The Silence of the Stans……

Welcome to the GunnersoreArse Blog. Being blogged 918.74 kilometers (in a straight line) from the Emirates Stadium.

Today we have a guest post from the Cockie Monster. Taken (nicked) from the comments section this week. It was so funny it had to be posted again.

I sit here looking out of my window watching my puppy run about outside with some of my naked Lesbanians………hold on a sec` !……..if my puppy is outside…….who the f**k is sniffing my arse and licking my balls ?………phew !….it`s OK…… I sat on the false teeth that the bastard VCC sent to me !, the shiny f**kers are smiling at me, they are however not as shiny as Terry Mancini Teeth Transplant`s ones !. F**k me, they are so bright, that an alien on a planet in the Caninus Testiclus Solar system in our galaxy looks up to the night sky and says ….”Daddy, isn`t that the brightest star in the Universe ? “…..”No Jabba, that is some Bastards f**king teeth from the Syrupus Minus System, just past where we sent a probe up to Uranus ! “.

Today bastards, I shall try and sit on the fence and be neutral in a look at the bastard Kroenke and give you an insight in to why he is a tight Khunt and why most importantly he has no vision and doesn’t see !.

Basically it all boils down to him being a slap head !. If truth be known, it`s not all his fault as he is just a victim like many, of the discrimination of syrups wearers and comb overs, which only recently ended with the newly introduced technology of transplants!
A brief history will give you some idea. First of all, it was all started by cave women, not cave men, who used to drag their men into the cave by their hair. Only the men with strong follicles survived baldness !. Since then throughout history, there has been documentation of the plight of the Comb overs and syrupers and also of the great explorers looking for cures etc`.
From the ancient Greeks we had Jason and the Argonauts in search of the Golden Syrup to the native Americans who were known to be the first makers of syrups with drive – through scalping. Wigwam`s were the first syrup factories and the word toupee comes from the word teepee, a place similar to a hairdressers where rugs were fitted.
In culture and art, there can be found references in the great writings, for example….”Friends, Romans and countrymen…lend me your hair !”…….”Toupee or not toupee….that is the question !”………  “Is this a dodgy syrup I see before me !” ……. “A syrup, a syrup, my Kingdom for a syrup !” ……. “Romeo…Romeo..what the f**k is that on your bonce !”

Now Silent Stan was determined to amass a fortune so he could find a cure for his slapheadness. It all ended in a tragic tale of jealousy and psychosis.
Kroenke had found a scientist who had made the worlds first hybrid symbiotic beaver syrup  (Castor Canadensis syrupacus)  It was like love at first site with a puppy, but it all ended badly once Stan married and the symbiotic beaver became jealous and one night it came to a head ( nice pun ! ) it slipped quietly off of Stans head and tried to suffocate Mrs Kroenke. The psychotic syrup was found guilty of attempted murder and sentenced to life at a State Mental Asylum.
Since then, Stan has only worn Syrups made from the worlds greatest toupee specialist….Terry of Bounds Green !.
I will now show a video of a song which I have had the words re-written by Rolf Harris`s less dodgy brother Rough Harris, by the way, I think the writing was on the wall for all to see regarding Rolf…I mean with songs like…. ” Tie me kangaroo down sport ” … “Two little boy`s ” and ” Blow on my didgeridoo young Bruce ” !.
So listen bastards, I will show the video and beneath it, there will be the new words to sing along to!

My wife don’t care that I`ve lost all my hair
It`s so shiny. I rub in some spermmmmmmm
The rug looks alive, made from my wife`s muff dive
It`s so natural it looks like a permmmmmmm.

  1. I think that is a terrible assessment of poor Stan, and the abuse of VCC’s teeth leaves him mumbling in shock.

    Stop it. (And those puppies should learn some manners – only sniff when given permission!)

  2. Morning all,
    What a splendid look into the life of a multi billionaire, I sometimes think that my life is quite bland, but give me blandness all day long, The thought of a Walrus tash dripping in minge juice with a sliding syrup, reminds me that my life is sweet compared to his.

    La la la like a syrup over troubled waters, never let Stan go down on you.

    Top Quality NB 🙂

  3. Morning.
    A cockie masterpiece 🙂

    Well my new post went up but the owners seemed to have buggered off again and it still has yesterday’s preview as a headline.

    Why do I waste my time,especially with toothache,headache, sneezing,coughing, bloating, blocked ear and nose, and ever increasing farting.
    Just like most days 🙂

  4. Actually,I am quite annoyed or maybe the post is crap.

    Did you know kroenke payed for his shares in a form of i.o.u.’s a sort of tax fiddle.

    Actually look at all the American owners in the PL at United,Villa and us.None of them speak or actually invest their own money.

  5. Morning Kelsey

    Glad to see that you are still alive and kicking. I’ve actually posted a link to the PA site 🙂 with a disclaimer of course, I’m blaming Cockie, he didn’t know I was really Bertie Smalls ha ha

  6. SteveP

    The benefit of having a tash or a beard, is after going down on some muff, if you don’t wash it you can get the smell and taste of anchovy for a few days afterwards. 🙂

  7. Afternoon `sorearsetards !.
    Woke up this morning and straight out to do the horses stables, it`s not the picking up the manure that takes the time as I`ve trained the bastards to shit in to a compost bag, it`s holding their cocks to piss in the urinal that takes the time !…if only they had arms instead of legs they could do it themselves !.
    I then took my wife`s suggestion to have a relaxing bath to take away the aches and pains with a candle lit bathing session, trouble is it turned out like a Viking funeral with my floating knob catching fire !…no crying for Valhalla, more like crying for some Valderma Antibacterial Cream !.
    You actually used the comment, `69er !….you must be scraping the barrel !. hahaha
    Good win yesterday with 3 points and probably 3 injuries !.
    Being the food expert that `69er is, I reckon he seasons his girlfriends muffs before getting down with a little bit of salt and a heavy dashing of pepper !……oh well, I suppose in his case it`s an opportunity not to be sneezed at !.

  8. Cockie

    I actually like a bit of spicy pizza oil on my fanny as well, not only improves the taste, but lubricates and stimulates the clit at the same time 🙂

    Yes, it was a good win yesterday.. and more to come me thinks

  9. Oh shit !…..the symbiotic Beaver syrup has escaped from the State Mental Asylum and rumoured to be heading for the South of France !.

  10. `69er…..Now If you could produce an avatar of a syrup on your bonce, it would be the icing on the cake !. hahaha

    Stretch`s syrup is the funniest as it`s made from a Meerkat !. You could be talking to him and all of a sudden his syrup will shoot up straight on his legs looking out for predators or in Stretch`s case…the inland revenue !.

  11. Cockie, I’ve never been the comb over or syrup type. I had to accept my receding hairline from an early age. I’ve had many years to become comfortable with it. ha ha

    But for you mate, I may have a laugh and put my dog on me head and post a photo 🙂

  12. Hahaha…..can you put a ….”WANTED !”….above it ?………..not you, but above the syrup beaver, dog, meekat any mammal etc`. hahaha

  13. ha ha ha, barstewards, I am crap at everything! but I pretend to be a smartass and jack of all trades. 🙂

  14. Well looking at it logicaly,when we win people don’t comment much or is is the left overs of Black Friday Xmas shopping spree.
    Tescos are discounting toupees in the Bounds Green area or 2 for the price of one.

  15. Talking about shopping the latest toy to hit the Canadian Xmas market is a talking Muslim Doll.
    Nobody knows what the doll says, because no one has the guts to pull the cord.

  16. You may have noticed a lot of hits in the night. I’m trying to post images off my phone onto a blog, needless to say no success. I don’t think its possible.

  17. Morning

    peaches is getting a tad annoyed but actually we had the largest amount of hits on AA yesterday for the whole of November.
    Of course it’s not my analysis it’s all the porn that creates the hits. 🙂

  18. I don’t think the “smutfesting ” is too bad on AA !…….if it were my site, I would ban U18 children, Mums ……basically all women, unless they are dirty slappers !. hahaha

  19. Me neither, it doesn’t get too out of hand, but Eddies post with the Yoga geezer and the big dongler was a bit much today. Do you think she was trying to make all the men feel inadequate 🙂 because it didn’t work with me ha ha

  20. hahaha…..yeah, but who`s going to argue with Eddie ?….not me !……I have this allergic reaction to any kind of knuckle duster !. Coups-de-poingphobia !.

  21. who ignored you, Kelsey. come on, tell us, share your stories. 🙂

    NorthBank. 🙂 I am still seething a little bit. 🙂

  22. Either a goodnight or a good morning joke – depending on your time zone.
    I was sitting at a long stoplight yesterday, minding my own
    business, patiently waiting for it to turn green, even though there
    was no on-coming traffic.

    A carload of bearded, young, loud Muslims, shouting Anti-American
    slogans, with a half-burned American Flag duct-taped on the trunk of
    their car, and a ” Remember 9-11″ slogan spray painted on the side,
    was stopped next to me.

    Suddenly they yelled, “Allah Akbar! Praise Allah!” and took off
    before the light changed. Out of nowhere an 18-wheeler came speeding
    through the intersection and ran directly over their car, crushing it
    completely and killing everyone in it.

    For several minutes I sat in my car thinking to myself, “Man….that
    could have been me!”

    So today, bright and early, I went out and got a job as a truck driver.

  23. GN5. 🙂 that was even a bit sadist. no double standards though, which is one of the most admirable things about you. top man. 🙂

    OK, dont know yet, but if this cancer scare thing gets over and done, we will still make the trip to Michigan in spring 2015. And we look forward to a visit from you and family. 🙂

  24. NorthBank and Kelsey. wifey has suspected cancer. tissue sent for culture. we are awaiting the report. let us see.

  25. Part of the reason for the Portugal trip was to organise a private consultation there. reports awaited there as well. if it turns benign, treatment will start Dec 22, otherwise all hell will break lose much earlier.

  26. NorthBank and Kelsey. Thanks a lot. 🙂

    The seething is about double standards. I will say no more, but it concerns none of us. 🙂

  27. arnie

    there is too much conflict on our site which IMO should have been nipped in the bud a long time ago.
    There is a huge difference between opinion and fact and some people (not me) put their written down comment in such a way that it is a fact and not an opinion, when perhaps if it was a face to face discussion it maybe understood better.
    We all have one thing in common and that we follow The Arsenal, all in varying degrees,we aren’t football managers, but I don’t like this air of superiority that one or two posters have.

  28. Kelsey

    You have to understand that if someone over uses their sense of superiority, generally it is to hide some psychological weakness and feelings of inadequacy.

  29. arnie……I wish your Wife well. I will be thinking of you both, and fingers crossed for good results.

    I know there are some horrendous stories about “some” of our NHS, but I have to say it is not ALL bad with the system.

    My Wife was taken seriously ill on the 2nd September. She was admitted to our local hospital into the CCU (name supplied if needed) and received One to one nursing 24/7. Luckily after 7 days she recovered and is doing fine now. Our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all nurses and doctors at the hospital for literally saving her life.

    It is at times like these that you are in the hands of the Doctors. I hope your Wife gets the best treatment.

    God bless.

  30. Thank you, VCC. That is very touching. Glad that your wife is doing well. 🙂

    and thank you, NorthBank. Cheers. 🙂

    VCC, I am a big fan of the NHS. Generally speaking, the service is also quite good in Botland, as compared with north of England, say. My wife is receiving good care, so thank the NHS for that. However, we still wanted to take a second external opinion. And somehow, whether through LUCk or the blessings and good wishes of everyone, we can afford one. So we took a second opinion as well. Let us see. 🙂

  31. Sorry to hear that arnie baby. Hope the Mrs gets all the clear. Stay strong and supportive my friend. God Bless.

    I in no way make light of your situation arnie, but the following is true

    I had a scare a couple of months ago when I discovered a lump on my cock. Imagine my horror. Lord why me? Why now, just when my Borneo hair solution has sprouted a few hairs.

    And why the f*ucking cock? Any were but the cock. I discovered a forum were men discussed there “amputation” or “Cock Bentness” and I was so distraught the only thing I could post was “some one fucking help me”

    Importunately, after the doctor checked me out, he said it was just a case of excessive masturbation Ive never felt so good been a wanker in my whole life. I almost bashed one out in front of him.

  32. You can never do too much when loved one’s are involved arnie. I’m sure you and your family are taking good care of Mrs. arnie. XXX

    My Wife and I have since visited the CCU in Essex. She wanted to thank the staff personally, and bought them all an Angel brooch, as she thought it was apt.

  33. Cheers Vics, hope you and the Mrs are well mate. I met up with Total for the Dortmund game and he says hello.

    Yeah, it was a terrifying experience. Apparently, lots of sex or excessive masturbation can lead to blockages that create lumps. The doctor usually asks if you have been having a lot of sex, but in my case he took one look at me and put down over wanking.

    The Bastard didnt even bother looking at my cock.

  34. Stretch…..I have wonderful news for you. I have found the absolute 100% cure for your plight, buddy.

    It’s called regain for men. I am waiting confirmation of “patent” You will be amazed. I guarantee it will put a smile on your face.

    That’s the good news…….now here’s the bad.

    As it comes with my guaranteed 100% success formula it doesn’t come cheap. It’s not on the market yet so mum’s the word.

    You can be my guinea pig, er sorry, pioneer.

    Just go to Waterloo Station, Bay 10 Box 13. You will find a brown paper bag with the magic solution. All I ask is £2,500. in return.

    If not fully satisfied I will be at the Emirates Stadium in seat 113, row “F” North bank tomorrow night. 😉

    Hope your ecstatic with the results.

  35. ha ha ha… you’re a funny lot, keep it up (pun intended)

    I once had a small lump on a testicle, got it checked out with my GP and everything was fine. A few months later, I visited my GP’s surgery, he was an Irish fella and we got on really well. Anyway, on this visit, he wasn’t there but there was a young female medical student doing the surgery. I’d gone with xsome some minor complaint but when I saw her, I told her that I had a small lump on my testicle.

    So she gave me a manual hand examination and I started to get a stiffy. She pulled away and said perhaps I should see Dr O’connor about it.

    The next time I saw him he cracked up laughing, and said, you cheeky bastard, my student doctor referred you to me about the lump on your testical, the one I’ve already examined. 🙂

  36. Stretch…..good result against Dortmund. Followed up by an away win against the Baggies. Only papering over the cracks imo

    Did you give Total that Mourinho CV I sent you? 🙂

  37. hahaha, I did mention Moronio and Cornwalls bent love for the geezer, but Total went from been a nice hashed up Dutch guy to a drunk Jean Claud Van Dam, threatening to staple my balls together, so I left it.

  38. Morning all.

    So sorry to hear of your wife’s issues arnie and I wish you both well. I look forward to meeting yu both in the spring of 2015,
    This is for all of my new and old friends …GunnerN5



    You know … time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams.

    But, here it is… the back nine of my life and it catches me by surprise…How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go?

    I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that I was only on the first hole and the back nine was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like.

    But, here it is…my friends are retired and getting gray…they move slower and I see an older person now. Some are in better and some worse shape than me…but, I see the great change…Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant…but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we’d become.

    Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore… it’s mandatory! Cause if I don’t on my own free will… I just fall asleep where I sit!

    And so…now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!! But, at least I know, that though I’m on the back nine, and I’m not sure how long it will last…this I know, that when it’s over on this earth…it’s over. A new adventure will begin! Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn’t done…things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I’m happy to have done. It’s all in a lifetime.

    So, if you’re not on the back nine yet…let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly! Don’t put things off too long!! Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether you’re on the back nine or not!

    You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life…so, live for today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember…and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!!

    “Life” is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one. LIVE IT WELL! ENJOY TODAY! DO SOMETHING FUN! BE HAPPY ! HAVE A GREAT DAY Remember “It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.
    LIVE HAPPY IN 2015!

  39. hahaha, Totals a great guy Vics, i really liked him. He done a post on Bergkampesque about going to the Dortmund game and said some nice things about me. Ime not used to that. hahaha

  40. Stretch….don’ trust him, he talks with forked tongue. Just take a look in the mirror, how can any one say your a nice guy? 🙂

    He doesn’t know you like I know you , 😀

  41. ha ha I’ve just read TA’s summary of the Dortmund game. He seems to think that Transplant man is a womaniser 🙂 he needs to borrow my specs

    I hope we get a chance to meet up in April Terence Adonis…. we’ll have to go to Baileys where apparently the barmaids are alright 🙂

  42. Hey 69er….Don’t get sucked in by Stretch. It’s all affront. It’s a disguise. He’s far from an adonis. He was last seen entering the G-A-Y Bar in Old Crompton Street.

    You wouldn’t find him any where near Bailey’s……….wrong types. 😉

  43. hahaha, Total dont need new specs 69.

    The real story is;

    “Fuck me Terry, your one ugly bastard. How come you made up all those lies about womanising, have you got a stunted cock?”

    “Now listen hear Total, you Dutch git. Heres £500 quid to make out ime not wearing this tesco bag over my face and you saw me chatting up a few birds”

    “Ok Ok, Terry. But I feel bad. i dont mind telling a small white lie, but if any other fucker ever sees you they will know that the only birds you chat up cost $200 dollars and its through a cam”


  44. “through a cam”.

    No idea what this means but it made me laugh.

    NB. Use the word “birds” and the only London girl who will understand you will be drawing a pension

  45. How does that NB do it.

    He has screwed about 2500 women and literally a few men.

    Is it his looks, his money or the size of his ….. 🙂

  46. I love a bit of gossip, but this comes from a very reliable source..

    Harry Styles of One Direction is gay and how tall is Simon Cowell. Answer 5″5″

    He wears built up shoes inside and cuban heels as well, and he is also bisexual but tends to prefer men.

    I promise you it is true.

  47. A long time since Terry has blessed us with his company I thought he had slipped off to George’s place.
    BR probably a web cam, you know on those naughty sites.
    GN5 some of those things seem to be blighting my life as well. 🙂

  48. That Balotelli really is a nutter but unfortunately most of Europe is going far right and it is creeping more and more into the sport we all enjoy.
    Arsenal have the largest ethnic community of fans in London. it’s all very sad.

  49. Apparently the Chairmaan of AC Milan held a party to celebrate Balotelli leaving. They could not believe it when L’pool offered to pay for him, let alone more than we paid for Welbz!

  50. Whos George, Michael? Is he a fellow bubble?

    Thanks for the info Kelsey. I always suspected that Cowel geezer. The blokes got tits

    Of course Ime only joking about my ugliness. About 10 years ago I done a lot of modeling.

    Does anyone remember that Argos advert? That one with the happy mum, dad, and two kids advertising that shit sofa? i was the dad. I got sacked from that gig for sexually harrasing the mum.

    My career took a bit of a down turn after that. No one likes to employ a man rubbing up a women whilst shes crying and saying no. To scrape a living i had to do a few gay mags and spring out of cardboard boxes at hen nights.

    Eventully i got a break and done some nude modeling for would be artists. 69 knows what i mean. My problem was that every time I spotted a fit women amongst the artists, I would get a bona

    The only way of controlling it was to summon up a mental image of Steve Archibald but the whole thing took a toll on my nerves. It got to the point were mental images of Archibald were every were. I had to go the doctor and ask and ask for anti Archibald viagra.

    So i was forced to become an Accountant. hahaha

  51. Not surprised Stretch has been away for a while !. Lets look at the facts, he meets a devious Dutch drug dealer in drag and Mullet haired moustasheod German porn dealer outside The Emirates on a cold November night !. It`s taken him a week to get over the overdose and the near loss of sight !.

    All the best Arnie !. I have an inkling of what you`re going through my friend, my wife just recently had to have a bone marrow biopsy as her white blood cell count was extremely low and we were expecting the worse of either Lymphoma or Leukemia, but thankfully it was neither, but it is a rare blood condition and has to be monitored regularly with blood tests and that’s not counting the regular tests and scans for Cirrhosis of the Liver where she is on referral for a Liver transplant !.
    I find having a laugh with my Cyber Gooner buddies a great way of relieving some of the stress of worrying for a loved one !.

  52. I see AA this morning that chas went from …Rack of the Day …to…Rock of the Day !.

    I `m wondering if Stretches fascination and obsession for Arsene is in an Accountancy way and not in a footballing way or just that he loves older wrinkly men ?. Lets face it, where Arsene is concerned, Stretch would pogo stick through the most dense minefield in the world with dildo shaped dynamite stuffed up his rectum just to suck the semen out of a women who had just been shagged by Arsene !. hahaha

  53. This I cant wait to see !……..a photo of you fiscal fcuking Totes with a Mourinho hand puppet !. hahaha

  54. Cheers Cornwall. Off out but when i get a chance ime gona watch that.

    Ive sent you mail


  55. cheers Terry, cheers Cockie, cheers everyone. 🙂 Cockie, likewise in my case. AA is a great pleasure. I am not struggling like, but there is stress anyway. 🙂

    Cockie. can you perhaps do a few lines or perhaps a post once a month on our youth setup? It will be great if you would. 🙂

    Arsenal v Southampton – Match Preview

    Two wins in a row, two clean sheets in a row. Things are looking up for Arsenal as they enter their most hectic spell of the season.

    An early exit from the Capital One Cup gives them a midweek breather in a fortnight, and you wouldn’t bet against significant rotation for next week’s trip to Galatasaray. All the same, this run of eight games in 30 days – bookended by encounters with Southampton – could define Arsenal’s Premier League campaign.

    Team News
    Arsenal: Gibbs (ankle – fitness test), Monreal (knee – fitness test), Ospina (thigh), Debuchy (ankle), Szczesny (hip), Arteta (calf), Walcott (groin), Wilshere (ankle), Ozil (knee), Gnabry (knee)

    Southampton: Rodriguez (knee), Ward-Prowse (ankle/foot), Gallagher (knee), Schneiderlin (groin/pelvis)

    Since that defeat to Manchester United – the manner of which left players, fans and the manager shaking their heads in despair – Arsenal have been rewarded for doughty displays against Borussia Dortmund and West Bromwich Albion.

    “I was really pleased with our serious and committed attitude [at West Brom], two-and-a-half days after Dortmund, where we had to give a lot,” Arsène Wenger told

    “I think the team was remarkable attitude-wise. We were competitive and serious. Unfortunately, we couldn’t kill the game off, but to be 1-0 up and keep a clean sheet was very positive.”

    It’s no coincidence that Laurent Koscielny’s return to the side made Arsenal a tougher nut to crack at The Hawthorns.The France international slotted seamlessly into the back four after eight weeks out, and he clearly improves those around him. Koscielny’s covering pace and anticipation complements Per Mertesacker’s positional sense, and it was reassuring to see last season’s bedrock back together.
    “He did well,” said Wenger, who also praised Olivier Giroud after his first start since August. “Both of them are a little bit short of competitive games, but their basic fitness was good, their attitude is always very good and it’s good to see them back.”

    Another star of Saturday’s win was Santi Cazorla. The club’s Player of the Season after a stellar debut campaign, Cazorla has rediscovered his 2012/13 form and set up the only goal for Danny Welbeck at West Brom.

    “What was more surprising was that it was with an overlap,” noted Wenger. “At the moment, I think when Santi plays in central midfield he is very influential in the fluency of our passing, the consistency of our technical quality and when he has the ball, you always expect something from him.

    “He is at an age where you can take the maximum of your qualities and still be very strong physically, and that’s what’s happening with him at the moment.”

    Wenger was hopeful of having at least one of his frontline left backs available to face Southampton – Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal’s involvement is subject to late fitness tests, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is expected to shake off a knock.

    Emiliano Martinez will continue in goal with Wojciech Szczesny still nursing a hip problem, and Calum Chambers is set to face his former club for the second time this season.

  57. Sorry Arnie, but I only see as much as you do on Arsenal Player about our youth set up !.
    However, I do happen to know that Transplant lives only about 12 miles away from London Colney and has a season ticket at a large shrub just behind the show block. ( he even has an Arsene puffer jacket in Rhododendron colour ! )
    He does live texting from there and I get all the latest info` !……….hold on a sec`, he`s just texting me now !……..” Cockie , It`s just come to my attention, that my cock is bigger than any of the youth players ! “…………………………usually short scripts as they do the odd security sweep, but there you have it, our own `sorearse reporter live from London Colney. He did forget to add just why he is bigger and that’s because he had an erection !. hahaha

  58. Them Picasso paintings look disjointed and like some of the stuff I`ve done after drinking six Red Bulls…..will mine be worth anything ?.

  59. Cockie. 😆 you are class. at least you follow the news of the young Gooners regularly. that is itself much better than all of us others combined. keep it up, mate! 🙂

    Regarding Transplant, very worrying. I am surprised he does not have an ASBO! prohibiting him access to junior training grounds! 😛

  60. old news, but ….. 🙂

    Britain’s most unusual Asbos (Source: Beebs)

    A 60-year-old man from Northampton was banned from dressing as a schoolgirl.
    Peter Trigger dressed as a schoolgirl Parents complained after he loitered near primary schools

    Peter Trigger’s Asbo stopped him from wearing skirts or showing bare legs on school days between 0830 and 1000 and 1445 and 1600.

    The authorities acted after parents complained he was waiting near a primary school dressed in clothes similar to school uniform. He then breached this in December last year by bending over in front of his neighbours repeatedly.

  61. and now, some new news …. 😆

    Vagina kayak artist arrested in Japan

    An artist who made a kayak modelled on her own vagina was arrested in Japan on Wednesday, police said, in a case that has sparked accusations of censorship.

    Megumi Igarashi, who calls herself Rokude Nashiko — offensive slang which loosely translates as “reprobate child” — was arrested in July for trying to raise funds online to pay for the construction of a kayak, using a 3D printer, inspired by her genitals.

    She was released days later following a legal appeal and after thousands of people signed a petition demanding her freedom.

    But on Wednesday, Igarashi was re-arrested on suspicion of sending a link “that shows her plan to create a boat using three-dimensional obscene data to a large number of people,” a Tokyo police spokeswoman told AFP.

  62. Ad on a notice board in a Florida Seniors home.


    Male, 1932 model, high mileage, good condition, some hair, many new parts including hip, knee, cornea, valves.

    Isn’t in running condition, but walks well.

  63. PMR. NB, you’ll get a smacked wrist or a red card, can’t post for 3 days ha ha.
    Once again couldn’t watch as I was in conference with a nice lady from apple, which went on and on.
    The good news is I can now download the new OS for free. The one advantage to apples is there are all backwards compatible, unlike pc’s where they don’t support after a while. So 1 positive this afternoon.

  64. This makes me really fucking angry, how Adam didn’t get a red for this and Chambers got two very soft yellows.

    Is that an attempt to get the ball? is it even football?
