Re: Wimbledon 2012

I know it's tennis and Centre Court is hardly going to be a cauldron of hate but I expected (and hoped) that the atmosphere would be more partisan. Was never going to happen. This isn't football, and Federer is too well respected and will always be supported by the Wimbledon crowd. I'm surprised yo...

Re: Wimbledon 2012

I don't understand why so many people at the game are supporting Federer. I comprehend that a considerable minority of English people refuse to support Murray because he doesn't support England at major football tournaments (or whatever smokescreen people use to try and hide that pathetic excuse). B...

Re: Des Kelly in the Mail

A couple of quotes from the forum on the Denver Post. If you want a blue-print of how Arsenal will look down the track, look at The Avalanche. Bottom feeding team, filled with middle tier talent, always waiting, waiting for one of those low lives to ride in on their trust steed and save the organiz...

Re: Sunderland Calling

Sounds like a good laugh, would be too much effort for me unfortunately, home games are enough travel as it is! Plus I'll probably have a game of my own that day unless you want to tempt me by significantly enhancing my wages? :twisted: :-D We can offer you a WHOLE orange at half time rather than t...

Re: Des Kelly in the Mail

Xavier Rivoire spoke about this on Newstalk's Off the Ball show this week. He is well connected. Is he actually well connected or is it just like Guillem Balague where people are taken in merely by the fact he's a bona fide foreigner and therefore lap up the bollocks he probably just repeats from f...

Re: Alisher Usmanov criticises Arsenal board

The problem stems from Kroenke and unfortunately will not change while he is there. I imagine Wenger will leave at the end of his contract but I would imagine that they will then hire the most compliant out of work manager. If Gazidis left somebody with equal disregard for the football part of the f...

Re: Van Persie saga, officially not extending contract.

Robin wants to win trophies. He'd rather win them at Arsenal , especially as they will give him a good deal (but crap compared to City). However he realises from his conversations with the powers that be that they have no ambition. He issues a statement that basically says, I've had enough, you pro...

Re: Van Persie saga, officially not extending contract.
