Man Manny

Much changed team from Wednesday so that result should have no bearing
All the best guys – go out there and do yourselves and the fans proud.
Give your all and then some.


Perfect! Just perfect!!


Who is the captain?


Presumably it’ll be Santi?


Most likely Santi.




Managed to wangle the afternoon off work for this, hopefully it’ll be the result we’re all hoping for!
There’s no pl game game I’d love to win more!! COYG

Essy baba

Am not sure of the margin of our win but am 100% certain we will WIN.COYG lets paint London red!


Let the chavs bashing begin. Noticed that there is a cunt on their bench. Oh well


‘ … a cunt … ‘ why singular?


Ozil and Cazorla putting Walcott through for a 1 on 1 with the keeper, delightful to watch!


Destroy the blue bus carrying cunts!

The Beast

This team will win the premiership this season.

Wenger's handbrake

TW14 likes playing against Ch*****a. His goal in the 5-3 win remarkable. 1-0 to us courtesy of TW14

Essy baba

Not sure by what margin we will win but am 100% certain a of an arsenal win. Lets paint london red.COYG.


Theo scores a hatrick and we can all blame it on Eva Carneiro


“Pedro and Willian are definitely short for saturday.” Hahaha, nobody believed you anyways Mourinho.


Looks like they might attack us with that defensive pairing. COYG!

Me So Hornsey

That’s the most attacking line up I’ve ever seen Maureen put out.

That is brilliant for us. And Theo.


John Terry won’t like his name appearing next to someone called “Blackman.” Makes it all the funnier.

Le Jim

Let’s fuck ’em up boys.
Push Mourinho one step closer to the sack.
The cunt.


In terms of attacking players we are supposed to have in the squad, where are they in the bench?

I mean Giroud and Ox are excellent options of the bench but the rest are all defenders. Who else should have been there, ignoring long term injured?


Really looking forward to this. Disappointed Terry is on the bench… want him on the field so he can slip over again…


First choice 11 imo.



Mike Dean will win it for them.

broken heart of Dein

why the hell did gabriel do that? exactly what costa wanted… we’re screwed man


OMG. …costa you absolute cunts. …


You cheating cunt.

Andy Mack

The usual Mike Dean display.
His mind is on his new holiday home in Portugal funded by MaureenO.


Gabriel shouldve kept his cool. Doest have the temperment.


Bollocks, the cunt should have been off before that

broken heart of Dein

so everytime an opposition escapes a red card we have the permission to be fools n fuck things waay more up, huh? ok no bollocks (blogs dont be a costa n post my comments ffs)

Canuck Gunner

Many people wondered why we didn’t put a bid in for Costa when he was available. He truly suits Chelsea’s style and class.

Andy Mack

We didn’t put a bid in for 2 reasons. Firstly he’s a cunt (fits in perfectly at Chelsea) but also because his agent is a Portuguese arsehole that’s buddies with MaureenO.


No point in complaining about Costa, that s his game and Gabriel’s nativity got him sent off instead. Hats off for Costa to manage it. I d rather have hom than the nothing player Giroud. Wenger Out.


Same shit, different season, sick of seeing that wanker Mourinho getting the better of Wenger, sick of seeing Wenger being so stubborn also, i hope we can at least nick a draw from this game, season is not long started and already i am depressed and sick of the bullshit when we have millions to spend to improve the bullshit. So fucking annoying. I need a beer.


Costa is a cunt. Gabriel did nothing wrong. Nothing at all. His temperament is fine and he didn’t even overreact when you put it into context with what Costa did literally minutes before the sending off.
