Arsenal: All the latest Arsenal flavoured news, views, rumours and other assorted bits and bobs

Who didn’t last the course? Deco (Chelsea) It all started as planned: Deco scored a screamer on his Chelsea debut, at home to Pompey in the August sunshine, but it was quickly downhill after that. The Ronnie Corbett-faced Brazilian has been unlucky with a string of niggling injuries, but in no way can he be […]

Sartorial excellence? Hmm, no Look at the fancy Gooners! They may be rubbish at winning silver, trophy-shaped things, but they’re at the cutting-egde when it comes to announcing their new kit, as this embedded video shows. (And I didn’t realise Arshavin was so much shorter than Fabregas.) We put up a leaked photo of the […]

Mmm-hmm, that is a tasty burger As spotted by ITV’s Clive Tyldesley, I think, during the commentary on one of Arsenal’s Champions League matches this season. More Shit Lookalikes

Madrid already in talks to make Wenger their new boss According to Guillem Balague’s website, Real Madrid have “set wheels in motion” to sign Arsene Wenger as their new manager. Balague writes: “An alternative source claims that Wenger has spoken personally with Florentino Perez last week, possibly by telephone: with further conversations set to take […]

Gender equality yet to reach Russia, clearly “If my wife’s car drive into group of gypsies, will there be any damage to car? Very nice!” God love Andrey Arshavin and his old-school, Borat-esque sexism. In an interview with the Daily Mail this week, the Russian refused an opportunity to at least pretend that he thinks […]

Ouch, that is nasty This is a leaked photo (montage) of Arsenal’s away kit for the 2009/10 season. First thing you notice… it’s blue, like the sort of blue worn by bitter rivals Spurs. Second thing you notice, it looks cheap and nasty. That’s what I think, anyway. Some of you might dig the colour and […]

Arsenal lose again, Chelsea bounce back In the wake of Tom Henning Ovrebo-Gate, I thought Chelsea might suffer more when it came to this battle of the Champions League losers, but I was way wrong. Guus Hiddink’s team came to north London and stuffed Arsenal on their own patch, to cap a truly crappy week […]

RTE pundits > all other pundits As ever, RTE’s excellent gang of football experts shame the likes of Messrs Lawrenson, Townsend and Claridge. Favourite moment: when Souey asks Dunphy which clubs he has managed. Bold chat there, Graeme - your managerial track record isn’t very good. More classic Dunphy: Calling BBC pundits “clowns” Slagging off Cristiano […]

Who will win the battle of the Champions League bridesmaids? Someone got busy on Photoshop. A smug Man Utd fan, perhaps? [Thanks to Jamironad for the tip] Seen any more funny football virals? Drop me a line, Pies would love to hear from you

Ex-ref says Roberto Rosetti was right to show red card to Man Utd player That’s right folks, Poll says Fletcher deserved to be sent off in last night’s CL semi. The Scot will now miss the final. In his Daily Mail column, Poll wrote:

Arsenal’s FAIL cake

May 6th, 2009

May taste bitter… It’s a moist sponge cake coated with disappointment and filled with false hope. Delicious.

Yah, real good now One likes pancakes, killing people and Marlboro cigarettes. The other is Arsenal’s goalkeeper. Thanks to Kipp for this one. Yah. More Shit Lookalikes

The best reaction to United’s walk in the park “It was 11 men against 11 babies. We never doubted ourselves.” Patrice Evra gets cocky after the event “It is the most disappointing night of my career. I felt the fans were really up for a big night and to disappoint people who stand behind the […]

Last night’s game reviewed in handy list format 1. What sound does a one-armed man clapping make? Or the sound of a massive anticlimax? I imagine it’s similar to the noise inside the Emirates after 11 minutes, when the game was effectively killed off by C-Ron’s 40-yard free-kick (great strike but Manuel Almunia should have […]

Gooners, look away now My 10 conclusions on the match coming soon…

Arsene Wenger is sad

May 6th, 2009

Twenty-five minutes into last night’s Champions League semi final, Arsenal’s manager faces the harsh reality that his team is not yet good enough to compete at the highest level.

What does Arsenal’s gaffer know that no one else does?

He’s a baby, baby BABY! A couple of days late on this, I know, but then we’ve only went live on Friday. Cut me some slack here. Oh, and enjoy your bank holiday weekend.

1. Liverpool are going to struggle. In their current form and up against PSV Eindhoven, Marseille and Atletico Madrid, it could spell trouble.

1. Liverpool have got problems. There is no fluidity or shape to the side and Rafa Benitez doesn’t seem to know how to turn the situation around.

Top Six: Arsene Wenger excuses

August 25th, 2008

With the startling news in the wake of defeat Fulham that Arsene Wenger doesn’t like excuses, we look at six of his best rational explanations

EMP-6272392.jpg

1.”I did not see it.”

Arsenal star embarrassed in restaurant Cesc Fabregas was dining out with two female friends at Soho club Studio Valbonne when his bill of almost £300 arrived. A witness said: “He tried one card, it failed. Then another. It failed again. After much faffing he sent an aide out to get cash.”

Who’s going where, and who’s not going anywhere… Baked-bean head Mikael Silvestre was reportedly undergoing a medical at Man City when he was informed that Arsene Wenger wished to sign him. ‘Silvestre immediately abandoned the medical and hurtled down the M1 to meet Gunners boss Wenger and discuss terms,’ The Sun claims. Hope he stuck […]

Arsenal off to a winning start in the Champions League Scrappy first goal, neat set-up by Walcott for the second. Job done, can’t see Twente coming back from that, although as I said in the post below, Arsenal were far from convincing. And apologies for the dire soundtrack – who thinks it’s a good idea […]
