Arsenal To Fill 'Empty' Seats

The mighty mighty Gunners are to introduce a 'buy back' scheme next season in order to fill empty seats.

Many fans have noticed, and indeed have commented on the empty seats on match day despite to game being advertised as 'Sold Out'.

The fact is, that these empty seats belong to season ticket holders who can not make it to the game for whatever reason (and lets face it, it will be an exceptional reason not to watch the Arsenal), and now Arsenal are offering the opportunity for these seats to be filled.

I'll let Keith Edelman explain.

"With this scheme, Season Ticket Holders, who are not using their seat for a particular match, will be able to sell them back to the Club after we have sold out and receive payment for the ticket. Then we`ll be able to sell that ticket back to another fan who is desperate to come to the match.'

"It will be an online scheme and we have tried to keep costs down. The purchasers of tickets will pay no premium at all, other than the appropriate administration fee. The seller of the ticket will pay a 10 per cent fee.'

"It is something the supporters told us they were after. It is disconcerting to see some empty seats at Emirates Stadium even if they have all been paid for.
"This scheme allows us to get more tickets to fans who are not Season Ticket holders and allow current Season Ticket Holders to get a rebate back from the Club for those games they cannot attend."

Excellent news and even more opportunities for the hundreds of thousands of Arsenal fans to get to watch their beloved team and a chance for STH's to gain more value for their tickets.

I think it is a very good solution. I love this club.
G4L
btw, lot's of arses on the pics there mr. Mustchin.
G4L
I aint complaining G4L :)
prits
me neither prits, just an observation :)
G4L
I thought a cheerful day deserved cheerful pictures. Arse's all round.
Rocky7
you got my click for that reason alone.
EvertonMike
For a second then my eyes were blurry and the word "click" looked so much like another words I was worried.
Rocky7
I don't understand how charging people to give their ticket back is going to encourage them to do so.
Little Dutch
exactly!!!!
powerspur
THE MIGHTY SPURS WILL RULE AGAIN
powerspur
Because surely it's better to get most of the "match fee" back than none at all?
Rocky7
But I reckon people could flog their tickets for well over RRP, but if they cannae be arsed to do that, I can't see why they would pay a fiver to give it back and not recover their investment?
Little Dutch
Maybe alot of people wouldn't have a clue about "touting" their tickets, and they would feel better about themselves knowing the tickets would be sold at face value to a true Gooner? Also the fact that they can do it over the internet means they wouldnt have to get off their arses.
Rocky7
Chelsea do it through an agency and it works well! (Forget the name though)
merlin
i didnt know if it was an arse or your sausage eating keeper!!!!
madmick1
shame you build a great big shiny stadium but dont fill it, not a bad idea on how to solve the problem . nice arse by the way
MOYES IS GOD
We sell it out, any sell out will have a number of empties, it's just in a 60k they'll be more. merlin, the Chelsea buyback scheme agency, they the ones that hand out pamphlets at Victoria station? Or the dudes that advertise unsold tickets on talksport?
Little Dutch
COYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
patspurs123
I also think that it looks a lot worse at our stadium because our seats are feckin massive.
Rocky7
Well lets hope that some of the extra CASH made is donated to charity
kernowboy
Or maybe we can stick it in a fund as a tax dodge and pretend we've given it to charity?
Little Dutch
Little Dutch, not sure if you have the similar potty mouth as your colleagues but maybe you ought to read the ENTIRE article presented by Independent Giving. Its not a tax dodge - its a way of saving money for the charity, meaning extra money goes to the charity not the chancellor hence it is held in 'trust' - by putting the money into Trusts, Spurs have made sure the money doesn't have to be spent immediately or risk it becoming tax liable and also absorb the cost of administering the trust, the extra money saved not going to Spurs but to the charities. The cash for 05-6 was 4.5m, this year we may give 200,000 or 2m but legally it is now the money of the charity the moment it goes into the Trust. The actual article also makes the distinction between giving CASH and other forms of assistance, as charities welcome all assistance but especially CASH. It mentions that under company law, clubs HAVE to declare all cash donations so unless you have dodgy or stupid accountants the figures are true. It also mentions the other charitable efforts of clubs that they are often a means of facilitating the charitable contributions of others - a club provide support, facilities and players guest appearances but it is actually Joe Public who make the donations. The money has been given to charity (Spurs are absorbing the costs of the Trust administration) and it is a shame that some of you lack a grasp of elementary school economics before offering pitiful, inaccurate and sneering comments. Pillock,
kernowboy
kernowboy, we probably would not have this discussion if ur club hadnt waved that around as if u are holy angels and the rest of us are dirty business people who dont give a damn abt charitable causes. Donations for charities is worthy, just dont see why it had to be a matter of 'oh look so we're so much better than them'.
prits
I think Prits that it actually demonstrates that all football clubs are exceptionally greedy, more so than similar size companies who often have specialist departments that deal with charitable causes etc. My employer has a good causes department and I'm sure others have similar experiences. I have no doubt that Spurs have been just as bad as others in the past but if their move encourages other rich clubs to stick their hands into their pockets rather than merely encourage their fans to stick their hands into theirs then all good - the figures were actually published by an independent organisation so Spurs weren't bandying the figure around. It was a fact picked up by the press and it is not unreasonable that the author took the opportunity for some gentle goading - it was far less offensive than what I've read on the Chelsea page the last couple of days. It was disappointing that a couple of the more clueless and unpleasant of your 'fans' tried to argue with content of the article, to call Spurs fans as 'pondlife' and 'scum'.
kernowboy
kernowboy, are you Sir_Harry in disguise??
hatespur
Well, I know the figures are inaccurate, because I attended a charity event for the David Rocastle fund which raised nearly 70k. Plus, in 05-06 we set up a youth centre in Canonbury, for kids in the local community called "The David Rocastle Centre." In the Man City home game last year, the proceeds from all programme sales went to childline, we sold roughly 30,000 programmes that day at 2.50 each. I don't know which Prem club has actually given more to charity than any other, the point is anyone that crows about giving to charity misses the point in my book.
Little Dutch
Plus, given that the Spuds have raised admission prices AGAIN, putting them in line with more successful clubs like ours and Chelsea, the charity donations are really coming out of YOUR pockets, not the clubs. Hopefully Levy will be kind enough to donate a proportion of the fees he recieves from the sales of Berbatov and Lennon this summer.
Little Dutch
Did Arsenal give 70,000 or did the event raise 70,000? That is the distinction - the whole article if you lot had bothered to read the link www.independentgiving.com said that clubs, althought involved in organising and facilitating charitible works, given very very little cash themselves, and it is hard cash that makes a difference. The figures cannot be inaccurate as they have to be LEGALLY provided by the clubs as companies. Are you saying your club accountants are acting illegally? - the article said that it is a poor effort by clubs and implied that Spurs have taken the first step and started to address this .. of course a Spurs author is going to crow. You lot wouldn't have done the same.
kernowboy
Hatespur, no, but having read that very long thread I do have some sympathy for him ... as well as having been warned who the dodgy people are over here. When I get some fool calling Spurs fans (and implying myself and my family) scum and pondlife because the club have contributed a large amount of cash to charity and put it into a perfectly legal and legitimate financial vehicle to help charities avoid unfairly paying tax which is not 'dodgy', do you not think you will get a response in your page? Looking through our archives you lot seem more than happy to come over and offer your unwelcome opinions with us ..
kernowboy
I never 'come over' and have no inclination to do so. I am an Arsenal season ticket holder and have an interest in all things Arsenal, so a scum site is totally irrelevant for me. As for 'unwelcome opinions', the term pot and kettle shouldn't be lost on a man capable of reading the Independent. Voyeurism isn't my thing, but hey ho fill your boots pondlife.
hatespur
I think people who criticise others who donate to charity are the real scum and pondlife :)
kernowboy
It's not a cxriticism of donating to charity, it's criticising those who use it as a vehicle for one upmanship, you have to admit that's pretty poor form. I congratulate Spurs for raising that money, really I do. The point is that all of that money hasn't been distributed in the 05/06 season, which makes the "charity league table" a little distorted. I think you know that nobody referred to Tottenham as scum for doing this, it was a reference to the vomit inducing tone of the author. The Rocastle paphlet I have says, "all funds will be donated to the David Rocastle trust." Our point is, charity is it's own good reward. One of my favourite author's Albert Camus put it best when he said, "too many dispense with genorosity to practise charity."
