Do or Don’t for Dudu?

Eduardo Da Silva, fondly known by Arsenal football fans as Dudu was born in Brazil in February 1983.
Despite growing up in Rio de Janeiro, Dudu chose to represent Croatia in International Football. His international football
holds little interest for me, its Arsenal so lets stick to talking about his career with us. As so many have said recently,
we pay the players wages, not the country they play for.

The ‘stand out’ club he played for in his youth days was Dinamo Zagreb, the same club he stayed with right up until he signed for us
in 2007. Whilst at Zagreb he had a season loan 2002-03, and suffered a few niggly injuries. (that’s what probably clinched his move to us) Β πŸ˜‰

When he arrived at Arsenal he bought with him a pretty good career record – named the best player of the Croatian league in 2004 as well as in 2006 and 2007, he had been one of the key players in Dinamo Zagreb’s team that won two consecutive titles in the Croatian league as well as one title in the Croatian Cup. In 2006, he also helped Dinamo winning the Croatian Supercup, scoring two goals in their 4–1 victory over Rijeka. Funny enough he was the footballer that scored the first European goal at The Emirates – it was the only goal that night for him and his team, they got whooped 5-1 by his soon to be new team!

During the 2006-2007 season, which was to be his last at Zagreb also turned into his best season at the club, no doubt it was this that caught the eye of Arsene Wenger and his scouts. Eduardo played 18 games before the winter break, scoring 18 goals along the way. Not bad eh? By the end of the same season he had totalled 32 goals in 32 appearances, breaking a thirteen year old record previously held by Goran VlaoviΔ‡. Dudu also became the first player to a hat-rick for Zagreb against local rivals Hajduk Split – when I say local rivals, what I really mean is those three goals he scored were a bit like scoring three for us against the Spuds…

My thinking is that was the season he was being watched by us, and what a season to play like he did, he had more than convinced Arsenal he was a top striker and the following season, having had a work permit granted following an appeal, he squeezed his big bum into a pair of Arsenal Shorts, along with the shorts he was given the No9 shirt to wear. We had our fox in the box, our centre forward we craved for…. Didn’t we???

Eduardo made his Premier League debut on 19 August 2007, a 1-1 draw with Blackburn, ten days later we faced Sparta Prague in a Champions League qualifier. Dudu scored his first goal in a 3-0 win, he went on to score another in the group stages against Seville. He was fighting to gain a regular place in the first team in the league, but continued to show his goalscoring abilities in the Carling Cup, scoring a couple of goals in two consecutive matches against Sheffield United and Blackburn Rovers.

Soon is chance came, Robin van Persie picked up an injury which kept him out for a long while, Dudu then slotted in alongside a tall striker, a bit of a lazy git whose name I can’t remember!!Β  πŸ˜‰

HOWEVER…

In the February of 2008, still in his first season with us, Martin Taylor of Birminham ensured we wouldn’t get to see Eduardo in action for a long long time…. After a late crunching tackle made by Taylor, Eduardo suffered a broken left fibula and an open dislocation of his left ankle.

In my humble opinion, not only did this tackle ruin his season, to this day it seems as if may very well have ruined his career!

We all know what happenedΒ during that game,Β  that game had a massive impact on all of the team,Β  we fell away in our hunt for the title……

In January 2009, Eduardo told afc.com he was ready to return, ready for first team football, in February he made that comeback for Arsenal, scoring two goalsin a 4-0 victory over Cardiff.
But since then, each time he plays he seems to suffer a set back, he doesn’t look sharp and his shooting boots seem to be very far away from his feet. We have seen him miss easy chances to score, miss chances that the old Eduardo would have taken as easy as nicking candy from a baby.

This weekend the club takeΒ a trip back to the ground that haunted them duringΒ the 2007/08Β season when we were looking so strong. It is also the first time that Eduardo returns to face a side that nearly ended his career.

We are up against a side who’s own form has taken a dip, they sit 9th in the table right now so the game won’t be a walk over. This game, like the same fixture in 2008 will have a big say in our season, win it and we will build the momentum, lose and it could all be over. The latter though I don’t expect to happen, even without our two first choice CH’s, I think we will win comfortably.

So, you are Arsene Wenger – Do you start Eduardo or Don’t you????

I am unsure what I would do, but I would involve him in the game at some stage,Β it mayΒ just maybeΒ that on Saturday, Eduardo Da Silva can finallyΒ bury the ghosts that seem to be currently haunting his football career….

    Morning all

  2. bob says:

    Here’s what McLeish is saying….

    β€œYou have to tackle and you must challenge but sometimes we can be a bit soft actually. We could be tougher. The one thing to make sure is that we don’t leave spaces because Arsenal will exploit that.”

    Once again a lesser teams manager urgers his team to be strong in the challenge against Arsenal. Arseholes all of them.

  3. rico says:

    Morning bob, welcome to Avenell Road

    Its about time managers kept their mouths shut about tactics against us, same old crap, the ref today better be on the ball!!

  4. Erick says:

    Mornin all

  5. rico says:

    Morning Erick, did you see the email i sent you, it could be in your spam πŸ˜‰

  6. W.A.T.H says:

    Mcleish is a prized prick….!…. Mornin all how’s ya cock’s rico, hope not 2 early this morning..?

  7. rico says:

    Another big one obviously lets hit six its been a while πŸ˜‰

  10. rico says:

    Little bit of good news…

    Giles Sunu has signed a contract extension…

    I hope Merida follows suit..

  11. JonJon says:

    morning rico..

    the problem isnt the managers or the players i dont think…

    its the referees…if refs would give us the same protection as they do manutd teams would think twice about smashing us…ive always said ronaldo wuldnt have become the player he was if he played for arsenal cos he’d of either got his leg broken or he would have left..like reyes did..

    you do wat you can get away with and sometimes some teams have got away with loads against us..the refs let them do it…

    i think the tide is turning though since the rambo injury…weve won more penalties in the last few weeks than wat we have all season..

  12. rico says:

    McLeish has said he hopes the ref is strong…..

    What a knob!!

  13. W.A.T.H says:

    Rico that’s old news that was last night when u ran off to play with ur “pole” πŸ˜‰

    AW seems to think WG not a problem either…! Merida has to make a decision and entirely up to him, I think will show his character if he chooses to stay or go and if it’s go then bye close the door on the way out….!

  14. W.A.T.H says:

    If the ref strong Mcleish won’t have any players left on the park the fu**in dick head…!. Mornin brother JJ πŸ™‚

  15. Erick says:

    I will check it out Rico its been a while since have gone through my mail Morning WATH

  16. rico says:

    Morning JJ, the twosome is now complete..

    Is it Webb today?? I hope not, he is so bias towards the mancs he will give us nowt!

    We were lucky Pires stayed JJ, he was targeted too in his first season. Hope you are right about the tide turning, its about bloody time..

  17. rico says:

    I must keep up wath πŸ˜‰

  18. W.A.T.H says:

    I saw clattenburg mentioned Rico…??????????? Another pratt…!

  19. might be a stupid question

    anyone any good with sopcast webplayer and html script?

  20. W.A.T.H says:

    Ur right Rico… it’s fuckin webb…………… Bollox………………..

  21. JonJon says:

    webb couldnt run a piss up in a brewery…

    morning Wath.. πŸ˜‰

    hi erick

  22. rico says:

    Hope its not him either, in fact all the ref’s are pretty poor, bring back Graham ‘Poll’ πŸ˜‰

  23. K-TR7 says:

    Morning.rico i never got your e-mail.howard webb is todays ref so i hope he stamps his authority on the game early.i think both rosicky and theo will start,with AA and nasri on the bench.i also see silvestre starting since aw has so much belief in his players.AW wouldn’t want our mf to be overun by ferguson and co so song will play.

  24. rico says:

    Bollox, Webb thinks he at work when reffin, lets the mancs and dippers off, just like in the real world….

  25. JonJon says:

    id start dudu today..

    and let him smash a hattrick against these pricks..

  26. rico says:

    Morning KTR7, I will send you another…

  27. rico says:

    hope you voted JJ πŸ˜‰

  28. W.A.T.H says:

    Webba and a dark alley would be a nice idea…..! hmmmmm…!

  29. JonJon says:

    morning ktr7

    i voted rico…

  30. JonJon says:

    webb a dark alley razor blades and lemon juice

  31. JonJon says:

    who mancs n chavs got?

  32. W.A.T.H says:

    JJ………….. that’s a bit spiteful….!! I had something far worse in mind though….! πŸ™‚ I’ll just go make some tea and keep quiet….!

  33. W.A.T.H says:

    Chav’s home to Villa, Mancs away to Bolton…!

  34. rico says:

    I reckon the chavs will draw or lose, mancs v bolton, depends on whether shrek rests his leg πŸ˜‰

    KTR7, i have sent another

  35. rico says:

    morning rsd, didn’t see you earlier, i have no idea what you are asking about – no i guess it will be a no from me πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

  36. K-TR7 says:

    Morning jj. Brum play with 4-4-2.if mcleash doesn’t change it we can overrun them in mf.they say mancs,chavs,northern chavs…have all dropped points there but they don’t know we are nothing like them;we are more hungrier this year,we haven’t lost to everton/blackburn/bolton in four years but the pundits still say we don’t like it up north.most people think it will be a tight game but my gut feeling is…

  37. JonJon says:

    theres too potentail draws there…

    villa use the wings and have alot of pace and strength up front so the chavs will struggle to get control at the back

    and if rooney dont play today like the rumours suggest the mancs are fucked…there formation all depends on him…

    can see jack scoring today too…

    come on

  38. rico says:

    KTR7, I am confident we will win, its a good game to play pre barca because of the last match at St Andrews. The focus will on this game and getting revenge for Dudu – The best revenge will be to thrash them off the park…

  39. rico says:

    JJ, i reckon shrek will sit it out, although i hope he plays and does further damage…

  40. chris says:

    Just wanted to say the bloke needs the time he needs.

    Diaby, Song, Eboue and hopefully next year Denilson, Theo Vela or some of them will show the benefits of giving people time to develop and maybe Fabianski in about 3-4 years time, who knows?

    Eduardo is a different case but there are real positives to the club of showing loyalty to players.

  41. morning rico

    thought it would be a stupid q on here

    im getting closer tho
    but still not disco

    live blog an inscreen live steam on terrace
    might just have to be justin and not sopcast tho but am trying
    will see you guys pregame
    i have 2 year olds birthday to go to it gona be wild drug, sex and sausage rolls…

  42. JonJon says:

    hi rsd cant help you mate sorry

    brums gameplan will be obvious ktr7..the first 30mins will be crucial…if we get an early goal we’ll make brum play our game

  43. JonJon says:

    lol

  44. JonJon says:

    πŸ˜‰

  45. rico says:

    Morning chris, its clear Dudu needs time, but today is a big day for him, if he plays and gets through, ghosts could be buried and he may just move on and get back to how he used to be…

    This game is about him mentally imho (cant spell psychologically) πŸ˜‰

  46. Suhail.TV says:

    Follow the old formation for this game. Dudu and Nick up front will works as in the carling cup 07 with diaby on CM.

  47. JonJon says:

    yeah dudu needs abit more time..

    if we can get him firin again we have our finisher up front..save us 30 mil…

  48. rico says:

    JJ, are you around for a couple of hours??

  49. JonJon says:

    on and off rico..why u need to dissapear??

  50. rico says:

    Welcome Suhail, i like the little and large, nik can knock it down and Dudu grab a few, that would be karma…

  51. rico says:

    Need to go shopping JJ 😦

  52. JonJon says:

    haha..i’ll keep an eye out

  53. top gunner says:

    we need to beat brum with or without protection if we are to win the league.mclish and fat sam are red noses puppies so expect them two teams try to roughen us up.

  54. K-TR7 says:

    Dudu’s brain is as razor sharp it was before…his touches and flicks around the box are second to none,he is making all the right decisions but he lacks in goalscoring.fans forget he was our main provider of goals in dec period.AW said the surgery dudu had at the end of last season may have affected his pace and that it would take a long time to get it back.AW has also said he is showing all the right signs in training,even theo said he can do outrageous things in training,we saw the goal he scored vs burnley in fa cup.most fans don’t have PATIENCE which Aw has.if you don’t believe in eddy believe in AW since he spends the whole day in training with him.i have a sneaky feeling he will be crucial vs barca but more on that later.Eduardo!Eduardo!Arsenal’s number nine!

  55. Suhail.TV says:

    No more time probably for dudu. Just up to the end of season, I feel

  56. JonJon says:

    dudu just needs to score a few..he looks like hes holding back wen he shoots cos defenders are flying in on him and its only natural hes got one eye on them…
    hes not fully focused hes always looking to get out of the way…a good run of games and a few goals and confidence will build

  57. JonJon says:

    morning top gunner..

    we’ll beat brum..there form has been dodgy recently..
    confidence is high in ours

  58. JonJon says:

    suhail i think he needs longer…

    hes been in and out with niggles since hes returned so its unfair to suggest he hasnt got it anymore..

    lets hope he has a proper pre season this summer and a good few months being fully fit

  59. W.A.T.H says:

    Hope rico brings us lots of bacon sarnies JJ am a bit peckish….!

  60. Suhail.TV says:

    Hi, jon jon… but we got astonvilla in similar way. Any way Iam optimistic.

  61. JonJon says:

    lol wath..

  62. JonJon says:

    suhail if eddie plays today he’ll score

    this was the game that almost ruined his career…this will be the game he banishes the demons and puts his career back on track

  63. rico says:

    πŸ˜† WATH – thanks JJ, catch you all soon

  64. W.A.T.H says:

    Off out for a bit catch ya lata…..!

  65. Suhail.TV says:

    As brmngm they were also struggling at that time. But we failed to beat AV

  66. Suhail.TV says:

    Iam also hoping a salvation for eduardo. He will score.

  67. JonJon says:

    villa are a better team than brum and we werent on fire then..our form has been good..

    the team has good balance with nikki back and even without gallas and tv i feel we have enough…

    brum have been good this season but their starting to falter now

    it wont be easy but we’ll do it

  68. JonJon says:

    ctch ya lata wath

  69. Suhail.TV says:

    laters

  73. craig says:

    eduardo will get bak to where he was, its jus gonna take a bit of time, pysically he’s bak, but mentally maybe not, he jus needs a goal or 2 for confidence and he’ll be on his way, come u gooners, Ps av u all noticed that mcleish is the double of goldmember from austin powers, ha ha funny as fuck,

  74. JonJon says:

  85. rico says:

    Oh and a letter box πŸ˜‰

  86. rico says:

    πŸ˜† wath, i wouldn’t buy bacon let alone cook it πŸ˜‰

  87. K-TR7 says:

    I’ve received your mail rico,i’ll get back to you hopefully with good news.

  88. rico says:

    jj – you by chance referring to the paddy is pedestrian said by tommo? thsts why i am gld he never came home…

  89. W.A.T.H says:

    Oink Oink………… Any bloody excuse to let me starve Rico…. Am so neglected…! Must be the manc rico, he didnt bother with letterbox cos noone likes him so he dont get any mail…!

  90. rico says:

    that is sounding great news ktr7 πŸ™‚

  91. JonJon says:

    yes rico…

    i remember the weeks of debate we all had months ago and a few of us didnt want him back..not as a 1st teamer anyway..

    wat did we say?? his legs are shot..he wont handle the pl now..

    and citeh are forking out 150k a week to find that out

    i only wanted him back for dressing room but looks like wenger got it spot on with sol

  92. JonJon says:

    merse just cracked me up…

    pmsl that was histerical

  93. rico says:

    πŸ˜† wath

    Rather sol than paddy any day jj…

  94. W.A.T.H says:

    Make you right there Rico and who would of said 3 months ago they take Sol over PV…. 99% would of gone for PV…!

  95. afternoon anynews today?

  96. W.A.T.H says:

    Only that Rico ain’t fed me RSD….! πŸ™‚ Otherwise very quiet..!

  97. rico says:

    wath, have to say, i never wanted paddy this season, not being smart, its just the truth, the day pires (i think) robbed him of the ball when he was at Juve, he was finished in my book πŸ˜‰

  98. rico says:

    Don’t believe him rsd, he is in a cheeky mood again πŸ˜‰

  99. rico says:

    Tommo is slating Webb, we are in doo doo if he isn’t up to scratch later – he loves the mancs and will do anything to help them out…

  100. W.A.T.H says:

    Webb is a smart arse arrogant pig… AND he hates us… wanker has never given us a decent decision ever….!.

    Me cheeky… As if…! Ur right PV was finished when Bobby tackled him in that Juve game…! Also AW saw exactly what Sol was all about in training 4 2 months…! He knew exactly what he was getting…!

  101. rico says:

    If Sunderland go down, anyone reckon we should go in for Craig Gordon??

  102. JonJon says:

    drogba doesnt start against villa

  103. rico says:

    wath – the other thing about AW is he knows when to let players go – forget the ones that shaft him, but Edu, Reyes, Freddie, Paddy, Petit, Overmars….. they all had their best days with us and been pretty average since they left. I know we all had a huge soft spot for Pires, but would he have really been able to keep up with the pace in the PL?

    Henry i put in a different bracket, i like to think it was his personal life which made him move… He is the one player, oh and Sir Bergkamp, who has only ever said great things about us….

  104. rico says:

    Come on the Villa – he must be injured, its not like they have a CL game to worry about JJ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

  105. JonJon says:

    rico..

    no i wouldnt take gordon..hes no better than wat we have..just looks it cos he gets peppered with shots all the time..

    and im going to pick apart your list of players.. πŸ˜‰
    edu we should have kept..he was coming of age but we lost him the same way we lost flamini..he was better than gilbero
    reyes was a disaster, he had no choice to let him go..

    but your pretty much spot on with the rest..got some good money for overmars too

    although i though we held on to frddie for too long..

  106. rico says:

    Edu though JJ suffered a leg injury and was finished…. Don’t get me wrong, I thought he was awesome..

  107. JonJon says:

    merse n charlie getting stuck in

    we win this we favs..

  108. rico says:

    freddie went from hero to zero in one season, the same season we kept him, agree with you there jj and when he left, he knocked us… twit, he should have been grateful

    no nasri, aa, eboue!!!!

  109. W.A.T.H says:

    I have to agree with my brother JJ…. Edu we def let go far to early… big cock up that one…! The rest on ur list pretty much spot on Rico…! ur not bad 4 a girl πŸ˜›

    Oh, and NO don’t want Gordon…! He’s scottish 4 starters….!

  110. W.A.T.H says:

    Edu did that AFTER he left us tho Rico….. SO that was pure luck…!

  112. rico says:

    What did Edu do after he left then you two boys πŸ™‚

  113. JonJon says:

    yeah he did his leg when he played for valencia though..

    he was brilliant in his last two seasons..we just wouldnt giv him the contract..that goal v celta was wicked

    ppl give gilberto too much credit..he was a good player but he wasnt brilliant…the edu vieira partnership was much better

  114. rico says:

    disagree wath, if his knee was going to give in, it would do it no matter where he played, he obviously had a weakness otherwise he would have recovered πŸ˜‰

    I did after I wrecked mine playing footie πŸ™‚

  115. W.A.T.H says:

    Ur basing ur theory on doing shit after he left Rico… BUT he got injured just after he left and never been the same since BUT if we had kept him he was the dogs testicles….! Great player…!

  116. JonJon says:

    thats a risky team

  117. W.A.T.H says:

    U dont have a weak knee to do a cruciate…!! thats a foul !! :P:P:P

  118. JonJon says:

    he broke his leg didnt he playing for valencia in pre season or something like that…

  119. W.A.T.H says:

    Ok will come chat at half time am off 2 watch the match πŸ™‚

    Lata…. after topping my drink up of course….!

  120. rico says:

    Very risky JJ, but we will slaughter them, its going to be Theo’s day πŸ™‚

    Nah wath, i am a lady i am just always right, JJ taught me that πŸ˜‰

  121. W.A.T.H says:

    U sound just like Howard Webb Rico, he looks in the miror every day and growls… “I am always right…!!”

    Well well well webb the C**t might as well put a blue shirt on or his manc shirt or what ever cos he is a fuckin joke…! We are loosing tackles galore no winning the midfield and now Cesc injured as well. Theo is doing nuffin its far 2 hard 4 him Ridgewell kicks him and Theo vanishes…!

  137. W.A.T.H says:

    The pitch is also a joke more like a cabbage patch…! We need to pull finger cos that first 45 was pretty crap…!

  138. Erick says:

    We need to raise the game 😦 Pensioner 2 -Villa 1

  139. rico says:

    doesn’t sound good wath – i thought theo might have a good game today, but……

  140. JonJon says:

    wat do u expect wath

    songs in defence and denilson left to anchor the midfeild and win the battles

    he couldnt win the battle against a subbuteo team

  141. rico says:

    webb!!!! hate the twurp…

  142. JonJon says:

    we’ll pull it together..

    but it hasnt helped wenger making these changes…go with strongest team…fuck barca we’ll deal with them when time comes

  143. rico says:

    thats my theory jj, face each game with the strongest eleven, winning breeds winning, lose this and we know what happens next…

  144. rico says:

    bollox 3-1 chavs..

  145. JonJon says:

    we need to wake up now..

    chelsea are 3-1

    hopefully brum gave us all they got n start to tire..

    i said we could get away with a draw but it aint here..we need this one

  146. JonJon says:

    get nasri and AA on now..

    denilson and theo off

  147. rico says:

    chav pen, no way back for villa, can’t believe it 4-1

  148. rico says:

    Dudu is warming up…..

  149. rico says:

    we could do with villa getting a couple of goals, and us getting a few…. i don’t feel good about this…

  150. rico says:

    chavs 5-1!!!!!!!!!!!!

  151. rico says:

    Nasri and AA on, Rosicky and Theo off

  152. rico says:

    Re Eduardo

    52% – said yes

    48% – said no

    I wonder now if he will actually get on the pitch….

  153. rico says:

    F*****G Webb!! Le Tiss says Diaby just scored a good goal

  154. rico says:

    wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    nasri

  155. JonJon says:

    naaaassssssssssssrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiii

  156. rico says:

    chavs now 6-1!!!!

  157. JonJon says:

    dont worry bwt them rico..

    lets get our three points

  158. rico says:

    i’m not bovvered bout them jj, just shocked villa have crumbled so easily, we need a second…

  159. rico says:

    zola will be sacked this weekend i think 😦

  160. yes lesbo aka sami 0-1
    sorry guys am working

  161. JonJon says:

    1 goal will do it…just dont let them score..

    1 nil to the arsenal is three points

  162. rico says:

    kevin bloody phillips…… just after a nasri chance..

  163. rico says:

    i’m gutted, just gutted!!!!!!!!

  164. JonJon says:

    i only left room for a piss and came back…

    bollox..

    thats it i think..

  165. rico says:

    webb fuck up again too, diaby scored a legal goal, we are f-in doomed with these crap ref’s….

  166. rico says:

    me too jj, mancs and chavs won’t open the door again… im numb!!

  167. JonJon says:

    wat was their goal like

  168. JonJon says:

    we could afford to drop points cos i still think the mancs and chavs will but they needed to drop em 1st
    momentum needs to stay with us
    bolton gotta win now

  169. JonJon says:

    if it was a mistake i’ll go fucking mad..

  170. JonJon says:

    need mancs to lose tonight and beat chelsea next week..

  171. JonJon says:

    no rooney for bolton..

    if the mancs dont win its a point gained today…

    we’ll be back in it next week..

    but fuck……….

  172. rico says:

    nah it wasnt a mistake i dont think, it was a rebound on to phillips heasd and it looped over big al, according to Le Tiss

  173. rico says:

    he must be crocked jj, good!!

    i’m off to drill a few holes in bricks, i will think it’s rooneys head as i go…..

    yes jj, fuck indeed!!

  174. rico says:

    no rio either for the mancs….

  175. W.A.T.H says:

    Well I am noy allowed to say teh “C” word on here but that fuckin useless “C” spanish waiter goalie of ours has cost us the league what a fuckin div…. I am livid… I can’t even talk I just wanna smash his face in… Wait til you see the goal he let in……… Off for a very cold shower and to try calm down…!

  176. Erick says:

    😦 😦 😦 😦

  177. Erick says:

    Tricky tricky but we still in it the Manc must loose or draw but Pensioner still play dippers and Manc but the Ref today was the 12th man without a lie

  178. Tony says:

    Guys – season ticket holder living in Abu Dhabi and seen the match on TV. Almunia totally at fault – he should have caught it but tried to palm it over the bar and only succeeded only to push it into the net. Slow first half but better in the second when Arshavin and Nasri came on.

  179. rico says:

    so it was keeper error, Tiss said it was a fluke rebound, that makes it even f-in worse!!!

  180. W.A.T.H says:

    Tiss been on the piss if he reckons that aint the waiters fault….! total bollox…! hardly like it’s the first time is it…..!

  181. rico says:

    no wath, its all so very often, one penalty save last weekend does not change my opinion on him….

  182. rico says:

    I’m off to get some dinner, peed off about today, but i aint hearing no fat lady singing just yet…. not just yet!!

  183. Erick says:

    Rico got your e-mail πŸ™‚

  184. will have to wait till next saturday
    no matter

  185. JonJon says:

    i really cant be arsed tonight now..

    wenger had an eye on barca and it went to shit..

  186. of course he did
    but you cant win them all
    and this was one of our hardest games
    point gained
    cheer up mate lets watch bayern beat utd then loads of injuries on sat morning

  187. but how shit were we today

  188. rico says:

    I’m with Jj rsd, AW was stupid today and worried more about Barca – how many times do we say start with the best eleven, put the game to bed then give players a rest – he mucked up in my opinion…

  189. rico says:

    sorry for the delay tony, hope you pop back onto Avenell Road…

  190. rico says:

    Erick, glad you found the email πŸ™‚

  191. rico says:

    On that note, I’m done in…. peed off, darn right miserable and to top it all, the mancs won 4-0…..

    crap day, in more ways than one….

    see you all tomorrow, stay safe, nighty night…

  192. rico says:

    oh dear oh dear oh dear, just seen the brum goal, one offside and a very very dreadful piece of goal keeping…

    chesney, i feel the shirt will soon be yours young man……

  193. W.A.T.H says:

    Now u see what I mean Rico……….

    Nuff said….! totally fu**ed off……….!

  194. JonJon says:

    is anyone watching your on SS??

    perry groves talks so much sense…one of the best ex arsenal pundits..cant fault anything he says…

  195. rico says:

    i do wath, i’m peed off too, i feel its really out of our hands now, i say sell Almunia and Fabianski and buy a proper keeper, but we know he wont!

    surely AW knows that idiot has just cost us… yet again…

    def off now, clocks go forward tonight so that means i’m up at 6am 😦 😦

  196. JonJon says:

    im really pissed off but ive said we’ll win the league all season and im sticking by it..

    even though my head says stop talking shit

  197. rico says:

    jj, i am having to watch something else… otherwise i dont get to see the footie 😦 😦

  198. W.A.T.H says:

    JJ………….. Stop talking utter shit….! πŸ˜›

    If we had won today it was real….! Now it’s a fuck up…! The waiter has cost us I reckon 12 points this year…! If I start again gonna need another cold shower and some chill pills………

    hums to himself and counts to ten billion…..

