Karim Benzema? Pah! Arsenal already have a striker who next season won’t stop ‘till he gets enough.

By Irishgooner.

I’ll be honest – I never thought Arsenal would sign Karim Benzema but when I heard the rumours I wanted to believe them.

Benzema is a name everyone will hear about for years to come regardless of him starting out in Ligue 1 – so too did Zinedine Zidane.

Anyway, I digress, he not signing for Arsenal is like a bullet through my heart so I resort to my default mode for anyone who doesn’t sign for the most wonderful of clubs – “He’s not good enough anyway”, so he can just beat it.

Regardless of whether Arsene Wenger sells or keeps Emmanuel “Beyonce” Adebayor, Arsenal don’t need a new striker. The attacking threat of Arsenal is perhaps the best of any in the English league – should they all remain fit.

Remember the time we had Henry, Pires, Ljungberg, Wiltord and co. barrelling down on goal? Next season can just be as good.

What other team can boast the options of Cesc Fabregas, Tomas Rosicky, Samir Nasri, Robin van Persie, Theo Walcott, Eduardo, Carlos Vela and, for the time being, Emmanuel Adebayor?

I didn’t even list the stranger from Moscow, Andrey Arshavin.

However, none of them next season will be Arsenal’s top scorer – not through injury, or bad fate, or Arsenal been rubbish – no, simply they will be outshone by one man.

Nicklas Bendtner!

You are not alone in thinking I have lost it. Bendtner is one of those marmite players who you either love or hate – however it isn’t that black or white.

At the start of last season, Bendtner started out as fourth choice for the club, not even knowing whether he had a career in North London. His performances reflected this – they were inconsistent and at times he was lazy.

Then there was a change – Adebayor angered the fans and then he got injured. Around the same time it seemed Bendtner had a long, hard look at the man in the mirror. He knew and admitted that he wasn’t good enough. With Adebayor out he took his chance.

Pulling his socks up Bendtner gave it his all on the field – chasing down lost causes, something Adebayor didn’t.

He stayed onside – something Adebayor didn’t.

He found himself in great positions in and around the box – something Adebayor didn’t.

The one thing he didn’t do too often was find that finishing ball – the goal. But they are in him, his finishes against Dynamo Kiev, West Brom and Bolton can’t be learned.

The one against Dynamo showed off his control (that is often lacking), West Brom showed his heading abilities while against Bolton at the Emirates he showed his heart to get in at the back post at a time when Arsenal couldn’t buy a goal.

What Bendtner needs is a cool head, not to panic when things aren’t going right. He needs Eduardo da Silva to be beside him – the Crozilian oozes patience and coolness that’ll rub off on those around him.

Mark my words, coming into World Cup year, Nicklas Bendtner will want to prove himself for a high flying Denmark. He will be dangerous next season.

It may sound off the wall but Arsenal’s pink boot wearing forward could be the second highest scorer in next season’s EPL when you take into account the talent he has giving him service and indeed the talent he himself possesses.

  1. avenell says:

    Thanks Irish .. That is a excellent piece (as always)

    I only put it up quickly so if there is any problems you see let me know..

  2. rico01 says:

    Irish – I don’t know whether to say great post (as it is) or great use of Jacko titles – either one, top notch 😛

    However, I wish I had your faith in Nikki 😦

  3. Irishgunner says:

    Cheers ha ha

    I’ve been listening to Wacko all week – need to give it a break now I think 🙂

    It all looks fine Avenell.

    Rico – Its okay, at the end of next season he’ll have 25 plus goals to his name so you can have the faith I have then 😀

  4. avenell says:

    After the Burley game in the CC, I wanted to kill Bendtner. But he worked hard and he won me around.. I just hope he gets his chances over Ade (The first choice striker)..

  5. rico01 says:

    I will hold you to that Irish

    My money is on our top scorer being Arshavin, and then
    Chamakh 😉

  6. Irishgunner says:

    Eduardo then Bendtner 😉

  7. rico01 says:

    Ade won’t be with us ave 😉

  8. Rasputin says:

    Well done Irish – I hope Nik reads it because all he needs is confidence and as you say – a bit of composure. Ade would not have scored any of the goals AA got against pool because he does not have the technical ability. Nik has more ability and works harder. Rather as AW said last season was Theo’s chance to shine, so this may be Nik’s turn to step up. I’m backing him for 15 goals or more this season…..

  9. Irishgunner says:

    Talking of the Liverpool game Rasp – Nikki B scored a lovely goal that evening – think it was just outside the box – and the linesman incorrectly ruled it offside 👿

    Bendtner will have learnt a lot last season, 25 plus in all competitions.

  10. rico01 says:

    Why don’t we have a competion – goals per player for the season – nearest gets two weeks full board in a lovely area of Cornwall for free – and first pasty is on ave 😛

  11. Rasputin says:

    I’d like to line up Nik and JD and give them both an injection of Keown style grit. They both need to be more mean and ruthless. Our boys are too sweet 😦

  12. Rasputin says:

    I’m off for a bit – catch up later 😉

  13. Irishgunner says:

    Put Walcott in your list too Rasp

  14. rico01 says:

    Add most of them to that list Irish

  15. JonJon says:

    bendtners crap

  16. Irishgunner says:

    Yeah Rico – except Ramsey, that kid has bit in him.

  17. JonJon says:

    only joking..a little blast from the past….

    good post irish…

    ive warmed to nikki and i think he’s gonna make it….

    come on nikki…do it for arsenal…this is your season my son fuck adebayor

  18. Irishgunner says:


  19. Irishgunner says:

    😆 Jon Jon

    I am certain that Bendtner will make, he has the positioning, his touch is getting better all he needs is the goals. (And the muppets in the fans to stop jeering him before he’s even on the pitch :evil:)

  20. avenell says:

    BREAKING NEWS… still no one has put an offer in for Denilson..

  21. rico01 says:

    Do you really expect someone to then ave …..??

  22. Irishgunner says:

    Why, are we selling Denilson?

    He’s the next Gilberto Silva.

  23. JonJon says:

    why on earth not ave…..he was the PLs best midfielder last year…hes worth at least 30mil


    once he starts hitting the net he’ll be one hell of a striker

  24. rico01 says:

    I really must be missing something in this wonderful game called football – I wouldn’t shed a tear if we sold Nik and Denilson..

    Best I take an interest in a different sport …

  25. Irishgunner says:

    That’s what I’m hoping for anyway Jon Jon.

  26. avenell says:

    I never went overboard on rating Gilberto.. I always thought he was a decent player when he used to get stick from a lot of Arsenal fans.. then he broke his back, we had a bad run.. Then when he came back he was the best thing since sliced bread..

    I still see him as a decent player, possibly the weakest link in the invincibles though.. relied on the others around him.. or complimented them..

    Flamini is a better player than Denilson or Gilberto imo..

  27. rico01 says:

    Gilberto in his prime for me ave, any day of the week, he seemed to stop nearly everything from going passed him – his weekness though was his passing..

  28. avenell says:


    Bergkamp, Henry, Campbell, Ljungberg, Pires, Vieira, Lauren, Lehmann, Toure, I’ll leave out the left back.. 🙂 and Gilberto..

    That side was crap in the CL.. why? where were the weak links?

  29. Irishgunner says:

    Oh to have Paddy and Petit in the middle of the field again…. What Arsene did was start out too big and create too many expectations – now anything short of Paddy and Petit isn’t good enough.

  30. rico01 says:


    No doubt you are going to tell me, but I liked Gilberto, yes he was no Paddy or Petit, but he was a whole lot better than the poop we have to choose from now – that’s why I would rather have him over Denilson and Flamini – they were the two you named…

  31. Irishgunner says:


    Good man Fabio – almost as good as manager as Il Trap 😉

  32. rico01 says:

    Irish – Thats good to read, I like Fabio, but don’t tell ave he will throw some negative stats at me 😉

  33. Roger says:

    Well I for one would still much rather have seen Benzema up the front next season than Bendtner!
    But then again I’d take most players over Mr ‘I-should-play-every-game-yet-can’t-hit-an-open-net’.

  34. Irishgunner says:

    😆 Rico

    Capello is a top manager, so great Madrid fired him after he won the league – they are an odd shower.

    Ireland vs England would be great, Trapattoni vs Capello …. obviously Ireland would win.

    Speaking of which Stephen Ireland is meant to be back for Ireland – woohoo, a decent midfield player 😀

  35. rico01 says:

    Another good midfielder, wouldnt mind him alongside Cesc 😉

    Surely Irish, a draw 😛

  36. rico01 says:

    Talking of Madrid and that league win, Reyes came on and I just knew what would happen – he was such a talent, if he could have hardened up a bit and stuck with us he would have out shone the winker 😉

  37. Irishgunner says:

    No, no we’d win – we have a better keeper 😉

  38. rico01 says:

    Ah, now you do have a point there, unless of course our very own Spanglish keeper is available for England for that match 😉

  39. Irishgunner says:

    And if Henry had left him alone….

    As AW would say he didn’t have the “mental strength”

  40. London says:

    Good post Irish, an interesting point of view and one I share, Bendner should kick on from the experience he gained last season and if he is leading goal scorer I see no reason why he won’t be regarded as first choice striker.


    I have been reflecting on yesterday’s discussion. If you had to put it in a title do you think it would be fair to call it “How much influence does Wenger have over the players’ wages?”

  41. Irishgunner says:

    😆 Rico “Spanglish”

    Actually Ireland have too many good keepers like Given, Kenny, Kiely, Westwood and now McDermott Arsenal’s newest – it does seem unfair 😉

  42. rico01 says:

    And he ‘lacked a little bit physically’

  43. Irishgunner says:

    Glad you agree London, I hope he makes it, he has the arrogance, the belief, the skill just needs the composure now.

    Rico – ha ha you know what AW is going to say before he even says it

  44. rico01 says:

    It’s ok Irish, England have James, Robinson, Carson, Green, James, James James and James !!!!

  45. avenell says:

    Hi Roger.. sorry for the delay you are free to blog now..

  46. avenell says:

    Roger was on at 3.31 if you want to see his comment..

  47. Irishgunner says:

    You know what I think when I see those names Rico…. “dodgy keeper”.

    If England had a really solid goalkeeper ye would have a very good team – good defence, good midfield, goodish forwards.

    Ireland just have a world class goalkeeper and after that some decent, hard working lads.

  48. kelsey says:

    Wacko post…..irish ?

    welcme Roger are you related to the Dodger

  49. avenell says:

    London .. sounds okay to me matey.. 🙂

  50. rico01 says:

    ave – I looked behind and I didnt see anyone waiting, sorry Roger, but hello to you and I have someone on my side this afternoon 😛

  51. rico01 says:

    I reckon you are right there Irish, just hasnt been the sam since Spunky 😉

  52. Irishgunner says:

    I got a bit carried away there in the old Michael Jackson tribute didn’t I Kelsey?

  53. Irishgunner says:

    I would have carried Benzema from Lyon to London, Roger if it meant getting him but its not to be so Bendtner will do.

  54. Rasputin says:

    Where’s Roger gone – was he expecting a backlash?

    I seem to remember ave not being Niks’s biggest fan and I found him very frustrating 18 months ago, but the desire, hard work and picture with his pants down has really won me over 🙂

  55. Rasputin says:

    Irish – so you think Bendy and Eddy is a better combination than Pinkie and Persie?

  56. Irishgunner says:

    “picture with his pants down has really won me over” 😆 – that was all a fix mind 😉

  57. Irishgunner says:

    Definitely Rasp – Bendtner is good at holing up the ball and he can head the ball so he could be a good foil for Eduardo next season.

    Not sure really where to put RvP in all this.

  58. Irishgunner says:

    *holding up the ball

  59. avenell says:

    Irish your first email has just come through.. lol..

    Hi-tech stuff between Ireland and Cornwall. http://www.celticconnections.slow.eu

  60. rico01 says:

    I just have this feeling that if Ade stays, he will be one of the first names on the sheet – bt thankfully I also have a feeling he will go 😉

  61. rico01 says:

    Off for a while – see you soon

  62. Irishgunner says:

    😆 Avenell that took its time

  63. London says:

    Hello Rico

    I agree that if Adebayor stays he will be one of the first names on the team sheet, although, I would add that if he scores a lot of goals he will have earned the right to stay there; but, if he doesn’t, and this is where I seem to differ with most on this channel, Adebayor will find himself on the bench watching Bendtner fulfil Irish’s prediction.

