Parlour’s back and he’s on the Becks……

I must start with the under 18’s who had a good day on Saturday. What with the Hull fiasco and the sacking of Phil Brown, I lost sight of another great result for the team that will one day be our future. They beat a Milton Keynes reserves side 4-0 at home.

There’s not much on the Arsenal website about the game, all it says is the kids went 11-points clear at the top of Premier Academy League Group A with a 4-0 win

Benik Afobe bagged a quick couple of goals in the first half and Chuks Aneke made it 3-0 just before the hour, substitute Josh Rees completed the scoring just before the final whistle.

Well done Bouldy..

Going on from yesterday’s post, our very own Romford Pele has been speaking about David Beckham and our own Theo Walcott.

Parlour says that Walcott can become a major player for Arsenal and shouldn’t be judged on his injury-hit season.

The former Arsenal favourite reckons there are a few things similar between Theo and the David Beckham during the peak of his career.

Ray Parlour has just been on ‘An Audience with’ and he defended Theo’s form this season and reckons the player will be a huge part in Arsenal’s future.

“Players like Theo Walcott have massive potential,” he said “I would not say he has had a bad season it is just that he has not had a run in the team.

“Against Burnley, he was brilliant, absolutely fantastic. But if you are going to be a big player you need to do that week in week out at a consistent level.

“Theo will do that once he gets his injuries sorted out. Once he does that he can be a massive player for Arsenal.

“The ball he put over at the start of the second half at Hull was like Beckham in his prime. But Theo has got pace as well. He has just got to get injury free now and get a run in the team.”

So that’s what he told afc.com, high praise from an Arsenal hero…

Being serious for one minute, would Ray Parlour make such a statement if he didn’t actually believe what he was saying, would he compare him to such a ‘big’ player as David Beckham if he didn’t believe he was right? I don’t think he would, all he would be doing is putting more pressure on the now twenty one year old – and we know he loves Arsenal too much to do that!

So love Beckham or hate him, he just won’t go away, and that’s a good time to compare him to Theo Walcott, love him or hate him , he too is here to stay – and according to Theo, he is like a new signing… YAWN 😉

PS – Anyone know how the Chavs got on last night? Ha ha ha ha ha

Have a good day all, catch you in the comments…

  4. stonroy says:

    Great post. Bouldy deserves some praise. So do you, a great read.

  5. rico says:

    Morning stonroy, thank you..

    I would love to see Bouldy alongside AW, its not that I don’t like Rice, but I think Bouldy has the making of a great manager one day

  6. he said beckham in his prime
    did beckham ever reach the byline?

  7. rico says:

    I think its shows just how high Parlour rates Theo, will be interesting to see over the next couple of months, he plays well and even JJ and ave might start to have faith in Theo 😉

  8. that will be a cold day in hell.

    maybe when ave pays up in july he might start believing

  9. oh finished that research on chesney this morning
    ave has one in the bag for you.

  10. rico says:

  11. W.A.T.H says:

    Morning Rico xx Did u sleep well..? mornin RSD….

  12. rico says:

    Morning wath, I did thanks, hope you did too or were you laughing too much over the big loss in London..?

  13. W.A.T.H says:

    I must admit I was thinking well least Rico gonna wake up and be very happy when she see’s that result….! AND u did call it 2…….!

  14. check moderation rico

  15. was terrible to watch an’all
    wish brentford was on the telly

  16. rico says:

    Morning RSb, sorry for the delay, welcome to AR

    Very happy and glad i was right wath 😉 it was more wishful thinking and hope though 😉 😉

  17. rico says:

    Got to pop out for an hour, wont be too long, dont go away…

  18. i’ll hold the fort

  19. K-TR7 says:

    This is a year for football sides and not money sides as madrid and chavs will tell you.mourinho’s gameplan was perfect:three forwards to occupy the fbs,this forced chavs to be narrow where they met motta and cambiasso two tough tackling dms.he also put two big cbs to ruffle drogba’s feathers and he duly self-destructed.some of the defending by inter was sensational not allowing chelsea shots on goal and were it not for poor finishing by milito,pandev and eto’o they would have been drubbed.sneijder was sublime!chavs were being bullied all over the park which was a refreshing site to see.

  20. W.A.T.H says:

    RSbilly nomates…. welcome maybe you can hook up with a fella called RSD………….! 🙂

    sorry went missing pc had a hissy fit… so I booted it and now all fine….!

  21. tenderising them always helps 😉

    who’s this RSBilly nomates?

    he sounds like a diamond gezzer 🙂

  22. rico says:

    Rrsb, rsd, sort yourself out 😉

    Have i missed much…

  23. W.A.T.H says:

    No Rico but I kno u missed me 🙂

    Sounds like two nomates to me………………….

  24. rico says:

    ha ha wath 😉

  25. rico says:

    Cesc could be back for the hammers game..

  26. K-TR7 says:

    Morning rico.chavs can complain about being denied a penalty but it was karma.carvalho is a master of shirt grabbing and blocking off opponents during corners.chelsea lacked a creative mf like cesc who could split the defence wide open.they are also short of dribblers.watching them hit long ball after long ball to drogba showed how limited they are in their play.mou outfoxed CA;when malouda was pushed to leftback,eto’o was moved to the left and thats where eto’o scored from.i’ve been to a couple of chav blogs,it is hilarious to see them whine like terry did after the game ended.

  27. rico says:

    morning KTR7, I heard they had a penalty or two turned down, you been on the chavs site’s, you naughty chap winding them up – love it 🙂

  28. moderation rcio

    right swedish school awaits be on the cell
    see you guys

  29. rico says:

    rsd, you can’t have three up in one day, your ip address gives you away…

  30. W.A.T.H says:

    ur such a spoil sport Rico………… 😛 poor RSB I mean RSD…..

  31. K-TR7 says:

    Rico-to beat inter,you have to play a fast paced game and you will slaughter them like ducks.i’ve watched them play teams like napoli,genoa and roma who play arsenalike stuff and inter struggled!they’ve only won one game in feb vs udinese since teams know high tempo and pace is the way to go against them.there is no team more physical team than inter in europe;chavs were beaten at their own game.CA tried to play italian style vs inter and it failed miserably!it is also hilarious to see madrid out while sneijder and robben who they thought were not good enough have guided their respective teams to cl quarters.cheers!

  32. rico says:

    RSMonty was his latest wath 😉 He’s naughty…

    I think we could very well beat inter if we draw them in fact i think we have the squd to beat any team on our day.

    funny when you think about robben and sneijder, just goes to show doesn’t it…

    would be good if barca went out tonight, but can’t see it

  33. rico says:

    Ian Dowie is the new Hull manager and Pompey have been docked 9 points…

  34. W.A.T.H says:

    So he’s a RealSoppyMonty………..! Explains everything that does.

    Inter are now good at what they do and Maureenyo got it spot on as in the first leg, Stop drogcnut and they will struggle…! They did…..! Also when we is wound up and doesnt get his own way he also throw’s his toys out the cot and get’s sent off… Hardly the first time is it…!.

  35. rico says:

    He is a great player, but a sulking child when things go against him, he is also a dirty cheat!!

    Not rsd, Drogba 😉

  36. W.A.T.H says:

    I was wondering if you know something abt RSD that we dont 😉

    Yep a cheat and a big tart when he don’t get his own way….!. Obviously a spoilt little mummies boy…!

    And how’s those puppies today babe must I come play with em…? 🙂

  37. rico says:

    i am not going there!!!!

  38. W.A.T.H says:

    It’s fine I didnt ask you 2……….. I volunteer 😉

  39. K-TR7 says:

    I was surprised by sevilla’s shock exit.they really bottle it in big games.if we play inter,our movement is the only way to unlock their defence.lucio,motta and samuel will be suspended for the game.chav fans admitted that their victory over us just pappered over the cracks what was a poor performance from them.they were wishing they had an AA/TR7/SN8/FAB4/RVP!creative geniuses playing for our beloved club.inter were embarassed by barca through keeping possession and playing quick footy.i expect stuttgart to be slaughtered tonight,its gonna get messi!

  40. rico says:

    KTR7, all the chavs really have is Drogba and Anelka, the rest are a bunch of ageing old has beens, i bet this summer see’s a few leave and a few big players come in – the best thing that could happen is the chavs win nothing and any great players who want to move to London, choose us.

    i hope a shock is on the cards again tonight, what is the score going into tonights match ??

  41. rico says:

    Essien isn’t bad though 😉

  42. rico says:

    Got to go out again, see you later

  43. rico says:

    Afternoon boys and girls

  44. K-TR7 says:

    Afternoon rico,messi has just said we are a threat to their crown and loves watching AA&fab.he says we play like south americans.bless you son,you are the best player on the planet.Terry broke a stewards leg after last nights game,whats up with him?cambiasso and samuel also went to inter from real on free transfers,how they would have done with them last week.

  45. rico says:

    Afternoon KTR7, spooky, I was just reading the Messi story, how the heck did Terry break the stewards leg??

  46. K-TR7 says:

    He was driving off in his range rover avoiding the journalists in the parking lot.xavi is not fit to play is a rumour floating around.i have a spooky feeling about tonights games…

  47. Erick says:

    What were Bayern thinking letting Lucio go what a player made Drogba n Anelka anonymous

  48. think it was the 2 hm and the centre’s erick evening

    happy st patricks day

    When Paddy came over from Ireland,
    In praise of the AFC,

  49. Erick says:

    Happy st patrick day RSD bt you have to agree Lucio is a big match player

  50. rico says:

    Sorry KTR7, the doorbell rang and it was a neighbour who can talk for England 😉 She is a Gooner though so I felt oblidged to listen…

    Thanks for the stuff about Terry, how on earth did he not realise he has hit someone, what a knob!!

  51. rico says:

    Evening Erick, all good with you??

  52. rico says:

    Barca are going out tonight too, the door is opening….

  53. rico says:

    rsd – ave has emailed me your document, I cant make head nor tail of it 😦

    Would it be possible to just write it as a Word document and email it so its ready to go??

  54. Erick says:

    Am good Rico though Chelsea will go hard on the premiership but if Barco loose to nite it will be much easier for us to win it

  55. rico says:

    Erick, it could go the other way, confidence low, defeat after defeat 😉

  56. Erick says:

    True Rico but this weekend may be massive for us am crossing me fingers but it won’t be easy we have to be ready to raise to the occassion and play like we are in a final

  57. rico says:

    All we need to do is win our home games and worry about the away ones 😉

    B’ham and Spuds are tricky, but it could be done and dusted by the time we play the latter 🙂

  58. K-TR7 says:

    Messi earlier in the season didn’t even consider us a threat,he even said liverfool will be their biggest cl challengers but he has now eaten his words!pundits alike will have to bow down to the team AW is building and we are on the cusp of something special.our players are hungry for success,song said he jumped like a mad man when nik scored vs hull leaving his son wondering,more of the same boys!barca will make a statement tonight after madrid’s elimination.bordeaux will progress too.

  59. Erick says:

    JJ reckons we can afford a draw n still clinch it but am not so sure but all i have seen this season am Keeping the faith

  60. if you play about with this
    http://bit.ly/cYnSgR
    we can draw two and still win it

  61. cant you compose in html on word press?

  62. email me and i can do it straight to rico in word

  63. rico says:

    Erick, I honestly believe that the chavs and mancs will drop 6 points at least yet, chavs have Villa twice i think – all we need to do is concentrate and win all of ours 😉

  64. rico says:

    rsd, i don’t give out my email address, been burned before, hence the site email.

  79. K-TR7 says:

    Gourcuff is on fire:scored a fk,hit the woodwork and had a close range effort saved.they are really strong.barca looking fluid without ibra…

  80. 4pigs says:

    Well if they are looking that good then KTR7 – lets hope we dont get Barca..

  81. K-TR7 says:

    Barca’s movement is fantastic.i would love to face them but only when gallas is fit,they would run sol ragged…

  82. rico says:

    Hi 4pigs, and KTR7, just watching the Bordox game, Chamakh looks good – he could be good in our side..

    I just hope we dont get Barca, I want revenge, but not in the quarters 😉

  83. rico says:

    Spot on KTR7, Big Sol is good, but he isn’t quick for 90 mins

  84. K-TR7 says:

    Messi has added a third after some sublime build up,the defending champs looking good.he has close control and dribbling to none.some passes he has made are orgasmic…

  85. rico says:

    Bordox are a bunch of cheating divers, CR9 would do well there…

    I hope we draw them, we will thrash their butts!!

  86. rico says:
