SZCZ eyes clean sheets. Theo dismisses Spurs splurge

129

Wojciech Szczesny is happy the Arsenal defence have shaken off criticism following the untidy performance against Aston Villa because he’s desperate to keep further clean sheets following two in the last three games.

Having denied Fenerbahce from hitting the onion bag both home and away, the Pole also underlined how personally he takes denying opponents by stressing his disappointment at Darren Bent’s late consolation effort for Fulham.

“I’m very happy,” Szczesny told Arsenal.com. “It makes my job much easier when the defenders play like that. Hopefully we can get a few more clean sheets in the Premier League because we’ve not kept one yet. It’s a little bit of an obsession for me so hopefully we can improve on that.

“I don’t like to concede. The one against Fulham does my head in.

“I’m doing alright. We managed to keep a clean sheet twice out of the last three games. Hopefully we can still improve but I’m kind of satisfied.”

Looking ahead to Sunday’s first North London derby of the season Szczesny also took the opportunity to rally the troops in his usual pot-stirring manner.

“We just want to give the fans something to cheer about and make sure we get three points [on Sunday].

“We know how important this game is. Not only for the three points but for the mood around the Club. We’ll make sure we do the job properly like we did today and in the last couple of games. Hopefully that will give us the result.”

Arsenal’s number one isn’t the only player looking forward to another mouthwatering derby with the feral cocks up the road.

Dismissing suggestions that Tottenham’s transfer window spending has made them a stronger unit than the Gunners, Theo Walcott told the Evening Standard that confidence is high at London Colney off the back of three successive wins.

“I feel we’re very, very strong. Everyone makes out our squad is very weak and there are not many of us but I think we showed in the last few games that we bounced back from a bad result in the first match [the 3-1 defeat against Aston Villa] and proved a lot of people wrong.

“Every club are different and they invested their money very well. For us players we just want to do a job on Sunday, we don’t care if they have brought in £30m stars.

“They have some very good players and a very good manager but we need to make sure we focus on ourselves. The way we’re playing at the moment we believe we can beat anyone.

“It’s a massive game and I always enjoy them. The fans make it very special. It’s very early in the season considering there is an England game coming up but us players love it and it’s a fixture I always look at straight away.

“Tottenham are playing very good stuff at the moment but we are looking very sharp so for the neutral it’s going to be a pretty impressive spectacle.”

Come on you Gooners!!!!

muchadoaboutnot

Anytime this dude talks before a big game, the outcome does not go well. Wish Szcz will concentrate on the game and leave the talking to fans.

Vino

So good that actual football is back, really looking forward to sunday. Used to love transfer speculation etc when I was younger, but this window has done it. Total apathy now, players just passengers on a train…

neutral

Don’t like transfer speculation? But I just saw this headline on google…

Arsenal Buys International Fiber From Swander Pace

What country does Fiber play for?
and what league is Swander Pace in?

Chopra gooner

I hope we make mince meat out of spurs. 5-2!

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

The thumbs down must be from people who want 5-0

Norwad

Sczcesny is one of them!

GunnAlex

Imagine if the Bail sale fails. What would happen to spuds finances then! 80m+ for 1.5 good seasons is rediculous

goonerdal

You sound scared mate, relax even if he stays Arsenal don’t care bout that, we be trouncing those cunts anyday, everyday, anywhere, anytime….

COYS

Erm, last 4 seasons, Spurs have won 4, Arse 3…..

AFCEdwards

Over the last 4 years it’s 4-0 to Arsenal. It’s a league, learn how it works.

goonerdal

Still can’t beat 5-2 …… twice!

it’s like you lot were put on this earth to get spanked by Arsenal. lol

COYS

Also, your grammar, punctuation and vocabulary are truly Neanderthal. We stopped using the subjunctive tense in cultured Tottenham when you were still in south London. How on earth can you afford to go to the Emirates?

