This is going to be a fun 5 days. Too bad RvP is injured for the Manchester derby. Couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke.

Just when he was finally rediscovering some form and some energy, too. Crap.

I think Wenger finally breaks his duck against Mourinho today.
 
2014-03-22 08:21:32 AM
I hope so. God, it would be so sweet

Greetings from the Blind Pig in NYC, gentlemen.

I honestly forgot Jovetic is with Citeh now. Can you blame me? I don't think he's even played this season.

Unfreakable: Greetings from the Blind Pig in NYC, gentlemen.


Nice.

The unofficial League Two team of fark.com, the MIGHTY Oxford United played yesterday, beating Hartlepool 1-0 to move to 6th place in the table.

The MIGHTY ones play again on Monday, and perhaps more significantly are expected to announce who their new manager will be over this weekend.

I'm only here for the first half, but I'll take it

That's the van Persie that Arsenal fans knew the best.
 
2014-03-22 08:44:04 AM
Kallstrom, Arsenal's own Carl Pavano, is on the bench.
 
2014-03-22 08:44:44 AM
Wasn't Mourinho suspended for this match?
 
2014-03-22 08:46:16 AM
LET'S DO THIS, BOYS
 
2014-03-22 08:47:46 AM
I insured a Chelski 1-0 win. Please prove me wrong Wenger.
 
2014-03-22 08:49:48 AM
Dammit.
 
2014-03-22 08:49:52 AM
My wish list for the remaining trophies:

EPL -- Arsenal
FA Cup -- Anybody but Arsenal
Champions League -- Man Utd, consequently bumping the 4th place team from the CL for next year.

The bumped team could be any of Man City, Chelsea or Liverpool and I'd be happy. But the meltdown from Mourinho if it were Chelsea would be one for the ages.

BTW, the Europa League spot could be even more of a poisoned chalice than usual, involving qualifying rounds in Outer Buttfarkistan. With Man City winning the Least Cup and the possibility of Arsenal winning the FA Cup, the qualifying rules get insanely baroque.
 
2014-03-22 08:51:33 AM
Not the most auspicious of starts for Arsenal.
 
2014-03-22 08:51:42 AM
Arsenal have played the first five minutes as though they wanted to concede a bad goal through a defensive mistake. So I hope they're happy now.
 
2014-03-22 08:52:18 AM
FFFFFFAAAAAAAARRRRRRKKKKK
 
2014-03-22 08:52:25 AM
This could be a loooooooooooong morning.

After a week off for conniptions - Sunday night found me at Newcastle Central Station with a bag containing a great deal of expensive jewellery, numerous eau de parfum, a 1960s Rolex Datejust, a USMC kabar combat knife and trousers smelling slightly of my dead Uncle's bodily fluids - FFPL reporting is back!

It is a crowded place in the Top-Scorers lounge this week. Mr_H I'm awarding first place on a tie-breaker, he having accrued his 95 in a far more honest and convincing way than myself. The bronze is shared out between [deep breath] nathanjr, wynswrld, Sachbash, mitchcumstein1 and kevinatilusa on 90's via mixed methodologies.

At the other end, krej55 and themanofpa and HaywoodJablonski all handed back 40. Standunder performance of the round however goes to dietbubba, hurling 55 into the void.

Top three remains unchanged. I slightly increase my narrow lead. At the bottom Cognitive_Displaysia is up off the basement thanks to an injection of adrenalin.

Only minor ups and downs this week. Sachbash retains the BB Presidency, but is in severe danger of being deposed by a couple of players on +15s. He's joined on +20's by Stimied and StRalphtheLiar. Juicepats takes on the Mediancrown.

After a long climb up the charts, FFPL as a league went down 6 slots in the league-of-leagues to 142nd place.

Double bubble this week with 20 matches!

If Unfreakable takes a drink every time the commentator says "Arsenal caught in possession" or "gave the ball away cheaply" he'll be smashed by half time.
 
2014-03-22 08:55:14 AM
Eto'o's out due to injury. Mourinho instantly decides to park by bringing Torres.
 
2014-03-22 08:55:57 AM
Stop giving the ball away....
 
2014-03-22 08:57:42 AM
Arsenal's playing like Schalke. You never go Schalke.
 
2014-03-22 09:00:13 AM
And now a handball penalty. Arsenal are now playing like Man Utd vs. Liverpool.
 
2014-03-22 09:00:48 AM
And a red too for The Ox.
 
2014-03-22 09:01:02 AM
What a save!

Oh, not the keeper!

Oops.
 
2014-03-22 09:01:41 AM
Gibbs is leaving? He's the one who got sent off? Even Ian Darke is perplexed.
 
2014-03-22 09:02:23 AM
Gibbs off instead. And 3-0. Fark me.
 
2014-03-22 09:02:34 AM
3-0.  Langstoncurrently chugging every alcoholic beverage within reach.
 
2014-03-22 09:02:44 AM
Welp over.
 
2014-03-22 09:03:03 AM
'What shall we give the Gaffer for his 1000th game in charge'

'How about a SNAFU in a creamy FUBAR sauce?'
 
2014-03-22 09:03:05 AM
The mood at the Blind Pig is very black
 
2014-03-22 09:03:19 AM
What are these NFL referees? Wrong dude!
 
2014-03-22 09:03:20 AM
Oh. It's Andre Marriner. It makes perfect sense that he would flub a card.
 
2014-03-22 09:04:57 AM
Will this FINALLY get Marriner fired? He keeps making mistakes. You expect disaster when he's reffing.
 
2014-03-22 09:06:09 AM
Seeing as Jose hates Wenger enough not to park the bus, what's Chelsea's record win against Arsenal?
 
2014-03-22 09:06:37 AM
Shouldn't be a red anyway, because it wasn't going in. Nice job ref.
 
2014-03-22 09:06:57 AM
4-3 Arsenal by the end, and Wenger French kisses the Special One.
 
2014-03-22 09:07:21 AM

Princip's Sandwich: 3-0.  Langstoncurrently chugging every alcoholic beverage within reach.


And strongly considering switching to bleach
 
2014-03-22 09:09:15 AM
'All these mixed-race players look the same to me' A. Marriner.

Possibly, just possibly he hasn't heard the last about that incident.

I may not even make it that long

You had away with the trousers off the body?
 
2014-03-22 09:17:22 AM
Wenger considering asking for the phone number of Moyes' psychiatrist.
 
2014-03-22 09:17:44 AM
Torres to get the fourth. Most of his goals lately seem to be a meaningless late one in a game that's already won.
 
2014-03-22 09:18:51 AM
Ivanovich, you cheaty bastard
 
2014-03-22 09:19:32 AM

Whoa, didn't hear about that.

/FFPL double week...wonder how many points I can give back this time
 
2014-03-22 09:26:58 AM
Ian Darke spotlighting the FFPL.

Oscar makes it 4-0. Keep the bleach off  Langston's hands.
 
2014-03-22 09:27:40 AM
Bleach it is. F*ck
