Re: Mikel Arteta, success or failure?

I n fairness to Sokratis apart from getting overlapped a couple of times he did ok there and offered more fight and grit than any RB since Dicko. Tbh it looked to me like he was playing a flexible back 3 that could shift one player over to become a 4 with cover for the backs depending on which side...

Re: Mikel Arteta, success or failure?

One thing I'm pretty sure of with Arteta is that he will not be as stubborn or stupid as the previous 2 managers. He's a young manager trying to make a name for himself in the game and he is not going to continually persist with players that are not good enough unless he has no choice. If those play...

Re: West Ham A Mon 9th Dec 8pm

This team has a lot of issues but getting that treacherous piece of shit Xhaka out of it would solve a multitude of them. He is an absolute fucking disgrace, constantly giving away possession, zero effort, bottles out of challenges. His performance last night was more of a fuck off to the fans than...

Re: Bournemouth (H) PL 06/10 @ 14:00

Win is a win. The younger lads will have good and bad days that comes with learning the game. My main worry for this season is the Xhaka situation. Its absolute madness that hes in the side never mind captain. Emery has backed himself into a corner with that decision and it could be very costly. I a...

Re: Standard Liege (H) EL 03/10 @ 20:00

I don't see the trying too hard either. To me he doesn't seem to know what to do with the ball when he gets it and thats really worrying for the money we paid. I get that people take time to adapt to the pace of the league and settle in a new environment etc but even the slight flashes he showed in ...

Re: Frankfurt (A) 19/9 5:55pm (!)

I honestly think even with this team, a lot more could be done on the training pitch to make us a tighter unit. Thats one of the things thats getting me frustrated with the manager. Part of the reason we're shipping so many shots is because the gap between the defence and midfield is often far too w...

Re: Watford (A) Sun 15/09 @ 16:30

One thing I dont get though with Saliba.....

If he's going to be that good with one seasons experience elsewhere under his belt, is he not already better than the current options we are playing?

He can't be much worse can he?

Re: Unai Emery

i remain right behind Emery. Firstly just a reminder that we have Stan Kroenke in charge, so nothing is going to change very quickly , and even if it does then we won't get anyone any better than Emery. Secondly we all know that the defence is a makeshift one at the moment - Holding, Bellerin and T...

Re: Watford (A) Sun 15/09 @ 16:30

I've seen enough of Emery to know now that he isn't the man to take us forward. At the very least by now you should be expecting to see a direction, a style or a plan for what hes trying to achieve with this team. He may not have all the right players yet but if you can see where its heading then mo...

Re: AWAY to the Victims SAT AUGUST 24th 17:30pm

Having been up there every year bar this one I've seen some absolute hidings. I dont blame dick for trying to play them on the break. Theres no excuse for not playing laca though. Our hardest working striker away from home. Then to bring him on for 10 mins what was the point. We appear to have ourse...

Re: Newcastle Away

On the point of us maybe needing a world class no.10/an interested Ozil to create.... What struck me last season and again during this game is the lack of movement at times from our midfield and attack. So many times Douzi got the ball and was looking up and there was literally nothing on. It leads ...
