Sol’s a Gooner

February 28, 2010

I just loved Sol’s passionate chest beating reaction after Thomas scored the 3rd goal at Stoke yesterday. Anyone who thought he was a strange acquisition in January must surely be having a slice of humble pie. As far as I am concerned we should look at getting him on board for next season as well. His knowledge, experience and professionalism would be an asset for any club, especially at a nurturing club like Arsenal where he could contribute so much behind the scenes whilst also providing effective cover on the field when called upon.

Cheers, mines a Sol.

It’s hard to enjoy the victory against Stoke no matter how significant in the title race when a player with so much potential and future Arsenal captain material is so badly hurt. The frustration of Arsene and Cesc in the after match interviews was obvious and surely shared by all true football fans whatever team they may support.

The fact that the Stoke player was crying as he was sent off the pitch, for me does not absolve him of the responsibility for an over the top challenge. He didn’t mean it, he is not that type of player, you can just hear all the excuses the media and Stoke will come out with. Sorry but how different is this to a drug smuggler caught at an airport who starts crying as they realise the consequences and impending prison sentence? He did it, he lost control, he may have ruined one of the most promising careers in football. The punishment? At this time I cannot begin to fathom what he deserves or might be appropriate but I do know that it is not just a 3 match ban for that would be an insult.

My thoughts and prayers are with Aaron and his family for a very speedy and full recovery.

God Bless.

The difference between Guts and Balls.

Guts is arriving home late after a night out with the boys, being met by your wife with a broom and asking her ‘are you still cleaning or flying off somewhere’?

Balls is: Coming home late after a night out with the boys smelling of perfume & beer with lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the arse and saying ‘your next fatty’.

What goalkeeping crisis?

I'm trying to understand Arsene

Response to: Wenger’s View – The Official Manager’s Email – 1 February 2010

How aboutĀ  coming out and saying I got it wrong! I pick the team, I bring the players in, they are my tactics (if any) etc.

Off the mark performance? Don’t try and suggest this is a one off we have suffered this type of inept performance several times over recent years.

You don’t know why we performed so badly? Your having a bubble bath. Just ask anyone with even limited football experience and they can tell you. For starters, your arrogant stubborn self, Denilson, Coco and Clichy, I could go on and on but what for, you’d never listen.

These fresh wounds, raw pain and continued anguish must be taking their toll on all supporters, asĀ  much as we all respect what Arsene has done for Arsenal something must give and soon.
