SenderBramble to be the next to leave/Traore to be put in the shop window/Flamini unhappy/Robin loves us!

In whats been a slow news week there has been a flood of stories surrounding our club over the weekend.

Big Phil, Swiss Tony or Senderlump, whatever you want to call him has now become a target for Steve Bruce’s Sunderland. Senderslug has never really made the CB spot his own in his time at Arsenal and Wenger’s decision to let him leave to join Milan on loan with a view to make the deal permanent,  gave the impression Sir Arsene didn’t really see a future for him at the Emirates. But has that decision now changed? The fact that the Sendersaurous is still with us and the fact that we will lose 3 defenders for the frustratingly inconvienient ACN, suggests to me Wenger wont let Senderslow leave. Not this year anyway.

A player he may let leave on the other hand is our young, French explosive Fullback/Left Winger, Armand Traore. Birmingham has reportedly looked into the possibility of signing Traore on loan for next season. Troare his highly regarded at the Emirates, but with left backs at the club seemingly to be growing on trees recently, its hard to see how he fits in. With Clichy, Gibbs and now Thomas “The Verminator” Vera Lynne at the club, young Armand looks like he wont see the LB position his own for the entire duration of his career. Especially given the ages of Clichy and Gibbs,  Traore could be waiting for the next 10 years. So that leaves the LW position. Yet Wenger doesn’t do out and out wingers. Wenger likes that position to be filled by mobile, attacking, creative midfielders. With Rosicky, AK47, Nasri, Jacky, Merida, Vela, and Walcott all fighting for those positions where does that leave Troare. Plus, lets not forget what happened the last time Wenger tried to turn a decent Full Back into a winger???

I beleive Wenger is putting Traore in the shop window by repeatedly sending him out on loan. The youth academy is set up not only to provide us with our own talent who play the Arsenal way from a young age, but its also designed to make the club a profit.

Arsenal have much talent ranging from the 1st team all the way down towards the under 16’s. Yet the age difference between all the squads is less than 4 years in some positions. They all wont make it. They all cant make the spot their own. So what do we do? We pick the best ones, the cream of the crop and we sell the others on for profit. It’s the perfect business model and its what the system was designed to do.

Troare will have a few seasons on loan to gain experience obviously, but if he cant break his way into the 1st team, he will be sold. He’s in the shop window.

Fromer Arsenal dynamo Matty Flamini has reportedly spoke of his unhappiness at Milan. Flamini was on the bench for long spells last season and when was called upon, spent much of his time playing FB. He doesnt want to be in the same situation this season.  He’s on record as saying:

“I don’t want to play as a full-back, I am a midfielder. This year Milan will be strong in defence.”

We all know that Flamini misses us, and we miss Flamini. So maybe, just maybe, there’s a huge opportunity here for us to take him back.

Our very own chocolate-legged Boy Wonder has finally spoken about his decision to stay with Arsenal after a long and much protracted contract saga. According to some sections of the media, Robin turned down the chance to join clubs such as Juventus, Inter Milan, Chelsea and Man Shitty City. Turning down offers well over 100k a week to stay with us. Robin talked about his decision to stay with us and turn down the chance of more money.

“I made a list. I wrote on one side what I had. And I wrote down what was lacking. At Arsenal, Arsene Wenger values my contribution to the team, my fellow players show the same appreciation and everyone who works in the club is wonderful and so warm to me. Apart from all that I have a great connection with the supporters. I find it fascinating how they show their love for me as a player. My heart says that I cannot play in the shirt of another club for the next four years. Money has never been an issue in my career. When I signed my first contract at Arsenal, I was not on big money at all. Now the club have shown their appreciation. But it is not the money-side why I signed a new deal. All I want to feel is a bit of respect and a good relationship with everyone at the club. And that’s what I have here.”

Well played Robin. There is no doubt you are talented and you still have a long way to go , but I for one will support you in the hope you achieve your dream of the best player in the world. In a day in age where football is all about the money and loyalty is hard to come by, you have proved to me that you are Arsenal through and through. Unlike your dozy, lazy, greedy ,big mouth, whore, strike partner.

Have a good day Ave’s and Avette’s. Fingers crossed for some important announcements.

    I did’t know there was that much Arsenal news around..

  2. JonJon says:

    i work for the news of the world ave.. 😉

    i was up late last night and there was a few stories flying around so i thought id make a post..

    hows tricks this morning???

  3. JonJon says:

    plus i fancied having a play with the tools…like the quotes and the crossed out words…see it as an experimental post.. 😉

  4. avenell says:

    Jonjon’s White Post eh? Where is everyone today? I must confess I had a lay in….

    RICOOOOOO Wherefore Art Thou???

  5. JonJon says:

    shes probably on a bridge somewhere harrassing some goats… 😆

  6. kelsey says:

    Morning both,

    just attending to some really unimportant business on another channel.Should be back by Wednesday 😉

  7. avenell says:

    Morning Kelsey..

    I was reading this..

    It’s out of order.. Bentley should go out on his own more, then his missus wouldn’t see him getting punched..

  8. kelsey says:

    No time for Bentley ave.

    i was wondering why pennant was over here for about 5 weeks. now we know,looks like he got himself a good deal.

    Anyone see Katie Price interviewed by piers morgan,last night.She does tell some porkies.Didn’t here any mention of her liason with Simon Cowell,during her marriage.(oops, that’s a secret)

  9. JonJon says:

    morning kelsey…go easy on them mate… 😉

    the main man has spoken…you got a good chance of winning a few of them over if you play your cards right… 😉

    yeah ave i seen that on sky news this morning…id like to say it was a gooner and shake that mans hand…but after the amount of cash spuds paid for him it could be a spud 😉

  10. JonJon says:

    Peter really loved her…i cant see him leaving her for no reason….

    theirs reoprts thats she was pregnant…maybe it played on his mind if the baby was his…

    jordan will always be jordan…

    shes one of them birds whos good for a fling but she aint marriage material….i think andres learned that the hard way….

  11. JonJon says:

    LMAO i just got that ave 😉

    its too early to be cracking jokes…

  12. JonJon says:

    i got a feeling rasp is upset over the cricket…it will take him a few days to get over this..

    i know little about cricket but from what ive seen strauss has cocked this right up…bad bad decisions and we are looking at getting spanked by an innings.. 😦

    wheres evo and GG?? thought they’d of been rubbing it in by now.. maybe thats why rasps staying away.. 😦

  13. avenell says:

    Cricket seems to be dying in the hearts of the English..
    If we lose this series it could be the nail in English crickets coffin.. The honeymoon preiod from the last Ashes win seems well and truly over..

    I may be completly wrong with those views, but looking in from the outside that is how it seems..

    You may know better than me on that Rasp.. I am sure the grounds are sold out evey day, but they only hold 16-20,000 people don’t they?

  14. JonJon says:

    id agree with that ave, looking from the outside in…

  15. avenell says:

    Yes I think so as he has a large share.. If I owned £150 million quids worth I would want a say..

  16. Rasputin says:

    Hi guys (no gals around as far as I can see)

    Good post JonJon. I’d be quite happy to see one or two others go out on loan for the season too. Big Phil shouln’t have expressed his love for playing abroad when there was a chance he’d be back in the UK with us…..

    Ave – I’m not talking about cricket 😦

    Sorry I haven’t been around much …. life is very hectic at the moment. Barnet next week and something concrete to comment on… I hope!

  17. rico01 says:

    Morning all – just saying hello and then off to read the post and comments – i did catch the one about me being out yodelling 😉

    Ave – how did Mrs ave’s RFL go ??

  18. JonJon says:

    hi rasp…

    yeah sometimes things take importance over blogging…you do what ya got to do fella..

    i think wenger might have plans for phil this season, it just depends on whether phil accepts them…

    ave…all this takeover malarky has gotta be having a negative effect on the team

    kroenke is just as suspect as usmanov…neither were around when we were trying to raise capital for the stadium yet now its built they both want in…

    i think kroenke staying quiet is giving him the upper hand but nobody knows whats going to happen if he takes full control….on the other hand we all know what usmanovs intentions are….they could be both the same for all we know…

  19. rico01 says:

    Yodel a hey hey 🙂

    Nice one JJ, I reckon Big Swiss will go to Brum, they have made 4/5 signings so far and some not too bad either 😉

    Maybe that is the bad news to come at the same time we announce the waltzing one is signed 😉

    What are the odds on the Bentley Basher being a Gooner 🙂

  20. rico01 says:

    Oops, got the clubs muddled up, Toblerone to Sunderland and Traore to Brum 😦

  21. JonJon says:

    yeah rico…could be…the day sendersob leaves is the day we annonuce waltzing is here…

  22. rico01 says:

    See what happens, I turn up and the place empties 😦

  23. JonJon says:

    i was still here rico…you went walkies… 😉

  24. avenell says:

    Hehe.. I’ve been cutting the grass.. bloody rain stopped play.. then Oh no.. the petrol can, the funnel, battery, jump leads, Spade (for the poxy mole hills) then to top it off Mrs Ave leaves the washing out..

    I’m soaked.. 😦

    Yes she got on okay thanks Rico.. I’m glad I didn’t go she had pink legwarmers and sweatband on.. bloody embarrassment.. worse than shopping at Lidl’s (well nearly)

  25. JonJon says:

    ave you just reminded me…i gotta go to asda later… sunday big shop.. 😉

  26. avenell says:

    if you go to Asda .. you are putting monies into Alan Hansen’s pocket!!! That’s worse than being on Vodaphone… with a Samsung phone.. :mrgreen:

  27. JonJon says:

    ive got a samsung on a vodafone contract too… 😆

    i’ll go harrass them goats shall i???

