WTF is going on with this ref in the Arsenal game...!
Dirty cheating cnuts
now now you wouldnt be saying that if you was winning.
Not many opportunities to see if that's true though!
We may aswell play 12 outfield players from now on....
That ref is the ref from the Ireland v France game - And gave the bin-dippers a pen when Gerrard done his starfish dive against Athletico in the 93rd min....
As a neutral, I think Arsenal had their fair share of 'ref on their side' in the first half, and yes the goal was dodgy. reminds me of a similar goal Thierry Henry scored when he was awarded a free kick when he was an Arse player back in the day.... I'm sure you know which one I'm on about Gooner.
Win some and lose some mate.
I bet Wenger doesn't. He wouldn't have seen it.
Portsmouth i think that was - But that was a direct free kick - the freekick they had was indirect, the ref stands in front of Sol etc etc!
Ian Harte started all the quick freekick thing - Leeds years ago against us at Highbury - Then everyone started doing it.
And as for the penalty 30 seconds earlier....
Still we'll do them at the Emirates; It's all about the away goal!
Said like a bitter yid mate.... ?!
I think porto a cheating ******** They kick lumps out of fabregas for 90 ,ins and whe they are touched they go down like a ton of bricks. ( i am a celtic fan and still bitter)
I like arsenal and there style, but come on hit a shot now and again. I think they take that 1 extra touch far to often.
I hope you pump them at home
Arsenal 3 - 0 porto second leg
Nope. But having no need to be biased, Spurs or Arsenal..... I prefer the guys that play just off Tottenham High Rd. :icon_thumright:
Arsene "I didn't see it" Wenger is laughable. Brilliant eye for undiscovered talent, **** eye for everything else.
Be honest, are you getting a little bit pee'd off with it all now?? 4 or 5 years waiting for these "kids" to step up.
Arsenal ain't that much of a young team really..... Arshavin, Gallas, Van Persie, Almunia, Sagna, Rosiky, Eduardo, Eboue... all over 26.
Then you've got Cliche, Vermaelen etc... not exactly kids are they.
Wenger and his "I didn't see it" policy is spot on - No good manager slags off his own players in the media.
He has a good eye for Doubles though...:icon_thumright:
As for the 5 years - Football is a fickle world - Only one side can win the Premiership each year; Just look at what Manyoo, Chavski, Spuds and the bin-dippers have spent in that time...! We have a new ground to pay for and have to live within our means because of that - But the end fact is we'll be self sustainable in a few seasons.
Some 'Fans' seem to think they have a divine right to winning trophys!
The FA Cup has been a problem as you can't always play your full strength side in all your games; you have prioritize - Champions League, Premiership etc.
As for the 'Kids'
Clichy is 22
Djourou is 21
Gibbs is 20
Diaby is 23
Denilson is 21 (Just...)
Song is 22
Nasri is 22
Ramsey is 20
Wilshere is 18
Merida is 20
Vela is 20
Walcott is 21
Bentner is 21
Hardly middle aged are they!
These are all first team players that (Apart from Theo £7m Ramsey £5m) we've paid virtually nothing for if they've not come through our youth system...!
If RVP hadn't got his leg smashed by the dirty Italian in a fcukin 'Friendly' then wed be arguably top of the league.
No other team has done or would even consider doing what we're in the top half of the table - Regarding youth - Even Villa have spent big on playing smash and grab long pump the wing, whip in by Young etc!
The biggest problem in Football at the moment is fickle fans and the ticket prices/Player wages. This is being driven by an unrealistic world created by the Chavs, Re*l,Citeh etc.
I for one can't wait for the day that Football goes bust - There'll be some big clubs in big trouble within the next5/10 years.
Just look at the bin-dippers No money to spend, no new stadium and owned by foreign investors, intent on only making themselves money.
Mayoo have shown that even they have had to cut back If they hadnt sold R*naldo for £80m theyd have lost £40m last year No club apart from the chavs, citeh and Re*l can keep that up!
As for the Spuds down the road - Lets see how they spend when they've built the new stadium.... In their best season for 15+ years they finished 5th behind us; after we had our worst season for 15+ years....
I do get frustarted by our lack of signings at times - We just need a striker and a keeper and we'll be sorted (+ maybe cover for Song)
To sumerise; What other manager in the world could do better than Wenger? Apart from Manyoo - Every club in the world would drop their managers at the drop of a hat for Arsene.
P.S. So Aythreee - Who do you support then?!
Nope. It makes him look like an idiot. I'm not saying he should slag off his players, but saying he "didn't see it" every single time is just pathetic and makes him look like a twat.
Why can't he just fess up to things sometimes? In that respect he's worse than Fergie... and that's hard to be!
It's not about divine rights, but Wenger keeps talking about his young team and how they are ready to take over the world..... but years later, nothing.
At the top of their game, pretty, very pretty. But year after year they prove that they have no real substance.
Problem is... teams just aren't scared of Arsenal. Not like a few years back. Play with a bit of muscle and they know that arsenal probably won't have a reply.
Clichy is 24, Djourou 23/24, Diaby may be 24.
It's all well and good naming Arsenal's squad but let's look what is probably their strongest eleven...
Subs: Eduardo 27, Silvestre 54, Eboue 26/27, Walcott 21, Bendtner 22, etc etc.
Not old... but definitely not as young as Wenger makes out.
Compare that with other "top" teams and there's hardly any difference, exception on Che$ki maybe.
Not much point in that statement.
EVERY team has got a "reason" why they ain't top of the league:
Man U losing Tevez/Ronaldo plus injuries to all their defenders....
Liverpool injuries to Torres, Gerrard, Johnson, Benayoun, etc etc....
Chelsea if they fall off will have some "reason" why it happened.
Have a guess.........
Ref did obstruct Sol and was mad keen on getting the ball for the porto players to take quickly which was a bit strange,could of been worse he could of missed a stonewall Arsenal penalty a minute before
lol thanks for that!
Bring on the return leg....