  64. London says:

    Oh well that chased everyone away.

  65. avenell says:

    I don’t disagree with that London.. Just the speed when it will sink in to Mr Wenger OBE’s head that he isn’t first choice.. I bet he could go 10 – 15 games without a goal before he gets benched or gets a mysterous hamstring injury..

  66. Irishgunner says:

    I’m back and I agree with you agreeing with me London 😉

  67. Irishgunner says:

    Avenell – I’d be shocked if Adebayor was still around to sit on the bench to be honest.

  68. avenell says:

    The hamstring injury was my disclaimer.. I can’t see him playing second fiddle to Bendtner.. toys out of pram first.. Then he will be a good boy just before the transfer window..

  69. London says:

    I think I continue putting myself through this Adebayor conversation because I can’t see him going anywhere.

    Wenger was unhappy with Adebayor’s antics this time last season and even took the unusual step of criticising a player while he was still at the club. I seem to remember he said that he thought that Adebayor had been disruptive, or something like that. My view is that Wenger has had to bite his lip putting up with him being offside so much while waiting for Eduardo to return….He is back, Bendtner has improved…I am still convinced that Wenger won’t take any nonsense from him this season; if he plays up, I hope he finds himself on the bench after the second game….Adebayor to Wenger…if you don’t play me I will leave….Wenger to Adebayor…is that a threat or a promise.

  70. kelsey says:

    Same old rumours going around about Rosicky being a coke head and that’s why he hasn’t kicked a football for over a year..
    I heard it was Arsene 🙂

  71. avenell says:

    Anyone just noticed… all the smilies have changed faces.. 😉 😎 🙂

  72. avenell says:




  73. avenell says:


  74. kelsey says:

    London me old china,

    that is exactly what i said about ade yesterday here on this channel.AW is cool about the whole situation and has told Ade to earn his money or he will be dropped.However if an offer does come in for 20+ (which i doubt) he will go and the money will be used for defensive cover,because we just haven’t got the quantity or quality for a long forth coming season.

    By the way,I read on some blog that cesc had changed his agent.I thought it was Darren dein am I right ?

  75. kelsey says:

    avenell at 5.20,

    are those the signs to get to your house when one approaches Cornwall.

  76. avenell says:

    He dropped an agent a couple of years ago.. not sure if that was Darren Dein or he went with him.. interesting..

  77. Irishgunner says:

    Arsene is the drug dealer 😯

  78. avenell says:

    These are the signs to my house.. ➡ 😎 lol..

  79. Irishgunner says:

    New smilies 8)

  80. kelsey says:

    No Irish,

    Arsene is on prozac as the board won’t give him any money so he is snorkling 😉

  81. kelsey says:

    My last smiley looks like Dr,Hook. 😉

  82. Irishgunner says:

    Poor Arsene has to watch them prescription drugs – look what happened to Wacko 😯

  83. Irishgunner says:

    Ha ha Kelsey it looks more like one of my cats – she only has one eye 😉 her name be Captain Jack Sparrow

  84. London says:

    Hello Kelsey

    Thank for telling me that I beginning to think I was the only who could see it 👿

  85. avenell says:

    It would be good to see Arsene leading his team out at Wembley doing a moonwalk though.. 🙂

  86. London says:


    This looks more like a sunburnt pig with a grin.

  87. London says:

    That is hilarious Ave

  88. Irishgunner says:

    I think we saw enough of Arsene’s dancing last season – talk about embarrassing dad at a wedding 😳

  89. avenell says:

    haha as my old nan used to say.. “little things please little minds”…

    “and little trousers fit little behinds”..

  90. rico01 says:

    Hey you all, has anyone googled Avenell Road recently?

    Its quite funny 🙂

    As are the smileys – how would you know about small trousers ave 😉

  91. Irishgunner says:

    I don’t like the new 😳 it doesn’t glow like the old one 😦

  92. London says:

    On a completely different subject, a long time ago I was introduced to a man at Arsenal called Martin; he came to football with us every week for a while. He was a grave digger and had three children, two twin boys about 8 and a daughter. He used to bring the twins to the games, we would smuggle them in through the turnstiles and lift them up when we scored. We used to joke, is Martin coming this week and someone else would say which Martin? and someone would say, the one that digs graves and another would say which one is that? and another would say the one with twins and another would say which one….Martin, Martin for fuck sake, anyway onto the point of this riveting drama if anyone is still reading, Martin was such an Arsenal fan that he called his daughter Lanesra, which impressed the rest of us at the time.

  93. rico01 says:

    London – re your 4.38

    IF Ade is still here, Arsene will more than likely chose Ade and RvP to start most games if they are fit, and like you I agree that if he gets out the traps early and starts scoring for fun then no-one really can complain. But Arsene sadly doesnt seem to know when to make a change when things aren’t going right, either in his first team selection or when making substitions.

    I hope the pre season games give everyone a chance so to speak and we start the season with the two strikers who have scored the most goals…


  94. avenell says:

    Rico we are nearly as famous as the Road itself now.. 🙂

    Re trousers : About as much as you do about Hot Pants.. lol..

    We need a missing persons widget for London..
    And a lonely hearts one for me.. 😳

  95. kelsey says:

    You don’t mean Martin the grave digger from Highgate ?

  96. kelsey says:

    The Martin with a limp

  97. Irishgunner says:

    I hate the look on John Terry’s face!!

  98. kelsey says:

    The Martin the grave digger from highgate,with a limp and two labradors.

  99. rico01 says:

    London – that’s a great tale, I hop she doesn’t get called Lane for short, especially with ‘that’ club not far away 😉

  100. London says:

    You made me jump there kelsey…he was from East Finchley

  101. kelsey says:

    Don’t know him 😉

  102. kelsey says:

    FINCHLEY CENTRAl …. The New Vaudeville Band –

  103. avenell says:

    My mates is a grave digger, he lives at the bottom of Rasputins mountain.. Dan the digger man.. If you need a grave digger anytime london..

    Have Kubota will travel.. 🙂

  104. London says:


    No longer am I alone in trying to convince all you non believers on this channel, I have an ally, an unexpected ally in Kelsey no less. I refer you to his post at 5:24 please notice the words of our great leader, that’s Arsene not Kelsey 😉

  105. peachesgooner says:

    rico – your 5.53 – clearly the most sensible comment made about ade starting 🙂

    I have a feeling Nicki Boy may just surprise a few people this season.

  107. peachesgooner says:

    Irish – a wonderfully wacko filled post and you’ve masked your disappointment incredibly well 😆

    I’m with you on Nikki pink boots – love him 😛

  108. JonJon says:

    hi guys…busy day at work today so had to nip in and out….was reading through though….just couldnt post…

    london…it definately didnt compute!!!!!

    ave…the week link in the invincibles was gilberto and lauren which is why we were crap in the CL…athough gilberto was a gentleman and a true pro….but i always prefered edu…

    flamini was better than gilberto…gilberto was better than denilson…but denilson is worth 30mil and is better than alonso, essien gerrard…red rum, mohammed ali, santa claus and his holyness the pope…..

    the smilies…shit..i was just getting the hang of the old ones…

  109. peachesgooner says:

    Hi LRV – sorry to keep you waiting, you’re free to blog now

  110. rico01 says:

    Thanks peaches 😛

    Ave – in my day, i had hot pants – but the kids sizes 😉

    London, London, London 😛

  111. avenell says:

    Your on the ball Peaches the email hasn’t come through yet..

  112. rico01 says:

    JJ, but Gilberto did ok in 2006 😉 I promise not to mention him again 😦

    Bring back the old smilies, I haven’t worked the new ones out yet 😦

  113. rico01 says:

    Hi LRV – I am not a huge fan of Nikki, but if he does surprise me, trust me, I will be very very happy 🙂

  114. kelsey says:

    If i was a Danish International, and played for one of the greatest sides in the world,and was regularly in and out of the team,getting barracked by a large section of the crowd,the last thing I would wear are pink boots.In other words drawing attention to myself.But give Nic his due,his game got better towards the end of the season,but having said all that I expect Eduardo and RVP to start in a 4-4-2 formation, with Nic and ade breathing down their necks or alternating.

  115. Irishgunner says:

    “a wonderfully wacko filled post and you’ve masked your disappointment incredibly well” – A pun on the word “masked” there Peaches, what with it been Wacko Jacko tribute blog and all 😉

    LRV – He’ll only surprise the likes of Rico who has yet to grasp his full worth to the Arsenal 😀

  116. rico01 says:

    ave – i have my name in google, rico is now famous 😛

  117. Irishgunner says:

    I think the boots were more off-red than pink 😉

  118. rico01 says:

    Cheeky Irish 😉

    Spot on kelsey – his pink boots were a crazy choice, i think he thought they made him perky 😀

  119. Irishgunner says:


    Keano is at it again – buying ex-Manchester United and Irish players.

    are you looking for an argument,as it so happens pink is one of my favorite colours for tops and I even have a pair of Vans pink/black chef check slip ons,but then again I am not a professional footballer 🙂

    Anyone count how many MJ titles I managed to sneak in to the post. There is an imaginary prize for the winner 🙂

  124. rico01 says:

    Its lovely Irish, I started listening to him and the J5 when I was a pretty young thing – now I am old a haggered 😉

  125. avenell says:

    We don’t always disagree Rico do we?.. 😉

  126. LRV says:


    The dance is hilarious. Must be the reason why Fiorentina so desperately want him.

  127. Irishgunner says:

    I remember listening to MJ, New Kids on the Block, Take That and Kylie when I was small.

  128. kelsey says:

    4 titles irish plus billie jean gallas 😉

  129. Irishgunner says:

    Nope more than that avenell,

    I cheated a little on “Stranger in Moscow” but it still counts 😉

    That celticconnections site that I made up… 2 people have clicked on it.. so I just checked it out and it actually puts you on a site lol…

    What are the chances of that ‘appening?

    Cheers LRV thanks for popping in.. Where are you from buddy?

  132. rico01 says:

    LRV – You are so right, why else would they want him 😉

    Actually, I would miss him though – I remember the time that he was a quality RB 😉

    Irish, thats two titles in two comments – how an i doing 😉

  133. Irishgunner says:

    Not “Bad” Rico 😀

  134. LRV says:

    From Peckham, ave.

    There was a second dance, wasn’t there? I remember that poor Ashavin did not know how to celebrate with him. He just stood there.

    Ricoh, Indeed he was a great RB; could still be, mind you.

  135. rico01 says:

    Irish 😛

    Cheers LRV..

    I thought you missed that one Rico.. Is that a railway line by the way?

  146. Irishgunner says:

    *Then not did

    I should start proof reading my comments

  147. avenell says:

    Irish if we could swerve that word.. My blood pressure is already rising.. 👿

  148. kelsey says:

    my comment didn’t come through as i just realised my new dog’s name is a banned word,but it’s true.

  149. Irishgunner says:

    Why is your blood pressure rising Avenell?

  150. avenell says:

    Fancy calling your dog c***.. Kelsey..

  156. Irishgunner says:

    Short just the one Kelsey,

    I’ll give you a clue – Henry, Pires and co.

  157. London says:

    For a no news day the channel certainly has got a lot of posts…..nice one Irish.

  158. Irishgunner says:

    The name that rhymes with Jedro is also a brand of dog food. *useless fact*

  159. Irishgunner says:

    Thanks London – I think the new smilies caused quite the stir as well 😀

  160. kelsey says:

    Remember the Time

  176. JonJon says:

    everyone….we shouldnt take the piss out of the smilies….

    the news of the world will read this and it will be bad publicity for wordpress…


  177. avenell says:

    I’m not sure if Irish would appreciate being treated as a gift.. But she is a gift for everyone so if we could have a whip round for that meal.. 🙂

  178. JonJon says:

    for fuck sake these smilies are shit..

    thats it i aint doin em no more..

  179. peachesgooner says:

    Fair point Mr Avenell – did you have a nice day … 🙂

  180. peachesgooner says:

    JonJon I agree – ave can’t you write a letter to someone and say we’d like the others back …..

    Did everyone get them or are we special……

  181. JonJon says:

    yeah were special….special needs…

    we are in special need of a new midfielder….

  182. avenell says:

    Peaches we own a site each.. you write the letter.. I’m getting quite attached.. who’s in the house? ➡ avenell.

    ❗ don’t like the 😳 though.. 😦

  183. peachesgooner says:

    Do you think they’ll work in a widget – I’m only miffed cos I just learnt the others and can’t remember these – then we could have a ‘Smiley Library’…….. 🙂

    Shall I try it on MY site then…… is there one for raspberries 😛 😛 😛 😛 P 😛 😛 😛

  184. peachesgooner says:

    ……just cos I havn’t phoned today….its not like its your birthday or anything…….

    JonJon – I don’t think the new midfielder will be sorted until ade gets sorted……just a hunch ➡

  185. avenell says:

    Ssshhhh .. don’t talk about it.. 😦 I have had enough distractions for one day.. I need to do some work tomorrow..

  186. JonJon says:

    cant we write a letter to complain about ade??

    i know…what an idea!!!!

    we’ll ring the police…thats it we’ll ring the police and tell them ades robbing 80k a week from arsenals coffers…

    theres gotta be enough evidence there that would put him away for 15-life!!!!

  187. avenell says:

    Reminds me of the old Smith and Jones stuff.. Living with an offensive wife… Walking on the cracks on the pavement, Wearing a loud jumper in a built up area.. lol

  188. JonJon says:

    or we could do one of those mcintyre undercover thingys…

    one of us should dress up real nice and draw up a fake contract and ‘tap’ ade up….

    we can say we are representing citeh we should offer him 300k a week to join city and film the meeting….

    we should also throw in a few mobile phones and some ice cream…….

    the chances are ade will make a total cock of himself and we show the film to wenger…

    abit like what that radio station did to reyes….

  189. Rasputin says:

    Morning Roadsters and Roosters….

    Big news of the day …. the new smileys are rubbish 😦

  190. peachesgooner says:

    Hi rasp

    I’ve been working hard to create a ‘Smiley Library’ in the side bar but they don’t come through as faces!!!!!!!

    Gonna see if I can get them onto the top bar…….

  191. rico01 says:

    Morning Roadies 🙂

    Off to have a peep around all the gossip..

  192. peachesgooner says:

    Morning rico – see if you can find the Fever Pitch compilation……..

  193. rico01 says:

    Hi Rasp & peaches

    Can’t believe how quiet the rumours are this morning

  194. Rasputin says:

    Hi rico,

    The slightly disturbing ‘rumour/report’ is the one from AA’s agent saying that he wants to go to Barca. I sincerely hope that we haven’t done a sly deal and put him on silly low wages…… if that is the case and he goes, we will ony have ourselves to blame.

    Top players deserve top wages….mediocre players don’t deserve £60-80K a week.

    We shouldn’t pay for potential, we should reward for end product!!!! …. rant over 😛

  195. rico01 says:

    I have found it on Amazon peaches £1.67 😛

    I have a feeling that’s not what you meant though 😉

  196. rico01 says:

    Pfffff – that was meant to be a smiling face, not a poke your tongue out face – I dont like these new smileys 😦

  197. peachesgooner says:

    I’ve made a Smiley Library but its at home at the moment 🙂 see if you can find it – I’ll move it when I get back 😉

  198. peachesgooner says:

    I’m gonna get in trouble for that 😥

  199. rico01 says:

    Rasp – Didn’t Arshavin sack his agent ? Its probably either old gossip from last season when he did say he would like a move to Barca, or just sour grapes from an unemployed agent 😉

  200. rico01 says:

    peaches – was your last for Rasp ? Hope so, as I wouldn’t have a clue 😉

  201. rico01 says:

    I never used to believe a word that was written in The Daily Star, but since having learned that it is PHW’s favourite newspaper I tend to believe their stories just a little more – who knows with this one


  202. Rasputin says:

    Rico – if the Inler story is true, I would tell him to stuff it….. We tried very hard to sign him last season and wasted a lot of time and energy in the process. What with the Ade nonsense, the protracted deal for Nasri and Inler, we got pretty stitched up.

    I completely agree with AW that we should try to get all the transfers sorted early but unfortunately footballl/business isn’t like that. I think he has already made what he perceives to be the most important signing and if nothing further happens, we will still be in better shape than last year and so he can be relaxed about things.

  203. rico01 says:

    I didn’t realise that Rasp, but reading the article he is after a move to the dippers, so maybe your right.

    Why did he not sign for us last year Rasp if we went to all that effort ?

  204. rico01 says:

    Bellamy is possibly on the move yet again….

    You guessed it – ‘Arry wants him !!

  205. Rasputin says:

    I don’t know the real truth. I know we wanted him and there were talks with the agent, but it looked like he decided that he just didn’t want to play for us (probably much more to it tho’) so b******cks to him – we are looking at better midfielders any way…..

  206. Irishgunner says:

    Morning all,

    Another slow news day then…

  207. Irishgunner says:

    Just read your link Rico

    “SWISS international Gokhan Inler last night urged Liverpool and Arsenal to battle for his signature.” – On your bike son! Rather have Denilson than this chancer.

  208. rico01 says:

    Fair enough Rasp, must admit i don’t know much about him, and now I shall not bother trying to find out – he is obviously another scum bag in the game of footie – 😉

    Next target please 🙂

    Morning Irish

  209. Rasputin says:

    Well said Irish – morning to you…. 🙂

    You have made my life very difficult you know…. I have been working on a post with a musical headline and now I’ve got to go back and get a minimum of 6 song titles in the text…. 😉

  210. Irishgunner says:

    Morning Rico and Rasputin.

    I sneaked in 9 MJ titles in my article Rasputin 😉

  211. London says:


    Where would I be without you on these slow days? What would I write? Who would I bounce off?

    Arshavin, do I detect that you think it would be unreasonable for him to still dream of going to Barcelona? I still get the feeling that if I was from St Petersburg and had no allegiance to either Barça or Arsenal then I would see Barça as the bigger club and therefore regard it as a more desirable destination. Would you agree?

  212. avenell says:

    Morning Roadsters..

    Rasp I have a post for the morning (not mine) I am going to put my name down now.. Is that okay?

  213. Irishgunner says:

    Colombian Footballer ‘Kills Abusive Fan’


    Bleedin ‘ell 😯

  214. Rasputin says:

    Hi London,

    Sorry to disappoint you but I don’t think we’re disagreeing 😛

    I can’t blame any player for wanting to play for Barca – that’s an understandable ambition. My point was that he had been complaining about the money we were paying him (reportedly!!!) and that his desire to go elsewhere may be increased by that fact alone….

  215. Rasputin says:

    Hi ave,

    Please go ahead boss 😉 – my post is nowhere near ready and is generic rather than topical. I can’t wait to dissect your every word 😆

  216. Irishgunner says:

    And I hate these new smilies!!

  217. Rasputin says:

    HaHa Irish…. I can’t compete with you…. I’ll just have try to keep coming up with new ideas to fox you 😛

  218. Irishgunner says:

    😆 Rasputin

    Arsenal have gone quite in the last few – odds on Arsenal.com declaring RvP’s new contract by the end of the week?

  219. rico01 says:

    Morning Ave & London

  220. peachesgooner says:

    Morning Irish – I got all 9….. 🙂

    No need to water in north london – someone just pulled the plug out 😛

  221. Irishgunner says:

    Morning Peaches – I thought you would get them 😉

    Morning Avenell and London also.

    It seems Derby are interested in Randall – would be a good move for him.

  222. London says:

    Hello all

    I am a bit confused, did AK 47 fire his agent or not?

  223. rico01 says:

    Its a bitter and twisted agent !!

  224. Irishgunner says:

    He “parted company” with Latcher two weeks ago saying he was going to represent himself.

    It was Arshavin’s official site I think.

  225. Irishgunner says:

    “Before anything else, Barcelona should make a formal offer,” Lachter told COM Radio.

    “Then we can sit down and speak.

    In all fairness that could be anyone – he never mentioned Arshavin.

  226. rico01 says:

    B’ham are still trying to get Paddy, it will be great to see him back in England – just wish he was ten years yonger and coming to us 🙂

  227. Rasputin says:


    Your link was the story that I was reacting to….. then everyone told me he had fired his agent so I felt a bit silly 😳

  228. rico01 says:

    Irish – don’t feel silly, i think there is still confusion over his agent – AA has said he has dispensed with his services, but I don’t know if it is is black and white anywhere 😉

  229. Irishgunner says:

    The Arshavin article is gone from Goal.com…


  230. Irishgunner says:

    Rico the problem I have with Arshavin’s “agent” is that he always seems to wanna be startin’ something 😉

  231. Evo in Oz says:

    gday all how goes it?

  232. Irishgunner says:

    Hiya Evo – Its a slow news day

  233. rico01 says:

    That’s a good report Irish, i said this morning before ave was awake that i thought it was a load of old tosh 😉

  234. rico01 says:

    According to a report in the Daily Mail, Bordeaux are willing to take the Switzerland defender from Arsenal for £5m. The article said: Bordeaux are ready to make a £5.2million move for Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos.

    The French club want the 24-year-old Switzerland defender as a replacement for former Charlton defender Souleymane Diawara, who joined Marseille this week.

    Former Gunners defender Martin Keown has tipped Senderos to come back stronger from a year-long loan at AC Milan last season.

    But he played only a bit-part and the Italian giants did not take up an option to make the deal permanent.

    Arsene Wenger may well see £5.2m as good business after signing the 6ft 3in centre-half from Servette for £2.5m six years ago.

  235. Irishgunner says:

    I can see Senderos leaving to be honest Rico – don’t see AW trusting him.

    AC Milan have signed Onyewu, the tall American CB – he looked decent during the Confed Cup.

  236. rico01 says:

    I wouldn’t blame him if he left – it s a shame for him that he had those torrid times during a few games..

  237. Irishgunner says:

    I always liked Big Phil apart from the errors but he is at the stage now where he will want to be first choice for a club.

  238. rico01 says:

    AC Milan have bagged themselves a good defender thn Irish, I wonder if we are going to get anothr one, or TV is the one ..

  239. Evo in Oz says:

    yep no new signings it seems, however it was great to get an early one in against the odds!

  240. London says:

    How ya doing Evo? Where do you think we need to strengthen?

  241. rico01 says:

    Melo rumour around again this lunchtime….

    Hi Evo – looking forward to tomorrow ? 🙂

  242. rico01 says:

    SSN’s has said we are interested in Blaise Matuidi, midfielder from St Etienne… He is only 5′ 9″

    Blaise Matuidi (born April 9, 1987 in Toulouse) is a French footballer of Angolan descent who currently plays as a midfielder for French Ligue 1 club AS Saint Etienne.

    Matuidi was born in Toulouse, to Angolan parents. He learnt his footballing trade at the famed Clairefontaine youth academy, as well as spending time at US Créteil. In 2004 he joined then Ligue 1 club Troyes AC, making over 60 league appearances, before moving to AS Saint-Étienne in 2007

  243. Evo in Oz says:

    any1 read the Gazidis interview?

    We all know Arsenal is very closed when it comes to discussing transfer business. All the same I know my readers would not forgive me if I didn’t ask. Now, you can tell me, or not tell me, and I think I know which one you’ll go with, can you hint at whether we going to see more players arrive and if so are those arrivals dependent on other players leaving to raise funds?!

    I’m sorry, but I’m going to continue in a rich tradition of obfuscation! It’s not that I wouldn’t want to be open with our fans but it really does affect our ability to successfully deal with player contracts and transfers during the close season.

    It creates a dynamic that can be difficult to manage and makes things more challenging to complete, so if everyone will just bear with us it gives us the best chance of success, when we get to the end of the transfer window, if we say as little as possible.

  244. Evo in Oz says:

    gday london,

    not bad thanx bro

  245. Evo in Oz says:

    yep Rico, i think im looking forward to a bollocking…

  246. Evo in Oz says:

    i think some white pommie ass might be getting a whipping!

  247. rico01 says:

    Ha ha Evo – you can dream I guess 😉

  248. Irishgunner says:


    Super Tom is running 🙂

  249. avenell says:

    Is that senderslug at the front? He must be getting lapped..

  250. Irishgunner says:

    😆 Avenell

    Lapped by Super Tomas Rosicky – I’m no pleased at the thought he could be back next season.

    Vermaelen looks like a bit of a brute doesn’t he?

  251. Irishgunner says:

    *so not no

  252. Irishgunner says:


    I f*&^ing kick the nuts off the prick – waste of air!!

  253. avenell says:

    yeah he is a biggy.. I thought he had the no3 on for a moment then I saw it was thirty something…. phew..

    Tommy Gun could have been back at the end of last season I heard, so let’s hope he is well into his training..

  254. rico01 says:

    That palyer in the grey top looks nothing like a footballer 😉

    TV looks a mean machine 🙂

  255. Irishgunner says:

    I think there is another photo of him wearing number 14 so I reckon they just gave them what clothes they could find although if he’s the same size as Walcott that’s a worry 😕

  256. rico01 says:

    oops, sorry i forgot to f5

  257. Evo in Oz says:

    yep i noted Senderos, Silvestre, Gallas, and sicknote at the training!

  258. Irishgunner says:

    A lot of the Youths of last year there too.

    Cesc, RvP, Nikki B didn’t seem to be there. Neither were any of our Africans.

  259. avenell says:

    a lot of the players who were invloved in the confed cup are given an extra couple of weeks off I think..

    Hi Evo by the way!!

  260. Evo in Oz says:

    yeah Cesc excused apparently, but none of the others in the photos!

  261. Irishgunner says:

    Walcott and Gibbs got more time off cos of U21 duty. Maybe the Africans get an extra day to come back.

    Perhaps RvP and Nikki B just happen not to be in any photos.

  262. Evo in Oz says:

    yeah true, there’s one or 2 faces i dont immediately recognise anyway, so they are probably there anyways

  263. Evo in Oz says:

    bed for me, no signings, no sleep…zzzzzzzzzzzz

  264. rico01 says:

    Night Evo

  265. kelsey says:

    great to see the boys back in training.

    The big test for Tomas will be when he kicks the ball,his foot doesn’t go with it 🙂 🙂

  266. kelsey says:

    just saw rvp on the beach chatting to ronaldo.

  267. kelsey says:

    why did my wife call the new puppy *edro. this is most annoying as he is so cute.He has already bitten the tv remote control to bits.demolished 8 toilet rolls and is on the lookout for more.

  268. Irishgunner says:

    Evening Kelsey,

    Sounds like …. err… a lovely pet.

    Suppose its easier than trying to keep three kittens out of car engines.

  269. avenell says:

    If it likes chewing things there are a few things on the beach that he could bite on..

  270. rico01 says:

    small things ave 😉

    hi kelsey

  271. Rasputin says:

    Irish – I just followed your link to the training ground pics…….. Germolene looks far from antiseptic and considerably bigger than tweetypie.

  272. Irishgunner says:

    That he does Rasputin – he looks tough as nails, Vidic MkII hopefully

  273. rico01 says:

    What does anyone think on the Matuidi story then ?

  274. Irishgunner says:

    It sounds like a Wenger but doesn’t it Rico?

  275. rico01 says:

    Written all over it Irish, he is a little un though, we need a bit of height and muscle in there 😦

  276. rico01 says:

    Off now, catch you soon

  277. kelsey says:

    Today’s lesson

    Daddy’s car in the woods?

    Little Johnny watched his daddy’s car pass by the school playground and go into the woods.Curious, he followed the car and saw Daddy and Aunt Jane in a
    passionate embrace.

    Little Johnny found this so exciting that he could hardly contain himself as he ran home and
    started to tell his mother.’Mummy, I was at the playground and I saw Daddy’s car go into the woods with Aunt Jane.I went back to look and he was
    giving Aunt Jane a big kiss, and then he helped her take off her shirt.Then Aunt Jane helped Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane…’

    At this point Mummy cut him off and said, ‘Johnny, this is such an interesting story, lets save the rest of it for supper time.I want to see the look on Daddy’s
    face when you tell it tonight.’

    At the dinner table that evening, Mummy asked little Johnny to tell his story Johnny started his story, ‘I was at the playground and I saw Daddy’s car go into the woods with Aunt Jane.I went back to look and he was giving Aunt Jane a big kiss, then he helped her take off her shirt.Then Aunt Jane helped
    Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane and Daddy started doing the same thing that Mummy and Uncle Bill used to do when Daddy was away on the oil rigs.’
    Mummy fainted!

    Sometimes you need to just shut the f##k up and listen to the whole story
    before you interrupt!

  278. Irishgunner says:

    Lachter denied that he had been sacked stating:
    “We have a contract; this contract will be finished in one and a half years. Until then, I am the manager of Andrey Arshavin.”
    Comments from Arshavin had suggested that Lachter’s role as the father of a newborn son was hindering his ability to travel to London, however, the agent disagreed:
    “First my baby was born on the 14th January and if you must know I wasn’t at home with my wife for most of her pregnancy. I spent eleven months working on this transfer. That means all this time, from the beginning to the birth, I was working on a daily basis on this transfer.
    “Secondly, it’s quite strange to hear because Andrey Arshavin doesn’t ask anybody about pregnancy or the newborn baby when he needs me in England and I’ve been there back and forth more than thirty times in the last year. I’ve spent my time, my knowledge, my professionalism and my own money.
    “It’s quite strange that this is the reason suggested that I now can’t fulfil my duties six months after my son is born and five months plus after the contract with Arsenal was signed.”
    Asked about whether he had received a letter from the Russian, Lachter continued:
    “He sent me a letter, absolutely. Listen, it’s like entering a contract with Arsenal or anybody else; there are obligations. If you think that you can just cancel this formal relationship between two parties only because of a newborn baby it’s…what can you say…well you can’t do it. That’s it. I’m his agent.”


    Can someone take his passport away or something…

  279. kelsey says:

    Blimey have you seen the pictures on Arse.com with the lads training.

    Eduardo has got a bit of a beer belly 🙂

  280. Irishgunner says:

    He had to do something on his time off Kelsey 😉

    Ha ha Rico cheeky

  285. rico01 says:

    Quite a few Brits have travelled Irish, The airlines have said that many bookings to the USA have been made – have they gone to the funeral or memorial do you know?

  286. Irishgunner says:

    The memorial Rico but they are bringing the coffin and putting it center stage.

    The funeral was strictly a family affair, apart from the coffin buzzing overhead.

    Apparently one billion people are watching it worldwide 😯

  287. JonJon says:

  319. Rasputin says:

    Hi folks, I’ve just been watching the MJ memorial service. Lionel Richie and Stevie Wonder were brilliant – Brooke Shields on the other hand was nauseating in the extreme!!! But an amazing production considering the timescale…

  320. raif says:

    woop woop people..

    hows you all doing??

    i heard were after some French Midfielder “No Suprise there”

    anyone know about him?

  321. JonJon says:

    evening rasp….

    i watched the majority of it but had to leave the room….im a mans man at the best of times but when youve got three women all beefing their eyes out around you….it tends to set you off….

    brooke shields was abit weak….but hey…if thats what he liked about her then im not judging him on it….

    hi raif…

    yeah apparently that blaze a weed fella was in london this morning…

  322. raif says:

  324. raif says:

    Heayyyy Ave.. 🙂

    yeah alls well thanks busy as hell as always lol.. we did take the little man with us and he Loved it.

    seeing him play in the water while he was in his blow up ring was a joy to watch. and but alot of kids to shame as most of them just cryed soon as their feet touched the water lol

  325. raif says:

    HAHAHA Diaby 2.0

    you can add that to the terminology.

    ( Diaby 2.0 )
    A player of phisical presence & stacher but only by Look. this kinda of player lacks all of the above, along with Zero passing ability

  326. avenell says:

    That’s good news .. get him booked in for some swimming lessons..

    Just checked out your you tube haha.. Your a bit loud with the snooring.. not as loud as me 🙂

  327. raif says:

    ohh yeah we are going to get the swimming lessons sorted out actully. as i dont want him to be one of them kids who ends up growing to the age of 12 and not know a thing about swiming lol…

    and yeah i am rather Loud when i sleep. so the missus says haha..

  328. avenell says:

    It’s about time you fired the old Blog of feelings up again ..

  329. raif says:

    Ave i think you might be right mate.

  330. raif says:

    Has anyone seen this before?

  331. avenell says:

    Good lad .. you got any idea’s?..

    What have you been doing hobby wise, no you tube, no blogging it’s not like you?

  332. raif says:

    well any free time i have had ive been either spending it watching dvds with the missus or wasting it away on the xbox live.. playing war games like Call of duty 4 and a new boxing game i got called fight night round 4.

  333. JonJon says:


    that blue 7 looks abit like tomas

  334. raif says:

    he got the biggest smack in the face from that throw lol

  335. avenell says:

    There was a pro player who used to do that throw in but it has been banned now, I think..

  336. raif says:

    Ivan Gazidis did a interview on Arseblog.

    has anyone read it by any chance?

  337. avenell says:

    Sorry Raif had a valet..

    No people have been talking about it, how did that site get an interview?

  338. raif says:

    i have no idea how that came about. i just found out right before i posted the comment on here.

  339. Evo in Oz says:

    morning all

  340. peachesgooner says:

    Morning all

    kelsey – let me know when you’re up and I’ll show you how to publish 🙂

  341. peachesgooner says:

    Anyone else think this is in poor taste…….


  342. peachesgooner says:

    Looks like the mellow one has signed for Juventus……

  343. rico01 says:

    Morning all

    peaches, just read your link, you are right, very poor taste..

    Shame about Melo if Juve have signed him, I honestly started to believe we would have the upper hand because of the Eboue and Senderos swap – 😦

  344. rico01 says:

    The Sun, claim that Wenger has now turned his attentions to St Etienne midfielder Blaise Matuidi.

    Matuidi, 22, said: “Playing for Arsenal would be fantastic but I can’t say anything about that yet.

    “Everyone knows their wonderful style of football,” he told the paper.

    Maybe this is the one AW is really after and the Melo rumours were just that, rumours

  345. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    Evening rico

    At least Le Gaffer is after someone of substance.

  346. rico01 says:

    Hi george

    It’s quite a sad state really, don’t know about you, but Arshavin apart it seems years since we have had a signing to excite us all.

    I know nothing about either Melo or Matuidi but just being linked to a player who plays for Brazil gets my hopes up.

    I think all this Newsnow and blogging is unhealthy for me 😦

  347. rico01 says:

    Thankfully a few ‘little cricket matches’ may distract me over the next week or two 😉

  348. peachesgooner says:

    Morning rico and george

    Another glorious summers day yuuuuuuuuuk 😦

    Are you 2 going to be glued to the cricket?

  349. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    rico yes. What’s the weather like over there. I know you aren’t in Cardiff, but have you got a forecast for today?

  350. kelsey says:

    NEW POST on the way.

    Be back later,have to see a man about plants, err sorry implants.

  351. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    evening peaches, yuuuuuuuuk does that mean its raining ):

  352. kelsey says:

    oh and good morning/evening everyone.

  353. rico01 says:

    I just wish the club would get out there, get a strong, tall athletic midfielder who is good in the air and with his tackle 😳

    A player who can break down the oppositions attack and defend well when needed, a gusty player who can make that last ditch tackle and help the defence – someone who can play his part in preventing us leaking goals – TV has come into the the defence, now lets get a midfielder to stop it getting to them …

    Then we are in with a real good chance to get back to winning a trophy or two 🙂

  354. peachesgooner says:

    Good luck kelsey – I’m going to post it now – or as long as it takes me 🙂

    Keep chatting until I give the word…….

  355. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    G’Day Kelsey

  356. rico01 says:

    mme, gusty player, i meant gutsy 🙂

  357. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    I’m told by the ladies that I have go tackle 🙂

  358. gnarleygeorge9 says:


  359. rico01 says:

    The weather is meant to be ok over the next few days in Cardiff George – I hope so, we need 5 X 5 days cricket, not on, off, on, off for rain :;)

  360. peachesgooner says:

    There is a NEW POST which I hope says it was written kelsey……press the Home button….

    george – maybe ‘go’ tackle is better 😳

  361. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    Really looking forward to this series. I’m with you on the weather. Hope we bowl 1st & get a couple of early scalps.

    P.S I’m not a big fan of these new look smileys
