Have to say our mental strength has been absolutely outstanding.
Gooner_Vin
2-1 defeat. Brilliant mental strength again. Haha!
Gooner_Vin
Awful defending at set pieces to concede both goals. Also you have to wonder how a team can have so much possesion in the opposition half in nearly every game and manage so few goals. Admittedly a lot of it was down to bad finishing from Nasri today.
bowiecokemirror
It just gets WORSE. Title gone. Runners Up Spot gone. Next week's match now meaningless. We'll lose top 4 next. Mark my words. Exasperated isn't the word. We've turned into a joke now with all the mental resistance of glass. God knows where we'll end up now.
julieloveshenry4ever
No! Don't give up yet!!! First you need to defeat United for us! Carefree:)))))
zolastic
Now lets wait for all the fans who jeered the team at home/ in the pub or at the ground to get slated for not blindly supporting the same junk week in week out after every punch in the ********* to get slaughtered by certain individuals. Defence were a total joke and Nasri continued his 2nd half of the season form and should be dropped for someone approaching close to half decent form. He just looks terrible when he isn't playing through the middle.
LondonGooner
I don't think it is down to mental strength. We just seem to lack a physical presence in defence and attack. Goalkeeping position is the only area of the team we seem to have that and midfield when Song is playing. We can only play in one style when we attack when sometimes we need to play more directly but we can't without a certain type of striker. Bendtner isn't good enough and Chamakh seems burnt out. At the back we don't seem to have a commanding centre back to keep us organised and win aerial balls. Playing with a lot of small skilful players like Barca may work in the la liga but it clearly doesn't work in the premier league. Hopefully AW has finally worked that out.
bowiecokemirror
Soft fans, soft team, a laughing stock.
jackstan
I hope AW is joking when he says we dont need to bring in significant talent in the summer!!!! We need to strenghten our defence as a priority and badly need a forward with real physical presence. If not we will reapeat this seasons failures all over again! We really are the "nearly" team.
deadlydave
chamakh burnt out? Are you joking he has barley played my 52 year old dad played a double header for my team today and will be the first at five a side tomorrow don't give me burnt out 50 grand a week and the best facilities money can buy!!!
saint_gunna
bowie - he hasn't and i doubt he will. He's forever coming out with "we want to focus on the game we love to play". The difference is that United just want to get the ball in the net. Arsenal want to walk the ball into the net. This team is not close at all and you seriously worry whether the scars from persistent failure and capitulation when it counts will actually weaken and not strengthen them. I almost guarantee that Wenger will look at it in the summer and think we've got close so let's stick with it coz we'll improve.
Gooner_Vin
Chamakh said himself he is burnt out: http://www.premierleague.com/page/Headlines/0,,12306~2293728,00.html I don't understand why myself but his performances have reflected that, he seems a pale shadow of the player we saw at the start of the season. But it is obvious when teams defend deep with numbers behind the ball you can't always open them up with quick passing football and sometimes need to bombard the area with crosses. You need a striker who is good in the air to do that. I don't understand why AW can't see that. Maybe Chamakh was meant to be the solution but it clearly hasn't worked out for him this season. At the back, again we don't have a commanding centre back to win balls in the air and keep the back line organised.
bowiecokemirror
I think you're right GV, he doesn't seem to learn after so many seasons already. I have so much respect and admiration for AW and would not want him to leave the club. At the same time I think he is the one to blame for this situation not the players. I don't see a lack of effort from the players, the are doing their best but they can't change their physical attributes.
bowiecokemirror
So your missus ran off with a gooner jackstain, get over it you no life little chav troll. Shes's happier with a long red & white dick rather than your little blue chipolata sonny.
nikolaijns
Oh dear Oh dear Oh dear...and I was really really honestly wanting you guys to win this one..In fact I was actually believing it was a dead cert Arsenal win.....How could are very dear London neighbours let me down?? Oh well $hit happens
Blue_Mel
Actually you seem far too immature to have a missus, it must be your mama did a runner with a gooner. You have a feckin cheek to slate our crowd too, watching MOTD last night and the chelski game, all the crowd shots were of smarmy looking glory hunting to55ers with jumpers draped over shoulders and middle class mums escorting their obese little Tarquins trying in vain to keep the fat little brats dry, that was you wasn't it jackstain?
nikolaijns
joke of a club, everything you are is gangster funded, everything you've ever won is ripped and plundered from a gangster run nation. You're team is chocka of the worst scum known to football, ugly spit roasting lowlife that think nothing of cheating on team mates and partners. Revolting cheating diving Jokes like Drogba he really is a ******** disgrace. Scummy classless little club. The Michael Carroll (google it thicko) of football.
nikolaijns
Niko...tut tut tut , ther was me thinking you werent half a bad chap.. you making me reconsider
Blue_Mel
Never mind Melvyn I'm sure if i bought your bus stop in Fulham and spent a couple of billion on it you could overlook what a complete bastid I am.
nikolaijns
HA HA HA! Niks, do you think Jaskstan even see's the irony behind calling Arsenal fans soft, when his own club cannot even sell out their stadium week in week out and it only gets to two thirds full because most of the fans their are chav johnny come lately plastics. The day a chav fan rips on Arsenal with their mediocre history and team full of s*** heads of the worst kind and doesn't realise what a ***** he's making of himself has just been and gone.
LondonGooner
LondonGooner, when football was football, Chelsea had the best away support in England, we literally took over grounds, for example, Fulham get gates of 5000-7000 against Cardiff/Swansea and the gate for the Chelsea game is 25000, some away games were like home games in those days for CFC. We also took 3 sides of Ninian Park and Maine Road. On the first game after promotion to the 1st division, we took 20000 to Highbury, look up Dixon clock end, it's all on video. We took 10000 to literally every away game in those days and where were the Arsenal fans? Nowhere! SB 2/3 full? Since when? We average over 41000 this season, as we do every year. Yes we have attracted some gloryhunters and tourists but the loyal fan base is still there, Arsenal never really had one, always been soft, everyone knows that. 4 of the top 10 attendances in English league football were at Stamford bridge, the highest being 82905. We have the 5th highest all time average attendance, in spite of going 50 years with no title, proving the loyal strength of our fan base. Niko how can u mention diving? Drogba has dived about twice in his CFC career, compared to RVP, Eboue, Arshavin and Chamakh who all dive and cheat regularly. Your manager is the biggest moaner in world football, everyone hates him now. Scummy classless? Greatest England striker ever, Jimmy Greaves, from the CFC academy, Osgood, Harris, Bonetti, Nevin, Dixon, Zola, Charlie Cooke, the liquidator, celery, one man went to mow, the Kings Road, what a great club Chelsea is, with unique traditions. You have been in our shadow for 7 years now, time to accept we are the pride of London, as the flag says and before u call the flag plastic, it has been around since the 70's, know your history kids.
jackstan
Chelsea? Unique traditions? Lol. Now I've heard it all. Perhaps Roman can buy you some unique traditions but you're certainly not a club known for it.
Wyn Mills
Do u know any other club that throws around celery? Sings one man went to mow? Plays The Liquidator before every game? Has the glamour of the Kings Road? You clearly don't know much about football culture in general Mills, a lot of the football chants today were invented by Chelsea. The AND LEICESTER part of we all follow the, invented by Chelsea and now used by most clubs. What unique traditions do Arsenal have?
jackstan
Wenger has to stop looking like a loon at pitchside and get some experience and backbone into this team. The players looked shot after that match and no amount of belief in mental strength is going to turn them into champions. Not this season. Not the next.
Wyn Mills
Please name we ONE unique Arsenal tradition.
jackstan
You call throwing celery around tradition? How about introducing floodlights, electronic turnstiles, scoreboards . Yes, that's right we have a tradition of ground-breaking innovation in football. A tradition of doing things the right way - like self-sustainability.
Wyn Mills
LOL! I thought you would've named something more popular like chanting the goalscorers names at the emirates. Tough luck guys but it's got to be said, this happens every season and yet every season nothing changes, from your point of view, what is it this Arsenal team needs?
TheFamousNo7
Celery?? FFS!
Wyn Mills
It's terrace tradition yes, what else would u call it? It's a unique tradition to Chelsea fans, interesting that u didn't mention any traditions with your fans, probably because u have none, always been soft fans and always will be. Doing things the right way? If u mean selling out for business, selling the name of your stadium and moving to a plastic soulless lego land then yes, great. Electronic turnstiles? That's your tradition? Sums up what a plastic club Arsenal has become. Even some Gooners i know admit it, u need to be rich to buy a burger at lego land these days, full of yuppies who sit there with their arms folded. Your club has been bankrupt in the past you know, football didn't begin in 2000 lol. Arsenal fans talk about their club like a business, it's really sad but very apt. You will soon be owned by a one eyed billionaire, is that the right way? Your response proves my point totally, cheers.
jackstan
Exactly Mills, it's a mad, unique tradition and it sums up Chelsea fans. Electronic turnstiles is your fan culture? LOL!
jackstan
Hilarious, love the way the 1st thing on your list is about how you and your lot serenade about brushing each others anuses lovingly with a garden vegetable. One man went to mow is a crap chant - always has been naff, always will be and wow you play a tune before every game...groundbreaking stuff. The funniest thing is your insistence that Drogba has only ever dived twice - priceless!! How the hell can that be said with a straight face?
nikolaijns
We must be the only club in world football that sings a song about a vegetable and throws it around for a laugh, incidentally it was banned because someone threw it at that snivelling wimp Fabregas. 'Celery, celery, if she don't cum i'll tickle her bum with a lump of celery.'
jackstan
niko, it's a nutty tradition and it's a laugh, we have songs, we invented a decent amount of them and the rest follow. Do Arsenal have 1 unique song? Please show me evidence of Drogba diving? He dived against Liverpool on the half way line....Why even mention diving though, we know your players like the odd dive. Some of Chamakh's dives earlier in the season were disgraceful.
jackstan
Listen mate, you're the one with a TravelLodge sitting at the end of your ground, so don't start preaching to us about selling out to business.
Wyn Mills
Well there's a tradition for a start, we've managed to curb halfwits flinging garden produce about. Why don't you get Cech to stick a couple of stalks in his helmet to keep the glorious tradition alive and well?
nikolaijns
Heh yeah travelLodge PMSL! Do you take your 12" plate in there for breakfast on match day Jack?
nikolaijns
I went to Chelsea once. Total library. I went to the museum but the tour was over in two minutes. ***** club. We went into the club shop. Oh dear...some bird tried to sign up me and mate to join the mailing list. pffftttt!!! No thanks!! The stadium reminded me in of a duplo lego set: bits of it had clearly been squashed together in an attempt to create a seamless whole; a project which, by and large had failed. Oh well, what would I know?...I suppose you'd take this as rather disrespectful after all your club's great innovations. I mean, where would be in a world where people didn't throw vegetables at strangers?
Tony Rocky Horror
What unique traditions do Arsenal fans have? Erm electronic turnstyles, scoreboards? PMSL.
jackstan
Lol, an Arsenal fan calling another ground a library, your old ground was known as Library Highbury and the plastic Emirates stadium has taken that reputation to another level. Yes the atmosphere at the Bridge has got worse but it has everywhere and that's modern football. The problem for Arsenal fans is they had a reputation for it when the game still belonged to the people, always been soft fans, ask anyone who was around before football sold out in the 90's.
jackstan
To imagine though, scores of grown men heading out to the football on a Saturday, kissing the wife with a piece of celery in their pockets. That they're going to throw at someone. LOL!!! Total idiots.
Tony Rocky Horror
heh even our resident spud puts the boot in! it is sticklebrick bridge - even Boltons ghastly ice rink style effort is easier on the eye.
nikolaijns
Wow jackstain you really are such a hard man, we're all weely weely impwessed here, are you jason Marriner in disguise?
nikolaijns
Spud, i wouldn't bother, you will be lucky to have Europa football next season, you couldn't beat us for 20 years and you have been in our shadow for a long time!
jackstan
Wouldn't expect a yid to get the celery thing, it's just a laugh, don't be such a pretentious **** and you might understand, some of the best traditions are the most random.
jackstan
Jackstan, I guess our fans will just have to be happy with traditionally being known as Gooners rather than Celery throwers. You got me on The Liquidator though. What genius at Stamford Bridge wrote that one into the rich tapestry of Chelsea history? He should be knighted.
Wyn Mills
Real men fight with fists and feet. Losers do battle with wilted vegetables. Tell me, if things got really nasty would you ever consider tooling up with a piece of cucumber?
Tony Rocky Horror
Wasn't it turnip throwing when Ken Bates was around?
Wyn Mills
lol oh no now you've got tony going all internet hard man, this is less intimidating than a Harry Hill fight. Obviously celery is very important to jack so maybe we should start a petition to get a statue erected outside stamford bodge of a large leafy stalk? Maybe it could have Romans face and be brandishing a bag of roubles?
nikolaijns
Do u not think it's a great pre match song Mills? We got the Liquidator in 68, a year before it's official release, the SB DJ had SKA connections in Jamaica, SKA was popular in that part of London at the time and it's been our anthem ever since, proper history and tradition that is. What do u play? The Emirates theme tune? Tony, when the fighting was happening, the yids were nowhere, you became a force when it no longer mattered. There's plenty evidence on Youtube of Chelsea taking the ***** at WHL, on and off the pitch. Now CCTV is here and the stadiums are all seater, Spurs are the big boys LOL.
jackstan
Sounds perfect. 'Lett uce' do it. Will you jack?
Tony Rocky Horror
Stop trying to chat me up Tony, i'm not that way inclined.
jackstan
Ahhha yes, Chelsea with their SKA connections, their cultural heritage. Would this be the same Chelsea who have been, and are, notorious for their links to some of the most violent right-wing groups imaginable? Combat 18 for example? Jamaica! Bah!! Your first ever black player used to have to duck the abuse hurled at him when he was playing on his own home ground!! Pffftttt!!! LOL!!
Tony Rocky Horror
This is all ducking the main issue here. Do you want a giant statue of a stalk of celery with Romans' gangster mug on it outside your shanty dosshouse or f:u.ckin what?
nikolaijns
Celery and chants. Just about sums Chelsea's history up, don't you think? Kind of ironic you having a reggae song as an anthem when your club used to harbour the most racist scum in the league.
Wyn Mills
Sums our terrace history yes. On the pitch we beat Real Madrid in the CWCF. First English club to win 2 CWC, 1 League title, 3 FA Cups, great players like Greaves, Osgood, Tambling, Cooke, Nevin, Dixon, Zola, Bonetti and Harris. The team of the 60's was very talented, in fact we won every game against Arsenal from '65 to '70. That side was on the verge of winning the treble one season but they fell at the final hurdle. We were the nearly men but we had some good entertaining size through the years. Harbour the most racist scum? That's not true, most of the hooligan groups were racist, not just Chelsea, that's the lumpen proletariat for you.
jackstan
First and only English club i should say!
jackstan
*sides. The skinheads of the 60's were not actually racist, that's why they embraced SKA, it united black and white people. You still haven't told me your pre match song? LOL, plastic club.
jackstan
Used to Wyn? Even in the recent spuds v chelsk cc final a couple of years ago Avram Grant and his father were on the end of some vicious anti semitic abuse from the chelsea. Against their own manager. Shameful.
nikolaijns
So out of the 60000 at the Emirates not one is racist? I bet most of them posh **** would move if a Nigerian family moved next door. Chelsea has a very small minority of racists, like EVERY club. Preston NE gave racial abuse to a player warming up at the weekend but nothing was said about that. Is this the best u come up with now you're out of the title race? Chelsea are fascists LOL.
jackstan
I see Rapist Van Persie spat at Taylor post match, scum!
jackstan
Wenger blabbering the same old excuses, shoulda, coulda, woulda, LOL, he is so blinkered and starting to lose the plot.
jackstan
No we're just pointing out the truth to your rainbow reggae loving jackanory whitewash. There's racists at the grove sure there is out of 55,000 there's bound to be. But I don't hear sectarian crap sung in our boozers, y'know the stuff that makes you & Rangers so tight? The anti Catholic crap. If we got in a Jewish manager there wouldn't be filth and threats sent in like there was when Grant took over. It's not a small minority. Wherever you see the word headhunters then sure enough combat18 aint far behind. I came to terms with us not winning the title weeks ago so please don't take that as a reason. Anyhow turn the light off after you lonely lad & keep posting your vitriolic tosh if it makes you feel better. Night night celery f.u
nikolaijns
Niko, forever a classless club with classless fans - No matter how much money the russian mobster throws at them. See, we have more than one prematch song, and even songs for different players, because our fans are intelligent enough to learn new lyrics.
Wyn Mills
And if you have trouble sleeping Jack, just count the celery sticks thrown by the racist hooligan from the top window of the holiday Inn window behind your Lego stand.
Wyn Mills
Songs for different players? What a unique concept that is HAHAHA, u joker. A group in a pub wow, out of the 40000 at SB every home game, that's significant. It's not a small minority? HAHA the headhunters are hardly a big chunk of our fan base are they? Only a moronic sensationalising **** would say that.
jackstan
MOTM jackstan.
MaLaYaNtrueBluE
For a nice insight into Chelsea's luvvy duvvy, all embracing terrace history, I suggest reading (which will be a stretch for you jackstan, but get your mum to read it to you our something) Paul Canoville's autobiography Black and Blue.
Little Dutch
That was the 80's, people in general were more racist back then, every club had a racist element, all the black players in those days suffered abuse. I've been going to Sb for 20 years and never heard a racist comment, that's the truth.
jackstan
Jackstan - so much wrong with your post I don't know where to start. Liquidator? About 5 grounds throughout the country play that, Baggies and Burnley for a start. Arsenal never having a loyal support and 'soft fan base' - really? Ever? Do your research and talk to people that've been there instead of reading all the publications from Mariner and the like. You had a good reputation in about 2 cities, Leeds & Cardiff, ask proper Mancs what Arsenal were like, or Boro, or a lot of Midlands clubs. And you can stick your effin celery up your arse, mug.
shewore
Been going 20 years and never heard a racist comment?? bahahahaaaa - absolute liar mate, that's any ounce of credibility you could've had there gone. You either are deaf, or are in the corporate boxes.
shewore
Grow up people. Please...
Strapping Blue
Only thing 'unique' about Chelsea is the obscene amount of cash they've thrown away buying a few titles. Now their fans talk about history and tradition like they actually know what it means. Their history is predominantly one associated with racist hooliganism. A team who had never won title for half a century after they were formed (and owed that to an ex-Arsenal player), who try to sweep incidents like players shooting students under the carpet, who have dallied with financial and moral bankruptcy more times than Donald Trump. Not surprised they're gloating. They've never been a club with any class.
Wyn Mills
And Jackstan, Why do you have to always pick a fight ?? You are embarrassing yourself and all other Chelsea- fans !
Strapping Blue
Jerkstain has spent more time on this site than his own. I suspect some serious underlying inferiority issues.
Wyn Mills
And wyn mills, " Only thing 'unique' about Chelsea is the obscene amount of cash they've thrown away buying a few titles.

Strapping Blue
Refreshing and encouraging to hear Wenger actually accept the blame for once. Now that wasn't so hard Arsene, was it? We may be getting somewhere at last.
Wyn Mills
SB, You know, I'd rather be discussing my team's performance yesterday than wading through inane verbal banter from Jerkstain about celery throwing. Just put the guy on a leash and we'll all be happy.
Wyn Mills
Do you think Wenger will leave or be sacked ?
Strapping Blue
Neither.
Wyn Mills
Wyn Mills, You are absolutely correct. He will neither be sacked or resign. Arsenal will store him in the broom cupboard and wheel him out when you need another good excuse...lol
Blue_Mel
Come on guys...it's the Spuddies who are supposed to stir nonsense on here. Leave the gooners to discuss their end of season implosion as we were left to our midseason one. Just saddens me that both Chelsea and Arsenal have committed the heinous crime of handing United another title. FFS.
BlueBanes
shewore, 5 other grounds? West Brom and it was banned at Wolves but who got it first? Chelsea of course, it's a Chelsea song. Mills, stop being a moron, every club in the leagues have had severe financial problems, even clubs like United and Liverpool. Chelsea has over 100 years of HISTORY, do you understand what history means? It doesn't mean how many shiny pots you have won, yes there have been ups and downs but we are still a great club with unique traditions and a strong fan base. My Grandad followed CFC for 70 years and left match programmes from the 30's, that's history, you morons that think football began in 2000 don't know anything about heritage. If the club hasn't won loads of trophies, it has no history and tradition? Morons!
jackstan
Ask proper Mancs what Arsenal were like HA HA HA, it's well known that Arsenal were soft, why even contest that fact?
jackstan
BOTTLERS FC! Whoops haha!!!!
P.Avfc
Bottlers indeed, like their plastic fans.
jackstan
Ah bless, the two biggest trolling pillocks on the Vital network have found each other, now you can both skip off to live in whoever lives under the biggest bridge. Newsflash for you both neither of your bottling teams are gonna win f,ck all either. For a villa fan to gloat after their horrorshow of a season is just laughable, sounds like hysterical relief at dodging relegation. Pair of snivelling plums.
nikolaijns
What happened with the quadruple? You are the biggest bottlers in football and your manager has lost the plot.
jackstan
What happened with spending 100 mill on catalogue boy and sideshow bob to win the CL? Bottlers pure and simple. And your manager has the dancing eyebrows of a circus freak simpleton.
nikolaijns
Your CL home leg against utd was so bottley I thought you had changed your sponsor to schweppes. Weak timid bottling submission from your bottley old men, Just like captain caveman bottled your bottley little final in the capital of your gangsters own nation...ohh the shame bet a few bottles of voddy were cracked that night.
nikolaijns
Unique traditions like celery throwing? Lol. You'll be telling us next that Ken Bates once proposed the unique tradition of erecting electric fences to keep all your happy fans penned together. Oh, wait...
Wyn Mills
Treble? Now trophy less? Oooppssss haha!!!! Bottled it against b'ham, then barca and now the league!! BOTTLERS FC!!! Your captains off to barca aswell how do you feel! Haha!!
P.Avfc
Wow still stings that cloggers like Brum won a pot whilst you numpties flirted with the drop eh P? That's the one consolation for us then that a tedious little t1t like you got himself so wound up. Is Nelson from the Simpsons your hero or something? Only a real thicko would come here mocking us for a feat that his own team only ONE YEAR AGO performed exactly the same feat. DOH!!! Goal up against utd in the 2010 final and BOTTLED it. Yep BOTTLED it, slapped a label on it and sold it. TEARS D'VILLA 2010 a fine vintage, to be savoured only in the presence of complete halfwits like yourself. Chin Chin old boy.
nikolaijns
We are aston villa, we don't think we are some great footballing team who plays the best football in the world unlike you. We don't expect to challenge for champions league or the premier league with our current squad where as you lot big yourselves up to be the best team in the premier league when your rivals tottenham are a much better team. Did i mention BOTTLERS? Whooooooppsssss!!!!
P.Avfc
Niko, Luiz will be the best defender in the world in a few years, he can play all positions across the back four and holding mid, what a player and a bargain at 22 million. As for Torres, we have made 22 mill on merchandise already and in the next few years we will cover that 50 million easy. Mills, your fan traditions are electric turnstiles haha, sums it up, plastic soft fans!
jackstan
Ah OK thanks P, you've explained it, it's the bitter little man syndrome, you can downplay yourselves all you want doesn't excuse the fact that your team BOTTLEY BOTTLEY BIG BOLLIX BOTTLED a final from a winning position, worse than us we came from a goal down before our bottling. Your claret and blue smurfs bottled it from a leading position. Just because you yourself spend your entire sorry arse life gloating doesn't mean to say anyone here has, your claims are lies basically. Noone here has ever said we have the best team in the league. You're just imagining things in your twisted hateful little man mind which shows how confused it is in your last statement, much better yet 9 pts behind eh? You're a fool man, a gnarly midget brusing your knuckles on my kneecaps.
nikolaijns
niki how can u say we are bottlers? We have won 3 FA Cups and 3 League titles. We had our worst run for over 10 years but managed to dig deep, turn it around and somehow stay in the title race, going from 5th and looking desperate to 2nd. Chelsea are not bottlers but Ass certainly are, everyone knows it.
jackstan
Arsenal always say they play the best football and have the best business model HAHAHAHAHA! Most plastic fans in England.
jackstan
No Jackstan Hernandez was a bargain at 6 million, what you got was your moneys worth you tiresome braggard. Captain Caveman bottled it Jackstain, the world saw it and knows it, billions spunked by the gangster to reach his holy European grail and up steps Cavey the ironman, skies it, falls over and weeps like a big blue girl, the biggest bottle job in the history of bottling. Ah man how the world laughed.
nikolaijns
It was there for the taking one kick away, 1st London club to ever win it but you B O T T L E D it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBmFBUg-J8k&feature=related ... :-)
nikolaijns
whoopee doo jackstain willy waving over trophies yeah you'll have to wait a little longer to do that so put the chipolata back in the fridge sonny, still 11 trophies behind The Arsenal. Surprising I know given the fact you've walloped the gargantuan proceeds of Russias natural plundered resource and vigorously tickled each others sphinctors with garden produce for a century. yet it's still not enough? Weird that.
nikolaijns
Bunch of bottlers!
P.Avfc
lol little man I've got other things to do so I'm just going to hold your little man head there for a couple of hours whilst I get on and you can continue to swing your little man fists at fresh air K? K
nikolaijns
BOTTLED it i say! Captain cesc is jetting off. Wenger hits the bottle and the arsenal fans cry! Whhhooopppsss
P.Avfc
niko, when u consider Lescott cost more than Luiz, an elite young, ball playing defender with pace and capable of playing in 5 positions, it's good value. Why waffle about where the money comes from? Do u think your one eyed yank owner is clean? All billionaires are crooks but i don't support Roman, i support CFC, as i always have done.
jackstan
** Looks down, sees both little fellas still swinging away relentlessly, rubs both tickly kneecaps and chuckles to self at having wasted the Bank holiday weekend of the two most pointless irksome individuals on Vital **

P.Avfc, I sincerely hope you are no older than 11. Otherwise I pity you.
