  1. I’ve heard Wembley mentioned... ironically there’s almost certainly more Liverpool fans in London than in Liverpool!
  2. He’s done his achilles today - completely unrelated injury - will be out for 6months. Horrible for the lad!
  3. We’ll probably find out in a month or so. I expect the season will get played out.
  4. We’ll definitely get John Stoned back. edit: oh no, I didn’t see that Barry had already set the trap... shame on me!
  5. Lingard’s cousin plays for our ladies’ team. Still don’t want him though. I did however rally rate him as a youngster - I remember him at an u21 England tournament - can’t remember exactly when but he looked a top prospect. Think it was before he’d broken into Man U’s first team and had been on-loan (Derby maybe).
  6. I agree - he was very poor and looked massively overpriced in his first season but had been excellent recently. Obviously took him a bit of time to settle and adjust but I’d have him (Fred not Lingard) in a heartbeat here.
  7. Why have you got no confidence in Brands signings? I would keep the vast majority of the players we’ve brought since he began his role... it’s many of the ones before he started who we need to move on.
  8. Claus Thomsen is possibly the worst player I’ve seen play for us... he’s done well to avoid the worst XI’s so far!
  9. GK - Southall RB - Coleman LB - Digne CB - Gough CB - Materazzi RW - Kanchelskis LW - Limpar CM - Arteta CM - Cahill Att - Richarlison Att - Rooney Bench - Howard, Heitinga, Li Tie, Pienaar, Gueye, Eto’o, Lukaku
  10. I read somewhere that he’s off to Dortmund.
  11. I think we need a top quality first choice right back signing and have Seamus as a more than capable back-up/ competition. I don’t see Kenny as being good enough and think we’d be wise to sell while his stock is ‘high’. We’d probably get £15-20m for him. Don’t sign Sidibe saving £14m and move early for Max Aarons at Norwich (maybe £30m), who has really impressed me and has a quality that our back line is desperately short of - PACE!
  12. I think I’ve made my mind up on him now! No thank you!
  13. Offside/ in goalie’s vision are exactly the same explanation of why it was disallowed. I haven’t disagreed about us being stuffed by VAR - we were as I don’t think Gylfi affected the play - as rightly said de Gea was already wrong footed. Your original post said, ‘They're still saying it was disallowed because of offside but surely it can't be offside if a defender got the last touch.’ I merely pointed out that, it was a deflection and if the ref/VAR (wrongly) saw Gylfi as offside and interfering in play then it CAN be offside if the defender got the last touch with it being a deflection.
  14. Or interfere with play as Palfy points out. I don’t think he was interfering with play but that’s the reason the ref/VAR has disallowed it. The example you’re giving is when players ahead of the game are not interfering with play. Exactly!
  15. The moment the ball is played forward, Sigurdsson is offside so it doesn’t matter that it hit the defender. If the defender had control of the ball and passed it back then there wouldn’t be any offside.
  16. The left winger coming inside a lot has been a clear tactic since we’ve had Ancelotti. He likes his right winger wide and direct (that’s why Walcott has been important) and the left winger to come in field more - something Iwobi and Bernard can do (I think this role would suit Gordon too). Walcott may still have a role next season but I can certainly see a rapid and direct right winger being a priority signing.
  17. I like McGregor - think he’d suit our league.
  18. Very well! (Sorry to sound like a Chuckle Brother!)
  19. I think it was more that Kroenke held the majority vote so Usmanov’s ideas/vision weren’t ever going to be ‘passed’. My impression is that many Arsenal fans wanted Usmanov to have more control as he wanted to really go for it whereas Kroenke was maybe just keeping things steady and sitting on his investment. I have no doubt that Usmanov is and will continue being an influence here. The big thing we need is getting our commercial income much much higher (and above board) as without the evidence of income, we’re hamstrung with our spending on wages and transfer fees and having a multi-billionaire is almost pointless. Seeing what happens to Man City will be very interesting as there’s a chance that FFP will be abolished as all it’s doing is protecting the already top teams e.g. Man U and Liverpool as they are commercially miles ahead of all others - they can spend hundreds of millions more than other teams legitimately under the current rules... how can a team like us or say Villa or Newcastle catch them? Man City and Chelsea have got there through money when there were different rules but obviously now have the ‘comparable’ worldwide fan bases and sponsorship deals.
  20. Looks like Kean just behind the Portuguese speakers.
  21. This is my stance. I’d like him to kick on here despite not being his biggest fan. I don’t think his England slot is as nailed on as it’s been as I think Southgate will have a look at Henderson in some of the upcoming games - that may actually be good news if Pickford’s got a bit of real competition for his spot.
  22. Fair point - the stats only show so much.
