Arsenal
 
And the stupid thing their PA announcer does, when reading out the lineups....calls out the first name of the player and the fans chant the surname, in an embarrassing and cringeworthy manner.

Is there any other proper, non-plastic club where such a shameless piece of fuckwittery occurs?

I just watched the buildup for their friendly, and this made my ears bleed.

Stupid idiots.

Most of Europe does it Craig, almost as bad clapping a new sub onto the pitch

little dave hedgehog 31-07-11 05:21 PM

heartless negative bastards :crackoff:

Hmm, they never did it at Lyon, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Debrecen etc, when i've been.

It's seriously shit. :shake:

Fuck all wrong with clapping a sub onto the pitch.

Craig_H 31-07-11 06:25 PM

Arsenal cant even win their own Emirates Cup :haha:

They draw 1-1 against New York Red Bulls...and there are boos from the home crowd at the final whistle :haha:

-V- 31-07-11 06:32 PM

Their defence is utter utter shite. Wengers seriously cracked if he doesn't fix it

Craig_H 31-07-11 06:38 PM

Thing is, they only played against NY RedBulls and Boca Juniors - the two weakest teams (didnt play against PSG). And they couldnt muster a win :D

Rich 31-07-11 07:37 PM

While Hull and Gala are world beaters! ;)

Craig_H 31-07-11 07:45 PM

Arsenal had their first team out.

SB 31-07-11 09:18 PM

We do that at my team, Gold Coast United, over here and see nothing wrong with it Craig

Craig_H 31-07-11 09:23 PM

:haha:

It must be horrible to be judged unworthy by Craig though. I'd imagine you will stop it instantly now, right?

Craig_H 31-07-11 09:26 PM

Hilarious. I didnt judge any Gold Coast team. What Arsenal do is pathetic, for a club like them. I imagine Gold Coast United arent quite the same as Arsenal Football Club.

Why? :confused:

Craig_H 31-07-11 09:43 PM

It's embarrassing, cringeworthy, somewhat americanised and just nonsese :D

What next, cheerleaders?

Put it this way, could you ever see LFC doing that? :haha:

MrsB 31-07-11 09:44 PM

Ah.

Craig_H 31-07-11 09:45 PM

It's up there with playing music when a goal is scored :D I'd be so embarrassed if we ever did things like that. :o :D

We average around 3000 fans per game so the commentator is trying to whip us into a frenzy and inspire the team :crackoff:

:handshake: I hate that too

Also wasn't there someone who played music when they won a corner? :rash:

Tee 01-08-11 09:01 AM

No one beats the Turks when it comes to this kind of stuff. Remember Gala a few years ago IIRC and the tannoy announcer would basically start and join in the chants during the game. :haha: :haha:

Dim Tim 01-08-11 11:53 AM

Is there anything in the world you DO like Craigy? :crackoff:

fah-q 01-08-11 11:56 AM

What do they do if the player goes by one name?

The PA announcer shouts out the first syllable :D And they fill in the rest :haha:

RichC 05-08-11 11:25 AM

have to play Udinese in the CL play-off - not going to be easy for them!

Fernandinho 05-08-11 11:27 AM

As Shaggy just said in another thread, that is without Sanchez and Zapata...

Liverpool 05-08-11 11:28 AM

we want them to go through in a way, purely so mancs dont get extra money

Alex 05-08-11 11:57 AM

I actually quite like the thing they do at Arsenal. It gets there crowd going so there is nothing wrong with that.

So would you prefer every club to be the same?

:handshake:

I entirely agree. How would we be able to feel superior to supporters of other clubs if they were just like us? Why, it would be nothing but self-delusion.

And Inler. And they were pretty average anyway, would have much rather they got Rubin Kazan, that defensive style would have frustrated the shit out of them.

Their 1st leg vs Udinese is on 16th August at Emirates, with the 2nd leg on 23rd August over in Italy.

We play them away on 20th August, sandwiched right in between these two ties. Good stuff - already not being in Europe has the potential to benefit us. :D

Hopefully the tie is left in the balance after the first leg, meaning Wenger will have to play his strongest lineup for the 2nd leg - he may therefore consider resting one or two for our game against them.

Haha that's great news! :rock::rock:

Neil Young 06-08-11 08:23 AM

I'd rather they had the away leg before playing us but you can't have everything.

Harv 06-08-11 08:23 AM

Udinese will stuff them.

Di Natale will run rings around Arsenals CB's

Also, RvP and Nasri are suspended from the 1st leg - and Fabregas is anyone's guess :D

So the chances of Arsenal stuffing Udinese and having the tie sealed from just the 1st leg, SHOULD be fairly minimal...hopefully :D

Although it does mean RVP and Nasri should be fresh against us, provided they are a) not injured, b) not sold.

Craig_H 06-08-11 01:52 PM

They'll be available and fresh against us - but if they dont get a good 1st leg result, might Wenger possibly want to save them for the 2nd leg out in Italy?

Neil Young 06-08-11 02:09 PM

Surely you'd have thought they'd be capable of managing two matches in a few days if they've had the previous weekend off.
