We hate Alan Shearer

Last night, I couldn’t bring myself to watch the Arsenal game on Football First, I had already watched most of it on a stream and it felt like I had watched the same game for the last 5 months anyway.
But I couldn’t resist it, I thought just watch the highlights on MOTD.
As usual I had to sit and watch every other game before the Arsenal game was shown.
After about three minutes the Arsenal game was over no analysis which is not a major problem as Hanson and Shearer are serial Arsenal haters anyway.
One of the games I watched was the Fulham v Portsmouth game. Not a bad game to watch and both teams had there chances in the first twenty minutes of the game, it could have gone either way. But as you know it ended 3-1 to Fulham.      


After the game one of our heroes big Tone was interviewed and like the great man he is never shirked the questions but he was obviously under a lot of pressure.

Anyway back to the studio, I cannot remember the exact words but the way Alan ” I have never been a manager” Shearer talked about Tony Adams’s position as manager of Portsmouth was disgusting, he had a smirk on his face on every comment and his one liners were just putting the boot in.

I remember Shearer stamping on Tony Adams many years ago I don’t know what year, It was near the corner flag and the referee missed it and it so got put in front of the FA but they threw  it out because Shearer was England captain at the time.

Oh can I wait for that geordie tosser to become manager of Newcastle.

On to yesterdays game, what a bore feast that was.

I haven’t done any player ratings (if someone wants to, I can stick them in later), We may as well use the same ones as jonjon used on Fridays post, apart from the only real highlight from Wednesday RVP was left on the bench.

Oh Mr Arsene why, oh why?  One theory is he was on 4 yellows and if he got another he would miss the Spud game. Well that backfired as we lost 2 points yesterday by not playing him, it was like he was banned for one game anyway, sometimes Arsene, sometimes.

Nasri is starting to look like the only other  player coming out of the season with any real credit, it’s just a pity that he is the only one who is capable of breaking into the opponents penalty area in a forwards direction.

Mr wenger is also moaning that every team keeps coming to the Emirates and defending, perhaps he should look no further than our style of play. We just keep the ball passing sideways, what are the other teams supposed to do run down our end of the pitch and let us walk it in.

We are suffocating the play if we played deeper we would have space to run into but we don’t break with any pace anymore.

The only good piece of news is that the £47 tickets for the Spud game next week were sold to Arsenal fans for £37 because of a administrative cock up and the Spuds want there tenner back. ha ha don’t forget to wave your tenners at the spuds next Sunday.

    i hate Shearer. i think his a Proper cluster fuck,

    good post aswell Ave

  2. avenell says:

    Hi raif, thanks mate.
    it came into my head this morning when I heard tony thought about walking last night, no matter what the man is he isn’t a quitter like shearer.
    Taking a job on the TV moaning about others is a job for a quitter.

  3. raif says:

    ahh yes i totally agree, its easy to sit there on a TV program and talk the talk asif his a Vet at doing it himself.

    i dont think he will ever go into managment. as he wont want somone else sitting there doing what he does about his Managing skills

  4. avenell says:

    We all got used to alan “asda” hanson being a knob.I wonder what advert shearer will end up doing.

  5. raif says:

    hahahah his done some already

    i know he has i just cant remember what advert it was.

    also a few voice overs aswell

  6. avenell says:

    On that Alan hanson advert .. he should have that dog on a lead in a public area and dogs shouldn’t be allowed on playing fields as there deposits can cause blindness in children.

  7. raif says:

    people are trying to bust my balls on LG. lol.

  8. avenell says:

    raif… just so you know. I said to the owners of LG we wouldn’t talk about LG on here.

  9. raif says:

    ok mate. get rid of comment

  10. avenell says:

    I would like to leave it if it okay with you raif.
    it wasn’t nasty and it lets others know for the future.

  11. Big Raddy says:

    Raif. We settled that… my guess is that you just didn’t think about what you wrote. Once things are in print the intention changes. What that JD wrote was racist filth, and unfortunately you gave him credence by agreeing.

    I am sure you are not like that.

  12. avenell says:

    Morning raddy.

    I’m sure raif has learned a lesson and he will not make the same mistake again.

    How was the game yesterday? I’ll put my hands over my ears. 🙂

  13. raif says:

    ofcourse im not like that Raddy, and thank you aswell

    it was a Copy and paste job on my part and i should have lookd at my comment before i clicked Submit.

    other wise i would have got rid of th word and stuck somthing else there.

    partly reckless on my part once the comment was gone it was to late so i just had to stick up for my self even if i was in the wrong. and then slowly ease in the apologie.

  14. Big Raddy says:

    That is quite funny Raif !!

    The game was the same as the last 10 Avenell. Ade was shite. We had no bite. Denilson was light. Almunia was a spectator. Our crossing was woeful. Eboue spent more time on the ground than standing up. The defence had nothing to do. No-one had a shot. Plenty of sideways passing. We had 70% of the possession. AW persisted with players out of position – Nik on the Right Wing.

    Same old, same old

  15. avenell says:

    Are you glad you went then raddy?

    I suppose you are finding things quite cheap over here compared to denmark so it’s not like it’s a big waste of money.

  16. raif says:

    is it a Good Funny or a Bad funny 🙂 haha

    about the game your Spot on Raddy. it was utter shit to say the least. i wish i never went.

    ive hated our crossing for years, we just had good players to cover that up with good football. now its plain to see.

  17. raif says:

    Raddy lives in Denmark?

  18. avenell says:

    wonderful, wonderful copenhagen.. 🙂

  19. Big Raddy says:

    Yes, it is true. I live in the land of Bacon. And wasn’t at THOF (thankfully)

    The last decent crossing FB we had was Ashley. I know he is hated now, but he was a fantastic player.

  20. raif says:

    Raddy, how is Nikki B seen by people in Denmark?

  21. raif says:

    by the media and the public?

  22. avenell says:

    I got that completly wrong then raddy. I thought you flew over to watch a game with a friend. sorry.

    This may sound a stupid comment, but is there like a load of pig farms in denmark then or is it just one area?

    Sorry to talk about this rico.. 😦

  23. avenell says:

    Latest on arshavin is zenit are waiting for arsenal to agree on the £15 million asking price (they may drop a bit lower) and there is a private jet waiting to bring arsh over…. come on arsenal stop playing games now!!!!

  24. Big Raddy says:

    Amazing Facts about Denmark….

    There are over 25 million pigs in Denmark.

    Population 5.5 million.

    Are there a lot of Pig Farms….. YES !

    And they export all the good stuff !

    Nik B….. He is really big news over here. All the Arsenal games are shown live in anticpation of his appearance. And of course, they love his Jonny Big Bollocks attitude. He has been terrific for the National team, and plays with a freedom that we never see at THOF. He is going to be a big player one day. Hopefully at the Arsenal

  25. raif says:

    i really Like Nikki B, i think he could be a massive player for us.

    tho im worried he will be sold and does amazing for another club, witch would tell me he couldnt play wenger ball

  26. avenell says:

    Peter cech’s crown is slipping away, that’s 2 lehmann size errors in the first 25 mins.. 🙂

  27. kelsey says:

    Hi Guys,

    Yes Cech looks all at sea.Watched the Newcastle match.Howard Webb makes a spot on decision with the booking of Duff ans simulation therefore no penalty,and then 5 minutes makes a complete cock up by awarding a penalty that wasn’t.Looks like he gave into home fans pressure and may have had a doubt about the first decision.That’s why on occasions like this,a 30 second video evidence would clear things up.

  28. kelsey says:

    I reaaly think for whatever reason Wenger has lost control of some of the players and also their respect for him.I think Bedntner and Ade will never play well together as with Toure and Gallas,too much in house fighting,then the Lady Bracewell Smith being asked to leave or chucked out,simply isn’t Arsenal.

  29. avenell says:

    I could understand the throwing of nina off the board if we see some difference in our transfer policy, but we still rely on buying the one player, and if that falls through we are left with no one.

