The Daily Mirror: Scum Bags Of The Year

The Daily Mirror: Scum Bags Of The Year

The mischievous Mirror have proved just what a set of **** bags they really are.

Some may accuse we Gooners of being a touch paranoid when it comes to the stories printed by our nations press, but when you read junk such as the Theo Walcott story printed by the Daily Mirror this morning, it's not difficult to see why.

At the end of the season Arsene Wenger was praising the progression of young Theo stating that the English forward can now fight for a starting birth.

The Arsenal gaffer said, 'I think he started [the season] as a promising young player and he finished it as a guy who can fight for a regular place in the side,'

'The next step for him is to be a player who can produce regular performances and efficiency. I am very hopeful he can be that.'

'Sometimes he can be too much 'in and out' of the game still but we have seen when he is in, he is completely in now.'

Somehow, from Mr Wenger's quotes, the Daily Mirror managed to fashion a story titled 'Theo Walcott still not ready, says Arsene Wenger'.

They red top scum bags deliberately left out the beginning and the end of Wenger's statement with the sole intention of causing trouble.

The media in this country are constantly piling pressure on the national football team, often placing the weight of the country on the shoulders of their youngest players, but if they want these players to turn into the national heroes they want them to be, then they should think on before shit stirring and trying to spoil the relationship between player and manager.

Ha! So much for my 'under the radar' speak. This is exactly what they did with Gallas' quotes about Theo. I was in Milan when that story broke and when I came back to England I had no idea what people were talking about in this 'Gallas slams Theo' storm. It turned out that they had quoted one sentence of a huge artcile in which he says Theo needs to keep improving (my God, what slander!) and work on his left foot. The rest of the article had been Gallas saying that Theo had all the materials to be world class and was one of the best teenage footballers he'd ever seen and what a good head he had on his shoulders. I would dearly love Walcott to retire from international football now, in five years, the Mirror will be sliding on their bellies, like they did in Euro 96 when they had to print a front page apology to Gazza in the wake of his goal against Scotland.

Why bother getting wound up about this s@#t bags, we have known for a long time that some reporters such as Ollie Holt have it in for Arsenal and would go down on Fergie if asked, so don't bother and just ignore the morons.

The Daily Fail did something equally as abhorrent last week, wherby they published an article with no quotes or even their usual tawdry "sources close to the club..." bull****. it was an article about how Ade had demanded £80K a week or he was leaving. it even went on to state how Wenger was facing a mass exodus and a would have to rebuild his entire squad. i honestly have no idea how it's allowed.

I can't get myself to put into words what i feel for such scum, so i'll go a bit off topic here: how is adebayor rating so low on the player of the season voting (behind clichy ?!), I fail to understand.

Said it before, I'll say it again. The papers in this country should be renamed The Red Press. I swear to God that all the sports journalists are actually Spitting Image puppets with Manchester United hands up their nether regions.

G4L, I was thinking the same thing about Flamini. I know he's decided to leave, but he surely has to be a bigger contender than he is at present?

The press does this all the time. One day I'll watch Arsene's press conference or one-on-one interview on the official site. Next day I see headlines taking out one quote from his entire Q&A twisting his entire intent. Another thing they do (and not just with Arsene) is they used words like "BLASTS" and "FURIOUS" and other such hysterical, emotive words to describe a comment often made in passing, or just a comment made calmly and with equanimity. The way the press uses these words you'd think Arsene was screaming and shouting and shaking his fists.

And anyone with half a brain or relatively in the know with football knows it's all b0llox. No idea why you'd get wound up with it all.

Hehee what do you expect from Daily Mirror when the supposedly more decent broadsheets like Telegraph, Times, Guardian and Daily Mail are doing the same?! And yes, I´m back online. Missed you guys! :D
