Goals, Goals, Must Have Goals.

It was if the kind people at Manchester United who organise the Premier league fixture list at the beginning of the season had anticipated that we would need a bit of a helping hand around this time and gave us an especially kind run of fixtures. It’s not too difficult imagining them thinking: first we will give them West Ham..no, can’t beat them? Ok, don’t fret we will make it easier, Sunderland. No, still can’t beat them? Even easier then, here’s Fulham… still no. Right, last chance, West Brom, yes, 3- 1 well done.

Wenger went from the choosing a team to face Fulham that was the top of everyone’s wish list to a side that I am sure would have caused great concern to many. As the team was read out you could almost hear the knives being sharpened, ready, to tear into a convenient victim should things have gone wrong. I don’t know about you but I go into protective mode at this point. It seems to have the same effect on me as a bee when it feels the hive is under threat, an alarm goes of in my head and the words scream out: Defend at all costs, defend at all costs.

It all started in the school playground; my particular playground was made up of half Arsenal and half spuds. The problem was that the spuds half contained some real big, spiteful, nasty bastards who used take pleasure in mocking us by trying to single out, what they thought was our worst player, and taking the piss the best they could whenever we were within ear shot. Such was the effect it had on me that I have, from that day to this, defended every single lost cause Arsenal player as if my life depended on it.

So, when I saw the line up that included Bendtner, Eboue and Song, I thought to myself, I have really got my work cut out tonight. I justified the selection by saying that West Brom have nothing to loose, they will try and come onto us, so maybe for that reason it is a good idea to play Song as DM. In the space of the first two minutes that theory had gone to pot; Song had given the ball away twice so cheaply that all around me were calling him the kind of names that would have made the name calling by the spuds in my playground seem complimentary. Eboue was no better and the combined school boy error committed by both of them as they lined up in what was supposedly a wall was so farcical and the only thing missing was Benny Hill music.

There is no doubt that the best way to watch Arsenal away is to actually go to the game; we have all experienced it at one time or another, nothing beats the atmosphere, punctuated by the collective euphoria of jumping up en masse while simultaneously screaming the word goooooooal. For a split second reality is suspended; there are no taxes, there is a god and he supports Arsenal. Yep, you’ve got it, that’s the feeling. I was unable to make last night’s game but to the hard core few that made the effort I salute you.

7 Almunia..If it wasn’t for the school boy behaviour of two of the members in the wall he would have kept yet another clean sheet.
6 Sagna…an easy game for him, took his job of defending in his stride.
7 Toure…the pass of the match and a crucial goal, the lion roared.
6 Djourou…still learning, but clearly improving.
6 Clichy….lots of heart as always; when we win it is easier to ignore his attacking deficiencies.
4 Eboue…oh dear, failed to build on his good cameo against Fulham.
3&5 Song…3 in the first half, all he needed was a Charlie Chaplin moustache but Wenger cleverly found a way of lifting his confidence in the second half.
6…Denilson..yet another efficient game, no mistakes, broke play up and found one our own.
6.5 Nasri…very bright start, must be realising by now that he is going to have some fierce competition for his place in the near future.
9 Bendtner…oohh Nicki, man of the match..is there anyone out there who is still saying we should sell him?
7 Arshavin…patience, its coming, its coming.

6 Diaby..is becoming more and more powerful in the midfield.
Merida.. not on long enough, but made one very impressive run.


I may not have gone, as I said, but I did watch it in a place that I regard as the next best thing: the Twelve Pins pub in Finsbury Park, the most Arsenal pub on the planet.

If someone had drawn a cartoon of the Arsenal supporters arriving they would have set the Twelve pins in a desert, sand as far as the eye could see with gooners crawling on their hands and knees towards the entrance, their tongues hanging out, as if dying of thirst; a speech bubble above each fan, but instead of them containing the expected words water, water must have water, the words would have been replaced with “goals, goals, must have goals.”

This thirst was finally quenched by Bendtner, the stand out player of the night, scoring two goals that Thierry Henry would have been proud of. The first after 4 minutes, picking the ball up on the right, he deftly curled it along the ground, into the far corner. Bendtner’s second came from a brilliant 40 yard pass from Toure which he controlled well before rifling it into the net. The confidence of both these players was sky high. Ten minutes prior to playing the pass of the match Toure had scored what probably was the most important goal of the game. A beautifully floated in free kick by Arshavin was powerfully headed into the back of the net by King Kolo, this effectively broke West Broms resistance and the rest of the game was played out, as I suspect Wenger had anticipated from the beginning, in a Carling Cup kind of way, this was confirmed to me by the welcome appearance of Fran Merida in the 82nd minute.

They show every Arsenal game live at the Twelve Pins. Inside there are two big screens and when I say big I mean big and when I say every game live, I mean every game live. It was packed with gooners who sing their hearts out. It costs £7 to get in, you get two free drinks with that and they stamp your hand, like they used to at school discos. I love it.

Written by London.. F**ked up by Avenell.. lol.

    Wey Hey 1st

  2. avenell says:

    Sorry about that!!!! A bit of behind the scenes panic.. 😉

    Rico they say you should use the other arm because it feels like someone else…..is doing the ironing.. 😉

  3. JonJon says:

    we should sell bendtner

  4. rico01 says:

    Just watching the game – that defence wall was absolutely dreadful, shocking defending…!

    ave 😉

  5. rico01 says:

    How on earth did Nik miss that easy chance that Eboue gave him on a plate – Thats the best ‘scuff’ Eboue has made all season 😉

  6. rico01 says:

    And I like the look of Luke Moore – he knows where the goal is, good save by Almunia 😛

  7. rico01 says:

    And why are we not attacking crosses, Nik just stands and watches them!! 😦

  8. rico01 says:

    Eboue – what a howling miss!!

  9. rico01 says:

    Song and Eboue = Manure 😉

  10. rico01 says:

    In fact my chickens can control a brussel sprout better than they control a football 🙄

  11. avenell says:

    You should get that on youtube rico.. 🙂

  12. rico01 says:

    I wouldnt know where to start ave 😛

  13. rico01 says:

    Nik lacks aggression, big time

  14. avenell says:

    i know the feeling rico.. just because I help run this place I am sure peeps think I know about computers.. I never sent my first email until last december.. 😦

  15. rico01 says:

    I remember that ave, you were asking me to email your competition answer to ********** – you have come a long way 😛

  16. rico01 says:

    What was with the goal celebration last night, have one of the players become a daddy ?

