Quality from "ARSEBLOG"

The Association of Former Arsenal Players (A FAP) has this morning welcomed the clubâs recent turbulent form, saying it provides their members with an opportunity to sound insightful and intelligent whilst boosting their own media profiles.
Calling the current situation a âGodsendâ, the Honorary vice-chairman, Wilf Copping Jr III, spoke exclusively to Arseblog News.
âItâs fantasticâ, he told us from the associationâs HQ in the little known US state of âObviousâ. âFor years weâve struggled with Arsenal winning things but now it couldnât be more perfect.
âWe simply tell our members to have a look on Twitter or the Facebook and see what Arsenal fans are saying. Then, when asked about Arsenalâs situation, say exactly the same thing but add in a little anecdote which begins with the words âBack when I was playingâ.
âItâs a roaring success and to be honest we can barely keep up with demand. Itâs Talksport one minute, the soaraway Sun the next and before you can say Tomas Danilevicius weâve got the Milton Keynes Gazette wanting to speak to somebody about why Arsenal havenât won a trophy in fifty six years or whatever it is.â
Yet itâs not just Arsenal fans that are providing top quality material for the former players to use on their media travels. None other than Arsene Wenger is the source for much of it.
âSome call it it the anti-Wenger axiom, itâs codename REGNEW on our 64 page rules and regulations booklet, but itâs basically saying the opposite of what he says.
âFor example, Arsene will reference his teamâs mental strength. When they lose just go out there and say they donât have any. When he talks about the quality, ask where the quality is when they lose to the likes of Swansea.
âArsene is so considerate that way, weâll always be grateful to him.â
And Copping is hoping the good times keep on coming.
âIt might not be great for the Arsenal trophy cabinet but weâre not complaining. Simply being able to go out there and just say what any fan with half a brain already knows is just brilliant for us!
Quotes â what have the former players been saying:
âArsenal do not have mental strengthâ â Emmanuel Petit
âYou look long and hard at this team and you have to think they need to play with the handbrake a little more offâ - Kaba Diawara
âIf they could just not lack a little bit the sharpness then I think they could win things againâ â Nelson Vivas
âThis Arsenal team ainât got a clue âow to communicate. Itâs all split infinitives here and badly declined nouns there. Itâs âcos theyâre all foreign if you ask me.â â Paul Merson
