Ian Wright – Legend or Bellend??

Every now and then ex-players at our club seem to be a target of abuse from certain sections of the support..Old or young, new fan or old, these sections have a common theme to their outbursts and it normally concentrates on their hatred of the media..Any ex-player or legend who dares to voice an opinion about our club is labelled in the all too familiar category as ‘doomer’ and it appears that barring Bob Wilson, who is just a yes man to the Arsenal media machine, nobody is safe.

From Adams to Merson. From Parlour to the one and only Ian Wright, they are all constantly mocked. Hung drawn and quartered and every word they speak is regarded as utter garbage. It doesn’t stop there though. Their name gets dragged through the mud by the same people who at one point or another sang their name with pride, had their poster on their wall or had their name printed on their shirt…We loved these players…none moreso than Ian Edward Wright..

Wrighty was a showman..Regarded as one of the darlings of Highbury. This was a man who was a master not only of banging is 25-30 goals a season, but he was a master of winding up the opposition-fans and players alike. He was the king of practical jokes. The ultimate character and everyone associated with Arsenal adored him..

Wrighty was and still is a legend. This was a man who was voted as 4th in the list of Arsenal greats.. His sublime skill and finishing amassed him a grand total of 185 goals in only seven years…A landmark only surpassed by someone very special..But Wrighty didn’t have players like Pires and Vieira behind him..He had the likes of Morrow and Hillier, which makes his achievement even more remarkable..

Wrighty was one of the players who helped put Arsenal on the map..He was arrogant and cocky..A force of nature on and off the pitch. He was outspoken and wasn’t afraid to speak his mind…

Many believe that the real reason Rioch was sacked was because Wrighty issued a ‘him or me’ ultimatum.. Wrighty was one of those uncontrollable players..It was rumoured that when George Graham was going through tactics and training regimes, everyone else had a particular role and had to follow it strictly, but Wrighty was allowed to do what he wanted. It was the only way GG could handle him.. Rioch had a different approach and Wrighty handed in a transfer request..it was later retracted and Rioch lost his job… Enter Arsene Wenger..So thanks Wrighty..

Lets not forget Wrighty’s work out of football..He was awarded an MBE for his services to charity and he is the patron of the African-Caribbean Leukemia Trust..Which is something not always remembered such is his ‘Jack The Lad’ personality…

He’s a top bloke..Yet he is still very outspoken in issues regarding Arsenal..

Yes he says a lot of things that many of us don’t agree with and I understand why some people get wound up, but he doesn’t deserve the abuse he sometimes gets..To be honest I  just laugh, he cracks me up still to this day..

Nothing has changed about him..The Wrighty we see and hear now is the same Wrighty we saw and heard then. He’s only speaking his mind as we all do every day on the blogs.

But Wrighty has that certain advantage..Which is that he’s done more to put Arsenal where they are than any of us could ever dream of.. Who are we to tell Wrighty his opinion isn’t wanted or he’s a ‘doomer’..What right do we have to tell one of the Arsenal greats of all time that he should sit down and shut up and do what we say and do..

Wrighty’s rebellious..Its what made him who he was..If you don’t like what he has to say then don’t listen..its that simple..

He’s passionate, he wears his heart on his sleeve and to be honest, judging by the noise in the Emirates we could do with some Wrighty’s in the ground on matchdays. Instead of the sit down nicely and clap politely type..The ‘yes man’ type that make it seem like a morgue..

I think the problem certain fans have with ex players such as Wrighty, is that they are that obsessed by the media that they forget certain aspects of the football club..They are that caught up in Wenger’s vision for the future they believe in it more than Wenger does himself and it seems to blank their memories of the past. Tradition is so important to a football club..No matter how you look at it the past is what makes us what we are today. Wrighty’s part of that tradition..He may annoy us with his remarks sometimes but its to be expected from him..Thats just Wrighty..No matter how you abuse him or drag his name through the mud you will never take away the fact he’ll always be a legend..His status doesn’t give him the right to say what he feels..But nor does what he says give you the right to tell him he’s wrong or vilify him..Its just his opinion..

Stand up Ian Wright.. Top footballer, top bloke, funny as hell…LEGEND…

Buts thats just my opinion..Whats yours??

