Were you in row 15 last night? Worry not! Your desperate negativity can be cured

By Dr Billy “The Dog” McGraw

Senior Psychologist, Hospital of the North Circular Road, Enfield.

So, my friends, were you sitting in row 15 last night in the lower tier of the north bank?  Just behind the goal.

Did you spend the whole evening saying, in a monotone, “Spend some fucking money”?    In between saying in a sarcastic manner, “Thank you Wenger” every time you perceived that one of the players who you have previously labelled as “not fit to wear the shirt” (but of whom you now think is the final chance we have of any salvation and around whom a new team must be built) went down with what you in your rampant and unrestrained negativity, defined as a “career ending moment”…

Well, if that is you, fear not, for I am hear to diagnose, support and guide you back into being a human again.

Now it is going to be hard because you are a trifle overweight.  Too many burgers perhaps?  You need to watch that.  Toddle over to the GP when you have a mo, and then remember that weight and fitness is about just two things.  One is eating less, the other is exercising more.  All those bits about having a “big frame” or “slow metabolism” are just silly stories.  I refer you to last Thursday’s New Scientist if you want more info, but overall it is simple.  Eat less, exercise more.

So having done the physical, let’s look at your mental position.

You are primarily suffering from Aggravated Mental Complaint Syndrome mixed with Wengerian Father Fixation.   You see the Arsenal manager as a person of authority, and that clearly causes you a problem.  Rather than engage in sensible organised thought patterns you brain has become locked onto this man, and in your simplistic mental manner his removal will solve your problems.

In short you are patriphobic and suffer also from Tediousity Disorder combined with Degenerative Slogan Psychosis.

As a result you have a touch of mental diminution (some logical thinking will help you here – try to avoid slogans for a while).  Observing you I suspect that the left side of your brain which handles speech has become underused through your reliance on meaningless sloganising, This however can be cured.  Do more exercise.  It releases endorphins and stimulates the blood supply.   You’ll be applying logical argument with proper examples in no time.

Watch Arsenal Live Streams With

However this may not be enough to remove your next medical condition: Turgid Uninformed Retro Non-realistic Institutional Pathology (or Turnip as we doctors call it) a disorder which requires you to mumble the same phrase over and over again at your hated substitute father figure.

Of course what you need to do is get out more, talk to people, gain a few friends, and become a social animal.  But this serious need that you have simply to sloganise everything (Degenerative sloganisticism as we medics call it) is holding you back.

So what to do?  Well, it cost you around £40 to watch that match last night.  And throughout you moaned.  Moan, moan, moan, moan.  You never stopped.  You made yourself even more depressed than you were when you lumbered into your seat, and boy you were depressed then.  Supporters to your left, right, behind and in front politely suggested that you be quiet, but you belligerently refused.  (Rampant belligerent refusal syndrome)

Thus the first thing to do is to stop spending money on attending games and instead learn to smile.  You do this by moving your mouth about a bit.

I also believe you suffer from multiple phobias including…

Acousticphobia (you really can’t stand it when Arsenal score and the rest of us cheer can you?),

Alektorophobia (not much to do with being at the Arsenal but I thought I would mention it anyway),

Allodoxaphobia (and I have to say I have never seen a worse case),




Xanthophobia (during away games)

And most of all – overwhelming totally absolutely Hedonophobia.

Naturally my course of treatment involves you going to the Emirates on match nights and standing outside the ground.  You will save your £40 (which will be my fee – a postal order is fine) and you can be bitter, twisted and sad to your hearts content.  I hope that makes you feel a lot better.

Oh, and by the way, if you feel like writing to Untold and saying “is this supposed to be funny”, I said it first.  And we’ve had the, “this is the saddest stupidist piece I have ever read,” bit.  And the “I used to read Untold but I’m never going to again.”

Coming soon… the AAA people who can’t find our defensive midfield

  • Jimbeam

    It sounds like you are happy with mediocrity and have a distinct dislike towards fans who might have a bit more ambition for their team than you do however fat and phobic they may be.

  • Mike

    No, I wasn’t but I was sitting close to these muppets. They do this every game and can’t seem to stop themselves.

    They will always shout “shoot” when anyone gets within 20 yards of the penalty area and moan that the player should have passed if he shoots and misses.

    At the beginning of one season they were berating the players for never shooting from outside the box – oblivious to the fact that the team who had scored the most goals from outside the box the previous season was…….Arsenal.

    One particular Saturday, I heard them shouting at Wenger that he should stop playing zonal marking. That very morning I had read an article by one of our players saying how that they were getting very used to playing man-for-man since they stopped playing zonal marking some six weeks earlier.

    One game when we had won 5-0, they wandered off moaning that we should have won by more FFS

    Honestly they make your ears bleed with their incessant 90 minutes of “I know everything and the club, Wenger and the players know nothing” attitude game after game.

    These people do not realise how offensive their attitude is and the displeasure their constant griping brings to those around them. I actually said to fellow season ticket holders close by last night (and they agreed), that it will be muppets like those in row 15 that will drive me away well before Gazidis or Wenger ever will.

    Brilliant read.

  • geez

    probably quite funny, but so boring I couldn’t finish reading it, sorry….

  • Epicurean

    Lol nice psycho-troll Dr Bill, do you know if he has infected the genepool?

  • Matt Clarke

    It’s good to see such a generous and kind response.
    I do hope that this poor guy and any friends in a similar situation are able to take full advantage of this offer.

    It might be difficult to organise (as we know it appears there are so many of them) but if we look at similar dependency groups we might find some useful tips. A group name, for instance. How about Anti-Arsenal Anonymous?

  • Andrew Crawshaw

    Billy, I think I had his cousin sitting a couple of seats away from me in row 3 upper East stand! No joy at our good moves and constant bitching at every missed pass, less than perfect touch etc. makes you wonder why they put themselves through it. I must say though that the atmosphere was much better than at the travesty of the Villa game. All credit to the Fener fans for their support even if it was rather repetitative. Our away fans at Fulham were far more versatile and just as loud.

  • Mike

    You should next to them Geez – it’s soul destroying and a huge relief to see them exposed for what they are!

  • Anders

    Bless yous!

  • mark

    I hear you my good man, I hear you.

    The team plays great football – needs improvement in the final 3rd, but we have some seriously world class talent; I suspect Cazorla, Wilshere, Walcott, Sagna and maybe even Ramsey would get a game for any club.

    We could do with a few more players though – although I wouldn’t be too disheartened to see Zelalem, Gnabry and Frimpong getting a run out.

    In my humble opinion, we’re being a bit too ambitious with the signings we are rumoured to in for players from Madrid will not want to take a step down – and will be demotivated if they do. We need the best up and coming players from the one tier down, or from lesser leagues – of which Germany used to be one…

    Fellaini, for example, fits this mould, as would McCarthy at Wigan, and yes – Newcastle’s Cabaye etc.

  • potter

    Your unconcealed conceit is only outweighed by your excessive verbosity.

  • north upper

    These guys must also sit in the north upper as well. they always want to know if there is a fire drill.

  • the mickster

    i assume they are also the same said muppets who spent the early part of last year slating Ramsey !!
    what annoys me most is these people never seem to learn !
    Perhaps as a solution we sshould introduse physcometric testing when you apply for season tickets, therefore all the people who go to football to have a good time and cheer on the team can sit in one stand, and all the numptys who want to bitch & moan moan all game can sit in another, come to think of it, they don’t even need to sit in the stand, they can sit outside and moan, as they don’t need to see anything to moan anyway !

  • Adam

    Insulting people merely diminishes whatever point you tried, unsuccessfully, to make.

  • MM

    Very true.

    I just an AAA website (Arsenal News Review). No posts about games since we lost. That’s 3 games they didnt write about. They just cant stand Arsenal winning.

    They must actually be Spurs fans

  • Shakabula Gooner

    I seriously question your medical credentials but not your sense of humor!
    Please note that we need every one to come to the Ems – even those who seem to leave in pains anytime Arsenal plays well. We just need them to shout, rant and moan less. I think a good dentist can help with the right wiring or the right sedation that lasts no less than 2hours.

