Totally disagree. People talk about 40m quarterback balls as if they are easy or somehow vulgar but never seem to mind them done by a Gullit or a Veron. Thought Henderson had a good game and given that most of our many chances came from using width to get through the Tunisian defence it was right to try and get it out there and the LAST thing I wanted to see was the largely unwanted Jack Wilshere working his way industriously through the middle before falling over/diving/grimacing in agony as he twisted his ankle.

Overall we played better than Brazil did in their game (hugely overrated side including the tiresome Neymar) and while we tired in the second half it was great to see a team managed by a thoughtful and likeable guy who at least had given some thought to tactics - you lot are like the bloody English who moan and bitch when we get a bit of sun that it's too hot.

Enjoyable game, my daughter's first World Cup game and had the ultimate football joy of an injury time goal for her utter incredulous delight.


Disagree with what - sterling's game is going past people - Vardy's is latching onto to long balls and larruping into the net - don't think Wilshire would have helped either - you cock womble


First off I don't deal with *%^@ who use phrases like cock womble or *%^@ puffin. It violates the whole point and beauty of swearing - short, sharp Anglo-Saxon jabs - and is largely for students.

Having cleared that one up, Vardy's game is being a rat-faced racist scummer and not much else.

As for Henderson the whole point is he wasn't just lifting it over the top for a runner he was finding players in dangerous positions with some long passes something I consider a recherché art and not route one predictability.

Oaf.*

*Didn't there used to be a carrot-based insult too? I distinctly recall something about carrots unless it has all been a dream.

To be fair I love Sergio Ramos. A great player. Unlike Jordan Henderson - an average and uninspiring player.

I too thought England were excellent for the first quarter. Trippier was excellent and I was hugely impressed by Loftus Cheek when he came on. Despite being a 'spud' it's hard not to like Kane and despite doing the square root of *%^@ all for almost the whole game he has a nasty habit of scoring in every *%^@** game he plays in. Rather annoyingly for a world class supporter it is disappointing that this England team and manager is in fact quite likeable. Still hope yis go out on penalties though..

Steve Bould is still assistant head coach along with Carcedo.

Be interesting to see if he is visibly more vocal.

It will also be interesting to hear if he is audibly more visual. Time will tell.

Good. It would have been very unfair to tarnish him with the awful defending these past few seasons given Wenger's reluctance to give up any responsibility.

Anyway, time for Russia v Egypt. I still love the World Cup

No it was definitely Abu who was the carrot cruncher not me. Is it because he’s a ginger?

On arsenal.com now as well. Another signing I haven't watched but who looks like the right profile. Was a big talent from a young age, been a regular in Bundesliga for years but is only 26. Leverkusen has been a regular top 5 club with him as their starter, so he can't be that bad.

Wilshere officially leaving. I think it's probably the right move for both him and Arsenal, but still sad to see him go. Such high hopes for him when he first broke through. If not for all the injuries he could've been the best English midfielder of this generation.

I'll second that.
Remember his performance in the Nou Camp when he stood toe toe to with that legendary Barcelona midfield, it really looked as if he was a superstar in the making. Hope it goes well for him wherever he ends up.

Sorry to see Jack go.

Wenger destroyed him by continually over playing him when he was in the red zone and created a perpetual series of injuries that reduced his ability.

#merci Arsene

I don't even think this is a rose tinted view, he really WAS that talented. But he's missed entire seasons because of injuries, that would hamper the development of any player.

For me, this means an open squad place where we could sign someone who could actually be a player for our starting eleven. Don't think Wilshere could ever be more than a squad player at Arsenal at his current level.

Wilshere off, sad to see him go but with his injury history it’s the right decision. If we saw his performances for any other prem side this season we wouldn’t be screaming to sign him.

Frustrating that it is another player gone for zero money. Probably could have got £20m for him with a couple of years left on his deal. Hopefully with the shake up behind the scenes this should be the last of our players to leave for free or vastly reduced fees.

Saw this on twitter, all these players have gone in the last 12 months.
Sczcesny, debuchy, Gibbs, Gabriel, per, coq, Cazorla, Walcott, Wilshere, Sanchez, Giroud.

Sad to see Jack go, but he simply wasn't going to be first choice at the club. The fact is, though more tactically intelligent, he's less of a player now than he was at 19 because injuries have robbed him of his acceleration and ability to beat players effectively. A shame as I think he could still have been a useful player, but his comparative lack of athleticism was always going to count against him with Emery's managerial style.

Yet another player who could have been a world beater to have been diminished due to injury, mostly bad tackles. Diaby, Gibbs (by a young Mangala), Wilshere, and perhaps even Ramsey were all stunted by broken limbs that were solely the result of bad tackles, not to mention 2007-08 where that young team was kicked from pillar to post and ultimately fouled out of the title winning position they were in.

The legacy of stone-age English refs on Arsenal Football Club. Wilshere should have been dominating England's midfield, and had he been playing in Italy, Spain, France or Holland, the chances are he would have had less than half the injuries and a much better career to date.

So much for the British (and homegrown) core....

His two worst injuries were directly the result of bad tackles on him....

I'd get rid of Bould , not much of a bloke in my opinion .

Reasoning ....... if he did have any input as far as the defence is concerned ... he's sh***&&%t

and if he didn't ; it means he's spineless and been content to sit around for how ever many years picking up good money for doing what ....?


Just read a book " 50 people who stuffed up South Africa "

Rudolf Straeuli the Springbok coach 2002 - 2003 must have been an extreme nutcase .... took the squad to a police training camp , stripped them naked to crawl over gravel , then into a freezing cold lake still naked to pump up rugby balls.

Anyone trying to exit had live ammunition fired at them .All this in an attempt to harden them up ...team bonding

Paid dividends too ..... :laughing7: record away losses 10 - 30 v France , 6 - 21 v Scotland , 3 - 53 v England
Home 16 - 52 v the All Blacks at Loftus Verswald ....and for all this he got a 2 million rand golden handshake when he was sacked .

Interesting day now the Sampdoria president has said that Torreira has been sold for 30million euros to us but we are also being linked with Ever Banega now who played for Emery at Seville.

Interesting times and reminds me of when Wenger joined and we started signing all these players we never heard of like Grimandi, petit and Anelka and wondered how they were being planned to be fitted in.

We fired our osteopath and travel manager! For some reason that made
me laugh and reminded me of the time when that vigilante group in Portsmouth found the home address of a paediatrician and smashed his windows.