  30. avenell says:

    Lumplard red card hahaha…

    and gob shite terry yellow, and he misses the next game so that yellow cards all get taken off theory is wrong.

  31. Rasputin says:

    Hi Roadsters,

    I’m just in from work and have just seen the incidents in the pool / chels game and it reinforces something I’ve thought for a while……If you look at the fwank sending off incident in slo-mo, you’ll see that Alonso petulantly kicks through the ball at the player – that’s exactly what he did when he injured Cesc. I know he texted him every day afterwards in guilt, but I think it is a part of his game and he meant to hurt Cesc then and he did the same today…although I won’t lose any sleep over Lamps.

  32. avenell says:

    Hi ras how you doing mate?
    working on a sunday, must be plenty of money in your game..

    I was only watching lampard tbh. I will have another look later.
    I thought cesc got injured mainly because he sort of flapped at that tackle rather than go in with more conviction.

  33. Rasputin says:

    Hi avenell,

    As soon as I saw the 50/50 tackle with Cesc I thought Alonso kicked through the ball knowing he’d damage the player. I mentioned it to a gooner mate of mine and he said he had always thought that Alonso was a nasty piece of work. I watched the incident on several occasions and it looked worse every time. I think his ‘coming together’ today was exactly the same. There is a fine line between competing for a ball and thinking to yourself ‘well if I don’t get the ball, I’m gong to get the player’ These guys are fellow professionals and should respect the spirit of the game. I’ve posted the same observation on LG and no-one’s commented – just goes to show that AR is a much friendlier site! 🙂

  34. avenell says:

    Or we are more desperate to keep our posters ras. 🙂

    I’m going to have a look at that theory. alonso always seems like a nice boy and butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth. lol
    I don’t mind a bit of a nasty streak in our players like the one bergkamp had though.

  35. kelsey says:

    Hi Ras,
    you are spot on about Alonso,and Guillt picked it up in the post match summary.
    I think Czeh was wearing ice skates,he looked shaky all through the match.Liverpool deserved the win i.m.o.

    This yellow/red card rule is difficult to understand.Does it mean any yellow today starts as the first one(as the others before today are wiped out) or am I wrong.Ade and Robin are on 4 and possibly Clichy as well.

  36. Rasputin says:

    Hi Kelsey,
    I am pleased its not just me! I still wouldn’t mind seeing Alonso in an Arsenal shirt, but I think sooner or later people will get wise to his mean streak. I didn’t see the post match interview but must say I’m surprised Gullit mentioned it. SWP should have had a red yesterday for kicking back at watsisname – long throw fells, who got sent off. They said that the ref can’t have seen it but he was running straight towards the incident and obviously chose to let him off! You do wonder when clubs with fabulous wealth get decisions going their way – but haha…they lost anyway

  37. Rasputin says:

    On another subject, I had a bit of a lump in my throat listening to DD on 5Live this morning. He really is a highly intelligent guy who clearly loves Arsenal. He was guilty of bad judgement in the way he handled the Usamov affair, but he speaks with such authority and he understands football and finance – I’d like to see him have involvement in the club again in the future. He’s an AKB (they’re best mates)- but one whose opinions I’d listen to 😉

  38. avenell says:

    Although mr wenger obe and david dein are friends they seem to share different views. arsene doesn’t seem to like foreign investers coming into english football where dein clearly does, also wenger is fully supportive of the emirates but mr dein wanted us to hire wembley.

  39. Rasputin says:

    avenell, they wouldn’t have worked so well together if they both shared the same views. I think it worked before because they respected each other’s opinions. I don’t think there has been anyone at Arsenal since DD who has been able to affect AW’s thinking and he sometimes looks like a very isolated man to me. I’m with mr wenger obe on building the emirates – we still don’t know the best route on foreign investment, but it may just be a matter of time any way?

  40. Wrighty7 says:

    Evening all,

    Completely unArsenal-related.

    How good is Messi?

    That kid will be the BEST player in history.

  41. Rasputin says:

    Oh lordy – they’re on about the finances and Highbury Square again on LG….give me strength…it’s almsot as boring as the Arshavin deal/no deal

  42. avenell says:

    Evening wrighty.. I bet messi wouldn’t have played in a blizzard in london today. that takes a real man.

    I must confess ras i did post one comment on wrighty’s about the finance, it won’t happen again. 🙂

    Problem is it’s not football anymore it’s a buisness and we are the punters.

  43. Thank the lord for a proper, well informed blog !!

  44. kelsey says:

    I did ask the odd question,apparently we made 1.5 million last year net,but the accounts came out before the summer,oh never mind,let them get on with it.

    I think having watched both games today,video replays are essential,there is too much at stake in football today,and it wouldn’t take any longer than the rows and pushing and shoving that goes on when a red card or penalty is given.

  45. avenell says:

    Stringfellow Hawk.. you are very welcome my friend I have read some of your comments on other sites and I have been very impressed.

  46. kelsey says:

    all our questions about the team being weaker in quality than for years,do revolve around money and the development is a major issue at the moment.

    AA it’s a bit like russian roulette

  47. Thank you, avenell.

    You and others on here ( and on wrighty’s blog ) have totally reinforced my view that the majority of gooners do not just buy the sun and make uneducated guestimates to our financial situation.

    It’s not good, but we have the best man possible at the helm to help us through to much grander times.

    They will come, of that i have no doubt.

  48. Rasputin says:

    For once, I had to agree with Ian Wright on the radio the other day when he said that it would be good and in no way detrimental to the club if they just made a definitive statement (preferably by the anonymous Ivan Gazidis) regarding the finances and funds available to buy players. This could only have a positive effect because people are just forming their own conclusions anyway and usually it doesn’t show our club in a favourable light. Too many people who should know better (PHW is the worst) open their mouths to the press without considering the consequences. Although I desperately want us to sign new players, I’d actually be happier than I feel now if they explained why it is not possible – at least I’d feel I could trust those in charge of OUR club again.

  49. avenell says:

    One of the reasons for setting this site up stringfellow, was so we can all have a chat and a debate together without slagging each other off and calling mr wenger obe names inc the “c” word which is banned.

    If you are interested in our finances I have a link that explains a few bits.

    Some people seem to think that sir alfred mc alpine goes around building stadiums on a charity basis.

  50. Rasputin says:

    You don’t have to apologise to me for mentioning the finances avenell (especially on your own site 😉 ). You have made your understanding of the financial situation very clear on many occasions and it hasn’t wavered. I wish I could say the same for the Arsenal board……..

  51. lol, avenell.

    that link would be very nice.

  52. avenell says:

    I have sent you an email with that on stringfellow.

    rasp I know it’s boring but I am no good at english so I have to make up for it with my maths lol..

  53. great, got your mails.

  54. raif says:

    AVENELL mate

    ive just figuerd out how to do somthing. check the side of my Blog. after the RSS feeds 😉

  55. avenell says:

    I have had a quick look .. that’s the nuts mate..
    I’ve just got to cook some food “er indoors” has worked all day.
    Put it on an email if you don’t mind..

  56. avenell says:

    Where the fuck is jonjon tonight? pardon my language..

  57. raif says:

    lol i was thinking were is JonJ myself as it goes.

    ill jot down how to do it for ur blog and send it to you tomorrow if you want Ave?

  58. avenell says:

    I would like that raif… if not i’ll stick you in charge of avenell road for a day.. whoopee lol..

  59. raif says:

    tho the moving Flashing Images are ones i have made my self.

    so just think of it as plain Pictures and so on.

  60. raif says:

    Ave, check them things on the side again when u get a chance i have added some new ones


  61. avenell says:

    Raif, its nita (mrs ave) – He is cooking dinner as I have been at work all day and I have just checked out your side items – don’t think much of the one for the ladies!!! I prefer the one for the boys!!!
    Now I know why ave is up so late every nite. Nita x

  62. avenell says:

    “He’s on his way, he’s on his way arshavins on his way”

  63. raif says:

    hello there Nita. an good evening to you.

    his up late talking to his Online Buddys abouts arsenal all night. nothing beats moaning about ur team to a fellow fan 😉

    also i thought the one for the Ladies was very sexy HAHAHAHA.

    i just figured out how to do that picture on the side stuff. so i was having a Little Joke. 😀

    the real Ladies Picture is yet to be found. i cant Pick out of Fireman or some other hunky uniformd fella

  64. avenell says:

    We are just about to sign a player said to be one of the top 10 players in the world. For under £15 million pounds..
    but we are not a “big” club hahaha c’mon..

  65. avenell says:

    That’s less than a bentley with gascoigne on the back of his shirt.. lol..

  66. peachesgooner says:

    Hey raif

    How are you? Just checked out your ‘one for the girls’, you have to have better taste than that!!!

    Nita – are you still there, hope that man is cooking you something delicious 😉

  67. raif says:

    HAHAHAHA Peaches. 😉

    i new all the girsl will come out after i stuck that picture there. lol

  68. avenell says:

    Hi Peaches – yep he cooked a lovely curry just finished it, only because he is too tight to buy me a takeaway! Nita x

  69. raif says:

    Home Cooked is better and Healthier as well. yum yum

  70. peachesgooner says:

    Lucky you Nita.

    Shall we help raif find a pic for the ladies?

  71. raif says:


    they are sayin on SSN that AA is on a flight over to london as we speak.

    they say he wants to be in London to do his Medical soon as the 2 clubs agree on a Fee

  72. Totally bored with the AA story, only a minor miracle will prevent him becoming the Arsenal no23 before the deadline.

    Moving forward, where do we deploy him? Pair him with RvP or centrally in the Fab role or wide right/left?

    IMO – wide right with vela wide left and nasri in the fab slot.

  73. raif says:

    hahahahaha Peaches. is that a HINT love??

  74. peachesgooner says:

    Good plan stringfellow hawke, as hes not experienced in the premiership I think he should start out on the right and move nasri into the middle with denilson, play vela on the left.

  75. avenell says:

    RvP up front. with Arshavin in the bergkamp roll.

    Nasri, Rosicky and Fabregas in midfield with song or even better alonso or a.n.other sitting in front of the defence..

    let’s play wengerball again. on the deck.

  76. yup, denilson in the holding role sitting back and mopping up.

    whilst nasri,vela,arshavin use their pace and trickery to creat for rvp&badey.

    not the biggest badey fan, never have been.. but i cannot have bender in the first team yet as he is better employed as an impact player.

    not sure he has has that many decent games fromt he start, but always seems to get things moving coming off the bench, including some important goals.

  77. peachesgooner says:

    Raif – its your site, you choose, just giving a helping hand. Freddie in his calvin kleins always held a certain appeal and you know how I feel about thunder thighs campbell 😉

  78. avenell says:

    I’ve had to ban nita now.. all that plastic surgery and extra bumps on there belly’s ..

  79. raif says:

    HAHAHAHA. thunder thighs campbell lol. i can relate to that.

  80. peachesgooner says:

    Oh do we have to have adebayor in the team – gonna be a real girl here and pout – hes so useless at the moment.

    But i agree nikki is much better coming off the bench.

    If only everyone was fit – cesc and thomas and dudu included.

    Actally Arsene did say the other day that dudu isn’t injured anymore just not match fit 😉

  81. Another total agreement from me, ave.

    This bringing in a big man upfront to change up the original style that won us the double double has not worked out too well.

    Long term, RvP & Arshavin could indeed be a wonderful strike pairing.

    Biggest mistak leboss has made in 12 years is not letting badey for anything norf of 20M last summer, to be fair… meelan or whoever else stupid enough to have stumped that up, would more than likely have reported wenger to the fraud squad by now… had he been sold.

    Not a chance we would get anything close to 20M for him now. Complete one season wonder.

  82. peachesgooner says:

    ave – i hope you let nita have a peek?

  83. peaches – that glorious day when cesc, rosicky, eddy, theo et al will be in the first 11 all match fit.

    robin will probably be done by then 😦

  84. peachesgooner says:

    Absolutely agree about ade, to pay him his wage demands to keep him was ludicrous, we’ll never be offered that kind of money for him again – AND HES A WASTE OF SPACE.

    Not totally cos he does do a job worrying defences but he would be more usefull if he could shoot and score a goal now and then.

    Actually more often than now and then would be better,
    once or twice a game would be best 😉

  85. 25% of all league goals he scored last year were against…DERBY

    100% FACT that fooled many a pundit.

  86. avenell says:

    Somewhere in the last few comments was our 2000th comment in our first 2 weeks of running this mickey mouse blog..
    I know about a 1000 were mine but I would like to thank everyone for posting and supporting the project!! 🙂 :).

    nita said she has got me peaches… didn’t you nita?
    ok she quite liked the second one lol.. I must say he wasn’t bad.. 😉

  87. peachesgooner says:

    We do have good times to look forward to and we are unlucky that so many of our star talents are out at the moment.

    Last summer I fantasised with a gooner friend who also blogs of a team that would terrify opponents with their skill and pace and nevermind about defending cos we’d always score loads of goals…..next season maybe 🙂

  88. raif says:

    2000. woop woop woop. up the Road Roadsters

  89. avenell says:

    I must admit mr wenger obe does himself no favours by supporting ade and eboue.. I’m still unsure about song.. in the right team i’m sure he will look better.

  90. peachesgooner says:

    the cheques are in the post then are they?

  91. raif says:

    Eboue should be playing for Newcastle.
    Song should be in the Championship. or maybe Pompy.

  92. avenell says:

    The Czech’s just started training peaches.. 😉

  93. JonJon says:

    hey ppl, heres johnny!!! 😉

    sorry ave, severe laptop problems, got it back online but not sure if it will hold out.now the battery packs gone, it wont effing charge up properly and it keeps draining. must have a virus or something, really annoyed.

  94. Song has acutally impressed me a little in recent games, against Everton he was very solid.

    Eboue should just be a back up to Sagna nothing less, nothing more.

    Hopefully the Vela cameo yesterday will give leboss food for thought, he was not great, but still 5000% more productive than Eboue has been over many games.

    Eboue is a decent right back, but he has no right to be in the final 3rd of the pitch, he has the first touch of a rapist and the vision of stevie wonder.

  95. raif says:

    The Battery must be Dead JonJ. they get so Flat they dont stay on for long even after its had its ful charge,

    and like you said u have it on for ages so it must be on its last legs.

  96. JonJon says:

    mr hawke 😉

  97. Evening JJ, i saw the light 😉

  98. peachesgooner says:

    The thing that upsets me is that I go to every home game now expecting the fabulous football to return.

    I was having a discussion – actually it was a heated argument but I’m a lady – after the game yesterday with a fellow gooner who felt that even the game against the manc scum had been lucky!!!! See how depressed some people are. I know we could have been 2 down early on but we weren’t and the atmosphere was amazing and we won.

  99. JonJon says:

    i keep it on charge all the time raif, so i cant understand why its draining

    if its dead do you mean totally ‘dead’???

    and recharging is pointless???

  100. avenell says:

    I love it when a plan comes together jonjon.. 😉

  101. raif says:

    naa Dead As in wont stay on for long as it used to when you first got it. if it only stays on for somthing silly like 30mins. or a Hour.

  102. JonJon says:

    haha, how??? why??? when???

  103. JonJon says:

    it stays on 5 mins raif max. until now i couldnt even get it on at all. ive been fiddling around all day,

    i got it going at about 4.30 and started writing a comment, i was about to push submit and the bloody thing went off.

  104. raif says:

    and having it on Constant charge ends up killing the battery Bcos when the Battery is Full its still trying to be charged witch ends up draining it.

  105. avenell says:

    My laptop is a mains only laptop anyway.. I never have had any luck with the pieces of shit.

  106. PMSL 🙂

    Have the same issue with my HP laptop, only 18 months old but batt lasts about 20 minutes without the charger in.

  107. JonJon says:

    so ive done it myself??? great. im investing in a new one tomorrow anyway so fudge it.

    im still annoyed about ade, i cant beleive we gave him 80k. what a plonker.

  108. raif says:

    the Bat must be DEAD. or about it be DEAD-DEAD.

    if it aint that it could be the power fuse part from within the laptop its self.

    i have one word for all of you


  110. Badey has not been the same since this time last year, remember all that Samson stuff when he cut his moptop?

  111. JonJon says:

    i meant im investing in a pc tomorrow, shove this laptop business.

    the novelty has worn off, abit like ade. 😉

  112. raif – a desktop would crush my poor thighs.

  113. JonJon says:

    yes ade lost all his powers when the braids were snipped. then he lost even more of his powers this season cos his wallets weighing him down.

    please hurry up dudu.

  114. did RvP & Eddy ever play together?

    2 lefties up top… hmmmm

  115. JonJon says:

    thing is mr hawke, is with dudu and rvp your know your going to get movement which leads to lots of space and your also going to get creativity and a natural goal threat.

    with kinky boots we just get inconsistency, and with ade we get nothing, so for me rvp and dudu have gotta be the pairing if we want to open up defences and score goals like we used to.

    dudu and rvp suit wengerball.ade and nikki dont.

  116. Karim Benzema is the lad who would suit wengerball 🙂

  117. avenell says:

    I not sure about the 2 lefties thing.. no one moans if there are 2 righty’s..
    is it leftism? 🙂

  118. raif says:


    you could get a Desk to go with ur Desktop 😉

  119. JonJon says:

    benzema would be a good signing but we cant afford him.

    if vela would have had more PL experience and Dudu and RvP were not injury doubts at the start of the season, i feel that wenger would of let ade go.

    under the circumstances along with losing flam and pleb, wenger probably felt he had no choice but to keep ade.

    if we get a full season out of rvp, and it looks like a 20+ goal one, and dudu comes back strong. along with good progression of simpson kinkyboots and vela, we might see ade go in the summer. the 80k a week thing was a one year plan. i hope. 😉

  120. peachesgooner says:

    JonJon I think van persie was injured while dudu was playing and then dudu got injured so you’re right thats a partnership that we havn’t seen yet.

    I have to say good night guys cos I’m expected to mummycab at 7 in the morning – looks like I’ll have to dig out the car first. Naaah, i’ll get the boychick to do that i reckon.

    Nite nite all, Andrei’s coming tmoro….be excited 😉

  121. avenell says:

    Where did peaches go?.. and where was our rico today?
    Nita want’s to do a girls hour once a week… eh.

  122. JonJon says:

    walcotts a striker by trade too so im hoping im right with my theory, we’ll be lucky to get 15mil for him now but hes got a few years left on his contract so we could demand a few bob more. 😉

  123. JonJon says:

    nighty night peaches.

  124. avenell says:

    take that last comment back then.. good nite peaches and thanks…

  125. raif says:

    jonj chech my site out mate./

    along the sides lol

  126. JonJon says:

    LMAO raif

    for the guys haha

    for the girls hahaha

    at the emirates you look like your ready for a ruck 😉

  127. raif says:

    hahahaha it was raining that day and i was drenched to hell and back

  128. avenell says:

    You have caused enough trouble raif.. I’ve got to go and search for a firemans outfit in the morning.. 😉

  129. raif says:

    hahahahaha just make sure u dont think of me while u have it on ok.

  130. raif says:

    i think the last thing u need is my face poping into ur head hahahahahahahah

  131. avenell says:

    If you are still there stringfellow… where are you based mate?

  132. i’m on the south east london / kent borders and it is teaming it down with snow

  133. raif says:

    hahaha Fireman Sam

    it will be Fireman Ave tomorrow

    or uncle ave as i like to say some times


  134. raif says:

    check ur spam

  135. JonJon says:

    haha lmao

  136. avenell says:

    have you got a season ticket stringfellow or do you get to many games?

  137. raif says:

    its a Blizzard from my window. and im on the 5th floor in a tower block. getting to work is going to be crazy tomorrow

  138. JonJon says:

    im off guys, my laptops flashing at me.

    catch ya tomorrow

  139. avenell says:

    catch you tomorrow jj nite mate…

  140. i went on the list back in summer 94 !!!

    finally got my season ticket for the inaugrual season at the emirates in summer 06 !!!

    so just the 12 years wait… was regualr for the 06/07

    then due to business commitments became a 30/70% games seen to season ticket given to mates/family for 07/08

    and as of this season my brother in law has taken on my ticket, but the option is there for me to take it back this summer dependant on business.

  141. raif says:


  142. raif says:

    Night JonJ. take it easy mate.

    i think ill get a move on aswell come to think fo it.

    till tomorrow lads 😉

  143. avenell says:

    I went to just about every home game in the eighties and late seventies.. then I started up my own buisness in “91” so I had little money and couldn’t ever get a ticket.
    I live in cornwall now so it costs like £300 a game now so I don’t get to see many.

    Raif are you a season?

  144. avenell says:

    cheers stringfellow.. I hope it’s not too mad.. but supporting arsenal is allowed to be fun.. nite mate.

  145. raif says:

    yep i am a season Ave. me and my dad have been season ticket holders for more then 10 years. but the last 4 season i didnt go as i couldnt get the finances together so my dads mates had it till this season me and my dad went halfs on one of the tickets and my cousin got my dads ticket.

  146. avenell says:

    oops nite raif.. 😉

  147. avenell says:

    I never understood season tickets .. I just turned up paid a quid and went in.. during the war lol..

    g/nite guys and thaaaaaaaaanks!! 🙂

  148. raif says:

    night Ave,, take it easy pal

  149. peachesgooner says:


    Anyone here?

    Why would AA fly to london on the off chance that there was a deal with Arsenal and then fly home before the deadline closes.

    I’m afraid I don’t believe SSN know what they’re talking about – what a wind up!

  150. avenell says:

    Morning peaches..
    Things are looking pretty hopeful in the AA affair. what are the chances off another too?
    How’s the snow, I suppose you get a day off?

  151. avenell says:

    They might extend the deadline of the window..
    more pain!!!

    Man U probably want to buy someone and the FA want to help them out a little.

  152. peachesgooner says:

    The game tomorrow is cancelled. Can’t imagine when they’ll re-schedule it!!!!!

    Should have finished the job last week

  153. peachesgooner says:

    The snow is very beautiful as always, but I’m gonna have to dig my car out soon and move it up the road. I live in the middle of a dip and I know from experience that tmoro I won’t be able to get up the road either way.

    You could be right about man u and the deadline 😉

    Did you get snow too?

  154. avenell says:

    There is no snow here peaches, just a cold bright day.

    This arshavin deal isn’t over, it’s just a game of bottle.
    arsene has already started to ready arshavin to the arsenal fans by saying don’t expect too much from him he is not a instant saviour.
    The bit where he said it doesn’t matter if he signs or not is a message to zenit and arshavin’s agent.

  155. raif says:

    hello Roadsters.

    its a blizzard out there and im getting hassled on the phone by people to pay my bill.

    looks like some people made it work then. Wankers

  156. avenell says:

    Hi raif..

    You obviously are not at work today..

  157. raif says:

    yep lol

    i couldnt make it in as there was no buses or anything.

  158. avenell says:

    What is mr arsene wenger obe up to?

    I hope he got his merc out okay, and gets his ass up to shenley..

