    Quite right Butch, snooker is a game played by fat, beer swilling bogans, as described by Wikipedia .....

    "One version of events states that Colonel Sir Neville Chamberlain of the Devonshire regiment (not the later Prime Minister of the same name) was playing this new GAME when his opponent failed to pot a ball and Chamberlain called him a snooker. It thus became attached to the billiards GAME now bearing its name as inexperienced players were labelled as snookers.

    Snooker grew in popularity in England but generally it was still a GAME for the gentry, and many well established gentleman clubs which had a billiards table would not allow nonmembers inside to play. To accommodate the popularity of the GAME , smaller and more open snooker-specific clubs started to be formed.

    The GAME of snooker grew in the later half of the 19th century and the early 20th century, and by 1927 the first World Snooker Championship had been organised by Joe Davis who, as a professional English billiards and snooker player, moved the GAME from a pastime activity into a more professional sphere. Joe Davis won every world championship until 1946 when he retired. The GAME went into a decline through the 1950s and 1960s with little interest generated outside of those who played. In 1959, Davis introduced a variation of the GAME , known as snooker plus, to try to improve the GAME 's popularity by adding two extra colours. However, it never caught on."

    Don't you just love Geordies, they're so easy to take the pith out of!

    LMFAOATTG!

    West Ham favorite on current form

    by Govinda Dec 27, 2014 19:01

    Great result!! Poor performance. Why does Wenger insist on bringing on 2 additional defenders when we lead a game in the 85 minute? It always means we start to play panic football. Defenders tend to drop back inviting all of the play to be in our half and reducing the players that can keep a ball or that can be an outlet for a pass.

    Joint 4th on points!!! Beat Southampton, and Stoke next in the PL, buy Schneiderlin or an other top DM and a CD and we can begin to have some hope and ambition.

    How is Welbeck doing?

    by HRH Gillian Brown BO Dec 23, 2014 10:26

    I think he is not much better than Giroud but I still prefer him to Giroud. Out on the wing he is not very good.

    Arsenal need a quality striker. Costa would have been great. Bony would have been good but Giroud is not good enough and Welbeck doesn't get the chance. He doesn't look like he could develop into a world class striker but he still could benefit from more games in the middle.

    Welcome 3 points under a handicap.

    by JamesB Nov 30, 2014 14:16

    Sunderland were unlucky.

    Diego Costa was very lucky to stay on the pitch. Not least for the hand in the face of Wes Brown. He knew where Brown was and did it on purpose. BUT he came very close to taking the head of John O'Shea. He lashed out, only to hold his kick at the very last. If the ref had seen it, it would have been a straight red.

    We were lucky too. Berahino was onside and was close to being one on one with the keeper.

    Happy that we won though.

    Oh dear you dozy OLD plonker, then would you care to explain how Steve Davis was named the BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 1988 then, if snooker is a GAME and not a sport?

    Oops, it looks like I've just handed you your backside once again!!! - ROTFFLMFAO!!!

    Merry Xmas!!!

    You're having a laugh there you OLD fossil, most of the half decent come backs which you've used on these boards over and over again, you've generally stolen from me!

    Same old Botch, always a hypocrite!

    Come on, tell us all again how snooker is just a GAME and not a sport, and then explain how Steve Davis was BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 1988.

    I reckon Ronnie O'Sullivan should have won it too, IMHO he deserved it more than Lewis Hamilton did for basically driving a car around in circles!

    OINK OINK!!!

    And it looks like I've just potted the black off a 147 break here and taken yet another frame!

    And don't forget - Steve Davis - Snooker - winner of the 1988 BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award - ROTFFLMFAO!!! - you can even look it up on your very own 'oracle of all knowledge' that you consult for everything, known as Wiki.

    Not so pointless....

    by Jacks Dec 22, 2014 14:26

    I think it was a great and important result. Of course to give it away late leaves a bad taste in our mouth but like you said, if you play panic football in the last 20 minutes you are likely to concede against a better team and Liverpool had been batter all game. Liverpool trailing us in the table and possibly competing with us for 4th meant a draw was better result for us than for them.

    We look likely to survive an other round in the CL but what will that lead to and will it harm our fragile squad and chances for 4th in the PL? Who knows. At this point in time I find it hard to get excited about the prospects of beating Monaco, an other mid-table average team.

    I hope against reason and history that Wenger will buy a starting type caliber defensive player either CD or defensive midfielder during the January window. Schneiderlin would make me very happy.

    I think Chaimbers had a stinker and I wonder if he is not, at this point, a better CD than RB. Clearly Wenger thinks Debuchy is the better CD. I also think Mertesacker is not having a great year and that is costing us even if it is in his failure to organise the defense during set pieces. I am sure it frustrating to every Arsenal fan to continue to concede from set pieces year after year. To me that should be one of the parts of the game you can practice for and improve on yet it is hard to see such improvement.

    I still don't think we take 4th this season and I fear we might be exposed by West Ham. We are lucky Song is leaving for the ACN.

    11 dropped points from winning positions thus far, that would have put us in contention for the PL title.

  • Time to rest Sanchez and give Walcott, Ozill or Campbell some minutes?

    Forever the unexplainable.......

    by JamesB Nov 28, 2014 09:30

    You're not alone James.

    I was at the Utd game and we did everything right to a point. That being, Jack Wilshere created chance after chance. If he could have only stuck away his first opportunity.... After he was taken off, we failed to penetrate their defence. simple as. We pressed, then pressed harder. in the end we got too committed and let them get us on the break. The first goal was unlucky. Their second was a good one. Di Maria cocked up, or it could have been three.

    Dortmund are a top team...that are not performing as such. they are mid table in Germany at the mo. Same as us really.

    Wenger needs to buy in January. We need a CB and a DM at least. He needs to spend £50m+ too. No #$%$ or our season goes nowhere..

    You've buried your head in the sand a bit since I tore you a new one there! - LMFAO!!!

    You didn't even have one decent comeback to that, but that's because you knew you'd dropped a clanger and I'd left you with egg all over you stupid, fat, UGLY, old face!

    Merry Xmas you silly OLD sad sack!

  • I must say that in Arsenal's most productive period of outstanding form and performances of individuals, the silence on this board is baffling; to say nothing of the once loud protestations about the team and Arsene Wenger when everything they did brought some kind bleat. Now with the acclaim from the media ringing in our ears, it seems that Govinda and all have been struck dumb. Probably with astonishment that all their dire warnings of doom at the Emirates, have come to nothing. Meanwhile I'll just enjoy a chuckle at the prophets of doom. As for you John I cant believe you of all people have nothing to say!!??

    Moving to Bali

    by You Gotta Larf! Dec 17, 2014 18:55

    Bali/Indonesia - a place where they happily execute foreigners via a firing squad for drug smuggling yet turn a blind eye to stuff like kiddy fiddling.

    Yeah, sounds like paradise, if you're an old nonce.

    You'd better be careful what you do over there, you old woofter

    OINK OINK!!!

  • And up they pop!

    They've waited all this time, then, like London buses, two come at once .... coincidence?

    So libel, wasting police time as well as the offence you have been reported for. Do you have screenshots never mind now that Police are involved they will request all my yahoo posts , as they will yours.
    We had better not post to each other again. Keep larfin

  • Wilshere has been injured since, what, October? Until he has a good stretch of games but no improvement I maintain he has bags of potential. Until his latest injury, his form had been decent, though inconsistent. He looked like he had improved on last year. He's also only just turned 23, so he's got plenty of time to sort himself out. I don't think you can really write off a footballer's career until at least late 20s and even then some players make extraordinary leaps in the space of just a few months. But with his profile from an early age, I accept Wilshere really is running out of time to keep himself fit, show some form and actually develop as a player.

    I will agree several things with anyone:
    1) he's clearly a stupid little khunt, though that's basically par for a PL footballer
    2) if he keeps getting injured potential, etc is entirely meaningless. RVP managed multiple seasons with injury after injury, but I don't think we have the patience for that with Wilshere.
    3) he shouldn't be walking into the England team just because he's Wilshere, a press darling and has "potential". He does actually have to do something.

    But I've seen nothing to discourage my belief that (a) he is highly talented and has all the right attributes to be the best English midfielder over the next decade (I actually think Wilshere and Henderson could be a formidable partnership and (b) his skills are almost unique amongst English footballers where we have an overflow of physical grafters, which makes him a footballer of the future rather than of the past.

    All that being said, his attitude stinks and his rate of development over the last few years is extremely disappointing.
