Arsenal v Hull. Match Feelings.

Last nights’ Arsenal performance against Hull came two days after Chelsea’s title winning performance against Crystal Palace. Of course Trophies matter, but to win the League the supporter will have to pay to watch seventeen home league games. You see where I’m going with this.

Can you imagine the satisfaction if Arsene could go on to win the title next season playing this type of football. Fans of Football last night had smiles on their faces, but the players played with smiles as well. It was a celebration of why the beautiful game was invented in the first place.

Right. Match Talkies.

–        Mesut, Santi, Aaron and Alexis. Understanding, movement, flicks, defence splitters, vision, goals. You work it out J

–        Aaron on the right. I have been critical, but only because I think he’s an excellent box to boxer, and more effective central. I do, however, see the problem. Santi is undroppable.

–        Aaron goes off. Theo does not come on!

–        Jack. What do you reckon? Not the finesse of yer Aarons and Santis, but certainly energy and thrust in abundance. Charged the length of the pitch, brushed aside some Hullers, smashed into a defender and won a free kick on the edge of their box. Didn’t get injured. Gave away a ball in midfield setting up a Northern attack. Did lots of other great work. He has Arsenal DNA. He’s still only 23.

–        Theo. Didn’t start again. Didn’t come on for Aaron. Did play as striker when he did eventually appear. On a completely separate note, I’d like a fast, mobile striker. Does Arsene? He did once say that Sanchez would move central as soon as Theo was fit. Would love to know what The Boss is thinking on this one.

–        Always a mention for Francis Coquelin. He’s the catalyst that makes it all possible.

Well, I think that just about wraps up my feelings.

Ok, all together now: “It’s happened again, it’s happened again, Tott…………”

    Cheers, Micky.

    I thought of LB during the match as well.
    It just happened to coincide with Jack’s arrival on the pitch. 🙂

    When Wenger said Sanchez would move central, wasn’t that when Big Ollie was out injured?

    Here’s Mesut smiling that he chose the right club to move on to after Real.

  2. Good. Very good.
    Lets hope for a bright future with this lot!

    Even though I like Giroud and his attitude I am maybe thinking that this is the position that needs to be strengthened to push on to the next level? In this question lies also the length of the team. If we had Pogba, for example, playing dm then we could use shorter players in other positions. But not now.

    Its a puzzle.

    And is Santi leaving like the rumours say? That would leave a gaping hole.

    I thought Jack looked fantastic. A bit on the edge, but very decided on making a mark, not hesitant at all. Lovely!

  3. mickydidit89 says:

    I think Arsene said that when Theo was injured and Sanchez was playing right. Yes Ollie was injured, but Danny was filling in at the time.
    My badly made point was the fact that Arsene clealy conceived of playing a short ‘un central. Suarez styley 🙂

    I too ponder the tall/short balance in a side. Tehn I think of dm’s like Mascherano. Tricky.

  4. chas says:

    Barcelona only have Pique and Biscuits who aren’t midgets.
    They be swamped at Stoke. 🙂

  5. Always good to share Mdi89’s feelings after a night like last night.
    A Knot Ear today but had to ghost on to wish Happy St Totteringham’s day to one and all.

  6. chas says:

    Both Ramsey and Cazorla have to play at the moment.
    Rambo is more effective further forward. Simples. 🙂

  7. ‘morning all,

    I like the post Micky, well done.

    I didn’t see much evidence of Ramsey doing his usual “job on the right”, in fact he moved inside almost as soon as the game started.

    The fact that we totally dominated the first half meant Hull offered no threat whatsoever down that side of the pitch, so young Bellerin could cope pretty well on his own. (just how will Debuchy get back in the side?)

    I thought we eased off a bit in the second half and allowed Hull a way back into the game, that may be understandable but we lack the killer instinct, goal difference could well decide our final league position.

    I was delighted with the style, the flicks and tricks but I would have liked another goal or two as well.

    Am I being unreasonable?

  8. mickydidit89 says:

    I know what you mean about that 15 minute perid of possession passing arounf stuff, but we’ll only regret it if we lose second by gd of no more than two goals. City have easy games, we have Utd away. We’ll see, but to be honest 3rd avoids that CL qualifying nonsense.

  9. Micky, if we are serious about actually coming first, in the future, we need to be much more ruthless. We must make other teams fear us.

  10. mickydidit89 says:

    Totally agree. To go for the title/cl we need to go up a notch.

  11. RA says:

    Nice one, Mickish. 🙂

    That is a fair summing up of events.

    A lot of fans get their knickers in a twist regarding Aaron’s position, but you mentioned a salient fact and I also thing Enn Gee has it right too.

    Nominally Aaron is down to play on the ‘right wing’ but his visits there are as rare as a cuckoo in August, as he seems to play both box to box, and in the box behind Ollie, as well as across the pitch. [I know – football parlance does lend itself to misunderstandings] 🙂

    The resulting disconnect between his supposed position and the positions he actually does take up, does not seem to register with some who complain that he is wasted out right, or is rubbish out right. The fact he hardly plays there does not seem to be an issue.

    NG is also correct that Belli-button is fleet of foot and acts as the winger, altho he too can run diagonally across the field at times and causes the opposition problems.

    This can be tricky in defence sometimes, but between them Le Coq, Cazzor and the afore-mentioned Aaron usually cover for Belli the winger very well.

    Crikey – imagine me agreeing with both you and the Norfolk Sage? 🙂

  12. In a bar, having a drink and soaking up the sunshine so just a quicky to say… Happy St Totteringhams day my Gooner bloggers 🙂


  13. RA says:

    Giro, surprise, surprise is coming in for a certain amount of stick from fans as not being ‘good enough’.

    Thierry Henry said as much in his role as a pundit, and AW has given him a flee in his ear. For myself I love the guy for the effort he puts in, the classy flicks and ball control he is capable of and, of course, the goals he scores.

    So, what’s not to like? Well I do sometimes think of him when I am watching top teams in the CL and the truth of it is that Ollie does not often make goals for himself – and by that I mean watching Suarez, or Benzema of Costa, it is obvious to me that they make things happen when they are not getting much service from team mates, and that can make the difference between winning or losing games.

    There should be a place in the team for Ollie – his height is important in defence as well as in attack, his attitude is spot on – when he is not holding his head and complaining to the ref – and his never-say-die when chasing lost causes. But we need to add the natural goal scorer which will make the next ratchet up to being Champions happen – Aaron is our back up goal scorer, but he has enough to do with all the other positions he plays in during a game. 🙂

  14. RA says:

    I know i did not mention Sanchez, and he is a great goal scorer, but Wenger really plays him as a winger, as I see it, and if he came inside perhaps he would lose his explosive running etc. Me no Know? 🙂

  15. RA says:

    Hi NB, 🙂

    Did you read my comment regarding my knee procedure, to explain why I could not meet up?

    It’s a bit sore, but hopefully with the physic etc all will be well soon. 🙂

    By the way – you are a jammy artist living in France and toasting yourself – in more ways than one. 🙂

  16. Ooooh! Redders agrees with me, I’ll have to re-think my position. 😀

  17. mickydidit89 says:

    I think you are saying Ollie for CB 🙂

  18. RA says:

    I seem to be on one of my commenting rambles – so I better go before the Hippy shows up. 😉

  19. mickydidit89 says:

    Nice to hear from you NB

    Exciting meeting in 12 mins. Must go and sharpen a pencil.

  20. RA says:


    Ollie is essential when we are defending free kicks or corners. So yes, CB for Ollie — it has happened before – hasn’t it? 🙂

  21. wally says:

    Unfortunately i’ve been traveling and missed the last two. but certainly last nite’s commentary sounded as though we’re ticking over like an F1.
    Two games left, manure and the cup. I would really love to beat manure at the toilet, that would be some satisfaction wouldn’t it. And av seem to be undergoing a revival under sherwood. They could be dangerous.

    I said earlier that this is a team for next year. I haven’t changed my opinion. I don’t think we need much. Another dm of coq’s caliber for sure (sorry flamini, arteta and diaby, thanx for your service and good luck in the future). I do think that perhaps for Euro comps we need a different kind of forward instead of ollie. Not to dismiss him, just something different. Someone a little more dynamic, maybe welbz could do it, maybe theo, maybe someone new. And if the PIG decides he wants to go i’d love to get cech (who wouldn’t).
    Other than that i think all the pieces are there, the attitude is right, the team is performing like an a cappella act.

  22. mickydidit89 says:

    Final thought. Imagine a Suarez or Aguerro fiddling about with Sanchez, Mesut et al

  23. RA says:


    When you are right – I agree you are right – except when we are both wrong – in which case I will blame you! 🙂


  24. RA says:


    Not sure about the verb – to fiddle — violin or ‘the other thing’? 😉

  25. Fiddle? Isn’t that what accountants do?

  26. RA… yes I did see your comment about your knee……. perhaps next time, but to be honest, living in the South of France is starting to lose it’s attraction. After visiting the UK last week I started to realise that I miss many things in England. Here for me now the only benefit is the sunshine….. oh yea, and the cheap wine but that’s all. Hold on, yea, the women as well ha ha ha. But that;s all.
    I’ve been offered some accomodation on the South Coast, near Littlehampton and I’m seriously considering coming back to good old blighty. France is starting to get on my nerves now… and the police have my number, so time to move on tee hee. 🙂

  27. Nothing wrong with fiddling 🙂

  28. GoonerB says:

    Thanks Micky. I was impressed with our play yesterday and while you can only beat what is in front of you, as is often said, it has to be said that we looked good against Hull. This was not a Munich or a Chelsea who we will have to find ways of overcoming if we want to win the big prizes. Against the Hull’s of this world any weaknesses or chinks in our Armour will likely remain unexploited, so we only get to see the beautiful side of Arsenal. Those subtle weaknesses though will be exposed by teams like Chav’s, Munich , Real, Barca, which is why I feel it is important to look slightly deeper and not stand still.

    RA hits the nail on the head with his 11.41 comment for me and also this one he put up yesterday :

    This is a snippet from an Independent article, and mirrors my own views in terms of knowing how Wenger thinks.

    All the pundits believe that the ‘top 3′ [other than Arsena] will be reinforcing their squads this summer, and that seems to go quite a way down the league too.

    So, the Chavs who are 16 points ahead, having already won the league, are going to add other top players, but Arsenal who are hoping to make second place don’t think it is necessary to do so, because our squad is good enough.

    We always seem to hear that from AW.

    —- “The summer will be important at the Emirates as Wenger builds his team for next season, but any fans hoping for wholesale changes may be disappointed.

    “We are not in the need of absolute change,” Wenger said. “We have a strong squad, we have some strong young players behind. It is difficult to say at the moment. We are not close to signing anybody. We have a very big squad, so we need to lose some players as well.”

    Wenger is often predisposed to trusting his existing players rather than seeking to upgrade them, but he suggested in the winter that he felt differently. He says now that 2015’s burst in form has prompted “massive changes” [not in personnel] but in how he assessed his [current] squad, the implication being that players have proved him wrong and will now not need to be replaced.”

    Ho Hum. To me that smacks of fighting for a top 4 place in the Premiership, again, rather than contending for the title, because Manure, Chelsea, City, Pool and the Spuds will all be adding to their squads.

    But I’m used to it – and Stan will be pleased.”

    My reservations I believe mirror yours Micky. The problem is that while we are on a good run the perceived validity of these opinions tend to be like trying to roll up a hill. I shall not say too much because there is most likely a post in there to analyse it further (will try to get it to you Duke Rasp and Dame Peaches…promise).

  29. GoonerB says:

    NB 12.44, hahaha “What did the Romans ever do for us?”


    Nice Micky

    I was impressed with the speed of our game. Back in the eighties I purchased some speed from local dealer Stinky Steve. Ended up walking all the way from Leicester Square to Bounds Green in five minutes. You know that walking competition in the Olympics Micky? The one were they walk like they have had an unfortunate accident in a public toilet? I invented it.

    Very impressed with Ramsey. That guys all round game just keeps getting better and better.

    The Ghosts of the Thirties are Stirring.

  31. RA says:

    Hi GoonerB,

    In response to your comment regarding rolling the validity of comments up a hill, (?? What) have you ever heard of a guy from Greek Mythology called King Sisyphus?

    Well this guy Sisyphus as related in the story by Sophocles, was a bit naughty lying and bumping people off, and the gods, led by Zeus, decided to punish him for it, and sentenced him to push a massive boulder or gigantic rock up to the top of a hill, only for it to roll all the way back down to the bottom, and this repeated itself for eternity.

    I do not have a clue what you meant by ‘these opinions’ and their ‘validity’ but if you keep your Post close to Sophocles’s story you will not go far wrong and will have Greek mythology to give your view validity itself. 🙂

  32. GunnerN5 says:

    A fantastic banner from Rasp and a fine pre match from Micky. The site certainly has the “feeling good” about it this morning it’s wonderful seeing the old clips of us mashing the spuds. You can see how much it meant to the players by the looks on their faces.

    I’m in the pro Giroud corner, just like Ozil a great deal of his off ball play does not get the credit it deserves. Yesterday he was pulling defenders all over the place to open up room for us to get scoring opportunities – and at least one of our goals was scored through the gap he had created.

    I’m in the process of writing a non football related post based on my trips into Northern Ontario – if there is an interest I will write more.

  33. GunnerN5 says:

    RA your comment about Sisyphus reminded me of a joke……


    Two good old boys, Mick and Paddy, have been promoted from privates to Lance Corporals.

    Not long afterward, they’re out for a walk and Mick says, “Hey, Paddy, there’s the NCO Club; let’s you and me step in.”

    “But we’re only privates,” protests Paddy.
    “We’re Lance Corporals now,” says Mick, pointing to his stripe and pulling him inside. “Now, Paddy, I’m a-gonna sit down and have me a drink.”

    “But we’re privates,” says Paddy.”You blind, boy?” asks Mick, pointing again at his stripe. “We’re Lance Corporals now!”

    So they have their drink, and pretty soon one of the Army lasses comes up to Mick.”You’re cute,” she says, “and I’d like to date you, but I’ve got a bad case of Gonorrhea.”

    Mick pulls his friend to the side and whispers, “Paddy, go look in the dictionary and see what Gonorrhea means. If it’s okay, give me the okay sign.”

    So Paddy goes to look it up, comes back, and gives Mick the big thumbs up. Three weeks later Mick is laid up in the infirmary with a terrible case of Gonorrhea.

    Mick says to Paddy, “Why the hell did you give me the thumbs up?”

    “Well Mick, in the dictionary, it says Gonorrhea affects only the privates and we’re Lance Corporals now.”

  34. GoonerB says:

    A boulder as punishment was it RA? I thought the gods gave him a nasty condition and rash in the nether regions for eternity as punishment, hence the name. Are you sure you have got the right guy RA?

  35. Peaches/Rasp post sent to arsenalnuts.

  36. Funny lot them old Greeks, another one, Prometheus had his liver eaten everyday by an eagle, only for it to regenerate overnight. Apparently he was immortal, a bit like Terry. 😀

  37. RA says:

    Oh, you giant ignoramus, GoonerB – getting – a – smack.

    As a suitable punishment, fit for an ex-wormer, I hereby sentence you to read ‘The Frogs’

    This tells the story of the effeminate god, Dionysus, who, despairing of the state of Athens’ comedians sets out find what kind of jokes are suitable for use in a play.

    To find a reliable path to Hades, Dionysus sought advice from his half-brother Heracles, who knew the way as he had been there before in order to retrieve the hell hound Cerberus.

    That cannot be bad – frog and a hell-hound – right up your alley, so to speak! 🙂

    That’ll teach you not to mock good ol’ King Sis.

  38. RA says:

    Hi ya, GN5, 🙂

    In answer to your earlier question – I vote for the stories about your trips to Northern Ontario to be produced on AA.

    Secondly any connection to my comment to GoonerB, about The Frogs and the search for decent jokes had no connection to the Paddy and Mick misunderstanding promulgated by your goodself 🙂

  39. GunnerN5 says:

    RA – It was just a play on the word Sisyphus / Syphilis………….

  40. RA says:


    Not sure about Terry and the mythological regenerating liver – that would be better suited to Norther and his imbibing of copious drafts of wine. 🙂

  41. RA says:

    I know, GN5 — he is a silly boy — don’t encourage him! 🙂

  42. mickydidit89 says:

    Yes yes yes

  43. GunnerN5 says:

    My Father in Law used to run a sporting goods store with Jimmy Greaves in the 70’s – they would close the store and go to lunch at the pub and not return until the next morning – they were both total alcoholics.

    Needless to say the store went bankrupt.

  44. mickydidit89 says:

    Wayne’s Mother married her Brother


    Tremendous wig though. Ime sure ive seen Waynekerr in Turnpike Lane public toilets. It was probably because of him the place was shut down.

  46. chas says:

  47. RA says:

    It’s no good, Chas, this is prejudice against Eddie miliband!

    Where is there any mention of the ‘Working people’?

    He has been on the 6 O’Clock News and mentioned ‘working people’ 5 times in one breath – yet none in the song — no fair. 🙂

  48. RA says:

    I suspect it is a skill taught only in Norfolk, and that might explain why Exile is never around at the same time as Norfolk Gooner – Superman/Clark Kent. 🙂

    And Exile/Norfolk are only around one at a time – cunning you see.

    OK. that’s possibly true but does nothing to reinforce the original contention – Doh!

    Anyway — far, far worse – Exile is never around when I want to ask him something. 😦

  49. Eddie says:

    not very feminine post, but hey, it is a post, thank you DidIt.

    Santi is not a problem, whatever the context darling. He is the cat’s whiskers. Ozil had such a good game too and you are right you could see the boys had great time. Me thinks they are really clicking on nicely, a proper team of mates. It must have taken some male bonding in the 1st part of the season. We paid the price, but boy was is worth it!

    Walcott is a Gonner, guaranteed. The question remains – where is he going? must be abroad, he would never do a dirty trick on us and join the opposition. Say what you want but Theo is a gent

    thank you once again Mr didit

  50. Gööner In Exile says:

    Ok ok ok Ollie wasn’t in the game last night, except he was fighting three centre backs most of the game, and as such his run left a gaping hole for Sanchez to go into adding is occupation of two centre backs allowing Rambo to pull Santis pass out of the air.

    Fact is Hulls midfield was cumbersome and Ozil was pulling the strings whilst Sanchez and Rambo made runs between the lines all ably assisted by Santi. Hull’s shape played into our hands last night. As it meant our wide me had space in behind full backs and running from outside in they were untracked.

  51. Gööner In Exile says:

    By the way nice report Mr DidIt.

  52. RA says:

    Exile are you still there or have you buggered off again? 🙂

  53. Eddie says:

    an outsider asked me why Gunners love useless Ollie so much, some people just have not got a clue

  54. Gööner In Exile says:

    I’m watching the footy RA………I’m still recovering from fact Martin Atkinson has been given a CL semi final…..oh dear

  55. RA says:


    In betwixt goals 🙂 a swift yea or nay on my question would be ace (or even after the game).

    Having set up keychain last year after you told me it was easy to set up, it came to me some months ago – and I kept forgetting to ask you – is it not true that the whole key to the system – no pun intended – is the initial computer log in?

    So if the log-in password is really complicated you would need to write it down somewhere (self defeating) — or in order to remember it you would have to make it easier (also self defeating).

    What say you, Sir? 😉

  56. RA says:

    To tell the truth, Exile, the guy who owns the machine (I only share) is not pleased with me as I convinced him to use Keychain for all his administrator stuff, when he wanted to buy a propriety password app.

    Having revealed my reservations, he now thinks I am a pillock. Well he may always have thought I was a pillock! 🙂

  57. Eddie says:

    right guys, I need help on this. Supposedly, I didn’t hear it, someone claimed on TalkShite radio today that:
    1 Arsenal spend more on wages than Chelsea
    2 Arsenal youth is doing poorly by comparison to young chavs
    3 Buying and selling players Arsenal spent more than Chavs

    I can hardly believe someone said that, it is probably some silly wind up

  58. RA says:


    1) Arsenal DO have one of the highest salary costs.

    2) Arsenal U21s are in Division 2 and are 5th in that league.
    The U18s are at the bottom of their league.
    The Chelsea youth team are superb and have won the Youth competitions for 4 out of the last 6 years.

    3) Chelsea have sold people like Luis for £50m and Lukaku for £30m, and other smaller fees, and reinvested it with some extra cash.

    I wrote this on AA not long ago – you sure it wasn’t me who told you – because it is basically true. 🙂

  59. Eddie says:

    thank you RA
    Shit, that is not good
    Help me to manipulate this info to defend us……

  60. RA says:

    Oh, and they sold Mata for £35m too. All since Maureen took over,

    Chelsea probably sold something like £130m + when you add in Ba, Torres and Uncle Tom Cobley. 🙂

  61. chas says:

    The players Chelsea sold for astronomical amounts to enable them to ‘balance their books’ were bought with Abramovich’s billions before FFP began to bite (as were the 20 odd players they still have out on loan who they’ll also use for future capital)

    We’re still fourth on wages and it’s rumoured we include more staff than any of the other clubs (i.e non-playing staff).

  62. Gööner In Exile says:

    RA, I believe you are correct re keychain for the system, ie the one that remembers passwords for mail accounts in the mail app and other system applications, the keychain that stays in sync across iCloud is tied to the iCloud password.

    Couple of things worth noting:

    1) writing down passwords is not recommended by any IT company however it is probably the safest way to store passwords. Passwords are normally stolen electronically (via malware), if someone breaks in to your home to steal your computer it is unlikely they will take the notebook in the top drawer, they are unsophisticated thieves so only look at value per item.

    2) to be secure a password does not have to be difficult to remember. Most websites ask for 8 characters and 1 must be a number and one a capital. A code breaker could see the number of characters and break most of these passwords in minutes. As it’s easy to look at all 8 letter words in the dictionary and try all. Worse still these are difficult to remember because most humans can’t remember where they put the number or whether there was a a number etc etc. The easiest and safest passwords to remember are made up of three words. For example if your hobby was horse riding, your favourite place was Scotland and wine was Malbec you could have a password HorseScotlandMalbec says that password would take 3 quadrillion years to break whereas Scotland1 will take 15 hours worse Scotland will take zero time go one further and put a 1 after each word so Horse1Scotland1Malbec1 it would take 21 sextillion years.

    Now the only danger is using the same password on all websites and one of them gets hacked and the password is published on 4chan or such like, that password could be used to access all websites with your email address. And this is where keychain comes into its own. Your system password and iCloud password can be the format shown above, you can then use random passwords on all the websites you use but you won’t have to remember them as keychain will, and if one of those websites gets hacked you’ll only be exposed on one website.

  63. Eddie says:

    using polish words is the safest thing in England, for now at least. vote UKIP

  64. Gööner In Exile says:

    Eddie sorry I should have given you some info for your debates with Chavs.

    1) Whenever Arsenal have a higher published wage figure than Chavs it is because it is based on last known information, our accounts are one of the first out every season. As Chas says our wages also include a lot of other staff, the accounts of other clubs canbe tricky in this respect, City for arguments sake have a few subsidiaries they have one that is for commercial staff, UEFA are actually looking at that to see if those companies which from memory make losses should be included in the FFP calculations.

    2) yes Chavs youth team is very good, mainly because as RA says they spend money to acquire the best talent from around Europe, these players are loaned out and sold which helps them balance the books for FFP, how many products of the Chelsea youth team actually make the grade? The last Chelsea born and raised player to make it was John Terry. The spending on these players (I think when they are 18 or under) is not counted in FFP calculations so they can use Romans money to acquire these players.

    3) also as RA says in the last two years we have outspent Chavs, because we don’t need to balance the books as much as we used to because we had 8-9 years of austerity, Chavs during that time Chavs were spending ridiculous amounts of money.

  65. mickydidit89 says:


    Re “Help me to manipulate this info to defend us……”, and your Chav mate issue

    I think I’d take a slightly more scientific approach “rich or poor, once a tosser, always a tosser. Now sod off you fat skinhead”

  69. Big Raddy says:

    I have an idea for a quick post. Unfortunately it is time sensitive so we will have to delay the publishing of NG’s masterwork.

    Is that OK with everyone (or at least those who read the blog before 9.30)?

    Definitely, BR.

    Go for it Raddy

  73. Eddie says:

    thank you GiE! Not the answer I was hoping for, but half expecting. I was right about spending big and the wages, but am surprised that our academy is not the best in the country. why not?

    Micky – he is not a Chav, just an Arsenal hater, more so after we walloped them in April 4:1 and he had to pay I think £300 for the pleasure to watch from the Clock End 🙂 🙂 Best birthday present Eddie could hope for

  74. Eddie says:

    when is the election day, I thought it was tomorrow rather than today

    Oh wait, perhaps our mystic chum has woven them together into a sordid tale of deceit, dishonesty and sexual depravity

    Exile from earlier, 🙂

    Thanx for the keychain update.

    That detailed explanation pretty much confirms my own view, and I cannot think of a way around the Gordian Knot of the Log-in password – as the computer is not mine, I cannot play around with the settings as I am not the administrator — anyway, following your advice I, like 90% of all other AAers, will now use the difficult to crack password ‘Horse1Scotland1Malbec1’ — oops. 😀

    And your explanation for Eddie was first class — I can now type without looking at the keyboard, but I was watching the game too – but had to keep my comment brief.
    — I enjoyed the game – and the dodgy Tevez penalty makes the second leg more interesting.
    [It seems I am the only one who was rude about the penalty – my inebriated friends – back from the pub – all said it was a cast iron pen. I think Tevez played for it – and in my mind that is simply cheating.]

    On the other matter – you are quite right – Chelsea were able to ‘cash in’ on previous big purchases and use the transfer cash to buy new players.
    Luiz, Lukaku, Mata, Torres, Ba not only freed up transfer cash, their salaries went towards paying the new guys too.

    Bollix to the Chavs.

    Morning Starshine, 🙂

    Chas, I think time sensitive to Big ‘Un means he has to go for a pee, and that will have kept the Post short.

  79. chas says:

    I enjoyed the game, too, RA.
    That new Juventus stadium is the dog’s swingers (can’t remember where I’ve heard that phrase before 🙂 ).

    I thought it was a certain pen as well.
    Then again, I was rooting for Juve, so that’s not surprising. 🙂

    Hang on a mo, I thought Miliband was Jewish. He can’t go around enjoying delicious bacon sarnies

    Maybe there’s something else he could carve in stone 🙂

  81. RA says:


    Go for broke and get your Post out.

    Of course you realise that Norfolk will twig there is a campaign to prevent his Post ever appearing. First Rasper wickedly deleted it, and after much laborious typing, his latest massive missive has been usurped by a Johnny-Come-Lately time sensitive usurper.

    Fear not – Norfolk is from turkey country, has broad shoulders and he can take it — which is basically what Rasp said! 😀

  82. mickydidit89 says:

    That has to be dogs’ swingers surely
    The swingers belong to the furry fellow after all
    I’ll never get the hang of English 😦

  83. chas says:

  84. chas says:

    I assumed it was the swingers of only one dog.
    I stand corrected.

    Being a piss poor minimum wage part time van driver……. the only party that has pricked my ears up is The Labour Party with their manifesto pledge to increase the minimum wage to £8 per hour by the end of their next term ( if they win ! ) !…………….£8 per hour !!!…….I bet the rich bastards on here were last earning £8 per hour as pocket money when they were little spoilt brats !. hahaha

  86. Gööner In Exile says:

    Why odour academy not the best in the country?

    Because Southamptons is.

    In seriousness it depends how you judge the academy.

    Does a successful academy win stuff? Or is it there to produce players for the first team?

    I’d say the latter.

    Also are we judging the academy on players developed from 6-18 or those developed from 18 – 21?

    If so which players are we judging? Those developed and scouted and those bought from round the globe?

  87. mickydidit89 says:

    graham pigmonster 🙂

  88. RA says:


    The thought did strike me that the Emirates is a beautiful looking stadium, but is somehow not as dynamic as the Juventus Stadium (Arena??) as the Italian crowds seem to be on top of the pitch – the noise and the excitement are palpable, and there is no room for polite clapping from the prawn sandwich brigade. 🙂

  89. chas says:

    Terry was telling us you are a wealthy civil engineer and part-time wig manufacturer and not an award-winning pie salesman at all.

  90. chas says:

    Yep, RA – not a corporate noose in sight.

  91. The Cockie Monster says:

    Rugs “R” Us…..does help a little with the finances, chas !. 😀

  92. The Cockie Monster says:

    Odour Academy ?…………………smells nice !.

  93. chas says:


  94. mickydidit89 says:

    Ah Chas, I may have finally cracked it. The little sign goes after the s only when its genitive AND plural

    Swingers of dog little sign before s
    Swingers of dogs little sign after s

  95. chas says:

    Talking of wigs…..

  96. RA says:


    There is also the Chavs route. They had to come in line with FFP, and set out to buy the best kids they could to stock their academies.

    They bought Curtois as a kid for £6m (?) and loaned him out. If they had to buy him now on the open market he would have cost £20m – £30m possibly.

    They bought Lukaku for £17m (?) and sold him on for £30m (?)

    It is like a supermarket policy.

    I have only seen their kids when they slaughtered the Arsenal youth in the FA cups, or murdered Manure and Citeh academy teams.

    I hate to admit it, but they have some seriously good kids, and will soon let them loose – either to cash in, or let them into the first team squad.

  97. chas says:

  98. RA says:

    So, Micky,

    What if it is;

    ‘The hairs of Caesars the dogs swingers ……’

  99. The Cockie Monster says:

    So basically the loop hole of FFP is that City and Chavs can spend as much as they like on the best young players in the world and sell them on for profits to finance the buying of quality established players for the first team and not only that , but they can ( as in the case of Lumpard ) buy big money players through their owners other clubs and have them loaned to them !……………………….Two loopholes that need to be closed !……………………Bastards !.

  100. Eddie says:

    chanteur de douche 🙂 🙂 yep, I’ve heard those tunes from under water 🙂

    GiE – do you mean chavs best academy is for over 18s and ours for under 18s?

  101. mickydidit89 says:

    Land, stables, horses, on a part time min wage. Yeah right.
    That’s it. I’m voting Tory ha ha indeed 🙂

    Oh no wait, Chas’ll make me go and suppot Totnum. Mmm, thinks…

  102. Eddie says:

    chas – if I email you a funny video will you publish it here?

    Also – are there any bankers (not bonkers) here? I need some advice about a bank that has forced me to take mortgage with them

  103. RA says:


    Only if you think Arsenal’s U18s position at the bottom of their league is better than all those above them.

    Actually we have some good kids too – and the age of the players in the respective teams has an impact too – but Arsenal seem to ignore results and concentrate on giving them experience.

    I prefer the Chavs method, because winning becomes addictive and the sooner they start the better.

  104. chas says:

    If I can, I will.

    Sorry, Micky and anyone else I’ve offended re: the election (apart from Chary, of course).

    My old man was a Tory and I just can’t stand them. (I don’t like new feckin Labour either). I blame Thatcher.

  105. The Cockie Monster says:

    I think Terry will be locked away on Election day !……it`s the consequences of his UKIP EXTREME Party…..his manifesto of shagging all fit foreigners has given him a general erection !…………………….Vote Transplant !.

  106. RA says:

    And don’t forget Micky, that Cockie blighter has a three storey love shack on the south side of his estate, and he had the devil of a job putting in the new road to access it.

  107. Big Raddy says:

    Not giving a monkeys cuss about politics but choosing to vote because it seems important, I decided to try and find out what is the difference between the party policies.

    It is impossible. Nowhere can I find an unbiased account.

    Furthermore, has there ever been a winner who carried out their election promises?

  108. Big Raddy says:

    Really enjoyed writing today’s post. Had me smiling all the while.

    Our agreed publish time is 09.30 GMT but perhaps I will publish early and get on with my day.

    What do you think?

  109. chas says:

    I’d vote for these if they were standing in my constituency.

  110. Big Raddy says:

    RA. 8.30. Is the dog called Caesars? Seems implausible 🙂

  111. chas says:

    The hair’s of Caesars’ the dogs’ swinger’s

    Any good

  112. Eddie says:

    no, sorry Chas, it is 160Mb!! never mind, unless you can to a lecture on publishing vids again 🙂

    RA – thank you, but I know you don’t mean it

  113. The Cockie Monster says:

    It`s doable, Micky !…….Land, Stables, Horses on min` wage !………just cut out the Drugs, Tabaco, Booze, Loose women , Waitrose, convert to Buddhism and have sex with a former self !.

  114. chas says:

    I think you can upload a vid of that size to Vimeo for free.

  115. RA says:


    Politicians have always appalled me – wherever they are.

    I can be an interested observer here and I am still amazed at the whole process.

    Both main parties are ‘run’ by multi-millionaires, often from the same ‘blue-chip’ schools who have never worked a day in their lives – yet insist on referring to the ‘working man’ as if they have a clue what that means.

    Then on the radio yesterday i heard people being asked why they were going to vote for a party – and unbelievably several said the NHS was important to them (rightly so) and would vote Labour because Miliband had said he would pump £8bn into it if elected.

    When told it was Cameron who had promised to inject £8bn and Miliband only £2.5bn into the NHS it was…..’oh, that can’t be right’.

    Others made similar mistakes about other parties – but that sticks in my mind.

    There is too much waffle and lying by all politicians concerned.

    To give my opinion — and that is not worth a lot — both main parties are much the same. Self serving politicians the lot of them.

  116. mickydidit89 says:

    That was so unfair. Way too hard
    I’m shit at English and I know it

  117. chas says:

    Sorry, should have been –
    Any good?

  118. chas says:

    Or should that have been –
    ‘should of been’ ?

  119. mickydidit89 says:

    Convert to Buddhism eh?
    The others are doable 🙂

  120. chas says:

    Sorry, BR, your question has been lost in the midst some trite garbage.

    My vote is ‘get it up now’, as Mrs BR would say. 🙂

  121. chas says:

    Hendon Wood

  122. ‘morning all,

    Rasp, my post is not time sensitive, go with Raddy’s.

  123. chas says:

    Or should that be –
    Hendon would?

  124. The Cockie Monster says:

    I reckon you lot would get more sense out of a government if you voted for me as leader of The Cockie Monster Raving Loony Party !………………………..Politicians are all a bunch of lying enormous pricks !……… expect a well hung parliament !.

  125. chas says:

    Don’t Buddhists believe you’re reincarnated as an animal?
    Not that that would stop you putting the last part of your manifesto into action. 🙂

  126. chas says:


    hahaha true Cornwall. But the only time half those nonces would get a manifesto is when the 16 year old work experience boy bends over to make a photo copy

  128. chas says:

  129. chas says:

  130. Madeline was in the fertilised egg business. She had several hundred young ‘pullets’ and ten roosters to fertilise the eggs.
    > She kept records and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.
    > This took a lot of time, so she bought some tiny bells and attached them to her roosters.
    > Each bell had a different tone, so she could tell from a distance which rooster was performing.
    > Now, she could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.
    > Madeline’s favourite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen: but, this morning she noticed old Butch’s bell hadn’t rung at all!
    > When she went to investigate, she saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.
    > To Madeline’s amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn’t ring.
    > He’d sneak up on a pullet, do his job, and walk on to the next one.
    > Madeline was so proud of old Butch, she entered him in the Dowerin show and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.
    > The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the “No Bell
    > Peace Prize”: they also awarded him the “Pulletsurprise” as well.
    > Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making. Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren’t paying attention?
    > Vote carefully in the next election. You can’t always hear the bells.

  131. Eddie says:

    I want to come back as one of my dogs

  132. The Cockie Monster says:

    Hahaha Yes ! ….when a politician puts his manifesto into action, it`s time to lock yourself in the polling booth cross your fingers and hope it`s not too painful in putting an X in the right box !

  133. The Cockie Monster says:

    I want to come back as a lesbian cat !.

  134. RA says:

    That had me laughing — a dead cat wedged behind a wood beam being beaten up by a drunken cat looking for sex who then fell down into the garden shredder. 🙂

  135. The Cockie Monster says:

    I like that one, Norfolk, humour with truth. 🙂

  139. chas says:

    9.30 cat = majestic

  140. Morning all

    Can I publish?

  141. chas says:

    Those are exactly like the shorts Eddie was wearing when I saw her wearing her DMs

  142. New Post everyone ………………………

  143. chas says:
