Robin’s rants, Henry plans Arsenal return, Ozil is up for grabs now!

Just what we need to hear from one of Arsenal fans favourites. Robin says it’s time to get tough and get in the faces of the opposition. We need to do unto others what they so love to do to us. Play the pretty football, yes, but when the chips are down, put the pretty stuff on the back burner and start showing some grit and steel.

Frimpong certainly wasn’t afraid to against Barnet was he, now the rest of our crop need to adopt a similar stance. One difference though between playing Barnet and teams like the Chavs is that the Barnet players don’t roll over like they’ve been caught by a stray bullet from the local firing range. Football for them is hard week in week out, they ride a tough tackle and dish out tough tackles, it’s called football. and we need to start mixing a bit of that in with our pretty stuff!

Shall we dance Emmanuel? Nah Audrey, let’s go get stuck in!!

During an interview Robin said this about Holland and Arsenal. Funny enough he was the first player that Howard Webb booked during the WC Final.

Just before France had to pack their bags, Patrick Vieira said to me that you don’t have to play well in the group stages of a World Cup, not even in the second round.Only later do you have to grow as a team and you will reach a high level. That will get you to the final. That is exactly the way we did it. Against Brazil in the second half, we were brilliant.

Van Persie added that five trophyless years at Arsenal are proof that great football does not always get its just deserts.

I know how difficult it can be to play wonderful football and not get the result you want, I see it at Arsenal more than I want to. When we play the likes of Bolton and Blackburn we dominate the game, we play attacking football and they score from a lousy throw-in or an odd corner-kick. Then we end up chasing them again. The criticism Holland got in the World Cup I recognise from what we get at Arsenal. It was a final. You don’t give up without a fight, do you?

Good man Robin, now tell your team-mates and your boss!

Thierry Henry has spoken about his move to the USA, it’s a short-term plan, he wants to win another trophy, then retire and come home to England and be part of Arsenal again – it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if he gets his coaching badge while in the States and is being lined up to be part of our management team, maybe with Dennis Bergkamp…. Now that’s a mouth-watering prospect!!

Sadly, as one great striker thinks about returning one day, it seems that another may soon be leaving us, reports came out yesterday that Eduardo will undergo a medical today at Shakhtar Donetskt – if its true then I really wish him the very best and I understand why he is leaving, this may also explain his sudden absence from the squad on Saturday. 😦

Mesut Ozil is up for grabs after Werder Bremen admitted they will listen to offers for the midfielder, I’m not sure whether we would be in for a shout of getting him as his value is around £20M. If ever though a signing could happen to put the smiles back on the faces of Arsenal fans, it would be this one.

We could always offer Werder Bremen Diaby, Denilson and Almunia in a player swap deal couldn’t we??

Other snippets, suggestion is that we will up our offer for Phil Jagielka. I’d rather we walked away and use the money to get Cahill, he’s only valued at £13M. The Daily Mirror report that Jay Simpson could be given a second chance to prove himself at Arsenal. Having scored two well taken goals against Barnet at the weekend it could be the start of a new beginning. I hope so and with the new rules coming in, he may just stay and take that chance…

Finally, well done to Tom Cruise whose goal helped England under 19’s beat Austria 3-2 and Francis Coquelin played his part in a France 4-1 over Holland. Gilles Sunu was on the bench. Interestingly, there was the next  Sneijder generation on show in the second half. If Wenger is after another youth player, maybe he should be looking to snare him Rodney Sneijder is his name, keep an eye out, his current club is Ajax!

Have a good day all….

  1. rico says:

    Morning all

  2. Erick says:

    Morning Rico 😦 😦 Dudu Dudu sad very sad. Nice Idea about swapping Denilson with Mezut but we would have to add cash slow news day

  3. rico says:

    Howdy Erick, we would miss him, but its better for him. He hasn’t really played for us for a long while, so i’m kind of used to his absence…

  4. Erick says:

    Rico only if we get Ozil when he leaves will I feel better but he is a great servant

  5. rico says:

    Morning rose, henry was quite diplomatic about cesc, he still loves us doesn’t he..

    selling dudu would give us a few more pennies, question is whether wenger would spend them…

  6. Erick says:

    Howdy Rose how are you holding up don’t we all loathe Mondays hope your feeling better

  7. rico says:

    To be fair though, where would ozil fit in and who would be ‘killed’ – we need to sure up the defence and keeper position before we splash out on a player like ozil…

  8. Erick says:

    Rico am sure Aw will not invest imagine Ozil playing down the left my oh my competition would on for the midfield Cesc can get what he wants

  9. rico says:

    if cesc goes, which i am beginning to believe he won’t, maybe wenger would look to another player like ozil, but right now i cant see it sadly, he’s already said he’s not ‘in the market for attacking players’ – not that i believe much of what he says really…

  10. Erick says:

    Rose I just saw it somewhere and thought it was funny. Rico true the defence is priority but am sure with the poor showing by some players he would get a starting spot

  11. Erick says:

    Rico wouldn’t want us to buy his replacement when he has left that would be expensive we just need to do it behind the scene

  12. rico says:

    i don’t doubt he would start Erick, just can’t see old tight arse arsene spending that kind of money. he would prefer to wait until his contract has run down next season, by which time the stains/mancs/chavs/madrid would have bought him, or even city could add to their hundreds of players..

  13. rico says:

    i think wenger would if he knew he was off, knowing him he will tie up a deal behind the scenes, cesc go next summer and ozil is ours…. 🙂

  14. rico says:

    Shakhtar are hoping to get Raul as well as Dudu…

  15. Erick says:

    Cesc seems to be stain infected don’t think winning would change his mind

  16. rico says:

    Erick, i can understand why he wants to go back to Spain, his family are there, just dont like the way he has gone about it all…

  17. Erick says:

    Raul and Guti are yet to start their pre season training seems their are off Real mean bizness hope the stains win Zero

  18. rico says:

    And so say all of us Erick….

  19. Erick says:

    The problem is that may be we are living in denial but when a player does not want to affirm his commitement to his club it means something but I know I will be slated for this but 🙂 Oliver be gentle

  20. rico says:

    I don’t think as much for cesc as i did either, if he doesn’t want to be with us i would rather he would just say so, not be so deceiptful about it all…

  21. Erick says:

    Other news the Jag rumour is getting stronger we are supposed to be going with a second offer may be I will echo your commitment 13m Cahill but we need someone who can settle quickly

  22. rico says:

    Erick, i’m befinning to think you don’t read my posts anymore, that bit of news is in there 🙂 🙂

  23. Erick says:

    I blame the stains for all these but Aw has been cool abt it if it was me I would have blown up by now

  24. Suhail.TV says:

    Morning Rico and Erick,.. good post. Robin is loyal.

  25. Erick says:

    Rico I do everyday even when I don’t post there was a mistake in my comment I was supposed to say I echo your comment of 13m for Cahill not commitment just another Cesc hangover 🙂

  26. Erick says:

    Rose am also eager to see Rvp just keep them crossed Stv howdy mate Good morning

  27. Suhail.TV says:

    Cesc is infected with
    Piqute Encinonimia.. caused by some stains..

  28. rico says:

    rose, i was dreading him picking up an injury in Africa…

    Morning STV, thanks and robin is our Mr Arsenal 🙂

  29. rico says:

    Just teasing you Erick 😉 😉

  30. Suhail.TV says:

    Both.. rose, 😉

  31. rico says:

    rose, i don’t think its just you 🙂

  32. Erick says:

    Rico always teasing 🙂 I like 🙂 Talking of teasing is the Sailor back home or he is still running after zulu skirts

  33. Suhail.TV says:

    Eric what s ur major?

  34. rico says:

    See you later rose, have a good day

  35. rico says:

    The sailor is still in SA Erick, back this week I think he said…

  36. Erick says:

    Major in school or in drinks 🙂 STV Gurdiola is set to hold a press conference and he will be asked about Cesc its also going round that a stain delegation will be polluting London with their presence with a 35M for you know who I wonder what part of Sod off they don’t get

  37. Erick says:

    When was he in poor wath’s Liver it must be tired as hell

  38. Suhail.TV says:

    In school eric, .. and I think guardiola is less infected comparing others..

