udinese 3-1 arsenal.
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by dayokanu(m): 12:30pm On Aug 24, 2011|
Are we going to see another red card today? Hopefully we do and to Sczezny who would concede a 20th min penalty and a red card to go with it
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by proudly9ja(m): 12:34pm On Aug 24, 2011|
coogar:Dis guy, u dey fear to play Arsenal later on in the competition ni?
I actually dreamt we conceeded another own goal and also by one of our 'new' players. *perishevilthoughts*
No matter what, a draw or a win for Arsenal!
dayokanu:If this happens, Bayern will be relegated this season, trust me

debosky:can i suggest some names for this beauriful association?
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by coogar: 12:50pm On Aug 24, 2011|
there's no english club capable of stopping fergie's man utd in europe. . . . .home/away victories guaranteed!
arsenal fans should be hoping for a loss.
granted, arsenal's season would be tacky but it's been like that for 6 seasons. . . .but this would actually make wenger and the arsenal board sit up and do the necessary changes to completely overhaul the team.
an arsenal victory would paper the cracks like it has been since 2005.
gaynners should open their eyes and think of the long term not the instant Glorious feeling they would get by beating udinese.
beating udinese or not, arsenal have regressed massively. . . . .

coogar:Hoping for a loss? God forbid. A loss won't do us any good. Dropping out of the CL doesnt mean we will play less number of matches as there's still the Europa league to navigate. I'm not sure why anyone (asides ManU fans ofcourse) will wish we lose to Udinese.
Arsenal will qualify.
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by coogar: 1:02pm On Aug 24, 2011|
the goal is not about reducing the number of matches. . . . .the goal is to make the board sit tight and realize the standards have dropped considerably. all these years, the board can't be bothered about re-investing in the team cos wenger kept getting arsenal to the knock-out phases in elite europe. the board are happy with that and they keep the proceeds. . . .which is working against arsenal in the grand scheme of things. . .
getting eliminated tonight would trigger an outcry. . .
the board would then release the funds that would make arsenal stay in the top four this season to automatically qualify for the next champions league and with the quality squad this year, arsenal can then make a proper challenge for the league title from 2012 upwards.
failing that, your trophyless season run would hit 20.
small pain now. . . . .long laughter later. . . . .lose now to win later!
i call it tactical sacrifice.

proudly9ja:lets hope your own reign brings us something
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by proudly9ja(m): 1:17pm On Aug 24, 2011|
coogar:If we are to believe everything Arsene says, then available money to spend has never been his problem. And over the past few months, he has repeated it over and over again.
I don't think dropping out of the CL at this stage will change anything. AW himself has said he is 'looking to bring in players no matter what happens tonight'. If I am allowed, Il add that, dropping out tonight won't make him change his mind on bringing in a player if he had no intention in the first place. I think after the last 6 years, we know that much about our manager. Moreover, its just 7 days to the close of market.
Asides the departures of Cesc and Nasri, there's not much difference this year from other years. Infact, we've brought in more 'first team' players this year compared to recent years. The quality of these players may be debatable but at least we've brought them in. One or two more 'super quality' additions to replace the lost players will take us back to where we were before i.e. a top 4 side capable of topping the table till February
side joke: even if we drop out, Arsene will tell us playing in the Europa league isn't a disaster.

mukina2:By the time we get to the 100th page, we'l be top of the EPL table
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by dayokanu(m): 1:25pm On Aug 24, 2011|
Excellent points. This was what Proudly was telling Debo and co yesterday and they were on riot.
At this stage Arsenal needs a jolt and missing out of Europe completely would do it.
Most clubs have had something similar.
Man Utd in 2005/2006 crashed out of group stage last. That was probably what jolted Fergir and he knew Europe has changed. Gone were the days you would depend on Liam Miller, Barry Ferguson, Darren Fletcher Wes Brown etc.
He went for broke immediately copping Tevez, Hargreaves, Nani, Anderson and other multi million Dollar signings, Gone were the days you can do something in Europe without signing big.
Similar thing happened to Bayern we thought we could patch things up until we were 4th in the Bl and crashed to Europe, It was that incident that led to dumping our average signings and hoping they turn to gold like Ali Karimi, Jan Schlaudraff, Vahid Hashemian, Tobias Rau, Roque Santa Cruz, Valerien Ishmael for marquee signings like Ribery, Lucatoni, Klose later Robben, Gomez, Neuer.
Barcelona too bumped things up after many seasons in doldrums signing many duds like Rochemback, Christanvaal, Quaresma, Sonny Anderson, Giovanni, Okunowo, The Dutch brigade(Reiziger, Kluivert, Bogarde Cocu, etc)
Doing things the same way and hoping somehow miraculously clubs in Europe would go broke or all would have a major disaster to enable Arsenal win wont happen
Even if strict FFP comes into play, Clubs like Barcelona, Man Utd, Bayern, even Porto are better placed than Arsenal
Something has to change at EMirate and best case COACH has to change
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by coogar: 1:30pm On Aug 24, 2011|
the so called ffp is bullshyte. . . .
big clubs will get around it and still spend money.
if platini blocks them, it will be a perfect excuse for the big clubs to form the super league they have always wanted to do.
take the highest spenders)real madrid, barcelona, man utd, chelsea, bayern, etc) out of the champions league and uefa would be as broke as nigerian football federation. uefa need the big clubs, not vice versa.
camp nou's name can be sold to the qataris which would fetch hundreds of millions to barcelona. . . .same as the bernebau or old trafford. big clubs will continue to spend regardless of the ffp.
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by hannie: 1:39pm On Aug 24, 2011|
what amuses me most is that the fake plastic Naija fans rake more than the true shareholders about Arsenal
una just dey shout say WE GO REMOVE WENGER, WE GO SACK WENGER
una think say una okrika Arsenal (02) jersey na hin make you true fans/supporters
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by proudly9ja(m): 1:40pm On Aug 24, 2011|
To be honest, Im not putting any hope on the FFP thingy. People always have a way to go round such rules. I am sure the clubs are currently brainstorming on a way out. I don't know why dudu believes so much in this law.
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by mukina2: 1:42pm On Aug 24, 2011|
hannie:you suppose dey honeymoon jor stop posting
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by proudly9ja(m): 1:45pm On Aug 24, 2011|
hannie:Y u dey talk like this nah, we know how much United got from playing Portsmouth in Nigeria two seasons ago nah. No dey underrate us for Naija o. If Arsenal plans the same trip and gets the same amount, we can buy another Joel Campbell with the money
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by coogar: 1:54pm On Aug 24, 2011|
the lawyers are reading the scripts carefully now, looking for loopholes.
so many ways to play around it and continue the spending spree.
if the owner of man city buys 50 million man city shirts @ £20 pounds per shirt through a 3rd party. . . . .how would uefa know who paid what? city would have banked the money and all of a sudden, city's account is doped up by £1 billion which they would use to buy more players.
another example is city wants to buy messi. messi's wages is 300k per week.
city pull messi's agents aside and work it out to pose for the camera and say they are paying messi 50k per week. . . . .then employ messi's parents/relatives at the etihad stadium and pay them £250k per week. . . . . .how would uefa know who has paid what?
ffp is bullshyte. . . . . . .it's just a hoax for platini to continue to stay as uefa president.
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by folahann(m): 1:54pm On Aug 24, 2011|
Ok, this is true o.
God let Arsenal lose to today so that the club will shake things up
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by dayokanu(m): 1:55pm On Aug 24, 2011|
I am saying even in the best case scenario for Arsenal even if Mao Tse Sung becomes UEFA president, FFP is about developing more youths? Barcelona, Man Utd Bayern, Porto, Lyon do better than Arsenal
Spending what you EARN without Sugardaddies? Bayern, barcelona, man Utd, Madrid, AC Milan, and many clubs earn much more than Arsenal, Have a larger fan base, have bigger stadiums, have better appeal to sponsors, Unless WenGAY starts money rituals or child trafikking, so They lose again.
Putting a cap on foreign players, Arsenal and Inter loses more than any club in Europe
So whats the content of this FFP that gives GAYYners any hope self unless they are just behaving like illiterates they are.
And like you said if the FFP doesnt make sense, The era of G14 clubs come back. I wonder what Platini would be high on to tell Txiki Berigistan, Beckenbauer, Fiorentino Perez, Adriano Galliani, Ferguson, or Rummenigge not to sign the next superstar to their clubs.
They would impeach Platini via text message
Founding clubs of G14
Founding members, 2000
Real Madrid (Spain)
Manchester United (England)
Paris Saint-Germain (France)
Bayern Munich (Germany)
Borussia Dortmund (Germany)
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by coogar: 2:05pm On Aug 24, 2011|
ffp is mumuface's last resort. . . . . .he believes with ffp, arsenal will suddenly become great.
they have the wackest set of english players in their squad. . . . . .they don't make enough money as man utd. . . . . .they have no sugar daddy.
besides ffp would only rule clubs must spend what they earn. . . . . .the owner of man city will be stopped give city £20m to dop[i]e[/i] their accounts, but he can build 5 stadia for man city. . . . .so plenty of loopholes in the ridiculous ffp.
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by dayokanu(m): 2:22pm On Aug 24, 2011|
European clubs will break away from Fifa and Uefa and create their own super league unless the world governing body urgently addresses their growing concerns over international fixtures and finances. It would be the most radical development in the history of football since the first World Cup in 1930, ripping up the established world order of the game and seizing power from Sepp Blatter, Fifa's president.
The above news is less than a month ago.
There goes Duduspace hopes that Arsenal would become a big club.
As long as Rummenigge is alive, Arsenal would always be a small club
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by debosky(m): 2:26pm On Aug 24, 2011|
SMH - so you believe the nonsense DK is spewing?
Losing out on the CL will ONLY cause harm to Arsenal and nothing else.
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by coogar: 2:28pm On Aug 24, 2011|
you are a fool.
which season in the last 6 years was arsenal not in harm?
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by dayokanu(m): 2:39pm On Aug 24, 2011|
Crashing out of CL groups in 2003 caused man Utd a momentary harm but a long term good.
Crashing out of CL in 2008 caused Bayern a momentary harm but long term good
Missing out of CL in 2003 caused barcelona a momentary harm but long term good
I thought y'all were all about the long term here?
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by darefestus(m): 2:39pm On Aug 24, 2011|
Why r u doing this to debo?
He's been through a lot lately and u should cut him some slack.Arsenal should go through tonight tho but afterwards. . .
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by debosky(m): 2:40pm On Aug 24, 2011|
You are a phat phool.
Losing £25m in a time where urgent strengthening of the squad is required via purchases will cause untold damage, not only to current earnings but future earning potential.
A loss in the CL could lead to a dangerous downward spiral - that is an unacceptable outcome for Arsenal FC.
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by coogar: 2:46pm On Aug 24, 2011|
arsenal are not stoke or wigan.
£25m loss will not bring down the emirates. your club makes £100m at the gates.
so what has happened since 2005 isn't a dangerous downward spiral?
if someone told you after arsenal won the 2005 fa cup that the next 6 seasons would be barren, what would you have said?
debosky, you are a fat tool!
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by montelik(m): 2:47pm On Aug 24, 2011|
but I thought AW recently said money for new signings is not dependent on d outcome of today's game.
|Re: Arsenal Fans Thread (for Arsenal Fans) by proudly9ja(m): 2:49pm On Aug 24, 2011|
Are you giving us a clue on wat we should do? we fit send Libyan hitmen go Germany o, all we need to do is tell them Ghaddaffi is hiding in Rummenigge's bedroom
