A little late on this one, Pips. But a week has gone since he transfer window slam shut last Wednesday. Alot of English clubs used the last day to bolster the squad as much as possible, but I think the real winners were Arsenal. After the 8-2 defeat to Manchester United, Arsene Wenger knew what his weaknessess were and what he needed to even have a fourth place finish. And he went out and got everyone he needed, but one, but that player I can live without. He added players in every position and particularly the midfield and with Nasri and Fabregas sold, any additions were going to help. The lack of creativity in that United match defined the core of what was lacking and a loan move for Yossi Benayoun and a buyout for Mikel Arteta saw us looking alot better in terms of creativity. Arteta really wasn't my pick to replace either of the two stars that left, but with his 5+ years of Premier League experience, his unique style of attacking, and at an older age of 29, something Arsene Wenger needed in his squad, he is an ideal fit to handle the load left for him, besides he is Spanish after all. Benayoun has loads of experience as well to relieve Arteta of these matters and with a few injury plagued seasons the past years, Benayoun is looking to redeem himself to his fans and the league around that he still has the goodies to play at this level. Adding Park Chu Young was a stable addition to help the loss of Nicklas Bendtner. And seeing he scored a hat trick against Lebanon in international duty, it looks like he can bring a really solid goal scoring prowess to the Gunners. And finally, we wanted a BIG transfer. BIG as in a monstrous transfer and Arsene Wenger for sure found what we were talking about and landed a skyscraper. Ever heard of Per Mertesacker? If you haven't, you'll see him soon enough in the Arsenal matches, he stands out.....literally. He'll use his size very well against the likes of bigger strikers around this league and will very much help our set piece defensive woes (stat sheet shows 54.9% of goals scored against Arsenal were from set pieces) Being German, they are known to be well organised and stable in intense situations. Mertesacker may very well be the reason why they are so. I'm excited, Arteta is expected to play this weekend against Swansea and it looks like Mertesacker is set to make his debut as well. Some of the players may be bench players, but its better to see some 26,27 year olds there rather than having all of them below the age of 20.

Ok England 1 Wales 0....... Don?t let the result fool you, this was not a football match it was a Donkey Derby......

http://www.doddinghurstdonkeyderby.co.uk/pages/home.htm

Well Donkey?s playing football .......

Fabio Capello insists his players no longer consider him an "Ogre", however Capello must have been ?Fee-fi-fo-fum?ing? it, as Joseph Jacobs poem: ?Fee-fi-fo-fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman, be he alive, or be he dead, I'll grind his bones to make my bread?........... two steps forward in Bulgaria were swiftly followed by ten steps back at Wembley, I know that Mr K will be Henry Kissinger with bells and whistles, that England only needed to draw, but the grim spectacle left a very grateful Capello a get out of jail free card for Montenegro.....well in fact a draw will do the business in early October...

You know ....had it not been for Robert Earnshaw blowing a glorious chance, England would have been denied a victory, in reality Wales exceeding all expectations, on the back foot after Young's first-half goal, only to stand aghast as Earnshaw when presented with the opportunity any youth team Sunday morning willy wonker would expect to put away whilst at the same time playing conkers with his cousin just six yards out, central position, keeper gone on holiday no longer at home, all Earnshaw had to do was to tap it in, inexplicably and to England fortune, a true water into wine moment, Earnshaw developed the equivalent of tin leg attached to a club foot a perfect example of a congenital talipes equinovarus i.e.a congenital deformity involving one or both feet , when the ball appears the players ?feet? or in Earnshaw?s case ?foot? appears to rotate internally at the ankle so side-footed it over the bar to the utter disbelief of David Speed sitting head in hands and the entire Welsh team mouths gapping like Venus fly traps.


Did anybody see James Milner or Frank Lampard, no I didn?t either rumour has it both were found dead in a river, wearing England shirts and women?s knickers, fishnet stockings, suspenders, and blow up dolls big rubber wobbly love truncheons protruding from where the sun don?t shine, but its ok the Metropolitan Police have removed their England shirts to spare their families any embarrassment.......GRRRRR

Well maybe I was a little too quick to call Arsene Wenger a tight wad .....

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke has broken his silence on the Gunners' deadline-day transfer spending. Manager Arsene Wenger brought in Mikel Arteta and Per Mertesacker but Kroenke admitted: "There's a risk of going backwards if you overreact and start throwing money around in an attempt to solve your problems."......Full story: Caughtoffside.com

And as for Chelsea .....
Sunday, 18 September 2011, Barclays Premier League, Man Utd v Chelsea, 16:00.......It?s a biggie .....

I know it?s a double, sorry, but I?m going gaga waiting for konkon (Mr K to you and I) to finish his ?twibble?, Mr K took delivery of a special ?Fat Robin? Mix , the new recipe now contains berry suet blended with a wild nut ingredient, the enhanced high oil content gives extra ?beak? energy, essential I am informed for a Laughing Kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae) to let out a serious mapahalakhak......Tumawa si Kayoko nang malakas, a friendly nod in the direction of the naming source, although after Saturday?s Arsenal v Blackburn I doubt whether Konkon will even raise a snort, Grandma was weeping in her dry port and sherry as Arsenal did not have a single Englishman on the park well at least gracing the starting line up, a first this season in the premier league......comments welcome Mr K..... Ho hum lol...

On to the Biggie Man U v Chelsea Sunday 18th 16:00
Man U 3 ? 1 Chelsea, this fixture was never going to be another run of the mill bore, oh no we had a perfect rendition of how Buster Kenton would have taken a penalty courtesy one Wayne Rooney. So just for the record ...

On to Chelsea, Robert Earnshaw come home all is forgiven. Roberts tin leg shuffle for Wales against England has nothing on Fernando Torres.

Let me set the scene ... With just seven or so minutes remaining twinkle toes Torres breaks through scooping a perfect Ramires pass, sliding the ball cleverly from left to right followed by a dainty skip round Man U keeper De Gea, there in front of him the Goal gaping like free willy having a yawn, and somehow Torres managed to look like Jack Sparrow dancing with Edward Scissorhands, whilst his lower limbs broke into a cross between the locomotion and chubby checker having a fit, how much !!!!??? ?50,000,000, I would insist on change from ?50....

So for Torres quote from Romeo and Juliet, ?Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.?

Hey, that's a double post. That's fail, Pips. Moving on, such a disastrous week this past week. After looking like a sure victory, own goals gave this match away and put Arsene Wenger more and more closer to the hot seat. Alot of the bad results can and should be blamed on Stan Kroenke who had the audacity to say such things on spending money. I think in the situation Arsenal were in, spending should've been no surprise and the most spending should've been encouraged. So should have resigning and locking down star players, in which we didnt thus this sticky spot we are at. Arsene Wenger has made the right moves after the United match, whether if it wa enough has yet to be seen, so far the results have not proven so. Normally in a fair position on the table, we are 17th...just one point above relegation zone. We are not Liverpool to have spent time down here. Why Arsene Wenger is untouchable and constantly given votes of confidence and the security of this joob being stated all throughout blows my mind. Is it possible for Ivan Gazidis to see that Wenger's theory is not cutting it in this league anymore? I admire the signings made within the last days of the transfer window, but none of the players were world class...more like a temporary relief for the loss of Fabregas and Nasri...getting Benayoun on loan shows the desperacy we were in to get in talent in midfield. And its not just the signings that have not proven themselves, they have, Gervinho and Arteta already have goals, Mertesacker gave us a clean sheet his debut and etc. The main hole I see is the second back spot. Koscielny to say the least, he has just been awful this year after a promising season last year...He said he would get some muscle to be able to survive to the likes of the bigger strikers, but he looks the same as last year and looks less physical as well...Vermaelen being hurt has surely put a big hole in that spot....

Other news on managers in the hot seat, err rather was in the hot seat. Inter Milan manager, Gian Piero Gasperini has been sacked after just five league matches...One draw and four losses prove why it was even considered, the one that set it off was the 3-1 loss to newly promoted Novara...a disgrace...the loss of Eto'o should not have proved a big loss considering they signed Diego Forlan in his place..
But see? Inter sacked their own manager after just five matches....17th place Inter were in, just like Arsenal...I don't see the difference between Gasperini and Wenger when they have the same record and have the club in the same sticky situation.

Yesterday I eagerly took delivery of my DVD box set of the Women?s World Cup 2011, I have been waiting for the tell tale ring ding dong on the door bell for more than 6 weeks.

After all women have been whacking that 32 panels of waterproofed plastic or leather since 1917 and to men the scenario seems to pose an imaginative challenge, as the Fifa president, Sepp Blatter put it way back in 2004 to promote a more female aesthetic, ?Let the women play in more feminine clothes like they do in volleyball (the beach variety no doubt), they could for example have tighter shorts and shirts, female players are pretty, if you excuse me for saying so, and they already have some different rules to men, such as playing with a lighter ball, that decision was taken to create a more female aesthetic, so why not do it in fashion??..

Well as sure as night follows day or vice-versa Blatter's managed to provoke the indignation and utter outrage of every female footballer, some 30 million worldwide, which threatened to undermine the sport, comments went along the lines of ?typical of a bloke, doesn't know what he is talking about, don't use a lighter ball for one thing, to say we should play football in hot pants is plain ridiculous?....

Having said that and Messrs Kayoko and Lobbo would certainly not need a vote ....Check this out ..?Hope Jive? ........ U.S. women's team goalkeeper Hope Solo is taking part in "Dancing with the Stars"...in Blatter?s preferred attire......

Then there is the other end of the spectrum, the Iranian team barred after President Ahmadinejad insisted they play in hijab and bodysuits ... I kid you not!!!! ....

Turkey vs Iran - Women's Football - Bronze Medal Match - Singapore 2010 Youth Games.flv......Blatter would be mortified what no bikini?s, sorry hot pants ...

Just a sec ....... Bikini Soccer...

There is one glorious aspect, as that wonder summer fortnight proved; the women's game is not simply different, it is the very definition of the beautiful game, possession, passing, control and defense.
Still comparatively small in comparison to the dizzy competitive heights of the Premier League, the players don't throw childish temper tantrums with the ref, they don't make the oscar winning theatrical dives Ronaldo or Drogba are famous for, don?t fake injury, time waste or hog the ball, no shirt pulling, rival teams reside at the same hotels and even visit local pubs to watch matches together, the fans hang on the terraces and don't beat each other senseless, close matches, good football, watch out Guys our time will come.

Kayoko .....?A lot of young managers have got bits and pieces to thank [Arsene Wenger] for... I think he has the greatest of respect of all managers in this country? Graham Turner, Shrewsbury manager...
