  1. Got everyone talking about Coca Cola so I'm not sure they mind so much. Also, I see Pogba has got in on the act and made sure we all know Heineken are the beer sponsors of the Euro's.

    Even more ridiculous, Sky are also reporting that we've rejected a Villa bid for Smith-Rowe I know his contract runs out in two years but if we don't tie him down to a long term deal we might as well pack up and call it a day.

    In our first 14 games, until 4th December, we've got Chelsea at home, City away, Sp*rs at home, Leicester away, Liverpool away, Utd away & Everton away. It's going to take some performances, and even more so results, if Arteta is still going to be in charge at Christmas.
  4. I agree with France being the favourites. I think they've got the best squad & team. Belgium could finally actually win a tournament however I've got a feeling for Italy.
  5. I think Foden has been handled perfectly at City by Pep. Everyone was on at Pep about why Foden was only playing a few minutes here and there, then disappearing for a month, then playing a game or two before disappearing again. Once he was 'ready' and Pep let him off the leash he's looked like the best youngster/player in the league. In Europe even. I just wish Saka and Smith-Rowe could have been protected in the same way instead of already being the main players everyone looks to at Arsenal. I suppose City having the squad they have helps of course.

    @Gotters The 3rd episode is good too. A lot about Jimmy White who was nuts too by the way. I thought a young Steve Davis looked like a young Rodney Trotter. This 69 break from Higgins they spoke about in Episode 1 is just insane. Some terrible positional shots followed by the most amazing pots. Shots that players nowadays certainly wouldn't take on. One missed pot would have been game over.

    Forget about Pep and his super tactics and false 9 and all that. We played with a false right back last night. And had three of them on the bench. That's what you call super tactics.
  8. Apparently the ref swore at a couple of PSG players a few times and they are crying about it. So is Poch. Players are only too happy to say whatever they like to each other, and the ref, but the moment he swears back they start crying. Maybe the ref shouldn't be swearing but don't give it if you can't take it. Didn't a ref square up to a player that swore at him or something recently in a league one game? I think he got in trouble for it too. The players all lost their shit then too. Also, how good was Dias yesterday.
  9. £34 reduced to £25. (Tesco clubcard price) Got one on the weekend. Hadn't tried it before. Would definitely recommend it.

    Imagine playing Balogun ahead of Nketia before he'd signed a contract only for him to leave on a free. That would be a bit embarrassing and a bit shambolic. Not to say Balogun is an answer right now but he should definitely be ahead of Nketia. If Auba doesn't start I would go with Martinelli up top on Thursday and Balogun on the bench. It's a bit of a gamble but the unpredictability and energy of these two up top has got to be better than Nketia who doesn't quite do anything. Xhaka to continue at LB or play Saka there is also another question. Or should we even go with C
  11. Giggs would surely have been included but he's out now of course. Scholes is a certainty for me.

    So it's official, Balogun has signed the ting. Get him involved on Thursday? Might as well. Better option than Nketiah if you ask me.

    I'm not saying players should do what they like and not play as the manager has asked them to, but we don't seem to be intelligent enough to make the right choices in quick and tight situations. Like you say Ceballos has gifted 4 goals in the last 3 games and I saw somewhere, after Burnley, that Xhaka has made a mistake that has led directly to a goal for the opposition on 8 occasions. Not sure how far back this goes but gifting 8 goals from one player is way too many. The players are clearly following instructions but surely choices made in the moment come from setting up a

    Playing out from the back is hard to defend when we are giving goals away so cheaply and continuously but I think it's the players and not the playing out from the back that is the problem. Poor decisions, poor touches and poor communication. The Burnley goal and yesterday were wrong choices and poor control from the players. We seem to be set up ok but then make the wrong choices and the control from Xhaka and Ceballos is poor for a Sunday league player let alone from a professional footballer. Look at the Burnley goal. Ok, Xhaka's first touch was a bit shit but to

    As ridiculous as it might be I'm getting more and more convinced that there is something in Willian's contract which says he has to play in x amount of games, or at least a part of every game when fit or something stupid like that. If Martinelli and Pepe start against Benfica with Willian on the bench I might understand yesterday's substitution a little bit more but the chances are and I wouldn't be too shocked if Willian starts against Benfica. I hope Arteta doesn't persist with this into next season and this whole Willian thing is cut short in the summer. There must be a team in C

    This Balogun situation looks very much like it could turn into a Gnabry scenario. I know he wants to play but Arteta can't, and shouldn't, exactly just start him because he might leave but we would be better off promoting him ahead of Nketiah and telling him he's now behind Auba and Laca. This is surely understandable. Both of these are not getting any younger, we will rotate in this current climate with games coming thick and fast and he will get games, get a chance, and then the rest is up to him. I really think letting Balogun go is a mistake. Nketiah has been giv

    Willian and Luiz dropped? At least Mustafi isn’t playing.

    You forgot about Bellerin starting too. Where’s Gabriel? Willian not even on the bench. Has he finally been dropped or is he injured? Same goes for Luiz. Not even on the bench.

    Something tells me I'm probably in the minority but I still think Arteta should be given time. OK, we shouldn't be this shit, losing to anyone and everyone and unable to even score a goal or create any chances, home or away, against anyone, the top teams or the so called bottom teams. Arteta has stuck by and put his trust and faith in players that are repeatedly letting him down. If he continues to do this then yeah, maybe he's not the right man for the job and it's too big for him. I saw somewhere the other day that something he learnt from Pep was that you've got to be

    Things are pretty shit at the moment but it's really no surprise that we lost yesterday. Before kick off I hoped that the result would be one of those weird derby day results where form goes out the window but I really feared we would get a bit of a battering. Getting rid of Arteta would be absolute madness at this stage. Over the next 18 months or so we need to address the problems with the quality of players in our squad and not be looking at changing manager. Getting a new manager to work with these same players and expecting better results is just ridiculous. Until we

    This really needs time and patience (and some money). We aren't going to spend £200mill in the next transfer window like Chelsea, City or Utd might so it's going to have to be done over the next two or three windows. In the last window we brought in Partey and Gabriel, two fantastic signings. We need Arteta to be the constant here rather than bringing in another manager to hopefully get something out of the same players when most of them are clearly not top drawer and good enough. How many of the current players could be in the squad say on matchday 1 of the 22/23 season?

    Arteta definitely sounded pissed off and that's not a good thing for Pepe as he's already shown (Ozil, Guendouzi for example) that if you don't do exactly as he requires then you're out. Wages, price tag or potential isn't going to count for much. I think we are going to have to be very patient because Arteta is building something which will flow and work perfectly if all the parts are doing exactly as required. A bit like a formula 1 car. So finely tuned that even if the smallest thing is slightly off then you're not going to get the best out of it but when it all clicks and flows