Little Dutch
as much as i love the team, i don't like the admin side of the club. i have a mate, who in his complete lost state of mind, forgot to go up to arsenal last season to chose his seats for AG, he was away.. he phone up and they said tough, you now have to go to the back of the queue ! now bearing in mind this guy is a photographer, and has done quite a bit of work for arsenal, i thought the treatment of him was poor :( also, i have sold my ticket to mates alot of times, and my ticket is worth around the 80 ish mark per game, i couldn't ask my mates for that amount per ticket and ususally settle around the 60 mark, so for me to lose 10% would be a good thing, but if it was a say Man USA or Chleksi game and for some strange reason i couldn't make it, then i would be selling it to some city boy who doesn't care how much and making a nice tidy some !
PUREGOLD
I don't either puregold. In fact, I said as much in an article, and the club phoned me up and started hassling me, so eventually I went and met with supporters services before the Reading game because they didn't like what I had said. I know people whose appointment was scheduled for the day we played Spurs away last season, while the game was going on. As they are on the away scheme, they already had tickets and asked to rearrange. The club said no, and if they didn't keep the appointment they'd go to the back of the queue! P.S I'm popular with the Spurs lot this week aren't I? The board of education are gonna lobby to have this site shut down by easter :-)
Little Dutch
kernow, your opinion is of no interest to me personally. For your information, nobody has critisised your little club for making donations to charity but merely questioned the ligitimacy of the claim. Maybe if they paid more attention to ticketing and less to charity donations they would sell out for WAFFA cup games and sell more than 27,000 for an F.A cup 4th round tie.
hatespur
Agree LD but the records show that money went into the pot in that season. Next season there maybe a different result (we may give nothing) but it is still shocking to see the small account of cash all clubs donate themselves from their own pockets. The great thing about the trust structure is the money doesn't have to be spent immediately and doesn't get taxed if its not. Therefore charities can save the money for future projects. Also Spurs are paying all the admin costs, and each season can continue to put more and more cash in. The author of the article on 'independent giving' drew the clear distinction between clubs arranging events so people can donate and actually doing the donating themselves. Whilst the tone on the Spurs page was a little glorifying you lot have been having a laugh about the respective price of season tickets. Of course you can freeze yours .. you have a bigger stadium so fans have more opportunities .. Spurs have a five figure sized waiting list so until they expand or build a bigger ground, there will be a premium price on season tickets. Annoying yes but the club would be financially irresponsible not to increase prices if people are prepared to pay more. Demand and supply. Like the housing market, unless you increase the number of dwellings by 50% house prices will increase.
kernowboy
LD, that is Sir_Harry in disguise. Trust me, I recognise the writing style. Somebody said earlier in the week that he'd be re-incarnated. Didn't he refer to you as 'the author' earlier??
hatespur
Hatespur, I was referring to the author of the article in Independent giving - .... a person who writes an article on a website or in a magazine is commonly known as an author. What else is he supposed to be called - a writer person? Were you born an a*sehole or is this a recent development?
kernowboy
F**k me, you really are obsessed with this Sir_Harry fellow ... looks like he did successfully get under your skin .. one or two home truths too many I imagine. All I can say is quodas to the chap
kernowboy
It is a recent devolopment envoked by an intolerable reaction to c****. i think you may have triggered it.
hatespur
Holy *****ballas batman you're right. Luckily, I've already gone into witness relocation. How's things, Harry?
Little Dutch
Little Dutch, why don't you ask him?
kernowboy
Nobody on a web-blog could possible get under my skin kernow. This is a way to make my working day pass a little quicker, no more. I still could n't bring myself to go on a Scum blog though, but as I said if voyeurism is your thing them who am I to pass judgement?
hatespur
Only Sir_Harry could praise the crazy rantings of Sir_Harry. Sherlock Holmes could rest easy on this little conundrem.
hatespur
What are the odds on another 'new' spud appearing in the next couple of days now that kernow has been identified?
hatespur
Having read through that monster of a thread, Sir_Harry was a bloody idiot especially all the offline stuff. At the start were one or two reasonable points until he galloped way off meassage. I have already revealed my true identity on the Spurs page as I am running in this years London Marathon www.justgiving.com/kernowboy - feel free to stalk if it rocks your boat :)
kernowboy
Kernow... Thats nothing to do with Football. ;-)
Jacky B
Hatespur. I visit this blog cos its more fun arguing than patting each others backs!
Jacky B
I'll give you a pound a mile over 27 miles.
hatespur
I have never critisised you for doing so Jacky as you are more than capable of holding your own in a football based argument. Look back and check any football relevent conversations that kernow has constructively contributed to.
hatespur
cheers, it is for a good cause but you want me to run an extra 0.8miles? F**k me, 26.2miles is f**ing far enough:) If you watch on TV I shall be wearing a remarkably unattractive fluorescent number which is seriously unflattering - its supposed to be XL size but has left me looking like a badly packed sausage. I've either be grazing in rather a lush paddock or they were originally designed for the world famous 10km pigmy run
kernowboy
Spurs fans are familiar with looking ridculous in tight fitted shirts meant for 20 y.o athletes though aren't they. Fat, bald cab drivers wearing tight brown shirts, very flattering.
hatespur
"Athletes" like Robbo and Mido?
Little Dutch
Walcott the ultimate athlete - 1 goal. Robbo the Fat git - also 1 goal. (2 in his career)
Jacky B
The Puma one is a pretty tasteful design - though the chocolate one I avoided (what were they thinking?), the Kappa Slapper number was just .... wrong. At least it was tight enough to stop outbreaks of nudity, seen at certain grounds. Why do people you'd pay to keep their kit on, want to get their kit off at the drop of a hat?
kernowboy
Jacky, isn't it BF Robbo's job to keep goals out?? Have you not conceded 44 league goals this season?? I'm glad he is English, gives me another reason not to support the pr***.
hatespur
Hatespur. You are now going to tell me that Walcott's job is not scoring goals, right?
Jacky B
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that makes Walcott the top scoring 17 year old in the top flight?
Little Dutch
Walcott would probably agree that he has under-achieved this season Jacky. it isn't inconceivable that he'll correct that with experience though right? He was 17 last time I looked. Have we moved from the BF Robbo 44 league goals against then?
hatespur
After your recent run of goal scoring your goal difference must be fantastic now. Just for my information, what is your G.D?
hatespur
Sorry Hate. Just checking a few things, and i cant argue with that stat. LD - "top scoring 17 yr old" ............. bottom scoring 12 mil player?
Jacky B
Let me hear you say it then Jacky.
hatespur
-1...-1...-1...-1...-1...-1...MINUS ONE. Surely not.
hatespur
yeah yeah
Jacky B
Au contraire, we've only paid 5m for him as it stands. Rio Ferdinand hasn't scored to my knowledge this season, he cost 30m.
Little Dutch
I would bet he proves more VFM than Rebrov or Chris Armstrong. Or Helder Postiga come to that.
hatespur
Surely some of those add ons are to be paid now that he is a full international and has played in the prem. And Rio.. his job is to stop goals, as you seem keen to point out. Man u have conceded less than you i dare say.
Jacky B
The add ons apply once he has played 100 games for us. Strictly speaking, he is uncapped as a full international. Unlike Wayne Rooney, who at a whopping 31m has not scored in a competitive game for England for three years and has not scored a CL goal for two and a half years. Oh dear, ark at me, I'll have the Board of Education on my case at this rate!
Little Dutch
4 less than us Jacky boy. 24 less than you I hasten to add. If you hadn't conceded 5 against them this season without reply you would have only conceded 19 more goals than them.
hatespur
How many Spurs players have an assist in the C.L Little Dutch? You're good with stats may I say my dear fellow.
hatespur
Does last years final day capitulation count as a C.L assist?
hatespur
Hatespur. Rebrov no doubts. Postiga, enabled us to get mendes who was a good player, and was in turn then sold on for a decent profit. Chris armstrong for a while was a great goalscorer, notching 22 in one season. 15 in the league. The same as Ian Wright that season
Jacky B
does Hleb giving away that free kick count as a CL assist? Also, Walcott ha splayed 1 full international, just prior to the world cup (you get caps for friendlies)
Jacky B
Do you still watch the C.L although you have very little chance of ever being involved in it? I must admit that I haven't watched one WAFFA Cup game this season. No interest. I can't be the only one, don't they screen it on Channel 5 or something? UEFA can't even be bothered to make teams play home and away apparently.
hatespur
You have no interest in Europe at all now that you are out. That might also explain why we are screened on ITV 1
Jacky B
It was a bad free kick to give away Jacky. We have given a lot of silly free kicks away around the box and conceded silly goals from them. Denilson has done it a couple of times against really bad sides where it has proved unimportant.
hatespur
but you didn't heed the warning. And look what happened.
Jacky B
You are right, I have no interest now we are out. But there is always next year. Maybe I will go to the San Siro again or The Santiago Bernabau again or The Nou Camp again or Munich again etc etc. You do get to go to some amazing stadiums in the C.L. What was the name of that lovely little place in Portugal where you lot played.
hatespur
Francis Jeffers anyone - that 'fox in the box'? a bargain at 8m, Richard Wright - a snip at 6m - are we discussing VFW?
kernowboy
In paper 'tis morning, suggestion is 4th CL place will be for FA Cup winners - also that UEFA Cup winners maybe get place in CL Qualifying rounds. Platini's idea. All of a sudden the WAFFA Cup might be more important. Is being done to make sure clubs in 3rd or 4th place in groups give max effort in final group games 'cos if they get into UEFA Cup its another route back into the CL the following season.
kernowboy
What is VFW?
hatespur
It'll never happen fella. The G14 are more powerful than and FIFA president.
hatespur
Also kernowboy, how would that have any effect on you exactly. You last won one of those competitions in 1991 I recall.
hatespur
Oh, have you gone? that's a crying shame.
hatespur
err, let me Wikipedia that ... obviously Value for Money .. isn't Platini the UEFA present ... I think the power of the G14 is over estimated - after all Chelsea aren't there. The TV companies will like it as another cup will be taken more seriously, the leagues will like as there's more opportunity for clubs outside the big 3-4 and their domestic cups will be taken more seriously, the sponsors will like as they feel they get more vfM in a better televised competition - and the argument to the G14 teams will be .. don't you think you can finish in the top3? Looking at the Skysports European leagues, Marseille, PSG, Dortmund, Juventus, Leverkusen and AC Milan would benefit, a third of G14 as all are 5th or lower at present
kernowboy
... but Hatespur, when we win the WAFFA Cup ...... :)
kernowboy
G14 = backscratchers united
Jacky B
kernowboy, the examples you use, doesn't that prove that English players are overpriced/rated? one third of g14 clubs are lower than fifth, which means two thirds aren't. I think i could guess which way the vote would go.
Little Dutch
good point. Reyes 18 mil
Jacky B
Lennon 1 mil Carrick 2.5
Jacky B
Carrick 18.5m, Rio 30m, Crouch 7m, Ashley Young 9m..............................................................................
Little Dutch
Never have said some English players weren't overpriced/overrated -like all players they can be but they can also be bargains; just showing you've had your own costly flops. There have been some great overseas signings and some absolute shockers as well. Could have added Reyes to that list but not sure how much he eventually ended up costing. What Spurs have done recently as JackyB will confirm is that even with our duds we've not actually lost any money on them. How the G14 vote has no binding impact on UEFA - what are they going to do, refuse to compete? .. in fact only England would really be affected because of the Chelsea factor.
kernowboy
They could easily refuse to compete and form a breakaway league of their own. Without the likes of us, Barca, Madrid, Liverpool interest in the CL would wane masisvely. The clubs hold all the aces here, Platini is just a ***** plain and simple. He wants to ban headers for ***** sake!
Little Dutch
LD this could go on all day! i am just trying to highlight you dont have to spend silly money on english men, but if you are too lazy/ not brave enough to take a chance like man u on Carrick, then you do. Same with Lennon, if he were to be sold.
Jacky B
And it was 18.4 for Carrick. Don't forgot the .1. That is a lot of money to you lot these days. apparently.
