Riddle me this


Dear reader arsenalism is away for August but back in time for the second home game. So while I am in media lock down mode I wonder what will happen during August?

Will Arsenal have some fit central defenders?
Will Wenger regret letting Sol go?
Will there be a choice of two clowns between the sticks?
Will the season start without any injuries?
Will Diaby and Denilson do any thing to justify being at the Club? Or in fact just do anything?
Will a gallant Blackpool be summarily dismissed by a cricket score?
Will Arshavin be arsed?
Will the new Rhubarb and Custard kit take off?
Will Sp*rs make it to the promised land of the ECL?
Will Wenger aquire someone weve actually heard of?
Will the new stands being renamed make a difference?
Will Barcelona have shut up by then?
Will Ramsey make a full recovery?
Will another player be on the recieving end of a Taylor/Shawcross assualt?
Will we see 4-4-2 again?
Will the quality of the refreshments improve?
Will Ashley Cole do a Cantona, and attack a fan, due to being abused in the opening two games?

But most of all will we have gotten rid of The Wonder of bleedin' You?

TH14 in NY

"I've seen most things in this league for the last twenty five years, I haven't seen anything like him. I said he was special at the beginning of the game; hes more than that"-Andy Gray 16/04/04


TH 14 Compilation HD*play some other music over the top
Like most relationships there are ups and downs. Thierry Henry's time at Arsenal was sensational. He was quite simply phenomenal for Arsenal for the majority of his time at the club. In a great team with great players he was something special. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and when looking back on Thierry's time at AFC it is remarkable how good he was (as the HD clips above show)

Winner of World Cup, European Championship, Premier League, FA Cup, LaLiga & Champions League to his credit he has now gone to the big apple.Some say a move motivated by dollars. So what? he's done the lot so I say good luck to him. Once seen never forgotten a true Arsenal Legend!

KIT PARADE 2010-2011

New Season New Kits, and there 'aint half some stinkers this time round!
Particular attention should be paid to MUFC home shirt which looks like the sort of copy of a Man Utd Shirt you might get in the Philippines.
The Everton Salmon/pink effort; always going to resemble a wash day when mum put a pair of red socks in with the whites.
Birmingham City, a rugby shirt in all but name.
Liverpool's shirt look just...well, wrong. 
Chelsea have flung in a bit of red for some reason (Russia maybe)
Newcastle away is notable for being modelled by Puyol's kid brother and Spurs, well what can you say. How to mess up a classic white shirt.

Expert hypocrisy

So De-Jong is a thug and the Netherlands play ugly. Spain are wonderful and their dives and waving imaginary cards is ok?

Funny that, I thought ‘getting stuck in’ and ‘they don’t like it up ‘em was acceptable!

SPOT THE DIFFERENCE

I also assumed that these foreign divers and cheats were ruining the Premiership.


TWO MATCH BAN OR YELLOW CARD?

Hansen's analysis of the World Cup was a typical example of so called experts and their double standards.The wider audience that watches World Cup football, clearly need to be impressed by a pure approach to the beautiful game, whereas the not so smart demographic will listen to defense of clogging and criticism of Johny Foreigner.

Most pundits are like the Indecisive Dave, played by Paul Whitehouse, in The Fast Show who keeps changing his mind with the popular consensus.

When MOTD returns with domestic football it will be back to the same old pigswill from Hansen and company.

Sour grapes in the UK


The Netherlands meet Spain in the FIFA World Cup and I hear talk of this being the worst World cup ever. Quantify worst I say. Is it the Jabulani or the Vuvuzela that has made it the worst? The failure of over egged big time marquee players failing to light up the tournament? Is it the lack of goals? Could it be the lack of ‘passion’; that phrase that seems to have become a by word in the UK? It couldn’t be due to the petulance shown by Rooney and Ronaldo to the watching millions? Could it possibly be that Premiership players, by and large, have failed miserably to live up to the hype of the self named ‘best league in the world’? A league where survival at all costs, the long ball, getting stuck in, the launched throw- in and rampant egotism is king?


To label this tournament as the worst is to overlook and belittle the achievements of the stadia that were erected on time, the organisational excellence of the competition, the successful planning and delivery of the first World Cup to be held in Africa.

It was a bad idea, it wouldn’t be safe, it wouldn’t be organised it would be a disaster. It was a disaster; For the England team. Of course it would be overly cynical to accuse xenophobia and a distorted view of the so called third world when raising the UKs smug and contemptuous condemnations of Africa’s World Cup. It’s easier to call it sour grapes but it’s something much more bitter.

FIFA FO FUM

So according the the UK media...
A South American team were going to win the world cup-Its an all Europe Final!
It was all going to be about individuals not teams - Kaka, Messi, Ronaldo, Drogba, Rooney et al failed to live up to star billing and the last four sides were TEAMS! (hardly surprising had they cared to look at the Champions League final)
South Africa couldn't organise a successful tournament-They can and they have!
Given that England had no Arsenal players this tournament would be unkind to us-An Arsenal Player will hold the World Cup on Sunday!
Bloody media eh?