  159. raif says:

    well whatever Mr Arsene Wenger is up i hope its trying to sign some tallent. and sitting at home watching Old football video tapes of kids he Almost signd

  160. avenell says:

    There is going to be some angry gooners out there if we sign no one.. :mrgreen:

    Why are the spuds resigning all the players that wasn’t good enough over the last 2 or 3 years.. at least we are not as bad as them.. that’s what changing your manager every year does fo you.. haha

  161. raif says:

    yeah me aswell. im going to be mega pissed if mr Arsene Wenger dont make no signings

  162. avenell says:

    I don’t know why they need the transfer window to last a month.
    I have just been watching SSN and it seems like all the deals could be done over 2 days.
    It’s just a giant wind up!

  163. raif – these phone calls you recieve… are they from credit card or loand companies?

  164. raif says:


    its was basically a company calling on behalf of 02 as i oue them money 🙂

  165. ok cool, if you ever need to have any credit cards or unsecured loans legally reduced or completely written off.. give me a shout 😉

  166. raif says:

    Nice one pal

    ill remember that 😉

  167. avenell says:

    The transfer deadline is extended but only if the player cannot make the medical.
    No excuses for arshavin.

    Hi stringfellow by the way.. 🙂

  168. afternoon, ave.

    in complete bewilderment here reading some of the other blogs.. still blaming wenger for it not going through.

    zenit have clearly said arsenal wont make the 15m up front… WHAT HAS THAT TO DO WITH WENGER?

    the board approve funds FFS

  169. kelsey says:

    Afternoon all,

    What’s the verdict ? All I know is if DD was still here the deal would have been wrapped up by the first few days of January,or we would have moved on.

    Does this new C.O. actually exist,no one has heard a dickie from him.

    My gut feeling is that there is 90 million but the board want to keep it in reserve,until more or all flats are sold,not just deposits,and they are committed to the Queensbury Road project (tied in with Islington Council agreement when permission to build the stadium was given.)

  170. avenell says:

    The ones that make me laugh the most are the championship manager ones who say. “why don’t we just pay the extra £3 mill”… or “I’d buy him for £5 mill” as if the monies are coming out of there pocket..

    I asked this question a few times but got no answer..

    If Arshavin is so cheap at £12 mill plus add ons or £15 mill … why are we the only club interested?

    I’ve got to nip out and do the school run as we have just had a bit of snow.. lol

  171. avenell says:

    HI Kelsey.. there is £93 million pounds .. but we owe £145 million in may.. that is a fact!

  172. raif says:

    is that 93 mill put aside to what we must pay? with what ever else in the bank to do what ever else?

  173. JonJon says:

    hi guys

    raif the 93mil is what we already have, thats all of it, but we need to find the rest at the end of the season, which i presume will come from what we make this season with all the tv, CL, PL, stadium money.

    we’ll make about 40mil to put with the 90 so we should be ok, providing we dont buy anyone!!!!! 😦

    if we do, we’ll have to sell someone in summer or else it will have to come out of the boards pocket, and we know they wont do that!!! 😦

  174. raif says:

    hmmm thats true..

    at least if we do sell we got wood to cut in the likes of Eboue, Song, Ade Diaby, Gallas

  175. avenell says:

    Alright jonjon? new computer?

  176. JonJon says:

    no im back at work mate, haha

    thats likely raif, if we do buy now, wenger will balance the books somehow, but he wont be able to do it until july when the window opens again, we need the money by may, we had an option to extend the loan, but the back must of rejected it cos of the current financial climate.

    the only way someone is coming in now is if someone else leaves now and wenger has already said noones leaving

    dont be surprised if nothing happend tonight. 😦

  177. kelsey says:

    I will have a little wager that the board will sell sooner than later,if they want to compete.Ethically,I think football money has gone mad,but the arabs are coming.Someone questioned me about the fact that the oil money will run out in 10 years(by refereing to Wikpedia as a source) and the arabs see football,a global product being one of the ways to put their stamp on western society.I think Kroenke,who has a sports background will be the man.

  178. rico01 says:

    hello 🙂

  179. avenell says:

    Out of all the people in line to takeover arsenal at the moment. I would go for the yank..
    The only club that seems to had had real success and look secure is villa, there guy learner seems to have a similar background to kroenke.

    I’d still like us to be self funding out of principle though..

  180. avenell says:

    Ah… rico on ice.. 🙂 hi.

  181. kelsey says:

    hello rico 🙂

    still got 5 dogs plus the visitor(the pedigree greyhound baby)Keeps trying to kiss me. 🙂

  182. rico01 says:

    I really dont mind now if we sell the club, the board have been disgraceful, lies lies and more lies, Arsene has not been allowed the speak honestly and has not been able to buy the players needed imho – but i also hope its to Stan the man, and not usumanov..

    Keane confirmed a Spud again

  183. rico01 says:

    i did hear that greyhounds weren’t fussy kelsey 😉

  184. avenell says:

    I’m not sure about the board telling lies… I feel it is different directors having different opinions on our finances.
    mr wenger obe has a degree in economics he is fully aware of what is going on.

    It’s like if you have a ten pound note in your pocket, but at the end of the week you owe it to your mate.

    have you got a tenner?

  185. raif says:


  186. rico01 says:

    avd – i say that because they keep saying we can spend 25M on a player if AW wants, but we dont have the money… 😦

    And yes ave, until i hand over the debt i owe, which of course i would 😉

  187. rico01 says:

    avd = ave, woops, sorry ave

  188. avenell says:

    no probs rico.. 😉

    The old 4×4 comes in handy.today eh?

  189. rico01 says:

    see, you all go again when i appear…. catch you later, got to soon go out in the snow…. 😦

  190. rico01 says:

    ave – it sure does, hope all is ok with you all in the back of beyond 😉

  191. avenell says:

    We have had a bit of snow this afternoon but nothing like london..

    I need to get down the coop to get the champers in.. ok then the red stripe. 🙂

  192. raif says:

    How coul the scum buy Kean for 15 mill? his 30 years of age.

    what a waste lol

  193. avenell says:

    They need to buy out of relegation. They are desperate and they need a player who can fit in today.

  194. raif says:

    ahh yeah that does makes sense

  195. Rasputin says:

    Hi Roadsters,

    What a day. I’ve been snowed in and coudn’t get to work which has meant that I’ve had nothing to occupy my time except the torture of the interminable AA saga. Geoff says the deals done – I won’t believe it until officially posted on the Arsenal site.

    Raif – you’re a git for getting my hopes up on Flamini today – I’d have almost preferred that to AA

  196. avenell says:

    And the spuds might get points deducted.. lets’s hope robbie’s shooting boots are left oop norf ..

  197. avenell says:

    Rasp…. have faith.

  198. raif says:


    hahahaha sorry mate. i couldnt halp it. i love a good wind up 😉

  199. Unveiled in Arsenal Colours tommorow according to Shitanta News.

  200. avenell says:

    He will get his No 10 in the summer I wouldn’t rush out and buy a shirt..

  201. Rasputin says:

    Raif 😉 I’ll get you back!!!

    The worst thing I heard Alan ‘elbows’ Shearer say was in his early days as a pundit summarising on an Arsenal game where once again we’d been kicked off the park with no protection from the ref as usual. “Ah, that’s it” he said “If you let Arsenal play football, they’ll murder you”….So sorry Alan, why didn’t anyone tell us we were playing all-in-wrestling crossed with kickboxing! It still makes my blood boil when I imagine his smug face grinning at the brilliance of his observation.

  202. avenell says:

    Would have been nice to have unveiled him at the game tomorrow night, the last time I remember that happening was RvP with his rupert the bear trousers. lol.

  203. kelsey says:

    sky are making an MGM blockbuster out of it.on-off-on-off. Latest off,but maybe still a chance.

  204. raif says:

    Deal off what a load of cluster fuck

  205. Rasputin says:

    They are saying the deal is def OFF on LG?????

  206. avenell says:

    I hoping that the earlier stories are just coming up again. It’s hard to follow the order.

  207. kelsey says:

    zenith are putting all the emphasis on arshavih giving his share to them.how can a deal be done,paperwork received,medical okay and then the player holds up the deal.This is laughable.

    This is from Reuters Agency

  208. avenell says:

    Zenits manager has said he is an arsenal player, like ras said you cannot believe anything until arsenal.con say it’s done.

  209. Rasputin says:

    We helped Merida financially in a dispute with his former club – we should do the same with AA. Usamov would help out if he was really an Arsenal fan.

  210. avenell says:

    I think we just paid the fine that UEFA gave to merida for breaking his barca contract.

    SSN still think the deal is on.

  211. Rasputin says:

    Geoff has just said that he “bets Dein and his russian mate are behind this” We’re all going crazy it seems…….

  212. Big Raddy says:

    I am SO bored with this transfer crap. We will never hear the truth and we certainly will never buy another player in this way.

    Real bought Huntelaar before the window – why can’t we do something like that ? Instead we deal with a club that sells their player like a Turkish Carpet salesman.

    It must frustrate the hell out of AW.

  213. avenell says:

    Arsenal just offered £12 million plus £3 million in bonuses, they offered it a month ago and haven’t changed there stance.
    All this crap comes from the russians it’s not arsenals fault, zenit are a disgrace.
    They think they are running some sort of market stall.

  214. Rico01 says:

    ave – i agree, this is zenit trying to get the last word, and cheese off AA

  215. avenell says:

    My thoughts are that the deal has been done, but zenit and arshavin are going to argue over the signing on loyalty bonus thing in court at a later date.

  216. Zenit screwed up bigtime, they paid 30M for Danny as a replacement for AA last summer, hoping they would recoup most of that from some mug club.

    This is totally nothing to do with wenger or anybody else at arsenal.

    DD&jabba conspiracy hey? lol, no accounting for nutters with agendas out there.

  217. Big Raddy says:

    The person I am most pissed of with is Me. Why the hell have I been following this bullshit saga so intently ?

    I am going to watch a programme about wildebeest migration. Anything to stop this . Anything

  218. avenell says:

    I don’t go a lot on DD mr stringfellow. In 1993 he owned 43% of arsenal then as the shares went up flogged them off, he then tries to get into bed with anyone who can give him his power back.
    The funny bit is, the best thing he did was get mr wenger obe in, now half the fans want mr wenger obe out but they still think the sun shines out of DD arse.

  219. raif says:

    not long now till wenger/arsenal makes a Statment.

  220. been trying to get a wordpress account opened since last night, not got my activation email yet, been 24 hours.

    and they have no help or support email address, totally bizzare!!!

  221. raif says:

    have a looked in ur Junk Mail see if its in there

  222. defo not in there.

    checked they got the right email etc etc

    been trying to email them for support but they are pretty much useless in listing any kind of email contact.

  223. raif says:

    Maybe it could be the type of e-mail you are using?

    im using Hotmail and it all went ok.

    im trying to think what else that could be done

  224. avenell says:

    I opened mine up about 8 months ago and I cannot remember the problems.
    Nita reckons my email came through in a couple of hours.
    jonjon might know, he only opened his one up about december time I think.

  225. raif says:

    mine was December time aswell and i had no problems really.

    the only problem i had was things like avatars and profile detials took 40 mins to change or update

  226. avenell says:

    Stringfellow. this is there support e mail.


  227. JonJon says:

    guys, can you beleives it

    SH, mine took 4 days to come through,

    apparently weve signed him, the medicals been done blah blah blah, but the fa have said theyve had that many applications tonight we will have to wait until tomorrow b4 we can officially announce him.

  228. avenell says:

    Evening jonjon. sky turned today into a right old soap opera. I bet the deal went through as smooth as silk really.
    I’ve not seen mr wenger obe, if he had a smirk it means we have signed more than one and he has beat the media. 🙂

  229. raif says:

    its all crap.

    they couldnt agree on the fee and the FA have been kin enough to give us more time. thats what i think.

    any ways guys im off

  230. JonJon says:

    hi raif

    bye raif. 😉

    im confused ave, how can we announce him tomorrow, the deadlines gone.

    unless we are keeping hush hush

    ive read we got him for 10 million rising to 12???

  231. avenell says:

    see you raif..

    arsenal won’t announce it until it is cleared by the premier league jj, then it’s proper official.

    The deadline is to get the paperwork to the FA then it has to be checked.

    they don’t act like the spuds do and floppyface announces it for them.
    I haven’t read that, but I cannot see it.

  232. cheers jon, had a feeling it may take a while to get my account with them.

    i have a funny feeling that advocaat’s comment “they got a superb player for a ridiculous price” could very well mean we did indeed knock the russkis 🙂

    10M upfront, pmsl.

  233. what the hell is going on down the 7 ugly sisters?

    spuds have sold and bought back half the team inside 4 months for a loss and are in a massive relegation struggle, total poetry in motion.

    massive believer of karma, the day honest (lol) arry turned up there was the day i honestly felt they could get taken down.

    the guy is satan.

  234. avenell says:

    Is there any truth in the rumour that they could also be docked points for fielding palacios when he was on a one match ban?

    the spuds have spent there stadium money trying to stay in the premiership. one fan on SSN even warned man u that they were coming after berbatov.. lol…

  235. stringfellowhawke says:

    Only the spuds, hahahahaha.

    More Honest Arry karma.

  236. avenell says:

    Sorry about that stringfellow .. wordpress chucked you into moderation, you must of changed something..
    I’ll be glad when you join and we can help you get a smert new avatar ID..
    You look like the tiles in my bathroom at the minute. 😉

  237. avenell says:

    Have you joined wordpress then me old mucker?

  238. Yup, finally got in.

    A lot cleaner than blogspot thats for sure.

  239. avenell says:

    You have your avatar has just changed..
    I don’t like to ask but as it is quite small .. who is it? lol.

  240. Stringfellow himself 😉

  241. Rasputin says:

    OK roadsters,

    I can finally come clean – I’m surprised none of you worked it out from my Russian name. I am, in fact, Andrei Arshavin. I took a considerable pay cut to come and play for you miserable moaning b******ds, so you’d better f****ng cheer up now and sing your hearts out at games because from this point forward the Arsenal is heading back to the top!!!!! (cheers, confetti, fireworks, the 1812)

  242. peachesgooner says:

    Hey rasp – did you see someone suggested your song as a chant for arshavin earlier on lg

  243. 3rd will do this year, FA Cup success and a good champs league run.

    fancy villa to implode from late feb/early march onwards.

    and either liverpool or chelski to stutter for the rest of the season.

  244. Rasputin says:

    I was flattered Peaches, not only Russia’s greatest love machine, but greatest footballer too 😉

  245. peachesgooner says:

    Have you been keeping up with everything today?

    Can I tell you about my snowman?

  246. peachesgooner says:

    Your time has come rasputin, don’t let us down

  247. Rasputin says:

    One snowman says to the other “can you smell carrots?”

  248. avenell says:

    Hi rasp how’s your faith now?
    I was thinking you was artics greatest love machine.. I just didn’t realize.. 🙂

    You are a handsome dude mr stringfellow.. I thought it was the super swede at first. 🙂

  249. peachesgooner says:


  250. Rasputin says:

    I’ve been going bloody berserk today – correct me if I’m wrong, but even now it’s not been officially announced that I’m an Arsenal player.

    We have much bigger snowmen than yours in Russia Peaches – particularly round Chernobyl (sorry, bad taste)

  251. Rasputin says:

    That looks nothing like Peter Stringfellow – where’s the mullet?

  252. Rasputin says:

    Peaches – surely the ‘why’ wasn’t in response to my snowman joke?

  253. Super swede taking over from beckam as the hearthrob in MLS now.

    Plays for Seattle.

    We love you freeeedie cos you got red hair etc etc etc

  254. peachesgooner says:

    I’m afraid there is still a fair amount of red-tape to plough through before you can be unveiled. Can you say if anyone else is joining you – there are rumours of another……

    Mr Wenger seems pleased with his dealings today, I can’t see why, hes had ages to sort your money out.

    Have you paid Zenit what they want?

  255. avenell says:

    “er no” I sort of meant the original mr limpar..
    showing my age a bit there mr stringfellow.. 🙂

  256. peachesgooner says:

    No rasp, the why was to do with the snowman and smelling carrots…… you didn’t finish your story

  257. Rasputin says:

    Duuurrrr….its a joke that I’m about to kill by explaining…..one snowman says to the other…can you smell carrots…..what are snowmens noses traditionally made of???????/

  258. peachesgooner says:


  259. Rasputin says:

    Hi avenell,

    I didn’t mean to come across as a DD lover earlier – I’m not. I just think it is a great shame he had that aberration, sold his shares and jumped into bed with a less desirable russian than myself. Up to that point, everything was going reasonably well don’t you think?

  260. limpar?????

    He had black hair, lol !!!

    What a player he was, never had the pleasure of watching him play live, but was defo my fave gunner after smudger and before wrighty 🙂

  261. Rasputin says:

    Mind you, I am a DD lover when it comes to the ladies! 😆

  262. was thinking the same, rasp , lol

  263. Rasputin says:

    Hi Stringfellow – where are you based if you don’t mind me asking?

  264. london/kent borders – Bexleyheath

  265. avenell says:

    My best memory of limpar was we was all standing at the clock end, waiting for the queues to die down a bit. When this bloke walks up to us in a suit, you know a face but you sort of don’t reconize someone when they are out of the normal clothes you see them in.
    Well you can guess the rest.. top bloke.

  266. Rasputin says:

    Oh, I thought you might be across the pond with the septics going by your knowledge of ‘soccer’. We definitely sold Freddie at the right time. I don’t think he was himself for the last two seasons with us, but when he and Pires were at their peak we were awesome!

  267. avenell says:

    Rasputin you don’t have to say sorry.. your opinion is all yours. we need a few more debates on here anyway.

  268. Yes agreed, ave.

    We should all express our own views on here, would be impossible to all agree, all the time.

    Good healthy debate is productive.

  269. Rasputin says:

    ‘Arry used to buy all our old castoffs – now he buys all totnums old castoffs…….haha, I bet he’s delighted to inherit the Bentley

    What do you guys think of my avatar – its what a beautiful russian shotputter looks like through the bottom of a vodka glass after I’ve had a few

  270. avenell says:

    It depends on how much you paid for the avatar. If it came through your avatar youth system it is fine, but I wouldn’t pay a lot of money for it 🙂

  271. Rasputin says:

    I’m always happy to chip in with a controversial post if you want avenell!

    Did you get a chance to see the slo-mo of the Alonso/Lampard challenge…. really nasty, if anyone should have got a red it should have been Alonso. I reckin the lamps red will be overturned anyway.

    I agree with Stringvest 😉 , either chels or pool will slip up and we could finish as high as third. At the moment, chelski look the weakest of the top four.

  272. Agree, i would favour chelski to slip up and be the real ones to battle vanilla for 4th.

    What a seaosn that could be, spuds relegated and roman selling up at chelski after they miss out on the champs league, totally pmsl.

  273. avenell says:

    I just want honest opinion Rasp, like mr stringfellow says we need a healthy debate.
    i’m just laughing at the spuds £15 millin for defoe , then he breaks his foot in training and out for 10 weeks.
    should make the last 5 games of the season but he won’t be match fit. haha 🙂 🙂

  274. peachesgooner says:

    How appalling is it that the fa has decided not to punish Bosingwa for his unprovoked kick

  275. ok thats me over & out for today, mrs hawke would like me to “turn that bloody laptop OFF”

    night chaps.

  276. avenell says:

    adding to that .. no not yet rasp SSN has done my head in today as it is. I heard them talking about how it was alonso’s fault.

  277. avenell says:

    cheers stringfellow . nite.

  278. avenell says:

    Peaches what about SWP? I suppose he got off too..

  279. Rasputin says:

    On a serious note ave, my experience of LG has been that there are some debaters (mass debaters!) who just want to beat you over the head with their opinion and will never open their minds to consider another’s point – and I have ended up falling out with them because their main concern is to prove how clever they are and not to seriously discuss the Arsenal. I don’t like arrogance I’m afraid, but it does lead to lively debate. As you know, I am into chinese stuff and they have a lot of great sayings…..from one candle you can light a thousand others and yet the first is not diminished.

  280. peachesgooner says:

    I didn’t see anything about SWP

  281. Rasputin says:

    Yes Peaches – there certainly seem to be double standards when it comes to red cards and reviewing incidents the ref hasn’t seen. I thought any physical attack that didn’t involve the ball was an automatic red. Bosingua should have gone and so should SWP and so should Fellaini for blatently elbowing another player in the face.

  282. avenell says:

    peaches .. sorry that was misleading, I just wondered if they even tried to caution SWP for that blatent kick in retaliation the other day.
    rasputin. LG is a subject that I am avoiding. but I know they had a very good day today.

  283. peachesgooner says:

    Chavs are gonna appeal the red card for fat frank – it’ll probably be rescinded (is that how you spell that?)

  284. avenell says:

    It’s like the bermuda triangle on here sometimes..

    Don’t ask me about spelling peaches I’m sure you are far better than me. 😉

  285. peachesgooner says:

    Thought rasp was still around – he knows about spelling.

    Did you hear rumours about anyone else coming too ave? That would be good wouldn’t it – to wake up tmoro and find there was more than arshavin. Oh I’m such an optimist 🙄

  286. avenell says:

    I didn’t see how big mr wengers smirk was. he loves to put one over on the press.
    I am assuming it is bed time now, bit cold up there but never mind, I will hopfully chat with you all tomorrow.
    goodnight peaches and rasputin if you are reading. x That’s peaches x. sorry AA. AKA. (rasputin) a.

  287. peachesgooner says:

    Go to bed ave – talk to you tmoro, nite nite rasp xxx

  288. rico01 says:

    Morning All, bloomin chilly again but no more snow here thankfully. So we hear today if the FA will allow the signing – I wont be happy until the official announcement dispite all the papers saying its done etc….

    Sadly though, I think we missed an opportunity to get a good midfielder on loan for the rest of the season, and I would still give thought to Appiah – I am not going to go on about Song and Eboue, but right now we need a stronger, quicker player in the middle. Diaby is now out for a while I think.

    Also, I would rather see Merida be given a chance to play that ‘Cesc’ role, and play JD alongside him.

    Finally, there is a lot a rumblings about our injured players, I think we will see them all have some involvement by the end of the month..

    Theo, Rosicky and Dudu – with Cesc back in March.

    That all makes the future seem a little brighter

  289. rico01 says:


  290. Rasputin says:

    Morning rico – are they ignoring you again?….it happens to me all the time 😉

  291. Big Raddy says:

    Morning Rico. Lazy Buggers ? I have been up since 6 (your time :-)).

    Have done all my homework, tidied the apartment, been to the gym (just for a coffe !). and written on LG.

    Is today Groundhog Day ?

  292. rico01 says:

    Morning Raddy, Rasp – Raddy, I have been up since 6, your time 😉

    I have done the chicken, taken the better half to work, fed the piggies, done the ironing, washing and cleared the snow again!!! Ok, I havent done all the irioning, and just teasing 😳

    Oh, and been on LG too

  293. rico01 says:

    Rasp – you could get a complex couldn’t you, soon as i post, the site clears, maybe i should change my soap 😉

  294. Big Raddy says:

    Ooops, it was yesterday….

  295. kelsey says:

    Morning all,

    OK clever clogs,I got up at 4.45 but I won’t tell you what I did.

    I see AA is reportedly getting 7oK a week anyone heard different.Ade on 80K ummm 🙂

  296. kelsey says:

    Apparently AA will play right back if Sagna is not fit.”The baby faced Russian Assasin” has a nice ring to it.

  297. Big Raddy says:

    But Rico, you are a woman. We expect you to be do all that.

    It’s not so easy for us simple men who can’t multi-task !

  298. rico01 says:

    You oldies but goodies – are buggers 😉

    And like men always do, have the last word ! 😆

  299. Big Raddy says:

    Morning Kelsey.

    If Sagna plays RM instead of EE, I am happy with that !

  300. avenell says:

    Morning all… I’ve only been up half an hour and we have got snow everywhere. Nita has lived here for 19 years and has never seen anything like it.

  301. rico01 says:

    And kelsey – what were you doing at 4.45, and is that spanish or uk time – top of the morning to you by the way….

  302. rico01 says:

    Morning ave – you lazy ol’ devil, you should be up clearing the path, scraping the car, and looking after Nita – bet she was left to do it all, you know, as we women are expected too 😉

  303. avenell says:

    it’s okay rico, schools been cancelled, luckily nita’s bruv lives opposite the school and phoned when he saw the sign. (he’s also handy for paking when we are late). where she works is closed too so she can help me do my work (she will do most I can be on here lol).

  304. rico01 says:

    sounds like you are in for a good old lazy day ave, make the most of it, and not to much sledging and snowball fighting

  305. kelsey says:

    spanish time.not what you think.Doing the nightshift for the doggies to go to the ablutions,especially old Rocky he has a weak bladder,bless him.

  306. Rasputin says:

    Hi avenell,

    What is your prediction as to AA’s involvement against the old foe on sunday? I’d like to think he’d be on the bench at the very least, but ol’ cautious will probably say he’s not match fit and play him in a reserve game or two first.

  307. rico01 says:

    kelsey, i was thinking nothing of the sort i can assure you 😉 other than his weak bladder, is the old boy doing ok still kelsey?

    They are all worth it though, eh

    Time out for me, womans work is never done 😉

    Catch you all a little later

    Rasp – throw him in at the deep end, give the spuds something to worry about…. 😉

  308. avenell says:

    rasp.. I think as you say knowing mr wenger obe he will sit him on the bench, I doubt if he will even get a run out he will just be getting used to how the team prepare fo matchdays.
    boring I know.

  309. avenell says:

    see you soon rico.

  310. kelsey says:

    If DD was still here,we would have wrapped this up 4 weeks ago,and he would be fit to play on Sunday.By the way where is the mysterious new C.O.

    rico he’s alright plodding along.He looks like frank bruno and a frog combined.

  311. rico01 says:

    I am terrible, I cant do anything until i know AA is confirmed, what a usless old twit i am..

    kelsey, that sounds quite sweet, nothing wrong with Frank 😉

    Zenit have been the stumbling block kelsey, always wanting just that little bit more

  312. avenell says:

    Does anyone have any idea of any times for an announcement about arsh?

  313. kelsey says:

    I believe 2.00 p.m. London time.

  314. avenell says:

    Thanks kelsey… Any sign of snow in spain?

  315. Afternoon ladies and gents.

    My Wenger tribute blog is finally read to rock & roll.


    I hope to write some stuff soon, with consent, following conversations about our financial situation with somebody who is an arsenal employee.. at a low level, but in the know.

    I do not intend for the blog to become a regular hang out in terms of comments, this place is just right for that.

  316. kelsey says:

    Well actually we have the Sierra Nevada one hour north of Marbella and one can ski practically all year round and in the summer months literally drive down to the coast and swim in the sea.

    We can see the snow peaked mountains in the distance.

  317. avenell says:

    Of course you do I forgot about that. A freind of mine his family have a big Villa near there somewhere, they run a spanish property buisness.
    I haven’t seen him recently but from what I can make out it has all slowed down over there.

  318. rico01 says:

    Antone else starting to have a little bit of a worry ??

  319. no sign of a press conference?

  320. avenell says:

    Afternoon Stringfellow. as you know I had a quick look and I was impressed with the “first shoots” of your blog.
    I trust we can support each other as we are running 2 different types of blog anyway.

  321. avenell says:

    kelsey says 2 o’clock, I’m happy with that. I don’t know where he got it from though because I haven’t seen it anywhere else.

  322. total 100% support from me, ave.

    as i say, i don’t want my blog to be a hangout, i like the characters on here, and i will direct decent open minded gooners in this direction for daily banter.

    my blog will merely serve as an outlet for some of my views.

    it may only get updated weekly or whenever i have new views/material.

  323. not sure if you have had a peek today, ave.

    but i have expanded the opening post and embedded a superb youtube vid 🙂

  324. avenell says:

    I will have a look stringfellow.
    I just stuck you in our blogroll, for good or for bad. 😉

  325. cheers, ave.

    you were the first in my blogroll, even added my own blog, no option anywhere to remove myself or add blogs that are not wordpress like wrighty7??

  326. avenell says:

    Mr stringfellow…if you go into your dashboard, go to your links.
    put in the name and paste in the URL.
    That’s about all I know at the momment, I’m going to freshen the apperance of this up soon..
    check out raif’s cellblog 79. lol.

  327. thanks.

    blimey, raif has been busy.

  328. avenell says:

    Yea raif is a talent.. check out his you tube stuff as well.
    shyness isn’t one of the problems he suffers with.. 🙂

  329. avenell says:

    I hope mr wenger pulls this one off soooooo many people will be sick.. lol.


  330. rico01 says:

    Not me ave – i would be pleased 🙂

  331. avenell says:

    You know what I mean rico. 😉

    I thought you was of out for the day. I’m just waiting to post.
    c’mon arsenal/PL say something!

  332. I like stepapp as a player, exactly what we need in the middle, but would be mega surprised if we did get him.

    Surely wenger would have had him train with us for a month if he really wanted to test out his fitness.

  333. rico01 says:

    I had to compromise ave – ironing and laptop, or SSN’s and laptop, and no ironing – i opted for the latter 😉

  334. avenell says:

    The other problem with appiah, and indeed arhavin is the lack of height in the team.
    One of the reasons for our poor record at corners, for and against.
    A few years ago it was like all 6 footers only Freddie was a “normal size” player.

  335. true, many seem to always forget that even super bob was 6ft1.

  336. avenell says:

    Right I had better get a bit of work done.. see you all in a bit.. (when we have our new no 23).

  337. avenell says:

    There is a few sites saying the arshavin transfer is 50/50.
    If it did go wrong couldn’t we just loan him for four months, or are loan deals shut now too?

  338. avenell says:

    Yip hoo bloody rah..

  339. raif says:

    deal done and Number 23 Shirt,

    whos had the number 23 shirt in the past for us??

  340. avenell says:

    Hi Raif.. er Campball, Vivas I’m not sure.

  341. raif says:

    Mr Arsene Wenger will decide if his fit enough for the Spuds game on Friday.

  342. raif says:

    he is a GUNER

    Arshavin is a GUNER now

  343. JonJon says:

    hi guys, good news i see,

    arshavins interview was ok, he speaks decent english, he’ll learn the rest quickly if he already has the basics

    i dont think he’ll be fit for the spuds but a good signing nonetheless

    he said hes been a gooner for some time?? and ive also heard he paid for a private jet to bring him to london, took a pay cut to join us, and paid zenit 2mil to leave out of his own pocket to secure the move,

    doesnt sound like a mercenary to me, the signs are good

    the force is strong with this one.

  344. raif says:

    Funny you should say that JonJ mate 😉

    keep refreshing my blog for what im on about lol

  345. raif says:

    in about 10 mins time

  346. avenell says:

    NEW POST guys I have had a nightmre!!!!

  347. thanks for the kind comments on the new blog guys, much appreciated.

  348. avenell says:

    mr stringfellow we have opened a new post we are over there .. I hope.. 🙂
    go to the links on the right>>>>>>> the AA one>>>>>>
