Bring Me Sunshine


Chambers   Koscielny  Hayden  Monreal

Ramsey  Wilshire   Arteta

Gnabry   Walcott Ozil

That is some team and one capable of winning this afternoon, unfortunately it is plucked from our lengthy injury list. 4 weeks out for Ramsey!

Why did I start with this? Two reasons – firstly that injuries will stop Arsenal having any chance of winning the PL this season, and I do believe we were in with a good chance; secondly, Mr Wenger said yesterday regarding the January transfer window ““If everybody is fit then we don’t need to go into the transfer market.” 

This worries me. Arsenal have consistently been top of the injuries league for many years, doesn’t Mr Wenger know this? Doesn’t he know that we never, repeat never, have an injury free squad. We have to buy or loan at least two players in the window if we are to challenge for Top 4. (update: Chas has pointed out that this was just part of AW’s speech and he has not written off the possibility of signings – Mr Wenger, not Chas 🙂 )

Newcastle: On a run of wins and arriving having “battered” the Chavs. They too have injuries but nothing like ours. They have pacy forwards who are in form, a solid defence  – Taylor is out but Coloccini could be fit. Alnwick starts who is  3rd choice GK but when we were forced to do so Martinez performed very well, I expect the same of Alnwick. Sissoko is suspended and that is good news.


Greenwich-born Steven Taylor. Ideal signing for AFC

Arsenal: So what do we have to win? It seems obvious to me that Newcastle will score so we must outscore them. Having so few defenders means we have a space for an extra attacker – so my tactic would be to play an extremely attacking side. A 3-4-3 would do it but Mr Wenger is likely to start young Bellerin on the right with Debuchy next to him. This sends Per to the left of defence which don’t work very well against Stoke, did it? Any team which kicks-off with Ox, Santi, Alexis, Welbz and OG has a chance of scoring heavily.

A little extra: Have you ever heard of Elisabeth Fry? You should have – she is on the back of the £5 note! She was a prison reformer during the early 19th century. Born in Norwich  to a wealthy banking family Elisabeth became a Quaker and heavily involved in humanitarian work. Horrified by the conditions of women at Newgate prison in London she resolved to make the prisoners brutal conditions easier and set up a charity to give food and medical care.

This was a time when a woman’s role in society was ornamental yet Fry became the first woman to present evidence to the House of Commons. In 1840 she opened a nurses school  – one of her pupils was Florence Nightingale who took a team of Fry’s nurses out to  the Crimean War. She then opened a large hostel for ladies who had fallen on hard times in Manor House and later a much larger one in Highbury, just around the corner from The Emirates .  She died in Ramsgate in 1845.


Have you seen this woman?

Back to football. Should be a cracking game today and one full of attacking play. Given the paucity of defenders and the excellent form of the visitors we cannot be too optimistic but with Alexis in the team anything is possible. A win would make my weekend.

    Mr Preview..

  12. Big Raddy says:

    Thanks A & D. Enjoy the game

  13. Viktor says:

    Until Arsene finds himself seeking a physio on his own list case of injury, then the need to reinforce arsenal defence line will become imperative to him. Lets keep eyes on aw’s injury news. A couch injured?

  14. arnie says:

    Motning all. Bloody Saturday mornings are tough.

    Great motning batner. Looks like matchday. and a lovely A&D show!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    great pre-match as ever, Raddy. 🙂 The most scary thing about your injury league team is that Diaby does not even find a place. Some time back, he was the perpetual captain.

    anyway, we should make easy work of Newcastle at home. COYG. 🙂

  15. arnie says:

    Ant. I am around, enjoying the Ant n’ Duck show and keeping watch. 😛

  16. arnie says:

    Raddy. missed the connection of Elizabeth Fry. must be the excess of ubiquitous fluids! 😛

  17. Eddie says:

    nails not worth doing, will be half eaten by 8pm

    I busy thinking.

  18. ‘morning all,

    A fine pre-match, thanks Raddy, Elizabeth Fry has a road named after her in Norwich.

