Ban the Banner and the Banner … Or Not? ….. Your Vote Counts

This is just my opinion ……

The gloss was taken off yesterday’s excellent victory for me by the decision of one/some of our away supporters to hold up a banner at the end of the game which called for Arsene Wenger to resign.

I was particularly sad for our players who were making their way over to celebrate with the fans when the banner was raised and then had no alternative but to turn around and walk away dejectedly for fear that the Press would have a field day …. you can see the headlines …”Arsenal players celebrate in front of Arsene Out banner”

No one is going to complain about a banner that is positive in its message, but do we have a right to display negativity in such a public way?

Of course freedom of speech says we do, so let’s qualify the question a bit in this poll.

You can tick multiple answers if you choose.

    The thing with he banner is that it’s premeditated, so the fans have already decided they want Wenger out before any balls have been kicked, and have probably thought that for a long time now. So the fact we won 4-0, to them, is pretty irrelevant. However, if you’ve just watched your team win 4-0, then surely the sensible thing to do is put away for another day, or even display it before the match and then get behind your team for 90 minutes.

    During the match I was saying I think we can do better than Theo, the fact he scored twice isn’t going to change my mind! But here’s the thing, I will still support him while he’s an Arsenal player and deep down I’m hoping that he can prove me wrong and start banging in 30 goals a season. If he does, I will happily put my hands up and say I was wrong. The issue I have with some Arsenal fans at the moment is they walk around with this pure dislike of Wenger which they will openly admit he has no chance of coming back from. For example, I looked at the Twitter discussion between the clown who put up the banner and Ian Wright, and there was a guy who said ‘don’t care if Wenger does the treble this season, he still has to go’! Where’s the logic in that, and how is that being an Arsenal supporter? If that is your agenda, then you have stopped becoming a fan of Arsenal and are now a hater of Wenger.

    I had a discussion with the person who made the banner on twitter once. He was going on about George Graham and how good it all was then but he’s only in his early 20s. I don’t think there is anything positive about the banner even for the cause they are trying to promote. They just look spoilt and entitled.

  4. LB says:

    He’s in his 20s and is going on about how good it was with George Graham. Now that is scary.

    I have been trying to think of a way to describe how dull things got towards the end and I think it can be best described in two words — Eddie McGoldrick.

  5. GoonerB says:

    Thanks Rasp.

    That was particularly idiotic after a 4-0 away win that takes us to the F.A cup quarter final. Lets hope it doesn’t leave players feeling a bit dejected and then hamper performances. It only takes a bit of marginal sub-conscious demotivation to take 5-10% off our performance levels so I hope those idiots will be happy if they are complicit in achieving this.

    They will probably tout that they love the club as much as any other fan, and maybe so, but that can only lead to the conclusion that they are thick if they think that was the right time to do something like that.

    I have been less than impressed with how much of this season has gone myself, but while we are in contention get behind the team and manager and help push them on, otherwise are you really a true fan if you are prepared to create a negative atmosphere in front of the players who we are still hoping can go on to win us the title.

    Fans need to have a way to voice their displeasure in some way I guess and Arsenal as a club don’t really give the impression of appear to listening to the fans but there is a way to do it and more importantly a right time to do it.

    Absolute thicko’s. Hope one comes on here so I can tell him to his face that he has the IQ of a lobotomised earthworm.

  6. LB says:

    By the way, I voted for none of the above. I would have voted for the idea that there is a time and a place for everything and last night was neither the time not the place for such a banner.

  7. GoonerB says:

    Ditto LB

  8. fatgingergooner says:

    If their level of respect is telling Ian Wright to f**k off, then why should we expect anything different towards Wenger?

    Btw, I’m 31 and all I remember of George Graham is winning a Cup Winners Cup final and having a midfield pair of John Jensen and Stefan Schwarz! Give me Wenger any day.

  9. chas says:

  10. chas says:

    The above was after the ‘Wenger blames fans’ articles that appeared on Sunday.

    Below is the same chap who was told his banner was ‘muggy’ by Wrighty.

  11. chas says:

    Rasp
    Sorry, I’m not keen on your poll options.
    The banner supporters will win the poll as the anti-banner group vote is split three ways.

    But thanks for putting something together nonetheless. 🙂

  12. chas says:

    Or maybe I’m just too simple to understand the nuances of the freedom of speech debate, 🙂

  13. Rasp says:

    No problem Chas, I literally wrote it over a cup of tea. I dislike the fact that the banner holders in some way will be viewed as representing me as an Arsenal supporter, but I also believe in the old adage. – although I disagree with what you’re saying I would fight to for your right to say it

  14. fatgingergooner says:

    I voted none of the above because I can see pros and cons for all.

    I think we are going to see a lot more banners at Arsenal games, both for and against Wenger. Depending on results we might see a lot more arguments breaking out aswell.

  15. chas says:

    Rasp
    So this was a lie, then? 😆

    “I’d love to have seen chas and ant go over and rip it out of their hands”

  16. LB says:

    I’d vote for that.

  17. Rasp says:

    😆 chas, I was thinking of more life defining causes than football with that analogy …. I’d have been happy if you’d ripped the banner out of his hands and then accidentally kneed him in the family jewels 🙂

  18. chas says:

    We were in row X which was three quarters of the way up and had no idea the banner had been displayed until we read your comment on here when we got back to the car.
    I’m not looking forward to it going up somewhere near me at an away ground.

    What must the supporters who have it dangled in front of them think?
    What about the poor fans who are photographed by the media alongside the banner when they disagree with it being displayed?

    I’d be interested to know what individuals would do in those circumstances. Anyone?

  19. Red Arnie says:

    hmmm. Freedom of expression. Yes. But every freedom comes with some responsibility. The halfwits do not bear the responsibility of being a supporter, even more, a supporter in an away game when the team needs them to really fight and become the 12th man.

    No matter what the poll says. This is shameful!

  20. Rasp says:

    Message to anyone who reads but doesn’t comment.

    Wind your neck in and try to understand this if you can ….

    There is a huge difference between standards and double standards.

    Standards are what decent people uphold in order to live their lives well and harmoniously with others.

    None of us have the right to attack somenone else or someone else’s beliefs without just cause because in doing so you deny them their rights ……

  21. GunnerN5 says:

    Come on – wake up to yourself Rasp.

    The worst form of double standards is the delete button – which is used with impunity right here on AA.

    But I guess nobody will get to read this – will they?

  22. Rasp says:

    That’s patent nonsense GN5.

    Comments by you or anyone else that come up on this site that are unnecessarily offensive to others will be deleted ….and do you know why? …. it’s because we have the right to run this blog in any way we choose.

    Take your pick of any number of sites that welcome that sort of behaviour, but if you want to come on here … behave.

  23. Hector says:

    Fans are entitled to show banners critical of the club but I agree with some comments above, there is a time and a place for them, not when we’re in with a chance of the cup and the league. It’s a disgrace.

    It disgusts me the way it was unfurled last night after a 4-0 win and just brings unnecessary negativity towards the club when we’re looking to find any momentum we can for the run in.

    Was at WBA away a couple of years back and the same dickhead and his cronies did the same thing. After an away win in Europe followed up by a 1-0 win away they unfurled it. Absolute jokers. Was sitting a few rows back and couldn’t get near them and the banner but I wanted to rip it it down. I don’t want to be associated with those entitled wankers but ended up being in the pictures in the papers and the TV looking like I was part of it.

  24. Rasp says:

    Great Comment Hector, I couldn’t agree more.

  25. GunnerN5 says:

    Oh dear the school master has spoken – I’d best go in the corner with my head bowed.

    My crime = expressing a popular opinion.

  26. Hector says:

    Glen are you lost?

  27. fatgingergooner says:

    Great news for away fans. £30 cap on tickets for next 3 seasons. Rightly so with all the money coming in.

    Does that mean the fans have more money for banners though! 😬

  28. TotalArsenal says:

    Good one, Rasper 🙂

    Every society has at least 1-3% of idiots, so these things are likely to happen now and again. A silly banner like that is an insult to Wenger’s intellect and is utterly meaningless. We should all give it a French shrug.

  29. Rasp says:

    Hi Total, i’m sure you are right. It was the players more than anything that I felt sorry for. They must’ve been lifted by the result, but were denied the opportunity to celebrate with the supporters because of the actions just a couple of individuals

  30. fatgingergooner says:

    Problem is we are talking about a banner instead of a great result and a good performance, espescially from some youngsters and new comers like Iwobi and Elneny who are not getting the praise they deserve. I appreciate on here that might be because nobody did a match report, but all the papers and press coverage is about a bloody banner.

  31. fatgingergooner says:

    Eboue back in the PL with Sunderland. Hope he plays when we meet them.

    Walcott has come out and said the players had a meeting about their recent form before the Spurs game. Hopefully we can win our next 2 games and come back from international duty and have a real good go doing at the double. Our last 2 performances have definitely been improved.

  32. fatgingergooner says:

    I also see Sanogo caused a stir last night. Straight red for a pretty bad elbow straight to someone’s jaw! Is that the sort of fight we want to see more of from our players!? 😄

  33. GoonerB says:

    FGG, sorry to have to raise this subject again but I am just picking up on your earlier comment about Theo, and I am not being personal to you here as I think that there is a cnsitent view in what you stated. I know most people role their eyes at the mention of this subject, particularly where I am concerned but I have one simple request.

    My request is can we please stop confusing the analysis of wingers as strikers and vice versa. If we want to analyse Theo as a striker analyse him on the games he actually played as a striker. When he is being played on the wing analyse him as a winger in comparison to his peers in this position.

    There are very few wingers that score really heavily (Ronaldo and Messi are an exception) and when they do it is normally because the team is set up in a way to accommodate them to do so, because they are a special talent.

    My point being that by and large you can’t expect most wingers to get near the 30 goal a season mark. A player who is first choice striker consistently in a season is a different consideration however, and goals will be a huge part of how they are judged.

    Shearer, Owen, Van Nistelrooy e.t.c, e.t.c, would never score near 30 goals a season on the wing, and you wouldn’t assess them as such if they were being played as a winger. I don’t know why Theo seems to be so often assessed as a striker in direct comparison to our strikers and and other strikers when he is patently not given the strikers role.

    Personally I think Theo is a dangerous player quite often through a season but not consistently at present. This may be down to the role the manager plays him in, or maybe not. As a winger he has certain attributes that lend themselves to him being decent there but he lacks other attributes to make him a top winger on a consistent basis IMO. I personally feel his weaknesses are less exploited and his strengths more enhanced as the through the middle striker.

    As such I see Theo as a striker option in our squad. Not necessarily as a first choice (although I would personally still see him ahead of Giroud).

    Just to note this is not a bigging up of Theo comment because I, as many others have, noted his recent performances leaving something to be desired. This is just a request that the analysis is more accurate.

  34. bizz11 says:

    Any1 who truley likes arsenal wants wenger to go ,because there is no difference him being there or any new manager

  35. fatgingergooner says:

    GB,

    My comment about Theo scoring 30 goals a season was a throw away remark just made to show that if he was scoring regularly and playing well then I’m happy to have him. My analysis of him yesterday during the game was based purely on him being on the wing, where I feel we can do better and have better already in the squad. I also feel we can do better than him as a striker aswell, just to clear that up! 😄

    I’ve just seen that Arsenal are going above and beyond the £30 away ticket and are actually going to be charging £26. Great move from the club to help our away fans.

  36. Red Arnie says:

    well, of course FGG. 🙂 No one is keen to talk about El Nino or Iwobi! They did not cost 70m, so they must be numpties, right! 😛

    70m or more in the bank, and we play nobodies in our team. hmmm.

  37. TotalArsenal says:

    Hey Rasp 🤓

    Yes the players appeared shocked by it. I wish they would have ignored it and focus on the 97%+ who had a good night and sang their hearts out. I will be at the Everton game and am pretty sure there will be no banner on display then.

  38. RockyLives says:

    I suspect there will be punch ups at the ground again (or at an away ground) when that banner gets raised.

    Thanks for the Poll Rasp – I voted for “should find other ways…”

  39. GoonerB says:

    No problems FGG. I actually agree with you on both counts as well, although I feel he is a decent striker squad option myself. I can’t remember every game he played as striker but it wasn’t actually that many before his injury period.

    Without going back and looking it up specifically I remember West Brom and the F.A cup final at the end of last season and Utd at home and Leicester away this season. All games we played well in and looked much more fluid and quick in attack. I remember one dodgy game which he wasn’t best in, among others, which was Olympiacos at home.

    Since his return from injury he has featured at striker a grand total of zero times in my recollection, and I think my main issue, and why I highlight it, has been with many comparing his stats and performances with strikers during that period, not because I feel he is the best thing since sliced bread.

    What I have found strange is AW’s reluctance to retry it since the new year when the evidence seems to point towards it being a working formula. It is even stranger to me to not try something different again when you consider our performances since the start of the year and how insipid many of our attacking performances have been.

  40. Red Arnie says:

    well, I think what is most important is that our run the FAC goes on. Watford next, and if this goes well, two games to a historic 3rd successive FAC triumph!

    Hull and Watford are hardly prepartions for Nou Camp. But we can only play who we find as apponents. Onwards and upwards! 🙂

  41. kelsey says:

    It’s shameful and as mentioned above it’s a society issue not a football one.

    3000 away fans and perhaps a few idiots whose timing is very questionable especially after an emphatic win after 5 pretty poor results.Unfortunately regardless of the result it gets highlighted which doesn’t do the players or manager any good,especially at this stage of the season.

    By the way Ryan Giggs is taking over at United not Maureen,he isn’t wanted by them.

  42. fatgingergooner says:

    GB,

    Wasn’t he on a run of 13 goals in 15 at one point including the end of last season? I think the reason Theo was used as a CF was because of the fact he was only one in the squad fit who offered something different to Giroud ie pace. The problem for him now is I think Welbeck offers more than just pace and therefore his chances are going to be limited in that role.

  43. LB says:

    Thinking about it I think it is really obvious that the people who raised the banner must have put an awful lot of work into making it or at least their mums did and they were so eager and excited about raising it they just couldn’t stop themselves even though they probably did know that it wasn’t the best time.

  44. LB says:

    Yeah and as Slim has said what is getting lost is that Iwobi and Elneny had really good games.

  45. GoonerB says:

    You are right FGG and truth be known I favour Welbeck. The thing is Welbeck has been injured till very recently, but if we don’t win the EPL this year we look at the period of the 8 weeks following the new year as the time we historically lost the title.

    In that period, when we looked pretty ordinary in attack, he had Walcott as an available option. Why then did he only play Giroud as striker for so many games and didn’t give Walcott another go in the position?

  46. Big Raddy says:

    I voted “other means,” I have no issue with Gooners who have a different opinion to mine; what I object to is being included in the delusion 🙂

    The banner saddened me because our away support is so fervent and noisy. These fools let the AwayBoyz down and deserve to be sent to bed without their supper.

  47. fatgingergooner says:

    GB,

    The games in question at that time where we struggled were Liverpool, Stoke, Chelsea, Southampton and then recently United and Swansea.

    Those are tough fixtures, but if you break them down you can see why Theo wasn’t played up front.

    Liverpool we had no Sanchez and our midfield was Ramsey and Flamini. Giroud had to play upfront otherwise your wingers are Ox and Campbell and I think Giroud is a better option with Theo wide. You can’t play Ramsey wide because we had no midfielders.

    Stoke we had no Özil or Sanchez so again it made sense to play Theo wide and Giroud up front otherwise we have no wingers. I think Iwobi started which says it all.

    Chelsea was Sanchez first game back and we actually subbed Giroud and left Theo up front if I remember once Merts was sent off.

    By the time we play Southampton, United and Swansea Theo is woefully out of form and doesn’t look like a viable option, plus Welbeck is fit again for the last 2 games.

    So in the most part I don’t think it was a case of choosing Giroud over Walcott, it was a case of choosing Giroud over the likes of Ox, Campbell and Iwobi which meant Walcott playing wide.

  48. goonermichael says:

    The people with the banner want their 515 minutes too I imagine.

  49. goonermichael says:

    15 minutes 🙂

  50. Big Raddy says:

    GM. 15 minutes is 14 minutes and 55 seconds too much

  51. mickydidit89 says:

    Afternoon all
    Thanks Rasp. I pushed the button next to “find another means”.
    I don’t find his banner particularly offensive, whereas I do find Mr Marmite highly offensive. Nasty looking little tosser 🙂

    Agree with Slim and LB about Iwobi and Elneny, and I’d add Joel into the mix. I did have a very broken stream, but he played some terrific balls and worked back as well as forwards.

    Really looking forward to Watford game. Hopefully more of the same continued hard work and goals.

  52. mickydidit89 says:

    I don’t really understand the “tarred with the same brush” thinking.

    Anyway, next time it appears, a hearty verse or two of “one Arsene Wenger” should wind Mr Marmite up 🙂

  53. Rasp says:

    Hi Micky, I was considering using your ‘what position’ poll for tomorrow’s post … do you want to come up with a 2 paragraph intro? 🙂

  54. mickydidit89 says:

    Help
    Chas put up a tweet at 11:35. It reads Mr Marmite@DeejayDT
    Is the little shit Marmite or Deejay?

  55. mickydidit89 says:

    Rasp
    I have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. Old git memory is what I have

  56. fatgingergooner says:

    Micky,

    Agreed about Campbell. He looks really comfortable on the ball and sees the passes. He must be a dream for his full back aswell as he works his tail off. Speaking of full backs, Chambers has looked really good when he’s played recently. Hopefully he continues that form at CB in the next few games.

  57. mickydidit89 says:

    FGG
    It’s why I’m not unduly worried about Ramsey injury (sad, yes), as I like the Coq Elneny thing, and Joel is arguably better right than Aaron.

  58. fatgingergooner says:

    Micky,

    I do prefer Ramsey RW to our other options at the moment, but I’m more worried about Wenger putting him back in midfield again as Coq/Elneny is much better like you say, so at least it takes that out of the equation. Campbell is more than capable of covering for a few weeks.

  59. chas says:

    Micky
    I’m not sure what’s confusing you? 🙂
    He is both Mr Marmite and @DeejayDT – that’s how twitter names work.
    e.g.
    Tim Stillman@Stillberto

  60. LB says:

    That is a good point, Ramsey is one of those players that if fit has to play because he is too important to the club; but, as you say, Joel is probably a better option on the right with Coquelin and Elneny in the middle. Should be good.

  61. mickydidit89 says:

    Chas
    It takes very little to confuse me
    Bottom line is, I know what he looks like, but didn’t know how to address him should the opportunity ever arise 🙂

    Should be good. Indeed LB

  62. Eddie says:

    oi gorgeous – away ticket prices are to be capped at £30! more money for beer and pies 🙂

  63. Eddie says:

    no pathetic banners prepared in advance and carried around until the team were losing
    No booing
    No black scarf

    We can say what we want to each other, Gunner to Gunner, but to the outside we should always present a united front.

    Kroenke is not a Gunner, so Kroenke out is accaptable

  64. Big Raddy says:

    Worried that the Chavs will cheat Ibra and PSG tonight. They have a handy habit of finding referees who are committed to the Chelsea cause – we saw it twice against them this season 😦

  65. Eddie says:

    🙂 now you can add at least one more pie and 1 more glass 🙂

    Good to see that fans’ views are not completely ignored

  66. fatgingergooner says:

    Eddie,

    I like the idea of being a united front to the world and dealing with our issues in house. That’s definitely how it should be.

  67. mickydidit89 says:

    A very fine still life there Chas

  68. GoonerB says:

    Ginge, your earlier explanation makes a lot of sense and has swayed me somewhat, but not completely 🙂

    I get his hands have been tied to some degree but I still feel there have been missed opportunities due to Arsene’s personal preference as oppose to completely having no other choice. Still spilled milk and all that.

    What do we want with Chav’s tonight? Has to be whatever keeps them fighting hardest in the EPL as they can still do us a favour there. What is best though?

  69. fatgingergooner says:

    GB,

    I think they will go out, but maybe with a draw or extra time. Them going through would probably be best for momentum but may also make it difficult for them down the line with FA Cup fixtures so that could be good for us too.

  70. chas says:

    Has the world gone mad?

  71. chas says:

    IBRA!!

  72. fatgingergooner says:

    So Chelsea look like they might be without Hazard and Costa for the FA Cup game at Everton. Happy days. Problem is if they go out of that what have they to play for when it comes to playing our title rivals?

  73. chas says:

    Pride in their glorious history?

  74. fatgingergooner says:

    So Ibrahimovic says to Arsene ‘give me 200k a week on a 2 year contract’ bearing in mind he’s 35 in October but has scored 30 goals in his last 31 games for club and country (playing in France).

    What do you think?

    Is he better at 34 than Giroud?

    Ignore how good he’s been, right now, would you take him?

  75. mickydidit89 says:

    Chas, just read the Red Action link
    Can we assume those boycotting will still want the club to look kindly on their applications for Wembley tickets?
    Bloody well hope not

  76. mickydidit89 says:

    Rasp/Peaches

    I’ll do a post for tomorrow (unless of course…. 🙂 )

  77. Red Arnie says:

    weekly pay not more than 10% above anyone else in the team (Alexis, Ozil or Theo, dont know who is highest). Plus transfer fee no more than 45m. In that case, go for Ibra I would say! 😛

  78. fatgingergooner says:

    He’s available on a free I think RA! So would you make an exception with wages based on no transfer fee? Or maybe give him £5m upfront and pay 150k a week?

    Personally I’m not sure I’d have him. 2 years ago maybe, but he’d be nearly 35 and the PL is tough.

  79. GoonerB says:

    Interesting about Ibra. I think he could be a deciding factor still and is easily built for the EPL. He has great skill and vision as well so could move to a number 10 position with the right side. Don’t see Arsene going for it though. Likely to be Utd or Chelsea. Possibly Klopp and Liverpool though.

  80. fatgingergooner says:

    GB,

    He strikes me as the kind of guy who would want to live in London! Having said that I can’t see him at Chelsea because they already have Costa. I’m not sure Liverpool could afford him and does he work hard enough for Klopp? He doesn’t get on with Guardiola. Can’t see Wenger going for it either. I reckon he ends up at United possibly with Mourinho.

  81. Red Arnie says:

    FGG. Pay should be proportionate to contribution towards the team. Would he be more influential than Ozil or Sanchez. I think not, but this is up to judgment

  82. Gööner In Exile says:

    Let’s be honest Ibra can save himself for big matches while partaking in the cakewalk to the title that is Ligue Un. Not sure how well he would fair over a fully competitive PL season these days.

    As for the banner everyone has a right to air their grievances and opinion, the ridiculousness is they always seem to get it wrong with the banner, it will very rarely be seen after an actual defeat because by the time we’ve had a run of a few bad results he decides to take it, and then we win and he looks a bit silly.

    As for the ST boycott we will see how effective that is come Saturday. I think it will just reinforce what the club know to be true, that there are plenty of other fans willing to take them should they not be renewed, and for the club a day tripper spending money on a programme in the armoury and on snacks is probably more financially rewarding.

  83. john says:

    How are the non football board ever to know if Wenger is doing a good job if it is not communicated from the stands.

  84. fatgingergooner says:

    How is it possible for Arsenal to be one of the biggest clubs in the world with so many incompetent people running the club? I just don’t get it! Apparently the manager is useless and the board know nothing, yet since Wenger took over we have become huge. It must be luck.

  85. fatgingergooner says:

    I wonder if Arsenal charging the lowest away prices in the PL will get as much coverage as our home prices.

  86. chas says:

    GIE
    I found this interesting re: the banner.
    Apparently they don’t unfurl it if we lose (or haven’t done in the past).

  87. mickydidit89 says:

    Morning

    Do you want a Poll today about where we finish in League with a little bit of chit chat, or, a piece about rotation?

    I’ll take the majority of first three answers (from different people, Chas, and not just different pretend people, either 🙂 )

  88. chas says:

    I’ll go for option 1 as I’m not sure we have enough players left for rotation. 🙂

    Unless I’m a pretend person, that is.

  89. Nice one Rasp

    The banner Twat is a terible disappointment to those of us who have fought long and hard to end the prejudice against those who are scorned. The main imperative of been a Knob is not to display your Knobness to others. I once spent a whole year not talking to anybody.

    As for the banner? Rubbish. If he really wanted to make a statement it should have read ” Arsene, the French Revolution was a historical folly. What are you going to do about it?”

    That would have put Wenger on the back foot.

    Morning All,

    Not often you se a sliding goat. Top work.

    Cesc got booked after receiving the kick to the neck 🙂

    Ibra? Love the bloke but not at AFC. If he comes to UK I could see him at Spurs. They need a big name to sell their new stadium (The Pissoir?)

  92. Big Raddy says:

    Sorry Micky.

    Positions for me. Better have a below 6th option for the Doomers.

  93. mickydidit89 says:

    Transplant
    Oh, the fun Mr Marmite COULD have had 🙂

  94. Eddie says:

    cesc got a card??? How come? Was the other player sent off?

    Two is a majority

  97. Big Raddy says:

    Eddie has voted psychically, and it is for the league position.

  98. True Micky. With his reference to memories he also insulted those of us who suffer from dementia. Ime going to report the Bastard.

    chas, I’ve always thought all Ibras goals were offside. That hooter is an unfair advantage. He should also have stripped his achievements of first man in space and successful invasion of the Soviet Union.

  99. Eddie says:

    no Raddy, I would love to read more about rotation 🙂

    Pool v Red mancs tonight in Europa 🙂 could be a cracker, both teams have no chance to play in CL next season otherwise

  100. Eddie says:

    me: “you are playing ManU in Europa tonight”
    tenant: “no, it is at Anfield”

    Chas I was half thinking that was the reason as it is more likely the cameras will focus on away fans after a win and when the players go towards them.

    Personally I think Wrighty’s response was brilliant, especially when asked how much he’s paid and he gave the answer about the injections he used to have to get over the touch line towards the end, and that he has ended up with a fused ankle as a result.

    But Wrighty has never changed his opinion of support first, I always liked a t-shirt they sold in the club shop with his face which said “you talk a good game, but can you play one”. And it’s hard to forget him hanging out the dressing room telling the fans who had been booing etc one day how he felt.

    Might have been same game but he actually lambasted fans in a post match interview once following a late winner something along the lines of fans not deserving it after the way we had supported.

    Not many are going to say those kind of things today unfortunately.

  102. Eddie says:

    GiE – how could they? they haven’t got fused ankles

    Post sent

    motning all. brilliant batner.

    Late to the party, but a position post might have been more relevant before our next league game, which is a few days away. 🙂

    anyways, a Micky post is always good fun, 🙂
