if we have 10 million Gunners in Naija, we should also expect 20 million gunner haters in naija. Amodu & Grizz, can't u guys read, No univited guest.

But to be sincere, Arsenal will find it tough this season, but hey, its the premiership and we still have Wenger, so Gunners For Life!!!!!!!!!!!!
Re: Arsenal Fan Thread: For Gunners Only (Old) by amodu(m): 3:39pm On Jul 05, 2006
This is not the matter of haters is just the truth.
Re: Arsenal Fan Thread: For Gunners Only (Old) by under18(f): 12:05pm On Jul 07, 2006
Arsenal will win all those matches.
where are gunners? come out and comment
Re: Arsenal Fan Thread: For Gunners Only (Old) by loyika(m): 3:02pm On Jul 07, 2006
Why are you all scared, we have been here before and for the past 8/7 years have not been anywhere below 1st or 2nd in the prem, the year we struggled we got to the final of the CL and came 4th. smiley

So this is one big yawn. Football is played on the pitch and not with the mouth, if so Fifa should have just given Brazil the WC before the competition started, but like i said big yawn!

But oh well if you insist grin: Competition

A.

Man U where do i begin, Ronaldo vs Shrek (Ronney), Ruud Vs Fergie, Fergie Vs USA OWNERS, USA owners vs ManU fans, you catch my drift.

B.

Chelski, Roman and the Russian mafia cool vs the whole squad if they don't deliver the CL this year, not even winning the F.A. cup will be good enough.

Maureen will finally destroy Sheva and ballacks careers by forcing them to play Chelsea's brilliant beautiful version of football (i am asleep already ZZZZZZZZZZZ cry)

C.

Liverpool, well they are still looking for a decent striker, maybe extend rob fowlers contract by 3 more years. cheesy

Every1 at the Kop is practising Crouch's Robkop dance , so prepare yourself for a lot of this next year. cheesy

Stevie G will always want to take a penalty now!! so expect much diving from the reds. cry

D.

The Spuds (Spurs), well they are still in shock that they came 5, so i guess they are ready to go back to their normal position of 8-12 on the league table. cheesy

All in all this season will be ok, expect the normal defeats at Old Trafford, the Reebok, and Maybe Blackburn cry, We will throw the game at the brigde away, so that we won't get to see Drogba's ridiculus dance steps when he scores smiley, customary draws at the kop, S*@t hart lane and away at Boro sad. And no loss at the Grove next year grin, we have the Arabs by our side, as in EMIRATE STADIUM/AL QUIEDA, and you don't want to F@*k with that!!! cool

Oh well!!! 1st or 2nd will do nicely thank you, as New Edition will say "Yeah!! it feels so good to be back where we belong" cool.

Adios Amigos (GONNER 1989 TILL I DIE)

Looks good, we'll kick ass, got my season ticket grin
Just thinking, Juve is in a lot of trouble for alleged match fixing, they could be relegated grin grin grin should we take Viera back or let him go down with them? cheesy
Re: Arsenal Fan Thread: For Gunners Only (Old) by kitaun(m): 3:22pm On Jul 07, 2006
loyika,
u wan kill dem with dat ur kind of analysis abi na wetin,i trip o cheesy cheesy cheesy
Re: Arsenal Fan Thread: For Gunners Only (Old) by loyika(m): 3:49pm On Jul 07, 2006
No Mr Kit, its just that when you watch the league game in game out every year, since i don't know when, you get bored with the constant analysis, where as the table always stays the same at the end.

This year was quite interesting because i honestly couldn't tell where Arsenal would have ended up last season ( i was actually looking up the names of stadias in the 1st division angry Yes it was that bad!? just in case we were relegated, the way we were playing )

Do you actually think Wigan will be challenging for a top three position this year ( i rest my case )

And Mr Shag, the difference btw PV4 and the proverb of Prodigal son is that with the prodigal son the Father actually wanted him back cheesy Expect to see Camara's bros with Real Madrid, cause Cesc is the new number 4, and if real (MAD)rid can not poach him from us, well they will prob get viera instead.

But as they say, "if it ain't PANADOL!?, " U know the rest.

And they said only naija peeps like TOKUNBOH, ABEG JARE!! cool

Re: Arsenal Fan Thread: For Gunners Only (Old) by loyika(m): 6:08pm On Jul 07, 2006
Not to defend myself to any1, but Mr Bear(Grizz) did you start watching the english league when it became the premier league, cause thats what it seems like.

I feel in love with Borin Borin Arsenal!!! from 1989, Under George G cause Wrighty n ken Campbell were the main black guys representing in the league at that time, besides Incey, but as i said i hate Man u,

Been a registered member of the ARSENAL CLUB since 1991, and a member of AOTV, (Actual watch some matches on my PC at work!! Cool i can tell u).

Have enough Arsenal memorebila to start a museum, (still need to get Myles Palmers "THE PROFESSOR". But funnily enough i have Alex Fergie's Auto bio (why i ask myself!? undecided)

So i guess i can say something objective about the league.

Shocking for you to believe, i know Nigerians that have actually been supporting their individual teams since the 70s and 80s, before all these so called Gen X wenger babys, but i ain't mad at ya!!

I Love ARSENAL TO MY BONE MARROW, Love God more but then again, that not a fair comparism is it.

Too bad i can't be at the Grove for the new season, Imagine me telling my boss that i had to travel, then he sees me on the telly being in the stadium, (Can you say sack letter!!)

Oh well if i am not there, haven't been to an Arsenal game for 3 years now actually!!, my spirit always goes with the team. FOR BETTER OR WORST, IN RICHES AND POVERTY, WITH WENGER OR NOT, TILL DEATH DO US PART, OR WHEN OLD TRAFFOD GETS BLOWN APART BY A RELIGIOUS EXTREMIST!! grin

till next time Grizzly take thing easy!! cool

GONNER 1989 (And i didn't stutter!!)

Re: Arsenal Fan Thread: For Gunners Only (Old) by loyika(m): 12:36pm On Jul 08, 2006
Mr Bear!! for someone who hates Arsenal so much, you seem to enjoy spending time discusin Arsenal issues, It's like some one who hates his neighbour so much, but gets so mad if that same neighbour forgets to invite him for a function. shocked

Maybe you need to listen to the advice of your manager " THE CHOSEN 1" n stop bein a Vouyeur!!! cheesy

Anyway its all for fun, i really do not think we get the scenario of the whole hatred thing. Its just in naija, every1 just wants an excuse to hate the other, but here goes; Arsenal supporters do not really hate Chelsea!! NO SERIOUSLY!! well pre maureen that is angry cause Chelsea has always been our wife, "sorry for sounding so sexist". On the other hand we can't stand Tottenham tongue. N WE ABSOLUTELY DETEST AND LOATHE MAN U, but i guess the feelins are mutual cheesy

Now Chelsea's hatred comes more with West ham, well since most of the Chelsea stars are all West Ham rejects anyway, Lamps, coley and so on.

So you see we absolutely love Chelsea cheesy, we just wish that you guys would jus stop this women's lib thingy sometimes and be a good sport and jus cook dinner or wash our clothes and while ur at it lose 3 nil to us anytime we play u, now my dear is that too much to ask. As it is said in the bible, and i quote " wives be submissive to your husbands!!" wink {i do apologize if i am sounding so sexist oh!!}.

So Mr bear!! You see no need for all the huffing and puffing, cause it will take you guys more than a russian billionaire, an exotic dancing manager and words fail me for Peter Kenyon!! angry to ever get as much history as fulham in london, let alone the league, so just keep up the momentum, we Gunner wish u luck!! cheesy

Come to think of it, this your hatred thing is so sweet AAAAAAHHHHHH cry cry just makes us Gonners want to grab our tissues. BLESS YOU!!
Re: Arsenal Fan Thread: For Gunners Only (Old) by Grizzly(m): 12:42pm On Jul 08, 2006
U know loyika, i enjoy reading ur postss cos i see brilliance and enthusiasm in them, tongue tongue
I have always hated arsenal, thumbs down to teary hurry,
We are al entitled to our views, and thats mine so wha'ever. . . thanx. cool
Re: Arsenal Fan Thread: For Gunners Only (Old) by mukina2: 12:46pm On Jul 08, 2006

Gunners 4 life
Re: Arsenal Fan Thread: For Gunners Only (Old) by loyika(m): 1:00pm On Jul 08, 2006
Mr Bear!! you insult me sad I never said that you are not entitled to you views!! please feel free to hate who ever you want, more grease to you elbow. Personally i can't stand that El Rufia guy, but guess what!? I don't think he cares " as he drives past me in his tear rubber hummer jeep, and i yell at the top of my voice, I HATE YOU MR RUFIA!!!", PLS FEEL FREE TO READ BTW THE LINES.

So this is a beautiful forum to express our views freely, and like i have said we are in a democracy. So Mr Bear hate arsenal as much as you want and your body can take, but like El Rufia in his hummer jeep, WE ARSENAL FANS CANNOT HEAR YOU!!! grin
