The Arsenal and Premier League Season: 2011-2012

Manchester United vs. Manchester City

The final day of the 2011-2012 Premiere League season was one of the most exciting day of football I have experienced in a long time, this day would have been even more exciting if Arsenal was in Manchester City's position and Sp*urs was in QPR’s position and about to be regulated. It was a tense day filled with nail-biting drama that had everyone on the edge of their seats. The Premiere League Championship was decided by two goals in the last couple minutes of extra time. Growing up we use to say that the worst defeat was a 1-nill defeat but we have a new worst, the worst defeat is thinking you will be champion and to have it snatched away from you in the dying moments by your bitter, hated rival. That must have hurt, many Manchester United supporters must have cried themselves to sleep that night, that was brutal, like having your guts sucked out, gutted like a fish on international Television. The NHS will be handing out anti-depression tablets to Manchester United fans for a long time to come, every time they see the Manchester City colours which should be all over Manchester by now, they will curl up into the foetal position and cry like babies.

I did not want Manchester City to win the League only because of the ungrateful, traitorous ex-Arsenal players (Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy, Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Adebayor (Now with the scums on loan)) that are now members of that squad, in particular Samir Nasri, I dislike him immensely and did not want him to win anything because of what he said about The Arsenal. Nasri used us as a stepping stone plain and simple and then had nothing good to say about us, after he left he turned around and spat on us, he will be forever hated. But he was right when he said he would lift the Premiere League Cup with Manchester City before Arsenal and he did. After lifting the cup he was quoted as saying that Arsenal should "celebrate their third-place achievement and I will focus on winning titles". … What a Scumbag!!!!

Joey Barton vs. The Demons in his Head

During the Manchester City vs. Queens Park Rangers match Carlos Tevez lashed out against Joey Barton punching him in the back of the head which started the mother of all Brawls, it was truly Joey Barton versus City as he tried to fight anyone who confronted him. I truly believe that if it was not for football Joey Barton would be serving 25 to life in one of the UK’s many prisons alongside his brother Michael Barton who was sentenced to life imprisonment (with a tariff of 17 years) for his involvement in the racially motivated murder of Anthony Walker in 2005.

So After elbowing Carlos Tevez in the face, Barton went on to kick Sergio Aguero and then head butted Vincent Kompany,thus completing a hat-trick of assaults in the space of about 5 minutes and even after that tried to engage the boy child Mario Balotelli. Watching Mario Balotelli race onto the field to confront Joey Barton was a joke, Balotelli is not a bad boy, he is more childlike, a man boy, an immature person who throws tantrums when he does not get his way. As much as I cannot stand a bone in Joey Barton’s body compare to Mario Balotelli, Joey is the real deal, bad to the bone, a first class lunatic who will fight anyone, anywhere anytime, he is borderline insane, a psychopath and as far as I am concern Barton should be in prison or will end up in prison one day.

However he would have wiped the floor with girly boy Mario Balotelli and I would have enjoyed watching that.

His career and life have been marked by numerous controversial incidents and disciplinary problems and he has been convicted twice on charges of violence. On 20 May 2008 he was sentenced to six months' imprisonment for common assault and affray during an incident outside a McDonald's restaurant in Liverpool City Centre. Barton served 77 days of this prison term, being released on 28 July 2008. On 1 July 2008 he was also given a four-month suspended sentence after admitting assault occasioning actual bodily harm on former teammate Ousmane Dabo during a training ground dispute on 1 May 2007. This incident effectively ended his Manchester City career. Barton has twice been charged with violent conduct by The FA: for the assault on Dabo and for punching Morten Gamst Pedersen in the stomach. He was twice fined by former club Manchester City for stubbing a lit cigar in the eye of young team-mate Jamie Tandy at a Christmas party - and for his involvement in an altercation with a 15-year-old Everton fan at City's team hotel in Bangkok during a pre-season tour.

Demonic Possession of Joey Barton!

In May 2005 he broke a 35-year-old pedestrian's leg while driving his car through Liverpool city centre at 2 am. He was arrested on suspicion of assault and criminal damage after an alleged argument with a taxi driver in Liverpool while going to his hotel after a match on 13 March 2007. He was cleared of this charge in May 2008.

And while all this was going on I have watched Pundits over the years defended Barton and his crazy ways, whenever the English want to make light of something nasty they prefix it with the words "The Lad" or "The Poor Lad". Make no Mistake Joey Barton is an English creation as they bend over more times than I can count to accommodate him and his crimes.

Diaby however was not having it!

Arsenal vs. the Scumbag, Spuds, Sp*rs

Arsenal 5-2 Tottenham (26th February, 2012)
 Arsenal 5-2 Tottenham (17th November 2012)

Again Arsenal was locked in bitter battle with their hated, disgusting troll like rivals the scumbags called Sp*rs, for most of the season we were struggling behind these douche bags but again we proved that they are truly the most worthless club in all of England, if not the world. St Totteringham's Day was declared on the last day of the season when Arsenal beat West Bromwich Albion to claim the third spot and regulate The Scums to the fourth position. For now they have a place in next seasons Champions League but if Chelsea wins the Champions League this season then the Spuds will be denied their place and all will be right with the world again.

The Blue energy of hope (Blue Lantern Corps ) has an infallible connection to the universe, let us all concentrate all our energies to keep hope alive and give Chelsea the strength to beat Bayern Munich and knock Sp*rs out of next seasons Champions League, after that happens then let’s hope Chelsea crash and burn for all eternity, never to win another match. The only decent player the Spuds have at the moment is the on-loan Emmanuel Adebayor who belongs to Manchester City and since City clearly do not need this idiot to win anything, Sp*urs would be fools not to splash out and buy the ungrateful, traitorous scumbag, both he and the Spuds are like two peas in a pod.

I was told by a Sp*rs supporter that Arsenal will forever be in their shadows and now I finally understand how he came to that conclusion, if the light source is behind the spuds and The Arsenal is in front of the spuds then this is the only way we could be in their nasty disgusting cold clammy shadows, we need to increase our distance from them and fast.

The Arsenal

I am not happy that we finished in the third position but I am relieved, this is not where a great Club like The Arsenal should be. I am not happy with our 2011-2012 performance, I am not happy with the state of the club, not happy with its direction, I am not happy with the size of the squad, it is way too small and does not provide sufficient cover and I am so not happy with the defense, they are not solid enough and play out of position way too often, too many times they were caught out looking at the scorer as he storms his way towards our goal with no one to stop him, we conceded way too much goals to lesser teams.

I am not too happy with Arsene Wenger at the moment, I do not understand why he seems happy with the current squad, happy that we finished third, happy to make marginal and mediocre gains, I do not understand why he is unable or unwilling to identify weakness in the squad and fix them, regardless of price. The current Arsenal squad is not yet a championship side these Gunners are Gun shy when it comes to consistency and persistency especially against lesser sides and they are unable to defend and preserve their lead.

You cannot win trophies with such a lean squad because the English football season is long and hard, it is an unforgiving season, there is no Christmas break or breaks of any kind like in other countries and as such injuries are bound to happen and we should prepare for that, switching in and out players who are equal in strength and abilities. Instead we have an ideal eleven and if injury occurs then we slap a makeshift squad together, throw them on the field, out of position and watch them run around like chickens without heads.

We have some good players but not great players with the exception of Robin Van Persie who is a great player scoring 37 goals this season, he is in a class by himself and we should do whatever it takes to keep him. Alex Song is a very good player with the ability to pick out Van Persie and deliver a precision like pass, Mikel Arteta shows maturity in midfield and Thomas Vermaelen a good defender but cannot do it alone, all solid players but can and did get injured over the season and we need proper cover.

Yao Gervinho is a good player, who will make most defenders look foolish, Gervinho can pick up the ball in midfield and before you know it beat the defenders all the way into the box, however he cannot shoot for shit and the best thing he should do with the ball is to pass it to a player who can, the man suffers from a Goal Phobia, no other player waste more goal scoring chances like Yao Gervinho, he should spend the entire off season in front of the goal, kicking balls at it…

Instead of going through the list of players I want to keep, it is easier to list players I do not want to see at Arsenal next season:
Jenkinson (Junk-enson),

End of Regular Season, Start of Silly Season
I do not think there is a day that goes by when Arsenal is not on my mind, the walls of my office is littered with arsenal posters, my desk top wallpaper is the Arsenal Logo and my screen saver is a series of Arsenal pictures.

When I login to my PC the first thing I do is to check on the status of The Arsenal from various sites while having my cup of coffee. At Home I have all the football channels and during regular season nothing is missed and the DVR is set to record what I cannot watch now for later and I sometime visit various bars showing the match when I need to relax and talk football with friends over a pint.

It is the silly season now and one must acquire the art of identifying and weed out bullshit, rubbish news from real solid facts as the the rumour mill is in full swing. Arsenal is linked to every player under the sun and every Arsenal player is either leaving or being chased by big clubs offering unbelievable amount of funny money. Even though the regular season is over, it is a special year since both the Olympics and Euro 2012 will be in full swing over the summer as such the withdrawal from the very addictive Regular Season football will not be that bad since both Jamaica and England will be in action.

Champion League is over and Chelsea was crowned Champions of Europe beating a Bayern Munich side that totally outplayed Chelsea but was unable to capitalize on their chances, which is a nice way of saying that they could not score for shit, or they could not score in a brothel or their strikers could not hit the broadside of a barn. As much as I dislike Chelsea, I dislike TotScum even more and so I am not too upset that Chelsea won the Champion League and kick the Scums out of next seasons competition, however I try not to watch any of the Chelsea’s celebration, I do wish some other club had reached the finals instead of them but hey…. That’s life.

The topic on the minds of every Arsenal supporter is … will Arsenal ever win the Champion League? It seems like we are moving further away from that goal, in the past we had much better players and still could not win that Championship, so I do not see us winning it with the current squad unless a couple of them come into form next season. Heck! With current squad most Arsenal Supporters are wondering if we will ever win the Premier League again, all is not right in our world.

On the 17 May 2006 Arsenal became the first London club to reach the Champion League final against Barcelona, we had a very good chance of beating Barcelona that year and crowned Champions of Europe, we had a very good determined squad who was up for it, hungry for it and I think we would have won that match if it was not for that crazy lunatic Jens Gerhard Lehmann, aka mad Jens who was sent off in the first half. However we cannot stay mad at Lehman for too long, he is much loved by us, a member of Arsenal’s invincible squad, he is a very good Goal keeper who command is area with authority and force if need be, he does not like opponents to trespass in his 6 yard box which is why he was sent off during the CL finals. However the Referee who issued the red card admitted “he may have acted too quickly in sending off Arsenal keeper Jens Lehmann during Barcelona's Champions League triumph”, too little too late. I am getting sick and tired of the chant "you'll never win in Europe".....