Jacky B
Have to disagree there Little Dutch. A small break away league will die a lingering death due to lack of competition. FIFA would never sanction it, and as most players would want to continue playing international football as well, they would be barred from doing so outside of their national associations. Apart from winning the league, it would just be a series of glorified friendlies. Most fans after a time would grow bored of the lack of competitiveness, and those teams still involved in competitive matches would be able to sign up players who grew fed up. Of the G14 (should be G18) no country has more than 3 teams as members. If one member has a shocker and is likely to finish 5th or lower, the thinking is they will put more effort in their domestic cup competition, or in the Champions League group stages as finishing third would have an even greater reward. The chances of some sides getting through because they have faced weakened teams is lessened. Would you needing to win to qualify and have another team draw want that other team to face a weakened side as their opponents have only a minimal financial incentive? Making the UEFA Cup something really worth winning will make every game more competitive. Or that at least is the theory ... however like all theories.... :)
kernowboy
Wenger has cosistently bought bad players. Amazing really that he has a net profit, 3 Premiership trophies (2 doubles) and 4 f.a cups to show from his tenure. While you are banging one out over Carrick, think Anelka, think 500th, think 23 million. Petit and Overmars 30m. That is quite a lot of money to us lot these days, apparently.
hatespur
once more, Just highlighting that English players needn't be expensive. And the examples you give, are even worse examples of teams with more money than sense. John Hartson cos 7.5 big ones didn't he? bloody expensive foreigner.
Jacky B
A breakaway league would consist of the same teams that contest the Champions League every year and draw higher viewing figures than any domestic league in the world. I think it would possibly draw more interest internationally than the 7th best team in England playing against a pub team from Portugal.
hatespur
Jacky, you could go on comparing all day but the proof of who has/had the better players is in the trophy cabinet. The only thing of note in your trophy room is ********** hiding from the army as he knows nobody will ever have cause to go in there.
hatespur
Why has that blanked out the name of a terror leader?
hatespur
to dampen the effect of your post! haha
Jacky B
If like me, all your friends already go to the Arsenal then you wont have anyone to sell your spares to, so this scheme is excellent. those who can sell to a mate at above face value will still do so, but those who are lumbered with it can get 90% back and thats a great thing. of course the physical ticket does not actually change hands, they merely de-activate your season ticket and activate someone else's who is buying your seat for the day. well done the club (for once)
gazzap
I might phone up and cancel the whingeing p**** that sits behind me every game.
hatespur
Hatespur, but it won't be all 18 as some will see remaining with UEFA as being to their advantage. Other FAs with a better relationship would prevent their teams signing up, and what of the players being banned from international football? You only get lucrative sponsorship if you can maintain interest and after a season or two, this would fall away as a league of 10-12 teams with only the league to play for would stagnate. Football is too big for clubs doing this to win.
kernowboy
Possibly. It is purely conjecture at present anyway. I personally would like to see clubs challenge UEFA's standing. The same with the F.A.
hatespur
I have my doubts, hatespur. A breakaway league sounds good, but kernowboy (who, if he IS sir_harry, has just undergone a fantastic re-incarnation:) has a point. It is more effective as a threat and nothing more. I have to say every league has its charm coz the big teams also play the so-called smaller clubs (like arsenal vs spurs :). That would be missing in the 'break-away' league.
prits
Jacky - u could come up with very few examples of english players who are vfm, but the odds are that there would be a lot more who are expensive. The price for some of them like Bale (who spurs also seem to be eyeing) are quite simply ridiculous for someone who hasnt proven himself yet. Bent, Young, Carrick...... I could go on.
prits
Well as I have apparently been knighted in less than a week - I will now be devastated if I am not a Lord by Easter. Am a bit concerned about this 'Harry' bit though - people might think that James Hewitt is also my father (allegedly)
kernowboy
by christmas you'll be king Kboy! in that case viva la revolution!! :-)
kenny lunt
clearly kernowb is not sir-H. He has a sense of humour.
G4L
perhaps i have an allie?
Jacky B
Yeah, G4L, who would have thought there are 2 spuds out there like that? Shocking :)
prits
Allie? as in Alison? Nope, wedding tackle, meat and veg all present and accounted for
kernowboy
OH my god, sir_harry is back. : p. Look at how english players are protected.Shevchenko came from another culture, another team , another philosophy , and struggled to play decently.Wayne Rooney came from ANOTHER english team, is playing like ***** now, and no one says anything.That's a good example.
k_chelski
K_chelski .... who? Bit stupid to call yourself after a name used as a a term of abuse and derision isn't it? ... whilst I'd like to take credit for being such a popular person, regretably a case of miistaken identity p.s what on earth are you wittering on about .. I think you're on the wrong thread!
kernowboy
Funny how i never said you were sir_harry.Not the smartest are we? lol. Oh boy, i guess you don't have humor after all.Why on earth would you think i'd call myself chelski ?You being a spud and all, i'll let you ponder about that.I always talking about english players, who are expensive, and very much protected by the media.Sir_harry, i thought you was smarter than this.
k_chelski
..... err, I actually didn't understand a word of that at all. As mentioned before, I signed up the start of the week, so if you want to knight me fine, but I'll expect to be a lord by easter ... what English players being protected? .. I could understand if you are Blues fan you'd refer to the chavs in your name, but why a name used to abuse your club? Are you English, 'cos you are fairly incoherent? .. oh and as I was the last person before you, I assumed you were trying to refer to me ... its pretty stupid confusing someone with a different person wouldn't you say?
kernowboy
Hahaha.I didn't understand a word of what you said as well.Are you english ? Because you asked me if i was incohorent , you inexpicably used "half ellipsis" , so in a 118 page article, you were the only one i could've referred to ? Oh little child, you and sir_harry, were the only ones that asked me, why the hell do i use chelski.ALL THE other people in vital network get it.See the similarities ?
k_chelski
No, I get why you use Chelski, moron. It would like me calling myself Spudboy or are you so stupid you don't get that? I am sure others must have pointed that out to you. I was the last entry before you waltzed in with your uninteresting opinion ... having read quite a few threads before I joined you are the most boring poster on the entire vitalfootball site. Believe what you want, most of your posts seem to be wildly false and inaccurate and really I have better things to do that waste my time speaking to you. Bye idiot.
kernowboy
and thats actually a lie isn't it K_chelski? 'cos I know when you first started popping up on the Spurs page, lots of fans asked if you knew that Chelski was a term of abuse. Prat.
kernowboy
No it isn't . i recall only sir_harry asking that, but i did suffer racial abuse on those threads, so i prefer not to remember, you don't mind do you?You said before you didn't know who sir_harry was, but now you said you read alot of pages before joining in, did you miss a 300 post article?Who's the liar now. Only you and sir_harry asked that.No it wouldn't.Jesus you are really an idiot.So you read the whole vital network before joining in ?Wow, you have alot of free time.Sure, run along, but please , don't take my job away.Or deport me, or find out what my name is and stalk me. Good day.

I did read the 300 post thread ... what has that got to do with you being called K_chelski? I read a lot of the threads as they are headlined on NEWSNOW ... what else have I asked apart from why you call yourself K_chelski. You are a clown .. answer me this one question? Why have I provided my peronsal details by providing info on my charity running efforts if I was this Sir_Harry bloke? Having made such an effort to brag about how secret he was, don't you think thats a little strange? You don't need to read the entire site. It tends to be just Arsenal and Chelsea and usually only when their fans come over ... most fans, you being the exception, have something interesting to say - and I don't recall you getting any racial abuse, but its a convenient excuse I suppose - you're not getting my support having abused me.

OKay, dude, calm down.You're getting ahead of yourself.I know i have the (marvelous) ability , to instigate huge anger on tottenham fans.You said you read alot of threads before joining , sir_harry was in most of them, before a huge abusive argument that i helped end.I use the name chelski , for pure sarcasm.If you watched a movie named "borat" you'll see alot of anti-semitism , but the irony is that the guy in the movie, is jewish himself.Do you get it now ?IF you don't recall ,read that article again, carefully.Just calm down, if you get mad, the name will stick with you.Duh.

Mmm .. seems like I chose a great time to finally join eh? Can understand while you're not on a lot of Chelsea threads, they have been awful this week.
kernowboy
maybe cuz we didn't play this week ?
k_chelski
surely a big club like arsenal shud b struggling get everyone in
MOYES IS GOD
The tickets will only go down to silver level anyway. There have only been about three or four Arsenal games that went on Red. I reckon they do should do away with membership levels and go back to a first come first serve basis. Charge everyone 50 a season per adult to join. The membership is a con.
