Room 101

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.

AKB

Doomer

Deadwood

Papering over the cracks

In Arsene we rust

Most expensive ticket prices

Failed project youth

Arsene FC

Wengerite

Glass half empty/full

Realist – when meant as an insult

Must win game

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 🙂

    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.

  31. The Cockie Monster says:

    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
