Newcastle United Message Board
Get over it Govinda, and get real. Its a game of football, no more and no less. To make it anything other than that is being plain dumb & manically unrealistic. Today you want everything from this team that has already given you everything any man could possibly expect from his team over the years (do you even remember 49 unbeaten) and if you had been there during the whole of the 50's and well into the 60's, (and include some of the 70's) when The Gunners won practically nothing, then you would know what real failure felt like week in week out. So from what I read here you don't deserve Arsenal and Arsenal owes fickle supporters nothing. As someone once said about Arsene Wenger, when you finally bury him, as you will, be sure to carry him out on his shield. Now take your medicine, stop p...ssing in your nappy, and get on with life. I've been around too long to be bothered with the likes of you.
You lot should have beaten Mancnobber Ushyted after playing them off the park.
Their glory boy fans are filling the Yahoo articles with gloating comments, it's sickening!
I'm surprised that old fanny from Cairns didn't take a break from her imaginary tour of Asia to post a gloating comment, but perhaps she's had her electricity cut off again for not paying the bill?
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?
Wenger isn't going to be given the boot just yet, much to the annoyance of some. More likely supporters are seeking assurances of how Wenger thinks he is going to turn around their recent form. Some smart January buys would be a good start, with defensive reinforcements an absolute priority - and PLEASE not any more attacking midfielders.
Don't worry Oinks those shyte heads, they got lucky as usual. It ain't gonna save them. The Cairns wally has obviously dropped his compass in the jungle we hope, and is now going round Cairns in circles mumbling something about where the feck am I ........
I am not sure what position we should prioritize, a DM or a CD? Should Kos be back to full fitness I would chose a very good DM over a central defender. I think Schneiderlin might be one of the best in the PL. But should Kos continue to struggle than we clearly should prioritize a central defender IMO.
In an ideal world we should sign one of each. Maybe a Virgil van Dijk at CD and a clear upgrade (Khedira? bender?, Carvalho?) on Flamini and Arteta.
However I don't see Wenger sign a quality DM this window or any tie soon.
What do you think?
Upon further reflection I don't think any of the above defensive signings will make all the difference. It would help but I think a bit of work on defending during training would do a lot more. Particularly avoiding the constant recurring error of having too many players in front of the ball exposing our (slow) defenders and leaving them isolated against counter breaks. Prevent the stuff Wenger constantly refers to as "naive" defending, or no defending. With Mertesacker being as slow as molasses you can not leave him in isolated situations.
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.
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..
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.
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.
.....has to be a good positive result against S'hampton, which could trigger a good run over Xmas. We live in hope and expectation with Arsenal. BTW any news on the CL draw or am I early?
Seven weeks travelling around paradise with my son, and what's happened here?
The sad, immature Geordie has sunk to new depths of immaturity with ..... wait for it ..... Mancnobber Ushyted ...... can you believe that? He gets younger as he gets older! I made an hilarious video on Sanur Beach in Bali, asking the locals what they thought of Geordies, I'll get it up on Youtube soon. Their reputation as idiots has crossed the world!
Then we have the yank, who has responded to Govinda's football posts with his usual vitriol, a substitute for football knowledge. He can't compete one on one talking football, so he does what he does best, shows himself up with childish insults, and the usual reference to standing on the North Bank 50 years ago, with the claim that makes him a REAL fan.
Govinda's repost to the yank's threat that he was, ".... saving this and I'm going to rub your moaning bl..dy face in it." was hilarious, it sent the yank right over the top! Good stuff Govinda.
This place really should be put down. Luckily, I'm off next year, moving to Bali. I've got a nice four bed villa on Sanur beach with a pool, a cook and a maid, (mandatory there to employ at least one person), and the chance to take a stake in a local nightclub, not a pretend one like the whole of Geordie Child's life!
I won't do what certain idiots did here last season, and brag about the fact Arsenal and United have swapped places, I'll leave that for the end of the season.
Cue the idiots ....... LMFAO!
just when things were back to normal, without the tiresome moron Ricki 'the cabbage head' Altree, we now have to wipe the forum floor with this poor excuse for a £10 pom. trying to convince nobody on here that he has been away travelling. If he hadn't been such a boring liar most of his existence, we may have believed him. As it is you will have to forgive us Rikki but nobody even remembers who you are let alone asking anyone to accept your nonsense. Was there no way they would let you stay in the bali bush with your tin cup loin cloth and sandals ? You are and about as welcome and worn as a beggars purse on here, and just as empty of any credibility.
Hahaha, I knew it wouldn't take long for you to BITE!
" nobody even remembers who you are" ..... Except YOU, Mr "I Watched From The North Bank Fifty Years Ago" Brown!
And the Geordie Child, of course, he's been worried sick for seven weeks that I wouldn't come back, cos I'm all he lives for, I'm his online fantasy world, along with his pretend house in France, his pretend property empire, his pretend fleet of classic cars, and his pretend wife!
So get back to "normal", yank, run down everyone who has an opinion on football .... John and Govinda, and show us just what a twot you are!
PS: How's Gillian, has she found the number for the cops yet? I'll bet they're just itching to track me down for insulting you!
Is, IMO, that we often push our key players to the limit and beyond. Wenger admits that Sanchez is in the red zone yet he continues to play him. Being in the red zone is not about being able to chase balls as much of give 100% it is much more about becoming much more injury prone and injuries sustained whilst in the red zone generally take much longer to heal.
We should have the depth to rotate players enough so we don't need to run them into the red zone. It is better to lose Sanchez for one game than for 4 weeks. Yet this seems to be one of recuuring errors going back further than playing Fabregas until he was injured often.
To me this is not so smart given the big injury problems we have. We don't know how far we can push it? When a player is in the red zone stop pushing him at all!!!!!
Alexis Sanchez will be given next week off after Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitted his £30million man is in the ‘red zone’.
The Chile international has been one of the stars of the season so far following his switch from Barcelona. But, including internationals, Sanchez has played 27 games since August, and this has taken a toll.
And Wenger will rest the striker after today’s clash with Stoke.Arsenal head to Turkey on Monday for their Champions League clash against Galatasaray, but Sanchez will stay in London.
‘Sanchez is in the red zone, you can see when he plays, but he can dig deep.
He played his 27th game on Wednesday (against Southampton) since the start of the season. Unfortunately you never know how far you can push it.
‘We are not scientific enough to predict that completely but he recovers very quickly.’
...defending again against an equally shambolic Stoke, as were some of the other results today. shambolic Chelsea, as well as L'pool, Tottenham, Everton, and most of the top ten. So its not just Arsenal. The result didn't matter at all in terms of position in the league. Manure going dutch, will as usual go backwards again and we are all back to where we were a week ago. Time to wake up another shambolic human, who is probably well into his third bottle of rum on a Saturday night. We should be getting some of his bucolic vomiting on here some time soon. He's about as boring as Manchester's football......
Surely, someone who owns a Bentley would easily be able to afford to buy their own nightclub in such a cheap country like Bali?
Or is this nightclub just a front for human trafficking and exploiting underage girls into selling their meat for pennies to dirty old nonces from Australia?
So, you're not just nuts deep in orangutans, there's children involved too!
Seven weeks of pretending to be travelling, but I know that you were really on the Yahoo articles in your various different ID's getting yourself wound up, as per usual. - LMFAO!!!
