Are words needed?? Hull & Arsenal join as one…..

Hull City fans and Arsenal fans are set to join together as one 56 minutes into today’s FA Cup Final at Wembley to remember the victims of the Valley Parade fire.

Last weekend marked the 29th anniversary of the disaster, in which 56 people lost their lives after a fire took hold in the main stand as Bradford City played Lincoln City.

Although no official mark of remembrance has been planned for today, Hull City and Arsenal supporters will be holding a minute’s applause on 56 minutes

So low key compared to the publicity Hillsborough got and keeps on getting, yet so many lives lost…..

She wore, She wore, She wore a yellow ribbon!

She wore a yellow ribbon in the merry month of May.

And when, I asked, her why she wore that ribbon.

She said its for the Arsenal and we’re going to Wembley!

Wembley! Wembley! We’re the famous Arsenal and we’re going to Wembley..

Bad!

Bad!

Horrid moment!!

Horrid to witness.....

Horrid!!!!!

Cruel!!

What a mess....

Ghastly…

Heartbreaking to watch....

And Heartbreaking….

What more does Arsene Wenger need to see?

What more do the players need to see?

What we fans don’t need to see is a replication of the scenes we all witnessed after our last trip to Wembley!

There should be no need for words.

This is an FA Cup Final and every single person involved at Arsenal should know what that means.

Pride, passion, attitude and 100% commitment….

Get out there boys and give everything you have to make sure this trophy with the big ears comes home and you all join the greats who have done so before you….

Can we??

Can we??

 COYRRG’S!!!!!!

    Arteta to do what Cesc, RVp failed to do… lift a cup.

    Scott how quiet are the bin dippers down your patch since their collapse? :-)

    then again they will touch on it quickly in their post after reading yours…

    Morning again. Truly Churchillian Rico.
    Blimey, it’s muggy in London this morning.
    As long as we show up we should be ok I think. I have got my lucky t-shirt on. The one with the egg stain on the front.

  21. Scott From Oz

    May 17, 2014 at 10:48am

    Adam, I have Ramsey away on, and he’s playing, so we just win….it’s easy when you have a plan :)

    Come on you Gunners.

    Make us feel good today.

    Go into the History books as the team who started the new era of trophies for this great Club.

    The Arsenal fans deserve this trophy.

    Keep calm and dont play with the handbrake on. If we score early go for goals to kill them off.

    If they take the lead, throw the kitchen sink at it.

    Make this final memorable.

    Lets see the masses in the Streets of Islington tomorrow in full party mood. This is the thing that lifts players on to bigger things more than anything else in my opinion.

    Hull relying on showing pictures of our pre planned open top bus even though they have p.anned the same thing.

    Lets not give them respect and smash them.

    I am going for Ozil to be MOM and Poldi to score.

    It’s like a team who’s going to win the FA Cup, we shall not be moved.

    Am still b shitting myself. My eyes are twitching. My limbs quaking. Lips drawn back. Hair disheveled. Clothes torn and reeking of stale alcohol. God help me. It’s cup final. Am petrified. The Ghost of Birmingham is back to haunt me.

    May 17, 2014 at 12:10pm

    Rico we haven’t won a trophy in a decade. Am in turmoil. What if we bottle it again? Hull has nothing to lose. They haven’t got players going to the world cup. It’s their cup final literally. Bruce could as well park his bug gut in front of goal and play for penalties. Christ help me.

  32. rico

    May 17, 2014 at 12:12pm

    This group of players are experienced internationals Goonster, as long as they are all up for it, we should be ok…

    Just ;)

    May 17, 2014 at 12:15pm

    Rico in 2011 we had the same “experienced internationals” yet succumb to a relegated Birmingham filth. To make matters worse obafemi martins a shit of a player scored the easiest of goals. Even the dead queen mother won’t miss from such range.

  40. rico

    May 17, 2014 at 12:31pm

    I’m not overly confident either goonster, but no point in getting stressed about something which hasn’t even happened yet….

  41. goonster

    May 17, 2014 at 12:34pm

    Do you think we can win this? Seriously I want to believe. I want to get out of this state I am. Am a mess. I ve sent the baby to her granny’s and cassie is in the hospital. Am alone rico and shitting myself.

    How is Cassie doing?

    On the David Carradine programme Kung Fu , the Shaolin Monk guy with the ping pong ball eyes said something that has stuck with me throughout life . Addressing the young pupil he said :- “”Grasshopper why worry , circumstances will not change. “” I guess it’s just another way of saying Que Sera,
    Take a deep breath Goonie , cream rises to the top and in this case we are the cream.

  50. Adam

    May 17, 2014 at 12:44pm

    My cousin back home…the rat bastartd has been calling and leaving me messages in scary voices. He even sent me a compilation of our biggest cock ups. The final against galatasary, the cup final that made Owen the puffed up turd he is. The barfa final where we couldn’t hold on. The chelsea final when Drogba hit us real hard and to cap it off the Birmingham disaster. Am at my wits end adam.

  60. goonster

    May 17, 2014 at 1:00pm

    Uhhhh AK you re up to something there. Nigerian guiness huh? It just might work but the question is where to find it????

  61. goonster

    May 17, 2014 at 1:05pm

    Yeah I know but I was hoping you know where I can find one on such short notice. You know as a cabbie. You guys know all kinds of stuff. Be a pal kev and point me in the direction :grin:

    May 17, 2014 at 1:07pm

    the big game approaches, good luck to us all!!

  63. ozgunner

    May 17, 2014 at 1:15pm

    Goonster – You have the right to worry given the teams poor showing so many times this year, when Wenger and his charges have built games up like this. Bit of a no win really mate – if we win everyone says, so they should. If we mess it up people, the press mainly, will destroy us. Hard situation. We just need to play the game and get settled, we might have to be patience but an early goal would be brilliant and mess up their game plan big time i think

  64. potter

    May 17, 2014 at 1:16pm

    You can get Nigerian Guiness on line ,

    Just send them your bank account details, all security pins , and your name and passport number and you will be fine.

    May 17, 2014 at 1:19pm

    Afternoon All..(sound like a copper).
    Out with some west ham men last night,all asking me what score to-day,surely it will be 4 or 5 nil won’t it.
    What have they got up front nothing,they will pack the midfield and hope to get a free kick here or there.
    So what will we do,
    We can hope wenger will instruct our players to get wide,Hull will then double up the full backs,to stop that route,this when Podolski,must drift inside and get the knock downs from Giroud,with us having to cross from deeper positions,this is how we should approach this game to start with.
    If we can get an early goal,it should be 4/5 nil.

  66. goonster

    May 17, 2014 at 1:20pm

    Oz we have a truck load of players heading to the world cup. I don’t think they ll wanna get stuck in and risk injury. That’s my biggest fear. Hull ll make this as physical as they can. The question is can we dish it our back. Personally I ll rest ozil and start with TR7 Rambo and arteta. Poldi ll always bring his A game to the pitch. OG has to play to put pressure on their cb pairing with leaves one more player and trust me it’s not santi!

  67. AndrewH13

    May 17, 2014 at 1:20pm

    Afternoon house. What a tense day for me. Used to enjoy being in finals, now it just seems too important that we win. Let’s do it.

    Agony already as my number 2 and hometown team Southend go 0-2 down in playoff 2nd leg. But back to 2-2 now :-)

    Read two papers this morning, Sun shows Fabianski, The Times Schezny in goal?

  74. ozgunner

    May 17, 2014 at 1:30pm

    what we know for sure goonster is we have more than enough ability to push them over, mind sets therefore are everything and i think given it could be a first real success for many of them, we’ll get it done 3-1 my money is on.

  75. AndrewH13

    May 17, 2014 at 1:30pm

    tell you what, that must be the softest run to a cup final in it’s history for Hull – no one real test, they even got Sunderland when the wheels were falling off. Middlesbrough, Southend, Brighton and Sheffield United, what a easy run that is. Today they come back down to earth. :-)

  99. goonster

    that we are about to see our beloved Arsenal win some silverware
    I have just watched Rambo being interviewed ( on BT sport) and the way he came over tells me the team will be really up for it.
    Happy veiwing all you gooners where ever you are.

    I feel that if we do not loose, we will wipe the floor with them today.

    I hope we dish out a thrashing. Its been a long time overdue. And the highest scoring Final record badly needs to be broken and smashed to smithereens

  109. devilgunner

    May 17, 2014 at 2:38pm

    yeah Ozzie. I hope we kick their ass into oblivion this time around.

  112. devilgunner

    May 17, 2014 at 2:41pm

    you know what mates??? 2-0, 3-0 will not satisfy me. I want a big one. I want one for every season without a trophy now. I want them all to turn up for once and butcher them in a way that their day at Wembley will be ruined. I want the Hull fans to leave the ground at Half time as it will be a point of no return.

  113. ktr7

    May 17, 2014 at 2:41pm

    I hope you are right devil.hope this is one of those vintage arsenal days when wengerball clicks…

    Arsenal fans are really nervous today…imagine what Athletico madrid fans are feeling right now.it could all go tits up today if messi decides to come to the party despite doing so well for 37 games!!!

  117. ozgunner

    May 17, 2014 at 2:44pm

    devil – they are premier league opposition mate and they will die for their badge today – not sure there is any walkover going to happen here. 3-1 would do me nicely thank you

    Back in North London Rico, no more trips to bloody West London…

    A Stanstead would be nice…

  122. ozgunner

    May 17, 2014 at 2:46pm

    ktr7 – my money is on Barca as well – it went south in the last game for Athletico, should be over now – Real will beat them as well and no one will remember this season in a couple of years. Tough game this football lark

  138. ktr7

    May 17, 2014 at 3:46pm

    rico thats why am hoping we really turn on the style today.we need to shut them up.they are so deaperate to see us lose its pathetic.

  178. Hell Raiser

    May 17, 2014 at 5:12pm

    0-2 down. And now the niggly fouls will start. Time wasting. Bus parking. Mark my words. We are all over the place.

  179. Hell Raiser

    May 17, 2014 at 5:13pm

    that was nearly 0-3.

    I bet that all the neutrals and pundits who want Hull to win must be wanking themselves with delight.

    Come on, Arsenal. Three more!!!

  183. Hell Raiser

    Is Ozil on the pitch???

    Or is he still in the dressing room.?

  184. rico

    You gutless twit Probert!!

    Mind you Bacary’s rolls were a tad excessive!

  185. Hell Raiser

    NO YELLOW CARD????

    are you bloody serious you dick head?

  186. rico

    Goonie, Probert has no control of this game at all!

  187. Can'tBeArsed

    Plenty of time to turn this around Gooners.

    How did that jammy doughnut tsgh get a ticket !!! That’s what I wanna know.

  188. rico

    May 17, 2014 at 5:30pm

    And Ramsey agag, he’s not in the game at all…

  189. Hell Raiser

    May 17, 2014 at 5:30pm

    He is a lenient ref Rico.

    but that was a yellow card in all its glory and in every way.

    we cant seem to play our passing game. We have not managed to string more than 7 consecutive passes.

  190. Hell Raiser

    May 17, 2014 at 5:31pm

    Ramsey and Ozil are invisible.

    It seems as if we are playhing 4-1-2-1

    With a hole in the bloody midfield.

  191. rico

    May 17, 2014 at 5:32pm

    He’s more than that Devil….

  192. Hell Raiser

    May 17, 2014 at 5:32pm

    If we keep giving those type of corners we will not score a single one from there. We need the short corner to make them get out.

  193. BrainwashedKev

    May 17, 2014 at 5:35pm

    Well Wilshere and Flamini cannot be blamed for that appalling start…

  194. agirlagunner

    May 17, 2014 at 5:36pm

    These players won’t have a better time to shine, rico. That’s why I’m cross they look like they’re not up for it!!

    Barca winning so far. :(

  195. rico

    Giroud has lead in his boots!!

    Yes I know ;)

  196. BrainwashedKev

    May 17, 2014 at 5:37pm

    Wenger needs to make some tactical changes at half-time, that’s if he is capable…

    Giroud really isn’t gonna do it today…

  197. tsgh

    No Oxlade-Chamberlain is a massive blow…

    Sanogo is really no fcuking option…

  199. rico

    May 17, 2014 at 5:40pm

    Kev, our bench lacks options imo. I’d get Monreal on and push Gibbs up for pace….

    If they wake up, we can win this….

  202. tsgh

    May 17, 2014 at 5:43pm

    Ramsey too deep…
    It was going to be tight…
    Poldi too static…

  203. rico

    May 17, 2014 at 5:45pm

    Too deep, he’s invisible….

    Big H/T for Arsene Wenger….

  204. Can'tBeArsed

    May 17, 2014 at 5:45pm

    tsgh, any more inside info on what time our player will be sent off, guessing it must be 2nd half now.

  205. rico

    May 17, 2014 at 5:45pm

    We have nothing in front of goal, nothing whatsoever…

  206. rico

    May 17, 2014 at 5:48pm

    What is wrong with Ramsey???

    Is he fit??

  207. Hell Raiser

    May 17, 2014 at 5:48pm

    We are sitting deep and allowing them all the space…..when we should press them high up and giving them little to breath about

  208. bradlop

    May 17, 2014 at 5:49pm

    That last play says it all. Santa knowing Giroud is too slow for a through ball.

  209. AndrewH

    May 17, 2014 at 5:53pm

    No pace, no invention, no concentration, no guts
    Suppose otherwise, we are doing ok

  210. Joaquim Moreira

    May 17, 2014 at 5:54pm

    ozil out and Tr in..
    We are not putting pressure ahead and there is plenty of space between lines.
    We have to be warriors players and no superstars

  211. BrainwashedKev

    May 17, 2014 at 5:57pm

    Mick, you said it mate….

    I could without it tbh, but I’d take that now

  212. rico

    May 17, 2014 at 5:57pm

    Pace… we lack bloody pace….

    Going forward and up front we are so so timid….

  213. Hell Raiser

    May 17, 2014 at 5:57pm

    looking at the first goal again.

    Poldi’s fault and lack of marking plus he is looking everywhere bar the ball and opponent.

  214. bradlop

    May 17, 2014 at 5:57pm

    Wow Sanchez what a cracker of a goal.

  215. rico

    May 17, 2014 at 5:58pm

    We seriously need to come out of the blocks second half….

  216. ozgunner

    we look frozen again – poor at the back and nothing up front at all – dear oh dear

    You put players on both posts’ at corners….

    Fcuking basic defending

  219. ozgunner

    May 17, 2014 at 5:59pm

    we do Rico and have for some time now – Wenger is the only one that can change that – fast break days dead and buried – they might crumble to errors as they get closer to winning it though

  220. ozgunner

    May 17, 2014 at 6:00pm

    need to level it up first 10/15 then we can finish the job

  221. Hell Raiser

    May 17, 2014 at 6:01pm

    Oh welll………..once we were 0-2 down in 1930 vs Hull and then we won 4-2 over two games.

    Malta was winning 1-0 vs Spain in the first half in 1983 and then got thumped 12-1 in the second.

    And once with 20 mins to go Arsenal were loosing 1-2 vs Sheffield Wednesday, Campbell came on and we won 7-3.

    so there is still time.

  222. AndrewH

    May 17, 2014 at 6:01pm

  223. rico

    May 17, 2014 at 6:02pm

    Spot on Kev…

    Wishful thinking Oz, I reckon Hull will be even more up for the second half..

    A few of ours really need to wake up and realise where they are!!

  224. Hell Raiser

  226. Hell Raiser

    May 17, 2014 at 6:07pm

    Sanogo and Wilshere warming up.

    I bet that Hull players are quaking in their pants and creaming with fear.

  227. Hell Raiser

    I am sorry mates.

    we will not win it.

  229. Hell Raiser

    May 17, 2014 at 6:18pm

    Of course it was.

    We are upping the tempo.

    But we will not score.

    The attack is too static

    We need a proper winger

    and we need to put up a second striker.

  230. Hell Raiser

    May 17, 2014 at 6:21pm

    Aston Villa (h), Stoke (A) and now Hull (final)…….games we should not have lost. We failed to turn up.

    The current version of Kevin Campbell (Sir no goal yet) has come on.

    Will he turn it around???

    I doubt it

    We will not score.

    hull are a 2nd version of Mourinho’s tactics. They do not want to score……but their intention is to hinder every AFC player from playing the ball. Even putting them off balance.

    And its working

    I thought that the AFC players should steamroller and shatter themselves in the record books. I was right.

    they have steamrollered us the fans and shattered every fan in goonerdom with this performance…….even if they win it.

    Arsene Wenger is wanted for attempted murder after an elaborate 9 year assassination plot was uncovered on Saturday evening.

    The Arsenal manager undertook a flamboyant attempt at ending the life of Vital Arsenal editor, Rocky7.

    The plot came to light following the FA Cup final on May 17th 2014 when it became obvious that the Frenchman had spent the last 9 years trying to sneakily kill the rotund Yorkshire via the means of lethal heart attack.

    After 8 seasons without a trophy, Wenger contrived to ensure the Gunners fell 2 goals behind to the un-fancied Hull City within 7 minutes of the start of the FA Cup final only to spurn chance after chance and hitting the woodwork before finally winning the cup in the most dramatic of circumstances in an attempt to induce cardiac arrest in the internet muppet to end his sad little life.

    Wenger`s plot was foiled however following a slight oversight. Rocky7`s was able to endure the ordeal as his heart had already been stolen by Arsenal back in 1987.

    Arsene Wenger is still at large and was last spotted on the streets of London sporting a soggy shirt and a smile.

    Morning Dev,Ng Rico and all

    The Hell Raiser… I like that Moniker…

    Where is Micko with his sore head?

    Syg, did you wrestle any more snakes…

    I see Kroenke managed to get himself to Wembley…..

    Morning Ts, 5-0 for me any day of the week…

    May 18, 2014 at 8:14am

    Morning Rico and all. It’s gonna be super hot in Islington today.
    Breakfast with Kev in Dishoom first though.

  357. tsgh

    May 18, 2014 at 8:15am

    Lol Rico.. I know you would say that :-)
    I know I am a bit f’ed so…
    As my father in law said to me once when he found out what I do back then… he was like you must be mad to jump from an aeroplane trusting a rope and a cloth to save your life…

    and then volunteer to be blind folded, chased by alsations and 2 para and 3 nights sleep deprivation…

    The price I had to pay for all of that ?

    Now I wish I can have more than 7 hours sleep a night :D

  358. rico

    May 18, 2014 at 8:15am

    Morning Adam, you going on the parade?

    Have a fab time and a lovely breakfast first, wish I could be there….

  359. Adam

    May 18, 2014 at 8:16am

    Watching Kroenke yesterday, two things struck me. Firstly, he seemed wildly excited so I wondered if he ‘got it’ at last. Secondly that I thought he was jumping about so wildly that his syrup might fly off and land on Gazidis’ head.

  360. tsgh

    May 18, 2014 at 8:17am

    Kev, I am told highbury corner was maniac last night… :-)

    You didn’t have anything to do with it? :P

  361. Adam

    May 18, 2014 at 8:19am

    Rico. Experience has told me that the crowds in Islington will be epic today. We will probably try to get a look at the team but it will be difficult and the searing heat won’t help. The bus will go right past where I lived as a kid so there’s a bit of nostalgia thrown in too. We will try.
    Breakfast at Dishoom could be interesting. Sorry you and brudder can’t be there. :)

  362. Lee

    May 18, 2014 at 8:19am

    Boom boom boom get the fuck in there!!!
    Maureen how’s that trophy cabinet this season you poisonous vertically challenged c**t? How was the league title you shell suit wearing curly haired job dodging fucktards? Van rapist did you enjoy that? Well you got your 30 pieces of silver!! As for spxrs you really are the most deluded bunch of wankers that walk the planet
    Steve Bruce can fuck off, what a prick in his post match interview he was really embarrassing! Looks like Dean Windarse was hiding under Bruce’s jumper……
    My head hurts!!

    May 18, 2014 at 8:20am

  365. Lee

    May 18, 2014 at 8:22am

    Who actually went to the game?

  366. rico

    May 18, 2014 at 8:22am

    Morning Lee – well said…

    Had a sneaky feeling you’d have a bad head…. ;)

  367. tsgh

    May 18, 2014 at 8:22am

    the singing/atmosphere was epic…

    ‘2 nil up and you still f’ed it up.’..

    ‘we won the title in shite hart lane…

    ‘Robin she said no…’

    There is only 1 AW’

    :D :D

  368. Adam

    May 18, 2014 at 8:23am

    Morning brudder. Another early morning, post FA Cup classic from you.
    Did you see Kroenke have a ‘special’ word with Sagna?

  369. rico

    May 18, 2014 at 8:24am

    11.48pm Kev – Bless ya, thank you….

  370. rico

    May 18, 2014 at 8:24am

    And Arsene plonked a big fat kiss on Sagna’s head at the end.

    Could he yet stay??

  371. tsgh

    May 18, 2014 at 8:27am

    It will be amazing if he stayed…

  372. rico

    May 18, 2014 at 8:28am

    Suntan cream on then Adam, hope it’s a great day. I suspect you’ll have a blast…

  373. rico

    May 18, 2014 at 8:31am

  374. tsgh

    May 18, 2014 at 8:32am

    Micko, wakey wakey !!

  375. Adam

    May 18, 2014 at 8:33am

    Sad to report that Steve Bruce was harpooned by a Japanese Whaling ship last night when he took a swim.

  376. tsgh

    May 18, 2014 at 8:36am

    His excuse was that white was unflattering on him…

    Pep after Ramsey allegedly…

    May 18, 2014 at 8:38am

    My mate is there for the parade and has a chance of getting into the Town Hall,lucky man!!

  378. rico

    May 18, 2014 at 8:44am

    All joking aside about Bruce, he looks an unwell man….

    At times I thought he was going to do a Tommy Cooper on us….

  379. goonster

    May 18, 2014 at 8:49am

    I ve been drifting in and out of sleep guys. This feeling is epic. Better than sex. Dang my kingdom for a trip to Islington now to witness the parade. She wore she wore.

  380. goonster

    May 18, 2014 at 8:52am

    Did any of y’all seen Sanogo’s tweet just before kick off? That kid is gonna be a legend. Am still buzzing guys.

  381. rico

    May 18, 2014 at 8:55am

    Hi Goonster….

    If Sanogo can sort his brain and feet out, he could one day be a good footballer….

    Loan him out to a newly promoted PL side for the season and see if he improves….

  382. rico

    May 18, 2014 at 8:57am

    The players will travel from the Emirates Stadium to Islington Town Hall, Upper Street and back in two open top buses. The approximate timings are:

    11am: the parade starts next to the stadium at Drayton Park, by Martineau Road. From here the players will travel in open top buses along Drayton Park, Aubert Park, Highbury Park, Highbury Grove, St Paul’s Road and into Upper Street.

    12noon: the parade will arrive at the Town Hall, where there will be a short appearance by the players outside. This will be followed by a closed reception in Islington Assembly Hall.

    1pm: the parade will leave the Town Hall and head back towards the Emirates Stadium where there will be a team appearance on the Emirates Stadium podium.

    May 18, 2014 at 8:58am

    A few several thousand mate …

    I must say I really respect the hull fans..

    no sense of entitlement at all… they came for a party.. they thought it was going to be their day when they went ahead but we came back hard…

    After the game we traveled with some of them in the same carriage all the way to Victoria station…

    On the tube to central London, we started singing …’you were 2 nil up and your f’ed it up’ they even joined in…

    Super atmosphere/experience…

    I will add Hull to my next season away list now…

  391. tsgh

    May 18, 2014 at 9:12am
