My big bruvver…

I’m going to have a rant about my big bruvver. He’s 10 years older and we are like chalk and cheese when it comes to the Arsenal. He’s the pessimist and I’m generally the optimist. We keep in ย touch by phone, me in the warm sunshine of Provence, him in the damp and wet of Bedfordshire. He normally phones me to have a moan after a bad performance, using me as a telephonic punch-bag. I normally phone him after a good game, to try and get him to admit that he is wrong to be so negative.

Big bruvver isn’t a blogger, he uses me to vent his disappointment in Wenger and the boys. I sit at the end of the telephone, listening and doing the “ah yes buts,” and the “hold on a minutes”, trying to get a word in edgeways to balance the conversation. He recently admitted to me that he needs an outlet for his frustrations at the moment and I am it. So I suggested he search ‘Arsenal Blogs’ on the internet and he would have no end of supporters agreeing with him.

Not sure if he has done that because as usual, two minutes after the games against Anderlecht and Swansea, my phone rang……… I didn’t have to pick up to know who it was, so I didn’t answer. I just couldn’t face the negative diatribe that was going to hit me from 1000 kilometers away in a damp, cloudy and grim Bedfordshire. I’m going to wait to phone him after our next win so that I can put some positive vibes his way.

It makes me wonder if anyone else has the same experience in their own family. The moaning relative and the more positive opposite? I suppose Transplant and the Cockie man are the friendship equivalent.

Well that’s my rant about my big bruvver…. I look forward to our next telephone conversation after we thrash Man Utd next week.

  1. Thanks Peaches ๐Ÿ™‚

    And can I just confirm that Peaches mum doesn’t want any more pornography on todays comments. Mickydidit is the new smut-meister, I don’t want to be tarnished with the same brush ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. mickydidit89 says:

    Just back for a quick shower and a bite.

    How nice to read a clean and pleasant post. Cheers NB.

    Although it was my Old Man who first took me to Highbury, he was never a fanatic, and none of my siblings can stand football at all. Here’s a taster of my elder bro’s dedication to sport. We shared a flat briefly, and one sunday evening sat in front of the tv watching the epic Dennis Taylor v Steve Davis snooker final. Think after bloody hours it was 17-17 and so into a decider. Like the game or not, you could never see a closer encounter. On the blue ball, said bro said he was off to bed!

  3. mickydidit89 says:

    You, NB, are sooo tarnished, it’s untrue ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. arnie says:

    Lovely stuff, NorthBank. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Micky, I am travelling again, just reached Lisbon and off north along the coast now. I said that just to make you jealous. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Back laters. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. mickydidit89 says:

    NB
    Do you think the way a football fan is, ie either positive or negative, is directly related to the state of their personal lives?
    I certainly see Arsenal as a passion, yes, but also entertainment and definately far from life defining in any way.

  6. mickydidit89 says:

    Arnie
    Jealous? Yes. As we getting undressed/suited up this morning, we were talking about exactly that. How it must be growing up a hot water surfer. Never more than shorts. We cold water surfers really suffer for our art.

  7. mickydidit89 says:

    Ok, stage two of the day. Off to help a mate. Later.

  8. Talk to your big brother NB, while you still can.

  9. NorfolkG

    I do, all the time ๐Ÿ™‚ the last time we were together to share a bottle of whisky was 2010. When I come over in 2014 I’ll stay with him for a couple of days ๐Ÿ™‚

    Micky

    I think for many fans what’s happening in their personal life can affect how they support the Arsenal. My big bruv ain’t like that though, he has a very comfortable life… he just gets frustrated because he is passionate. The first game we ever went to together was Leeds away at the end of the first double season. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Rasp says:

    Thanks NB, another opportunity for introspection ๐Ÿ˜†

    I agree with Micky, bloggers’ attitudes are shaped by their personality and the state of their private lives to an extent – which is why I often trot out the line about how Arsenal should be the force that brings us together rather than divide us when there is a bit of unrest in the ranks.

    Some bloggers are reliable, some are fighters, some are moaners, some placate, others run away when the going gets tough – it takes all sorts and everything is voluntary so its all part of the package ๐Ÿ˜•

  11. Rasp says:

    BTW, congratulations to everyone on avoiding the GHF/GHE analogy (see room 101) I’m still waiting for someone to come up with an original and witty alternative ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. Rasp says:

    My brother’s a spud and every time I see him, he is the first to raise the topic of football with some cheap shot at Arsenal. It’s ridiculous because I have all the ammunition so after a couple of quick comparisons between the two teams, he changes the subject and we can get on again – so I guess in that case, football divides us to an extent, but it’s nothing to get upset over ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Rasp says:

    Since I’ve silenced the blog, here’s a question to occupy your minds ……

    Who are the most p****ed off?
    Manu supporters for selling Welbeck to us, or, the spuds fans for letting Sigurdsson go?

  14. ha ha Rasp

    I think everyone is now p****ed off because you’ve got a Spud as a brother ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Rasp says:

    I’m not the only one on here NB, our late friend DanDan’s brother was a totnum fan and I believe GN5 has some spud in his family (or am I confusing him with someone else) I bet anyone born in the North London area will have the same scenario.

  16. This is true Rasp ๐Ÿ™‚

    Back to your question, I should think the Mancs are more p***ed off for us getting Welbeck

  17. Rasp says:

    Maybe, but the mancs have got plenty in their strikeforce whereas the spuds could do with a good No.10 and Siggs has been fantastic for Swansea – 7 assists this season.

  18. chas says:

    Cheers, NB69.

    As far as I know my only relation with tuberous Solanum tendencies was my maternal Grandad. He had a habit (reportedly) of going to Highbury, standing on the North Bank and shouting his mouth off in an attempt at getting a fighting response.
    He was a lovely old boy, though – never used to let Ant or me win at any game we played against him. Typical spud (it was the only way he could get his own back). ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. GunnerN5 says:

    Unfortunately it’s true Rasp my Uncle George is an avid Spurs supporter, really strange as his 8 other brothers, including my Dad, were all Arsenal crazy,

  20. Rasp says:

    It just adds balance to your family GN5 ๐Ÿ˜†

  21. GunnerN5 says:

    NB,

    We must be clones, my brother (younger) is the most negative Arsenal fan I’ve ever come across, he is also a loud mouth know it all who is an “expert” after every game has been played.

  22. Rasp says:

    Incidentaly GN5, I became an Arsenal supporter because my best friend’s dad played for them in the late 40’s early 50’s. His name was Don Oakes – ever heard of him? He was a winger but was blighted with health problems and sadly died whilst still quite young after a long battle with alcoholism.

  23. chas says:

    The GHF/GHE conundrum has got me thinking. Different people seeing exactly the same thing but having different perceptions.

    I came across this after reading a bit about ‘framing’ both in a social sciences and a psychology sense.

    “Framing is so effective because it is a heuristic, or mental shortcut that may not always yield desired results; and is seen as a ‘rule of thumb’. According to Susan T. Fiske and Shelley E. Taylor, human beings are by nature “cognitive misers”, meaning they prefer to do as little thinking as possible. Frames provide people a quick and easy way to process information. Hence, people will use the previously mentioned mental filters (a series of which is called a schema) to make sense of incoming messages. This gives the sender and framer of the information enormous power to use these schemas to influence how the receivers will interpret the message.”

    ………… and I liked this phrase

    “information leakage from logically equivalent frames”

    Having said that, I still quite like the pants half off, pants half on analogy, Rasp (but obviously not in a smutty pornography way). ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Rasp says:

    That works for me chas ๐Ÿ˜› ….. or alternatively, blinkers half open, blinkers half closed – we’re all wearing blinkers, its just some have the positivity frame in operation and others the negativity frame?

    I like the idea of people being too lazy to think therefore they go for an easy cop out. There are clearly different kinds of intelligence and different criteria by which to judge it. You never see a millionaire winning mastermind!

  25. GunnerN5 says:

    Rasp, I cannot remember seeing him play and I didn’t recognize his name – so I looked him up on Arsenal.com

    ……………………………………………………………………………………

    Don Oakes joined Arsenal as an amateur in December 1945 and turned professional seven months later.

    The inside forward/wing half played 11 times in 10 years at the Club, making his debut in a 2-1 win over Aston Villa on the opening day of the 1946/47 season.

    But first-team opportunities proved difficult to come by and Oakes had scored just once before he was forced to give up the game due to rheumatic trouble in 1956.

    He scored 68 goals in 158 Football Combination appearances and won league honours in 1952/53.

    The attack-minded wide man completed National Service in the Army between 1946 and 1948. His father, Alfred, was a professional with Birmingham and Millwall.

  26. chas says:

    Don’t talk to NB69 about blinkers – who knows where it might lead!

    Haha, yep, I’ve always been academically quite bright but a complete disaster when it comes to practical earn-a-living type things.

    I like the idea that something can pish me off but if I look at it in a different way it has no effect whatsoever. It’s all about perceptions.

  27. Rasp says:

    Thanks GN5, he was a broken man when I knew him. He’d split up with his wife due to the drinking and was lost after he had to give up football – very sad

  28. RA says:

    An illuminating Post, Norther, ๐Ÿ™‚

    I do not have any ‘Spuds’ in my family, which is not surprising since I am the only one with any interest in ‘Soccer Ball’, athough my younger brother goes to games with me when he is over, as he enjoys the atmosphere (and secretly he is becoming a Gooner as he becomes more knowledgeable). ๐Ÿ™‚

    The two ‘sides’ to fandom, which affects all clubs in reality, is largely the result of personality.

    The two ‘extremes’ are made up of depressive personalities at the Doomer/Realist end, and the nutty รปber-optimists, like Terry Adonis at the other end. [I have to be honest and admit to finding the Terry types much more to my liking,]

    But the great majority of fans are neither one nor the other, and although affected by disappointing results, quickly bounce back.

    And what about me? Well, you may have no interest in the answer to that, and who could blame you, but I will tell you anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Life has a habit of kicking us when least expected, all of us, without exception, so I pursue activities and leisure that bring me pleasure, and that includes football, and the company that I keep.

    If I find something that does not fulfil that criteria, I walk away, from people, places and things, and that would include football too.

    Sacrilege? Well maybe, but that has not happened as regards the Arsenal, and never will, simply because everything in life is constantly changing including losing and winning, and the old Rudyard Kipling poem, which I once quoted at length on AA ,says it all – if you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters just the same, then you will be a man my son.

    Maybe I should just put that wonderful life poem up, again, because right now we could all use its advice. ๐Ÿ™‚

    IF, you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

    IF you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
    If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

    IF you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

    IF you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    ‘ Or walk with Kings – nor lose the common touch,
    if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
    Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!

    Bouldy’s birthday today, 52.
    Love his poaching instinct for the last goal and there’s a couple of belting tackles as well.

  30. Rasp says:

    Now that’s what I call tackling – I bet half of those would receive a red card today ๐Ÿ˜†

  31. Rasp says:

    I’ve seen Steve Bould up close in John Lewis Welwyn, he’s massive with a jaw that looks like it’s been chiseled out of Mount Rushmore.

    No comment ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. kelsey says:

    Actually I take that as an insult RA as I haven’t functioned properly for 30 years and most probably died 15 years ago ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. RA says:

    Kelsey,

    Don’t take it as an insult – it was simply a generalisation.

    To be candid, you did not, for a moment, enter my mind while I was formulating my theory, and that is all it was, a theory, to rationalise the deep divide in the way fans of all clubs react to disappointment – and it can be applied to all walks of life.

  35. kelsey says:

    I don’t see the connection between being a realist and having a depressive personality,RA ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was only kidding you, as you know.

  36. The Cockie Monster says:

    Two posts in one day from `69er !……lazy bastard !. hahaha

    This GHF/GHE stuff intrigues me and is probably most at home with our team which always tops the Injury League…..we`re not known in my household as……Glassenal for nothing !.
    Thing is, with players like Diaby, Wilshere, Ramsey, Sanogo, Arteta…..yawn yawn…I could go on and on and on …… who are known for being made of glass !……are they made from Glass Half Full or Glass half Empty ?.

    PS
    Our former player Sir Brave Robin, made of amber glass ( natural colorant of piss ) is said to have joined ……The Glass Blowers Association for his sexual kicks !.

  37. RA says:

    The names that are used are somewhat irrelevant, Kelsey, and ‘realist’ and ‘AKB’ are just slogans really that bloggers can use instead of ‘black hats’ or ‘white hats’.

    The black and white hats signified certain character types in old black and white cowboy movies. [In case you were wondering.]

    Actually, Kelsey, I am happy you asked for clarification, because, as usual, the blog dies the death whenever I comment. Again.

  38. RA says:

    Kelsey,

    I could have mentioned those bloggers known as ‘vindscreenvipers’ who oscillate from side to side — from one end of the supporters spectrum to the other.

    Did you know that Cockie Doodle Doo is the Chairman? ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. chas says:

    RA
    You’re definitely ‘pants half on’ when it comes to your contributions to the blog. Stop it, man.

    I always thought the black and white hats in Westerns were so you could easily identify the goodies from the baddies and nothing to do with distinguishing which were already on prozac from those who ought to be on it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. poigmothoin says:

    RA, poor Tonto with no hat at all.

  41. RA says:

    Very true, Chas.

    I was being careful to avoid offending someone by not identifying who were the ‘goodies and baddies’. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The blog has changed a lot since I first started commenting, and I tend to be a bit more outspoken about my contribution.

    We have lost an awful lot of people over the years, and attracted a lot too – it’s change – and that is no bad thing, but if there is a disconnect between the new guys and some of us older bloggers — well, no one wants to stay as a lingering pong. Well I don’t. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It is just a question of my loyalty to AA versus not wanting to overstay my welcome, and the more I end up taking to myself….. the stronger the message. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It is harder to fit in with the other blogs I am beginning to populate, but it is also a challenge, and you must have found that when you switched from Le Groan to AA…..but you were much more decisive. ๐Ÿ˜€

    By the way, have a look at the authors list and think of how many have long gone – and the biggest loss for me is Rocky and Total. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Kipling was right, I guess.

    Signed: the Undecided ๐Ÿ˜‰

  42. chas says:

    When Pedro was asked whether he was bothered about losing so many bloggers, his reply was that there were always more to take their place.

    The thing was, he didn’t mind if he was gaining idiots at the expense of good, intelligent bloggers. Once you introduce advertising it’s all about hits. It doesn’t matter how many times you are wrong in what you say, as long as what you say pulls in the punters.

    I don’t come on AA for the football chat as I seem to have heard most of it before. It’s weird when you look at the archives and a post from 2 years ago is saying exactly the same thing as one from last week. I come on here because I know folk and am almost guaranteed a laugh or smile each visit.

    I do think it’s perfectly natural for people to drift in and out of blogging. Not many have the time or inclination to comment every day and it’s only if you do that that it becomes a habit.

  43. The Cockie Monster says:

    I don’t come on here for the football chat either, chas !………I come on here for ….Rack Of The Day !………………….so where the fcuk is it ?. hahaha

  44. chas says:

    It’s a smut-free Sunday, Cockster.

  45. The Cockie Monster says:

    Oh…I get it !…..Sunday, the day of rest !, good, I felt a touch of blindness coming on !.

  46. chas says:

    I was going to add that I presumed you had plenty of appropriate links elsewhere to follow if you wanted that, oh hairy-palmed one. ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. Rasp says:

    It’s funny you should say that about Pedro chas because we are the opposite (and I know I can speak for peaches here) we keep this blog going because of the friends we want to keep together ๐Ÿ˜›

  48. The Cockie Monster says:

    hahaha Cross my hairy palm with silver !.
    Actually, chas……I`m surprised you don’t have an occasional dip into `69ers web-site !………It`s compulsory to be smutty on there !, you can do smut `till the cows come home….or sheep….or whatever is your fancy !…..someone once got binned for making a non-smutty remark !. hahaha

  49. RA says:

    That would be me, then, Cockman. ๐Ÿ™‚

  50. chas says:

    Cockie
    I always read NB69’s posts when he puts a link up here.
    I particularly enjoyed his early ones about his old bad boy days in Islington and about travelling to away games.
    As far as the comments section goes, I’m well out of my league. ๐Ÿ™‚

  51. The Cockie Monster says:

    Hahaha….I`m not having that !, and I know what the smileys really mean !…..both Redders and chas have Doctorate Degrees in Smut and Innuendo !. hahaha………………Is Innuendo an Innuendo of it`s self ?…..In-your-endo !.

  52. RA says:

    Chas at 4:13,

    That pretty much sums up my reasons for visiting AA, too.

    If I am being candid, some of the other blogs have people on them that I knew from a long time ago, on yet other blogs, and they are still saying the same vile bollox they were then – they know it – and are proud of it – shows they were right all along – apparently.

    It is my mission to throw light on……… no, I cannot be assed, but there are others of a different persuasion too, who are worth chatting to. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I cannot remember, but was it you who said some blogs revel in their determination to only be upbeat about the club? That can be as irritating as the ‘others’ – nothing can be that perfect. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Signed: Scrooge – bah, humbug.

  53. chas says:

    Rasp
    I remember standing outside the Tavern a few years back and Pedro and a few from his blog were there (suga3 amongst them, if memory serves). I know you (or was it, Peaches) have met Franchise and others in those old days. One I always wanted to meet was dennisdamenace. Even though his viewpoint was usually the opposite extreme from mine he could always make me laugh.

    I bet Pedro doesn’t bother meet any of his ‘customers’ now!

  54. RA says:

    Cockie,

    I am pure as the driven snow! On the other hand, you could be into something where Chas is concerned.

    Have you ever seen anyone with such vid control of porn delightful flowers? ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. Rasp says:

    I reckon you’re right there Chas. Franchise is actually a sweet guy, but he doesn’t always come across like that in blogs

  56. chas says:

    RA
    It’s predicting we will be 6th or 7th every year for the past umpteen years and then when it finally happens (as it surely will), those same people will say, ‘see, I was right all along’.
    That’s the attitude which really bugs me.

    There are blogs which are the antithesis of the really negative ones and they get on my nerves, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  57. The Cockie Monster says:

    Redders, I only read comments on 3 sites and I do actually read all of the comments, but must admit I`m always more drawn to the ones with humour than the tactical ones etc`. Give chas his due , he is one of the chief usual suspects of Ulnar nerve stuff !.

  58. chas says:

    Cheers, Cockie.

    Right I’m off to watch Dumb and Dumber as it was recommended to me as a really funny film.
    I’ll take a guess and say I’ll reach the first advert break before I jack it in!

  59. stevepalmer1 says:

    Evening all, Nice one Northbank. Not got any brothers, but do have a sister 3 years older. She Married a Spud who i never liked from the off, We never talked about football, for the simple reason we didn’t like one another. In fact had he been a Gooner i still wouldn’t have liked him.

    My sister now and again mentioned football but only after a bad result, which in those days we had quite a few, I feel that we should never have been related as we never got on as kids, she made sure that whatever got broke she would get to my mother first and make sure i always got the blame.

    Now i got used to always getting the blame, but deep down i never had a lot of time for her, While my Mother was alive we managed to to act as a family and as i lived just round the corner from my mum, i would do all the dirty work, and my sister only visited when she wanted something,

    After my mother died, she had left a will and made me the executor which really got up my sister and her husbands nose, anybody who gets this job knows what a pain in the arse, the chasing round and settling things up, certificates, every bugger wants a certificate. Anyway once the details and the funeral was all over, whatever was left which wasn’t a lot was shared out equally.

    Now we had words when i had written out cheques for her half, and have never spoken since. I have found that life has been sweet since my mother died, of course i miss her like mad but not having to see My Spud sister and the arsehole of her husband can continue till the day i die.

    Never trust a Spud never.

  60. Bloody hell Steve, that history is very similar to mine, I also have a sister who fell out with my big bruv. When our mum died a few years back my brother unfortunately had all the responsibility of organising everything. I was stuck in France and my sister didn’t want anything to do with it. Death and funerals and money, causes some of the biggest family probems.

    On another note, I’m pleased to hear that some on here read my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

  61. Eddie says:

    I read your blog NB! My brother is uber negative, but thank Dennis he is not an Arsenal supporter. He studies our results and when we win he congratulates me, if we lose he keeps schtum like a good boy.

    I heard stories about families falling out over inheritance, that is very sad. My mother left everything to me, when she is still alive on condition that I share it equally with my brother, which I will; I’d rather give him more than fall out.

    Anyway, we will probably lose to United and Wenger will resign by Christmas. That’s what I was told this week

  62. TERRY MANCINI HAIR TRANSPLANT says:

    Cheers 69

    Family hey? Ive got three brothers, one two years older and identical twins two years younger

    No sisters though. Thats why up to the age of thirty, when introduced to a girl I would giggle hysterically before punching her on the arm and then run off confused.

    There were certain advantages to been the middle brother. My older brother was a terrible bully who believed that certain soft parts of the body were ideal training ground for his future career as David Carradines replacement in hit seventies show Kung Fu. So the ability to attack first and ask questions later is a must.

    Now,If I spot a Buddhist monk or Hare Krishna type, I have to be held back

    I would also like to thank the twins for enabling my ambidexterity. Its difficult fighting two people at once. I can now walk the street talking to a client on the mobile whilst the left side of my body beats up a mugger.

    The down side comes to love making. The wife soon gets pissed off when half the body is doing it whilst the other half is reading the Arsenal program

    As for the moaning? I have to admit to mostly finding it funny, though it can get a bit draining. If I had wanted to be subject to all that crap I would still be with my first wife.

    Mind you, if I was still with her i would probably be the biggest moaner on here
