Welcome to the GunnersoreArse Blog, being blogged 918.74 kilometers (in a straight line) from the Emirates Stadium.
This article is a continuation from my last post, so perhaps to understand the context, it may be best to read that first here:
In the mid 70’s, Arsenal had declined somewhat from the glory days of the early 70’s. The lowest point being a 17th place position in the league in 1975/76. Most of the double winning team of 1970/71 were moving to other teams and Bertie Mee had been replaced by Terry Neill as manager, Charlie George had gone, Ray Kennedy had gone to Liverpool and made a very successful change from Striker to Midfielder. George Graham had buggered off to Man Utd in 1972 and Frank McClintock had moved across London to Queens Park Rangers, increasing his weekly wage by nearly 100%, does that ring any bells relating to…

Low went with Boateng instead of Mertesacker because he knows the Bayern Munich system a lot better. Again, you make stupid assumptions based on ignorance.
Hummels plays the Koscielny role at Dortmund. What the hell are you on about?
Hunter have you every considered a part-time slot at the comedy store? Stand up?
A good thing for Germany that Boateng (& Schweiny) had such good games. No doubt the German left with Hummles and Howdes was the obvious weak spot. I thought before the game that they had to start Lavezzi on their right (started on the left last game) to attack the German weak area to have a chance in this game, and they did. So was surprised to see Lavezzi go off at HT. Injury? Hunter may be in denial but the Argie coach knew which areas to target. Alongside Messi’s low fitness after so many injuries this season, losing di Maria was a massive blow. But Germany also had to cope with their injuries. They had a bigger better squad. And their manager rotated his way through the tournament like a genius.
I was very happy when the better Boateng bruvver moved from Abu Dhabi to Munchen.
“I’m not hyping up anyone mate….youre the one talking bollocks about players who have done things in their careers and claiming that lesser players in lesser clubs with lesser achievements are on another level…..a truly laughable statement of yours. and i have told you before…when djourou does better than them you can come and claim his superiority over them. till then your claim is a ridiculous one.”
All I said is I’d stick with Djourou instead of paying over the odds for donkeys like Hummels and David Luiz.
By the way, you still haven’t told me why you think these two players are better than Djourou. All you’ve done is talk about titles, but you haven’t once told me why Hummels or David Luiz are better.
Since Koscielny has only won just one FA cup, do you consider him to be below the level of either Hummels or David Luiz?
Müller should have been the player of the tournament.
absolutely not…in the dortmund squad klopp has assigned defensive organisation i.e the per role to hummels and subotic is their ninja just like kons is our ninja…..it is rather obvious mate.

Joachim Low : http://www.sportsmole.co.uk/football/germany/world-cup/news/low-praises-sensational-hummels_163392.html
“He’s unbelievably important for us here,” said Roman Weidenfeller, a long-term team-mate of Hummels at Dortmund and Germany’s second-choice goalkeeper in Brazil behind Manuel Neuer. “He’s so professional in every situation and he always says what he thinks. He’s developing into a leader more and more and when you think that he’s now scored twice for us here in Brazil [Hummels was also on target in Germany’s 4-0 win over Portugal], that has helped him become increasingly important,” the 33-year-old said in an interview
Even Benedikt Howedes, captain of Dortmund’s arch-rivals Schalke, was effusive in his praise, exclusively telling FIFA.com: “We’ve got several leaders in this team but Mats has developed amazingly well and is definitely considered one of those players now.”
a player that his team mates and manager consider a fucking leader lol…..and according to you he is a donkey and dhjourou is better than him………
I think I might start an Arsenal blog
oh ……. and konscielny was never part of the discussion mate….djourou was. stop twisting it to suit your biased narrative.
fins since when are you part of this discussion..???? *put a sock in it*
yep you do that blog george and tell those two clowns to take it easy……massive disappointment in fins…massive… ok the other one is retarded and wants to prove he knows more than all and that …. whats fins excuse?
I’ll tell you what’s retarded. Calling other posters retarded. That what’s retarded.
All you’ve done is talk about titles, but you haven’t once told me why Hummels or David Luiz are better.
if you have a reading disability problem i suggest you go to a doctor
1) you took cheap shots when brasil got raped 7-1 …i have proved that your cheap shots were off target going goal by goal.
2) you claimed djourou is at a better level. besides trophies and achievements……. i told you to have a look at their personal stats and attributes ( technical, physical mental) . i trust the database of fm far more than anyone in here as that same database forms the info upon agents and managers worldwise purchase and scout players. oh and it gets it more right than anyone.
so where the hell does this “all youve done is talk about titles” you lying turd?
i have provided 3 different ways of proof for my claims and can even leave the 4th one out ( player values) .. what have you provided other than your biased opinion ?
but he is george…look at his responses…all of them off target, all of them escaping the issue…all of them wrong.
plus im not the one insisting …. or bringing this back to the surface….
But he is not retarded, he has an opinion that you don’t agree with or like. Others agree too. Are they retarded?
This is not the place for that. At least I and most others don’t want it to be.
in what ways is djourou better than them two?
does he play for bigger clubs?
does he appear in bigger stages?
does he command more money ?
does he have a better tackling ratio? lol….
is he more of a leader than the other two?
is he more technical than luiz?
is he more of a fighter than both?
has he won more at club, national, individual level ?
is he as versatile as the other two?
no to all of the above
yet somehow i have to tolerate cheap shots from a mug who dislikes luiz + hummels and his entourage ? …….
and if i dare fight my corner i get people telling me to move on ? …lol when its others insisting?
so its a no win scenario then…….
July 14, 2014 at 3:34 pm
well mate i prove what i state/claim.
he does not.
ergo : he is in no position to throw cheap shots or seek confrontations…..
And once again you are blameless?
Why does it always have to degenerate into a slanging match?
And I know its not “all” you. But time and again I ask for restraint and I’m ignored.
Just play nice will you?
blame me for what?
i offered peace pipe and he comes back like a fucking snake trying to make me look like i knock down arsenal players.
team/club allegiances are irrelevant in this discussion…this is about player comparison and no its not about opinions but facts.
i have played very nice so far ……
If Mats Humels had a store which sold donuts it would be called Donkey’s Donuts.
It may not happen that frequently, but I think Maradona was right about the comments he made about Messi and about Lavezzi’s substitution.
Otherwise, this is a fascinating discussion about CB’s who don’t play for Arsenal. But I am proud of Merts and Kos for doing well this world cup. I wish Merts had been picked ahead of Boateng for the last two matches, but he performed well up until Algeria, but I think he was exposed because Lahm wasn’t playing RB. Deschamps seemed to want to play Sakho ahead of Kos, but in fact Kos clearly played better when he got his chances.

jamez rodriguez? is diego on the powders again? …agghhmmmm….jamez = overhyped ..joel had a far better tournament……….
Adidas are paying 75Million a year for Manure?? There is too much money in football these days. 75 Million for Suarez… Pretty soon, there will be some wonder kid bought for 100 million. Oh wait, Barcelona already did that. *Shake of the head*
Still, Muller and Robben had better tournaments, I’d say. I think JC had a fine tournament. But his effectiveness faded a bit the last couple of games he played.
hey come on…. robben is a cheating scum diver …. he dont deserve any recognition. should be banned for life and fined 1m per dive for all the distress caused to the children.
My advice to whoever conspired to award Messi the player of the tournament award is not to give it to the captain of the losing side just after the WC final
My god he looked glum
As hunter said… Arjen cheat too much and overshadows all his good work… still more deserving than Messi… For that matter Di maria was more deserving than him… I would have given Muller since he was on the winning side and actually played all game
I think Danny Welbeck could have been in with a shout
In a parallel universe
Good referee last night I thought – missed the Neuer knee to the head but he did not get any help from his lino who was on that side so not much he could do
In fact I would go so far as to say a much improved refereeing display this tournament compared to South Africa in spite of some fairly incessant cheating by the players
I’m glad you noticed how hyped James Rodriguez is, Hunter. Now sit back and watch as this kid is excused for never living up to his hype.
I despise Robben too but he was at the heart of almost every Dutch attack, it seemed.

haahhahahaa … at least you make me laugh. now go dip them donuts of yours in that swiss soft ice cream and be careful it dont melt in your hands….
anicoll5 July 14, 2014 at 6:19 pm
i think that was a penalty…possibly a dismissal too but i wont say anything formal till donkey kong remits his authority on the matter….
“Now sit back and watch as this kid is excused for never living up to his hype.”
absolutely… but i suggest he has a chat first with djourou so that he learns first hand how to seize the opportunity
i mean its not every day where i see 4th choice defenders for arsenal who played first team under circumstances of other players injuries and being loaned out in mighty hamburg overshadowing world cup donkeys….
Thought I would just pop on to have a chat — but please accept my apologies — i seem to have intruded into an unpleasant private war.
I suggest he has a chat with David Luiz and Hummels instead. If he goes to them he will learn how slow, mistake prone players can obtain legendary status from an adoring media.
That fourth choice defender is a starter for one of the best defences in world football. Oh, and he doesn’t get to decide where he’s sent on loan. Wenger sent him to Hamburg for a reason.

The ref was awesome. For me he’s the best Italian ref since Pierluigi Collina.
Fitting end to a good world cup. Interesting debates going on…I like Hummels – good player, bit of the Tony Stark facial hair look, I think he did well in the final and he’s got an excellent WAG – so he must have excellent taste. No wonder I like him.
…one thing I noticed about this match which was a bit odd…Ozil has ball…Ozil shields ball…Ozil gets pushed over…no fall…play on…did they forget he didn’t have his Arsenal colours on lol?
Gainsbourg69 July 14, 2014 at 7:10 pm
those donkeys you talk about one of them is a world cup winner and the other has won b2b european titles….. both have been key members of their teams successes…not 2nd 3rd r 4th option….
arsene sure did… to let the boy find himself for his mind and level were not good enough for arsenal and who knows maybe someone gets fooled overthere and he can get a few bucks out of him….. its not like we run a academy where we buy develop sell ..oh no…everyone is destined for first team football… hehee
anyway….the blog is not yours nor mine so i guess we show some fucking dignity…both of us to end this farcical debate in which you have nothing to stand on other than your opinion…..
