On a serious level, and I mean deadly serious, I cannot believe that I am seeing Per Mertesacker being criticized for his Arsenal performances.

The man has played less than a handful of games for the club and some people are writing him off quicker than Mel Gibson's 2008 Maserati.

Ze German has played for his country at least 1000 times and has top-level experience in the Champions League.

Given these facts I think he should be given at least until next week to prove his worth.

We Gooners will give him time because he was a much-needed signing.

And given that Per is a self-confessed Gooner, who used to sneakily watch the Arsenal games at Highbury by peering over the North Bank stand, I believe he will get our support.

Some people need to remember the speed of the English game is far faster than its equivalent in Germany and we all know that Mertesacker isn't blessed with pace.

But I honestly think that after a few nights on the piss, eating some kebabs, and a court case for assault, Per will be up to speed like an Englishman in no time.

It seems more fashionable than Gok Wan at the moment to have a pop at Arsenal and these media 'bully's' are loving kicking us whilst we are seemingly down.

Per Mertesacker is an easy target, and not just because he is taller than the Eiffel Tower, but I have no doubt that he will make the 'doubters' eat their words once he has settled down at Arsenal and has a regular partner at the back.

He has too much class and in six months time that ability will show when he is adapted to the English game.

My Toughest Time As A Gooner

Being a Gooner these days is becoming a very frustrating time.

It seems to me that Arsenal fans are torn more than a Michael Owen hamstring.

The Arsenal faithful appear to be at each others throats and it is a sight more disturbing than watching Harry Redknapp perform a lap dance.

We used to be so united.

Of course difference of opinions is more than welcome. Debate can be healthier than an apple a day.

But most of the time these days Gooners don't debate a thing. We argue.

Some of the things we say to each other disgusts me. We slag each other off like we are talking to a lippy Sp*rs fan.

All because we have a difference in how we think!

I've been accused of being an 'AKB' so many times that I've lost count. Well, I can't count past 1285 but that's not the point.

Because I believe that Arsene Wenger is still the man for the job I have been slated in the past.

Listen, I know that the situation we are in at the moment is down to Wenger and I know for a fact that he has made many mistakes in the past.

I just think he is still the right man for Arsenal.

Just as there are people who insist Arsene can do no wrong there are others who think his time is up.

That's fair enough, it's that persons choice.

But for airing their views they don't need to be vilified more than a person who has just let rip in a packed out elevator.

I want the best for Arsenal Football Club because I love the damned thing more than I love my own country.

No matter what I will always support the club through thick (Rooney) and thin (Crouch).

What gets me down lower than Paris Hiltons thong is watching my fellow Arsenal chums take lumps out of each other. Every day.

Of course seeing, before my very own eyes, Arsenal struggle on the pitch pisses me right off. It pisses me off more than actual urine.

But flicking through Arsenal websites and seeing actual civil war between people who all want the best for Arsenal destroys me.

One of the reasons I haven't written much over the past few months is because I can't handle seeing the infighting. It almost primal.

I'm actually debating whether to continue writing the blog. I want too but it does my nut in when I see Gooners calling each other 'cunts' and other obscenities.

Writing a blog I am there to be shot at. I understand that and can take it but witnessing the way we talk to each other is badder than Michael Jacksons Bad or a bad ass rapper.

There is hardly any respect these days for each other and that is so terrible to see.

Champions League? We Wanna Worry About The Championship!

In my whole entire stinking existence I have never seen Arsenal involved in a relegation scrap.

There is always a first for everything I suppose!

People say Arsenal will find it tough to get into the top four this season.

Well, at the moment, I'd be happy if we finish outside of the bottom four!

In all seriousness I am becoming a little worried. And I don't like that because I've always been a glass half-full kind of fella.

Of course I don't believe we will be sucked into a relegation battle.

I'm still very confident of a top four finish too.

What I am worried about is the fact that we no longer seem to be able to compete with Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.

That hurts me bad. Real bad. In fact I'd rather suffer a year in a room with no doors and Harry Redknapp as my only companion than feel this pain.

I think its time I admit it to myself.

Arsenal are no longer title contenders but are the best of the rest after the Manchester clubs and Chelsea.

My ambitions for my beloved club have been lowered lower than Wee Man from Jackass doing the Limbo.

For the moment our 'title' is fourth place.

Any less and this season will be a spectacular flop. Floppier than a floppy disk with impotence.

One piece of silverware, and I mean ANY silverware, a place in the Champions League qualifiers for 2012 will be a fantastic season for me now.

From there we can build, again, and next season actually challenge for the Premiership title.

Double Standard Mugs

Some people out there make me laugh harder than when I'm watching Harry Redknapp having a twitching fit when S*urs are losing.

Many said Arsene Wenger needed to add to the squad and 'spend some fucking money' or Arsenal would free fall into the Orpington and Bromley Division 5 Sunday league in no time.

Well, Wenger has finally dusted the cobwebs from the Arsenal chequebook and brought in several dead-line deals and all the sudden he has panic-bought!

It does my head in more than Marmite, and I hate Marmite, so gawd knows how Arsene Wenger feels.

Look, don't get me wrong, it would have been better if Wenger had had a settled squad a few weeks ago but it didn't happen.

However, he was rectified that now with some very good signings so how this is panic-buying I will never know.

If that 'diamond geezer' Harry Redknapp had done the same deals as Wenger the media would be absolutely creaming their knickers.

Sky Sports News would be going mental.

Imagine the breaking news banner at the bottom of the TV screen. It would have gone into meltdown faster than Usain Bolt having a sprint on the sun.

Harry would be proclaimed as a genius or the messiah and we should bow before him or his twitch would strike us down in fury.

Arsene still gets stick and he has done exactly what people wanted him to do!

How can he win?

These players that Wenger has brought in are of high quality and still he receives grief.

Its double standards of the highest order if you ask me.