Lucifer

He is a rent boy

AFCEdwards

It’s actually more expensive per game at Spurs than it is at Arsenal. Not only that but we get to watch Arsenal play greats like Barca and Bayern while you get Dinamo Nobody on a Spursday.

I love that photo it’s like a “Who can pull the biggest Doofus face” competition.

Theo is disqualified for getting help from Szczes.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

Mertesacker is like “No Theo, do it like this.”

The Boy

We should buy Bale and start him on Sunday.

Roger

Come on ‘the boy’ He wants to win trophies. He wont come to us. TBH Spurs have got a better team and there support is always better than at the emirates. Why dont our fans sing??? They disgust me. Why would Bale come to us when all he see’s is our best players leaving us like rats off a sinking ship. If we could manage to hold onto our best players then maybe but it would be taking a step down. COYG

Matt

Sorry, that’s not this years moan. This year we’re moaning about not signing any new players. Last year it was that we lose our best players. If you’re going to be unnecessarily negative, at least be up to date

AFCEdwards

Spurs have a better team, I really hope we don’t have to meet them in the CL then.

RC Motors

Everyone knows how Tottenham have strengthened this summer but I really fancy our chances on Sunday on the basis that we have a settled squad (i.e. no players are bedding because we have no new players).

Also, all the new spurs players that have been signed might be overwhelmed by their first NLD whereas all of our first XI experienced it last year.

N.B. i might be clutching at straws trying to find any positives of having not signed anyone this year.

TomJ

Would you be Bipolar or Schizophrenic

Lucifer

Cunt, bollocks, 12 years without a trophy, shit! Tourettes

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

I’d like AVB’s explanation of why Spurs lost so heavily to us to include “I would have picked Bale, but we haven’t seen him for a week. He texted to tell us Spain was hot and had many trees, and that’s anybody has heard of him”

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

“…and that’s the last anybody has heard of him.”

Sorry, mistyped the last bit due to laughing so hard at the thought of him not going back to WHL in case they wouldn’t let him leave again.

Double98

You crack you up

WengersNoseHair

Your own jokes are always the best, I find. It’s the smug satisfaction of having thought of it yourself.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

I must admit enjoy a spot of smug satisfaction now and then, and Lord knows I don’t get it from a wife who has no sense of humour.

What would you buy him with? The last time I looked empty promises and make-believe warchests werent legal tender in this country. Still, best of luck on Sunday. X

Monkey Nuts

Good luck tomorrow night in Europe. Hope it’s a 34000 sell out.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

That’s all the rage there nowadays. Just look at Bale. He’s selling out.

Roger

Always a sell-out at WHL. Could fill that stadium out 5 times over for a friendly. The new stadium Tottenham are going to build should be more than 56,000. The clubs support is HUGE and always get a chill down my spine when I hear the noise generated from 36,000 when compared to the deathly silence that haunts me when I go the the swamp/ emirates. Good luck on sunday. X x x

Parisian Weetabix

Your Gooner disguise lasted 11 minutes. You troll like a true spud.

Monkey Nuts

So emotional singing a Southampton song like a funeral march must make you proud.

Merlin's Panini

the sound of 34000 fat neanderthal fucktards at Shite Hart Lane is definitely what I call spine chilling. Not spine tingling though, which is what you meant and perfectly demonstrates how stupid you Sp*rs fans are.
Go and rob yourself or something you dipshit.

WengersNoseHair

In totally un-related news, the Court of Arbitration for Sport has rejected Fenerbache’s appeal to overthrow the UEFA ban. Exactly what those dirty cunts deserve.

Merlin's Panini

How long does their ban last for? I hope it’s more than just one year, otherwise it’s pointless.
It’s bollocks they were allowed to get up to this point if you ask me.

Come on you Spurs, send the nomads back over the river where they came from.

Your first trophy was in 1920’s Tottenhams first trophy, the F.A cup, 1901. ARSEnal were a good 27 years later. Keep up.

