Let’s Get Mad, Not Even!


Today is or used to be the best day of the year to be a Gooner. Back in the day of Thierry, Dennis and Bobby we knew we would beat the Spud’s. They used to try to win but deep down there was a mental block and they just could not.

But now we have gone back to the Georgie Graham days when  it was tit for tat, honours even.  Recently  the Spuds have been able to make DVD’s of there historic win against our reserves and there greatest triumph a draw. So it’s payback time send the marshlanders back down to where they went in the seventies.

Talking of which ..

Well we can dream, I have a sneaking feeling that we may nick this one 2-0 with a RvP goal and one coming from an unlikly source.  Song or Eboue cult hero’s in the making.

Liverpool and Villa both won so we need this to keep our season alive, it’s better to keep up now than do the chasing later on.

“C’mon you rip roaring reds!! “

    Are we all too tongue-tied to blog?

    My heart is beating awfully fast and theres still an hour and a half to go.

    Had a walk in the part with a season ticket holding scummer this morning, hes not looking forward to it either. Spoke to a cousin who’s not going, he offered me his seat which I politely declined – couldn’t bare to watch it sitting with the scum 🙄

    How is everyone?

    ave – thats so funny, that dream of AA – guinea pigs!!! Where is the lady with the guinea pigs? Have you emailed her?

  3. avenell says:

    Hi peaches, I’ve got a confident but a bit apprehensive as always when we play the spuds feeling.
    The phone will have a flat battery should we lose.. 😦

    rico hasn’t been seen for a couple of days, I will see if she sufaces tomorrow, if not I will give her a shout.

  4. afternoon gooners, fancy a 2-1 with arse-shaver doing a reyes off the bench and turning around a 1-0 down to a 2-1 win, against the common denominator.

    mr cudicini.

  5. right i’m off to watch the game with the uncles, cousins and nephews.

    cmon you mighty, mighty ARSENAL

    do us proud !!

    Hi Roadsters – I apologise in advance for the following rant……..

    I predicted that we’d have a man sent off today and EE was the prime candidate. He is now my most hated Arsenal player of all time. He’s a petulant cheat with a very low IQ. The physio’s should run on with a nappy every time he goes down as if he’s been pole-axed. Why we haven’t accepted any offers for him I can’t fathom, but I personally would be overjoyed if he never wears an Arsenal shirt again!

  7. avenell says:

    You carry on ras.. look on the bright side, we have Arshavin, Nasri, Walcott and Rosicky all in front of him soon.
    Eboue could cost us our 4th spot and a lot of money.
    If the ref had of give him that goal it would have all been different.

  8. Rasputin says:

    It would have been different avenell, but IMO he would still be unworthy of the shirt. What I have hated about this season is the withering predictability of team selection and substandard performance.

  9. avenell says:

    I lost it last season with eboue, when he prayed to the ref not to give him a card.
    there is no point defending the team selection but normally a player breaks into the first team and cannot be dropped but this season all the new first choice players have been average and even when he gives Vela or Ramsey a half hour they dissapoint too.
    still better than eboue though 😦

  10. guys – amongst all the anguish of the silly theatrics from the daft ivorian, there was some real pluses to take out.

    to take such a valiant point away to the enemy after playing the majority of the match with 10 men has go to give us a lift.

    i am going to admit it….. i was in complete rapture, almost to the point that it was an almost goal scored celebration when i saw the badey pull up like that, i knew it meant the end for him in this team/club.

    he will be out for a month, and in that time bender will slot in and eduardo will make full match fitness.

    goodbye and god bless badeybayor.

  11. avenell says:

    We must be the only team in the world that is strenghtened when we get a sending off and injuries. lol.

  12. rico01 says:

    Woop Woop – the spuds couldnt beat us with only ten…

    I am not going to mention THAT man’s name, he is petulant, stupid, an idiot who should get docked a few weeks wages – he totally ridiculed the ‘respect’ campaign and acted like a prize pratt!!

    Hello everyone, you been missing the busy one 😉

  13. avenell says:

    Hi rico.. everyone has missed you.. 🙂

    Have you seen our russian new boy yet? 😉

  14. rico01 says:

    ave – saw you link, very good 🙂

    i owe you 50p!!

  15. avenell says:

    I think you can blame eboue for that rico, as soon as ade went off injured AA was warming up and he may of got 20 mins at the end. In eboue’s place.. 😦

    I cannot wait for the cardiff game when is it?

  16. rico01 says:

    Just wanted to say hi, and now i have to go again….

    so hi to Mr Stringfellow, raif, peaches, kelsey, rasp, and if if have missed anyone – then you can beat me later, but i am sorry in advance 😉

    Tomorrow – I will be back to normal, today, i am just a Guinea Pig 🙄

    In a field with a mad Horse 😉

  17. rico01 says:

    not until the 16th i think ave

  18. peachesgooner says:

    Oh no, she flew in and now shes gone. Rico I missed you again. Hope you’re well. Gutted about the game today – bloody Eboue, I’m sure we’d have seen Dudu or even Andre if we hadn’t gone down to 10 men.

