Derby County Message Board
Top 3 finish would be great and arguably and sadly the best progress we can now hope for. The FA cup would be a nice consolation price.
I would take top 3 over FA cup and 4th. I think a top 3 would help in the summer recruitment since it guarantees CL football and top players nowadays tend to want that guarantee. I hate waiting till the after CL pre-qualifying to see if we sign top players.
Having said that 5th at this point is as likely as 3rd or 2nd IMO. At least no more pointless CL football to tire our squad.
Mancrapper Ushyted DUMPED out of the FA Cup despite trying their best attempts to dive and cheat their way through the match, and Danny Welbeck scoring the winner...MAGIC!!!
Once again David de Gea kept the scoreline respectable, Mancrapper Ushyted were lucky to lose 1-2.
Where's that old tranny Butch these days? - LMFAO!!!! No FA Cup for Ugly van Gallstones, Mancrapper Ushyted and their SHYTE fanbase.
..but where's BendOver Butch.......I need a good laugh this morning...I just cant live without some input from the deserts of outback cowboy country and its resident humpty backed ten pound pom.....Perhaps he's been lyig low with sweetblindest in the Dordogne...????
Arsenal do seem to get more than their fair share of injuries.......Just unlucky or something else like not resting players when they show very early signs? I would not have thought so but Wenger knew Ozil was playing with a niggle and did not force him to rest (Ozil said he wanted to carry on)!
All's okay with me, Lotto, same with you I hope---can't say the same about Pools. None league football for the 1st time in a 100 years coming up.
Haven't bothered with the boards recently, anything interesting anywhere or same old.
I don't know if its the same with anybody else, but if you don't scratch your head and wonder about the almost unexplainable, such as the Arsenal team itself, then you know more than I do, because to try and explain their never ending ups and downs in performances has now become a subject that even has the media scratching their heads. Tell me someone please, how is it that a team can play another off the park and still lose. Then almost in the same week, come out and comfortably beat a top European side in one of the most competitive football competitions in the world ?? That to me at least is indeed simply psychological. It has to me. One can almost make a case for sheer bad luck ( once again we are left without another key player for 3months) but surely not continues bad luck? Meanwhile I will continue not to get too downhearted about something that it almost becoming a regular occurrence.
A handy 3 points? Having seen the game my opinion is, as most team are struggling against so called inferior sides, this was a good result given the 'shut them out at all costs' methods adopted by the afore mentioned. It isn't the Arsenal's or the Man C's that cant play their game of football, they aren't allowed to play 'football' any longer. Its just a game of tactics. How the hell does Sunderland side hold Chelsea to a draw, if not by adopting the 'shut them out at all costs attitude'.? And that includes knocking them down with tackles that are killing off good players for long periods of time. If the perpetrator is only going to get a yellow(on average) for it, what chance do top teams have when they are p-laying with the 'handicap' of fear. Worth a thought when your a struggling team trying to stay alive in the PL where the money is.
Good to see....
..... that, as usual, you fail to notice that YOU are completely ignored on here, except by the Geordie child!
Guess this was a fair result. Not impressed with the way this game was managed by Wenger. Why not give Campbell a chance at some point? Three small players like Carzorla, Rosicky and Alexis where never likely to bother the Southampton defense. 4th will be harder than many think and I still don't think we will finish 4th this season. And the bad news is that we didn't lose this game in defensive midfield. We were just out played by a better prepared side and more disciplined side.
I'll hazard one guess as to who is reporting message threads so that they get deleted!!!
Fill your boots Butch or your pants, which ever is the easiest for an irritated old granny like you?

I said it was harsh to judge his scoring ability based on the fact he was played out wide mostly at Man United, but it is way too early to judge him either way yet. We will have a clearer idea of what sort of striker he is for Arsenal at the end of the season, and I will reserve judgment until after maybe his second season, as the prem is filled with one season wonders and flops.
Once England started playing him upfront we saw what he was capable of, but the reality is Man United have been alot better than England for some time, and competition upfront meant he had to go. Fact is he has immense power, pace, technique and works hard for the team. I said if he gets a run upfront (which he has never had) and gets his confidence up he will develop into a real force of nature.
