Too slow Arsene – Ribery to Bayern

2 posts in a day!

In an update to my previous post, I now know that Poom has gone to Watford, hence the new signing: 1 in 1

The other more dissapointing news is that Bayern, bouyed by the funds of the sale of Hargreaves have snapped the 24 year old winger out.from under our noses. Perhaps its for the best, he was clearly just motivated by cash!! joining the Krauts, oh well. I’m sure this isn’t the last of the dissapointments of the summer.

  1. Who says he’s gone to bayern? As far as I can tell its a rumour.

    If he has, so what? he aint what we need. Overrated to fuck.

  2. Well why would he go to Bayern, they aint even qualified for the champions league (theyre just a german tottenham)!!!

  4. I highly doubt he has gone or is going to Bayern. As Pete says, they have not even got Champs League football. Pretty much the main thing he wants next season.

  5. No announcement on the Bayern website yet. Although the have signed Marcel Jansen a left sided midfielder.

  6. Wenger has had chances in the past to buy Ribery, but passed them up. I think he will again. Rib is overrated, and isn’t the goalscoring option we need.

  7. Why guys you are so jealous?!? Next season Bayern is come just something magnifisent!! Toni, Ribery and Klose maybe… And many more good players. You are going to see new Bayern empire!! Be happy you see that 😉

  8. The main priority this summer needs to be selling Hleb.

    He is the worst player in Arsenal’s history.

    Even if no other transaction is completed this summer, he must be sold. He is a bad influence.

    Hleb is shit.

  10. Hleb is very good and potential player. Hleb doesn´t have change to show Arsene Wenger how good player he is!! He needs more time to play. I think Bayern have to bought him too… 😉

  11. Hleb will get another chance next year. If he doesn’t settle in then, he’ll be off. But he won’t be going anywhere this year.

  12. listen dick for brains FOFF/HLEB you know absolutely nothing about Hleb otherwise you would realise that most foreign players take time to settle in .For the price we paid it was a snip ,granted he isnt the most prolific goal scorer ,then again nor are some of the best although considering Freddie is getting on a bit now he will turn out to be the perfect replacement .Put your Spurs shirt back on and shut up

  14. Bayern /Ribery its got to be rumour .Why on earth would he go to a side that have no Champions league football next season .For a person who is as greedy as him it would be a must for his thousands of euros a week.If we signed him he will turn out to be another whinger like Reyes we dont need another like that.He is without question a very good player but when we have the likes of Lungberg ,Walcott,Hleb and Rosicky all more than able to put the work in that he would do why waste 15.000.000 pound.Walcott will come good just like Ronaldo did this season then we will all be saying Ribery who?

  16. If he was going he would have gone last season.He knows he is playing in one of the brightest young squads that football has ever seen and despite this seasons slump we will bounce back like we always have done ,just next time well be lifting the European cup!

  17. Walcott… Hmmm WHO??

    Comment by BayernJ | May 26, 2007 | Reply

  18. Ribery expressed that he dreamed of playing in the premiership, why would he move to Bayern Munich if he had the chance to move to an English club for the same money

    BTW Spur r sh*t

  20. Helb is SHIT, time to settle, how much fucking time does he need. end of the day this guy will never reach the level required.

    Its not about wearing a spurs shirt like you said to the other guy. Its simply that helb is shit.

  21. Hleb is shit. If that is what Arsene spends money on then it’s better he sticks to the bargain basement. Time to settle? He’s had two years for God’s sake. He is a lazy pisstaker. Get shot of him, now.

  28. Ribery is fucking rubbish, and only an idiot would worry about the fact we haven’t signed him.

    Some dumb cunts read in the Mirror or some other rag that we are interested in someone, and automatically assume (a) that it’s true, and (b) that the player is good.

    In Ribery’s case it’s neither, and he’s completely overrated.

    We got out of jail on that one, much as we have with the so-called “Beast”.

  29. get a good defender – rigoberto song!! experience

    Get a good Striker — Dawid Janczyk!!! top player!

    go try to youtube the stiker!!! GOOD investement!! he’s only 19

    *forever blowing bubbles*

  30. Song? You’re mental pal.
    Reo Coker? I’d rather keep Diaby, Silva, and Cesc in the centre, and cokehead can’t play anywhere else.
    Dawid who? Villa maybe yes. But you don’t buy strikers because you see a nice goal on Youtube, do you?
    And when we have Henry, RvP, Big Ade and BendyToy, why the f*** do we need another reserve striker?

  31. I agree with the early posts helb is shit and ljunberg is past it so we need them out

    Comment by Sooner Ali | May 27, 2007 | Reply

  32. Goodness me you’re all very antagonistic and petty aren’t you. Hleb plays better football than you could ever fuckig hope to, and he ‘s such a grafter. If you look at work rate rather than just goals scored you’d see Hleb runs his arse off every single game he’s picked. Admittedly it’d b nice to have a winger who puts a few more away but Hleb is now far far superior to Freddie “fall over” Ljungberg. What we really need is a right sided Rosicky but I guess thats why we’re signing Malouda.

  33. Do you know, Hleb is so bad I think he probably is worse than me, and I only have one leg and wear size 56 inch waist trousers.

  36. Re Hleb. When was the last time he did something that stands out. when was the last time he put a great through ball in, he wipped in a cross, he scored a screamer, he scored, he set someone up, etc…. He has done nothing this year. He has twinkly toes and flatters to deceive, he has been very poor for us but yes we will see what happens next year. Another season like this and he has to go.

  37. Sorry – but Hleb is shit.

    I want to like him, but the guy is pathetic. Totally counter-productive to our our footballing flow. He is the main reason we’re shit I swear.

  38. I think it’s just a rumour that he’s gone to Bayern…

    Btw Hleb is not bad at all, he’s had a few excellent games for the gooners.

  41. The problem with Hleb is that he just gives the ball away time after time. His work rate is not a problem, just the accuracy of his passing and failure to find the net, which in a footballer is somewhat of an issue….. He probably does need to go – He’s had plenty of opportunity to prove himself and has shown that while he may be OK, he isn’t currently playing to the level that we need to see if we’re going to be challenging for titles again next season. Freddie needs to go too – Poor fella is past his best now. Such a shame as he was a fantastic player but these days he’s sucking tens of thousands a week out of the club and we’re getting nothing back. He’s lost that extra yard he used to be able to get on other players and it shows. Frankly, we could have done with keeping Bobby for another year – We miss his goals.

    Ribery hasn’t gone to Bayern from what I can gather – Not sure where you get your info but I think someone is pulling your plonker.

  45. First of all ribery is not overated heck he is underrated at best.I dont know what the true news is on him but we need that guy & ryan babel to stand a chance in epl & we need those players to keep henry at arsenal this guy is lacking inspiration.Heck im convinced if they come we will win epl or champions league.

    If we don’t get those 2 pieces we are automatically out of the title race & thierry will duck out & then the rest fab,gallas the team will turn to shit.Which looks more likely by the lack of buying new players.

    I don’t understand the fake bullshit that we don’t have money we have been in at least 3 cup competitions for 3 years & been in semi finals in at least 3 of them that money shit is just bullshit sick of arsene’s cheapness.
    And teh new premier ship money is like 60 mil what is the excuse for not spending money???

    Hleb is not on the level we need him to be at he was suppose to come & replace reyes/pires & face facts he aint on there level period he ain’t even a winger he keeps cutting in as if he was a center midfilder & has eboue do all the actual winger duties like supplying croses which wears eboue down & has him not do so well against counter attack teams since he is tired & runs back & forward alot.

    Hleb does’nt cut it he is ok as a sub but he ain’t that good & is not anywhere near ribery level or the level we need him to be at he dones’nt cut it.

    Ribery is a superior player to hleb in every way he is like pires & ray parlour in one player.Arsenal need tenacity back & heart to play.Arsenal players right now are too comfy & soft pretty footbal aint important winning is players like ribery don’t play that shit they play for wins.

    This money issue keeps popping up which further annoys me we should have sold reyes time ago ,seriously time ago
    whats taking so long we can get at least 8-10 mil from him easily the guy does’nt wanna play for arsenal & epl period. Sell him he ain’t coming back whats the f88king delay on someone that wants to waste their own talent if this was fergie reyes would have been out last season easily.

    Second sell ljungberg could collect at least 8-10 mill again.We don’t need him him anymore he had his time last 3 years man has not taken football serious with his modeling & side jobs.The left side is already overloaded as it is with rosisky who is in the wrong position & diaby who is also in the wrong position.

    Selling those 2 alone could fetch 16-20 mill this money could have been spent on ribery who we desperately need direct attacking a ”real winger” who will actually play on the wing not half assed like hleb & putting people in the wrong positions who actually lack pace to play on teh wing & who don’t use the whole pitch width.

    Arsene starting too piss me off as well he is driving players away due to his incompent managing we do not need any more youngsters that are work in progress we need youngsters that are at a high level(which walcott aint.
    We need at least 1 world class player that can play with henry & that person is clearly ribery 2 chances 2 buy a world class player does’nt happen but im sure arsen will f*8k up again.

    Another player who should be bought quickly is ryan babel he does’nt have much hype yet his buy out clause is like 6 mill we could nick him for 10 maybe lower if we get in there quick.If you guys see this guy play you will easily understand that he needs to come to arsenal bung him on the left or roight wing or even striker won’t matter can use both feet.He is another one of those new generation,wonder kid freaks like nani & adnerson & nasri,fernandes & the rest of em.

    Really starting to piss me off arsene how f88king dumb are you if you see talent swipe them before the guys with money come around whats so hard wtf are you doing eating cake.

    He is starting to annoy me we should buy those players quickly ribery & babel then arsenal will trully be back & will easily win a cup at least.

    At this rate going now if we do not buy those players henry is going this summer heck im actually convinced henry will leave this summer due to arsene idiotic decisions.For the last 2 years henry has stayed around expecting world class or good players to come in arsene has’nt delivered which has left henry to leave which will ultimately make arsenal once again a crap team.

    Seriously too much lack of ambition atm if thing keeps up we need to fire hios ass quickly before any more damaged gets done wanst henry leaves this team will completly crumble and it woudl be thanks to arsene’s crap decisions.

    Im out getting pissed right now.
