He’s also a 100% not a granny fucker

To one mr. wayne wooney, everyday is a bad hair day.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

But he parties with the women of “Gran Hermano”, one of whom is called “Floppy” (though in the photos she didn’t look too floppy to me)

Have a read at this and honestly its makes a lot of sence and brings everything back to earth!!!

Hey grannies need love too. Not from that pasty, six-fingered shitbag Rooney, mind.

Oh you

He’s also not TGSTEL.

Isn’t there some God particle named after him too?

Loving the star wars reference

Gunnersaurus Rex

His name is not robin van cuntie

I don’t know what I was expecting.

Help us Higuain Kenobi, you’re our only hope

fredflintstein

don’t think anyone’s gonna come up with a better one than that.

This is the stiker you are looking for.

Boblex

Interesting that is!

Gon Zalo shot first! Gon Zalo shot first!!!

Lec

Tbh I don’t need infograph to tell me whether i’d prefer higuain to rooney. Even if im just woken up, middle of night, knows nothing about football then rooney and higuain be paraded infront of me in which case I have to choose who will be in my team. we all know who i’d pick, the one with athlete-like qualities obviously, hair is a plus too….

Yvan C

Unyoke the ox

Has his own hair

Ba Ba

OK so he’s no Giroud (who is?), but you wouldn’t exactly say no to him.

Nathan

Btw, am hearing news that he has arrived at London airport this morning, http://www.soccersouls.com/2013/06/picture-higuain-in-london-to-complete-arsenal-move/ is this true ? Pl let it be 🙁

Cyril Washbrook

Oh, for goodness sake.

frrrred

I don’t think this inforgraphic is fair, one is obviously a human being the other has shrek-like qualities. I can’t quite make him out….

Kenyangoon

When did arsenal become a modelling agency? Signing all these top male models…whats next? Givenchy our next kit sponsor?

Arshavin's Dietician

Bring back the days of Merson, Morrow, Pates, Jensen. Some real lookers.

If Givenchy offer the dosh I’d say we should take it. They have a good name and a nice line of products. Class sponsor for a class club.

mik

f*ucking sh*t, he’s wearing a Chelsea shirt on the pic!
thank you, Wenger, for once again missing out!!!!!11

eleanor

Dear Mik …

The asterisk in “f*ucking” kind-of misses the point of one of the time-honoured uses of asterisks.

And the shirt thing you mention … requires a significant and speedy re-evaluation for your credibility’s sake. (What’s left of it.)

mik

about the asterisk, just a typo as you see i’ve used it correctly in the word “sh*t”. sorry.

as for the rest: what?

Merlin's Panini

I think he was joking Eleanor.

eleanor

So was I.

Merlin's Panini

are you sure?

eleanor

As much as I can be.

Merlin's Panini

I think you might need a lie down 🙂

eleanor

Consider it done.

Wenger's Waterbottle

That would make a quite excellent song title: “I think he was joking Eleanor”.

fredflintstein

Eleanor, I think you deserve an award for the most comprehensive comments on this article which collectively make a small essay. And of course we would all like to thank you for pointing out Mik’s grammatical errors. (Can I use “And” at the start of a sentence like that? It feels right but maybe it isn’t.) Wasn’t Arseblog looking for an editorial assistant a few weeks ago?

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

No, you bloody well cannot start a sentence with “And”.
And another thing…..

Double Canister

?

Naija Gunner

Let’s just hope for the better. I really want him here with his scoring booths though!

TeeCee

“…scoring booths…”

Should that be a reply to the scoring in nightclubs comment above?

Hulk

That is the worlds best infographic, they actually must have been invented just for this purpose.

cisco

Because, with his arrival, robin van persie will like the direction that this club is going even less next season.

Why tungsten?

eleanor

Tungsten … sometimes called Wolfram (which I like much better) is hard … very hard … extremely hard.

It has an astonishingly high melting point … (3,422 centigrade).

And it’s the heaviest element found in living organisms.

It’s the stuff super heroes are made of.

Boblex

i thought that what adamantium ? wolverine where are you!

Al2.0

F**k Wolverine.. Deapool is the shizznit!!

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

Tungsten has much in common with Rooney.

It is very dense.

In one crucial way it differs greatly from Rooney.

It has a very high melting point, whereas he boils over every time a ref’s decision goes against him.

cisco

hang on, tungsten is a pure element? I thought you were messing with me.
This is very interesting.

Glasgow Gunner

Where is mourinho in all this? A little odd he has not expressed an interest. Here’s hoping juve bugger off

eleanor

Out of what’s out there maybe Higuain’s the best bet.

He doesn’t come with the toxic baggage of a Suarez, Rooney, Ronaldo, or Tevez. Nor with their ridiculous price tags and egos.
He’s accessible unlike Falcao or Neymar.
He’s not going to be a Premier League flop like Cavani and/or Jovetic.
He’s going to score oodles more goals than Carroll, Villa, and Torres (Tahiti excepted.)
He’s not going to Bayern next year like Lewandowski.
He’s not a categorical has-been like Gomez, Dzeko, or Llorente.
He’s not an over-priced one-season-wonder(?) half-wit like Bale.
He doesn’t have a stupid name like Hulk, Fred, Jo (or Bale).
He’s not a fingers-crossed-what-the-hell-he’s-on-a-virtual-freebie like (insert name here).

So, why the snot not.

NB. Please discard if the deal falls flat on its face (Dick’s Law) and we actually get any of the above.

Mongolian Gooner

He’s not going to be a Premier League flop like Cavani and/or Jovetic.

now now, we don’t know about that yet do we?

rossi88

Bit nutty to assume Cavani and Jovetic will be flops. I would like Jovetic Or Higuian.

eleanor

Since neither Cavani nor Jovetic are coming our way then perhaps it’s a bit of wishful thinking. But whenever I’ve seen Cavani play for Napoli this season he’s not been that impressive either against AC Milan or Juventus – really the only other two teams in Serie A. He does work hard, I’ll give him that. He also scores goals, but much of that has to do with his supporting midfield – particularly Marek Hamsik who’s been outstanding (and to a lesser degree Pandev). If he does go to City or Chelsea then it’ll be interesting to see just how he fares.

Something of the same goes for Jovetic, though he’s significantly less prolific a goal-scorer. I think one of the reasons we were so strongly linked with Jovetic was his versatility. He’s someone who could easily support Giroud.

The thing is few players who’ve done well in Italy do really well in the Premier League. In fact you could say the opposite is true. I’d rather get someone who’s done well in Spain or Germany right now, not Italy. Besides, Serie A has an over-inflated view of itself. It’s nowhere nearly as strong or as physical as the PL.

Would I have liked Cavani – absolutely. But his acquisition would have blown our transfer budget to the tune of £40 to £50M. And that wouldn’t have been too prudent given some of the other holes we have to fill.

Without 20/20 hindsight I’d rather we had Huguain over Cavani or Jovetic. And if either those other two do end up here then I’ll be wishing them all the ill in the world. Which was my point.

David

agreed with almost everything – except I believe Rooney to be a mighty good player(agree that he would be expensive)
I think we need 4 players to be title contenders;I would go for Higuain,Rooney/Fellani,Williams and M”Villa

B'shop

M’Villa? what does he do again?

pak gooner

Ah. Lovely!

Madin

Love the pie chart!

The window licking is a bit harsh on poor old Poldi though.

davidnz

Higuain reminds me a lot of Ricardo Villa the way he plays.

DoubleDoubleDouble

Wash your mouth out.

Boblex

with acid!

Jagger

Harsh on Podolski’s efficiency. should be around same with Higuain. Also, what is window licking?

podgygooner

‘window licking’, please?

Merlin's Panini

It’s kind of an offensive term which means he looks like a mentally disabled person, the sort that would lick the window of the coach/bus on a day trip.

garyfootscrayaustralia
garyfootscrayaustralia

Gutted. Here’s me thinking Podolski was into Aphex Twin.

Merlin's Panini

I really hope this transfer happens. Higuain is a fantastic player who scores fantastic goals. He will also be the first Argentine we’ve had since the legendary(!) Nelson Vivas.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

Nelson Vivas. First appearance for Arsenal. Comes on as a sub and within 60 seconds had executed a bloody awful nasty foul (He ‘was’ that sort of a player). I remember screaming at the telly, yelling at Arsene Wenger to “substitute the fucker” and “sell the dirty bastard. We don’t need shit like that coming from Arsenal players.”

garyfootscrayaustralia
garyfootscrayaustralia

I remember Vivas for losing sight of Hasselbaink at the far post.
Pricks, both of them.

2013-2014 = 2003-2004!!!
2013-2014 = 2003-2004!!!

Technically speaking, Park Chu Young only scored one solitary Carling Cup goal for Arsenal. Therefore his “weeks gone by between goals” should be infinity.

Also, it’s sad to see Poldi rate so low in the ‘handsomeness’ category with what looks like only 2% of the vote. If Poldi were in competition with Didier Drogba and Wayne Rooney (instead of Olivier Giroud and Gonzalo Higuain), surely he’d garner 98% of the vote!

Arsenal4Life

Podolski’s handsomeness is seriously out of place. I mean he isn’t Giroud’s level, but nor is he a Gervinho to get such a rating….
http://www.kickette.com/files/2011/01/Lukas-Poldi-in-his-skivvies-2.jpg

Alex Partridge

Podolski is a German, therefore his efficiency is a minimum of 99%.

jessop

Park<Chamakh<<< a twig <<<<<<<<Rooney<<<<<<Higuain

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

A twig has never scored for Arsenal in the League Cup. Park is better than a twig you cheeky Jessop you.

I know there is a beach ball with a better record than him in English football, but a twig? No.

Glasgow Gunner

The point about mourinho, was that of surprise considering he managed the player that is now looking for a new challenge yet the idea of higuain following him to Chelsea hasn’t been mentioned.

Bromley goober

This has got to be the most amusing thread I’ve ever read, the thought we might sign a genuine star and really contend next year has brought the best out in all you funny f*uckers 😉 up the Arse and thanks blogs for years of just being… Well, you!

jason

I still think we need to sort out the defense tbh im realisitc.

We only had such a good defensive record cause after the Spuds defeat we sharted playing very defensive and didnt attack like we did the start of the season.

The question is next season we will go back to our routes imo with more attacking players added to the squad tho it will be the same story a high line with Mertesacker not very deep with lack of pace.

Our old defense used to go into the game knowing at the very least we would get a draw.

And we need a new goal keeper thats for sure Wojciech Szczęsny is absolutely useless we needs swansea’s goal keeper.

Dick Swiveller

Whilst we were more careful at the back for sure, I feel it was a lack of attacking options that really did for our goalscoring, we were hardly banging them in before that run either.

Also coincided with Rambo coming back into the team, so indirectly I agree, we need another ‘defensively sound’ midfielder to help shore things up back there but that’s all is needed back there imo and it’s the forward line that needs some care and attention.

jason

Yeah perhaps your right tho im not getting my hopes up yet considering not to long ago we was talking about how Arsenal dont practice defending in training, its important that we make sure we keep defending this way.

Yeh Gary Neville analysed our attack and said we need a striker than will run into the space and score thats what we are lacking up front.

jason
George

This is why Arseblog is the best.

Dial square

Why would Chelski need Higuain when they have got top international goal scoring hit man Torres??

mark

I’d say the window licking part is probably accurate. Once overheard two Germans debating who was thicker – Poldi or Schweini. I know who I’d rather have round for dinner though.

garyfootscrayaustralia
garyfootscrayaustralia

Silvia Meichel? She’d be my choice of German around for dinner.

omosh wenger

higuain,fellaini and williams will be perfect

Great comment thread here, from actual Real supporters who have seen Pipita play…

jason

I hope their right he should score a lot fo goals considering the number of goals we create all we need is a striker to put them away.

Consider we have challenged with RVP out for a season with Bendtner carrying our attack with Cesc keeping our seasons going with injury problems of his own.

With Santi instead of Cesc and Higuain instead of RVP if they both stay fit hopefully it will be a high scoring season for us.

Hoping Wilshere and Ox will stay fit and improve and Walcott looks a better player we should be a lot stronger next season as long as our defense stays solid.

Madin

Santi will be tired at the beginning of next season as he’s played every game and had to deal with the confederations cup fuckery.

Need someone to share his load. Has to be Tomas early on. Wilshere may not be completely match fit after his op and rehab. Unless dm comes in and Arteta moves up to cover.

Also Arteta for captain.

MustardSoup

So I had this weird dream where RVP gets kidnapped and gets strapped to a chair in a dingy square room with a hole in front of him. Then I saw a small telly in top corner of the room turn on, and fucking Mertesacker wearing a Jigsaw mask comes on starts asking why RVP left Arsenal. And each time RVP would try to answer his question Podolski would strike a ball straight at RVPs face through the hole in the wall.. Weird fucking dream. Do I have problems?

cisco

No more problems than the fella commenting under me, for starters.

Sex Fabergé

An anagram of Gonzalo Higuaín is:

hi gonzo anal guí.

Almost works…

Sex Fabergé

An anagram of Gonzalo Higuain, Arsenal is:

I, gonzo anal nailer, shag u.

It’s fate, written in the stars…

Double Canister

No shit ‘trademark’ goal celebration.
That’s a major plus.

Brilliant move by Arsenal, give Madrid cold hard cash.
Then with the folks run up to shite hart lane with the pounds burning a hole in their wallet and ask to buy Chimpface.

Double win for Arsenal.

Love hearts everyone.
