    Köln lost 0:1 at home?

    This Europa league lark might just be a blessing in disguise you know.

    Even so, I do hope it’s only for a year.

    Daily Mail is showing a wonderful picture of Mertesacker celebrating on the back of Holding!

    Of course, having presented some good in their article, they have to bash Arsenal.

    Have not see a minute of the game yet , nor the highlights , but what the hell-
    WOO HOO , HOO ! Well done the younglings .
    Up the Gunners !
    In other news , Carlo Ancelotti , is now free to join a new club . Or take a long break , till a suitable job opens up , probably in the EPL !

    The BBC report that the ‘useless Giroud” – (useless according to those who know better than Arsene) scored his goals in one game fewer than the wonder striker who hoofed it into manure land betraying the club to which Giroud is loyal to. Congratulations Giroud not only on your hundred but for proving all the doubters wrong.

    I hope that Giroud and Theo go past the betrayer in the next season or why not this season…. 😉

    Another step taken, well done lads.

    Let’s nurture young Reiss Nelson physicaly and mentally so that he is willing and prepared to become an Arsenal legend. (He reminds me of a Bergkamp type of player).

    This will have to be done very well to stop him(with the obvious talent he has) from being enticed and co-erced by others waving the bank notes and playing time at him.

    For me, he should be replacing Theo Walcott right now(I know, i KNOW) or at least being made aware that this will be his spot.

    I really fear losing him because of Arsenal’s(read Owner’s) position/policy in football atm.

    You’re at it again Tony, downing
    BT Sport and forgetting the old, the infirm and those who live in distant lands….who rely on ANY broadcaster for live coverage of their heroes.
    Many of us do not even need the mute button, so the commentary invariably passes us by.
    Remember us. We are not blessed with powerful motors, life in Northants and a season ticket at the Ems. OR the joy of journeying to and from home games, especially, by the sound of it, this coming Christmas Eve.
    Remember us. 😉

    I do sincerely hope that OG , keeps on scoring for the Arsenal and become our all time top scorer . And I like to think that he will remain loyal to the club and AW , unlike the previous two top ‘all time ‘ scorers.

    He’d probably not get a statue for his efforts , but then again some who were accorded one , have shown their true mean streak.

    If someone could photo shop it , I would love to have the 3 statues all together for a festival / Christmas greeting card. I think it would be so poetic to have Bergkamp kicking Adams in the cheat with Henry kissing Adam’s butt. Or you could have Henry switch places to the front .I don’t really care !

    But I would think it would be most sacrilegious to have Bergkamp kicking Adams from the back , deserved or otherwise. It would be unlike GOD !

    Could we start a collection or a petition ?
    Would you contribute ?

    Well said Nicky, completely agree.
    Tony, I really must pull you up on the Hartson criticism. Whilst John’s efforts were not top quality I cannot fathom how you construed his comments to be critical of Arsenal. The first half especially I thought his mainly positive comments to be a very pleasant change from the normal negative crap we have inflicted on us.
    I think you have such a bee in your bonnet regarding BT’s coverage and are therefore guilty of being blinded to any good content when it does, like last night, occur.
    You are determined to only see bad in BT.

    With my rural chromecasted bt, the only thing clear to me was the white spot in the pee soup, and John Hartsons manful efforts to stay positive ,and on track. The boys didn’t help his confidence in his own words , when every time he started waxing about how controlled we looked…. we suddenly didn’t, at all. Sounded fun.
    How many of you covered your eyes when Jack went chasing that last lost ball btw?? Thought he should have been removed , to save him from himself. Gets tired , loses precise touch, and a yard … boom.

    Walcott in his post-match last night just had to shoehorn a reference to himself into congratulating The OG. Yes Theo, you did also reach 100 goals for Arsenal on the 20th February of this year, but you managed it in your 13th season whilst Olivier is only in his 6th. I sincerely believe that if Giroud was to stay as long as Walcott has he’d have a real chance of breaking into the top five all time Arsenal scorers, even having a crack at Judas Wright and knocking him down a peg (required).

  14. Jammy J

    Don’t want to focus on a negative after a great win, but Walcott really needs to be less greedy/selfish. There’s so many occasions (not just in this match) where he chooses to go for the glory himself with a very difficult shot, rather than making a far easier pass that’ll often lead to a 1v1 situation. As long as he is comfortable being a squad player, because at this stage, I don’t think he is ever going to be a first-team regular. Certainly handy to have for games like this, though.

    Ancelotti goes under the radar but in truth, he has been one of the biggest cheque-book managers around. Maybe he hasn’t spend as much money as Pep and Mourinho have but his list of clubs include:

    -Parma (in the days when they were literally milking money from their owner Calisto Tanzi before that cow was slaughtered, to put it that way; didn’t win the league with them),

    -Juventus (we all know how they spent their money; failed to win anything, lost two title dog-fights to both Roman clubs, failed to recognize Henry’s potential – which is actually something we can all thank him; lost CL semifinals to Man United after having winning positions in both legs),

    -Milan (Berlusconi was one of the biggest sugar-daddies in the history of football; Ancelotti won one league title and two CL trophies with a Dream Team; Arsene reached CL Final with Eboue-Toure-Senderos-Flamini, Ancelotti had to do it with Cafu-Nesta-Stam-Maldini),

    -Chelsea (Abramovich; he actually played excellent football with them which was no surprise given that he had a head-start to all his rivals and City were just warming up),

    -PSG (he arrived with the Qatari money or a few months later, got Ibrahimović and Thiago Silva from his ex-club after losing his umpteenth title dogfight to Giroud’s Montpellier and “surprisingly” won the league when there was virtually no title challengers),

    -Real Madrid (we all know about Real; won CL thanks to that Ramos’ last-minute equalizer, lost two title dog-fights to both Atletico and Barcelona),

    -Bayern (he dismantled Pep’s technically perfect team to install his Italian football, won Bundesliga because Bundestag would have made the whole season void if it had happened otherwise and got sacked after falling out with half of the first team).

    He is a nice chap, apparently, but I don’t see him as a good successor to Arsene one day.
