Lewandowski shows Van Persie what ‘world class’ really means


Ooh he has been so pleased with himself after his hat-trick against sorry Villa this week; Robin van Persie knows how to celebrate himself.

There are many pundits and fans who believe that Van Persie is world class. There is no doubt in my mind that Van Persie is a very good striker, with beautiful technique, clever positioning and fine composure. He was the top-scorer last season when he was still a Gunner and it looks like he will do so again this year; mainly, because Suarez could once again not control himself, which is costing him dearly now.

But doing well in the Premier League does not necessarily make you world class, and especially not this season. In order to be regarded as world class you have to deliver at the highest level, and that is in the CL, the Euros and the WC.

As a Dutchman I can tell you that Van Persie never did more than ok in the Euros or the WC. Some will say he did not get great service from fellow ego-trippers like Robben and Sneijder, but I don’t buy that.

In the big games, when it really matters, van Persie fluffs his lines: he lacks composure and cool-bloodedness, and that’s all that is to it.

Van Persie did well against Dortmund last season, but when we played one of the most established European forces, Milan, his nerves got the better of him and he fluffed his lines on more than one occasion, in both our home and away games.

The same happened this season whilst playing for MU. He messed up his changes against RM on a number of occasions and did not manage to score in a top European encounter once again.

He also did not manage to get on the score-sheet against the Chavs for the FA-cup, but he did manage to score one goal in each game against MC (away), Chelsea (away) and Arsenal (home). So in the six domestic encounters with the best of the PL – Arsenal, Chelsea and MC – vP managed to score three goals (Arsenal away and Chelsea at home still to come). This is okay, but can hardly be called world-class.

I guess I need to state at this stage that I detest Van Persie now, after what he did to our club last summer. I have written a few posts about him in recent months, so will just leave it at that.

However, I must stress that I will not let this influence my judgement on Van Persie’s skills and abilities, and whether he is worthy of the classification of ‘world class’.

In my view, Van Persie is a great PL striker, but not world class.

And today, against Dortmund, Ronaldo showed once again what world class really means, despite his team losing. The also very self-adoring, former MU player, scored ‘his goal’: normally, a very important away goal. And he did the same against MU in the previous round: scoring in both legs and showing Van Persie how it is done.

Now, that is world class.

But a truly phenomenal display of world class attacking play, is what Lewandowski showed the world today. Four goals: FOUR goals!!!! And all of them were beautiful examples of composure and cool-bloodedness in the heat of the fight and amongst dizzying heights of expectation.

Lewandowski has it, Van Persie hasn’t.

Today, Lewandowski delivered the goods when it really, really mattered, and for ‘footballing reasons’ I would urge Arsene to sign him up! 🙂

    I’ve thought the same way for a while. Although, Lewandowski’s international goal-scoring record isn’t too great either. Granted, he does play for Polan, an inferior side to the Dutch. I would say that Lewandowski has announced himself as a “World class” TALENT!!! He will have to keep scoring at the highest level for me to say that he is on a par with Messi or Ronaldo. No, he doesn’t have to score 4 every match, but he has to continue to score at an appreciable rate for me to say that he is a truly “World class” player. He’s JUST started to score at the highest level. Unless, you count the Bundesliga as the highest level. I think it is JUST below the highest level, as is the Premier League. So in conclusion, I don’t think either one is “World class” although Lewandowski certainly has more time on his side than does RVP.

  2. TotalArsenal says:

    Hi Milo

    You have got a point there. In the end this could prove to be a one off, although he already scored against RM earlier this season.

  3. Bond James says:

    here’s another way of looking at it,

    had Van persie stayed at arsenal then would we still have plenty of scores from the midfield ? i doubt it.

    in the end it wasn’t what we got for selling RVP (25.5 million including 1.5 million we will get at the end of the season part of performance related bonuses) it was the 70 million Arsenal saved .

    Lewandowski might not be world class yet but he has certainly proved to be a class above RVP tonight by almost knocking out one of the Giants of Europe on his own, which RVP failed to do more than once.

  4. max says:

    Klopp shows Wenger what coaching really means. Dortmund LESS money than us show what a young dynamic coach can do. Wenger, burnt out, tired, complacent, and well past it. Next time you watch another clueless performance from a team fighting for a CL league, remember, its not about money. Bayern treated us like a moderate bunch of second raters at the Allianz, the crowd were’nt bothered and the players disinterested, they could have been playing Basle. That was proper football tonight, the sort of stuff we use to watch at Highbury. Wenger says he loves the club, but he’s a drowning man dragging us down, that’s not love. As fans, we can’t win, if we get a CL spot it’s another season of mediocrity, if we don’t, a chilling wind will blow around the Emirates.

  5. TotalArsenal says:

    All agreed BJ 🙂

  6. bc says:

    World class is banded around to easily I don’t even know if supporters are the best people to decide. However I would say if you have been voted world footballer of the year by your fellow pros or even appeared regularly in the nominations then perhaps that gives you that label.
    As for lewandowski and rvp well there are world class performances and world class players. Over the last few nights these two have turned in world class performances. I would love to see lewandowski alongside giroud with walcott campbell and podolski competing with them. Then with cazorla chamberlain wilshire arteta ramsey coquelin rosicky and a big meaty bastard to replace diaby competing for the midfield roles in a 4312 formation. Add to that lot a couple of quality wingers plus gervinho and ryo to give us something different from the bench a world class centre back to replace djourou and casillas to replace fabianski then we might be in contention

  7. IslingtonN5 says:

    a tad over the top with your appraisal of lewandoski, a good player, but mourinho made it easy by naming his side a day before the game

    a monumental misjudgment of imbecilic proportions.

  8. TotalArsenal says:

    hahaha bc – you don’t want much then?! Wenger get your cheque book out! 🙂

    An excellent performance against a bottom club in the PL is definitely nothing compared to one in the CL against a European powerhouse. So, I don’t agree on the first part of your comment. 🙂

  9. Yaee says:

    2 teams from Bundesliga still in CL..so..yes,Bundesliga is high level,for sure similar to EPL.

    “Lewandowski finished the year (2011/12) as the third top goal scorer with 22 goals, none from the penalty spot, and six assists..” and he is 24yo..,so hopefuly he will get better and better..

  10. bc says:

    Can’t agree with bond james. Cazorla aside none of the midfield have scored much from open play. Unless you are including walcott and podolski as midfielders?
    However we have pulled in around £44m for song and rvp now for that we landed giroud podolski cazorla and monreal. You have to say that was good business as their 44 goals will tell you. Add to that the emergence of walcott as a goalscorer and u will clearly see that our problems in the main must lie elsewhere.
    We need 6 players that is all. Gk cb dm rw lw and cf with 4 of those coming straight into the starting x1 if we change the formation. If we don’t then all 6 need to come in. 6 may sound a lot but we have 11 to shift fabianski eastmond djourou squillaci santos diaby denilson arshavin park chamakh bendtner may be double that if u include the academy players like shea wynter boateng angha bhimoutine rees ebicilio galindo henderson neita watt and may be more.

  11. TotalArsenal says:


    I don’t agree with you, sorry. We need a DM and another attacker and a back-up, PL-experienced GK. Too much change will mean another transitional year, and I for one, am fed up with that.

  12. Bond James says:


    the point being if we still had RVP, he would have been the focal point of all our attacks and the goals wouldn’t be shared around as they have been this year – we still would have been a one man team or seen to have been,

    yes, it was shrewd business on wenger’s part but it was idiocy not replacing him last season with a proven signing – all the players wenger bought were to play alongside him not to replace him – that was criminal and will continue to be if we don’t finally buy this summer

    oh and i wouldn’t mind this fella Lewandowski either (a few of you will already know that i have been wanting him over at the emirates since my first post here).

  13. TotalArsenal says:

    max, it will come back again. Let’s hold on to our players and add a bit of quality in two or three positions. Clearly, if Arsene cannot make significant progress next season, he will himself want to move on.

  14. Bond James says:


    i’m on the same boat as you, let’s keep the changes to a minimal and give this team another go.

    too much chopping and changing will do more harm than good , 3 world class signings will do the trick

    and promote a couple from the younger ranks – sorted.