  39. rico says:

    is the pep i/v on television Erick?

  40. Erick says:

    Public Relation STV and its true Gurdiola has been very proffessional about it I respect him so much

  41. Erick says:

    Its due this Morning Rico but am not sure where it will be shown just read it from Arsenal news on twitter Rico we need to open a twitter account so we can get more people in here just a stupid Idea I was thinking about

  42. rico says:

    Slight problem there Erick, I don’t how to do it 😦

  43. W.A.T.H says:

    Erick don’t you worry about WATH’s liver it’s doing splendidly well thank you ;-)it’s been well lubricated hung out to dry and now working tip top again…!.

    Shame about Eduardo but think best for both us and him. No way is Jag worth 18million rather get Cahill for 13/14 and he younger.

  44. Erick says:

    Rico am also new there but we can always try no worries RA must have a book about twitter 🙂

  45. Suhail.TV says:

    Do Jag have a horn making him bit more expensive.??

  46. rico says:

    Morning WATH, good to hear your liver is doing fine 🙂

  47. Suhail.TV says:

    ..and allo Mr WATH.., Whaths going on.., still in SA??

  48. Erick says:

    oi oi oi Sailor am worried that your liver has no say in all this 🙂 nice to see you back Dudu 😦 I like this guy and now think their is a truth in all this. Rico we would just put a link to bring people here that I think would be it

  49. Suhail.TV says:

    Eric 💡 , good idea

  50. rico says:

    Erick, if you are twitter, see if you can find AR and me 🙂

  51. Erick says:

    Horn STV 🙂

  52. Red Arse says:

    Hi Rico,

    Good post with plenty to talk about. 🙂

    Can’t stay now but be back later.

    I have sent you something.

  53. Suhail.TV says:

    ..back soon

  54. Erick says:

    Even though am not twitter a search on it on AR said no results but a Rico search brought alot of people the most interesting its that he was chinese is your husband from China Rico

  55. Red Arse says:

    Sorry for not saying hello to Erick, Wath, Rose and Suhail.

    Will be back to tease you all later. 🙂

  56. Erick says:

    RA back on the spread sheet 🙂

  57. W.A.T.H says:

    Hi ST how’s you… Yep still in SA back in Londo lata in the week. It’s been freezing here of a nite time so have had to keep warm and brandy in front of the fireplace with plenty red wine is spot on. Through the day of course the GG has kept me going.

    Erick my liver has no option it will do as it’s told 🙂

    The writing was on the wall with Eduardo last season you can’t lose your bottle and play in England simple as that and no I don’t blame him after the assault on him so he must move and play in a decent league and good luck 2 him.

  58. W.A.T.H says:

    U can leave me out the teasing thanx RA………. I am getting worried about you, I leave you for a few weeks and look what happens…! Enuff said.

  59. W.A.T.H says:

    Chinese Rico…………… lol that’s funny…. Yeh is Mr Rico called Plikey ?? :LOL:

  60. rico says:

    You buggers, i’m trying to sort twitter and you are being cheeky 🙂

  61. Erick says:

    Wath 🙂 Plikey 🙂 Rico will kill you for that am sure Agag can discus more about how you tease her Sailor

  62. Erick says:

    Rico its Wath not me you know I would want you to stop the teasing 😉

  63. adam says:

    That Puyol is a classy guy isn’t he? I thought his latest comments told you all you need to know about Him and the club he plays for.

  64. Erick says:

    Wath what you make of Cesc Saga better stay in SA until London is pollution free from the Stains

  65. rico says:

    adam, he is as bad as all of them…

  66. Erick says:

    Adam Caveman you say

  67. rico says:

    Erick, see what happens if you search avenel road on twitter please 🙂

  68. W.A.T.H says:

    Rico is now to be called Lico and Mr Lico is Plikey ?? Hmmmmm Erick, Cesc stays or goes it makes no odds all I care is that those stuck up cnuts pay the going rate, they are a joke club full of self opinionated pricks all of whom have no class what so ever. vermin the lot of em. They conduct themselves like bandits and thrives and thats exactly what they are. fifa and eufa are gutless as well as we all know. 50million minimum on the table or fuck off simple as that.

  69. K-TR7 says:

    Morning all.Pep has said they want cesc but if we don’t want to negotiate he will stay…spurs stadium plans have been delayed for 2 more months…

  70. rico says:

    Spot on WATH, spot on….

  71. rico says:

    Morning KTR7

  72. W.A.T.H says:

    Mornin KT….!

  73. K-TR7 says:

    Wath its been a long time.hope your liver is holding up well.

  74. W.A.T.H says:

    My liver is fine KT………. 😉 Hi Rose, back where lol

    Seems Lico and Elick are trying to tweeter….. 🙂

  75. rico says:

    Hi RA… thanks for the email 🙂

    Twitter is up on the side…. i think 😉

  76. rico says:

    Wey hey, Facebook and Twitter added, see sidebar 🙂

  77. K-TR7 says:

    Its funny that rosell is flying in as AW is flying out to Austria…i can’t believe the sheer arrogance of barca.34 mil for our talisman and captain is a joke!Guardiola looked pessimistic though…

  78. Red Arse says:

    Hi Rose,

    Good to see you so fiesty. Wath’s influence. 🙂

    Anybody born in Liverpool is a scouser, (they call themselves that), so it’s O.K.

  79. rico says:

    Thanks rose, not sure its all set up right mind you 🙂

  80. Red Arse says:


    Pasta salad is great with a little advocado.

    I’m having smoked salmon with cream cheese on Rye. 🙂


  81. Red Arse says:


    Sorry I did not see your earlier post.

    I would like to assure you that I would not dream of teasing a man who walks around SA with pink bootees, a pink tutu, and a pink Vuvu. No sir? 🙂

  82. Red Arse says:

    I think Barca are trying not to lose too much face with their nonsensical transfer “negotiations”.

    Problem is they have already lost their dignity, honour and credibility! :angry:

  83. Red Arse says:

    O.K. talking to myself again, am off until after lunch.


  84. rico says:

    I’ve been talking to you, you just aint answered RA 😉

  85. W.A.T.H says:

    Rose they are also called bin dippers cos they such scratchers………..!

    RA………. Hmmm seems u been talking to JJ far to much..!

  86. oliver says:

    ohayo gozaimasu, all! erick, i shan’t slate you as you said. only think i will say about this who cesc thing – quoting anais nin, of all people – is that “we do not see things as they are, we see them as we are” hence, all the different emotion and conjecture about what is really going on. i note rico alluded to a possible modification regarding her position on a possible cesc transfer.

  87. rico says:

    WATH, now i always thought it was beacuse they are lucky 😉

    hi oliver, i did, only slightly though, by a season. still think though if barca make an offer of 50M+ he will be gone before the new season begins… In fact a last day transfer may very well happen…

  88. Red Arse says:


    I should have added about them there scousers, that “scouse” refers to a type of meat stew and then became associated with the Liverpool accent.

    Hence people who speak with a certain accent and eat a certain food are called “scousers”. 🙂

  89. Red Arse says:

    Ahem, Excuse me Wath. I’ve worked my fingers to the nail looking after the ladies for you and that’s the thanks I get?

    Well I bought you a pair of pink gloves to welcome you back. No chance now! 😦

  90. oliver says:

    hi rico. perhaps – i never thought that arsenal would refuse to sell at any price, and there would always be a magic number, which, if offered, would compel our club to at least start negotiations. i think a lot of this – perhaps not all – is bluster intended to appease a domestic audience which has been all but promised cesc at camp nou this summer. he is still on holiday – in spain, i think – so i do not expect to hear much from cesc directly, either way.

  91. rico says:

    bloomin wrong though oliver, we pay his wages, he should speak…. 😦

  92. rico says:

    Guys/Gals, off for a bit, back later 🙂

  93. Suhail.TV says:

    Any body out there..

  94. oliver says:

    rico, we may pay his wages, but his speaking out previously never really ended speculation. perhaps for a little while, but it always cropped up again. i do not think for an instant that cesc coming out and saying he does not want a transfer to barca will stop the speculation – barca will probably come out with something like “yes, he does”. don’t even worry about cesc right now – focus on what arsenal does/does not do – that will be more telling.

  95. W.A.T.H says:

    Oh well least Cole has gone to the dippers what a total waste of money 4 that little dwarf fucker, no disrespect to dwarf’s intended. Money grabbing circus pony…! That’s the dipper budget gone in one go lol

  96. raif says:

    Great Ambition shown by Cole dont you think

  97. agirlagunner says:

    rico, I agree with Erick, we owe Dudu another year. And YKW can go, I find that I’ve stopped caring. And when he does, RvP can be captain. I quite like the idea. 😉

    Hello, all. 🙂

  98. raif says:

    i think Dudu wanted to leave. he started last season so brightly and then just fell off the rader, so i think he lost his bottle for this leauge and maybe at arsenal aswell. somthing could have happend behind the scenes,

  99. agirlagunner says:

    raif, our strikers are all so injury prone, I’d rather we have him on board. And he is quality! He just needs a run of matches.

    As for Joe Cole, who cares? We’ve got Little Jack. 🙂

  100. raif says:

    agirlagunner, i would have liked to have seen Dudu have another year with us and give it a crack.
    but i really think he just wanted to leave in the end, for what reasons i can only guess.

    but all this must mean Wenger is moving Vela up in the striking options or his got somthing else pland

  101. agirlaguner says:

    There’s a reason Taylor should be the one Shawcrossed, or Shawcross himself Taylored!!! Grrr.

    I really hope Vela shows Arsenal the form he does for Mexico. He looks so short of ideas sometimes. And so lacking in confidence. 😦

  102. W.A.T.H says:

    Raif shows exactly what coles ambition is…. Money pure and simple…. oh well least we know they will knick all his belongings from the house he buys lol

  103. W.A.T.H says:

    Hi AGAG how’s you ? All well I hope.

  104. K-TR7 says:

    I have just seen a photo of YKW signing a barca shirt…i’m really starting to hate him!

  105. raif says:

    we have seen so many flashes of greatness from Vela but fails to turn it on when it counts or when there is some kind of pressure,

    i also think England might be a little hard for him to settle in to, also if he cant speak the language properly then its only going to be harder for him.

  106. agirlaguner says:

    Hola, WATH. Howdy? Easy on the fermented grape juice! Do you really drink as much as you declare? Scary. 🙂

    KT, he was signing kids Barca shirts even before the Stains headed to SA. Ugh.

  107. W.A.T.H says:

    KT relax mate what does it mean….. one of those horrible little spanish pricks is hardly gonna give him an Arsenal shirt 2 sign…..! What he wrote was “I wont ever be wearing one of these Arsene won’t let me and Barca are to skint”

  108. W.A.T.H says:

    AGAG that’s a secret……….. Nothing wrong with fermented grape juice though… lol !! I am fine thanx and i hear ur workin 2 hard..!

  109. raif says:

    W.A.T.H haha indeed, first away game after buying his house will get robed, and most probably shit in his living room aswell.

    but im not to boverd about cole to much either i would have liked to have him but i would always pick a Keeper over having him any day.

    also who is YKW?

  110. W.A.T.H says:

    YKW is you know who as in our Captain…! Well the mouthy little wide boy will come right unstuck up there…! very funny indeed.

  111. agirlagunner says:

    Nothing wrong wit a glass of fermented grape juice with dinner, WATH. Not a barrel, a day, surely?

    I love my work. I love my work. I love my work. (If I say it like a mantra… I just might learn to love my work) 😉

    Raif, You Know Who is otherwise known as The Wantaway. You know, the one with the infamously Barca DNA.

  112. Suhail.TV says:

    VELA.. our..VILLA

  113. W.A.T.H says:

    AGAG those are slanderous rumours about a barrel a day…! I did offer to share with you as well but you declined lol

    Hmmm work is like that is it… not good

  114. Suhail.TV says:

    Hello AgAG.. YOU look tired.. work 😦 .. and YKW recenty diagonised witk some Piqute Encinonimia..

  115. agirlaguner says:

    Shame about the Catalans, now I don’t even want to touch Spanish wines. And Rioja is sooo good. 😉 WATH, I’m sure you did not offer to share your grape juice.

    Hola, STV. How are you? LOL on that disease.

  116. Red Arse says:


    You mentioned “little dwarf fuckers” and then apologised to dwarfs.

    I notice you didn’t apologise to the little fuckers, what’s wrong with them?

  117. agirlagunner says:

    I think my comment went to moderation. Must be another email addy.

    Shame about the Catalans, now I don’t even want to touch Spanish wines. And Rioja is sooo good. 😉 WATH, I’m sure you did not offer to share your grape juice.

    Hola, STV. How are you? LOL on that disease.

  118. W.A.T.H says:

    I think you need to read properly RA I called him a dwarf “fucker” (singular) then hence appologised to dwarfs for tarnishing with them but it was the closest I could get too……….

  119. W.A.T.H says:

    AGA I most definately did offer to share with you but your correct in pointing out it was the GG not the fermented grape juice….! 😉 rioja is ok but not a patch on SA Cabs……!

  120. Red Arse says:

    Thank you for the correction Wath.

    Actually I do read pretty darned goodd and my spellin aint bad neithrrr.

  121. Suhail.TV says:

    Am fine AGAG,& U..

    Have high hopes on Vela,
    playing v well for their nationl team..

  122. Suhail.TV says:

    hello RA 🙂

  123. Red Arse says:

    Hi Suhail,

    Loved your medical prognostication for Agag.

    That means she has a pimple on the end of her nose that can only be cured by eating a frog.

    Go for it Agag.

  124. Red Arse says:


    I totally agree with you about Vela. He really needs more playing time with the team, but he is always knackered by playing for Mexico or injured.

    Let’s hope this season is better for him. 🙂

  125. agirlaguner says:

    STV, isn’t it past your bedtime? I have high hopes for Vela too. Let’s hope he delivers the goods this season. He is more than capable! 🙂

    Hello, RA. How are you?

    WATH,,, wash your mouth. Gargle with some GG to disinfect! 😉

  126. Suhail.TV says:

    ..also keep pasport safely 🙂

  127. Suhail.TV says:

    You are a medical marvel.. frog eating, but the cave man’s recipe 😦

  128. rico says:

    Have the dippers signed a dwarf, Which one of the seven 😉

    Afternoon to all 🙂

  129. Red Arse says:

    Hola Agag, oh great keeper,

    I am well thank you. I’m sorry to hear about your pimple,but the frog will soon cure it! 🙂

  130. Suhail.TV says:


  131. Red Arse says:

    Hi and G’bye Rico Dico (not one of JJ’s, I hope) 🙂

    Apparently they have signed a special type of dwarf. But Wath can explain better.

    Got to go shortly. 😦

  132. Red Arse says:


    What’s a 21:51? It’s not rude like a 69 is it? 😉

  133. Suhail.TV says:

    no, time here at 21:51

  134. Red Arse says:


    That’s disappointing. Not the time, obviously but ….. 🙂

  135. Red Arse says:


    You will be relieved I am off, before I lead people into frogdom and other naughty things.

    Bye for now. 🙂

  136. Suhail.TV says:

    so.. bed time RA, bye see you
    ..good night all

  137. rico says:

    🙂 RA,

    I just popped in to, got to go again, night to all those departing…


  138. agirlaguner says:

    No wonder I was going into mod. Can’t even spell my name. Hah.

    RA, you’re so naughty. Catch you tomorrow. I’m zit- free at the mo. Had a mini facial over the weekend 🙂

  139. Red Arse says:

    Goodnight Suhail.

    Rico this is my last word. There are heavy rumours …. well from that well known source of info aka Pedro, that we are closing in on a GK and a DM.

    Never would have thought that myself! 🙂 🙂


  140. W.A.T.H says:

    GG as a mouthwash………. I do that anyway AGAG 😉

    I’m off catch ya lata

  141. Red Arse says:

    Night Agag,

    In my mind you are always beautiful, zit or no zit. Thank goodness Suhail found a cure! 🙂


  142. rico says:

    Anyone around??
