Arsenal Message Board
...." Everton are coming, and looking formidable..."
The 'latest' breaking news (well, 24hours old by the time he gets it) from the anal one, Rectal Rikki, blowing out of his backside again, trying to convince people in Europe and not the third world down under, that someone in Australia knows something we don't, about our game in our country! Strange old geyser...that's 'blow hard' to you Rikkity.
Funny though last time I looked I think Manure (United in Grief) must have missed the bus, 'cos I don't see them 'coming' anywhere....forgive me if I belly chuckle at that. Perhaps some prayers down your local Kingdom Hall, with a copy of the Good Book. You know the one Im talking about Rikki...the latest gay cartoon one 'Tarzan Swings With Apes & Orangutans'....BTW . Arsenal 1 City 1. Manure 0 City 3 Ring any bells Rikki???
Funny how Rikki's floppy disk-like brain has no recollection whatsoever of the twenty-odd games that have been played before ''the last ten EPL games'' of the season, I guess we should all starting counting points just like Rikki from match day 23. PMSL@rikki!
Now now, slayer, don't lose your cool, just remember, over the last ten EPL games United have scored FOUR more points than Arsenal, and reached the quarter finals of the Champions League!
Arsenal are on the way down, United are back on the way up!
Chew on that!
I guess plucky little Everton putting up a fight, something your bunch of wimps and weaklings failed to do all season, is Rikki's only crumb of comfort on a miserable season.
I'm sure Arsenal are afraid, NOT!
There's no complaints here. That was a stone wall draw all day. To have expected anything else, was wishful thinking. We were outplayed in the first part, and failed yet again without a striker to put away the few chances we had. Other than that, todays results are the ones that will now determine how this is going to play out, in the end. Its not Chelsa or City we have to fear for our place in the CL next; but Everton and L'pool. If we are being honest that is. IMO Wenger has to continue to trust in Podolski (outside of Carzola, and Flamini, the only other fully committed player), & play Gnabry along side. Now is not the time to have faint hearts, but to take the game to the opposition, as we did in the final part of yesterdays game. The defence can look after itself, and with Ramsey back to make a marked difference. And in the end, if its not meant, then it will pass us by.....and we have to try again...and be proud of a better season than has been of recent years. The FA Cup will be a bonus......Arsenal (of course) for ever.
I feel your embarrassment, Midget, after all the crowing from you this season, all the claims about Arsenal being the best in the land, all the waffle about what you were going to win, and how far in front you were ..... them it all came CRASHING down!
Now you're fighting for FOURTH, for the TENTH year running .... I bet you wish you had never claimed to support Arsenal, and stuck with Crystal Palace!
Most combobulatingly amusing!
And there's the rub Rikki. I really am not bothered enough to check the points.
The only points that bother me are the totals, and those of ManUseless, are HILARIOUS.
I am happy with the result, not so much in the way in which it came about. City's goal was a carbon copy of the goals we ran into against Chelsea and Liverpool in the both Sagna and Gibbs were caught too far up the pitch and with the loss of possession that gave City all the space they need. Neither Sagna nor Gibbs made it back before the goal was scored.
We could have won this game and I guess that is the good news, but we lacked a lot in the final 3rd. Wish we would have given Ox and Sanogo 20 minutes instead of 10.
If we don't lose to Everton we look good for 4th and our run in will now be easier (on paper).
"So long as you're happy Rikki."
Oh, I am, Midget, excruciatingly happy, but not surprised, and would have loved to have seen your face when you checked on the points and saw I was right!
Most rumbustiously amusing!
It is indeed highly unlikely that Arsenal will win the Prem and yes, they shot themselves in the foot, again this season. That's the most galling part for me. The lads were in the driving seat and could have, indeed, should have, put the pedal to the floor and disappeared out of sight.
We can take heart from the way we played yesterday though IMO. That was more like Arsenal playing to their true potential, the REAL Arsenal. Not the soft bellied lot that showed up against Lpool and Chelski and City earlier on.
This game is not only played with the feet, it is also played with the mind and, when Arsenal manage to conquer their own minds, they are a match for ANY team. The battle is so often 90% won before a ball is even kicked.
I'm gutted about the way the lads have fallen away this time. Gutted and frustrated, because they could very easily have walked it.
Wenger is correct when he says he has the team to win the Prem.
The team is certainly not 'a million miles away from winning the Prem' like some dopey ginger glory boy would have you believe.
"that tripe managed to actually WIN"
Check the last TEN games in the EPL, Midget, United scored SEVENTEEN points to Arsenal's THIRTEEN, suggesting that on CURRENT form, United are the better team .... FACT!
Arsenal have blown it big time I'm afraid, with our inexplicably abject showing against our close rivals away from home. I think there's no way back for us as City still have 2 games in hand. Should City win their games in hand, they would be 9 points ahead of Arsenal with only 6 games to go, that's a huge gap to bridge at this late stage in the season. Had we taken the full 3 points on offer against Swansea, maybe that would have kept us in the race, as things stand, I just can't see the 3 teams above us all collapsing to let Arsenal in again.
The way Palace dismantled Chelsea tactically today makes one wonder how Wenger prepares his team for the head-to-head games against our closest rivals. Palace were very unlucky and didn't deserve to lose at Stamford Bridge early in the season, they got their just reward today thanks to Tony Pulis' tactical nous, Pulis outwitted Mourinho thanks to the way he set his team up. Additionally, Palace were up for it and it showed in their approach as they won all the 50/50 challenges and restricted Chelsea throughout the game to half chances, and Hazard was anonymous for the away side and barely threatened which again was mainly down to the way Pulis set them up.
Just when the knives were being sharpened for Wiley Wenger, just when his style of play was being written off, the lads, a much depleted squad BTW, outplayed the team thought of by many as the best in the Prem. Just when Mourinho was reaching for the silver polish, his dirty Russian lot get done, by the MIGHTY Palace.
Just when the ManUseless glory boys were emptying their pockets to show their 'support' for Moyes, that tripe managed to actually WIN (you eyes do not decieve, yes they got THREE points.) against a really s**t team, at OT. Just when Christopher was feeling all brave enough to post under a supposed secret ID.....his balls dropped off, AGAIN.
5 points between us and the top.
ALL to play for.
Why won't you talk about your master, Gillian, are you afraid she'll see it and realise you're still posting, after you told her you'd stop?
Why do you no longer post as Dodgybanana?
She wears the trousers in your house, that's for sure, and my guess is she earns the money too!
".BTW..Rikki will you join me in a prayer, its got to be in your best interest for us to win surely. Or are you still sour about having several #$%$'s ripped you this month?? "
I truly cant believe that you answered that. Is this seeing a new side of you that we didn't know exited. The one that can make no difference between fact and fiction. Are you totally insane, or simply just asking for it.........because you continually invite ridicule......must be in the genes
"BTW..Rikki will you join me in a prayer, its got to be in your best interest for us to win surely."
Are you drunk again?
How is in my best interest?
I hope they thrash you, and I hope Everton do the same next week, if they do, and beat Fulham tomorrow, Arsenal will be fifth, and Everton will still have a game in hand.
Now THAT'S something worth praying for!
"whose wife for heavens sake.??"
Hahaha! You couldn't resist, Gillian, it tears you apart!
Your wife came on here big noting herself and made you look like a hen-pecked weed!
And your pretending you're not really Gillian, when your post history shows 100% that you are, is the funniest thing that has happened on this board, it shows just how pathetic you are!
Keep it up, even your fellow supporters are embarrassed by you!
......being a supporter of The Gunners for many years I have often found myself resorting to praying for miracles, and my prayers have often been answered. I can recall that famous night in Liverpool when St. Thomas came and answered my prayers when we needed one more goal to win the Championship, with one minute remaining on the clock. Or even the Alan Sunderland goal in the dying minutes at Wembley against Manure to win The FA Cup...But this weekend I think I'm going to have to resort to several Voodoo dolls of the City team to stick pins in. Its the only way to stop them.
.BTW..Rikki will you join me in a prayer, its got to be in your best interest for us to win surely. Or are you still sour about having several anus's ripped you this month??
