Better news on Aaron….. Good luck Theo!!

What a day yesterday was, I don’t know about you guys and gals, but seeing all the replays of the horrid injury to Aaron Ramsey was just sickening and hard on the eyes.

So much so, it didn’t take long for me to close the newspaper and not look at any more videos or pictures, all I waited for and was despearte to hear was Arsenal make a statement, so yesterday afternoon it was good to read that Aaron’s operation was a success after surgery on a fractured fibula and tibia.

For anyone who hasn’t seen, there is a message board on where you can send your well wishes to Aaron Ramsey, a nice touch for the fans I think.

I honestly believe that Ramsey will heal quickly, he’s a young very fit man who could very well be back for the beginning of the new season, I guess we will know more when Arsene speaks.

So this morning Aaron should be back in London, and the bay boy Shawcross will be training with the England squad! Doesn’t seem quite fair really does it? The tackle was awful and even Graham Poll suggests it was no accident.

This is what he said in The Daily Mail – ‘There are very few genuine accidents in football. I accept that Shawcross did not intend any harm but his tackle was no accident’.

Life has to go on though and the team has to carry on with the same commitment they showed in the last ten minutes against Stoke. Take that in to the remaining fixtures and come the end of the season we will be lifting the Pemier League Trophy.

Talking of trophies, I watched the League Cup yesterday, what a boring game, Mancs should have had Vidic sent off when Villa had their penalty, same old rubbish refereeing in the Premier League, you know, the man in black with the Manchester United Badge on his shirt!!

Oh how I wish we had been playing in the final, watching the game neither side really shone, well, not until Rooney came on and stole the show. I think we could have won that game though with the attitude of the Stoke game – just imagine, it could have been you sat at Wembley cheering the team on.
You could have been sat watching on television, either way wouldn’t it have been great just sat watching Arsenal playing in a final, and at Wembley…….

The way Man UTD celebrated, you would have thought they had won the Champions League – you know what, I don’t balme them either. A trophy is a trophy and we need one badly!!

A strange piece of news from Saturday – Theo Walcott was included in the England big boys squad for the up and coming friendly against Eygpt – lucky old him, in fact very lucky because I can’t for love nor money see why he has been included. He probably wouldn’t had Lennon been fit. Good luck Theo, not only with the England bit, but staying calm around Ryan Shawcross!!

Another snippet from yesterdays news, Lardybayor wants a televised ‘honesty session’ with Arsene Wenger, he wants to prove to the world that he never asked to leave Arsenal!!

Two things Lardy,

1) If you were happy you wouldn’t need to shout about Arsenal or Arsene Wenger

2) You need to apply to the Jeremy Kyle Show, they sort lives out – alledgely!!

Thats about it really, a dull day yesterday in the world of Arsenal news, but the priority was finding out how Aaron Ramsey was – we now know he should be ok – thank goodness for that!

  4. Nemesis says:

    Contrast these two pundits; One of them Martin Samuel is objective and clearly thinks like a level headed reasonable human being–broken-legs-chance.html?ITO=1490

    The other one a sorry-state subhuman, demented Caveman with half an Ostrich’s brain spews his crap here

  5. rico says:

    Morning Erick, RSD, Nemesis, Welcome to Avenell Road

  6. Nemesis says:

    thanks Rico, i am an occasional reader; glad I found time to comment today; I need sleep though, it is 12:26am in my world:)

  7. W.A.T.H says:

    Mornin Rico, big difference between Aaron being ok and being ok to play football again….!. We’ve seen the scars the injury has left on Eduardo lets hope Aaron isn’t the same…!.

  8. rico says:

    Nemisis, good point – I think those who like us as a club see it one way and those who don’t see it the other – its sad these pundits can’t see beyond the club when a player is tackled in such fashion!

    I am sure there was no intent or malice, but a footballer should know that to go into a tackle above the ball is very very wrong and a three match ban is just nothing – especially when you compare it to Song who is now out for two because of ten ‘silly’ yellow card offences..

  9. Erick says:

    I bet his Mum will be coming for him yet again RSD 🙂 Morning Nemesis am tired of the people talking they know nothing of how Aaron feels and our squad lack of depth

  10. rico says:

    Love to be a fly on the wall there …

  11. Erick says:

    WATH i hope so from world class finisher to missing an open goal 😦

  12. rico says:

    Morning wath, for me the biggest thing is him just being ok, knowing he will walk again. When we know he can be back playing footie again, everything will be fantastic… He is young and strong, if anyone can, he can…

  13. rico says:

    Eduardo will get it back, maybe not this season, but he is another player who needs a long injury free spell..

  14. Erick says:

    Being an Arsenal fan is not easy friends you have to deal with boxers in the field, Media, Ref’s and Ex-player who wont shut it 😦

  15. W.A.T.H says:

    Mornin Erick, Yes Rico for me the lad must get better priority number one but am also sure he’s worried about his career…! Noone seems to see how its that bad a tackle but where is the ball when this savage kicks Aaron…? where exactly does he kick him…? and yet we have to listen to these experts swewing drivel that he the tackle wasn’t late or over the top…? if it wasnt over the top why is his leg it two…? from a kick to the shin bone and thats not over the top…! The word C**ts comes to mind ….! As said all over the place imagine if it was Ronney or Gerrard who been kicked like that……… Enough said…!

  16. Erick says:

    Rico Dudu gettn it back is is a big “IF” but dont get me wrong am KEEPING THE FAITH

  17. rico says:

    RSD, were you pleased with the way yesterday went?

  18. rico says:

    You won’t find anyone here arguing with your last wath, not one word of it!

    I think because it didn’t look like Roy Keans on Alfie Haaland (spelling) they dont see it as bad – thick idiots can’t seem to realise the outcome is the same!!

  19. rico says:

    Erick, i think now it a mental thing with Dudu, if he can get passed that he could just get his confidence back.

    He could do with a few games for the reserves..

  20. Sorry i missed most of it as a me nieces birthday party and the kids had to go sunday school before. We seemed to get some new people didn’t we.
    Tho cause we weren’t going for sensationalist headline we didn’t fly up nn charts.
    but it aint about that really is it.

  21. W.A.T.H says:

    Rico, def mental with Eduardo and who can blame him but because of that he def isnt the same player…. As a prime example look at the chance he missed goalie flying out at him centre half flying across him he’s prob thinking quick flick and ride the tackle where as 2 yrs ago all he would of been thinking is this is going in the net….! Lets hope Aaron doesnt suffer mind games as an “attack” like that can seriously make you lose your bottle in getting stuck in to tackles…!

  22. Erick says:

    Rico his assists have been superb but when he gets into the box something goes wrong, Manure won the CC as you pointed out we need a trophy who cares which one Come on Gunners

  23. Eazzy says:

    it seems there is more sympathy for the offender than the victim

  24. have to fly guys catch you up later will be mobile for rest of the day whens the wap site coming rico?

  25. Erick says:

    RSD liked your article 🙂

  26. rico says:

    Not yesterday RSD, it was important for us all to think of Ramsey.

  27. rico says:

    wath – i honestly don’t know how anyone gets over a tackle like that, i must be a footballers worst nightmare – i guess a good therapist helps (and that is me being serious)

  28. rico says:

    WAP RSD, is that some kind of dance 😉

  29. Erick says:

    Cheers RSD go easy on your back 🙂 🙂

  30. W.A.T.H says:

    Don’t think a therapist can even put you in the situation that you know is going to come though Rico, nothing like being back on the pitch being scared to put your foot in knowing that’s even worse and yet the telling thing will be a crunching 50/50 and Aaron gets up walks away with the ball….! Can’t see it being right untill you have been kicked or come through really heavy challenge…! Only then will your mind kick in and tell you “see it’s all ok now”….!

  31. rico says:

    MorninEazzy, welcome to Avenell Road – there is very little sympathy for Shawcross on here, trust me!

  32. W.A.T.H says:

    Eazzy, there is more sympathy within the media that the savage actually cried himself off the pitch for his mum to take him home, what a crock of bollox, maybe he should of gone back and seen exactly what he’d done to Aaron’s leg…! he’s a nice lad and all that crap is typical media rubbish and just imagine the crap if an Arsenal player had of done that…. We all know the answer to that and also know because its yet another Arsenal player injured it will soon be forgotten.

  33. rico says:

    wath, what Ramsey does have on his side is age, fitness and strength, reality is though we haven’t a scooby doo when he will come back, or how he will be when he does. I just hope and pray he does both.

    You are spot on about coming through a heavy challenge, going on from that, I am sure that is why the celtic incident took place with Dudu..

  34. rico says:

    Erick, did RSD crock his back on the roof the other day??

  35. Erick says:

    Been reading around and the Surgeon that took care of Dudu say 6-9 months on the sideline for Ramsey so around Xmas he might be back let hope for the best

  36. rico says:

    Mixed reports on that Erick, one says six months, another says six – nine months, how they know either for sure I dont know..

  37. W.A.T.H says:

    Erick, thing is with Ed’s injury it was more serious and complicated cos it was the ankle dislocasion as well amd also ligament damage… so maybe Aaron will hopefully be closer to 6 months out. Lets hope so.

  38. Erick says:

    Everyday Rico his exact words

  39. rico says:

    Why is he not taking it easy, he’s getting on a bit isn’t he 😉 😉

  40. rico says:

    Thats what I am thinking too, ready and eager for the start of the season, positive thoughts, positive …

  41. W.A.T.H says:

    How’s the new laptop Rico…..?

  42. rico says:

    Its good thanks wath, its all singing and dancing 😉 wasted on me though, i don’t really know what i am doing with them..

  43. Erick says:

    Yap Rico a bit of exageration but he will be okay WATH am thinking 6 months will be fair for Ramsey & Arsenal

  44. W.A.T.H says:

    I think 6 months would be fair on stoke and the savage to also be out eh Erick…………….!!! What a joke he breaks a players leg and only misses 3 games…. yes I know another subject done to death but its still also rubbish that u kick someone like that and can play again in a few weeks time.

  45. W.A.T.H says:

    Rico, word of warning… Don’t sign and dance ON your laptop you’ll break it….! 🙂

  46. rico says:

    Ah, that’s where I went wrong with the last one 😉

    Thats what makes a farce of Shawcross’s penalty, three matches, just three matches….

  47. Erick says:

    FA should look into that WATH all the talk about a physical game before the match yet Ref just lets it go thats the result and it will one day kill the premier league

  48. rico says:

    The only way to stop it Erick is stronger punishment, the FA should review this type of tackle and impose a more lenghty ban – how can a straight red card for a ‘last man tug’ back get the same penalty as a tackle like Shawcross made is daft..

    Yes, all this ‘get in the faces of Arsenal and they don’t like it stuff’ has to stop – sadly though all the time the likes of Redcrapp and co are commentating it will stay the same!!

  49. rico says:

    Off for a bit, back in a short while

  50. W.A.T.H says:

    No blowing the laptop Rico 🙂

  51. Erick says:

    Rico what people do not get is that football is about skill and it has never been about physicality

  52. W.A.T.H says:

    The mad thing Erick was the yellow card for Song……. that has 2b the softest yelolow I have seen in ages and yet they were both holding each others arms yet walton the W’anchor” deems it a yellow card to Song…! pathetic….!

  53. Erick says:

    True WATH it just so annoying but a blessing in disguise

  54. W.A.T.H says:

    Suppose he could do with a break but when u see how the ref’s are so pedantic towards us and yet so happy to book us for just about anything also leaves a sour taste in ur mouth…!

  55. Erick says:

    True WATH the Chelsea vs Manciteh game gareth barry was given a penalty in the same circumstance that Ramsey was denied in the stoke game double standards i say

  56. W.A.T.H says:

    Also only difference was Barry went down looking for a penalty as well where as Aaron was “upped” from behind….! Walton the W’anchor’ dont ever give us anything, was amazed he gave us the penalty for the hand ball to be honest.

  57. avenell says:

    Morning Roadsters..

    I hope the chefs at Shenley are gobbing in the food and rubbing certain parts of their anatomy around the rim of the England players tea cups this morning. 😉

  58. W.A.T.H says:

    I would hope that arsenic comes into play Ave…..

  59. W.A.T.H says:

    Also maybe some very strong laxative powder in certain cups of tea 🙂

  60. avenell says:

    Ha ha, we did that where I worked once, all the f**kers that were doing overtime were nicking our gold blend..

  61. Erick says:

    🙂 Ave so Wenger states the rest of the season is 4 Aaron Ramsey Come on Arsenal 4 Aaron

  62. avenell says:

    Hi Erick.. Aaron won’t be back this side of Christmas, well not properly.
    You can guarantee a few strains and setbacks on the way.

    Happy Birthday to Carlos Vela btw.. 21 years old (not so young anymore)
    The great Liam Brady left us when he was only 24.. Anelka left at 20. Charlie George did the double at 21..

  63. W.A.T.H says:

    Gee ur such an old fart Ave……….. 🙂

  64. Erick says:

    I bet next season he would have a been regular Ave damn injuries will ruin Arsenal we got to sign come end of the season

  65. avenell says:

    Iv’e just got a good Arsenal history book.. 😉

  66. W.A.T.H says:

    Can u read it thru them bi-focals….?? 🙂

    Ave I’m gonna be positive and say he’ll be back September time….! This kid is the dogs…. loads of fight and plenty guts as well, I have a feeling he’ll be back pretty quick…!

  67. Erick says:

    WATH i also believe it wont be 9 months Ramsey is a fighter he will definetly bounce back

  68. avenell says:


    I have to confess I am still unsure of Ramsey performance wise, especially for Arsenal.
    He was doing okay, but we have to be carefull we don’t build him up to have been the greatest player since Pele and put too much pressure on him when he comes back.
    A lot of people were doing that to Dudu, he was just starting to settle into the PL, then after his injury we expected superman.

  69. avenell says:

    kin ell .. I sound like a right doomer..

  70. avenell says:

    If anyone has any money invested in the Prudential.. get it out they have just bought AIG.. we don’t want to be giving money to companies that sponsor ManU..

  71. W.A.T.H says:

    He aint no pele Ave and yes you do sound like a very negative old git BUT for me Ramsey has just started to try dictate the game the way he wants….. he putting himself about getting into the penalty areas gets back and defends…. He has a good engine and its slowly starting to show that he can have a positive influence on a game and then……….. that happens………!!

  72. avenell says:

    That was one of his best games on Saturday, I would have put him down as our best player at the time of the incident..
    It is a shame, but like you say he’s young enough to bounce back.

    Arsenal’s experience bringing Dudu and Rosicky back will help too.

  73. Erick says:

    Ave i see your point one thing he does not need right now is pressure we should remain calm, his game was starting to pick up and the graph was on an upward slope then the worst happens

  74. W.A.T.H says:

    He seems a very level headed fella Ave, am sure he will just wanna get fit and then get back on the pitch…. Am sure with the older heads around him they will all help him out that he mustn’t expect to much to soon on the rd to recovery..!.

  75. islington haye maker. says:

    F*** stan collymore and f*** the media.

    Please god,say Aaron Comes back a even better player.

  76. W.A.T.H says:

    Is HM I’m with you on that one fella, the media are pure scum…! As 4 collymore the wife beater…! shows the class of that piece of shit 2….!

  77. avenell says:

    What was it.. Arsenal fans should be embarrassed by Wengers comments?

  78. W.A.T.H says:

    The ony thing thats a total embarrassment is the fact collymore actually is delusional enough to think he can write such drivel and thinks anyone cares or listens to him, he’s a muppet end off.

  79. rico says:

    What have i missed then other than Collymore is a knob!!

  80. K-TR7 says:

    Whats new today

  81. rico says:

    Hi KTR7, good to see you, I thought you had left us for somewhere else 😉

  82. K-TR7 says:

    Why would i leave rico?this is a very good blog where fans are objective of their team.Project youth may have it flaws but on saturday it showed how it has kept our team together and thats the reason for the good team spirit.on saturday,i thought nasri continued impressing by being direct,stoke couldn’t deal with his clever turns,dribbles and his ability to retain the ball.he is pretty strong too.more of the same samir!

  83. rico says:

    Just teasing you KTR7 😉 Its good to hear you like it here, you are a valued blogger 🙂

  84. K-TR7 says:

    Thanks rico.

  85. K-TR7 says:

    This blog may not have the feedback of legrove but its quality and always makes a good read on our beloved club.most blogs with many responses are usually unreasonable; says ramsey broke his leg because he isn’t tough enough,WTF!do they mean the same wouldn’t happen to shrek or stevie me?

  86. rico says:

    KTR7, I mean it…

    Can’t believe anyone would think that any player would not have suffered the same injury, what a load of bollox … unbelievable isn’t it..

  87. K-TR7 says:

    According to the media you would think ramsey broke shawcross’ leg,the sympathy he is receiving because of his tears is appalling.even Graham poll thinks it was no accident and you know how good his articles are…

  88. rico says:

    Absolutey KTR7, thats why i put it in the post – Poll is probably one of the better refs we have had in England, three yellow cards though discredited him a bit 😉

  89. Erick says:

    Am off to bed friends can’t wait for morrow piece Cheers