  17. avenell says:

    Sorry a little edit was in order.. 😉

    I don’t know rico.. arshavin was funny he was sort of half doing it!! 🙂

  18. London says:

    It’s interesting reading the other reports today on last night’s match. I purposely didn’t before I posted as I didn’t want to be influenced or equally frightened off. I am certainly appreciating other peoples work far more than I used to.

  19. avenell says:

    🙂 I know exactly what you are saying.. You are up there to be shot at and there is a lot of work involved.

    I sent you an email about 30mins ago london thanking you but my broadband crashed and I’ve been unplugging it etc.. can you just confirm you recieved it please.

  20. rico01 says:

    Well I enjoyed the game overall, Nik should have scored at least 4, Arshavin could have got his name on the score sheet – Ramsey was ok, apart from the lacklustre back pass, good to see Merida have a run, i really thing he has a big future – and Diaby on last nights performance must always start, either alongside Cesc or Denilson – Cant wait now for the Burnley game…

    Sorry ave, didnt know you would need to edit, otherwise i would have not written it..

    What naffs me off, if we had won the last few drawn games we would be up in 2nd, knocking on the door to the Manure 😦

  21. London says:

    Nice summery there Rico

  22. rico01 says:

    Hey London 😉

  23. rico01 says:

    Where is everybody ?

  24. rico01 says:

    Dum de doooooo

  25. rico01 says:

    Shoobie Do Da

  26. rico01 says:

    Ok, i take a hint, i am off for a while, catch you all soon – be good 😛

  27. avenell says:

    I’m about rico.. I don’t know where the others are.. it must be sunny!

  28. Rasputin says:

    Some of us have jobs to do 😉

    Hey rico – am I to take ith that you are not a Nik fan? I have to agree that he needs to show more aggression, but I think he is a better footballer than Ade and when he gets his head on a long punt forward he at least tries to find one of our players. The TT is particularly ineffective at that facet of play for someone of his height and bulk.

  29. peachesgooner says:


    London – please take a bow, I’m gonna love reading your posts 😆 and yours ave 😆 and yours JonJon 😆

    I bet you all think I’ve been with Frank all day, sadly he wasn’t there this morning and I’ve been going through a list left by my children which took me away from Avenell Rd 😦

    Rico – how are you feeling today?

  30. peachesgooner says:

    Hi rasp – you having a nice day?

  31. peachesgooner says:

    see, some people just wizz through on their way to doing something else 🙂

  32. rico01 says:

    Hey guys and gals, back for a short while, then have to go shopping, clean the piggies and then it will be bed time 😉

    Hi peaches, much better thank you, I must have bought the team luck, I didnt watch or listen live 😉

    Hey Rasp – I am not a fan of Nik’s, but if he starts scoring 1/2 every time he plays, I may learn to like him – a little 😉 I would sell him and Ade 🙄

    London, I was very rude earlier, I did not say what a wonderful masterpiece you wrote – I am so very sorry 😛

  33. rico01 says:

    Gosh, how many smilies can i get in a comment 😉

  34. avenell says:

    Which megastore likes to take your hard earned Rico.. you seem like a waitrose lady?

  35. rico01 says:

    ave – ha ha, I go anywhere, Lidil for the pigs veg, Sainsbury for us, and Tesco for the chicken’s veggies – Lidil have really good pasta/spag which is Italian and a good price – the latter being the most important right now. As much as I love Waitrose and M&S, its all a little bit overpriced, maybe different it I ate meat, but a vegetable is a vegetable this time of year I think 😉

  36. rico01 says:

    Cucumber in Lidil is 49p and its British

    Tesco – 1.28
    Sainsbury 1.18 (i think)
    Lord knows what Waitrose must cost 😉

  37. rico01 says:

    What say you peaches ?? Waitrose or elsewhere ??

  38. rico01 says:

    peaches – where you gone now ??

  39. rico01 says:

    see what happens, I come on, and everyone goes 😦

  40. Rasputin says:

    I’m forgetting my manners again – top post London 😉

  41. rico01 says:

    I am now sulking 😥

    Off to lock the chickens up, and shop til i drop 😉

    Catch you later, or if not, see you all tomorrow 🙂

  42. peachesgooner says:

    Don’t sulk. I’m here

  43. peachesgooner says:

    I’ve been compiling a long and very complicated estimate thats doing my head in aaarrrggghhhhhhhh

  44. peachesgooner says:

    And now I can’t find my memory stick doubleaaaaarrrrgggghhhh

  45. avenell says:

    This is more sensitive than raifs blog of feelings on here today and better than whichsupermarket.com.for veg. 😉

  46. London says:


    It is very kind of you to say that. It seems a tad long to me but I learnt a lot.

    I am a bit of a Bendtner fan. I went the Sheffield Utd game in the CC which for me was one of the best games of the season so far.

    Bendtner was superb and I always remember thinking that it is only a question of time before he starts showing this in the league. We are still probably some way of him being able to reproduce last night’s performance week in week out but when you think of the five year age difference between him and Adebayor then I think you realise how much of an asset we have and how good he is going to be when he is the same age as Ade is now.

  47. avenell says:

    London.. hello I am here.. 😉

  48. London says:

    You guys are so kind.

  49. London says:

    Good Evening Ave

    Do you know if Walcott is a contender for Sunday?

  50. peachesgooner says:

    sorry, didn’t answer the question did I?

    I’m a sainsbury kind of girl – mainly cos I’m surrounded by them. Marks for special yummy things, waitrose if I’m in enfield town – actually if I’m on a yoghurt kick, waitrose have the yummiest yoghrts.

    do i pass the test 😆

  51. avenell says:

    No mate I don’t, I thought he was aiming for Roma. he only started training monday.

    I just asked a bit earlier if you got my email?… my broadband crashed ..

  52. peachesgooner says:

    London – it was special, I love reading posts that have humour and nostalgia. Well done 🙂

  53. peachesgooner says:

    Bugger bugger bugger bugger

  54. peachesgooner says:

    found it 🙂

  55. rico01 says:

    Got delayed by a full dishwasher !!

