The Biggest Signing Of the Summer

Forget David Villa’s 34.2 million euros to Stalker FC  Barcelona. Forget Cesc’s potential multi million pound deal to the same set of shitbags. Forget any potential big name signing to any of the european super clubs this summer can offer. The biggest signature will be that of Jose Mourinho when he takes over at Real Madrid.

Why? Because the man is undoubtedly the best club manager in the world right now and his legacy is only just beginning. As an accountant he may not be great, as a developer of young players he may not be great, but as a manager and a tactician there is nobody who can touch him. He’s not paid to make money, he’s paid to build a squad and lead them to glory and he does this with his eyes closed.

His record speaks for itself. At Porto he won the League twice, 2 domestic cups, the UEFA cup and the Champions League. At Chelsea he won the League twice and three domestic cups. At Inter he won the league twice, two domestic cups and the Champions League and he’s done all this in the space of eight years. In eight years of management he’s won 16 trophies in three different leagues. Say what you want about him, call him anti-football all you want, but the mans a genius and he delivers exactly what he’s paid to do. Football is all about winning. If it’s not about winning then why do we keep score? Jose knows how to win so I would suggest he’s far from anti-football.

In fifty years time nobodies going to care about the fact that Inter Milan had only 33% possession in the 2010 Champions League Final. All they’ll care about is the fact that Inter won the game 2-0 and they won the trophy with it.

That same logic can be applied to The Arsenal. In years to come nobodies going to care about the fact we played pretty triangle football that went sideways and nobody had a shot. All that will matter is Arsenal went 5 years and counting without a trophy.

For all the signings that Real Madrid made last year, this one tops the lot. To think that they managed to reach 96 points last year and still not win the league is quite amazing, but Jose will give them that extra 20%. Dont be surprised if Real go unbeaten next year and over take the 100 point mark. Which I hope they do because I officially hate Barcelona. They constantly stalk our players year after year and they need a kick in the bollocks.

So where does this leave Arsenal? When I think about what Jose is paid to do it makes  me wonder what Sir Arsene is paid to do. I wont go into too much detail into that one because I think we all know the answer and it’s been talked about until the cows come home, but where’s the excitement at our club now?

We lack so much ambition its untrue. Our ambition does not match the clubs status. The stadium is world class, our youth setup is world class, the foundations of the club are laid and we are regarded as one of Europe’s elite clubs. So why are we happy to just keep doing what we are doing every season? Where’s the extra effort to make that next step to make us the best of the best? That extra 20% that will make us world beaters isn’t there because nobody at the club has the balls to make the call and say spending £20 million on a top player every season will not turn us into Portsmouth or Leeds. Spending £20 million on a top player will not kill a young player because there’s a huge possibility that the young player wont make it in the first place. Cesc is one of the few players the academy has produced that can be argued to be world class and he doesn’t even have the values of the club at heart, he has Barca’s and always has done so whats the point??

It was a big risk moving to the new stadium and Wenger performed miracles but after a while it’s becoming a tad boring being regarded as a selling club and having the vultures circling every season. Picking off our best players because we can’t provide the medals to keep them.

Nobody has a god given right to win a trophy, but all I’m asking for is let us get some heart and soul back into this team and get the fans excited again.

Jose’s teams may not be the prettiest, but he wins the fans hearts by filling their trophy cabinet.

Take my advice Arsene, the fans do not regard 3rd place as a trophy. The fans do not care about making super sums of money every year nor do they care about killing the progress of Fabianski or Denilson. You are in serious danger of ending your legacy on a sour note, so nows the time to put your hands in your pocket and bring something home to give the fans something to shout about. Even if it is just the FA cup.

Give the fans something to get excited about. Do your job as a MANAGER!!

    Morning all

  2. rico says:

    Nice one JJ, i wouldn’t want Jose as manager for all the tea in china, but i’d sure as heck like wenger to adopt his single minded approach… he has the ablity to take each game individually and set his team up to negate the opposition. Some think the football is boring, but i think it shows his ability as a manager to do what ever it takes not to win…

  3. Benj says:

    You lot are a great set of farmers, us at Barcelona salute you for it.
    Thanks for looking after Cesc for us 🙂

    Jose will flop at the blaco scum.

    Visca el Barca

  4. craig says:

    …so go and support Real Madrid then.We on the other hand love football,who in their right mind would adore a Brazil team that wins thropies playing like Stoke.

  5. rico says:

    craig, don’t you want to get back to supporting a team that wins again?? I don’t mind if we adopt a ‘Stoke’ attitude once in a while if it wins us games. we have been sussed out and become a tad predicable, thats why the chavs and mancs beat us with such ease…

  6. rico says:

    Benj, come back when the season starts, if he’s signed for barca by then you will be able to gloat, til then i hope barca are counting their euros, its a long way to 100k Euros 😉

  7. clockendrider says:

    Well said Craig.
    My support of Arsenal isn’t just for the good times. It’s for life. It isn’t about whether the press and Sky sports lavish their false praise on us. I am big enough not to give a rub when I come in on a Monday morning to hear the Surrey Man U fans or nouveaux Chelski fans blindly repeating whatever nonsense the likes of Hairy Hands or Gray say.
    How about you, Rico?

  8. rico says:

    hi clockendrider, for me its about balance, i hurt when we lose and i’m a misery until we get the next win. i don’t want jose as said above, but i wouldn’t mind if we play like stoke against the chavs if it means we get three points, or even one at their place.

    its about horses for courses, and right now we are being beaten by clubs we should be beating….

  9. jeremy goldsmith says:

    Well said. Nobody will remember the pretty,pattern weaving soccer played by Arsenal when Chelsea won the double. Fans are not going to go bonkers over the pretty soccer. They want the end result: a win. Even if you have to play anti soccer.
    It’s over to Arsene.

  10. Erick says:

    Morning all 🙂 ‘Love him or hate him Jose is surely special without a doubt. Aw has some thing to learn from him and am sure at Madrid he will try to prove the world wrong by playing beautiful footie.

  11. Chipo says:

    good post. let’s just hope he does what he needs to do

  12. rico says:

    Hi jg, spot on, when the going gets tough…. we need to also…

  13. rico says:

    Morning Erick, Chipo…

    I cant stand the man Erick, but credit where it’s due… wish we had done to barca what milan did….

  14. K-TR7 says:

    Morning fellas.robin looked hot last night!…he is going to light up the worldcup.diaby made a dazzling run to set up the france winner in last night’s friendly…

  15. Erick says:

    Rico the el clasicos (spelling) will be mouth watering with players like Marcelo, Kaka, Ronaldo and Ramos he will try to bring in the style its just a wait and see. Nice one Jon Jon

  16. Erick says:

    Morning K-tr7 hope it will be the start of great things for Rvp on Diaby ‘no comment’

  17. rico says:

    Morning KTR7

    That’s the thing Erick, Jose is a proven winner now, becuase of that he will know that players will go where he is if they want to be winners too. barca will have a fight on their hands for the league next season…

  18. Vik says:

    Well, this article is biased one, and represents basically just one side of the issues. For example, ” They constantly stalk our players year after year and they need a kick in the bollocks”. Well, first of all, all these players wanted to play for Barca, also, all these players gave a lot of years playing for the Gunners. Secondly, any club could have been in Barca place and bought your players, but they just want to play for Barca. Therefore, you have just been jealous that they wanna leave Arsenal for Barca and Barca are able to give them an opportunity to try to win some trophies at least. You have to hate your management instead of hating other clubs because they just buy your players, it is how the football world works.
    Also, another funny thing, somehow you believe that Cecs is the gunners’ youngster, ahhaha that is ridiculous!!!!! ” Cesc is one of the few players the academy has produced that can be argued to be world class” OK!! and now tell me which academy has produced him??? the gunners’ haahhaha it is like he came to Arsenal when he was 10 and you guys thought the foundation of football, short passing football and ect, NO you have not done it, what you did: you got a talented player with a certain skills and knowledge about a football and then you helped him to develop and improve it. yes I agree you helped him a lot, but you can not say that YOUR academy has produced him, it is just does not male sense at all!!!! My conclusion: this article is just a biased opinion of Arsenal fan!!!!!

  19. Erick says:

    PHW says Aw will get all the cash from player sale is that the hint that Cesc is off????

  20. rico says:

    Morning Vik, of course it is, it’s an Arsenal site…

    Its not what the club does, its how thay have done it, all through the gutter press and the club players, its commonly know as tapping up and its wrong.

    They should shut the **** up and let the right man at barca contact arsenal and make an offer….

  21. rico says:

    i read that too Erick, i think he is saying that aw will get an amount and on top of that he will get any money he gets from sales…

  22. gambon says:

    Good post

    I dont want us to lose our style of football, but there needs to be balance.

    I dont want us to become an impotent attacking side that can only defend 1-0 leads but there needs to be balance.

    Balance is the word of the day. Take note Arsene!!

  23. rico says:

    Morning gambon

  24. skwam says:

    play pretty football yes, but put it aside and forget if you are going to lose all your matches, home and away, to your main rivals. i dont want to hear about pretty football when we play chelsea and man united. i want to hear that we won…3 points on the board first! then that way we can 1) be respected by our rivals 2) keep our good players 3)WIN TROPHIES!
    Whats the point of having a pretty woman that every man can have at will?

  25. Vik says:

    Morning Rico, be honest I’m a huge fun of Arsenal, it is basically my second club which football I admire and love to watch. And I’m actually sorry for a possible Cesc move to Barca, because I believe that he is needed in London for the next season more than in Barcelona because Barca have a plenty of players.

  26. rico says:

    Hi Vik, i take it you are a barca fan, and its good to see you here, can you see cesc getting into your first team next season?? I can’t and he will be a bit player for you, that would be hard for him…

  27. rico says:

    skwam – any true fan would want the same, pretty football is great on the eye, but we need plan b for the hard times, and we need a defender who can stop the likes the drogba, rooney and torres etc, right now we don’t have that, nor do we have a keeper who can keep the ball out the net…. sometimes its not about fancy footie, its about hard work and grit and maybe a few long balls – i don’t actually care as long as the three points are ours at the end of the game….

  28. Vik says:

    Well, if he comes, I do not have any ideas what kind of formation should be to use Xavi, Iniesta, Cecs and Toure or Bueskets and also, Villa, Ibra, Messi,Pedro and Bojan. Someone will probably warm a bench up, and Cesc could be one of these as well as others.

  29. K-TR7 says:

    It will be interesting to see mourinho at the circus.pellegrini has said he was forced to play in a certain way by the board.they also sold robben and sneijder against his will.he has never spoke with perez from august!…valdano has been a huge critic of mourinho’s teams but now they will have to work together…superegos will clash!

  30. K-TR7 says:

    Those who watched the dutch in the first half yesterday,thats the way we should play!the dutch played really well and were very direct.affellay,rvp and vdv were running the mexicans ragged at times.rvp and vdv seemed to have telepathic understanding…rvp looked lethal!he is showing worldclass form at the moment and he loves those volleys…by the end of the worldcup he will be in the elite of the best forwards in the world,hope he doesn’t get crocked again…

  31. rico says:

    Where do you see Yaya ending up Vik? Chelsea are favourites in the british papers…

    KTR7, would be funny if he mucks up though at RM, they won’t give him time that’s for sure…

  32. K-TR7 says:

    Vik i think what guardiola most probably do is alter your formation abit:if ibra has a better second season i see him and villa leading the line with villa being the more mobile player as he loves pulling wide left in his valencia days.messi will play just behind them as they will create lots of space for him.iniesta,xavi and sergio will be your mf.on the other hand ibra may be dropped,let villa lead the line push iniesta wide left to accomodate cesc in mf.i hope guardiola doesn’t do this;am pissed off by barca but i love iniesta and it would be unfair to make him play as a winger to accomodate a player inferior to him…

  33. Tom says:

    The guy is a bum who only makes himself look good when he’s been given loads of millions to spend or has walked in2 a team that is already full of stars. He took his luck this year in the champs league with a few dodgy decisions including an offside goal which if dissallowed would have seen Barca go through to the final even without Barca scoring 2 in the return leg.

  34. Vj says:

    Funny that you call us stalkers while praising the man who not so long ago called ‘Sir’ Arsene a Voyeur.. but the line that made me laugh even more was
    ‘Cesc is one of the few players the academy has produced’.. Brilliant! Keep it up!!

  35. K-TR7 says:

    Tom thats the problem with mourinho.he needs alot of money and is not a long term option.he walks out of teams alot and his comments in the media bring alot of negative publicity to his clubs…he is a winner though;16 trophies in 8 years in 3 different countries tells it all…

  36. Mikey says:

    Well put JJ.i won’t add more.all has been said.
    5 years isn’t a small duration of time.imagine where you’d be in such time?
    If Arsene won’t win anything this season,i feel it would be time he packed his bags n headed back to tigres n started training with gallas coz there’s a new breed of managers who have the hunger to win trophies n win them in truck loads.WAKE UP MR.WENGER N OPEN YOUR CHEQUE BOOK.

  37. rico says:

    Tom, I can’t stand the fella, but he does have the ability to get the best from the players he has….

  38. rico says:

    Vj, praising what he has done is different, trophies dont lie….

  39. Avashnee says:

    Hi guys, what arsene has invested so far is not just for now but for the future. No doubt we will progress and continue to be succesful. Obviously Mourinho brings something else to a club but then he goes- just like that. I admire him but prefer Wengers commitment.

  40. battymankillah says:

    Cesc should stay at Arsenal as Barca will not win anything whilst Mourinho is at Madrid

  41. rico says:

    Hi Avashnee, bet Moanrihno wouldn’t win any trophies with this current crop under wenger – mind you, nor has wenger 😉

    But when does the future become the present?? 😦

  42. king gooner says:

    ffs i nearly hate the smug arrogant barca fans more than MANURE & believe me that is saying something as that is one level below the gutter but barca are cathing up fast,the classless c**ts!as keegan would say “i will love ,absoluetely love it”when “maureen”wins the lot in spain in the next couple of seasons-might bring a sense of humility to them…

  43. Avashnee says:

    Hi Rico, wrong decisions, wrong players, hope “we” learn from our mistakes.Hi king gooner – 10 man inter milan should shut them up for a while – guess denial is a palce in spain.

  44. Avashnee says:

    by the way SA is going bonkers , the teams are beginning to arrive for the fwc 2010.

  45. CS1 says:

    The person that wrote this is either stupid or a glory hunter, watch when in a couple of years the new rule comes out that you can only spend your income and we will see where every one is, you are so short sighted, Arsenal are gonna be in the best possition, then everyone is gonna call Wenger a genius becuase not only is our income gonna be bigger then any ones elses, our youth system will have produced some very good if not world class players, so we are not gonna need to spend as much as every one else, guess whos goona be top dog then, watch in 5 years we are gonna be the Barca and Chelsea of football, where we will be buying their players, if people weren’t so stupid and blind they would see Wenger is 2 steps a head of every one else. Mark my words.

  46. rico says:

    Hi king gooner

    Avashnee, this is the summer to spend, we have money, if we sell players PHW has said wenger can spend that too – its do time for wenger, i hope he doesn’t let us down…

  47. rico says:

    i bet they are Avashnee, i hope its a peaceful WC….

    I’ve always loved watching barca, they have kind of been my overseas team. even been to nou camp to watch them and had a fab time – this cesc witch hunt though has made me re-think….

  48. rico says:

    CS1, JonJon is not stupid and he is not a glory hunter…. the rule isn’t in yet so wo whats the point in commenting about it…. We are in the here and now and normally fans want to see their side winning, don’t you??

    Or are you happy to get third and be beaten by the chavs, mancs, wigan, sunderland, spuds…… i sure as heck am not!!

  49. rico says:

    Guys and gals, I have to go out for a bit, back later 🙂

  50. W.A.T.H says:

    It won’t be a peaceful WC once I get over there Rico 😉 GG sales will go thru the roof 2….. lol…!.

  51. W.A.T.H says:

    oh gee thanx… I get here and u run off…… am i wearing the wrong deoderant or something…?

  52. Erick says:

  55. thegoon says:

    is it just me or is anyone sick of barca fans going on bout cesc is barca product?its too pathetic~only an idiot wud say am a product of my 5th grade teacher n not my university n employers!we undastand that success has many fathers n that faiLure is an orphan. so we undastand the glory hunt for cesc,s success which byond a shadow of doubt wud not have had at barca cos arsene tuk a gamble on playing jim young n giving him the exposure n room to develop.have u noticed bojan only managed to break into the team?after how many yrs?oh sorry he is still young. i see. truth is barca is gud at grooming talent whereas arsenal can being out d best nout of nothing u ask song, bendtner, diaby n in 2seasons theo, denilson n sagna.by the ,way cesc is only a god at arsenal cos we made him one.we built our team around him but most of our ‘products’ given less tym will his job n better.ask cesc on ramsey n let him tell it.we have endured so much trash from barca n its fans.please take him n as wit hleb,henry please barca show us u can deploy arsenal players better than wenger..then come back to tell us how much of ur product cesc is.the moment he leaves someone will emerge shining in his place as usual,n then as usual he wont fit into our squad anymore n the -i shudnt have left story begins. as if the warning of close friend currently at barca -hleb , were not enuff. sorry cesc urs is a saddest arsenal story of shipwreck career, mark my words.hopefully it will serve us by puting an end to disloyalty from our players

  56. Erick says:

    Nice Wath make sure your ready to hunt and cook have a real African adventure 🙂 🙂 No Wath your Version of the milkshake might make me black out for all the Wc period 😉 🙂 you Bandit

  57. Erick says:

    I hear Nikky B wants to play in spain Madrid or Barca what you make of it Wath?

  61. W.A.T.H says:

  62. K-TR7 says:

    Afternoon everyone.howdy wath hope you don’t go to south africa…imagine a stadium full of fans with GG…

  63. Erick says:

    Safari Safari Wath and GG will make my hunting bogus 🙂 K-tr7 whats up

  64. Amerigooner says:

    Whilst I wouldn’t want Jose to ever manage our club, I do think Arsene should go to school on some of the Portugeezer’s methods. To whit: Jose studies his opponents to an insane degree, and has a dossier prepared for his squad of every opposing player they will go up against, what are their strengths and weaknesses, and how they should minimize the former and exploit the latter. But you hear again and again from the Professor: “we need not to focus on our opponents, but on our own football and how we want to play.” While this is admirable, perhaps it is also a bit naive in the current day and age. Can’t we focus on our football and how we want to play, while also trying to figure out how to nullify our opponents strengths to a greater degree than we do at present? I’m not suggesting arsene doesn’t study our opponents, just that he doesn’t seem to adjust our approach that much, based on what he sees…

  65. K-TR7 says:

    Erick am eagerly awaiting for the wc to start and all this cesc madness to end…mou has said he is after great players in their 30’s who give their all;the media are saying its lamps and stevie me…we’ll have to wait and see…

  66. rico says:

    BOO, what have i missed, Nikki wants out, yipee, 15M and let him go 😉

  67. rico says:

    How rude of me, Afternoon WATH 🙂

    Poo, whats that smell 😉

  68. rico says:

    Welcome Amerigooner and thegoon, sorry for the delay in letting on your comments but i was out and they were in moderation 😦

  69. W.A.T.H says:

    U r gonna get such a spank……………… Yes you…! Allo K-TR how’s u mate…?

  70. rico says:

    When do you leave for the WC WATH, and by that i mean the World Cup 😉

    lamps won’t leave the chavs imho KTR7, Stevie me me may leave the dippers though, especially if ‘that story’ leaks soon 😉

  71. rico says:

    pffff, i come back and you all go 😦 😦

  72. rico says:

    According to some crabby old rumour site, Fenando Gago, Gonzalo Higuain and Rafael Van der Vaart are on their way to Citeh, the club officials are in spain sorting it out today….

  73. agirlagunner says:

    Good one, JJ. But i think I’d first have to have a lobotomy before I’d ever voluntarily say, ‘Yes, I’d have Mou’.

    Hello, rico. Why would Madrid want to let Higuain go? He has been in stellar form for them. But then that’s typical Madrid behavior. I’d be happy if they were to sell vdV to us though. He’s class.

  74. rico says:

    Afternoon AGAG, that’s a good question, I have read that the two men hate eachother – not sure how much truth is in that though….

    as for Jose, like his ability to get his team win, but wouldn’t want him as our manager in a million years….

    I’d much rather Steve Bould with Bergkamp alongside

  75. agirlagunner says:

    rico, do you mean Ronaldo and Higuain? I saw bits when they played v. Lyon and Madrid were eliminated. That’s the trouble with big heads, big clubs.

    Wouldn’t it be exciting to have Bergkamp back? oh the good old winning days!

  76. W.A.T.H says:

    When I do leave Rico…. trying to get rid of me already……………? Not booked yet waiting on a certain someone…!

    Hi AGAG…….!

  77. agirlagunner says:

    Since no on is about rico, now’s the perfect time to tell you my perfectly pointless observation that Torres got a haircut. No more of the emo blonde do. Yay!

  78. agirlagunner says:

    A-ha. Hello, WATH! rico, WATH’s waiting for you to disclose your travel deets! 🙂

  79. rico says:

    Ha ha WATH, of cousre not though, i will miss you, we all win 😥

  80. rico says:

    I like his hair cut AGAG, its better than it was 😉

    I read it was Jose and Higuain that didn’t like eachother, maybe it was just my old eyes playing tricks 😉

  81. agirlagunner says:

    rico, anything would have been better than that atrocious cut and color!

    I think it’s Ronaldo and Higuain who were rumored to have had a falling out after their CL exit. Mou would be crazy to let Higuain go. I wonder what Madrid’s plans for Benzema are. Hasn’t exactly been his year. That’s what I hate about big teams assembling a stable of big stars with no regard to compatibility of styles of play. Some of the most promising careers flounder.

    I am reminded of a situation closer to home. I hope Cesc doesn’t suffer the same fate when he returns to to that club. 😦

  82. rico says:

    You can always count on Ian Wright, can’t you??

    Speaking to talkSPORT magazine about current events at his former club, Ian Wright stressed with his usual passion:

    “We aren’t going to win anything, we aren’t signing players, we are getting rid of people, the fans don’t know what is going on. They are more interested in paying off the loan on the stadium, or whatever it is, instead of buying players that can do something.

    “Now look at what is happening, Cesc Fabregas is most likely going to go to Barcelona. It’s a bunch of mugs running it up there at the moment. Since they got rid of David Dein it was a nightmare for them.”

  83. agirlagunner says:

    How long will you be gone WATH? Are you watching England? I hope little Theo makes it. He’s certainly talked to the media a lot about “deserving” a place in the squad. Haha.

  84. rico says:

    AGAG, this is what i read…

    finaly higuain will certainly leave real madrid since mourinho is confirmed to join real madrid as the manager this coming season and if one person hates him to hell its higuain. expect alot of inter players to follow mourinho to real, maicon, or even samuel eto’o !

    Why is it Higuain hates Jose?

  85. rico says:

    WATH, well tell that certain someone to pull his socks up and sort it out, thats if he can still reach his socks while trying to bend over passed his tummy 🙂 🙂

  86. agirlagunner says:

    Not gonna disagree with Wrighty on that one.o

    It doesn’t make sense for one to hate the other cause they’ve never played together.

  87. W.A.T.H says:

    I will be there for about 3 weeks AGAG………. Have a mate who is like a big girls blouse and he is still not sure what dates he wants to go……… a total pain. Gonna watch a few teams AGAG not just England.

  88. rico says:

    THREE WEEKS!!!! and what are we supposed to do here when you have gone for so long…… 😉

    I’ll go on strike!

  89. agirlagunner says:

    That’s a long time, WATH! 😦 Try not to miss us too much 🙂

    Easy on the GG.

  90. K-TR7 says:

    Howdy agag.wath take care…mourinho has said he needs 3 or 4 defensive players and that his team will attack…forza mourinho!

  91. agirlagunner says:

    My crystal ball says: Essien and the two Argentineans at Inter are going to Madrid.

  92. W.A.T.H says:

  107. alex says:

    This, guy is very pissed, just because they haven’t been able to win ANYTHING in the past years. But don’t get me wrong I don’t hate or despise Arsenal, in the contrary I think they are one of the few clubs that works the best when it comes to creating talent, and that is something to be proud of. He says he hates Barca, because supposedly they always “stalk” Arsenal’s players. Probably the more fresh examples he would give are Henry’s move to Barca, and now Fabregas imminent move. But before you go spreading Barca hate around, tell me this mate: Henry- after trying, & trying & trying to win UCL silverware and not been able for some reason or the other, and after having won pretty much everything else in the local league (& every personal award there is), and with the years adding up on him, there not blame on him or the club that singed him for giving him BETTER chances of winning UCL silverware. I don’t know mate,but taking all this into consideration wouldn’t you have done the same? Now onto Cesc, at 16 and taking advantage of some dumm Spanish law that prohibits making contracts to 16 yrs olds, he was taken from Barca (I called that a very cheap move, so who really stalks players? uh?),

  108. Erick says:

    Rico = mother nature = Peace maker 🙂

  109. Erick says:

    Night all Take care Peace 🙂 🙂

  110. JonJon says:

    im the alphamale 😉

    has anyone seen the bendtner rumors??

  111. rico says:

    Night night Erick 🙂 , see you tomorrow …

    JJ, Erick mentioned it earlier, i say sell him

  112. JonJon says:

    if they are true he can piss off right now..

    this is what i was getting at last night..the foreign players are taking the piss out of us..the average ones keep their mouths shut but the best ones dont even see their futures with us..

    whats the point?? might as well tell nikki to piss off now and give his place to young benik..

    we want players whos dream it is to play for arsenal..not play for barca or madrid and pick up a huge wad of cash whilest they are shit..

  113. rico says:

    JJ, see the post in the drafts – i have stolen your comment 🙂

  114. JonJon says:

    i never look at posts in drafts rico..i always put my foot in it 😉 but i like the suspense of the next debate.. 😉

  115. W.A.T.H says:

    Oh well seems I’m late but ni nite everyone who has already left… JJ u raving pvc wearer….. where u been…?

    Bendy is thinking why they bought this bloke on a free transfer when they got me lol…

  116. rico says:

    Please JJ, Please go take a peep…..

    I don’t look either, well, not until i press the ‘publish’ button 🙂

  117. JonJon says:

    howdy popeye..

    i read only the other day that pinky was slagging off the medical team..your theory seems to hold a lot of water..

    like nasri

    ok rico you twisted my arm…

  118. JonJon says:

    i used to really fucking hate bendtner..every time their was a discussion about that kid i used to keep my comments to a short and sweet ‘he’s shite’

    he started to grow on me but if this is true hes back to being shite again..

  119. W.A.T.H says:

    Hmmmm well on the medical front….. seems we pretty crap….. Far to many complaints thats 4 sure.

  120. rico says:

    thanks jj…

    seriously, i would sell him, in fact if i was arsene wenger i would get every player who has a contract together – i’d say…

    ‘Those who don’t want to be here stand up’

    Those who stand up, get rid of and use the money, get players who WANT to be at our club….

  121. W.A.T.H says:

    JJ ur such a tart how can u dislike then like him…. fickle or what draw a line and he’s either shit or he ain’t stop moving the goal posts…! For me he’s average but gets no service simple as that.

  122. rico says:

    He’s had his nose put out of joint because we have signed Chamakh, he now knows he will have to work hard just to keep up with the new boy……

  123. rico says:

    he’s shit!! 😉

  124. Alex says:

    This, guy is very pissed, just because they haven’t been able to win ANYTHING in the past years.

I don’t know mate,but taking all this into consideration wouldn’t you have done the same? Now onto Cesc, at 16 and taking advantage of some dumb Spanish law that prohibits making contracts to 16 yrs olds, he was taken from Barca (I called that a very cheap move, so who really stalks players? uh?), and like Henry after not been able to win what a top player like him deserves (UCL) there’s no blame that he wants to go to a club that has the potential of providing him that. Because tell me this Arsenal had the chance to at least win the Premier this year, but again and unlike Barca (& for Cesc frustrations) the team didn’t have it in them to keep sharp on all crucial games, and don’t tell me that it was injuries, because Barca also had some serious injuries at the start of the campaign, which led it to playing Inter on group stages without some of their best players like Messi or Ibra (and still won). But unlike Arsenal, that lost important matches (some to lower table teams)which cost them the Premier, Barca did have it in them to keep sharp and win once again AT Least something. So Barca has the right to reclaim their TAKEN youngster, and Cesc the right to peruse the chance to at least winning UCL silverware. So PLEASE don’t take your frustrations on to making up arguments that Barca stalks your players, and don’t go spreading hate around. Peace everyone, I’m out.

  125. JonJon says:

    i started to like him because he started to put shifts in and he gradually won me over..

    you can be shit/average all you want as long as you put a shift in you’ll do in my book..

    i just cant stand players having no intention of playing for us in the long term..especially when theyve done naff all and spent the first 5 years of their career with us not being able to hit the net if the goal posts stretched from one corner flag to the other

  126. JonJon says:

    alex..

    petit, overmars, hleb, henry..and cesc????????

    say no more

  127. W.A.T.H says:

    Alex the preacher….. nice I like all this peace talk….. now pass the pipe who’s got it..?

  128. JonJon says:

    van bronckhorst..

  129. Alex says:

    my bad I posted it twice, but ignore the 1st one I accidentally hit post..

  130. W.A.T.H says:

    As u say JJ i dont care if a player lacks skill or technique long as he has heart and gets stuck in and fights for 90 odd mins for the shirt then sweet…. all these prima donna’s that go thru the motions can get fucked…..

  131. rico says:

    dunno WATH, but i want it…..

  132. rico says:

    Alex, the only thing that made sense is when you wrote ‘I’m out’ ….

  133. JonJon says:

    thats why i dont rate diaby wath..

    silky skills dont make up for the fact he doesnt turn up over half the games he plays in..

    ive always said the same about him but the final nail was the NLD..

    if he cant be bothered to turn up for a game like that then i really dont know what hes doing playing for us..

  134. W.A.T.H says:

    Oh no………….. u on that farm style grown green stuff thats industrial strength…. Off with the fairies I reckon…!

  135. W.A.T.H says:

    JJ u kno my thoughts on the 2 bit plum Diaby……..! Never ever turns up when it matters…!

  136. Alex says:

    The only thing u need to understand is that Cesc never felt Arsenal from the heart. And if it had been for him he wouldn’t have left Barca. The best way to see it, is that all this time he was just in a Long term loan deal with Arsenal.

  137. W.A.T.H says:

    Alex your talking utter rubbish cos Barca didnt want to give him a contract so he felt more loved at Arsenal and read his quotes from the other day he is loved more at Arsenal than at home. End of…. Oh and peace…! Barca use the media to cause shit throughout the footballing world and are despiced by most clubs in europe for their underhanded tactics so lets not get on the hind horse and try and justify that they are angels…..!

  138. K-TR7 says:

    Uefa have just announced there will be two extra officials in next seasons cl and also euro012 qualifiers…alex we get it!we always knew he was going back no need to rub it in our faces.arsenal will live on…

  139. JonJon says:

    alex if cesc would have stayed at barca he would never be the player he is now

    hes only made it big because WE developed him and gave him first team football in the best league in the world from the age of 17..

    it would have taken him until now just to break into the barca squad and the only reason the fuckers want him back is because of those under hand presidential election bollox thingys and the fact cesc is world class..

    its just an added bonus hes a barca fan..makes him an easy target but the fact of the matter remains hes got 4 years left on his contract and hes worth at least 60mil

    pay it or fuck off..

  140. Alex says:

    unfortunately Arsenal’s trickery will leave them with lots of cash. But don’t expect him to say otherwise, cause I can’t imagine him saying ” oh I feel hated at Arsenal that why I’m leaving..” hes not that kind of player. But believe me he feels Barca from the heart.

  141. JonJon says:

    arsenals trickery???

    whats tricky about having four years left on a contract???

    of course he feels barca from the heart hes never denied that but if barca felt the same way theyd stop trying to tap him up every year and just phone wenger and say name your price and we’ll pay it..

  142. Alex says:

    about the media stuff, well if you haven’t read the papers most of the time Madrid are on top of each one of them. But because all the time they talk about how they will try beat Barca in all ways, that’s why Barca’s names ends up in all media.

  143. JonJon says:

    ffs barca gave inter 40mil plus etoo for ibra..

    if they want cesc as bad as they say they do wheres the money????

  144. Alex says:

    my bad, the Arsenal trickery part is about half the way on my 2nd long post.

  145. JonJon says:

    media stuff???

    arsenal have said practically nothing about this deal…all the talk is from barca and cesc..

    hes under contracr ands its the biggest example of tapping up a player since jose and cole and if cesc goes expect arsenal to screw barca for more money..

  146. K-TR7 says:

    Barca should get off their high horses.every team has its golden generation enjoy it while it lasts…no team has the right to win a trophy so spouting rubbish about us when earlier on in this decade you couldn’t win nuff all while the galacticos and valencia tore up your league;if the invincibles had met that barca side we would’ve torn apart your first 11 home and away!i really liked barca but the manner they have treated this fabregas saga has left a sour taste in my mouth as their players lined up like little girls ‘barca DNA’ what the hell is that?doesn’t messi have argentine DNA?bollocks!did you give birth to cesc?we gave him the chance so pay up or sod off!30mil can’t buy our groundsman!…they say they are more than just a club…more like classless mob!don’t be fooled by the unicef logo…they couldn’t care less about those children…

  147. JonJon says:

    cesc has never denied he wants to leave..it doesnt help barca are clearing up and we cant win a raffle but barca are trying to get him on the cheap but they can fuck right off..

  148. JonJon says:

    joses gonna clear up now anyway..

    he will for the next few years..cesc can go..he wont win naff all at barca either..

  149. K-TR7 says:

    JJ barca control the media too.they unsettled hleb who was vital to us and destroyed his confidence.they tapped up henry for several seasons and rumour has it they haven’t paid up.Madrid tap up players but they pay up!i hope mourinho lifts the galacticos to where they deserve and maybe they will become humble again.do you see the smug look xavi wears nowadays?where was he when ballack and pirlo were the top dogs?how dare he say our captain has no choice but to leave?he is our captain!…i really liked barca but their behaviour have disappointed many including my mates who are non-arsenal fans…

  150. JonJon says:

    right guys im off..

    im gonna go play champ manager and take control of real madrid.. 😉

  151. Alex says:

    that’s the part the u need to understand, why would Aarca have to pay a hefty price for a player that was with some advantages taken from them? it just doesn’t make sense.

  152. K-TR7 says:

    Alex we gave him a chance and he developed to a worldclass player and captain of a major european side at 23.so cesc isn’t going to submit a transfer request and will only leave if barca pay up!he has said he is in no hurry to leave and wouldn’t mind staying.we won’t budge…PAY UP OR FUCK OFF FARCA!

  153. JonJon says:

    oh it does alex..

    this wasnt a loan deal..cesc has an eight year contract..hes only half way through it..

    the part that you need to understand is that talent, age and CONTRACTS play a huge role in a players transfer fee..

    i dont give a shit if cesc started his career at barnet or accrington stanley hes currently a world class player playing for ARSENAL, club captain and on a long term deal…

    pay up..

  154. JonJon says:

    totally spot on Ktr7..

  155. rico says:

    Alex, i’m with JJ, barca have been very sly with their approach for our captain, spanish media, spanish papers, papa cesc and every player who is signed to club barca….. if that is no tapping up???

    And yes, we gave cesc the chance to play, all barca did was to give him away, in their eyes he wasn’t good enough, we have proved he is…. and now you want him back….

    100K euros, and you can have him back…. Thats how it goes..

  156. rico says:

    Way to go KTR7 🙂 🙂 Spot on …..

  157. W.A.T.H says:

    Barca are a bunch of self rightious scum bags…. Pay up of fuck off and shut the door on the way out… them and madrid do all their shit through the media and now we got some plum giving it the big un….! Talk about blinkered dont come close.

  158. W.A.T.H says:

    Barca get the hump cos real got more history than them and more European cups….. Imagine if that was us and the yids were more successful than us… Now you know why they all bitter and twisted.

  159. Alex says:

    You beth Barca will pay, but don’t dream that it will be the 80mil they want. he’ll come to Barca i’ll tell you but it won’t be for near that amount. I’ll say it will be around the 50mil or less LOL. But see it like this the money will help you buy a couple of middle class chaps, and once again help you sleep at night thinking…well this will finally be our year..but..wait a minute..WAKE UP NOOOO!!, read the headline Man U and Chealsea battle for top spot, Arsenal loses to Blackpool and hopes vanish once AGAIN!

  160. W.A.T.H says:

    I wonder how long before you go broke don’t you owe the banks 500 million euros…. big club my arse…! Can’t even pay ur bills cos you buy shit players for over inflated prices to pamper to egotistical presidents and now your a club debt ridden…! Wait til you have to sell everyone over the next 4/5 years choke on ya sangria over that one sunshine…!

  161. rico says:

    i’m off for the day peeps, i’ll leave alex to dream…..

    WATH, i just love your 8.05 🙂 🙂

    Night all, stay safe…

  162. K-TR7 says:

    Of all major cl winners i respect ac milan the most.they are what all clubs should aspire to be.its sad to see them struggle as am a huge fan.i hope they come back…barca are afraid because mou will awaken those european giants.try catching up with madrid who you are so far behind in terms of titles…at least the mancs/pool are ahead of us by 5 titles but i can’t see barca catching to madrid any time soon…forza mourinho!messi can score as many as he wants but there are two matches in the 38 he won’t…guess which…

  163. Alex says:

    does that sound familiar on the last couple of seasons eh? Well see ya all I will go look how Barca are preparing Cesc arriaval for next week, and I will go play & coach Blackpool and I’ll tell you what… when I go against Arsenal I’ll let you win.. how that..LOL

  164. Alex says:

    Visca el Barca, Visca Catalunya and Vista the best player in the world.. And the best “playstation player” Messi…LOL

  165. W.A.T.H says:

    Yes stick to lay station and best u get to bed b4 Mummy comes to see what your up 2…!.

  166. JonJon says:

    i would laugh my bollox off if barca piss about trying to get cesc on the cheap and jose comes in and says ‘i’ll give you 80mil euros’ and cesc agrees to go play with ronaldo

  167. K-TR7 says:

    You just have to stand by and be amused by the arrogance of barca.they think they invented footy(4-3-3) while it was actually the dutch in the 70s.they turned the sprinklers on the inter players after they were eliminated…the way alves and sergio go down when an opponent breathes on their necks is a sight to behold or maybe there are snipers in the crowd?…

  168. K-TR7 says:

    Wath and jj you know of some spuddy fans who pretend to support barca…i can smell them,don’t you?…

  169. W.A.T.H says:

    Yes K-TR they smell of bacon…………. We all know the teams in spain cheat like shit just like their corrupt clubs…. Quite funny actually…!

  170. JonJon says:

    it funny how barca are never after the spuds players aint it???

  171. K-TR7 says:

    If barca is so great why do they stalk our players?if your youth system is so great why have you bought villa after pedro and bojan perfoming so well?…oh yeah you aspire to beat madrid’s mou but its probably gonna take 5 golden generations to do it…pay up or sod off…

  172. JonJon says:

    busquets dive v inter made eboue look like razer ruddock

  173. K-TR7 says:

    JJ who in their right mind would want players like jenas?im telling you jj&wath if barca had met the invincibles(if not for bridge!) they would have been embarassed!i hope we rebuild to get to that level again…where are you spuds?get out of the closet,we won’t tell…

  174. JonJon says:

    if barca would have met the invincibles they would got a royal roasting..

    pires henry and bergkamp would have ripped puyol and alves a new arsehole and cole would have dealt with messi..thats if vieira hadnt of kicked him into row z first along with xavi iniesta and that pussy busquets..

  175. K-TR7 says:

    Busquets has a face you would love to punch…like randall…busquets is inferior to toure yet he plays,they sold eto’o for ibra,bought chygrinsky for 25mil…actually they are quite hopeless in transfer window under guardiola!its like watching a drunk baby chase a cat…by the way keita and alves were rijkaard’s signings…

  176. JonJon says:

    lol ktr7

    right im really off now..catch you lot tomorrow

  177. W.A.T.H says:

    cheers JJ, me too am off take it easy K-TR7 and dont let them wind u up they peasants…!

  178. K-TR7 says:

    Night everyone…

  179. Why is it that arsenal have got the biggest following from all English clubs outside of England then? Is it the famous style of play that arsenal have to get the fans excited or even our famous youth system. why isn’t it manchester utd, Chelsea or Liverpool ? Please answer me this

  180. Kev says:

    “It was a big risk moving to the new stadium and Wenger performed miracles”

    the above is an extract from your own write up………. Personally i think it say’s all that needs to be said. If we had jose in charge we would never have moved to the new stadium and even if we had and jose had to work under the same restraints as wenger has had to for the last 4 or 5 years there isn’t a chance in hell we would have still been qualifying for champs league and mark my words we would have just dropped away and been aiming for Europa league each season!!!
