Unofficial Club Statement

86 comments December 9th, 2006

As you will know, the Club consistently sells out its allocation for away matches and the support from the fans has been tremendous both domestically and across Europe. Your commitment to Arsenal Football Club is very much appreciated by the players and everyone associated with the Club.

Those of you attending the above match on Sunday will know there are a number of actions planned against individuals at Chelsea by a small minority of Arsenal fans. Frankly, this isn’t good enough. “A small minority”? You should all be planning action against that Judas, even if it’s as simple as yelling out, “Wanker”. The Club would like all supporters to be aware that anyone not found to be bringing in inflatable mobile phones or fake bank notes will probably be either refused entry or ejected from the ground. Arsenal Football Club would like to stress that it does not normally tolerate any foul or abusive behaviour, but this is a special case. We are working closely with both Chelsea Football Club and the relevant authorities to ensure that Sunday’s match will be played in a safe and positive environment for everybody (except Cole. Wanker).


Of course, that’s just the Unofficial Club Statement. The Official Club Statement is here, and if you don’t want to get arrested or banned or whatever, it’s probably better to follow their advice rather than mine. It’s also Arsene’s advice, and he seems to be gunning for some kind of award in stating the obvious:

“Recently in Paris we had a dead guy in a game and that is not what we want in football. It is not made for that.”

Team news: Djourou is fit, Gallas is not. Philippe Senderos will start against his old adversary, Drogba. Julio Baptista is itching for a game:

“It would be a dream to be picked to face Chelsea on Sunday. I don’t know if the coach will start me at Stamford Bridge, but what I do know is that every player wants to be involved in these games and I am no different.”

…but he probably won’t get one.

Young Guns: Roy Keane wants to sign Anthony Stokes, and Theo Walcott might win the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year.

There’s a possibility I’ll be amongst the Chelsea fans for the game on Sunday, which would be a) hilarious if we won, or b) terrible if we lost. Just terrible.

But we’ll win, surely?

Ps. Great Some minds think alike.
