All Hull City are after is money from Arsenal

In Arsenal FC on March 30, 2009 by Highbury N5 Editor Tagged: , ,

Morning all. How do you interpret this from Hull chairman Paul Duffen?

“if there was an accommodation between the football clubs, that would be an elegant way of moving forward”

Right lets just pretend Cesc did spit at Horton.

What could be an ‘accommodation’ between the two clubs? Maybe it could be an apology from Cesc….but that would draw more media attention and that would hardly be an ‘elegant way of moving forward’, would it?

On first, second and third looks the meaning behind that sentence is: “give us a few hundred thousand and this issue will just, simply…disappear. The report to the FA this morning will just get…lost in the mail”.

Now, back to reality. Cesc Fabregas deserves the players, clubs and fans unequivocal support, there is no evidence against him and his actions since the claim have been those of a decent, respectful young man. He has been repeatedly bombarded with accusations from Horton, Brown, Hull City FC and the cretinous media, he has not once hit out at anyone, all he has done is reaffirm his innocence despite numerous attempts to dirty his character.

First Brown performed a character assassination of our club captain and the club in front of national television with millions of viewers.

Secondly they dug up the Ballack video: Bayern Munich and Fabregas have both said nothing happened.

This whole thing reeks of trying to hurt Arsenal Football Club for sending Hull City crashing out of the FA Cup in the quarter finals, Hull are not the most financially secure club in the league, add that to the threat of relegation, the recession and missing out on a big pay day at Wembley you can see why they are trying to blag a bit of money out of us.

Its not the actions of Cesc Fabregas the FA should be investigating; its the actions of the chairman, manager and assistant manager of Hull City Football Club.

Oh and one last thing: If they wanted the whole thing over and done with as they so claim, why ask for an extension to the deadline for the ‘report’ they are filing? Hmmmm.

Moving on: it seems Mark Randall is on his way out of Arsenal. From watching him personally and talking to Sanderson from Youngguns.wordpress.com last week it looks like he is not going to make it at Arsenal. He has been compared to David Bentley in his attitude and whilst i do not by any means want to criticise a 19 year old’s personality whom i have never met, that is not the example to follow. His performances for the reserves have been appalling of late and with a poor disciplinary record i think he will be off on loan for the rest of the season and then sold in the summer. Its never nice to see a player fall short but i do hope he goes on to have a good career if he doesn’t quite make the grade.

Andriy Shevchenko talks about Andrei Arshavin‘s talent. He knows what he is talking about, shame he moved to chelsea.

This is the best article i have read in a long time, a touching and very real recollection of the most important and fateful season in English football history. Worth a read – trust me.

Onto injuries, the word around is that Niklas Bendtner had a knee problem before the game on Saturday for Denmark, if that is true it is sure to piss off Arsene because its out of order and it will be a setback to a player who was really starting to make an impact. More on that tomorrow when there will be more information on the extent of his problem.

They have broken him and will now send him home:

“There is a high probability that we must send him home to England,”

Thanks Denmark, you really know how to build a good club/country relationship don’t you? Muppets.

Fabregas just can’t seem to get out the limelight at the moment, there is a storm brewing between Arsenal and Real Madrid by the look of things here. Arsene threatened to sue Real Madrid for illegally talking to Fabregas about a move without Arsenal’s permission in the summer of 2007. It is claimed Fabregas talked about it to a Spanish newspaper but i am not sure on the reliability and timing of these comments and i will have a look round to check they are legitimate and recent. I do not want to have a full scale bitch at a club when its an event from nearly three years ago.

But if i find this is true holy mother of God i will have a full scale rant/bitch/verbal explosion right here on this blog.

Oh don’t i just hate the Spanish press and Spanish football clubs…

Just to put everything into perspective on Monday morning, 19 people have died at the Ivory Coast match due to a crush and a stampede due to a collapsed wall. Terrible, brings back images of Hillsborough.

Right, try to enjoy your Monday. Ive got a whole heap of stuff to do including a 5-a-side game that will almost certainly result in one hell of a beating for my team. By god i can’t wait!

Oooops is that my hamstring gone? Shame that…

’til tomorrow

  1. I really thought the 1989 article was good, but as an Arsenal fan I am probably very biased and love the nostalgia.

    Red And White Kop – (Liverpool forums) have some interesting comments from the other side of the fence – from bitterness to acknowledgement.

  2. Just read the ’89 article and your right it was worth the read. I wasnt even alive at the time, but after reading that i wish i was.

    After reading that, i might go out and buy the book.