    See, i announce my departure and you all come floding back 😉

    peaches – if you have a Lidil near you, try their yogurts, they are not bad, and not full of cream… 😉

    London – I hope you are right about Nik, I really do, time will tell I guess 🙂

    Def off now – TTFN 😆

  56. peachesgooner says:

    yey hat-trick 🙂 🙂 🙂

  57. London says:

    Thank you very much Peaches.

    What did you loose?

    Yes, Ave I got the email, thanks.

  58. London says:

    Lose not loose

  59. peachesgooner says:

    have fun rico – lots more footie tnite 😆

  60. rico01 says:





  61. Rasputin says:

    This site is full of loooose women 😉

  62. peachesgooner says:

    How lucky are you to get to consort with them 😆

  63. London says:

    Is the Villa game on telly?

  64. London says:

    Nice one Ras

  65. peachesgooner says:

    Hi l’don, actually how do you feel about Donny 😉

    No, I think its the Blackburn game on sky

  66. peachesgooner says:

    forgot the ‘only’

  67. London says:

    I’m quite happy with Donny if you think it sounds right

  68. peachesgooner says:

    Donny – do you like it? I can appreciate that you’re filling up at the thought of being aligned with Donny Osmond – although Rasp suggested it as an association to Lonny Donnigan (spelling rasp?) the other night

  69. avenell says:

    Hi guys this is a double post today… well sort of.

    I have added a page under the header called Boring Boring Avenell temporarily

    It will be the site law court in the end so we all be happy bunnies.

    I will listen to ideas, but don’t just say ban the people you don’t like .. me for instance.. 🙂

  70. JonJon says:

    bendtners still crap. lol 😉

    sorry i cant stop,

    hi everyone. 😉

  71. London says:


    I dont really mind, Lon, Don, Donny or Lee if you like.

    Ave, that is a nicely crafted piece above.

  72. avenell says:

    Thanks London..

    When you in jonjon (mr email) ?

  73. JonJon says:

    like the post london, bendtner played well,

    but the way i see it is that the team we played are a coca cola league team punching above their weight and getting battered, this season they have been rubbish, they cant attack or defend so they made us look good.

    bendnters two goals just say to me what ive though about him all along, hes a coca cola league player who can only do it against coca cola league team.

    hes been crap all season and now after 1 good game hes the next dennis bergkamp. i hope im wrong for the sake of our club, everyone loves a top player, but im not buying into it at all.

    it was west brom, even song looked world class.

    told u when gallas doesnt play we’ll conceed. we’ll i said we’ll lose but we managed to score so i was half right 😉

  74. London says:


    I do, of course, understand your reservations about Bendtner, but he is steadily improving and as an impact sub he has come of the bench and scored some very valuable goals for us. Are you comfortable with the idea that as a forth choice striker he is not bad?

  75. avenell says:

    I’d say he is nearly promoted to equal second now..

    1st RvP.
    2nd Ade, Dudu, Bendtner.

    Dudu could be the one who suffers as he is the most similar to Robin…

  76. JonJon says:

    im not even comfortable with him in the squad,

    or ade, i want them both sold.

    well maybe im being harsh but if nikki can continue this form ill warm to him but i can guarantee last nights performance was a 1 in 10 one.

  77. avenell says:

    Bendtner should come out to this.. eh JJ?

  78. JonJon says:

    hahaha thats right mate,

    maybe im being too harsh on him, he is young, but ive never seen him do that well in three seasons, why should one good game against a shite team have me jumping for joy???

    i hope he proves me wrong, but im not expecting that much from him to be honest.

  79. avenell says:

    He has improved from that shit performance he put in against Burnley.. If he can keep that improvement up you wont hate him as much.. I am starting to like him a bit.. Even rico his no1 fan has started to warm to him..

  80. JonJon says:

    if he was 4th choice i wouldnt mind i suppose, to come on against the little shit teams wouldnt be so bad, but if we got a 10mil+ offer for him in summer would u take it??????

  81. JonJon says:

    right im off need to run some erands but i’ll be back 2morrow and hopefully we’ll have a long chat about how much poo poo is in Martin o neills knickers when theres a huge cannon looking right up his arse,

  82. rico01 says:

    City 1-0 up, thats bloody good, hope and pray its stays like that, best would be City score one or two more ………

  83. avenell says:

    Oi you have a look in the bar under the heading.. your thoughts please!!!

  84. rico01 says:

    Oi Ave – Spot-On, very good 😉

  85. avenell says:

    Oi Oi rico.. I meant the other one.. I want to name it after Raif when he gives me permission..
    Are man u still losing?

  86. rico01 says:

    Which one ave, you have confused me now ??? 🙄

  87. rico01 says:

    manure are 2-1 up ave

  88. avenell says:

    “ave’s terms” and what do you think of the “girlie bits” for you peaches and nita?..

    I hate man u.. 😦

  89. rico01 says:

    ave – credit to you old chap, you have done yourself and us bloggers very proud – peaches and i can now go off and talk cooking, gardens, animals, anything, get you old boy – its top bananna 😛

    I have to go again, weary bones 😦

    Come on City…..

    See you all very soon, stay safe, and sleep tight

    Nighty Night – ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  90. London says:


    Well that looks a whole lot better.

    Someone on talk sport was ridiculing the competition that is going on at the moment for forth place; he was saying that the whole thing has been so elevated that he wouldn’t be surprised if the winners ended up going round in an open top bus. It made me laugh.

    Talk t’y’all tomorrow

  91. avenell says:

    Villa lose .. Everton draw.. we have had worse nights.. 🙂

  92. avenell says:

    The Spuds would be booking the routemaster up for sure London..

  93. avenell says:

    Oi peaches what’s it all about as been up for ages..

    I didn’t want to do the boring boring avenell one believe me.

    And don’t abuse the girlie one by leaving us boys all alone on here!!!

  94. peachesgooner says:

    Thats a good plan, we havn’t had a parade for along time – hopefully we can parade 4th place along with a couple of trophies in May 🙂

    Hope you’ve all had a nice evening, I’ve posted on all the blogs ave – gonna take days to keep up 😆

    Off to bed now, catch up tmoro, nite nite all xx

  95. peachesgooner says:

    Hiya, didn’t know if you were still about.

    Do you have to wait to be invited onto the girlie one?

