Arsenal Announce Wenger Departure
View attachment 310695

Much to the delight of the Arsenal Fans, the club's chairman Peter Hill-Wood, has announced on the clubs website, the departure of Arsene Wenger. Hill-Wood stated that Wenger's departure was triggered by the fiery press conference in which Wenger threw what was believed to be an Apple iPhone at a journalist, after he asked Wenger how many trophies he would plan to lose in the up-coming season. 'Wenger did not take his actions into consideration and will pay the consequences' said the chairman today. The big question on everyone's lips today is who will be the new manager at the Emirates? Bookies have the favourite to be none other than Arsenal icon Thierry Henry, who would take the place as a player-manager, as he has not yet hung up his boots. There is also speculation it could be Jose Mourinho following his successful spell with Chelsea, but Arsenal's board are not letting any hints out yet, we'll just have to wait and see.
Peter Hill-Wood announced today the appointment of Lewis J Devlin as Arsenal's new manager. Devlin, the former Scotland International, Celtic, Everton & Arsenal player is venturing into the unknown with this shock decision, he only hung up his boots 3 months ago following a career halting injury in which he broke his leg in 2 places whilst playing for Arsenal in the last few months of the Barclays Premier League season. Devlin said on Twitter he was 'over the moon that the chairman trusted him with the job' a reaction which suggests to the media he didn't put himself forward for the job. Pundits have joked on SSN that Devlin 'was not suited for the job' and he 'would be out by christmas'. Arsenal fans have stood by their former captain, with the attitude 'surely he can't be worse than Wenger', again, we'll just have to wait and find out.
Mega Mix-Up At Hampden Park

so we all know the new Scotland manager is Gordon Strachan, yes? NO, SFA chiefs are tonight red-faced as they have made a major gaff in appointing their new manager Lewis Devlin, they supposedly got it wrong because Strachan was named as Devlin's assistant, not the Manager himself. Devlin was outraged as it was announced HE was the assistant by the SFA...So just to clear this mess up, the scotland manager is current Arsenal manager, Lewis Devlin not Gordon Strachan!

v Arsenal
(L) 6-0
yeah, i know "WHAT THE ****?", the players played ****, my tactics were ****, the game was ****, the ref was ****, his decisions were ****, the ballboys were ****, the half time pies were ****, AVB's tactics were...not ****, there was no vuvuzlea's so the atmosphere was ****, it was all just **** okay! so im kinda taking a positive spin on it by saying 'we were gonna take a big loss at some point, so best to get it over with' hopefully no more for a long time.

v Reading
(w) 4-0
Falcao (50), Gibbs (61), Lopez (70,79)
Much better performance lads, Falcao got involved, Lopez was on fire up front, Gibbs was bombing it down the wings, (played him LM) but he also got back to cover when Monreal got up and couldnt get back, all in all a good game, very impressed!

I was disappointed to be honest, of course i am, not the fact it's australia, just that we didnt even get a goal? i mean we have a decent strike force? hmmmm...i dunno.

James Forrest, he's getting the crosses in, just no contact from the strikers, but none the less its good to have a decent crosser.
Thanks for Reading guys, come back for September/October 2012, hope you enjoyed it, if so give me a like or rate, or leave a comment with your thoughts, or suggestions or anything, just tell me how i'm doing, it's much appreciated, thanks guys!

Looking forward to this series.. Maybe we could see your tactics for Scotland and Arsenal, with current starting 11.. And for the future, it would be cool to see youth intake and who you think could challenge for a first team spot eventually from your youth since this is a part of your contract, but I'm sure you were going to do this anyways ;)

Yeah, I plan on getting some of the u21's into the first team (scotland) this season, you know the likes of Gary Mackay-Steven, Jordan Rhodes, Johnny Russell etc. and I'll get the tactics, starting 11 (it's usually rotated due to the number of strikers) and both Scotland Youth and Arsenal Youth Teams out to you soon!
Thanks! Can't wait for this series to get going.

Stoke City FC v Arsenal FC
(L) 2-0
Right so here's how it goes: i tell the team, you have to win this one, and Falcao is like 'oh yeah, i can score all the goals' I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE **** HE WAS DOING ON THAT PITCH?! i don't know if he was texting his burd or what? i mean, maybe he had the PornHub app, but come on! at least save it for the showers...but yeah stoke played great, can't take that away from them. (F.Y.I - im not sure if theres a PornHub app, if there is get back to me ;))

Arsenal FC
v Norwich City FC
(w) 3-0
Falcao (28), Mertesacker (35), Wilshere (41)
Much better from the LADs, Falcao with a great solo effort (he then took his top off and asked me to take a pic of it so he can post it on twitter) then big bad per mertesacker! what even are you? guess how he scored? go on...guess! right fine, he scored a HALF VOLLEY FROM 18 YARDS!? PER MERTESACKER? and then jackie wilshere! oh! what a man! he ran into the box, 1 on 1, took it round the keeper, passed it into the net, and ran over to the fans! all in all a brilliant game!

Queens Park Rangers v Arsenal
(L) 4-2
Gibbs (23), Wilshere (80)
i know? what the ******* fuckity **** **** ******* ****? how the **** can that happpen? what the ****!

Arsenal v Manchester City
(w) 3-0
Falcao (37), Wilshere (38), Vermaelen (44), Vermaelen Sent Off (73)
Falcao, scoring as usual, wilshere brilliant, vermaelen, lucky he got his goal or i would have actually killed him. what a **** man, getting sent off against city? i mean come on! i dont get how we're losing to the wee teams and winning against the big teams? hmmm... i did change tactics for this game right enough, it seemed to work!

great game, falcao at his best, lopez even better than falcao! antonini...what a ****...but anyway it boots us up to first in the table, just behind us is Schalke with the same points and goal difference. i think Schalke are the main challengers to be honest, but i hope we can do it! oh yeah and antonini...what an absolute ****.

and i'll also be giving you a look at my squads and tactics, youth intake, and training.

How do you guys like the save so far?a bit of feedback/ constructive criticism would be good!
It's enjoyable, a fun read with a good spin on the match reports. Gives me some ideas to improve my Up The Posh thread too. Lose at QPR then smash Man City? Really???
I know lol, thanks for the feedback, I think it may have been because I changed tactics after the QPR game
