Arshavin DEAL OFF!! Arsenal are a f**king laughing stock.

SSN Confirmed that Arsenal will not meet the demands for long term target Andrei Arshavin.

Arshavin had flown to London in anticipation of signing for Arsenal today, however it’s understood that his journey was in vein.

The Gunners had said they will stick to their principles throughout the saga and now it appears their principles will cost them their man.

The deal is off!

So after 4 weeks of trying Arsenal wont pay his wages! So what was the point is wasting so much time on this player???

We must of known what wages he wanted at the very start?Just like the Alonso and the Inler deal. We missed out on a player coz we are tight!

What a shambles the club has become! f**king laughing stock,shafted again, wenger youve let us down yet again.

  2. B-Rog says:

    Laughing stock is right. I rolled with laughter when Chelsea were gazumped for Robinho, but we just miss out because we’re too tight. Surely an unexpected cup replay makes enough money to pay the difference at £3m income per home game. Or is it just SSN keeping us muppets glued to the channel?

  3. Annoyed One says:

    What a joke. This just sucks.

  4. Bruce says:

    by “us” i take it you mean the bandwagon fans who joined 5 years ago? just checking.

  5. stevo says:

    does my fucking brain in mate

    this season is fucking bullshit.

  6. PS says:

    It’s not Wenger – it’s the board. They need to get this sorted before 5pm.

  7. keith says:

    christ. how depressing is this?

  8. Youngy says:

    Anyone have an email address for the club? I think we should all email them and tell them what a bunch of wankers they are we have gone form invincebles to the most vulnarable team in the league! Total Tossers!

  9. manuel says:

    SACK THE BOARD, SACK THE BOARD, SACK THE BOARD!

    3 weeks of fucking time wasting trying to sign the 6th best player on the planet on the cheap. who the fuck do our board think they are!? how can it take 3 fucking weeks to determine we cant afford his fucking wages?

    our board has turned us into a joke. this is not wengers fault. clearly he has done an amazing job keeping us in the champs league for the past 3 seasons anyway when we have fuck all money.

    BOARD OUT! fresh bloody required.

  10. Sam says:

    Shoot me now!!!

  11. Craig says:

    as you have said its disapointing, that we have missed out on our transfer target
    i feel that we had put all our eggs in one basket, in the hope of signing arshavin, now we have left it to late to bring anyone else in

    In a way im pleased it has ‘reportably’ fallen through, coz he wasnt the play we needed

  12. Tom says:

    SSN have been wrong pretty much every time they have reported an Arshavin story in the last few weeks, so I’m praying they are wrong again.

  13. Tony Adams says:

    I was never keen on Arshavin, but the fact that he is the only player we have tried to sign, and now we are going to let him go, makes me sick! we needed at least three signings and we won’t even sign one! What a fucking farce this club has become. Arsenal used to be a name that commanded respect, now its synominous with under-achievment and lack of ambition! AND YOU CAN STICK YOUR 2 YEAR EBOUE DEAL UP YOUR ARSE!

  14. louis says:

    this is why arsenal does their transfer buisness outside the eye of the public because if they fail they know the backlash and wow how they would receive one if they do not sign aarhavin

  15. Simoin says:

    Why bother spending a month negotiating a fee without checking what the player wants as wages? What a joke. Where’s the DCMF & CB we desperately need? We’ve wasted the whole window chasing this guy when we need players much more in other positions. Why bother with the new stadium??

  16. thegoonerforum says:

    Skysports.com understands Tottenham Hotspur are set to sign Inter Milan winger Ricardo Quaresma on loan. Quaresma has endured a difficult time at Inter since joining the Serie A champions last summer in a big-money deal from Porto. He has struggled to win over the Inter fans and was jeered by home supporters when appearing as a substitute in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Torino. The Portugal international has also been left out of Inter coach Jose Mourinho’s squad for the knockout phase of the UEFA Champions League. With the transfer deadline approaching, it is now understood that Quaresma will spend the rest of the season at White Hart Lane. Sky Sports News revealed on Sunday night that Spurs are hoping to bring in two loan players before the window shuts at 5pm on Monday. A deal for Quaresma could also fuel speculation regarding the future of Aaron Lennon amid reports Liverpool want the winger included in any deal which would see Robbie Keane rejoin Spurs.

  17. Ian says:

    Fucking whingers.

    And it’s vain, not vein.

  18. bewster says:

    its not his wages its the 2 clubs still cant agree a fee when we were linked with him at the start i said no way but looking at the way we played against everton and west ham we really could do with a bit of creative magic

  19. thegoonerforum says:

    1001 Ok. Dennis Lachter has told Sky that the deal is off as Arsenal simply can’t afford Arshavin. Whilst no fee has been agreed, the sticking point appears to be Arshavin’s wage demands, with suggestions that we have offered just half his current wage packet.

  20. greekgooner says:

    deal was never gonna happen…its all bullshit so they can say ‘we tried’. what an embarassment we are.

  21. dazz says:

    what a fuckin joke this bunch of tight cunts should sell there shaers if this doesnt cum off,,,,,, hill wood out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. alan says:

    Read somewhere that the Arshavin deal was just a smoke screen and we never really intended to sign anyone.
    She season shit team at the moment!!!!
    Wenger only done well with the majority of players he was left.
    Adams etc etc etc

  23. KEV says:

    after bowing down to adeycan’t score anymore wage demands we piss about with arshavin
    good old arsenal sticking to there pay policy again we are going no where and this does not
    send out good signals for future signings unless we troll unganda or nigeria for some more 17 year olds keep them for 3 years then send them out on lone to some little known spanish club i’m pissed off with football

  24. Snow says:

    On his way to the Airport? His gonna have a long wait in the terminal

  25. Bill says:

    There is more to this than meets the eye.

