Little news but will Robin be rested tomorrow??

Boxing Day here in the UK and it’s got nothing to do with grown men knocking six bells out of each other!

It all begins now.....

For many, Boxing Day is about eating all the food that was left over from Christmas Day, making sure it didn’t go to waste but the origin of its name come from employees picking up their ‘gift parcel’ or ‘Christmas box’ on the first working day after the 25th December and this could contain anything from left over food, to money….

On to Arsenal – we don’t have a fixture today as it’s been postponed until tomorrow but when the whistle blows for kick off, the gloves will be off!

We may not have the three minutes rounds and of course, we won’t have the knock-out but anything other than three points tomorrow will feel like one!

As expected, there is little Arsenal news other than a few reports which suggest Robin van Persie could be in line for a rest tomorrow. I’m not sure that would be such a good idea and it’s not about him getting the scoring record, it’s about us needing three points. Hope he starts, we get a few goals and then take him off for a rest if he needs it.

Another story going around is that AVB is being given £150 Million to spend next month to strengthen his Chav team!! Crazy money, not sure our whole squad cost that much did they?

Anyway, enjoy the leftovers, tomorrow the boys are back in business!

Have a good day all……

    Hi Rico & all

    RvP must play. Looks like it will be an easy round for the top 4, so we need a full team to stay in touch

    Plus I wanna See RvP break that record, AW can’t afford to upset him either

  5. alan b'stard M P

    Goonstar, The madness will stop when they remove foreign ownership and foreign players

    Hi goonster and alan…

    no way should RvP be rested, not until wenger buys a goal scorer in 6/7 days time :)

    Good Mid-Morning Gooners.
    Enjoy your well-earned lunch Rico.
    Hiya Stan & Alan MP.
    Everyone out to the Boxing Day sales today?

    £150million eh?
    Should we be suprised guys?
    Abramovitch isn’t going away.
    We either compete with him, which means Ursmanov on the Board.
    Or we accept where we are…

  9. alan b'stard M P

    ah, but Rico, will he buy. Will he by talent if he buys at all?

    Good morning Guys and Chicks of the Gunners faith. Hope you enjoyed your day yesterday and are not suffering from a hangover.

    150million eh!!!!! Now why doesnt AW offer them Denilson, Bendtner, Chamack, Vela, Squillaci, Arshavin and Diaby. That lot could fetch around 50million easily and it would siut them since they would not have to move house.

    Morning all,
    Rest robin, I don’t think so he played more when he was injured, to rest him when his fit bit double dutch that.
    We need to keep the pressure on those teams above us, personally speaking i believe if we had had both our full backs against city we would have won and with that in mind we have to get these so called easy points firmly in the bag.

  13. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 12:52pm

    I agree with Nick, er , i mean Sir Steve.
    Yessir, Robin can have a rest when we play Leeds.
    He doesn’t have to play the entire 270 mins of our forthcoming 3 EPL games. Some thoughtfull substitutions, when the points are safe, should do the trick.
    Hiya DG, and hiya SP.

  14. devilgunner

    December 26, 2011 at 12:57pm

    Gd day AK, Sir Steve, ABMP.

    I would not rest RVP. But I would definately rest him if he has broken Sherear’s record. Why??? The reason is simple. He would be fired up for it. And that would surely mean that Wolves would concentrate on him and leave the others to do the business…..if they manage to score that is!!!!!!!

  15. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 1:04pm

    I would luv, LUV IT, if RVP broke Shearers record.
    And no doubt he would luv to do it as well.

    But i imagine that RVP sees the 9 points as his priority.
    And so do i….

  16. Potter

    December 26, 2011 at 1:07pm

    If he rests him then were not buying in January. If we were then logically he could get a rest after then.

  17. alan b'stard M P

    December 26, 2011 at 1:15pm

    RvP has that extra incentive to break that record. So he’ll be hungry. He has bugger all time to do it though

  18. Joaquim Moreira

    December 26, 2011 at 1:24pm

    Gervinho and chamack can’t be rest … :-)
    Im watching the boxing day. Our sport Tv broadcast 6 games (theree at the some time). For the moment, on the 23th minute, chelsea 0 fulham 0

  19. Joaquim Moreira

    December 26, 2011 at 1:34pm

    December 26, 2011 at 1:35pm

    Hi AK and DG, hope your celebrations went well.
    I wouldn’t worry yourselves about Robin staying or going that will happen whether we like it or not, While he’s scoreing keep him playing he will probably be under pressure to break the record and i should inagine he would love to break records even if he can’t pick up a trophy, I would let him play for the simple reason no other bugger looks capable:.

    Happy Boxing Day people,

    I have a whistle that is only audible to south american fruitbats, I pulled it out of a christmas cracker yesterday lunchtime, its free to any good home if anyone wants it.

    We tried resting our goal machine a few weeks back in the league and it nearly back fired on us, he came off the bench in the 2nd half to come up with the goods, for me he must start tomorrow.

    Rico, are you having lunch at the palace today ? Don’t forget to take your garibaldi’s with you.

  22. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 1:43pm

    Afternoon, Rico, and all you happy HHers! :P:

    There may not be any quality CFs available in the January transfer window, so I would be v. happy to see us get Titti on loan.

    He cannot be the same as he was at his peak, but psychologically it will give the team and squad a big lift.

    Hi AGAG, sorry to miss you yesterday, Hope you had a great Christmas break! :D:

    See you all in the New Year! :grin:

    Plenty of white Luis Suarez t-shirts similar to those worn by Liverpool’s players before the game at Wigan dotted around Anfield today.

    December 26, 2011 at 3:17pm

    ok, four matches broadcasting at the same time. My preferable attention to WBA-Mcity.
    Another player link to Arsenal:Abdel Barrada, 22 years old, Getafe (Spain), midfield. Others clubs interesting un him: Barcelona, Real Madrid, Sevilha, Vila Real and Liverpool

  34. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 3:49pm

    Good old Fulham.
    I did hear that AFC were looking at taking Zamora on loan!
    I wouldn’t be adverse to that.

  35. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 3:50pm

    SSP, our celebrations went very well mate.
    A good time was had by all.
    The only downside was the marbles in my cracker …. :D

  36. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 3:54pm

    At least you’ve got your marbles AK!!

  37. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 3:56pm

    Managed to get a ticket for tomorrw’s game and miss out on going to mother-in-laws!! Double result!!! :)

  38. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 3:56pm

    Good point Red Arse re; TH14.

    Alan MP, gotta say that i think all these t-shirts could re-bound on the Scousers.
    Maybe a case of them protesting too much?

  39. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 3:58pm

    Wow, here he is….. hiya Lee.
    So the escape plan came off?
    I might make the QPR hahahaha, game… :)

  40. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 3:59pm

    I read the other day, how many goals you thought TH would score and I kinda agree with you AK!!

  41. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:00pm

    Wigan are letting us down…
    Come on the Throstles [spelling?]….

  42. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 4:01pm

    Been a real fucker emptying the dirt out trousers but the tunnels nearly ready!!

  43. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:01pm

    Lee, i know a bit of the pace must be gone.
    But the technique is still there.
    Give him a chance and he’ll put it in the onion basket…

  44. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:02pm

    Just don’t try leaping over barbed wire on a motorbike…

  45. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 4:04pm

    He’s a natural and we’ll tee him up!

  46. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 4:06pm

    I dunno about bridge last time I saw him play we ripped him apart! JV would be my choice…

  47. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:07pm

    That’s right mate.
    He doesn’t need to charge around, our midfield will put them on a plate for him.
    He can do a lot of damage in only 15 or 20 minutes at the end of games…

  48. K-TR7

    December 26, 2011 at 4:07pm

    Hope you guys had a blast.am not in a holiday mood because my closest aunt passed away and we buried her just a few days ago and thats why i’ve not been around.am in no merry mood :( :(

  49. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:09pm

    yeah Lee, i have to say that i’d rather have Verm at left-back for now.
    Vert would be great, but we might have to wait until the summer.
    What about Alex on loan?

  50. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:10pm

    ah, that’s bollox KT, sorry to hear about that buddy.

  51. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 4:10pm

    Sorry to hear that mate! My mum’s in bloody hospital, happy fucking Christmas! :(

  52. Lee

    Becoming a chavs old boy club!

  53. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:12pm

    Losing any family members this close to Christmas is cruel.
    But you’ll always get a sympathetic ear on Rico’s home KT.
    Don’t be a stranger mate.

  54. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 4:12pm

    To be honest Kev I liked the look of Alex when he was playing in holland…..

  55. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:14pm

    That’s right Lee, but if their as good as Benny, i’ll take that.

    Mum in good form i trust?

  56. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:16pm

    Ditto Lee, he had a couple of great games against us in the CL.
    Scored if i recall.

    Seems as if AVB is going for a big clear-out…
    A couple of seasons in transition i hope.

  57. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 4:17pm

    As well as can be expected mate, thanks!
    He’s an upgrade on Squil so why not…
    I was reading about gotze and he’s stated he’d prefer Spain as his next move.. :(

  58. K-TR7

    December 26, 2011 at 4:18pm

    I’ll survive guys.all i want is 9 points and rvp to break shearer’s record.

  59. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 4:19pm

    If we are gonna loan/buy anyone I hope they pull their fingers out and get it all done early doors!!!

  60. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:20pm

    Gotze eh?
    He’s a great player mate, but we missed our chance last summer.
    Another ‘Gazides special’ no doubt.
    Ditto Hazard & M’Vila…

  61. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 4:21pm

    But then it is AFC we’re talking about…

  62. K-TR7

    December 26, 2011 at 4:22pm

    What made it worse was that she had been ill for a while but she was getting better.i decided to visit her when she was scheduled to be released.imagine my shock horror on arrival at the hospital? :( :(

  63. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:22pm

    I make you right KT.
    9 points and i’ll be very very happy mio amigo.

    Gotta feeling that AW will want his business done shapish Lee.
    But will Gazides have the same urgency?

  64. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 4:23pm

    None of those names will be playing in red & white!! ;)
    Think text messages AK!!

  65. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:25pm

    Fcuk me KT, that is terrible mate….
    That brings back some shit memories to me KT…
    Don’t dwell buddy, it’ll mess with your head….

  66. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:26pm

    Unfortunately Lee i make you 200% correct.
    No chance at all.. ;) ;)

  67. allezkev

    December 26, 2011 at 4:27pm

    No chance RVP scoring the goals he needs either Lee…. :D

  68. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 4:29pm

    He deserves it but he’s not got a chance!! ;)

    Mind games in the offing methinks… :)

  78. Lee

    December 26, 2011 at 4:48pm

    Yeah ok Mick, a cunning plan has fallen into place where by I avoid going to the mother-in-law’s tomorrow and go to the Emirates!!!
    No Zamora for me….TH all day long in front of him!!!

  79. Lee
