Forget Barca, lets worry about West Ham!!

Yesterday we all learned that we will be up against Barcelona in the Champions League Quarter Finals. It will be a match between two of the most exciting footballing teams in the world right now.

Arsene against Josep – the old v’s the new as far as attacking football managers go.

I think the tie will be great for football, great for players like Cesc Fabregas and Thierry Henry and in the end, great for us. To win the Champions League you have to beat the best, some think Barcelona are just that, so let’s go and do what we do best and that’s prove the pundits who dare write us off wrong!

All that though is a couple of weeks away yet, right now we have to concentrate on the other half of our possible double.

Tonight we are at home to West Ham, a team that conceded four goals to the chavs last weekend. If they can score four, then there is no reason why we cant either.

The good news is the little midfield maestro is back in the midfield as is the rock we have found in Alex Song. The down side is still no Robin van Persie, William Gallas, Johan Djourou . Other than that we have a pretty strong squad to choose from.

Before anyone tells me Gibbs and Ramsey are also injured, I know thanks, they are out for the season, the others will hopefull be seen again during this one!!

We have played West Ham 105 times in the league, winning 46 of them, losing 27 and drawing 32. The last match was a cup tie, we won 2-1 with Ramsey and Eduardo securing the away win.

We know Ramsey won’t be playing and I don’t think Eduardo will start either, but should he?

If we want to be in with a shout at the Premier League title we need to win every game and yes i know we have said that for the last few weeks, but it’s true, it may be obvious, but while we keep on winning, I’ll keep typing it, maybe it’s a ‘lucky thing’!!

Baring in mind that in eleven days time the Champions League match against Barcelona will take place, would that change your team selection for the game today if you were Arsene Wenger?

For me it has to be ‘NO’ – strongest eleven please boss, we can give players a rest when we have put the game to bed and after that they can rest all week, we dont play again until next Saturday!

Mine would be


Sagna/Eboue Sol TV Clichy

Cesc/Nasri Song Diaby

Rosicky/Theo Nik Arshavin

(Cesc/Rosicky depend on how fit they really are)

That should be a good enough side to win all three points, Nikki should be able to get a few passed Green and Theo against an ageing old Upson (ave) should be a one sided battle.Song should be able to contain Parker who is one of their better player imho.. And I don’t expect an old Spud (Mido) to cause too much of a problem, do you??

So today the team needs to forget the trip to The Ramblas and concentrate on the job in hand. Do that and we will win.

The Mancs play the Dippers on Sunday at home, the Chavs travel to Blackburn on the same day.

I predict a home win for us, an away win for the Dippers, and a draw for the Chavs – we then sit nicely on top of the Premier League. All we need to do then is stay there until the end of May πŸ™‚

Finally, good luck to the Bouldy Boys who travel to Wales to play Cardiff today, they kick off at 11am.

    Morning peoples, home win today then??

  2. K-TR7 says:

    Morning rico.i expect a win but we should remember west ham are sort of a bogey team to us.big sol must be wondering which movie he is in;he walked out on us against the hammers,was in nott county only few months ago,made his arsenal comeback game against hammer’s reserves,will play his first pl game at the emirates against the hammers and is about to play against barca the team he scored in 06 final.his resurgence is almost lazarasesque.AW may say otherwise but am sure he is already planning for barca.

  3. rico says:

    Morning KTR7, I dont think Sol will play today, sadly i think Silvestre will be in the team…

  4. Erick says:

    Morning all good day to increase the goal difference

  5. K-TR7 says:

    I’d like to drift to barca abit,its so exciting and scary at the same time rico.barca love to build their game from the back,hence when alves gallops upfield,messi can have the licence to drift inwards.defenders hate direct players like him hence they retreat further.behind messi,there will be acres of space for xavi and iniesta to operate which results in battering of teams.their lb doesn’t push forward as much to guard against counters leaving a three man defence.i feel that attack is the main form of defence,if AA can keep alves busy,messi won’t have much freedom to come infield hence he won’t be as effective and thats what stuttgart did to perfection in the first leg only to be conservative in second leg only to receive a battering.barca are a great team,but i don’t think they have faced an opposing team like us in the la liga.

