Heard today we might be interested in Mata . any truth Ed?

Banbury Gooner

{Ed002's Note - Not sure - he is out of contract in the summer and will have a choice - but he will be looking to play.}

1.) 12 Nov 2018 20:50:53
Cheers ED.

2.) 15 Nov 2018 03:47:23
I wouldn't mind. I like Mata, he's the one that got away for me when he moved to Chelsea. Top player, top bloke.



17 May 2018 20:42:56
Usmanov to Everton. any truth?

Banbury Gooner

{Ed025's Note - there was a story in the dutch press today bambam but how true it is im not sure mate...but im all for it.. :)

1.) 17 May 2018 20:57:40
Lol I bet you are


I’m not.

{Ed025's Note - i want david dein as well mate...but you can keep kronke.. :)

Lot of chat about Arteta . not for me, far too soon in his coaching career.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 24 Apr 2018 10:52:48
It would be an extremely long shot giving him the job much like Cech trying to score past De Gea from a dead ball situation from his own goal line at 10pm in mid December with no floodlights, a totally unnecessary punt in the dark.

2.) 24 Apr 2018 15:33:38
It really would be very risky giving Arteta the top job. I think for this change to pay off and get the fans back onside they need to go after somebody with more stature and experience. I keep saying for me the logical choice on purely footballing reasons would be Conte but I’m not sure he would fit into the culture of our club.

3.) 24 Apr 2018 16:02:43
I like Conte Gary and wouldn't be unhappy with him at all but he does give the impression of getting fed up quickly if he doesn't get all his own way.
He would certainly find confrontation from some of our players on the training field in the early days
Conte " right Boys I want 8 laps of the pitch from you as part of your fitness assessment "
Arsenal players " which day we got to run 2 laps then boss " :-)

4.) 24 Apr 2018 19:09:28
Arteta is big NO!



04 Mar 2018 19:07:18
Any truth that we are looking at off loading Ramsey?

Thoughts on Low and Ancelotti?

Banbury Gooner

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

1.) 04 Mar 2018 20:37:33
Ed, What is the main reason why they’ll looking to offload him? . I think he’s one of our better players in this current squad. Surely Xhaka goes first!

{Ed002's Note - He is running down his contract.}

2.) 05 Mar 2018 11:14:09
Interesting. Cheers for the clear up.



14 Jan 2018 11:52:34
Sanchez left at home a sale must be imminent.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 14 Jan 2018 15:29:37
him and ozil are gone mate ozil to juv.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 16:50:33
Sanchez is as good as gone, we can only hope Liverpool maybe even Chelsea join the race that way we can eak out as much cash as we can for the transfer fee. This needs to be resolved asap as it will only effect the team morale even more than it is already.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 17:37:47
Does more clubs entering the bidding mean we can eke out more money? If he wants to go to city he can just refuse to sign for anyone else and hang around til the summer.

{Ed002's Note - Which "more clubs" are these? The wages are enough to stop most sides being interested.}

4.) 15 Jan 2018 12:39:20
ozil ain't going Juve, heard of dybala?

VAR is quite bizarre, how can a goal be disallowed for accidentally hitting a forwards arm in the build up to a goal but a penalty can’t be awarded if it accidentally hits a defenders arm

Pure madness.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 18 Aug 2019 00:32:25
It's nuts mate, it's like prosecuting someone for shoplifting because a jellytot from the pickenmix got stuck to the bottom of their shoe without their knowledge.
They've got it badly wrong and it's when not if they admit it and sort it out, and of course how much damage is done and credibility lost in between.

2.) 18 Aug 2019 07:30:45
VAR is an aid to enforce the rule. The discussion has to be about whether an unintentional handball by the team attacking in the build up to a goal should be deemed an offence. According to the current rule, Man City's 3rd goal was correctly ruled out for handball under the current rules.



23 Jun 2019 20:41:00
Torreira off then?

We must be barking mad if we let him go.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 23 Jun 2019 21:18:57
According to who mate?
I did a quick check on the net and only thing i can fibd is from two tabloids who have both proven themselves time time again to be absolutely anything but truthful or reliable on anything at all let alone football.
I hope your basing your despondent post on more than those two sources Banbury mate as they both make sky look reliable in comparison to themselves.

{Ed047's Note - You mean you don’t trust the Metro and the current bun gunner62. Lol

2.) 23 Jun 2019 21:50:43
Sorry Ed047 mate call me cynical but 72 million false stories from the Metro have made me somewhat doubt they're integrity :-) as for that other thing, if I'm in a takeaway waiting for my food I choose to read the menu over and over than look at that, in fact I genuinely would rather watch paint dry that look at it.

{Ed047's Note - I’m with you on that one mate, odious rag of a paper.

3.) 23 Jun 2019 22:08:59
It's history is nothing short of vile in my opinion mate, I just wish the great British public would put it out of business once and for all.

{Ed047's Note - it’s circulation has halved since 2010 so it’s getting there.

4.) 23 Jun 2019 22:25:51
The sooner the better for everyone Ed047 mate, anyone who believes anything it says about anything is either extremely gullible or just reading what they want to see because they are feeling negative themselves in some way shape or form.

5.) 24 Jun 2019 02:07:34
Non-Brit here so limited exposure but all the tabloids look the same to me. Wouldn't trust the Metro, the Daily Mail, etc. as far as I could spit.

6.) 24 Jun 2019 07:41:36
Totally agree Wire, our club isn't in the best possible shape right now but it's ridiculous to base our despondency on what any of the scandlesheets try to spread, that's just looking for problems in my opinion, surely there are enough reasons to be concerned without looking for more from those who just want to fuel and feed off people's unhappiness.

7.) 25 Jun 2019 01:49:32
I often see them giving away heaps of that unmentionable rag for free in airports. I like to throw them all in the recycling bin. :)



12 Jun 2019 22:03:40
I see Torriera has said it’s better in Italy, that’s not looking to good.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 12 Jun 2019 22:51:13
What was he was talking about the weather, the food, the skiing or the lifestyle :-)

2.) 13 Jun 2019 13:14:48
Funny how the media picked that line up. Also said how he has years to adapt. He's not going anywhere.

3.) 13 Jun 2019 13:36:53
He says he misses the sun. Luckily its next due to make an appearance during an afternoon in early September, so all he needs to ensure is he has his camera with him and just take a picture of it. After that, rather than waiting for its next appearance in March 2020, he just needs to look at his picture. Job done.

Just done the stay or go poll on sky sports some odd voting on there, I suspect Raver has messed about.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 31 May 2019 01:13:21
I voted for nearly everyone to go. If I’m honest I did put Iwobi to stay.

2.) 31 May 2019 09:40:17
Shows how poor we were when Iwobi was our man of the match, as a substitute. shortly followed by Jenkinson as he didn't play!

3.) 31 May 2019 15:12:18
The ones that have to be moved on are clear:


Should be moved on:

Already going:
Ramsey, Lichtsteiner, Suarez and Welbeck

The problem is that amounts to 12 players that have to be replaced on a limited budget, so Emery will need a couple more seasons to undertake the necessary surgery to the squad.

4.) 31 May 2019 19:23:52
Why wasn’t Emery on that poll.



29 May 2019 22:06:30
No surprise IMO, a win would have papered over the cracks, our defending is shocking

Looking at the bench it’s apparent we have zero depth in the squad

We got what I expected.

Don’t start me on Xhaka I said the day he arrived he is a liability, we are in a real mess.

Denis Suarez? Is he as close to signing as the media suggest.

Just looked 62, yes he seemed to miss a lot of matches but with stupid excuses which eventually will run out, I just can’t see a fit Ozil constantly sat on the bench.

Malaga it’s ok saying he’s had a season to see who he wants to keep but the truth is we couldn’t get anyone interested in some of our lot due to the fact they were paid too much for the little talent they have.

I think Dick can only be judged from now, he’s had a window just for him . Last season was a free hit.
