West Ham & Hleb

Gooners

A satisfying win at West Ham. An incredibly stupid challenge on
Hleb. I have never hide the fact that he has been my favourite
player since he joined Arsenal, so it will be disappointing not to
see him in the CL. I can't still fathom how commentators can call
those challenges `passionate'. Wait until someone does that to
Rooney during an international match, I am sure Sky will be up in
arms. They already missed the two `stamps' on Cesc's head. This is
ridiculous.

I subscribe to the argument that Arsenal players' do have their
share of poor tackles. Flamini was a case in point but it was the
foot trying to take the ball rather than the entire bodyweight
behind a flying tackle. I am not condoning Flamini;s tackle but in
terms of severity, it can be career threatening which is not what
you want to see.

I thought Arsenal lost a little bit of creativity and an outlet when
Hleb left. Goes to show how important players like Rosicky and Hleb
are to the team. Granted Diaby and Eboue did pretty well, but there
is no denying Rosicky and Hleb's worth when they are playing
together. Those two can interchange easily whereas Diaby or Eboue
wouldn't be able to provide such flexibility.

Another positive factor is that we are collecting full points when
lady luck is with us. Freddie's `goal' was reminiscent of the good
old days but sometimes you create your own luck or ride it whichever
you think is more suited. We rode ours and got full points from
it. Manure is currently riding on a wave of good luck as well so
hopefully when things come unstuck, they go through the same spell
as us.

While many would castigate Senderos, I think he did well. He never
had any pace, and would not suddenly become turbo charged in his
career. But we need his dogged defending in the EPL. We tend to
defend better on set pieces when he is playing and I am sure Wenger
realise that.

Also, a word of praise to Flamsters for his performance so far. I
thought he could carve a career at Arsenal but more of a Gilles
Grimandi fold than anything else. But he has shown why Wenger
brought him to Arsenal. His humbleness in doing all the dirty work
for more creative players to flourish is certainly welcomed.
Further, I admire his attitude in standing up for the team. We need
players like this.

Senderos was a day dreamer in last season conceeding silly goals..but so far this season he seems to be a different player but still struggling to mark against players like dog..bah...
Toure was a something like that a few seasons ago.....but look wat a solid player he is now, one of the most consistent centre back in Europe...I believe Senderos will follow his suite soon. He is just 21 now and give him 2 more season he will prove to be a worthy player.

Vincent, the worst ever arsenal player of all time belongs to Cygan.....Senderos is much better than cygan....

I know that there can be only 1 worst player, but I have a few
candidates to fill that pretigious position.

1. Franny "fox in the box" jeffers
2. Oleg Luzhny
3. Igor Stepanov

haha..i remember we talking about this not too long ago...

my opinion (which i'm entitled to)...

Senderos actually ok, quite solid, but when he makes mistakes it is normally a big one that costs the team, and that's what ppl zero in on, the mistakes...and admittedly, he is quite slow. A big man who is slow is deemed clumsy...kesian dia...

but no la, he can't be the worst arsenal player u've seen. unless u've nvr seen stepanovs or cygan...

I guess everyone has forgot why we sang Phillip Senderos - Lalalala, x 2..

Look back at his wonderful SOLID performances in the final year at Highbury. I was lucky enough to catch him play and he was amazingly solid. Or did you guys already forget that his antics also helped us to a few goals that season. There is a reason he is Number 6 and I think only time will show.

He does amazing for Switzerland (CONSECUTIVE clean sheets until he got injured in the World Cup) so there must be some good somewhere...

Worst must be franny jeffers...even Cygan managed to score a few before....

I think the worst ever Arsenal player belongs Igor Stephanov ;-) He
conceded 6 goals at Old Trafford, remember??

To say Senderos is the worst ever arsenal player is ridiculous IMO..Even
though he looks doggy sometimes, we managed to keep clean sheets when he
plays..

Toure + Senderos better than Toure + Gallas...

Gooner 4 life..

Hi all,

Hmm there is no live or delay telecast of tonight's match Arsenal v Steaua
Bucharest. What is happening to ESPN? They telecast other matches but it
seems Arsenal is lower priority. We should all make a formal complain to
them. It is not Astro fault though as it is control by ESPN.

Yup
I just checked espnstar.com, and no live nor delayed. I kinda expected
this, coz TV right is about money, and since Arsenal is playing 2
opponents who don't have much star power.

Yeah I agree Astro should have known majority paying for it is Premier
League follower and that is Man Utd,Liverpool and Arsenal follower.

Maybe one of us can write to ESPNSTAR.COM

surprisingly you guys into slating senderos each time if there r some
slightly lacklustre performance but never say the same thing to your
belove adebayor
to me that little mistake doesnt matter..even jens lehman blunder doesnt
matter
as a gunner im being grateful for their past Major contribution..
If u r not short memory not long ago Lehman man of match performance in
champion league is the reason we went all the way to final..when sol
campbell put injured it was senderos stand in that was so excellent then
to make sure we went tru..
As for Ade i cant remember a single important contribution beside
missing 7 and score that 1 goal at old trafford.
But many love him

I'm sorry but don't you realise most of us are behind senderos in this? Lehmann was amazing in the champions league!

Ade is not that bad la...last time Henry when starting that time worse la.....can't even score had to get training from Ian Wright.

Anyway, why don't you write an email since ur working in DHL? Fast delivery eh? ;P

hey Anand!

our assistant manager ended his career @ Watford and he plays right back. in our first double, 1971, a certain Frank McLintock was captain.

remember 5 minute final?

> But aren't we all forgetting someone who may be the obvious successor.> I know we all like and respect him for all his contributions to the club. He was also a double-captain for club and country, Northern Ireland. And he also retired at Arsenal...but of course in those days, the transfer market was not as crazy as it is these days and homegrown players tended to stay in the same club throughout their career.> He is none other than PAT RICE!

Well, I stand corrected about Pat Rice ending his career at Arsenal, but technically speaking, isn't his career considered over the moment he leaves Arsenal! :-) And he was right-back? That I certainly did not know. You learn something everyday.

On the point of him being double-captain, I was referring to him being captain of both club-and-country at the same time lah...like Tony Adams. I know that Frank McLintock was the captain of the Bertie Mee-managed side that won the double in 1971.

And yes, Pat Rice was captain in both 1978 FA Cup final, which we lost 1-0 to Ipswich Town, and the 1979 FA Cup final, which was known as the 5-minute final, cos of the 3 goals scored in the last 5 minutes, and Arsenal ended up defeating MU 3-2. Arsenal had been leading by 2-0 until the 85th minute.

Can't recall if he was captain of the 1980 team which lost the FA Cup final to West Ham by 1-0 as well.

On that note, Arsenal are the only team to have achieved a treble of consecutive appearances in an FA Cup Final, twice - 1979, 1980, 1981 & 2001, 2002, 2003.
We won three 1979, 2002, 2003 and lost the other three.

Regards,
Anand

Guys,
I would like to get a feedback from the guys who came to Old Railway Station in KL
We had close to 30 fans there, but a few left at half time to catch the game elsewhere.

Honestly I think its a nice place but if we are going to use it on a regular basis
it needs some improvement, attached are my observations,

Plus points :
1. Spacious
2. Open, Stadium feel and Ambience
4. Sound System good
3. Ample Parking
4. Food Cheap

Negative :
1. Trains passing creates disturbance
2. Astro transmission distorted when trains pass
3. Train Parked in front of Screen
4. Not too sure how long this viewing will go on in case of poor reponse might stop
5. No beer but they allow us to bring own cans

Please put your 2 cents worth on the venue, we would like your feedback

Regards,
Sukumar