    Morning peoples 🙂

  2. rico says:

    JonJon – top post about a top man, he will always be a Legend in my book even though he talked his lad into following the money instead of his heart….

    SWP made a very wrong move, if he had joined us he may just have ended up following in his fathers footsteps in more ways than one.

    SWP could have also ended up being a Legend, but of The Emirates rather than Highbury, now look at him, struggling to get in a shitty citty side ….. Beggars belief 😉

  3. swp hasn’t got enough technique to play wengerball.
    Wrighty is a leg
    but has sold him self to the media and now says anything to sell type space.

  4. K-TR7 says:

    Morning rico.brum have a strong home record,hull did,stoke did so i hope our momentum will see us through.i feel if eduardo is to get over his demons,tomorrow is the day to do it.with eduardo injury being publicised alot,i feel the ref will be quick to punish rash challenges and brum players will want to avoid another one happening there.

  5. rico says:

    morning rsd, when he first left city he would have slotted in just nicely, the chavs ruined him imho

  6. rico says:

    Mornin KTR7 – did you get my email ok??

    Re Brum, I think they have gone off the boil a bit, its a good time for us to play them..

    If Sol and Song play at the back just for this game we will be ok, if Silly comes in along Sol, then I worry..

    I think Dudu will be on the bench ready to come on to a standing ovation to all, then to top if off he will score 🙂

  7. johnny hoy says:


  8. rico says:

    Johnny Hoy – who exactly are you suggesting is a moron?? Ian Wright??

  9. LDB says:

    The answer is, ofcourse, both.

  10. rico says:

    morning LBD, welcome to AR, why do you say both??

  11. Jojo says:

    He’s both.

  12. andy says:

    bellend, and id like to put into question his integrity youve granted him, lets not forget about his crafty exploits in south africa, which is by far a transparent money making scheme and not much else (stephen warnocks involved for christ sake). and i cant even listen to him on five live, let alone watch him on tv, but that parts just my preference. again tho, he’s a bellend

  13. chris says:

    I’m not normally too bothered about pundits ex=players or not but I don’t like the Adrian Durham Stan Collymore let’s wind up people to get a response (it’s fair because we do it to everyone), to me it’s lazy and sometimes nasty – and Wrighty gone to play with them so he’s bound to get bit tainted by association. I heard him say to Durham “one thing i’ve learnt is how much enjoyment you can get from other people’s misery” and that just sums it up for me.
    Durham will stick to his anti-Arsenal (anti-foreigner) stace whether he believes it or not doesn’t matter so when Wrighty didn’t stand up to it he got washed away and he seemed quite happy about it.
    He also doesn’t do himself any good by that bangingon about Sean’s situation andhow it isn’t fair all the time imo.
    Finally, in an article supposedly about not slagging off ex-players, how come you get to dismissively slate Bob Wilson?

  14. rico says:

    Morning Jojo and andy

    andy, i think thats what JojJon is aying in his post, can we forget all he did for our club just because he has been a pratt for a few years now…

  15. andy says:

    no rico of course we cant, he was incredible, unbleiveable really. and a goop point was made in the fact that he achieved his goal scoring tally without the help of such players that henry did.
    however, i will dispute the claim “He’s a top bloke”, because i dont think he is. unless that quote is only made to describe his footballing skills, and not his personality

  16. rico says:

    morning chris, good to see you here, i don’t think Wrighty has done himself any favours either, especially where SWP is concerned, Wright to his boy to go to the chavs, ever since then he has been moaning….

  17. did you see what someone did to collymores wiki

    Stan Collymore – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Stanley Victor “WOMAN BEATING, SEXUAL DEVIENT” Collymore (born 22 January 1971) is a retired British footballer who was active at a senior level from 1990 until 2001. He was below average in both skill and IQ. In fact in IQ he was a single digit figure.
    its gone now of course but so funny

  18. rico says:

    For me andy he is a top bloke for his football, what he has done since he left us doesn’t really affect me – he is just like all the other pundits now, anti arsenal, anti AW, barring Dixon, Adams and Keown of course 😉

    I forgot the ‘average’ players providing his goal tally, accept of cousre after the arrival of Sir Dennis, he was a little be special wasn’t he 😉

  19. chris says:

    just to say i used to love his 5live saturday morning show with Bright that was really breezy, cheeky and relaxed andthey bounced off each other – now i’m preferring Bright as a pundit but then it’s probably easier when you’re less high profile

  20. LDB says:

    Well, anyone who has ever tuned in to “live from studio five” will find it incredibly hard to resist the temptation to label wrighty a bit of a bellend. His personality was far more enjoyable when you didnt have to listen to what he was saying too often, whether this is on the channel 5 “news” programme or his lowest-common-denominator approach to football punditry.