  199. we win as a team we lose as a team
    if you gona blame almunia you have to blame clichy for not blocking the cross or song for not coming out fast enough for the knock down.

  200. W.A.T.H says:

    Hmmmmmmmm this could take a while in the twenties only done fingers n toes……….

  201. W.A.T.H says:

    RSD……….. most important man in the team is the goalie and he is SHIT…!

  202. JonJon says:

    wath i was watching the game on a fucked up stream as it was and it got to the 90th and i thought id go for a piss as we’d got the points…

    i came back and seen it was one all…

    lets just say im calm now but im guna be about 500 quid out of pocket tomorrow when ive replaced everything ive smashed… πŸ˜‰

  203. most important is that you only playing v 11 and we played v 12

  204. was that inesta injured or was he just subbed?

  205. W.A.T.H says:

    Playin 12 dont help but also don’t help when ur 10 either….!

    MY phone is in 1000 bits after I bounced it of fthe wall JJ…. was just about to boot the couch when thought better of it….! Was very close though..!

  206. oh good messi just took a nasty one lol

  207. webb fucker today
    song carded for first tackle
    oh shit i could do a whole post he was just shite

  208. apparently according too the away they sang fergie’s rent boy and he just turned and smiled at them

  209. W.A.T.H says:

    I heard the fans singing “fergies rent boy” and not surprised he just smiled he’s a smug arrogant c**t..! AND yet again he has fuckin stitched us up…!

  210. zlatan scores again

  211. JonJon says:

    weve been saying for a while now almunias not good enough..

    theirs too many passengers in this team but we get by cos of the individual brillance of certain players every game..

    over the course of the season the passengers are bound to have the odd good game but generally speaking its fuck up after fuck up…and it costs us points every time..

  212. JonJon says:

    after last years season im on my 5th laptop…and this has a cracked screen πŸ˜‰

    webbs a banned word…sideways, backways, everyday..

    a big sweaty stinky pissy banned word..

  213. W.A.T.H says:

    I’m quite good with the monitor JJ… I tend to walk off and smash things… not done a screen………. yet… TV been very very close a few times πŸ™‚ Soon as I saw it was him knew we were in shit…!

  214. JonJon says:

    perry groves even said hes made some massive errors in the top games recently…

    its no coincidence though its all in favor of one team…in everygame he makes fuckups the same team benefits..even if they aint playing..

    one day summats guna come out about that prick…

  215. i knew we were in shit when theo name was on team sheet for an away match but i guess he had to rest aa and nasri.

  216. W.A.T.H says:

    U just know he had his “I love Man U” t’shirt on under that ref’s top…!

  217. defo he was wearing a green shirt he prob had yellow pants on.

  218. JonJon says:

    who was it who said he was seen throwing his shirt into the stretford end last week after pool game..

    that was funny…

    yeah rsd

    the team sheet suprised me especially with theo and denilson

  219. W.A.T.H says:

    Theo was piss poor far to hard for him… the boy beeds to grow some nuts and get stuck in…! Doesn’t..!

  220. was a home team
    shame dudu didn’t play

    apparently dudu went and thanked the medical staff during the warm up

  221. lot of people played trying not to get injured today

  222. JonJon says:

    you could tell..

    they were pulling out of everything, but with webb in charge who wouldnt..either get sent off or taken off on stretcher

  223. W.A.T.H says:

    Cheers you 2, am off out….! Be good and no kicking the cat JJ……….

  224. who’s on report duty for tomorrow?

  225. JonJon says:

    cheers WATH

    prob me rsd..

  226. Why dosent wenger tell the fa he don’t want webb reffing our games like pullis has done with Deane or whoever it is or maybe he’ll be a bit more subtle and say that he should only ref utd games v utd.

  227. can i bother to stay up for motd

  228. look forward to tick the made it to the end box on the poll jj πŸ˜‰

  229. JonJon says:
