Re: Mikel Arteta, success or failure? - Merged thread.

SteveO the lowering of standards began in the summer of 2006. We have a significantly better squad now than anytime between 2008-2015. It's been a steady decline. It simply highlights the quality of the manager in charge and the mentality of players at the club. It's interesting on Walcott's recent ...

Disciplinary record

Looking at the stats so far this season, in league games we've received 5 red cards in 23 games, averaging a one red card per 4.6 games. In Europe we have played 6 games and yet to have a player sent off. Given that we play the same style of play in European games as we do in league games why have w...

Re: ALL Transfer talk - merged thread

A bit controversial for the next window but the more I watch Patrick Bamford the more I can see him fitting perfectly in the way Arteta wants his no.9 to play. He's not world class, maybe not even international class but he works hard for the team and scores goals, similar to the way a certain Alan...

Re: Mikel Arteta, success or failure? - Merged thread.

I was expecting an upturn in our performance's once Ozil and his posse were moved out the club. Admittedly, the first 47 minutes against wolves were the best we've played this season. However, to lose that game and now against villa is disappointing. It really is down to the manager now. We'll see w...

Re: Welcome Martin (Freddy Adu) Odegaard

Done a bit of research on his previous loan spells and he seems a genuine quality player. Player of the year at Heereven in his loan there, and at Real sociedad. If he settles quickly another year on loan will be good, as I can't see Real Madrid selling him if he turns out as good as he has played ...

Re: Wolverhampton Wanksocks A Tue 2nd Feb KO 6pm

So, the argument being made is that if Luiz hacked him down he'd only receive a yellow card. Yet he makes no challenge and gets a red because the attacking player clips his knee with his foot, and goes down. Diabolical decision. So, a Southampton player make a similar challenge as Boly's on Saka, bu...

Re: Manurine stained Y fronts H Sat 30th Jan KO 1730

Have to say that I would have taken the draw beforehand when I heard that our 3 best players were out, so I cant complain about the result, and I do think that by and large we worked hard Bellend is a useless c.unt - I know that many lambasted willian when he came on, but for me he was 100 times be...

Re: Mikel Arteta, success or failure? - Merged thread.

Between Edu and Arteta they have absolutely done us a favour in the last two windows by getting rid of players who just weren't serving the club well. The key was getting rid of ozil. As soon as he left, so did his followers at the club. Loan deals for AMN, Willock, Saliba and Guendouzi will either...

Re: Spuds or Victims*

Still amuses that the spuds specifically designed their ground around staging NFL games but because of covid they haven't been able to have a single game played. :D :D

Re: Benfica Bulbeyes A Europa lge last chance saloon Thurs Feb 18th KO 8PM

I know we've played them a couple of times since, but that 3-1 defeat aet at Highbury in the european cup 1991/ 92 still haunts me. Genuinely believed that squad was good enough to win it that season.

Re: ALL Transfer talk - merged thread

There must be a lot of happy posters on this forum with this transfer window. AMN, Willock, Mustafi, Sokratis, Kolasinac and the leader of that pack, Ozil all gone. Interesting to see Matt Smith go to Charlton too. With Sami Khedira going to Hertha Berlin will it see the termination of the guendouzi...

Re: Big Fat Frank tadaaa

Been winding up a shammers fan at work by telling him the fat frank is going to replace moyes in the summer, bringing with him Paul Ince as the director of football. He didn't see the funny side of that :D :D