    Its gonna be really hard to be supportive if AW plays him again

  19. peachesgooner says:

    Whats going on – that last comment took 7 minutes to send!!!!!

  20. peachesgooner says:

    Ah, but the next one went in seconds – spooky 😉

  21. avenell says:

    It must be a wordpress problem peaches. every other site I use like ebay etc are working fine.
    I even changed to firefox but that sent this site all over the place..

  22. ave, you may have some kind of virus.. have you done a scan?

  23. even more spooky, my post from about 30 mins ago has yet to be posted but the new ones are being posted


  24. ok not posting links.

    therefore, a little heads up to say a new rant has been posted on my blog, click my name.

    and discuss on here.

  25. avenell says:

    firefox says I have used all my URL and won’t redirect me but BT is okay ish.
    We put kaspersky on a couple of weeks ago and have done all the updates I ‘ll give the scan a try though.

  26. avenell says:

    sorry stringfellow they are on now, it sent them into spam .

  27. kaspersky is the business, the best you can get, so thats all ok on the virus front.

    is youtr internet connection ok at the moment?

  28. avenell says:

    We are on a slow connection as we are out in the sticks a bit. We have nailed a baked bean can to the telegraph pole with string to get the broadband in.. lol

  29. avenell says:

    Haha anything but lidl.. what happened to the new avatar?

  30. avenell says:

    It’s very similar.. lol..

  31. avenell says:

    Your new one is on your site, but your old one is on here. This is a more traditional site.. 🙂

  32. peachesgooner says:

    Hey Mr Hawke – I posted on your site 😉

  33. peachesgooner says:

    Someone must have woken up at wordpress, the comments are flying through now

  34. kelsey says:

    Evening all,
    firstly I hope Clichy is Ok,that looked a nasty gash,but he is another one who is not performing as last year.We have real problems at the moment.Bedntner’s first touch is no better than Ade’s,and Denilson though not bad,doesn’t give the drive to the team,in fact no one does except Cesc when fully fit.I thought Almunia,Gallas,sagna and Nasri all did alright,and of course going down to 10 men,made Wenger change things around.However,Spurs are a poor team,and we are definitely a few players short of being where we were a year ago.Forth will be difficult(goal average is also against us) but if it means finishing 5thh and improvements are made and the dead wood are really shipped out then we are not far away.What worries me,is that a man as intelligent as Wenger,who by his own admission,sleeps and lives for football,continuously plays under par players and doesn’t spend money which is available to strengthen the team.We have scored 1 goal in 4 games,confidence must be low,yet an honourable draw today doesn’t help us one way or another.

  35. avenell says:

    Hi kelsey.. things will change when we get our creative players back. Clichy has looked bad because he hasn’t had the midfield to take his passes from him so he has held the ball too long.

    Peaches I cannot see your post on stringfellows blog.. what’s going on? 😦

  36. avenell says:

    Stringfellow check your admin .. peaches is probably in moderation at the moment.

  37. yup sorry peaches, approved !

  38. Big Raddy says:

    I agree Ave. We will improve as the season progresses.

    I thought Nik had a decent game. But we really, really miss Cesc.

    There is no-one in the side who gives the forwards passes to run onto. We play such obvious tactics, and even rubbish like the Totts have few defensive problems against us.

    That said, it was def. a good goal from EE (I never want to see him in the shirt again)

  39. The main thing this side lacks is pace, we broke a couple of times and had no theo or thierry as an outlet.

    RvP is class but very slow for a premiership CF, bendter is even slower.

    Arshavin is quick though 😀

  40. avenell says:

    It was said that RvP was something like the 5th fastest player in the euro’s I don’t know where the fact came from originally but I was surprised.

  41. avenell says:

    hi raddy sorry I didn’t speak.. 😦

  42. avenell says:

    stringfellow are you friends with arsblog and anr, I just noticed links?

  43. lol, there is no way rvp is even 5th fastest at arsenal.

    clichy, sagna, theo, toure, gallas are defo faster than him.

    5th fastest at the euros is somebodys idea of a joke.

  44. i know myles reasonably well (ANR)

    not arsebloggers as well.

  45. avenell says:

    fastest 2 at arsenal are gavin hoyte and ade apparently..
    re: anr do you mean personally or through his site..

  46. avenell says:

    fook me i will call you sir stringfellow now, that’s royalty of the arsenal blog world.. lol

    You shouldn’t be mixing with low life like me.. ‘)

  47. hahaha, i don’t speak to him on a regular basis or anything like that, but i have his personal email and we banter here and there.

    at the moment we are in opposing camps, i got to meet him when he first launched his professor book, since then his views on wenger have slightly changed.

  48. avenell says:

    Does he know about your site? It would be intersting to hear what he has to say on a interactive blog. I have read his blog a few times.

    I don’t read arseblog.. he does very good articles or so kelsey and a few of the others have said in the past, but the comments are quite poor.
    I must admit that I started to read them but was bored after a while.

  49. arseblog is hit and miss for me.

    bit still a darn sight better than all the neuvo gooner blogs who are born out of a love affair with a winning team.

    proper gooners remember the early eighties and appreciate BIG TIME where we are today.

  50. won’t mention the worst of the lot, lol 😉
