  1. Well the point is that he’s been more than happy to take Sky’s coin and work for an organisation that has shown contempt for fans for years, but this is too much now? He’s just another hypocrite.
  2. The more I think about it the less willing I am to give a shit what Neville says about anything. Using Sky as a platform to witter on about fans getting fleeced is beyond parody.
  3. It's crazy really as Arsenal have been my family team since my Grandad and Great Uncle were boys, which would be knocking on for 100 years ago now give or take. My mum grew up in a block within sight of the old ground and they've always been a huge part of my life. Dodging the horse shit and having a hot dog on the way to a game were some of my favourite memories with my old man. I think it's been understandable to get melodramatic in the past about your club being lost when you got new owners or Sky took the piss, but this is the first time I think the entity that is Arsenal football club has
  4. The thing is though, whilst it is greed of an almost unimaginable level you can understand why the clubs want to do it now. They're going to cop dogs abuse with this dreadful UEFA sanctioned format anyway so you might as well go the whole hog and take full control. In for a penny. Frankly, UEFA and FIFA have made rods for their own backs with all of this. It's an occasion where there's no goodies and baddies, just dreadful people on both sides. Nob heads the lot of 'em I tell you.
  5. He's probably only pissed off he wasn't consulted. I doubt he or any other manager with ambition would be daft enough to come out against it. He'll be angling a way to get into one of those clubs sooner or later as the thought of not being at the top table will eat him alive.
  6. Wenger was bumped on TalkSport for the Mourinho news. How is Jose still twisting him up even after he's retired.
  7. As an Arsenal fan I would love to see this too.
  8. Wenger is on TalkSport at 10:30 for his soul shakin', money makin', hip replacin' cheap trash promo for his upcoming TLC curtain raiser against Ivan 'The Terrible' Gazidis and Silent Stan Kroenke. Live, this August in the centre circle of the North London Astrodome before the opening round of high-stakes European Super Soccer League Soccerball. £49 on PPV.
  9. Real and Barcelona are for these purposes fan controlled and they’ve jumped in both feet first, and I reckon Bayern will be all over this eventually. City and PSG are only holding out or being cautious as they’ve got owners who are somehow on the board at UEFA or have got a grubby World Cup to keep on the rails. I really don’t mind people dragging Arsenal about this as our inclusion is ridiculous, but as a favour to me can we just pepper Spurs in there a bit too? I’m not discounting that League Cup triumph from about 15 years ago, but we are at least the holders of a trophy for a few
  10. I think these are all good points. It’s sad as I know it’s fun to laugh at Man Utd or Arsenal or Liverpool when they were shit, but no-one wanted to listen about how dreadful the owners were. These plans should come as no surprise, and that Kroenke is at the heart of it really is typical of the approach he’s had since day one. He’s thought nothing of wrecking a club, I don’t think he’d lose sleep over destroying the football league too. I don’t think these announcements are brinksmanship this time. These owners have been scheming up a way of cutting out the middleman for years and
  11. I guess the six teams have been picked as they have the biggest appeal globally. If you're trying to make money do you focus your attention on the few hundred thousand living near the ground or the billions in the markets around the world sat watching it on TV? It was inevitable something like this would end up happening as the game was slowly divorced from the community one step at a time. If people think fans won't put up with it they're in for a shock – they don't give a shit about Barry the 70 year old season ticket holder. Look at the amount of people that will pay money to watch the NFL

    That was dog shit. A recurring nightmare I have is us playing the Europa with Ceballos and Elneny as our starting midfield for all eternity. What are we expecting them to contribute at this stage? Just play some kids from the academy or a fan off the street or start with 9 or something. I’m absolutely certain it would make no difference.

    Arsenal

    I think it’s made football worse in almost every respect. I honestly cannot understand how anyone who enjoys the sport outside of an academic sense can defend it at this stage.

    Arsenal

    Just burn the whole thing, it’s absolutely ridiculous. The penalty is as onside as the goal and there was no contact anyway. It’s 100% a dive. We’ve got zero change again from a ref, and Atwell is an incompetent.
  15. I find Jamali hilarious. I like that he doesn't partake in all the knowingly hurdy-wordy-gurdy abstract weirdness of it and just acts how a normal person would if asked to be on this show. I think it plays into the desire I have for unfiltered regular people to be dropped into performative lifestyle formats. Like asking a couple of hairy arsed builders to critique a bloke's new makeover suit instead of Gok Wan for instance. He's still playing a character, but if everyone throws themselves into it then it becomes exhausting.