  28. rico01 says:

    you old buggers, i have a samsung on a vodafone contract too – which one have you got jj 😉

  29. rico01 says:

    ave – surely not worse than lidil, but very funny 🙂

  30. rico01 says:

    Talking of walkies, that is how i spent my morning, up with the larks for the animals, then nabbed a few extra zzzz’s and then up again for a two hour walk through the fields & woods – we did croos a bridge without any sign of a goat, but a few kestrel and red kite 😉

    For all Robin’s moaning about trophies etc, and i was one of many who thought he had the cheek of old Nik to make such comments, he truly has shown great loyalty when it counts – he turned down (so its said) mega bucks from other clubs to stay with us….

    I think to myself why ?? He has all but said we are poop in the transfer market and don’t have the players to win – and I then just wonder in my mind what has he been told??

    TV is in, Waltzing seems just around the corner, but is there another surprise in store for us all – I wonder 🙂

  31. rico01 says:

    So – Toblerone gets sold for maybe 5M, Randall maybe 1M – Traore gets loaned so thats his wages off our books for another season – so that possibly means we could have 6M to spend, on top of what is left in the transfer kitty..

    Waltzing will only cost 3M or there abouts, which must be far less that the club thought they would need to spend, say maybe there is another 5M hanging around in AW’s pocket – add that to the 6M as above that leaves 10M to spend

    Anyone else like my maths – who shall we buy for 10M


  32. JonJon says:

    rico..if adebayor is on his way out i think wenger will have alot more than 10mil.. 😉

    i dont know what robins been told…but he’s still only 25…wenger could have told him what he told us at the AGM…give him two more seasons at most….and then we’ll start cleaning up….robin will still only be 27 at this point…and if wenger sees him as another bergkamp thats 9years of constant success… 😉

    plus theres the fact that the flats were scheduled to finish by 2009…i reckon the crunch has delayed that until at least 2010…by which case we’ll start having a bit more licence to spend….

    if gazidis and wenger could sell all that…then theres no reason why robin wouldnt of signed if he loved us and other teams are offering him more cash…

    and he did sign…so somethings going down somewhere…your right..he wouldnt of signed if he thought we werent going anywhere…

  33. rico01 says:

    JJ, I thought you had left me 😉

    Exactly JJ, something is happening, and its this summer, I can feel it in my water, or is that just because I am getting old 😳

    I dont read may other sites, but I do love the ones that keep us informed about the youth – JB has an article that is worth viewing – Frimpong and Coquelin…

  34. JonJon says:

    yeah rico..i was on there earlier and left a comment….i cant wait for those kids to come through…but we need trophies now……

  35. rico01 says:

    JJ – me too and I like you left a comment, and i said hello to you 😉

    Do you reckon ave would allow us to add jeorge’s site to AR’s blog roll ?

  36. rico01 says:

    Monday will tomorrow become our news day…

  37. JonJon says:

    i dont see why not rico…thats a good idea…it would be nice to adda few more….lets ask him…

    we’ll have to shout though rico…he’ll probably be in that massive garden of his….whenever i ring Mrs Avenell has to catch two buses just to get to him 😆

  38. rico01 says:

    JJ 🙂

    Off to get supper now, but will be back once consumed 🙂

  39. JonJon says:

    ok rico…im off t’adsa… wont be long.. 😉

  40. avenell says:

    Rico/jonjon I don’t know what the correct way to add blog rolls is.. I think it’s always courteous to ask first, then they may return the compliment..

    Rasp.. see it was a draw.. 🙂

  41. rico01 says:

    Woop woop – Monty Monty – supported by a Gooner Jimmy, what a match, what a start to the Ashes – and thankfully the weather didnt save us, the boys did…

    Took a Gooner though, is that an omen 🙂

    ave – cant you just cut and paste the link and stick it in with your side board 😉

  42. rico01 says:

    Won’t Asda be shut JJ 😦

  43. rico01 says:

    You all left again then ……:(

  44. JonJon says:

    bollox asda was shut….why didnt someone tell me it was sunday… 🙂

  56. rico01 says:

    nighty night all …

  60. avenell says:

    Nite rico01.. x

  61. JonJon says:

    night rico01

  62. rico says:

    Morning all –

    Been around for all the news on this sunny Monday morning, and guess what – there is nothing!

    So, I am off back to bed, catch you all alittle later

  63. rico says:

    Rotten news being reported – John Hartson has been diagnosed with testicular cancer and brain cancer – how cruel for him and his family 😥

  64. rico says:

    Off out for a while – later everyone

  65. Evo in Oz says:

    morning all,

    great day that Mark Webber won his first GP, but not so good that the last 2 at the crease hung on for dear life to deny us our win in the first test!

  66. Irishgunner says:

    Morning everyone,

    Poor John Hartson hope he pulls through.

    Gday Evo – How’s you?

  67. Evo in Oz says:

    hey irish, good thanks and yourself?

    yes big time sad news about john hartson, hope he can get thru!

  68. Irishgunner says:

    Doing good Evo thanks.

    A weird question, but what is the economy like in Australia? I heard it was picking up?

  69. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    Howdy all

    England cricket is like the Spuds, coming from nowhere for a draw.

  70. Irishgunner says:

    Morning GG9

  71. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    Oh & morning to you to Irish. The Oz economy is still quite robust, but the next 12 months could see unemployment jump.

  72. Evo in Oz says:

    yep Gnarley is on the money, unemployement is our major worry, the rest is taking care of itself so far!

  73. Irishgunner says:

    Was thinking of heading to Sydney for a few months. Do ye think I’d get a job that would cover rent and a bit of travelling around?

  74. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    Irish you would walk it in. Evo is the Sydney man here. It’s probably expensive to live smack bang in the City, but up on the northern beaches you would have a great time.

  75. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    This the sort of beach life up in Curl Curl, just north of Manly, etc. You would love it there, for instance.

  76. Irishgunner says:

    Nice one GG9 – so rent outside the city? Suburbs area?

    Myself and my brother and his girlfriend are planning to go out around Sept.

    We just want to make enough money to get by. Ireland is fecked at the moment so we thought myself as well see some of the world than sitting on our arses in the rain here.

  77. Irishgunner says:

    And it’d be heading into the summer over there wouldn’t it?

  78. Irishgunner says:

    After seeing that photo I want to go now 😀

  79. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    So i heard from the paddys that I know living here. Sydney is a bit of a sprawl, but the weather ranges from warm to steaming hot. & you will never be too far away from someone or pub that allows you to watch The Arsenal.

  80. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    September is Spring, yes summer would be just round the corner.

  81. Irishgunner says:


    Well Sydney was just a place that came to mind, we hope to travel around or bit.

    I don’t take the heat too well though 😕

  82. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    Anyway I’m hitting the sack, I watched the cricket till the wee hours last night so I need to catch some shut eye. Talk to evo if you want to know more about Sydney, coz he lives up there.

    Later Irish.

  83. Irishgunner says:

    Thanks GG9 🙂


  84. Irishgunner says:

    City in for Adebayor 😀 😀 MONEY £££££££££££

  85. JonJon says:

    yessssssssss come on

    sorry short outburst there

    hi guys….cant talk at work but come on…

  86. avenell says:

    Afternoon Roadsters.. Good news!!!

    The only thing that pisses me off is the lazy bastard gets a rise.. Still it isn’t my money so much now.. 🙂

  87. avenell says:

    And Man u are skint.. haha

  88. Irishgunner says:

    Afternoon Avenell,

    How much will we get for Adebayor? £25mil?

  89. avenell says:

    Hi Irish.. I hope so anything over £20mill would be good, but you never know with Man Citeh..

    I love Mark Hughes, thank you, thank you..

  90. Evo in Oz says:

    yeah come over Irish, ill take you around no worries!

  91. avenell says:

    Evo where in sydney are you from?

    Mrs Ave’s brother lives there, he has been here for the week but is flying back this afternoon..

  92. Evo in Oz says:

    i live in South Sydney, less than 5kms (3miles) from the City Centre!

  93. JonJon says:

    COME ON!!!!!!

  94. avenell says:

    I’ll ask where her bruv comes from when she gets in..

    I only know he used to work for Quantas..

  95. avenell says:

    All the Ade lovers can piss off and support City..

    When will they learn players come and go, a few become legends like TA6 and DB10, but Arsenal will always carry on..

  96. JonJon says:

    well said ave..well said…

  97. Evo in Oz says:

    gotta hit the sack lads and ladies, catch u all later on

  98. Irishgunner says:

    Cheers Evo – my mind is fairly made up on it. Have to get visas and all that but it doesn’t take long.

    C’mon Man Shitty – give us money so we can reinvest it in the squad 😀

  99. JonJon says:


    milan are my beyonce… lol

    he played the field too much and gets left with naff all but a female version of ian dowie


  100. avenell says:




  101. JonJon says:

    i hope he goes….

    1..i can really start abusing the prick once hes in a different colour shirt

    2…we need the cash..

    3..hes shit anyway

    4…it gives out a simple message….DO NOT FUCK WITH WENGER…DO NOT FUCK WITH THE FANS…DO NOT FUCK WITH THE CLUB…it doesnt matter who you think you are you…YOU WILL BE SOLD…TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER…

  102. avenell says:

    The other good thing is we can watch him fail before our very eyes in the Premiership.. I don’t have to watch Italian or Spanish football..

    I bet he ends up at Bolton or Newcastle within 2 years..

  103. kelsey says:

    Afternoon all,

    sorry that the three wise monkeys haven’t been on much know who the other two are.

    Well,ethan will be having an orgasm if the deal goes through.Can’t see the clubs having a problem with a deal, but the player may not get the personal terms he wants like a car for every day of the week, a 9 bedroom house with a multitude of mirrors in each room and about 80k a day for personal appearances if he gets off the bench.

    Anyway light blue would suit him better than red. Amen 😉

  104. Irishgunner says:

    Kelsey – I will personally fit the mirrors in his new Manchester House if we get £25mil for him.

  105. kelsey says:

    Hi Irish,

    In all seriousness I believe the only stumbling block to a deal will be with the man himself,the so called personal terms.

    Interesting that the Huntlear deal to Stuggart deal is on hold,so maybe that’s an option,or we will use the money to strengthen the defence.
    Anyway,at the moment it is not a done deal.Stu was asking about you the other day, really. 🙂

  106. Irishgunner says:

    I hope he was saying nice things Kelsey 😉

    I have a great idea for a forward, he’d be relatively cheap, good goal poacher, world cup winner and could teach Nikki B a thing or two…

  107. avenell says:

    Sir Red Nose has critisised the inflated transfer fee’s hahaha.. er Rooney.. Count Berbaslug.. The wide mouth Ben johnson.. stop it!

    Or is it the playing field has changed and you ain’t top dog no more in the transfer market.

  108. Irishgunner says:

    Sir red Nose and Rafa 😆

    I’m enjoying this transfer season so far I must say.

    C’mon AW get us that CM and we are good to go (and another striker from the Adebayor money) 🙂

  109. avenell says:

    Jonjon said we already have Waltzing in the bag.. and London has a theory that Arsenal wait for some bad news before they tell us some good news..

    So we have to wait for some bad news now.. We have 2 lots of good to counter act any bad now 😉

    I don’t know if we need a striker that badly, we might have enough, if we play a 4-5-1 we have quite a few options open to us..

    but I have a feeling Mr Wenger OBE will come up with a gem of a signing..

  110. Irishgunner says:

    As Kelsey mentioned Huntelaar would be good and I wouldn’t mind a certain French world cup winning forward at the Emirates and it ain’t henry

  111. avenell says:

    I can only think you must mean Trezeguet.. ??

  112. Irishgunner says:

    Yep 🙂

  113. kelsey says:

    Slow down,

    the story has changed somewhat (as per usual) they just had talks over the weekend, nothing more nothing less.Apparently he wants to co manage the club with Mark Hughes as part of the deal.

    Irish he was wondering where you were 🙂

    Did you read that we have sacked our marketing director as 12 boxes are unsold.(source Sunday Mirror,who else)

  114. avenell says:

    I used to think Trezeguet was the nuts 10 years ago.. Whats he like now?

  115. rico says:

    Good afternoon all

    Dont get me wrong, i am excited about the news on Ade, just wish it was an overseas club… 😉

    Maybe this is what Rvp has been told ??

    Will Robinho be part of the deal ??

    Or Micah Richards, or even Stephen Ireland ?

    Will it just be cash and then we get Chamaka (spelling) but the one i have suggested could be our top scorer next season…

    All this proves is Citeh have money, but they lack ambition 🙂

  116. avenell says:

    C’mon Kelsey we have to live in hope… I have never wanted anyone to leave Arsenal as much as Ade..

    not even Eboue..

    the only thing is London and me won’t have nothing to argue about and we will never know if Ade would have been benched.. still a small price to pay..

  117. Irishgunner says:

    Ha ha Kelsey,

    Its exciting news though 🙂

    I read over the weekend in The Times I think, that Terry wanted a clause in his contract that he would always be among the highest earners and had the option to become manager on his retirement – talk about a high opinion of himself.

  118. Irishgunner says:

    Avenell – i think for if we could get him for about £7mil he’d be well worth it and could also teach Nikki B a thing or two about finishing.

  119. Rasputin says:

    A’anoon Roadsters,

    I don’t rate Trez now – if we had 10-12m to spend we could do better….he’d have no resale value anyway…

  120. Rasputin says:

    Darren Bent’s going cheap 😉

  121. rico says:

    Hi Rasp, no other bugger has said hello yet 😉

    Harmy has been called up for the second test – smart move I think, but I remember you were not so sure…

    What a final 20 mins yesterday 🙂

  122. Irishgunner says:

    Darn the resale value – he’d be better than Chamack.

    Darren Bent hahaha

  123. JonJon says:

    this is hysterical…half of them are crying and the other half are fighting amongst themselves… tossers

  124. Irishgunner says:

    Pardon me 😉

    Afternoon Rico and Rasp 🙂

  125. rico says:

    Hi Irish – so you admit Nikki needs help trying to shoot then ?? 😉 😉 😉 😉

  126. Irishgunner says:

    Yes Rico – only to turn him into a world class striker 😉

    We all need a helping hand every now and again, even the best ha ha

  127. Rasputin says:

    Hi rico, Irish

    Rico – yes a very exciting end to the test…. but a very embarrassing and unnecessary bit of timewasting at the end 😦 Ponting can’t complain because he’s the king of underhand tactics 👿

    Nikki will grow in stature once Ade is not around – don’t forget he headbutted him …. that ranks with Gallas sitting on the centre circle as one of the worst things I’ve seen an Arsenal player do in a game…… he should have been punished severely by the club for that.

  128. kelsey says:

    rico good afternboon and to you to rasp.

    IF two letters but a big word.IF ade really is up for sale and a deal is done,so be it.On the other hand if negotiations break down and he remains at Arsenal,will he still be an automatic first choice.

    I stick with my original belief,that ade has caused a lot of trouble with others at the club,leaving aside his performances last season,which though debatable,were far from impressive.he has carried this theme through with his own national coach,refusing to play for Togo, or on his terms only.

    We all make mistakes,and giving him a reported 80K a week set a bench mark for other players.

    My gut reaction trying to be impartial as i can, is that the team will benefit with him not is best to be frank about these things sometimes,if some object,no worries.

  129. kelsey says:

    afterboon, i meant afternoon.

  130. rico says:

    Rasp – I actually had a worry it would do more harm than good, Monty and Gooner Jimmy were playing so sensibly, and so well – cant wait for Thursday 😉

    On to Ade, I think he has had a bit of a ‘Henry effect’ in some games, he has such an ego others are almost intimidated.

    I really want Nik to grow into one of the best strikers we have ever had, just because right now i dont see it, i will be the first to put my hands up and admit i was wrong – and trust me, i cant wait for the day 😉

  131. Rasputin says:

    Hi Kelsey – I’ve had some of your type dental work done today…. but at UK prices 😦 ouch x 2

    The person who would politely disagree with you is on holiday and the rest of are of the same mind re ADE..

  132. Irishgunner says:

    I think Wenger has had enough of him to be honest.

    He got his pay rise and didn’t re-pay the club imo.

    What are the chances that the money Adebayor got prevented AW giving Flamini the contract he wanted?

  133. Irishgunner says:

    Rico – if you could pass on that picture this time next year of you holding your hands up, that’d be most welcome 😉

  134. rico says:

    Hi kelsey – if he stays, like you i think he will be first choice – however, that could change depending on how he conducts himself over this negotiation with citeh – it will be interesting when we hear something from AFC..

  135. kelsey says:

    Hope it went alright rasp 🙂

    rico, I have the same reservations you have with nicci,but with theo.

  136. Rasputin says:

    rico – I agree that Nik is some way off yet and I’d buy a midfielder and a decent striker if Ade’s money would stretch to it.

    RSC was the one for me, but now he’s at citeh so we need Arsene to unearth an ‘unexpected gem’….as he did with Eduardo!

  137. rico says:

    Irish – I like that comment, and I promise you now, and ave can put a widget or something up to remind me – I will have a photo taken showing just that 😉 😉

    I will however hang fire a while before purchasing a camera 😉

    On to another story or two around today, Almunia is now able to play for England – anyone reckon Fabio will pick him? I do, Fabio is one of a few managers with big b**s, and he won’t care what people think..

    Jonny boy is in hospital, just hope treatment works for him ….

  138. Rasputin says:

    Irish … that’s a good point about us spending so much on Ade’s wages that we couldn’t afford to make Flam an offer good enough to keep him. I think Gallas is on the highest wages of all and you have to question whether that was forced because of the lateness of the A’hole deal?

  139. rico says:

    kelsey – have to say there are a few more to add to the reservations list, aswell as theo 😦

    Rasp – i am with you, striker and midfielder, but also get rid of some dross in there, Denilson, diaby, Eboue, Silvestre, Senderos (cause he wants out) Randall…… Wilshere (just checking you are all reading 😉 )

  140. kelsey says:

    I didn’t realize that Hartson was only 34.He sure has a double whammy to contend with,hopefully he can recover.

  141. Irishgunner says:

    Well we didn’t pay a transfer fee for Gallas, Rasputin so I presume that allowed the club to offer him bigger wages?

    I kind of have a feeling – and I could be way off – that the board told AW they would give him big wages for one player and he choose Adebayor and probably hoped Flamini would stay through to his word.

  142. Irishgunner says:

    Almunia for England – some English people won’t like that.

    Now if he qualified for Ireland we’d have him in green already (or navy he been a goalkeeper), not that we need a keeper of course 🙂

  143. Rasputin says:

    I would never disagree with you Irish 😉 …. but …. in reality, we did pay for Gallas as it knocked £Xm off the total money we would have got for Cole – we just never saw the money change hands.

    The value of a player can be affected by other things apart from age and ability, as Kelsey keeps pointing out, Ade is a troublemaker and that may detract from his value…..

  144. rico says:

    Irish, I thought we were ‘done’ by that deal with Cole/gallas – we should have not sold Cole for less than 20M, he was playing the best football of his life, and we got a grumpy aging old CH and only 5M

    Not the best deal we have ever done imho – we should have robbed the russians 😉

  145. kelsey says:

    Anyone see the Michael Jackson Documentary last night.It revealed many things, in a totally unbiased way.

    The dancers he picked for the UK tour were sworn to secrecy and on two year contracts.

    2 different rehearsal rooms were used,again no one was allowed to comment.Apparently he didn’t turn up until the end of March and the revealing thing came from a doctor who has many Hollywood celebrities as his patients.he believes at the very last minute,that is a month or so before he died,he reduced dramatically the various drugs he was taking to get into shape,but nearer the time being “cold turkey” he increased the mixture of drugs at an alarming rate,and that most probably killed him.

    Hollywood known as Medication City.

  146. Irishgunner says:

    I like to think we got Gallas for nothing – makes me able to explain away his behaviour easily 😀 “Aw sure we got him for nothing”.

    How many years had Cashley left on his contract? Did we really get screwed?

  147. Irishgunner says:

    Kelsey – Latoya claimed yesterday he was killed for his money, I don’t believe that, I think what you just said will probably have more than a little truth in it.

  148. Rasputin says:

    rico …. apart from Ade, I’d definitely sell Diaby and EE unless AW only used him as a RB… but not LJ you tinker 🙂

  149. rico says:

    Rasp me old mucker, you read it – and of course I would not even contemplate selling our best ‘potential’ we have seen in years 😉

    As for Jacko – I just wish all those ‘near and connected’ to him would shut tfu – I loved and still love him and I pray he can one day be left alone to RIP – but then again, Diana has only just stopped being reported about …..

    Moving on 😉

  150. Irishgunner says:

    Lady Diana, Michael Jackson – lesson to be learnt is don’t let Martin Bashir do an interview with you …

  151. JonJon says:

    evening guys…i can chat properly now…work was mad but i so wanted to join the party….

    i wouldnt care id we signed anyone else as long as we got rid of that lanky streak of piss…

    irish…to answer your question re flamini…

    i reckon the whole ade saga took alot of time away from wenger last season to fully concentrate on rebuilding the squad…

    wengers not thick…he knew that he would have to replace the players he lost and he didnt really did he….

    not only this…but we are a club that uses a joint transfer/wages kitty….

    whatevers left after wage rises is used for transfers…ade practically tripled his wages…taking a whole heap of cash from the funds….wenger didnt anticipate that and was forced to pick up freebies like sivestre and pissoff….

    ade fucked last summer up…and he let everyone down…

    i hate him and he has to be sold..jeez id give mancity 20mil to take him…

  152. JonJon says:

    hi rasp…are you ok mate??

    oh and hi rico…sorry for not saying hi earlier…

    oh and kelsey…i fully agree with you…just with a little more anger.. 😉

  153. rico says:

    No worries JonJon – did you have a good evening last night 😉

  154. rico says:

    Adebayor to City?
    Opta break down Adebayor’s four seasons with Arsenal

    Recent transfer speculation has linked Arsenal striker Emanuel Adebayor with a move to Manchester City, potentially joining an ever-growing list of high-profile strikers at Eastlands.
    With this in mind, Opta casts an eye over his four seasons in London.
    Adebayor has come in for criticism from some quarters for not playing to the best of his ability this season, netting only 10 goals in 26 league appearances.
    Whilst this is a solid rate of return, it does not match up to his performances in 2007/08 when he bagged 24 goals in the season.
    However, it remains an improvement on his first two seasons in the top-flight with the Gunners, as he netted a goal every 188 minutes – almost twice as often as in 2006/07.
    If some people point to a poorer form in the league this season, his performances in the Champions League seem to have been improving season-on-season.
    Adebayor in the Premier League
    Season 2008/09 2007/08 2006/07 2005/06
    Appearances 26 36 29 13
    Starts 21 32 21 12
    Minutes 1879 2932 2987 1007
    Goals 10 24 8 4
    Minutes per Goal 188 122 373 252
    Shots 55 104 58 23
    Accuracy 45% 51% 52% 48%
    Conversion Rate 18% 23% 14% 17%
    Assists 4 4 3 4

    Last season Adebayor had his best season yet with Arsenal in Europe, bagging more goals and with a greater conversion rate than ever before, as well as setting up two goals.
    These stats point to the idea that the Togolese striker is improving against the best as he plays in Europe’s elite competition, though Mark Hughes will be acutely aware that the Citizens are not playing Champions League football just yet.

    Wow, he was good, no ??

    😉 😉 😉 😉

  156. rico says:

    all very quiet, so i am off – had a poop day so i am going to have a glass of something naughty (full cream milk) and watch a recording of Dads Army – they just don’t make them like that anymore 😉

    And it’s so good the beeb are re-running them 🙂

  157. Rasputin says:

    Have a nice evening rico 😛

    Hi JonJon, I’m good thanks, hope you are too ………. we agree on Ade – I just can’t put it into words as well as you do 😆

  158. peachesgooner says:

    Hey guys and gals

    Been mega busy – how are we all…….

    Sorry about your poop day rico – enjoy your glass of something 🙂

    Anyone listening to talksport about 6.30 they were waiting for a gooner to call in about Adebayor and I wondered if he was a ‘pro Ade man’ or a ‘please someone come and buy him type’

    Who’s left to buy?

    I did hear SAF saying the tranfer prices were ridiculous and even though they got £80m for Ronaldo they weren’t going to buy anyone else

  159. avenell says:

    Evening Peaches/all

    Yeah the bloke who paid £28 mill the Veron 8 years ago reckons the transfer prices are inflated..

  160. peachesgooner says:

    ave sweetie 🙂 How are you – sorry I’ve been away from my keyboard and phone 😦

  161. avenell says:

    I’m okay thanks.. not a problem, I have had others filling your void (if you don’t mind me saying)

    How are you, why so busy? Is it that Buddy lot taking your blog time away?

  162. peachesgooner says:

    Hampton Court flower show yesterday, very beautiful, fantastic weather…… I was out planting very early and then propagating later on, got very brown shoulders but white legs – I need to sit in the sun 🙂

  163. avenell says:

    Ahh that explains something.. down this end!!

  164. peachesgooner says:

    I might call you – what time would be good?

  165. kelsey says:

    6.00.a.m. would be good 😉

  166. avenell says:

    If you mean me.. whenever tonite.. not too early in the morning though.. 😦

  167. peachesgooner says:

    kelsey – I thought you’d be done for the night sorry

  168. JonJon says:

    have you two done on the phone yet???

    i fell asleep…all the hectic excitement today wore me out…had a massive tea…and then nodded off… 😉

  169. rico says:

    Morning all

    Will it be today I wonder 😉

  170. rico says:

    Ade out today

    Matilda and Chamakha in – how good would that be 🙂

  171. rico says:

    Catch you later 🙂

  172. raif says:

    this could be the best week ever.. Bently gets a Punch to the face and hit mate gets one aswell after trying to be a hero.

    and Ade could be going to man city.. ohhh i hope it happens. then we can get somone like Klass Hunter or even pinch a player from man city in thre ade deal

  173. kelsey says:

    has peaches eloped with someone,deafeningly quiet.

    i shall not make another comment about Adebayor until we know one way or another if he is going or staying.(promise)

  174. Irishgunner says:

    Morning all – sorry I disappeared so abruptly yesterday, someone hacked into the internet in Ireland and it was down all evening.

    Anyways, have we got our £20mil yet? 🙂

  175. JonJon says:

    has he gone yet???

    morning everyone

  176. Evo in Oz says:

    gday all,

    red wine here, whats news!?

  177. Irishgunner says:

    Nah he’s still here 😦

    Anyone else see the PV04 to the Spuds rumour?

  178. JonJon says:

    howdy evo..

    i heard the paddy rumours irish but he wont go to not even sure he’ll come back to england…not to another team anyway….

    he’ll go back to france…

  179. Irishgunner says:


  180. JonJon says:

    maybe irish…its not like they aint got the money to giv him decent wages for a couple of seasons…

  181. Irishgunner says:

    They have more money now without having to pay Benzmea

  182. Irishgunner says:

    Daily Mail are reporting Adebayor is undergoing a medical and a fee of £25mil has been agreed – I chose to believe this 🙂

  183. JonJon says:

    exactly irish

    paddys 33 and on 120k+ a week…i really cant see him taking a massive cut to play for a mediocre team in england…

    he’ll return home…. like makelele did..make it worth his while

    do my eyes decieve me??? is it true???? there is a lord…..thankyou baby jesus

  184. avenell says:

    Afternoon Roadsters..
    Man city have a press conference at 2.00 be good if it was a double up and not just Tevez..

  185. JonJon says:

    im hearing news that the spuds want flamini

    they can fuck right off….

  186. Irishgunner says:

    Its a reported double up Avenell.

    Its great to get £25mil for Adebayor (if true) but we have to reinvest it in the squad or selling him may come back to bite us in the backside.

  187. avenell says:

    Are you on a wind up Irish? 🙂 SSN reckon it’s £22 mill for Ade.. I don’t think it will bite us on the backside.. he will be nothing without Fabregas putting it on a plate for him..

  188. rico says:

    Afternoon all – no real news then 😉

  189. JonJon says:

    this one wont bite us irish…

    hes nothing without this team..

  190. Irishgunner says:

    I just want us to spend the money this time 😦

    We could get Higuain who Madrid are now reportedly open to selling for that, or Huntelaar.

    I don’t want this Chamack guy, he looks awful!

  191. avenell says:

    Hello 01 how are you?

  192. Rasputin says:

    Hi Roadsters,

    Biggest boo for next season, when the citeh player Ade’s name is announced at the Emirates

    Biggest cheer – when Germolene smashes into him to win a header…..

  193. JonJon says:

    i dunno if wenger will re-invest…

    he paid 15mil for AK and 10mil for germeline…

    he could be balancing the books…

  194. Irishgunner says:

    Why did City but Santa Cruz and Adebayor?

    Aren’t they pretty similar in the way they play?

  195. rico says:

    Hi ave, ok thanks – had to go to Reading this morning, how I hate the place 😦

    Hows things with you ?

    Lots of different stories about Ade, some say all has been agreed, some say the two clubs are just talking – looks like we will get something definate today, maybe sooner rather than later

  196. JonJon says:

    or gets him offside 😉

    hi rico hi rasp

  197. avenell says:

    Hughes will bring on Santa Cruz when the linesmans arm aches too much..

  198. JonJon says:

    could be playing a 433 irish

  199. Rasputin says:

    Hi JonJon – RSC is a much better footballer than Ade, I can’t see him starting that many games comes Xmas.

  200. rico says:

    Still wish Ade was in talks with Milan or some other club abroad rather than Citeh, but then no-one else would waste 25M on him..

  201. JonJon says:

    ade wont be bothered how many games he plays as long as hes getting his wages….ade would sit on the bench for 5 years on 170k aweek

    probably why they want him

  202. JonJon says:

    dont worry he wont be dangerous at citeh rico…

    hes shit for us….they have worse midfeilders and a worse manager….

    im going to enjoy watching him fall…

  203. rico says:

    JJ, Arsene does seem to have a knack of letting players go at the right time, so i will stay positive.. 🙂

    Cant believe the Paddy and Flamini rumours about Arry signing them…

    Good point about Hughes to JJ, I still think he could be sacked by Christmas – no way has he the experience to keep all these egos in check..

    Also, i am wondering if Robinho is part of the Ade sale

  204. rico says:

    Press conference at Citeh has been put back to 2.30 – this has to be to announce Ade as well as Tevez surely 🙂

  205. JonJon says:

    i dont want robinho rico

    he goes missing alot and he sexualy asualted a girl in a leeds nightclub not so long back….

    hes also on 150k a week so no chance

  206. avenell says:

    I’m okay thanks.. If ade does a speech at the press conference, should take all of 20 seconds ofcourseofcourse..

  207. avenell says:

    Old SWP is laughing.. from Chelsea’s bench to Man Citehs bench.. haha how to cock up a career..

  208. JonJon says:

    hi ave 😉

    SWP make a masive cockup…

    he could of joined us for 12mil. chelsea doubled it and tripled his wages and hes never looked back…

  209. Rasputin says:

    Hi ave – who’d you rather have….. SWP or Theo?

  210. avenell says:

    He could re release that Otis Redding song..
    Sitting on the Dock of the Bay….

  211. avenell says:

    Alright Rasp.. SWP.. I still think wingers ruin our system though..

  212. rico says:

    Yes, I think i am joing a very goooooooood clubbb, i will doooooo my best and win for the cluuuub, no, dis has nofing to do with money, i am verrrrrry appy today…

    Forgot the leeds thing JJ, don’t want him – but i reckon a player could be involved – Ireland maybe, just for Irish 🙂

  213. rico says:

    Hi Rasp – Theo for me, he hasn’t been tainted by the Russian’s 😉

  214. JonJon says:

    or richards rico…

  215. avenell says:

    I wonder if Nikki B reads the Arsenal sites?.. I bet he would be pissing himself, how we all think of Ade..

    Apart from true supporters obviously.. 🙂

  216. Irishgunner says:

    I’d like Richard Dunne in that Ireland is a no-go.

    Richards has swine flu though and is too bling bling

  217. Rasputin says:

    Hi rico – I don’t actually think there’s much to choose between them. SWP has a trick or two and Theo is a tad faster. They can both shoot. Obviously Capello prefers Theo. It would be quite nice to chant Sha-un Wright, Wright, Wright 🙂

  218. rico says:

    Richards, good shout and he is very unhappy at citeh, and a Gooner, what more could we ask 😉

    Wish they would just get on with it..

    Wouldn’t that be great to hear agin, and sing again, but the real Wrighty has been a bit twit recently, he will probably tell Shaun to take the money and preserve his engy this season 😉

  219. Rasputin says:

    MH can’t be that bad a manager – why would we want players that he’s replaced with better quality? …. especially since they am to nick our CL slot

  220. JonJon says:

    whos up for hugging ave after that last comment?? 😉

  221. rico says:

    Lets guess what will be known by 6pm today –

    I reckon, Ade is sold

    And we announce Waltzing and Chamakh as new signings

  222. JonJon says:

    i think the title is between us and pool rasp…

    utd are theones under threat from citeh

  223. rico says:

    Good point Rasp, but I think he is a bit like a kid in a sweet shop – Tevez is a good buy, as is RSC, but if he is after Ade ?? 😉

    I would take Richards or Ireland – but unsure of any others

  224. Irishgunner says:

    I think Chelsea could be under more trouble than United.

  225. rico says:

    Would I be right and thinking those who can are sat in front of their televison, eyes firmly focussed on Sky Sports News 😉

    Tevez has yet to turn up so the conference may be delayed further – i reckon its Ade’s fault, he cant spell his name and is taking time to sign his new contract 😉

  226. rico says:

    Irish – great comment, and if Terry weakens knowing he needs all the money he can get to pay for the shoplifting days out his Mum has, and he leaves, they will be in deep doo doo 🙂

  227. rico says:

    Becks wants to return to the EPL, maybe he will come and help Theo 😉

  228. Irishgunner says:

    I have Sky News on – no Sky Sports News 😦

  229. rico says:

    Don’t worry Irish, they will break the news at the same time -sports news channel is really boring and repetitive 😦

  230. rico says:

    3pm conference now – still no Tevez…

  231. JonJon says:

    whats happening???????

  232. rico says:

    Arsenal’s pursuit of Fluminense striker Wellington has stepped up a gear after the Brazilian flew into London this week to have a look around the facilities at London Colney and begin transfer talks.

    Young Guns revealed last week that the club had booked out four hotel rooms all for Brazilian youngsters, and we’ve since been able to confirm that one of the rooms was for the quick-silver front-man. However, a move appeared to be dead last month when Fluminense coach Carlos Alberto Parreira promoted the Brazil Under 17 international to his first-team squad.

    The starlet, nicknamed Ciel, has quickly become one of the most sought after youngsters among European clubs. Real Madrid, Chelsea and Barcelona are among interested parties, while Manchester United are believed to have made inquiries recently. United scouts will know all about Wellington as he hammered one of the goals which saw Flu win the Nike Cup at Old Trafford last summer.

    Yet Arsenal have always been the front runners after Wellington impressed during a 7 day trial around Christmas time. He played 45 minutes for the Under 16’s against Norwich and he made an emphatic impression, scoring 4 goals. This led to speculation that he had been signed, but those reports were wide of the mark.

    But now it appears a deal could finally go through. Liam Brady has openly been looking for a young striker with Chelsea’s Frank Nouble the latest name to be linked. It’s unknown how a deal would be formatted as FIFA rules dictate Brazilian youngsters must be 18 before they leave their native country, although if the players family are open to moving before a switch is completed this can be got around.

  233. Irishgunner says:

    That young Brazilian Wellington is after jetting in according to Young Guns

  234. JonJon says:

    didnt he score 4 on his debut????

    what about adebayor??????

  235. rico says:

    Spooky Irish 😉

    JJ – conference is now 3pm as Tevez is yet to appear, me though, i think it time needed to secure Ade’s signature

  236. Irishgunner says:

    Not a thing yet

  237. Irishgunner says:

    Then we announce a signing tomorrow? 🙂

  238. rico says:

    Today Irish, Waltzing Maltilda 😛

  239. Irishgunner says:

    Today at 4?

    Ha ha then the theory was correct but we’re not exactly disappointed by Adebayor leaving.

  240. rico says:

    I bet we hear nothing about anything today Irish 😉

  241. Irishgunner says:

    I’m getting bored …. c’mon with the news already

  242. rico says:

    144M – thats how much City have spent…. so far !!

  243. rico says:

    suggestion is Irish that the fee has now been agreed, Ade is just sorting out all his personal requirements 😉

  244. rico says:

    Tevez has arrived at Citeh and has been mobbed – lets hope he has been injured 🙂

  245. Irishgunner says:

    £170k a week apparently – are City off their rocker?

  246. rico says:

    Crazy money, no-one is worth that amount, especially Ade..

  247. Irishgunner says:

    I will stand offside for £100 a game and an umbrella if its wet…

  248. JonJon says:

    he is… ade is class… he worth well more than that.. your getting a bargain sparky hurry up and make it happen

  249. rico says:

    Ha ha Irish –

    Right, I have to go out for a while – maybe I will return to some good news..

    Catch up in a while all

  250. Irishgunner says:

    I see what you are doing Jon Jon – just in case the Man City News of the World people are reading 😉

    No, Adebayor, don’t go ……. pleaaaaaaaaaaaaase

    (how’s that?)

  251. Irishgunner says:

    See ya Rico

  252. JonJon says:

    seeya rico

    yeah irish…..thats it…

    please dont go ade….your great… mancity will win the title with you next year….

    170k is nothing for a 50 goal season….

    citeh are soooo lucky…

  253. Irishgunner says:

    Mark Hughes really looks like the cat that got the cream.

  254. JonJon says:

    whats happening??

  255. Irishgunner says:

    Dunno anymore – Sky Sports aren’t showing it anymore.

    Basically Tevez doesn’t like Ferguson and didn’t move to City for the money…ahem!

  256. Irishgunner says:

    *Sorry Sky News aren’t showing it anymore

  257. JonJon says:


    did sparky say anything about ade…was he asked?

  258. Irishgunner says:

    They just asked him would Tevez be the last signing and he said no, that there are opportunities to sign more players and to strengthen the squad further to challenge next season.

  259. Irishgunner says:

    All that is coming from the Guardian

  260. JonJon says:

    dont those papers tell the truth????

    i thought it was the tabloids that lied…

    broadsheets are the best….

  261. Irishgunner says:

    Apparently he confirmed talks Jon Jon, must have missed it after they cut it off

  262. Irishgunner says:

    Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has confirmed that the Blues are in talks with Arsenal over the sale of Togo international Emmanuel Adebayor. Speaking at the unveiling of Argentine international Carlos Tevez, the Welsh coach fielded questions from journalists regarding his future transfer targets and made clear that talks with representatives from the Emirates outfit were ongoing, but that he would not be drawn further until a deal was complete.

  263. JonJon says:

    im so excited….

  264. Irishgunner says:

    I can tell ha ha your posts seem on edge for info – you want this move to happen now don’t you?

  265. JonJon says:

    only slightly irish… 😉

  266. Irishgunner says:

    That might be the biggest understatement of this century 😉

  267. JonJon says:

    i dont care if we dont sign anyone else…i just want him to naff off…

    it will be the biggest masterstroke since wenger sold anelka and anelka was 100times the player ade is….

  268. Irishgunner says:

    Its a bit mad by City, I know they have lots of money but £25mil and £170k a week 😯

  269. JonJon says:

    let them do it irish…they are trying to do a madrid…

    these dudes at citeh have never run a footy club before though….citeh are going to go overdrawn by 100mil every season…

    it will all end in tears…

    especially if all these new rules start kicking in…

  270. Irishgunner says:

    You’d have to wonder their logic though.

    I mean its not like Arsenal weren’t adverse to selling him and he clearly wants to leave but to double his wages 😯

  271. Irishgunner says:

    Good news on Eddie:

    Eduardo told the Croatian press: “Everything is great, nothing hurts me. Last week I worked with a fitness coach and physio.”
    “I did all that was required and Arsenal are very pleased with my recovery”
    “Every day we are scheduled exercises running with the ball. Still, we mostly work on improving our fitness levels and endurance.”
    “No specific exercises are carried out for the operated ankle”
    “We are leaving for Bad Waltersdorf next week, on Monday. We will play two games where I should get (playing) time in one”

  272. Irishgunner says:

    Apparently Adebayor is having a work permit hearing in Manchester tomorrow and that should be that.

  273. rico says:

    Evening – Great news on Eddie.

    Wonder why Ade needs a work permit hearing, he doesnt bloomin work 😉

  274. Rasputin says:

    Aha!!! that was our problem……. we didn’t get a work permit for him – so he didn’t do any 👿

    Can’t wait for the tabloid headlines…

    Bye Bye Ade…Ade Bye Bye (BCR)
    etc etc etc

  275. rico says:

    I know, it was taken off of him in February 2008 👿

  276. Irishgunner says:


  277. Rasputin says:

    Doh! … you pipped me rico 😳

    JonJon’s just hiring the open top bus as we speak….

  278. Irishgunner says:

    Can’t believe we got £25mil for him … sweet!

  279. rico says:

    Only just Rasp, only just….

    Doh! – I love that, the melo yellow family 🙂

  280. JonJon says:

    right, ive run home from work…

    what have i missed…??

  281. JonJon says:

    ahh the old WP issue..

    no worries with that one….hes played enough games in england to pass that test and if not you have to have played at least 75% of your countries national games to qualify….

    he passes both dont he…hes gone….

    thursdays post is mine if we sell him weds night.. 😉

  282. Irishgunner says:

    Work permit tomorrow JJ and £25mil in the bank for us

  283. JonJon says:

    hahaha….hes going to look like benjani in a sky blue shirt… LMAO…

    imagine two benjanis in the same team…watch out PL…


  284. rico says:

    where is that master when you need him

    AVENELL ……………………..

  285. Irishgunner says:

    No-one’s participation is guaranteed. However it is expected that the visiting squad will consist of younger players and some the senior stars who returned on July 7.

    This group included: Almunia, Rosicky, Eduardo, Clichy, Mannone, Gallas, Djourou, Wilshere, Nasri, Denilson, Silvestre, Arshavin, Traore, Senderos and Vermaelen.


  286. JonJon says:

    work permit issues are the norm when a transfer of a none EU player takes place..even if the player moves between two teams in the same league….

    its all about paperwork…..

  287. avenell says:

    Iv’e just got back in Rico01, whatsup?

  288. rico says:

    ave – nothing me old mucker, but i have sent you an email about links and stuff 🙂

  289. avenell says:

    It’s not come through yet Rico01 I will keep a look out for it..

    I cannot take the stress of this transfer deal.. It will go through won’t it?
    Please don’t go broke Abu Dhaby, not ’til next week..

  290. JonJon says:

    this is really happening isnt it???

    i cant beleive it and i wont beleive it until i see him looking like benjani but its happening isnt it…

    im over the moon…the blue moon… 😉

  291. kelsey says:

    evening all,

    i here there is a small hitch to the work permit as it says ade is a professional footballer ? 😉

  292. Irishgunner says:

    Breaking News on SSN: Adebayor deal has fallen through 😦

  293. avenell says:

    I might try to find London’s mobile no.. I must text him the good news when it breaks.. 🙂

  294. avenell says:

    That is seriously not funny Irish..

  295. Irishgunner says:

    Ha ha ha Did ye all go off and check the tele??

    Deal will be all done by tomorrow afternoon, Arsenal will announce Matuidi and new striker by Friday and that will be our summer ins and outs done.

    (Perhaps Senderos/Silvestre will leave)

  296. kelsey says:

    apparently my sources over here tell me,that ade religiously reads certain blogs(channels) every day, and couldn’t take anymore and begged with wenger to let him leave.
    so far he has packed three suitcases and that’s only his jewellery and various small mirrors.

  297. JonJon says:

    im more worried about his medical….

    if they have an examination procedure for broken lazybones the deals bound to fall through

    that ones for you rasp.. 😉

  298. Irishgunner says:

    I wonder are City packing all our suitcases with money? 🙂

  299. rico says:

    ave – its def gone from this end 😉

    Irish – you are such a bad woman 😉

  300. JonJon says:

    i feel like im 5 and its xmas eve…i really do…

  301. rico says:

    As good as it is that Ade is nearly gone, how great is it to see Thomas’s name in the squad for Barnet ….. just bloody wonderful

    Hi kelsey

  302. Irishgunner says:

    Man City fans think they are “weakening” our squad by signing Adebayor…. really, did they not watch him last season?

    The two goals he scored against them even took minimum effort – he didn’t even jump for the header.

  303. JonJon says:

    good to be a gooner.. 😉

    last summer was the shits…this summers looking fantastic..well worth the wait..

  304. JonJon says:

    next seasons gunna be well funny..i wonder how long the novelty lasts when a 25mil 170k a week striker gets caught offside 10 times a game…

  305. avenell says:

    You can’t be offside on a bench.. what is Bellamy going to do now..
    Lowest paid at Man city.. All the others turn up for training in there Lambo’s and Bellamy drives in in a Skoda..

  306. Irishgunner says:

    Bellamy will be off before the end of the transfer window for his bi-annual move to a new club.

  307. JonJon says:


    ave i bet ade can….


  308. JonJon says:

    blackburn….need to replace santa

  309. avenell says:

    Alladice was just saying he would be interested in Beckham lol

    Bang bang, how the mighty fall..

  310. JonJon says:

    ade will be at blackburn in two seasons….or westbrom

  311. Irishgunner says:

    Some people are very upset by Adebayor leaving.

    I am pretty indifferent to it although the £25mil transfer has softened an ill feelings quite a lot I must say.

  312. avenell says:

    I feel we should rest the no25 shirt as a tribute to him..


  313. Irishgunner says:

    I think the no25 shirt got enough rest last season, it barely moved to be honest.

  314. JonJon says:



  315. avenell says:

    Haha I baited you up for that one..

    Did anyone get a shirt with his name on the back? I’d love to know the figures on how many they sold with each players names on..

  316. Irishgunner says:

    I have three current players on my shirts:

    “Rosicky 7”

    “Eduardo 9”

    “Arshavin 23”

    I am toying of getting either RvP or Bendtner on the new one

  317. JonJon says:

    i wouldnt fork out another penny for adebayor….he got enough out of us….id rather get denilson….

    i bet there was more demand for almunia than ade..

  318. JonJon says:

    get waltzing, irish…

    ive got Arseshavings on the back of mine..

    on my other shirts i got henry, vieira, adams and wright…..

    i had one with rocky on the back but i wore it for footy training and it wore down….

    thinking about it…im getting another…

  319. avenell says:

    Irish,, that sounds more like voodoo.. when you put a name on the back we lose the player for a year.. poor Andrey.. gulp!!

  320. JonJon says:

    does anyone think that the deal to citeh was planned months ago…..

    remember when ade was out 6 weeks with a ‘thigh strain’ and wenger said he would sell a player to a PL team???

  321. Irishgunner says:

    The only other one has “Platt 7” – still mad I didn’t get Bergkamp.

    I also have “Unbeaten 49”

    In all fairness Avenell I got the Eduardo one after he got injured so you can only blame me for Rosicky 🙂

  322. Irishgunner says:

    Think so Jon Jon, I really doubt he was injured at season’s end – he played for Togo didn’t he?

  323. avenell says:

    I bought a blue Pires dreamcast one out of a charity shop for £2.00 last year.. even though it’s too small.. all my others have no names on..
    Mind you they are mostly eighties ones anyway..

  324. peachesgooner says:

    Oh my oh my, work is so demanding and just gets in the way of my blogging……..helloooooooooo, how are we all……gonna read back xx

  325. JonJon says:

    ave, thats a point…

    irish get AK name removed quick 😉

  326. Irishgunner says:

    Evening Peaches

    I have a few with nothing on it.

    The Platt one was my very first Arsenal shirt, the Unbeaten one was for a special commemoration, the Rosicky one was on offer where you buy the shirt and got free printing, the Eduardo one my brother paid for and the Arshavin one …. well he’s Arshavin 🙂

  327. Irishgunner says:

    I’m sorry now but I’m not going to be blamed for any mishaps that may involve Arshavin…

    As I said, Eduardo’s was printed after the incident as a sign of support.

    Above is my disclaimer 🙂

  328. avenell says:

    If anything happens to Arsh we are coming over to dip you in the pond..

  329. JonJon says:

    hi peaches…..ive been driving irish nuts today.. 😉

  330. peachesgooner says:

    So, if its not today it must surely be tomorrow 😉

    Surely the Vieira and the Flamster to the spuds is a wind-up 😦

    I couldn’t bear to see Paddy as a spud 😦 😦 😦

  331. Irishgunner says:

    Ha ha Avenell

    Lucky for me I’m moving further afield so 🙂

  332. peachesgooner says:

    I can see JonJon – good thing she can take care of herself – mind you I’ll be asking questions if anything happens to Arsh 🙂

  333. Irishgunner says:

    Peaches – Its true, Jon Jon was a bit hyper today ha ha too much sugar via the Adebayor to Man City deal 😉

  334. avenell says:

    Well it looks like sugar.. 😉

  335. peachesgooner says:

    I saw a team up on my way through the comments is that for saturday – DO YOU REALISE I’M GOING TO WATCH FOOTIE ON SATURDAY…………….

    I’m so excited……..

  336. Irishgunner says:


  337. peachesgooner says:

    and I’ve just remembered the rest…….

    And I just can’t hide it
    I’m about to lose control
    And I think I like it

  338. Irishgunner says:

    Rosicky is in the squad Peaches

  339. JonJon says:

    me too peaches… me too….

    after tomorrow..hopefully…i’ll be going into the new season full of confidence….

  340. Irishgunner says:

    I’ll just catch it on a stream 😦

  341. peachesgooner says:

    Deeeeeeep joy – Rosicky!!!!!!!!

    I’m not sure I want him to play now – what if he gets injured……..we’ll all cry 😥

  342. peachesgooner says:

    Why no Nikki in that list?

  343. Irishgunner says:

    Peaches – If I were one of those fruity people I’d tell you stop creating negative energy and vibes.

  344. peachesgooner says:

    Irish – it might be live on the arsenal on-line thing, did I give that to you before……

  345. Irishgunner says:

    He’s not back training yet – no Theo, Gibbs, Cesc, Kolo, Denilson, Song, Eboue or Adebayor (hahahaha) either

  346. peachesgooner says:

    OK OK OK OK only positive thoughts, you’re right 😉

  347. Irishgunner says:

    I deleted it off my phone 😳

    Could I get it again just for the game please? I wouldn’t use it without asking.

  348. JonJon says:

    ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. sweet arsenal..

  349. peachesgooner says:

    Coming your way……… 🙂

  350. Irishgunner says:

    Merci buckets 🙂

  351. peachesgooner says:

    I couldn’t resist this, it just jumped into my head

  352. peachesgooner says:

    Actually I’m already in my seat……..

  353. Irishgunner says:

    Barry Manilow 😕

  354. Irishgunner says:

    That’s me for the day – sweet dreams y’all 🙂

  355. peachesgooner says:

    Don’t be like that…….I’m so much older than you remember……

  356. peachesgooner says:

    Nite Irish 🙂

  357. Irishgunner says:

    I’m not being like anything ha ha I like Gareth Brooks and Elvis – just not Barry Manilow

  358. JonJon says:

    night irish…

  359. rico says:

    Night all

  360. JonJon says:

    oh ade…you came and you gave(fuckall) with(out) taking…so we sent you away…

  361. JonJon says:

    night rico..

    did barry scare you off??

  362. peachesgooner says:

    rico aren’t you staying for a Barry love-in…. 🙂

  363. JonJon says:

    im getting off as well…

    after todays excitement mrs jonjon aint gonna know whats hit her….tonight shes gonna feel beautiful…. 😉

  364. peachesgooner says:

    Good boy JonJon – that sounds lovely – enjoy 🙂 🙂 🙂

  365. kelsey says:

    To ‘reward’ Adebayor for scoring 30 goals, Arsenal doubled his salary last summer. And now, to ‘reward’ him for being 50% as prolific, City intend to double it again. Half as good – twice as well rewarded.

    The above pragraph came from East lower,and sums the whole situation perfectly.

    I would hazzard to guess that Adebayor and Tevez finish up like Anelka as money grabbing nomads.5 year contracts,my a***, let’s see if I am right.

    And Good Morning to you all,as you slowly rise from slumber.

  366. JonJon says:

    anything happened yet???

    morning all…

  367. peachesgooner says:

    Hi kelsey – where you been 🙂

  368. peachesgooner says:

    If Ade and Roque Santa Cruz form a fabulous scoring partnership a certain russian blogger is likely to be very upset………..

  369. peachesgooner says:

    Ho hum….just like the old days…….chatting away to myself…….. 😦

  370. JonJon says:

    hi peaches…

    todays the day.. 😉

  371. rico says:

    Morning all…

    So the deal is all but sealed – I feel to sad knowing Ade is going, he will be a star at Citeh and we will all wish he stayed… 😉 😉

  372. rico says:

    I am getting a complex again, I turn up and you all vanish – off to do my chores then 😦

  373. Rasputin says:

    Morning Roadsters …. jonJon, peaches, rico 🙂

    I shall be very upset if Ade isn’t offside at least 40 times for them next season 👿

    It appears that Chamakh is coming our way. He looks a very good footballer (far better than Ade), but his finishing is not clinical (about 1 in 4). I’m sure AW thinks this will improve. I don’t think he’d come in as a first choice striker. I hope/expect it to be RVP & Dudu for a 4:4:2 – or perm any 2 from Nik/RVP/Dudu. If he plays a 4:5:1, we may see Nik up front on his own and RVP as an attacking midfielder (who can’t tackle to save his life 🙂 )

  374. London says:

    Morning Roadsters

    I’m here in Egypt (July-Egypt) not my best idea. How true are these Adebayor stories, out of ten and ten being the highest (not wishfull thinking). I haven’t read anything.

  375. JonJon says:

    hi london…

    its true mate….20 out of 10

    hi rasp rico

  376. Rasputin says:

    Hi London,

    Hope you’re enjoying your holiday. I think they are more than rumours. I’d give it a 9/10, and the Matuidi & Chamakh story a 7/10

  377. London says:

    Wow….9/10…thanks Rasp

  378. London says:

    And Jonjon, got to go, catch you next week.

  379. JonJon says:

    dont forget my camel

  380. rico says:

    London – the deal is done pending a work permit hearing today – hope you are not getting too hot 😉

  381. rico says:

    Woops, Morning London and Rasp – JJ, peaches, and anyone I have missed 🙂

  382. JonJon says:

    rasp….i dont want chamkakaka

    i reckon we got enough…..lets give the others a go and rebuild the midfield

  383. rico says:

    I reckon Terry will go to Citeh too – Roman then will get upset and sell the club, The Empire will fold before our eyes 🙂

  384. rico says:

    Cant believe Paddy is going to the Spuds 😦

  385. rico says:

    I honestly don’t think we have enough up front, and I hope we get Chamkaka – we need a Kaka 😉

    I know his stats don’t read good right now, but he is yet to play in a side that creates chance after chance..

    Sorry JonJon 😉

  386. Rasputin says:

    Hi JonJon,

    I’m not bothererd about Chamakh either but it appears that Le Boss is keen to keep raiding the French talent cupboard. A quick, box-to-box hard tackling midfielder should definitely be our main priority … as we all keep saying 😉

  387. rico says:

    Rasp – Freddie Flintoff is holding a press conference later, no I dont think he is going to Citeh, but I do think he is going to retire from Test Cricket 😦

  388. Rasputin says:

    That would be a shame rico. A physio told me that on a fast bowlers delivery stride, 7 times their body weight is pounded down through their ankle. Freddie’s not exactly a lightweight and his ankles are crumbling under the strain so I’m not surprised.

    It may be a bit like TH leaving us … it could make the others step up – particularly as we are now the underdogs for the series…..

  389. rico says:

    Thats staggering Rasp, no wonder Harmy went through a tough time, I think he is going to replace Freddie in the next test match – if the weather is like it is today, we have another draw looming – Jimmy is the one Rasp, but which spinner goes, Monty or Swan – the latter is a better batter 🙂

  390. rico says:

    Villa have nabbed Downing from Boro, thats one in the eye for ‘Arry 🙂

  391. rico says:

    12m for a player who is currently injured – barmy if you ask me !

  392. rico says:

    Mind you, no-one did ask me 😉

  393. rico says:

    We could afford him, is he any good 😉

  394. rico says:

    I’m bored with my chores 😦

    And the Freddie news has dominated the sports news, so nothing about Ade 😦

  395. Irishgunner says:

    Morning all,

    Is the £25mil in our account yet? 😉

    I think I found the reason AW is so fond of this Chamakh bloke. Apparently he is very like Thierry Henry in the way he plays and has an awesome turn of speed but sadly can’t finish too well, as of yet anyway.

  396. rico says:

    Morning Irish – I would welcome him with open arms 🙂

    Henry couldnt find the net on his arrival, but once he found it…. well, we know the rest 🙂

  397. Irishgunner says:

    Morning Rico.

    Well that’s what I’ve read of him, I haven’t seen the bloke play from what I recall so can’t say how accurate a judgment that is.

    As it is, I trust AW when it comes to buying forwards so if he wants Chamakh then lets see what he’s made of.

  398. rico says:

    Some forwards Irish – not all….. 😉 😉

  399. Irishgunner says:

    I heard Francis Jeffers was only ever bought to be a ball boy and keep the bench warm – he did that well 😉

  400. rico says:

    Hee Hee – Didn’t he job share with Richard Wright that year Irish 😉

  401. Irishgunner says:

    He certainly did …. and people wonder why AW is allergic to forking out too much for English players 😉

    Just hope Theo doesn’t follow suit, big season for him coming up ..

    Irish – this is funny, they think they are getting someone special 😉

  403. Irishgunner says:

    Yep ha ha, its a toughie trying to convince Citeh fans that we Gunners are more than happy and in Jon Jon’s case on cloud nine with the deal.

  404. Irishgunner says:

    Did you see Romford Pele had a dig?

    Parlour told the Star: “He was too lazy at times last season and just didn’t do it.”
    “His body language wasn’t great.”
    “He has a big contract, which maybe is because he had a good season the year before – but he needs people behind him getting on his back.”
    “Wenger will not stand in his way because they can get a lot of money for him and then get a very good player to replace him.”
    “His attitude amazed me at times last season when he just didn’t put it in.”
    “Sometimes if things are not going well for you, you have to show desire.
    “At first I heard £30m bandied around, and I’d snap their hand off at that price. Then you go and get an excellent player who will work his socks off.”

    Well said Raymondo, well said 🙂

  406. avenell says:

    Morning Roadsters..
    How are you ladies today?

    I cannot believe this Vieira to Spurs stuff.. they are as thick as shit… Edgar Davids re-revisited.
    They just don’t ever learn.

  407. Irishgunner says:

    Confirm the transfer already…

  408. Irishgunner says:

    Avenell – Do you think it holds some truth?

    I’d rather if he didn’t move there but it wouldn’t bother me too much, PV04 is well past it, we had his best days.

  409. avenell says:

    I don’t know Irish.. I was just having a look around, it wouldn’t surprise me.. The Spuds would think it’s a great buy because of the name and they think it puts one over us..
    It would just be a shame as we would see a ghost of the real Patrick and he would blot his copy book with us Gooners.. a real shame..

  410. avenell says:

    Also ‘arry is at the point now where he has never been higher..
    He is okay scouring the premiership for players who he knew were good and want to ressurect there careers.. but now he has to make the leap and find better players, which I don’t think he is capable of.

  411. JonJon says:

    paddy wont go to spuds

    and even if he does wenger got rid of him becuase his knees are shattered from the years of wenger playing him when he was injured…. and the PL would be too much….

    it would be sad to watch him now…

  412. Irishgunner says:

    I doubt he’ll do it to be honest.

    I think PV04 himself knows his legs are going and he has spoken about wanting to play in the World Cup so a less physical league like France would make him look better. May sound silly but you may grasp what I mean?!

    If he moves back to the EPL and it passes him by he won’t be on any plane to South Africa.

  413. avenell says:

    I would also like to see Patrick come back to Arsenal one day,I used to love the way he was so gentle in the way he spoke.. That would be a serious black mark on his CV..

  414. rico says:

    What the heck, I know Tribal are not reliable, but if they want Silvestre, then take him, just take him 😉

    Morning ave – better than yesterday!!

    I am of the same view as Irish, Paddy is past it anyway, but I can’t believe he would even entertain going to them !

    And Freddie is retiring at the end of the series

  415. Irishgunner says:

    Not good 😦

    Former Wales, Arsenal and Celtic striker John Hartson who is fighting testicular cancer is in a critical condition in hospital.
    Doctors have confirmed that the cancer which had already spread to his brain, has now been diagnosed in his lungs.
    The 34-year-old, capped by Wales 51 times, was diagnosed at the weekend.
    He was transferred to Morriston Hospital in Swansea on Tuesday and underwent emergency surgery and is now receiving round-the-clock care.

  416. avenell says:

    Lance Armstrong had the same problem, in the same places.. there is hope..

  417. Irishgunner says:

    Huntelaar’s agent has said that “other bids” have been lodged for him that matched Stuttgart’s bid – I wonder are we one of them?

  418. rico says:

    Ave – did my email get through to you yesterday please, just sent you another for actioning at your quickest pace 😉 😉

  419. avenell says:

    Yes they came through last night.. I have had a few customers here this morning, I will address it now..

  420. rico says:

    Cant see the club paying 17M though Irish, sadly

  421. rico says:

    Yes ave, get on with it right now…… 👿


  422. avenell says:

    Of course I will boss 😛

  423. peachesgooner says:

    ave – you naughty boy 😀

  424. avenell says:

    No I won’t do as you ask that’s rude and disgusting.. 😉

  425. avenell says:

    Haha Peaches..

  426. Evo in Oz says:

    gday all,

    great news today hey!

  427. rico says:

    Hi peaches, he is a naughty one isn’t he 😉

    Hi Evo, lets hope so

  428. rico says:

    Got to pop out for a while, catch you later

  429. avenell says:

    Evo.. If you are there mrs Ave’s brother lives in Forestville..

  430. Evo in Oz says:

    about 13 miles away Ave, but in Sydney thats a huge distance. its over the bridge/tunnel from north to south and in traffic it could be an hour or more. but in good traffic it could be 20 mins

  431. JonJon says:

    has he gone yet???

  432. avenell says:

    No news on SSN.. 😦

  433. avenell says:

    Plenty of rumours about Hunterlaar about.. Perhaps that’s why RvP re signed.. 🙂

  434. Evo in Oz says:

    hope so!

  435. Rasputin says:

    I think we’ve as much chance of getting Huntelaar as we did with Benzema…

  436. avenell says:

    Rasp.. cheer up mate.. you have gone all BBK on us.. lol

  437. Evo in Oz says:

    probably true, but lets see

  438. avenell says:

    The fee for Hunterlaar has been agreed at £16 million with stutgard.. I don’t see why we cannot compete with that!!

  439. Evo in Oz says:

    yeah 16 mil, come on, torres was 20 mil and that was cheap as chips!

  440. Rasputin says:

    Hi ave, Evo

    I’m just being realistic. If we can match the price, we won’t match the wages and there are still some wealthy clubs out there looking to recruit strikers. I think AW has set his sights on Chamakh

  441. Evo in Oz says:

    im just hoping, but not holding out hope. there will be more signings, i just cant wait till the start of the season!

  442. Irishgunner says:

    Afternoon all,

    So is he gone yet?

  443. avenell says:

    I’m happy with the way things are going in the transfer window.. At least we haven’t lost anyone who we care about.. over the last 5 years it has been a kick in the teeth..
    I am going to look forward to the new season too..

  444. Rasputin says:

    Hi Irish,

    ave…. I haven’t really been impressed with what I’ve seen of Chamakh, but I like the idea that he is a TH14 in the raw. We have so many players that can make things happen in midfield, we should be creating more chances per game than ever before, so perhaps strikers who net 1 in 10 will still get us enough goals to win the league….

  445. avenell says:

    Jonjon try to get around to Eastlands when they do the press conference.. Be funny to see a load of Gooners celabrating his departure..

  446. Irishgunner says:

    We could always bring in Peter Crouch

  447. avenell says:

    I cannot comment on him raspno.. It is quite exciting if he was the next Henry..

    If we was to buy Hunterlaar as well though, just until Chamakh comes good we could still sell him to City next year for £30 mill..
    That’s what we used to do.. Wenger was good at ducking and diving, bobbing and weaving..

  448. avenell says:

    Ideal for changing the light bulbs Irish..

  449. Irishgunner says:

    Afternoon Rasputin,

    As I said I’ve not seen Chamakh play so can’t really argue too much for or against him. The Youtube videos don’t look good but then again youtube can make Eboue out to be Pele.

  450. Rasputin says:

    I’ll assume you’re joking Irish 🙂

    I’m off for a bit… ketchup later

  451. Irishgunner says:

    Ha ha I just know how much Arsene loves the English strikers 😉

  452. JonJon says:

    ive just phoned linny…

    we going over to manchester after work wearing our shirts and party hats and we are going to dance with the citeh fans on camera…

  453. Irishgunner says:

    Seriously Jon Jon?

  454. avenell says:

    Jonjon wear your Avenell Road shirt.. Any publicity is good

  455. Irishgunner says:

    Ha ha brilliant

  456. avenell says:

    I am out of here in a bit.. I got to nip out and buy a car.. I won’t be back till 11ish so if I miss you goodnight..

    If anyone has a post stick it on or email it through..

  457. rico says:
