I know this week has taught us it ain't over until it's over but Valencia now need 4 in the last 30 minutes plus stoppage time, even we can't throw this away, can we :-)

Having seen the highlights I have to say it's the best game I've seen Xhaka have, had a huge say in both goals and no costly mistakes, very decent free kick but not a worldie as I thought the keeper should have done better in reality.
To me he still looks very awkward when he runs at more than a jog (which isn't often ) and his tackling is as crude as ever on the rare occasion it happens but still his best game in 2 years 5 games,
IS it enough to justify his inclusion? It's obviously a huge improvement on anything before but needs to happen more often than once every two seasons and 4 games for Arsenal to be top 4 contenders again.

Xhaka looks far better alongside Torreira, as he provides the platform for Xhaka to play as a deep, false number 10, where he provides a vital link between defence and attack with his quality passing. Alongside Guendouzi he tends to end up playing deeper as a DM, which doesn't suit his style of play. Guendouzi is a fine young player, but he reminds me so much of Elneny both physically and in the 'headless chicken' style of play.


2.) 16 Sep 2018 09:34:58
Vital? Really!
Vital means someone you can't do without and while it's obviously not all down to him alone but we haven't made top 4 since Xhaka arrived after 20 years of consecutive qualification before he arrived.
Sanchez was vital to us being our best during his time as was Kos until recently but calling Xhaka vital is an extreme exaggeration to say the least.
If he continues to play like yesterday he will become an asset but he's long way to go to become an asset let alone vital.


3.) 16 Sep 2018 13:53:17
Vital! Really, once in a blue moon isn't vital. We played Newcastle, didn't still look solid defensively in midfield and it wasnt even a top half prem team. Vital my hairy arm. The sooner he is ejected with a couple more, the sooner we might actually improve.


4.) 16 Sep 2018 15:37:15
This range of passing makes me laugh. He has one nice pass that’s the one over the top to the left winger, everyone has their opinion but for me he isn’t up to scratc for challenging for silverware.


5.) 16 Sep 2018 15:40:22
It's so obvious that the 'vital' refers to that role in this system! Discuss if you think this system is correct, the midfield balance needs adjusting, no problem. If we need a player to move the ball though periods of possession, then he is clearly the best option in the squad, and thus gets picked. Not the best player in the team or whatever, as its boringly obvious you two hate him. Otherwise we fill our team up with box to box players who do a bit of everything, I'm not clever enough to know if that's better, but I'll trust Emery on this. Maybe Xhaka flourishes as the season grows, maybe we use the transfer market to improve on him, maybe we change the system. Keep discussing football RG, I enjoy it, even if I rarely contribute!

{Ed025's Note - you should a bit more ned..


6.) 16 Sep 2018 16:31:51
I don't hate Xhaka Ned in fact I don't hate anyone at all, not rating someone or seeing them as an asset to the team is a long long way from hating them mate.


7.) 16 Sep 2018 17:00:41
Wow! Calm down ned. I for sure don’t hate him and I can speak for myself in saying that I wasn’t one of the ones who jumped on the xhaka kaka train from game 2. I simply don’t think he’s of the Caliber to have us challenging mate.


8.) 16 Sep 2018 18:01:34
I don't hate xhaka, i don't like him as a arsenal footballer (not anywhere near good enough) i want the best for arsenal. IF i think a player is letting us down and i 100% are not on my own hear, ask wright, merson, shearer, rednap, souness, nicolas, etc, then i have my opinion why. Since the guy has joined us, he has not cemented his place and made it his own on performance. I think 2 plus years of putting up with nothing performances is long enough. It is nothing personal, its something arsenal. I repeat, i know no top six team supporter who rates him at all, in fact they think he is one of the worsed midfielders in the prem and laugh about him.


9.) 16 Sep 2018 18:17:27
He’s certainly not one of the worse midfielders and I know you did t say that steve. But he is most certainly not trophy class imo.


10.) 16 Sep 2018 18:43:06
Agree sanos alter ego, Lol. Most of my mates who support other teams just don't rate him at all, they really think he's shat. I just don't think he's that good really, i want better than him in our team for us to progress. I am baffled why he seems somewhat bullet proof for us. I honestly think he is a fraud midfielder.


11.) 16 Sep 2018 18:46:54
And Sano, he is one player i cannot put up an argument for when they are lambasting him. I get picked on when i do, Lol.


12.) 17 Sep 2018 16:44:21
Why would I assume, or care, if you hate him as a person? You state in abundance you hate him in the team, I don't understand all the defencivness and confusion. I basically replied that you'd totally mis-represented the use of vital in RG's post, and I think you don't comment sensibly on why Xhaka continues to get in the team. I never stated that Xhaka is our star player, I don't think it's in dispute he's been underwhelming. I definitely think he can be better, but may also need replacing. Also that if we change the balance of the midfield with the players we have available, then we'll need to adapt in other areas of the pitch to be creative or control possession. I suspect our wide forwards are not suited to the task.


13.) 17 Sep 2018 18:40:32
Ned, i think i understand what vital means. Xhaka isn't vital.


14.) 18 Sep 2018 06:21:05
Xhaka, one of Emery's 5 captains and selected for all 5 PL matches to date.
I believe Xhaka was one of many players in the latter Wenger era that went backwards as a player after arriving at the club. He was played as a DM, not his position and looked poorer for it. Emery is a successful, intelligent and adaptable manager who will get the best out of Xhaka. In all the matches where Torreira and Xhaka played togther, the partnership has looked promising and I can see this pairing forming part of the spine of the team. They compliment each other, with the excellent Torreira providing shape to the team and giving Xhaka more freedom to move forward, between the defence and the attack.


15.) 18 Sep 2018 13:07:50
Well said gunner ned.


 

 

31 Jul 2018 09:26:39
Only tabloid gossip so nothing to serious but should it by any chance be true Aaron to Chelsea for 30 million?
I'd take it big time.

gunner62

1.) 31 Jul 2018 11:59:25
I wouldn't. He's an important goal contributor from midfield and competing with Xhaka for a place should bring out the best of both. For a player like Ramsey, who's been consistently one of the better midfielders in the league, and counts as homegrown, we should be demanding 50 minimum. It's bonkers, but so is everything else now.


2.) 31 Jul 2018 15:10:56
How can be one of the most consistent when he isn't consistently available wire mate
If he was that good why ain't we fighting the opposition off with a stick for his signature?


3.) 31 Jul 2018 19:15:05
Wire - with a year left on his contract we not going to get anywhere near 50Mill for Ramsey 30Mill tops and that might be pushing it tbh. Ramsey is a bit of a oddity in our side as he is actually one of the few offensively that are better without the ball than with the ball making some really good runs in the box he is kind of what Lampard used to be like in that sense. Yes he is a decent player but we have better in Ozil for his preferred position and he is replacable without doubt with equal or better with targets we could get. Maybe it is not down to money so much maybe he is not keen on the demands of Emery, and misses the protection of father figure Wenger and if that is the case good riddance we need all of them 100% on board and behind the coach. Out with the old cosy club and in with the new.


4.) 31 Jul 2018 22:41:04
G62 consistent in that he's averaged 6 goals and 6 assists a season in the league for the last 5 years. His return from deeper midfield is fairly steady. See what you mean on the contract situation though.


5.) 01 Aug 2018 12:28:08
Fair point Wire mate but with the lack of interest in Aaron from others so far 30 million might be ambitious.
Ox had both Liverpool and Chelsea chasing him last season but so far Aaron has no one very excited about signing him.
Just wondering what we see in Aaron Liverpool city Chelsea and Spurs don't see.


 

 

22 Jul 2018 18:29:27
Just searched Arsenal rumours and we are either about to give Iwobi a new contract or Lazio are looking to sign him.
Difficult to either is true.
Poor old Danny Welbeck seems the only player who we aren't prepared to offer a new deal, Iwobi Xhaka Chambers have all struggled and performed below Danny's level for us yet get new deals while Danny who is hardly a world beater but has done much better than the other 3 seems no longer required.

gunner62

1.) 22 Jul 2018 23:01:59
Chambers? I thought he did well the end of the season.


2.) 23 Jul 2018 07:01:01
I hope the lazio rumours are true. how he kept getting in the team was one of last season's great mysteries!


3.) 23 Jul 2018 09:38:34
Excited about the Iwobi deal, gives us a player that doesn't stink of Wenger too much but has the morals of the club, ticks a couple of boxes there! He's been on and off but can develop into a zaha kind of a player. If not the actual potential but the kind of things he does on the pitch, stay wide AND cut inside-Emery loves, can cross and press, I think that is what Emery would want/ can get out of him. Looking forward to watching the BIG17 grow under UE. What do you guys think?


4.) 23 Jul 2018 11:55:02
Total waste of space, needs to be shipped out, i'm sure we have a younger player with more talent waiting to come through.


5.) 23 Jul 2018 16:20:32
If Iwobi Stays then i am not happy with Emery one bit he is by far the worst Arsenal winger I’ve seen in a long time.


6.) 23 Jul 2018 23:26:26
Although it was against a beach ball and flip flop wearing Burnley playing deeper Iwobi actually looked better than awful, if he was to have any future at Arsenal it's not out on the wing where the linesman is more involved then Iwobi 99 games out of 98.


7.) 24 Jul 2018 00:04:30
To be fair iwobi looked a decent player at first but stagnated like many. I think we really should give the lad another season or maybe a loan. Always seemed like there's potential there for me. Funny tho a lot of other fans at my work think he looks a decent player.


 

 

28 May 2018 17:05:09
Papawhatever Greek lad is about to join us according to Ornstein and the bbc main page.
Not 100% certainty but as close as it gets to being one in the world of footie rumours.

I know not everyone is a fan but some of the finishing at the women's world cup is top draw.
Ellen White looks to me to be the complete center forward while Lucy Bronze just looks every inch a class player in everything she does.

gunner62

1.) 20 Jun 2019 21:49:56
It's been great to watch mate.


2.) 20 Jun 2019 23:09:12
You talking about the finishing gets me excited about it finishing. 😉.


3.) 21 Jun 2019 16:16:24
Theres only one world cup going on currently that's worth watching. and its the Cricket World Cup. Its summer, crickets time. stop watching football and come over to the light side G62.!


4.) 21 Jun 2019 17:33:37
Wow Cricket I remember that Epping mate! A game that used to be played over 5 long long days where something interesting happend on average once every 48 minutes :-) .
I hear they've speeded it up now where and your almost guaranteed something worth watching wil happen every 7 minutes 38 seconds, I'm not sure I'm ready for that kind of excitement Epping :-)
Anyone up for the chess world cup :-) .


5.) 21 Jun 2019 18:08:36
Exactly G62, and yet its still 1000% more interesting than Womens yawnball.


6.) 21 Jun 2019 19:43:02
Mate if you think Oliver Giroud is an excellent team player who also scores goals take a decent look at Ellen White, if she and Lucy Bronze were male they would be playing for Real or Barcelona because they really ate that good at what they do.


 

 

09 Jun 2019 19:08:33
Very very impressed by the standard of football at the women's world cup, it's moved on a million miles in the last decade.
Players officials the lot it's looking closer and closer to the men's level each year.

gunner62

1.) 09 Jun 2019 20:14:15
But. does anyone really care that much?


2.) 09 Jun 2019 21:07:04
It is progressing that’s for sure! I can’t see why the officials wouldn’t get near the standard but it’s impossible for the standard of the players to get anywhere near mate. I will of course be watching and showing my support especially as one of the starting 11 are from my town.


3.) 09 Jun 2019 21:28:05
Probably not that many now Jim but plenty might well in the future mate, I think the men's game will always be dominant but like tennis I think the women's game won't be far behind in public interest.


4.) 09 Jun 2019 21:47:36
Not far behind in public interest? Name me 20 professional players then. The level of football is shocking, if your comparing it to the men's (which you are) the nearest thing is pub football. It's alllllll true.


5.) 09 Jun 2019 22:05:03
Hi Jack I did say in the future mate which doesn't mean in the here and now or the present to be precise, sorry if that wasn't clear to you first time round :-) , you do seem to struggle with my posts quite often my old mate if there is anything I can do to help please let me know:-) .


6.) 09 Jun 2019 22:07:23
I didn't bother watching the men's game today, but watched the women's.


7.) 09 Jun 2019 22:32:17
Me too Eden but ( don't tell Jack :-)


8.) 10 Jun 2019 12:53:16
Women's football has improved greatly. Do I want to watch it in general? Nope.


9.) 10 Jun 2019 13:37:57
Its not so much the quality that bores me, but its the whole social justice nonsense that's attached to it that is getting on my nerves. Already we have seen pressure on existing clubs to start a womens team, including Man Utd who IMO were hounded in starting one. Now we are seeing questions over the gender discrepancy in wages, as in why are the premiership clubs paying their male footballers more than their women. How long before a club a sued for this difference? Do you really want to see a future where a club may be forced to cut its wages for the mens team so it can match for its womans team? Its funny though, as with all the imbalances and issues in the mens game, I don't know why, if starting from scratch, with a clean slate, you would want to set up the womens game in exactly the same mould. I saw a good interview with an ex-england female rugby player over the growing issue of the lack of a female Lions team. She said it might be better to not follow the same example, and instead of creating the less inclusive Lions womens team, create a northern hemisphere versus southern hemisphere competition instead, thus including France, Argentina etc who are not included in the Mens Lion games.


10.) 10 Jun 2019 15:02:05
Hi Epping mate I understand and agree with what you saying on equal pay but I doubt very much anyone is silly enough expect the women's game to equal the men's pay when they can (CURRENTLY, this is forJacky baby :-) only attract a fraction of the audience.
In the entertainment industry you get what you bring back in revenue which is why top actors get millions for a film and others simply make a living out of the industry.
When the women's game can attract the same huge crowds and TV audiences as the men's game then female players have every right to expect parity, I guess it's a bit like supermodels where woman currently reign supreme in terms of money.
I watch France v South Korea and England v Scotland and thought how far it had come, 20 years ago there was no comparison but whether people like it or not ability wise the gap has shrunk dramatically over the last 20 years and in another 10 or 20 years it will only get better and better as more women get the chance to play.
Physically it will never be possible for men and women to compete against each other like Tennis and Boxing but anyone who has seen Nicola Adams in action will know technique and ability wise there is no limit to what women can't achieve.


11.) 10 Jun 2019 17:36:51
Epping, the women's teams are separate entities to the men's, they have a salary cap and can only spend 40% of turnover on wages. The discrepancy in wages is massive with the top earners in the WSL getting £35k a year, low earners £5k-10k. Moneys not going to be taken out of the men's game for them, they have to raise awareness and grow the sport to improve their wages.

{Ed001's Note - the FA banned women's football originally because it was getting bigger crowds than the men's game. There is no reason they can't return to that position in time.}


12.) 10 Jun 2019 18:15:48
Really? That's insane! Was that because it was taking away revenue or some other bs? How long ago was that?


13.) 10 Jun 2019 19:41:29
6 million viewers watch the England Scotland game yesterday on BBC that's an increase of 50% on the numbers who watched England's semi final 4 years ago.
I'm not sure what the viewing figures are for match of the day or eastenders but their is little doubt women's football in the UK is most definitely a very fast growing industry that I personally think will fair and square win over money from the men's game simply because of value for money.
If itv and or bbc offer a free alternative to Sky and BT ever increasing price and entrance fees to watch mens games continue to dwarf the price to watch the women's football families will naturally drift towards the best value for money entertainment.
The days of the fa simply banning any threat are long long gone this is 2019 and women lorry drivers Doctors Vicars are all part of every day life where only a tiny minority bat an eyelid at and women's football will become every bit as accepted as all other professions before too long.
If men's football has any sense it will up its own appeal by making itself less exclusive and more easily accessible by lowering it's prices and of course the wages it dishes out willy nilly to those within it.


14.) 10 Jun 2019 20:22:11
It will NEVER be at the same level as the men’s game, I remember years ago Martina Navratilova played vitas gerulaitis and got hammered .

I’m not saying the level won’t change but the gap will always be there.