    It goes both ways, if we knew his wage demands early doors & still pursued him, then he must have also known the maximum level that we would go to…….. and he still flew in.

    This is not over boys.

    The delay is that Gazidis is involved and its his first contract in his new role so he is playing it by the book.

    Arshavin will sign.

    Gooner Glory

  26. northbanklegend says:

    The board needs to resign.

    We have been chasing this guy all window and only now we realise we canno affrod his wages!

    Bring back Dein, he knew how to close a transfer deal.

  27. thegoonerforum says:

    Greekgooner!
    I agree with you mate. Thats why this was posted a few weeks ago!
    https://thegoonerforum.wordpress.com/2009/01/26/arsenal-never-wanted-to-sign-arshavin-its-all-spin-from-the-board/

    IT was all spin and bullshit from Wenger and the board.We never really wanted him

  28. Filthypunk says:

    You can only hope the masters of the universe in charge of the demise of Arsenal as a massive club know something we don’t i.e transfer fees soon to be outlawed, wage caps are round the corner…otherwise what the fkc is going on? We are obviously not measly payers as our annual report states we pay as much as United and Sol and Henry were on 100K a week but as above, how can they get him here after all this protracted negotiation and then offer him a 3 year deal or whatever. Wide midfield is the problem – we’ve not flair at the moment and Arshavin would have given us some hope of getting this season back on course. I’m selling my season ticket on anyway next season – too skint and too wound up by throwing good money after bad for the last few years.

  29. TW14_RULE says:

    One day, Arsenal Board will realize that Fans are also important part of the club, For the past few years We have been gasping but always survive for Champion League place, But this Season is the season that Arsenal Board will pay for thinking about themselves making profit.

    Arsene keep saying that we are a healthy football club. Healthy my ASS, we probably end up below everton anyway. We just hopeful that RVP, TW, FAB will still be patient enough to be with us.

  30. danny says:

    listen lads, this is fucking wengers fault, the board hae said he has the money to spend if he wants, but he’s just being a tight arse, as per fuckin usual, get him out, ive had enough of him wasting our fuckin money on jokes like bendtner and song, when he cud sign someone for 15m, who would earn us double that back in 6 months by getting us into the champions lesgue, wenger might have a degree, but he is fucking thick in my opinion if he cant work this one out, he acts as if its his money, and he needs to save it for his kids college funds, but they will probably go to some shithole college, cos he wont want to pay for them to go private,

    if the deal is off, and we dont sign anyone, then he best be leaving in the summer, cos 5th place and no trophies is not good enough for us loyal fans, who have stook by him for the past 3 years, when he says the youth would become world class players. im sick to the fucking stomach guys!!!!

  31. William McDonald says:

    When the dust has finally settled we will know whether AW made the right decision not to sign him.If Arsenal finsh 4th AW will be vindicated but if Arsenal are in the UEFA cup you know I know what ought to have been done.
    We were told Arsenal are the 2nd richest in UK but are unable to pay 15 million for AA. Last autumn the diamond merchant was quoted as saying if AW wanted 30 million to buy someone he could have it. That was bf the credit crucnch.
    Now I fear that if Arsenal fail to clinch the cl berth,it could lead to abreak up of the team.
    I personally feel AW has taken as far as he could and that his ambition is to land the cl. Sorry sometimes in life you can’t get what you want.
    Btw the oeb and his board are liable for the present Arsenal slump thru not sanctioning any buy. better replace all of them I don’t mind the Russian oligarch.

  32. Toure5 says:

    Next year is gonna be great, shit Thursday nights watching some shit team from Poland….
    This deal was never gonna happen, it was all a smokescreen for the fact that we are skint…we’re turning into fucking Spurs !

  33. dysan says:

    SACK THE BOARD, SACK THE BOARD, SACK THE BOARD! <<< AGREE !!!

    wat da hell ‘peter hill’ doing? just said; I dont care if ‘arsenal’ cant play in UCL if da club will collapse in economic crisis

    holyshit!!!

  34. Bill says:

    As i said don’t panic.
    The guy did not fly all this way to be told this morning that we cannot afford his wages!!!!
    It does not make sense.
    Arsenal have never been sloppy in transfers, maybe tight but never sloppy.
    He will sign TODAY.

  35. manuel says:

    i am embarrassed by our club right now. utterly ashamed of the way we have conducted ourselves in the last 3 weeks. total shambles.

    we do not deserve to be a champions league team.

  36. greekgooner says:

    This is the 1st time i’m contemplating not getting ST renewed. I didnt mind the expense when we were watching good football but times are hard now too and its not cheap. The club are in for a shock next season if they dont buy players and reduce ticket prices.

  37. manuel says:

    oh and arsenal.com are a bunch of fucking stupid cunts.

    how can they fucking post an article titled ‘wenger – we dont need an instant saviour’ just minutes after the arshavin deal was supposedly off?

    fucking patronising, unaware cunts. very much like when they ran a story about eboue ‘playing well’ on the day of the last deadline day.

  38. codza says:

    wenger n his board must be serious we r tired of their sh*t.

  39. Minty says:

    It gets from bad to worse. Is it really worth not getting him. The damage has already been done my friends. We will finish outside the top four. This current squad clearly dosent have the quality or fight to compete for a top four finish. It is as clear as day. SACK THE BOARD I SAY. David Dein and Lady Nina who cared more for this club than those other rich cunts left as they knew the club was going downhill and the rest of the board did not care as long as they get fed, FAT CUNTS!! Its a shame as it will mean fabregas, van persie leaving us and wenger bringing in more young tripe.

    So why did wenger come out with all this bollocks?

