The Latest @Bradyesque7 Weekly Round-up

Hello and welcome to this week’s round-up.

We’ll start with the visit of Bayern and their ridiculously good players. The crafty Bavarians went 2-0 up in the first half and all seemed lost until our very own German, Lukas Podolski, gave us a glimmer of hope by heading home from close range. Then Theo set Giroud up with a great chance but his effort was hit straight at Neuer. Bayern grabbed a third and the first leg ended in anguish for the Gunners. Arsenal have been doing their best work in the second half games so I’m predicting a 5-1 win and a comfortable route through to the next round. It hasn’t happened yet so don’t you dare take away my dream!

Amidst what was a calm, measured response from the media, the news broke that some old guy shagged one of our strikers. We all have our theories of who it might be but for me it’s clear. That Van Persie always looked a right slut.

Arsene faced the press ahead of the Villa game and was in much better spirits than when he called out the filthbags who had been printing lies about him. This week he challenged a writer to a game of 1v1 football. Personally, I don’t see how it could work. How can you play Wengerball alone? How can you play 500 passes without shooting if you have no teammates? Only Arsene knows.

Wenger also spoke about the club’s desire to get Bacary Sagna to sign a new contract but reports are saying that he’s been bragging about the wages he will receive when he leaves the club. If you believe that story, you’ll believe the one I’m about to tell you;

I am the Arsenal striker who shagged that old guy.

So the Astons of Villa came and Arsenal disposed of them a lot more comfortably than the 2-1 scoreline would suggest. Arsenal defended with all the resistance and virtue of Jodi Marsh but, on the ball, we played some exceptional stuff. Obviously, every Arsenal fan acknowledged this and was extremely happy with the result. And if you believe that story…

I did not shag that old man! (Bill Clinton voice)

Santi has been receiving great praise from his teammates for his display and brace at the weekend. Mertesacker reckons that Santi is ‘The PERfect footballer’. Can he take a long throw like Rory Delap? Bloody doubt it, so…

Now we march on in the race for third which could see us finish second if everything went our way. We will make it difficult, we will cry, bitch and moan and we will get there. We are the Arsenal!

Last up is the announcement of the financial results for last year. Last year! Typical bloody Arsenal! What about this year? The money-men are as bad as the medical team, if you ask me. David Dein would give us the figures for the next ten years, if he were still at the club. The whole thing is a shambles.

That is all from me for this week. Thank you for reading.

Up the Arsenal!

  8. Spent a couple of nights lying low in Highgate Wood after the game. Chased along Holloway Road and up Archway Road by mounted police. Sparks flying from hooves and crackling blue light from failed tasers, the painted wagon nearly tipped right over swinging round the Archway Tavern and then again on the sharp right by The Woodman where we lost them. It was a close shave and that’s a fact.

  16. I understand they tried to stop you & neena on the holloway road Frank with a flame thrower,the headline in the highbury & islington gazette said something about “blazing saddles”?

  17. Well it all started with Lady Neena’s flatulence, Mel. I decided several days before the game that it was cruel to try to stop the habits of a lifetime so I went back to her prematch broccoli and brussels mix. After the game as a bit of a jape I decided to experiment with some Turkish Arse Whistles. She was not amused. In fact she ejected it with such force that it shot down the road not unlike a rubber bullet and hit a mounted policeman on his helmet..by that I mean his protective headgear…. and knocked him off his horse.

    All hell then broke loose resulting in what appeared to be a Peterloo style cavalry charge by the mounties. We scarpered at that point. Lady Neena was in top form though and led us down an alley which was only just wide enough for the wagon. We managed to find our way to Holloway Road before they spotted us. The ensuing chase was a cross between the Grand National and the Oklahoma Land Rush.

    But the most important thing is that Arsenal won…and although pundits and commentators and some Arsenal fans would have it otherwise in truth we flattened Veeeella.

    As I said before, Carl Jenkinson was my man of the match.

  28. Amazing how much actually happens in any given week! Thanks for the reminder B7, always a post to look forward to.

    The whole Bale thing will end in tears, I’m sure. He’s clearly outgrown the spuds and I can’t see him ending up anywhere other than, most likely Real Madrid but don’t rule out any of the big sides. Expect the pressure on RM to make a huge signing will be immense after this season’s disappointments …

    Like

  29. PaulN and Frank – Carl is getting prepared for the NLD just in case Sagna is still hurt. With Nacho on the left we are well prepared for the Spuds’ wingers. Neither Gabby Long horse or Charles Insomnia had any joy on the flanks last Saturday. Last year the 5-2 whipping we put on them started their downward slide. I have all faith that it will be the case again.

    Like

  30. Shotta, both Jenks and Monreal were real class on Saturday. I agree that our flanks will be well covered. What we need now is to lesson the gap between the mid and the back 4. Villa really had too much space to go on the counter. The Spuds do have a lot of speed so we will have tighten that up.

  34. Could this be the end of the Barca dominance? Their play style doesn’t seem to work anymore. First Madrid completely neutralised them and took them on the break, now Real did very much the same. They look completely bereft of ideas to me. It’s like when we are having one of those days, just maybe 100 times worse. Can’t remember them creating too many clear cut chances. They have the La Liga title in the bag, but I think if they go out against Milan (and lose the next classico) it will be a disappointing season by their own standards.

  35. And also notable again: Song enjoying his 846596 consecutive start … on the bench, while Cesc had another one of “those” games, where he doesn’t take any responsibility at all and goes completely invisible. No wonder he was first to be substituted, like usual. Is this really the same guy I saw playing in red and white for 8 years? Can’t remember him hiding all the time back then..

  39. From the Mirror

    “George Burley says his early judgement has been proved right – Gareth Bale is a better player than Theo Walcott.

    The former Southampton boss gave Bale his first-team debut at St Mary’s just three months after Walcott was sold to Arsenal.”

    If Bale was a better player why wait 3 months after Theo was sold, why not play him before Theo in the 1st place.

    Just another failed manager making an idiot of himself.

  45. southampton, beautiful place..i studied there and used to go to the ocean village marina, there was a tapas bar there..los marinos if i remember correclty..we met le tissier beattie and an egyptian player there once..they were totally drunk..off their heads…in the second year my house was at polygon area where their old stadium was the dell, then they moved to st mary’s area …as students of the area we bought season tickets for soton just to watch the arsenal when in town or whichever other team fellow students wnated to see…it was via that method i got to go to the millenium stadium in cardiff for the fa cup final. i had to hide my arsenal scarves and tops on the train and then running through police and yellow barricades to join with the arsenal crowd since my ticket was for a seat in southampton fans section. unforgetable times. love southampton, love le tissier and i still love that old lady with her daughters at the place called “merchants” .. how i wish i was back …

    i wonder if they ever built that terminal in dibden bay…them fuckers made us write a 3000 word essay on fucking marshes and port dredging and container cranes and bllleaaaahhhhhhhh…… then 2002 i thought we were playing the game with united at highbury (dont laugh) and went to london to force my way in..no ticket, nothing, pure will, as i reached finsbury park i saw an ocean of red and white and thought “wonderful, we will smash the gates and get in, i dont need a ticket ” …..then i saw them all going to the pubs and thought thats not right…then i figured it all out….sat at th epub..enjoyed it thoroughly and when we came out to celebrate and throw beer to eachother the bloddy riot police was surrounding us and taking photos of people..how rude…we have beaten them red mancs inside their home…and they wouldnt let us celebrate in london? thats when i knew they dont like us….

  48. I’ve caught a couple of Betis games recently and I thought Campbell was looking very good, comfortable on the ball and confident to keep it under pressure and take players on. He’s not scoring many but he doesn’t seem to be allowed to make too many runs in behind, he’s always disciplined and works hard to defend. He needs to come to Arsenal so Wenger can give him the intelligence to use all that skill, strength and pace properly. I can’t wait to see him in an Arsenal shirt.