  6. rico says:

    Morning Erick, if the chavs can, why can’t we…

    wouldn’t be surprised to see Dudu start today

  7. morning all just a quick hello
    is alex song now called peter? the rico “the rock”

  8. ktr7 read the title
    we have plenty of time for barca
    lets prepare for them by beating ‘ammers

  9. rico says:

    No probs KTR7, i think both sides play similar style of football, by that i mean free flowing and don’t defend defend defend.

    This is ideal for us, we have players with great pace in AA, Theo, and great creative players in Cesc, Rosicky, AA..

    I dont fear Barca as much as would have worried about facing the mancs…

  10. rico says:

    oi oi rsd, if its on the mind, share it – its all arsenal πŸ˜‰

    the title was directed at the team, they need to focus on today and not start thinking ahead, they can only do that after the birmingham game otherwise we will slip up..

  11. rico says:

    KTR7, take messi out and Barca’s attack is not anywhere near as good, fingers crossed a hamstring tweak comes his way πŸ˜‰

  12. K-TR7 says:

    A win is vital today to take us top.if we can nick an early goal floodgates will open.rico i think sol will start since he has a whole week to recover and we can’t trust silvestre to handle cole.our attackers such as cesc,AA,TR7,theo,nasri… need to get in goal scoring form ahead of barca game.i want a clean sheet today.we have conceded alot of goals due to lapses in concentration and individual errors which needs to be addressed before the tough tests ahead.we are due a goal fest this year…

  13. rico says:

    I want Sol to start, trust me, I don’t ever want to think Silvestre is a first choice player, TV will out do Cole i hope πŸ˜‰

    Would you start with Cesc or leave him on the bench?

  14. K-TR7 says:

    Cesc has to start to warm up.he is needed so as to kill off the game early,maybe he can grab a brace then take him off for tr7/nasri.we need him now more than ever.AW’s ego was crushed in paris,i’ve never seen him so dejected,i still remember him and henry staring at the trophy together after being awarded their medals.he may say otherwise but he must be relishing this tie.a victory over the defending champs would inflate his belief in the team so much.we knocked out milan as defending champs,what are the odds of that at the nou camp?zola is having nightmares of our attack,if he plays footy today he will be in for a long 90+minutes.

  15. rico says:

    Agree with starting Cesc, but only if he is fully fit, we don’t want any relapses. If Cesc plays i would start Rosicky over Nasri, get them get put to bed and then sub both tomas and cesc…

  16. K-TR7 says:

    I think cesc and theo will start rico.i think tomas will come from the was good to hear tomas helped theo through his injuries,ramsey should take note.tomas and other experienced squad members will be vital in the following fixtures:wham(h)birm(a)barca(h)wolves(h)barca(a)spurs(a).this is a daunting task,we need to win handsomely today so as to carry forward the momentum into those fixtures.

  17. rico says:

    Personally, I would start with Theo too, he is just starting to play, just beginning to show a little bit of guts and spirit. His crossing has improved a little and it will only get bettter by a good run in the team. With that his confidence will soar and we know what that does for a player…

    Look at Nani …

  18. rico says:

    We are a different squad now, we have team mates without any divide in the camp – everyone wants everyone to do well…. we are no longer a team with individuals

  19. would have thought theo would start rico we are at home seems to be aw’s philosophy with him

  20. @ oi oi rsd forlot(SE for soz mate)

  21. rico says:

    Hi rsd, i hope he plays, we need him ready and confidnt for the next couple of months..

  22. JonJon says:

    morning all…

  23. rico says:

    its a quiet one this moning …

  24. JonJon says:

    the only way i see wham getting any sort of result is if we have a cl draw hangover..

    the title is correct..

    and wenger is correct..weve been fighting for this trophy since august..lets concentrate on this and worry about barca when we come to it..

    ive been reading a barca blog this morning and one thing i noticed is that there is a common mentality that they didnt want to face us…

  25. chris says:

    We do NT have to win every game –
    6 wins might be enough imo
    Agree this has to be one of them though

  26. JonJon says:

    i agree chris

    i think it will be tight and winning everygame will be helpful but i still think the other two will drop at least 6 points..

    we can afford a draw somwhere..maybe 2

  27. yeah i did the predictor on the beeb site
    the otherday leaving out games which go either way and utd and chels have 4 while we had 2. so thats nice.
    morning jj did forget to say congrats yesterday kind of got caught up in all the hyperbowl ….

  28. rico says:

    I want us to win it before the end if you get my drift, as someone pointed out before the spuds game will be postponed and wouldn’t it be lovely to go there knowing we would clinch the title….

    and then come home with three points and a nice peice of silver…

  29. JonJon says:

    its written rico..

    we win the title at spurs..

  30. you could take me out moderation some one

  31. rico says:

    I am beginning to think so JJ πŸ™‚

    rsd, if you keep using different names that will happen… make you mind up which name you want… πŸ˜‰

  32. rico says:

    Thats my chores done for the day, merse reckons we are going to bag a hatful today πŸ™‚

  33. chris says:

    Good old f-ing Merse. That’s it then – he knows.

  34. JonJon says:

    its easy to see why rico..

    we have the momentum..

  35. Erick says:

    Whose home and whats cooking? πŸ™‚

  36. typical there all doom and gloom and now jumping on the bandwagon

  37. did you Stringfellowhawk says RvonP back 2 weeks

  38. JonJon says:

    i wouldnt pay much attention to him rsd

  39. JonJon says:

    ive always liked merse..speaks whats on his mind..

    i hate the bob wilson type who are just basically yes men….no opinions of there own..just agree with everything the ppl at the top say..

    which reminds me..rico i have a post lined up for next week…its a belter…i’ll put it in drafts over the weekend and u can bang it up through the week..

  40. wouldn’t say there yes man but know how to make there opinions get them type space

  57. 1985–1997 magic merse

    Born in Harlesden, London, Paul Merson started his career at Arsenal, joining the club as an apprentice in 1984. After a loan spell at Brentford, then under manager Frank McLintock, he made his debut for the Gunners on 22 November 1986 against Manchester City, and gradually established himself in George Graham’s successful Arsenal side of the late 1980s. By the 1988-89 season he was a regular on the right wing, at the end of which Arsenal secured the First Division title with a last gasp Michael Thomas goal in the final game of the season against Liverpool. Merson scored ten times that season, made his debut for the England U21 side, and was voted PFA Young Player of the Year.

    With Arsenal, Merson bagged another league championship in 1991, both the FA Cup and League Cup in 1993 (Merson scoring the first goal of the League Cup final), and the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1994. He also made his debut for the full England side, in a friendly against Germany on 11 September 1991.

    Paul Merson’s career was put on the line in November 1994 when he admitted to being an alcoholic and cocaine addict.[1] The Football Association arranged for Merson to undergo a three-month rehabilitation programme and he returned to the side in February 1995, just before the dismissal of George Graham as manager. Under caretaker manager Stewart Houston, Merson helped Arsenal reach the Cup Winners’ Cup final for the second season in a row.

    In 1995-96, Merson remained a regular first team player under Arsenal’s new manager Bruce Rioch and continued to play regularly in 1996-97 following the appointment of ArsΓ¨ne Wenger. In a somewhat surprising move, at the end of the 1996-97 Premiership campaign, in which Arsenal finished third, Merson was sold to relegated Middlesbrough in a Β£5 million deal – making him the most expensive player ever signed by a non-Premiership club. Whilst Arsene Wenger had offered a new two year contract, Middlesbrough offered double the salary available at Arsenal. In all Merson played 423 times for Arsenal, scoring 99 goals.

    rsd, they have gone, wanted them out long before the game, even though one was a Gooner, she just talks too much πŸ˜‰

  60. rico says:

    Merse makes me laugh to, he gets himself in such a pickle sometimes and when he does he blinks a lot, but boy he makes be chuckle

    I wish we had his kind of a player in our current squad, awesome in his day, i think thtas where AW gets it wrong, nothing like a pre-match six pints of lager to get the team on fire πŸ˜‰

  61. rico says:

    villa drew 2-2 with wolves, and at home, bit of a shock… i would rather they finished 4th than citeh, spuds or dippers…

  62. didn’t even know he was a Harlesden boy we might have even gone to same school

  77. JonJon says:

    nah mate that aint me…lol

    that the one and only david rocky rocastle…

    played in the same team as merse in the george graham era and was an absolute legend…

    cancer unfortunately cut his life short when he was early thirties but hes one of my favorite arsenal players…

  78. chris says:

    Depends on his real fitness.

    If it would help him be safe for the rest of the seeason maybe leave him on the bench and hope the lads can manage without him – a bit like A Villa, I guess.

    If he’s 100% he’s in. Wenger’s call (ideally not Cesc’s).

  79. JonJon says:

    yeah chris..

    100 and hes in..bring him off when we 3 up or something

    if he aint 100 dont risk it

  80. ohhhhhhhhh rocky rocky………….

  81. Erick says:

    Everybody is looking forward to the Barca game and every decision is in forecast to the CL all in all lets hope we can improve the goal difference coz that might win us the League

    Well done Bouldy’s Boys, they beat Cardiff 4-2 πŸ™‚

    Two goals in the last 15 minutes saw Arsenal Under-18s register a 4-2 victory in Cardiff on Saturday morning.

    Benik Afobe struck early for Steve Bould’s side before Jonathan Meades pegged the Gunners back in the 31st minute.

    But the game wasn’t level for long and Oguzhan Ozyakup restored Arsenal’s lead within 60 seconds.

    Nathaniel Jarvis bagged Cardiff’s second equaliser 10 minutes before the break but late strikes from Zak Ansah and Josh Ree saw Bould’s side go home with the points

  87. JonJon says:

    am a bovverd… lol

  110. rico says:

    I would much rather Diaby play, he gives us more than Denilson – have to be honest I wouldn’t be fussed if Denilson was sold, not with Eastmond and Coquelin coming through…

  111. rico says:

    I forget that Cesc is still only 22 years old… Seems he should be 25-27 by now..

  112. rico says:

    Song is still 22yrs old too, frightening really…

  160. tis the emirates mate why bother turning up you just get told to sit and if you dont
    some will snitch you to the stewards
    if you even make eye contact with person sitting next to you

  161. blame the prem for snitch a fan

  162. JonJon says:

    thats why i dont go..its shit…full of the sit politely and clap types…

  163. Erick says:

    We are into gear 2 guys get in

  164. JonJon says:

    big bad sol

  165. join the riders away πŸ˜‰ qt

  166. Erick says:

    Dangerous from Sol

  167. rico says:

    i agree though rsd about Sol, and Silvestre – they are good enough for this kind of game, but against the top sides, they are not quick enough..

  168. rico says:

    the fans are dreadfully quiet, talk about get behind your team…

  169. JonJon says:

    were pissing about too much now

    showboating no good at 1-0

    finish them off dont piss about

  170. JonJon says:


  171. JonJon says:

    3 game ban


    fuck sake

  172. rico says:

    BIG AL πŸ™‚

    That might wake the fans up…

  173. JonJon says:


    need the crowd to sing now

    like when ade got sent off v pool last year…

  174. rico says:

    I feel an appeal coming on for that red card…

  175. JonJon says:

    diving bastard..

    it wasnt even a pen

  176. rico says:

    even waddle says that the player went down too easy…

  177. JonJon says:

    no tv for 3 games..

    if we appeal could be 4 games..

  178. rico says:

    Atkinson may be the ref
    but fans think Baldrick is running the line….

    espn commentator

  179. JonJon says:

    that was coming though..

    we were fucking about too much and thats dangerous when only 1-0..

  180. Erick says:

    Jesus talk abt the ref decisions what the hell

  181. Erick says:

    What do you think when it gets to this tell me lads

  182. was soft but………

  183. JonJon says:

    that we bring it on ourselves erick…

    should have been 3-4 up before that even happened…

    denilson and song pushing too far up wham hitting long ball ….same old story

  184. JonJon says:

    it was soft but why do we have to have 100 one-twos before we shoot..??

  185. rico says:

    In a week when Stevie me me me gets away with a two finger salute….

    We are far to fancy, we should have this dead and buried but now we have a very difficult 45 minutes!!

    I say put Song in the defence, change Nasri for Rosicky of Theo – the latter would put them on the back foot a bit…

  186. Erick says:

    True we need a striker with killer instinct to kill off games early but Keep the Faith

  187. move song really silvestre can deal with anyone spec with song infront

  188. rico says:

    That hammer on a yellow could soon be off, then we will see what happens…

  189. JonJon says:

    we always play better with 10 men anyway…

  190. like in training jj

  191. rico says:

    nasri is not at his best – get him off

  192. JonJon says:


  193. rico says:

    nice to hear the fans now… in fact is this a game behind closed doors???

  194. rico says:

    oh, have they woken up…

  195. avenell says:

    Hi Rico
    Mrs Ave here – Ave is working on site and unable to see the game and because on ESPN no replay later tonight he wanted me to let you know, because he will be unable to do the match report and wonder if JJ would be so kind.

  196. rico says:

    Hi Mrs Ave, poor old ave 😦

    I will try and sweet talk JJ – thanks for letting us know

  197. JonJon says:

    im more pissed off with the fact weve lost tv for 3

    only thing that concerns me with 10 men is that denilson gonna struggle to control the tempo like song did and song will start to push up more and more……

    might be worth throwing diaby on

  198. JonJon says:

    nobodies helping bentder..

    dont tell me we gonna defend for 45 minutes

  199. rico says:

    JJ, we will appeal and win, everyone says it was wrong…

    we need one chance and take it, that should be enough, i do think diaby would give us more than denilson can in this situation..

  200. rico says:

    diaby would, he has the legs to get to and fro for 30 mins, denilson doesnt

  201. rico says:

    bollox, here comes cole!!

  202. JonJon says:

    songs fucking ace

  203. JonJon says:

    pissing about again

    just fucking shoot

  204. double double double

  205. rico says:

    diaby is doing really well…

  206. rico says:

    yellow ref…… gutless ref…

  207. rico says:

    why dudu, why not walcott??

  208. JonJon says:


  209. rico says:

    why did aa not pass …


  210. rico says:


  211. rico says:

    id have stuck theo on in the middle, run forrest runnnn

  212. rico says:

    dudu to get the third????

  213. rico says:

    jj, did you see the earlier from mrs ave?

    are you up for a match report ?

  214. rico says:

    motm – alex song, tip top performance

  215. rico says:

    all the empty seats….. so bloody sad..

  216. rico says:

    great result but peed off with the sending off…

    top of the league then, this time we stay there….

  217. Erick says:

    Song best Player Arsenal got he is great

  218. JonJon says:

    yeah i’ll do it rico

    good football
    good result
    shit ref
    shit fans

  219. JonJon says:

    i love alex song

    i cant understand a word he says but well done son


  221. Erick says:

    Its called accent JJ πŸ™‚ We are top RSD is it may yet?

  222. JonJon says:


    i know erick..he could speak alien for all i care…the boy does his talking on the pitch and i understand that perfectly…

    if he keeps this up he gotta be african player of the year???

  223. JonJon says:

    dont want to upset you rico but we all liverpool fans tomorrow…

  224. rico says:

    JJ, now thats a great heading… – thanks me old mucker πŸ˜‰

  225. rico says:

    πŸ˜† – bet your bottom dollar i will be too, quietly πŸ˜‰

  226. Erick says:

    Will AW appeal the TV red you think 😦

  227. rico says:

    i do Erick, but like JJ says, we need to be careful that the FA don’t add an extra game, I am sure AW will study it well before making a decision. The Rio appeal was hideous, a straight elbow in the face, this is very different though i think

  228. W.A.T.H says:

    Evening all……………..

  229. Erick says:

    He has been solid at the back its so sad 😦 😦 Evening WATH

  230. rico says:

    Evening wath, crap news about TV

  231. W.A.T.H says:

    Just a thought………….. is it a one game ban or 3 game ban….? It wasn’t violent conduct….! It was none the less a disgraceful decision the ref and linesmen made a huge fuck up…! player dived and it was outside the box if there was any contact as well. Always always we get stitched up…!

  232. Erick says:

    Think the ref went by the linesman call 3 games it is WATH

  233. rico says:

    straight red gets three wath… prof foul

  234. W.A.T.H says:

    Fuckin joke, prof foul my arse……! ref was miles away and linesman saw the prick dive…..! The world and there wife know it was a shocking decision but JJ is right we appeal watch them make it 4 games….! that could of just fucked our season…!

  235. Erick says:

    I believe Song can make the difference WATH just Keep the Faith

  236. rico says:

    AW was fuming wath, i think he will appeal… all the pundits said it was shocking, I am hoping the ref watches it sand says he made a mistake, then it will be revoked i think

    Did any of you folk see Sports Relief last night..

  237. rico says:

    We put Song in the defence Erick then we lose what he gives in the midfield – its cack, it really is…

  238. W.A.T.H says:

    Rico when do any of these refs “admit” to a mistake…… Never it won’t happen and thats us in the shit…! Aw wasnt the only one fuming Rico…!

  239. rico says:

    One or two have – he is meant to be a good ref (mme, i dont think) if i were him and going home to see the reviews on my display and listen to the slating i got, i would put my hands up – i just hope…

    Every Arsenal fan was left fuming wath, especially when you see the replay ten times, the decision is f-in shocking….

  240. Erick says:

    AW cld not celebrate the Cesc goal for 2 seconds he just smiled and went back to gloom but Rico you wanna see Silvester partner Sol gues not 😦 😦

  241. rico says:

    Ramsey is already walking without crutches!!!

    Incredible really

  242. Erick says:

    Wow he cld be back sooner than expected πŸ™‚ atleast that can cheer me up

  243. avenell says:

    Evening Roadsters.. Just got in from work..

    Was the game any good apart from the piss poor decisions?

  244. avenell says:

    Thanks for your email Erick.. I have passed it on to my bestest blog buddy.. 😳

  245. W.A.T.H says:

    Rico I hope your right but can’t see him changing his decision…. Evenin Ave, we played ok and least showed plenty of bottle…! AND credit where it’s due I can’t stand the bloke but Denilson also had a pretty good game…! Shock horror…!

  246. avenell says:

    That’s not a bad thing WATH.. Denilson may have to play DM, I would pull Song back to centre half..

    What other games will TV miss apart from birmingham?

  247. rico says:

    Hi ave

    My take is look at the fourth fixture, if it isn’t the spuds or citeh then appeal – but as it stands its

    B’ham A
    Wolves H
    Spuds H
    Citeh H
    B’burn A

    Spuds should get through to semis of FA Cup so that will be postponed, can we afford to risk a ‘frivolous appeal’ ??

  248. rico says:

    Apart from the citeh game, we ‘could afford’ to take a chance on an appeal…

  249. rico says:

    wath – all the ref has to do is say that he didnt see the incident at the time and took the word of the lino, having seen the replay he can say he wouldn’t have siven the penalty…

    But I know, as we all know, its Arsenal and he won’t…

  250. rico says:

    What did Denilson do apart from score?? That is not me being sarcastic either??

  251. rico says:

    Ave, your 9.12pm comment, you mean you copped out and left it to me πŸ˜‰

  252. avenell says:

    Hi Rico.. How are ya?

    Yep.. with a bit of creeping.. which you deserve.

  253. rico says:

    I would still rather see Diaby next to Cesc than Denilson….

    Anyway, I am done in…

    Catch you tomorrow

    Night all

  254. avenell says:

    Night rico.. speak tomorrow.

  255. rico says:

    Worn out ave, both had some kind of bug, just feel tired all the time but then can’t sleep, so annoying…

    was only teasing you πŸ˜‰

    I’m looking forward to Erick having his post up, I hope he is to…

  256. W.A.T.H says:

    Nite Rico………..
    Heard yids been penciled in for Apr 14th…? if they in the semi so would still be 3rd game TV misses

  257. rico says:

    wath, thanks, i thought it would be a bit later than that – what happens if they draw their match, maybe the replay would have to be on that date πŸ˜‰

  258. rico says:

    see you tomorrow, i have a feeling jj may let go in his post if you get my drift….

  259. avenell says:

    Good ol’ JJ.. πŸ™‚

  260. Chim-chimney, Chim-chimney…………

    Why Was JJ Born So Beautiful……….

  261. Erick says:

    No problem Ave I know she will edited it good and Rico yes i am looking forward to it Morning all

  262. Erick says:

    Talk is TV misses one game πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ how true is this?? Anyone please confirm this

  263. rico says:

    Morning all