{Ed001's Note - that is not skill though, that is about speed and strength. In a team game you can get away with some members who lack the speed and strength if they have the skill.}


15.) 10 Jun 2019 20:48:59
No skill? Really, interesting .

Disagree and so would Borg, McEnroe, Conners etc long before the super racket generation.

Look at most sports - I also remember when Jimmy White played Alison Fisher in a 3 frame charity match she hardly got on the table .

{Ed001's Note - I didn't say there was no skill, I said he beat her not because of skill. She would have had to be much better skillwise to be able to overcome the physical difference.

As for the others, who cares? That is irrelevant, there is absolutely no reason that a woman can not reach the same skill level, if given the chance to start young enough. You are talking about ancient history, when girls were not allowed to play footie or play snooker/pool as kids, while boys were encouraged to do so. Nowadays it is not the 1950s (your era) and boys and girls often take part in the same games and sports from a young age. That is a part of why they are showing such improvements. But they are limited by the ability of those they play against and with. Play against and with better quality and they improve even further. However the physical disadvantage is an issue.}


16.) 10 Jun 2019 20:49:15
If I want to see 2nd rate football I head off to watch Leyton Orient or 5th rate, Harlow Town. The sad thing is the players in league 2 are still far better than the women and yet will probably earn far less and will certainly not have their games shown on prime time BBC 1. There are many inequalities across life, and yet the 1 area where you can judge who is better is sport. This is why league two teams get smaller crowds, and league two players earn less than other men doing the the same job, but for a premiership team. The truth is they are not as good and therefore don’t deserve to earn the same. The same goes for the women. Premiership team women deserve more than women playing in lesser leagues, but if you tell me they deserve anyway near the men, even a league two player, then the world has gone crazy.

{Ed001's Note - so why not just scrap the divide and let them play in the same teams? Then the whining about pay differences can stop as they will earn the amount fitting to the level they reach.}


17.) 10 Jun 2019 21:16:08
Obviously and very happily there are obvious difference between men and women most of which the vast majority of both sexes find very very appealing about the other but when it comes to sport men will always hold the physical upper hand.
I don't want to be unkind to anyone but in all sports there are greats and those who make a living.
A fight between two Nicola Adams or between two Tim Witherspoon which one would you watch?
Two Martina Navratilovas or two Tim Herman's which one would you chose to watch?
It's not about competition between the sexes but about the standard of the product they offer, right now the men's game is still has the inside Lane but all I'm saying is the women's game is most definitely closing the gap in quality of entertainment that was once a incomparable into something that is now BEGINNING to show very strong similarities in most areas.
20 years ago a female James Bond would have a joke but now it's matter of when not if Jane or Jamie Bond appears and packs out cinemas.


18.) 10 Jun 2019 21:54:55
I totally disagree Epping mate, the standard of football on show yesterday was far far better than I've seen league one or two sometimes where kick and rush still lives on, there was absolutely no kick and rush from England or Scotland yesterday in fact at times it the first half I couldn't help but wonder why our England mens side couldn't display the same level of ability as a team as our women did.
If anyone has watched yesterday's game, Just check it out objectively you might just be surprised by what you see if you allow yourself to open minded, seriously What have you got to lose?


19.) 10 Jun 2019 22:19:23
Have to disagree G62. It’s not about skill versus kick and run, it’s about a game played at about 20% of the intensity. Anyone would look good at that, even a league 2 player, who I guarantee also looks a superstar in training. Are you seriously telling me a league 2 player wouldn’t get into the woman’s team, of course he would. Ed01, I agree, I would love to see a major tennis tournament played as a mixed, and I would suggest the number of female players still there to make week 2, let alone anywhere near the final, would be little to none. Each to there own I suppose, but when I do watch sport, I generally want to watch the best (Harlow town excluded) , and that’s always the men’s game imo. I along with most of the world can name most of the men’s 100m sprinters from the last few years, but maybe only one female, if that. Why, as they are still the champions of their field, but maybe it’s because you know deep down that all the men who can run that distance in the same time did not even qualify for the event.


20.) 10 Jun 2019 22:30:32
They do earn less than league 2 players! Average league 2 wage is 40k a year the top earners in the WSL get 35k.


21.) 10 Jun 2019 23:28:15
If you just had sports as mixed, resulting in no female representation, it would be a travesty for young girls, they would have no one to aspire to and they wouldn't bother to get involved in sport, which would be a terrible shame.


22.) 11 Jun 2019 01:41:38
Some of their long range shooting impresses me, but everytime I watch women's international football I can't help but think if I decided to have a gender swap I'd get a game for them.
I'm sure the standard will keep improving, but simply based on the numbers playing and the quality of the people they're playing with, it will take some time, and the womens level is still absolutely nowhere near the mens level.


23.) 11 Jun 2019 06:59:53
It's the entertainment business and the more enjoyable the product the more popular it becomes.
The women's game is getting bigger and better all the time and as TV viewing figures show it's increasing in popularity at a very fast rate.
The more popular it becomes the more young girls will be encouraged to take up the sport and the more that play the better the standard will become and it will self generate and evolve Just like every other sport and walk of life come to that.
Equal opportunity is spreading across the world and obviously the more any part of any society is allowed and encouraged to take part the better the quality will naturally become.
You only have to look at history to see that the more people of both genders all races and all classes are allowed the chance the more they succeed, and it's really not a threat to anyone but a good thing for everyone.

With no Sven to do so who is identifying our summer signing targets right now, is it Emery himself?
If so I hope Suarez isn't an indication of his eye for spotting talent.

gunner62

1.) 08 Jun 2019 10:54:55
Its a bit worrying summer for us, we are linked to many players, some are way of our reach and others are just as awful as D. Suarez.
Andersen seems a good defender good long pass in him and reads the game nicely as for Praet I think he’s another Suarez imo. Zaha to expensive and wants CL football. Gotze would be perfect to replace Miki and Ozil and Maddison is the perfect replacement for Ramsey imo.
Not saying it will happen just a thought on those players.
I wish the interest in xhaka from inter is true as it will generate extra cash and we will gladly get rid of him.
Wide player is an absolute must and we should give Saka a chance as he’s got tones of talent.
Again I’m not looking forward to this window as it looks like we are looking for cheap buys and not the best replacement of the out goings.


2.) 08 Jun 2019 11:29:47
I agree about letting all players who haven't exactly blossomed at Arsenal go this summer if possible and I'm not at all against promoting our own young players rather than sign players simply because they are cheap.
Obviously there are some cracking bargains to be found but you need the right people to find them, I'm convinced the Kante Vardy and Mahrez of next season are out thier somewhere just waiting to be spotted and given their chance but we need someone who has a fantastic eye for that side of the game and I've no idea if Emery is or isn't but bringing in Suarez after Sven had such a good job on summer signings doesn't fill you with great optimism but let's wait and see.


3.) 08 Jun 2019 17:52:22
I had one look at Suarez and realised he was way too weak for the PL.
I imagine Mislintat was definitely responsible for the purchases of Leno and Soldati’s, probably Torreira as well. Guendouzi May have had more input from Emery as he managed him at PSG.
This summer’s signings will be interesting to say the least.

Emery never coached Guendouzi it has been told way too many times and he has nothing to do with any of the singing. The player he recommended or had a say in is Suarez and we all know how’s that turned out.


5.) 08 Jun 2019 20:30:35
Moaning Gunner - you seriously suggest that Emery has no input in respect of signings?
A little word of advice, instead of whinging about other people’s comments try making an intelligent, interesting comment.


6.) 08 Jun 2019 21:26:24
The Eds have repeatedly told us Guendouzi signing was not down to Emery in any way shape or form.
It's yet more flat earth society thinking to continue to argue against facts as explained repeatedly by the Eds.

Also what's with all this personal stuff with Moe RG?
He's a really nice bloke who has always shared his honest opinion and I for one totally respect his posts and opinions whether I agree with them or not.
A lot more respect is due here towards the Eds and Moe RG mate.


7.) 08 Jun 2019 23:20:23
I was wondering the same, the irony of the posts! 😂.


8.) 09 Jun 2019 00:34:27
Moaning Gunner? Lol you’re too funny RG didn’t know you had a sense of humour dude.
G62 mate, that’s alright little him be himself a little at least he wrote something different than his usual copy and paste posts.


9.) 09 Jun 2019 14:49:29
The words maybe a little different Moe but the value was of the same ultra low value as ever ;-) why he can't Just accept reality and debate and swap opinions like everyone else does is beyond me mate, I remember him writing some quite interesting stuff in his really early posts but wow that seems a long long time ago now.


10.) 09 Jun 2019 18:02:47
I’ve always said, certain people on here slag everyone’s posts and then moan when you you have a niggle at there posts lol it’s comical.


11.) 09 Jun 2019 17:15:09
Wait for the raver to turn up! then we will get the embarrassing classics on repeat ad nauseam 😂.


12.) 09 Jun 2019 20:18:32
62 mate, the funny part is, I don’t remember moaning in my posts I was just simply pointing something in his repetitive posts that wasn’t true but he can’t except it. Also I don’t recall being rude to him or anyone in fact ever on this site.
Anyways it is what it is with some insecure individuals we come across in life but trust me it doesn’t bother me.


13.) 09 Jun 2019 22:39:46
You weren't rude Moe mate and I've no idea why RG decided to bizarrely have a go at you for no apparent reason, but your totally right to ignore his crazy outburst mate.

Can only field the best 11 you have, let's just hope they don't improve too much.


2.) 12 May 2019 22:39:41
Aside from buying Messi I don't really see how you can really improve the City squad that much, Liverpool have shown the way it's down to rest of us to catch up.

Absolutely Ed047 mate why give people the real picture which they will forget in minutes when you can feed them total rubbish that will keep them coming back for more weeks and weeks later and no matter how often these media sources are proved to be making it all up people still keep believing everything they tell them time after time.
It's a strange phanononm.

This all stems from Torreira saying he's finding the English language difficult to learn, that's it.
But the papers turned finding learning English difficult into finding living in England difficult into his family not being happy in England or liking the weather or even the food in England because London only offers fish and chips and Yorkshire pudding and the Italian weather being so warm all year round.
I bet Torreira will be more careful about what he says in future, imagine if he went to see the Fredie Mercury film and said he wasn't a fan of Queens music :-) the press would want him deported on the grounds of treason:-)

{Ed047's Note - He said at the end of the interview in question that he had time to adapt but it’s best for the press to conveniently miss that part out or there’s no story.

The fact Ormstein is reporting it at least means we are genuinely in talks about signing the player which is a huge step up from most of the nonsense stories.

I'd rather we waited for our champions league return until we can make an impression beyond simply getting out of the group stages.
8 last 16 exits on the trot did nothing for our reputation in world football and when we get back I'd like it to be different next time round.

Sounds good to me Glen mate and the nice thing about football is if even if we aren't any good and they let us go after a month you tend to get paid off big style, so a nice 3 year contract at 20k a week would be nice, if we started in July and are really bad we could be back posting on this page even before the new season starts:-)

I've enjoyed sharing opinions with you Glen mate and who knows maybe Emery or someone at Arsenal is reading and taking notice of us both :-)

Arsene was never keen on spending on defensive players, how many years were we without a top keeper before Cech arrived? It used to frustrate me no end that we would finish 3rd or 4th with a keeper who simply wouldn't get into another top 14 team at the time, especially in 2008 when we only dropped out of the title race in the last few games and the big difference between us Chelsea and United that season was they had keepers that saved them points while we had 3 keepers all of who repeatedly cost us points, but Arsene simply wouldn't address the situation and splash out on a top keeper or defenders after that.
Imagine if Klopp didn't see the value of spending big on a defender where would Liverpool be without that missing peace of their jigsaw.
Fergie broke the premier league treansfer record for Ferdinand from Leeds back when 30 million was an absolute fortune but he had the football intelligence to know what value he would bring to his team.
Ok we are can't break any spending records on defenders or any other players right now but we can wake up and finally smell the cappuccino and start respecting and appreciating how important the defensive side of football is again.
Lay the foundations then what you build on them has a real chance of standing the test of time not only over a season but who knows maybe 5 to 8 seasons or longer.