  • GoonerDog

    Not sure you would be quite so cocky to his face. Never mind only about 15 of us will ever read it.

  • goonerck

    The attitude of some of our(?) “Supporters”(?) is pathetic, for me attending The Arsenal usual takes up a w.end,involves flights, trains, buses & having to stay overnight as well as the cost of the ticket and I do it to SUPPORT the Arsenal not nag, if more true fans followed suit it could help lift the team & show that us true SUPPORTERS will continue to do that -SUPPORT! afterall our very own motto means Victory Through Harmony.

    So all those doom & gloom merchants do as the author suggests & wait outside the emirates, save your money cause it will give those who actually want to SUPPORT the team a chance to do so.

    Come on you Gooners!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mickey Finn

    A lot of bitter fans on here as well. Not getting enough fibre? Or nooky?

  • Matt

    I am very regular Mickey and i saw your wife last night after the game. so wrong on both counts. Cheers!!

  • GunnerLoveIt


    It’s in the newsnow feed so a few more than 15 I reckon.
    Great article that sums up some of the idiots that hold season tickets. I’d be 100% sure they moan about the price of them and then renew them every year. Seriously, Wenger can’t hear you! The only way he’ll hear anything is if you stop buying your season ticket.

  • Magambo

    @matt hahaha exactly the same as my thoughts…!

  • para

    Off topic:
    Please do an article on who are going to join the first team this season, who are returning from injury from the youth and where they are going to possibly fit into the team.
    It seems like Diaby, Frimpong and Miyaichi, Sanogo and Park are there, what about Akpom, Gnabry, Eisfeld. And Zelalem, ok a little too young perhaps.
    We saw a little of Miyaichi last night, but i’ve been waiting for Frimpong and Diaby to get back out there too, in the end they either make it or not, they are getting older. AND we do not have anyone else, at least for the moment.
    So either we are going to see these players much more this season, or we are going to get 6 to 7 new players.

  • para

    Mind you Bendtner’s name is still on the list, but i do not expect him to be playing any time soon.
    OMG, Bendtner is coming back to regain his “rightful place as striker” in the Arsenal team.
    Ok, OK forgive me, but it’s all getting to me a little too much, and before the boys in white come with the straight jackets, i’d better stop now.

  • Jim beam – we have lost one game in our last 14. If that is mediocrity, then virtually every club is mediocre.

  • Gooner Dog – just to clarify, Untold gets between 500,000 and 700,000 visits a month. I know we also get the few who complain about the articles, and quite why they come here I am not sure, but I guess some of that half million plus visits actually come here because they quite enjoy the bit of knock about.

  • I have a couple like this that sit in front of me and a bit to the right… we had words once after one of them repeatedly shouted ‘useless cunt’ at RvP while he was about to take a corner.

    I was surprised as they looked quite hard but somehow something in my tone of voice and body language managed to convince them I was more of a match for them (violence wise) which was probably not entirely true.

    We don’t have any eye-contact any more which is a shame as, it turned out, he was half right about RvP.

    Nothing, I suspect, will ever make them happy – I do feel sorry for them in a way.

    Dear Highly esteemed Colleague Dr. Billy McGraw ,

    Having throughly read your case study of said patient and your shrewd and detailed observations , I have come to the provisional diagnosis that it could be an atypical case of Anton’s Syndrome .
    Like many , I was under the impression that the syndrome was
    the inability of the person to differentiate the right from the left ; or was that right, from wrong ?
    Do peruse the following abbreviated article from Clinical Neurology ( for brevity ), or the full article from,

    Anton’s Syndrome

    Abstract :-

    Anton’s syndrome is arguably the most striking form of anosognosia. Patients with this syndrome behave as if they can see despite their obvious blindness.

    Case Report

    A 55-year-old man presented with a 3-week history of fever and night sweats followed by the sudden onset of odd behavior. He bumped into tables and chairs, was unable to reach out for a cup of coffee that was put in front of him, and noticed friends and family only when they talked to him. Despite the fact that he had obviously lost his sight and needed assistance in all activities of daily living, he did not complain. He denied being blind and came up with excuses whenever confronted with his handicap. He did not hesitate to describe details in his environment that apparently did not exist.

    Physician: How are you?
    Patient: Fine.
    Physician: Anything wrong with you?
    Patient: No. Everything’s perfect.
    Physician: Anything wrong with your vision?
    Patient: No. Works fine.
    Physician (showing a pen): Then can you tell me what this is?
    Patient: Doc, it’s so dark here; nobody can see anything.
    Physician (puts the light on although it is plain daylight): I put the light on. Can you now see what I have here?
    Patient: Look, I don’t want to play games with you.
    Physician (who is long and slender): Fair enough. But can you describe how I look?
    Patient: Sure. You are a small fat chap.

    Investigations –
    Transesophageal echocardiography revealed aortic valve vegetations. A diagnosis of infective endocarditis was made and empirical antibiotic treatment started. Despite various attempts, the infective agent could not be identified.

    Treatment –
    The patient received an aortic valvular prosthesis, and there were no further episodes of cerebral embolism. Within 2 weeks of the surgery, the patient gradually realized that he was blind, but remained rather unconcerned. He was not able to regain independence despite prolonged rehabilitation.

    For further information , view the following .You’d not be disappointed !Read the text but change the context .

  • GoonerPete

    I usually like this site, but singling people out for abuse is just not on.

    It just makes the site look pety.
    Usually it has alot of good things to say.

  • maxim

    Sorry I disagree with you. People complain that I’m being negative, but I’m really not. It’s negative to take the attitude that beating Fulham and Fenerbache somehow means we’ll be ok this season. Positivity is wanting to improve because by doing so we stand a better outcome of a great season. If you believe we’ll compete with our current squad, you’re lying to yourself, because all the laws of reality clearly point to that being a falsehood.

    I made the point last night that we ended the night with a front three of Ryo, Sanogo and Gibbs. Many thought this was perfectly acceptable as we were winning. Sure, it was acceptable if those introductions were by choice. They were the only players we could bring on. If players get tired at Spurs (which happens), those are our attacking options. Carling Cup options for a NLD… farcical regardless of the weight you’ve put into Wenger saying Sanogo will be a £50m player in 2 years.

  • @Maxim – wow, just WOW!

    My whole world has been turned upside down, black is east, up is white…

  • Sam

    Haha reading Matt’s comment’s always brings a smile to my face. He is just so immature that it is hilarious. LOL

  • Ray from Norfolk, Virginia

    This is very funny, particularly in the context of the moaners who attend the games. There should be a program for “angry” fans to sell their tickets at cost to real fans.
    Incidentally, geliophobia sounds good: most of these moaners never travel with the team.
    I admit to a very slight case of ereuthophobia as we have been less dominant at home than away.
    As to Anton’s, we could create a new syndrome: Invinciphobia, whereby the patient wishes secretely that AFC would lose despite being a fan, albeit of the “fair day only” variety.

  • Matt


    Cheers Sam, not sure if you were having a dig or no. Either way happy you get a laugh that’s the plan most of the time but people take things so seriously around here.

    Hi Doc McGraw,
    With respect, I think you may be maligning the folk in Row 15….just behind the goal, as you say.
    In 1943, I watched from high up BEHIND THE GOAL at Wembley Stadium when Arsenal beat Charlton Athletic by a cricket score. In the absence of binoculars, I missed all the goals particularly those our lads put in at the far end of the ground, which as you know is some miles from where I was standing. I spent the game muttering the most appalling obscenities.
    As a fellow member of your profession, MD(Bombay)(Failed), I subsequently learnt that there is a rare symptom of Tunnel Vision where, due to a jaundised view, the beholder is compelled to mutter uncontrollably.
    You may feel the need to confront the guys from Row 15 at the next game and apologise.

  • The font

    I was talking to a AAA member at last nights game he was telling me about a jumper he had bought from m.s he said the price was was miles to expensive absolutely. Useless just like the one he bought last year he said they should sack the manager of the shop if he could not give him top of the range gear for the price . I asked him. Will you be buying one next year of course otherwise I would have nothing else to moan about

  • Brickfields Gunners

    From the Medical Division of UA – part 2 ( of a 26 part series !The first part was posted sometime last week (I couldn’t trace it .)

    Phobias and football .

    1)Bacillophobia- Fear of microbes.
    2)Bacteriophobia- Fear of bacteria.
    ( Why the AKBs stay away from the AAAAs – they contaminate the faithful !)

    3)Ballistophobia- Fear of missiles or bullets.
    (What fans dread when playing Stoke and eons earlier Wimbeldon! And spittle ! Incoming ! )

    4)Bolshephobia- Fear of Bolsheviks.
    ( Never look a Uzbek turd in the …..)

    5)Barophobia- Fear of gravity.
    ( AAAAs screaming ,”Dear god ,this weight of impending success is too heavy for us !” .Oh ye of little faith !)

    6)Basophobia or Basiphobia- Inability to stand. Fear of walking or falling.
    (Spiritous unwilling or Fleshis weakinus )

    7)Bathmophobia- Fear of stairs or steep slopes.
    (‘ Tis a slippery slope that the AAAAs walk/ slide.)

    8)Bathophobia- Fear of depth.

  • Matt

    And your a weird type of stalker.

    You dont like me but follow me around like a lost lamb commenting of everything i do and worrying whether i really go to football or not.

    Strange fellow!!

  • Sam

    Maxim ripping all of his comments directly from the last post on Le Grove, FYI to anyone who values originality of thought and opinion.

  • Rupert Cook

    @Sam, so what if he is. He’s obviously too lazy to write the whole thing again. Do you blame him?

    The above piece is really unpleasant. This whole AAA/AKB nonsense is negative and divisive.

  • Matt the liar, fake season ticket holder, moron and cry baby 🙂

  • Rupert Cook

    @Bootoome, I thought you were quite a sensible person but I find it strange you continually attacking Matt like you are some teenager. Matt offered you a free ticket to the NLD if you met him and you seem to think this is a false offer. If he’s a liar you’d find out by arranging to meet him. What’s the problem?

    I wouldn’t pass up an offer like that. In fact if I weren’t doing a 20 mile walk supporting my wife’s charity efforts I’d take up Matt’s offer.

    Recently this blog has become a cauldron of invective. I visit quite a few blogs and encounter many different opinions about how the club is run but I have rarely seen so much bile between fans as I do on here. Even when people do get overheated others usually tell them to cool down. We all support Arsenal and we do so in myriad ways. I have no problem with accepting your views, whether they’re from the armchair or from row 4 at the Emirates, and you’re usually quite receptive to those you disagree with whilst arguing your point robustly.

    Now all we see is childish insults which does your good self a disservice.

  • sukebe

    Or maybe they need to do something with their life?

    I pity them,really do…

    May God give solice to their heart…

    Maybe somebody could record them and posting in on youtube?

    Oh btw, i saw this article at the telegraph, just want to know what you guys think:

  • sukebe

    I agree with rupert…

    Just let them talk.. Don’t talk back, even if they’re calling everything at you…

    It is your only self that allows you to be down, i believe that is the old saying…

    Even so, i am wondering, why wouldn’t matt send the ticket over?
    Is there some other plan?

    Just wondering…

  • Rupert Cook,

    First of all, you are not qualified to gauge my sensibility. You may fall for scams but I don’t. You have always been selective in your judgements here. Can you read my comments or are you only capable of reading Matt’s adolescent rants?

    Matt wanted me to travel down to the Emirates stadium to collect his ticket, after he would have also travelled down from his place to give it to me. I have seen the movie: ‘My Cousin Vinny’, so I know scams like this. I countered with an easier offer for him and a safer one for me: send it to Tony who would then notify me by email.

    Your boy suddenly chickened out!

    The fact that you would be supporting him in this respect makes me doubt your own integrity. Matt is a liar who tried to bluff his way through a debate. I called his bluff and he hasn’t talked about being a season ticket holder ever since.

    I am not ashamed of attacking anyone like a teenager although I’ll be embarrassed to be caught in a lie or to be found defending one.

    I notice that you play the fake only-adult-in-the-room/smartest-guy-in-the-room here very often but you are always only antagonistic towards those calling out the AAA. I am a proud AKB as I have nothing to be ashamed of. Own up to who you are.

  • sukebe,

    Matt has no ticket. He is a lying sack of shit. And Rupert is an AAA apologist.

  • bjtgooner

    Are Matt & rupert from the same nest?

  • sukebe


    Maybe, but please don’t lower yerself, as we already know they are shit…

    I mean, just look at that shit response to mickey? Real class wanting a positive to the club?

  • Stuart

    You forgot to mention if they could cure their case of ‘Genitalia Facia’

  • Dec

    Say like it is, as always Boo.
    AKBs the world over are right with you man.

  • Dec

    Kick off at Celtic park and not a sheep in sight!!!
    Baa baa .

  • Matt

    Man up Boo and come and get the ticket or stop bitching.Just think a chance to go to your first NLD. I would be proud to give my ticket to such a massive gooner as you and let you enjoy the day.Prove your point or accept your don’t believe me but can’t prove what you say.Pretty simple really.

  • Rupert Cook

    @Bootoome, sort it out among yourselves. You call someone a liar for no reason other than you think he is. AKB, AAA, it’s all a load of crap. I’ve got more interesting things to do like watch season 2 of The Wire.

    And it’s interesting that it’s usually so called AKB’s that resort to insults first and offer people out for fights. I’ve noticed it frequently.

  • Getting rid of the board and Wenger is more difficult that one can imagine. For a start that would require some sort of supporter movement, but the vast majority that go to the Emirates are there for a nice day out and/or are completely ignorant of the mess Wenger and Gazidis are making.

  • sukebe


    Really? Insults first? Offer fights? LOL

    So sorry, if you feel you are being insulted, so sorry if you cannot take the heat and taking it as “offer fights”

    Man up? Be a gentleman and declare, not a trickery like rat.

  • The font

    In support of the AAA may I suggest that due to there extreme unhappiness they should no longer go to the emirates until (1) wenger is sacked. (2). They have a change of heart and become AKB
    (3) they die of small knob syndrom (they could get there mum to take the urn) (4) we are so bad under wenger we go bankrupt and end up in the conference . Allowing people who are positive about the club to take there season ticket and turn the ems into something the magnificent Turkish fans achieved even when there team was 5-0 down you know who you are and you should be ashamed of yourselves

  • sukebe


    What is this “mess”? Please shine your light to the ignorant ones…

  • Sukebe

    I wouldn’t waste my substance on you.

  • Yassin

    Yeh yeh AKBs always start the insult first and they always want to fight. That is why maybe come to this blog, an anti-Wenger blog, and want to piss the anti-wengerians?

    Oh come on if logic of a matching cheating by the ref is not as important as splashing the cash, although FACTS do support that, 4 games to 1, how do you want them to understand the above logic?

  • bjtgooner

    @rupert (depressive AAA sewer rat)

    You should have learned by now that you have only been attacked after you first attacked the club/manager/team in some way. Rats are supposed to be quite intelligent for rodents, but I suppose there are exceptions.

    Just remember you have a long record of being very sarcastic about the club/manager/team & most of us will remember that, even if you suffer from selective amnesia.

  • sukebe


    Substance? LOL

  • Wenger is out of his depth domestically and in Europe. Any idiot could achieve (not that he’s achieved anything) what he has in Europe. Group stages are deliberately weighted so the best two beat the two shitty teams and go through, after that 90% of the time Arsenal get knocked out as soon as they play anyone half decent.

  • sukebe


    That is your “substance?”

    What is your fact on that?

    For me you just spitting blabbering rant…

    Cite on the word substance:

  • sukebe

    I rest my case, may you guys rest in peace…

  • sukebe

    You are brainwashed

  • sukebe


    Yeah, i hope it’s clean enough for the date i have later…

  • sukebe


    Oh, and thank you for your in depth substance, really helps to get my girl to laugh, appreciate it.

    @sukebe, yes, twice on this site there have been AKBS challenging other fans to fights. In my book once you challenge people to fights you’ve lost your argument.

    I don’t see the problem here. If Bootoome goes to meet Matt and gets a ticket he gets in free. If Matt doesn’t show then he gets to watch the game in a local full of Gooners and gets to prove Matt is a liar. Win win situation.

    You are not ready for the truth

  • AL

    I offered SA gooner a list of the AAA posters that frequent this blog(as well as le grove), and bob took me up on my offer to provide the list.

    Well, I don’t have the time but SA Gooner (& bob to a lesser extent), if you’re reading this & have the time, just go through the comments on these following threads;

    1. Were you in row 15 last night? Worry not! Your desperate negativity can be cured

    2. Sorry AAA, but we can say “Bring on the draw for the CL”

    3. Fenerbahçe at the Emirates: a unique Untold vision

    4. Fulham 1 – Arsenal 3: no midweek hangover

    You will notice that some names don’t even feature at all in the last two threads, which were basically about congratulating the team on two fine performances. However, the missing names appear so prominently in the first two threads that have little to do with how well the team played. You may repeat the process with previous threads, and you will see a pattern develop; certain names don’t appear at all on threads congratulating the team after a good result, but only appear when the results have not been good or if its about transfer talk, about spending some money or the lack of, or anything that may be deemed negative, etc. Its not rocket science to tell who these people are.

    What a laugh Tony!

    You might have hit the nail on the head when you mentioned resenting a father figure.

    I’m beginning to suspect some fans don’t like Wenger because he DOES know better than them. And repeatedly proves it.

    But such a point of view is pretty immature.

    You’ve got to be kidding!

    The journey from my town to the Emirates and back takes almost 6 hours and costs almost £35. Why would I spend that time and money to go watch the match in a local pub around the stadium? Are you really suggesting this?

    This is the problem that I mentioned earlier, your sympathy and allegiance is always to the AAA no matter how ridiculous their defence makes you look.

    Why can’t Matt send the ticket to Tony if he indeed has it? Why can’t you see him for the pathological liar that he is?

    From your comment, I think “win-win” must have a different meaning to you. Spending 6 hours of my time and £35 of my money on a wild goose chase when I can watch comfortably in my own home is not a win-win scenario for me.

    The logic of my suggestion is impeccable and it is for the safety of myself and convenience of Matt.

    Matt has has no ticket. He was bluffing and making shit up to make himself look important and to silence non-ST holders as second class fans whose opinions don’t count as much as his.

  • Wenger needs a Software update to fix his jumpers for goal posts style of football

    Are you this site’s admin?

  • Only 4 managers have more than a hundred games in this competition. Ferguson, Wenger, Ancelotti and Mourinho. Guess who never won the UCL trophy? Tip: 3 of these managers won the UCL twice.

  • Matt

    Pathological liar? Where is the proof for this? 6 hours to watch the team you claim to love? Now you see why my support is greater than yours. You sit on your sofa watching on tv and will do my type supporting.

  • bjtgooner

    AL @ 9.27pm

    I have noticed the same trend. It is quite noticeable the way some of them slime their way back, having been missing for a while when the team did well.

    But, UA seems to be coming under an ever greater weight of attack from these AAA creeps – some of whom now try to pretend to be concerned fans rather than out and out AAA types. Some of them must be close to a red card or a second yellow for persistent fouls – even though they try to rotate the fouling!

    The other point to watch is the way they try to move the topic under discussion, especially when an incisive debate is ongoing; to one which is innocuous or which suits their purpose.

  • Matt,

    Send the ticket to Tony or just shut up.


  • Matt

    Like I have to prove anything to you bellend.I know the truth and so do you big time gooner.

  • Matt wrote:

    “I will let you have my ticket for the Spurs match. I will meet you before the game take you to the Rocket for pre game drinks and you can have my ticket for free and see what a proper fan does on match day. What do you say?”

    That sounds very much like you were trying to impress me and other Untold readers; until I called your bluff.

    If you would travel all the way to the stadium to give me your ticket, why can’t you send it to Tony? This is cheaper for you and less stressful. Your refusal to do this confirms you as liar who is not a season ticket holder but only lying on the Internet to feel important. I know you are already regretting your boast from above as you never thought (because of your thickness) that I would not fall for your wild goose chase set up.

    Liar, liar, pants on fire.

    Matt, the pathological liar!

  • Blacksheep63

    GoonerDog, don’t worry I’m 5′ bugger all but was ‘cocky’ enough to say he was out of order as was the geezer in front of me (whose even shorter). At the game you support the team, or stay at home and grumble to yourself. Arsenal and indeed any club deserves real fans who applaud the effort that the guys on the pitch are putting in. We were winning FFS!

  • Blacksheep63

    Dialsquare, David Moyes has the third highest number of games in the PL but has never won it. United have made him their manager. Think about that for a few moments.

  • sukebe

    Calmdown please

    Why don’t you post photo of you holding the ticket here, then i think boo will gladly go to the ems.

    Like i said before, be a gentleman and declare.

    Hey, Mr.Tony,
    I have 1 question, is dialsquare one of the admin here?

    Who was it that said ,” Dogs are from Mars and cats are from Venus ?” . Oh , sorry that must have been me ! Just posting this here as it reminded me of the ongoing ‘difference ‘in opinions ! fROM –

    What Do Our Pets Really Think?

    We all know there are major differences between dogs and cats, but it was only after we found their secret diaries that we really understood how deep a difference it is…

    The Cat’s Diary

    Day 1073 of my captivity

    My captors continue to taunt by dangeling little objects in front of my face. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

    The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my capabilities. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a “good little hunter” I am. Bastards!

    Day 1074

    There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of “allergies.” I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.

    Day 1075

    Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs.

    I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released, and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded. The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cage so he is safe. For now…

    And never the twain shall meet ….

    Say what ? Does anybody here talk/ understand Blonde ?

    A bonde walked up to the information desk in her local hospital and said, “I, need, to see the upturn, please.”

    “I think, you mean the ‘intern,’ don’t you?” asked the nurse on duty.

    “Yes,” said the girl. “I want to have a contamination.”

    “Don’t you mean ‘examination,'” the nurse questioned her again.

    “Well I want to go to the ‘fraternity ward,’ anyway.”

    “I’m sure you mean the maternity ward.”

    To which the blonde replied “Upturn, intern, contamination, examination fraternity, maternity…. What’s the difference? All I know is I, haven’t demonstrated in two months, and I think I’m stagnant.”

    ( Oh dear , I think she’s about to have an AAAA !)

  • Arvind

    Ha Ha hilarious stuff Doctor. Thanks for taking the time off your busy schedule to come post on an Arsenal blog ; )

  • bjtgooner


    I really enjoy your sense of humour & particularly liked the story about the pets, but, do we know what an AAA sewer rat might think each day?

  • Col

    It is surely possible to be critical of Wenger without having to be characterised as an overwight knuckle-dragger. Arsenal says he will only buy players of sufficient quality. One has to assume that players he actually bids for, like Cabaye, are of sufficient quality, so something else is preventing them coming to Arsenal, whether Arsenal bid too low, refuse to pay the wages or whatever. The perspective of this site seems to be there is no problem. However, AW himself has admitted that the squad NEEDS strengthening, and so far hasn’t been (unlike Spurs’, say). I call that a problem. I am happy to be proved wrong, but there comes a point where ‘optimism’ morphs into ‘blind delusion’ – something the AKB might well be accused of if no-one comes in before the transfer window shuts.

    Thanks guys .Just came on as I seem to have connection problems at work .A virus ? Hope its not spreading .
    @ bjtgooner – Think you may like this tale of rats !

    I am reminded of a joke: What happens if a politician drowns in a river? That is pollution.
    What happens if all of them drown? That is solution!!!

    Exactly my sentiments which I posted last week ,August 19th
    1; –

    If I were to ponder upon it , my question would be ,” How many AAAs would take to pull the plug at the bottom of the lake ? Would they even try ?” Would they care ?

    I liked to think that they all died ( what’s that cheering ?), not trying ,but complaining and took in so much water (through their big mouths ) which saved the boy and thus made the world a better place ! Yah ! Get out the flags and buntings ,lads !