  96. peachesgooner says:

    Ave – you have to do whats best for managing the site, can’t have you losing sleep over silly things.

    The others will help you to do the policing though won’t they?

  97. peachesgooner says:

    Hey, guess who got the last hat-trick of the day?

    Yiipppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee 😆

  98. avenell says:

    I put it on for you and rico to talk cooking gardening and anything else you like to talk about you are in charge.. I will clean it when you want to start again..
    If it doesn’t work I will scrap it..

    I am going to push the blog on now and a search engine wanted it to be more established, hence the changes.

  99. peachesgooner says:

    Are you paying me back now……….a girl can get offended you know……..oh well if you’re not there this time I really am going to bed……cos I got my hat-trick after all………fancy villa losing again………you don’t think they could carry on dropping points do you……….and spuds up to 13th booooooooo……….

  100. avenell says:

    I got the 100th comment though.. 🙂

  101. peachesgooner says:

    Thats better, you want it to be a proper blog, we’ll all need a code to go and chat somewhere else. I’ll think up some clues.

    WERE YOU WAITING JUST TO GET THE 100th comment ooooh

  102. peachesgooner says:

    Thats sneeky cos obviously you know the count!!!!

    Are you guaged on the number of hits or the number of comments?

  103. peachesgooner says:

    This is what happens when you don’t answer…….

    another hat-trick 😆

    Nite nite again xxxx

  104. avenell says:

    By who peaches?

    At the moment we get more comments per hits than a lot of others because we all knew each other.

    I think hits are important to like top of the blogs etc..
    but we have only reached 300ish on there a day when wordpress say we have had a 1100..

    I only know how many on this post because it is under the article. the same as you..

  105. avenell says:

    Nite peaches.. x

  106. kelsey says:

    Morning all,

    Still in my comps in the pairs, semi and final today,lost the triples in the quarters.

    JonJon, i read your post at 18.40 which is even more negative than iam usually :).
    However we won,and results went our way last night,but like you one game doesn’t make a season,and WBA are absolutely pants.Show me 3 or 4 consecutive wins with the same appetite and I might change my mind.Theo and Eddie should be back by the time we play our next league game,but as long as we have very average players in the squad,we will not compete.
    Vela is definitely not up to it yet,if ever,i don’t rate him much.I am no lover of nic,but at least he shows signs of being a more complete striker than Ade,but I see trouble ahead.Nic will not hang around as he is young if not given the chance,and Ade,well we should just get rid of.Eddie will become our pivitol striker,with the above mentioned 2 next in pecking order,and eventually Theo will go central as well.RVP is not what i call an out and out striker,but though slow has a brain.it will be interesting to see how things develop/Have a nice day.

  107. JonJon says:

    villa have cocked it all up, they in trouble now.

    they will crack its all new to them they have never been in a so called business end of the season fight before, well not for a long while anyway, they dont know what it takes whereas weve been doing it for the past 10 years and its on, come on, bring it villa lets see what your made of.

  108. London says:

    Morning Kelsey

    Good luck today in the comp.

    A very though provoking piece there. I’m still taking it all in..mmmmm…lots to think about.

  109. kelsey says:

    still here.Did you read my post to you about Carlin Music and Freddie Beanstock ?

  110. Rasputin says:

    Morning London / Kelsey,

    I only ever signed one profesional contract in my failed career as a pop star……it was to a little known new company called StarPro Management, the owner was a young entrepreneur who had a famous uncle …..Michael Grade. Shame we were crap or I might be able to afford a season ticket in club class 😉

  111. Rasputin says:

    Morning JonJon,

    Nice to see you’re in positive mode today 🙂 – so maybe we don’t have to forget about the prem and concentrate on the cups after all! I hope it doesn’t happen, but if it all goes pear-shaped in Milan and we underestimate Burnley, we may have to put all our energy into the league?

  112. Rasputin says:

    Roma, not Milan – what am I thinking of???????

  113. Rasputin says:

    I might as well get the first hattrick of thee day before Peaches grabs it…..

  114. kelsey says:

    Yet another rumour about every club in europe wants wenger,and then i am sure a taken out of context about cesc leaving if Wenger leaves.I know it is all bollocks,but we have done nothing of any great importance in nearly 4 years,and yet the tabloids seem to have a vendetta against us to stir things up and cause unrest. Don’t believe when the players say they don’t read the papers,I am sure they do.i sometimes think everyone in GB wants us to fail time and time again because “we are a french team”. See you laters.

  115. Rasputin says:

    Make that quintuplet!

  116. Rasputin says:

    City thought they could bully Milan into selling Kaka and made themselves look foolish, they are so predictable – go for the very best and offer obscene money. I hear they are going to bid £100m for Messi. I bet Mark Hughes is really flattered and motivated by all this open discussion of his successor.

  117. London says:


    Yes, I did read the post and I have just re-read it. Freddie Beanstock ( who I don’t know personally) as well as having Carlin Records (which I also do not know) must have also had Carlin Music (which I certainly did know of)The difference is that Carlin Music was a music publishing company which may well have represented Michael Jackson. I am not saying that I doubt it, I’m saying I simply can’t remember. One thing I am sure of though is that Carlin Records (the record company arm) did not represent Michael Jackson as he was signed to Epic records, part of CBS records.
    Anyway, I cannot imagine a publishing company that would have been more successful at that time more than Carlin Music. Michael Jackson’s publishing income was monstrous, so if you had a share in that I am sure you are sitting very comfortably out there in sunny Spain.

  118. Rasputin says:

    Doh, just read back and Peaches has trumped me once again – why do I bother? :ouch:

  121. JonJon says:

  127. kelsey says:

    And I was friend;ly with the late tommy Boyce who produced and i think co wrote some of the monkees hits,we met in london and I was involved with him to some extent with the group Darts.That’s my entire contribution to the Music Business.

    Morning rico and everyone else.

  128. kelsey says:

    hello chaf,

    many on here are from North or North West london.The credentials apart from obviously being a gooner, are in interest in cooking,landscape gardening,chocolate,music,and a lover of animals 🙂

  129. rico01 says:

    Hi kelsey – you bowling today ??

  130. avenell says:

    Morning everybody!

    Hi chaf I responded to your question yesterday, I don’t know if you saw it..

  131. rico01 says:

  132. avenell says:

    I was up all night re-designing the blog rico.. 😉

  136. rico01 says:

  137. chaf says:

    Hello. This is community service with a difference! Yeah, I’m a mature gooner, went to my first match in 1967, 2-1 against Sunderland. My hobbies are walking the dogs, making real tea (from varied my collection, no tes bags), Chocolate? Sometimes, if I’m off the booze, music, mainly reggae, ska, reading a bit and sitting in the steam room. Unfortunately, I’d like to join in a bit more but I’ve got someone coming round to do a bit of work. I didn’t see the comment yesterday, but definitely will respond as it looks like its gonna be good….

  138. peachesgooner says:

    Morning all

    I’m not really here, just popping to say hi, hope everyones good and JJ 🙂 we’re three points off top-four. I know it means nothing if we string together another run of 0-0’s but really how consistent have we been so far this season 😆

    Well done rasp for getting the first hat-trick of the day 😆

    You get the first of the day, havn’t you got any work to do

  139. avenell says:

    That’s okay rico she’s just not talking to you anymore.. 😉

  140. avenell says:

    Only joking rico!!

  141. rico01 says:

    Hi chaf – animal lover, spot-on 😉

  142. rico01 says:

    Morning peaches, ta ta peaches, have a good day 😉

  143. chaf says:

    By the way London, I know Ravenscroft school very well, why don’t you call yourself North London instead

  144. rico01 says:

    ave – go back to bed 😉

  145. avenell says:

    Best offer I have had today rico.. and you a lady and all… 🙂

  146. chaf says:

    Yeah I am animal lover, and I’ve got a rescue dog from Sheringham in Norfolk thats called Teddy. I was going to change his name but I just cut his bits if instead.

  147. avenell says:

    Read what my mate chaf says rico.. I’m doing this for the community.. keeping you lot off the streets.. I’m going to see if I can get a goverment grant.. 🙂

  148. avenell says:

    Chaf …. Kelsey and his missus are going to love you mate..

  149. Rasputin says:

    Ave runs the ‘Batt-arsey Old Dog’s Home 😉

  150. London says:


    The name London is a bit of a problem as it is not easy to shorten and make it sound friendlier. It came about a couple of years ago when I had the good fortune of being able to spend a whole summer in Spain…. missing all things Arsenal I found these new fan dangled things called blogs…being the kind of person who can’t resist poking his nose it, I felt the need to give my tupence worth; although before doing so, I had to, as you know, come up with an alias. As I was sitting in Barcelona it made sense to choose the name London and now I am stuck with it.

  151. chaf says:

    London. Could be worse… could be Manchester

  152. JonJon says:

    hi rico, im good ave you?

    its all going alex song for villa. 😉

  153. rico01 says:

    Rasp – thats funny 😉

    Chaf – fitting, the only teddy sheringham i know of has no balls either 😉

    Ave – did you not read the word ‘GO’ 😉

  154. rico01 says:

    JJ – apart from coming home this morning to find one of the chickens had got through the fence into the garden so I have been out putting up chicken wire 😦 It was one of the young ones, i must feed her a bit more pasta so she fills and then too big to get through the gaps 😉

  155. rico01 says:

    Where’s raif, haven’t seem him for a few days, anyone know if he is ok?

  156. JonJon says:

    hi peaches

    hi chaf

  157. avenell says:

    I was thinking ras.. you could re name that slum at the bottom of your mountain.. “Bendtners Knob” ..

    I’ll get my coat.. lol..

  158. Rasputin says:

    I like ‘Lonny Donny’, it conjures images of gleaming dentistry and 60’s skiffle all at the same time! or what about Le Don if you want a french flavour with sinister mafia overtones..

  159. avenell says:

    Raifs okay rico.. he said he was a bit “tom dick” I emailed him last night to get permission fo raifs terminology.. ^^^^
    He will be on later.

  160. avenell says:

    My mate sound engineers Lonnie sometimes ras.. he is chris barbers sound man.. do you know him?
    Chris not my mate baz..

  161. rico01 says:

    Thanks ave – glad he is ok

  162. rico01 says:

    Off for a while, catch you all after lunch 🙂

  163. rico01 says:

    Quick hattrick just before i leave 😉

  164. Rasputin says:

    Lonnie snuffed it in 2002 ave? – what kind of engineering does your mate do on him? 😉

  165. avenell says:

    Haha I must admit I haven’t seen him for a few years ras.. he still does mr barber as far as I know.

  166. London says:


    It’s all gone Alex Song. Nice one. Lol

  167. avenell says:

    Oi London jonjon stole that from me!! check out raifs terminology at the top under the titles..
    You helped start it..

  168. JonJon says:


    id love to take credit but i beleive it was ave that came up with it 1st 😉

  169. avenell says:

    Hey jonjon.. do you like the changes? I bet you had a quick look in the girlie bits lol..

    I wonder if they do a girlie after midnight .. 🙂

  170. Rasputin says:

    Haha ave – just read your ‘Dane End’ comment! He’s gonna have to score a hattrick in the next 3 games to impress JonJon and Rico. I think manu have proved that you don’t have to have a big guy up front if your littleuns are aggressive and quick. Maybe AA and Eduardo can become our Tevez and Rooney. I’d probably only use the Great Dane as a sub and perhaps Ade could cut up the oranges at half time 😉

  171. peachesgooner says:

    Maybe we’ll do a girlie ‘after eight’ and combine the choc at the same time 🙂

    I’m not really here, catch up later 🙂

  172. rico01 says:

    Cashley arrested in early hours, drunk and abusive to the cops, given a fixed penalty, £80 fine

  173. peachesgooner says:

    That cashley, naughty boy – do you think he told the police he was Jermaine Pennant 😆

  174. JonJon says:

    was he locked up overnight???

    10men went to bed, went to bed with ashley

  175. Rasputin says:

    Cheryl’s gonna keep her legs crossed for another 6 months now………

  176. JonJon says:

    not if she sees me in that 6mnths 😉

  177. peachesgooner says:

    Cheryls not here, isn’t she doing the celebrity mountain climb for charity?

  178. rico01 says:

    You bad bunch 😉 peaches she is up Kilamanjaro isnt she – and yes i know i have probably spelt tha wrong before you all tell me off 😉

  179. peachesgooner says:

    Go for it JonJon 😉 Shes too good for him, hes a louse anyway….

