A Christmas Cracker for Arsenal Fans

Happy Christmas Gooners.

Since the departure of Alex Song to Barcelona, Arteta has got a new role as sole defensive midfield pivot and he has been simply outstanding. The team are playing superbly so far this season and are looking like they could finally end the seven year wait for a trophy.

On top of that, check out his wife!!

Lorena Bernal is an actress and model born in Argentina. The 31-year old of Basque origin was the winner of Miss Spain in 1999 and has appeared in international films and TV programmes including CSI Miami. She has done lots of work in Spain but has put her career on hold for now.

This summer, the couple celebrated the birth of their son Daniel and they also have another boy, three year old Gabriel. Lorena has stated that she will return to work, but not until Mikel’s football career is over.

Arsenal fans obviously want to see Arteta playing for many years to come, but we wouldn’t mind seeing a bit more of Lorena either so perhaps we could persuade her to come out of her early retirement?

    “The team are playing superbly so far this season and are looking like they could finally end the seven year wait for a trophy.” Are you sure you’re watching the same Arsenal? Sounds more to me like you’re talking about Barcelona

    She’s pretty and Arteta’s a lucky man. As for the article -> vain and pointless.

    Arshavins on his way to Reading.

    Djourou’s of’f to Napoli.

    Chamahk’s on loan to Westham.

    Arsenal and Zaha have agreed personal terms but a fee’s yet to be agreed.

    Players in jan which i hope to see arrive, in order of most essential….

    Striker: Lewendowski, a difficult buy so 2nd: G Higuain
    Midfielder: Fellaini with Sunzu, if too expensive:Wanyama
    Defender: Jagielka, or second choice Mbiwa
    Keeper: Begovic, or second choice M Vorm
    Winger: Isco or Ben Arfa, or if British Zaha/N Dyer

    Subs
    Keeper: Szczesney
    Defender: ?Koscielny/Jagielka?
    Midfielder: Arteta, Sunzu, ?Diaby/Rosicky/Eisfeld?
    Striker: Podolski, ?Giroud/Walcott?

    If unlikely Walcott stays would play as ?supersub?

    ________________Begovic______________
    ___________Sacker___Vermaelen
    Sagna___________________________Gibbs
    _______________Fellaini______________

    __________Wilshere___Cazorla_________
    Isco____________________________Alex C
    ______________Lewendowski_____________

    Subs
    Keeper: Szczesney
    Defender: ?Koscielny/Mbiwa?
    Midfielder: Arteta, Sunzu, ?Diaby/Rosicky/Eisfeld?
    Striker: Poldoski, ?Giroud/Walcott?

    __________________Vorm_________________
    ___________Sacker_____Vermaelen________
    Sagna_____________________________Gibbs
    _________________Wanyama_______________

    ____________Wilshere___Cazorla__________
    Ben Arfa__________________________Alex C
    __________________Higuain_______________

    I think there is alot more strength in depth in either choice, players who are versatile, can play along the back, also there are many more attacking opions within our reserves. A proper challenge in goal also as Szczesney will be our number one for a long time yet. Also at left back Verminator Sunzu Jagielka can all play there with injuries concerning Gibbs and Meade.

    Hey bob we dont want to see the material you used last night lmao.

    Totnum almost signed sneijder. And chelsea are interested in ben arfa i think he wants a move as he said in the summer, wenger should sign him instead of zaha. Ben arfa got messi esque skills and dribbles.And he is a great crosser of the ball man giroud would head 20 goals in. Wenger there are players on the market just dont buy talent anymore please we do have to face bayern

    And i think adrian lopez would be good signing cause he is a player we dont have yet in our starting eleven a quick small striker with technical ability dont want ba.

    @leo Yes but the transfer fee is around 9 millio pounds so his salary wont be a problem,, yes if the fee was higher plus his salary it would have been difficult but totnum are strengtening. Wenger cant come up with zaha we want bigger players that can bring it now not in 3 years.

    @Mowember Sneijder to tottenham is impossible,even though his fee may be 9m he wont agree for a wage less than 150k and bale is at 70k at spurs,if sneijder gets that then bale would definitely ask for atleast 120k,then defoe,then walker,kaboul and so on and IF,its a big IF levy really gives them all those salary then Tottenham will be next Portsmouth,oh wait actually Sneijder coming to Spurs wont be so bad for us.

    At least Arteta’s not a bad looking bloke. Some players are pig ugly and manage to score just because of their fame (few have personalities either). Wouldn’t mind throwing his missus around the bedroom this Xmas.

    the chronicles of gerv the headless chicken

    WELL SINCE WE HAVE LOST OUR ATTENTION A LITTLE BIT IT SEEMS LIKE THERE IS SOMETHING THAT WENT UNNOTICED DURING THESE BUSY FESTIVE DAYS AND THAT IS GERVINHO FIRST INTERVIEW WITH THE MEDIA:

    MEDIA GUY:so gervinho,id like to ask you abt how well you think you’ve adopted to life as an professional footballer in england at Arsenal exactly?

    GERVINHO:(with a sub saharan french accent)could you ..eh….use ….eh…. a shorter sentence?

    MEDIA GUY:How well have you faired with life at arsenal?

    GERVINHO:well i believe …eh…… ive faired well you can see the impact i made since arriving till i am now the best player in the team.

    MEDIA GUY:(giggles)um, so gerv i just like to know what do you do exactly when you get the ball?

    GERVINHO:well um ..eh…..um…….eh…….um(with a light bulb on his head)…. i run!

    MEDIA GUY:so what do you do after you run?

    GERVINHO:i kick the ball!

    MEDIA GUY:so where exactly do yo kick the damn ball!

    GERVINHO:hey look guy am not a god or somthing.

    MEDIA GUY:do you know that others players actually know where they are kickin the ball to?

    GERVINHO:well its a very unique attributte only few people like pele or messi have it

    MEDIA GUY:what abt JACK?

    GERVINHO:Hes just damnn lucky!

    The media guy sends a written note to the arsenal manager who just happened to be there witnesing it all stating “where did you get this guy?” wenger replies with a note replying “LILLE,but it was not me”

    MEDIA GUY:so lets shift to another topic,um.. how do you feel to be nominated in the 2012 FIFA’s headless chicken of the year award?

    GERVINHO:me!

    MEDIA GUY:yes,you.

    GERVINHO:how can that be ..eh…um.. i thought Ramsey was the headless chicken.Am not a headless i work wonders on the pitch.

    MEDIA GUY:you dont know how to kick the damn ball!

    GERVINHO:hey i can be everybody but not Messi!

    MEDIA HOLD:you hold the ball for so long that anybody that passes to you gets booked for time wasting!

    GERVINHO:thats not true!

    MEDIA GUY:Believe it!

    GERVINHO:wow! is dat why the coach has been benchin me lately?

    MEDIA GUY:no,hes a quite believing guy he sees talent in the roughest diamonds even if its pure shit!its more to do abt you missing in point blank range in the Bradford game.

    GERVINHO:well i told you am no Messi!

    MEDIA GUYM:Schmucks!WTF is wrong with your hair?

    GERVINHO:(accent changes into scottish)hey,look here guy this is how i were born,somthin wrong with it punk!

    MEDIA GUY:what an accent may i say.But you hairstyle stinks,you have the longest forehead in the world deal with it!

    ANGRY GERVINHO!:hey yo got somthin personal,PUNK!

    MEDIA GUY:hey stop callin me punk you pussy! i bet you miss me with your punch even if i were 2 yards away from ya!headless chicken

    Gervinho gets angry gets two yards close to the media guy and misses!.

    WENGER:hey gervinho stop fighting.

    GERVINHO:bt he started it!

    The only NUFC player I wan is Ben Arfa. I’m fed up of being linked with Demba Ba because he’s cheap and we need a striker. Even if hes having a decent season it’s still not ambitions if we sign him. Knowing our luck his knee would give up.

    Hey Gooners!
    I hope that we will sign Zaha,Holtby and Diame.
    we need someone like Diaby in midfield, sad to say this but our midfield in defence is what has ruined this season.
    diame and holtby are bargains 4&6 million and Zaha cause he’s a great talent and we need a winger. Diame role is obvious and holtby can play where cazorla is and on either wing. and by buying two players that are wingers wenger is showing walcott that he has a place through the middle and that will make him sign da ting!!!!!!!!!!!
    and ofcourse offload deadwood, replace santos,djourou, fabianski, loan out Coquelin.
    EQUALS great squad!!!!!! Possible starting options

    Also we were watching cuenco but that now seems to have faded as he is likely to join Valencia due to wanting to stay in Spain.

    Ba is just whoring himself about, as most players who seem to want to go mention arsenal as a stepping stone, he is flirting with psg and us as a come get me plea!
