Time for the little squirt to fulfill his dream, Gary Neville is spot on….

All of course in my opinion, I’m allowed one 😉

Barca now want Clichy according to reports this morning. Well we’ve heard that before so it could be old news. If its true though, I actually think we would cope. Yes he’s improved a whole lot as last season went on but we have Gibbs and Traore behind him, both are quicker and both put a better cross into the box so all would not be lost if Clichy decided to jump ship, or if Wenger decided to push him…

Talking of that bunch of Scum Barcelona, again our little Russian has been speaking about his love for the Spanish club.

Its funny though really, Arshavin hardly set the world alight last season, in fact in many games he just ‘went missing’ like so many big players have done before him. IF Arshavin really wants to play for Barcelona maybe we should just sell him now, whilst Wenger is talking about buying players. Wenger doesn’t do that often so maybe its a good time to take advantage – the only downside of course is that Barca are yet to suggest they would like to poach him from us. I doubt very much they will either!

He say’s he’s ‘satisfied’ at Arsenal – not very convincing is it!!

We have supposedly upped our offer for Laurent Koscielny to £8M according to The Sun and Lorient have until Thurday to make a decision – £8M was the rough price the players club asked for him in the first place, so it looks like we could see another signing confirmed this week.

Wenger is suggested to be off to South Africa on Thursday, so I won’t be surprised if we see a bit of action in the next couple of days. Hopefully most will be good news, but maybe the bad news will come this week too 😦

Talking of the World Cup, the Theo Walcott debate continues. Today it’s Gary Neville’s turn to give his opinion and I think he’s right…

Neville, 35, said: “I did think Walcott would be chosen because he is a goal threat from out wide and he’s explosive.

“Theo potentially has more goals in him than Wright-Phillips and Lennon.

“He has played centre-forward in the past so it would’ve been another option in that position.”

In his day Neville was a top defender (did I just write that 🙂 ) He must know what its like to have England’s equivalent of Usain Bolt racing past him. I still think Capello has missed a trick, but at least we get a fit player next season. The way the players are limping out of the tournament, maybe its a good thing Theo hasn’t travelled..

Few little snippets, Nicklas Bendtner is doing battle with a groin injury which could jeopardise his World Cup, Fulham hope to nab Senderos on a freebie during this summer and Deportivo are thinking about putting ‘an offer in’ for Carlos Vela.

The big man from Russia has bought some more shares I read, that’s all beyond me a bit, but I guess if he or Stan buy Lady Nina’s shares we will have a new owner – I’m sure someone will explain it later

That’s it for today, have a good one….

  1. rico says:

    Why didn’t we just offer 8M for Laurent Koscielny to start with, or have i mentioned that before somewhere…. 😉

  2. Rob says:

    Because you can never start at what they want, even if it just seems like us being tight…

    They wouldve just pushed us up a little further, but I’ll be REALLY frustrated if there aren’t 2 signings in pre-cup.

    AW said all business done pre cup, so he’ll just put in a bid for a player on deadline day, say he tried to sign them and then that there was nothing better than what we already have….

  3. rico says:

    Hi Rob, he’s all too predictable these days isn’t he, always after a bargin…..

    Just two, three for me, keeper and two defenders are a must, but we all know that… 😦

  4. steve says:

    clichy will go to barca or real. he is not good enough in a defensive role if the mnoey is right?
    wenger is trying to buy English defenders cahill/jagileka/taylor but is being quoted silly money he wont go there

  5. Aicher says:

    £40 mill for Fabragas with Clichy thrown in its madness if Wenger lets the board sanction that

  6. Rob says:

    All these keeper rumours don’t make sense

    YES we need a keeper desperately, but AW made statement after statement defending flappyianski, saying he’d stay, so he doesn’t want a keeper.

    I hate how we as arsenal fans have to be ‘realistic’ with who were buying.

    Chelsea United City and even spurs now going after big names, but we have to think small because AW doesn’t like spending money. Not because we don’t have it

    These Gourcuff rumours have no meat to them, neither will any of the other big player links

  7. rico says:

    Cahill is up for 13M isn’t he steve? What’s Jag’s price?

    Taylor is in Wenger’s range though… I wouldn’t mind him as a third choice defender…

  8. rico says:

    Rob, if we sell cesc, i see wenger going for Gourcuff, i honestly do.. wenger doesn’t trust Almunia and we don’t trust him or Flapianski, he has to get a keeper, the spice man seems fav as he is cheap, he would be idea for 2/3 seasons…

  9. rico says:

    Aicher, they won’t let that happen, it would be utter madness… don’t forget we are a club who makes money… 😉

  10. K-TR7 says:

    Morning all.if anyone here saw the rvp interview you would be proud of him.a legend in the making…

  11. rico says:

    Morning ktr7, did you ever doubt that? he puts players like ‘the little squirt’ to shame…

  12. K-TR7 says:

    I wish rvp was abit lucky with everything.injuries are mainly contact,you’ll rarely hear him pull a hamstring.secondly most of his attempts hit the woodwork.in 08-09 rvp had 20goals and 16 assists but also hit the woodwork 16 times.his freekicks are superb but the goalkeepers seem to have blinders against him the same way gomez did.i really hope rvp fulfills his potential…

  13. W.A.T.H says:

    I see the Mancs have a little-Sorry make that LARGE debt problem…! how funny…!.

    Wenger as usual will not say anything about transfers and when the end of August comes we will know exactly who’s and and who ain’t…!. We all know we need a Keeper and 2 central defenders and another hard man in midfield thats a minimum.

  14. rico says:

    ktr7, everyone hopes the same about robin, except our rivals of course…

    we worry about losing cesc, the spuds must be very worried about poss losing Harry…

  15. rico says:

    Morning WATH, That is so sad for the mancs… 😉

    if he doesn’t get busy in the next few days, we know we wont be getting world class players, they will all be out of his price range after the WC

  16. Erick says:

    Morning all AA should shut up am tired of his attitude Barca can have him for free he just aint a fighter and complains always

  17. W.A.T.H says:

    2b honest Rico plenty decent players not going or not gone 2 the WC…..! AW should not be at the WC he should be buying players………..! he should be dealing with transfers not commentating and earning money for Jap tv or frog tv…! thats bollox if u ask me..!

  18. K-TR7 says:

    Morning wath.i think koscielny signing is imminent and by all indications it looks like aw wants a goalkeeper too.aw may surprise us…

  19. Erick says:

    We don’t seem active on the keeper front all the rumours are dying down hope it doesn’t mean we are not getting a keeper

  20. rico says:

    can’t disagree with either comment wath, said before that i couldn’t care less who we sign as long as they have fire in their belly, proud to wear the shirt and WANT to play for us – look at Chamakh, he may not be Torres yet, but he sure is saying all the right things about his new club…

    as for wenger being at the WC, its wrong, he is a manager not a pudit, leave that to who have it as their first job….

  21. rico says:

    Hi Erick, i reckon we will get ‘the spice boy’ if Hodgson goes to the dippers… As much as i would love us to go for Pepe, I think he will follow Rafa to Milan, as will Mascerano (spelling)

  22. rico says:

    Who’s going to get crocked for England today then, I reckon Lennon and King… And why did Capello take Barry, he’s already out of the England opener against America….

  23. Erick says:

    Ktr7 got to read the RVP thats a legend right there men Cesc can learn from him give him the armband. Rico we need a keeper and fast Aw should stop focusing on the Wc and focus on the defence and the mf

  24. rico says:

    Agree Erick, and i think we should go get VDV to keep Robin happy 🙂

  25. W.A.T.H says:

    I not seen the Robin interview where is it…? I think keeper is sorted he know’s he needs one a blind man knows we need one…!

  26. Erick says:

    You won’t notice Cesc is gone Rico Rvp and Vdv perfect combination

  27. Erick says:

    Wath go to goal.com and stop using weed + GG 🙂 🙂 not sure about the keeper Wath but hope your right

  28. W.A.T.H says:

    only use for weed Erick is for Bill n Ben……….. only you will get that Rico cos ur old 😛

    thanx erick will check goal.com now…. Ta…!

  29. W.A.T.H says:

    I mean hmmmmmmmmmm older than Erick is Rico 😉

  30. rico says:

    flobba lobba a lob 🙂 🙂

  31. rico says:

    Erick, if we get VDV and Gourcuff, we definately won’t miss cesc, he’s old and crocked now in any case 😉

  32. Erick says:

    Sailor am all milkshake am not using any grass but Rico’s eyes are red hot I wonder what she is up to 🙂 🙂 what you make of Fulham keeper seems a deal is done or on the pipe line

  33. Erick says:

    Hope Jose says he doesn’t need him or he puts in a transfer request

  34. rico says:

    Nothing red about my eyes Erick 😉

    What am I up to?? I am off in a short while to clean the animals out then take the mutts for a walk…. Just hope it doesn’t rain

  35. W.A.T.H says:

    Take the umbrella and ur wellies………….. little weeeeeeeeeed weeeeeeeeeeeeed…………..

    Schwarzer would do me for a year or 2 til Chezney is ready…!

  36. rico says:

    The Spice Man 😆

  37. W.A.T.H says:

    It’s soooooooooooooo quiet I propose a game of hide n seek

  38. rico says:

    100, found you!!

  39. rico says:

    Richards has to be on his way out of city now they have bought boetang…

  40. W.A.T.H says:

    Richards can go 2 the yids…………. he’ll enjoy it there…!

    U ain’t found me u cheated….! 😛

  41. rico says:

    i know hes a jack the lad, but don’t you think he would be a good addition… surely wenger could sort him out…

  42. Erick says:

    Nah Richards is average we can spend that between the post that should be priority.

  43. rico says:

    Ok Erick 😉 Why do some reports suggest that Senderos will be part of the Schwarzer deal??? Senderos can go where he wants cant he….

  44. K-TR7 says:

    Anyone seen reports that sandro rosell has agreed we keep fab4 for one more year?

  45. W.A.T.H says:

    That’s sooooooooooooooooooo nice of him eh K-T and who the fuck is he to tell us anything the jumped up piss stain really….! fuckin cheek these cnuts r really getting on my nerves…!

  46. K-TR7 says:

    Wath they are skint!

  47. rico says:

    what bollox ktr7 (not what you have written)he’s ours for five years, they can take a run and jump….

  48. K-TR7 says:

    Rico they are trying to save face since they can’t afford him!its hilarious the banks have said no…

  49. W.A.T.H says:

    About time Arsenal made another statement about these piss stains and their piss poor ethics of doing their transfers through the media…!

  50. W.A.T.H says:

    SHows what a tin pot club they really are K-T… the banks said yes to Madrid and yet no to the stains…! that’s funny…!

  51. Erick says:

    Cesc stays that great but we must give him supporting players and look for a replacement

  52. K-TR7 says:

    They pretended they didn’t need sponsorship money hence signing up for UNICEF.well barca those kids ain’t gonna pay your debts!…

  53. Erick says:

    Great busines Rico Senderos going the other way but we have to get 2 CH 🙂

  54. rico says:

    I think its hilarious that the bank won’t give them money, if they won’t this year they have no chance next year either as they will be outdone by Real Madrid…

    Karma chaps, bloody Karma 🙂

  55. rico says:

    Erick, its rubbish, Senderos won’t be part of any deal as he is a free agent, the story has to be garbage…

    i reckon Koscielny is in the bag, as is the spice boy, now lets go get Subotic.

    Cesc’s eventual replacement will no doubt be Ramsey..

  56. Erick says:

    Hope Barca don’t win anything next season and don’t get past the group stages of the CL that will bring them down to earth

  57. rico says:

    or Cahill….

  58. Erick says:

    Am not sure about Koscielny I saw an interview of his clubs chairman and he seemed to want more dosh for him but he said he won’t stand in his way

  59. rico says:

    We’ve upped our offer to their asking price erick, we should get him…

  60. agirlagunner says:

    Hello, all. Catching up on the comments. Back in a bit.

  61. W.A.T.H says:

    Ah, about time my good lady joined me…………! Pours two glasses and awaits her return…!

  62. rico says:

    afternoon agag, wont take you too long today 😉

  63. rico says:

    Thats agag gone then WATH 😉

  64. W.A.T.H says:

    Listen I gave you ur cabbages and brocili now my good lady AGAG gets the good stuff 😉

  65. W.A.T.H says:

    and a glass of GG 😉

  66. agirlagunner says:

    Every freakin’ day, the stains become more hateful. And
    rico, I’d like to keep Clichy. I don’t like Traore at LB. Clichy goes walkabout sometimes, but at LB Traore sometimes just looks really ponderous.

  67. Erick says:

    Wath thought you were off 😉 😉 the ladies brought you back you Sailor

  68. agirlagunner says:

    Aww, why thank you WATH! I’d like the two glasses to myself though. 🙂 You should be watching your liver.

  69. Erick says:

    Howdy Agag aka someones old lady 🙂

  70. W.A.T.H says:

    My liver and I have a great understanding AGAG I keep it well lubricated and it looks after me…… you want two glasses…………. Oh ur just so spoilt by me… ok ok two glasses it is….!.
    I’m never far Erick………!

  71. W.A.T.H says:

    I think AGAG gonna kick ur arse 4 calling her an old lady Erick best you run….!

  72. agirlagunner says:

    Hello, fiction writer and weedlord, Erick. Slow news day. Again, it is you know who and the stains and Pique now (cause Xavi had his say yesterday), tomorrow Puyol, then Messi and maybe Iniesta. Tiresome lot!

  73. agirlagunner says:

    Oi, Erick. Those are fighting words!

  74. W.A.T.H says:

    I told you Erick………….. now ur in the shit…!

  75. K-TR7 says:

    Howz agag?stains are skint!

  76. agirlagunner says:

    WATH, your liver wrote me a note and it spelled c-i-r-r-h-o-s-i-s. Haha.

    So Robben did not travel to SA with the Dutch team… That’s sad (and I dislike Robben immensely). I’d have been cheering for Spain, but I hate 1/3 of their squad (the stains, obviously) and now want them to be thumped by the Dutch.

  77. agirlagunner says:

    Hey, KTR7. Well, I’m chuffed that they are. I hope they go bankrupt. Mes que un club, whatever. Mes que deep in debt, more like.

  78. Red Arse says:

    Hi Guys

    It’s a strange situation with the Arsenal shares.

    If say Ushmanov bought Lady Mucks share, he would be over the 30% level and would have to make an offer to all the other shareholders to buy their stakes.

    This values their shares at the highest level paid by him over the previous 12 months.

    If he obtains more than 75% of the shares the remaining shareholders would have to sell to him if he wanted full ownership.

    This all would apply if the reverse was true and Silent Stan bought Lady Mucks shares.

    It’s a big gamble given the money involved because if the others say “niet” he (which ever one) would be left with an expensive holding without control and possibly unable to sell the shares.

    Fizman has really ensured there are potentially no winners unless they buy out his ranson holding which is effectively the contolling stake.

    I know, you are all bored rigid! 🙂 But it is another quiet day.

  79. Red Arse says:

    Sod it. I must have put them all to sleep!

  80. rico says:

    Hi RA…. I’m watching England, waiting for SWP to get an injury 😉 😉

  81. rico says:

    agag, robben is a great player though, i wouldn’t be unhappy to see him in a gooner shirt, just the kind of player we need….

  82. Suhail.TV says:

    Hello all.. save money and help man utd..

  83. agirlagunner says:

    I’m here, RA. 🙂 That’s all very interesting. I don’t know which is the lesser evil between the Russian and the Yank. Cold war hotting up?

    rico, I cannot make myself watch England; too many chavs, and I break out into hives.

  84. rico says:

    Too many chavs, mancs and spuds for me agag, and ageing old dippers!! i’m only watching to see who gets injured 😦

  85. Suhail.TV says:

    Hi AGAG lets join our hands and cheer NETHERLANDS

  86. agirlagunner says:

    Hola, STV! There’s a strange sense of satisfaction in seeing other clubs drown in debt, knowing that we are in a healthy financial position.

    rico, I think I’m really just programmed to dislike chavs/former chavs. Haha. If he stopped diving, I’d love to have him around.

  87. Suhail.TV says:

    What on earth make that Carrager qualified exept the age..

  88. rico says:

    Hi STV, i’m a dutch fan for the next few weeks, i would love Robin to be a world cup winner…

  89. agirlagunner says:

    It ought to be SWP or Lennon or SWP AND Lennon. I bet you, Stevie Diver is thinking about whether or not to come tumbling down. He must have heard about Drogba’s latest injury. 🙂

  90. rico says:

    Keeper signs professional terms with Arsenal

    Arsenal Football Club is delighted to announce young goalkeeper Sean McDermott has signed his first professional contract with the Club.

    McDermott (17) was a regular in Steve Bould’s Under-18s goal last season, making 12 appearances to help the team finish top of the FA Academy League Under-18 table.

    Everyone at the Club is looking forward to the continued contribution and development of Sean with Arsenal in the forthcoming years

    Can we now get a mature one please 😉

  91. Suhail.TV says:

    AA is begging LA PORta but LA porta is not interested in signing him..

  92. rico says:

    Lennon isn’t 100% fit anyway, that’s what cheeses me off….

  93. agirlagunner says:

    I do want Robin to win. He deserves every good thing coming his way now. His current form confirms what he has said about working his arse (and thighs and ankles) while in rehab.

    If the you know who issue is not brought to clarity, I will cheer the Dutch, for sure. While I’d still like Torres, Villa, and even you know who to have a great campaign though; I want Robin to have a smashing one.

  94. Suhail.TV says:

    why any body in barce put an offer for the prig..? AA’s prompting not enough. I would like to see VDV in his place or even a mouth “Shutted” AA

  95. Red Arse says:


    Hi Girls did you read that a “source” close to Joe Cole (i.e. himself) says that he won’t join either Arsenal or Manure.

    He doesn’t seem to have much option as neither club are prepared to meet his required salary. I don’t care particularly either way but it does smack a bit of his namesake Cashley. (greedy b*****d).

  96. rico says:

    STV, VDV over AA for me any day of the week, the man blows hot and cold, thinks he the best thing since sliced bread but doesn’t play as well as he thinks he does…

    RA, i’m with you, if Cole joins us, good, but if he doesn’t I won’t lose any sleep…

  97. agirlagunner says:

    I read that too RA, and thought to myself that for a guy whose own club in vacillting on re-signing him, he’s pretty arrogant! Sure, he’s quality, but he hasn’t exactly had storming year. But then again, once a chav… 🙂

    STV, I don’t know why our players are so enamored of Barcelona. I really don’t. Such a distinct lack of class…

  98. rico says:

    got to pop off for a bit, see you all later, if you’ve gone, hope to see you sometime tomorrow…

  99. W.A.T.H says:

    They saying Robbens injury is not as bad as first thought…! I don’t care how good an impression he does of swan lake I’d love him at Arsenal.

    AGAG u never worry about my liver when ur glugging down my GG….!

  100. Red Arse says:

    Agag, they all love Barca for the same reason. Money.

    Arsenal pay well but it’s peanuts by Madrid/Barca standards and our new tax rate of 50% upsets UK bsed players.

    Oddly, with the £ improving its rate against the Euro, we lose out because of the problem above, but we also lose out because 40m Euros for an Arsenal player (Shhh you know who) is now worth millions less than when the Euro was almost on a parity with £.

  101. Suhail.TV says:

    How can he look at other’s faces at arsenal after all these rubbish packed interviews..doing the same since he joined us.. Arsenal now in big chaos since a bluffer keeps his mouth opened, others (capt / mngr) keep it closed so keeping the fans perturbed.. Lack of satisfactory replacement for keep(jock)ers..

    But every one should be positive and should heve a good mental strength.

  102. Red Arse says:


    Have you noticed when I am posting W disappears, and vice versa when he is flirting with you, that naughty Sinbad, I am not around. Do you reckon we are the same bloke? 🙂

  103. agirlagunner says:

    WATH, it’s the principle of it. How can I hate the Rooneys and the Gerrards and the Drogbas of this world, when we have one of the poster children of diving himself in Robben (As if AW is seriously thinking about buying him…)? (let’s not talk about Eboue, I don’t quite know how to defend him… 🙂 )

    I don’t worry about your liver when I’m glugging your GG cause my liver’s much younger than yours 😛

  104. Suhail.TV says:

    na AGAG grey geese likes younger livers .. be careful

  105. agirlagunner says:

    RA, I wasn’t aware that the tax environment was so no-win for the players. But then again, they’re paid a hell of a lot for kicking a ball around, snapping each other’s ankles, making cuckolds of their best mates, posturing, etc. I find myself unsympathetic to the plight of the top tax “bracketeers”. 🙂

  106. agirlagunner says:

    🙂 STV

  107. Suhail.TV says:

    an 50M asking for the cesc is suicidal

  108. Red Arse says:

    I’m totally with you Agag.

    I was not being sympathetic to the players, quite the converse. They are by and large money “sensitive”.

    Arshavin grunts “50% tax bad……………. need to leave Uk”.

    Club decides to sell the sod………. £ stronger, club doesn’t get so much dosh for the Euro.

    We should buy British where possible. But foreign are usually better. Sod it.

  109. W.A.T.H says:

    AGAG ur a cheeky wench and Erick knows full well your nearly as old as me …

    RA why do you vanish when I am around lol……..

  110. Red Arse says:

    Now you’ve blown our cover W. 😉

    I’ll have to give the Yfronts and glasses back.

    Will Agag ever forgive me… sorry us?

  111. Suhail.TV says:

    WATH ,, Agag is the oldest after rico.. but the liver is young cause of lesser GG than you!!!! haha

  112. agirlagunner says:

    RA @ 4:18,– very funny.

    For a country that houses the world’s greatest league, the British are surprisingly… invendable. 🙂

  113. W.A.T.H says:

    I think ur right STV………….. RA… u in Y fronts and glasses…….. Hmmmmmmmm very Joe90 ish 🙂

  114. Red Arse says:

    I thought I looked very raffish, although when I borrowed the Y’s from you I hadn’t counted on the extra airconditioning in the rear! 🙂

  115. Red Arse says:

    Agag, stop confusing me with science. What is Invendable?

    Players inability to be dispensed from a vending machine. 🙂

  116. agirlagunner says:

    Oi, excuse me, WATH and STV, my age is still within the number of days in… some months. 🙂

    The y-fronts and glasses bit is a wee disturbing, by the by. 🙂

  117. Red Arse says:

    Yeah, that’s what my mum says, so I got to go and wash my mouth out. It’s all Sinbad’s fault. 😉

    Hope she lets me out to play tomorrow!

  118. Suhail.TV says:

    y fronts useless.. nw.. !!

  119. W.A.T.H says:

    AGAG Y fronts for RA alis Joe90 is very disturbing…!

    there are no 60days in any month AGAG 😉

  120. W.A.T.H says:

    AGAG Y fronts for RA alias Joe90 is very disturbing…!

    there are no 60days in any month AGAG 😉

  121. K-TR7 says:

    Pique has said signing cesc will be difficult…reports claim of them letting cesc stay for one more year…am i sensing an end to cesc chase?wasn’t it only a few days ago a barca director said cesc signing would be easy?skint bastards!

  122. W.A.T.H says:

    They ae so full of themselves hot air and bullshit if they actually shut teh fuck up for 24hours they will self explode…!

  123. agirlagunner says:

    Good night, STV.

    RA/Joe90, you’re a quirky one. 🙂

    Oh and do stop projecting your age on me, WATH! And don’t take your dozen old-age-ails pills with the GG. The combination could prove lethal. 😛

    Hola, KTR7, those Barca players grow more abominable by the minute. I haaaaate them. Night!

    Night, rico!

  124. rico says:


    Night agag, sleep well….

  125. Stu says:

    Gotta completely disagree with Neville…and the post i guess.
    I just dont rate Theo and clearly neither does Capello. He may have blistering pace but imo brings very little goal threat, especially for england. Apart from his famous hattrick he hasnt scored for england…thats a pathetic record imo. Only scored in 1 game for them.

    Im glad Theo didnt make the WC squad because it means he should be fit and have something to prove for next season.

  126. rico says:

    H Stu,

    Thats fair enough, I’m biased towards Theo and I know I am wrong, but we went to the same school and all I hope for is that he now knuckles down and sorts his fottball out – i really think there is something in him, he just needs the confidence to play…

    Hi Rico, yeah he does have the ability in him somewhere, or else he wouldnt have been bought by Wenger. Problem is he lacks any kind of consistency or composure when it really matters.

    I dont rate him and wouldnt be upset if he did leave but if he suddenly became brilliant and got 20 goals and assists next season then i would be delighted. Unfortunately i just dont see it happening.

  128. rico says:

    Stu – where do you see his best position? I see him as a striker, love to see him given the chance up top, then if he fails i’ll re-think 😉

  129. rico says:

    I’m off peeps as all quiet, see you tomorrow 🙂

  130. Stu says:

    I dont honestly know where i think his best position is.

    In the 4-3-3 i think he is in his best position i.e. right wing forward. He isnt good enough either on the ball or with his back to goal to play in the middle of a front 3, nor is he big enough imo.

    In a 4-4-2 he isnt good enough at defending to play right midfield and imo he definately isnt good enough to warrant us changing it back to this to play him through the middle.

    He isnt tricky enough to play as a proper winger, nor is he good enough to play CF, regardless of the formation (relatively poor finishing, no hold up play etc).

    So basically i think his best position is right wing forward.

    Night Rico…

  132. rico says:

    trouble is tho stu, how will we know about him as a striker if he doesnt play there?

  133. rico says:

    was just logging off and saw you still around…. im not a rude one 😉

  134. W.A.T.H says:

    He should be tried through the middle you and I been saying that for months Rico, if he fails off him…!

  135. rico says:

    I know WATH, he’s a bloomin striker according to afc and theo, play the lad in his position i say…

  136. rico says:

    jsut like traore, he is the nearest player we have to a proper winger.. what does wenger do….

  137. Stu says:

    We cant risk playing him CF in the first team. I would say stick him there in the reserves to see how he does and give him confidence but the level might be so low that he would look fantastic but fail miserably against the good teams.

  138. Stu says:

    He sent traore on loan. Wenger wont do the same with Theo. It would be like admitting he was wrong and we know Wenger never does that. 😆

  139. rico says:

    wenger got it wrong with theo the day he signed him Stu, he should have gone straight back to the saints….

  140. W.A.T.H says:

    Spot on there Rico Theo should of been left with Southampton for at least another season…..!. If he plays through the middle with decent service then he’ll soon get comfidence if he banging the goals in… I think all through pre-season thats where he should be played…! what do i kno…………..

  141. rico says:

    WATH, thing is, wenger just puts players into positions, we see positions where the right player should be… he may be a master in many’s eyes, but i think he isn’t that good at all really…

    although it saddens me, hes been found out!!

  142. rico says:

    the only reason he didn’t loan out Theo WATH is because he’s british…

  143. W.A.T.H says:

    Well he loans out all the other English kids…..! He has turned a few players from one position to another and thinks he can do it with all of them. He see’s a player and tries far to often to make them what they not…!

  144. rico says:

    for sure wath, but they didn’t cost millions and they weren’t called theo 😉 😉

    have you seen the stuff about jose is letting five players go, one is VDV 🙂

  145. rico says:

    oops, do you mean denilson and diaby, nik, theo and 1000 others 😉

  146. W.A.T.H says:

    Not seen VDV listed I saw the headline but not taking any notice 2b honest…! if and when he comes then greta but the gossip and the bullshit just pisses me off cos everytime I like a player we never go get em…!

  147. W.A.T.H says:

    I am saying nothing about D&D 😛

  148. rico says:

    I couldn’t have put that better WATH, there are so many players out there, and like you said earlier, not all are at the WC either – i just wish the manager would grow some and bloody sort this squad out….

  149. rico says:

    but hey, gossip keeps us bloggers chit chatting…. 🙂

    I’m off for the night, definately this time, you be good and not too many gg’s 🙂 night night wath…

  150. W.A.T.H says:

    Nite Rico…………….. no GG’s 4 me 2nite got bit of work 2do… HAve a good evening…!
