  1. Fortitude liked Hephaestus's post in the thread Transfer Tweets - 2017/18 | Read the OP - also, check the twitter handle you're posting isn't fake.

    Absurd that Newcastle haven't broken their transfer record from 2005 yet considering all the money in football, no other Premier League club has a record dating from more than 2015.

    Stipe definitely deserves credit. Forget the caveats; he went out there and did what he had to do. Any issues Ngannou did or didn't have aren't his concern.

    Our best players are not an open market for other clubs to come and take as they wish. We compete with the biggest clubs for the biggest players, and despite our relative fall from grace, we still carry the air of a club you're not going to mess...

    But you do realise you've marginalised and reduced them in your own post, right? Arsenal were not thought of in those terms in the very recent past, but yet it's become a normalised state of being now. As I said before, the only team with such a...

    How long before frustration turns into a depressive cycle though? Frustration is a temporary state of being, so when you've experienced cycles that have gone on for ages... well..

    If you go into the start of every season believing this is the year when things finally turn around and your club makes the leap to the next platform, only to never reach it, and further, have it slip from your grasp as the components that gave...

  8. Fortitude liked bubbles_'s post in the thread Season upon season: what clubs must be the most depressing to support?.

    I don’t see how following any team can be depressing. Supporting a team isn’t just about winning things at the end of the season. If that’s all that matters then I feel a bit sorry for you. I don’t think anyone who goes to the games thinks like...

  9. Fortitude liked Luis DC's post in the thread Arturo Vidal.

    I understand that he is 30, but has a privileged biotype that allows him to run over and over, a bit like Sanchez, and an agressive style that could fit the Premier League. I mantain everything I said about Vidal, but to be fair none of these...

    He actually looks like he's been crying in that pic.

    :lol: fair play! Educational and entertaining. Thanks for the post! :lol: I don't know how you cope with your team just being ripped apart at the whim of others and get back on the proverbial horse again and again like nothing has happened. We...

  14. Fortitude replied to the thread Season upon season: what clubs must be the most depressing to support?.

    I'm surprised at all the shouts for lower league clubs, to be honest. All my mates who follow teams outside the top flight have a mindset where they enjoy the day out, accept their lot in life and move on to the next game. Granted, I've no...

    The clubs you listed had nowhere to fall to, really, not relative to Arsenal who went from perennial title-chasers, to perennial top 4-chasers to whatever they are now in the space of what? 6-8 years? For a long time, it was a given Arsenal...
