  1. Arsenal 2-0 Chelsea

    I'm convinced Sarri cannot handle managing a big club. His Sarri-ball nonsense may work for smaller teams, but when you already have 50-60%+ of the ball due to being the bigger team, you have to find out how to break teams down. Playing Hazard as a false nine and CONTINUALLY CROSSING THE BALL TO PLAYERS WELL UNDER 6 FEET is certainly not the way. He is struggling immensely when he comes up against any sort of quality, has no plan B, is tactically naive and stubborn. The board got what they wanted anyway. A yes man. Well, that yes man may as well drive all of our best players to the airport because they will not stick around for this bullshit. If he wasn't gone before, Hazard is definitely gone now with these terrible tactics and teammates. CHO too. Luiz back to his worst. Willain and Alonso combo = Tweedle-dumb and Tweedle-dee. Kovacic completely anonymous as usual. Hazard didn't care towards the end. Even Azpi had a bad game. Fuck the board.
  2. Chelsea 2-1 Newcastle

    Give the ball to Hazard with his back to goal when marked by about 6 Newcastle players. Great fucking tactic this is. Do exactly what Rafa wants. Fucking sort it our Sarri ffs.
  3. 10. Willian

    Dogshit. Should have been sold a long time ago.
  4. 5. Jorginho

    Suicidal player to have in front of the defence. Presses high up the pitch and vacates so much free space to attack when he inevitably fails to win the ball. About as stupid as asking Fabregas to be the only CDM. Ridiculous tactics.
  5. Mateo Kovacic

    Was this after she sent a carrier pigeon to Maradona? She is about as useful as a glass hammer.
  6. The Board

    Unless a miracle happens, i.e. we sign: Kepa, Kovacic and a winger under 30 (Martial for Willian?) AT LEAST, the board should be hung, drawn and quartered. If we're not saving for a stadium anymore, where the fuck is the investment now???
  7. Thibaut Courtois

    Madrid fans are going to eat him alive. Gets beaten at his near post faaaaar too often. Be really nice to get Kovacic in return.
  8. Thibaut Courtois

    Let him go get beaten at his near post somewhere else then. His attitude always stank. Best in the world at defending his area and being a prick. Overrated in every other aspect.
  9. The Conte Thread

    When I look at some player's performances yesterday compared to Barcelona (e.g. Willian), I can't help but feel sorry for him. OK, at times it does feel like Conte doesn't care as much but that is also on the players. It's a two-way street. Who started feeling that way first is an irrelevant chicken-egg debate. We're in a place now where we're running out of top managers to choose from. My first thoughts are that he should stay and be backed in the summer - I think we will do well next year if we've fewer competitions to think about. But I also don't want this year-over-year yo-yo season shit to continue. I also don't think there is a better manager out there to choose from. If the air can be cleared during the summer, I'd like him to stay. Regardless, the fact remains that we need more investment if we want to challenge on all fronts. The board will not change though. The likes of City will continue to spend big (despite their very inflated/imaginary 'revenue streams') and we will scrape around in the bargain bins. Hey, at least we go big or go home in recent years (win the league or be shit). Which means next year....
  10. Deadline Day!

    Fuck Emenalo and Marina. If I am shit at my job I get fired, but these useless sacks of shit probably get a bonus regardless.
  11. Deadline Day!

    Ross Barkley is absolutely fucking dreadful. Why do people want him here exactly? Where will he play?! CM? Can't hold onto the ball to save his life. On the wing? Not good enough. People need to realise that he is far from 18 - he's almost 24 and he's done absolutely nothing of note. Nothing. It is a blessing we haven't signed him.
  12. Eden Hazard

    Not if Roberto Martinez has anything to do with it... Looking to injure him...again.
  13. General Transfer Talk

    We are slowly meandering towards Michael Hector and Papy Djilobodji territory....
  14. Virgil Van Dijk

    The only way this makes ANY sense is if Azpi is to be deployed as a RWB and/or Cahill is being brought out to pasture (unlikely). Considering his price and injury record, it still makes the least amount of sense compared to LITERALLY ANY OTHER POSITION ON THE PITCH.
  15. Yeah, it's literally the last on a list of the very last a very general, nondescript tab called 'The Site'.... I don't think you need to be an expert to know that someone new to the site would likely never see that and never know that the site is mainly a forum. Betting tabs are ahead of it... @Jim I'm not complaining, I'm just trying to help. I just want any newbies to know that we are also a forum - makes them stick around longer. If you would like me to do a UX review, I'd be more than happy to help.
