Arsenal’s Greatest Midfielders Day 6

Continuing our Summer series of articles in search of Arsenal’s greatest ever team, this week we continue our quest for the greatest midfielders to include in our team.  Don’t forget to take the opportunity to choose your personal favourite midfielder by voting in the poll at the end of the week.

17. Robert Pires: 2000-2006.

Robert appeared in 284 matches over a 6 year period.

article-1287109-01C84CBA0000044D-155_468x286Born in Reims France, he is a graduate of the FC Metz youth academy, making his senior debut in 1993 against Lyon. During his six seasons there, he scored 43 goals in 162 matches, and won the Coupe de la Ligue, prompting a £5 million move to Olympique de Marseille in 1998, where he stayed for two year years.

Robert was signed by Arsenal for £6 million in 2000, after stiff competition from Real Madrid and Juventus. Initially his form was indifferent, and he was criticised for his comments that the English game was too physical. By 2001–02, he had fully got to grips with the English game and had one of his best seasons scoring many excellent goals. He led the Premier League assist charts and was voted both FWA Footballer of the Year and Arsenal’s player of the season, as Arsenal won the league title. This was despite not playing the last two months of the season after suffering a cruciate ligament injury in a FA Cup match against Newcastle United. This also ruled him out of playing in the 2002 World Cup with France.

After a lengthy layoff, he made his comeback in November 2002 and was voted Barclaycard Player of the Month for February 2003 and capping off his season by scoring the winning goal in the FA Cup Final against Southampton. He went on to be a crucial part of Arsenal’s quest for the Premier League title in the 2003–04 season, which they achieved, remaining unbeaten and becoming the first English top flight club to do so in 115 years. Robert along with his Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry was a key player in that season, scoring a combined 57 goals in all competitions. In the 2004–05 season, he finished third in the Premiership goal scorers table and also picked up a second FA Cup winners’ medal after Arsenal beat Manchester United on penalties. His final game for Arsenal was in the UEFA Champions league final against Barcelona, in which he was substituted after goalkeeper Jens Lehman received an early red card.

In May 2006, he agreed to join Spanish side Villarreal. He joined on a free transfer, bringing to an end his six-year career as an Arsenal player. In 2009, he faced Arsenal in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League, Villarreal were defeated 4–1 on aggregate, but Robert received a warm return from the Arsenal supporters, who sang his name throughout both legs. He was told in May 2010 that his contract would not be extended and he would have to look for a new club during the summer.

He won 79 caps for his country and scored 14 goals. He won the Golden Ball (for most outstanding football) and Golden Shoe (for most goals scored) awards at the 2001 Confederations Cup in Korea/Japan.

18. Freddie Ljungberg: 1998-2007. 

Freddie appeared in 328 matches over a 9 year period.

ljungberg_display_imageHe was born in Vittsjö, Sweden. Between when he was 5–14 years old, Freddie was coached by Olle Eriksson. He credits Eriksson for having a profound effect on his career as well as Brazilian football player, Sócrates. Also in his youth, he enjoyed playing ice hockey and developed a talent for handball; but decided to concentrate his attentions on football. Freddie also did well in academic subjects as well as sports and at 18 he decided to attend university, but struggled to balance the hectic academic timetable with the physically demanding commitments of football. Eventually, he quit university to concentrate on his football career.

He made his senior debut for Halmstad in October 1994 in the Allsvenskan against AIK. In 1995, he played 31 games in which he scored his first goal as a professional player. that same year Halmstad won the Swedish Cup. During his time with Halmstad, he made 139 appearances and scored 16 goals and he also won both the Swedish Cup and League title with the club. After two years with Halmstad, his star was on the rise with interest from Barcelona, Chelsea, Aston Villa, Parma and Arsenal.

Freddie was signed by Arsenal in 1998 for £3 million, Arsenal scouts watched him for over a year and Arsenal’s manager, Arsène Wenger, took the unusual step of authorising the signing after watching him play for Sweden in their victory against England on television, without seeing him play live. Freddie scored on his debut on 20 September after coming on as a substitute against Manchester United. He endeared himself to Arsenal supporters by having a bright red stripe in his hair. (A popular chant spawned from this to the tune of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons: “We love you Freddie, because you’ve got red hair, we love you Freddie because you’re everywhere, we love you Freddie, you’re Arsenal through and through” Later when he shaved his head this was updated to “We love you Freddie, because you’ve got no hair”).

Freddie became the first player to score a goal at an FA Cup final outside England, when Arsenal lost against Liverpool in 2001 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. A year later, against Chelsea, he became the first player to score in consecutive FA Cup Finals. He also scored a penalty in the shootout in Arsenal’s 2005 FA Cup Final victory over Manchester United. In 2008, he placed 11th in Arsenal.com’s Gunners’ Greatest 50 Players.

After nine years at Arsenal, Freddie joined West Ham United on a four-year contract, later agreeing to terminate his contract only one year into the four-year deal.

On 28 October 2008, MLS team, Seattle Sounders officially announced they had signed Freddie as their Designated Player for the 2009 season. The terms of his contract saw Ljungberg earn $10 million over two seasons with the Sounders. Much like the contract of David Beckham and as is the norm for professional sports stars in the US, Freddie’s contract allowed him to retain all of his private endorsement money.  In July 2009, Freddie was selected for starting MLS’ All-Stars; selection for the All-Star team is based upon votes from players, coaches, general managers, members of the media and an online fan voting system. Ljungberg received the most votes among fans, a testament to his popularity in the MLS. He was also appointed captain of the 2009 MLS All-Star Team in their game versus Everton.

He was traded to Major League Soccer club Chicago Fire on 30 July 2010, after 15 league appearances, Freddie announced that he would be leaving Chicago at the end of the 2010 MLS season.

He has represented his country at Euro 2000, the 2002 World Cup, Euro 2004, the 2006 World Cup and Euro 2008, and in total he has represented Sweden on 75 occasions.

On 24 August 2012, Ljungberg announced his retirement from football.

19. Gilberto Silva: 2002-2008.

Gilberto appeared in 244 games over a 6 year period.

Manchester+United+v+Arsenal+Premier+League+5LK__Q7P34HlBorn in Lagao da Prata, Brazil, he was raised in a poor family and as a child he balanced playing football with various labour jobs. He began his football career in 1997 with América Mineiro, where good form earned him a move to Atlético Mineiro in 2000. He became a star player for Atlético, playing for three years in the Brazilian Campeonato Brasileiro Série A. He came to particular prominence when he helped the Brazilian national team win the 2002 FIFA World Cup, playing in all seven of Brazil’s matches.

Arsenal signed Gilberto in August 2002 for a fee of £4.5 million. Upon signing Gilberto, Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger said, “What I like was the fact that he kept things simple. He can play all across the midfield but the holding role just in front of the defence is what he does best”. After two substitute appearances, he finally broke into the starting eleven on 27 August. He set a new record for the fastest goal scored in the UEFA Champions League, scoring after 20.07 seconds against PSV on 25 September 2002.

Even though he suffered a lapse in form towards the end of the season, he won an FA Cup winner’s medal, playing in the final at the Millennium Stadium as Arsenal beat Southampton 1–0.

The next season he was an important member of the squad that won Premier League title whilst going the entire season unbeaten. He played in 32 of Arsenal’s 38 unbeaten games during the season. In October 2005, Gilberto made his first appearance for Arsenal as captain, against Sparta Prague. Although Gilberto had a period of bad form during the winter months of the season, his form returned and on 17 May 2006 he played for Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League Final against FC Barcelona, which Arsenal lost 2–1. On 19 August 2006 he scored Arsenal’s first competitive goal at the newly built Emirates Stadium and was made vice-captain of Arsenal in 2006.

Gilberto was called “the invisible wall” his play often went unnoticed as he positioned himself between the two centre backs and the rest of midfield, breaking up opposition attacks before they could gather momentum. He played this role as part of the defensive unit for both club and country.  Both Arsenal and Brazil are both attack minded teams, and he created cover for attacking wing-backs and other midfielders who had a poor record of dropping back to help the defence.

According to ProZone (a data analysis system used by football managers) figures cited by The Sunday Times in January 2007, Gilberto was one of the few midfielders in England to attain “the elite Champions League level” of performance.

He made his international debut against Chile on 7 October, coming on as a substitute. On 7 November, in total he played in 93 games for Brazil.

20. Cesc Fabregas: 2003-2011.

Cesc appeared in 303 matches over an 8 year period.

