The buck stops with Almunia
February 22, 2011
Right, let me get this much straight… Orient were not up to much, they hardly peppered our goalmouth with a plethora of moves and shots at goal.. did they? so all this rubbish I keep reading about how fantastically well they did… is just that.. rubbish.
I absolutely do not begrudge them a replay, it’s actually wonderful news for the wider economy in general… everybody is ultimately a winner from a replay.
1. Arsenal make another couple of million quid
2. Orient make huge money in their realm.
3. Fans get to see another game.
4. The second string gets another chance to shine for a spot in the first eleven.
No harm done.
However – I am going to tear a few shreds off that manic-depressive Spaniard who apparently is our 3rd choice goalie these days.
As those who follow me on Twitter (@onearsenewenger) will already have read in the past 24 hours… I am fuming at the fella… he has had a hell of a lot of my support in the past few years, I thought he got butchered a lot in the past for no apparent reason, other than the fact he was not purchased for multi millions. He was never a world-class keeper, but he was never as bad as some made him out to be… until now!
Ok he was treated badly by the club last summer when the whole Schwarzer affair was going on… but, when the season started.. who was given the chance to impress.. again? and who failed AGAIN?
He messed it up for us last season with a couple of pathetic howlers, and started this season in the same vein of poor form.
Quite rightly he was dropped (not having any of the injury stuff) and since then the two Polekeepers have staked claims to be the Number 1.
The only reason he has not gone already is nobody will pay him the extortionate wages we are… that’s right, while he earns millions doing bugger all aside from letting dopey clangers through his legs… we the fans are left to watch a pitiful state of a man pretending to be an Arsenal goalie.
The do gooders amongst you… do one.
Not interested anymore… I am the most positive gooner I know.. and I will give every player a bucket load of chances before I turn on them… Almunia has had Blackpool pleasure beach amount of buckets in terms of chances.
He is over for me, the sooner he leaves this club the better… stop ripping the club off for wages as you cannot be bothered to concentrate for 90 minutes if you do get a game.
Useless plankton, you were nowhere in world football before Wenger plucked you from obscurity to the mighty Arsenal…. and this is how you repay us after 8 years? By not even being bothered to work for the millions we STILL pay you?
At this point I would dearly love to write many, many expletives describing the Spaniard.
However, I shall leave it there.
