The Old Man of Senegal.

Has the transfer window opened again?  I awoke to see the headlines about Arsenal being linked to three players. Bolton’s Gary Cahill just as a back up centre half, he could be just the answer especially with Johan out until February with a knee injury,  Song our other back up centre half going to the Africa Cup of Nations. Senderos doesn’t seem to be in Arsene’s plans.
We have also been linked with the usual, Marouane Chamakh, Arsene is doing an Andrei Arshavin job on him and grinding Bourdeaux down until they realise they will receive nowt for him in the summer. oh and last by not least the great man himself Patrick Vieira.

At lot of people are writing Patrick off before he even arrives at THOF, If it is true of course.
Why is it that Patrick finished at 33 years old?  Lynford Christie was 32 when he won gold in the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 and Lance Armstrong is still competing in the Tour de France at 37 and he is going to go back and have another crack at it next year..  One an endurance sport and one what needs a burst of energy.  Two completely different types of fitness are needed to succeed in those sports. I am sure football must be somewhere in between.  Also Patrick has looked after himself,  it is well known that when the other Arsenal players were on the lash, he would have one glass of wine and drive home leaving them to it..  On top of that let’s face it as much as we love Song,  Patrick in the holding role of our new formation could do Song’s job quite easily a little tackle here and a wander over there for another. You don’t lose your positional sense when you get older. Vieira has something to fight for as well,  getting in the France squad for the World Cup (if they qualify).

There have been a lot of talk about Thierry coming back to us in some form one day, I personally would rather see Patrick at least he never run off with £10 million pounds of Arsenal’s hard earned in his last year. It is worth £70k a week just to hear the “Vieira whoa whoa” song again..

Today we have the visit of some Fat Sam’s Northern Cloggers to the Emirates, after yesterdays results where the Spuds and Man U could only draw we need to keep up the momentum, any team with over double the amount of points per game played is in with a chance at the end of the season and even if we don’t get enough points out of beating the top four if we get 100% out of this type of game that should see us at the top come May.

Let’s hope the Dippers raise there game and get a draw against Chelsea later, we don’t want them pulling away

I have a feeling Arsene may break his normal rule and bring back Theo in the starting line up today, because he only had an anti- England injury and he has had a nice rest.
Please Arsene don’t start Diaby,  he looked tired and needs a holiday.

I’m going for a 4-1 .. RvP, Walcott, AK47 and a defender no doubt will score .. Gallas.

If you are going today, have a good time Roadsters, I’m going to enjoy it just watching us on the box for a change and not a poxy stream.

I forgot to mention the Ade moaning about his £25,000 fine being excessive.. that’s like one of us getting fined a tenner.. wtf..

    Afternoon Roadsters..

    An interesting video from Sunday Supplement posted on another site. These newspaper hacks always seem to talk about Arsene nicer than they write..

  2. rico says:

    Afternoon everyone

    Nice one Ave, NikNak Paddy Back 🙂 🙂

  3. avenell says:

    Hi rico.. I am trying to find everyones score predictions.. I am sure Raddy gave his somewhere.

  4. Rasputin says:

    Hi ave, excellent post,

    I’d welcome PV back and have a sneaky feeling that he’d raise his game compared to the last few seasons – particularly when up against the likes of manu and the chavs. It would be great to have a player with his aura in the side who would strike fear into the minds of the opposition.

  5. Rasputin says:

    2 nil for me ave please …..

  6. avenell says:

    Hi Rasp.. thanks. I forgot you have to work Sunday’s, do you get to watch it on a stream or anything?

  7. rico says:

    Raddy was 3-1 I think ave, hi Rasp

  8. Rasputin says:

    Sadly not ave .. I’m taking my half hour for lunch at 2 so I can listen to the start on the radio.

    I see Rosicky is asking for a new contract – I hope we offer him at least two years. He’s shown glimpses of his opd brilliance and can only get better…..

  9. avenell says:

    At least Tomas isn’t taking the piss and whoring himself around europe.. Some players would have. 😉

    He is a £20 million pound player people forget that.

  10. avenell says:

    Haha they just wheeled Thierry out in front on the Arsenal fans.. are you watching Ade??

  11. Rasputin says:

    Hi rico,

    This could be a very good day for us as we gain points on the main contenders ……

  12. Rasputin says:

    Vermaelen is the bees – the best captain yet to be ……

  13. avenell says:

    The ref was having a good game until he booked RvP.. what a knob!

  14. Rasputin says:

    We’re putting on a show for TH… I can’t believe 5 live – they’ve been covering the Celtic game and when it finished went to Stamford Bridge where they aren’t even playing yet before given a report on the first half at the Emirates … Tossers …. and no live coverage on Talkshite either ;(

  15. rico says:

    What a half…..

    Vita, totally at fault for the first goal with a little input from TV 😦 However, how quick did Vito learn, the next free kick he was straight off his line, came out and caught the ball cleanly – hats off to him, he learned and I bet he doesn’t make that mistake again – such a shame Big Al hasn’t learned from many of his errors..

    Diaby is still….. Diaby

    Up the lefties I say, and what a sight for sore eyes, Titi back loving the reception – anyone think he is ready to come home in January???? I wouldn’t bet against it, him and NikNak back in red and white would be awesome 🙂

    I thought Sagna was awful for the first ten minutes but has got better, Song is good old steady eddie, Clichy is better. The cross off the outside of the boot from Thomas to Cesc was just pure genius, oh how good is it to see him back for good….

    2nd half – later all

  16. Rasputin says:

    Diaby is outstanding … as the worst Arsenal player on the pitch ……

  17. Rasputin says:

    Theo’s back … 5:2 😛

  18. Rasputin says:

    Cesc is back to his brilliant best. Theo scores on his return and celebrates with a knee slide in front of TH pointing to the No. 14 on his back. I wonder if Henry’s presence has in some way inspired the boys?

    Happy 13th Arsene 🙂

  19. Freire says:

    Hello all!

    Great to see Theo back! Love him !

    Great shot from Bendtner too =)

  20. avenell says:

    6 subs 3 goals plus the trainer has been on in the second half yet only 3 mins of injury time.. how does that work??

  21. Rasputin says:

    I guess he took pity on Blackburn ave……. What a festival of football, can’t wait to see MOTD2.

    My son went as a birthday treat and will remember this game for a long time…..

  22. rico says:

    What a result, what a bloody result….

    I was all ready to come here and express how shite Nik is, then he scored a wonder goal – he is still a long way away imho from being quality!!

    Theo – who fell over 😉 But not a bad cameo for your first game… Nice goal – I bet the real No14 loved it 🙂

    Cesc, Cesc, Cesc – I just love you, and your kissing of the badge….. so full of heart, and you meant it, unlike so many before you who have now gone….

    What a man, what a man!!

  23. rico says:

    Rasp, your 3.07 comment 😛 😛 😛

    That has to be the last chance he gets, surely ??

  24. Rasputin says:

    Hi rico … we shouldn’t talk negatively in any way afetr that result but Diaby will continue to feature – we all know it!

  25. rico says:

    Negative Rasp, surely we are not 😉

    We are discussing the way our team could improve it’s performance after such a result 😉 😉

  26. rico says:

    Off to watch a boring draw 😉

  27. rico says:

    Bearing in mind B’burn are sponsered by Crown Paints…

    Would you not agree that the game today was truly

    Matt V’s Gloss 🙂 🙂

  28. Rasputin says:

    A Blackburn fan has just posted on the BBC football site that Robinson should be considered for the England job after today’s performance. They conceded 6 and think he is England’s number one! ……. We must have been capable of scoring 10 ……

  29. rico says:

    At least he looks cute when picking the ball out the net Rasp 😉 😉

  30. Rasputin says:

    The fans at the Emirates have certainly had value for money this season – unlike that bore taking place at Stamford Bridge…

    I wonder if a centre back has ever finised a season in the prem as top scorere or even got 10 goals in a season … I think TV is going to be a record breaker this season. If he carries on at this rate (too much tom expect) he would have 25+ by the end of the season 😛

  31. Rasputin says:

    Sorry about the typos … mon kyberoad’s gonk rung

  32. avenell says:

    Vieira is at Chelsea because he was late too late to get to the Arsenal game.. the plot thickens. or are they just celebrating Arsene’s 13 years??

  33. rico says:

    Vieira at Chelsea Ave ?? Honest 😦

  34. rico says:

    Drogba is such a cheat….

  35. rico says:

    I have to say, I hate the Dippers so much I am glad they are losing – we will beat the chavs, so I hope Stevie Me me me me me and his side get tonked!!

  36. Freire says:

    Look at the bright side, ppl. The first Rover’s goal was assist by Robinson. LOL. – I laughed at him since his spuds times. poor keeper!

    One of the best Cesc games I’ve ever seen.

  37. peachesgooner says:

    Well well well, didn’t I say it was a lovely day for football 🙂

    That game was the most romantic game so far played at the Emirates – Arsenes 13th year, Thierry Henry watching, 6 goals from 6 different players, Theo scoring on his come-back, Cesc playing like Cesc, Nikki desperate to score and scores a fabulous goal, Van Persie had to be man of the match although my footie friend that accompanied me reckoned it was close between him and Cesc. The defending was diabolical but ‘peachesball’ lived and breathed life into the Emirates today…..

    ‘We’re gonna score umpteen more than you’… 😆

  38. peachesgooner says:

    Oh and that very nice Andy Gray on Sky sports only had good things to say about us……did I dream today?

  39. rico says:

    peaches – for me, Cesc was by far the MOM – 3 assists and one goal – dream stuff 😉 😉

    You must have had a fab day…

    Im off all, night night

  40. rico says:

    Morning Roadsters

    Fat Sam is whinging – no change there then !

    No Theo for England – good, he won’t get injured

  41. rico says:

    Can’t believe we have another break for stoopid international games, just when we are hitting top form, just hope no-one gets injured 😦