Preston North End must be the best club ever then.

Your name was Woolwich ARŠEnal back then. Ha !

Fun fact: Arsenal have been in North London longer than Sp*rs:

http://angryofislington.com/2012/07/31/who-was-in-north-london-first-arsenal-or-spurs/

N18

FUN FACT! When did WOOLWICH become part of North London?? Tottenham is our spiritual home. South London is yours. You cant dispute that. TBH goons you are a good rivalry and our hatred wouldn’t be wasted on the Spammers or Chavski. Just a shame you aren’t TRULY North London. SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY. Fists and kicks. COYS

Monkey Nuts

Oh you sound hard, fists and kicks chuckle, chuckle

Exiledgooner

And yet Sp*rs spent a lot of time and money trying to move to East London a couple of years back, even going so far as to hire PIs to investigate and follow West Ham officials. Oh, the irony.

AFCEdwards

Fun fact #2: On PES, Arsenal are known as ‘North London’, Spurs are ‘North East London’.

N18

O.k I was being P.C for the juniors. WE ARE GOING TO CUT YOU FROM YOUR THROAT TO YOUR ARSEnal.

BillyBatts

Didn’t read the article, did you sweets? I’ll summarise for you, I know it can be tricky:

Arsenal moved to Islington in 1919.
Tottenham only became part of London on 1st April 1965, up until then it was Middlesex.

Hard luck, chum. But by all means, keep banging that drum about something that happened one year after the end of first world war, nearly 100 years ago, likely before our grandparents were even born. It’s a real wounder in 2013.

gooner odst

Lets be honest, on the pitch it has been a pretty one sided rivalry and they have managed to play catch up recently while Arsenal were on the slide a bit but still not enough to make that final leap beyond. (still waiting)

Off the pitch however is a fierce battle of dates/pre-war history which gives a typical sp*d a sort of platform to launch a debatable subject against Arsenal. Even then, the dates favour Red more than White

Merlin's Panini

Come on you Gooners send Tottenham back to Middlesex where it belongs! Prick.

It’s pretty hard to move clubs. I mean, the spuds tried and failed to move into the Olympic Stadium.

You are really pushing the level of Goon ignorance to a whole new level than I thought your dribbling fans are capable of! The olympic bid was to force Haringey council hand. 1882 and STILL at our spiritual home. God l love Spurs. HOW MANY TIMES YOU MOVED YOU DIRTY GYPSIES. Spit

Twice in 100 years…which is probably fewer times than your family have moved home, and fewer times than most people who support Spurs.

Aye, asking for government handouts and a racist to boot.

And how is it ignorance not hearing of your entirely speculative and unsubstantiated view that this is to force the council’s hands?

You’re also saying you cunts wasted taxpayers money submitting a fake bid? Classy.

You’re quite dim.

I am getting married on Saturday, but rest assured I’ve requested from the hotel that our Sunday morning family brunch have the television tuned in for this spectacle. Me lady is marrying me full well she’s sharing my heart with another love. The ladies who put up with us, bless them. Two loves, one heart…

Much congrats, but what a serious gamble that is, leaving the fate of your honeymoon in the hands of Arsenal Football Club. Hope the traditional shitkicking those mugs get will kick off many happy years of marriage.

Good on ya! I managed to convince my girlfriend to support Arsenal with me as well! 🙂

Hope it ends in a messy divorce and you lose your kids and then lose your job. Lightning is forecast for Sunday. Fingers crossed. Good luck on your big day. Xx

Okay, all your previous posts can be put down to differences of opinion/banter etc. But to actually curse a man on the eve of his wedding day, even if it was a (terribly poor) jest, puts you below the lowest dredges of humanity.

Lucifer

Fair play it was rather bad taste. Good luck on your big day but ONLY for you and your fiance. God bless

Aamir

You would think that Spurs fans would be over the whole “promotion scandal” by now. Which was actually a fair promotion. Promotion and relegation was decided by votes back then. Tottenham despite getting relegated, came storming back to the first division a year later. Now if they were really any good, they would be right up there with the “Big 4” in terms of success by now. It’s not Arsenal’s fault that Tottenham is shite. They weren’t even officially part of London until the 1960s. Thank God we aren’t Spuds fans. What a sad, miserable, and bitter existence.

COYS

Are you serious? Whenever, I want a good chuckle I look at some Arse blogs and websites, they’re hilarious full of bitter, deluded Gooners moaning about every aspect of your club.

davidnewzealand

Only four weeks ago several Arsenal players were saying we need strengthening. Now Theo is saying we are very strong and are not worried about Spurs spending spree.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

It’s all relative, isn’t it. We are strong, but we are looking a bit thin. A quick trip to the sales this week might put a bit of brawn on the old Gunner body.

Sarson Vinegar's frightening sarnie

Spending big isn’t the same as spending well. Im not worried either because what sort of talentless half-wit would sign for a club who:- Despite having their best team in years (and years and years) and a 15 point head start still couldn’t finish above their neighbours (who had their worst team in years). Have a pissy tin shed of a stadium smaller than that of some championship clubs. Release a DVD when they beat a youth team in a meaningless cup so their fans can wank themselves silly while they imagine what it’d be like to be successful like… Read more »

What time is the game on Sunday? I thought it was 4 o’clock but someone told me it was put back 5 minutes to 5-2…

You can never have enough 5-2 jokes eh? Eh?

5-1 was more convincing and we went on to win a trophy after that mauling. COYS!!

Do you not have anything better to do?

5-2 is good but 52 years is better.

They’re not player that much ‘good stuff’ Theo.

For starters they have had to rely on 2 pens to win their first 2 games.
The 2nd one was from a dive too.

I suppose the one they didn’t get was a dive too

His use of the word very every other word is making me feel indifferent to how confident he actually is. Maybe a more composed theo would have realised this

No matter what they do or how hard they try, spurs will finish the season behind Arsenal. That is the way it is, that is the way it always will be. Amen! Isha alla!

Hmm, still no signing. At least get Flamini’s free deal done and make Gooners happy.

*Shrug* – I need to vent.

“Wenger out!”

Is it just me or does anyone else on here find the thought of visiting a spud website utterly fucking repugnant?
Makes my skin crawl just thinking about it.
Can’t understand why they’d be on here.
Unless it’s cos really they can’t help but feel a little bit the Arsenal love too…?

Yeah, I can’t do it either. It’s called inferiority complex – that’s about the only way to explain why they keep showing up here 🙂

AFCEdwards

The grass is greener on this side.

COYS

No, it’s because it’s hilarious seeing all you “fans” slagging off your own club. You make more noise here than at your ground. It’s also amusing to see your appalling use of the English language. It makes me realise why anyone would be that moronic to pay the obscene prices to watch mediocrity….

AFCEdwards

I’ll say it again but Spurs fans pay more and they’re football is worse. Moron.

Tapscotts Testicles

In 1961…..
Jfk was president. It would be 10 years before decimilisation came into effect. Most homes had black and white tv’s whilst a sizeable chunk did not own one at all. Chas n Dave were still playing the triangle at school….badly as usual. AVB’s dad was born. And Arsenal football club held 7 league titles, more than twice spurs’ current total today!!
Most sensible spurs fans wouldnt get into this debate, just the morons who cant fucking help it. The stupid cunts.

FA Cup is never a good measurement of club’s success. Wigan won it but lost the league status last year. It shows wining a league is far more hard to achieve. Spurs have done it since 60s. Their fans should be ashamed of coming to Arsenal forums and boast about their ‘achievements’.

DoubleDoubleDouble

Spurs haven’t won the FA Cup recently (over 20 years since their last win), presumably you meant the League Cup.

Salute to Monsieur Wenger!