    That said, the bloke is ofcourse an arsenal legend and i dont deny him the right to express negative opinions above the club whom he gave so much to. I just prefferred it when he was seen rather then heard 😉

  21. LDB says:

    regards my first sentence: except the guy posting just above me 😀

  22. the only shows you can listen to now days are h and j and the arsenal podcast least they dont take themselves to seriously.
    after all the balls we talk we aint aw we’re not even managers so it aint gona make a one bit of difference what we think.
    so why not just take the piss and have a laugh.

    oh and fishermans blues oh course

  23. rico says:

    LDB & chris – good comments 🙂

  24. Lettraggad says:

    He is a Legend off course .. One of the reasons I started follwing Arsenal.. But he has been Anti Arsenal for a long time now. Advisng his son to sign for Chelsea when a deal was more or less through at Arsenal says it all. He is bigheaded and cant accept that Arsenal would go on without him .. his advised players more than once to leave our club .. not that I think they care what he thinks .. but how can you call yourself an Arsenal player and deprive us of reinforcements or advise our stars to leave. He was ousted by Wenger who saw him as a spent force he cant forget that , but his achevements after he left proved wenger was right.
    Ian wright the player = Legend.
    Ian Wright the pundit = Anti Arsenal Idiot.

  25. adam says:

    Let’s face it, Wrighty was never very bright. But he does love a few quid so sells himself on that Talkshite show cheaply by talking some of the biggest nonsense I’ve ever heard. SWP is a decent player capable of briliant moments but he is not an Arsenal player. Ian Wright used to constantly big him up but Wenger is too shrewd to listen to that cheap hype. Wrighty was a great player, but now he is just a knob. Sad, but true.

  26. rico says:

    I struggle to listen to most of the pudits these days, especially Hanson and Lawrenson – two ex dippers who just cant find it in their hearts to dish out praise when its so deserved…

    We can romp passed a side yet they still think we ‘lack the players’ to win anything. I hope this teams shoves that right back down their throats!

  27. rico says:

    Welcome adam and Lettraggad, good to see you here on Avenell Road..

    That’s just it, top footballer, knob of a pundit, but I try to think of him for his football at Arsenal

  28. Andy B says:

    Great baller, scored some of my all time favourite goals, can never forget what he did for the club…but he should think before he opens his mouth, many of his comments are ill advised and he can come across as anti Arsenal on many occasions – hark back to stuff he has said at the beginning of this season…and the last.

    Bit of a bellend – but nowt compared to some of the exScouse clodders we see these days. Collymore, I mean, what the fu….

  29. Ian says:

    This is still a democracy ffs so let him have his say. We all have the right to agree or disagree but one thing’s for sure, he more than earned the right to call it as he sees it.

  30. rico says:

    Morning Andy B and Ian

    Andy, makes you wonder what these presenters are told before they take their jobs on – especailly ex dippers, as i said earlier they are just so biased towards the mancs and chavs!!

  31. rico says:

    ian – for sure he can have his say, but do agree with what he says most of the time??

  32. Tricky D says:

    Regardless of the bollocks he spouts in the media, Wright is an Arsenal legend. Remember him as the great player he was for us, not for his post Arsenal ‘career’.

  33. Chris says:

    Legend. Anyone who say’s otherwise isn’t an Arsenal fan!!!

  34. Goonergerry says:

    Wrighty was a great footballer who scored so many goals for us he has earned immunity from criticism. Doesn’t mean I agree with him- whatever you think he is or what he thinks he is- he is part of the Arsenal family so leave it out.

  35. rico says:

    Hi Tricky D, Chris and Goonergerry, good to see you all on Avenell Road..

    Thats a harsh statement Chris, I think he is a post Arsenal knob, but for his days with us he will always be a Legend..

    TrickyD, I don’t listen to him, I want to remeber him as our player, not a pundit. As the latter he is dreadful!

  36. rico says:

    gerry, even the closest of families have fall outs 😉

  37. Erick says:

    Morning all, JJ top top piece I like Ian as a player he has done great things but as a pundit he is paid to say what he thinks and if thats what he feels he has a right to voice. During a match a pundit will play talk crap about a player but when he score he praises him that what they are paid to do talk talk….

  38. Eastupper says:

    Let’s firstly divide the argument, Wright was a great player, but he is now a media whore the two are completely separate and neither qualifies you for being very good at the other. Any credibility he had as a pundit ended when he left the BBC for more money to deliberately antagonise gooner listeners on Talkshite radio with the sole purpose of raising revenue for that franchise. That he left that for ‘Live on Five’ simply reinforces my view that he will do or say anything for money.

  39. rico says:

    Welcome Eastupper – spot on 🙂

    Morning Erick, I think the majority feel the same, Legend as a footballer and a knob in the media…

  40. stan says:

    good article and I liked most of what I read and then some how get the feeling this is another dig at AW…funny you say we must respect legends and others opinions and I agree but some how I feel your having a dig at two arsenal greats arguably had greater influence then righty…so may be we all should look at our selves before and learn the meaning of word hypocrisy…any ways we loved righty for what he was and he has not changed just he has a different job ….he will always stand a special place in every arsenal fans heart even his worst critics would respect his contribution to the club

  41. Potter says:

    So some of you don’t like what he says, but the question you have to ask is whether he believes what he is saying. So he is a Dein supporter, so are many fans, so he believes The Arsenal could do with more English players, as do many others. He believes in a more direct approach than Wengerball gives, well how many people call shoot in the ground. He reflects the differing views of the people around me at the ground. You don’t have to agree with everything he says any more than you have to agree with anyone else, but whenever he speaks I hear a desire to see The Arsenal win. If you don’t agree with his view of how to go about it, don’t get so precious and abuse the man just treat him like the guy behind you that spouts crap sometimes and gets it right on others.

  42. rico says:

    Morning stan & potter – good to see you here, just going to read your comments now

  43. rico says:

    stan – i dont think jj is having a pop at AW, he is thanking wrighty for getting rioch the sack, otherwise we wouldn’t have arsene and none of the wonderful football we witness…

  44. rico says:

    Potter, if Wrughty doesn’t believe what he is actually saying, then why the heck does he say it??

    He should speak from his head and heart, not from the hand that feeds him – bbc etc

  45. Erick says:

    Rico am a media student and when the Editor and in the case of Ian the producer will make you do anything just to sell a story thats how it works you go by the script and sometimes it leads you to say things you would not want to its not about the heart or head it all about Sales and attracting listeners

  46. Potter says:

    As I said that is the question the doubters have to ask themselves. “I do “, I think he wants the best for The Arsenal but he sees things from a different angle than the guy on the terrace. I think there are people that can’t take criticism of the club and the way it is run and they find it easier to rubbish the person that says it than address the remarks. Now if you want an ex player that seems to find it impossible to say anything positive about us, try Alan Smith or anyone that says “” They play wonderful football , but “”

  47. rico says:

    Erick, that’s interesting and opens a whole new can of worms really, i never knew such ‘directives’ were given. To a degree i can understand if for the newspapers but when reporting on sport i thought it would come from the reporter…

  48. rico says:

    Potter, thats what they all say, I agree with some of the buts too, like we need a great keeper, a great HM and a great striker….

  49. Erick says:

    Yes it does come from a the reporter but they have to rules and procedure which include agenda setting and when it does you will have to let loose and as the say in media “bad news is good news”

  50. Potter says:

    “Like we need a great keeper, a great HM and a great striker….”

    As do I, and I would think most fans do.I would like a young commanding Centreback too Don’t get the impression that I have rosey glasses I just try to be objective and see both sides of a balance sheet.

