4 – Days since Arsenal have had a red card
Tip of the cap.


Cunt – Samir Nasri




“Cunt” is not a number.

Just saying.


1 – Number of cunts Nasri is.. Sorted


13 – number of CL games after which The Arse will win the European Cup.


0 – The usefulness, in percentage, of the officials on the goal line.


60,000 – number of Gooners who will show that little jizzgargler Nasri how passionate we are next time he pops by the Grove.

Paul Bryan

hahaha. He’s brought it on himself with the way he’s handled it. He could have left on much better terms if he’d kept his fucking mouth shut


How about the number of fans who wanted Arsene strung up before this match against how many now think otherwise??

Rectum Spectrum

fickle cunts. hopefully this result will shut their pathetic mouths for another while yet.

Jim Deen

100 – percent likelihood Szczesny has brass balls the size of cantaloupes.


I Sir will personally forgo my distaste for cantaloupes if that is the case.


I think we need a chant for this.

“Szczesny, Szczesny
Brass Ballls like a cantaloupe
He’ll stop a shot from any dope”


From Opta’s Facebook (need a place to reference back):

6 – Theo Walcott has now scored or assisted a goal in all six of his Champions League Qualifying appearances. Reliable.

22 – Robin Van Persie has now scored 22 goals in 26 appearances for Arsenal in 2011. Deadly.

This is the 14th season in a row Arsenal have qualified for the Champions League, only Man Utd & R Madrid are on a longer run. Streak.


why do Opta always have to put some stupid word at the end of every sentence asi if we can’t figure out what they mean by the stats? Annoying.

My Mum dated The Hoff

I see what you did there. Funny


The Frimpong to van Persie number is illuminating to me, the kid looks forward. Why did we all suffer Denilson so long?


Thats true. Frimpong looks like a force in both defence and attack, with his surging runs. Has massive potential.


Cos Frimpong was injured most of last season. Although still think he would have made more forward passes than Denilson.


Ahh Denilson. The footballing crab.

Steve of Chiang Mai

Because Frimpongs knee was “Frimponged” for most of last year…….


5437653 – Number of Arsenal fans that think Samir Nasri is a CUNT


make that 5437654

Odogwudozill Nnachor

The current value is 5437655, and counting….


117 – Number Of days since we Gooners had something to celebrate! (victory over manure on May 1).

0 – number of cunts in Arsenal team (compared to 1 up to yesterday morning)

6 – days left for Arsenal to bring some quality

Best fact is the 60,000 mentioned above. Can’t wait for that! What a CUNT. I can’t believe I put his name on my short last December. He’s worse than fucking Adebayor. Cunt cunt cunt!


er who puts names on their SHORTS? That’s taking the Nasri-love a bit too far!

(im sure you meant to say SHIRT but that won’t stop me from having fun at your expense)


don’t you mean ‘super quality’? 😛


I’d say 5437656


Actually, when Ade signs for Spurs tomorrow I might review that last comment!

Just a few years ago, Samir didn’t even know there was another team in Manchester. They were in the 1st Division! It’s so sad. Money rules, fuck tradition and loyalty! 🙁


nah, Adebayor doesn’t have a patch on Nasri for hateableness (That’s not a word is it. should be though). Nasri is much more intelligent and sneaky. Adebayor is just a stupid cunt. He already signed for Sp*rs in my eyes when he left us,so I’ll feel no different if he does. Plus he’s poison anyway, so hopefully he’ll ruin them like they deserve. Nasri is a conniving little cunt along with his greediness and therefore, in my opinion, is infinitely worse.


0- days since nasri has acted like a cunt

Bob the Gunner

4 – seasons since we played with a goalkeeper.


Great set of stats – love the feature tinged with awesome humour!

4 – Days since Arsenal have had a red card


Would be interesting to see the stat on the number of times the Arse shot from outside the box.

Walcott, Ramsey and even Song had efforts. Definitely think they need some practice judging by most of the efforts, but was alot more positive nonetheless.

i love arseblog


1- the number of near miss heart attacks I had whilst waiting for the browser to load.

Our season starts here folks, well, at least I hope it does. Tricky little trip to Manc land on Sunday. Pity Frimpong won’t be playing, but awesome that Denilson won’t!!


2 – number of badgekissing traitors we’ve seen the back of in the last few weeks

أحمد شفيق

1 cunt- samir nasri

She wore

2- the number of billionaires we have on the board who won t put their hand in their pocket


to be fair, kroenke was never going to do it,
arsenal is worth more than 50% of his wealth.
Usmanov on the other hand has more money than abramovich,
but the previous share olders didn’t sell to him, so he can’t do anything.


7103 bottles of lucozade!!!!!!!?


1 – number of question marks that should go before exclamation marks


£50 million in one day….. EARNED it…. BANK it….. SPEND it……

T - 6 days

Not even Eto’o makes this kind of money….. £580 a second.

Big UPS to all at Arseblog for the live feed today. I am a teacher, and was stuck in a boring meeting, but was able to keep up thanks to the live blog. Another teacher and up to me during a break, and said her husband took 1/2 off to watch the match in a bar! Good result today.


Don’t be fooled by Ramsey number. Those passes didn’t create chances.


While I agree that Ramsey wasn’t amazing, you can’t expect him to slice a defense in half like Cesc. Compare his performance tonight to last week vs Udinese and I think it was an improvement. Being able to slow the game down is a form of defence for us. Maybe he could realise when to play the ball faster and when to slow it down a tad better though.

He was much more composed on the ball and helped ensure we kept possession by always being available. I’d rather he be disciplined than spray passes all over the place.


I’d like to see Ramsey shoot from outside more. He’s got a decent shot on him, and he had chances to use it, but he seemed reluctant. Still, it was an improvement on the last couple of PL games in which he’s been a bit sloppy.


5% – percentage of Arsenal fans who REALLY think Arsene will spend any money this week?

Adam Mitchell

90-Percent chance Benatia is our defensive signing after tempting fate with this post.


1 – Reason why that penalty was awarded yesterday..

So that we could see Szchzney make such an awesome save.. 😛

Jim Deen

Tru dat.

Professor Plum

1/100 – written English exam result.

[…] We equalised on 55 minutes. A Rosicky shot was blocked, Gervinho picked it up, skinned the defender, got to the byline and pulled it back for Robin van Persie to slot home with his left foot. It was great play by the Ivorian who looked a lot more dangerous last night than in the previous game, and van Persie’s scoring record in 2011 is ridiculous (see the game by the numbers on Arseblog News). […]


100- percent wenger landin eden harzard. 0- percent nasri making first team at city. CUNTNASRI.


I’d rather it were eden hazard

Akshay Ghate

great post 😛


8 – the number of inches of skin on Gervinho’s forehead


So happy we won. enough with the negativity and on with the passion for Arsenal. Go Gunners

T - 6 days

The future is bright…….the future is Red & White (NOT holdings)


8 – the shirt number available for Hazard to take


Countless – Number of british pundits begrudging Arsenal’s win, including Ian Wright


This. Make that two cunts.

Missed one stat:
58 – number of times Clive Tilsley mentioned Manchester United in an Arsenal game.


49% – Arsenal’s PL win percentage with Samir Nasri starting is well below the 62% win rate for the Gunners in his absence. Divorce. – OptaJoe


i hate Opta Joe. Dick.


90% number of positive coments on this site

Well done lads

The other 10% can fuck of to some other negative shite site if which unfortunately there are. Entry.


Sorry meant plenty fucking predictive.


100% – chance that we will play our group matches on the same nights as ManUre and be on ITV4.
