Running Scared – So they bloomin should be…..

Tomorrow we welcome Burnley to The Emirates, the Mancs face Wolves away and the Chavs are at home to Stoke City in the FA Cup.. We know Stoke can give any team a hard time in more ways than one and as much as it pains me to say this, but I will be cheering them on against Chelsea on Sunday –

OOps, I have just been advised this is a cup match for the chavs, all the better I say, we can put more pressure on them with a win!!

I can’t stand John ‘Thomas’ Terry and his bunch, I have little time for Stoke – but out of the two I would rather the Chavs win nothing, so a Stoke win would be good!

As for Wolves, old Mickey boy will play his strongest side against the Mancs, he can’t afford another hefty fine like he had when he fielded a very under strength side the last time they met. When that game was played I could understand why he did it. He didn’t think they would win and Wolves had a relegation battle a few days after that game but like ave said here, if it gets close at the end, will you feel the same?

It is close and no I don’t ave, I wish Wolves had played a full strength side and nicked a point!! This time around though, Wolves are at home and live on television; I hope they play up for the camera and stuff Sir Red Nose’s side.

Drop points Mancs and Chavs and trust me it will be at your peril, you both have a crap run in and we have a much favourable one – apart from Tottingham away, all are games are winnable.

That’s why Old Red Nose and Ancelotti are worried, that’s why they are again talking to the media, saying that no-one should write Arsenal off!!

It’s all a game, mind games and trivia yet again by the managers who truly believe we are in the best shout for the title since the ‘Birmingham Affair’. They are scared, rightly so too and we need to make sure we stay focused and not choke at this stage. We are so so close, let’s just concentrate on us, let’s just win all our games, sit back and watch the others drop points and then we can sneak in when it counts.

The next few days are massive for us, massive! Win two games in four days and we are still grinning from ear to ear, lose either and the challenge for ‘that’ trophy is over. It’s do or die time for the team as far as this season goes.

I honestly can’t see us dropping one point on Saturday let alone three – in fact I would stick my neck out so far to say this is going to be a high scoring game. I don’t however, see Burnley contributing to that high score one bit, other than being on the end of it!!

Not only does the team/squad need to believe it, so do the fans. Against Burnley, those who are lucky enough to be there need to sing loud, support every player vocally. Get behind the team we all love and help them to achieve what we all want them to!

This time Tuesday night, we could be two points off the top of the league and in the quarter-finals of the Champions League – How great would that be?

Come on Cesc, you can and will be the next Arsenal captain to lift this trophy.

Have a good day all….

    chelsea match against stoke is a fa cup match ! schoolboy error! have we heard that in the last couple of weeks

  2. rico says:

    Morning All

  3. DAVEY says:

    Chelsea play stoke in the cup so no dropping of points.

  4. Mustang says:

    Morning Rico,

    good piece and it’s good to start feeling positive again, starting with a win on Saturday!

    Come on you gunners!!!

  5. Tim says:

    I thought the stoke-chavski game was a fa cup tie?

  6. davegooner says:

    Stoke play Chelsea in the FA Cup not the league!! Come on, even I know that!

  7. rico says:

    Thanks to those have corrected me on the fixture, I have ammended the post – at least it shows you actually read it 🙂

  8. rico says:

    Morning Mustang..

    I got the fixtures wrong, school girl error 😉

    But we win and the Chavs will feel the pressure, and thaks re the post, fed up with the doom and gloom 😉

  9. Mustang says:

    I am sure you guys are enjoying pointing out the error, but do you get the general gist of the article or are you only interested in pointing out mistake if others that I am sure you never make?

  10. rico says:

    Don’t worry Mustang, they came to only to mention the error, they will be long gone now.. Thanks though 🙂

  11. rico says:

    We win at the weekend, Mancs drop a point or two and then its ours to lose imho..

  12. Wow rico the belief is infectious
    and no smiley 😉 🙂 🙂

  13. Mustang says:


    still a good piece, come folks let’s get behind the team and be positive. Let’s get rid of some of the negative energy from the season so far and support the team. The aggitation for the misplaced pass, the odd slip on the pitch, the shot off target, the flapping of our keeper, in spite of all our frustrations let’s learn one thing from Pompey, full support for the team come what may! This is no time to have divisions amongst the supporters.

    United we stand, divided we fall!!! Gunners unite!!!!

  14. rico says:

    Morning rsd – its how I feel, this is ours for the taking..

    Great comment Mustang..

    We are where we are with all the errors, maybe the errors are now done and dusted and we a due a run without them now …

  15. let hope we start to make our own luck
    we’ve been due some decent decision
    and they’re starting to turn up
    two game two pens

  16. rico says:

    Good point there rsd, not often we get penalty decisions go in our favour.

  17. i was saying we hope it even out before the sunderland game and that would mean a pen every game till the end of the season
    let hope that happens

  18. you gona watching the AW press conference

  19. clockendjim says:

    I don’t want Stoke to win at Chelsea. I want to see a draw so the Chavs have to play an extra game in a replay.

  20. rico says:

    I hope to later, busy day though sadly 😦

  21. rico says:

    Morning jim, good point, i just hate the chavs and want them lose every game they play, sometimes it takes over any logic 😉

  22. would be nice a replay hey

  23. thats no good am without sound today so will have to read the wapping slant on what wenger says

  24. rico says:

    It should be on ATV, so i’ll see what I can do in a while

  25. did you see 300 so called arsenal supporters sent shawcross emails of sympathy

  26. rico says:

    you jest rsd? that is crazy isn’t it..

    did you send a message to Ramsey via

  27. Mustang says:

    Noticed the “get well soon” t-shirts the Wales players were wearing at the weekend. Nice touch…..

  28. rico says:

    I liked that too Mustang, nice for Ramsey to see


    not fans mind you just supporters

    yeah sent a RSD one and an unmasked one

  30. think the red action flag is nice have you sent in for money to that as well

  31. rico says:

    didn’t see that one

  32. rico says:

    thanks for the link rsd

  33. Sid says:

    This for shows the support rambo is getting from a welsh spudnik.. not to harp on an issue.. but its pretty amusing.

  34. avenell says:

    Morning all.

    Welcome aboard Sid..

    Rico, I see you sussed out how to get newbies on lol..
    I wouldn’t have a clue either who is still in the FA cup.

  35. rico says:

    Hi Sid, thats a good one 🙂

  36. i’d didn’t even know it was the cup this weekend was wondering why there was so little fixture

  37. avenell says:

    I only knew this morning as they were talking about the shit wembley pitch on the radio..

    and how it has ended Owens season.. oh dear!

  38. rico says:

    Morning ave – I honestly didn’t realise, just thought it was the PL, still, it let people have their usual early morning moan 😉

  39. i missed that is owen out
    that is good news
    the tilt is really all going our way

  40. avenell says:

    Fergie has only just said it in a press conference.

    Hi rico.

  41. avenell says:

    Not that I could understand him.. 😉

  42. rico says:

    Rotten for Owen though, I thought he would be in for a farewell WC with Beckham 😉

  43. rico says:

    Coz old red nose says something they will listen, if it was AW, people would say he’s just moaning again…

  44. what is this i know we’ve had a golden genertaion that couldn’t even make it to the euros but lets face it there past it.

    By the way whats is the that table they fight on in flash gordon it bugging me now
    you know when flash and that green prince (timothy dalton). fight in brain blessed palace?

    sorry for the ramdomness


  45. 0-10 to the girls v spurs go on

  46. avenell says:

    Beckham doesn’t deserve to go to the world cup either .. he sold his soul to the USA for money.
    It’s the FA that keep him in as a shirt seller and to try to get the WC in 2018.
    If I was Beckham I would be embarrased by it all.

  47. rico says:

    Thats cracking rsd, just fab – if only I had seen that before 😉

    I want him to go ave 😉

  48. avenell says:

    Do you believe in his hype ..

    Big blotch of ink on the back of his neck, wears stupid clothes to get in the papers..
    When was the last time he did anything on a football field?

    But he scored from a free kick against Greece.. after he missed 30.. and it was a dive that got him that..

  49. but the can use a dead ball
    nb when cappello brought him on last year
    0-0 i tinks and he gets the ball drops it in on a six pence and goal
    even lemmon and theo cant do that
    maybe they should stop running

  50. avenell says:

    Take Jonny Wilkinson then.. 😉

    Surely you cannot have a passenger of a player who can score or assist a goal from a free kick every 10 matches.

  51. avenell says:

    I wouldn’t take take Theo either.. I would and I hate to say it take Lennon.

  52. avenell says:

    It’s like RvP taking all the free kicks.. since he has been injured we have scored loads.. When was the last RvP goal from one?

  53. /maybe he should change sport in usa
    didn’t wilko get offered a contract for a kicker
    in that “american soccerball”

    would do wonders for theo confidence tho

  54. rico says:

    I don’t like all that side to him, but thats his choice – he has been good for England and I personally hope he is on the plane..

    At least he hasn’t been shagging all his team mates wives 😉

  55. rico says:

    Thats it rsd, also, if Theo goes, Beckham is the only one who will pass to him 😉

  56. so its only rooney and berbatov that utd have till the end of the season that is good news

  57. rico says:

    ave – you either love him or hate him, Becks I mean. He is a player who can change a game..

    But we can say the same about Cesc and his dreadful corners..

  58. rico says:

    I don’t want Theo to go either.. He needs a summer in the gym and resting his growing bones..

  59. rico says:

    Berbytoff isn’t 100% fit either rsd, i think he needs an operation..

  60. we do miss rvp from dead balls
    dudu can take a good one

  61. oh yeah i nb reading about that
    so it just rooney and that itie kid

  62. with cech out a ahole
    things are getting very rosey

  63. avenell says:

    We need to sell Theo asap, more and more people are sussing him out and he won’t be worth jack in a years time..

    All this injury crap.. and age .. excuses, excuses.

  64. yeah i know trigg

    we fucking love theo ay rico

    guess we can only rate him once he get shifted to centre. after all henry was shite on the wing and then……….

  65. avenell says:

    Henry could control a ball, always has been able too, and he made intelligent runs.

    Theo. without going all over it again.. just can’t.

    Nothing stops Theo from moving into the centre sometimes yet he still doesn’t show any inkling that he capable of being an Arsenal striker in tight places.
    He would be okay at Bolton or Blackburn where they play counter attacking football.

  66. he’ll work it out in the end
    but might take a few more years
    wrighty started late he was in his twentys before he was any good

  67. rico says:

    I don’t want Theo out – I want him to get better, how old was Henry when he came to us ave? How good was he at 20 years old??

    He was pretty average until he joined us and AW moved him into the middle, Theo needs a chance to play in his right position, a bit like Eboue, at RB he is very good, right midfield he can be poor..

  68. rico says:

    spot on rsd, he nearly quit and became an Engineer i think…

  69. rico says:

    i have to pop out, be back soon – in the meantime rsd, you fight young Theo’s corner 😉

  70. right i have to spin the dog
    and get some supplies in for the girls
    catch you up in a bit

    i’ll expect a transcript of AW Press conference 😉

  71. rico says:

    Good job you reminded me about that..

  72. avenell says:

    Thierry won the world cup with France at 20..

  73. theo went to the world cup at 18 :-p

  74. avenell says:

    and was France’s top scorer . in that world cup.

  75. avenell says:

    So did another million spectators.

  76. so theo 21 a week on tues and is prob going to world cup bet you fiver he scores more than 3

  77. avenell says:

    If he goes your on..

    But Lennon and Cole will take his place.

  78. avenell says:

    I wish he could score three for the Arsenal..

  79. he’s got 1 this year so he’s half way there

  80. avenell says:

    £3 million pounds wages per goal.. not a bad return..

  81. from six starts thats not bad

  82. avenell says:

    That was his fault for going against Wengers wishes to the U21’s and the full England team in the summer..

  83. was against aw wishes for him to be called up by fa once they did he couldn’t not go.
    have you got atvo with sound

    all i can make out is
    “I believe”

  88. rico says:

    Jones must be slow 😉

  89. what date did he give for gallas

  90. rico says:

  98. rico says:

    that youtube clip is very very funny, i love it…

  99. rico says:

    Juventus will test Arsene Wenger’s desire to sign Felipe Melo by insisting on an Arsenal star in exchange.
    The Gunners boss admits he is still interested in Melo, who he failed to land when the Brazil midfielder left Fiorentina for Juve in a players plus cash deal worth £21million.
    The Turin giants would be open to a deal, but are eyeing at least one of Robin van Persie, Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna as part of any transfer.

  100. 4pigs says:

    0 – 10 …. brilliant!

    Sorry .. Hello all

  101. rico says:

    Yo, 4pigs, havent seen you here for a while, thought you had deserted us 😦

  102. 4pigs says:

    No chance, just busy at work…. soooooooo sad

  103. 4pigs says:

    Rico.. re your last about Melo, I just hope it’s not RVP, we have cover for the other two. I wouldn’t let any of them go personally – in any case it’s probably a load of old tosh!!

  104. rico says:

    Is that the Welsh Tosh 😉

    You are right, its probably bollox! Silly summer season looms and this is just the start of who will we buy and who will we sell.

  105. rico says:

    Work… I hate that word..

  106. rico says:

    DAILY STAR: Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil has cleared the path for Arsenal to launch a £15m summer swoop.

    This is interesting, its in our own ‘rag’ – the daily star 😉

  107. rico says:

    I’m off to Wikki the player

  108. rico says:

    Mesut Ozil – he isnt bad, attacking midfielder/winger, 10 goals in 26 games this season for Werder Brenan…

    Are we not a bit over loaded in the midfield?? Another LOB JOB 😉

  109. rico says:

    Am I talking to myself again 😦

  110. 4pigs says:

    Work “i hate that word” … LMAO……
    Me to, I do read but i just dont have time to get as involved as i would like.

  111. 4pigs says:

  124. rico says:

    oops, no i havent, off for a quick check

  125. rico says:

    “I remember what happened clearly and after the tackle went in I saw that my leg was broken and hanging at an angle. I have seen images of the aftermath of the collision again but I don’t want to dwell too much on the challenge as I can’t change what has happened.

    “It is difficult for me to take everything in at the moment. I thought I had been progressing well this season, so of course this is a real setback. It is very hard to take but I am young and have time on my side. I had an operation last weekend and while it will take time for my leg to heal, I am determined and focussed on overcoming this injury and hope to be back fitter and stronger than before.

    “I have been overwhelmed by the terrific support I have received from so many people including fans from many different football clubs. In particular, I would like to thank the medical team here at Arsenal for their efforts as well as the staff at both hospitals. Glenn Whelan was especially kind and I really appreciated his immediate assistance on the pitch as well as the medical support from Stoke City. I also want to say thanks to Arsenal for helping my family this week.

    “Last but certainly not least I have been blown away by the fantastic messages of support from the Arsenal fans. I am proud to be an Arsenal player and your support has been incredibly touching. Finally, I want to wish my teammates all the best for the remainder of the season. I know that we are capable of winning a trophy and I will be backing them all the way.”

  126. rico says:

    That is a really touching statement…

    Get well soon Rambo 🙂

  127. oh rambo rambo
