Up t’ north we go again then…

Firstly, welcome back Mark Halsey, after a tough seven months he has his whistle in his pocket and he’s back where he should be.

Another must win game tonight and it’s another tricky one too. Hull City are a funny old side really, led by a man who looks as if he been ‘Tangoed’ and should be seen only in the local discotheque with his ear/mouthpiece!!

Hull have a full squad to choose from should Stephen Hunt pass a late fitness test this morning, but even so, we a side on a winning run again, confidence is high and Nikki B has finally realised what his football boots are on the end of his feet for!

We have doubts over Tomas Rosicky, Bacary Sagna and Sol Campbell, fingers crossed they both make it, Campbell is far better than Silvestre and Rosicky is not far off being as good as he was before injury. I just hope all three pass the fitness and play today, the only one I am not so concerned about is Sagna, Eboue is fine right now.

Theo Walcott started to show what he was made of last Saturday and even though he was a substitute on Tuesday night against Porto, when he came on he looked like a different player. Suddenly he seems to have a bit of fight in him and a bit of confidence.
With Walcott tearing down the wings, crossing to the head of Nikki ‘I can score now’ Bendtner we should be confident of coming away with all three points.

So this is my team:-


Eboue Sol TV Clichy

Diaby Nasri Rosicky (no order)

Theo Nikki Arshavin

That team is enough to beat Hull, a side that sits second from the bottom of the Premiership Table, a team who has been in the naughty corner this week because of two players fighting and scaring ladies from the Women’s Institute! Nick Barmby and Jimmy Bullard were the guilty players, they should both be dropped! Good though to see that Brown had to make an apology to the ladies, I bet he hated that!

I hope we tear Hull to shreds, thrash them off of their own ground and add another blow with the hammer to the nail that will one day be in Phil Browns footballing coffin. I can’t stand the man. The accusation he so wrongly made against Cesc, accused Arsene Wenger of not shaking his hand after the same game in order to ‘justify’ his complaint about Cesc, the man is not nice.

And many say Arsene Wenger is a bad loser, bloody heck, at least he doesn’t behave like you Mr Brown! The man’s a Knob!!

Its an orange one just for him!!

Brown is not a ‘nice manager’ he gives all the chit chat then hides behind the reality. That reality is he and his team are in the wrong league and you don’t need me to suggest where they should be but it wouldn’t even be playing against Reading, nah, they deserve to be much further down in the leagues!

So come you boys, not only win this for Aaron and to keep the Premiership Title dream alive, win it for our little Captain, throw that false accusation right back down his throat by whooping Hull by many a goal…

Keep the dream alive……

  25. rico says:

  64. rico says:

    Second half big screen though…

  65. avenell says:

    Fox have put Eboue down as RB and Sagna as a winger.. lol.. you would think they would put a bit of research in..

  66. wenger says the pitch is a state

  67. rico says:

    rsd, what the party, it is crazy but they are quiet for two days after…

  68. they have warren barton lol

  69. rico says:

    get me, I have got my own way and I have the big screen 😉

  70. rico says:

    Royle says that Arshavin has to be one of the best bargains to has come into the EPL over the last few years

  71. avenell says:

    That’s the geezer RSD.. I was trying to think of his name.. he normally says good things about Arsenal.

  72. avenell says:

    We need to get this game tied up by 60 mins.. cos I’m trying to buy some stuff off ebay..

  73. yeah right
    he hasn’t got a clue

  74. lol
    i’m sure that will be in AW pre game talk

  75. rico says:

    I think it was meant in a good way rsd, he really likes AA

  76. rico says:

    sorry, i was referring to Joe Royle, not Barton

  77. i meant about ave ebay bids

  78. rico says:

    Bullard is playing well, git!

  79. rico says:

    Finally someone has identied our injuries, Royle says that we have really suffered..

  80. avenell says:

    That Hesselink bloke they nearly had to put letters on his shorts to fit his name on..

  81. rico says:

    😆 ave…

  82. rico says:

    we are rubbish at the moment 😦

  83. we always asleep for the first 15 mins

  84. avenell says:

    The pitch does look bobbly..

  85. rico says:



  86. rico says:

    Great finish AA 😛

  87. rico says:

    100 goals this season, incredible..

  88. yellow bootie’s

  89. rico says:

    another stray pass by old Denny Boy

  90. rico says:

    Royle says we are great to watch and must be every football fans second team…

    Mmmmmmmm, tell that to a Spud fan Big Joe 😉

  91. rico says:

    smart arse rsd 😉

  92. my new toy works well rico

  93. rico says:

    WTF was no-one on the end of that wicked cross from Sagna….

  94. rico says:

    WTF = Why the flip by the way 😉

    I may pluck up courage to take a peep one day rsd…

  95. rico says:

    all i can hear is our away fans, yet at home they are quite quiet, strange…

  96. haven’t quite worked it out yet

  97. rico says:

    penalty… 😦

  98. rico says:

    hull were offside and now a penalty!!

  99. avenell says:

    That was offside..

  100. avenell says:

    obviously the stream is sloooow..

  101. rico says:

    that should have been a penalty for Nikki too

    good penalty by Bullard – agree rsd, but janhooffhestlelink was offside!!

  102. rico says:

    refs get a slating, what about the lino’s?? they should keep up with play!

  103. even got fing line across the pitch

  104. rico says:

    dreadful decision, yet again!!

  105. avenell says:

    Kevin Keegan the wanker… How can a sending off be the correct decision when the game should have been stopped.. That hit on the head with a baseball bat has certainly f***ed him..

  106. rico says:

    hand flippin ball, two pens denied, and who said we had turned a corner in the luck for penalty decisions…..

    Where is Erick 😉

  107. no idea studying i guess

  108. rico says:

    Royle says – it was offside but after that wasn’t given it was a clumbsy tackle, he thinks the sending off rule is stupid as a penalty is enough of a penalty …

    That was a red card tackle, yet again, two footed challenge given only a yellow, just crazy and no wonder AW gets bitter!!

  109. avenell says:

    What did Bendtner do apart from got hit????

  110. avenell says:

    I have a ESPN stream now rico..

  111. if dont give a red both have to get a yellow i guess

  112. need aw to wipe them up at half time

  113. avenell says:

    Yipee.. justice at last..

  114. avenell says:

    Wankers are cheering him off.. unreal..

  115. avenell says:

    1 min injury time.. two goals and a sending off and injuries.. the referee’s never cease to amaze..

  116. would be surprised it they get another one

  117. would= wouldn’t

  118. avenell says:

    KK “the blindsman”.. lol..

  119. rico says:

    Beggars flippin belief in my eyes, now will someone listen to Wenger – that deserved a straight red!!

    I hate Brown and I hate bloody Hull

  120. rico says:

    is the espn stream better ave, i hope so

  121. avenell says:

    Not bad rico.. apart from the beer glasss in the corner.. reminds me I should have gone down the pub..

  122. rico says:

    we could struggle now, 10 men defending for a point!

    denilson is poor…

    KK said Boatang should have got a straight red, and lord knows why Nikki got a yellow, Boatang should have been red carded for both, f-in crazy!!

    Royle says we are lucky Sagna is able to play on…

  123. rico says:

    go get one out the fridge ave 😉

  124. rico says:

    janvinigarohhesslelink is going to get a goal soon, we need to bloody shape up and get into second gear!!

    Theo please and soon….

  125. rico says:

    brown has shed his mic… tosser

  126. avenell says:

    Do we really need Denilson on now.. or did we ever?

  127. rico says:

    that was a good tackle by Sol… WTF!!

  128. rico says:

    He is dreadful ave, everything he does puts us in trouble…

  129. rico says:

    actually, seeing it again 😦

  130. avenell says:

    Sol slipped watch his left leg!!

  131. rico says:

    Time to take Sol off???

  132. rico says:

    KK says Sols tackle was a great tackle, Le Boff says the same, great tackle and no complaints from either…

  133. rico says:

    he looks tired though rsd

  134. avenell says:

    I thought this mob was hard.. lol..

  135. rico says:

    we are crap!!

  136. pitch aint helping

  137. rico says:

    twenty minutes, now come on boys, i dont care how you get them but get three points!!!

  138. rico says:

    the pitch is crap too rsd…

  139. rico says:

    theo is going to score…. not sure in which game though 😉

  140. rico says:

    this is the worst we have played in a while now, it saddens me…

  141. rico says:

    dudu for nasri???????

  142. rico says:

    great cross theo, no-one in there….

  143. rico says:

    is this our lucky ball coming on 😉

  144. rico says:
