Deja Vu All Over Again

Well, its February and its all going balls up again! I have been watching Arsenal for 52 years, and I believe that the performance against Liverpool was in the top 5 abject that I have ever seen. I do believe that our best eleven, and in that I include Ramsey, Walcott and Flamini are (I exclude Wils...

RVP

Well, we all know it would happen, apart from Arsene Wenger, RVP will leave at the end of the season for whichever club will pay him the most money, be it Citeh or Chelski. Let's face it, he is a mercenary like the rest of footballers, none of them care about the clubs they play for, or the fans who...

Total Humiliation - Time to go Wenger

What can you say? Every true fan could see this coming for a few seasons as we have had an ever decreasing decent team, playing football that has become so inept and predictable compared to our "great teams", glossed over by pundits who claimed we were still playing the best football apart from Barc...

Hapless Djourou

Well, we got through the Champions League playoff, but with no thanks to Djourou. How much longer is Wenger going to indulge this man? He is absolutely useless, and has been responsible for so many goals against that he is a total embarrassment to Arsenal FC. We can only hope that a major singing at...

Defensive weakness

Once again Djourou was a total disaster against Boca. I have said before, and I state again, this player is one of the worst centre halves I have ever seen, and I go back to the days of Ian Ure and Laurie Brown and Terry Neill playing in this position. Once again he gave away a goal when the ball wa...

Another Swiss Roll?

I have written before about the total ineptness of Johan Djourou, and his performance against England never showed this better. He was pathetic from start to finish, a total embarrassment, and I laughed continually at his total inability to have a clue how to defend. He was so poor that Mark Lawrens...

No Defence

How much longer do we have to put up with defenders who cannot defend? I have been staggered by the number of people who have thought that Djourou is the answer to our centre half problems, when it is patently obvious that he is a very poor defender who just cannot cope when up against a tall, power...

No Defence

Once again it is our defence that has let us down big time this season, as it has since 2008, when we should have won the league, but everything went wrong at Birmingham, and we never seem to have recovered from that game, as the same thing has happened every season since. We have full backs who can...

Carling Cup Final

Well, memories of 1969 and Ian Ure and Bob Wilson came flooding back yesterday. But let's face it, Birmingham deserved it, they certainly wanted it more than the Arsenal players. What on earth was Wenger thinking when picking Rosicky, he is finished and should be offloaded ASAP. However, I read on F...

Time For Reality Mr Wenger

:cry: Hopefully Arsene's comments after the Chelsea game will not be what he is thinking in private. He must now realise what the majority of Arsenal supporters knew quite a while ago, that this team is nowhere good enough to win a trophy. We will exit the League Cup this week as well! Quite frankly...

Current Team

I watched the Fulham match on EPSN and am already convinced that we will win nothing this year. The team appeared to lack commitment and self-belief, and it is sad to see this so early in a season which started so well. I think this stems from those two very unfortunate defeats in Manchester, which ...
