This is not an attempt at censorship, just an advisory page to try to steer supporters away from some of the trite words and phrases that have entered the blogger’s vernacular. In some cases these words and phrases are disrespectful and in others they are simply lazy pigeonholing fed to us by elements of the media that seek only to criticise The Arsenal.
We welcome suggestions of other examples that may have been clever once but are now just tired clichés.
Papering over the cracks
Most expensive ticket prices
Failed project youth
Glass half empty/full
Realist – when meant as an insult
In addition we should avoid any form of preemptive blogging, by which we mean a comment which is put up with the intention of invalidating an anticipated comment from other bloggers with whom they disagree. It’s not constructive and is an attempt at censorship.
Lastly, those who simply have to ‘have the last word’ are often perceived as being plain argumentative … which is boring! Knowing when to drop a subject that is going nowhere is an art that all bloggers should cultivate if we are to avoid bickering on the site 🙂
Most Expensive Ticket Prices

He`s the new Bergkamp ! ( add any name you wish )
” I was after Messi, Pique and Fabregas ! “………” I had Ronaldo Lady Boy one )in a shirt with his name on it !”…………” Ibrahimovic was on trial, he also had a shirt with his name on it ! “…….I could have had Drogba for £100K ! “………Yaya Toure was on trial !”.
So what do I want to put in Room 101 ?……Wenger`s gob !……… I don’t want to hear about the one`s you let slip away !……as for Fabregas, you let him slip into the hands of Maureen !.
The Daily Mail!
Headlines like ‘Everton change their style to beat Wolfsburg….Arsene Wenger could learn a thing or two from Roberto Martinez’
WTF does Arsene Wenger have to do with Everton beating Wolfsburg!? Talk about an agenda! Every time I search Arsenal online I see some scabby Daily Mail article having a pop at Wenger or Arsenal. Worse thing about it is a lot of our fans read this b*llocks and feed off it.
How about the lock on the door of Room 101 being Arsene`s Zipper !…………………lets see how long it takes him to get in !. hahaha