    What’s the purpose of the Academy? Haven’t we got a centre-half capable of playing for the first team? Debuchy has never played centre-back, he’s had twenty four hours to learn the job, it’s farcial situation. Isaac Hayden is a centre-back, why can’t he play? It would be a round peg in a round hole, but our manager prefers to put a right back in there instead. Ludicrous!

    Apparently weve called Cocquelin, a mid-fielder, back from loan, but it’s defenders we’re short of so why not Jenkinson?

    There must be some logic in Wenger’s thinking, but I’m b******d if I can see it.

  19. Big Raddy says:

    NG. I read that Hayden is injured which is why we used O’Connor in Turkey

  20. Rasp says:

    Lovely Saturday morning PM Raddy accompanied by a ‘Fry up’ 😀

    Well I have absolutely no idea what to expect today. I think Pardew has been very clever with his use of the media and is secretly saying to his players ….

    “they think I’ve gone soft but it’s all a ploy, I want you to go out there and kick their soft southern arses off the park and I’ll give it to that skinny stuck-up french git on the touchline”

  21. Eddie says:

    Great post Raddy, thank you. I feel utterly stupid – of course I have heard of Steven Taylor but Elisabeth Fry doesn’t even ring a bell. Bloody typical football yob 😦 Thank you!

    The game – we score first we win. We concede in the first half and a point will be most we get.

    The injuries this season are just diabolical, that Shad geezer has to go or Micky and I will have to put the kit on

  22. LB says:

    The only issue I have with that team up there is that it should have Diaby rather than Wilshere, Abou’s injury record is far more impressive. lol

  23. Rasp says:

    No one mention its the 13th today 🙄

  24. BR, OK if Hayden is injured why not O’Connor then, good enough for an away tie in the Champions League but not for a home game in the Premiership?

    Rap, yes but it only applies to Fridays. 😀

  25. Big Raddy says:

    Is the lack of comments anything to do with another piss poor performance in the cricket?

    Any team news?

  26. Rasp says:

    Jenkinson playing a blinder for West Ham, shame we didn’t keep him at the Arsenal

  27. What the fuck has cricket got to do do with anything…… i’m drunk Eddie save me 🙂

  28. Big Raddy says:

    NB. Drunk pre-match? That is one of the problems of late afternoon kick offs

  29. Interesting piece in the Telegraph reference our injury problems.

    “Arsenal have seven regular first-team players out injured and the club’s methods have been attacked by the outspoken former Wales and Manchester City fitness coach, ­Raymond Verheijen.

    Verheijen regularly hits out at the training methods of Premier League clubs and branded David Moyes, the former Everton and Manchester United manager, a “dinosaur”.

    On his personal Twitter feed, Verheijen wrote: “Sad to read the news about yet another muscle injury for Aaron Ramsey. His injury record at Arsenal is simply shocking for such a young player.

    “Robin van Persie is only 31, but more and more starts to look like an old man on the pitch because of all damage done to his body during his Arsenal period. The same career-threatening process takes place at Arsenal with Ramsey, [Theo] Walcott, [Jack] Wilshire and [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain, who are structurally injured.

    “Players who are injured season after season develop all kind of weak links inside the body, so a vicious injury cycle develops during their career. Thankfully, [Cesc] Fabregas was able to escape Arsenal after a few years so the amateurs in London did not get the chance to also destroy his body”

    Seperately, Wenger on Debuchy as a centre-back, Wenger recognises that moving him to an unnatural position would be a big risk. “Of course it would be, but the solution I have to decide will not be ideal – it will be a gamble,” he said. “But there is not a massive difference between right-back and centre-back.”

    That last sentence says it all for me, Wenger just does not “get” defenders!

    Wenger on Ramsey’s injury situation, “He told me yesterday he was very positive and much better, and that he would play, then he texted me late last night and said he was out,” Who runs our medical department? Surely it’s not for the player to make that decision.

  30. Eddie says:

    feck off nb, I hate drunks

    Gosh, I remember times when I could barely last through the first half and remember nothing from the game. Brrrr……. I still feel sick just thinking about it.

    It is going to be VERY hard indeed. I hate Pardew speaking up for Wenger, that hurts if an old enemy has to defend someone we should at the very least respect

  31. Gotta go, second half of Saints Vs Treviso has just started.

  32. Gööner In Exile says:

    Afternoon all.

    Before I go and read the prematch I just looked at the Chav match on BBC, was expecting a possession and shot fest from Chavs and to see Hull were doing well to keep it at single goal.

    Needless to say found out Chavs were 1-0 up after 7 minutes.

    In the following 50 minutes they have managed 2 more shots.

    Hull on the other hand have had 7.

    Thing is I get that this is one way of winning the league, but man that is intensely boring to watch as a supporter.

    Would we rather Arsenal play like Chavs and don’t win the league or play like we try to and not win the league?

    Also following on from recent discussions regarding disrespect shown towards Arsene from a small but increasingly vocal and able to get themselves heard minority…a comparison was made to BrianClough….went something like this:

    “When Clough got relegated with Forest it was the end of an era, he had lost control of the dressing room, he had lost control of his personal life (alcoholism etc).

    Not once was he subjected to the level of personal criticism and insults heaped on Wenger a man who is still in control, nowhere near the relegation fight, with a team that appears to still play for him (read comments by Ramsey). It is unfortunately a trait of the modern life where there is a lack of respect given by people, a lack of manners and a lack of self control.”

    I was impressed, needless to say it’s not a position you’ll hear from many pundits. It was from a Times columnist on the Game podcast.

    And then you have comments from the likes of Pardew, if Arsene was to leave Pardew would be the longest serving manager in the EPL, what’s that tell you about the problems in the game?

    One bit of good news yesterday the next PL TV rights are up for bidding starting 2017, Friday Night Football up for offer.

  33. Gööner In Exile says:

    The comments from Verrrigggggjjhjjen should be taken with a large pinch of salt.

    Ramsey has been injured a lot, but I’d guess a good percentage from having his leg half amputated. Cesc had a broken leg, Diaby a broken ankle, Jacks troubles stem from an injury sustained during an England international, oh and constant fouling, can’t remember him being put through muscle injury.

    “Booking” 😀

    Anyone around to join me on the sofa?

  37. mickydidit89 says:

    fantastic big, superb rea, thank you
    best laptop plugged into telly, and tis one has no caps or letter after “c”, so bear with me

    a good thrashing for newsacstle is what I reckon

  38. Eddie says:

    big guns
    Giroud, Welbeck and Sanchez, hm

  39. Eddie says:

    move over Raddy, I like the corner seat

  40. mickydidit89 says:

    quick fag an back

  41. Gööner In Exile says:

    On the office chair as I’m working……small screen is work 24″ screen for the footy.

  42. mickydidit89 says:

    ooo that was ice from sanchez

  43. mickydidit89 says:

    booking 🙂

  44. Rasp says:

    The physical assault has started on Sanchez already. 1 missed booking by the ref

  45. Big Raddy says:

    Love Sanchez passing

  46. Rasp says:

    I like the way we’re competing for the ball

  47. mickydidit89 says:

    when I said ice by sanchez, meant nice, but ice is extra cool. I like

  48. Gööner In Exile says:

    Rasp, its Mason…. the man who Cesc once asked if he’d taken a payment on the way in at half time……

  49. mickydidit89 says:


  50. Gööner In Exile says:

    Cracking goal 😀

  51. Rasp says:

    Brilliant goal, superb cross from Sanchez

  52. Gööner In Exile says:

    What an absolute joke Mason!

  53. Big Raddy says:

    What a cracking goal. Great play from OG

  54. Rasp says:

    Bellerin growing in confidence

  55. Big Raddy says:

    Another shit ref. Nothing wrong with the goal – Mason once again showing how poor he is

  56. mickydidit89 says:

    eddie did you hear that, arsenal looking dangerous from corners 🙂

  57. mickydidit89 says:

    d is back

  58. Gööner In Exile says:

    Sanchez is made of iron i’m sure, studs in chest and then a ball smashed into the rib cage from less than a foot and twice he just takes a moment to compose himself and gets back to his feet.

    Thats actually the best way to deal with the kicking brigade, don’t show that you’ve been hurt.

  59. mickydidit89 says:

    bloody hell bellerin, you’re quick and good

  60. mickydidit89 says:

    ooooo ahhhhh that would have been a great goal

  61. Gööner In Exile says:

    Fantastic save by Szczesny

  62. Rasp says:

    We should be 3 up, but must keep playing the same and keep up the intensity

  63. Rasp says:

    Giroud needs to stop being such a tart and get up on his feet more quickly when he loses the ball

  64. mickydidit89 says:

    bloody excellent game

  65. Rasp says:

    Don’t let them mug us just before half time

  66. eddie…. I hate drunks as well

  67. mickydidit89 says:

    shoooooot 🙂

  68. RA says:

    Just listening to the half time ‘analysis’ and surprise, surprise, ‘was that handball Alan?’ came up. ‘Yes it probably was!’ncame the reply.

    They had agreed that Welbeck had no idea where the ball was after it hit his head and deleted to his hand.

    The rules are clear;
    “A handball occurs if any player, other than the team’s goalkeeper within his own penalty area, deliberately handles the ball when in play. A ball can be handled with any part of the arm, from the tips of a player’s fingers right up to the shoulder.

    So what part of ‘deliberate’ comes into ‘he did not know where the ball was’?

    The rules are clearly not important to any of these pillocks.

  69. Eddie says:

    nb – try to concentrate, it is a good game, try watching with one eye it helps to focus 🙂

    welbeck. excellent player, but could put a few more in the net

  70. Big Raddy says:

    If we don’t take 3 points it will be due to Mason. He is s bad as the mug we had at Stoke.

    Good game with Necastle playing attacking football.

    Ox having a super game

  71. eddie….. concentrating promise


  73. Rasp says:

    Superb skill …….

  74. Concentrating EDDIE

  75. Eddie says:

    my, my, mine Santiago

  76. Gööner In Exile says:

    What a goal Santi!!!!

  77. mickydidit89 says:

    class santi in not taking the dive
    lovely goal

  78. Gööner In Exile says:

    I bloody hope they’re singing his praises for staying on his feet tomorrow. Saved Colloccini seeing red.

  79. harsh yellow for the Ox

  87. Gööner In Exile says:

    Alexis switched off a bit there

  88. mickydidit89 says:

    im sensing some tension on the sofa
    they got a goal
    so what
    we will get one more

  89. 15 minutes to go 3-1 up…… playing well

  90. sofa very comfortable…

  91. missed a good chance there

  92. Eddie says:

    four years ago we were winning 4:0 against the magpies

    what nb?

  93. bloody hell…….the Arsenal fans are singing

  94. you just know… with a hair cut like that, they will foul all the time

  95. 6 minutes to go …. 3-1 up…

  96. Gööner In Exile says:

    5 minutes to go

    “One Arsene Wenger” can be heard nice…

  97. Eddie says:

    “one Arsene Wenger” sang round the stadium.

    hi nb, watch the game

  98. Gööner In Exile says:

    Bloody hell what happened to Coqelin’s hair….did he borrow some of Stefan O’Connors?

  99. Gööner In Exile says:

    I love the Pod’s left foot, but sometimes he does appear to run round like a bloke who won a competition to be there

  100. Gööner In Exile says:


  101. I’m watching penalty

  102. Gööner In Exile says:

    Cheeky Santi

  103. straight up the middle Eddie

  104. Gööner In Exile says:

    2 minutes to go 4-1 can we relax yet?

  105. Eddie says:

    GiE – working hard then 🙂

    embarrassing pen for the keeper

  106. Gööner In Exile says:

    Not bad for a lad who according to many should have had a spell getting splinters

  107. Rasp says:

    🙂 great team performance, Debuchy can play CB and Bellerin improved every game

  108. Eddie says:

    is ox limping???

  109. Gööner In Exile says:

    Annsley Maitland-Niles ……. Conservative

  110. Gööner In Exile says:

    Rasp you never know maybe Debuchy was a like for like Sagna replacement in that he was 3rd choice Centre Back and Monreal was 4th and Chambers 5th?

  111. Rasp says:

    Maybe GiE, it certainly increases our defensive options

  112. Good win……… the Magpies beat the Chavs last week

  113. Eddie says:

    now we can relax 🙂

  114. Gööner In Exile says:

    Job done, good display

    Ox could make that position his own you know and I don’t know what you do with Jack and Aaron then?

  115. the Boosh has some nice ink

  116. mickydidit89 says:

    great result
    some great football
    lots of goals
    ice 🙂

  117. fatgingergooner says:

    Good performance, excellent goals.

    Loved Ox running from midfield and I’m wondering if Wilshere, Ramsey or Özil are any better in that position.

    Sanchez is different class to everyone on the field.

    Cazorla back to something like his best.

    Debuchy was excellent, although they didn’t offer too much going forward.

    Good to hear the crowd singing for Wenger.

    Happy days!

  118. Gööner In Exile says:

    As someone just said on twitter some peoples heads will be exploding with the “One Arsene Wenger” singing, just kind of proving that there are a few more for than against I guess and they decided they wanted to be heard

  119. Big Raddy says:

    Ox my MotM. Superb energetic performance.

    Flamini also excellent.

    Danish Gooners are happy

  120. Big Raddy says:

    Watching OG’s second. It was pure class.

  121. Eddie says:

    I was most impressed with Bellerin, he’s the future

  122. Lovely Jubbly, mange tout mange tout coq au vin coq au vin boeuf bourguignon boeuf bourguigon merde alors

  123. quatre une c’est bon

  124. The French Gooner is very happy

  125. mickydidit89 says:

    sorry to vanish
    straight into world surf finals

  126. Chavs get refs help

    “Twice, Chelsea players have dived in the first 60 minutes – first Willian and Gary Cahill. It’s disgraceful. Managers can’t say what I’m about to say – it questions the integrity of the refereeing. Is he intimidated by Stamford Bridge? The referee is not being fair. Cahill is on a yellow card and dived. He should have got another booking for that. The only conclusion you can come to is because it’s Chelsea and now the injustice has got the Hull players’ blood boiling. They’re thinking they might as well take the law into their own hands.”

    The criminal way is the same the world over 🙂

  134. I wonder how the surfing championships are going ha ha

  135. ‘evening all,

    Despite the very best/worst efforts of that plum-head Lee Mason, that was a very good performance by our guys. With him refereeing to have only one goal in five disallowed takes some doing.

    Almost a very good defensive display, let down only by the absence of anyone marking Perez for their goal.

    Debuchy did well to fill in at centre-back, if he was six-four instead of five-nine he’d be pretty useful in that position.

    Was the Ox limping as he left the field?

  136. Enemys of Vladimir Putin eh? Watch out Alisher.

    Northbank, its about time they start sliding down a bit. I still think we will finish third, knowing that if we were a bit luckier, injuries, and otherwise, we could have challenged. I have been saying that next year we complete the puzzle and challenge and wi. Also, I think we will take out a big team in the next champs league round. Surprise everybody. My prediction.

  158. Ant says:

  159. chas mobile says:

    Really good, BR.
    Walking round Soho was very interesting. I bet you could have done it better, though. Turned out our guide was a chav season ticket holder but he was surprisingly OK even so. He had a few personal experiences of working near to Raymond’s Revue Bar which were most illuminating!

  160. Ant says:

    The tour was fabulous BR. We’ve seen every sex shop left..

    Rod singing Maggie May is one of my worst childhood memories😃


    Cheers Raddy

    Think ime going to do a show to rival Ant & Duck. “Terrys travels from and to Bound Greens”

    Full of wonderful sober moments, and hilarious non activity on the Tube. Highlight of the day…Terry gets off at Manor House to make a bit of a walk of it.

    Great result and performance. Belerin has massive potential and Sanchez is brilliant.

    Delighted for Arsene Wenger. The man has secured our future. In a couple of years his successor will inherit a club than can win titles and chalange consistently. The same can not be said for the likes of Liverpool and Totnumb. People should remember that.

    Ant und Duck

    Here’s a game. We’ll play: have another drink and then you tell us all exactly what you think of….

    Before we get to individual bloggers 🙂 we’ll have a warm up shall we.

    Ok, here we go, just to get into the swing of things… an easy one…

    hippies 🙂

  191. Ant says:

    Too much hair and little sense!

  192. chas mobile says:

    I love hippies and punks, it’s metal I can’t stand. 🙂

  193. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Right, that’s pathetic. Rule change. Two drinks or no more go’s 🙂

  194. chas mobile says:

    How’s the surfing going? Are the long boarders ripping up the pipe?

  195. Ant says:

    The fridge is empty..Terry’s walked by it on his way to Bounds Green

  196. Ant says:

    I can’t wait for the Terry Bounds Green day out tales..

  197. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Been watching the heats.
    It’s a seriously shitballs scary day there right now. Broken boards everywhere. One in hospital and I’ve only seen one actually get out of a tube.

    And you can fuck off about longboarders. We’re the hippies of the sea, alright 🙂

  198. chas mobile says:

    That walk from Manor House past all the brothels is just beautiful. I envy you.

  199. Ant says:

    And as for Bounds Green…..

  200. Ant says:

    What do you think of TRB Micky?

  201. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Super, Ant 🙂

  202. Rasp says:

    Tom Robinson Band?

  203. chas mobile says:

    Nearly at Notts. Oh revoyre.

  204. Ant says:

    Yes indeed..

  205. Rasp says:

    24 6 8 motorway?

  206. Ant says:

    I can’t take no for an answer…

  207. Rasp says:

    That too 🙂

  208. Rasp says:

    Trevor Horn was responsible for the best bit of production in that era with fgth – relax, it used to sound incredible at the clubs

  209. MickyDidIt89 says:

    He was the Buggles or something wasn’t he Rasp?

  210. Rasp says:

    That’s right – video killed the radio star

  211. Rasp says:

    But he was really a produced who dabbled

  212. MickyDidIt89 says:

    24 6 8 motorway!! 🙂
    You were smoking things back then weren’t you Rasp? 🙂

  213. Rasp says:

    I claim the 5th amendment 🙂

  214. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Horn’s wife ran a recording studio. Hard as nails she was.

  215. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Right must go, as despite my jocular exterior, I’m actually feeling a bit depressed.

    Paddling out to surf today, I realised there was no oxygen in the veins of my arms, and I’m beginning to think I might have to cut down on the fags.

    Gloomy thought 😦


  216. Ant says:

    Sweet dreams of Tom Micky😛

  217. arnie says:

    ha ha ha ha ha. how good was that? 🙂

    lovely show from the good guys! and from Ant n’ Duck! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    all day lifting stuff and driving. helping a friend move house. saw the game in a pub and got very drunk! 🙂

  218. arnie says:

    a prick called up TalkShite to say that the Wenger Out Brigade will not give up. Ever. Even if the good guys win all the games. Why? because apparently Wenger is past his sell-by date.

    gobshites. who was it who said Jenks had a great game? Yes, right, but if he had missed the goal that he did and he was playing for us. God forbid!

    who was it who said Giro was the most shite CF in the whole of the PL. Suggesting anyone from Heskey to Altidore to Bony as replacement?

    UNLUCKY Danny. having said that, he heeds to improve his first touch.

    some supporters we have, eh? is it much the same for all clubs, though? thank Dennis for the likes of Ant n’ Duck! 🙂

  219. arnie says:

    is Santi’s goal our best team goal this season? will be nice to see some vids in the motning.

    wakey wakey early, Chas! 🙂

  220. arnie says:

    and this one is for Ant. 😛

  223. MickyDidIt89 says:

    The sitar might just have elevated itself to most annoying sound, and yes, I include Rolf Harris’ Stylophone 🙂

  224. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Those were the days

  225. Gööner In Exile says:

    Punk overload ….. But it’s welcomed as the blog seemed to drift towards 80’s electro synth last night with mention of Frankie etc

    I’m not here but just wanted to reiterate what a pity it was that Wellys goal was chalked off by Mason. It was a delightful little finish following a good strong run, and unfortunately without goals some fans may question what he offers.

    I’m a fan, he has surprised me with his work without the ball and his strength, his touch isn’t quite up there to normal AFC standards but something tells me more time with the ball in training is starting to pay dividends, look at the little drag pass into Ox’s feet, something we would swoon over if done by Thierry.

    And of course for me I love a silent assist, one of the reasons Ollie was jumping against their left back was the movement of Welly to the near post which dragged the centre back out of the middle.

  226. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Damn, have I missed our game on MOTD

  227. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Also worth remembering how young Danny is, and how little time he’s played at the top level given his limited starts at Utd

  228. Eddie says:

    I am still delighted with the result 🙂

    We have Fabregas to get over, but what about Chavs getting over Lampart? If City catch up with Chelsea I will be down to Fat Frank, he is a revelation in Manchester 🙂 🙂

  229. Eddie says:

    looking at the stats and highlights of Burnley v Southampton you’d think that the Saints won by a few goals. But no, oh no, Burnley scored the winning goal, just one. That’s football for you.

    And WBA v Villa was a rugby game, awful.

  230. Big Raddy says:

    Morning All,

    I am still basking in the after-glow. Easily the most enjoyable game of the season against a good side.

    AW said two years ago that Ox would be a MF and yesterday he showed why

  231. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Morning Big

    I said that about The Ox before Arsene did. Fact 🙂

    I also said he would be the best Englishman to ever play for The Arsenal. That too will be a fact 🙂

  232. Good morning Ladyboys 🙂

    First chance to leave a comment… been busy rushing my own post this morning.

    Great game yesterday……….. despite our injuries and another makeshift defence, got a comfortable win against one of the inform sides. A side that beat the Chavs last week. After Christmas the top of the league will be wide open and we’ll be knocking on the door. 🙂

  233. I feel a bit like Reggie the cat this morning:

  234. Big Raddy says:

    Knock,knock. Who’s there?:-)

    Micky. Better than Paul Davis?

  235. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Match Notes sent

  236. MickyDidIt89 says:

    I really liked Paul Davis, and not just because of his right hook, but be serious 🙂

  237. Big Raddy says:

    Micky. You accuse me of levity??

    Beter than Buchan, Drake, Wright, Adams, Alan Ball, Kenny Sansom, Seamo etc ?

    If he is I will buy you a cherry tree.

  238. Morning all

    I’m proper poorly 😦 and treating myself to a third viewing of MOTD in my bed.

    Too much information probably. Micky have you sent some words to publish today cos I’ll get up if you have.

    Where’s Kelsey?

  239. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Crikey NB, you’ve got eight bitches clambering all over you? You did do well last night 🙂

  240. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Peaches. Yes Dear, and hope you get better soon.

  241. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Yip 🙂
    Tree please

  242. chas says:

    Loving Reggie the cat.

  243. On it, back in a min

  244. Big Raddy says:

    God bedring Peaches

    I thought my link with Elisabeth Fry and the fiver was worthy of comment. Clearly not as only 3 people bothered and I bet few of our readers had the faintest idea of who she was.

    Still what should I expect from a bunch of Doomers 🙂

  245. Big Raddy says:

    Cat = Fat and disinterested. = Nasri.

    Puppy Dogs, full of beans and laughter = Oxlade-Chamberlain

  246. chas says:

    Did she make these, BR?

  247. New Post everyone ……………………….

  248. Hi, the whole thing is going sound here and ofcourse every one is sharing
    information, that’s genuinely good, keep up writing.
