)
At last, Gov. A little hope is acknowledged. For a moment there, I thought you were going to say(like some of the eternally unconvinced) 'there's a long way to go yet'. I'm tired of hearing this pessimistic 'mantra' from some supporters. My old man used to say, 'even if you don't have two penny's two rub together in your pocket. At least try and look and sound as though you do'. Bluffing the opposition (SAF) can go a long way to their demise.
