  1. Charly Musonda Jr.

    Yes we have. It's our fault, as in our club's fault, that they poorly evaluated where/when to send him out. That is not beyond our control, I'm afraid. He wasn't getting a sniff before or after any change in management. The board failed, again, with it's loan strategy.

    No smile that beautiful can be photoshopped
  3. Virgil Van Dijk

    I'll show myself out
  4. Alexis Sanchez

    I know they're different players & Hazard has qualities which nobody outmatches him at, but, Alexis has 40 league goals in 79 games (find me a striker not in Spain with that sort of output), whereas Hazard has only 9 more goals, but in 152 appearances. He's an underrated guy. A much better player at Arsenal than he was at Barcelona.
  5. Riechedly Bazoer

    I agree with every word. Just because we have a loan strategy, doesn't mean it's a good strategy. It's a shame for both the players and us, having our expectations raised and then dashed. I do hope we reform this somehow. But, it'll take a new Director of Football I think.
  6. The Conte Thread

    On a few rival forums, I kept reading Guardiola was the better manager in our bout, because they dominated the game per say. But truly, the team which changes their formation just so they can compete with you, kinda loses by default. When they literally lose, that's compounded. It IS part of being a great coach, knowing when to park the bus, knowing when not to take the game to a team. It takes confidence to be reserved. Guardiola showed no confidence by throwing the kitchen sink at us, it simply showed his desperation and lack of belief in his usual team when up against us. We're the team to beat, and I can't picture us not winning the league.
  7. The Conte Thread

    He's called King Conte He has a big Monty Hail Hail
  8. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    I thought the Ox was going to be on Hazard's current level when he first came onto the scene. And I think he would have been, if he'd gone somewhere else (United specifically.) He isn't arrogant enough, unlike Walcott.
  9. Riechedly Bazoer

    I feel like we were at our most unstable when stockpiling youngsters with potential vs. having ready made, experienced players. I'd really rather get in someone understated and consistent, who'd be happy to sit on the bench of a bigger club since they've already fulfilled their potential or near enough. Gonalons would be most ideal for me, followed by Parejo if we want a slight upgrade on Fabregas.
  10. James Rodríguez

  11. Guardiola's City look so, so average vs. Celtic. Should be losing by 2-3 goals already. He isn't half as special as people have made him out to be. Anyone could've done what he did given they had Messi, Xavi, Puyol, Iniesta, Muller, Neuer, Lahm etc. to work with. Their very best players aren't actually on the pitch, which, demonstrates further how much of a cock he is. He doesn't know how to pay respect to the opposition.
  12. The Conte Thread

    Just last night I was researching 'smart drugs' and what can help overcome procrastination other than discipline; the main recommendation above all herbal supplements etc. was actually meth. I did some more research, and saw that both meth & crack cocaine are wildly misunderstood. They've done many tests, and only 15% of users actually develop an addiction to either substance. The only people who become addicted, are those who have no other source of joy. That's to say, when you offer sex, or money, or a thrilling experience some other way to a crack/meth user, they'll take what you're offering over the meth. Just like how we'd have 60% less alcoholics if those alcoholics simply had more going on in life. Breaking Bad & GTA certainly don't help the reputation of meth. And I'd still be scared to try it. But, it isn't like... a huge dose of opium. Even heroin isn't bad compared to a lot of other similar compounds. Then there's the fact Speed is just the same as what Adderall is (Speed was also recommended for studying.) Shoutout all the drugs.
  13. 29. Nathaniel Chalobah

    I loathe WAGNH articles, but I love the smacks of realism you get in the comments there compared to here (I still love u guys though) "Ok.Right now he is our academy grad who has 5 appearances with an average of slightly over 11 minutes each substitute, midfield player in games in which we are leading and hoping to keep the shop doors closed for whom we hope has a great future ahead of him. I’m glad he is trusted with that role and hope he flourishes, finding even greater success. But none of us can say he is our ever dependable midfield destroyer because he simply hasn’t played enough for us to know that yet." Then there's some comment basically saying "So, Mikel?". I choked on my crisp.
  14. Man City - Chelsea

    In what way were our players not under control? They didn't react to slapping, didn't react to choking, didn't react to being pushed over, but instead, only 1 player I saw (Chalobah) gave a 'no, back off' shove to Aguero. Laughable.
