I know the global economy could use a boost, and sales from whatever DVD Spurs would release if they win tomorrow would help, but they need to get the shite kicked out of them. frick that diver Bale. frick money-grubbing, disrespectful Adebayor. frick Andre Villas Boas, because you've gotta earn that acronym, you bitch. frick William Gallas, because you used to piss me off frequently. frick Aaron Lennon and his stupidly trimmed eyebrow. Just fricking mind the gap, generally.

That place is fanboy central. They don't even understand pop culture allusions to grime beats or the Bader Meinhof movement.

Occasionally, it does provide good links.

Worst thing about /r/gunners is that ridiculous amount of downvotes you get if you even so much as fart in Ramsey's general direction. Not sure why they love him so much.

back when not many people used it (r/gunners), it used to equip me with daily links that I could sling out here and get street cred for it. now that everyone goes straight to the source I'm sorta useless around here. then the mods stripped me of my running pups gif signature. I'm a shell of what I used to be (a slightly larger shell)

Little brother is exactly what they are. I lived in London for a bit that's where my love from Arsenal originates from there, so does my hate for Sp*rs. Adepaymore added gas to the fire.

frick them and UP THE ARSENAL.

The UCL match at Schalke and the Manu match were both attended by Arsenal season ticket holders in town for conventions in NOLA. They both wanted to almost fight people moaning at Ramsey. It was quite a sight.

Shit, Santi's getting paid, but I'm sure he'd like to be back in Málaga. Then again, he seems to be the faithful type (married with chillin's), so, England's a good place to be.

You still sticking with the Ramsey kit lately glass?

Also why is that? I mean I know he's kinda local in that he's from wales... But i don't see the same devotion to Walcott and he's done more for arsenal than most currently on the roster..

Yes.

He has been through more than most young players. I really think Speed's suicide fricked him mentally and the injury was horrific. He is a good kid and could still be a very good player.

I don't get that either. I love Theo and he is our most feared player on the roster by far. Especially in European play.

I agree he could be a good player, but in your honest opinion, should he be in the starting XI in current form?

That is a question all fans ask in any sport. Are we there in training/practice? How do we really know? If he is better in practice than another option of course he should play.

That used to entertain me for hours.

Hours


As for r/gunners, it just seems like it's become a breeding ground for "Hey look at my semi-informed opinion about the fiscal state of the club" self-aggrandizing blog posts barely above the quality of "TOP 5 COMPLETELY UNREALISTIC ARSENAL TRANSFER TARGETS" Bleacher Report drivel.

I know it's a bit premature with the looming Derby clash tomorrow, but I wanted to post this before I forgot.

Wednesday's CL matches for our group, what results do we want? Do we want Olympiacos on the road to draw or beat Schalke which would open back up the possibility for Arsenal to win the group. Or do we want Schalke to beat Olympiacos which would put us into the knockout rounds? Assuming Arsenal at home beats Montpellier of course.

I would hate to have Olympiacos give us hope of winning the group and then us squandering that opportunity needing to draw or beat them on the road at their place and crumble under pressure. I don't know if I want the safe route, or go for top because there are some very good teams who will win their group I want to avoid.

Win the group or not, all rounds are knockout after this. You're better off winning your group, and potentially prolonging your life in the tournament.

Second place plays winnahs.

I would love to win the group and avoid the RM/Barca's, but for that to happen we'd need Schalke to drop points next week which would open up the possibility for Arsenal to not advance if Olympiacos were to beat us. I dunno if I'd rather have comfort in knowing we have advanced, since we haven't had the best results as of late

Good day for our boys. Beating Spurs of course, along with Everton, Newcastle, and Chelsea all losing.
