Wilshere out! Great day for the Ladies and finally this painful season will soon be over!!

Well Done to Arsenal Ladies and of course to Laura Harvey, the  Arsenal manager for winning the FA Cup yesterday.

What a day it was and what a performance by our Ladies – they truly deserve the hangover they will all have this morning. :)

Another FA Cup Trophy in the bag and a massive confidence builder for the rest of their season in the WSL.

The game was all but over by half-time thanks to two wonderful goals scored by Kim Little and Julie Fleeting.

The first was scored within fifteen minutes; Kim Little weaved her way through the Bristol defence and finished with a clinical shot into the bottom left hand corner of the Bristol goal.

Were you watching Nikki B????

Then on the half an hour mark, Julie Fleeting saw a powerful header beat the Bristol keeper, Siobhan Chamberlain. Arsenal took their foot off the gas in the second half but remained comfortable until the end.

Laura Harvey was born just down the road from the Ricoh Arena in Bulkington and spent six years at Coventry City Ladies as a player, this triumph will hold even greater significance.

Victory gives the 31-year-old her second trophy since taking charge midway through last season and brings Arsenal’s tally of trophy’s to an incredible total of 33 since their formation in 1987.

Jemma Rose and Fleeting had chances early on and maybe both should have done better but nerves can be cruel. Little settled those nerves with a wonderful finish and Arsenal didn’t really look back from that moment.

Rachel Yankey burst down the left and then set up Jordan Nobbs, but Bristol’s defence blocked her chance. The same thing happened to prevent Fleeting from nicking a goal after some great work by Ellen White. Arsenal had finally settled and in the mood for this Final.

Fleeting then saw another effort hit the crossbar and only a wonderful one-handed save kept out White’s low header seconds later. It wasn’t long before Fleeting did score; she rose highest in the area to head home a quality cross from Niamh Fahey that only Gael Clichy could dream of delivering into the area – from six yards out, Chamberlain had no chance.

White and Fleeting again went close with headers and Bristol’s Helen Bleazard blasted a shot over the crossbar from 35 yards out.

Half Time and the game already seemed over!

The second half saw a Bleazard free kick brush the top of Emma Byrne’s cross-bar and that was pretty much it for the second half. Bristol enjoyed a tad more possession but never really looked like scoring one, let alone the three goals they need to win this final.
Arsenal looked comfortable after ten minutes into this game, would anyone dare write them off from winning the first WSL Trophy up for grabs??

Well Done, a good game of football and a great win for our girls….

On to today and our final game of the season.

Who knows what will happen, the way things have gone we could be looking at another battering couldn’t we…

But, something makes me think we won’t – I actually believe we will end the season with a win!

Whatever happens, it shouldn’t change Arsene Wengers plans for this transfer window should it?

I just hope the away fans get to see a great performance and a win to take home with them…..

Can’t let the day go by without the rumours:

Bayern Munich are to offer £10M for Sagna, Barca are to offer £50M for Fabregas but Man City will offer £58M – Clichy and Nasri have been told to sign new contracts of be sold, we are still after Samba and a whole load of players are leaving, incuding Vela, Bendtner, Eboue, Rosicky and Arshavin…

Don’t you just love this time of year 😉

Finally, The Sunday Mirror report that Stuart Pearce has at last seen sense and will not include Jack Wilshere in the under 21 squad, that is good news for Arsenal.

Have a good day all…..

I’ll be cheering on Ian Holloway’s boys – I really hope they do something special today and we see them in the EPL next season….

    Great news re Jack Wilshere, he can now have a proper rest in the summer…

  5. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 9:32am

    I read an Aw interview last night where he said he has identified 3 targets and will pay ‘whatever it takes’ to get them but will not pay over the odds.he also spoke about how English players are overpriced but there is one in particular he is interested in and we’ll have to wait and see how it turns out…i hope he isn’t screwing us again and that those 3 targets aren’t kids.

  6. K-TR7

    Very glad rico.its about time we woke up from this nightmare.

