    Welbeck absolutely does not deserve to be there on club form but tbf he has generally always been good for England and is pretty versatile.
  2. Arsenal

    Another good performance from Xhaka. He’s been in decent form for a while now, fair play to him.

    That was it! Really Ruthless Crisps. They were so good.

    I know the ones you mean, I think one of the flavours was hot wings? Despite my best Googling efforts though I can't find anything.

    Sevilla are pretty shite but thoroughly deserved to go through. Mourinho is a coward and got what was coming to him.

    Interesting how you claim he spat at a 14 year old girl when he’s clearly doing it at the dickhead behind the wheel putting his daughter and other road users at risk. I’m not condoning what he did, it’s disgusting. I’m just pointing out that famous people are held to a totally different set of standards and it’s stupid to claim otherwise.

    If someone filmed me spitting at a car and put it on YouTube, I’d be sacked? Are you actually serious?

    Also Butland is shit - ok, not shit -- overrated. Really looking forward to Arsenal replacing Cech with that dickhead in the summer. Pickford is miles better but all the English keepers are overhyped really.

    I don’t disagree that they have some scummy fans but come on. What happened yesterday was about protest, not hooliganism.

    It’s not really that dissimilar although they did at least play actual strikers against Barça/Bayern.

    To be fair that's a tactic even big clubs use away from home against really top opposition, mostly in Europe. You didn't get teams going to Pep's Barca and trying to play expansive football, they'd go there and try to sit tight and nick something because otherwise they'd get annihilated. I'm not saying this Man City side are at that level, but they're not a million miles away. In theory the Hazard at No9 thing was stupid when you have Morata or Giroud who can both act at outlets, but I'm pretty sure that if you look at this stats he does absolutely fuck all in the way of defensive work, so maybe Conte thought it was the only way he could get him into the XI.

    Chelsea were very negative but I think the criticism is a bit OTT. This Man City side are very, very good and have handily dispatched teams trying a variety of tactics against them. Spurs tried to press them earlier in the season and got destroyed. It seems that Neville on Sky in particular is always very quick to lay into whoever is playing City instead of acknowledging how hard it is to play against them, though I can't think why that might be.

    We’ll tbf I’ve already stated that I think it’s pretty ridiculous that you’ve got people who continue to go week in week out despite seemingly despising the manager, all the players, the board, and most of the other fans, screaming obscenities all game at their own team. I don’t think all the disenfranchised people at the moment fit that description though by any means. A lot of these people have been going for decades and if they give up their ST they may never get one again. So they’re just waiting it out I guess, showing up because they’ve already paid and they love their club, but extremely disillusioned with the way things are going. Surely you recognise this is a pretty unique situation? A club totally in thrall to a legacy manager who would clearly have been sacked by now were it not for his legendary status. So apparently everyone just has to wait around for him to retire, because no one upstairs is willing to fire him. It’s like Freddie Shepherd’s ‘Bambi’ situation multiplied tenfold. Wenger willingly passed up several opportunities to bow out on a high, but most fans are still reluctant to be too critical of him. Personally I no longer agree with that and feel that gratitude clause has expired, but I think the majority either don’t want to be vocally anti-Wenger, or simply feel there’s no point because it makes no difference. So they’re plodding on, tired of a team playing poor football under a manager who they no longer seem to believe in, and just waiting for the end to come. And waiting. And waiting.

    Eh, maybe you’re right. I don’t personally ever leave early, but I am sympathetic to people who fork out thousands of pounds a year to end up in the situation we’re in at the moment, the entire club seemingly in limbo while Wenger has one more crack at the poker table as the last vestiges of his former fortune slip through his fingers.