  15. TotalArsenal says:

    Agreed BJ – three class players would be brilliant!

    Did you watch the game tonight? The BD midfield were very impressive.

  16. Admir says:

    TA – I totally agree. Van Persie never delievered in Dutch national team. Perhaps they need another Gio to lead Oranje on the pitch?

    I would love to see Lewandowski in Arsenal more than any other striker (including Jovetić :P) but it’s not going to happen – he is going to join Bayern next summer. It’s a shame given that he would probably be cheaper than Jovetić or any other world-class striker due to contract that expires in 2014.

  17. TotalArsenal says:

    Yaee – it looks like he pretty much has arrived now! 🙂

  18. TotalArsenal says:

    Hi Admir,

    I see Jovetic as a different sort of player than Lewandowski. In an ideal world we’d have them both hahaha 😛

  19. Admir says:

    They are different, of course. 🙂 Lewandowski reminded me tonight of Džeko’s performances in our national team and in best days in Wolfsburg and City (when he scored a poker of goals against Spuds). His third goal was so brilliant, the way he found space and thundered the ball into the net – beautiful!

    I’d like to see Guendogan in our shirt, however… 🙂

  20. Bond James says:

    indeed i did, that fella gundogan is very underrated in my opinion, he was the engine and catalyst behind BD tonight,

    that is exactly the thing we lack at arsenal, for all his technical abilities arteta still can’t boss the midfield as players like gundogan do (similar to Javi M for Munich i reckon) more mobile though

    don’t mind either one of the bender’s either.

    saying that, Real didn’t turn up today, i guess for once the special one got his tactics all wrong and made a massive mistake with his playing 11 announcement.

    i expect a fight back, this one still isn’t over yet (the barca one is for me but not this one, ref’s to the rescue i reckon, a dodgy penalty and a red card for barca and dortmund dream ends).

  21. TotalArsenal says:

    Agreed Agreed Admir

    Guendogan was absolutely fantastic!

  22. TotalArsenal says:


    The game is not entirely over, agreed. But RM will have to come and attack, and BD will love the space they will have in the RM half if and when they win the ball back in midfield. But they have the away goal and so have still a small chance to knock BD out.

  23. 17highburyterrace says:

    Bitter?….Two consecutive blog posts about players who have left Arsenal….I sense a theme….

    What does world class mean these days? Hell, what does “class” mean? In my neighborhood some people (and I use the term loosely) bought a big new house and then lost it to foreclosure. They put trash and dog poop into every room, poured wax down the sinks (and threw it on the walls) and took down all the cabinet doors and light fixtures but got lazy and only took some of them as they left. Are they classy because they had a big new house?….

    What I’m suggesting is that in the current culture maybe it IS all about the money. If Tevez makes the same as Yaya Toure and it’s at or around the top salary in world football is that “world class?” Rooney and RVP make about that much. Are they world class? How much will Lewandoski cost after today’s performance? If he goes to Bayern but plays behind Mandzukic or Gomez….what will that say about him? Does it matter that he (and Sneezy) couldn’t get Poland out of their group at the Euros? We would all say that Messi and Ronaldo are the two best players in the world but neither have won a major international trophy. Neither has David Beckham AND he’s amassing a fortune to surpass both of them, combined….

    It would be nice to think that some players really, really care about how they play and show a real passion for the game. Does that describe Suarez? His cheating at the WC worked, as do his dives….biting is maybe a bit too far….Does Maradona’s “hand of God” make him world class?….

    I dunno, and it’s a great topic. Football trades on tradition and the game harkens back to a more passion driven/innocent time. I think there’s an argument to be made that Arsene’s current iteration of Arsenal lacks both passion (and maybe “class”) because it’s constructed on a “business model. (I think that’s Max’s point above….) But one could also argue that the current group is showing plenty of both as they drive to avoid CL relegation….

    Anyhow, hopefully some news about an Arsenal player (maybe even a new signing) before too long, eh…. 😉

  24. TotalArsenal says:

    Hahaha 17 HT – your mixing your classes! 🙂

    Ronaldo is an absolute twat and lacks any class in that respect, but he is a world class footballer all-right.

  25. Admir says:

    17h, regarding Suarez and WC 2010 – what he did wasn’t cheating. It’s not like he dived or scored a goal with his hand. He committed a sort of professional foul in order to prevent or at least delay defeat of his team in the quarterfinals of World Cup. He knew he would be sent off and he accepted it. It’s not like he took a bite on referee’s arm or on Gyan’s leg.

  26. TotalArsenal says:

    good point Admir.

    Night all 🙂

  27. Dylan says:

    I hope Wenger was watching. Send some scouts to watch the rest of Dortmund’s games this season. If this form continues find a price and spend. He’s still young and him and Jovetic on the same team growing together would be tantalizing to watch.

  28. William says:

    Just read the ffp rules will lead to even more MU dominance and stranglehold on the epl.Wenger better his act together and get the guys who can make a serious impression starting with the Polish striker. I believe the red faced will consolidate his vice like grip by going for this guy.H e will be favourites.
    If he can win the epl before a ball is even kickedthe epl better fold up orbe renamed MU 1 to MU 20. I am sick and tired of this guy . He maybe the greatest football manager in the epl with the help of the FA>but thankfully his forays in to the cl have proved a mt too high for him, Even with the addition of the Polish striker,it will ba task beyond him.

  29. Admir says:

    @William – again, Heynckes’ agent claims Lewandowski signed for Bayern and the Polish striker himself confirmed that there is something about Bayern few months ago.

  30. 17highburyterrace says:


    I agree about Suarez and the block/handball. Always doing what you can and working the rules shows a certain degree of passion and intelligence. This brings up the diving question, however….

    Is it OK to simulate when it gives your team an advantage? Personally I think a lot of it could be reined in with yellows for diving, but referees seem to have backed off that approach….

    I think the days of single players really lifting teams to trophy winning levels may be over, so “world class” may not be so resonant….If the 5-10 best German players all play for Bayern or the 10-15 best Spanish players all play for Barca or Real (plus 4 or 5 of the best Argentines and Brazilians, 2 or 3 of the best Portuguese, etc. etc.) how will we know who is really world class? Some of the world’s best players guys are bench warmers….

    Anyhow, still inneresting…. (And as always, WTF do I know….)

  31. JM says:

    Pep G at BM will look towards establishing a new and strong core of young emerging talented German players. I would expect the announcements of further signings to come.

    Mario Goetze (Dortmund) – 100%

    (1) Julian Draxler (Schalke) – targeted

    (2) Sebastian Rode (Frankfurt) – contacted and looks to be joining soon. (to replace Tymoshchuk)

    (3) Benedikt Howedes (Schalke) – targeted (to replace van Buyten)

    (4) Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Monchengladbach) – speculated (as backup GK to Neuer)

    (5) Robert Lewandowski (Dortmund) – heavily speculated (to replace Pizarro)

    You heard and saw it here first.

  32. JGC says:


    Great post, … An interesting parallel that someone mentioned (sorry forgot whom) above is Dortmund vs Arsenal.

    Both “lower budget” teams with a league powerhouse (ManU, Citeh, Chavs — or — Bayern) with “too much cash” always on the lookout for your best. Both potentially having some best players sold before losing them anyway to at least make some dosh (fabregas, RvJ .. Gotze, Lewandoski).

    Are BvD the Arsenal of a very strong Bundesliga? 🙂

    All the same, to look at them now, it will be very interesting to see how they respond this summer and next year, and how they approach the same basic problem of holding their best vs marquee teams with bigger dosh.

    Cheers — jgc

  33. William says:

    Admir,I hope the Polish guy goes to BM. I have no problems with BM even if they
    dominate the cl.Having said that ,Wenger is fast running out of time to get the gunners challenging.Assuming he were to qualify for the cl,it doesn’t stop with getting the top players.
    He will have to look at his tactics.I am still not convinced the defence can shut up shop. The fm is too arrogant and still believes his style will pay dividends when it is obvious to all but tthe most blinkered and the fm himself,it aint making headway and has resulted in the decline of Arsenal.
    Why not get a top defence coach from the land of defenders;Itally. Sometimes you have to do the unconventional to make things work.

  34. Nedox says:

    Lewa has now scored in 13consecutive games. The record chase is on!

  35. malaysian gunner says:

    According to the Times report,red face will be set to furhter cement his dominance withthe ffp,thnks to his sponsorship deals. That is where Arsenal are lacking. The gunner sponsorship deals may be only 50 % of the red faced .So just imagine what a successful Arsenal can do with sponsors. The caveat is you must be successful on the pitch,winning matches and trophies. Wenger’s football maybe attractive to the eye but more often don’t win games and trophies.
    The onus is on Wenger to change his emphasis. Even Barcelona were hit by a tsunami through a well worked plan. The passing was stopped. I doubt they can recover from a 4-0 beating.I know stranger things have happened but BM will be mindful of 1999 and you can rest a ssured 99.99% they will make sure Munich 1999 will be historyand there will be no repeat.

  36. Gerry says:

    HT17 I do love your posts .. except could you drop the ‘sneezy’ just for me? I like SZCZ. That is the easy way I name him. He will be our saviour over the next four games, just wait and see?

    I get used to not seeing missing the apostrophy, it is not a problem. However, in my racing world, if I don’t type in the exact name as written, then I could never find it searching databases. Unfortunately, some are missed out because of the number of letters is limited. Worst are the ambiguous ones,eg, The Kings Arms(as in the name of a pub) and The King’s Arms(whether limbs or weapons), like The King’s Sword. It does mean I get used to looking for them ha ha.

    Keep up the good work in regular postings of an ‘alternative view’, I love them. Like yourself, if I do not do a good ‘proof read’, you can guarantee their will be mistakes. Well less than if I didn’t.

  37. Gerry says:

    HH – I did not return to the computer last night. However, I only mention my forecast for wanting a Real win. Nothing against Dortmund at all. Okay

    However, it is only half time, and if Real get a couple of early goals the nerves could set in? They also have to stop Dortmund from scoring and that will not be easy.

    Are you sure it wasn’t you doing the co commentary last night? … That poor Neville boy must be worn out with all that excitement?

  38. Beegee says:

    World Class – the term is not definite and brings more questions than answers if u associate it with player. Some people think players attaining Glory is World Class , Some think Showing Flashy skills is world class but my opinion is that a player who gives utmost 100% and helps to make the team win – “DB-10” is class !!!

  39. Highbury Harmony says:

    Is anyone awake? Rule #1, never let clients talk you into drinking until 3 am to the point you can barely see hahaha

  40. Highbury Harmony says:

    Gerry, not to worry mate. I just like winding you up since I know you’re busy and can’t frequent the blog as much!

  41. Highbury Harmony says:

    What the f*ck am I still doing up? It’s almost 4 am over here…haha I’m not even adding value to the discussion! TA, I promise I will tomorrow 🙂

  42. malaysian gunner says:

    RVP maybe the best in thepl but in the cl he is among ten of the best strikers.On Sunday if the defence aint careful he could inflict a fatal blow to the gunners cl hopes.If the gunners miss out on the gunners they could be facing the prospect of ayawning gulf emerging with the epl and cl top teams. This is Wenger’s fault and nobody else.
    Hopefully the gunners can achieve cl soccer and invest in the top players who can invigorate the gunners. Arsenal need players who can make an immediate impact and not in five years time.
    As for rd face hoping to replicate his dominance in the epl with simialr one in the cl,he can dream on. BM,fortunately are not standing still and aim for cl supremacy. I am sure all gooner fans will be happy with this outcome.

  43. TotalArsenal says:

    William – everything is cyclical and RedNose’s reign will not last forever. Yes he will buy again, but there are no guarantees this will add value. Veron anybody? 🙂

  44. TotalArsenal says:

    17HT 🙂

    In an ideal world, it is the whole team reaching world-class level collectively. I would much rather have Arsenal achieve that then a few individuals reaching the world-class status. However, the ability to perform really well at the highest level -as in winning from your opponents and making the difference (Schweinsteiger on Tuesday, for example) – is what really defines world class in my view.

  45. Josh says:

    We should buy Rene Alder, Ashley Williams, Lars Bender, Julian Draxler and Jovetic.

    But i can see us buying Mingolet, Fazio and Remy.

    Hopefully we invest in the strong powerful hard working techincal germans and make the signings to bring us to the next level in The Premier League and the champions league.





  46. TotalArsenal says:

    jgc – good to hear from you again. Did your flight go ok?

    It would be good doing a post on a comparison between Dortmund and Arsenal, and maybe Ajax as well. I am trying to get HH to write it! 😛

  47. TotalArsenal says:

    Malaysian Gunner 🙂

    All agreed. However, Wenger is changing his ’emphasis’, style of footie etc, but is not able to get it to work properly…. let’s see what happens this summer: will he find the missing pieces in the jigsaw?

  48. TotalArsenal says:

    Beegee 🙂

    World class is being able to deliver at the highest stage, which does not necessarily mean winning, as it is a team-sport. It is being the very best in your position(s) and proving that in the key encounters.

    I wrote the post because the term world-class is so readily being associated with van Judas, and I hate the guts of him hahaha 😛

    And Lewandowski’s performance deserved a mentioning! 🙂

  49. TotalArsenal says:

    HH 🙂

    Hope you recover well, and I am sure you will come back with a vengeance this afternoon! I like to tease as well hahaha 😀

  50. Glic says:

    Morning Snatchasaurises 😆

    ” Nor Hell a Fury, like a Total van Bitterandtwistedstein Scorn`d ” !. hahahaha

    He`s not world class !. It`s like saying Messi isn’t world class because he`s done f**k all for Argentina !. Cant agree Totes and I have already made you an appointment at Dr Glic`s Clinic to have the chip removed !. hahaha

    In reply to 17ht on previous post. I agree, even if we had kept the traitorous clunge, I doubt we would have won the EPL, the same as Manure would have still won the EPL without the traitorous clunge !. However imo, we would not also be having a squeaky bum time at the moment, CL qualification would have been already gained by keeping the traitorous clunge !. The only thing that will justify traitorous clunges move will be CL qualification !. Only winning our 4 remaining games will guarantee at least a CL qualifying tie.
    I`m hopefull we have turned the tide as to being a selling club, but like I said yesterday, having Usmanov as a plan B would be my preference.

    Totes, how about a ” Traitors Gallery ” or “Traitors Corner ” section above somewhere !. With this quote the headline act !. ( sorry, had to take it off another site ! )

  55. TotalArsenal says:

    Admir, you intrigue me with that announcement! 😀

  56. TotalArsenal says:

    Brilliant, brilliant article by LA – thanks for that.

    Re Messi. Yes he is not world class. Simples: he is Galaxy class. He has delivered time and again when it mattered, and don’t start me about his national team and the clown that is called Maradona! 😈

  57. alexgunners says:

    Hi TA,

    ReallyVilePrick is a great striker in the PL. But as you said, he has failed when it really counts. Yes, I am extremely pissed that he has left us and I’m glad that the boy inside him is happy (what a load of $hit), money talked once again and he has jumped ship.

    As much as his goals have been missed by us, I would not want him back and i simply do not rate him highly due to the fact that he is a traitor. In saying that, we did not have to sell him and succumb to his or ManUre’s wishes. A contract does not mean much these days but I guess Kroenke would rather have profit instead of a competitive team.

    In my opinion we need to sign an established striker and also start using Gnabry. The kid has skills and also the strength that we do need.

    Sorry I cant even stick to the topic. When I see that ReallyVile Prick, it makes my blood boil and I cant do anything but bad mouth the prick

  58. alexgunners says:

    Dr Glic,

    How was ‘The dash to the gash’?

  59. TotalArsenal says:

    hahaha Alex Really Vile Prick! What about Rotten Vile Prick?! 🙂

  60. alexgunners says:


    I am happy with that as well. I also welcome any other combinations for that Vile Prick

  61. Glic says:

    Very tiring alex, so I`m going to need a right hand ( he can be left handed aswell ) man to work with me at Dr Glic`s Launceston ( Cornwall ) Lesbanian Impregnation Clinic. Anyone interested ?. Interviews start soon .


    Nice one TA

    Personaly, i would class Van Perise as a world class player, but also say a world class wanker.

    Been a tremondous wanker myself, i know another wanker when i see one, and Van Persie is world class.

    I find it hard to analyse him as a player because my mind instantly switches to how he done the dirty on us. One thing i can say with certainty is that he has a rootless foptball soul. As a kid he probably grew up supporting several teams, one day donning a Barca shirt the next an Arsenal one, etc.

    I dont trust people like that. hahaha

  63. malaysian gunner says:

    I hope Arsenal willplay like Dortmund and BM.They don’t indulge in excessive passing and especially shoot on sight. That was howw the Polish striker plundered four goals. I can’t see any gunner scoring a hattrick,let alone four goals.
    Over to you,Wenger.

    A well written and unusual Post, TA, 🙂

    I wonder if any of us can be objective about RvP, but it is hard to disagree with you.

    Oddly, Bendy seems to be a good International goal scorer, whereas RvP is not especially and neither is Lewandowski. I know who I would want at Arsenal — and it is not Bendy.

    Funny old game football! 🙂

    Glicster I thought you had an all weather erection, or was that Vickers?

  67. Glic says:

    Hi Redders 🙂

    You may not like bendy back, but some one on here….saying no names, but lets just call him Homo Harmony for the sake of it, wants a couple of German Benders !. hahaha

    Glic, You must have frightened everyone away with details of your wooden erection.

    Mind you VCC must have the hump.

    it was reported that a guy holding on to a Zimmer frame was seen chasing an old biddy down the aisle in Tesco’s, she was also holding on to one, but she was easily showing him a clean pair of heels, and her camiknickers!

    It will take him at least a week to get his breath back! 😀

    Just checking in only to find you fickle fingers are still hiding.

    Arsene Wenger has resigned!!!!!

    No he hasn’t —- just trying to get you to come out to play.

    I definitely can’t be subjective in this topic. I’ve suggested to people from Detroit that he is a member from KKK, the people from Salem that he is a witch, and the people of Asgard that he is a frost giant. I despise him like no other!

    Lewandowski is a ripper. As my favourite non-Arsenal team it is great seeing them do so well. I hope they take out the CL this year. It really is hard to not be envious of their team. Subotic, Hummels, Reus, Bender, Piszczek, Błaszczykowski… list goes on! great team!

    @ HH

    did the client touch you? If so you have been drugged my friend, by none other than Terry himself. I know because he tried the same thing with me, unfortunately for his sick experimentation i was in the placebo group so nothing could numb the pain!

  72. Red Arse says:

    Well, well TA, there you are — like the Genie in the bottle, Glic must have let you out, or given it a quick rub!! 😀

  73. Red Arse says:

    It has bloody worked — peeps have suddenly popped up! Don’t tell Glic!! 🙂

    Now I have to go for a while — isn’t it always the way!

  74. Glic says:

    Hahaha Redders. Even if he had caught her, he would not be able to remember what it was he had to do !.

    The chap painting the frame is a Gooner !. So I`ve been chatting for hours as he`s been painting it with Red Oxide. He said that if I carried on talking about Arsenal he wouldn’t finish it `till midnight !. Seeing as I`m going to play 5-a-side soon,I`ll will hold him to that time !. So I`ve tied and gagged him in my workshop and put a paint brush in his mouth so he can paint the inside while I`m gone, I can see his little face pressed up to the glass of the patio doors of said workshop from my gooner office and he`s writing something on the glass with the paint brush…………… ! EM PLEH ESAELP ENOEMOS…. I cant understand it, maybe he`s writing something in Cornish like,…. see you later fellow gooner buddy !.

    I hope you will borrow Wenger additional £15m to add to his £15m before going for him.

    Anybody .. Juergen Klopp for Wenger? Maybe time for Wenger to move to management. If Arsenal don’t qualify for CL, i am done playing FIFA and following soccer.
