Good day to all you Gooners.
And here we have it, finally I have the Allgoonerdup All Time Eleven! Just to break up the tedium of The Emmanuel Adebayor and his Agents Show, The Alex Hleb Show – which seems to of been axed and also the Samir Nasri Show which hasn’t seem to of got off the ground at all, now indulge yourself in the Allgoonerdup All Time Eleven. So a big thanks goes out to all the people who sent their entries in, well done. Some of you Gooners may not agree with the line up, well shame on you for not sending in an entry, you could of had a say in the matter. A bit like all the people who couldn’t be bothered to vote in the London Mayoral race and then see that twat Boris Johnson win it, WTF?! Not mentioning any names that didn’t vote! Any road up, the players who made the team are all legends in my opinion and there cannot be any argument of them being in an All Time Eleven team in some capacity. Obviously some players will miss out, we’re lucky that we have such a rich history and have had the pleasure to of watched or even be watching some class acts. Well here’s how the team lines up after all the votes were casted, if you have something to say – jump on board the comments section and let us know your thoughts, agree? Disagree?
Doesn’t make a bad team does it? One thing I would say is that near enough every entry had David Seaman in goal, the position of keeper was probably the most straight forward! Other positions were very much up for debate including the left back spot which saw Gael Clichy come second to Nigel Winterburn. One point of interest was the amount of votes which went towards Bacari Sagna after only one season! He did manage to run Lee Dixon quite close. Other players to miss out with not a lot in it were the likes of David Rocastle (RIP), Marc Overmars, Manu Petit, Paul Davis, Martin Keown, Stevie Bould and former Arsenal top scorer and now BBC lovie Ian Wright, Wright, Wright, strangely though Emmanuel Eboué didn’t figure in any lists! As you can see from the final line up only ‘old skool’ player Liam ‘Chippy’ Brady makes the grade I think that reflects the readers rather than previous talent amongst The Arsenal ranks. Even Cesc Fabregas who’s only just turned 21 polled so many votes that he made the team ahead of the likes of George Graham, Manu Petit, Michael Thomas and Arsenal leg-end David Rocastle. Thanks again for all your entries, it was interesting to see just what you Gooners think of when thinking of the best players to don the red and white of London’s finest.
May 26 1989 anyone?
As there’s not a lot going on, why not catch up with some TV and watch the 1989 Division One title being won at Anfield again, and again, and again and and again. In fact send the link to any Liverpool friends you may have so that they can bask in it as well, would be rude not to.
Allgoonerdup goes FaceBook
It had to happen, Allgoonerdup has gone and got itself on FaceBook. So get yourself on there and link us up, tell you mates, your family, whoever, join the fun and socialise on the worlds number one social network. OK I’m not getting paid to say any of that but you know the coo.
To link us up just go to: http://www.facebook.com and in the search area type in either:
Tommi Gooner or Allgoonerdup and you’ll get to the right spot. The area is a bit sparse at the moment but the idea is get a load of Gooners on there and share in everything…. well Arsenal.
The Emmanuel Adebayor Show
There’s absolutely no new news on Adebayor who’s fixing to sort out his retirement at the ripe old age of 24. Barcelona were told that the asking price is the in the region of £35m and now the Catalan giants have supposedly offered a final, not going back, take it or leave it sum of £30m. Well it’s not £35m is it boys so I think we’ll leave it. Although does anyone really believe Emmanuel ‘One good season’ Adebayor is worth £30m+? It will be interesting to see just what Arsène Wenger will do. For once he isn’t bowing down to the big boys and has grown some cojones, some big golden cojones and isn’t shirking this one. If Wenger does manage to get £30m+ for Adebayor it would be like a mugging and would be up there when Wenger somehow managed to get Villerreal to pay, yes actually pay to take Pascal Cygan off our hands. All I hope is that if Adebayor, who’s been keeping his trap shut this week obviously trying to gage the heat in the situation is sold we actually have a ready made replacement bought, polished up and standing in their new red and white kit.
As it’s really quiet I shall be doing some ‘under the hood’ type shenanigans and will be adding to pages such as the ‘Hall of Fame’, ‘Hall of Shame’, ‘Player profiles’ and others. So remember to keep having a look at those and get in touch via the contact page if you want to have a say.
