Hazard deal on? Ryo to feature? Sagna’s fit so no left back signing & Arsene ‘back tracks’!

I don’t get this – Bacary Sagna, one of the best right backs in the Premier League, a player who is just returning after suffering a leg break is the reason give by Arsene Wenger for not buying a left back! Sheet, let the guy come back and play where he is best, not stick him in an unfamiliar position and risk another injury….

Gibbs is reported to be back in full training on Monday, so he will need another week I would imagine and in the meantime, we risk playing another player out of position. Not just any old player though, our best right back!

Logic? I can’t see any either….

Talking of logic and back to the substitution that caused so much outrage last weekend, Wenger has backtracked over Chamberlains injury:

He is alright, it was just fatigue. His calf was not gone or anything like that, he just started to tire a little bit. It is normal for a guy who plays a game at that intensity. But health-wise he has no problem. He will be involved on Sunday.

Call me a cynic, our manager knew he wasn’t injured at the time and now he’s trying to justify his actions…

Hey ho, that’s all gone now, tomorrow is another day, another game and I hope we don’t see anything similar take place.

One player who could feature tomorrow is Ryo Miyaichi as Arsene Wenger has said that Ryo’s future will be decided this weekend.

No of course that doesn’t mean he’s being sold but it could mean a loan deal is on the cards so it could mean we all finally see this youngster play some part against Villa and then Wenger will make up his mind whether to play him over the next few months or let him gain experience elsewhere.

Finally, no doubt you all saw the stories going around again yesterday about Eden Hazard, if we are to believe L’équipe, the French sports newspaper – Eden Hazard will be leaving Lille within the next 48 hours, and the club he is going to sign for is….. Oh, us!

Yeah right I say ;)

Until he’s pictured in red and white on our official site, don’t believe it….

Have a good day all, FA Cup day tomorrow….

  6. Pete says:

    Link for Hazard story?

  7. stevepalmer1 says:

    Morning nice one Rico,
    Just tripped over in the garden Hazards everywhere, but sadly not at Arsenal :)

    Sagna as left back, the mind boggles.
    Looks like The Ox also possesses Jacks super human healing powers we have superstars everywhere. :)

  8. Erick says:

    Morning all, are we going to win anything this season?

  9. stevepalmer1 says:

    Eric Yep, Injury of the year.

  10. lukesburg says:

    make your news look real, i pray wenger signs hazard,cos it seems we’ll need his services since wikshere is still out.how much of him i miss.

  11. rico says:

    whatajoke, useful comment thanks!

    Morning Erick and Steve – be glad when this window shuts…..

  12. Ryan says:

    Chances of signing Hazard are less than zero! No story on l’equipe either!

  13. rico says:

    Pete – its in yesterday’s post with the translation from French…

  14. Abubakr Gazal Ormolayor says:

    Let keep our finger accross on hazard nd let drm d deal goes through

  15. stevepalmer1 says:

    Rico, i think it was shut before it opened for us.

  16. rico says:

    Ryan, one of the HH regulars read it yesterday, and there is another link for the story – of course it may all be a spoof, but…..

    That’s life during a silly transfer window….

  17. Abubakr Gazal Ormolayor says:

    Hazard wil be gunners if arsenal ar seriouse

  18. rico says:

    :lol: steve, same old for us eh….

  19. Ryan says:

    Mate just looked on the offiicial l’equipe website and nothing on there unfortunately! What a talent

  20. Erick says:

    We are in real trouble guys, we need a miracle tbh

  21. Erick says:

    Hazard was at the ems to watch the united clash, got tickets from gervinho all the rumours are false

  22. rico says:

    Maybe its been removed Ryan, try the link that was posted in the comments yesterday, thats from another sports site….

    Erick, we do, two signings could be that miracle….

  23. DutchGooner10 says:

    Morning Rico. Good day Gooners, honourable and knowledgeable amigo’s.

    You’re not being cynical Rico. I am tired of Wenger pretending the club is in a state of picking flowers, blowing bubbles and running through lavish green fields. Sweet coating our swan song with do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do. He’s been all musical on our arses for several seasons.

    I fear our next season kits will be made out of old Highbury curtains.

    If there was ever sensible business staring us in the face it’s now this transfer window. AA and Chamug devalue every future minute they play for us. Incredible I know but both still have admirers in their home leagues. Must be Beta-max tapes they are watching.

    It can bring in half the fee of a Hazard quality addition.

  24. Erick says:

    Rico i honestly don’t s3 it happening, we are in for a bumpy ride, first time in many seasm we have to finish strong.

  25. rico says:

    I’m sure they are Erick… sadly…

    Morning DG, it does all get tiresome, excuse after excuse…..

    They would have sold the curtains, anything for a quick buck….

  26. Erick says:

    Dutbh gooner, howdy to you we have been saying this for two seasons now get rid of the dead wood asap and re invest in quality but Arsene nt listening

  27. Marinello says:

    Morning Rico, Steve, Ryan, Erick.
    Probably just a rumour about Hazard, created by his Agent. Good to see Bacary back and I hope the Ox starts again against Villa.
    What would the fee be for Hazard?

  28. Erick says:

    Howdy Marinello, 38 million i reckon, Aw would never pay that much…but we have players we can add to the deal

  29. rico says:

    We never do though Erick, we nornally ‘survive’ because we play well in the first half of the season, its not looking good……..

  30. rico says:

    Morning Marinello – there are different figures being quoted for Hazard, all of which are above £10Million so count us out ;)

    I think Chamberlain will start, Wenger will be too sacred to leave him out and I wouldn’t be surprised to see AA rested and Ryo on the bench with Henry….

    Really good news re Sagna…. He’s been seriously missed….

  31. DutchGooner10 says:

    Rico it’s all surrogate and simulations. Not the real thing. Guess Coca-Cola won’t be interested in a sponsor deal.

    Erick I know, better throw a occupy movement on the center pitch. That will get their attention. Even if they ignore to see it, there still be the penetrating smell of unwashed mortal souls.

  32. Erick says:

    Rico my patiences with Aw is on an all time low, think we are in a fix all because we refuse to spend an extra coin.

  33. Marinello says:

    I agree Erick. But I can’t see anyone in their right mind wanting to pay a fee for the likes of Aluminium, Flapianski, Squillaci, Denilson, Bendtner, JD, Arshavin or Chamakh. Maybe give them free transfers just get the wage bill reduced….

  34. allezkev says:

    Good Morning Gooners.
    Good Morning Rico.

    It’s Saturday, so it’s Wind-Up Day, as the rumours for Eden Hazard gain momentum…….


  35. rico says:

    :lol: DG

    Or the board won’t take him to one side and tell him to spend Erick…

    Morning AK, roll on midnight Tuesday eh, then we know where we are and i strongly suspect it will be where we are today :(

  36. Erick says:

    DG wat happened at the manure game is a sign of things to come, Aw getting abuse from the fans is just the start…Morinello we had alot of chances to get the deadwood out and get some cash bt aw refuses to take advantage of the chance

  37. Antonio says:

    Wish the papers would stop staring stuff up! But hope hazard signs very soon gunner4life

  38. Erick says:

    Howdy Ak, am trying to look into the argument that the Board is not giving Aw the support and I can’t seem to get enough evidence bt the problem is evident

  39. Marinello says:

    Any predictions for the Villa game?
    Don’t want to tempt fate but I feel a 2-0 win to the Arse.

  40. allezkev says:

    Marinello, free transfers for Almunia & Fabianski this summer are a certainty as i believe their contracts expire.

    I think the Window closes at 5pm this Tuesday Rico, i might be wrong, but i’m pretty sure that’s what i heard.

    Hiya Dutch.
    The Hills Are Alive, With The Sound of Music….. :D

  41. DutchGooner10 says:

    Erick Wenger has come out to whisper he will stay unfazed by mass critics. Sssstt don’t tell anyone. Keep it to yourself.

  42. Ogugua says:

    Since our hope is gone let us hope for nothing.

  43. Erick says:

    I will go with a one nil for the Arse and Rvp to score coz if he doesnt we don’t win

  44. allezkev says:

    Erick, the people responsible for transfers, Gazides and Dick Law, are just not very good…!

    I did read on another site, in a web-cast, that Jamie Sanderson was taking part in, that they believe that Kroeke might have a clear-out at Board level this summer.

    Now that isn’t gospel, just someones educated opinion.
    It was on RSD’s blog. So not a bunch of hot-headed story-tellers….

  45. allezkev says:

    I think McLeish will park the bus, a la Birmingham under McLeish.

    We know what to expect from a McLeish team.

    The question is, what kind of Arsenal team turn up.

    We could win 3-0 if they’re in the mood…

  46. allezkev says:

    Would be good to see Ryo and Ox in tandem at some point tomorrow, might be a glimpse of what the future holds?

  47. Joaquim Moreira says:

    Good morning!
    Cold but nice for a walk
    Catch you later

  48. Talent says:

    This is talent saying about wenger issue he should purchase a good miedfielder some one like edin hazard because he is a creative player we can aford lose some one like him

  49. Erick says:

    Dg as long as the results are dismal the revolt against Aw continues, Ak i refuse to believe that no one in the boardroom wants us to do well and see wat we lack

  50. rico says:

    I think we will struggle but win Marinello ;)

    Villa have quality up front though AK, have a feeling they will fancy their chances, especially with old spud Keane in their side :(

  51. Erick says:

    Jm wats up bro, long time what you up to

  52. rico says:

    Will Sagna start??

    Hi JM, enjoy your walk…

  53. allezkev says:

    Erick, it’s not a case of people in the Boardroom not wanting us to win things mate.

    The question should be, what are their priorities???

    In the Black? Or.
    In the CL?? Or.
    Winning trophies???

  54. DutchGooner10 says:

    Hiya AK a board clear out sounds like music that can carry itself over high mountains. ;-)

    Marinello I predict 2-2 to the Arsenal. Theo and RvP scoring and 2 own goals. Villa will pump the long balls to reach the bald spot of Heskey and the drag racing of Agbon. Putting the leather covered pig stomach in the box will create danger. Cuz our defence will be walking on eggs. There’s just a nervous streak I see returning, from the start of our season.

  55. Erick says:

    Don’t see him being involved at all Rico bt am known to be wrong

  56. allezkev says:

    Yeah Rico, it’s gonna be a difficult game, but i think it depends on Arsenal’s attitude as we have the better team, it’s between the ears that counts on the day…..

  57. Erick says:

    Ak I nobody know what happens at the board level, all we can do is speculate but wat happens on the field is enough to tell us that something is wrong

  58. DutchGooner10 says:

    Seriously hope to be proved a moron though.

    AK Ryo Ox tandem, me like that idea. Theo replacing Ryo in the second half.

  59. rico says:

    Certainly don’t think he should play if not 100% fit Erick, Yen will be ok there…

    Spot on AK, attitude, and our lot better want to win this game and play like they do too….

  60. Erick says:

    We have no room for experiments play the best team and no stupid subs

  61. rico says:

    Got a few things to do so popping off for an hour…

  62. Micko says:

    Fa cup weekend, the magic of the cup, 2005, its been too long.

    Dutch, curtains………pull yourself together man.

    Does wenger know he can’t take the money to the grave with him.

    Wonder if AA may be involved in a last minute deal again, its looking likely to me, got a feeling in my water.

  63. Erick says:

    Ryo and the Oxo ahead of Theo, now you talking…any news on Theo’s contract

  64. allezkev says:

    Just for you Dutch……..

    I know you’ll love it…..

    :lol: :lol: :lol:

  65. Erick says:

    Micko he he hope your water is right lol bt we have to replace him we need the squad players

  66. allezkev says:

    Mick, that’ll be the brown ale….

  67. Micko says:

    Kev, I’ve got a request, would you put the George Graham 1990 team talk clip up, its the business, I love that clip.

  68. Micko says:

    Erick, if we don’t add in the next couple of days i think we may be looking at europa cup football next season.

  69. allezkev says:

    Your wish is my command Mick.

  70. DutchGooner10 says:

    Micko you funny. Closed curtains will keep me alive I feel hair in my neck rising and my teeth transforming.

    AK thanx are you getting jigga with me? I would rather have a little swagger. As in Jay Z in the stands for talisman support. He knocks quality I heard.

  71. Erick says:

    Micko the way things are going Europa league is not off the mark, but we can do it we just need some luck and great performances from the team

  72. Micko says:

    Nice one kev, that is quality and what a team that was, heroes everywhere you looked.

  73. allezkev says:

    Dutch, jigga???
    I can’t dance mate….
    I can swagger quite well, usually after 8 pints of Stella.
    Er maybe that was stagger….. ;)

  74. Micko says:

    Erick, first priority for me is 40 points, then I can relax, we’re be safe for another season.

  75. allezkev says:

    Mick, that team had a backbone, from goalkeeper to centre-forward….
    They were mentally strong as well as very good footballers…

  76. Erick says:

    he he swag I hear thats whats up…

  77. DutchGooner10 says:

    GG vid is old skool English class. But my god, talk about closed curtains did they keep them players out of the sunlight or what? Dixon looking particularly pale. Must have drunk pints of Spa.

  78. Erick says:

    Micko we have played fourth lots of time, Aw is loosing the plot and we need a strategy change the youth project when the person we built around went to Barca

  79. allezkev says:

    Remember this one Mick…?

    That was the team that lost only ONE league game…

  80. Erick says:

    Ak quality clips, some of the lads should see this clips…history club Arsenal

  81. Micko says:

    Dutch, when I was America a few years back I had a native come up to me and say ” Now your a real white man” I burst out laughing, I have to use factor 40 when I venture out into the sunshine otherwise I end up looking like a lobster, its the Irish blood in me.
    To add insult to injury he thought I was Austrailian, no offence Scott.

  82. DutchGooner10 says:

    AK jigga = slang lingo denoting confusion or surprise to another party’s previous action or remark.

    LOL; Stella pints stagger.

  83. allezkev says:

    Dutch…. Thank God for that mate… :P:

    I’ll have teach ya some cockney slang.

  84. allezkev says:

    Erick, a different mentality mate, but it came from the top.
    Not sure that some of the softies we have in the squad now could take that kinda stuff…

  85. Erick says:

    Qpr and Chelsea cancel the pre match handshake

  86. rico says:

    Hi Micko

    Fergie is playing a blinder, Evra is captain today for their FA Cup match against the Dippers…

    Could be a tasty one ;)

  87. rico says:

    Erick, there wouldn’t have been one ;)

  88. Erick says:

    Ak am sure some would cry all the way home, we have the quality but we are too soft and want things in a silver plate

  89. DutchGooner10 says:

    Micko Americans call that type of skin WASP White Anglo-Saxon Protestant. ;-)

    Yankees are pretty intense when it comes to anything outback or not from their turf. Very biased.

  90. Erick says:

    ha ha second time Terry would have seen his hand hanging lol

  91. rico says:

    Good job its just his hand Erick, most women around him get to see something else :oops:

    On that note, off to walk Fido, back in a bit….

  92. Erick says:

    Be good Rico, heading out to watch the Mancs game

  93. DutchGooner10 says:

    Lata Erick enjoy old red nose.

  94. DutchGooner10 says:

    Sneezing :-)

  95. Erick says:

    Dg am still about, get some medicine for that lol

  96. DutchGooner10 says:

    AK Hot pants those were the days for Arsenal.

    Love the comment; hands on experience with the trophy!!

  97. DutchGooner10 says:

    Erick I bet Fergie can snort a whole eucalyptus tree.

  98. allezkev says:

    Dutch, those shorts were, i would imagine, more to the taste of Agag and Rico… ;)

  99. DutchGooner10 says:

    AK you can see those players eat hot steel for breakfast. They have a different kind of twinkle in their eyes. Must have been windy exposing the legs so near the croch.

  100. Marinello says:

    What a travesty in that Samba won’t be coming to join the Arse. He plays with passion, has great technical prowess, and is dangerous going forward at set pieces. We could give JD, and Mertsacker plus £5m and have us one Samba.
    I read somewhere that Loach, the promising Watford keeper is becoming unsettled. Be a good back up for Chesney, with Almunia going the other way.

  101. allezkev says:

    Ok guys, am offski to cheer for Liverpool
    [ Did i really say that 8-O ]…..

  102. Joaquim Moreira says:

    Qpr 0 chelsea0
    Liverpool 1 Mu 0
    All the teams win MU,fulham and M. city

  103. Erick says:

    one nil to liverpool, hate the fans booing Evra classles…Dg am sure he would end to end stuff

  104. DutchGooner10 says:

    Marinello don’t know who said it yesterday but someone called Samba the carbon-copy of Soll in the making. Justified imo.

    If Cheszer gets injured AW will get slaughtered on the web for not acting this transfer window. Back up has been calling for attention since Lehman the looney German was first choice.

  105. Erick says:

    Thanks for the clips Ak great stuff, Marinelo we have had a dozen chances to get Samba but we have done nothing at all

  106. DutchGooner10 says:

    Later AK. Cheers.

  107. stevepalmer1 says:

    Chelski 1.0
    pool 1.0

  108. Erick says:

    I bet we have a match now eh

  109. DutchGooner10 says:

    Hiya SP. The FA could be a real chance to lift silver ears this year.

  110. stevepalmer1 says:

    I think thats our only chance Dutch

  111. Erick says:

    We have a great chance, but we are chasing the fourth and in the CL tough with our average squad

  112. stevepalmer1 says:

    I think the only way we’ll be in the champions league next year is if we win it this year

  113. DutchGooner10 says:

    I don’t want to sell the hide before the bear is down SP. A win tomorrow only cripples it, ManU will have their eyes set on the double.

  114. stevepalmer1 says:

    They have to win today first Dutch no mean feat

  115. stevepalmer1 says:

    Sturredge dived better than tom Daley

  116. rico says:

    shocking ref’in again today, what a soft penalty given to rhe chavs….

    afternoon all….

  117. DutchGooner10 says:

    Sorry SP forgot to add. The Scoucers, if they beat ManU, will feel elevated taking out the potential finalist. Seeking a back door to CL football given their poor run in the EPL. Daglish seems they guy capable of a hairdryer in the dressing room if the chips are down.

    Don’t want to sound negative, but I believe our chances when the Arsenal bus is being tracked by a helicopter on final day.

  118. rico says:

    he won’t like seeing that replay steve, what a cheat… and pundits say the foreigners dive….

  119. Erick says:

    The odds are against us tbh, we are in a fix guys something has to change and fast

  120. rico says:

    The FA Cup winners go into europa dont thet DG?

  121. Erick says:

    Rico i have not seen the dive but at anfield its end to end stuff

  122. rico says:

    Really soft from Sturridge – he just fell over, cheating little toad…

    They showed it at H/T on itv, i’m watching Manure too, they should have had a penalty ;) Don’t want either to win this though…..

  123. Joaquim Moreira says:

    yes, The FA cup winner and the Cup league winner go to europe League. So cardiff maybe there…

  124. DutchGooner10 says:

    Hi Rico, I wasn’t sure but Steve seems to be clear on it. But I wonder if CL spot is still awarded to fourth place if a club outside top 5 win it.

  125. stevepalmer1 says:

    Don’t worry Eric we shouldn’t have much more time to wait, before we settle down and watch the others, some one said Wengers booked his holiday at the end of next month

  126. rico says:

    Thanks JM

    DG – i can’t remember what the outcome was after the dippers won it but finished 5th/6th, i know the winner automatically qualify but not sure if its at the expense of 4th place, have a feeling it is now….

    So, lets finish 5th, win the CL and Spuds finish 4th ;) ;)

  127. rico says:

    Marinello, agree re your Samba comment ;)

  128. Erick says:

    Jm done his homework, Sp he better stay on holiday forever if he can’t take us forward…chavs are cheats lol

  129. DutchGooner10 says:

    Rico a bit of mix up with all the silverware mentioned. I thought Steve meant winning the FA cup makes a CL spot. That’s why I wondered if it would be at the expense of fourth on the EPL table.

  130. rico says:


    2-1 dippers…

  131. rico says:

    Ah, i see now DG…

  132. rico says:

    Interesting, its been six years since Liverpool won anything…

    Would you guys consider them to be a bigger club than ours?

    How come they don’t get all the ‘Liverpool, who haven’t won any silverware in six years’ comments…..

  133. alan b'stard M P says:

    well done scousers

  134. Erick says:

    Thats a great observation Rico, i would argue that liverpool succes a while back compared to us but the media too dont fancy us

  135. stevepalmer1 says:

    because they have won europe a few times Rico and there still still trying

  136. DutchGooner10 says:

    Rico I guess winning the big ears gives you an extensive breather over a long period.

  137. rico says:

    I hate the scousers alan…..

  138. allezkev says:

    I hate Scousers as well.

    But you’ve gotta larf at the Mancs.

    Out of everything, almost….

    Fergie Out! ;)

  139. rico says:

    Think you must be right DG….

  140. rico says:

    :lol: AK, they will win the league though and probably the Europa Cup…..

  141. allezkev says:

    Vito Mannone facing Sanchez Watt…
    Hull vs Crawley

    Afternoon Gooners

    Boateng on bench for Swindon.
    Hoyte starting for AFC Wimbledon.
    Aneke not in squad at Stevenage?

  142. allezkev says:

    Hope not Rico, might divert some of the media attention away from us….

    Don’t mind the two Mancs going all the way to the Europa final though…

    Now we’ve gotta do ‘A Job’ on Villa.
    Would be unforgivable to waste this opportunity….

  143. allezkev says:

    @YoungGunsBlogJamie Sanderson

    Arsène Wenger suggestive of Chamberlain’s ability in a central role today. Played there before. An option in Wilshere’s absence?

  144. rico says:

    AK, my money is on Watt ;)

    Just been watching and Interview with the new Stevenage manager, he has connections to us and hopes to do a few more deals with a couple of our players, loans i think….

  145. allezkev says:

    ShaneOheffShane Heffernan


    @YoungGunsBlog Still can’t understand why in the world we would loan out Frimpong when we needed him

    1 hour ago

    in reply to ↑

    @YoungGunsBlogJamie Sanderson

    @ShaneOheff – He needs a loan badly, and we don’t need 3 DM’s. Lansbury loan a bit more baffling, but he could be recalled.

  146. allezkev says:

    Rico, Stevenage’s new manager coached and scouted for us awhile back.
    Still has a lot of contacts i believe.
    Good opportunity to have a nursey club maybe???

  147. allezkev says:

    @YoungGunsBlogJamie Sanderson

    Alcoyano says #AFC have asked about 17-year-old Lucas Torró, who Valencia have an option on, as clubs plan a partnership

  148. allezkev says:

    @YoungGunsBlogJamie Sanderson

    #AFC also ready to let Wellington Silva stay at Alcoyano on loan next season, as part of a deal. Kudos to: @DanielNotaro.

  149. rico says:

    AK, id get Lansbury back, in a flash….

  150. rico says:

    Part of what deal I wonder, re Wellington??

    Ah, i didn’t catch what his connection was, interesting, maybe we will get Freeman back once he’s proved himself ;)

  151. Micko says:

    Rico in that space of time the scousers have ousted there owners, found a new one who has given them the manager they were all crying out for and has given him the money to go and get the players he feels will make liverpool a force again, he will more than likely deliver a bit of silverware in a few weeks time as well.

  152. allezkev says:

    Maybe Arsenal are trying to come to an Understanding with Alcoyano?

    Once that’s done, then i bet Wenger could scout quite a few South Americans and have them out on loan, before applying for a work permit for those rated highly enough.

    Think the idea is to let Wellington stay at Alcoyano for 18 months.
    See how he goes and if it’s worth a work permit application.

    Then if it doesn’t work out, we could sell him.

    I believe that he’s under contract until 2016.

  153. allezkev says:

    As for Lansbury, yes i agree, but only if he’s gonna be part of the squad.

    He doesn’t often get a game for West ham, and that’s disappointing.

  154. allezkev says:

    2016 i meant….

  155. rico says:

    Good point Micko, wish we could start where they did, the owners and go from there…

    Who would we cry out for as manager, i’d love it to be a gooner, a real gooner …. Keown could do for the club/fans what KD is doing at Anfield…

  156. rico says:

    Didn’t Lansbury suffer an injury?? I think he could come in and push Ramsey, the latter i think has played too much for his first season back from such a severe injury, he needs a break…

    More kids – i hope not AK, we need players a bit older ;)

    The FA Cup opens up as a real possibility now for #AFC. Can we be ruthless and focused enough? Let’s see.

    @YoungGunsBlog i would kill for a cup run, and maybe a wembley date. cup finals are special, no matter what competition

    52 minutes ago

    @YoungGunsBlogJamie Sanderson

    @jayhoudini – Certainly. I wasn’t overly excited before the CC final, but its those occasions you live for as a fan. Hope we can do it

  158. Joaquim Moreira says:

    Win the CL not give the chance to be qualifying for the CL next season. In England, only the first 4 teams going there.

  159. Micko says:

    I’d love to think Arsenal have Bergkamp pencilled in for a few years down the line.

  160. allezkev says:

    My sentiments exactly, we so badly need to win a trophy and maybe Wenger will focus more on that, as a face saving exercise to compensate for finishing outside the top-four, but i won’t care.

    Winning the FA Cup would be marvellous….

  161. Micko says:

    Even sensational !

  162. allezkev says:

    Mick, i couldn’t imagine the idiots in our Boardroom thinking beyond this evening, let alone who the next manager will be…..

    That’s how Arsenal always run their affairs.

    Somehow they muddle thru….

  163. rico says:

    Bergkamp and Keown – just imagine what they would be able to do….

  164. allezkev says:

    You only need to cast your mind back a few years and see how they coped with managerial changes.

    Frankly they are clueless….

  165. rico says:

    F*****g awesome :)

  166. DutchGooner10 says:

    Thanx JM.

    Loaning these kids to the lower divisions will seriously hamper our chances to lure the rough diamonds. Championship clubs should be our main aim for kindergarten, or similar competitions in Europe. In Holland that would be top league, not a bad thing on a young career C.V.

  167. Jeff says:

    So We should stop dreaming about Hazard guys what is it now???? is he going to PSG /Chelsea/Real or Barca whats the on the offing!!!!

  168. allezkev says:


    That Le Grove podcast is a good listen….

  169. rico says:

    AK :lol: :lol:

  170. Joaquim Moreira says:

    Press news:
    The PSG is preparing a proposal for 20 million euros to Arsenal to ensure the acquisition of Theo Walcott, the second bypass this Saturday the British newspaper “Daily Mail”.
    Having missed the hiring of Carlos Tevez, the emblem of Paris seems now turn to the speedy England international, 22.

  171. rico says:

    Theo wouldn’t go abroad JM……

  172. DutchGooner10 says:

    Arry joke always top AK. :-D

  173. DutchGooner10 says:

    How about Donald Trump for Arsenal president?? Could do wonders with our property developers up stairs.

  174. Joaquim Moreira says:

    Chamack is comming next week ! :-(

  175. agirlagunner says:

    Finally, some time to blog! Hello, all! Catching up on the comments. Back in a bit. :)

  176. Joaquim Moreira says:

    “Normal” Stoke in Derby… 4 yellow cards until the moment.

  177. rico says:

    His country out of the ACON’s then JM :(

    No striker for us in this window then….

  178. agirlagunner says:

    rico, I really do hope we buy Hazard. he can only be good for our team. And I also really hope we win the CL. Problems sorted. :P ;)

    Weeds, if you are back, I am never able to catch you, it seems. :(

    Hi, Dutch, JM, SSP and SAK. I hope you are having a good weekend. :)

  179. rico says:

    Afternoon agag

  180. Ayorbermy says:

    All is well and good, lets just hope the deal go through.

  181. Joaquim Moreira says:

    Hi agag. yes, but I must wait for tomorrow ;-)

  182. DutchGooner10 says:

    Hi Agag you already had your pins off your feet last night? Didn’t catch tiptoeing out. :-D

  183. agirlagunner says:

    No time like the present, JM. Go have a good time today. :)

  184. rico says:

    i think our chances are little to none of getting hazard agag…..

  185. Ayorbermy says:

    All is well and good, lets just hope the deal go through.:-)

  186. rico says:

    Hi Ayorbermy – no chance :(

  187. agirlagunner says:

    Boo, rico! Howdy? I had a laugh at your nth declaration of loathing for the scousers. I must say, I dislike the red Mancs more. ;)

    Dutch, sorry! :oops:

  188. riki says:

    no chance arsenal sign eden hazard

  189. allezkev says:

    Still listening to the Le Grove podcast.

    A thoroughly great listen…


  190. agirlagunner says:

    It would be unbearable if we continue to persist with the likes of AA, Chamakh, et al. We must have hope!! ;)

  191. rico says:

    Haha agag, didn’t realise i had mentioned i am not keen on the dippers ;)

    AK, what’s it about??

  192. Joaquim Moreira says:

    So, our hope is Chamack and AA?

  193. allezkev says:

    Alex Fynn talking on AW and AFC.

    Some interesting views….

  194. allezkev says:

    Fynn thinks Wenger will leave in 2013.

    Says Wenger’s family want to return to France.

  195. allezkev says:

    Blames Wenger for not buying.

    Says club badly miss Dein.

  196. allezkev says:

    Says club will suffer badly if we drop out of CL.

  197. rico says:

    Who is Alex Flynn AK?

  198. DutchGooner10 says:

    Any girl wearing Jimmy Choo is worth waiting for a good night kiss. ;-) :-D :-D

    Don’t be sorry, be a smile as always. Me and SAK were wondering today if you/Rico fancy the Arsenal hot pants from back in those days. See last Vid.

  199. allezkev says:

    Thinks Arsenal need to change policy.

    Self sufficency has failed.

    New direction in transfer policy is needed.

  200. allezkev says:

    A writer and football consultant.

    Specialises in finance etc…

  201. agirlagunner says:

    rico, I think you’ve said it as many times as I’ve said I wanted us to buy Torres. :oops: ;)

    JM, by “hope”, I meant Hazard. AA and Chamakh = hopeless. ;)

  202. foxy says:

    need a talented md, a creative l,b, and a decent cf, with a non injury team , rotation, is the key to less injury. achieve that and we might get somthing out the season.

  203. Joaquim Moreira says:

    Kalou is out of the CAN too.
    AW – Real madrid ?

  204. allezkev says:

    That was a brilliant listen….

    About an hour, but you can still type and listen.

    I’d recommend it…

  205. rico says:

    AK – but thats no different that what many fans have been saying – nothing will change though regardless of who speaks out…..

  206. rico says:

    i think so too agag ;)

  207. agirlagunner says:

    Haha, Dutch, what are you smoking? :P Did Weeds (Erick) hand you some ganja? International shipping takes forever. Bummer. :(

    Hiya, AK. :) All that is nothing we don’t already know. AW was entirely too optimistic about the Youth Project. And the crown jewel of that enterprise is now wearing the icky blue and claret of the Stains. Yuck.

  208. rico says:

    i might hve a listen, maybe during tomorrows match, save listening to the idiots who commentate….

  209. Micko says:

    Kev, i 2nd that, a real insight into wenger, the board and Dein.

    Its well worth an hour of anybodies time.

  210. DutchGooner10 says:

    Rico Alex Flynn is the guy Wenger calls a football guru. Author of the book: Arsenal, the making of a modern football club.

  211. allezkev says:

    Mick, it’s certainly made me think a bit more about my criticisms of Gazides and co….

    Don’t think that Fynn has an agenda….

    Not sure where were going tbh…..

  212. Joaquim Moreira says:

    Dutch, I’m also a “football guru”

  213. Joaquim Moreira says:

    A strsnge goal for Espanol… Espanol 1 Mallorca 0

  214. DutchGooner10 says:

    Agag I have been smoking my laundry. Totally shrinking it to midget size. Turned on the heat a bit enthusiasticly. ;-)

    AK Micko will pick up the podcast later. Thanx a bunch.

  215. rico says:

    He won’t like whats been said then DG…

  216. rico says:

    Who is Flynn blaming mostly, Wenger??

  217. DutchGooner10 says:

    J M you are OUR football guru, that’s much more responsibility to handle.

  218. Joaquim Moreira says:

    Do your remember Rui Fonte? Is playing for Espanol

  219. rico says:

    welcome foxy, don’t think you are far off there, but we also need a quality number two keeper to back up Ches

  220. allezkev says:

    Rico, he’s blaming a mixture of people at the club.
    Says it’s a kinda culture thing that goes back to GG and before.

    But he blames Wenger for the lack of team investment.

    Think i might listen to it again a bit lata…

  221. rico says:

    yes JM, he was with us for a year, hows he playing these days?

  222. allezkev says:

    You can bet your bottom dollar, [or agags bottom :D ]that some lazy-arsed journo will listen to it and pretend that it’s his/her story.

    They’re shameless at stealing other people’s work and claiming an exclusive for themselves, the wankers….

  223. allezkev says:

    I know it’s an hour Rico, and that it concerns a lot of things that you already suspect, but there’s a few little gems of info in there worth listening to….

  224. Joaquim Moreira says:

    He is trying to score another goal… in last three apearences scored three times!

  225. stevepalmer1 says:

    Apparently psg have signed Eden Hazard

  226. DutchGooner10 says:

    Rico he’s constructively critical, what I understood is Wenger holds him in high regard cuz Flynn is knowledgeable beyond media bits and bites. Connecting modern day management and capital government of a worldwide brand/moloch to the new era of future of football.

  227. rico says:

    I don’t think he’s far wrong re Wenger failing to invest AK but again, the board should be more forceful, they should be telling him to spend what he has to make us stronger – but, i think they are frightened to upset him…

    I think it went wrong the day DD left but not becuase DD left, but because from that day Wenger had to not only manage but also be more involved in transfer dealings etc etc – and he’s never been told that that is no longer his role…

    He has too many fingers in too many arsenal pies…

  228. rico says:

    I shall have a listen AK, its just finding the time :(

    Wenger won’t hold him in such high regard DG, not after listening to what has been said – BUT, on the other hand, Wenger may just listen and think, if he respects Flynn….

    Steve :P Hoorah, now we need not get our hopes up although I think you are kidding us ;)

  229. stevepalmer1 says:

    Just read a bloggers comment,he said it was a done deal, we’ll soon know.

  230. Joaquim Moreira says:

    L’équipe doesn’t say anything about Hazard today.

  231. rico says:

    I’m having an early one guys, saturday night and all that :)

    You all have a good evening and see you tomorrow….

    Nighty Night all…..

  232. Joaquim Moreira says:

    guine 6 Botswana 1…

  233. rico says:

    Oh well, another bites the dust the Steve….

    JM, i couldn’t find yesterdays article on there…

    AK, i thought about stealing it ;)

    Def gone now….

    Nighty all

  234. Joaquim Moreira says:

    I’m watching now Pobolsky… Koln 1 Schalke 0

  235. DutchGooner10 says:

    Have a nice evening Rico. C y tomorrow. Will be fun if everyone turns up. Night night.

  236. Micko says:

    Rico, its very interesting to hear what he had to say about David Dein, his motto was always you have to speculate to accumalate, the complete opposite of wenger, Dein wanted to sanction the purchase of players when we moved into the emirates but wenger told the board it was not necessary as he wanted to go down the project youth road.
    In 2008 Arsenal were the richest club in the world when all the income was tallied up (359 million), Wenger is making the board millions but they don’t want to spend the profits on players, he is their golden goose.
    He thinks after last summers events wenger is slowly coming around to a different way of thinking.

  237. DutchGooner10 says:

    I also need to NASCAR away. Maybe back later fine folks. Otherwise see y tomorrow. Night all. .

  238. Micko says:

    Laters Dutch, rico, have fun.

  239. DutchGooner10 says:

    Micko last I heard was ManU 380 mln quid in debt and Real around 550 mln quid. Those 2 are above us in the profit league.

  240. Micko says:

    Kev, wanna talk us through the cricket………thought not.

  241. rico says:

    Just caught your comment Micko, maybe that was the real reason for DD leaving then? Strange how he and Wenger were gulfs apart on their views yet they remain great friends….

  242. Micko says:

    Dutch, did you just make a pit-stop !

  243. rico says:

    ‘He thinks after last summers events wenger is slowly coming around to a different way of thinking’.

    Micko, how come the bloody buffoon hasn’t signed us anyone this window ;)

  244. rico says:

    I watched England in the cricket, all i can say is well done pakistan…

    Its a fix ;) ;)

  245. taheri says:

    Mr Wenger just buy hazard for us please

  246. Micko says:

    Dein was good for wenger, they were a brilliant partnership, it’s possible he may return some day to the club and what’s the rush with signings, we still have 3 days to go.
    Now go and put your feet up.

  247. rico says:

    def gone now….. ;)

  248. rico says:

    I hope he returns, if it means we get back on track, wenger needs a kick and maybe dein is the man… we’ll see soon me thinks…

    feet are up :)

  249. taheri says:

    Hazard is the player that club need be serious about him Wenger please please please

  250. allezkev says:

    Did England lose to Pakistan then..?
    Tbh honest i haven’t looked today…..

    Night Rico…

  251. Chuksmartins says:

    U guys dont get. Hazard/ arsenal is nt going to happen nt while wenger is still at arsenal

  252. allezkev says:

    Bloody hell, all out for 72, an absolute disgrace…

    What with Ireland wanting Test status… :(

  253. Micko says:

    Kev, it wasn’t for the squeemish, not a very pretty site.
    I’m heading off for the evening, gotta get my make-up ready, catch you tomorrow.

  254. allezkev says:

    See ya Mick…..

    I bet you’ll look gorgeous….. ;)

  255. Joaquim Moreira says:

    Brigthon 1 Newcastle 0 (91th minute)

  256. allezkev says:

    That’s me gone, night all.

  257. solomon umeh says:

    harzard is not coming arsena let him look 4 experience palyer gunners 4 life

  258. Lexipenitas says:

    Nothing on Hazard on LEquipe website since the 15th of January. Plus the last 4-5 entries on him are completely unrelated to Arsenal :(

  259. Arsene knows says:

    What is our owner yank doing? Buying or not? Its now or chamakh!!! On his watch it looks odds on we will not qualify for the 1st time in a generation, his other ‘franchises’ are SHIT! Look & google for yourself, every afc blog misses the only issue… Fizman sold us out….. We are becoming his next shit ‘franchise’
    I pray for a hazard, for more quality players.. Read the back of our programme, I count 14 players good enough for arsenal football club.. Of course it’s obvious we need a squad of 22, we did have that & now we don’t

    Dein & Arsene = champions undefeated

    Kroenke & Arsene = no silverware

    Spot the difference!

  260. kyle says:

    He’s obviously guna play sagna right back and play verminator at left back, fuk people r thick

  261. richard says:

    The ever cynical arsenal fans…

  262. rico says:

    The ever realistic arsenal fans richard, we don’t have our heads in the sand…

  263. rico says:

    New Post up….

  264. MintBLK30 says:

    Er…. Sagna won’t plat on the left. He’ll play on right, TV5 will slot into left, kos & ze German will play at centre back. Gibbs will be back in a week or so which is why we won’t buy a left bac. Hazard isn’t coming to Arsenal so I think we should stop flogging that dead horse ….. Come on Arsenal let’s cut villa to pieces today. We owe McLeish big time… Enjoy the game chaps, I think today is our day. Up the Arsenal