  180. rico01 says:

    JJ – get your hiking boots out 😉

  181. peachesgooner says:

    Well done rico – you’re a brave lady, I couldn’t spell it so went down the ‘mountain’ route 😳

  182. peachesgooner says:

    …..or up the mountain route 😳

  183. peachesgooner says:

    rasp will tell us how to spell it 😆

  184. peachesgooner says:



  185. peachesgooner says:

    gone for a bit, miss ya xxxxx

  186. JonJon says:

    she could climb up and down my mountain anyday

    id show her my killamanjaro 😉

  187. rico01 says:

    peaches – i followed the spell as it sounds, just for a giggle really, I may google it for a laugh, see how far out i am –

    mountain route – that made me chuckle 😉

  188. rico01 says:

    Mount Kilimanjaro

    One letter out 😦

    Got to go out, ketchup later 🙂

  189. Rasputin says:

    Yes, but JonJon, Kilimanjaro is an extinct volcano, its no good without an eruption or two 😉

  190. JonJon says:

    LMAO rasp,

    theres nothing extinct about my volcano, there would be plenty of eruptions. 😉

  191. Big Raddy says:

    Magma – a wonderful word !

  192. avenell says:

    Big fanfare of trumpets!!!!!!

    congratulations Radders you are the 5,000 comment lol..

    I thought one of the ladies would get it.. 🙂

  193. rico01 says:

    Huff Huff, I thought no-one was about……

    Top Man Raddy 😉

  194. avenell says:

    I waiited on 4,999 and didn’t post waiting for you rico..

    I just saw all the snow on the news 20 miles up the road peeps trapped in cars etc.. we haven’t seen any.. What about up your way?

  195. rico01 says:

    Bless you ave, I failed 😉

    No snow here yet, the sky keeps going that funny colour, but nothing, dont want it either as the chickens will get cold feet 🙂

  196. avenell says:

    The neigbour just came around with a box of eggs from her chicks.. There on 2 a day now.. how many do yours lay a day?

  197. rico01 says:

    Only one ave, didnt know they could lay two a day, best i go and have a word with them 😉

  198. avenell says:

    Try that IVF treatment .. or is that the west ham hooligans?

    they have more than one.. your picking on me today I’ve noticed lol..

  199. Big Raddy says:

    I am so proud to get the 5000.

    Firstly, I would like to thank my family, who have stood by me through all the hardship My partner, who brings me joy, My agent who put me forward for the comment, and finally, but most importantly Avenell, who gave me the opportunity to attain an honour I never imagined in my wildest fantasies I could achieve.

    Thank you all. I will now go and get royally smashed.

  200. rico01 says:

    ave – i am not 😉

    We get two a day ave, but from different chickens, we are waiting now for the younger ones to start laying

    great speach Raddy

    Off for an hour or two – ketchup later 🙂

  201. Wrighty7 says:

    Wrighty is in the venue!

  202. Big Raddy says:

    Hi Wrighty

  203. avenell says:

    Hello wrighty.. your blogs going well mate! I just had a look in Top Of The blogs thing today.. 12,000 hits, we are only on about 300 lol.
    But we nearly caught up once.. 🙂

  204. avenell says:

    Sorry Radders thought you had gone.. good speach mate!

  205. Big Raddy says:

    What is the link to the Top of the Blogs Avenell ?

  206. avenell says:

    In the widget thingy on the side at the top mate.. >>>

    There a few more we will try and join soon..

  207. Big Raddy says:

    Thanks Ave. Hope you liked the mention !!

    It has been a slow day across all the blogs. I know because Thurs is my day off, and I look for a bit of banter…

  208. avenell says:

    How’s school going, do you do 4 days a week then? phew..

  209. Big Raddy says:

    So how would I find out how popular a blog is (not this one)? Or is it a private statistic?

  210. Big Raddy says:

    No only 3 days, but I teach on Fridays.

  211. avenell says:

    I’m in and out of the W/shop so I may go missing for 10 mins at a time, so bear with me.. 😉

  212. avenell says:

    If you go on wrighty’s site. (link at the top) he has a few more links on there.

    I think wordpress have figures for there blogs.. I know a good one that was at 19th the other day.. 😉

    try going into your wordpress account and press help..

  213. Big Raddy says:

    I wish I had a workshop.

    School is fun Ave, though I am at least 15 years older than the teacher, and 30 years older than most of the students. They treat me very well, sort of like a Great-Uncle !

    Last week we studied the Hippy era, as though it was ancient history like the Greeks, or the Romans !! I had to remind them that I was a teenager in the ’60’s. They were aghast – and when I brought in a picture of me with hip-length hair, flairs and Lennon glasses, they went into hysterics. It was funny though.

    Still, I am younger than Kelsey !!! 🙂 🙂

  214. avenell says:

    I’m looking at your avatar thinking what raddy would look like dressed like that with long hair..
    I cannot talk I had a bowie cut in the seventies but my hair was wavy and it looked crap..

    Kelsey maybe older but he has more hair than me .. lol..

  215. Big Raddy says:

    Me too Avenell. But then I have less hair than an apple !

  216. Big Raddy says:

    Off to cook dinner for my Beloved. Risotto con Piselli tonight. (Rice and peas)

    Come on you rip roaring Young Gunners

  217. avenell says:

    Cheers raddy.. sounds nice!!

  218. kelsey says:

    Did someone mention my name ?

  219. kelsey says:

    Yes,how did we get on today ?

  220. JonJon says:

    hi kelsey

  221. kelsey says:

    We lost the Final but picked up 400 euros c/o Halifax Espana as runners up 🙂

  222. kelsey says:

    have you got the all clear now,pal.

  223. JonJon says:

    not yet, results on 11th march, cant be all bad or id of heard something sooner, its something easily fixed imo so i aint worried one bit

    thanks for asking.

    did u have a good day today??

  224. kelsey says:

    Comments are taking ages to post again,is there a hiccup in the system.

  225. JonJon says:

    im having no problems kelsey, is it a bad line at your end 😉

  226. kelsey says:

    6 hours of intense bowls with 20 minutes between games is quite tiring even at my tender age.But I look at the blue sky and sun and consider myself lucky.

  227. kelsey says:

    Maybe,because i am abroad,don’t really know if that is relevant.

  228. JonJon says:

    could be kelsey, could be, so did you win a trophy???

  229. kelsey says:

    I will be back later,good old sausages and mash with fried onions mixed in, is on the table.

  230. kelsey says:

    kelsey Says:
    March 5, 2009 at 7:06 pm

    We lost the Final but picked up 400 euros c/o Halifax Espana as runners up 🙂

  231. JonJon says:

    😉 runner up trophy eh?? must of had your arsenal shirt on. 😉

  232. avenell says:

    No wonder my halifax shares have gone down..

  233. JonJon says:

    hey ave, hows the day been

  234. avenell says:

    Bit quiet on here mate, which is good as a bit of work turned up this morning..

  235. JonJon says:

    good good, works been mad at my end too, really hectic, its a good thing really, companys in our sector are folding left right and centre, and we are taking the work, just hope the ppl in charge dont bite off more than they can chew. alot of works a good thing in a time like this but too much can have a negative effect.

  236. avenell says:

    When raddy said go rip roaring young gunners, did he mean arsenal play the spuds tonight at the pane? If so I cannot see it on arse tv.. We are supposed to run an arsenal blog.. lol

  237. JonJon says:

    i thought that too, but u do like to indulge in the occassional conversation about gardens and food, this is no ordinary arsenal blog, this is a marks and spencer arsenal blog.

  238. avenell says:

    Have a look in the girlie bits.. it’s a pizza hut arsenal blog too..

  239. JonJon says:

    how do i create something like that, i want to play.

  240. avenell says:

    You have to create a new page.. it’s one of the icons on the left in the dashboard.. create new.. You will have to keep the title short as there isn’t much room and it fooks the row up..

  241. JonJon says:

    what about stuff like tom watts collection?? how do we do that???

  242. avenell says:

    4th icon down.. add new.. they are in AZ order as well in the titles..

  243. London says:

    Evening Roadsters

    Do you know what Big Raddy is studying?

  244. avenell says:

    My dashboard… 7 down apperance…. widgets.

    I’ll have to look the name of the widget you want up.. but if you want pictures you need to open a photobucket account .. it takes a while to get used to all but well worth learning..

  245. JonJon says:

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh, of corse, will have a play later ave,

    walcott dudu and gallas back for the weekend, things are looking up for once,

    see how this season has been swings and roundabouts, our season has been so shit in patches that when we beat a shite team and a few injured players return i think we’ve won the league. lol 😉

  246. JonJon says:

    hey there london hows it going?

  247. avenell says:

    As all the authors are on who wants the next post??

  248. avenell says:

    You have first shout JJ.. If your busy it’s up to london, if he wants pre match or post match…

  249. JonJon says:

    ill take in but i got one already in the box for the weekend, just need to tweak it here and there 😉 easy.

  250. avenell says:

    Arsenal v spuds is on setanta one, if you have it..

  251. London says:

    Im working on something about the defence, which should be ready tomorrow but its a piece that can go any time really.

  252. avenell says:

    So you want tomorrow pm/sat am one.. is that right?

  253. London says:

    I love that edit thing

  254. JonJon says:

    london, bang yours on sat, everyone will be about it will get better coverage and ill put mine on sun. then ave do one mon??

    what do we think??

  255. avenell says:

    The post match sunday one is the most important.. as long as you are watching the game jonjon..

    Don’t worry about me I have done loads!

  256. London says:

    I will finish it then see what you think. I wanted to try and do something that wasn’t related to a specific match so it can go any time Saturday, Monday, Wednesday, whenever.

    The most important thing seems to me that there isn’t a match report still on when a new match has been played i.e. you don’t want the West Brom report still on there after the Burnley game.

  257. JonJon says:

    i meant the pre match build up ave.

  258. avenell says:

    I like to change every 2 days if I can.. but when you do a good long one like this one we can stretch to 3.

    It must change saturday though..

  259. London says:

    If they are not related to a specific match or event then it might be better if we just do them and use them when they are ready. I feel less pressure that way. Although Sunday has to be done regardless.

    I still think it is a good idea to invite people to be guest contributors like me really, Rasputin I reckon would feel good if he was asked. Just a thought.

  260. avenell says:

    jonjon = saturday am then okay??

    London = match report sunday pm/ monday am okay?

  261. London says:

    Jonjon if we just both try and finish ours then we will certainly have one for Saturday, the match report has to be done for Monday and then either yours or mine that isn’t used on Saturday can be used on Wednesday?

  262. avenell says:

    That could leave you with 4 in a row.. as long as you are happy london.. I am mate..

  263. London says:


    I can try to do the match report but I think I would like some input from you guys, anything that strikes you, just odd comments would be fine. So when you watch it can you make some notes. I was in the 12 Pins with a note pad in the week you should have seen the looks I got; although, that said it really helped.

  264. London says:

    Ave that is fine so long as I am able to finish it tomorrow. I will try but if Jonjon has a go then the odds of success are greater.

  265. London says:

    Actually you know the name I like it’s “Lon” it’s quick it’s easy and it works for me.

    Not sure about Lonny or Donny but Lon sounds fine.

  266. avenell says:

    Everytime I go to the pub to watch the footie,I come out and the game is a blur.. I wondered how you did such a detailed match report.. haha that’s dedication..

    Right.. jonjon and me do pre match.. 🙂 one … you do the post match one London..

    okay jonjon?

    I like the name london..

  267. London says:

    I will try, I am not promising but as I said make some notes and send them to me by email.

  268. avenell says:

    Yes mate .. no problems..

    I have sent you a quickie (e mail)..

  269. avenell says:

    I will always cover anyway.. I can write crap all day.. I normally do. 😉

  270. Wrighty7 says:

    Fuck off Avenell……………..;)

  271. avenell says:

    haha fuck off wrighty..

  272. Wrighty7 says:

    Big Raddy,

    If you about mate HELLOOOOOOO! I missed yours earlier mate!

  273. Wrighty7 says:


    Hows tricks buddy?

  274. avenell says:

    Not bad mate.. I said earlier your blogs going well you get a nice number of hits now..

    you had over 12,000 on that top of the blogs thing today well done buddy..

  275. avenell says:

    arsenal are back level in the reserve game!!

