    For me, I think more than anything, it’s the football that gets me. It’s genuinely painful to watch, soul destroying at times. I don’t see that ever changing under Emery, and he’s earnt zero goodwill after that end to the season. Give him backing in the Summer and give him one more season to improve on the shite he’s served up this season, otherwise I’d bin him off in a heartbeat.

    Kallstrom scored a pen in the FA cup run, so I was happy to let that one slide! Rumour was he did it doing a bicycle kick on a beach (but who knows), and our medical team didn't pick it up until the deal was 99% done. One of my personal favourites of the banter era. If we don't get in to the CL next season, I really fear for us. I have zero confidence that this current 'leadership' team can achieve close to what's required in the transfer market. After Monchi binned us off, there's been zero talk of an alternative. Transfer targets should already be lined up for this summer, but I'd be shocked if we have any remnant of a plan, after the embarrassment that was the Denis Suarez January window saga. We spend less than the likes of Everton and West Ham these days, and we aren't clever/lucky enough to make those rare mid-tier signings who can take a team like ours to the next level. We know there's going to be serious turnover this Summer (Ramsey, Welbeck, Cech, Lichsteiner) at the bare minimum, and I struggle to see how we'll replace them adequately. I imagine the money will go on the Ramsey replacement, and the others with squad promotions. Basically, win the Europa league and everything will be fiiiiine.

    In fairness, we’ve been gutted by injures in these last few weeks. If all our defenders were fit, you’d argue we’d have lined up with a completely different back four.

    Clearly a set-up? Would be quite the staging, seeing as Artem has been booted off the card already.

    Joe Rogan had Yoel Romero on his podcast, with Joey Diaz acting as (a rough) translator. Thought it might end up being a car crash, but actually it was really interesting. Yoel is a great story teller, and extremely charasmatic.

    What can you say, to that level of trolling?

    Mayweather vs. McGregor

    Have laid on: - Mayweather rounds 7-9 and - Mayweather KO/TKO rounds 9-12 and Conor to go down 2+ times. Can see Conor coming out quickly in the early stages, as this is his best chance of success, before Floyd ultimately figures him out and goes to work on him. Then can imagine Conor getting tired and recklessly looking for the KO in the mid-late rounds and Floyd putting him down.

    Joker origin film - Joaquin Phoenix Confirmed

    One of the core aspects of the character is he has no defined origin story. There have been a few interpretations of it in the comics, but no origin is defined as canon. I genuinely despair at the individuals over at WB who are coming up with this garbage. They clearly have zero understanding of any of the characters and are just trying to sell films based on the more popular characters, regardless of the ridiculous concept they come up with to push it. It just comes across as completely fake, and for me is a big part of why films like Suicide Squad were a flop. I don't like to compare Marvel to DC often, but one of Marvel's biggest strengths and reasons for the success of their universe, is they completely understand their characters and where they fit in the universe. It's almost as if they have some kind of....plan.

    Agree with this. Awful from Showtime. I watched their live YouTube stream and the sound was abysmal. These conferences are clearly being ran and dominated by Mayweather, and I think they'll try and use any trick/advantage they can, to try and unsettle Conor (like not telling him the format and throwing him and Dana up there to ad-lib). In that sense, I'm rooting for Conor to try and overcome all of this crap. In his q&a conference afterwards, Floyd Snr. was heckling him for about ten minutes straight, interrupting and shouting every time Conor tried to answer a question. He dealt with it very well, laughing it off, when it would have been easy to get annoyed. Hoping the rest won't just be more of the same, but I won't get my hopes up. The London crowd should be crazy one-sided though, so that'll be fun to watch.

    Sead Kolasinac is official. Looks like the end for Gibbs. Not a major surprise, as Monreal has cemented his spot as first choice LB.

    As expected, Wenger has signed his two year deal. It'll be confirmed tomorrow.

    Yeah, it's huge. I'm not sure on the exact figure, but a colleague told me last week he's been on the list for six years, and is c.48,000 in the queue. I think I've only been it on it for about three years, so I've got a long while yet!

    I'd say they didn't have much choice. What justification could they have for charging the highest ticket prices in Europe, when we're not even competing in the CL.

    The formation change has really benefited certain players, particularly Ozil and Xhaka. If Wenger stays next season (which I think is almost a guarantee now), I have a feeling he'll stick with it.
