Frimpong Looking For The Positives

Emmanuel Frimpong believes Arsenal can learn some good lessons from the Olympiacos defeat.

Speaking to arsenal.com Frimpong said some of the best positives were the ever growing experience of the younger lads in the team.

'It was a great atmosphere and it was lovely to be involved. If the likes of me, Francis and Alex can show we can play here, we can play anywhere. I know we lost the game but we have to take positives from it.'

He is a beast but needs to calm down. His silly foul that gave Olypmiacos the free kick cost us the 3rd goal. There is absolutely no reason for the foul as there was no danger. He was lucky not to be sent off with 2nd yellow becasue he committed 2 fouls in a spand of 30 sec.

Sp*rs screwed. haha

I don't expect you guys to exactly 'feel me' but I for one am just loving this. Having to listen to months of the media c*mming all over Manchester and going on about how Wenger and Andre Villas Boas should be sacked etc the sweetness of London carrying the CL flag now is just...so sweet. Fergie's stormout http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/15853955.stm is the icing on the cake.
BlueBanes
oh we're feeling you bluebanes don't worry about that mate ;) Imagine the media frenzy if Wenger or house snakes had stormed out tho eh?
nikolaijns
And barely a word for rednose and his continous James Bluntery in the press (or Kenny "didn't see it" Dalglish). Ha! So who's getting sacked in the morning again? Time for somebody to remix a video of Sir Alex's condescending smirk and walk out with highlights from the Basel game. Soundtracked with "Yakety Sax" of course. ;)
BlueBanes
BB we feel you alright. Now you guys know what we Gooners have been going through for the past 6 years. Even when we are at our best, the press only highlight the negative. About time we stopped worshipping the Manchester(s) and concentrate on the football.

During the game, Jonathan Gills Emails: "Maybe Man United are struggling because the other side look like Barca!". I though, it's true when you look at their home strip. Like Baselona? Hahahahaha!

It was even more satisfying when you think, going into the game, the press carried on like United was certain to get the result they needed. The commentary was patronizing to Fergie, like he had some master come-back plan and everything was under control; and all this when it was clear the wheels had come off on the night. Well, guess what, it's Thursday nights for United in Europe and for those who will suggest United will go on to win the Europa league, they only need to look at the teams in that cup, including their now not-so-noisy neighbours. It is looking bleak for Fergie's side, truth be told.

Thursday nights and Saturday mornings!!! This could do Utd, City should be able to cope with the depth they have. Hold up, out of the carling cup and out of the CL all in one week...isn't that officially a 'melt down'? and when we did it is was a CC final and against Barca NOT Basel!!!
No 10
No10 there is no "melt down". Manchester United does not "meltdown". This is just fact. Meltdown is what Arsenal does, right? Nevermind current form. A bunch of hacks are even rambling on about AVB's paranoid outburst without a word for the victory while others carry on about how rubbish Arsenal's kids were the other night without noting you're the only English side to have had that luxury. Good Lord.
BlueBanes
Mention this failure to a United fan and all they seem to want to bring up is the fact Arsenal haen't won a trophy in 6 years... It's like they going into denial about it. It's quite fun.
FuiKaka
@BB Sorry I forgot we have the monopoly on underachieving ;) And some of those same hacks said at the weekend that ALL English teams were struggling in Europe, somehow forgetting that we had at that point qualified TOP of our league WITH a game in hand....who hires these people? I read a Chelsea match report that purely focused on Drogbas' imminent departure and nothing on a very good performance under a lot of pressure. This is what happens. We got it after we started playing well and picking up point all that was reported was that RvP was off to City, Wilshere will go to Madrid blah blah blah @FuiKaka Man U fans are reminding me of David Cameron: every time their recent failings are mentions they just point out our failings from years gone by.
