Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
I don't think we would be where we are without him in the PL. He shows us what we have been missing. The question is though (to me) should we still try to sign Schneiderlin or a player like him? I think so.
LMFAO!!! - in other words, you're off to the off-licence to buy yourself a couple of cans of 'tramp juice' before heading off to the park to flash your decrepit OLD body at the children playing there.
You really are one extremely sad, silly, flatulent OLD woofter that I continually laugh at.
For someone who gives it the big "I am" like you do, you've spent an incredibly large amount of your time living on the Yahoo forums, like at least 24/7 of the last decade.
Lovely to know that I've wound you up so much, it brings a huge smile to my face! - ROTFFLMFAO!!!
Freddie was a complete team player, whereas Marc did have his favourites.
I remember him going a string of matches where he purposely played the ball behind Anelka when he passed to him. He didn't like Anelka's big headedness and so he scuppered many chances for him to score.
He was lightening quick, but he was a LW and I have Pires in that position. Freddie was a RW and the only replacement I could think of for him would have been the Romford Pele.
But I ran out of subs.
I blame the owner for not being ambitious enough to sack a manager who wins nothing for a long time. It is the owner who keeps Wenger on and who puts no performance standards or targets on him. An owner like Abramovich has so much ambition that he sacks his manager at the first sight of failure and although this looks a bit stupid at times, it is hard to argue that his strategy has resulted in many more trophies than Arsenal's.
This board is dead and I bet that sad sack who reckons that 'it' is moving to Bali will end up spending the remainder of 'it's' days dwelling about the fact a geordie tormented 'it' for the best part of a decade and there was nothing 'it' could do about it! - LMFAO!!!
TOON ARMY!!! TOON ARMY!!! TOON ARMY!!!
The only thing that's going to shift Wenger and his thinking, is if Tottenham knock us out of a place in the CL. And that is not as far away as some may think. A sobering thought for many, including the Arsenal board, who just might sit up and pay attention for once. BTW A Happy New Year to you and everyone. BTW again what was AW thinking of when he had 3 or 4 five foot 'nothings' up front against a six foot plus defence at S'hampton?
A few seasons ago we never thought we would be talking about Wilshire this way. About his potential etc. We expected that by now the talking would be about his actual game rather than his potential.
He should no longer get a free ride and for the moment, even if he is fit, I don't see his place in the starting 11.
The other problem Arsenal have, IMO, is that we have too many players that have similar attributes. Good technique, easily ran of the ball, small physique, not particularly pacy, preferring to play in the middle of the park.
IMO, we can only really play with a maximum of 2 such players at a time. If you consider 4 defenders and 1 DM that leaves room (ideally) for 2 small technical players, a striker and two quick wide players.
In fact I don't even think there is space for Ozil in our starting 11.
At the moment I would argue for Sanchez-Giroud-Walcott up front and Bellerin - Mert - Cos - Monreal or Gibbs in the back with Coquelin as DM.
This leaves 2 places for centrally functioning midfielders and to me on current form Cazorla is a shoe in leaving Ramsey, Wilshire, Rosicky, Ozil, Ox. When all fit my second choice would be Ox since he has pace which you need in today's game IMO.
AAAAARRRRHHHHH! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha That's hilarious.....that will have them rolling the aisles on the Arsenal board
10 years ago Arsenal went the season unbeaten, resulting in the team being labelled 'the Invincibles'.
This lead to an infamous quote by David Dein after lifting the Prem trophy, 'they will go on to dominate for the next decade'.
It didn't quite work out like that, so why was he so wrong?
I'd like to know peoples thoughts on this fact, even if they are excuses formed from personal bias.
For me, the buck stops with Wenger. Its documented fact hes had plenty more money available to him than he spent, signed inadequate replacements for big players he let leave, criminally in some cases, and thats if he replaced them at all, which he more often than not hasnt. He has no plan B, you cant play the same exact way every week home and away, so do this for year on after year seems like very poor judgment, and thats not so much opinion as what seems to be basic observation universally perceived.
Considering Wenger has spent over £100m recently Im not sure we can blame the owner too much.
What annoys me is that despite spending all that money, you're no stronger than you have been the past 10 years and are nowhere near good enough to challenge for the title, the main priority. This side looks like another 'long term project', which has been the case the past 10 years also.
Like you (and Mourinho) say, Wenger has the best job in football. He gets paid silly money, his job is forever secure and he doesnt have to win anything. Winning a domestic cup barely counts as none of the top clubs 'try' for it, so if a top 4 side does it should be theirs considering the quality of opposition that usually features.
I am sure all Arsenal fans have been waiting anxiously for a sign of improvement of form. A sign we are about to go on a much needed run of wins.
Last night there was no such sign despite a good result. The squad we fielded should have been able to do much better and our defending is still horrendous. Ironically in the last few games it has been Mertesacker who has let us down if you ask me. He was always burdened with a lack of pace an athleticism but age seems to have caused him to drop of a cliff. As I must have said 10 times this season, there was a reason Mert was not trusted to lead the German defense during the World Cup and we have to hope Wenger wakes up to the wisdom of Joachim Low sooner rather than later.
Once on Wenger's favorite list he tends to stick by his players longer than he should. Just as once on his #$%$ list (Podolski, Campbell) no matter what you do you won't get into the starting line-up without all options ahead of you being exhausted.
I still think we will struggle more than ever to finish in the top 4 and injuries should have nothing to do with that. The teams we have been able to field this season should have won more than they have.
...and I know how hard it is to keep all the joy and excitement of an Arsenal win under control on here, but please, this is ridiculous . Once upon a time there were people who actually supported one football team or another, or gave vent to the smug joy of Newcastle knocking over Totters on their own ground. Or how lucky Manure were today to have an old Arsenal discard grab a point for them. Instead I'm greeted by stony silence, as though The Emirates had just burned down, or Wenger had just sold Ramsey and Sanchez to Manure. What does it take to get you lot motivated, another team of invincibles ? But even that I think wouldn't do it. Tickets for the Burnley game ? Anyone. Anyone!

Hi my little sunshine. I won't rub your face in the fact that I don't post under another name. Neither will I rub your face in the fact that you can clearly not make a distinction between the following two sentences. "Next in line is a spanking by Van Gaal and his struggling team" and "Next in line is a likely spanking by Van Gaal and his struggling team." The first sentence is a lot like Sanchez saying the 3 points from the Swansea game are coming back to London.
Finally, apparently unlike you, I prefer Arsenal winning over my expectations being correct.
Let us hope Wenger hits his head and travels back 10-15 years in time and goes out and buys Hummels and Khedeira or Carvalho.
Hahaha, I knew it wouldn't take long for you to BITE!
" nobody even remembers who you are" ..... Except YOU, Mr "I Watched From The North Bank Fifty Years Ago" Brown!
And the Geordie Child, of course, he's been worried sick for seven weeks that I wouldn't come back, cos I'm all he lives for, I'm his online fantasy world, along with his pretend house in France, his pretend property empire, his pretend fleet of classic cars, and his pretend wife!
So get back to "normal", yank, run down everyone who has an opinion on football .... John and Govinda, and show us just what a twot you are!
PS: How's Gillian, has she found the number for the cops yet? I'll bet they're just itching to track me down for insulting you!
...defending again against an equally shambolic Stoke, as were some of the other results today. shambolic Chelsea, as well as L'pool, Tottenham, Everton, and most of the top ten. So its not just Arsenal. The result didn't matter at all in terms of position in the league. Manure going dutch, will as usual go backwards again and we are all back to where we were a week ago. Time to wake up another shambolic human, who is probably well into his third bottle of rum on a Saturday night. We should be getting some of his bucolic vomiting on here some time soon. He's about as boring as Manchester's football......
An easy 1-4 win for Arsenal against Galatasaray, it's just a shame Arsenal are not getting results like this week in and week out in the Premier League or they could easily be sitting top of the league!
....No!!!!??? Good God! I'm move to tears. Surely there has to some complaints like it should have been 10 - 1. Well 5 at least seeing how Welbeck never touched the other bloke before scoring. But I think I'll go to Rio on that result, rather than fly blown Bali. Anyway its full of kids and old bald blokes in thongs and Speedo briefs (Budgie smugglers ) with their fat gut hanging over them. Can't be much fun unless your into that kind of thing.
Good result, Lewis Hamilton, a SPORTSMAN, wins SPORTSMAN of the Year.
Snooker is a GAME, not a sport, good luck to Sullivan for GAMER of the Year.