    Wenger confirmed we won’t sign a GK.

  8. Erick

    Morning guys, been a poor Season for the lads hope the ladies can inspire them

  9. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 9:40am

    He’s certainly talking the talk Kt, I don’t think they will be kids as he’s already confirmed he wants to add experience..

  10. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 9:41am

    Samir Nasri (hamstring), Gael Clichy (hamstring) and Abou Diaby (calf) all face late tests ahead of the trip across the capital. Cesc Fabregas (thigh) certainly misses out while Johan Djourou (ankle) is hoping to be back.

  11. Erick

    Until I see it on dot com am nt getting excited at all

  12. rico

    Morning Erick, I hope they can kick on and win the WSL now :)

  13. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 9:45am

    Same here Erick, i don’t think it will be too long though before something is on there – the way wenger is talking so freely i wouldn’t be surprised if a deal or two is done already..

    normally he is so quiet about his intentions….

  14. Erick

    May 22, 2011 at 9:47am

    Rico am tired of Aw, he has to do everything to win me back same mistakes for 6 years unacceptable

  15. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 9:49am

    Wenger has also issued an ultimatum to nasri and clichy regarding their contracts.he is clearly telling them to sign up or f*** off!

  16. Erick

    May 22, 2011 at 9:49am

    Rico we need fired up players no more baby sitting

  17. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 9:49am

    The fans are thinking the same as you Erick, apart from those who can see no bad in the man regardless and some of those have changed their opinion…

    I just want the old wenger back, not the one he’s been over the last few years….

  18. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 9:50am

    Mambo erick?mbona kupotea hivyo?…

  19. Erick

    May 22, 2011 at 9:51am

    KT atleast we can get some cash from them…Nasri been poor from December

  20. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 9:53am

    Rico it wouldn’t surprise me at all to hear we’ve already signed 2 of those players and will be announced early June.lets hope the old cunning fox is making a return.

  21. Erick

    May 22, 2011 at 9:53am

    KT sio kwa ubaya ni kuhustle jo kutafuta pesa mtu wangu, hakuna kazi hapa Kenya so lazima uweke bidii

  22. Will

    May 22, 2011 at 9:54am

    Looking at his face and body language, I think Wenger feels let down hugely by certain players and I think this will be a huge transfer window.

  23. Erick

    May 22, 2011 at 9:55am

    You guys seem convinced the real Aw is back…am waiting for his action both in the transfer market and next season 60 th minutes subs got to stop

  24. Erick

    May 22, 2011 at 9:57am

    Morning Will may be he is getting too old for this

  25. Will

    May 22, 2011 at 9:58am

    I am not sure Erick, I think he is angry.

  26. Erick

    May 22, 2011 at 10:00am

    If Lansbury and Frimpong are to come in I dn’t see alot of players coming in may be more have to leave

  27. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 10:01am

    Hi Will, i’m convinced the old fox will shock us this summer in a good way 😉

    Maybe Stan has given him the rockt up his jacksie he needed – i know i sound like a broken old record but i’m not expecting loads of big names, just one and the rest with big hearts….

  28. Erick

    May 22, 2011 at 10:01am

    I hope so Will, we have been angry for 6 years.

  29. Will

    May 22, 2011 at 10:01am

    I can see three top class, experienced players coming in.

  30. Erick

    May 22, 2011 at 10:02am

    Rico last summer you had the same feeling eh

  31. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 10:03am

    I like what he’s supposed to have told Nasri and Clichy, ‘sign or be sold’….

    I’m actually quite looking forward to the transfer window now… :)

  32. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 10:07am

    I also don’t think cesc will leave just yet.barca are rumoured to be after Rossi who will cost them €30 mil.i don’t think they are really interested in cesc.

  33. Erick

    May 22, 2011 at 10:09am

    The midfield is where we alot of numbers may be we won’t see any signing but we need a defender and a Striker..Nikky can sod off

  34. Will

    May 22, 2011 at 10:10am

    I think we will see one top class central defender, one midfielder and one striker.

  35. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 10:11am

    Marcel Schmelzer to replace Clichy??

  36. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 10:14am

    Suggestion is that Barca have been told they can have him Kt, £50M…

    Erick – i don’t think we’ll get a midfielder either, we should but with Frimpong and Coquelin coming in….

  37. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 10:15am

    Ronaldo finished the season with 40 la liga goals and a total of 52 goals in all competitions.what a player!

  38. kelsey

    May 22, 2011 at 10:18am

    Morning rico.

    Had a great emotional time last night,and as you rightly say a big well done to our ladies.Ladies football has really progressed and to get 13ooo for the Final was fantastic.

    on to today. Who knows which Arsenal tam will turn up.

    looking through the “rumour mill” IF Wenger really means what he says it will either be an admission that project youth has run it’s time or he really is going to have a massive clearout.My question is that something has been demanded from the BoD for him to change his approach plus the fact that we actually have money to spend for a change.

    I honestly think cesc will be off if the valuation is met by Barca.

    However to make wholesale changes just won’t happen and if it did it would take time for a new squad to gell together.

    We have IMO a few outstanding players in Cesc,Vermaelen,Nasri,RVP and Sagna and then we have those who are the raw recruits in Wilshere,Ramsey and I will include Kos (as I think he has improved dramatically as the season has progressed .)
    Djourou has been with us for years and like Diaby and Rosicky are injury prone and unfortunately so is RVP.

    It doesn’t sit well with me that after the horse has bolted, certain players say they have let the manager down, but hardly a mention of the fans.
    These guys are some of the highest paid in the league and it is their duty to give 100% every game.That leads to the question were is the motivation to win .is it Wenger’s fault or are they just a load of prima donnas who are guided by their dreaded agents to disrespect loyalty to the club and it’s fans and let everything revolve around how much money they can earn regardless of effort.
    I am falling out with my love of football as what is happening now can’t be sustained, and the paying fans in the main are on wage freeze and it will continue in the UK as in other parts of the world for a number of years.

  39. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 10:18am

    If he tries harder next season he could be as good as Nikki B…

    To be fair Kt, that league is not the strongest outside the top two, even nikki could score over there…

  40. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 10:18am

    Rico barca don’t have 50mil.they have much more pressing issues to use their cash on rather than blowing out their entire kitty on a sub.they have also promoted Thiago Alcantara to the first team to be xavi’s understudy.

  41. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 10:21am

    But still rico 51 goals is an excellent return.

  42. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 10:23am

    Exactly Kt, so they cannot afford him – but maybe a player/cash deal will be struck… Messi maybe 😉

    For sure it’s a great return, he’s a great player – we’ll see if he scores as many in the PL next season when he’s at Citeh…

  43. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 10:25am

    Morning kelsey, emotional, but wonderful i hope?

    Chesney and Robin mentioned the fans i think, saying they understood why we were all disapointed etc…

  44. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 10:27am

    Re the players comments etc, i’m glad that some of them have spoken out, shame they couldn’t see this coming before though and spoke about it in house, they should have been able to use the way they all felt after the CC final to wake themselves up and raise their game…

    Not just fade away, heartless….

  45. Will

    May 22, 2011 at 10:29am

    The Cesc rumours start at two times in the year. In the summer and whenever we get them in the champions league.

  46. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 10:33am

    I don’t think i have ever seen a team collapse in such a catastrophic fashion.it also happened last season but not to this extent.surely Arsene can see we need experienced players for squeaky bum time?

  47. Will

    May 22, 2011 at 10:35am

    I think you are right KT and just going by his body language, I think he will go out and get the players we need.

  48. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 10:36am

    I think Arsene may sign a LB.i get the feeling Gibbs has been playing to test if he is ready to be 1st choice and that clichy isn’t really injured.

  49. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 10:41am

    Mesut özil has 25 assists for Madrid this season.11 of those are Ronaldo’s.

  50. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 10:43am

    Marcel Schmelzer

    I posted his name earlier, what do you think of him??

  51. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 10:53am

    Rico he is a very good player.he was part of Dortmund’s record breaking defence.i saw him mark robben out of the game when they met Bayern.he is in the Bundesliga team of the season too.he is very energetic like clichy and can also play like a winger.he also played virtually all their games showing he isn’t a crock.he had 3 assists too.he is worth a punt.

  52. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 10:54am

    Popping off for a bit, back shortly…

  53. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 11:02am

    Hleb must be really regretting his decision to leave us.since he left he has gone from winning the treble with Barca as a sub to getting relegated with b’ham on the bench…

  54. Erick

    May 22, 2011 at 11:13am

    I hear noises Titus Bramble to Arsenal, reliable source what yo think?

  55. K-TR7

    May 22, 2011 at 11:28am

    Erick i wouldn’t be happy if we signed him.he isn’t good enough.

  56. Erick

    May 22, 2011 at 11:45am

    Everbody thinking the same KT, others having a laugh oh rumours

  57. Will

    May 22, 2011 at 12:21pm

    Bramble? I would stop supporting Arsenal if we go after him.

  58. Rocastle

    May 22, 2011 at 12:34pm

    Afternoon all,

    Well done To arsenal on winning the monkey tennis, oops I mean women’s FA cup…Rico, that’s a joke, simmer!!

    News just in we’ve signed Ricardo Alvarez on a free from Velez in Argentina. An AT&T king midfielder. Looks v. tricky on YouTube, a bit like bergkamp with pace…

    Fox News have reported a done deal and he’ll sign when the Argie season ends.

  59. Rocastle

    May 22, 2011 at 12:36pm

    That was suppose to say attacking??!!

    I think this rumour has got some legs, sounds very Wengerish.

  60. Will

    May 22, 2011 at 12:54pm

    I hope it does and he is as good as everyone says he is.

  61. Rocastle

    May 22, 2011 at 1:03pm

    I’ve never heard of the kid, I know you tube can make anyone look like pele but the clips I saw about 20 of the were from one game!!

    Hopefully well get him in…..could mean Cesc/Nasri are on the boat already though???

  62. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 1:16pm

    Cesc Fabregas bid from Barca ‘to give Arsenal free choice of player swap’

    Reports in the Spanish press have suggested Barcelona are prepared to offer Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger a free choice of almost any of their players to be used in a swap deal to seal a summer transfer for midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

    Messi anyone???

  67. rico

    May 22, 2011 at 2:26pm

    Have to win today, they need to forget what is going on at Bolton, just win shubhamgoel27

    But, i think Bolton will get something from their game…

    Captain and all that, not the best move he has made….

  73. rico

    You are not too happy then JM??

    Arsenal ending 3rd will cheer your day 😉

  74. Joaquim moreira

    No, rico. If Arsenal win and finish 3rd, sure I will be happy. Very happy!
    And like I wrote two days ago, the summer transfer window will be different.
    But more important decisions in this afternon…

  75. Will

    May 22, 2011 at 3:29pm

    If they want him that bad, then give us a player who is as good, Messi is that man….

    That’s what i’d do, either that or pay the right money, like kelsey says, they won’t because they are broke…

    Charlie Nik reckons Cesc should go see Wenger and tell him he wants to leave in two years time – ready to take Xavi’s (spelling) place – then knuckle down and get on with Arsenal until then….

    Our game isn’t on TV, what a plop….

    There was a player who kicked Nasri 4 times and the ref did nothing but JD barely touched Zamora who then fell to the ground and they get a free kick.

    yep, he’s fine…

    Will, i don’t honestly think he will believe that is progression – now i’m not looking back on the season, only forwards to the transfer window and next season….

    This one is done, CL qualifiers loom, so that cuts wengers time down in the window…..

    Another one!
    Portuguese cup half time: Guimarães 2 Porto 5
    4th !!!
    one more game, and City will be the second…
    Since the League Cup: Arsenal and Birmigham, both fall down in the table

    I bet Birmingham would swap that CC win now for a place in the PL next year JM….

    Anyway, onwards and upwards for all, the only sadness is not seeing Holloway interviews as frequent as we have done… :(

    I was reminscing on past events.

    I recalled there were a few postings on Wenger losing the dressing room.

    There is no way that this so-called “best of the best” manager can lost his dressing room and can’t motivate his players or swiftly changed tactics in the midst of the games that win or draw a match from a losing position after CC Final.

    Similarly, I don’t like his excuse forever bleating “players played to many games…players injured…”.

    More and more, I believe this hypocritical snake-oil salesman had lost the dressing room, players turned cynical and can’t be bothered to play for Arsenal, can hardly wiat for season end with their agents whoring ’em to the highest bidder in the summer.

    What is the point of having worldclass players who chose when to play, when to exert themselves and goen MIA in tight games….and who demoralised rest of the committed players simply Wenegr always chose hsi favorite regardless of squad palyers who were in-form and promptly dropped when his favorite french poodles and pretty boys recovered from injury or a long layoff and fast-tracked back into the side.

    None more obivous than 2006 CL Cup FInal when he fast-tracked Cashley Cole into the side at the expense of “in-form” Flamini….dropped Reyes to play his favorite Pires…

    And 2011 Barca 2nd leg…claimed that he selected Cesc ‘cos he said he is fit….where as a manager he should know that Cesc is nowhere ready…and Wenegr his a poodle to cater to all whims and fancies of his marquee boy to persuade him to stay….

    People, we have a weak manager who had lost the dressing room, akin to the tail wagging the dog now.

    Remind moi of a deluded Brian CLough during the tial-end of his career introducing Rosario as his “worldclass” striker……like Wenger bragging not so long ago..”WHy not? we can win the Quadruple……we can win the title……2nd spot shows we had improved…..we will win a silverware within 2 years..remember he said that during stakeholder revolt in 2008/09 season??”

    WHy do you think?
    That he had lost the dressing room, hence that dreadful and demoralising run sicne Carlign Cup Loss? Players are not listening to him?

  134. Merlin96

    May 23, 2011 at 1:34am

    Can Nasri replaced Cesc?
    Nasri is just a pretty boy who gone MIA when we needed a man to standup like Cesc to win games for us throughout the season…and not good only at season satrt and faded away badly 2nd half of season.

    Contrast to Cesc since he broke into the side in 2004/05 season and the way he single-handed dominated midfield and made Arsenal ticked during those halycon days of Rosicky-Fabregas-Flamini-Hleb.

    Sell him for 30m to 35m and buy a player to complement Cesc.

    And I doubt whether Wenger will release Cesc now as he is sitll that cornerstoen that Wenger needed to rebuidl Arsenal.
    And Cesc’s contract runs to 2014 and I can only see Wenegr selling Cesc during summer 2012…after Euro 2012.

    Another thing.
    Cesc willing to sign an 8-year contract extension whereas this pretty boy is whoring himself to get a lucrative contract extension. That speaks volumes on his commitment to Arsenal in contrast to Cesc when he was acknowledged as that cornerstone that Wenger will build the team around him.

    Bottlers, French Poodles and pretty boys that are holding Arsenal at ransom with their agents whoring them to highest bidders? Just sell ’em and rebuild a team with passionate, committed and fearless players that will fight and die for the badge”

    Unlike NAsri that after one or two hefty tackles, he gone MIA and does not relished the physicality of the English Football.

    1 – Clichy – 10m to highest bidder?
    2 – Nasri – 30m – 35 m to highest bidder?
    3 – Sagna – 10m to Bayern or whatnots…
    4 – Gibbs – just sell him and pointless to cater to his deluded wage demand.
    5 – ALmunia – just release him
    6 – Eboue – just release him to a circus
    7 – Squillaci – just release him
    8 – Vela – sell him if you don’t play him
    9 – Rosicky – just release him
    10- Arshavin – why do you want to keep a player who does not want to play for you?

    May 23, 2011 at 9:34am

    There is no way I want Sagna sold.
