Banter Era best XI


#21

I’d have a go at this, but I’m never sure when this ‘Banter era’ began

Can we go back to 10/11 season, or is it just the last 3 or 4 years of Big Weng


#22

I’d say the banter era started in 2006 haha


#23

The criteria remain somewhat unclear :sunglasses:

I’d say people like Jenkinson, Frimpong, Kallstrom and Mustafi could all be in there for different reasons.

I maintain that Mustafi is one of the worst defensive signings we’ve made in a generation, given his cost and the misery inflicted upon us in his 100 odd appearances

Crap players like Sanogo and Park Chu Young get a bit of a break from me because they hardly turned out for us.


#24

Almunia

Jenkinson, Sylvestre, Squillaci, Traore

Eboue, Denilson, Flamini (second stint), Santos

Bendtner, Sanogo


#25

I’m classifying degrees of banter as how many times I laughed at said player:

            Almunia
 Gabriel Squillaci Mustafi Santos
 Eboue Frimpong Denilson Gervinho
        Sanogo Bendtner

#26

I can remember Gabriel getting the build up that the Greek is getting now. Thats not were the similarities are going to end either imo.


#27

8-2, genuinely one of the worst performances from a footballer I’ve ever seen.


#28

And a manager. (wooden spoon emoji)


#29

Emery


#30
            Almunia
 Djourou Silvestre Gallas Clichy
 Theo Diaby Denilson Gervinho
         Bendtner Welbeck

#31

He wont top an 8 2 mate.


#32


#33

If he was here 20+ years he probably would. Whatever can happen will happen.


#34

Looking at the banter XI it just goes to show how clueless Wenger was !
Georgie Graham built THE Arsenal foundations that the Emirates is built on !


#35

There’s a house up the road from me. Layed the foundations for an extension 3 years ago. Done nothing since. Foundations are vital but in and of themselves they aren’t worth a thing.


#36

There’s a mansion down the road from us ,
It’s foundations are solid , disciplined and carry the weight of the mansion .
Without that foundation , foreman Adams wouldn’t have grown , THE same Adams who finished off Everton at Highbury.
:wink: :wink:


#37

Tbh I could find a sub spot in most of them selections for Jimmy Carter.


#38

I’m sure in Graham’s 9 years you could also find 11 players that were shit.


#39

Jimmy ‘the jinx’ carter . There’s a name that conjures up nightmares!


#40

5-1 is a worse ratio than 8-2 tbf