Cesc was born in Arenys de Mar, Barcelona, he had supported FC Barcelona since childhood and went to his first match when he was nine months old with his grandfather. He began his club football career with CE Mataró, before being signed for Barcelona’s La Masia youth academy aged 10 in 1997. His initial training was as a defensive midfielder playing alongside notable names such as Gerard Piqué and Lionel Messi. He was a prolific scorer, sometimes scoring more than 30 goals in a season for the club’s youth teams.

Cesc+Fabregas+Arsenal+v+Barcelona+UEFA+Champions+ogSuLT1RuEKlSensing that he would have limited opportunities at Barcelona, he joined Arsenal in their Academy, when he was just 16 years old, signing on 11 September 2003. He made his debut for Arsenal not long after, on 23 October 2003, in a League Cup tie at home to Rotherham United. In doing so he became Arsenal’s youngest ever first team player, aged 16 years and 177 days. He then became the youngest goal scorer in Arsenal’s history in a later round of the League Cup, scoring in a 5–1 victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers. He signed his first professional contract with Arsenal in September 2004. He concluded that first season by gaining his first honours with Arsenal when he was in the starting eleven that defeated Manchester United on penalties in the 2005 FA Cup Final.

After the departure of Patrick Vieira, to Juventus, Cesc was given the number 4 shirt and featured regularly in the Arsenal central midfield alongside Gilberto Silva. He made 49 appearances in all competitions during the 2005–06 season.  He also played in the Champions League Final against his former club Barcelona, Arsenal were defeated 2–1. His increased exposure drew transfer speculation during the summer; Real Madrid expressed a desire to sign him despite his long-term contract with Arsenal.  On 24 November 2008, he was named as the Arsenal club captain. However he was ruled out for four months after sustaining a knee injury against Liverpool.

In August 2011, he signed for Barcelona, ending one of the most protracted transfer sagas in recent times. Statistics show that in the 5 years prior to his departure from Arsenal he created 466 goal-scoring chances, made 75 assists and scored 30 goals.

His international national career began when he represented the Under-17 side at the 2003 FIFA U-17 World Championship in Finland. As a result of his club performances, he was called up to the senior squad in 2006. He has played in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro 2008, 2010 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2012, helping Spain to become eventual winners in the three most recent tournaments.

    Right Gn5
    Now you’re taking the p*ss!
    How can we choose between this week’s lot?
    Impossible!
    Let’s have a squad of 55!
    :)

  2. RockyLives says:

    Wow.
    First time I’ve ever been first.

  3. RockyLives says:

    And second.
    And third.

  4. Norfolk Gooner says:

    Don’t rub it in Rocky, Big Al gets a bit touchy about being beaten. :-)

  5. Big Raddy says:

    Oh No. Now it’s getting difficult.

    If it is heart, then Bobby. Head…. Cesc. But the other two also sit firmly in the pantheon of most loved players.

    FL. Who can forget going to Cardiff and seeing thousands of red coloured heads and the awesomely loud singing of “we love you Freddie” ?

    GS. Just a quality player whose impact wasn’t noticed until it was missing. Yet to be replaced.

  6. evonne says:

    cannot chose, all drop dead gorgeous

  7. GunnerN5 says:

    Good morning everyone.

    Even after researching and then writing these profiles I simply have no idea which 3 midfielders I will vote for – it really is mission impossible.

    Each of this weeks 10 players has earned the right to be considered as one of our greatest ever midfielders, however with such high quality to choose from the end result will see 3 incredible players voted into our midfield.

    The next two weeks will be just as difficult and will leave us all thinking – if only they still played for us………………..?

  8. evonne says:

    GN5 – as much as I love those guys, I am relieved they are no longer playing for us. We would be the oldest team in history and almost as old as Glastonbury stars

  9. Big Raddy says:

    evonne. Those stars proved that you can make wonderful music with an old instrument. ;-)

  10. GunnerN5 says:

    Raddy,

    I’m surprised that he was a fruit?

  11. RockyLives says:

    Gn5
    It’s just that he’s bitter :)

  12. GunnerN5 says:

    Rocky,

    That’s another twist to the story.

  13. GunnerN5 says:

    Raddy,

    I heard that the best percussion at Glastonbury, was the sound of the Stones Bones rattling…………….

  14. sai says:

    Good day everyone. Finally, it has come down to the times from when I’ve started watching Football. It was a dream team really. Those one-two combos between Pires and Henry were perhaps the ingredients that created a lifetime Gooner from a land that seldom appreciates good Football (There are more supporters for Chavs than any other team here in India).

  15. LB says:

    Wow, what a group of great players, sigh, happy days.

  16. GunnerN5 says:

    When I think about it – they all look like skeletons don’t they?

    So much saggy skin hanging off of their old bones

  17. GunnerN5 says:

    Sai,

    Keep waving the Arsenal flag, my friend, you made the right choice when you chose the Gunners.

    There are many great players and years to look back on and even more to come in the future.

  18. arsenal says:

    Robert Pires is my best

  19. neamman says:

    what a great group of midfielders we have had recently

  20. Big Raddy says:

    There are some Arsenal websites that are really hopeless. You know the ones – those that put out continual sensationalist headlines in order to accrue hits.

    But I forget that they run their sites for money whereas AA is run for the love of Arsenal,

  21. GunnerN5 says:

    Ah Ha! – Red Top Blogs!

    Raddy, that is exactly why I don’t ever bother going to those sites – come and read me headlines and no meaningful content, just unsubstantiated made up rumours.

    It’s also goes for the paper red tops – draw in the readers with seemingly factual headlines that rarely, if ever, turn out to be correct.

    Why football smart readers repeat their trash is beyond my comprehension.

    The only factual Arsenal headlines appear on Arsenal.com – until that occurs it’s all made up nonsense.

  22. GunnerN5 says:

    Ouch, pictures of Chamucky at Arsenal pre-season training.

    I’m not sure but if it is him but looks as though Diaby is also training.

  23. GunnerN5 says:

    I wanted to say it looks like Diaby is also training – but I’m unsure,

  24. evonne says:

    have we got rid off the smell?

  25. evonne says:

    Lisicki had a boob job done to make her look a little bit like a woman

  26. GunnerN5 says:

    Evonne,

    Lisicki looks rattled.

  27. evonne says:

    good!! I don’t like her. Come on Agnieszka!!!

  28. Gooner In Exile says:

    It’s a shame that Gilberto won’t make the greatest team. I really liked his approach to the game and he is the complete definition of an unsung hero.

    I seemto remember that it took 2/3 years to pick up a yellow card in the PL, proving not all DMs need to be kick everything types!

  29. Gooner In Exile says:

    GN5 I still hold the BBC highly but the website is a bit trashy for no real reason when it comes to football.

    And I have a gripe with Arsenal.com being their media watch section. Which regurgitates the BS from the red tops.

  30. evonne says:

    GiE – my first grandchild’s photo will not be published here with your George’s :(

  31. GunnerN5 says:

    GIE,

    I agree a step into the abyss by Arsenal.com, but I choose to ignore that section.

  32. GunnerN5 says:

    GIE,

    I was a real fan of Gilberto but I think you are right he will not make the “A” but hopefully the “B” squad or as a minimum the top 50 – but I have my doubts about him making any.

  33. evonne says:

    let’s see if my new gravatar works …

  34. evonne says:

    it does!! it’s the Arsenal pug chilling out

  35. GunnerN5 says:

    Are you watching Evonne, Radwanska 6-5 up with Lisicki serving.

  36. evonne says:

    GN5 – I am indeed, fantastic game, don’t you think?

    It’s like watching it together :) shall we have some wine?

  37. GunnerN5 says:

    6-6 – 15-30

    Looking Dodgy.

  38. GunnerN5 says:

    great comeback 40-40

    and a very fortunate net cord

  39. GunnerN5 says:

    Great challenge wins the game.

  40. GunnerN5 says:

    That’s how technology improves the game.

    When will the fuddy daddy’s running football wake up to the fact that the officials need help?

  41. evonne – there is no doubt in my mind that when that grandchild is born there will be a photo on here …….. pfth who cares what they say ;)

  42. evonne says:

    peaches :) really???? I’ve been told in no uncertain terms not to inflict my madness on Tilly

  43. GunnerN5 says:

    ojej !

  44. Big Raddy says:

    Bum. I was hoping the blonde with the “boob job” would win.The other one has bionic legs which must be cheating.

  45. evonne says:

    ojej?? that’s polish :)

    Raddy with your old instrument :) the one with boob job won – she looks like a bloke on steroids. Agnieszka is lovely

  46. Tilly is a Gooner ………….. it has a nice ring to it :)

  47. I thought Lisicki was lovely and very humble ……….

  48. Gooner In Exile says:

    Tilly? Or Matilda? Evonne first pressie has to be a pink Arsenal Babygro :)

    And then they have to let you take the pic…the sign her up for JG while you’re at it :)

  49. Gooner In Exile says:

    So Moyes has appointed Giggs and Neville as coaches….bit of a surprise.

  50. Big Raddy says:

    & put her/his name down for a season ticket.

  51. evonne says:

    GiE – Tilly = Matilda the Gooner, oh yes!!!

    I would love to buy the whole pink wardrobe with little cannons on them, but have to careful – parents are very sensible in this respect :)

    I can just imagine myself with Tilly and her other grandma going to the Ems….ooooohhh

  52. Big Raddy says:

    why are we choosing 3 MF’s?

    Are the team lining up as 4-3-3 or the classic 4-2-4?

    If we are to include some of the old fellows we need to play a traditional old fashioned game – so I demand we have just two MF’s and a proper inside forward (Alex James)

  53. Gooner In Exile says:

    Raddy, I think we are only choosing 3 because we can only vote for 3, the squad will be (I believe) 4-4-2, anyway that’s all GN5s decisions to make

  54. I’ve got a complaint .
    No overmars or petie shameless
    Sheep hagger ™

  55. Gooner In Exile says:

    Just looked at pre season training pics, they must be on a diet over summer…I know it’s only four/five weeks off in reality but you’d at least expect a bit of wobble :)

    Do you think players get special dispensation from schools…not like there is much time for a family holiday in normal holiday times given they are only off for June.

    And whoever said Arsenal players don’t see weights?

  56. chas says:

    Wow, what a selection, GN5.

    Bobby……..
    What a goal

  57. chas says:

    Freddie….

  58. chas says:

    Gilberto………

  59. The incredible sulk aka mr Anelka is off to west brom, it’s a wonder why mr Wenger did try and sign him
    Sheep

  60. I may support band aid next year

  61. chas says:

    Fab4……..

  62. evonne says:

    talking sweet nothings and watching soft porn from Chas, and missed the news – Miyachi is going to Feyenoord

  63. dandan says:

    Evening AAers thought you might like to share my 70th birthday cake its as delicious as it looks

  64. Gooner In Exile says:

    On loan Evonne?

    Happy 70th DD. what’s a man of you calibre doing on Facebook!? :)

  65. Many happy returns dandan, sadly the cake doesn’t seem to want to appear but I’m sure it was delicious.

    I think we need a post for tomorrow and Sunday if anyone has an idea to write up. Thanks

  66. mickydidit89 says:

    GP GN5 TYVM

    Morning Chas,

    Oh God, the post request :-(
    Given that within two minutes of it going up, we’ll be talking transfers, Wimbledon, sex and rock ‘n roll I do wonder.

    I’m mean as Raddy rightly pointed out, it’s not like the site needs hits or even new voters. If either rock up, great, but….

    If anyone’s got an idea I’ll pen a paragraph or two, and I’ll have a think, but I’m in the “if you ain’t got anything worth saying camp…” :-(

  67. mickydidit89 says:

    Evonne

    What’s with Poles and Tennis, because it has nothing to do with their diet (I saw your tripe soup comment the other day) :-(

    Fancy an upset today in one or other semi what with the giants turning up.

  68. mickydidit89 says:

    Happy Birthday yesterday Dandan

  69. Big Raddy says:

    Morning All,

    Peaches use my TA one in the locker room.

    DanDan. Hope you had a” fab” day.

    Micky. Get writing – we need some posts as back up

  70. Shard says:

    Hello folks.

    How are things at AA? I’ve missed a few votes haven’t I?

    Happy Birthday Dandan. 70 is the new 40. Or so it would seem with you :)

    Micky,
    I had an idea for a post yesterday. A few lines on who should be Arsenal captain next season? Candidates to include Vermaelen, Arteta, Sagna, BFG, Wilshere…
    Also, there might be a post (perhaps in spam) already on arsenalnuts that I sent in before leaving for the UK.

    It’s good to be back.

  71. mickydidit89 says:

    Daddy,

    No-one to talk to, so I’ve begun :-(

  72. mickydidit89 says:

    Blimey Shard,

    Arsenal Captain eh? Very sensible idea and not at all the type of thing I have started :-)

    Could include a Poll. We all know how much we like a Poll :-)

  73. Big Raddy says:

    Didit. Nothing wrong with playing solo if there is no alternative.

    Shard. Nice to see you. Hope all is well and you enjoyed your England trip.

  74. Big Raddy says:

    Off out…. working :-(

  75. Shard says:

    BR,
    Thank you. Yes, it was a nice trip even though I didn’t end up doing as much as I’d thought. Went to Cambridge and Bath, and went on some nice walks in and around London. Didn’t meet any AAers though, so that was a lowlight :( Just missed you by a day I believe. Anyway. There’s always next time.

    Micky,
    Yaayyy to a poll.

  76. Red Arse says:

    Hands up, all those who think Micky is a Poll?

    Vote Tricky Micky!!!! :D

  77. evonne says:

    GiE – yeah, another loan

    BTW – what happened to Park too Young? He didn’t exist, did he?

    Micky – you are wrong about the food. Poles would go to great lengths to get a bowl of tripe or jellied pig trotters! If they had to win Wimbledon to secure such feast, they would win :)

  78. evonne says:

    Bendtner’s excessive wage demands might jeopardise his move to Frankfurt. Shame his skills don’t match his arrogance, bless him :)

  79. mickydidit89 says:

    Post sent, but a Shard Captain Poll is a great idea.

    Poll Friday has an excellent ring to it.

  80. mickydidit89 says:

    Evonne,

    Watched your compatriot yesterday. Great match, although grass really does favour the big server, and Doris Becker certainly had that :-)

    Mind you, your 6′ 7″ Pole is going to give Murray a big test today if he serves well.

  81. Gooner In Exile says:

    News from my brother who assures me Higuain was seen boarding a plane yesterday and that the destination was London, also Cesc wasn’t in Barca team pictures?

    I haven’t seen the pictures of Paulinho at Spuds but he reckons he didnt look the happiest player in the world at the unveiling.

    I should add my brother has just got this news scouting the net he is no way in the know.

    He made me laugh yesterday though, I mentioned Torres, and he said “why we’ve got Giroud” that’s a damning indictment of the £50m Spaniard :)

  82. evonne says:

    Do you want the Scotsman (with his biggest fan one SAF in tow) to win, or the Giant Pole? no brainer for me :)
    Yes, it was a great match, shame Agnieszka didn’t win, but Doris was too much for the tiny Polka

  83. evonne says:

    £50m for Torres?? Tell me it’s a typo

    I wouldn’t get too excited about Higuain flying to London; there are 8 football clubs in the area :)

  84. mickydidit89 says:

    Murray any day. Always liked him.

    GiE,
    I still believe Ollie will be much better in his second season. Give me two players, and they’d be a left wing and a dm. Then striker.

  85. Red Arse says:

    Hi GIE, :-)

    Those ‘London’ rumours were discounted by Spanish pundits, as it was Higgy arriving back at Madrid.

    Photo printed back to front? :-)

  86. Gooner In Exile says:

    Rumours that Coq is on his way…..some mass squad slimming going on if its true, we’ve had a lot of youngsters released plus Arshavin, Bendtner move stalling but he will end up somewhere, Mannone gone, plus surely we will lose Cham this summer.

    Also reading that Chavs are selling Ba….how crazy is that? Unsettle player, invoke a release cause and have player for 6 months. I’d be a very pissed off Newcastle fan if there is truth in this.

  87. Morning all

    Thanks Micky for the post and when I checked in arsenalnuts there were in fact a couple of others too :oops:

    Posts in the cupboard, how lucky am I and aren’t we going to sign Higuain today ;)

  88. evonne says:

    GiE – Chavs have done it to so many players already – Duff and SWP, that spring to mind

  89. I was going to same the same thing evonne, the chavs really are just spoilt rich kids, they grab someone so that no-one else can have them and then dump them …….. ruining a career along the way.

  90. evonne – do you realise how old we’ll be before we can take this grandchild to football …….. even you’ll have a bus pass ;)

    Peaches!!! that’s a terrible thought! We are young, trendy, cool grannies and Tilly will rejuvenate us further :)

    I hate Chavs much more than I hate Spurs; they are a toxic, poisonous mob. I am surprised that any player would want to join them, surely there is money to be earned elsewhere

  92. …………New Post …………………