  41. gbenga says:

    Somebody wake me up when its 10pm long after d window might hv closed 2 confirm dat we hv actually failed 2 sign him. Nice one board! Sit back & watch d club’s fortune turn around for good indeed due 2 ur tight fistedness. I think I need dat sleep till 10pm cos right now I’m pissed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Damn, such a way 2 treat d 6th world best player. And way 2 go for dat Eboue contract renewal. Sheesh.

  42. danny says:

    cos wengers a prick thats why, he does it to get the fans hopes up, cos they want a big name signing, and then decides we cant afford him, hes probably fucking laughing now, he dunt giv 2 fucks about the fans!!!

  43. jeorge9 says:

    it’s not wenger’s fault we don’t have the money

  44. steve says:

    your writing of wenger 7 hours b4 the window ends?

    your a fucking disgrace mate

  45. gunner8309 says:

    arshavin was never gonna sign for arsenal, its jus to keep us guessing and finally tell us wages not met,

    its all a plan to keep us quiet till last day… i dont think its wenger’s fault, or he is definitely caught between managing a football team and keeping board happy…

    dont blame wenger, if it was any other manager managing this team we’d be in 10th or even worse position…

    either we all strike and not go to the games and make sure they hear us or we support the kids,

    i say, jus support, the DARKEST HOUR IS JUS BEFORE THE DAWN!!!!!

  46. Tommy says:

    Why is it that when someone has an opinion about/slates the club, people question how long they have been fans for? The sort of people who say “Arsene Knows”! they don’t let anyone else have an opinion!! wank stains!

    On to my point……..

    Been a s/t holder for as long as i can remember, seen a lot of sh*t over the years and in recent years seen some awesome football! and we have 4-5 first team players at the moment who 5 years ago would not even get on the team sheet.

    Eboue, Denilson, Song, Bendtner & Diaby (although the last one is showing some promise of late!)

    Not good enough.

    For the sake of £2m we missed out on Alonso in the summer! what a difference he would of made to our season!! Now we are seeing it again for the sake of a few extra quid…

    “It is unwise to pay too much but it is worse to pay too little, when pay too much, you lose a little money… That is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do.

    The common law of business balance prohibits paying too little and getting a lot… It cannot be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run.

    And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.”

    John Ruskin (1819 – 1900)

    Says it all doesn’t it?

  47. Paul says:

    I actually feel sick, if we don’t sign him I think I might cry I hate our board what a bunch of twats!

  48. David Ridge says:

    Heard the latest… Spurs have called Arshavin over for talks with plan to nick him. It gets worse. I’ve just emailed Arsenal and told them to tell the board to read this forum.

  49. Rakesh says:

    i don’t think we are a laughing stock..! if the club has a policy for paying a new player i think they should follow it no matter what.. at the end of the day we are a English club with principles which we value most, if Arshavin really wanted to come to Arsenal and leave his old club he must have been ready to forego his wage intentions. Thats how much it means to wear the arsenal jersey with your name on it. U don’t play for money u play for pride and glory.

    If its financially not viable for Arsenal to spend on a player and if the board knows it who are you guys to criticize them?? they know the numbers and they know more than you guys do about transfers and valuation of players..! so its high time u support the club rather than criticize them if u really the Fans of the club.

    If the deal was not meant to be.. it wasn’t meant to be.

    Spurs plan to steal Arshavin from Arsenal – Transfer Talk
    http://www.metro.co.uk/sport/football/article.html?Spurs_plan_to_steal_Arshavin_from_Arsenal_-_Transfer_Talk&in_article_id=515292&in_page_id=43

    Tottenham are planning a cheeky bid to sign Andrei Arshavin after his move to Arsenal broke down this morning.

    If successful it would be a major coup for Spurs and would be a sensational move resembling Emmanuel Petit’s decision to join the Gunners rather than Tottenham from Monaco 12 years ago.

  51. TUNADOG says:

    This is not Wengers fault. We have no money…THE BOARD HAVE TOLD LIE AFTER LIE…Hillwood &Fizman out now bring back Dein

  52. danny says:

    look steve mate, you cant back wenger forever, ive loved what hes done for us for the past 12 years, but he seems to av lost it, and whys he speaking to arsenal.com, saying we dont need an instant saviour, patronising wanker, hate it when he tries to use big words to show off his “knowledge”, the board have given him the money, so if he doesnt spend it, whether its wages or transfer fees, then we go on to win nothing, then he should go, FACT!

  53. Matt says:

    Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha

  54. Tommy says:

    Let them know what you think then

    press@arsenal.co.uk

  55. Bill says:

    PANIC PANIC PANIC………….

  56. John says:

    We do pay high wages. Just not to the right people. That lazy oaf, Ady gets 80 K a week. The quality we have – Sagna, Clichy and RVP get far less. Wenger has lost it. He pays for shit like Sylverster and won’t pay for quality with his I’ll show I can make a silk purse out of a pig’s ear diatribe. Truth is he is destroying our club. Fuck off Wegner.

  57. Toure5 says:

    I wouldn’t put it past that twitching ugly tosser to get him, just to piss us off…

  58. SACK WENGER says:

    it’s obvious that there needs 2 be changes at arsenal like getting new owners as those fags don’t contribute shit 4 the transfer those fags take that money 4 themselves. arsenal is like the bermuda triangle money goes in and don’t come out. FOR FUKS SAKE OPEN UR EYES ARSENAL IS THE JOKE OF THE PREM

  59. Ediz says:

    What a load of SHIT!!! FED UP OF ARSENAL!!! Every club in the top six have spent more than us during the tranfer windows!!! What a joke we will be lucky to finish 5th

  60. Marco says:

    I honestly do not understand why everyone is so beat up about this? Did any AFC supporter really believe we would sign him? Itt wasnt going to happen and we all know it. Sorry to say but if a club wants 20mill and u offer 12mill you must know it aint gonna happen. I think Zenit eventually accepted and then AFC made a rudicolous wage offer to get out of the deal. This is just like the Alonso deal. We are supposed to believe they tried. . . Funny how City can wrap up a transfer in minutes if they want a player, but we cant in 4 weeks. Writings on the wall guys, we are playing UEFA cup soccer 2009-10. GREAT! I think its time we boycott games, start marching to the Emirates and demand honest answers. I dont give a fuck who is on the board and who owns shares at AFC, without our ticket money, they dont have a cent to pay water and electricity. Where will that leave them.
    It baffles me how we can quibble over a few mill pound (Apparantly 3!!!!) when we stand to lose in excess of 50mill by not playing CL. Fucking incredible. And then they say Wenger is a good businessman. Fuck, im not and i can even figure that one out. . .

  61. Tom says:

    I don’t think the deal is off yet. The ‘key figures in the deal’ are blatantly just Lachter and from what we’ve seen of his comments and responses to our calls/texts he seems to say pretty much anything he likes. I imagine he may be trying to engineer more interest even this late in the day. This is agonising.

  62. GoonerPete says:

    He’s probably not going back to Russia.

    He’s probably going up the road to spurs or trying to get a flight to Manchester because they will pay him and his club what they deserve, rather than us who disrespect evryone we deal with, with bullshit offers.

    Just one more embarrasment in a long line of them these days I’m afraid.

    By the way. All those blaming the board I think are wrong. If AW wanted to up the bid by 3 mil, they would have done it without question. Wenger dictates the transfers not the board.

  63. SAM says:

    nice one Matt, o happy days…. lol

  64. Marco says:

    By the way, Rakesh, u live in dreamland. Would u want to play Championship football with a bunch of guys who play for pride blah blah blah. . . Thats such a patronizing and silly comment i cant believe someone actually wrote it

  65. scott says:

    wenger cant go now and so can the board, how much will arsenal lose if they dont make the champions league?

    more than 15 million, stop being tight you french sinile twat

  66. scott says:

    even spurs are signing players, its getting too much now

    get lost wenger

  67. Minty says:

    Absolute joke. Tottenham (this window alone) buy palaicios(£14 mil), Defoe(£15mil), Chimbonda (£3mil),Cudicini, now they are looking at Robbie Keane and Quaresma. Arsenal need to buck up there ideas. If Tottenham can spend that much in january alone. We should be able to afford £15 million which is cheap for a player like arshavin. Tottenham offered more in the summer and it was rejected. This is a fair price for him. Arshavin came here from dubai and Arsenal take a stinking dump on his face!! Typical Arsenal of late.
    BOYCOTT BOYCOTT BOYCOTT BOYCOTT BOYCOTT BOYCOTT

  68. V says:

    If we dont sign Arshavin or someone and we end the season without any trophies,I will never ever buy an Arsenal Jersey again.

    This shows Henry and David Dein were right to leave

  69. gunner_09 says:

    4 yrs widout any fuckin silverware..!! each time i stand against a MANU friends i get bulldozed ..they keep oo saying nothing won in 3 yrs n i know that is wht matters the most…to fucking hell with passing football n bullshits..!! bring home the trophies..but how..with this joker of a team…RVP will go in the summer if we dnt qualify for CL..n y wont he??….i thought we needed at least 2-3 quality signings…Wht th fuck the current board thinks…fans are for fun..!! they live on us…fucking spuds cn splash the cash n we cant..who the fuck is denilson…he wont even make to any of the other top 3 clubs reserve teams..no penetration no clever runs..the fucker keeps on playing square passes all day long..agreed that he has improved, but the fact remains is that he is not that good enough…n we dnt have a decent short stopper either..almunia is no good to be under the bars of a top top club lik arsenal..keeos on making fucking mistakes…!! bring back dean…now…

  70. noel reynolds says:

    pathetic. what was the point in spending 400m on a new stadium if this was what was going to happen. i suppose saving 3m now is better than losing 40m next season. will be interesting to see crowd’s reaction on tuesday night. i love the way the optimists on here still think the deal will happen. no chance. as i said before we are pathetic. we needed 3 players in the summer before we sold 3 players.

  71. Matt says:

    Anyone wanna bet Ashavin scores the winner against us at the weekend? 😦

    someone should be fooling me for i cant believe this

  73. charilaos says:

    WHY GO TO SO MUCH TROUBLE TO GET A PLAYER IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO SIGN HIM??????????????????????

    WENGER STOP MAKING PROMISES YOU CANT KEEP AND STOP LETTING US DOWN.

    ARSHAVIN WAS DESPERATE TO COME TO ARSENAL AND WE LET HIM DOWN TOO.

    THE GUY GOT AN A PLANE AND CAME HERE TO SORT THIS TRANSFER OUT AND NOW HE IS ON A PLANE BACK HOME TO PLAY FOR A TEAM THAT HE DONT WANT TO BE AT.

    IS THERE SOMETHING WE DONT KNOW??????????

  74. Nwankwo says:

    Brian Clough took forest to the top of european football and all the way back down!

    We need to act NOW!!!!!!! Invest in the team.

  75. Marco says:

    What baffles me is that Villa are signing more players. They now after Micah Richards. But we at AFC want to be realistic in our approach to the transfer window blah blah blah. Driving me fucking insane!!!!!!

  76. danny says:

    arshavin is an arse aswell, he is as bad as robinho, if he wants to play for us, then agree to a pay cut, and play in a league where people actually watch… we shud just offer him 80k, cos that wud be enough i reckon, and the fuckin joke who misses from 3 yards gets that much, so why not arshavin???, fucking disrespectful to offer him 50k a week, when silvestre gets that much, and song and eboue are nearly earning that much.

  77. steera1 says:

    We are a laughing stock, this is the board not Wenger, the reason I say this is beacause he used to sign top players Overmars/Henry/Wiltord etc but the board are lieing about funds we have not got.

    What i cannot belive they only had one target we had a chance to get get Mbia just for 5 million but put all the eggs in one basket.

    We need a cash injection from somewhere

  78. NICK says:

    PLAYERS DON’T GIVE A TOSS ABOUT US, THE BOARD ARE LAUGHING IN OUR FACES, AND WE WILL RENEW OUR SEASON TICKETS LIKE LEMMINGS…I DON’T THINK SO. THOSE THAT ARE BLIND IN LOVE WITH THESE FOOTBALL CORPORATIONS HAVE SOMETHING MISSING IN THEIR LIVES…..WAKE UP AND SMELL THE SHIT..THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT US SUCKERS. DON’T RENEW. SIMPLE.

  79. Tony Adams says:

    I think there should be a book of Arsenal patronisations. They could sell it to spurs fans in their club shop. Who can forget classics like: “Eboue can be our pass-master.”, “We can come back if we are consistent.” and the latest nugget: “We don’t need an instant saviour.”

    I’m sick of being treated like a fucking child, I’m sick of watching a shit team and I’m sick of Wenger telling me these same players are as good as the invincibles and not to judge them, or him until the end of the season!

    The fact is I am judging now, because seeing is believing and he ain’t good enough and neither are his shit players. We don’t just need a saviour we need a fucking miracle!

  80. Bill says:

    ARSHAVIN WILL SIGN TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Have some faith

  81. Minty says:

    £15 million is a bargain! Sell adebayor for £10 million sell eboue for £5 million. Done. We have the £15 million

  82. greekgooner says:

    the board are lining their pockets and all they are interested in is building flats and hotels. They’ve bought land near Highbury to develop a hotel…tells you all you need to know. Might as well erase Football Club from our name.

    Bring back Dein, at least he was a Gooner!

  83. GoonerPete says:

    Why not protest?

    Stay away from the next three matches and see how they react to that. Granted my season ticket is already payed for, but an empty stadium should show the fans’ unrest, and what they could be losing out on by continuing with this completely unambitious attitude.

  84. RP says:

    Most Bulls**t season ever, I knew we wouldn’t sign anyone this transfer window, it was all a hype, just as always, the board has let the fans down once again. With all that money from matchday revenue, where does it go???
    With the injuries piling up, how can you expect players like Eboue, Song, Denilson and Bendtner (even though he’s making some progress) to put up a challenge to the likes of Chelski, ManYoo and the Yobs on the Mersi. Ok we might not need super duper world class players, but atleast 3 experienced players are needed.
    Every season its ‘the youngsters will come good’ or ‘we’ll be there in the future’, , ok we’ve got it set for the future, but what about now. Ok fair enough, we’ve got our principles that we won’t spend big, but sometimes, it is needed.

    My request to the board is to start thinking about what the fans want, as those who agree, the fans patience has worn off.

    Meanwhile, Villa will slip up and we will get 4th spot or even 3rd as Chelski are losing the plot aswel.

    Keep the faith going. Gooner for life

    By the way, i for one do not care that we dont sign Arshavin, i think he is overrated. I’m pissed cause we not signing anyone! I would prefer us signing Veloso /Alonso or Yaya. All better players and prob cheaper. I for one do not think we need Arshavin, we need stability that one of thos can provide, but alas, aint gonna happen. I think AFC will probably announce later today that we have singned Pillik Pillikcios, some 13 year old from Guatamala who we will send on loan to some obscure club where he will stay for 2 years and then come here to also mean fuckall!

  86. OZ GOONAR says:

    I think Tony Cotte and Chopper Harris are still available and their wage demands are apparently not too excessive.There is still time, we need these old heads to steady the ship until our brave young future stars can hold their own in 2012-13

  87. A real Arsenal fan. says:

    To all the muppets screaming for Wengers head, or the Boards head, you need to realise how fickle and stupid you sound. If you want a club that will aimlessly spend money, go and support Man Shitty. It’s ridiculous that you claim to be a fan of the club I support, when you obviously hate so much about it.

    So what, we won’t pay stupid money for a player that isn’t worth it? This isn’t Football Manager, it does have effects, on your finances, on other players, on future transfers. I think you should actually appreciate the board for not being pushed about like buying clubs often are. See Chelsea or Man Shitty for examples of paying over the odds. Also, it’s this tightness that got us that brilliant new stadium.

  88. Sogs says:

    Sickening, new ground that will enable us to compete with the best in the world believe me the way we are going we will be struggling to maintain midtable. Spurs making us look like a bunch of cnuts, & soon they will have a ground on our level. they pay 16.5m for Darren Bent, we will not push on a couple of million more. Total disgrace I’m glad i’m out of the country to the point I don’t to take ll the abuse from the boys back home.

  89. hasrul says:

    i agree with u guys..arsenal is just bull shitting this season..come on..buy him for the squad..we’re playing like shit hole..u expect us to win anything??hoho..bye bye this season arsenal..bye

  90. danny says:

    and is anyone else checking the arshavin transfer odds on skybet? hes changing all the time, hes 11/10 to come to arsenal now, 4/6 to stay at zenit, he was 1/8 on to come to us earlier though, then went to 3/1, then 2/1, then 5/2, then 7/4, now 11/10.

  91. Marco says:

    Goal.com says Bolton have made an improved bid for Veloso, but apparantly they wll lose out to a mystery PL club. This has given me hope. . .albeit slight hope. Could this mystery club be us and the Arshavin thing just a smoke screen. What baffles me is that Bolton, Fucking Bolton can afford 15mill. . . what has become of us

  92. Villan says:

    Up the Villa! :0)

  93. Sogs says:

    Marco I think everyone can afford (or are be willing to shell out) more than us

  94. weng says:

    boycott arsenal

  95. snuff says:

    Dein is still sorely missed. transfers have gone to pot since he was kicked out. then hill-wood stabs lady nina in the back…some serious questions need to be raised about PH-W who seems to think it’s some sot of dictatorship

    Without knowing what the wage demands are you are in no place to comment are you? laughing stock? fucking hardly…if you want laughing stock why dont you look 3 miles to the east, spuds can’t even get their ticket price’s sorted and have spent 32 million on shit (assuming that figure doesnt increase again if/when they take keane back)

  96. Todd says:

    Right for a start, i wanna say that how many times have we heard all this ‘he said-she said’ rubbish; contrasting stories from all parties and ESPECIALLY from SSN (for who my respect has deteriorated to almost non-existence)?

    Whether this is true or not, trust me… there is far more happening than what is being said. And btw, it doesn’t make sense for anyone to turn on Wenger. You think this situation is a farce? It would only be worse if he wasn’t at the reigns.

    The worst thing that happened to Arsenal was the exit of David Dein. And the board know it.

    Just KEEP THAT FAITH. It’s what makes us all Gooners.

  97. comeonarsenal says:

    get rid of our jewish tight ass board der fuckin us over so baddly, wenger has money to spend so why the fuck ent we bought anyone???

  98. Sam says:

    What if AA passed the medical and took a photo and back to Russia to pick up few things. Since he will not be playing straight away in the FA Cup. Setanta says Cardiff game is off due to the bad weather today.

  99. Marco says:

    Yep, apparantly its official. We are in for Veloso. Now i love this bit of news, as long as it fucking happens i’ll forgive this whole Arshavin thing cause this sounds better anyway. Younger, cheaper, solid centre midfielder. Just what we need. Can already see him next to cesc

  100. weng says:

    dein is a good jewish man!!!

  101. Tony Adams says:

    Marco – Where does it say anything about Veloso?

  102. OZ GOONAR says:

    did you know the weather on the gold coast is very warm and muggy at the moment and the jelly fish are stinging the awimmers

  103. John Paul Fredrico Carbone Harrington says:

    Wenger has lost it,he has sold 2 many big name players eg.Henry for a cut price,veiera for a cut price,flamini for nowt etc. and replaced them with inexperience.Now we won’t sign Arshavin cuz he won’t give him 100,000 a week but shit fuck adebeyor gets 80k a week and Gallas the crybaby gets 80k.Plus y the fuck does wenger play fuckin bendtner,he is the worst player 2 ever play 4 the club,Rvp was dropped for west ham game and hes been our best player this season and what happended we came 5th.also wenger has only ever bought one good defender clichy,he never bought adams,dixon,keown,bould,winterburn etc. they were there b4 him.He never bought bergkamp cuz rioch did yet he gets praise 4 that,Dein was influencial in the signings of henry and veiera.Without dein wengers a joke,dein was the real mastermind behind the big transfers.To be honest this is wengers first proper squad with no players been bought by previous managers and look were it is in the lge table 5th that prooves wengers is a donut hes lost it his good days av gone.

  104. Sogs says:

    To the real Arsenal fan – Not to be picky we might a brilliant new ground but what’s the point if we are finishing midtable? No champions league football who the hell will want to join us?

  105. OZ GOONAR says:

    sorry gooners I meant swimmers cos awimmers doesn’t make sense duz it eh ?

  106. Tony Adams says:

    SSN are saying talks will countinue this afternoon. But Arshavin is still at the London airport.

  107. GoonerPete says:

    Just heard the fa are looking in to extending the transfer deadline due to the logistical problems the weather has caused.

    This shit is gonna go on even longer!

  108. Gooner says:

    Go support Chelsea you bunch of fucking whingers
    Were 5th in the league and on a 10 game unbeaten run
    If thats not good enough for you then I’ll be glad if you fuck off. Then the Emirates might have an atmosphere rather than just blatant booing.

  109. Sogs says:

    Veloso at least a player we require in the DM position.

  110. Sam says:

    What a load of shit Veloso won’t score goals. We need creative midfielder to help us score more than the our opponents. We don’t want draws but wins to left the club and fans. We needed DM in the summer but after what happend …Cesc+Walcott+Rociky are out Attacking midfielder is priority.

  111. bewster says:

    zenit will reduce their price and arshavin will sign today john cross reporter for the mirror just confirmed it on setanta hes an arsenal fan and wants to see the deal go through just like the rest of us

  112. If it happens that Spurs buy Arsh then i won’t watch any other Arsenal game till the end of the season and when this season ends Arsenal might be in 6th place, Fabregas might finally call it quits and head off to Real or Barca, RVP might seek greener pastures, Wenger should just fuck tha hell out of our club. Fuck that cunt ….I told u this dwanzie had lost it he let Flam go ..a guy who was clearly working his butt off but could afford to pay Ademissabayor 80k per week…and now can’t pay Arsh tha same amount of money or less still 70k i read on Gunnerblog that he wanted to pay him half the amount he has been getting at Zenit. That means Wenger was planning on paying him 50k ..can u imagine that?? Do you think Arsh is mad, stupid or what? How do you from a club that’s paying you 100grand to a club in a crisis and get paid 50k??? Am compiling an article of Wngers Bollox talks …stuff like his comments after the West Ham game on Ademissabayor,…but guys people like G4L want us to be calm and not be worried lest we look like we are glory hunters and some like Johhno want the whole world to believe am one step away from being spuds fan i wonder how they feel now…where are they by the way?

  113. Tony Adams says:

    “Players coming back from injury will be like new signings.”

  114. Todd says:

    stop the fucking whinging will ya? at least wait til 5pm today. Shout ya head off then if ya must but i dont see the deadline passing without any activity…. Velosa or Arshavin.

    Gooners shouldn’t be arguing. it’s the main reason we’re a million miles above those spuds.

  115. bewster says:

    online gooner reporting arshavin at highbury house informed by the arsenal supporters trust

  116. David Ridge says:

    LBC say thier sources have good info that Arshavin is still at the Hertfordshire hotel… not in the back of a cheaffured Ford Sierra going down white scum lane as some report.

  117. wITHOUT ANY ACTIVITY ??? Todd i believe you must be G4L and have comeback with a new User name…..for yo own info the club needs a saviour but Wenger wants everyone to believe that we don’t need a saviour right now and like Tony Adams quoted that dwanzie Wenger jazzing us “Players coming back from injury will be like new signings.” lermme guess Todd? You are one of the faithful gooners who believe and feel comfortable with the rotten state our club is in???

  118. Prof Ballantine Baines says:

    Do you know what the laughing stock is? It this forum and you bunch of whingers.

    Was Arshavin worth £15 million-plus. Absolutely no way. Does he deserve £75k per week. Ha ha, there’s the joke. His people whinging about how much more expensive it is to live in London, how much more a car and a house costs. My heart pumps piss for him if he can’t scrape by in London on 40-something grand a week.

    He’s a decent player, but he has a reputation for playing great for a couple of games, then disappearing. Is that really what Arsenal need? At £75k per week? Also, its not as if he’s proven himself in the Premiership or anything. He could turn out to be another Jose Antonio Reyes, and then all you whingers would really have something to cry about.

    For all Arshavin’s talk about wanting to leave Zenith for a big club in a big league, what he really wants is a big-money move. Zenith also want a wind fall, and Arsenal are dead right not to be suckered by either.

    As for all you whingers, don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll find something else to cry about next week.

    I love this club and have supported it since before I knew anything about anything. I supported Arsenal when they’ve been great and thrashed pretty much everyone, and I’ve supported them when they were crap, played crap football, and won fuck all. I’d love to see us winning stuff again, ripping teams apart, and being feared as much as we’re admired, but I’d happily go a few more seasons in the doldrums if it meant getting rid of the crap fans we’ve attracted in recent years.

    Sack the board? Before you do that, kick out the crap fans.

  119. A real Arsenal fan. February 2, 2009 at 11:38 am

    To all the muppets screaming for Wengers head, or the Boards head, you need to realise how fickle and stupid you sound. If you want a club that will aimlessly spend money, go and support Man Shitty. It’s ridiculous that you claim to be a fan of the club I support, when you obviously hate so much about it.

    So what, we won’t pay stupid money for a player that isn’t worth it? This isn’t Football Manager, it does have effects, on your finances, on other players, on future transfers. I think you should actually appreciate the board for not being pushed about like buying clubs often are. See Chelsea or Man Shitty for examples of paying over the odds. Also, it’s this tightness that got us that brilliant new stadium.

    I want to quote thereal Arsenal fan…cuz apparently for us we arent the real deal cuz we are whining. So real Arsenal fan explain to me…was this so briliant stadium built to host UEFA cups? You call it stupid money??? Temme the 80k you pay to Ademissabayor do you still feel so real now?? I mean you are the real Arsenal fan…explain to us how a lazy ass like Ade gets 80K with those lousy performances of his…You say buying players is aimlessly spending??? How do you feel having the worst midfield in all the top four clubs??? Oh sh!t me prolly we have the worst midfield in all of Europe right now. You say paying Arsh 100K is not worth it?? How many players do you have at Arsenal that have single handedly made an impact on a major international tournament and have single handedly led a club to a trophy in the last three seasons?? Wait a minute you are the real Arsenal fan right? Which means we the muppets calling for Wengers head aren’t real gooners??? Where do you get your facts from dude? Actually i heard therein no more watching Premier League games in Africa cuz the Satelite TV company that had the rights went bankrupt and shut down so i guess the Arsenal supporters those ends have started their protest well. The friggin stadium by the way Real Arsenal fan was built on debt if you didn’t know. Get yo facts right dude before you come here yapping sh!t!!

  120. Todd says:

    How fucking pathetic. And FOR YOUR INFO i am a loyal gooner… and I’m far from happy about the situation, im saying wait to pass judgement at 5. Thats all. Don’t turn on the club you love, thats only gonna make the fucking situation worse!

  121. Prof Ballantine Baines February 2, 2009 at 1:02 pm

    Sack the board? Before you do that, kick out the crap fans.

    I beg to quote Prof Ballantine Baines? The definition of a laughing stock is one Prof Ballantine Baines Cuz how you can go on a forum that is full of Arsenal fans that hold season tickets and label it a laughing stock baffles me. And which reasons is he giving?? Hes comparing Arsh to Reyes who by the way was even better than the crop we have right now playing for us. I remember he used to make break neck counter attacks ..he didn’t get hauled down every time he got the ball for nothing but then you have stupid fools like this Prof Ballantine Baines Who want everyone to believe we are crap fans. Are you mad you guy?? So you have supported Arsenal since you knew anything about anything?? I bet you you still dunno anything about anything right now cuz its only a fool like you who doesn’t know that Arshavin gets 100K at Zenit and you are here jazzing us he wants a big money move??? This is a guy who was paid part the money on his contract at Zenit and remember he gets 100K each week …i really wish people like you would get yo facts right be4 you come yapping sh!t. Dudes these are the same “In Arsene we trust” congregation i have been telling you about.

  122. Dan says:

    Most of the supporters want Arsene to stay but I understand some of them and their frustration and craziness. This is really funny if AA is not good enough for Arsenal, Who is under 15m Pounds…(Eboue). Most of the fans want to have some hope and the solution is one of 2 things. 1-Being in the top 4 comfortably and challenging for titles or seeing the club tray to do something about our bad form by signing someone (or sending death threats to our opponents Goalkeepers ^_^ #this is a joke#).

  123. GoonerVance says:

    Hang the board! We destroyed Highbury for this shit!? All those memories now turned into condos, so we can sign Amaury Bischoff? There’s a big gap between tight and Manchester City, and we are definitely on the lower end of the spectrum. You can argue whether Arshavin would make a difference or not, but fact is people are watching Arsenal now and see the team hoarding cash, dropping points, and the board doesn’t feel a need to do anything? I would welcome a Russian takeover of the club at this point, at least the communists know having success is more important than having the best looking balance sheet.

  124. GoonerVance says:

    To those of you who don’t think Arshavin can make a difference, who do we have on the wing right now? Eboue and Bendtner? Come on guys those two players aren’t even natural right wingers. Hell Theo isn’t even a natural winger, hell Rosicky, bless his heart, is a Cetral Midfielder!!

  125. arsenekidz says:

    I think the whole Arshavin transfer episode now reflects on Arsenal’s Football Club lack of ambition to bring glory and honours.They are ambitious to build a big stadium to generate more income for themselves only.

  126. farrellj2 says:

    This is fucking disgusting!!!! Arsenal are taking the fucking piss

    Everyone Voice your opinions now

    Send this email directly to the board – I emailed press@arsenal.co.uk

    If you think not signing Arshavin will keep all of us thousands of supporters happy you have another thing coming

    I will refuse as well as many others to pay for any Season tickets or merchandise

    The boy is in London, stop haggling over pittance money and pay for him to come to Arsenal

    This is Ludicrous

    How DARE you make a mockery of the fans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  127. William McDonald says:

    This on off AA transfer is giving the gunners a bad name. I hope they don’t get the cl spot and then we shall see.
    The board of directors will then have to shell out hundred of millions in transfer deals later on to get the cl spot.

  128. Latest i gat is that it was scam to get Sky off Arshavin’s tail and a decoy to get Zenit in a scare faw them to reduce the price and i hear a deal is to be done by the end of today still its coming from Sky News.

  129. mooqs says:

    you fucking fake arsenal fans really are a fucking bunch of real loosers because we couldnt meet his demands we should get rid off HILLMAN!!! you fools arsenal are where they are today because of him sticking to his decisions and what he thinik are right now your saying you are all bloody angry or whatever the fuck your saying arsene wenger you let us down who the fuck are you to even say that WHO DA HELL ARE USE!!!!!! you fake americans so what because of his wage demands ANDDD we still have people to COME BACK INTO THE TEAM LIKE CESC, ROSICKY, WALCOTT AND EDUARDO OUR MAIN PLAYERS AND PEOPLE ARE STILL COMPLAINING FUCKING GET A LIFE DICKHEAD!!!!!

  130. mooqs February 2, 2009 at 4:04 pm

    you fucking fake arsenal fans really are a fucking bunch of real loosers because we couldnt meet his demands we should get rid off HILLMAN!!! you fools arsenal are where they are today because of him sticking to his decisions and what he thinik are right now your saying you are all bloody angry or whatever the fuck your saying arsene wenger you let us down who the fuck are you to even say that WHO DA HELL ARE USE!!!!!! you fake americans so what because of his wage demands ANDDD we still have people to COME BACK INTO THE TEAM LIKE CESC, ROSICKY, WALCOTT AND EDUARDO OUR MAIN PLAYERS AND PEOPLE ARE STILL COMPLAINING FUCKING GET A LIFE DICKHEAD!!!!!

    Seriously guys apart from ranting on pointlessly has anyone picked any kinda point in what this dude is saying? Dude what exactly are you trying to say…Which planet do you live on?? Pluto or Mars?

  131. I bet you Mooqs belongs to the “In Arsene we trust Clan” I hear we have four players coming in that will be like new signings…. Eff u dude…he yaps how our main players are coming back. Realism is not so common to some people.

  132. Sky believe that a fee and personal terms have been agreed. However, Zenit are still demanding a sum from Arshavin to sign for Arsenal. This isn’t just a small figure we’re talking about – we believe it’s in the region of £2.5m. No certainties yet.

    That is coming from Gunnerblog.

  133. Jay says:

    Fuck this!

  134. Metal Gear says:

    That what I’ve been doing banging my head against the wall FFS!!!

  135. ivebenconned says:

    in wenger we RUST!!!!!!!!
    how arshavin must be licking as lips at playing the likes of grasshopper zurich next year in the uefa cup….
    Bet our season tkt prices dont go down next season….me thinks the so called 30000 waiting list of fans will suddenly lessen by 50% at least..
    Well done Danny Fizsman and ARSENE” I DIDNT SEE IT” WHINGER..We are the laughing stock of clubs around EUROPE..Give credit to the spuds, they sign players within days, not months…and how much cash do they have??????? They shop in waitrose( although they tend to be out of date stuff) and we shop at ALDI…

    Any other gooners out there who just cringe and look away when wenger is talking about our club?
    Am i the only one who sees him as the Voyeur on Setanta Sports clown?

    Sorry, but ive had enough of being ripped off , we pay the highest season tkt prices in europe and are drip fed little bits of news that lets face it never bears fruit..not just this season but the last 6…

    I go back to my one question that will doubt my disdain of our CURRENT manager…would Wenger have brought DB1O….that was a Rioch signing..thank god for Bruce..lol
    We all know that Wenger would have come up with some bullshit excuse and we would have missed out on one of our greatest players in history.
    Enough said!
    In wenger we RUST!
