New York or London, you can still love The Arsenal…….

Yesterday my sister, her husband and their son came to visit -I’d like to think it was to see me, but I know it was to see the new additions in our family! 😉

It’s funny though, both my brother in law and nephew, like me, were born within ten miles of the old Reading ground, Elm Park and during our younger years went to watch them play and still do, but like me, Reading are not their ‘real’ team, theirs is Liverpool! (ARGH!)

They are all going off to the Madejski Stadium for the FA Cup match between Reading and Liverpool and I asked them both who they wanted to win. Without hesitation, they both replied Liverpool and for one second I was surprised and questioned them.

My brother in law replied – Well who would you want to win if it were Reading v Arsenal and without a second thought I said, ‘Arsenal’….

My point? Cesc is born and bred a Spaniard, and Barcelona was his childhood team, but deep down you can develop a true love for a new club as many of us have. And Cesc’s new club and TRUE club is ours! Anymore rubbish in the paps about him I won’t be reading anymore, let alone believing..

Tomorrow we are off to play a side by the coast that are fighting for every point they can get.
I have to be honest, and no disrespect to the opposition, but we should win and win well, I just hope we can do it without our little gem Cesc, he needs to rest his injury properly. That’s if he is injured of course!

It will also be the penultimate game for Alex ‘Billabong’ Song – just read he is free to play against the Hammers on Saturday, but for Eboue, its his last game, if he plays!

What about the gossip as we head towards the transfer window?

This morning there isn’t any – not that I have found anyway!

We have just three days to go and the window opens – it will like sitting at home during the holiday period watching ‘Homes under the Hammer’ – what is up for auction and how much will we have to pay?
I have seen the programme, its dreadful, you get the ‘little person’ offering the right price for the house, then in comes Mr & Mrs Money Bags who bid against them just to secure the deal – a bit like us up against The Chavs and their millions!

Thankfully though, Arsene Wenger doesn’t enter that game, he will already know which player(s) he is going to buy, if any of course! He won’t enter a battle of the finances – he will just go about his business quietly in the background and then we will all leap like the ten lords once did and get very excited at the prospect of seeing a new 16 year old English player signed from under the nose of… Rafa or Fergie!!

Ok, again I am being cynical – but Wenger has made me feel like that over the last few years!

All I hope is that he does what we all hope, and he strengthens the squad just a little to see us over the line in the race for a couple of trophies….

Arsene says Cesc will be out for either three days, or three weeks – well that is helpful Arsenal! Other than that not a lot of gossip to report right now.. 😦

    Morning Roadsters,

    Can’t believe that we are not being linked to anyone new today, what with 1st January very close now…

  2. stonroy says:

    Rico good to see you out about on other blogs. I think Cesc will miss Pompey and the Hammers but be back for Bolton.

  3. rico says:

    TV is lording up Cesc today, and he is spot on, the little fella does have eyes in the back of his head – interestingly though he says that Cesc will be missed as he is important as is RvP – no mention of Nikki though 😉 😉

  4. rico says:

    Morning stonroy – how are you?

    Thankfully, our run of games favour us and if ever there was a time to have Cesc injured its now.

  5. stonroy says:

    Nikki has a lot to prove before we can put him in with the names of Cesc and RVP, a lot to prove. See you at Le Grove

  6. stonroy says:

    oh I’m great by the way. 🙂

  7. London says:

    Morning Rico

    Supporting Reading? I reckon you dodged a bullit there. Good point about how you can fall in love with a club and stay with them forever. I hope as you say that is the case with Cesc, what I find most telling is that he says the same things in the Spanish press as he does in the English about how happy he is to be playing at Arsenal. Top man.

  8. rico says:

    Morning London – they are having a tough time, but when I used to go they sometimes won 😉 😉

    His face after he scorced against Villa said it all London, he loves being just where he is..

  9. London says:

    Morning Stoneroy

    Don’t you think it is a bit fishy that the club have waited an extra day to scan Fabs leg? I would have thought that at the state of the art training ground they would have had the facilities to scan his leg every hour never mind wait a extra day to find out something so important.

  10. rico says:

    It was a BH yesterday London, maybe thats why the delay?

  11. London says:

    Are we supposed to believe that they don’t have the necessary facilities at the training ground? What have they been spending the money on? It certainly hasn’t been players.

  12. rico says:

    It was a tad tongue in cheek London 😉

  13. peachesgooner says:

    Morning all

    Good post rico – of course Cesc loves Arsenal – the paps are just stupid to think anything else……

    Happy Birthday Rasputin – where are you? 😀

  14. rico says:

    Morning peaches, and thanks 🙂

    We have a birthday boy eh, Many Happy Returns Rasp, how old today then??

    21 ???? 😳

  15. rico says:

    Got to pop out to the shops 😦 Back shortly

  16. London says:

    Oops, I see that I was a bit slow there Rico, looking at it again it’s quite funny.

  17. avenell says:

    Morning all..

    Ahhh rico’s back 🙂

    Not too much Arsenal news about then..

    Bit rough on van der Saar.. That’s him finished I guess.
    I wonder if Fergie will sign another keeper.

  18. rico says:

    Morning ave, I am indeed, life has settled a bit now and I get five minutes peace first thing in the morning 😉

    VDS?? What has happened to him?

  19. rico says:

    But ave, I never went, I just had a bit too much to do in the morning 😦

  20. avenell says:

    VDS’s missus has had a stroke and Fergie has given him as much time off as it takes..

    5 minutes.. 😯

  21. rico says:

    That is so very sad for him 😦

  22. rico says:

    Its vey quiet today… 😦

  23. JonJon says:

    ahhh…the old loyalty debate raises its ugly head again 😉

    while i have no doubts that cesc loves us and he has no intentions of leaving… i also feel that anything can be round the corner….

    it depends on cesc…does he have the same intentions as adams or bergkamp?? or is he from the same school of thought as henry or cole…??

    only time will tell but my guess is one day he will leave and if we dont start picking up silverware it will be sooner rather than later…

  24. rico says:

    Hi JJ, I also think that Wenger plays a big part, but we should be safe with your theory as this season the trophies will start to be won… 😉

  25. JonJon says:

    january is crucial rico…

    im not bothered about the FA cup or the CL this year…we have never had a better chance at the PL as what we do now…

    we are like that horse in the grand national that tucks in and sits behind the leaders for the first half of the race and then begins to pull away when the rest have ran out of steam…..

    im a firm beleiver that we threw the title away 2 years ago becuase wenger didnt reinforce the squad to help the cause in january and we where that horse that ran out of steam becuase of it..

    i seriously hope that lessons have been learned from that season..

  26. rico says:

    I agree JJ, the fixtures have been kind to us for January, now all the club need to do is give us something/someone a bit ‘fresh’ 😉 – kick the others up the bum to fight for their places again, do that and the best will come from all of them.

    Diaby is desperate to play in the WC, I think he will step up for good now (i hope) he must think that the midfield slot is his with Song off?

    Look what signing AA did to the morale, we need at least one like him to come in…

    I want both CL and PL JJ, we are in with a darn good shout for both. WH away in the FA Cup is a tricky one, just hope they are concentrating on the league and resting a few …

  27. rico says:

    A great January and we will be top – a bit like Pilot all those years ago, and that would be Magic 🙂

  28. JonJon says:

    i went mad about the FA cup last year rico cos we were out of the title race and the CL was a disaster waiting to happen with the players we had…but i dont give a toss about it this year…i hope wenger fields the CC team against wham….

    your right about AA he pushed us on…we need another signing like that…an impact signing…maybe two…

    with the midfield now decimated those january fixtures look more difficult…

    denilson-back
    cesc-hamstring
    song-ACN
    diaby-inconsistent as an all round mid
    nasri-lacks form
    ramsey- not ready
    rosicky-finished

    i think a midfielder is more important than a striker at this minute in time…but both would do nicely 😉

  29. JonJon says:

    flamini??? back on loan…

  30. rico says:

    Put it like that JJ and yes the fixtures seem a tad more difficult – but

    I am not fussed over Denilson.

    Nasri will be desperate to prove his worth and maybe he is the best option in the absence of Cesc?

    The one player who I think we will miss is Song and I hope Wenger sees this too and gets cover in Jan.

    Personally I hope it is not Flamini, I hope its someone bigger and better.

    What is Flamini doing right now? Is he even playing?

    The big concern for me is without Cesc, who will score our goals? Will AW be ready to take a chance on Theo in the middle? Eduardo is dreadful right now and has no confidence in front of goal.

    I really hope we get two in, one striker and an Essien kind of midfielder..

  31. rico says:

    And of course, if Senderos does go as is expected, we defiantely need another CH!

  32. rico says:

    What is interesting JJ, we are only a couple of days away from the window and all is quiet, makes you wonder….

  33. JonJon says:

    flaminis on the bench at milan…hes not playing..

    denilson would have been the obvious choice rico to replace song but back injuries are difficult to shake off…he could be in and out of the team fo a while…

    if diaby can stay fit he can take the cesc role but in a more direct way…

    nasris ok but hes poor away from home..his contribution has been minimal..

    definatley not theo..hes doing well where he is…

    we need an all action midfielder and we have none..someone who can come in for a few games and sit and hold the midfield and let diaby attack..flamini would be perfect…

  34. rico says:

    I got slapped down by our leader for suggesting Diaby in the Cesc role 😉 😉

    We disagree on Denilson JJ, I think he is weak in the challenge and Song is far far better – against AV he covered the defence really well and on many occasions made the last tackle stopping AV.

    That’s what I mean about Flamini, he is sat on the bench at AC, who is keeping him out? He will be unfit and hope we never see him again in an Arsenal shirt…. 😉

  35. rico says:

    At least Song is playing tomorrow and against WH..

    Maybe Frimpong, JET or Coquelin will have their chance…

    Blimey, I hope he has the deal done for a HM…. 😉

  36. Alfa says:

    My first post, 40 years a gooner, thankfully married to an equally fanatic gooner. Just for the record, even if we don’t win anything, I’d rather be watching the best football anywhere in the world week in, week out at the Emirates.

    Don’t we need a goalkeeper more than anything else right now? I definitely agree about missing Song, he is key, but I worry more about Almunia than anyone else. That punch on Sunday and his kicking pretty much summed him up for me – I like the guy but he makes everybody nervous.

  37. JonJon says:

    song is far better rico…

    but when he goes i would have thought denilson is the only choice we have to play that role…

    there is nobody in that team who can do what cesc can do so we have no replacement…but diabys ok when hes running at defenders..

    the problem we have is that at some point the midfield will be nasri ramsey diaby…

    which has no defensive solidarity whatsoever…none..

  38. JonJon says:

    it has gone all quiet on the transfer front..but its the same for every team….

    but i do wonder if he has his targets already in the bag…

  39. JonJon says:

    two of ramsey, diaby and nasri can play the cesc role if they play together…im not even bothering to mention rosicky..

    its two for the price of one but it should do the business up until cesc come back hopefully for the villa game…

    what we need is someone who can play behind those two and let them attack…

    songs going in two games and i doubt denilson will be back…and other than looking at a few teenagers from the reserves who else do we have??? other than square pegs in round holes..

  40. JonJon says:

    unless wenger has the balls to move TV into the middle for a few games???

  41. avenell says:

    Hi alpha sorry for the delay in letting you on, your posts will be instant from now on.
    Welcome to avenell road.. 🙂

    JJ keep your eye in the dash if you can.. cheers.

  42. JonJon says:

    hi ave..

    hello alpha…

    yeah i sort of agree about the GK…but what about fabianski??? i think it would be unfair on him to go out and spend money on a new keeper..

    i think we have other areas we need to deal with…GK maybe isnt a priority right now…if we keep scoring 2-3 goals a game we should be ok..

  43. London says:

    Interesting little debate guys. The way Fabregas limped off on Saturday common sence suggests that he is out for three weeks and back injuries don’t get better over night and what with Song gone I am trying to work out what the team is going to be against Bolton on the 6th Jan

    ———–Almunia
    Sagna,Gallas,Vermaelen,Traore
    —–Ramsey,Diaby,Nasri
    –Walcott,Arshavin,Eduado

    We will probably score a lot of goals but we also just as likely to concede a lot aswell.

  44. London says:

    Hi JJ

    I do agree that all he needs to do is move Vermaelen into the midfield and everything is hunky dory.

    Gallas gets on well with Silvestre so that should be alright as well.

  45. JonJon says:

    hi london yeah thats the midfield i think too…diaby and AA are our only goal threat…the rest of that team are out of sorts…and there is no defensive soundness..

    i think wenger should adapt your theory;

    ———-almunia
    sagna,gallas,silvestre,traore
    ———–tv
    ——ramsey,diaby
    —-nasri,Arsh,dudu

    and use that until cesc and song returns..unless we buy a new midfeilder

  46. rico says:

    Sorry JJ, I went AWOL to shut up chickens, rabbits cats… now I am ker-put!

    Hi alpha, good to see you here, in an ideal world we would be getting four players, a keeper included… 🙂

    What about Merida JJ, I think he is the nearest we have to Cesc, I know he is young but we saw against Liverpool what he can do. Song’s cover is the real real problem

    Hi London, that side is definately very weak in the middle – Ramsey, Nasri and Diaby are all attacking players and you are right, we would concede too many…

    So, just who honestly can fill the gap left by Song??

    Surely he will buy, and JJ, I reckon he has someone and the deal is alreay done, maybe that Matudi guy your ‘tomato sauce’ said we had secured in the summer??

  47. London says:

    Or the third option being, play it until the end of the season. Lol

  48. rico says:

    Break TV and Gallas up and I think the defence would go to pot – ok for the FA Cup, but don’t we want to win the PL ?

    Don’t forget Senderos is off, that is for sure, otherwise he would have played by now…

  49. London says:

    I cant see him buying a player in a million years just to fill in for the couple of weeks that Song is away.

  50. London says:

    If Senderos goes I would bet the house that he buys another defender; he might be another up and coming defender which is ok as he will be expected to spend most of the time on the bench as cover for Gallas and Vermaelen.

  51. rico says:

    Mine would be

    Almunia/Fabianski

    Sagna TV Gallas Traore

    Nasri Coquelin Diaby Rosicky

    AA Eduardo

  52. London says:

    I forgot about Merida….good call

  53. London says:

    Including Rosicky is cheating and besides he is not expected back until after that game 😉

  54. JonJon says:

    maybe a player on loan london??

    meridas another attacking option…the player we need is a duracell bunny type player

    rosickys finished and we have lots of attacking players in the middle so wenger may see it as an opportunity to bring in another defensive type player as a long term replcement for tomas sqaud place..

  55. rico says:

    If Arsene is honest with himself he will know that selling Senderos and then relying on Silvestre to cover for TV or Gallas would be the one of the ‘silliest’ things he could do.

    I reckon Gallas could be off in the summer and any player he buys will know that his time will be from then onwards. We play so many games, we need three top class CH’s and right now we dont have them 😦

  56. JonJon says:

    that could also be the plan…

    sell senderbramble and bring in a new defender…then move TV into the middle for a few games… 🙂

    my heads in bits now…i hate trying to second guess wenger… lol

  57. rico says:

    Coquelin is a duracell player just waiting for his chance…

    I honestly think Merida is the closest player we have to Cesc, I hope he plays in that role against the Hammers, see what he is made of then let the lad play.

  58. rico says:

    I am surprised about the call for TV to go into midfield…

    I must be missing something big time, he is the one who has steadied our defence, and got Gallas back to very near his best….

    Who wrote ‘if it aint broken, why fix it’ ?? 😉

    Where are you ave…

  59. London says:

    That works for me

  60. JonJon says:

    meridas going to be a fine player..so is coquelin…but not yet…

    i dont think gallas will leave..hes enjoying his best year at the club playing with TV and i think hes got another 2 years in him at the top…he’ll sign

  61. London says:

    The clock will be broken on the 6th when we play Bolton 😉

  62. London says:

    Good call about Gallas….like the logic.

  63. London says:

    It is getting more and more difficult imagining Rosicky still being at the club next season

  64. JonJon says:

    rico, TV has all the attributes to be our missing piece in the middle…

    as london said before hes wasted in the defence…

    energy, desire, committment, heading, tacking, marking, shooting, 50-50’s passion…

    with him in the middle the defence would never be tested… 😉

  65. kelsey says:

    Evening all.

    I see Rosicky and Senderos are in the squad for tomorrow.

  66. rico says:

    I am not so sure, I reckon he will want to finish his football career in France – Paddy is rumoured to be returning to France either in the summer or Jan, and I bet Gallas does the same…

    He may have two years in him, but he is over thirty, and we all know what that means….

  67. JonJon says:

    whos call on galla, london?? mine or ricos??

    also good call on rosicky too…i feel the same..for what we pay him to sit on the sick bed we could be developing 3-4 youngsters…or signing a duracell bunny whos legs are like iron…

  68. rico says:

    JJ, I agree, he is the everything we need to stand in for Song, but at what cost would it be to move him, that is what concerns me…

    Do you want Silvestre alongside Gallas????

    I for sure do not…

  69. London says:

    Welcome Alpha

    Hey guys Alpha is a friend of mine

    I hope you read the report yesterday I was very proud of that, if you haven’t here goes.

    https://avenell.wordpress.com/2009/12/28/twenty-eight-minutes-of-pure-genius/

    We need all the friends we can get here so your comments are very welcome and remember you can write about what ever you want: good things, bad things, moan, rant, whatever.

  70. rico says:

    Hi kelsey, Rosicky I think I think will start, the Senderos deal with Everton/A.Madrid must have fallen through then….

  71. rico says:

    I think so much, I said it twice 😉

  72. rico says:

    That is cheating London, any friend of yours should have read it yesterday 😉 😉

  73. kelsey says:

    Can’t see Senderos playing, I am sure he is already sold,but for how much ?

    I would like to see Ramsey start for Cesc tomorrow and I agree with JJ that we will see basically a CC team at West Ham.

    I know our injuries are enormous,but I still believe we play too much football in the PL. Why have 2 cup competetions.I will argue against AW that playing the younger players for two or three games in the CC gives them experience.
    The FA Cup is tradition and used to be the highlight of the year.I would not include the CL teams in the CC and those like Liverpool and Celtic who fall at the first round shouldn’t go into the Europa Cup. it’s all about money and TV rights IMO

  74. JonJon says:

    hi kelsey…

    is rosicky even fit??? thought he was dead..

  75. London says:

    Alpha

    By the way sorry for the delay, your comments will come straight up from now on.

  76. London says:

    Hi Kelsey

    Where have you seen the squad?

  77. rico says:

    Comment of the day just has to be this………..

    JonJon Says:

    December 29, 2009 at 5:21 pm edit

    hi kelsey…

    is rosicky even fit??? thought he was dead..

    😛 😛 😛

  78. JonJon says:

    any friend of londons is a friend of ours… 😉

    yeah kelsey the money men run football nowadays…
    even international friendlies are about politics and making friends in high places…

  79. avenell says:

    London .. send alpha an e mail..

  80. kelsey says:

    London I read it on another site,it did also include fabregas, so it might be rubbish.

    Alll that coke has killed Him 😉

  81. avenell says:

    and I don’t know if you said this before me London.. but here is a clip from one of my player ratings October 5th..

    Vermaelen. 8.. Wow I want to see this geezer have a go in the Midfield, I think he could be the next Patrick Vieira there, tackles, passes well and what can I say about his shooting. RvP needs to keep having lessons off this man. Still a little dodgy defensively and never won the header for Blackburns first.

  82. London says:

    Ave

    I have just text him, he is a nice guy and a thoughtful one as well so we should get an interesting point of view.
    He’s got a wife and daughter that are Arsenal mad.

  83. JonJon says:

    i reckon its rubbish kelsey…i seen rosicky working back in asda stacking shelves with elvis…

  84. rico says:

    Did I mention something in the post about ‘Ten Lords a Leaping’…….

    Arsene Wenger will step up his bid to sign 15-year-old wonderkid Raheem Sterling next month – to stave off interest from a host of other clubs.

    The Arsenal boss has had the lightning-quick QPR striker – rated as highly as the young Wayne Rooney – watched on several occasions, including Rangers’ reserve game against Aldershot earlier this month, which finished in a 2-2 draw.

    Since that match Sterling, who turned 15 on December 8, has been promoted to training with the west London club’s first team.

    Rangers had been ready to make him the youngest first-teamer in their history in order to ward off the Premier League big guns.

    But the change of management which has seen Jim Magilton replaced by Paul Hart, plus the bad weather, has seen his debut shelved.

    Sterling is still on course to beat the Football League record set by Reuben Noble-Lazarus, who made his Barnsley debut at the age of 15 years and 45 days last season.

    But Hart, under pressure to deliver a play-off place, may not necessarily have Sterlingís future at the top of his agenda.

    Rangers are also well aware that even first-team football may not convince their rising star to stay once a firm offer from one of his many suitors comes in.

    Sterling has also been watched by the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City after he impressed at England Under-16 level as Kenny Swainís team clinched the Victory Shield.

    In total 12 different Premier League clubs watched Sterling on that occasion

    Although he is being tracked by the biggest clubs in the country Sterling is said to favour a move to the Emirates because of Wenger’s record of success with young players.

    That said, Wenger is still set to move quickly to prevent Arsenal being drawn into a fight for the player’s services.

  85. JonJon says:

    its his temprement i like the most ave….

    none of our other midfielders have it..songs been magnificent but still lacks something to me…

    TV’s got it…that attitude whats says get past me if you can and if you do your losing a limb…

  86. rico says:

    Personlly I think any view from a Gooner is interesting 😉

    ok ave, you said it first, Blue Peter badge on its way 😉

  87. avenell says:

    London.. if he is a friend of yours I am sure he’s a tolerant guy.. 😉

  88. rico says:

    Ok, you all want TV in the midfield, so who in the defence then????

  89. JonJon says:

    rico, that could be bad for simpson..QPR may kick up a stink with the lad being a toddler and all…simpson may go the other way to avoid tribunal… 😦

  90. avenell says:

    Rico I am not sure if I did.. it was bugging me..
    I remember us all having the Rosicky as cesc debate and I thought it stemmed from that..

    I think we all subconsciously pick up ideas from each other..

  91. rico says:

    I see what you mean JJ, and I hope Simpson stays..

    But it was a moment of fun really, taking the pee out of myself for what i wrote this morning…

  92. rico says:

    Just teasing ave 😉

    I hope he stays where he is….

  93. Alfa says:

    Thanks for all the welcomes everyone.

    London, I read your report, spot on. I missed the bit about the Arshavin-Dunne mismatch though 🙂

  94. JonJon says:

    rico…a new defender… 😉

  95. avenell says:

    Everyone will dissapear now alpha and you will get a complex.. that’s what happens to me anyway..

  96. kelsey says:

    Hello Alpha,

    I am the oldest,but by no means the most knowlegable.A realist, sometimes i agree with wenger sometimes not.

  97. kelsey says:

    spoke to soon ave.

    An idea why don’t you liven up the top of the page, and get rid of some of the headings,like girlie bits,raifs terminology and replace with Contact us. What this site is all about, Guest writers etc.

  98. London says:

    Alpha

    I couldn’t find a way of getting the Arshavin-Dunne miss match in. Still, I am glad you liked the report by the way I like your choice of name “Alpha” if can be shortened to Al or Alf or even the very friendly Alfie which is what Peaches will almost certainly call you.

    I am stuck with this very unfriendly name…..it made sense when I first started writing from Barcelona.

  99. London says:

    Kelsey

    I quite like the raifs bit tbh.. Girlie bits is heading west.. But the guest writer bit is a good idea..
    The only problem I have with it is if someone sends a load of crap in. (like I write) you have to try not to offend them if you don’t use it..
    I have a few spare email address I will get Mrs avenell to look into the contact one Kelsey, good idea.

  101. avenell says:

    Yes Lonnie.. 😉

  102. Alfa says:

    Even better if you use Alfa – like the car – stylish, fast and agile or rusty, over-priced and a poser; take your pick.

  103. kelsey says:

    Ave,

    you misunderstood me.Raif has his own site and the termonology is good,but shouldn’t be a feature in the headline of AR imo

  104. avenell says:

    Sorry Alfa.. I just looked back, my quality spelling started all that off..
    It wasn’t “welcome Alpha” chaps it was “welcome alfa”.. 😳

  105. JonJon says:

    my grandad was called alf..good name…

    london i still like ‘the don’.. 😉

  106. Alfa says:

    Avenell, no problem, it’s all the same thing. Anything printable works for me.

  107. avenell says:

    Alfa.. if you enjoy the blogging you’ll have to get London to get you avatar’d up..

    Do you go to the footie with Chaf and Benwell too?
    (long time no hear from those two) 😦

  108. Alfa says:

    By the way, back on the topic, I can vouch for there being gooners all over the world, including New York.

    The most unlikely I ever met was the waiter in a little tourist hotel in the middle of nowhere in Germany. We’d driven for 6 hours in search of a mythical castle and by the time we found it had to stay over in this hotel, which was a magical place but a bit like Dracula’s guest house. Turned out the (German) waiter was a long term gooner, knew the teams and results going way back, and couldn’t stand any of the German sides. So taste does exist everywhere.

  109. Alfa says:

    I’ll have to talk to London about who Chaf and Benwell are but quite possible, yes.

    Got to sign off for now, but thanks all again for making me welcome.

  110. avenell says:

    Nice talking to you Alfa..

  111. London says:

    He does go with Benwell and Chaf he just doesn’t realise it yet lol

  112. avenell says:

    Do they sit in seats marked A’ B’ and C’ ?

    Bit quick there Mr avenell 😉

  113. JonJon says:

    draw tonight guys???

  114. avenell says:

    Or a Villa win.. I wouldn’t mind them beating Citeh and the Spuds to 4th..

  115. JonJon says:

    im just thinking about us really…doesnt three points put them levelwith us??

    i know we have 2 games in hand but i still like extra daylight…

    a draw would be great but i’ll settle for a villa win

  116. London says:

    Yeah, draw or Villa win would be best

  117. avenell says:

    If Man City get rid of that knob after his 6 months contract is up coz they don’t finish in the top 4 Maureenho could be Ade’s new manager come summer.. that would be interesting.. 😉

  118. JonJon says:

    they wont finish top four…they bought aload of shite…

    i dont think any manager will want that job soon…6month lifespan isnt quite long enough

    those sheiks will get pissed off soon and realise it wasnt all its cracked upto be…

  119. avenell says:

    Tevez is doing a one man operation.. as usual.. I remember us saying what a player he would be for Arsenal..

  120. JonJon says:

    hes a good player…too ugly though to play for us.. ;0