  276. Wrighty7 says:

    Cheers mate.

    A lot to do with it is being on Newsnow and sites like that.

    Have you tried getting on Goonernews and Arsenal News yet?

  277. avenell says:

    They wanted us to get through the first 3 months this is our third now.. We have had 5,000+ comments in 2 months.. about 2,000 mine lol.. but I think it’s going well considering..

  278. Wrighty7 says:

    Yes mate you are doing well.

    Its easy to start a blog but its difficult to keep it going.

    When you get on those sites your blog will be seen by a wider audience and you will get a lot more people on here.

  279. London says:

    Ave can you remember who Sylvestre scored against?

  280. avenell says:

    he scored in the 4-4 against the Spuds..

  281. avenell says:

    Do you like my new irish avater? >>>>>

    wordpress signed me out.. lol

  282. Wrighty7 says:

    ‘Ello London

  283. avenell says:

    It’s easier now we share the writing mr wright.. problem I have now is I don’t know who’s writing what my co-writers have fucked off lol

    I try to stay around all day as my work involves the computer and I work from home.. So I can always have a chat.. keeps the blog going until the next blogger pops in..

  284. London says:

    Hello Wrighty

  285. avenell says:

    haha arsenal 2-1 up 90 mins gone.. 🙂

  286. Wrighty7 says:

    Ha ha!

    How many writers do you have now mate?

  287. avenell says:

    3-1 arsenal through..

  288. Wrighty7 says:

    Have that you Spud bastards! LOL

  289. avenell says:

    It was mainly me because jj has been a bit busy, jonjon has done a few but london has jumped on board and shown us up.. he wrote this one..

  290. Wrighty7 says:

    Anyway, I’m off.

    Night pals.

    Avenell, do me a favour and say hello to Big Raddy for me please mate.

    Good morning all,
    as the streams were so bad for the WBA game,I watched a rerun of the whole match on Arsenal TV. Not taking anything away from the result,which actually proved vital with Villa losing,in all honesty we really beat a very poor side,who hadn’t an incling as to how to defend.3 goals as we know could have been 6,and on balance i hope confidence is restored,but i have lingering doubts.Almunia was again twice at sea with crosses,and I always have my heart in my mouth when he goes for a cross or corner.his shot stopping is good,but overall I feel that is a position we could strengthen.Sagna and clichy had better games and Denilson was tidy,did his job well,but I still feel improvement is required.Song and Eboue,just shouldn’t feature,they made some WBA players look good,and although Eboue creates good position when on the attack,his end product is comical.I thought Bedntner used intelligence and sprayed the ball about well,and maybe his brace will restore his scoring ability against chances he misses.Arshavin,is quality but he obviously isn’t quite fit yet.Nasri is playing better,but he could be falling into the Hleb category by taking one pass to many,when we know he is more than capable of shooting well.Djorou was awful in the first half,and it shows how we miss Gallas when he is not in the side,and Toure just seems to be playing like his old self,just to pick up another injury.Ramsey,seems to have lost it,since the Cardiff away game,but he is young.Wilshere having played last night for the youth team,shows he won’t feature this season in the first team.Diaby,I still like,but what is his best position?.We have a tough game against Burnley coming up,they have taken a few big scalps,therefore they shouldn’t be under estimated and then Roma 48 hours later.

    I am trying to be realistic,not negative,but we are still at least 3 experienced short.Theo might play on Sunday,but he has been out for 3 months,but Eduardo should fit in quite wellif selected.

    I will take a peek in the ladies so to speak, catch you later ave if you have a busy day..

    I bet peaches is having a fab time, her Gran, 100, that is just amazing, Happy 100th Birthday Granny peaches 🙂

  318. avenell says:

    I was going to say that but it’s not until sunday. I suppose the queen doesn’t have to work sundays unlike us blog writers..
    Did I mention that we do all this for nothing.. Oh perhaps I did, I like to milk it.. lol

  319. rico01 says:

    woops – peaches did write it was sunday, maybe my eyes are going aswell 😦

  320. avenell says:

    It means you will have to jolly well come back on again on sunday!! When I’ll be working on here 😉 Okay I’ll shut up now!! 🙂

  321. rico01 says:

    ave – annoyingly, i have to go for lunch with the inlaws, and will miss the game as they don’t get Setanta, annoying eh. Hopefully when we get back I will get some me time to come on after we have thrashed Burnley – have to back before it starts to get dark anyway for the chickens to be tucked up safe 🙂

  322. avenell says:

    We shall celebrate together then.. 🙂

    Do you get paid to go and see the outlaws? I swerve all that..lol

    You are my family on here my roadsters.. 😉

  323. rico01 says:

    If I did ave, trust me, I would give up my wages 😉

    Did you heat that Becks is staying with Milan until the end of the season, then back to Galaxy and then back to Milan and so on, apparently he has funded the move himself to ensure he plays football and keeps himself fit. Credit to him, I know many dont like him, but i think he is the model footballer, he had ‘that’ one bad incident with England, but learned from it. More than that can be said for many of ‘today’s’ players

  324. avenell says:

    He made one serious balls up signing for the yanks, he wanted the money and he should honour his contract. He has been slagging the galaxy off indirectly for a month..

    oops we don’t agree 😦

  325. rico01 says:

    He is doing both ave, and playing for both – now thats dedication 😉

    And we dont disagree, you just disagree with me, and I am right 😉

  326. avenell says:

    He tried everything to worm out of the LA contract though..

    Still at least he stops flamini playing.. 🙂

  327. rico01 says:

    stop trying to have the last word, you are wrong 😉

    Flamini and Hleb made dreadful decisions to leave us, fate plays its part yet again 😉

  328. rico01 says:

    Off for a while – ketchup later 😛

  329. raif says:

    even tho it was few hours ago lol

  330. raif says:

    incase its still a little dead in here when somone else comes along

  331. rico01 says:

    raif – how are you doing my friend, i have missed you… Hope you and all yours are just fab 😛

    Back shortly, off to lock up the chickens 😉

  332. kelsey says:

    Evening all,

    has a very busy day,a bit personal,but will be around over the weekend.

  333. rico01 says:

    I feel like I am a part of one of the old real african tribes – its fondly known as the

    wherethefuckarewealltribe 😛

  334. rico01 says:
