Alex Song is too slow and doesn't know where he's going in London…

Stoke at The Emirates is tomorrow night’s fixture. The hoofers, long throw ins, the ‘in yer face’ tackles will all be in the tactics dished out by Tony Pullis before the game I’m sure, all we need to do is keep the ball on the ground, find the perfect pass, find the perfect finish and let football win the battle.

This fixture was due to take place a couple of months back when the snow lay all around and inevitably the match got called off. Our team were already at the ground and most just packed up and went on their short journey home. Not Alex Song though, he had a tough old-time…..

He went that way......

Here’s what happened to our big midfielder…..

Oh, it was unbelievable. We arrived at the stadium and everyone went to their cars and began to drive home. I got just outside and found myself stuck in a queue for about two hours.

Nobody was moving. I decided that, at that rate, I would be there all day – so I turned back, parked my car back in the stadium and thought ‘OK, maybe I’ll try to walk up the road a little way and jump into a taxi’.

I walked and didn’t see anything – kept walking, still nothing. I kept going and going, and there was no point turning back. So I walked all the way to Brent Cross, taking the same route as when I go by car because I didn’t know the side roads very well.

I walked for four or five hours, because you have to go quite slowly and carefully in the snow. I had my coat pulled up, but nobody recognised me along the way – it was a very strange afternoon.

I must get me a map of this place.........

When I arrived at Brent Cross I found a taxi company, but the guy said there were no cabs. I begged him to help and he said he’d call somebody at home but it would cost me double. I said ‘No problem, I’ll pay triple or whatever it takes, I just want to get home!

I waited about 20 minutes and the driver arrived, I jumped in the taxi and got home eventually! I’m never doing that again – if necessary I’ll sleep in the stadium! As soon as I got home I had a very hot bath and went straight to bed.

We were all pretty cheesed off about the game being called off that day but maybe we should have spared a thought for Old Billabong Song who was on a long, cold, adventurous and expensive journey home. …..

Still, he can afford it :)

I know Wenger doesn’t spend much but maybe he could at least stretch to a few A-Z’s of London…..

Two snippets about players:

Young midfielder Kyle Ebecilio has signed his first professional contract with the Club. Having snubbed the Chavs last summer to sign for us, he’s now turned 17 – he’s another up and coming exciting young midfielder. Talking of which Young Guns reported yesterday that Wenger has secured another young midfielder from the Barcelona Academy. His name is Jon Miquel Toral and he’s an under 16 International with Spain.

For the more details please go to Young Guns website.

    Why are the media claiming nasri will leave?Aw said nasri’s contract talks will be held in the summer and nasri has just echoed that.why don’t they get a life and leave us alone?

    February 22, 2011 at 9:35am

    Also whats up with the Daily mail?they had a headline that vermy suffered a setback but in the report they mention of no such thing and they even say he has made remarkable progress.i hope Aw says something on the matter later today.

  11. K-TR7

    We should also stop signing this La masia wonderkids.i want nothing more to do with that lot.

    February 22, 2011 at 9:40am

    Morning guys

    As much as I like getting up Barca’s noses, I really want us now to stop this getting young players from other clubs. I want to see more Jack’s coming through.

    Morning all,
    Poor old Song, i know the feeling when i’ve been uptown ask a local for directions and find you have to ask twenty before somone speaks English then find their as lost as you, a multi cultural country is not allways a big help

  14. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 9:42am

    I don’t mind us getting the kids KT as long as we are getting them for free and because they are so young now they will always count in the homegrown when they finally make it..

    But, what we also need is the club to buying the experience in the transfer windows to keep the ‘here and now’ side playing great football and winning…

    rico, judgeing by what i read in the papers of football stars and their private lives, if i was his wife i would be a little wary of a story like that , but thats me , but yes it made me smile

  21. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 9:54am

    My mate the Man u supporter was ecstatic when he heared the draw for the next round of the FA cup, my prediction was right, man u will become the team we need to see off this season, and i feel confident, as long as Wenger stops sodding about.

    Rico the Sun is reporting that but its not yet clear but I think its Pulis comments after Rambo’s injury

  30. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 10:17am

    I said to my mate, why do you think you will have an easy game then, he said, its not that, at least i get to see the first team play.

  31. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 10:18am

    Ah, thanks Erick..

  32. Erick

    Nz we thinking about you what a tradegy

  33. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 10:21am

    Steve where am from Mancs supporters are so annoying the live in denial and you can’t reason with them I just wear my Arsenal kit just to annoy them

  34. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 10:25am

    Once we get sunday out the way, both us and the mancs could still going for three trophies by the time the FA Cup fixture arrives… i can see both clubs playing under strength sides….

    however, if barca knock us out of the CL and the mancs go through, i think they will play an under strength side but we won’t…

  35. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 10:27am

    Erick, manc supporters are annoying where ever they live ;)

  36. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 10:31am

    Good idea Eric,

  37. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 10:34am

    Rico watever the situation Its the mancs we have to play at full strength we can’t loose to them at all

  38. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 10:35am

    I still stand by what i have always said, two changes every game and every body gets a rest, and we still have a strong first team, i dont understand how difficult that is to impliment.

  39. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 10:36am

    Guys am already thinking of Sunday I must admit. We need that trophy

  40. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 10:38am

    Steve I would go for four changes but Aw see’s it differently. We just need to mix it up the two teams we have are miles apart

  41. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 10:40am

    Erick, you and I know that, all the fans know that, but Wenger, now he’s a different story ;)

  42. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 10:45am

    Yeah Rico Aw is a different story.

  43. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 10:46am

    Hey weedman how’s you….? Good to see you, Steve I agree with the small changes per game and as long as the spine of teh team is strong then that for me is whats important…! I still say they far to pampered didnt have all these changes 30 yrs ago and compared to now the pitches were utter shit and far more exhausting to play on…!

  44. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 10:47am

    Eric, i always believe that anymore than two upsets the flow all over the pitch, but i would suffer that, over eight to ten, its not as though we have like for like.

  45. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 10:51am

    Sunday cannot come quick enough – but, we have to beat the hoofers first, thats a big big game – win that and we are one point behind the mancs….

  46. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 10:54am

    i just read on twitter that this young spaniards agent is Peps’s brother…..

    and the kid wants to play for england as his mother is english :)

  47. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 10:55am

    When you look at the game against Spains best, its games like that, that builds team spirit and bonding and trust. keep changeing the team and you lose the cohesion, i played for years, not at this level, but you do get used to what certain players are capable of doing, and the trust you have in one another ,massive changes are killing that, as every time you play is like starting all over again, thats why the great teams in the past have had the same players in, most of the time

  48. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 10:58am

    Am great GG man whats been happening? We have missed your banter and post Barca thoughts eh

  49. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 11:00am

    Steve I hear you and to be consistent we have to play the same team. Wath got a point the players are too pampered they are paid alot and they can rest when the season is over

  50. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 11:04am

    My sentiments exactly

  51. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 11:04am

    Steve – i think oliver was saying that too in his post yesterday, we all accept that rotation is needed but in 2’s not 10’s… its easy for one or two players to come into a system that is working well but ten, well thats just hideous in my opinion….

  52. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 11:05am

    And definately too pampered… you imagine old Cloughie at half time against Orient….

    He wouldn’t have minced his words i bet…. They would have all been told whata shower of ******* they were ;)

  53. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 11:07am

    I reckon four changes would be max but the spine must be strong and nucleus must be the same so its easy for the players to come in fit in and the style and system stays teh same also the tempo and the creativity..!. Ten at once has proved time and again that it doesnt work.

  54. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 11:09am

    Rico, one point behind the mancs and then lets see how they handle that knowing we right there waiting for them to cock up…!

  55. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 11:09am

    I have to pop off for an hour or two, catch up later….

  56. rico

    Spot on WATH, and they have a few tricky matches coming up….

    Twitchy bum time :)

    February 22, 2011 at 11:11am

    Hello HH, poor Song he walked all over London.

    Just saw the video of Jon Toral he looks good (he looks like a English too) nice control of the ball great shooter. Hope he joins Arsenal.

  58. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 11:12am

    A must win tomorrow may be two nil by half time. It must be said a 5nil or 6nil would be great to be honest with the chances we are creating its about time.

  59. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 11:17am

    Erick, we would be three up at h/t and then just coast the 2nd half no chance of 5 or 6 i don’t think, it will be a hard game Pulis hates us and has no time for Wenger either so they will def put it about 2moro as well.

  60. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 11:17am

    I am getting the feeling that AW is getting a bit pissed off with TV, introducing young Miquel at the weekend suggests to me that he is going in a different direction, he has seen how Kosi And Jd Have performed together so at present this is his starting two, i can see squilly edged out by Miquel and maybe the inclusion of another idealy a right footer, who else have we got

  61. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 11:18am

    Lata Rico, don’t buy the shop up…! no more shoes either…! You know what you lot are like :P

  62. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 11:20am

    Bartley is the one that comes to mind Steve but he’s obviously up at Rangers, not sure abt the other young centre backs still at the club. Think AW now realises he stuffed up big time not getting cover in for TV…!

  63. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 11:28am

    i don’t like to sound negative but arn’t we going a bit other the top with midfielders, is there a shortage of defenders or what, a right back of good standing in my eyes is a must, as i wouldnt trust Eboue to walk acros the street

  64. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 11:31am

    Cheers WATH forgot about him

  65. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 11:37am

    Who thinks TV will be back this season?

  66. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 11:37am

    Thing is Steve is AW finally gonna let a few of the not gonna make it midfielders leave in the summer if he looking at another 16yr old..? Know a few shef utd fella’s and they were impressed with Bartley, as was said last night he had a mare over the weekend against celtic but was played in midfield so hard to judge the fella based on that.

  67. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 11:38am

    Morning Will, I said end of Oct last year that I didnt think TV would play all season it went all to quiet and you just knew the problem was serious..!.

  68. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 11:40am

    Wages will answer that Wath, imposible to pay them all

  69. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 11:43am

    Will, i have already wrote TV off for this year, if he was to come back where would he go, Backup and another Lefty

  70. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 11:45am

    I just wish Wenger or Arsenal would come out with the truth and stop mugging us supporters off.

  71. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 11:46am

    Spot on Steve and seems we have far to many young ones on long contracts so they can’t leave on a bosman yet it costs us and arm n a leg to do that, law of averages means a few will go on to be very good somewhere but we can’t cry over spilt milk we cant keep them all its impossible…! least with sell on clauses in their contracts we get a few bob if they get sold on for decent money…!

  72. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 11:48am

    clicky gibbs tv miquel jack robin all them leftys and we play AA bendy nas song down the left

  73. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 11:50am

    This leads me to another topic what the hell is happening to Chamaka. I told Rico I don’t see him being better than Nikky eh

  74. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 11:51am

    Wath and a team is due a thrashing from us the Mancs may be…i wish..

  75. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 11:52am

    I’d like to play 442 with Jack infront of Clichy for a game just to see !!! Midfield of Nas on the right Cesc n Song in the middle, RVP n Theo up front…! Least that has balance, speed creativity and they will all put their foot into a tackle..!

  76. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 11:55am

    Perhaps the wages at that level is so low its worth our while to keep them in the hope one will save us twenty mill

  77. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 12:02pm

    lets face it squill and kosi are not the greatest defenders in the world but if we win the CC and qualifi for CL not a bad investment

  78. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 12:13pm

    i have said in the past about moveing certain players into positions they dont usually play we used to do that years ago in teams i played for, and in lots of ocasions we found it bought skills out in different players for the better, some players who are one footed and have played on that side for years was switched when needed to cover, and found they performed better coming in from that side, Premier players seem steriotyped to just one position, certainly hard to mark against

  79. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 12:20pm

    Wath not a bad Idea. Steve like you am waiting for the Barca replay we just need to be deadly on the break

  80. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 12:22pm

    Steve, Ajax do that to all their players.

  81. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 12:24pm

    Eric we have the talent to beat them we proved that, but have we got the belief at camp nou, i have my doubts with cesc.

  82. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 12:33pm

    not a bad idea then, we might find a right back without it costing us a Will

  83. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 12:34pm

    Doubt with Cesc and I didn’t want to bring it up may be its me reading too much into nothing. Villa and Xavi talked crap after the game.

  84. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 12:58pm

    How many times will we hear the words

    1) Good old fashioned English tackle
    2) Get in their faces/ get in their face tackle
    3) Letting them know he is there
    4) Industrial tackle

  85. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 1:09pm

    I have no doubts that the Barca team were truly devastated at loseing against us. To keep hearing that they are the best team ever from all sources all over the world, and then get beat by us, is crippling but to lose after being one up is mind shattering to them. confidence that builds up over time has just exploded in your face and not by luck, but by fantastic play, they believed that they were the only team that could play that good, and now they are trying to find reasons why it happened, we are in a superb position as long as we dont underestimate them, the longer we can hold them and perhaps add to our tally the more their heads will drop, tempers will frey and we must keep the proffesionalism and just play a tight game and take our chances and we can take them i have no doubts.

  86. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 1:09pm

    morning all…interesting post rico, especially as we got hit with some snow last night. we got it fairly mild – the midwest got much, much worse…

  87. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 1:16pm

    And the main one Will DONT LET THEM PLAY

  88. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 1:18pm

    Howdy Oliver :-) Will trying to justify a career threatening tackle is just so cheap and its only used when you play against us

  89. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 1:21pm

    Steve we have to be intelligent when we go to the nou camp, we might have to play without the ball if you know what I mean but we have to go at them and above all believe

  90. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 1:22pm

    Morning Oliver,
    Sorry to hear about your snow, do us a favour and keep it there. we have a few good games coming up and thats the last thing we need.Whats the time there

  91. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 1:24pm

    morning erick…well, it is stoke up next…i think there will be some lingering hard feelings – on both sides – from the shawcross – ramsey incident…but hopefully things will not degenerate into score-settling…

    i imagine we will put a full strength side out…i hope not to see any changes for the carling cup final either. i understand some may advocate that, but i do not – i think we need to play our best eleven for that particular match. we need to win the trophy, and we need out starting eleven to get the feeling of winning and lifting a trophy to carry through the second leg versus barcelona and subsequent matches.

  92. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 1:25pm

    Oliver. I am not sure if you saw it yesterday but I apologise for the way I behaved. You are right to have your own opinion on the player.

  93. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 1:26pm

    morning steve…it’s 8:24 am…roads were not that bad this morning…most local school either closed or two hours delay, depending upon the respective county…

  94. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 1:29pm

    will, no worries…rico and i exchanged emails over the course of the day, and she alerted me that you apologized, so i jumped back on the site and responded under yesterday’s post…

    squad quality and depth are certainly an emotional issue with us. and the player who’s merits we debated yesterday is one of the more polarizing figures at our club…at the end of the day, we all want our team and players to do well and win things – that is the most important thing…

  95. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 1:30pm

    Eric i agree100% we must not lose our tempers no matter what happens no Diabys, but we do have to work harder off the ball, although we defended better than i have seen all season, we are not giving our holders of the ball enough options, Barca are the best in the world at this art and i dont expect us to be as good but we must step it up and keep it up, they tired and we capitalised on it, they wont tire next time unless we make them tired

  96. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 1:32pm

    I want to dominate with a passion bordering on insanity and I don’t want players I think are passengers who will keep us at 4th place level with the odd semi-final.

    I was players who are as driven as I am for success and to be the club side everyone wants to avoid.

  97. Erick

    February 22, 2011 at 1:35pm

    Oliver spot on winning is everything and why not start on sunday to be honest we have never needed a cup the way we want that CC

    bloody knicks…i am happy we finally got carmelo, but we allowed ourselves to get fleeced here – gave up way too much considering we had most of the leverage in these negotiations…i hope arsenal don’t go about player acquisition like this.

  100. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 1:46pm

    will, agree…i think we all want that…

    morning stv..

    All teams have players that some fans consider not good enough, get a squad where all the players are first rate and it causes problems inside the team, we have players who think their top notch but are not and the manager does not move them on, a balance is one of the hardest things to achieve and although i understand your frustrations Will, i dont think the problem will ever be solved. but were a lot closer than a lot of others, hence our position

    February 22, 2011 at 1:52pm

  109. W.A.T.H

    Stoke boss Tony Pulis and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger have decided against holding their usual pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League clash against Emirates Stadium.
    The Gunners have endured a torrid relationship with Tony Pulis’s team since their promotion to the Premier League and have gone down to two defeats to the Potters since 2008.
    Daily Mirror journalist John Cross revealed the strange news this morning, admitting that it’s both “mystifying and disappointing” as to why neither manager wants to take part in the conferences.
    Wenger welcomes back Theo Walcott for tomorrow’s game, who has been passed fit despite a hamstring scare against Leyton Orient at the weekend.

    I’ll wait and wait for the injuries, punishments and “indigestion” football, caused by an overload of games in recent months and the two that follow, do not take freshness, clarity and class to the game and Arsenal players.
    What I said earlier, you seem to be based in Barcelona but in the last match against Bilbao, rolled up their sleeves and pulled by Messi won the game. And to earn enough to score one more goal than your opponent. Simple, right? I personally would rather win by a goal difference in all games, exceptional views of what to do, provide 60% of possession and lament the poles, the hardness of the referees or opponents. Reduce the football to something simple at this point in time, right?

  115. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 3:18pm

    Ain’t that just great, no RVP or Kos for 2moro night and maybe won’t make sunday…! Just fuckin brilliant…!

  116. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 3:19pm

    I am so reassured to know we got squilli to come in as cover……………….

  117. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 3:32pm

    Exactly Wath.

    JM, you are right mate.

  118. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 3:50pm

    Wath, just watched the interview, Wengers lieing, He is definitely going for it all guns blazing Sunday, he wants to make sure he has rvp and kosi for sunday, we could see young Miquel back in the mix for tomorow, but robin will not be risked Chamakh will step up or bendy we can risk them. tactics. i know the points are important, but he wont risk this chance of a cup. i never thought i would see the day that we pulled all the stops out for the Carling cup how times change

  119. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 3:56pm

    so we’ll have squillaci starting against stoke? not good…and does he start nik or chamakh? nik scored our equalizer against at the brittania in last season’s contentious game…but on the other hand, we have to get chamakh going again – perhaps starting him with a midfield containing cesc and jack, with samir and theo in support…i think he is more likely to score with these players – he will certainly get better service – rather than song/denilson/rosicky. not an easy call and we have to hope that both kos and robin will miss only tomorrow match.

  120. agirlagunner

    February 22, 2011 at 4:12pm

    Boo!! Hello, all. A lot of comments to catch up on. Back in a bit. :)

    interesting post, rico! :)

  121. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 4:14pm

    A good chance to try JD with the new boy, i have taken a shine to him as well

  122. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 4:18pm

    Boo – what have i missed….

  123. agirlagunner

    February 22, 2011 at 4:18pm

    I suspect Robin will be unleashed on Sunday, and Stoke aren’t exactly the team where we want Mr.Brittlebones playing. ;)

    Miquel gave a good account of himself v. Orient, so let’s hope he starts tomorrow… Squidgy worries me.

  124. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 4:28pm

    morning agag…i am not sure i want to see miquel against stoke – he may have the height and looks a good prospect, but i thought he was still raw…stoke are a far better side than orient and will certainly put pressure on our defence. as little as i think of squillaci, i am not convinced miquel is ready for this…

    regardless of what any of us feel, i find it difficult to see a scenario will arsene would start miquel ahead of squil…

  125. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 4:33pm

    Hi all,

    i don’t think JD and Squlli together have lost a game yet have they?? Its Kos and Squilli that doesn’t work….

  126. Steve Palmer

    February 22, 2011 at 4:34pm

    I think he will rico, not long to see,

  127. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 4:39pm

    hi rico – i think you are correct, jd and squil have not lost yet together…i think this is more to do with jd, than squil himself…while i think squil is generally a liability, i don’t think tomorrow’s fixture is a good time to give miquel some more experience. it is going to be difficult, i am under no illusions that stoke will “bring it”, and i think we will need experience and composure in the back. squil may not necessarily be known for these attributes, but i think alongside jd he won’t hurt us too much…

  128. agirlagunner

    February 22, 2011 at 4:43pm

    Hello, oliver. How are you? For a veteran defender, Squlli has been sooo disappointing lately; that’s why I wouldn’t mind seeing the new boy. You’re right though, Squlli is more likely equipped for the strong-arm tactics of Stoke and would start ahead of Miquel.

  129. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 4:45pm

    I’m banking on JD having a cracking game Steve and i’m with oliver on the Miquel, Stoke will be a tough task and i think its a bit too early for the young un…

  130. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 4:55pm

    I am not that excited about having Squil facing Stoke.

  131. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 4:58pm

    Can’t say i am either Will but he’s all we have really….

  132. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 4:59pm

    RvP and Kos are surely just being rested for sunday….

  133. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 5:08pm

    I suspect that too rico.

  134. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 5:12pm

    I hope we are right KT….

  135. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 5:13pm

    Chamakh’s confidence is shot.bendy is just well bendy so i don’t know who Aw will opt to start.

  136. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 5:13pm

    Yeah they are both being rested from the butchers of Stoke.

  137. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 5:19pm

    Probably AA KT…

  138. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 5:19pm

    AA is playing better.he will surely start against stoke or the CC final.

  139. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 5:20pm

    Will, I dread it if i’m honest, i wouldn’t mind the snow falling at lunchtime tomorrow 6 inches around The Ems and the game gets called off….

  140. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 5:22pm

    Rico one of chamakh/bendy will start at CF tomorrow.

  141. agirlagunner

    February 22, 2011 at 5:22pm

    Hey, KT, rico! :) After Rambo, I really don’t put anything past the thugs of Stoke.

  142. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 5:24pm

    Rico so long as we keep the ball and go direct we’ll batter them.they aren’t so good away from home.

  143. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 5:30pm

    Squil is going to get battered and bullied.

  144. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 5:30pm

    Hi agag.i want us to smash them.Pulis saw first hand what we are capable of doing against barca.they’ll not be relishing coming to play us at this time when we’re peaking.we need to make a statement tomorrow which will develop a fear factor to all visitors of the Emirates in the coming months.lets start winning games before they even start.

  145. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 5:33pm

    Will kos has become very vital to us as the barca game showed.let squilli get battered.he and djourou am sure will do fine.

  146. Joaquim Moreira

    February 22, 2011 at 5:34pm

    Why do not put Squillaci centre forward? He scores goals!!!!!

  147. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 5:39pm

    These are the sort of games that diaby usually delivers blinders.

  148. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 5:42pm

    Yeh blindingly useless KT ;-)

    Squilli will play noway you want Miguel getting bullied by fuller and Carew…!.

  149. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 5:44pm

    I’d play Bendy up front through the middle purely because we still looking for the “real” Chamakh who was abducted in October by Aliens…! So only choice is to play Bendy.

  150. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 5:47pm

    I knew id get you there WATH.you’re like a diaby magnet.

  151. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 5:49pm

    You don’t want a kid playing against Stoke, they would kill him.

  152. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 5:50pm

    Chamakh for me then KT

  153. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 5:51pm

    WATH i guess so too.bendy is more likely to score a goal than chamakh.i wouldn’t trust chamakh to tap in the ball from 5 yards right now.

  154. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 5:51pm

    Hi agag, all well with you?

  155. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 5:55pm

    Im not sure why people are considering Miquel.i saw nothing special from him.fuller and jones will bully him out of London.squilli and JD will do fine.JD makes anyone look good.

  156. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 5:55pm

    Diaby KT, he’s either banned or on the medical table ;)

  157. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 5:59pm

    Diaby will become a top player rico if injuries give him a break.i’ll stand by that.

  158. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 6:01pm

    I wish diabolical had a magnet that sent him someone else…! ;-)

    I’d consider Gibbs in front of Clichy as well for 2moro…! possibly Eboooie in front of Sagna as well least then a few more of our creative players escape the chance of getting kicked to shit and also Gibbs and Ebooie both cross well, ok well Gibbs does, Ebooie sometimes..! ;-)

  159. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 6:01pm

    Diaby would be good if he learned to concentrate

  160. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 6:02pm

    I’ll be happy for him to become a great player KT as long as its miles away from The Arsenal…! I think you may be standing for quite a while !!

    theyve prob got niggles and they could play if they wanted to but v stoke wenger doesnt want them to ;)

  172. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 6:53pm

    The CC is the most important game in our season so far in my book. Yes Barca was up there, as is every PL game etc BUT – get those hands on a trophy, get the feel of being a winner and take that through with them in every game from Sunday onwards…

    I just want us to get through the game without injuries, and come 10pm sit just one point behind old red nose lot!

  173. JonJon

    February 22, 2011 at 6:55pm

    we still need three points but i think we’ll be ok v stoke..
    who replaces them
    squidge or miquel
    nikki or chamakh??

  174. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 6:57pm

    i agree rico – the carling cup is the most lightly regarded of the four competitions we are in, but we have already come so far that i think falling at the final hurdle will have a worse effect than being eliminated earlier. we have to close this out and win something…culture, values, and playing style are all wonderful, but the point of all this is to win things…

  175. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 6:57pm

    Did I hear blog war…? Who’s for the fire then…? ;-)

  176. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 6:57pm

    I did end with sit 1 point off red nose lot jj ;)

    Squilli and Chamakh/AA for me….

  177. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 6:58pm

    jj, squil in defense and chamkah to start of front, with nik first off the bench. that is how i would play it tomorrow…

  178. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 7:00pm

    I dread the thought of us losing at the final hurdle oliver, heads will go right down…

    If we have our first eleven i think we should do it but i’m scared about tomorrow, like i said earlier, i’d be happy if the snow fell and it was called off again….

  179. rico

    hes a nobody wath..
    he reads HH all the time but never comments and then slags everyone off on another blog to gain respect..hes abit of a tit…no blog war though..theres only him who gives a shit..nobody else is bothered
    one of those jeremys and jemima’s who never attends aways games and fucks off 20 mins before the end at home
    came on here a few times and has held a grudge cos oliver schooled him on more than one occasion..

  181. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 7:09pm

    i agree oliver
    jd and squidge with chamkaka up top..lets hope he bangs a couple in..but i got a feeling AW will go with fluffy flip flops..he seems more confident at the mo

  183. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 7:09pm

    Ah well it’s nice that Oliver taught him what’s what…! Nice….!

  186. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 7:14pm

    I’d def not go with Chamakh the bloke just doesnt want the ball, he’s scared, he’s a walking confidence wreck…!

  187. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 7:15pm

    jj, when was this????

  188. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 7:24pm

    and i also have a gut feeling that arsene will go with nik ahead of chamakh…nik is at least showing signs of life – this sunday afternoon notwithstanding – recently. plus, nik was the one that pulled us back to 1-1 at the brittania, in a fixture that stoke looked as though they would roll over us…

    i no longer know what the deal with chamakh is…he just looks lost out there. confidence looks shot and he looks as though he has absolutely no idea of how to pull himself out of this funk…i would start him with a better, more balanced midfield than we had on sunday. i have to hope that better service will see him start scoring again…

  189. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 7:27pm

    anyone besides me becoming an fc copenhagen supporter for a couple of hours here? if they can somehow manage to win this tie over the two legs, szczesny’s tweet should be quite interested indeed…

  190. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 7:29pm

    If you think back a little Oliver Chamakh has been clean through a few times in previous games and chosen to cut back and pass, he has completely lost confidence and bottle…! The bloke needs to score a few goals in a game that we should win with or without him scoring dare I say the Orient replay..? We need him on form again for the last 2 months for sure..!

  191. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 7:30pm

    Can you imagine what Chez would say next Oliver ;-) Maybe AW has had a word though and told him to tone it down a little. . . . .

    when you had your debate with him he called himself joshua..
    buts hes used jacob and jason too on here..

    anyway enough of him i dealt with it

    come on kopenhagen ;)

  195. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 7:34pm

    Oh shit I forgot abt real v Lyon….. thanx KT will watch that for a bit and keep peeking at the chavs score and also to keep an eye on the mighty Blackpool…!

  196. K-TR7

    February 22, 2011 at 7:35pm

    Oliver copenhagen are quite good.i watched them at the camp nou against barca when Ndoye gave the barca backline no end of problems.at home they went a goal down to barca but equalised 40 seconds later.if the chavs go sulking there they’ll lose.

  197. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 7:36pm

    wath, agree…perhaps he is over-thinking things. the chamakh i remember from the start of this season finished instinctively. now it seems like he is dwelling over every move, as if afraid to make a mistake. i am hoping it is just confidence and nothing else. to the best of my knowledge, nobody has really gotten on his back about his worrying form. i thought he was very jaded and in dire need of a rest as november became december…now he has had that rest – and more – and looks a shell of the player that started the season…

    unless there are other problems that we don’t know about, the only way to get him going again is to play him through this. if worked for robin and it looks like arshavin and nik are coming around as well…the problem is that results have to take priority.

  198. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 7:36pm

    Ah that complete knob…….!!! I had a little run in with him JJ…… Doesnt like to be told he’s wrong, came on the one day and spoke utter shit and vanished when he was told he was a plum…!

    February 22, 2011 at 7:38pm

    The other thing Oliver he started off by playing on the last defender and then for some reason started to fall back and not play off the last defender at all, since then he has gone to pot…! Him or Wenger…???

  201. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 7:40pm

    jj, i thought he used “jacob” here? that was the cat i had the debate over rotation about, right? why use different names?

  202. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 7:42pm

    k, i’ve not seen fc copenhagen myself. other than brondby, i know little about danish sides – but you have credit with me, so if you say they are a good side, i am hopeful…

  203. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 7:44pm

    wath, i think all this is symptomatic of a player completely bereft of confidence…we need him, so hopefully he can turn it around.

  204. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 7:48pm

    Agreed Oliver we need him playing well in the run in and confident so we can rely on him and not all on RVP’s shoulders…!

    February 22, 2011 at 7:49pm

    oliver, re jacob, joshuha etc – he is just a twurp who wants a ‘fight’ – he left here with his tail between his legs…..

  207. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 7:52pm

    ah, that’s right – spuddies and blackpool…ollie was refreshing when blackpool arrived on the scene and got off to a great start…now i am starting to find him a bit obnoxious…his side has plunged down the table, yet he still seems to have an opinion on all and sundry. he would probably be better served to drop the social commentary and focus on getting his side out of their rut…a win tonight would certainly be a good start…

    perhaps i am being harsh on ollie, but for me, his act is wearing thin…

  208. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 7:52pm

    chamakh needed that tap in to go in, i think his confidence is rock bottom but he’s got it, he got us through the start of the season – he’s another AA….

  209. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 7:53pm

    tap in against LO i mean…

  210. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 7:55pm

    yep…he certainly helped carry us through the early portion of the season when we had so many injuries. that is but one of the many reasons i refuse to pile on regarding him – he showed us he is a good player and important part of our squad, he just needs to rediscover his form…

  211. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 8:00pm

    I am not having a go at him Oliver I just want the real Chamakh to hurry up and come back…!

    JJ, bit harsh fella, I like what Holloway says and 99% of what he says is spot on, he dont kiss arse either and fair play to him, he also tries to play footie and gotta hold ya hands up on that as well with the money they have available.

  212. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 8:02pm

    oliver – i really like chamakh but how many players come to the PL and then play for the first three months non stop – thats pretty much what chamakh had to do due to injuries…

    with him we have seen he has form to rediscover, just like AA – it will click back again and it may just be when we need him as we head towards the seasons end….

  213. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 8:05pm

    I’m amssive fan of IH, refreshing, honest, tells it as it is and plays footie regardless of the score – his side to play thug football either which is unusual for a side fighting for survival…. and having come from the Championship….

  214. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 8:07pm

    wath, i did not suggest that anyone was having a go at chamakh – i just made that point that i intend to refrain, regardless of how bad his form is/becomes…

    it was, however, me and not jj that made the point about ollie…perhaps i am being harsh on him, but i do remember his being fawning towards red nose after their recent match with united…methinks he talks too much…and when his side is sitting just outside the relegation zone, he has more important things to worry about…

  215. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 8:09pm

    blah…anelka…

  216. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 8:12pm

    Sorry JJ me bad thought it was you not Oliver…. Maybe you don’t see all that Holloway says Oliver but he seems to be stop on the money with most of what he says, he says it like it is and the FA don’t like it and as Rico says his team plays footie they never try kick anyone up in the air and on his shoestring budget think he deserves a lot of credit.
    My comments on Chamakh are all based on where and why has the fella turned into a wobbling jelly…? He was great and now looks like a zombie…! All points that we have raised must be an issue but cannot see how a player can go from being so good to being so bad…!

    i like holloway wath..
    have you been on the GG? ;)

  218. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 8:16pm

    wath, understood…and i certainly admire the way blackpool come to play, don’t compromise and try to impose their style and will regardless of the cost…i too enjoyed listening to ollie when the season first started…but now it is just wearing somewhat thin to me…i concede that i am being harsh on him…

  219. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 8:18pm

    I just think Holloway is like a kid in a sweet shop and he’s enjoying his moment in the PL….

    Has Anelka scored oliver? I’m not fussed if the Chavs go on in the CL, when we play them in the final we’ll destroy them, its the mancs i want to see KO’d….

    Wouldn’t sky sports just hate that ;)

  220. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 8:20pm

    well…blackpool just took the lead on the spuddies…

  221. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 8:22pm

    yeah, anelka scored…chelsea 1-0 up in denmark…

  223. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 8:29pm

    Oliver I think Holloway genuinely loves his football and hates being hard done by and goes mad when sees and injustice, he unlike many others says what he thinks though, that fine from the FA regarding his team selection was a case in point and to be fair utter bollox…!. I also think the media like winding him up as they know he will say something !! You know they love a story..!

    Go on the blackpool ;-)

  224. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 8:30pm

    ollie or no ollie, blackpool are winning now, so i think we all support them today!

    Go Blackpool :lol:

  226. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 8:37pm

    Re: Chamakh. Do you think he has lost that natural strikers instinct and wants to be one of the passing boys?

  227. rico

    February 22, 2011 at 8:40pm

    good question Will – and is that something that wenger takes out of their game…..

    i remember when rosicky used to shoot on sight but even he doesn’t do that anymore…

    denilson though, now he’ll always have a pop from distance

  228. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 8:43pm

    Will, you cant take away an instinct !!!! For some reason he just seems to of stopped doing what was working for him and as a consequence has completely lost form…! Rico plz refrain was using that crab like persons name…!

  229. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 8:44pm

    will, i don’t think so…it’s possible that it has been coached out of him, or is being asked to play in a fashion that negates those attributes…but i think – without knowing what is inside the man’s head – it is more a confidence issue. part of the problem from sunday is that i think he and nic don’t combine well together. that is one reason i am hopeful that playing with robin/theo/samir/cesc/jack will see him get off the schneid…

  230. Will

    February 22, 2011 at 8:45pm

    Yeah, that is exactly it. They all seem to play 5 a side football. When Chamakh first came along he shot on sight, headed like an old fashioned centre forward but now he wants to get involved in the build up play.

    This is why I am crying out for a clinical, greedy striker who is not interested in passing the ball. Why I said someone like Ian Wright or even Defoe.

  231. W.A.T.H

  232. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 8:47pm

    woo hoo…blackpool 2-0 up..

  233. oliver

    February 22, 2011 at 8:49pm

    blackpool folded a 2-0 hand at home against man united a few weeks ago…hopefully no repeat here.

  234. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 8:51pm

    With a huge helping hand from the ref Oliver who failed to give them the most blatant of penalties which would of made it 3-0. . . . In all honesty Blackpool are great going forward but just as bad at defending, their best way to defend is just to keep going forward and scoring…! Hopefullt 2 or 3 more would be great ;-)

  236. JonJon

    February 22, 2011 at 8:53pm

    and the mighty orange army roll on ;)

    re chamakh..i dont thinks hes ever been that much of a lethal finisher..even in france he linked up the play with gourcuff
    he gets more chances in arsenal shirt though thats why he was banging the goals in early doors i just think he got tired and then lost his form…
    think its more a confidence thing..he’s never ben clinical always more of a channel runner and a target man

  237. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 8:56pm

    JJ, not for one minute am I saying he clinical far from it but his game is the channels and playing off the last defender which he has stopped doing completely, as Oliver says is that AW saying drop off and hold up play or get more involved and its against his natural game??? what ever it is he needs to get back to what is instinctive and whats his natural game and then the goals and the play will return.

  238. JonJon

    February 22, 2011 at 8:58pm

    February 22, 2011 at 10:14pm

    As for your thoughts on Chamakh and his form, everybody wanting Van Persie back as soon as posible has brought Chamakhs form down, chamakh has done us proud and we have let him down in my opinion, in our rush to include VP, he was doing the buisness for us and has more or less been pushed out to make way, look at his passing compared to bendy and vp very seldom gives the ball away.

  261. JonJon

    February 22, 2011 at 10:20pm

    lol wath they can bring back some of those shirts with the fake boobies
    they all a bunch of tits anyway

    night ricolicous..

    chamakh will be back hes just lacking confidence..
    its a result of what steve said really..he did need the rest.. a few goals and hes back in business

  262. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 10:34pm

    I think if you look at the games Steve Chamakh was off form before RVP came back and it was noticable that he wasnt leading the line or playing off the last defender anymore. I know I keep saying that but he was direct and ran the channels well and made the centre backs give aways fouls pens etc and its because he didnt drop off at all and then all of a sudden bang, he drops off he’s not direct and his game goes to pot. Is it becasue AW asked him to change or did he talk himself into thinking he was tired not playing well..???? who knows…! I know I want him back to how he was the start of the season cos he was a handful for defenders…!

  263. W.A.T.H

    February 22, 2011 at 10:36pm
