Of course, the last Five years conveniently just misses the signings of Richard Wright, Van Bronkhurst, and Gilberto for a combined fee of around 20 Million, and if i remember rightly Wright was sold on the next year for a couple of peanuts and a half of heineken.

Having said that, i agree with you to an extent in that Arsenal have never been big-money wastrels. Spurs and Newcastle are light years ahead in that particular race, although i feel West Ham are trying their demndest to catch up.

Totally agree with the switching clubs though - I chanced my arm at developing a love for Swindon town when i moved away. Just not gonna happen - I definately have an affinity for them, but the love only really comes to the surface for a certain team that i don't see often enough.

i'm really starting to wonder about this 'net' spend rubbish that bug clubs seem to be quoting to try and prove their worth.

the larger and richer clubs can afford to buy kids and pay them money to sit around earning a shit load while they wait to see if they become stars.... if you were to compare wage bills in with transfer fees you would get an idea of the difference in spend.

fabregas was a barcelona wonderkid... hardly finding a diamond in the rough.

The debut against Oxford (FAC) and the goal he scored against Middlesbro in the Mickey mouse Cup was pure Dennis Bergkamp, our only criticism of bentley was he lacked patience, and a little agression. He has gained the latter, and made a virtue of the former.

Okay change the parameters - its just Wenger finds more reward in making the best of the talent. He is actually dangerous when given lots of money. Henry was a big signing, so was Wiltord. But he knew both players personally.

Wiltord is still our second biggest signing.

the arsenal board consistently brief the Press that money is available. It is just that Wenger chooses not to spend it like that.

He signed Kanu, when no-one else would take a risk with his Heart. He signed Overmars when no-one else would take the risk with his knee. We got two patchy years out of Kanu, two brilliant ones. We got 2 excellent seasons out of Overmars and sold him at 500% profit, to barca. He signed


All managers make ropey signings, but Wenger's record is amongst the best in World Football.

If he became Manager of Rovers tomorrow, would you complain? Or would you just bow down to the Gods of Football, and praise the fact that you would never have to watch Robbie "Triple-Pike, and Double Somersault" Savage in your team, ever again!

LOL. Oh dear. If you're applying that sort of idiocy, then we took away 3 points yesterday.

In all honesty, yes i'd complain.

Three years ago - I'd have bitten your entire arm off, let alone your hand, but Sparky is putting together a good team here, in the right way. For all the abuse we have had from the media and certain managers ;) much of it is undeserved, and generally wheeled out with the other tired old excuses.

I think we've done what Arsenal did all those years ago, and managed to find a manager that either suits the club and it's set up, or is able to turn the club to thinking his way of doing things.

Both Hughes and Wenger have undoubtedly "got things right" at their respective clubs over the years, and i don't think fans of either club would swap.

I take it you are saying Robbie dives - something of course your players could never be accused of.

You make some very valid points Phil, and I enjoy hearing them - but then you come out with that sort of rubbish that just makes you look like you have no idea what you are talking about.

If you had any idea about football, you'd see yesterday was simply a good old fashioned, hard game of football, and the Rovers only gave as good as they got. Your players miss tackles, went in late and got booked too. Taking out Nelsens two yellows, you had just as many bookings as us.

Plus the fact that Wiley was wearing a red shirt.

I'd say you were lucky to get away with a point

Okay, so he's a soft target, but you can't help liking the guy. His dive was the funniest part of the match. Made me smile.

Robbie is what Robbie does. You know what you get, and you will always get the same.

lighten up a little.

the second funniest moment was when he chased 30 metres to challenge Wiley in the Centre circle, and expressed his dismay with a huge Gallic Shrug, and upturned Palms.

When he retires...a life on the Boards as a Blackpool pantomime Dame could be his for the taking!

Nah, for anyone at the match it has to be Lehmann's loo roll incident as the 2nd half kicked off :lol:

I felt that we lost two points because of trying to defend too deep a 1-0 position, with a dodgy referee, and a committed opposition. Oh, and a dodgy keeper, 2 years past his best.

I suppose the Guy will grow a pony-tail and start appearing in dubious BBC reality TV Shows next. (one step up from german Porn)

I think the criticism that Arsenal receive for \"diving\" is totally unfair, but it is part of popular football culture, just as much as Blackburn's rough-house tactics. Both have a grain of truth, both are exagerrated by a lazy, Avaricious medi

van persie received a lot of the said rough tactics, and received little or no protection from Wiley. Often Wiley gave the decision to the 15 stone defender standing on RvP's head. The guy took the law into his own hands, and was wrong. He is supposed to have grown out of that. He could be an excellent player, but the jury is still out.

In his defence in Spring 2005, he scored an excellent goal in an FA Cup semi final, and nearly had his head removed by the elbow of a frustrated Rovers defender. He never got to celebrate the goal. That \"foul\" went totally unpunished by Ref, or FA. Yet.. If an Arsenal Player had done that it would have been on the back pages/Sky Sports every day until the player was banned for 6 matches. We get crucified by the ManU/Chelsea loving media.

What about Reyes then? Your biggest signing who was a failure but covered it up by saying he didnt like the climate.

I hate playing Arsenal, not for all thier skill and abilty, but for the blatant timewasting and diving. I dont know how your lot can put up with it, it would drive me mad.

Notice it is only Arsenal that have a problem with how we play. Ferguson (1000x the manager Wenger is) has never complained about it.

Pull your head out of your arse and see the light mate, Arsenal cant cut the mustard with the top 3 anymore and are sliding into obscurity. Eduardo is shite, never looked like doing anything apart from gettin booked.

*yawns*

Your delusions are getting boring now. If we've got a whole three years of incidents to pick from, we'll be able to slaughter you bringing examples of nasty Arsenal fouls, mate.

Van Persie should have been straight red carded yesterday for easily the worst foul in the game. Flamini and Eduardo should also both have picked up two yellows each for dangerous play with the manner in which they went (or didn't in the case of Eduardo) for headers. Fabregas should have seen red for his deliberate handball on the line, yet the dodgy referee saved you and gave a non-existant foul.

Pull your head from your arse and sit down and look it the highlights again. Then realise what a tit you're making of yourself.

I'm started to agree with Blackbat - you are totally deluded. Todds elbow on Van Persie 2 years ago wasnt punished because there wasnt any evidence to support punishment. You could see from the TV replays that Todd was looking in the other direction, and Van persie ran into his elbows.

But that is in the past. Blackburn's supposed Rough house tactics are only highlighted when arsenal come to town, and that is because we know how dangerous they are on the ball, and close them down quickly, and get the challenges in. Sometimes they are slightly late - and when that happens, we take the bookings like men and get on with the game.

When something doesnt go the way of your lot, they go to ground and start crying like children. Football is a mans games, and contact is inevitable. IF you dont like it - go and watch netball.

You didnt trouble our defence at all apart from your goal. i cant remember Friedel having another save to make. In the end, we should've had the three points
