Arshavin ‘n’ Denilson back, Theo’s not a worry…. and Eduardo is Important…

Yes, important, not impotent – despite his lack of fire power recently! 🙂

Day 6 of the transfer window and I just can’t see what is really going on in Arsene Wenger’s mind. One day he is not buying, the next day he might, then he wants to wait for other teams to start the ball rolling and THEN, he says he wants to buy two – that is two players, not two year olds who have a good left foot and one day they could be good!!

At this point I feel I need to say that I love the boss, I don’t want him sacked, he is the best manager we have ever had…. blah blah blah, its fun folks, just fun!!!! Get It??

Now where was I, ah yes, Arsene in his transfer market chat – Has he ever had so much to say pre and during a transfer window? I don’t think so, for me this could be a very interesting month for Arsenal… I will remain optimistic; despite Rasp keep telling me not too 😉

Wenger also says that signings won’t stunt the youth, so maybe we are going to get a couple of players who have season or two left in them, a season or two to help the ‘kids’ grow in their game, a season or two to just give us a bit more experience to help us win silverware!

Rumours are this morning that we are going to offer £9M for Carlton Cole, and Big Willy is finally in talks with the club and better still Arsene is considering break his ‘over 30’ rule. Just a shame he hasn’t done that before with some who have left 😦

Anyway, time will tell and so will the next 25 days….

If the game goes ahead tonight, Denilson and Arshavin are back and Arsene has said that Denilson will fill the role left void by Song – PHEW, thank goodness Diaby didn’t get to play there. He is on his best run yet so why try and stifle the man in a defensive/holding role?

Ok, we have no Cesc and no Robin. The latter we are used to, Cesc has been missing before and we went on a winning streak without him, now we can do it again and make our skipper proud!

Another absentee is Walcott, out with a rib injury; our leader has this to say:
“I believe between 19 and 22 you have players who go through periods like that,” said the Frenchman.
“The body settles and stabilises and finds a balance to cope with all the stress you face in top-level competition.
“I am not concerned over a longer period. In the short term I would like him to be available.”

We will be up against a side that has absolutely no chance tonight. Yes they will be excited about the prospect of getting a new manager, he may even be in place by the time kick off takes place but we all know one thing – a good team doesn’t become rubbish overnight and equally, a poor team doesn’t suddenly become good overnight – so manger or manager less, Bolton have no chance of even taking a point of us tonight.

This is our home, our fortress and we are going to win.

This is our game in hand, our chance to get ourselves right in the face of the Moneybag Chavs!

The Chavs have now lost Essien and Drogba – the heart of their midfield and the main man up front – let’s see just how good they are without them and with a little bit of pressure… That is why tonight the boss needs to pick the best and show the rest, just how good we are, just how much we are in this title race, and most importantly show the world just how much we want this trophy!

And finally, talking of trophies, the boss has said he may not rest any player for the FA Cup game against Stoke – Hoorah Arsene, we want that trophy so so much, glad to hear you do too….

I am going for a confident display, a huge win and 3 massive points for us tonight – 5-1 😛

Come 10pm tonight, we will be second….

All we can do now is wait to see if the game is on, where I live we have had 6-7 inches of snow, and that’s ladies inches 🙂

Any Newbies, Welcome aboard but plaese mind your P’s and Q’s otherwise you go straight to spam 😦

    Morning Roadsters

    Surely the game will be off – its really bad where I am 😦

  2. Corey says:

    F**K… that just sucks to much. Feels kinda like giving points to the Mancs, letting them stay second for a longer time than necessary.

    Good blog by the way, first time i come across it.

  3. alfamilano says:

    Sky saying they expect the game to be on.

  4. alfamilano says:

    Morning all by the way.

  5. stonroy says:

    Hey all. Doesn’t look like the game wll go ahead by the sounds of it.

  6. rico says:

    Welcome Corey, and thanks –

    I have edited one of your words, we mind our p’s and q’s here 😉 Don’t let that put you off though 🙂

    Morning stonroy and alfa, fingers crossed it will be on..

  7. alfamilano says:

    Morning stonroy. Depends on the travel I guess. Sky are saying it is still on at the moment – I bet they find out first if it is off. Bolton are already in London.

  8. stonroy says:

    Morning Rico, morning Alfa. Yeah it’s all about if it’s deemed safe to travel.

  9. Daniel says:

    this is my first time being here, love it !

  10. rico says:

    Look on the bright side, us armchair fans might get to see it on Sky if it’s on as the other games are off 😆

  11. alfamilano says:

    Much as I want the game to go ahead, I’m not looking forward to the lottery on the trains.

    Morning ave.

  12. rico says:

    alfa – ave is still in snoring I expect 😉

  13. kelsey says:

    morning is inches a banned word 😉

    Is this a sex advisory site or a football blog for perverted arsenal supporters.

    Who threw the keys in first last night?

    Joking apart Happy Xmas from Spain, today is our official 3 Kings day.

  14. alfamilano says:

    Good point rico, I misread your post and thought it was ave.

    I’ve probably gravely insulted one or both of you now 🙂

  15. alfamilano says:

    Morning kelsey.

    What is 3 Kings day?

  16. siddharth says:

    para 2 last line.. are you sure he didnt mean with a good foot left? seeing as we have the bucket list of injuries??

    anywhoo great blog.. hopefully it doesnt get too popular 😛 becomes a pain posting with 100 odd replies..

  17. kelsey says:

    3 Kings Day is the official Spanish Xmas day, something connected to the last night of 12 after our Xmas.

  18. Mustang says:

    Theo is begining to worry me a bit, does it mean that he ends up on the treatment table anytime he gets a decent tackle? He needs to toughen up otherwise he needs to pick up athletics, we all know we need someone to compete against Bolt in 2012. But seriously, I have seen other smaller players take crunching tackles without bathing an eyelid while Theo seems a bit scared to take players on.
    As for the game tonite, I don’t expect an easy game, not by a long stretch. This is Bolton bullies looking to make an impression on a new manager!
    All you folks fall for the same Wenger spin every window, all talk to keep the days ticking and come the end no new singing and we all say “ah well we have the youngsters coming through”. When will we learn?
    Sorry folks if I appear all pesimistic, I think I woke up on he wrong side of the bed this morning.

  19. rico says:

    No probs alfa 🙂

    Morning sid, thanks 🙂

    Merry Christmas kelsey 😉 😉

  20. rico says:

    Mustang, it’s great fun guessing though, I think deep down as we all are today in snow, we all know he probably won’t buy anyone 😉

  21. alfamilano says:

    Thanks kelsey.

  22. rico says:

    alfa, is the weather really bad in London?

  23. kelsey says:

    Is this a joke:

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will launch a £9m move for West Ham striker Carlton Cole if Nicklas Bendtner fails a fitness test on Friday. “If Bendtner is out for another two months we will need to buy someone, absolutely,” admitted Wenger.
    Full story: The Sun

    Surely why publisize the fact,totally stupid.

  24. rico says:

    That is probably a really daft question I have just asked 😦

  25. kelsey says:

    I hope we play tonight,might be on sky.If they cancel it late morning i am sure the media will blame Arsenal for the weather.

  26. rico says:

    Its the Sun though kelsey 😉

  27. W.A.T.H says:

    Mornin all, Nice post rico… see your up to ur ole tricks again….. ;-)7 inches or 7 fingers…. lol… Happy Xmas Kelsey…! least u ain’t got a snow prob…!. Pleases AW mentioned Big Willy’s new contract most important. Not keen on the Sol return rumours either………….

  28. W.A.T.H says:

    Kelsey, have heard whispers about Cole for a few months now and 2b fair to him I’ve never been a fan but in the lge game there he was the best player on the pitch…!

  29. alfamilano says:

    Sorry Rico, stepped away.

    It is getting quite bad in North London (I live in Barnet about 10 miles from the Emirates). About 3 inches of snow where we are and it is now getting heavier. Schools are generally closed. The Northern Line tube is suspended in our neck of the woods. The Picadilly Line and overground are still running to Finsbury Park but if they go they there is pretty well no chance of anyone getting to the game unless they walk.

  30. rico says:

    Morning WATH, thanks 😆

    Old tricks 😉

    I hope Cole does sign for us, I really like him and he would give us something very different

  31. alfamilano says:

    Is Cole pretty good and getting better? Yes

    Is he the next Henry? No

    So why would we want him?

  32. rico says:

    No worries alfa, I had gone off too, just being trying to clear some snow to get to our chickens, bit too deep to let them out today 😦

    Not good then, the only good thing is apart from the away fans all will be season ticket holders going, I am sure if was pay at the turnstile AFC would call it off, afraid of losing out on some money…

    Pie sales will be down though 😉

  33. rico says:

    Off for half an hour, be good all 🙂

  34. alfamilano says:

    The predict the attendance will be announced as 59,000+ regardless. If the snow stops, 60,000+

    Any Emirates regulars will know what I mean 🙂

  35. W.A.T.H says:

    Your counting those “empty” sold seats alfa…. lol…! be good rico…!

  36. W.A.T.H says:

    We don’t expect an Henry though do we alfa….? we just want someone to offer us something different put himself about win headers hold the ball up and score goals… Not to much to ask surely 🙂

  37. Rasputin says:

    Morning Roadsters,

    Excellent post rico!

    I think for £9m Carlton Cole would not be a huge gamble. I would have preferred if we’d gone for RSC in the summer but he has been blighted by injury. CC is injured at the moment but it’s not fair to say that he’s injury prone. You can never tell how a player will do when he moves to a new club. I always thougt that Darren Bent had the potential to be a goodf player and he is far better at Sunderland where he is ppreciiated. If he gets 20 goals this season, he could end up somewher like manure as they too don’t have a Bent/CC type player.

  38. Rasputin says:

    apologies for all the typo’s – I’m not slysdexic honest 😉

  39. W.A.T.H says:

    Mornin Rasp, agree I always liked Darren Bent and he’s also a Gooner hence the open goal he scuffed against us at the lane the other year 🙂 It’s about service and comfidence and the swamp dwellers ruin many a decent player…!.

  40. Rasputin says:

    Morning W.A.T.H,

    Peaches knows the Bent family, Dazzer hates the scum and still has his house in N. London, his whole family are staunch gooners. kelsey is right, the Sun is not to be trusted, there probably isn’t any substance to the CC rumour, but I’d like to see how he’d perform as a target man in our system.

  41. alfamilano says:

    I agree that comment about ‘arry’s wife scoring the open goal that Bent missed was poor management.

    Personally I do think that we don’t need another striker unless they are close to the top of European football. Yes CC would give us something different. But we’ve scored 50 goals already in the PL. Would CC have helped us against Chelsea? Or Man U at the end of last season? I don’t think so. Unless Arsene has seen something special that he can bring out.

  42. peachesgooner says:

    Morning all

    Several inches – male and female – fallen in my part of north london, not too far from your part alfa….and its snowing steadily.

    I think it will be very mean of Arsenal to let the game go ahead with a crowd of 59,000 😉 when it might be nearer to 5,000. Unless Islington council have sent the army in to clear around the ground I can’t see how it can go ahead. Added to which the temp this evening will be below freezing and the stairwells inside the ground will be dangerously icy.

  43. peachesgooner says:

    Of course if I didn’t have a poor foot and was able to contemplate walking I’d probably be looking forward to going – now that alfa reminded me about special coffee 😉

  44. London says:

    Morning Roadsters

    I feel reasured by Wenger emphatically answering Yes to the question: If it seems like Bendtner is going to be out for a further two months will you buy another striker?

    We can however also read this to mean that if Bendtner is fit then he won’t be buying any one.

  45. alfamilano says:

    Peaches, I can’t see us going to be honest. Even if we get there I can see the trains all getting suspended as the freeze sets in tonight. If it does go ahead Arsenal ought to give us an extra cup game on the season ticket for free.

    Have some special coffee at home instead.

  46. London says:

    Morning Alfa

    I go by bike so that could get a bit hairy tonight.

  47. peachesgooner says:

    I reckon there’ll be a huge backlash if it goes ahead – Arsenal have the information from all those travel surveys they asked us to fill in when the Emirates opened and they know that many supporters travel from outside London postal codes to get there.

  48. London says:

    I can’t see that this is any different to the game that went ahead last night at Stoke……as things stands I see no reason why tonight will be postponed.

  49. London says:

    I might have to fall off the wagon and buy double rations of Rum though 😉

  50. alfamilano says:

    Oh yes, the travel surveys. I wonder what happens to them?

    London, ‘a bit hairy’? You do know that your new best friend Song isn’t playing?

  51. peachesgooner says:

    But London I’ve got a bad foot and can’t walk long distances and if it goes ahead I want to be there – stamps good foot 😆

  52. alfamilano says:

    I agree, I think it will go ahead.

  53. rico says:

    Several inches of snowed moved and I can now see again 😉

  54. London says:

    Was that, stamps good foot in a princes kind of way?

  55. London says:

    Wenger needs to pick a team of Eastern Europeans: Fabianski, Rosicky and Arshavin; they will think it is summer out there.

  56. avenell says:

    Morning roadsters..

    cold innit?

  57. peachesgooner says:

    Yep – a real princess kinda stamp 😆

  58. rico says:

    Morning ave, you get the snow or the rain still?

    Live update from Emirates, game on but could be in doubt… mme, that helps Sky 😉

    Players are arriving at the ground and want to play 🙂

  59. rico says:

    The ref is Howard Webb who lives in Yorkshire, he may not be able to get there – good, lets hope they get a better one more local 😉

  60. peachesgooner says:

    Trust a load of blokes to not be able to make a decision about whether to play or not 😳

  61. avenell says:

    Hi Rico..

    We have had a bit of snow about 1/2″ needed the 4×4 to get out the gate.. I used to laugh at people in 4×4’s having them for one day a year.. Smug b**tards.. now I have joined them lol..
    Yet 5 miles down the road there is no snow, just green fields..
    Good post by the way.. nice one..

  62. peachesgooner says:

    I think they should play it this afternoon and put it on sky for us all to watch. Properly record the spectators – not guess and give those who havn’t managed to attend a refund or as alfa suggested a cup game later in the season.

  63. Mustang says:

    Love the banter on here! You seem to all know each other, nice……

  64. alfamilano says:

    London, Arshavin always wears gloves. Maybe he doesn’t like the cold. Plus, the snow will come up to his waist.

  65. rico says:

    Cough Cough, I have a 4×4, but it’s no bloomin good today, I can’t even see it 🙂

    Mustang 🙂

  66. avenell says:

    Hi Mustang.. a few have met.. We live all over the place.. Most just know each other from another blog, but it was a bit popular..

    So this sort of started..

  67. rico says:

    Citeh report loss of £92M – ha bloomin ha 🙂

  68. avenell says:

    Diesel will just go up a penny..

  69. alfamilano says:

    Mustang, I only joined a few days ago. I only knew London beforehand. It is very friendly here.

  70. peachesgooner says:

    Morning rico – sorry, good post.

    What I think is interesting about the surplus of young players now is that obviously they weren’t all going to make the grade and the problem will be when we have a Wilshire for example ready to step into the first team and someone has to make way for him.

    Arsene likes to keep his team selection consistent so he wouldn’t really go in for wholesale rotation like Fergie or Benitez. Of course he may already know his first 11 but half of them are injured 🙂

  71. rico says:

    Good link from Young Guns about Merida, we may get £3M compensation.. That’s another two players we will be able to afford 😉

  72. avenell says:

    Alfa.. There’s a lot of swearing lately.. 😉

  73. rico says:

    Thanks peaches, and morning to you too 🙂

  74. peachesgooner says:

    The most glaringly obvious problem he has is Clichy, Gibbs and Traore – but then we do have the ‘Curse of the Arsenal Left-back’ to contend with…….

  75. avenell says:

    3 million is a lot considering he only had 6 months left on his contract.. we couldn’t have paid much more for him..

  76. peachesgooner says:

    Morning ave 🙂

  77. avenell says:

    The good thing is Peaches there’s no chance of Cashley coming back.. 🙂

  78. rico says:

    Article by Arsene – tomorrows headline in The Sun will be

    Wenger in for Messi, swap deal with Cesc !! 😉

    Arsène Wenger has money in the bank for his January transfer dealings but he is determined to spend it responsibly.

    The Arsenal manager revealed last month that he would look to reinforce his squad in the New Year and admitted at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday that he wants to do business quickly.

    The Frenchman has funds at his disposal and has been linked with a number of players but, although he wants new recruits, he refuses to pay over the odds. That’s why Wenger will spend January doing what much of the British population does – hunting for bargains.

    “It’s my responsibility to spend the money in the right way,” said the manager.

    “Why should I splash it out and pay 10 [million pounds] for a player who is worth five?

    “It’s normal that you buy the players for the right price.

    “If [Lionel] Messi is available maybe you would spend the money. But you look at the financial situations of many clubs in England and it is because when the income was one they spend two.

    “There is an abnormality of the market because one or two clubs don’t need to look at the money, they just put the pressure on everybody else.”

  79. London says:

    I have my toys in a neat row at grabbing distance, ready to be jettisoned at a moments notice Lol

    I couldn’t resist that, it made me laugh.

    Hello Mustang

    It is not a clique, all Arsenal supporters are welcome to join in our banter.

  80. Mustang says:

    Thanks guys, good to find a blog where fellow gooners can have a good discussion about our beloved and have friendly banter at the same time……..

    ……….beloved football club that is.

  81. rico says:

    Bloomin heck, Owen Coyle has been placed on gardening leave by Bolton, what a shame he won’t get any done with all this snow 🙂 😆

  82. peachesgooner says: has pictures of the Emirates in the snow

  83. alfamilano says:


    I was asking for that comment 🙂

  84. rico says:

    peaches, they are fab, did i see a cover on seats in the team dugout?? They get it tough don’t they 😉

  85. W.A.T.H says:

    Mornin Av, Peaches you really think Wilshire is ready to play 1st team…? I don;t think he’s ready at all hence he needs a loan and when he comes back he may then be ready to put pressure on the midfield for a starting place..!

  86. avenell says:

    Morning WATH and Alfa..

    I suppose Wilshere will have to wait to see who the new Burnley manager is now..

    Unless Coyle puts a cheeky bid in for him at Bolton. 😦

  87. Rasputin says:

    Wilshere should go to on loan at wham and they can let us have CC at a knock-down price ….. or even better, we could take CC on loan to the end of the season with an option to but at the end?

  88. avenell says:

    I don’t mind the loan deal with an option to buy.. as long as the price is fixed first..

    I would hate to see Man City snap CC up if we make a player of him..

  89. W.A.T.H says:

    They’ll want the money Rasp they far to skint to let an asset go out on loan…?

  90. Rasputin says:

    I know you’re right WATH – I was just fantasizing… we’d pay his wages and LJ’s – that’d save them a few bob 😉

  91. peachesgooner says:

    Morning wath, no I don’t think Wilshire is ready now but at some point he will be as will Ramsey, Coquelin, Eastmond, Mannone and a few others that will be really good.

    Its an interesting problem that Arsene has given himself ……. I’m sure he relishes that thought

  92. avenell says:

    On the dreaded Talkshite this morning they was on about all the clubs in debt.. the top 4 and west spam etc…

    They never mentioned that we was the only club that built a £400 mill stadium and still have the highbury square assets.

  93. peachesgooner says:

    Thats a great plan rasp – Arsene would only let LJ go to a manager he respects and a team that plays football. Definitely not Bolton 😉

  94. peachesgooner says:

    ave – don’t you know we don’t really exist – we’re just a Fantasy Football team 😆

  95. Rasputin says:

    Actually £9m for CC is a snip. He’s got 9 goals in 134 appearances this season. If he played well for us to the end of the season he’d be worth £15-20m

  96. rico says:

    Hi Rasp

    AFC have just announced that they expect the game to go ahead tonight 😛

  97. rico says:

    9 goals in 134 matches Rasp, that doesn’t sound so good 😦

  98. rico says:

    Arsene has also confirmed he will bend the rules to keep Big Willy 🙂

  99. W.A.T.H says:

    I think Ramsey is ready Peaches….. He is where Jack needs to be in 12 months time, more mature more patient and really pushing hard to get picked, no doubting his talent but it’s the application of it that’s now so important. As you say it’s a big problem for AW and we are no doubt gonna lose a few of these players who will go on to be big players elsewhere but we can’t keep em all that’s a fact.

  100. peachesgooner says:

    So no-one liked my idea of playing it this afternoon and putting it on sky for all the world to watch 😛

  101. rico says:

    I think that dreadful game Ramsey had against Cardiff did him the world of good, from that day he has grown…

    Just like Gibbs slip against Manure (should that be in the manure) both I think learned a short sharp lesson and becomce much better players..

    That’s the sign of a player who wants to play the best…

  102. rico says:

    that is when the snow is meant to fall though peaches 😦

    Arsenal are 9 out of 10 for the game to be played ..

  103. peachesgooner says:

    Some would argue what was the point of having so many young players who were obviously going to benefit from being at Arsenal and then move on – paying their wages – not winning anything – where for the same money we could have had some quality and experience to carry the team along.

    Arsene has been a bit greedy maybe…. ??????

  104. Rasputin says:

    Bum … that’s 9 goals in 13 matches 😦

  105. W.A.T.H says:

    Aw def wanted his cake and 2 eat it Peaches when in fact a few older heads at the end of their careers could have come in and helped the kids not stood in their way and we could/would of been more competative and pushed harder for trophies…!

  106. peachesgooner says:

    Actally I can understand how the powers that be feel about cancelling the game – we all want it played – we all want to go 2nd – its like when you’re not very well but you have a party you really want to go to because you know its going to be a great party so you leave it as late as possible to put your make-up on but realise you look rubbish and feel worse and musn’t go 😦 😦 😦

    Are they hoping for a miracle do you think?

  107. peachesgooner says:

    I’m with you on that Wath – shall I tell him or will you?

    Thats a better stat rasp 😛

  108. peachesgooner says:

    Of course that analogy will be lost on you guys 😳

  109. rico says:

    Rasp 😆 Go get him Arsene..

    I think to that the balance is not best, but the same can be said about the balance of players in positions –

    we have 100 attacking midfielders, 1 defensive midfielder 4 forwards and 4 defenders ish 😉

  110. Rasputin says:

    I’m just braving ot down the lanes on foot to see if they have any eggs and milk at the village shop …. I may be some time … send out the huskies if I’m not back in 2 hours 😦

  111. rico says:

    Take poles Rasp 🙂

  112. Mustang says:

    CCole is a decent shout (though not match fit) unless AW dismisses him as an option as well. All the targets being speculated have so far been ruled out by Le Boss.

    Anyone one know how to do snow dance, we can all try and fend off the snow for tonite’s fame?

  113. Mustang says:

    …..tonite’s game that is.

  114. peachesgooner says:

    rasp – ever thought of a cow and chickens 😉

  115. W.A.T.H says:

    Didnt miss a thing Peaches 😉 I’ll tell him it’s fine he normally rings me on a friday lunchtime will mention to him then…!

  116. avenell says:

    Babel could be on his way to

    Good career move joining the Dippers..

  117. London says:

    Wasn’t Carlton Cole a chav not so long ago? When did Wham buy him?

  118. peachesgooner says:

    He moved to West Ham in 2006

  119. W.A.T.H says:

    He went on loan first from the chavs didnt he..? then spammers bought him…! I think.. lol, brain freeze…!

  120. peachesgooner says:

    His wiki page says he started in 2001 and went on loan to somewhere and then Charlton and Villa and moved to Wham in 2006 – I cheated 😦

  121. peachesgooner says:

    Big thankyou to Jimmy White – I’ve been rolling my foot on a cold can and it feels a lot better 😛

  122. avenell says:

    Better if you drink it…

  123. W.A.T.H says:

    Peaches cheated…. typical woman 😛

  124. peachesgooner says:

    This is lovely – oh maybe its just cos I’m a princess

  125. rico says:

    WATH – at least we cheat and then get our facts right, you boys cheat and still get it wrong 😆

  126. peachesgooner says:

    rico – how do the puppies like the snow?

  127. rico says:

    peaches, they absolutely love it thanks, one is a little smaller than the other and you could hardly see her in the snow first thing – trouble is they are in, out, in out all day, the kitchen is a mess 🙂

    The camera has been out and the camcorder thingy 😉

    Is it still snowing where you are?

  128. rico says:

    peaches, does that mean you are doing the can can now 😉 😉

  129. W.A.T.H says:

    rico thats really harsh… firstly I never cheat and secondly I never ever get it wrong………. lol 😛

  130. peachesgooner says:

    Yes its still snowing here – looks so beautiful. I left my car at the top of my road as last time I couldn’t get my car out of the drive for 3 days 😦

    The Can Can would be a real achievement but I’ll go for pain-free walking for now 😛

  131. peachesgooner says:

    Typical 😆

  132. London says:

    Good shout Peaches that was really funny, If the game is postponed that would have made a great match report tomorrow

  133. rico says:

    There are many cars by driveways here too peaches, its just they don’t belong to those who live in the houses 😉

    Glad to hear you are a little bit of pain free time, you have had that for a long long time now 😦

  134. rico says:

    Can’t believe I haven’t had a load of abuse today from my Eduardo comment 😦

  135. peachesgooner says:

    rico – there was an article in the Daily Mail yesterday about Jimmy White – hes had this foot problem for years 😦 😦 😦 I was so disheartened when I read it but one of the things that was suggested was to roll your foot over a cold drink can – my foot is now practically frozen maybe thats why it doesn’t hurt 😀

  136. rico says:

    Mine are too peaches, but thats because I have been shovelling snow 😦

    Thats good nes though, it must be quite a relief??
    Just don’t get too near a bonfire 😉

  137. peachesgooner says:

    I’m wondering how late Arsenal can leave a postponement announcement – its really snowing here again and I’m probably only 8 miles from the ground

  138. rico says:

    Its going to be played peaches, start making your way to the ground 🙂 KO is at 3pm 😉

  139. peachesgooner says:

    Good call rico – wheres rasp he loves this kind of thing

  140. peachesgooner says:

    Aren’t the Rednapps in the tv advert for Thomas Cook

  141. Rasputin says:

    I’m back … you can all stop worrying now 🙄

    101 for 0 in the cricket rico 😛 – they’ve set a target that’s gettable …. in my dreams ….

    I don’t think I’d call an ice cream after Hleb – maybe a sewage works, worm farm or infection of the nether regions …..

  142. rico says:

    😛 😛 Rasp, good call – Hlebage 😉

    Great about the crciket, haven’t been able to watch today, too busy wiping paws 😉

    Glad to hear of your safe return 🙂

    Yes peaches, but don’t book it, Thomas…… 😉

  143. avenell says:

    The bloke from SSN outside the stadium isn’t too confident the game will go ahead..

  144. alfamilano says:

    Snow getting worse again here in North London. Like I said before it all depends on the trains, which are OK at the moment. Bet they won’t be by 9.30 tonight though.

    It is pretty unfair on fans; getting stuck there after the match is even more likely than Theo getting injured again this season. Police are saying not to travel unless essential. A cup game maybe…

  145. rico says:

    That is not so good then ave, the inside is fine, but I guess they live in fear of being sued if anyone trips – maybe should tell everyone they have no chance of any litigation 😉

  146. peachesgooner says:

    rasp – thank goodness 😀

  147. Rasputin says:

    114 for 2 now rico … should’ve kept my big mouth shut 😦

  148. rico says:

    Hlebocrem 😉

  149. rico says:

    You should have Rasp 😉 😉 Must soon be it for Day 4, just one day to hang on in there, is Trott still in?

  150. peachesgooner says:

    This is so exciting wondering if the game is going to be on or not……….I have a blizzard here in the Winch……..

  151. rico says:

    Me too in Newbury peaches 😦

    Getting near ten inches of the white stuff having fallen now 😦

  152. peachesgooner says:

    Vermaelen Nut Crunch

  153. peachesgooner says:

  154. rico says:

  155. rico says:

    The Nut Crunch I mean 😉

  156. rico says:

    Al ‘n’ Eb’s soft scoop 🙂

  157. avenell says:

    Game is OFF.. 😦

  158. Mustang says:

    Game off tonite!!

  159. peachesgooner says:

    Le Grove are reporting the game is off

  160. rico says:

  161. rico says:

    So are peaches…

  162. peachesgooner says:

    More time to think up ice-cream names 😛

    I’m not really happy about it cos I’d just found myself a lift to the ground 😦

  163. rico says:

    Did you like my soft scoop peaches 😉

    At least I am not responsible for the match report tomorrow 😆 😆

  164. peachesgooner says:

    I’m not sure ‘soft scoop’ should be associated with our team rico but I love the Al’n Ed idea 😀

  165. peachesgooner says:

    Wenger’n Rice Delight

  169. peachesgooner says:

    I thought so London 😉

  170. rico says:

    I am sad its off, I wanted us up the tail of the chavs…

    Its def off, its even on 😉

    Where is that bloomin ave today….

  171. peachesgooner says:

    The way the chavs have been dropping points rico maybe we’ll get up ’em anyway and our game in hand can be the icing on the cake 🙂

  172. rico says:

    Liga giants Atletico Madrid have confirmed the club are interested in signing Arsenal starlet Fran Merida.

    The teenage Spaniard’s future remains uncertain with his Gunners contract due to expire at the end of the season.

    So he hasn’t gone just yet then ,,,,,,

  173. rico says:

    🙂 peaches, and the candles 🙂

    Off for dinner, back shortly 😉

  174. rico says:

  177. London says:

    Jonjon says hi by the way.. no internet connection..

    Its down to all of us 🙂

    I have to go now, night all stay safe

  180. rico says:

    Hi JJ 🙂

  181. Rasputin says:

    Just seen this….????

    “It seems that Arsene Wenger is closer to making that January window transfer of a much needed forward than he has led us to believe.

    And true to fashion he seems to be gunning for a relatively unknown Ivorian striker who is only 19, stands at 6ft 8 in and plays for Romanian side CRF Cluj.

    How do we now? Cluj’s president Iuliu Muresan himself has said so, to Romanian sports paper “Prosport”

    “We had a first contact with Arsenal, but have not yet received any concrete offer.

    Four million Euros is close to the amount we require to release the player.

    Traore will leave when we receive an offer close to its value. ”

    Traore himself has also spoken to the Romanian media expressing his amazement of Arsenal’s interest.

    “It would be like a dream to play in a team like Arsenal, but I do not want to think about that because there is nothing concrete yet and I do not want to raise my hopes too much”

  182. Rasputin says:

    Lacina Traore

    Born: August 20, 1990 (age 19) in Abidjan (Cote d’Ivoire)
    Height: 6’8″
    Position: Striker but can play as a midfielder
    League Clubs
    2007-08: Stade d’Abidjan – 10 games, 4 goals
    2008-10: CFR Cluj – 18 games, 5 goals

  183. peachesgooner says:

    Wow, 40,000 comments, well done to all of us and thanks to everyone who has helped to keep the blog going xx

  184. peachesgooner says:

    I’m laughing to myself that this guy is 6’8″ – how will that look in a line-up of our wonderful team 😆

  185. Rasputin says:

    He could put Arshavin in his pocket 😛

  186. Rasputin says:

    Night all … can’t wait for tomorrow’s headline 😎

  187. London says:

    Check out the left foot

  188. London says:

    Check out the right foot

  189. London says:

    Wenger you whily fox.
