Re: The Footie Thread 2014/15

I didn't mean it as a slight on Fergie's abilities at all. Moreso a comment on how perfect an adversary Wenger was at that time, even down to the way he looked. I loved that narrative - the aloof French intellectual against the belligerent working class Scott. I loved how much our success needled Fe...

Re: The Footie Thread 2014/15

Jesus Wenger’s presser after the game today got me right in the feels. A gentleman and a class act until the very last. The outpouring of goodwill after the announcement has reminded me how proud I was to have someone as unique and progressive as him as our manager in those early days. I loved that ...

Re: The Footie Thread 2014/15

What is there left to play for bar the Europa League? I have as much confidence in us winning that with Wenger as I would with Henry. We might even be as good as out by Thursday anyway.

If we're going to appoint a former player with fuck all experience I'd much rather go for Arteta.

Re: The Footie Thread 2014/15

No chance. What if he does alright and they give him the job full time?

I find him a seriously unlikable character quite apart from the complete lack of experience.

Sanchez lost possession 35 times in a game recently...

We were a fucking embarrassment last night.

Re: The Footie Thread 2014/15

Kane's looked like a Gerrard special to me but Sky showed fuck all angles of it.

I also think that offside rule is bollox. Kane being there informs Lovren's decision to lunge at the ball.

Re: The Travel Thread

I was heavily pregnant and had no issues.

Just back from my travels and my advice would be go to Myanmar instead. Blew everywhere else I visited out of the water...until I got to Japan.

Re: The Travel Thread

I’ll probably watch the football somewhere in Hanoi tonight if anyone fancies the oddest boardie meetup ever :lol:
EF, the ball and chain must be getting on your tits at this stage surely?

Casino, have you been to Sapa? What’s the best way to get there and can I DIY it or should i go on tour?

Re: The Footie Thread 2014/15

Even by Arsenal standards it's difficult to comprehend how much we've ballsed up this last week or so. I genuinely thought the squad looked pretty decent before the season started, on the assumption that we'd add 1 or 2 before the deadline. Having said all summer that there was no chance Sanchez wou...

Re: The Footie Thread 2014/15

No idea. I assume / pray it's 75m + add ons. We're trying to send Wilshere on loan to Birmingham for the last year of his contract. Rumour has it we can't comply with the PL wage rules and there's a fire sale to get players off the wage bill. What an absolute shit show. I can understand some deals g...

They're getting Mahrez apparently.

Lots of reports suggesting that we'll sell Sanchez for 50m +5m add ons if we can get Lemar for...90m. Jesus...

Re: The Footie Thread 2014/15

If he only played twice a year I'd be fine with it. It wouldn't matter what poor Danny did - you'd never accept him. Same with Ox. Ramsey on the other hand could ride your wife and you'd still give him a free pass! I think an end of season trolley dash is the best we can hope for currently. It's a ...