"Welbeck hits a hat-trick, the people who were knocking him on here fall silent!"
Except for the THREAD and POSTS they made!
Geordies, if god hadn't invented them we'd have had to make them up!
How typical is this ... when Welbeck was contributing nothing, the Brown idiots were nowhere to be seen.
Then he scores against a bad team and they're on here calling him the new Henry, and claiming it was Wenger's best ever buy.
Now he's had his typical anonymous game, and where are they?
Nowhere to be seen!

No attempt of a reply now in over 10 minutes? I bet she's off for a little lie down now, feeling all defeated and muttering "geordies, geordies, geordies, geordies" under her breath!...you gotta larf!...AAAARRRRHHHH!! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha HIC!!...and more ..AAAARRRRHHHH!! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...
I think Wenger is protected against himself to some extend. With Giroud out he can't play a striker too slow and only good at holding up the ball and linking up, with Arteta out he is protected to play a player not fast enough and not good enough to play DM and with Ozil out he is protected to play Ozil in the wrong place and to play a player who does not always seem up for it.
I just hope Wenger will play Ox on the wing as replacement for Ozil. Ox has a lot to learn but I prefer his directness and speed. It is time IMO we play with only one real nr 10 and three speedy forwards in Sanchez, Welbeck and Ox. Cazorla as nr 10 behind them would do me fine.
Well oh dear we cant let the poor dears wear themselves out now can we. Well not for that money. Its disgraceful the work they are put through. Having said that though, there are very good players out there who would give their right arm to even get on Arsenal bench, never mind play. So what do you think AW meant when he said 'as soon as he can take enough pain again.....' ? Was he just saying ' I'm sick of these ballerinas paid a fortune for dancing around the pitch and getting blown over by a puff of wind. Then want weeks off on full pay...' Seems he was taking the rise out of people like you who probably have never had to do daily work outs and face 90 minutes of 'hard graft' for wads of money a week......Its a bloody hard life. In the mean time " what about the workers" ??? It used to be a pork pie, a pint of bitter, a packet of cigs, a cloth cap and a rattle once upon a time. Not any more. So #$%$ the footballers at the top. Personally the way 'football for the people' is going it doesn't matter a damn to me, if Hull turn Arsenal over tomorrow. Wenger should just walk away and give the basterds the finger. He's crazy taking anymore of the #$%$ thrown at him if he doesn't win. People like you Govinda will only understand once he has gone. Then you can move on and take your #$%$ to the next bloke who's mug enough to take the job on.
You better hope that Arsene Wenger doesn't turn it around, because I'm saving this and I'm going to rub your moaning bl..dy face in it.
I thought you don't bother with the likes of me?
Probably by many opinions, the greatest snooker player ever to pick up a cue. Yet never once invited, when there were times he would have won the Sports Personality of the Year award hands down
O'Sullivan's snub is not only thoroughly embarrassing joke, it is bloody disgraceful. A skier who is visually impaired and her guide have been nominated. So too has Charlotte Dujardin for a spot of horse-dancing, or dressage as it is better known, with her horse Valegro. But not a World Champion who has entertained and provided some of the greatest snooker, and 147 breaks the world has ever seen, for millions upon millions of BBC viewers
You would have been as well nominating the Newcastle United fan who decided to do a spot of horse boxing a few years back. You couldn't make it up. But in the BBC's case you can. You would have got a better list of candidates asking the horse. The BBC? A place for fairies and horse faced women who prefer the former.
no sign of butch the cairns mongrel utd supporter when he's needed to explain how Manure cant win a trick with the Dutch 'master' ARRRRHHHHH! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha h aha....oh dear pmsl so much. What was that?? Van who?? AARRRHHH! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha........Rickety Rooney! AARRHHH! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.....oh please!!!
Now Govinda, if that didn't satisfy you watching Arsene Wengers team give Hughes and his Stoke bully boys a good spanking, sending them back to where they came from looking like well slapped #$%$ They were chasing shadows the whole game and couldn't believe they looked like wax statues we were playing against