  51. Gadget says:

    There should be an option for both. Wright the Arsenal player = legend. Wright the pundit = bellend

  52. rico says:

    Potter – I don’t and wouldn’t think that, I see where you are coming from, I forgot the CH – four players and our club would rule the world – and I truly believe that…

  53. Erick says:

    A good example would be AA statement that some media houses took and misquoted him its that easy especially when they want high ratings

  54. rico says:

    Welcome Gadget, I will tell the author 😉 😉

    Erick – add to that the most cruel headlines too, just to get the read – it has the opposite affect on me sometimes… But you are right, bad news is great news for reporters…

  55. Erick says:

    Gadget spot on media is 90% entertainment never take it seriously

  56. alvares babu says:

    Ian is an Arsenal legend

  57. A says:

    Ian Wright 5 – 10 years ago = Ledgend

    Ian Wright Now = Bellend

  58. pundits are just piss heads anyway

  59. wrighty might be a leg in arse shirt but when he aint

  60. rico says:

    A, sorry for the delay, good to see you here, i think we all feel pretty much the same… 😉

  61. Erick says:

    Wenger aint choosing between Epl and Cl it seems we are going for the double 🙂 🙂

  62. rico says:

    Why not Erick, we are still in them both, this is our season, I can feel it… 🙂

  63. JonJon says:

    ian wright wright wright……

    now theres a name i aint seen in a while..hello A..hope your well

    afternoon guys

  64. rico says:

    Afternoon JJ, great post my friend 🙂

  65. rico says:

    You must tell me how to put the polls up JJ 😦

  66. Erick says:

    Afternoon JJ your piece got people knocking Congrats 🙂 😉

  67. Erick says:

    Rico Its Red and White all the way Come on all see is the Brums no other B in sight 😉

  68. rico says:

    I’ll be glad when 3pm gets here tomorrow Erick, I can’t wait – Also Big Guns who has been on here is off to the game and sitting with the brummie fans, he will have a tale to tell when he gets back… should be good..

    What other ‘B’ is there Erick 😉 😉

  69. rico says:

    Anyone think Villa can stuff the Chavs tomorrow??

  70. rico says:

    and Little Jack to score the winner against the Mancs 😛 🙂

  71. Erick says:

    No Other B Rico 😉 the first game villa won 2-1 Pensioners are missing 5 first squad player their defence is exposed i see a draw and Wilshere will score against the Mancs believe that 🙂 🙂

  72. Erick says:

    The game here will be at 6 hope we can do our business in the first 45minutes Sol can do with a breather

  73. Erick says:

    Rico did you catch RSD blog this week good stuff in there 🙂 🙂

  74. rico says:

    I’m going for a Villa win to, as long as their strikers are on form they will put a few passed Cech…

    I haven’t been on rsd’s site this week, i try and read his post’s but its been a busy week 😦

  75. Erick says:

    Cech is back mmmh thought he was out for a month??? He had this interview with an old Arsenal supporter and did a photoshop kind of thing funny when you get time check it out! Am hoping 4 a slip up this weekend from the Mancs and Pensioner we are one point behind the pensioner and their was a time we were 11 behind Slap me am I dreaming

  76. rico says:

    Villa won’t be easy for chavs Erick, they have quick strikers who could destroy a dodgy defence, Villa are due a good game to 😉

  77. Erick says:

    Think the spud and citeh game will be tricky for us?

  78. rico says:

    Hopefully the spuds will be knackered Erick, not too worried about Citeh

    Off for a couple of hours all, got to clean up after the builders 😦 😦

  79. Kev says:

    It’s clear to see Wrighty has another agenda now days. Wasn’t always like this, i remember the days after he left football and started being a pundit and in them days he always referred to the arsenal as ‘I’ and ‘We’ (like he was one of us and still had the arsenal blood running though his veins).

    Not now though, now he feels he has to pass himself off the same as the other guys running the media in this country by being critical of the arsenal & what arsene wenger is trying to build which is even more amazing considering the financial muscle that the other clubs have over us yet we’re still up there fighting, that’s what really winds the other clubs up!!!

    Pundits are all alike, so are a lot of supporters come to that (short sighted & narrow minded). On one hand pundits like to slat arsene for not spending, then straight after they talk about the amount of debt in football and question the ethics of the spending policy of such clubs like west ham & portsmouth. Well you can add Chelsea, Man Unt, Man City, Liverpool,Tottenham etc to that (clubs that are either run on debt or have rich sugar daddies helping them out which if left would really leave that club up the creek without a puddle so to speak). And yes i know we have debt but that is down to the stadium and is manageable debt as (and because of arsene wenger) we have a clear blue print as to how we will pay this debt off and then, mark my words, we will become one of the richest and most profitable clubs in the world. And all this whilst remaining self sufficient and not reliant on borrowing vast sums of money to keep competing!

    So yes Wrighty use to be a legend, but like so other many people he got swayed by the colour of money and is now happy to be yet another puppet in the media circus.

  80. Ian says:

    Rico, I seldom agree with anything Wrighty says but I also don’t think someone who’s given our club so much should be labelled a bellend because he has somewhat outlandish views, especially by people who professed to love him only a few years ago. Live and let live.

  81. K-TR7 says:

    Anyone home…

  82. rico says:

    Hi Kev, thanks for your lovely comment, needless to say you won’t be coming on unless the name calling for the author/owner promises to cease….

  83. rico says:

    Ian, think about what else could rhyme with Legend, Wrighty is one of JJ’s fav’s I think…

  84. rico says:

    Afternoon KTR7 🙂

  85. Kev says:

    Rico, what’s the difference between my comment and the article asking to vote if Wrighty is legend or bellend??

    One sentence (and not even a swear word in the whole thing aimed at you, jj or wrighty) and you don’t post it!!! Also was just my opinion because i didn’t agree with the article so just goes to show the blog is heavily sensored!!!

  86. rico says:

    Kev, its not heavily sensored, honest, we just dont slate the author – if you are happy for me to remove the insult to JJ, then of course, you can get your butt on here and say what you want within reason 🙂

    All we ask for on here is respect to fellow bloggers…

  87. rico says:

    One other thing Kev, are you Kev or Ian ????

  88. Kev says:

    Fair point Rico, yeah delete the top line and will bear in mind in future.

    And yes it’s kev. Cheers mate!

  89. JonJon says:

    evening all..

    thanks rico, yeah i’ll show about the polls i’ll email u later..

    kev nice comment…i agree with everything except for your first and last paragraph but what all the middle paragraphs has to do with why wrighty gets slagged is beyond me..

    its not an anti arsene post either or anti arsenal..im saying i like ian wright still so if that makes me anti wenger youve got issues..

    and for those who think wrighty told SWP to join the chavs instead of us are talking bollox

    chelsea paid 23mil for him and 70k a week wages..

    we didnt even match it..no other team did so chelsea were his only option…

  90. JonJon says:

    and 72% of the voters today agree that wrightys a legend so we are the majority

    im the winner, you lose…fact

  91. poll didn’t have enough options

    i demand a recount

  92. JonJon says:

    lol rsd.. 😉

  93. leg for in footballing terms till 98 then sold soul
    turned to the rest of the media a whore for the money as cloughy once said

    ” the majority knew nout as player nout as managers still know nout today. yet how they continue to get quoted in media and droning on in tv interviews, trying to convince the public and themselves that they have the faintest idea how football works. it makes my blood boil.”

  94. poll should have

    iv) who care’s
    v) wow i made it the end of the post

  95. rico says:

    kev – sorry for the delay, i was having my dinner,

    Fair play to you too, you are now on and free to post 🙂

  96. rico says:

    Evening peoples 🙂

    Cheers JJ 🙂

  97. rico says:

    Oi Oi JJ, I dont talk bollox 😉 😉

  98. rico says:

    where are you old buggers 😦

  99. JonJon says:

    lol…youve done well today rico

    rsd is on form

    hello kev well done

  100. you gona try for the arse barca ticket up for grabs on atvo tonight might be easier than getting them via silvers

  101. rico says:

    Thanks JJ, thanks to you its been busy, but its good as the builders have been in and i couldn’t go too far 😉 😉

    We have had some good comments too – i think most of us feel the same, great footballer but has since got caught up in the media stuff….

    Unlike Hanson, he has always been a knob 😉

  102. rico says:

    rsd is always on form 🙂

    Kev came on earlier, his comments are now up..

  103. rico says:

  181. rico says:

    Its gonna happen!!!!!! He has bought more!!

    Stan Kroenke moves to within 10 shares of Arsenal takeover bid after increasing stake
    American businessman Stan Kroenke has increased his stake in Arsenal and is now within 10 shares of the threshold that forces him to make a takeover bid.

  182. W.A.T.H says:

    I can’t believe what I just read JJ……….. Rico must been feeling sorry for waifs n strays this week I mean she now has a pole locked away ( in her bedroom more like) and been accomodating to a manc builder… Now ur a gentleman… what ever next..!

  183. rico says:

    Me JJ, bonfires?? 😉

  184. JonJon says:

    lol wath..

  185. rico says:

    😆 😆 wath

  186. JonJon says:

    of course its gonna happen rico…
    all this talk of saving money and clearing debt goes overboard cos when the baord sell up to this dude we back at square one

  187. rico says:

    not good then 😦 bollox.. but stan is better than Fat Russian isn’t he??

    wath, i have ignored the puppy reference 😉

  188. W.A.T.H says:

    They get to put more money in their pockets JJ…. if he does what glazers and bin dippers pair have done we fucked… debt secured by the asset value of the club… total bollox…!

  189. W.A.T.H says:

    No u have not rico you just mentioned the puppies 🙂 Knew u couldnt resist…!

  190. rico says:

    at least our debt is lower than most, not that that is much of a consolation…

  191. rico says:

    On that note, I think it is time to bid you two lovely gentlemen goodnight, i have to be up early for the chickens …..

  192. JonJon says:

    it dont matter who we get rico
    either will leave us skint..
    its obvious the board are holding out for the cash..once the debt is clear which some people think it will be in a couple of year anybody who wants us will have to fork out close to a billion…

    the only way they can afford that is another glazier situation…

  193. JonJon says:

    nighty rico..

    see you in the morning..

  194. W.A.T.H says:

    Nite Rico sleep tite, pls don’t wake me with the chickens….!

  195. W.A.T.H says:

    Try not to wear the pole out either Rico try get him 2 last the weekend 😉

  196. W.A.T.H says:

    Makes you wonder what the yank has planned for the club eh JJ…?

  197. rico says:

    I’ll send the cockrel your way wath 😉
    See you in the morning too JJ,

    Stay safe you two and be good!!!!!
    Nighty Night…….

  198. JonJon says:

    if he can globalise us in the USA wath, which i think he will try and do..he’ll make a mint…

    but to do that we need to sell ourselves and whats the best way to sell yourself???

    trophies and superstars…

    but we win no trophies and sell all our superstars so we caught in a bit of a catch 22…

    hopefully wenger can pull a rabbit out of that hat and bring home the double…then we tour america in pre season and bobs your mothers brother..

  199. W.A.T.H says:

    Bob is my uncle as well as it happens JJ… 🙂

    If Stan markets the club in the US properly he will mint it BUT he must invest money into the team… the yanks only like a winner so if we winning we laughing….! Invest and make money I got no problem with that BUT dont lumber the club with never eneding debt to use as a play thing to make urself money like the glazers have

  200. JonJon says:

    the problem the glaziers had is that they ploughed all their dosh into that nfl business and it went tits up..they lost a fortune and only won the superbowl once so it backfired…they were practically skint

    they purposely bought manure with the sole intention of unloading their debt…they con artists….and everyone knows it..god knows how they convinced the banks and manus board to sell..dipsticks

    gillete and hicks are con merchants too…turned out they got no money either..

    just cowboy yanks…

  201. W.A.T.H says:

    Least ours married to lady walmart 🙂

  202. JonJon says:

    yeah theres that too… lol

    i suppose the only plus side of silent stan is that hes biding his time..he isnt jumping in feet first like the others did…so hes got a real plan…not like the others

    we do have two billionaires fighting for power so there is obviously some reason why they want us…we’ll just have to see..

  203. W.A.T.H says:

    Long as its not to rape n pilage….. am off mate, chat 2moro sometime n take it easy…! Be good 🙂

  204. JonJon says:

    yeah seeya mate..
    keep us updated.. 😉

  205. @wath

    where ever there arse rsd is in it! 😉


    ……of the storm
