Mancs to win and lose in the same day….

That’s my prediction today, Red Nose Mancs win and the money bags Mancs to lose!! If that happens, by my maths we are definately in the Champions League next season… If however I have had yet another ‘grey’ moment, I am sure someone will put me right ๐Ÿ˜‰


Sagna Campbell Silvestre Clichy
Nasri Eastmond Diaby
Walcott Rosicky Bendtner


Onuoha Toure Kompany Bridge
Johnson D Jong Barry Bellamy
Lardy Tevez

Thats how both teams lined up in our fixtures last weekend. We both lost, but the opposition and the way we lost was quite different. Citeh were kept out by a few great Van de Sar saves and a very late lucky goal by Paul Scholes. We just chilled for ten minutes and watched a Wigan side romp all over us and over take a 2-0 lead.

Disgraceful, utterly disgraceful and I hope Wenger has kicked the backside of every player who took part in last weekends fixture, except Sol and Clichy, I thought they were the only two who stayed focussed from start to finish.

I think we can expect two changes tomorrow – Song in for either Silvestre or Eastmond, Robin van Persie in for Rosicky or Walcott.

Assuming Citeh are unchanged….

Personally, I would bring Robin in instead of Diaby, play Eboue instead of Silvestre and leave Song and Eastmond in the centre of midfield – this is how I would line them up though…

Eboue Sagna Sol Clichy
Nasri Eastmond Song Rosicky
Nik van Persie

I think that side and that line up could beat Man City. If we see a lazy Diaby, an old has been in Silvestre or another lacklustre performance by Arsenal we will get battered. And I mean battered.

Sol can deal with Lardy, trust me, he won’t need sitting down and reminded of what he task is tonight, he will be up to prove his worth and show all the fans just how much he loves them.

Song and Eastmond together can boss the midfield, they are both calm and just go about their game in a very similar fashion and Eastmond should relish playing alongside a player who he admires so much and wants to emulate..

Van Persie and Nik, well isn’t that combination how our season started? Isn’t that the combination that saw us score goals for fun back in September?

Well if Arsene Wenger has the balls to play them together today, we could see a few goals and at the right end of the pitch…

Clichy can win the Bellamy battle, he has got so much better the last few weeks and Eboue will piss off Tevez, big time!!

I’m up for this game, I’m optimistic about this game, but only if we see Wenger pick the right eleven from the start.

Theo and Vela can wait in the wings for this game and come on for fun at the end…..

The final point though and the biggest IF is, IF Fabianski can put in a display to justify Wenger saying he will be a top keeper then we will be ok, but if he starts playing basketball early on, we are doomed…..

Just quickly on the transfer speculation – a snippet from!!

You can forget all the transfer speculation you might have read this week โ€“ because itโ€™s โ€œall wrongโ€.

That was Arsรจne Wengerโ€™s blunt assessment of the latest round of stories linking Arsenal with any number of summer signings.

Transfer rumours have gathered pace since last weekendโ€™s defeat at Wigan effectively ended Arsenalโ€™s title bid and, inevitably, reporters wanted Wenger to shed light on the speculation at his pre-match press conference.

They didnโ€™t get far. Goalkeeper Joe Hart was the first and only name to crop up before Wenger snuffed out any further probing.

โ€œWe are at the moment not on the transfer market,โ€ he insisted.

โ€œWhat is important is that we focus on the challenge we have in front of us and finish well in our final three games.

โ€œI read some transfer rumours in the newspapers and they are all wrong. All of them. So you do not even need to ask me one name โ€“ they are all wrong.โ€

Doesn’t exactly fill you with confidence, or does it?? You just never know with Arsene do you…..

Have a great day all, three points in the bag ๐Ÿ™‚

    @rico did you know each time we lost two games in a row this season we kept a cleansheet in the following game at home:mancs&city-we beat wigan,sunderland&chavs-won vs stoke 2 nil,mancs&chavs-beat lpool 1nil at home…long may it continue!

  5. rico says:

    i didn’t know that, i’m up for a 3-1 home win today and red nose to hammer harry’s lot…

  6. Mark c says:

    You can’t believe what wenger says about transfers.

    He said last week with chamak that he could be one of the playerS that we have agreed terms with.

    This week he said all transfer talk was wrong. That must include chamak
    coming then.

    Do me a favour word of advice say nothing.

    No comment – it might sound boring but at least he stays constant.

    Very worried about the team today.

  7. rico says:

    Hi Mark…

    Agree, say nothing then he doesn’t set himself up for the fall – usually though he say we are in the market and he buys no-one, maybe this time he is but refuses to let the cat out the bag, you know the chavs and citeh will poach any player that arsene looks at…

  8. rico says:

    Soccer AM has the Gooner fans on this morning…

  9. JonJon says:


    citeh are going to thump us today..

    and ive just howled with laughter…the arsenal boys are on soccer AM and theyve just shown a clip of the 7000th goal in the SPL and it was a goalkeeper cockup…a big embarrasing one

    and the lads started chantin manuel almunia to the tune of weve got cesc fabregas..well funny

    probably be labelled as naughty fans…

  10. JonJon says:

    spooky rico

  11. rico says:

    Just seen that too JJ, Mornin to you…

    And The Prof is a gooner too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hows things…?

  12. rico says:

    JJ, spooky the fans are on today, we are going to win…

    Dublin has always been a fav of mine to, he loves Henry

  13. Mark c says:

    I believe we have signed a few players already.

    a keeper

    all signed all with us on 1st July.

  14. rico says:

    Thats some high hopes Mark ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. JonJon says:

    things are better thanks but its one step forward and 2 back..

    citeh will bet us cos we dont have the players to cope with tevez ade and bellamy

    too much pace and workrate..

    citeh normally hit 3 and 4 past us with our best defence..could be the biggest home defeat yet at emirates

  16. rico says:

    OOPS Stevie Me me me meeeeeeeeeee is in doo doo ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard could be waking up Sunday morning with his face all over the Sunday papers for the wrong reason.

    According to some online sources and social networking sites like facebook, rumor is spreading like wildfire reporting that Steven Gerrard is facing accusations he got a 16-year-old Liverpool girl pregnant.

    There are also rumors circulating that Gerrard’s wife Alex Curran has been having an affair with a Derby County player.

    Reports are suggesting the News of the World are planning to break the story on Sunday.

  17. K-TR7 says:

    @jj i bet you the players will surpass all our expectations…

  18. rico says:

    ๐Ÿ˜ฆ JJ, but glad getting better, albeit very slowly…

    I don’t know why JJ, I just have this feeling about today, but its totally opposite to yours ๐Ÿ˜‰

  19. rico says:

    KTR7, that shouldn’t be too hard at the moment…

  20. silent stan says:

    i believe we will lose today, ade and tevez v sylvestre. OMG.
    fed up with wnenger on his high horse. lets us down repeatedly with lies about transfers and has audacity to lecture fans on chants re ade.

    and why oh why would we not start with VP. whats to lose

  21. Mark c says:


    that list is the minimum of players we need.

    As mentioned elsewhere priority should be made to the players that we allow to leave just as much as the players that come in

    getting rid of the dross will make the squad much leaner. New rules come in around home grown players for the coming season.

  22. rico says:

    Mark, I know its what we need,but what we get will probably be very very different..

    re the home grown, we will be fine, clichy, robin, ramsey, theo, cesc, JET, Lansbury, Eastmond, Chesney….. we got loads ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. rico says:

    At least four need to go, denilson, diaby and the two keepers… add to that a few in the youth that will never make it..

  24. rico says:

    Morning SS, nah, we are going to win – rvp and song have to start if fit and not come from the bench

  25. ndaba says:

    guys pliz enlighten me.I am worried and confused by the perfomance of our team and really want to know this: is it possible for players in our team to take brides from e.g bookies to throw 2 nil down,how many people would have bet on Wigan coming back to win the can someone start an investigation. i know our boys are paid peanuts compared to other big teams,a couple of them maybe tempted to earn extra on the side. food for thought really.

  26. rico says:

    0-0 at Old Trafford, crap game, berbytoff is rubbish as is bentley – on this performance i can’t understand how we have beaten by either side this season ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  27. rico says:

    one half of the required results has taken place, now bring on the blue half of the shitty citty!!

  28. rico says:

    Songs in and Robin is Skippy…. HOOOOOrah ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi rsd

  29. K-TR7 says:

    Ade on the bench…

  30. what it 6 in a row for sol wow

  31. agirlagunner says:

    Yay! Kick-off at last. I can’t believe it’s been almost six months since RvP played at the Emirates.

  32. agirlagunner says:

    Yay! Kick-off at last. I canโ€™t believe itโ€™s been almost six months since RvP played at the Emirates.

  33. rico says:

    hi agag – wonderful to see him back eh…

  34. agirlagunner says:

    Hi, rsd. Yep. Game’s not on tv.

  36. all look pretty good

  37. why does mancini wear that f in scarf its almost may

  38. rico says:

    its on espn here guys….

    through my eyes agag, he always looks bright and sharp ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

  39. rico says:

    decor rsd, he looks silly though!

  40. agirlagunner says:

    He’s on the bench. He claimed the Arsenal player of the month award.

  41. would be on tv in se but im cheap ***

  42. rico says:

    Did you see an article in the Daily Mail about Nikki, its a nice one, shout if you want the link agag

  43. have all the links if any ones interested

  44. agirlagunner says:

    Two cable subsriptions and no arsenal. ESPN/Star show every other meaningless games but not the one I want. Ugh.

  45. agirlagunner says:

    Bendtner is endlessly confident. He makes me laugh.

    I have a link guys. Thanks.

  46. dont you hate itie managers really know how to ruin a game of football

  47. rico says:

    come on you reds…..

  48. rico says:

    rsd, sure do and that was ON SIDE!!!

  49. rico says:

    is theo being played up top, if so, wtf is he always out on the wing, same as nik always is….

  50. rico says:

    citeh are crap right now, we need to get two goals, trust me, they will wake up second half and thats when we sleep!!!

  51. are just waiting to get the break on ius

  52. agirlagunner says:

    If the idea is for Walcott to capitalize on the tiring legs of the citeh players, then he should be a sub. I’d rather I’m-the-best Bendtner right now.

  53. rico says:

    mike dean is a knob and we should have nik and robin up top, theo is still playing on the wing and we have nothing in the middle….

    the only thing diaby is doing is annoying paddy!!

  54. rico says:

    rvp and nik should have started agag … when he comes on i hope he leaves theo on, take off diaby and go for it ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. agirlagunner says:

    Our final ball is disappointing again. Sigh.

  56. so now goal then missed the last 5 kids drama splinter

  57. rico says:

    rsd, what ????

    we need nik on now…

  58. agirlagunner says:

    Haha on the Paddy diaby comment. These days, who doesn’t Diaby annoy?

    We need just that little bit more. Come on you reds!

  59. Suhail.TV says:

    Hello every one .. The game looks creepy.!

  60. what has adebyewhore done to his hair?

  61. agirlagunner says:

    STV, I was about to say the same thing myself. What an odd game.

  62. rico says:

    we are rubbish!!

  63. rico says:

    hi stv, its just rubbish, how we are third right now i will never know ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  64. Suhail.TV says:

    Rico it was certainly not like this before the stoke fa game..

  65. rico says:

    in fact, i’m off to feed my animals, they were to wait but its not like this game keeps me….

    and now its about to get worse, the only time the fans can be heard is to boo Lardy… if only they could be so loud in support of their own…

  66. agirlagunner says:

    Thankfully, rico citeh is rubbish too. I say we bring on Nik. What is the crowd shouting against Adebayor?

  67. agirlagunner says:

    Good god. How awful are we?

  68. Suhail.TV says:

    Ever present crappy diaby.. When he intrude in first eleven Agag, you know.,?

  69. agirlagunner says:

    Take Diaby off, stv. Get Bendtner/Vela/Eduardo/Eboue in. Have we no ambition?

  70. Suhail.TV says:

    They are relaxed agag.. Looks like they are made for champions league..(spot)..we are fools.

  71. agirlagunner says:

    We have had a hellish March and April. Do they not want to reward us for our faith, stv?

  72. Suhail.TV says:

    Agag march is always been a nightmare for us.just re wind 2008. ….. Nor the AW does I feel..

  73. Suhail.TV says:

    Did van persie does a roy keane style revenge there..

  74. agirlagunner says:

    RvP must have been looking forward to that, haha.

  75. rico says:

    i’m off peeps, how many would have taken a point from this game before it began????

    we were dire, city were dreadful and we couldn’t beat them… sad day for us, but wenger must have seen that… SURELY!!

    be good all, stay safe…

  76. Suhail.TV says:
