I like Portsmouth Football Club and Jack Wilshere should go there

Ever since we smashed the shit outta Portsmouth 5-1 in the FA Cup a few years ago I've had a little soft spot for them. It helps that most of their fans now hate Harry Redknapp. I dislike the baggy-eyed bastard too.

That day we were unbelievable and the Pompey faithful were too. If I remember rightly Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira were given standing ovations. How often do you see the home support giving an away team player the time of day let alone applauding them? It really was good stuff.

Since Pompey won the FA Cup it appears things have gone tits up down there at the south coast. I even read this afternoon that Portsmouth have a 'winding-up' petition by HM Revenue and Customs.

Forgive me if I appear ignorant, and I'm not winding you up, but I don't really know what this means. That's what my accountant is for. What I do know is that when those knob-noses are on your case then you are in trouble.

Forget the fact that Portsmouth are bottom of the table because this will be like a cup-final to them. It won't be easy-peasy lemon squeezy.

A cold Wednesday night by the sea sends shivers down my spine at the best of times but I'd find a cold Wednesday night by the sea in front of nigh on 20,000 crazy Pompey fan's a little intimidating.

And that, in my eyes, is the key to this game for Arsenal. Silence those nutters and the game will become a lot easier. If it's anything like that FA Cup quarter final in 2004 you never know it may become like a home game for us!

Talking of cup-finals Arsenal must treat every game like one from now till the end of the season. We cannot go into any match half-hearted.

That is my fear about games like tonight. The players may look at the league table and just expect that their very presence is enough for the three points. At times this season I think we have been more guilty of doing that than Boy George was for hand-cuffing that geezer to a wall.

As I've said, I like Portsmouth but I hope that we smash the shit outta them. After tonight I wish them the best of luck for the rest of the campaign and I truly hope that they stay up.

A player who may help them stay up could be our very own Jack Wilshere. Arsene Wenger has said that the little maestro needs a loan spell away from Arsenal to help his development. I couldn't think of a better place for him to go. As long as they paid him.

Keep it Goonerish.............

Arsenal were breathtaking that day. And Thierry Henry showed his class by clapping the Pompey fans back.

Hey Wrighty, super post...

If Jack goes to Pompey I hope he takes his armbands as they are sinking really quickly.... They are a court appearance away from drowning :(

Cheers Rico.

I'm sure that Pompey will have their mess sorted out.

I reckon that Jackie Boy would love it at Portsmouth.

Rather he went to the Hammers Wrighty, Zola was one of the most gifted and wonderful players I have watched, he could really teach him a lot. Put that with the best attack minded bosses in the world...

Puuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrr :)

How are you doing, long time etc etc :(

rico said...

And Wrighty, did that ugly geezer next to your name once play for the Gooners ;) ;) ;)

rico said...

kimbo - its because he is a Brit - AW never plays them when they are still growing - the guys from overseas are different, they could leave at anytime, and if they do and they have been crocked by over playing, he don't care...

That's my theory anyway :)

Wrighty7 said...

Ha ha Rico. You are right, that geezer next to my name is a right ugly bastard! ;)

I'm cool thank you. How are you?

In recent months, I've hardly had the time to get myself on LG or AR.

Shame because I miss talking to you guys.

Did you have a good Xmas?

lp said...

Happy new year, Wrighty.
